Again it wasn't just the players, Ranieri was messing around with things, changing tactics confusing players. You can't perform at your best when that is happening. I know for a fact that Fuchs puts...

In terms of spending like a basement club, only 5 teams spent more on players than Leicester did this season.

Arsenal, Man City, Man Utd, Chelsea and Crystal Palace. We spent more on players than...

I for one have no idea whether they were giving 100% and neither do you so it would be unfair for me to try and comment on that. All I do know is that the tactics we employed from around Christmas...

I just think the system should be fair and consistent. I don't really care how many players are banned if their actions warrant a ban.

It is flat out wrong that a club could be without a player...
