The new contract.
Well if I have read that he had declined a new contract I would have been more worried - But I must admit I was surprised , for the following reasons:-
1. His existing contract had a good whack to run
2.There seemed no obvious opening for him elsewhere - He wasn't about to be poached (so far as I know)
3.This season could still go horribly wrong.
That said with all the shite headlines that have come out of VP in recent years - this isn't the worst move the club have made. DS still learning at this level, but I think he recognises that - He hasn't got stuck into a dogmatic approach - and has subtly changed things as the season has gone on
