Massive fan of KL but do know what you mean.
However, he was, and still is the most intuitive, intelligent midfielder we have unfortunately.
No one else makes the kinds of forward runs he sees and makes (with and without the ball,) or those short penetrating passes that he can see and make to unlock a well organised defence.
Without a player like him in the side we struggle so much to link defence and attack. Hutchinson and Bannan, both very good players in their own right, have us playing impossibly deep at times when playing together.
Luongo looks decent but is nowhere near as good as Lee at what he does best.
Really difficult conundrum.
