For me some players in this squad need to be told in no uncertain terms "your time has come to an end as the club is no longer benefitting." That needs a strong character, but I really do feel we need to start with a blank piece of paper so to speak and start afresh, with some changes in Jan especially.
In that list for me:
All for different reasons. Mahrez needs to move as he is stale, going backwards and needs to grow beyond us now. Morgan, Fuchs and Huth are past it. James isn't fit enough. The others aren't good enough.
Moving forward we need to build a team around Kasper,Maguire, Chilwell, Ndidi, Gray and Iheanacho as they have the talent to take us forward in my opinion. I know Nacho was poor the other night, but I think he will come good.
I would make Kasper our captain with immediate effect.
Vardy for me has another year left in him, however we need to become less dependant as the current tactics are based around him. Pick for now but phase out for Nacho gradually.Maybe let him go next summer as one of our all time greats.
Initially I would go along the lines of:
GK: Kasper (Captain)
DMC: Iborra (just sit and mop up)
Off the pitch someone needs to be accountable for the awful transfer dealings. Goodbye Rudkin and head of recruitment and I would let the new manager decide if we replace or restructure so the two sides can merge again as in the current system, left doesn't appear to be talking to right.
