I'm surprised we offered any of the out of contract players a new deal. Looked like a good chance to make some space in the squad to bring 3 or 4 in who could get into the first team. I think as a manager you have to back yourself to do that while by retaining squad players all you are doing is cutting your options for first team signings. Strange decision really.
Look at the goalie situation, neither of them is a first choice keeper in my opinion and we have the chance to get rid of 1 and bring someone else in but turn it down in favour of extending a contract. What means a wage and a signing on fee are gone on someone who clearly isn't up to the job.
