It’s the second five-year contract in the space of a week.

Although given who has signed this latest deal, I think it’s more important than the previous one.

Captain Liam Cooper has signed a new deal at the club, keeping him at Elland Road until the summer of 2024. Cooper first signed for the Whites back in 2014 when we signed him from Chesterfield and has gone on to make 165 appearances in all competitions for the club and was given the armband back in 2017.

Although he has developed a bit of a nickname amongst some of the supporters, ‘Calamity Cooper’. One of the best examples comes from last season, even though it wasn’t entirely his fault, he certainly did have a part to play in the goal that brought Derby County back to life in the play-off semi-final last year, so it’s not entirely unwarranted.

It looks as if fans have cast aside the ‘Calamity Cooper’ tag just for one day as they congratulated the captain on signing a new deal at the club.

Although I am slightly annoyed nobody went with the ‘Oh captain, my captain’ line when the situation was clearly begging for it.
