    Demari Gray. Keep or sell?

    We have four wingers. We'll lose our best one soon. Keep.

    Hamza Choudhury

    Replaces? Oh injury. Bugger.

    It's not so much age or height but experience. I agree that we shouldn't let older players who are unlikely to break through get in the way of younger players. But the younger players also need players with a bit more experience around them. There's a balance.

    Eduardo Macia to West Ham?

    Aye. Our best two, Ndidi and Maguire, were tracked before Macia came on board. And Pereira and Diabate are almost certainly because of Puel. You can only really say Ian, Iborra and Silva are his signings. They're good signings of course.

    Ricardo Pereira Signs For Leicester

    Obviously not but it's worth seeing how the whole squad can help replace Riyad's contribution.

    Riyad’s Destiny Bingo

    Favourite thread title of the year so far

    In fairness, you need a few older, experienced players to give the team stability and momentum and help the younger ones. If the team is full of 18 year olds getting thumped every match I doubt anyone's going to develop that much.

    Mahrez to Man City shock

    I'm torn. I don't want to player here who's constantly looking to leave. But I do want a player here with 13 goals and 10 assists. But Puel does seem to have managerial pull so maybe we can replace him with someone half as good.

    Puel

    I remember reading a while ago that he was feeling the physical strain this last season. He may still want to play another full season however. I'd be surprised if Puel picks him though: Pereira, Maguire and Chilwell are all happy on the ball. Wes sticks out like a sour thumb in that group. If Puel can wrestle the captaincy away from him I'd be dumbfounded if he's still in the starting lineup providing Drag stays or we buy another centre half.

    Ricardo Pereira Signs For Leicester

    I'm seeing how he can help fill Riyad's contributions. They're obviously very different players.

    Captaincy

    The more I think about it the more Vardy makes sense. Puel could funnel his ideas though Vardy who could give them to the team, a young team that looks up to Vardy, many of them wanting to achieve something similar. It's hard to see a dressing room rebellion against Puel with Vardy speaking up for him. And Vardy will certainly not be "distant". Vardy may want to win more trophies and he may want a final good season a big club but a captaincy is a big pull. He obviously doesn't have the experience and he may not make a great captain on games he's isolated up front: but then make Silva deputy captain.

    The Home Grown Players Thread

    Whoscored claims he joined in 2015 but that's perhaps just the first season he played in. I guess he was on their books earlier?

    Barnes Choudhury Chilwell Hughes Dewsbury-Hall (perhaps or at least another u23) We've got five from our youth team alone. That young Danish keeper will soon add himself as our sixth. Gray Maguire Albrighton Vardy Hamer Iheanacho (birthday in October and joined Man City in January 2014 apparently) Schmeichel We're on twelve including the above. Morgan Simpson James King And then sixteen with some players who may or may not stay around for too long.

    Ricardo Pereira Signs For Leicester

    He's asked to leave so many times now. It'll be ridiculous if he stays. I'm not sure how good it is for the team spirit: to have someone constantly on the lookout for pastures new. Although thirteen goals and ten assists are hard to come by.

    Ricardo Pereira Signs For Leicester

    https://www.whoscored.com/Players/120763/Show/Ricardo-Pereira 2 goals and 6 assists last season. Assume he'll get 1 goal and 4 assists. Ryiad was on 13 goals and 10 assists. 12 goals and 6 assists to make up somehow.
