woznotwos said:i think its all wage related and the need to cut the bill,im surprised elliots still with us to be honest!! its gonna be a hard season this year and consolidation should be our aim,a sneak into play off place would do me next season and finishing above forest and derby,lol
this was citys team against watford (1st game at the walkers):>>>>>
Leicester: Walker, Sinclair, Taggart, Elliott ,Rogers, Summerbee, Izzet, Marshall, Scowcroft, Dickov, Deane
Subs : Flowers, Stevenson,stewart, benjamin, mckinlay
and this will probably be our side against west-ham:>>>>>>
Leicester: Walker, canero, heatch, dabizaz/elliot, stewart, (wilcox/morris), tiatto, williams or nalis, nalis/scowy, dublin, new striker/morris/wright.
subs: coyne, gillepspie, morris/wilcox, benjamin, makin?
lets compare the players for each position, the team that played mostly in the promotion seaon, and the team which is likely to play against west-ham.
gk) walker/walker-same player
dr) sinclair/canero-sinclair was good, but canero showed he is a match for him. i would say that their both the same with canero showing more potential then sinclair.
dc) taggart/heath-this is a tough one because taggart was solid, but nothing special in that season, heath has improved a lot, so i'd say both players are the same (cos taggs was never the same player since his injury)
dc) elliot/ dabizaz- any of thse could play for the first game, matty played the watford game, so both players are the same
dL) rogers/stewart- rogers was okay, stewart is good for this division, i'd say stewart wins but only just
MR) scowy / nalis or scowy- both of these players same are the same, summerbee is not included cos he was a super sub.
ml) stewart/wilcox or morris- these plays there is not much between them so i say it is another the same
mc) muzzy/ williams or nalis- nalis and williams will do okay or good in this division but muzzy was class. so the team is worse in this position.
mc) mckinlay/ tiatto- billy mac did a good job, but i say tiatto is a slihtly better player then billy. so tiatto wins
fc) deane/ dublin- deane did a good job, but dublin is a better player by far so dublin wins
fc) dickov/ new striker or morris or wright- dickov will beat these, but if we get connoly or shipperely or harewood it will be the same, but the new team is worse in this position.
hope you've liked this cos it shows we wer eperhaps actually stronger in terms of strenght in depth as we were in promotion season, with competition for places. hope this keeps ppl that say we will finish mid-table, or be fighting relegation quiet.
