  1. Trying to find some way to watch this.
  2. Shakespeare is my first choice, I would personally give it to him until the end of the campaign and see if he keeps us up & does well. If he does both, then I'd like to see it made into a permanent role. I feel as if with Shakespeare we'd be under safe hands, and that's inferring the future too. I genuinely feel he could do well with this group of players. I would then be looking at Rowett as a second choice, followed by Monk & Wagner.
  3. The 2015/16 season provided us with some unforgettable moments, thanks to his management. Ranieri will forever be a legend of this club.
  4. I got a call while I was out last night, re. Claudio. I am shocked at the timing of it, and a very tough decision for the club to make. To me, I wasn't actually seeing us surviving under Ranieri, and this is partly due to some players not being behind him. It was a difficult move to take, but ultimately we wouldn't want relegation under Ranieri. It's very sad how it's had to end. His persona in interviews was class, and he installed belief into the group of players. He delivered us the Premier League title and European football, and managed a team who gave us unforgettable memories. He will forever be a legend of the club.
  5. Shakespeare is my first choice for the managerial role, I said this a few weeks ago. I would let Shakespeare have it until the end of the season, and if he keeps us up, make it permanent.
  6. Since the signing of Musa I've been an advocate of him, but to me he just looks like he is low on confidence going forward. He can be excellent going forward with his pace and I feel we haven't seen the best of him, but what he was showing at CSKA isn't quite happening here, yet. I agree with @Babylon though, and he speaks a lot of sense I find. I'd prefer to judge our signings when the rest of the team is playing good football and in form. It's obviously going to be difficult coming into an underperforming side and I feel many of our summer signings have had that issue. I'm not suggesting our signings haven't impressed, but I'd like to see how they would integrate if we had momentum like we did from April 2015 - May 2016.
  7. Good result. A 2-1 defeat but there's still something to play for at the KP. With the Union FS Tifo for the return home leg, it (could) make for a very special night at Filbert Way.
  8. My team selection; I would've put Kapustka in the lineup but I'm led to believe he cannot play in the Champions League. Schmeichel Simpson Morgan Benalouane Fuchs Ndidi Drinkwater Mahrez King Gray Slimani
  9. If it comes to it and Ranieri does go for whatever reason, I would give the job to Shakespeare until the remainder of the season. Then, assess at the end of the season/in summer. If Shakespeare has kept us up, make it a permanent role. I'd actually feel comfortable with him being our manager, in the few interviews I've heard of him he speaks sense and comes across well. I get the feeling players would play for Shakespeare, being as he has grown strong relations with a lot of this squad over a number of years. Schmeichel, Drinkwater, Vardy, Mahrez to name a few. If not Shakespeare, I would be looking at Rowett, Hiddink or Monk.
  10. He has technical ability and we've lacked creativity this season - he has that, so should be featuring much more in the first team. I few others have touched on the CAM role, I feel he could also be very good in that position, and I've felt that for a while. His alternative position is of course out wide. He probably hasn't shown his full potential due to the lack of game time, and yet over the few games he's actually done quite well considering that. If he had the game time Gray had, we'd start to see the best of him and why he is in the Poland team. In these past few games he's shown some impressive glimpses of quality.
  11. Good XI. It's what I was hoping for pre-match. Kapustka behind Okazaki possibly? Certainly feel he has potential in the CAM role.
  12. Looking forward to seeing what this will be, the email from the group sounds promising.
  13. With Sevilla (a) in mind on Wednesday, this'd be my team to face Millwall: Schmeichel Amartey Wague Benalouane Fuchs Mendy King Kapustka Okazaki Gray Musa
  14. Lone striker. Service. Goals. Not saying he can't play with another forward alongside him, but the formation against West Ham (H) where he was the CF worked well.
  15. Hi folks, I've got to do some research for a college course. Would you mind voting in the polls about the Pizza Industry. Thanks.
