Redirected Leicester City fury reveals deep-rooted problems and desperate need for immediate action

In Brendan Rodgers’ final days, either the game plan was wrong or Leicester City executed the right game plan badly. Both are favored from Saturday, where City seemed to have no game plan at all.

Now it’s clear that this team is in dire need of an outside player to come in and lead. They need a new direction, a new impetus, new ideas, new optimism. Without that, they will decline.

The hope that the manager’s sacking would magically inspire an upturn in results, as it often does for so many other clubs, has not borne fruit. The past two games have only shown how deep the problems are at Leicester. A new ruler can at least mask these problems long enough to ensure survival.

Because Saturday’s game was set up as well as it could have been for a team in such disastrous form. Having picked up one point from seven matches at the start of the campaign, City’s next game was at home to fellow strugglers Nottingham Forest amid a raucous atmosphere. There was a big reaction on the field.

On Saturday, the situation was much the same. It was a sunny day and the visitors were relegation battlers who had lost eight of their previous nine away games. Union FS’s display sent supporters into a frenzy. The clappers returned and, though much maligned, turned up the volume. This time there was little reaction on the pitch.

For the first 10 minutes, City’s display matched the atmosphere, but beyond that they looked clueless. They didn’t know how to get the ball out of their own half.
