Not sure about that tbh. Shaw had made 2 appearances for the club last season. One off the bench and one start.

 

At that point I think he would have jumped at the chance of a 2 year deal with 1 year extension clause put in. As a Sheffield lad at 18, I bet he would have signed it. 
 

Instead we spent the summer signing and offering contracts to the likes of Kachunga, Brown, Windass, Marriott and Flint. 
 

And then we decided to put Shaw in the first team and all of a sudden we realise we’ve got a player on our hands who is out of contract. 
 

And here we are now. Losing our brightest young prospect for peanuts.

He a confident lad and I sure he will think the more he is played the more teams will want him. Its not like Shaw trying to take advantage of a few fluke performances.

So can there be a sell on clause ?

Hasnt he got a 70% win rate? 

Pretty good stats I'm just reading. 16 defeats in 110 games. 

Imagine managing man City with all their resources cash, ground, marketing etc against Burton every week almost and a Bolton or Charlton a few times a season. 

 

Was checking Average attendances for spl. 

Only rangers ant celtic averaged above 18,000. Out of all the other clubs only 3 managed 17,000+. 

This is why win percentage means nothing unless its in the same league. 

It's like comparing Gerrard & lampards managerial carears so far. 

Yes Gerrard is running away with the league, but difference between spl and epl is massive.

The Pulis-Lennon axis that set up the Shaw deal has been broken.

 

Lennon "resigned" or was fired today.

 

The word is that Celtic will look to Europe for a new Manager.

 

Shaw sh*t on SWFC, the club that reared abnd developed him for over 10 years.

 

It may not end well for him in Scotland.

 

 

I was told by a source very close to the club that Shaw, who was earning £550 a week was offered an improved contract of £650 a week. Celtic offered £8k a week. I really don't think it is Shaw doing the "pooing on" to be honest.

Shaw signed a pre contract  deal.... he's gone get over it. Unless he hasn't signed then it's over and shouldn't play again for us. It's a bad example for other youngsters and Celtic won't want him risking himself towards end of the season.

 

Besides that KEEP Neil Lennon away from us can't stand him!!!!!

I also have a 100% win record in arm wrestling against my eight year old son.

Doesnt make me a world class arm wrestler.

Context important in these win % stats - Lennon was hopeless at Bolton.

Let him win at least once 😂

 

I dont think its ever enough to be 2nd I  that league. 

It was always nailed on for Gerrard to get Rangers firing sooner or later. He will probably replace Klopp sooner or later too.

 

Im not a Neil Lennon fan boy and you are right - at Bolton he was terrible and I  wouldn't want him here. I would however love to have a manager that gets above a 50% win rate

Completely agree.

But also imagine if our fanbase was going as mental as they seem to be for Lennon to leave after not really losing that many games?

He did worse at Hibs and was a favourite up there

Players can sign pre contract agreements with loads of clubs it’s not 100% done deal it’s just putting down on paper what they have offered him.

Really?

 

Are there any examples of players signing pre-contract agreements with more than one club?

 

I'd have thought that signing a pre-contract with one club would be final and binding, otherwise what's the point?

They still have to pay compensation which could end up being a couple of million.


Celtic on the other hand can pick him up for less than 300k.

 

I rate Shaw, I think he has all the attributes to be a top player. But still for Premier League clubs it’s a gamble considering most have their own young players they’re developing and giving first team opportunities too.

 

We were in a very strong position to get him tied down long term and let him develop in our team. But our failure to tie him down left the door wide open for a club like Celtic to take a gamble on the lad.

 

What evidence have you got that any English club would have to pay a couple of million for him if it went to tribunal?

 

The kid has around half a dozen first team games, scored 1 goal and been sent off twice.

Ben Davies apparently signed a pre-contract deal with Celtic recently.

He has since signed permanently for Liverpool.

Not a great CV is it reading it like that.

Obviously I don’t know for Shaw’s individual case. But a lot of compensation figures are in the millions. 
 

Celtic will be getting him for less than an English club would.

It turns out he didn't sign the pre-contract agreement with Celtic, despite reports to the contrary...

 

Liverpool exploited a Celtic contract clanger to steal Ben Davies from the Scottish champions.

 

The Preston defender was all set to move north of the border on July 1 after agreeing personal terms on a pre-contract, with his Deepdale deal ending in the summer.

 

But Sunday People Sport can reveal that Celtic inserted a clause requiring the 25-year-old to be injury-free and fit to play when reporting for duty.

 

While Davies wavered Liverpool jumped in to agree a deal worth up to £1.6 million with Holland Under-19s defender Sepp van den Berg going the other way on loan.

 

Celtic boss Neil Lennon was left frustrated, believing he had landed the impressive central- defender for free.

 

https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/liverpool-ben-davies-signing-celtic-23454860

 

It seems like the terms of the contract were agreed, then altered at the last minute by Celtic, which delayed the signing on the dotted line and allowed Liverpool to sneak in.

Fair enough, but in the same sense, unless anyone has seen a signed contract how do we know that Shaw has agreed it all but not actually signed something binding? It was widely reported seemingly incorrectly that Davies had signed.

Evidence? I know you like details to be provided.

 

Maybe he would have cost a little more than the reported £300,000 it will cost Celtic but if he is so sought after that is still a drop in the ocean for PL clubs.

We don't.

 

That was my point earlier in the thread.

 

If he's agreed terms but not signed anything, then there's a chance he might stay; if he's signed, then that's that, surely?

 

I've just never come across a situation where a player had signed a pre-contract agreement with more than one club...well, except for Obi Mikel, and that ended up getting a bit messy, didn't it!?

From what I've read a pre contract is not necessarily legally binding, it depends what's included in it.

 

Are Pre-Contracts binding?

The enforceability of a pre-contract will depend on the specific terms of the agreement. Pre-contracts are generally not binding under English law as they are usually marked ‘Subject to Contract’ and are simply a commitment by the parties to enter into a later contract. The difference between a pre-contract and a contract is that the parties to the pre-contract have not agreed the essential terms and so the pre-contract does not reflect the final agreement. However, if a pre-contract contains all the essential terms that have been agreed, then the pre-contract is effectively a final contract and is likely to be binding.
