I think the fact that he never played enough games to trigger an extension tells its own story in the end.....

Read an article not long back (haven't got time to source the link) where James Morrison stated he'd been fit to play for ages but just hadn't been picked.
It doesn't matter how many resources you have.
If you don't know how to use them, they will never be enough.
Oh, and always remember to defecate on those Vile chaps in claret and spew.

I spoke to him few days before Leeds away and asked if he was fit, he said he just couldn't get a look in

I guess it's likely that Morrison's injury woes in the first half of the season were the final straw for the powers that be and didn't want him to activate the extra year.

And rightly so in my opinion.

As much as I love everything he's given us, in this instance I agree also.

Big wages..... which given his injuries of late and age - cannot be justified.

Great servant and another all time club man imo. Another who became one of us. Yet also another many of our bus to catch so called supporters couldn't wait to be rid of.

Totally agree about the quality and length of his service. Despite this though I firmly believe he was released at the right time. Measure the number of appearances in last 2 years against money paid to him and the reason is clear.

Yes, no problem with releasing him and i agree he should have been released a couple of seasons ago along with Brunt, even though they are my two favourite recent players. But as we have seen, players read social media and think fans are having a pop at them or are being ungrateful for their service. Been a good player, thanks but now do one is how it comes over.
The club is to blame for giving out contracts, Mozza and Brunty have always been loyal and renewed them, a case of damned if you do damned if you don't.
People keep telling me that WBA is a business and is run like one.
Why then do we keep resigning players who's best days are gone, or signing players who are past it and we aren't going to get any money off when it comes to selling. That isn't good business at all.
When i worked in engineering you didn't keep repairing old machines and buying obsolete ones.
Well actually my firm did, which is why i ended up on the council.

I get what you say DW. I work in engineering too, and we keep using old machines!  ;D
