From my experience as Football Secretary over the years, to get players to sign a contract at this time of the season is usually a lot cheaper than getting them to sign one in July or August. We have some great players at the moment, who are no doubt attracting attention from higher leagues, so to get them to commit to another season with us is great news.
I don't think we should have any players on contract until we are financially sound, which we clearly aren't.
TT I was always told by board members that contract players like for like with non contract players is an extra 25%, so on that basis We should only have our elite players ( I can only think of 4-5 ) and mgt team on contract terms IMO, I dont think anyone has the 2 recently signed in that bracket OK for the squad but not elite by first 11 terms look at Evans for example a highly paid contract player who has only started 1 or 2 games and we cannot move Him on ! it is nonsense for a club with our budget constraints. I guess We have to trust Carl and the board on this -but concerned about it. UTA
