Players of Leicester City Football Club should be wary because Foxes manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed that the current squad will soon transform. Existing personnel would do well to take this as a warning or motivation, up their games and work extra hard because it is what fans deserve.

Some of the Blue Army who were unlucky enough to be spectating at King Power Stadium on Monday deserved a refund. Or, at least, another free beer courtesy of Khun Top Srivaddhanaprabha at the next home game. Blimey, what a way to return to Premier League action following such a brilliant run of results prior to the glorious World Cup!

If you have been hibernating for a few days after eating too much Christmas dinner, I’ll fill you in on my dismay. Leicester were defeated dreadfully by Newcastle United at the beginning of the week. Losing wasn’t the real sore point for the Foxes fans, it is the way in which they lost – with a whimper.

At least the first half can be described as feeble; I believe that the entire encounter was a bit of a disaster for LCFC and none of the team looked good afterwards. If we can’t be triumphant, let’s go down fighting and honour our defensive roles, especially!

And boss Brendan Rodgers has finally been letting the Leicester players know that what he’s seeing isn’t good enough, in no uncertain terms. Although usually more measured, the former Swansea City, Liverpool and Celtic gaffer apparently told the group off at half-time against the Magpies. Then he cancelled their day off on Tuesday, much to the delight of some of the faithful, including myself.

These warnings come at a perfect time to lift the outfit, get a few playing better by fear or incentive and potentially weed out the bad eggs, if there are any at LCFC. Why I say this, is due to what Rodgers said recently. Fans will be pleased with two elements of the below quote: confirmation of incoming January transfers, as well as bad signings possibly moving on.

"“Players can only leave if there are offers. That’s something that the club will look at. Over the course of the next couple of windows you’ll see a big transition of the squad, as there are players out of contract and various other things. It’s about moving players on, but players have to want to go and there has to be interest for them.”In addition to that, Rodgers stated this:“[Signing a centre-back] is definitely something in the pipeline,” City boss Rodgers said. “We’ve had a number of meetings with the ownership and the board, in terms of availability of funds.“We may not have the funds that others will have, but we will certainly be able to improve the depth in our squad. Money is available and we hope to get the right players in with that.”"
