I agree that we have to sensible. We have probably offered him our best possible deal, but breaking the bank is not worth it. It would badly deplete the funds for other players and what if James got a serious injury? Mark and Micky are sensible people - and so is James (I'm sure), so I am assuming he's as good as gone. It will be difficult, but don't assume we can't get a decent replacement. We are a much more attractive club than we were even last summer. I just hope most of our signings are good and we don't get too many duds.
