    Hi.I'm a big fan of Dinamo Zagreb and i've been watching Benkovic for the last 3 years at our club.You've got yourself a fantastic centre-back , i mean this kid has a potential to be in top5 in his position in Europe.Technically he is superb , very strong in the air , fantastic tackle capabilities , he plays smart and scores lots of goals by his head.The only weakness i noticed with him is that he had lot of weird injuries during season , i mean he was a lot of the court.Now he's ok , but he needs to work in the gym and get more muscles cause he will have to deal with lots of strong forwards here in Premiership.Other cons than that i didn't notice , if he would stay off of this injuries you will be delighted with him.

    Very best of luck to him. One of our true heros over the last few years and a very important player for us during our most successful time ever. Always came up with important goals and although the last 18 months or so have not been great for him here he will always be one of my favourite players. Also gonna miss his song which was one of the best ever for one of our players. Good luck leo

    Memorable match for me was vs Swansea when he scored a couple and the stadium was singing "4-0 to the one man team" - Vardy was suspended - what a character, great times, happy memories for us and him - good luck and bon voyage Leo

    He is genuinely, the best signing in the history of Leicester City FC. All our momentum started with him. He dictates our speed and style of play. He defines what we’re about. He scores in literally all the big games. He’s the perfect wind up merchant. Opposition fans and players loathe him. He lead us to a Premier League title. And be he will lead us to more this season. And he only cost us £1m. LEGEND.

    Expect disappointment and frustration. We've spent almost our entire history bobbing up and down between the top two flights. We're never really boring, we're usually in either a relegation scrap or a promotion race. In 15/16 we got confused. We were supposed to be relegated in 14/15, when we weren't, we realised too late we'd survived and were already trying to get ourselves promoted when we cottoned on. The damage was already done and we ended up winning the league. Nightmare. We proceeded to try and get in to a relegation scrap the next year to balance things out.

    That summer - when Pearson was appointed - was the day the club turned around. The work he did off field was immense. And don't underestimate how hard it is to get out of League One at the first time, never mind cruising the league.

    A nice piece on LCFC.com https://www.lcfc.com/news/798764/benkovi-ill-give-my-heart-for-leicester-city/featured - Filip Benković speaks exclusivelyy to LCFC TV following his move to King Power Stadium - The centre-back joined the Foxes from Dinamo Zagreb on Thursday - Benković says he will give his all to be a success at the Club The 21-year-old Croatian youth international signed a five-year deal with the Foxes after a successful spell in his homeland. Benković, an imposing centre-back, laid out his ambitions during an exclusive interview with LCFC TV, explaining why joining a Premier League club is a huge step in his already promising career. Upon being welcomed to Leicester City, Benković said: “Thank you very much – the feeling is amazing to come to such a big club. It’s a big honour to wear this jersey [for the] Club. “I will give all my heart to this club, to all the fans, to everybody. Hopefully we’ll have a very good result this season. “The ambitions of Leicester City are so big. I like the Club very much and I think it’s a very good step for me to the next level. I’m very happy to be here. “On the pitch, I do my best. I fight for the Club and that’s all I can promise to do. The fans will see what I have and fully hope I will do a good job.” Benković has spent a decade at boyhood club Dinamo Zagreb, where he lifted the Croatian cup twice, as well as a league title. “This is my first step and it’s my first move to another club because I was at the same club for all of my life,” he said.

    Ab-so-****ing-lutely. Not in the sense they make a rumour up out of nothing, but I believe a lot of what is said is just recycled from twitter or other sources and passed off as their own information. I can count on a couple of fingers the times we've been given transfer information on here before it's all over the twitter already. I should add, that I believe many do get information, we see that with kit info or match info, or leaks about bits and bobs. But, I also think there is innate desire to be seen as knowing this information, which leads to people trying to pass off things they have no knowledge, taking flyers based on rumours that already exist etc. I'm pretty active on twitter and love trawling for news. It's pretty obvious that if I stumble across something on there, come on here later in the day and someone ITK is saying "we're in talks with a defender", when we were linked with a defender three hours earlier. My bullshit radar starts twitching, and I can't help wonder why this information is rarely offered up before it's available elsewhere. If I was half arsed, I could post everything I see on twitter, every rumour and I'll be right enough times to look like I know what I'm talking about. That's just one persons opinion, the site owners opinion (I think) is that it stirs up debate, creates traffic and that each person is free to believe whatever they want to believe. The last bit of course is absolutely true, I don't like it but others seem oblivious to it, so they can knock themselves out. Anyway, I'd best stop before Finners tells me I'm being sanctimonious again.

