The Baggies faithful are grateful for the 33-year-old's years of service but many think his time is up at the Hawthorns.
Indeed, supporters are grateful for the veteran's years of service at the Hawthorns but, based on his performances this season, a lot of them see no need to retain Olsson going into next campaign.
The past is the past and a legacy can be tainted by staying too long. Some West Brom fans feel Olsson has already overstayed his welcome, playing badly this term and being given the benefit of the doubt due to favouritism from Tony Pulis.
Olsson's stay is also a worry for those who feel it means Pulis will be staying with the Baggies long term.
There are, of course, those who still back the 33-year-old - and feel replacing him is far from the Midlands club's biggest priority anyway. But, generally, the consensus on Olsson's new deal is far from positive. People are a lot happier about Gareth McAuley staying...
Great that we've signed GMac up, personally would of let Olsson go though #wba— Liam Jones (@Liam_Jonesy) April 15, 2016
Thrilled to hear the news that McCauley has signed a new contract. Not sure about olsson tho #wba— james hamilton (@jamesha35035082) April 15, 2016
hate wba fans who are slagging off olsson about the new deal. His been an amazing servant for the club, he isnt even bad!— Sunil (@SunilJ3) April 15, 2016
People aren't happy but Olsson's new deal makes sense, we need a lot of signings in the summer, replacing our 4th choice CB can wait #wba— Darren Price (@dazbaggie) April 15, 2016
G Mac / Olsson sign new deals then, Just my opinion I'm glad One has the other should of been moved on #wba— Matthew Fleet (@MAF79) April 15, 2016
Fair enough give Olsson a new contract he's been instrumental for us in the past but I hope Pulis has someone else in mind he's past it #wba— Kieran Doody (@kierandoody) April 15, 2016
@Heidi_wba lol. Not happy about Olsson trying to imitate Beckenbauer badly again next season— Albion dreamer (@colley62) April 15, 2016
