My sources are telling me they’ve offered him a six-finger salary.

This might sound strange and not aligned to other supporters opinions, but I don't think Hendry will be that big a loss. Although his defensive side improved later into the season, I thought in possession, and certainly passing/crossing was some way off.

I think Hurst's historical full backs were all better than him (Danny Andrew, Richard Tait, Gregor Robertson, Ben Davies, Townsend, Aswad Thomas)

Your little Hurst signs better full-backs than Hendrie theory falls apart a bit when you realise Hurst signed him at Shrewsbury.

Hendrie of last season is no major loss, but it's probably important to remember that he was carrying an injury for the vast majority of the campaign.

Prior to that I thought he was a fine full back, but the last 12 months he was a good yard slower, considerably weaker, easily beaten and far less composed on the ball.

If we were losing the Luke Hendrie of 19/20 I would be disappointed, but I've absolute confidence in Hurst to bring in better.

Full back is always a position that under Hurst we always managed to upgrade.   Magnay to Tait for example.  Magnay was one who many worried we wouldn't be able to better.

Davies and Robertson weren't as good for us, but have had decent careers before signing. You're off your rocker if you think Aswad Thomas was better than Hendrie though. Andrew, Tait and Townsend definitely better, will give you that. Hurst signed Magnay too, didn't he? I agree with you that he does sign good full backs but Hendrie has been one of our most consistent players in the league for several seasons now. He's definitely not irreplaceable though, he's just a solid steady Eddie who puts in a lot of effort. Will be a decent signing for anyone in L2.

He clearly has a lot of ambition moving from bottom of the league to third from bottom of the league

I take your point. I was really disappointed with him last season was my main gist and that Hurst has always had a decent defence. Robertson I though was genuinely really good at the time he signed.

Wasn't a great season for him, but I thought he wasn't anywhere near as bad as some made out. Especially once we started defending well towards the back end of the season.
