Aye.  Midfield and other positions you can probably rotate more and keep it fresh. Have Luiz, McGinn, Sanson, Nakamba and possibly AN Other to battle it out for the starting spots week to week.

We've seen the benefits of a settled back for this year so -unless Mings gets an injury at the Euros or someone breaks down in pre season - we're realistically looking at either a younger player who doesn't mind biding his time. Or an experienced pro in the Colin Calderwood/ Carl Tiler mould who is content to slot in as required.

All this stuff about Leicester being a well-run club after the result today just makes me think...I don't care who you sign, just get it right this time.

Leicester have sold all of Kante, Mahrez, Maguire and errrrr Drinkwater in last 5 years. Had a drop off after winning the league and quickly sacked Ranieri then decided Shaky wasn't a number one and Puel was too boring and underachieving so they haven't kept unsuitable managers in jobs for long and Rodgers was a masterstroke.

They're basically as far away from what we did from 2010 onwards as you can get...selling key players and replacing them with total rubbish which meant we quickly dropped from 6th to 16th (while pretty much brainwashing the fanbase we could do little about it) and Paul Lambert somehow staying in the job for nearly three full seasons.

Our present owners and Purslow have been brilliant so far but I suspect there's hard decisions to come in next two years that won't please everyone on here. To get in top 6 these days you have to get so much right in short period of time. It can be done but it's not easy.

Get McNeil and Wood from Burnley in a £40M package. 10M for wood should be enough as he is 29 and 30M for McNeil.

I'd take McNeil, he's young and has a lot of quality. Put him in a proper football team and he'd shine.

We pretty much did this season. All our permanent signings have been good.

Chris Wood is light years better than Davis and Wesley. He's scored one league goal less than Watkins has this season in two less appearances than him. He also has broke double figures in the Premier League for the last 4 seasons. He's currently at 31 apps / 12 goals and some are turning their nose up at figures like that?

Maybe it's yourself that's had enough internet for the day. ;)

In a team completely set up for him. He's not doing that for us.

At the risk of being overly technical in my analysis, Chris Wood is fucking wank.

According to The Sun, Chelski are going to give Tuchel a 150m 'warchest' this Summer. I guess we'd need to be spending something similar to make a concerted push for top 6.

Ah, not simply money to spend, but a "war chest".

How can they keep doing this?  FFP hasn't completely dissapeared has it?

Isn't it relaxed somewhat for the pandemic but I was hoping someone could explain this in detail and whether we could similarly 'go for it'.

I had a brief look at it and my understanding is that it's FFP has been postponed but that doesn't mean a financial free for all. I think owners are allowed to cover costs due to loss of income due to covid restrictions to stop clubs going bust. I'm not sure whether that would allow big spending by us or anyone else though. I believe that FFP is being ended soon as well and a new system is coming in. I simply googled FFP rules.

No doubt any new system would be designed to protect the Man United and Juventus types of this world and prevent any potential challengers to the establishment.
