More for the Sven Revolution?

  As Curtis Davies said on his personal Twitter account this week, he was on his way to 're-join Sven's revolution'.  It really has been a revolution since Sven took over at the Walkers Stadium with the Foxes top of the league table had it started when he joined.  Although Davies looks to be now on his way back to the West Midlands to join Birmingham City, there has at least been one new defensive arrival of note today at Leicester.

  Patrick Van Aaholt is an under-21 Dutch international from Chelsea.  He plays left-back, joining Bruno Berner as a left full-back specialist and making some competition but also a chance for Bruno to have a rest.  He is apparently pacey and technically able with a desire to help with attack and midfield.  It leaves a nice back-four with the full backs both giving attacking options as the two centre backs and spread and cover if needed.

  Although this is not great news for Berner after signing his new contract, it shows more ambition from the new owners (such a commonly used phrase nowadays with Leicester) and gives Leicester what some at Chelsea have called, the new Ashley Cole.  It shall be exciting next Tuesday in Sheffield to see how he gets on in the Svenolution (don't know if that will catch on..).
