Good for us as Leeds are a competitor for us rather than Leicester.

Not really worked out for Perez there, squad man.
Unfair on Ayothe there. I think that’s exactly what he was brought in to be. Pretty damning that Leicester can pluck our better players to become their back-ups.

Agreed on Leeds though. They’ll comfortably stay up but not sure they can keep up their intensity over 38 games.

I don’t think they spent £30m on him to have as a sub, and initially he started a lot of games but over time has become a sub rather than a regular starter.

Wasn't it supposedly a release clause? Not sure if that was ever confirmed.

I just don't think they really knew what they were signing. He's played out wide a lot for Leicester and that's not really his game, he's a striker or a second striker.

Doesn't say a lot in that case that he doesn't get a game as a second striker / in behind Vardy when their only other CF is Iheanacho.

I think he's a perfectly good player and his goals return in his final couple of seasons for us was decent, but for a team aiming for crash the top 4 he's not good / consistent enough to be a starter and that's what we all knew. For a mid-table team he'd be starting most games, but towards the business end you need to deliver more regularly.
