    Well generally true but a few of the current mob would have played at 2016.

    Having seen the goal think the NI goalie was more at fault for not coming straight out with confidence and assurances.

    He sort of just stood there waiting for the ball to come to him - inexperienced I guess.

    Cathcart has probably done the same a few times this season and knows Foster will come rushing out and take the ball.

    Deserved, I would say. Not always our best centre half, but definitely our most consistent. Who would have thought all those years ago when we had him on loan that he would probably rack up as many appearances as he has for us. Certainly not me, I was one of the many who used to call him Carthorse.

    Nothing against Cathcart but 4 years is excessive. What is wrong with letting average players earn 1 or 2 year extensions. This is the route that leads to the likes of Prodl festering contributing zero and you can’t offload them because nobody will match contract length.

    In effect it was a 2 year extension as he was already contracted to 2021.

    Presumably it's a pay rise on the back of a decent season, maybe even triggered by a set number amount of appearances?

    Good week for him then - 2 wins in the Internationals and a new contract .

    He’s a natural replacement for Mapps in the Mariappa role. Sensible thinking by the club.

    Played brilliantly against Estonia and Belarus too.

    I met him in Estonia and had a good chat with him, he's very down to earth. Joked to me that the FA Cup Final was the worst day of his life!

    I would guess the reason why we're doing this is to get a fee for him in 2-3 years rather than risk him leaving on a free. Wouldn't mind seeing him as a starter next season, 2/3 years' time is a stretch though

    Again not Cathcart specific, but right now I’d rather release Prodl on a free at pushing 32 than have to pay him 35k per week for another 2 years in the hope that someone pays a fee. Sometimes in my view it’s best to have flexibility to free up wages rather than hope to get a nominal fee because you’ve put a veteran on a long contract.
