next season is the last.
if we go up or make the play offs he will get another 5years before he reaches the last year of his current deal.

Will he get a new contract next summer then? Or will Gibson take the chance that another team doesn't try to nick him?

who thought giving him a 5 year deal would be a good idea. in fact, 5 years for any manager is high risk.

i cant believe it.

Didnt he still have a two year playing contract remaining when he took over, but on higher wages?

Five years doesnt seem unreasonable to me, we are a club that takes a long term view. There are bound to be exit clauses though, we wouldnt have had to pay him up in full if Gibbo had wanted him out after a year.

I bet GS can't believe his luck. He has no accountability whatsoever.

Someone told me last week that his contract was actually extended last season for another three years. First time I've heard this particular rumour though so I take it with a pinch of salt
