Brendan Rodger, like Jamie Vardy, is finally receiving the credit he deserves. That is because Leicester City are a force to be reckoned with.
Supporting the contemporary Leicester City side is an absolute pleasure. We at Foxes of Leicester do our utmost to be diligent, thorough and impartial when analysing every aspect of the Foxes’ productivity and match performances. Regardless of the entire current 5-man team of FoL writers all actually being in the Blue Army.
It is fair to assess the club as going in the correct direction, presently. Every element of the backroom staff appears satisfactory – let’s hope the injuries do even out, but there’s no sign of any real issues as most outfits are enduring a similar situation to Leicester – the Recruitment department is literally one of the most efficient in the Premier League in the last decade, and the blend of youth and experienced personnel on the pitch is exceptional.
Incredible statistic hints at Leicester stay atop EPL
Much of the praise for this progress over nearly two years is due to boss Brendan Rodgers. Thankfully he left Glasgow and Celtic in February 2019 – consequently the Foxes side improved immensely. Specifically, for me, the passing and composure to be calm whilst retaining possession is my favourite part of Rodgers’ revolution. Or his evolution. In fact, it is a mixture of both.
As you can read in Statman Dave’s – a statistician who’s worked with MUTV – above tweet, Leicester under Rodgers have been incredibly impressive: victorious on 29 EPL occasions. With preeminent pair Manchester City and champions Liverpool the only teams winning more games since the Northern Irishman’s takeover.
Jamie Vardy managing to notch 40 goals during the former Reds manager’s tenure at King Power Stadium, a division high, is also an amazing feat. These stats do hint at a Foxes stay at the EPL helm for a while; certainly a top-four finish seems realistic.
