What does LC need to become a top-6 side?

Recommended Posts

Starts with ownership and LCFC has that. Stability in management is a must so you have a consistent long term approach - and then do a better job scouting so you don't overpay for guys who give you little to no return.  You want more Harry McGuire's and fewer Iheanacho's.  But then you also need to generate more revenue.  The thing is, they actually have a chance to do this - right now. They've put themselves into a position where this may actually be possible.  But the next steps are the hardest.  The revenue thing is a big one.  And if they lose Mahrez, they have to weather that.  Right now he makes such a huge difference for them.  Take away their ability to score vs anyone - and you're back to being West Ham/Watford/Southhampton.

Referring to our club as LC and using the singular rather than the plural makes it difficult for me to attempt to read any of the rest you wrote.

 

"What does LC need..."

 

Really?

 

Brad Bobley is in the house.

This a foul Americanism that people have just passively accepted. 

 

People say 'Leicester City is...' in one breath and 'we' in the next. It's infuriating.

Double the investment.

 

in particular:

  • 2 clappers per chair
  • 2 beers per match
  • 2 doughnuts
  • double length scarves
  • double height jester/santa hats

 

If we're gonna have 2 free beers per game we'll higher capacity loo's too. It's hard enough getting a half time pee as it is!!

Belief, confidence,...want, care and the players  individuals needs and targets..set alot higher than 6th..

Not accepting, the scraps that so called biggies leave behind, club not accepting or believing, that any present player

at anytime, can improve their silverware potential elswhere....

 

We've been there before....innit..!!

Sell the dead wood in the squad as soon as possible.

Ulloa should've gone before now for sure, but the club for some reason decided to extend his contract, whilst Musa's opportunities now appear very limited.

Promote the best indivuals from the academy to the first-team squad and let them, whilst very young, learn from the likes of Vardy, Silva, Morgan etc.

I believe we are not far off.  We will finish 7th or 8th this year. What we need to do is to have more options and a deeper squad... not just a starting 11.  

 

We will need to buy proven quality players. ... clearly we have wasted money on some signings.  This is our biggest barrier.

 

 Imo many players struggle with the speed snd physicality of the pl.  We should not buy any foreign players who lack a great first touch ... to buy time. .. and the strength to play in the pl.  We can onky bring in 2 or 3 a year. We have to irradicate mistakes.

 

Lastly we must make it plain to players and agents that we will not sell unless both parties are happy . We pay good wages and we expect our players to honour their contracts.  Simple

That only gets you 2 players if you're in the top 6 these days!

Using the singular when referring to a collective noun is a standard in the States and a language rule that make more sense. You're welcome.

 

The original post was a well laid-out and though-out; shame you wouldn't read it because you're being petty.

 

But you really showed the OP!

About £200 million, twice the wage bill and to move the ground to either London or Manchester.

I was thinking this.  In the last 10 seasons, a team from outside London/North West has finished in the top 6 six times, including our title win.  Villa managed 6th three times in a row, Newcastle grabbed a 5th in 11/12 and then Southampton finished 6th when we won it.

 

It seems common that young millionaires with lots of spare time prefer city life to living in the sticks and has to be a factor when it comes to big signings.

I know about North Americans mangling our language in this way with such incorrect usage and I have posted about it in here before.

 

It's wrong.

 

Just because a big continent 3,000 miles away thinks it's right, and you think it's right, doesn't make it right.

 

And taking the time to call me petty might, by some, be construed as pettier.

 

But enjoy your weekend, by all means.

That's not the reason why anyone thinks it's right, smart guy.

 

Thank you for the genuine line about my weekend.

Don't want to be a top six side, so much as wanting a premier league where any team can become a top six side by playing consistently good football without fear that one of a cartel of six clubs will simply come and buy away your best players. Would love to have a more open league, but you have to go back to the 70s or 80s really.

About 300 million in transfer fees and wages but if we spend it like we have been doing, about a hundred billion dollars.

I don't like the club but I think we have to learn from Spurs in terms of transfer policy. They have positive net spending every year and yet keeping top 6 status in recent years.

We cannot splash money like Manchester side or Chelsea with the owner we have.

My Leicester-born nephew, when he was about 8, complimented my Scottish wife on having learned English so well, and asked her at what age she started learning it at school.
