In fairness, DC could offer that.....along with a complementary 10 year box sweetener.


WTF: 

Bit personal. New car smell?

Doubt it’d break the bank to keep him. Let’s do it.

 No brainer , decent left back , in form. Also not a past it , massive wage crock like half the dross we’ve kept onto for too long in recent years 

 

And guess who signed him.

 

None other than your old favourite Carlos.

Depends what the plan is with Penney.

 

We have him as a left back, potentially Foxy bingo & Palmer as cover. Which 2 combined are the cheapest?!

Based on current form, yes. 

 

That said, I'm always conscious that players tend to improve as their contracts come to an end. Assuming he does stay, a position where we need to recruit in the summer for competition.

Fox is one of those where you could use the old argument of "we need better if we are serious of challenging for top 2"

 

On the flip side you ask who then? Who could we get who's available within our budget and is better than Fox. I can't think of any 

 

New deal should be offered for me whilst also looking for some good competition for him to keep him on his toes. 

 

Real question is would he want to stay?

Arguably been one of our most consistent and most improved players ever since half way through last season. If he stays in form and injury free, he could end up being our player of the season. Deservedly as won over his doubters and deserves a new deal. Wouldn't be surprised if he makes it into the Welsh squad for the Euro's too.

Definite extension of 2 years minimum. He’s played very well over the last year or so at a high championship level in my opinion. Not the greatest going forward buy he does have a good cross on him. I do think he’s a very good defender tho and excellent in the air.

It takes a lot of character to turn things around like he has.. well worth a contract..

Keep the lad who has played in our last 16 games, usually extremely well, scoring two goals from full-back?

 

er, yes.

Deal, if he left we'd have to get two left backs.

 

Rather give fox a deal get 1 left back in and then someone for another position!

Absolute no brainer to offer him a deal.

 

He's been one of our most consistent performers this season, and has proven himself to be a sound Championship full back.

 

He'll be in demand.

 

His skillset suits Monk's philosophy as well. He's a full back who's strong aerially, and main strength is his ability when defending. He's not a marauding, attacking full back that so many managers like these days, but he offers a good support option for Harris. 

 

Two year deal for a player currently in his peak age is a must.

I think it's the wrong question.

 

Does Fox want to sign a new contract for us?   Clearly, one will be offered - probably equal or better terms, but does Fox want to stay or does he fancy his chances (and possibly a bigger pay rise) elsewhere?

 

All things equal, I think i've seen on the pitch that Fox is enjoying himself recently.  Based on that I think he'll sign a new contract, and that's good for both parties.

Since he’s been managed by Bruce and Monk he has improved a lot and more like the player that was attracting attention in his early Charlton days. So we need to keep him as replacing him for another championship standard left back might not be easy/cheap

Keep, like Costello said, the lads got character, we need someone with bottle to back Reach up, who will hopefully stay on the left.

 

As for people saying a 1 or 2 year contract, why would he sign a 'short' term contract at 26?

 

We should offer him 3 years, if he carries on improving he'll still be a saleable asset after 1 or 2 years.

100% deal, he looks a bit gormless but right now that's the only thing I've got against him. 

 

The passion he is showing, his strength of character, his ability to cross a ball and frequently be in the right place to clear one of the line are some of the many qualities he has. 

 

Rather keep hold of him than sign another Urby.
