Fair point on the loans actually. I'm obviously looking at it from the half glass full angle that if we recruit well we can go into next season significantly stronger as a collective even after losing Emi Buendia. Of course replacing him directly with a player as good is probably unlikely as players as good as Emi Buendia demand £80k p/w apparently but I trust we'll get a good replacement, presumably with lots of potential. Max Aarons will be easier to replace. I'd imagine we'll opt for somebody stronger defensively which will help us in the tougher league.
