Player Valuation: £70m
Agree on next season, this season is just frustrating, just look at all the teams on 15 and 16 points, they dont have the quality we have, we just need it fit.No way are we getting relegated this year. DCL and Richarlison will score too many for that to be a realistic scenario. Benitez likewise, for all his faults, should get us comfortably to 45+ points before he hopefully has the grace to walk away.
Next season however is starting to look a genuine concern. Absentee owner who is looking suspiciously like he's losing interest, next manager being a complete unknown quantity and our best players (all two of them) will doubtless be agitating to leave.
Several teams are going to press on again in the summer, even a top 10 will be a lot harder and the more we lurk in the bottom half of the table the closer the drop will get
