Eccleston rejects new contract

Recommended Posts

I wonder who offers them contracts these days? Rafa can't do all that shit as well can he?

As for SD's point, surely if Eccleston has been paying attention he can see that Babel and Voronin are ahead of him in the pecking order, neither of whom the manager has any trust in. We've got a shit load of injuries, Eccleston's been on the bench a couple of times, there's never been a better time for him to get a chance at a top club.

 

That's the way I would see it of course - he might have been offered a chance of some first team football elsewhere I guess, plus there was all that fucking about last year about him moving up to the reserves or not.

I think this is going to happen a lot now. One of the worries I have about us giving huge contract improvements to players like Agger, Yossi, Dirk, Masch etc - at the end of the day not superstars just first team regulars - is that all the playing staff's salary expectations will automatically rise when they see these over the top deals being agreed.

 

Really needs sorting out - but the precedent has now been set so it makes it harder. As in the summer it seemingly eats away at any cash tucked away for actual tranfer fees.

Yes but they have earned it over a few seasons. Has Eccleston? Nope.

It's not the point I was making though? My point was pay one person signifcantly inflated wages, then everyone will expect that little bit more (whatever the level/experience).

Did they say why he rejected it? Could just be money

 

 

 

Rafa never rejected an offer, they were in protracted negotiations, but he never rejected a proper offer.

 

 

 

Nah, we signed him from Bury.

 

I seem to remember quite a big spread Rafa did for Barrett in the Echo where he explained why he had rejected his contract, not embarked on protracted negotiations.

Point taken.

 

But I don't think there's a way to stop that without capping wages, bonuses etc. which won't happen.

It's the same in all walks of life where business is concerned.

And that was just the one they put in the paper.

He rejected it alright on more than one occasion I believe;

Comparing a reserve player and the man who has to run everything to do with the playing side of the club is pointless.

 

Who's comparing them? I'm just pointing out Rafa did reject a contract offer so you can't hold it against Eccleston if he thinks the deal isn't quite right'

 

Not that we do know the reason of course'

Didn't manure reject him before liverpool signed him?

 

sure did, he was born in manc land, really weird set up at melwood not sure if rafa just gets a raffle going to see whos next on the bench, I would really like to see someone be given a decent chance, with the exception of our good friend " David "tom Daly" Ngog"...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Do I know what rhetorical means?

I thought this kid signed a 3 year deal last year? In which case why are we offering him a new one? I've been wrong before mind but if we are offering a new one I can't think it would be worse terms than what he's on - so an extension maybe - in which case he's probably spot on waiting to see whether he's been given a chance in the next year or so.

he was a forward until he came here though.he'll learn that easily enough hopefully.

 

its not like rafa to play a forward on the right wing is it? (6)

 

 

ps-'fortune favours the brave'........hence,why we'll never win it under RB!

Why are we arsed about how defensive a striker is?

 

Thats how low we've come and in my opinion why we'll never sign those players which everyone else would/has in the past.

 

A Ronaldo/Ribery/Robben if you will

Amoo is playing right midfield this season if that's who he's on about being weak defensively.

 

If he improves his general play and finishing he could end up ads a striker cos i think he's played most of his time there.
