Vardy seventeen goals, the other forwards twenty five between them and Maddison and Perez have scored the majority of them . We really should have one or two others in double figures by now for a team third in the premiership . We need to up our goal threat considerably. Any new forward should be judged on goals not assists.

I'd argue the fact we don't is the clearest reason we're likely to drop down the table a bit. It's not sustainable to rely on one player for goals all the time.

I think our biggest area of weakness at the minute is creativity. We need a winger and CM who can run at players and create openings for others. We are too easy to play against and we can’t break down to defensive lines.

Rodgers is a disciple of quick movement and passing and not of running at and beating defenders hence our lightweight midfield , unfortunately we are nowhere near as good at it as Man. City who are if anything more lightweight than us. Attempts to bully Man.  City off the ball are usually unsuccessful because they don't get caught in possession very often but we do. We just don't have the players or the time to do what they do so we need more physical , stronger players in our forwards who can hold up the ball and force openings. Its too late this season but we must add a couple to the squad during the summer along with a proven and hopefully big striker.

Is Willian a realistic option as he has rejected a contract from Chelsea?

 

Wants 3 years, perhaps too much of an outlay on somebody who'll be 34 be the end of that deal. Would be a free agent however.

 

Sale of Albrighton at around £4mil could at least subsidise his signing on fee and wages in some part. Similar age and would certainly be more productive.

Preference is to stay in London as his family are settled there apparently.  Has already knocked back Barcelona on this basis.

 

On the basis of the above and with Mourinho there wouldn't be surprised to see him rock up at Spurs.

I agree with this too. I'd like him here on the right terms, but it won't happen.

 

We lack intelligent, cultured players in my opinion. He'd fit the bill.

Saw a link for Morgan Sanson, but cannot find it again :@

Probably rubbish anywhere.

Think he will get linked with everyone as Marseille have no money. Thauvin is close to coming back and has 1 year left on his contract in the summer, may be another option for the left sided right winger. 

 

Edit: thauvin is back on the bench tonight

Great player but never going to sign.

Linked with Alex Telles from Porto again £40 million up against Everton, surely the sale of either Chilwell or Digne would come first before any team move for him.

Chelsea have been linked with him as well. If Chelsea still want Chilwell and he wants to leave then selling Chilwell for £50-60m if we could get it, and signing Telles for £40m would be good business. Chilwell is quite a bit younger than Telles but hes really not had a good season and I wouldn't be against selling him if we got a decent price.

Which bigger forward are we gonna sign then? Mitrovic wouldn’t be a bad shout for when we need someone to hold the ball up or someone to head in one of those crosses.

Ryan Fraser on a free, but his wage demand is stupidly high, that it has West Ham written all over it. Still better than anything we have.

He's wages are higher because he's a free transfer though. As long as it isn't ridiculous like 120k + then we should at least try and get him in. He's probably a 25 million pound player who is a realistic target. Even if we only keep him for a couple of years before selling, we'll make profit.

I've heard that George Hirst is not bad , oh wait a minute he already plays for us. It is the need for someone who can hold off defenders to give room for our smaller attackers rather than heading ability that I think is important , If Giroud was six years younger he would be ideal.

He won't ever come back here, his attitude stinks and I don't think he's liked by many at the club. He'll be loaned out again or sold in the summer.

Presumably, they'll be queueing up to buy him from us then. 

 

Oh, perhaps not.
