    Nice pubs in Leicester

    Not surprised for that reason. It is alright in there but I guess Two Tailed Lion has taken a fair cut of its trade as it is much nicer with a better selection of beers. Still a shame though.

    Crystal Palace (A) 15 Dec Pre Match Thread

    For me the Palace game brings back great memories from that famous season of ours. 1-0 to Leicester. We're gonna win the league.........Great fans Great memories. Foxes never quit. I hope they have that fighting spirit today .

    Goose that laid the Golden Egg.

    Excellent and well thought out post. However, I'm not sure the football world and especially the premier league works that way any more. We seem to be heading for a closed shop of the top 5/6 clubs who just turn up and buy the best players from clubs such as ours. I suspect under your model that the best scenario would be to attract young talent maybe get a couple of seasons out of them and then they will simply be hoovered up by the bigger clubs. Then we have to press the repeat button over and over again. This is fine but is heavily dependent upon; 1 Having the coaching and development staff in place to do this and I would question whether we do at the moment 2 The number of youth players progressing to the first team and player successfully on a regular basis would require a significant percentage increase from where we are now. 3 The quality of players coming through to be always consistent enough to ensure survival in the premier league. I suspect the truth is that for clubs of our status the chance of developing squads for the long term is now so miniscule that it is virtually impossible. Unfortunately the development and wishes of players is far too tied in with the wishes of agents. Agents do not make money unless their get big wage increases for their players or make sure they are sold. I'd like to hope you are right but sadly I'm not convinced.

    Chilwell to Manchester City

    I'm not disagreeing with you, he is one of the best left backs without a doubt. What I'm saying is, he is a bit of a luxury player in our team, what does his bombing forward actually do, when the only striker we have is out injured? There is no one to aim crosses at, there is no one to snatch on to loose balls.

    Danny Drinkwater

    There's a lot in this. Also the shining example of how the grass isn't always greener. Had he stayed at Leicester would he have got more England calls? He certainly would have at least played. Must be questions over his fitness. Shame was a very decent player for us.

    Chilwell to Manchester City

    Exactly what I thought. Man City may buy a lot of players and spend a lot of money but their transfer fees are always around the 50-60million mark and no more. I'm afraid they won't be the only club to come looking at our young English players. Our title win just 2 years ago seems light years away now in terms of the development of the premier league. Something needs to be done or the so-called big six will just keep raiding the rest for their best players who end up not playing that often and we end up with the same top 5 or 6 year after year.

    This is well put and my thought as well - the sustainable model is become the destination for young players who don't want to bank on getting lucky the way Rashford, McTominay or Harry Winks did - the hungry ones who want to get minutes early and often. Right now they have to go abroad (Sancho at Dortmund), Leicester is in the position to make that not the case.

    Dani Olmo

    So he is! I assumed he had some Croatian heritage (e.g. mother's side), but no he is fully Spanish! Well regardless a midfielder that was at La Masia and plays for the top Croat sides... these are the credentials of a top class midfield player!

    It’s a massive unit and it’s never seemed busy enough when I’ve gone by.

    You've convinced me. Gomez, SMS, KPB and Parolo in midfield in the 4-1-2-1-2 narrow. Oh yes

    The OH Leuven Thread

    To be fair... that #25, he's another OHL youth product... and he's a... defensive midfielder (same as Libert that he replaced, #24) Pearson has played him as a left wing fullback, a right wing fullback, offensive midfielder... but i can't remember him playing Mertens (#25) ever as defensive midfielder But the boy has potential. Sorry man, it's not easy explaining the way our league works, and providing context as to how it came about.

    Without Zaha they'll spread their play more evenly which will mean more of the ball for Townshend so LB will be an important factor for us but I have faith in Fuchs. There may be an opportunity for Schlupp to sods law score against us but if we can forget last seasons joke of giving them six points and an 8-0 goal difference we should be looking at a 2-1 win or 1-1 at worst. Do what we're good at, don't let them become a bogey team (although they really get up my nose) and let's try to get Hodgson to call us a top ranking team and get him fined for disrepute at the same time.

    this is one of those players where i dare not even dream we could get him.... Massive statement of intent if we do.

    The point being you numbskull, he isn’t one of the best 2nd left backs out there. He doesn’t moan? His on 50k a week would he get a game over the players I listed no There is a stat there from who scored if you think having the most taken on defender in any of the top 5 leagues (when he was 30 and playing regularly) isn’t a weakness then you’re more stupid than I thought
