Leicester has a Premier League and FA Cup trophy in the cabinet and looking at the squads and the structure of those set-up’s you will find the criterias important to not neglect.
Leicester also fought in the top four for most of the last two seasons but overlooking key elements such as age and other human qualities can see your team fall a bit even with the best players still in the group.
After last season Wes Morgan, Christian Fuchs and Matty James all left the party. None of them really in there with a lot of game time on the pitch but off it they had grand amount of quality and they had been part of the group for a very long time, it will do something with the situation as they all left at the same time.
We cannot see any other players stepping in and just letting us all forget the infleunce of those mentioned above. Who did step in to take the role of Wes, no one. He was of course an important man for so many years at the club and a player to trust as Brendan Rodgers new his talisman.
The players coming in was Ryan Bertrand, Jannik Vestergaard, Ademola Lookman, Patson Daka and Bouba Soumare, all very different from Fuchs and Morgan. The dressing room might have changed a lot as the new players were far from copies of Fuchs and Morgan, or James.
Expectation for a place in the first team set up might have been at a very high level and as we have seen none of the five have managed to cement a place in the line-up and of course none of these players are in any way seen as replacements for Morgan and Fuchs as they had a totally different presence and influence.
TCF believe that bringing in as many as five new players and really not having a massive goal to give any of them a first team position is a high risk of also bringing the squad to another status that will affect the performances on and off the pitch.
The squad in form and shape at the moment is not ideal and you have to adress that when signing new players and as we have seen before the club do not need more young hopefulls and a more mature approach with new additions being in the age group between 26 and 30 would suit this squad better.
There are a number of players growing to become captain material but still the three to be trusted are into their mid 30’s. Evans, Schmeichel and Vardy are the trio of captains with Wilfred Ndidi being the fourth and younger alternative. Ricardo Pereira and Timothy Castagne are also players that could grow to become captains, as well as Youri Tielemans, but he is reported to be on his way out.
