Pre-season update, not much to judge from, hopefully there will be a

Leicester City are in the middle of
their pre-season campaign, so far after three games, one win, one
draw and one defeat. Not much to see yet, but we will hopefully find
out what the plan of Puel will be
Mahrez is gone, and Claude Puel said in an interview that he will
not look to replace the player, but instead build his team stronger,
probably in a new formation or with another type of play.
The new faces Maddison, Evans, Ward and Pereira are all involved,
but it's early days and difficult to see what will be happening, if
they are close to an important role in the team or if they are just
part of the squad.
Mendy, King, Slimani, Musa, Ulloa and Kapustka are also back and all
of them have been in action. What the future are, not easy to know,
but Claude Puel has a grand group of players and to keep all of them
will probably not be part of the plan.
Jamie Vardy and Harry Maguire are not yet back
from holliday after a great World Cup with England. Both will be
important for the team next season, and they will both push other
players out, opening against Manchester United.
Harry Maguire has been heavilly linked with Manchester United, but
few or no one believe that the player who has four years left of his
current contract will be given a chance to leave.
Kasper Schmeichel is back, but so far new arrival Danny Ward and
Eldin Jakupovic are the two goalkeepers playing. A surprise is to
see Darnell Johnson playing from start and given so much time on the
pitch, he is surely not first choice on the right back position.
We just have to wait and see how Puel will field his side against
Valencia and Lille. The two games will be important, and hopefully
used in a way that will give us all a sort of understanding of what
will be the plan this season.
Albrighton and Simpson are also back in action after being ruled out
of the first pre-season games with smaller injuries. A lot of
questions to be asked and hopefully some answers to be told, but so
far it's not easy to see what the team will look like when the
As always interesting days in front, and hopefully the new players
will be used the way they are hopefully believing they will. If the
money is well spend, we will all have to wait and see.
We have a new fresh and updated hot, cool and
cold list to view, and don't miss out on all the great
interviews, documentaries and other updates from the tv channels "city-extra", "tcfone"
