New Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers has told England striker Jamie Vardy, 32, he will build his team around him. (Telegraph)

Possession based football manager, managing a side primed for counter attacking football & it showed today. Rodgers changed tactics to get Vardy into game more but Vardy ended up having fewer touches than anyone on the pitch, the one quick direct move they mustered Vardy ends up scoring. Chillwell, Periera & Vardy all great options for counter attacking style & completely nullified in a possession based setup. Interesting to see what way Rodgers goes about things but I don't see him changing his style or philosophy.

From this longer article.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/47603536

I bet the dossier and presentation have been out a few times since and beautifully polished in the interim.

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers had spent his whole career prior to his first job at Watford preparing for the moment he became manager.

The Northern Irishman had a dossier and handbook on who he was, what he would do and how he would do it - and delivered "an incredible presentation" to the then chief executive and chairman at Vicarage Road in 2008.

Fair fucks to Brendan. He’s done well since he arrived at Leicester.

A win today for 4 on the bounce. He coulda is a favour v City in a few weeks. A draw will do Brendan.

They will be in the title race next season under Godgers, no doubt about that.

Hopefully they do us a favour v City but Harry Maguire is so far up Kyle Walkers arse I'm expecting him to fix the game.

A prelude to getting more compensation if / when he leaves?

Or an actual long term commitment?

Probably both.

Like I said in the Arsenal thread, he can keep doing well at Leicester, and have one eye on the Manchester City job, rather than take the Arsenal one now.

Who know, maybe he'll be the one to come back and replace Klopp?

Leicester City is a single entity

Leicester players are a collective

One way of looking it- put it this way tho- which sounds better “Liverpool is European Champions” or “Liverpool are European Champions”?
