Yep, I'd imagine loads of posts because he scored a hattrick earlier. Doesn't mean he's going to sign!

I could post an article from some rag but what's the point. They all just make shit up anyway.

Yeah I’m pretty sure both clubs have around 15-20k on waiting lists for season tickets so like you say the club has current season ticket holders by the balls as they are scared of losing their seats.

Think we have 18,000 on waiting list. They all pay £25 a year for being on that list

BBC Sport claiming all of his goals against Hamilton were 'Outstanding'

 

So I thought oooh ill watch the highlights. Nothing outstanding about any of them lol. Is this a Scottish football thing? Bog standard finishes are seen as works of art belonging with the elite.

 

Think id sooner stick with Nacho. Just seems like a punt in the hope his scoring numbers come across with him. It may very well do but Nacho has had a decent season and looks hungry to carry on fighting for us.

I don't want him if it means selling Iheanacho to be honest. It feels like he is on the cusp of something.

I think we have space for both.

 

We have Vardy and Iheanacho then the next proper striker we have is Hirst.

We’re not a big enough and financially viable club to stockpile 3 strikers of that level imo. I like Nacho, think he brings good stuff to the team and he’s young, but if we’re in for someone of this level of fee then it’s because BR doesn’t rate him to be Vardy’s successor.

Can he be considered that young now? He's 24 in a couple of months and in terms of starts he's not played a lot of football for a 24 year old. I'd be wary of how much better he's going to get in all honesty and I get it's my own personal opinion but I don't see him ever being good enough to be a number 1 striker at a top 6 EPL club.

Why not?

 

Vardy is clearly the number 1 but neither Iheanacho or Edouard have proven themselves to be too big to play second fiddle to him.

 

Vardy won't be around forever, while his goalscoring has clearly not stopped this season you can start to see the drop off in terms of his overall impact on games. He doesn't press nearly as much as he did.

Vardy and Rodgers have said numerous times this season that he’s been told not to press and do as much work off the ball to reserve his energy. Which worked as he’s now sitting at home with the premier league golden boot.

You’re right, neither too big to be second fiddle, but my point was having three. We’re not paying 30/40m for a third striker, and Nacho surely isn’t hanging around for even less game time.

I agree, he’s not ‘that’ young. He has experience and probably should be at a club where he’s a starter, or certainly having more minutes than he does with us. I think that BR wants to move him on and have a more suitable replacement, having had time to fully evaluate Nacho and his ability.

That's why I would sell Iheanacho and bring in Edouard if i had the chance to do so.

 

Iheanacho has had a good season and scored at the same rate per minute as Vardy this season but he's been here three seasons and performs like a top ten PL player bust still short of a top 6 PL player. There is nothing wrong on cashing in on fringe players who are well into their 20's or at least players who have been at this level for a long time and not really kicked on to be top 6 level PL players. I'd sell any player who falls into this category for the right money.

Wholeheartedly agree, Iheanacho has been at the club a long time now and people are still talking about his potential, that says it all.

Same as Gray really who has had a better season this season tbf to him.

 

In the past when Leicester have signed top quality players you see it very soon after. Gary Mcallister, Draper, Lennon, Kante, Ricardo, Maddison all spring to mind. Very rarely are their slow burners like Vardy who had an excuse as he was a part time footballer for Stocksbridge and working in a factory at 23 and then catapulted to Championship football which is a huge leap in a couple of years and took his time to adjust.

 

The rule of thumb is if a player has been with you for years and still hasn't forced their way into the first team then he's probably never going to reach those heights. Once a player hits 23 then potential should be taken with a pinch of salt as they're fast approaching the half way point in their career.

He hasnt played more than 1000 minutes in a season yet, it's hard to consistently get a run of games when youre competing with aguero and vardy for playing time.

I'd rather the Vardy that got 18/20 or so goals that contributed more to the general play of the game to be honest.

 

If he doesn't score in a game then he generally doesn't do much else.

 

But the reality is that he's been told to conserve his energy in games because he doesn't have the same sort of stamina to press from the front like he does. It's only natural given that he's 33 and a half.

That's the point, that's a problem when your nearly 24, it's very difficult to play catch-up in that sense.
