I was reading the latest miserable update from Pearce in the transfer rumours thread and it seems like we're in a pretty difficult predicament. We seem to prioritise keeping "the group" together or something else I can't quite grasp over selling players so that we can reinvest, which has resulted in a couple of high profile players leaving on frees and others rotting away on the fringes whilst their value decreases. That'd be okay if we had money to spend but we clearly don't so what's our pretty small squad going to look like in a couple years time? Players aged 29+ Milner - 37 - likely departed Adrian - 36 - likely departed Henderson - 33 Thiago - 32 VVD - 32 Matip - 31 Firmino - 31 Shaqiri - 31 - potentially departed Mane - 31 Salah - 31 Alisson - 30 Ox - 29 Fabinho - 29 Robertson - 29 Players that (we hope) will form the nucleus of the next cycle Tskimikas - 27 - in the list out of hope more than anything Gomez - 26 Jota - 26 TAA - 24 Konate - 24 Curtis Jones - 22 Elliot - 20 I've left out Minamino, Keita, Origi and Davies who will be between 27-28 because they either won't be here or reckon they won't contribute much anyways. So what's going to be the end result? It's clear that we've got far too many players hitting / the wrong side of 30. Are we going to refresh the team in preparation for the next cycle or is the plan to simply the let the team die out completely and start from scratch with another manager?
