I reckon Carl has been the signing of the season. He has put in some excellent performances despite being moved around the back four and for me, he is nailed on for player of the year! Not bothered if it's still October, I've already filled my nomination form in!! How Gateshead decided to release him, I will never know.

I know we have this one year contract policy but I do think in certain situations and for certain players we should look to add an additional year around Christmas time and along with established players like Aswad Thomas and Shaun Pearson, Carl should be offered a new deal any time soon. Effectively, when players contracts are up, we are in a bidding war if players have done well for us. The manager knows the players personality by now, he knows which players are going to give their all. Why risk losing them on frees? They will only have to be replaced with players you know little about?

No arguments there, he's been superb. There seems to be plenty of "option for another year" type deals that are revealed at the end of the season. Hopefully Magnay's on one of those.

It is a GREAT point !!  I wonder how many points were lost after xmas in the last two seasons because players didnt want to put their foot in ??  Magnay , Clay , Brown should all be given that extra year now if we are serious about moving forward IMO


]Remember its just my opinion  ..... It might not be true ............

Totally agree.

Been brilliant for us and would like to sign him up for longer but  history wise we as a club dont really discuss contracts until the end of the season.

Would like him to be on a longer deal.

I am sure we will have an option on him for a second year,

So he will still be with us in L2.

I would imagine Carl would want to know what league we will be in next season before committing. No harm in asking though as some players just want stability and security etc.

Can't we just include a clause where his contract changes if we are promoted? Works on FM anyway!

I wasn't aware the club had a one year policy for contracts! I know a lot of players are signed for one season only but that is just a safe guard in case they either don't turn out as thought or maybe not envisaged as able to play at a higher level. I'm sure PH will have already seen what Magnay is capable of and I'm sure he could easily hold his own in League 2.