    When you look at Pearson's spells in context of historical league finishes it's incredible the progress we made. We would never have won the league under him but we'd be continuously improving to the point of where we are now, at least in my opinion. If you look at Burnley as an example they've stuck by their manager and had a clearly defined transfer strategy which has paid dividends. Pearson was a slow learner but he usually got there in the end. I'm aware this is speculative but we were in a healthy position under his guidance, I'm not advocating for him to return but it baffles me that some still refuse to even grudingly admit he did an outstanding job.

    Clearly been a slow news week, given how the Boris article debate has sustained prominence. And for me, the bigger issue here is how the reporting has fanned more flames than the original article would ever have done. We’ve ended up having an all too public debate that Johnson ultimately suggested was a non-starter; and as usual, the debate is picked up by others and stretches out to a myriad of associates and not so associated topics (case in point on these last few pages). Now, I can understand people suggesting the language and comparison used by Johnson is at best unfortunate or at worst a deliberate attempt to be inflammatory and rude. However, when trying to get a point across in writing, you have to consider your target audience and use language accordingly - and often to gain credence that language does have to go close to the edge - and I would suggest the language used is most likely to appeal to people who feel the Burqa should be banned. I still maintain - reading the article itself, there is not that much to throw arms up in the air about and that other actors rather than Johnson have caused this mess.

    Izzy eat your heart out... My wife was always so angry at me for having no sense of direction. So I packed up my stuff and right. How does a duck fart? Through his arsequack. My dog is named Minton. Today he ate a shuttlecock. Bad Minton. What did the drummer call his twin daughters? Anna one, Anna two... My wife says she’s leaving me as she thinks I’m too obsessed with astronomy. What ****ing planet is she on? I got a hand job from a blind girl yesterday. "You've got the biggest cock I've ever felt!" she said. "You're pulling my leg!" I replied. Sat in the garden all day drinking I've had 11 yogurts, I'm absolutely Mullered.

    Easy. They play an amazing football in which scoring goals, lots of them, is the main objective. They also give their chance to young talents, while keeping a few stars around to help them blossom into world class players. From Thierry Henry, George Weah or David Trezeguet to Anthony Martial and Killian Mbappé, the list of talents who emerged on the scene thanks to Monaco is a long one. Sure, the team is not rich enough to keep all these talents when EPL or La Liga clubs come knocking at their door, but they always manage to rebound, sometimes reaching amazing heights. In 2004, they reached the Champions League final and lost to Mourinho's Porto side. But in getting there, they eliminated the likes of Chelsea and Real Madrid. In other words, Monaco tries to build success, and not simply buy it like Paris Saint-Germain has been attempting for the last few years. The latter might statistically have better chance to win a European Trophy when they have the means to afford to two largest transfers in the history of football, but where's the fun in that? At least Monaco's business model is sustainable and doesn't require a Qatari sugar daddy to run. Since childhood, Monaco has been my club. As a kid, I've watched matches under pouring rain in the old Louis II stadium, the one that preceded the current one. I saw players who went on to gain international fame, and I never got bored one minute in the process. I've watched Claude Puel as a player, then as a fitness coach, and finally rise as the head coach. This club made him the Manager he is today, and that's why I believe he might be a good fit for Leicester, because he knows how to build a team and nurture its young talents. He did that as well in Lille, and that's why Eden Hazard acknowledges him as the coach who's had the biggest impact on his career. Sure, he might not be the most exciting person to listen to in interviews (he's the same way in French), but don't be fooled by his dull delivery. Inside he is still the fierce competitor he was as a player. And if there's someone who can resurrect Ghezzal's motivation and confidence to allow him to regain his best level, I believe Claude Puel to be that man.

    Important things to know: There used to be a guy who looked like George Michael, who came on at half time twice a year in a jeep, sang a song, proposed to his girlfriend and got knocked back. The owner gives away one free beer per fan on his birthday, but you can lick the stamp off your hand and have more if you can be arsed. During our title winning season, Robert Huth took the world's shittest free kick in a 3-0 victory against his old club Stoke. That's about it.

    When you think about the squad we now have, we could play about 3 systems, my personal favourite would be: Kasper Ricardo - Soyuncu - Maguire - Evans - Chilwell. Ndidi - (Silva/Iborra) Maddison Vardy - Iheananco (But as I say, we could play a 4-4-2, a 4-3-3 or even a 4-5-1 away from home. Options, at last!).

