FOFANA: FOX OUT

In the mists of time, Leicester City was famous for three things: swinging up and down between the top two divisions; miss the FA Cup Finals; and those sand dunes that Jock Wallace used to make his players run up and down until their noses hurt. But the events of the last few years have upset all of this. Now they are all Premier League titles this one, one success in the FA Cup, the other regular European qualification. Ah Claudio! Brendano! Jamie and Kasper! How could you? What happened to the old certainties? Our tacit agreement? The postwar consensus? The social contract? We have a deal!

Luckily for those of us who wholeheartedly wish it was 1982 again, it looks like Leicester is returning to average. Last year’s eighth place in the Premier League was three places down from the previous two seasons, which means no European tour this time, and now they’re supporting the entire division in a way that would put Mark McGhee to shame. I have to admit it’s only four games of the season and a similar cold start last year didn’t hurt Arsenal too much in the long run. But Leicester’s next game is against a revitalized Manchester United, and if the length of the queue forming on the outside is anything to consider, they will only be able to field a team of nine players, including Rodgers himself and Gianni.

Youri Tielemans leads the line. Depending on who you read, the 25-year-old Belgian midfielder is the subject of a £ 19m offer from Arsenal, Newcastle or a ‘mystery club’, which seems intriguing, until you come to the conclusion that the club mysterious is trying to do things with discretion is almost certainly either Arsenal or Newcastle. James Maddison is also on Newcastle’s radar, Caglar Soyuncu has been linked to a transfer to Wolves and the only reason Tielemans is leading the line is because Wesley Fofana finally made one, signed a seven contract this afternoon. years with Chelsea. Seven years! Wow, he really wanted to go out.

The possible signing of Reims defender Wout Faes before the market window closes on Thursday night could take away a bit of the lead, although given the general direction the club is taking, we will be very surprised if Rodgers – himself linked to Aston Villa – will still be in post comes the end of the season. And he knows where Leicester might end up as a result. But even if the worst should happen, rest assured, Foxes fans, history teaches us that Leicester always find a way to recover. So where to find Alan Smith and Gordon Milne de nos jours?
