Not saying the guy won't do a job for us. Happy enough that we've signed a striker with top league experience. We needed a third striker we can rely on to come off the bench. I'd rate him better than Mendy and Moussa but probably unlikely to be ahead of Miller and Kallman, unless he comes into better form than he's shown over the last few seasons.
My concern is that we are continuing our policy of giving players lengthy contracts. Given the number of players we sign that the manager ends up wanting binned before the contract ends, surely a change of approach to contracts should be considered? When we are charging fans up to £30 to get into Dens plus losing £300k+ every season, it pisses me off slightly that so much money gets wasted on payoffs.
The norm IMO should be to give max 1 year contracts. If it's a young player we've identified as someone with potential to be sold for millions, hand out the longer contract. Craig Curran definitely doesn't fall into the bracket of potential sellable asset.
