The goalkeeper joined on a short-term agreement towards the start of this term and has been penning month-to-month deals having spent a lengthy period on the sidelines with a serious knee injury between October and January.

But Brewers boss Gary Rowett has seen enough of the fit-again 27-year-old, who has managed 14 appearances either side of his injury setback, to offer him an extended deal.

"It's terrific that we have now got Stuart signed up not only for the remainder of this season but also for next season as well which is important," Rowett told the club's official website.

"He did really well for us in the first part of his spell when we went eleven games unbeaten. He got his injury but he has come back really quickly from that and played the last three games where we have been unbeaten again, including two away games where our form of late hasn't been good.

"But hopefully that form is improving now and Stuart can have a big part to play again."

his isn't directed at Van Gaal in particular, but, let's be honest, you don't have to be a tactical genius to beat Arsenal at the moment do you? I will say one thing...he put Van Persie on Monreal deliberately? Our Robin hardly had a touch did he? So did that really work? Hmmm....I'd stick to substituting Keepers (yes,yes, it was directed towards him in the end....)

hat a load of Bull***t. DiMaria hardly had a kick and they won because of a dodgy offside and a breakaway goal when Arsenal were chasing. Good luck to them they got their points but to try and claim this as some sort of tactical masterstroke is laughable, It was luck pure and simple.

Equating Rodgers To Hodgson. Oh Dear Me.

It's a Mailbox many will have been waiting. Brendan Rodgers gets a little bit of a stick, but there is at least praise for Manchester United,Van Gaal, Palace and Tottenham...

Oh Arsenal. Why Oh Why Oh Effing Why?

We have plenty of fallout from Arsenal's latest display of outrageous incompetence, plus the question of why every team seems to be getting worse. Plus, another Garcia ghost goal...
