Another pretty poor season, Rudkin went crazy in the transfer market spending £248m on transfers and selling players for a total of £228m, his biggest mistakes were wasting £48m on Origi and £27m on Shaqiri, his decision to sell Chilwell and not sign another LB was a big mistake and I had to play a combination of Ndidi and Justin at LB which ensured another season of not being able to break into the top six.
