The only good news from that I take from this, is that despite their positive comments about VAR, it’s obvious that they’re starting to realise how badly it has been received by fans.

I suppose that depends to what extent. We’ve Rodriguez and the lesser spotted Vydra in reserve, both of whom would require us to adapt.

Re: ARTICLE: Wood to stick around for a further two years

Why would that be a concern?

Having squad and/or adaptability concerns and being a Premier League club for four seasons are not mutually exclusive.

In fact I’d argue that a greater level of adaptability would aid us in extending that stay beyond four, five or six years.
