Sahin is a decent player. I'm indifferent whether he stays or leaves at this point. I'd rather not spend the ~13m on him if it was up to me.
I just don't see where Sahin fits into our midfield. He's lazy in defense and is slow on the ball. There's no denying his talent, but I've been severely underwhelmed when watching him. I don't see the point of spending good money on a Europa/cup player..
I think Lucas, Allen, Gerrard is our best midfield. I think it still has room to improve even more when Lucas finds his full passing range again.
Agree for a third time is a charm
Shelvey might be a good contributor in a couple seasons, but I think he's been a waste of space most of the season so far. I don't see what he offers us right now.
I think we need to continue giving him his start so he will progress. He needs to mature but I don't believe he has been a wastse of space as you say. I believe he can be a solid contributor now and years to come but believe you need to carefully select what matches he plays and don't put him in to many situations to fail.
I'm fond of Henderson particularly because of his work rate. He's a great substitute because he will give everything he has for the club. His touch isn't the greatest and he seems to shite the bed when in front of goal though.
I think he and Shelvey are very much the same but two sides of the same coin. Both of there work rates are really good. Both like to get on the ball and push foward. The difference I see between the two are as follows:
Shelvey is the shooter type, whereas Hendo is more of the passer/distrubutor. Where Shelvey is better Hendo lacks & vice versa.
