Well here we have it, Jack Wheelchair possibly out for the rest of the season according to reports. So we must be a very rich club to pay him such high wages over 3 years for what return.? So we still can't offer Rice a decent wage to get him to sign a long term contract, wonder what our priorities are, looking at a great young player to star for this club for many years OR paying disability Millions to a wheelchair case. Give me strength.

Hammer Man, I think you trying to get me going again😂🤣 Other posters on here are probably sick of my anti posts on JW, but I rise to the bait each time his name is printed on here🤣For the life of me I will never understand why we gave a 3 year deal for a well documented crock, should any fan with a modicum of football knowledge not predict this would happen, of course he was talented x years ago, but his injury problems have made him a long gone spent force! We don’t need him anyway thankfully!

I agree he is a talented player, but his history of being injured while at the gooners spoke for itself. When I heard he was being released by them I knew only one club would pay him a huge wage and sign him, unfortunately I was right. Not only sign him but give him 3 years! I for one could not see that we needed him, we have a strong mid-field and there were more younger reliable players on the market. Our board seem to have a rush of blood and make some stupid signings.

Well here I go again, banging on about the boy Rice. Another fine display at Newcastle on Saturday and all over the press about him this morning. I still can't believe this boy has not been sorted out with a long term contract. The big clubs are circling more and more after every game. Are our Chairmen that naïve that a bid won't be long coming in from one of the top 6 clubs. If we don't get his contract sorted then he will be gone. I hate to think how the supporters will react should he leave. Could it be Burnley all over again?

I agree that something is not right with the Rice situation. When a young player shows his ability any club would jump at the chance of tying him down to a long contract. To not progress with negotiations tells me that there is more to this situation than meets the eye. Any top club would have done the business by now so the question has to be asked why? What could his fee be now? But in 3 years time it could be sky high if he progresses as he is. I remember we had Michael Carrick who looked a world beater, but we lost him, we can't lose Rice in the same way.

Hi Hammer

I think the Carrick situation was slightly different as I think we were relegated, and not only did we need to sell off he would have been difficult to keep hold of him, but get your point

The more I think about if the more i'm convinced something has happened and this is not just straight negotiation talks, Sullivan is no fool when it comes to money and knowing his potential and value in the years to come, for the relative pittance Rice is after in football terms wages you would have thought this would have been put to bed months ago.

Dont suppose you heard anything new Ironmike?


2.) 28 Nov 2018 14:50:51
Could it be the new contract structure that the club want to implement is the issue?


3.) 28 Nov 2018 15:16:02
Maybe Jason

But it a pretty hard stance to take, . basically Sullivan is saying take what we offer or not. Rice says no and leaves on a free losing a possible £30m. Sullivan not stupid something else is going on that's the only reason for this in my view.

Why are our money men not giving Rice a new contract, can't they see this boys potential. Give him £80k a week and he is going to be that good bring back the number 6 shirt and give it to him. Bobby Moore would be pleased to see someone with such qualities wear his shirt.

Hammer Man, this has to be the most discussed subgest on this site? I cannot believe behind the scenes this must have been sorted one way or another? Rice could easily have said to the board, “up yours, I’m off” and the club are keeping it quiet, although I don’t believe that could happen without the press or someone leaking that story, or it has all been favourably sorted out for him to stay. Either way, Rice will be the winner and rightly so. there can only be one loser here and that’s our club and its fans! I hesitate to think what the fans reactions will be if another London club come in for him and he goes and who could blame him when we have the likes of Hernandez, Carroll, Wiltshire, who have made as good as no contribution to the club at all, drawing astronomical wages, it would give me the right efffing hump as it would most people!


2.) 26 Nov 2018 17:13:40
The main interest in Rice at the moment is from Man United, they may try a bid. Soon. IRONMIKE.


3.) 26 Nov 2018 21:30:34
Are our owners deliberately trying to test Rice's resolve and commitment to the club? It would be easy for a player's head to be turned by Man Utd.

Having been Rice's biggest fan for the last 2 years I would hate to lose him can see him being another Michael Carrick and we all know what happened their

If anyone at the club reads this page I think you all should ask yourselves "why haven't we locked down a new contract" come on guys wise up.

So what can the problem be by not getting Rice on a long term contract. Its about time we were told the truth, or is it just our board being stubborn. It can't be that the club can't afford it as we are paying squad players drastically over the odds.

The paramount thing that WH should do is get Rice on a new contract NOW. paying above average wages to has beens does not give a good impression to Rice, he must wonder what is going on around him. If we lose Rice it would be devastating to the supporters.
