JT mentioned on Twitter that ‘Macca thought to be very close to re-signing’......It all appears to have gone really quiet over, what seemed to be like a done deal!

I hope Hurst isn’t in for him with Dean Henderson looking Villa bound!!

Hopefully I’m just being a little impatient!!

If I was him, at 28 and with GTFC allowing his contract to expire, I would look to move on and earn as much money as possible at a genuinely ambitious club. He owes us nothing, he has improved this season as he enters his prime years as a goalkeeper. I hope he stays but I wouldn;t begrudge him a good move.

Equally we haven’t heard any rumours of him going elsewhere though have we? All the players are either in play off games or on holid, it’s always like this at the start of windows.

Jeez, how long has he got to make his mind up? 10 minutes?!

He owes nobody. Let him have a break and weigh up his options. It's not his fault that tweet happy modern hacks spout any old tosh they hear on the grapevine (or infer from the crumbs the clubs throw them).

We can all speculate and in reality it boils down to 3 main things :
Money. Family. Ambition.

If he's offered 1k a week here and 1.2k to play on Scotland, chances are he'd stay here as although it's slightly more he's more settled here. Saying that, ambition wise he'd get to play at a couple of big clubs and even have an outside chance to play in Europe.
If he's offered more than double he is here, it's a no brainer unless his family really are fully committed and settled here.

I've heard he has been offered substantially more and a longer contract elsewhere and has thrown the ball back in GTFCs court to see if they are willing to come close to matching it.  We will see how highly we value him but on the evidence of recent players of the season I would be surprised to see him here next season

And I can sum it all up in just one word: courage, dedication, daring, pride, pluck, spirit, grit, mettle, and G-U-T-S, *guts*.

If he can double or more his wages then we can not compete with that,

Macca might not want to move so a decent pay rise and a 3 year deal might swing it for us.

If he goes we can not blame him can we ?
