On the topic of injuries that title winning team must surely lay its foundation and credit to NP and the sports science he delivered? To paraphrase Gordon Strachan who stated "games are normally won or lost in the last 15 mins, good players can be beaten by average players who are fitter, it is the ability to think rationally which can not be be done when you are knackered"
BR teams start the season unfit and do not fare well with injuries, someone needs to have a word with him imo. As business surely we conduct internal reviews by external people to look at ways to improve, innovate and stay ahead of the curve? Innovation (under NP and CR) is what brought us success, we took BR " disrupted the market" theory and through recruitment, sports science and innovation, delivered the greatest achievement our club has ever known, BR needs practice what he preaches!
Back to thread, did anyone here the interview with Ian Holloway about the mess that Chelsea are in? He mentioned on Hawksby and Jacobs that when he took over at Leicester there were 76 players, not sure if that is embellishment but even if it was 40 that is ridiculous. The board need to be radical and overhaul everything the BR has implemented, he should just be left to coaching and have a small say in recruitment of players with no ability to say yes or no.
We need to return to ethos under NP and Ranieri have a single focus that everyone associated with the club buys into.
