Just been reading about Alex Pritchard being released. I always thought he looked a decent player and would surely be a decent option on the bench for us given our lack of attacking talent?

Will get shot down as he hasn’t had the best of times at Huddersfield but who has recently.

We have enough bench warmers already so no need to sign another one.

He is not a centre half so no room for him

Ex bang average Spurs youngster so he'll be signed up.

We're probably end up with Billy Sharp, we'll he's been everywhere else and scores the odd goal which is a bonus on this season.

We should be putting a £25 million price tag on him, same as what Everton paid for Godfrey. He's just as good in my opinion.

The price tag should be £0 because he’s not for sale. Disgrace if he leaves.

Some honourable mentions are Rob Dickie, Krystian Bielik (who has Tony Khan written all over), Frank Onyeka, Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, Jakub Kaminski, Siriki Dembele and Vedat Muriqi.

May not be a popular view, but anything north of £6m I would take it.
Doubt that Sheff U would bid  that much though.

I believe TC is a Yorkie though, perhaps a conversation has already been had.

He's not a Yorkie, he grew up in Nottingham and was rejected by Leeds as a youngster.
I have a feeling the club would accept a decent bid because of his injury problems. If he leaves, that's the team's identity dead and buried.

So if Cairney was to leave who becomes our playmaker next season . In fact our midfild could need a complete rebuild.
No K Mac, Stefjo at QPR, Anguissa off, Lemina away.

Essential we hang on to Reed and then maybe make an attemt to Keep Lemina.

Seri could play the role, I'd keep Johansen as well.

I’ve yet to see Seri show anything to suggest he’s a playmaker and  Stef Jo isn’t either. We would need a new signing and might well struggle to do better than a fully fit TC. Of course, if TC can’t get fit then imo we’d have no option but to look to sign someone. The absence of a TC type really blunted us this season

If we sell Cairney then we will need two playmakers (one as back up). I would say that such players are extremely hard to come by. So no we should not sell Cairney!

Aside from the first 3-4 games when he was playing in the sunshine - Seri has shown absolutely nothing in a Fulham (or any other) shirt to suggest he will be in any way shape or form ready,willing or able to be a first teamer for us next season.

Agreed. Cairney may be injury prone, but there really aren't many players like him. StefJo type of players are even more rare. I can't think of a current modern day player who plays like StefJo.

Cairney's possession in the middle of the pitch is what keeps the balance of attack going, and allows freedom to build in those crucial attacking thirds. It's not a coincidence that we lost the sharpness there when he left. RLC was supposed to be the next reliable one here, but his first touch was not consistent, and his power dribbles forward rarely led to direct chances.

I think we could be in a bad spot if we sell Cairney and StefJo. Hopefully the scouts are keeping an eye on some actually proven playmakers that can either sit in the regista spot or be a classic number 10.

I think Seri made it clear two seasons ago that he was not prepared to drop down to Championship level so without a fit Cairney we are without a playmaker and finding a replacement is not going to be easy.

Bring back Roberts, I always felt that he would develop into that position or even Cauley Woodrow, Some lateral thinking is required.

Thats the big problem we had this year, no decent palymaker able to dominate a game
