What if we get to November and it becomes apparent that Thomas isn't up to the required level yet? That's a massive risk to take with our season.

Worked with Soyuncu. I'd rather just splooge the money on a quality right winger than buy a Chilly replacement. 

 

It's a risk definitely, but one I'd be tempted to take.

He might get injured. If Chilwell goes we're going to have to get cover at least. 


 

I’ll stick my neck out and say we maybe just need to loan a top class LB for a season and spend the money elsewhere. I agree Thomas isn’t rdy just yet to take on the full responsibility But one season of playing a few more games and learning From a top class LB and I think he would be fine

Lets be honest, we got extremely lucky with Soyuncu.

The only worrying thing about Soyuncu was that he looked seriously out of sorts after lock down, let's just hope it was a blip.

 

Worryingly Evans will miss the first matches which means that Soyuncu will be the main man, this worries me as I think Evans is so important for Soyuncu's game. With the potential that Chilwell has also gone we could be a shambles in defence purely with people not being used to each others game. 

 

Not even sure if we will be playing wingbacks or a back 4 at the start next season.

 

I can't remember there being so much uncertainty around the playing side for quite some time.

Jake is a Leicester fan and has done a lot of media work in Norwich, think he used to live there too.

Slimani, Silva, Gezzal, Musa, Mendy, Inler

We've had loads of players with no resale value. 

Didn't we get our money back, or most of it, on Musa?

I’d take £60m and Marcos Alonso. Get the replacement sorted in one transaction 

I’ve said this from the outset but I think £40m is more likely. Bring in a player who is a lot better going forward and proven in Europe while Thomas goes on loan for a season until he is ready to take over as our first choice LB.

Telles goals and assists are obscene for a left back, if we want to increase our end product a player like him would be very useful.

Telles has been my dream ever since the chilwell rumours started!

Be good if someone could put up one of those stat comparison graphics of Chilwell, Alonso, Lewis and Telles, to aid the debate 🤔

Well thats who its going to be probably

Would be slightly disappointed if this is the case. I’m not saying Lewis isn’t a good player, however you could get the likes of Tagliafico, Telles, Reguilon, Grimaldo, Zinchenko or Angelino. You could get any of these for £30m or less.

 

I get what your saying regarding resale value but Thomas is going to be ready in 2/3 years. So if we can get an upgrade for 2/3 years then I say do it. Can’t sign every player for a resale value, sometimes you need to improve now.

 

Imo Lewis is not an upgrade or even as good of a replacement. If you are right on how highly the club rate Thomas, then I would rather us give him a chance.

Telles would be my No.1 target. For the sake of the debate on the chat at the moment, this would be my ranking for a Chilly replacement.

 

1) Telles

2) Reguilon 

3) Tagliafico

4) Grimaldo

5) Angelino 

6) Zinchenko

7) Lewis

8) Alonso

Maybe we fancy a safer bet t LB than Telles, as bizarre as that sounds. You know, same league, wasn’t crap, resell value, HG quota, etc

Playing safe didn’t get us Ricky P, who imo is a top 3 right back in the premier league.

Quiet like the Angelino shout actually, not sure about him in a flat back 4 but as a LWB he'd be perfect. 

Always been impressed with him, just seems short on confidence. Every time he gets playing to a good standard, the first choice left back came back.

But can you answer the question from @urban.spaceman please Geoff? Is Lewis to Leicester legit?

Not playing safe got us quite a list too. :D

  • Ghezzal
  • Musa
  • Slim i
  • Silva
  • etc

But yes,  Ricky is crazy good (how the hell is he still here???? Soooo glad he is mind) so some you lose, some you win :dunno:

I think the difference is the list of flops seemed like panic buys. Ricky was lined up in advance.
