He didn't struggle on Stephenson in the air. He couldn't go with the lightening pace (especially with under some sort of injury cloud).

I doubt Stephenson has troubled anyone in the air. His go is on the lead and working back to goal.
Point, but he still struggles with the medium types at both levels, as compared with the smaller types.

feel like mason is critical to our coming good next year..

if he gets over his injury concern (whatever it was) and gets back to previous levels he can counter the loss of saad with his bullet kicking and zip, if he remains the version of this year - its trouble

Our defenders get zero help from the midfielders. Its not surprising he had some shockers and looked in bad positions at times. But fwr out when ya mids turn it over on halfback 4-5 times in a row resulting in repeat 50 entries its not surprising defenders eventually get found out of position.

I'm willing to write off 2020 if Mason is. I'll happily accept the injury excuse for this one, because he looked like a completely different player 2019 compared to this year.

But all sorts of fingers crossed for this guy.
We're now establishing a currently very small young group to hopefully build together - Ridley, Draper, McGrath, Langford.
Redman should also be in there.
