With three mainstays of last season’s starting eleven heading out the exit door, there is concern that they won’t be adequately replaced.

John Terry, Robert Snodgrass and Sam Johnstone will either not be returning, or are very unlikely to be at the club next season. Their influence both on and off the field will be sorely missed.

Fans on Twitter have had a lengthy debate over who should replace these senior players:

Verdict:

At the moment, there are a fair few questions to answer even before we even consider who we will be signing. Will Steve Bruce still be in charge? Who can we afford to keep and who will have to be sold?

Certainly, the positions vacated by the likes of Terry will need to be filled, but these could very well be taken up by loan players or youngsters. Some inspired bargain signings and excellent recruitment is needed to navigate through this difficult summer and we’ll just have to wait and see if the right decisions are made.
