Yeah I don't disagree with that, I just don't think there's currently as much of a difference as is being made out. We've got big ambitions sure and we don't want to be associated at the same level as Leicester, but wanting to be somewhere and actually being there are two very different things.
Our DoF/manager can sell the long term project, but maybe Leicester have ambitious plans of their own they can sell. Are players even that interested in long term these days anyway? Agents definitely aren't
It's also things like the fans, and the expectations of the club. Leicester are generally very happy with a top 10 finish. We sack managers who finish 8th.
Silva's acknowledged this already. He was asked about our fans being demanding. And he said (paraphrasing) 'yes the fans are demanding, but that's what you have at a big club. If the fans aren't demanding, you know that not much is expected of you'.
I'm not being biased or delusional. I'll call us shit when we are, and I know we're well behind the Top 6. But we're a much bigger club than Leicester, and one bizarre season won't change that.
