I love Coufal but this new contract was unnecessarily too soon, IMO. He’s only had 1 season and hasn’t even started this season particularly well. Would’ve waited until at least after Christmas.

^^^^^

Is that what's called trolling?

Coufal owns our right side.

“Owns our right side”. Seriously!? :D How old are you?

No trolling involved whatsoever. Read what I typed again before you embarrass yourself further.

He’s only had ONE good season with us so far. And hasn’t played his absolute best at the beginning of the season. So why not wait until at least after Christmas? He’s 30 years old in under a years time. Still has 2 years left on his contract, with an option. Why the rush?

Morale, Motivation, making him feel like hes rewarded and earning closer to what others are payed who are performing similarly, Team harmony.

All the reasons really as to why the whole team are so happy right now.

Plenty of reasons why. You're just looking at the financial aspect and nothing else.

I think, with question marks over the other two right back options, who both are out of contract at the end of the season, it was a sensible move to tie down Vlad. You would think other clubs might be willing to turn his head with a decent pay rise. We can be certain that the owners, would take £20m, quadrupling their initial outlay if a big club came knocking.
The average age of the squad is on it's way down as well, when you look at who will be leaving next year, so keeping the odd 30 year old around, will add a bit of experience.

But surely the right message would be to keep the good performances up before giving Coufal a new contract and pay rise? We’re over 2 months into the season and IMO he hasn’t played at his best. We’ve had plenty of fullbacks in the past that had a good season before turning to sh*t the following season. If you had a work colleague that joined your company a year ago, did a great job and then didn’t perform as well for the past 2 months, would you be happy for your company to then give that individual a pay rise?

If Coufal wanted a new contract and pay rise, which I am sure he did, then I am sure he would’ve been motivated and professional enough to play to his potential until Christmas. Even the wages he is on now is still allegedly a lot more than what he was on at Slavia Prague. Let’s not forget that.

I bet you also said the same about Jenkinson, Schemmel and Ilunga too after 1 season, huh? :wink:

And danger of you offering anything meaningful to the debate? Unless you haven’t got the brains to do so.

Let,s trust Moyes. He knows exactly what should be done and signed. He knows him, he choose him. Coufal has been superb already in Slavia, I am not afraid of his qualities in next 2 yrs.

Personally I'm not seeing much of a dip in form this year. The fact he's not getting as many crosses in is more to do with the opposition teams identifying and trying to stifle our obvious threats. It doesn't take a genius manager to take a quick glance at the oppositions assists charts for last year to see where the main threats are. Defensively he's still been very sound. He's struggled at times when the opposition have doubled up on him - but every full-back would struggle in such circumstances. You can't be in two places at once. He's been up against some very good players so far this season - players that will do a good job against most, if not all fullbacks.

I'm far from convinced this or even asking fellow members how old they are contributes a great deal either. This isn't Facebook, let's not descend to those kind of levels.

Agreed. But neither is being told I am talking out of my backside either. :newthumb: Unless that’s the exception to the rule?

He needed a new deal, he deserves it and he’s earned it.

Pretty sure he was on lower wages than Fredericks who would’ve been on good money as he was a Bosman / “Free” transfer from Fulham.

Hopefully we’ll see Coufal with us for a good few more years, he’s been a massive step up from Zabaleta who was kept on for one season too many.
