Fabulous Foxes Failing to Deliver

Leicester City may have begun to pull their season back, and starting to earn points and wins, but they still sit firmly in the bottom half of the table.


Currently in 18th, after wins at Wolves, and Leeds United, and a loss at Manchester City, Leicester encountered a notoriously difficult beginning, dropping points against teams that they would’ve had easy victories over last season. Defeats against Brighton, Southampton, and Bournemouth, as well as a thrashing by Tottenham and a loss to Chelsea, meant they had one of the worst starts of any of the premier league teams.


Leicester City came so close to Champions League last year- only to watch those plans slip through their fingers. And without the money that came with the Champions League, as well as the lost money from the tickets during the pandemic left Leicester struggling financially. They had to pull back on the transfer window to conserve money, and without a fresh roster, they have struggled to stay above the red zone.


Jamie Vardy, one of Leicester’s top scorers in the past seasons, has struggled to make an impact. James Maddison, one of the best in his position, has managed to score multiple times for Leicester, but with the shaky defense Leicester has had, he’s had a more challenging time than many have thought.


Brendan Rodgers has the upcoming world cup break to refresh the squad with new ideas and new tactics, and he’d better make it count, or else his job could be in serious trouble.
