Will Leicester City be able to replace Mahrez, or will a new flirt with relegation be the real deal at King Power

DATE: 10.07.2018 - THE CUNNING FOX - BLOG

 

No one expected Riyad Mahrez to stay after this transfer window and the money received is a good rise from what was predicted last summer, a fee of 60 million is not bad, but again worries are in the sky


Leicester made history two seasons ago, winning the Premier League, but the three other campaigns in the top flight, since coming back up, has been a flirt with relegation, a great number of management changes and great escapes.

Will Claude Puel, without Riyad Mahrez, really be able to build anything, anything at all. Of course as fans you have to stay positive and believe that the club can move forward despite the loss of one of the best players in the Premier League.

The money spent by Puel this summer is not showing any sign of a player replacing Riyad. Jonny Evans, Ricardo Pereira and James Maddison are not players who can be seen as a Mahrez replacement.

The past at Leicester City, regarding big money moves are more talk of great disasters than fantastic signings, and money cannot be said to have been well spent all the time.

The recent recruitment at Leicester City is close to a disaster if you look at the money spent and how players have been used and developed over the last two seasons.

Wilfred Ndidi and Harry Maguire can be rated as great, Vicente Iborra is also one to see as a success. The rest of the pack is not either given a real chance or getting to a level being able to replace those who did so well two seasons ago.

When you start to spend big money on players you know will struggle to get in the starting line-up, don't do it, and again use money on the players you believe you need to replace those who are going out, it's only quality that counts, not quantity.

Puel has at the moment close to
40 players you would regard as potential first team material, and when more than 50 % of your squad is a group of frustrated players not being able to be counted, since only 11 will be picked to each game than you are in great trouble.

Puel must start his cleaning up as soon as possible get his squad down to the numbers needed, and sell of players or loan them out, just to get all your thoughts sorted and not having to deal with players you never will use in your first team.

Tcf is worried about the situation, believe that Puel has a grand job in front of him and hopefully he will not start a full rotation of around 40 players then the relegation red lights will blink all over King Power.
