A Balance View Part II

Hello fellow foxes

What a season!!?

A game of two halves, as it were.

I'm going to start with the negatives because that's the easy part and it clears the air so you can move on....

1) We've been pretty damn abysmal since December
2) We've not qualified for the Champions League

Ok, number 1 goes a bit more in depth than that sweeping statement but I stand by what I said before;
We do not have strength in depth. I think that's pretty clear.

The disruption from losing N'Didi in December was underestimated. A short Vardy injury played its part.

Leicester City and Brendan Rodgers found our new identity. Granted he shifted it around a few times but a master class of 4-1-4-1 and a winning streak of 8 on the bounce including a humiliation of Southampton we were the nearest challengers to Liverpool for a short while.

We would all agree, the title was a feathery dream, but our form was saying Champions League. Easily...

We got some good results over xmas and new year while rotating the squad as necessary, think West Ham and Newcastle. If i remember right, the West Ham win was played by practically a second string team.

This is where the luck ends. The injury disruptions, THEN Covid have exposed us, where maybe they didnt in 2016.

We were playing catch up with N'didi. It's no coincidence we tonked Villa on his return. Only to be broken up. And return to the restart losing more and more key players...

The momentum is with Man Utd. I don't think we should take our momentum into the Champions League. We are clearly not ready for that exposure.

Another positive I take from this, is the Europa League is a fantastic opportunity, and a chance for a trophy. If the likes of Man Utd and Chelsea dont seriously SERIUOSLY invest next season, they're going to end up in the same competition.

Remember the Watford penalty play-off disappointment? What happened next? Remember the great escape? What happened next? Remember missing out on the Champions League in 2020....

....What happens next?..

Some good responses folks. Keep up the positivity.

Are we seriously linked with anyone at the minute?

I’d probably want us linked with players like:
Tarkowski
Ings
Dunk
McGinn
Cantwell
I think Norwood could do a job also
And although he’s had a poor season (head turned) - Fraser.
Possibly Hojbjerg
Perhaps Sarr as a punt

We aren’t really ready to go challenge for really top class PL players , but we are in a position to challenge for good players who are ready to go at PL level.

I agree with those, Deeney to me fits in as a good back up for Vardy and a plan b, the kind of player Slow could have been if he was any good

Not heard anything about Deeney’s attitude so can’t comment on that.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Yes, he has displayed a bad attitude in the past. I don’t mind him so much now but I had no time for him at one point.

Some Good Suggestions on RL Leicester tonight, mainly from the Relegated Clubs who all have some decent Players.

Ings ( Doubtful we could get him ?

James ward Prowse

David Brooks

Callum Wilson

Ake

Max Aarons ( Norwich )

Sarr ( Watford )

Werte all mentioned including Deeney who they felt it was too late in his career, tbh that's why I think he could be a good choice.

I heard James Ward Prowse only signed a new deal at Southampton yesterday. Can’t see them letting Ings go either but it would be interesting to see Ings and Vardy as a front two. Or Vardy and Callum Wilson.

Ings would be awesome. Hes only 28

I think David Brooks would interest me most out of those.

(I mean, absolutely zero chance of getting Ings. Whoever suggested that is nuts.)

Why couldnt we get Ings?

Cost would be a Major issue, how much would you value Ings at if we're after £50 million plus for Chilwell

I believe Rodgers has said that we won't spend over £60 million for any one player.

Surely he's also on everyone's radar as well, would he choose Leicester?

Todd Cantwell from Norwich could be decent. Still only 22 as well.
