'Guiding lights' – Leicester City to enter contract talks with title-winning duo

Recommended Posts

Very interesting. I wouldn't be opposed to Morgan as the 5th choice centreback next season, and definitely would take Fuchs as 2nd choice again next season. He can be an auxiliary centreback in a back three as well.

Justin’s versatility doesn’t make another LB a short term priority either. I did think the other day losing King, Morgan and Fuchs for good would be a blow to the team spirit and leadership amongst the squad

Yeah, if we kept both our defensive depth would look like

 

Chilwell Fuchs *J.J

Ricardo J.J

Soyuncu Evans New CB Benkovic Morgan *Fuchs

 

Looks good to me.

I know Fuchs already has plans to move to America with his family when he retires which is fair enough, but sad for us. I hope Morgan starts doing his coaching badges and stays on at the club after he retires.

 

I also thought Huth was doing some off-the-field training, would love to see him involved some way too.

Fuchs maybe harder to pin down, as he has frequently stated he wants to retire and play in the NFL as a kicker or something? Wes I imagine will have the red carpet rolled out for him, and rightly so. Absolute legend, give him the keys to the city.

They'll be massive influences on the squad whether playing or not and are very much worth keeping around. Two excellent leaders with great experience.

Fuchs has his Fox Soccer academy over here and in America so may be persuaded to stay one more year . He is reguarly flitting between the two

As bit part players and what they give us in team spirit and experience, they are hugely important still. I'd loathe to lose that whilst things are going so well for us. A year ago I'd not have been too fussed as it seemed we needed a huge rebuild but what Rodgers is doing seems to have brought every ounce of experience, passionnand desire out of the legends at this club.

Yep happy to keep them on, they don't let us down when they play, but don't expect to play and are obviously massive behind the scenes.

Keep them both... I can't help feeling our confidence in taking 2nd place so far this season and not wobbling over games in games we should win but don't (I.e Watford,Everton,Newcastle), is because we have players in the squad who have been there and done it against all the odds. Must instill a huge belief that anything is possible.

 

The word legend is used far too often but both of those are Leicester legends.

This is a graph to show the form of both Chilwell and Fuchs over the years

 

The graph has two lines.

 

See if you can figure out which line represents which player.

Hell of a signing, Fuchs, by the way. Wasn't he a free? 

Yes he was: as you say, hell of a signing. One of Pearson's last signings, along with Okazaki, although Big Nigel had gone by the time they both arrived.

I think if Morgan stays another year he has to move into a coaching role alongside it.

 

Fuchs is an interesting one, he's been going to the US for the last two years lol entire family over there, business etc... perhaps it's time he did that and we gave him an amazing send off?

Morgan will make a great long ball coach

maybe so, but we do need the occasional ball booting as far down the pitch as possible or the occasional big lump #9 muscled out of it lol

 

I like Wes. His football qualities are often, in my opinion, under valued and he definately has something about him in terms of presence and leadership which is hard to define and certainly lacking in many people who believe they have those qualities. 

 

Any 'project' based on certain values needs immovable objects that embody those values. Commitment, humility, team etc etc

Dont mind giving Wes some pocket money to hang around, but we need a replacement because if Evans gets injured we are ****ed. 

 

Fuchs will be useful for another year for sure.

Morgan is a great option.  Not past sell by yet, but obvs not a first choice any more.

 

Fuchs, the same, but a bit more likely to play, BUT Big Wes is a leader.  You dont have to be on the pitch to be a leader.
