Lambert: Wilson Contract Extension Something We Need to Look At
Thursday, 3rd Oct 2019 13:28
Town boss Paul Lambert has praised central defender James Wilson’s performances since he joined the club in the summer and says extending the Welshman’s short-term contract beyond January is something that needs to be looked at.
The 30-year-old joined the Blues on trial in the summer and did enough to be offered a five-month deal which runs until New Year's Day.
Having made his debut at Burton on the opening day Wilson, who had departed Lincoln by mutual consent earlier in the summer, has now made eight starts.
Asked whether the 20-year-old was unlucky not to be involved last weekend as the Blues beat Tranmere 4-1, Lambert said: “Yes, but he's a kid, and I think you've got to remember he's only a kid and he has to learn the good things and the bad things of football.
“He's done great when he's been played, and he's done really well when he hasn't played, he's trained really well. He's come on leaps and bounds, he really has. He’s done really good and whenever I play him, he's never let us down.”

The strangest and most disappointing aspect of this season has been lack of bounce.
Demolition Man by tractorboykent
Paul Cook isn’t a man to mince words. Even though we are all sick of the continuing spiral of underachievement at Town, it was nevertheless still a bit of a shock to hear him lay into the 18 that capitulated to Wimbledon in what he described before kick-off as a season defining match.
Here We Go by tractorboykent
For a club recently described as Britain’s unhappiest, it may seem odd that Town fans are suddenly awash with optimism now that the deal is done.
One of the Strongest Squads? by NormEmerges
I keep hearing that ITFC has one of the strongest squads in League One. It’s certainly true that we have one of the biggest squads, but strongest? I would assume ‘strongest’ to mean ‘includes higher quality players for this league’. What do the facts tell us?
Tractor Boy on a Mission by wadey
As some of you may be aware, we lost our little boy Tyler on 1st April 2012, aged just 15 months old. There was no cause declared and he just passed away in his sleep. Since then, I’ve tried to raise as much money for charity in memory of him.
