Good, with a bit of luck one of our players can do the bastard for Isaac.
Thanks for keeping us up, Harry.

For now. I can't see how they can afford to sack him, pay him and his staff and recruit a new manager et all

Hutton signs a new deal, bit of a surprise that one, must be on drastically reduced terms

Excellent. They have given a new contract to the guy who let Cairney run behind him for the promotion winning goal. :D

can they afford to keep paying him? the fact he's stayed on and they've signed hutton again makes me think they've somehow found a loophole to get them out of the brown smelly stuff :X

I'm not sure a loophole is needed for a 33 year old defender signing on for another year on lower wages.

Probably cheaper for them than signing a younger player as have to pay the signing on fee plus a longer contract in all likelihood.

I agree with you.

We've been through this ourselves, when you are in the crap and can't bring players in - sometimes recontracting the existing players is all you can do.

It's not like they've broken the bank to persuade him to stay I wouldn't think.

Even bringing in a decent loan player or free transfer would probably have been quite a bit more expensive overall.

They still need to sell players they can get money for and drastically reduce their outgoings. This fits in perfectly with that.

They have signed a player who no one else wanted on a free transfer for less than what they were paying the guy before. It just happens to be the same bloke.

Cool your jets, their problems ain't going away.

And probably part of wor Bruce's ultimatum, he loves Hutton.

"Wor Alan needs to stay, he's an honest boy and with wor injuries that we keep getting we need his experience, if we had eleven Alan Hutton's we'd be okay"

etc etc

Or they've got him to sign a contract so they can get a decent wedge for him instead of letting him go on a free...

Forest wanted him.

Tony has realised he can't replace him for any cheaper than it would be to extend his contract.

A sign they are shafted

Generally - the Hutton thing is a bit weird.

It doesn't seem so long ago that villa fans absolutely hated him.

They bombed him out and loaned him out everywhere - then, he had a couple of good games and they gave him a new contract which seemed bizarre.

By last season they seemed in love with him again.

Fickle?

It's like when they hated Flabby and reckoned he symbolised all that was rotten about the club...until he waddled on and scrambled a goal in against us...at which point they started talking about him getting a new contract.

I'm sure Forest offered him more, he said all along he'd take a pay cut as family were settled in the area

Yep.

Plus his previous contract was probably a bit silly and the new one is only half as silly.

People aren't going to be queuing up to pay silly money to a 33 year old full-back at this level.

This just looks short-term. If they had an actual plan they would have let Hutton go and invested time in Bree who is talented and at the other end of the age scale. Especially given that they also have Al-Mohamady who is loved by Bruce and not young.

There again - they have been playing Hutton at left-back rather than Taylor who was also an actual decent player until they turned him to crap.

Can't follow that at all. Article suggests that someone spent £170m buying the entire company, shares, property, stock, everything.

But also that between April 2017 and March 2018 - when Xia owned the company - the company basically mortgaged the lot. So that's presumably where Vile's funding was coming from.

Can't work out though whether Xia losing his interest is because he's not kept up with the repayments.

Only like us renewing Spector's contract on reduced terms when we were in the shit.

If they're in no hurry to leave it makes sense for all parties
