I see a little more in Jones and McAsey, but that's not really in the discussion. Port are a better football dept than us. They aren't petrified of SA players leaving, so shrugged their shoulders and moved on when Chad didn't respond as hoped to his exit interview and polec expected to cash in for 5 based on a contract year uplift They got the assets required to get ahead of us and once they did that, I'm happy enough not trading with Saints. But would have moved Lynch on regardless.Why not set the market with regard to the deal that we know that Port could cut? We could have had the currency with relatively low pain moves like: not re-signing Lynch.
There is a very very good chance that Rozee will have a career as good or better than Jones, McHenry, and McAsey combined. One elite player is worth far more than three alrights.
We'd have probably grabbed King anyway and he'd be heading home end of this year.
