    part of the reason to get a new cb NOW is to allow Benkovic to go on loan and get some games, to help him back to full fitness and aid his long term development, calm down and stop panicking, its just long term planning nothing more

    Depends what’s happening with Wes, get one now and they have an extra 6 months to settle in whilst not having the pressure of games

    yes we are after a long term replacement for Wes and Evans, its called pre planning
  4. its not mandatory we just gave him extra time off before as it made sense as it was the summer, previous winter AFCONs the players have returned straight away and played
  5. there isn't one in football, most international players are lucky if they get more than a week

    “Time will tell” if Bartosz Kapustka has a future at Leicester City but the Polish winger has impressed manager Brendan Rodgers since returning from injury. After nine months out with a cruciate ligament tear suffered on loan at City’s sister club OH Leuven, Kapustka made his return to action last week, playing 90 minutes, and setting up a goal, in the Under-23s’ 5-1 win over Wolves. The 23-year-old has been training with Rodgers’ first team and the manager has liked what he’s seen. “He’s been very good in training,” Rodgers said. “He’s been excellent, to be fair. “He’s a young player who broke on the scene for Poland at the Euros in 2016. He did very well. Nobody knew much about him. He came to Leicester, went out on loan, and has been unfortunate with the injury. “But certainly from what I’ve seen in training, he’s been impressive. He’s worked hard to get back. He’s technically gifted, he’s sharp, he looks like he wants to score a goal. “He did well in the reserve game he played.” Three-and-a-half years into his five-year contract at the King Power Stadium, Kapustka has only made three senior appearances for the club. He has not been able to follow through on the hype that surrounded his performances for his country as a teenager. A tweet from City icon Gary Lineker – “Sense we'll see a lot of Kapustka in the coming years. Deliciously talented 19 year old” – has proven to be a poisoned chalice. The Pole has seemingly failed to adjust to English football, and did not set the world alight on loan at Freiburg in Germany, nor with Leuven in the Belgian second tier, although he played an influential role in Poland Under-21s’ qualification for the Euros last summer, a tournament he missed because of his injury. Asked if being labelled as the next big thing had affected Kapustka, Rodgers said: “I don’t know anyone who under pressure gets their best performance. You hear all this stuff after players being better when they play under pressure. There’s not many that do, it’s just how people handle it. “For him, bless him, he’s a young player who’s moved countries, moved to a different style of football. “It’s just time, whether he ends up staying here or not, that’s for the future, but I think it’s nice to see him back training, fit, having been out for so long. “Time will tell with him whether he has a future here or not, but he’s certainly a talent there’s no doubt about that.” Kapustka could move out on loan in the second half of the season, with City looking to get game-time for young players, out-of-favour stars, and those returning from injury. So far, George Thomas has joined ADO Den Haag on loan, with Andy King on his way to Huddersfield.

    be nice if he could solve the winger problem from within, he'd need to be added to the PL squad though before he can play but that can be done up to 24 hours before the match
  8. refuse to release the players and force them to go every 4 years, send the players on a 6 week holiday as they'll be banned from playing

    Luke Shaw ????

    if we could get him fit and keep him fit he's got some talent but he is getting towards the Matty James level of games missed injured
  10. Having another operation next week I believe
  11. Ricardo didn't replace Simpson, Amartey did, Ricardo was being played on the wing most of the time until Amartey broke his ankle, the consensus seemed to be Ricardo was a weak link defensively up to that point
  12. there were several passes he made yesterday I thought were the right ball only to look up and not see Barnes remotely close to where he should have been, the one that summed it up for me was after Kasper saved a ball out to the corner Chilwell played it right to where you would expect the winger to be but he'd sprinted to the half way line for some reason. Chilwell gets the blame for that but for me that's on Barnes. Chilwell had a poor game yesterday but no worse than many others and unlike Maddison, didn't appear to be shrinking or sulking like the latter once moved wide again. Jeeriing a player has never worked so whats the point doing it? It seems to me some people have never liked Chilwell simply because he replaced Fuchs and are waiting for the slightest excuse to hammer him, no one ever comments on the times we are defending and Ricardo is no where to be seen as he hasn't got back yet, if that was Chilwell he'd be getting slaughtered for it.
  13. one injury that was never allowed to fully heel when at Celtic doesn't make him a croc, plenty of players get minor knocks and injuries when returning from lengthy injuries as the body gets used to it again
  14. what does not being good on his right foot have to do with getting to the by line and drilling a cross? he doesn't do it because he doesn't have a wingers instinct, Ricardo does, Albrighton and Gray do but neither Barnes nor Chilwell do? His crossing is fine for England as they have good movement and get more than the striker into the box
