Re: Jeff Hendrick's contract

The obvious question is: could we afford an adequate replacement given that we probably wouldn't get very much for him in his last contracted season?
I'd say keep if possible. The flak he gets might just persuade him to move on.

Re: Stronger than last season

as long as we don't sell anyone we can't replace then of course we are stronger.
Rodriguez and Pieters are improvements on what we had.
Taylor and McNeil were steadily improving last season, and we have Nick Pope back and fit.
Looks good to me. :)

I think it's because with a stronger midfield we wouldn't give away possession so often and easily, it would take pressure off our defence which is often over-worked.
