Why does it have to be a similar player ?
Why not a bloody good player who'd have made a big difference to the team ?
In my opinion we didnt need Henderson when we signed him, and he's done nothing to change that opinion since he joined. I'd obviously be delighted if he somehow developed into this great player some people think he's got the potential to be, i just cant see it from what he's shown so far. And i certainly hope we go out and aquire a good central midfielder this summer to partner Lucas, or worst case, replace Lucas if he cant come back from his ACL injury. Having had a such an ordinary central midfield, be it with Henderson playing there or not, has cost us dearly this season i think.
