Another great player for us leaves without a trophy. Sad times. Loved Jagielka, great player.

Think he will play one more year and then could see him being a decent pundit.

Seems almost criminal that the likes of him, Pienaar, Arteta etc. never won anything here. 

Also, Jags should've played a lot more than he did for England, FWIW...  Then again, he'd have likely been tapped up and fucked off years ago if he'd had more call-ups!   

Thanks Phil, and all the best for the future.

Great player for us and great professional.

I think he is one of those characters that will be very much missed in the changing room.

Hell be sorely missed hes been a great example to others and never failed to give his absolute best for the club.

One of our best ever value for money signings and for a period one of the best in the prem.

Absolute travesty he never got a trophy here, truly heart breaking.

A proper captain, on and off the pitch, genuinely gutted he's leaving

Love him and always will.  Sounds like we dicked around making the decision (boo!) so hope there are no hard feelings and perhaps can be on the touchline one day.

That thunderbolt at Anfield alone would make him a legend.

Think the wording of his announcement was a bit of a dig at all?

It is criminal that the players of that era won nothing.The irony is the one final we got to in 2009 Jags Arteta and the yak,the spine of the team all had long term injuries and missed that game.Ten years on I still think what would have happened had all three been fit.
Good luck jags and thanks for the memories.

Was more the Uefa cup run in 08 for me - had we managed another goal in that fiorentina game (Frey in goal for them was unbelievable that night) we were winning it that year, we'd already beaten the eventual winners in the group stage and rangers drew their way to the final.

Yea d15tin that was another one that got away.I bet that keeper never played another game like that ever.And irony again Jags was one of the lads that missed a pen in the shootout.

When he first joined us as a DM I was dismayed. He then turned to CB and became such an important player for us. A great role model and s proper Blue who got us and what we're about. Sorry to see you go Jags but probably the best all round. Once a blue Jags!!!

I absolutely love Jags and really sad to see him go.

Watching him shackle Torres, when he was at the top of his game, in the derby was a thing of beauty. He didn't have a clue how Jags was keeping up with him and shutting him down. I do think he was underrated by everyone other than us lot.

I can't see him fitting in at Sheffield United - doesn't Wilder have pacy, attacking centre halves that bomb forward and make crosses? Can't see Jags fitting in there.
