Unless it's about keeping the squad happy and focused on reaching the goal? The Klich deal was probably a year too long, Dallas as well, maybe even Coopers, none of that will matter if we get promoted.
If we do not get promoted, we bring in a new manager and he wants to refresh the squad it will be more of a concern. But if that happens it's likely both Radz and Orta will be gone as well, we might be owned by Qatar, so we'll have a heck of a lot more to think about. Thinking about the Qatar link, perhaps that's the reason for the new contracts and their length? Maybe Qatar want to make sure all the first time squad are tied to long contract before they come in?
Yeah I'm sure QSI were awaiting us to sign up a bunch of players who can't do it
