The squad is so big it gives everyone a run out. I think it's a good idea. 

Not particularly great for fans though. You'd have wanted Brendan to be the one managing the team at both venues too or am I just being a bit nit picky?

Indeed, seems a tad strange! Guessing one team will be predominately first team and one development and they will divide up managerial responsibilities that way?

I've seen the bigger teams do it before but there's usually a considerable difference between both opponents. Rotherham and Stoke were in the same division last season!

We've done it loads of times before or has everyone forgotten? lol 

Yeah, but it's usually one youth/reserve squad at like Corby or somewhere while the other's playing a glamour friendly against a Euro side or something. It does seem strange we're splitting our squad between two clubs of relatively similar standard. They were both in the same division until a couple of weeks ago.

If you view it as part of a fitness regime then it enables 22+ players to achieve the same level of match fitness together.

Rumour has it Leicester and Leuven will play a friendly this season. No idea if this is true or where the game will be played.

I bizarrely ended up watching Stoke v Rotherham a month or so ago and I weirdly think on that showing we're best sending our stronger side to Rotherham lol

So likely no subs made in either game I imagine? Full 90 minutes for both XIs. Good idea. Be weird seeing away fans going to two different grounds, don't get on the wrong fox travel bus!

Seems both games will be first team squad This is from the website

 

The Foxes will deploy first team squads to both the AESSEAL New York Stadium and the Bet365 Stadium on Saturday 27 July, as Brendan Rodgers seeks to step up the preparation of all playing personnel just two weeks before the start of the new Premier League campaign.

I'm going to try a bit of duality on 27th July.

Einstein reckoned it's possible.

If ones at 3pm and the other 7.45pm I think you'll just about be able to make both games.

Would make sense and ables Brendan to watch both

Nothing to fear at Stoke..:unsure:

 

Ha. Had forgotten about this. Was stood right next to that door when they kicked it through in the 2008 (relegation) game. Was nothing but throwing stuff at each other really though.

Rotherham were the pits when I went to see them, genuinely couldn’t remember championship teams being as shit.
