As Snowflake has said, there’s not 1 player we currently have that is indispensable. We have some good players but not a Gylfi or a Long at the mo.
And of course we dispensed with both of those two after less than a year of good performances.
Don’t think we should underestimate how reliant we have been on Swift this year. If we lose him then we have to rebalance the squad. It can be done but it is a challenge.
True, we'll have to rebalance the squad.
But that can only be a good thing as has been probably the most unbalanced bizarre squad I've known us have for a long time. We still don't have a clear shape/ plan/ system and maybe part of the problem is feeling compelled to play certain players because they're good.
Perhaps it will be a blessing in disguise to lose Swift.
