Wilson: I'd Love to Stay at Town
Monday, 14th Oct 2019 16:50
Central defender James Wilson says he’d love to stay with the Blues beyond the end of his short-term contract, which is up on New Year’s Day, but that no discussions have yet taken place.
"I'd love to stay," he told the club site. “There haven't been any discussions yet but hopefully it will get sorted, that's what I'd like to happen. There's no place I'd rather be right now.”
Speaking about extending the 30-year-old’s deal earlier this month, manager Paul Lambert said: “He's certainly doing himself no harm whatsoever and I'm pretty sure it's something we need to look at.”
Wilson joined the Blues in the summer following a trial having left Sincil Bank by mutual consent earlier in the close season.
Having made his debut on the opening day at Burton, the Wales international has now taken his appearance total to nine starts.
However, the one-time Bristol City trainee will miss Sunday’s live Sky game at Accrington Stanley as he is suspended following his red card at Fleetwood the weekend before last.
"I was gutted because I know I was on a booking but I didn't think I did enough to justify getting sent off," he added.
"That was frustrating but there are plenty of games still to go and hopefully I can play my part going forward."

Wing Wonders (Part Two) by ElephantintheRoom
As the sixties morphed into the seventies, wing wonders at Portman Road were a bit like London buses. Four had come along at once, though in truth one or two (like those same London buses) were also easy to miss.
2019/20 - Grating Expectations by tractorboykent
A lot of comments at the moment would suggest that we are in the midst of a(nother) crisis. Whilst the league table doesn’t reflect that, the perception is likely more based on our own expectations of where we’d be at this stage.
Wing Wonders (Part One) by ElephantintheRoom
It’s a curiosity of Town’s great years that the two big successes – winning the league under Alf Ramsey and the UEFA Cup under Bobby Robson were based on teams without true wingers.
John Cobbold’s Ace Gardener by ElephantintheRoom
For newer Town supporters perhaps, the name Colin Viljoen has disappeared into the mists of time. But for those of us who started supporting Town in the 60s his name is fondly recalled as a true great. His highlights reel alone (alas it exists only in memory) would mark him out as someone special.
Big Al by ElephantintheRoom
When the Kevin Beattie statue is revealed, I suspect it will be his great pal and fellow central defensive titan, Allan Hunter, who will do the revealing. What will be going through Big Al’s mind I wonder? Sadness at his friend’s passing – but mixed with fierce pride perhaps.