    Yes I'm happy(ish) with our transfer business. I think Maddison is a good signing but I think Evans will be solid for us, especially if we're looking to play a possession game. My only negative is Mahrez is worth more than £60m so I voted Musa as best business, especially considering I didn't think we'd get more than £10m for him. I have belief in Puel as I have done since his time here. I do believe it will be a "revolution" - different type of football, players that can play football and younger players coming onto the first team scene - but I also think all this won't be implemented successfully in only a season. These things take time.

    Classic Wymeswold. An American fan has decided to pick Leicester as a team to follow, there's been a whole host of replies ranging from useful information, anecdotes, legendary players, classic FT jokes and others. Wymsey decides to relay some crucial information, "Customer service at the stadium, at times, can be a lot to be (sic) desired for." Never change Wymesy.

    That's a complete distortion of the debate - as a quick read of the last couple of pages will confirm. Lots of posters were engaged in a debate about Boris' comments and the use of the burka. Max Wall sympathised with the plight of Muslims having their religion associated with crime. In response, you posted this.... So, we were NOT on the topic of grooming gangs. We were on the topic of Boris/burka/Muslims in UK. YOU introduced the topics of "Muslims" blowing up innocent people and of "Muslim grooming gangs". So, if I "moved the goalposts" by extending your topic of grooming gangs to wider child sexual abuse, you had already moved them a lot further. I then made the distinction between "Muslim" terrorists and "Islamist/Islamic extremist" terrorists, and made my point that the grooming gangs were mainly of Pakistani (and Afghan) origin as well as being Muslims, that Muslims from other parts of the world weren't known for being in UK grooming gangs - and that non-Muslims (e.g. Hindus) from the same region were involved in child abuse in their homeland, though apparently not here....raising all sorts of questions. YOU (not "we") were on the topic of "Muslim grooming gangs" and "Muslim" terrorism. YOU now want to limit the debate to that. People can make up their own minds why you should want to do that, but I refuse to abide by your agenda. Again, YOU (not "we") were "talking here about people of a certain religion targeting those of a different one". Certainly, it seems relevant that these gangs target white girls, though their race, class and vulnerability (often girls from children's homes) seem more relevant than their religion. But it's perfectly valid to want to extend this to the wider problem of child abuse and why it happens. Kids abused by individual white (or non-white) blokes (or women) matter too, as do kids abused by priests or kids abused in India. Also, while there certainly are distinctive features of abuse by (mainly) Pakistani Muslim grooming gangs, there might also be features in common with other forms of child abuse (culture in some parts of the Indian subcontinent, power of perpetrator and vulnerability of victim, contemptuous attitudes toward children/women, social alienation etc.). Sorry, but you don't get to divert a debate onto not one, but two topics of your choosing, both hostile to Muslims, and then get away with accusing others of moving the goalposts. You may want to limit debate to your agenda, but others don't have to agree.

    I think you're dead right, but I think and accept that it's a transition that we've got to go through. It's been in need of a root and branch change since our 'win'. From the moment Kante left, a bit of player power, poor recruitment that following season, whatever the well documented reasons were, things started to go down hill badly. Whilst the odd star is vital, a successful team is usually only the sum of all it's parts (we of all teams know that, but, we were left with a mish mosh of not necessarily bad players, but players who were perhaps asked to play out of their natural position or players that couldn't fit in with our particular then style of play or who found it difficult to adapt to the Premiership. It needed someone to come in and shake things up! We weren't, despite what some deluded people think, an attractive proposition for a top manager for a number of reasons and neither did there appear to be one available. If it hadn't of been for the odd circumstances at Southampton, I doubt whether we'd have got Puel either. At lesst his previous career in France is respected by a number of quality French players and journalists. Time will tell but this summer's apparent more position targeted approach to our transfers appears much better and you can at least see some rhyme and reason to it. The age of the players and market place that we bought them seems more in keeping with hopefully a buildable brighter future compared with the nearly 30yr olds Slimani, Silva and Iborra type investments for big money in two cases. These being players who have little time left to adjust, no possible sell on value and, arguably, not that great in the first place. Not all this new batch may work out with question marks perhaps over a couple of them but there does seem at last to be a discernable vision. Sadly it's not all going to join up this season due to words like adapt, gel, youth and inexperience. There's even more promising youth on the sidelines also. There will be mistakes in abundance so expect to lose quite a lot of games but it will be exciting to see them develop over the next couple of years. Let's just do our best to stay positive rather than those few that clearly just like to appear to know it all and who would find the negative in whatever the club did for there own supposed kudos and personal self gratifying agendas. We're not a big club but a club with big ambitions. The new journey starts here.
