I don't think he's the best footballer at the club but I don't think he's too far away. Top 5 are clear imo with not a lot of separation...I'd struggle to add a 6th, Bamford is useful but limited, I like Douglas a lot, think he's going to come back hard. Alio just didn't play where he should for me enough, Ayling still defensively suspect and lack calmness when he gets to the oppo's box...

Not seen enough of Shack or Clarke yet though both could be top 5 next season.

So it looks like a combination of Hernandez, Jansson, Phillips, Klich & Roofe are our top players

I would include Ayling in there as his big presence give us drive & energy going forward & we look a better side when Luke plays

So general consensus is that

Kiko
BPF
Douglas
Cooper
Forshaw
Roberts
Alioski

are all surplus to the team and can be replaced with immediate effect.... :)

Needs more then talent to win things.

If I was looking at the 5 I would keep rather than specifically talent it would be Kiko, Klich, Alioski, Hernandez and then one of Roofe or Bamford (dependant on who fits Bielsa's system better). These 5 for me fit into Bielsa's system more than the others.

A Kikoesque keeper is needed to play the sweeper role.
Klich gives us an element of control and he now has a season of championship football under his belt so I expect improvement next year - also an ever present.
Alioski, you need his legs for the system and you know he will give everything. As a full back he was scoring goals as a winger he should be getting double figures without breaking sweat, okay his crossing is a bit erratic but the energy and goals far outweigh this (or defensive frailties if playing as a wingback). Like Klich was ever present but for the last few matches.
Hernandez - just has that extra quality about him and his goals and assists cannot easily be replaced.
Roofe or Bamford - both should do better than last season if they stay fit but I still expect Bielsa to be looking for a new striker as such whichever one of these Bielsa prefers to keep is vital as we need someone capable of getting 25+ goals and they both are.
