I think i can handle one of the oldboys remaining but my preference would have been Barry.

After a knee op at the age of 38?

No, Gaz Baz needs to retire now.

He was a good player on his day and enjoyable to watch.
Wish him all the best for the future.

A very high quality Premier League attacking midfielder in his day. He's been slowed down badly by injury in recent years. Thanks for the worldies and the memories Mozza. All the best. Hopefully gets that testimonial.

Mozza has given us some great memories over the years. My personal fave being his reaction in front of the Wolves fans to one of the goals in the 5-1 win! He's a cheeky chappy and often underrated by many.

Thanks Jimmy!

Loved having him here, although it is a shame that in recent years he has spent so much time on the injury list. He has been one of our best attacking midfielders in my lifetime.

Would go to his testimonial if he gets one.

Thank you Mozza.

States in the Express and Star tonight that he DID have extra 12 months in his favour but did not play enough games to trigger it

It was a one-year deal with 12 months extra in his favour, but the 33-year-old did not play enough games last season to trigger that option.

Albion’s long-serving midfielder will officially be a free agent on Monday, and has so far not been invited in for training by Bilic.

If this is to be the end of the road for James with us, I sincerely hope the club invites him back in the near future so that the fans can show their appreciation for what he did for us and give him a good send off.

Thank you for your service to our club James, you’ll always be a Baggie to us

I think his day has been and gone but I really loved him at his best, a superb player and an Albion favourite for me.

James all the best to you.

Right decision, a few years too late. Some cracking goals, ones v blackburn away and man utd at home spring to mind. Part of the reason we became established as a pl club we never upgraded on him, which is part of why we are where we are.

He deserves his testimonial and i hope we give it him
O Albion we love you

Definitely the right time for him to go.

Great player for us over the years but too many injuries and taken too long to recover from them in recent seasons.

Hope he gets a testimonial match and not just the dinner he had the other month.

All the best Jimmy.

Should never have been retained last season and his wage could have been spent far more wisely elsewhere, but fantastic servant to the club.

The midfield with him, Dorrans and Mulumbu brought me some extremely happy times.

Great servant to us over the years. Blighted by injury but still made a big impact on our last ten years history. Absolutely the right time to let him go too.

All the best Mozza

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