Agreed, not a huge loss. We have the quality in the midfield to plug that gap pretty easily.No Rakitic....

This might not be a big loss tbh, Ivan hasn't shown us much in the NT other than a handful of games...
Some decent players coming up through the youth system as well:on a separate note though... has anyone thought about our keeper hierarchy? Suba is great, one of our leaders, had a great season in Ligue 1 and Europe.
but Kalinic might of had even a better season? Voted keeper of the year in Belgium, after just half a season (!!) single handily kept us in the Mexico game and IMO, maybe a little more athletic than Danjiel...
not sure I would say with 100% confidence that Lovre should be our #1, but it's a great situation to be in with having two high performing GK's
:thumbsup:Some decent players coming up through the youth system as well:
Livakovic u21 GK (Dinamo) - already has an A team cap and been on the bench a bunch as 3rd gk
Semper u19 GK (Lokamotiva) - played great in the u17 WC in 2015
both had 20+ caps in HNL1 this season
