Jack Baird - 1 yr extension


Recommended Posts


Delighted with this. Have been a fan of Jack's since he came into the team two years ago. He has made mistakes along the way, but has the potential to become a very good central defender. Fared far better beside Gary Mack, a helping hand and experienced head. Seems Jack Ross sees the potential in the youngster.

Yeah good news. Jack is developing into a very good player. Just needs someone sensible beside him, or a nutjob like Gary MacK.

We really need to get big Gary Mac signed up. This has to be near the top of Jack's to do list.

Any gossip on whether we tried/are trying to tie him down for longer? :oohlala

He's had his ups & downs but at 21 if you rate him then he's worth 2 years.

Anyway glad to see another member of our season-end side will be there in August!

Surely two years should have been a minimum offer? If he carries on developing he will walk for peanuts if his contract is up next summer.

Absolutely agree, however there is the possibility that the player didn't want a 2 year deal.

And if he doesn't continue developing we're stuck with him for a year longer.  I think he's likely been offered a year to see if he can cement a first team place.  Got to imagine we'll have three or maybe four center backs fighting for position again. I'm in no doubt if he was offered two years he'd of taken it.

Jack Baird is a good young centre back who is still improving. Why the desire to mock him? Has great potential, despite a few grumbling voices on here, some of whom seem peeved at being proven wrong regarding his being handed a new contract...

So Eckersley at 32 is worth a 2 year deal , but a 21-year old Baird who has been mentioned by pundits as a possible full international gets just one year? 

Two steps forward.....

If the player only wants a 1 year deal, it's either that or nothing I'm afraid.

This is a good deal for Jack and the club IMO. The reality is that GMac resigning will be a priority and Jack brought Davis in for a reason in January. Whether he comes back or not is irrelevant as we'll surely look to sign another experienced CB?
As good as Jack has been recently I still believe GMac and AN other would be our CB pairing next season.

Might be wrong though.
