And if he's fantastic for us (yes yes I know) and we only gave him a 2 year contract folks would complain about that. 3 years is about right for a player his age imo.

How many occasions have we had cause to bemoan a too-short contract in recent years, and how many times has giving long contracts bitten us spectacularly on the arse?

3 years isn't a long contract though.

it is when you're 30 in Sept and the pedigree is questionable

Virtually no player 32 or under would even sign a 2 year contract. The only 2 year contracts I can remember in recent times were Cole, Richardson and Lescott.

Only problem I have with this is say SB is sacked in October after a mediocre start to the season which is what plenty are predicting. Then a new manager comes in and decides to play 4 at the back. He likes Bree and Hutton for RB and thinks Adomah and Green is enough for right midfield.

Elmohamady on a three year deal becomes an issue then just like Habib Beye on a three year deal did although I'd like to think he isn't getting anywhere near 40k otherwise that would be seriously bonkers.

You can say that about nearly any player we'll sign though. The next manager (whenever that is) won't fancy a bunch of players that are at the club. He's probably not someone i'd have signed but now that we have, a 3 year contract is standard given his age. As I said earlier, very few 29/30 year olds will sign a 2 year deal.

As you say though, wages is the key. It was the wages we were paying Beye that was more the problem and stopped us being able to shift him rather than than being on a 3 year contract. Same with Zog, sensible wages and someone would probably have taken him after a year or 2, but no one else was daft enough to pay what we were paying him.

Why are we going 352 when we've only played 442 pre-season?

Adomah and Elmo will be our width and outlet balls wide.

Are Hull going to have enough players left to field a team against us on opening day?
