You don't think we need another striker?

He obviously rates Iheansnacho?

Ah, so we're just going to ignore all the other factors then, like how two of our last three games were against tired, injury ravaged B Teams (Chelsea and Arsenal) and that our defence was similarly resolute against Chelsea, Liverpool, and Man City under Puel? Just because we performend well in some games with Maguire in them, doesn't mean he's the only factor at all. 

I have never said he is the only factor. It’s the whole defensive unit. My point was about the recent record under Rodgers and the positive direction the team is going in now.

 

If you seriously think Soyuncu or Benkovic will just walk in and do the same job as a player that would probably get into any team in the league, then I think you are wrong.

Benkovic has just been called up by the last World Cup finalists. This suggests he may get into some EPL Teams?  or have the Croatian FA have got it terribly wrong?

He looks a good prospect and I hope he goes on to be a success with us. He needs to stay injury free though. 

 

There are far more questions against him though than a proven centre back who is one of the best in the league.

Hes going to come good and be our main striker.

 

I have a good feeling about iheanacho.

 

I'm hoping it's much like the vardy situation when he first got to Leicester

I once invented a time machine, a bit worried about getting lost in time and space I set it to take me 2 minutes into the future. Unfortunately it took me 2 minutes to get there, when I opened the door with a big ‘tadaa’ people laughed and mocked me. But I knew it had worked.

It’s not every season you find a Maddison or Pereira. More often than not, those £20m players don’t have the same impact on the first team. The difference also last season was that we was in desperate need of a right back and creative midfielder/ number 10. I don’t think the need is as urgent this season and I think we only possibly need one player for the first team, which is a Tielemans or similar player. 

 

 

No it’s not urgent if you are happy making up the numbers. If we bring in one player you can kiss goodbye to any top six challenge. The wingers simply do not score or create enough and should Vardy get injured or time catches up we are a bottom half team.

If money is that tight, there are other players in the squad I would sell first, such as Gray who would command decent money. 

I see one problem with this. First off you need someone to be interested in Gray or any players your happy to sell. 

 

Still amazes me how people on here talk about moving players on. Its not football manager or fifa. Also the wages we pay makes it even harder to move players on.

Hence why I mentioned Gray and not some of the other players. I’m pretty sure he would be a player that would interest a few clubs and I don’t think he’s on a crazy salary.

 

So no need to be amazed about that comment.

Sides trying to get into the top six don’t sell their best players.

They received a great fee and have the ability to attract top players in return like Van Dijk and Alisson. We certainly can’t.

I’m pretty sure they wasted most of that money. They would have been a better team with Bale in it for a few years after.

Arsenal sold Sanchez. 

There’s three examples of clubs that currently sit in the top 6 who sold their best player yet still managed a top 6 finish. 

I don’t agree that trading your better players for big money necessarily means you are shooting yourself in the foot. Everybody keeps quoting Southampton but there are other examples.

We sold one of the most gifted players that ever played for us last summer, yet acquired Pereira and Maddison and ended up with more points that when we had Riyad. 

In turn Norwich sold their best player, Maddison and their fans were anticipating a car crash season as a result and they ended up winning the league. 

Of course, if you do trade your very best players for big money, the emphasis is then on your recruitment, but it doesn’t naturally follow that it can’t lead to success.

Vardy was never as bad as nacho.

 

What is this good feeling based on?

Really because the Belgian press fella says Tielemans is happy to sign if we can afford the fee. Tielemans is more important IMO than Maguire, in terms of pushing on from last season.

So never try and replace any player ever then because they might not be good enough and we might waste out money.
