I don't think Slade is doing bad enough to be dropped, but I'd love to see his bench spot go to Joe Stimson who I think is as solid a defender and offers a bit more in attack. Perhaps CB is reluctant to mess with the lineups this close to the GF though which would be fair enough. I guess if it aint broke don't fix it...

Ohhh I'm so disappointed ...I don't care what any of you say I love Slade (I agree he is slow though) I'll miss seeing him at the club

As a big fan of Slade, I think this is great news for the Falcons.

I dont mind him staying but wouldn't it be a better playing opportunity at Newcastle?
If B.Smith is left in reserve grade next year I'm not confident we'll keep him.

Exactly my concern also. B Smith fit and firing has to fill that bench utility spot. He has to... Not just through fear of losing him. He offers that true spark you typically want from a bench utility.

No way Brandon Smith will be left in reserve grade. Won't happen.

Not sure I understand the logic from either side. Our best player plays the position and we've just given his successor a long term deal. But we also want to keep the other guy around? You'd think Griffin would want a better chance at playing regular first grade for longer.

Yep this. Let's not forget that B. Smith has very recently re-signed until the end of 2022 (with a contract he signed before there being any talk of Griffin leaving) so I think it's fair to say there's no way in hell that Smith is going anywhere

We all expect an invite to the celebration party Blazza...
