Firstly, we have the best English attacking midfielder in the world with James Maddison. A player of that caliber should be enough to keep us out of a relegation battle. Along with him, we have Harvey Barnes, Youri Tielemans, and Kelechi Iheanacho as attacking options. Our defense includes Ricardo Pereria, Jonny Evans, and Victor Kristansen. We have so many gifted players yet we’re second to last in the league.

You just need to look at the international break to see how many talented players are in the squad. Just read this list of players who had a rating of 7.0 or higher during the international break. The list includes Daniel Amartey, Timothy Castagne, Patson Daka, Wout Faes, James Maddison, Harry Souttar, Çağlar Söyüncü, and Danny Ward. All of these players clearly have the skill to be great but suddenly they stink at Leicester. There’s only one person you can blame. That is Rodgers and his tactics.

Too many choke jobs

There are too many bottle jobs to even begin with for the ex-Liverpool gaffer during his time with the east midlands team. You just need to look at this season alone to see how weak our mentality is and how easily we choke leads. This season we have lost the most points in the Premier League from winning positions. We were the only team where we could not trust a lead and it was truly embarrassing.
