• The germane facts about Greer

    Season 2014-15 has certainly been a disappointing one so far for the Albion in terms of results; two successive play-off finishes have raised expectations amongst the Albion faithful (and perhaps even more so amongst those whose faith is not quite as ardent, if attendances so far are any indication). However, there is no sign of panic from Albionís board (as evidenced by Tony Bloomís media appearances recently), and the playing staff seem equally as committed to the cause.

    Already this season we have seen Lewis Dunk ink a new four-year deal, a matter of days after Jake Forster-Caskey had committed to a new three-year contract. At the same time as JFCís deal, Christian Walton signed a long-term, four-year contract. And in September Andrew Crofts extended his contract until June 2016.

    However is appears that Gordon Greer may have signed an extended contract with the Albion last month:-

    Greer joined the Albion in July 2010 from Swindon Town (for a fee of £250,000), as Gus Poyet sought to put together a squad capable of challenging for promotion from League One. He originally signed a three-year deal with a club option for a fourth year, which was exercised in the summer of 2013. An extended two-year contract was agreed in August of that year after there were news reports that Leedsí manager Brian McDermott was interested in capturing Albionís captain.

    Greerís performances in an Albion shirt have not only helped the club to a divisional title and successive play-off appearances, they have also earned him a regular spot in the national Scottish squad. It would seem that he feels there is unfinished business as far as the Albion is concerned.
