Daniel Iversen

Following the Chelsea debacle, the 25-year-old Daniel Iversen was drafted into the side as a last throw of the dice from Brendan Rodgers. But like so much this season, it probably should have happened much earlier. Iversen seemed to make some very decent saves throughout his run. Keeping Everton at bay at the King Power Stadium. But he also presided over a disastrous 5-3 defeat at Fulham where he constantly seemed one step behind the play.

the Danish ‘GK’ commands his box well and seems to be a goalkeeper that has much promise following an impressive season at Preston North End in 21-22. He will probably be rewarded with a further run in the team in his return to the Championship, although he unfortunately, has the second-lowest save percentage for City in these nine seasons after Danny Ward. Perhaps the goalkeeping area was where it all went wrong after all.

Alex Smithies

What absolute genius decided to put Smithies on a £30,000 a week contract for two years? Just to prove what a basket case of a club Leicester City has become, Smithies won the fans player of the season. I fully expect John Rudkin to notice this as an endorsement and double his wages on an eight year contract. Some questions for the club:

  1. Why in such an embarrassing season would you do a Player of the Season?
  2. Why would you include players that haven’t even played?
  3. Do people working at the club have any knowledge or interest in football?
  4. Is stopping the squad apologising on social media the stupidest move ever?
  5. When will this nightmare be over?
