I'm sure there are quite a few clubs in the VC and FL2 that would give our best players a Two year contract and that will be the difference  im afraid ............... Beware the wounded animal Lincoln City  I fear they are going  excrement or bust for the title

Would like to see a couple of players get two year deals but I don't think you can moan too much at 34-year-old Craig Disley and injury prone JP Pittman getting one year deals.

I think Lincoln are possibly a bit deluded supported by the fact they have signed Liam Hearn.................I would not gamble with my payroll budget like that!

I think Pearson and Magnay are worth more than a straight one year, definitely.

In fairness to PH, im sure its not him who has the say on the length on contracts offered. In fact, I know that for a fact.

PH is only in the position to offer 1 year deals due to our financial position.

But as a club, we should be offering Mags, Pearson, Toto, LJL 2 year deals IMO.

I agree laddy these important players could well fetch us a tidy fee one year deals are ok to the unknown but once proven should be tied a bit further is the club missing a trick here.

Yeah it makes sense when you've got players in their mid twenties who've clearly established themselves as quality players at this level to offer them more than a one year contract. Toto, Pearson, Magnay and potentially LJL, Arnold and Mackreth would fall into this bracket. It worked out well when we got Ryan Bennett to sign a multi year deal before Peterborough plonked a load of money on Fenty's doorstep. I just wonder whether giving Liam Hearn a 3 year deal which he spent the last two years of which injured has scared the club away from offering longer contracts to deserving players this time round?

Don't think the likes of Pearson, Magnay etc wiould demand a fee. Too many Bosmans available every season so no need for clubs at lower levels to pay transfer fees. However the point is they would have been tied to us for longer IF they had signed them.

IF I were in their position I wouldn't have signed a new deal in January, I would have waited and seen what was on offer now. For Magnays and Pearsons they hold the aces, for most others, the clubs rule the roost as the vast majority are easily replaced
