    Don’t rule Leicester out for the title. Yet another hugely impressive performance.

    Their recruitment must be one of the best, if not the best, in the Premier League.

    Every time they lose a player they have another waiting in the wings it's an incredible scouting network/youth setup reminds me of Southampton a couple of years ago.

    Forfana, Maddison, Justin, Barnes, Tielemans, Ndidi all 24 or under and all regulars. Add in the experience of the over 30s like Jonny Evans, Vardy, Albrighton, Schmeichel and it’s a good mix Rodgers has available to him.

    Yes, but they haven't really lost any actual stars have they really, Maybe only Mahrez, which makes it more impressive really.

    Kante too who was probably thought to be their biggest loss at the time.

    And Drinkwater, but he and Kanté were a few years ago. I only mentioned the sales of £80m Maguire and £45m Chilwell because they were recent losses and probably left a gap in the team given their values.

    Has Lampard been sacked yet?

    Honestly neither were popular here, Chilwell restricted us attacking and didn't get on with Barnes who's been let loose this season. Maguire was error prone as he still is. We have three CB's and three FB's all more reliable than Maguire and Chilwell!

    Leicester signed Kanté 5.6m Drinkwater peanuts, Maguire 12m, Mahrez 0.5m, Chilwell 0m (academy) for a total of less than £20m.

    And sold them for 32+35+80+62+45 = £254m

    A profit of £234m!


    Which ironically is only slightly more than what Lampard spent in the summer on Chelsea flops.

    I really like the look of Fofana. Where do you keep finding these players?

    ...and probably the same amount they ripped-off local businesses when they built their new ground.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    Any smidgen of moral fibre in that club and they'd make an offer of payment to all those that were ripped off.

    Not a cat in hells chance.

    Can't remember his name, but that Leicester manager has the knack of quietly getting his teams to play very good football, damn and blast him!

    I will say that I much prefer him doing it with Leicester than Liverpool mate!

    Brendan Rodgers.

    An exceptionally good coach.

    Rogers? He'd provide a boost to any team.

    In all seriousness isn't Shevchenko the favourite? What a basket case of a club. Tuchl is probably the only viable option for short term Chelsea views.

    Somebody must be lined up for the Chelsea job.

    Rodgers would be an excellent choice for them, but why would he leave Leicester at the moment? Everything about them is on an upward curve. Maybe at the end of the season he might be tempted.
