Thank God they took Delafeu off.

Re: Zabaleta gets another year contract
The three worst things Zabaleta did today had nothing to do with pace - a shit pass which pretty quickly led to their goal, another shit pass which might actually been shit ball control, which gave them the ball in the penalty area and could've been disastrous, and a positional mistake which let them create another chance.

In fact, for the last one, he was pretty nippy over ten yards, and might've made a recovery tackle, had someone else (Diop?) not made it for him.

Like I said, I hope today is a one-off, but I'm worried someone's seen the portrait of him that he keeps in the attic.

Re: Zabaleta gets another year contract
Shame Fredericks had to go off as make no mistake Zab was very poor today, which for a player who in his prime was one of the very best is sad to see. It is very difficult for older players not getting much game time to come on and hit their stride straight away. He does have a role at the club but I'm hoping it's not out on the pitch for any length of time.

Re: Zabaleta gets another year contract
Fredericks doesn't really have a bad injury record. He played 119 games in 3 seasons prior to joining us.

Obviously very shortly after joining us, he sustained the worst injury of his career to date. TBH it has probably ended up doing him good. He was pretty poor at the start of the season in a team that was looking pretty poor overall, but came back looking a much better player.

Re: Zabaleta gets another year contract
My concern with Zab is that his performance today was shocking, and against a mid table side his lack of pace was shown up on more than one occasion. He’s a fabulous bloke to have in the dressing room and for the youngsters to learn off. But if we go into next season with Fredericks as first choice and Zab as the back up, considering Fredericks injury record Zab could easily be playing 20 games next season which I just don’t think he’s got in him

Re: Zabaleta gets another year contract
Yes, there were a few errors today but at the time, Watford were all over us.
Does he put in a shift? Yes.
Can we get better for free? Not likely.
Has he played well? Mostly.
Is he a great pro for youngsters to learn from? Definitely.
No brainer for me.

Re: Zabaleta gets another year contract
When you sign a contract extension it doesn't mean that you automatically get the same wage as when you first signed.

I'd imagine Zab will be on around 30 - 40,000 pw.

Re: Zabaleta gets another year contract
he's never been on £100k a week and whatever he earns, he's contributed far more than numerous cunts that have stole a living off the club for consecutive seasons. good luck to him, he earned another year

Re: Zabaleta gets another year contract
Could be that his contract said that if he played "x" number of games this season then there would be an automatic 1 years extension, £100k a week to basically sit on the bench apart from cup games that we will chuck as usual.

Re: Zabaleta gets another year contract
Bit unfair jumping on Zab for today. He's worked tirelessly all season and has had some very good games.

He'll be good to have around next year as emergency cover and to continue mentoring Rice and Fredericks. We've also got a very promising kid called Aji something or other and I'm sure Zab can have some influence over his progression.

'as bad as giving Wilshere a 3 year contract'


clueless cunt

Re: Zabaleta gets another year contract
If he sits on the bench as expected this will happen more and more, he gets rusty quickly - happens the older you get, he just couldn’t hit the ground running, well he could hardly run actually!!!

El Scorchio 7:04 Sun May 12
Re: Zabaleta gets another year contract
I think it's clear Fredericks is first choice for that spot now.

Zabaleta is an excellent man to have mentoring and motivating the younger players in the side though. He can play a role covering in a couple of positions, and I hope he'll start a coaching career with us.

gph 6:59 Sun May 12
Re: Zabaleta gets another year contract
He was complete rubbish by his own standards.

I hope it's a one-off

Re: Zabaleta gets another year contract
Came on today and got ripped apart for pace.

Even for a 34 year old, he is a moving statue that makes Noble look rapid.

Can't bare to watch him next season, will get absolutely shredded at every opportunity. Embarrassing 1 year extension, as bad as giving Wilshere a 3 year contract

He's league 2 level now and we should promote Johnson as backup RB

Re: Zabaleta gets another year contract
I saw Byram came back for Forest the other day after 7 months out
There will be buyers , maybe even Leeds to have him back

Agreed. Pre-season and in training hopefully Zaba and Mp can coach him and make him the player I think he can be.

dealcanvey 10:51 Thu May 2
Re: Zabaleta gets another year contract
Byram is also one of the many players on our books that is constantly injured.

Just 5 games this season!

Needs to be moved on.
