Ed001 recently posted a fantastic article on Sir Bob and I asked the question how ruthless could Sir Bob be when it came to letting players go i. e. loss of pace, age, injury history etc etc. Ed001 said he didn't like it but for the good of the team and for progression it was done no matter who the player was. So it got me thinking what would Sir Bob do about our brilliant captain Jordan Henderson? Not long left on his contract, not a great injury record but a fantastic player. A brilliant leader on and off the pitch. So what would he do lad's🤷‍♂️.

Hard to say, back in Sir Bob's day a squad of 15 would see you through the season but now with larger squads I would guess he would not be so ruthless, back then he probably had to be. Different times.

I think he would have got rid Barry. Jimmy Case would be a good example of how ruthless he could be. I know he wasn’t club captain but he still had a good few years left when he was sold to Brighton.

Well my feeling is Bob would let him go lad's sorry and all as he would be.

Let’s be perfectly honest now, Sir Bob wouldn’t have Jordan Henderson in his Squad let alone his captain.
Infact I reckon he’d get rid of the majority of the squad bar about 3 players. And then probably win his 4th European Cup.

Milner now that you mention it probably not.

He’d get rid when there was a replacement lined up Barry.
He was ruthless, yes, but not stupid.

Bob gives Milner a contract if he deems him contributing to the club's success. Milner provides leadership and exp plus fitter in his mid 30s than rooney at 28. Must be your new target

Dont you remember the times Hendo/ Gini was your target while gagging for Kovacic. Time to reflect perhaps.

Always a replacement ready to step in Juicer.

Milner hardly plays and doesn’t contribute much to the team on the pitch. The issue is it takes a place in the squad which either block a youngster or a new signing.
Now regarding physique, Matip plays like 5 games a season and he still gets contract.
It’s called poor squad management.
Bob wouldn’t have given a contract to either. No doubt.
