    Absolute, Grade A legend. Whatever happens I wish him the very best. X

    Tough call for Arnautovic. Play under dictators, getting rich but in a half empty soulless stadium for a team barely anyone has heard of or care about. Or go to China.

    Bid imminent.

    Only if there is some serious evidence for it, no one ever accuses Wes Morgan or Hamza Choudary of laziness, no one ever accused N'Golo Kante of it. When I grew up in the 90's it seemed to be the other way around, Philpott and Oldfield were considered our lazy players and Mark Blake was a fans favourite and workhorse in midfield. Demarai Gray will look lazy when compared to Mark Albrighton, Kelechi Iheanacho will look lazy compared to Jamie Vardy. Maybe it's just a case of that at this point in time we have a couple of very lazy black players in the squad.

    I'm sorry but that's just ridiculous. Keeper made a great save from Ghezzal first half when through on goal, Albrighton through again and shot deflected over. Okazaki kicked the ball straight at the keeper from 9 yards, another one he missed a clear header, another one he couldn't connect on a tap in from about 6 yards out, Maddison straight at the keeper from 7 yards, Nacho straight at the keeper. That's before I even talk about good chances from a bit further out.

    In his entire time playing for us I can only think of a handful of times he's played 'up front'. Shinji has never been about the goals, and the job he has done (despite a poor last season) has been excellent, and has had a great deal to do with our success.

    Exactly. And (yes, I know I am a broken record), we are yet to try him in a midfield 3 where he takes less responsibilities for defending and more for creating (which is what he was brought here to do).

    A legend of the club and if he goes I'll wish him all the best. He's completely finished though now and we should be taking the money if it's anything substantial.

    There are some people in the "brigade" whose points of view I can accept. Then there the utter morons who haven't got three brain cells to rub between them, posting such idiotic stuff 24/7 that it totally ruins any decent argument they might have because they look like clowns.

    Pinching this quote from the Barnes thread as it basically sums up exactly how I see things going for Puel. We've seen how his signings have improved the squad - Ricardo is arguably our best signing since Kanté and came here because of Puel - and we've started to strip away some of the deadwood in the squad. In the summer when the majority of league-winners contracts expire then that'll free up a load of wages and we can look at adding a few more quality buys, as well as bring back loan players. We'll also have Amartey back from injury who was looking much-improved under Puel's stewardship. He's given more gametime to younger squad members than any manager in recent years and it's paying dividends. We've got talent out on loan who look to be an improvement on (at least) the squad players we have currently, and as they mature, improve and gel together we'll see big improvements as a team (and a reduction in naive mistakes, like Maddison's dive). He's got us into one of our highest ever league positions despite performing WAY under par on several occasions, and he's done so whilst dealing with a myriad of suspensions, injuries, and individual mistakes. We could have been favourites to get into the FA cup final for the first time in years were it not for a couple of poor penalties (out of his control). He's helped to guide the team through one of the most emotionally difficult periods our club has ever had sincerely and with dignity. --------------------------- He's not perfect - I think we can all agree that some performances have been pretty dire - but he's absolutely a 'builder' like NP was and his vision is coming together slowly but surely. With a decent end to the season and further astute transfers in the summer months we could be in a very strong position (relative to our history) as a club - be that under Puel's long-term management or otherwise.

    Also, the couple of moments from Nacho shown in that game weren't bad. That cushioned header for Maddison was class and should have resulted in a goal. He should have 2 assists from the last few games he's played but for his team mates' finishing I also think its a myth he doesnt run and that he has a bad first touch If Vardy had the minutes Nacho has and came on and barely touched the ball, as Vardz does through a lot of our games, he would look just as poor. Obviously most responses to that on here will be. 'Bollocks. He's just pure rubbish, not even a footballer'. I think he's properly scapegoated personally

    Totally agree Matt and I actually say the ones so offended by this are the ones potentially with the problem. I'm not seeing colour when I see Kelechi as lazy I just see lazy, my opinion and I'm entitled to it!

    I suspect they'd take £10m up front with add ons but we'll offer £18m up front with more add ons.

    Right now, there is no amount of money I'd take for Vardy. With our paltry attacking options, he is priceless for the club.

    You have no idea how much I want him to move to Vissel Kobe to play in an attack of David Villa, Andres Iniesta and Lukas Podolski.

    No issues with diversity issues themselves whatsoever, on the contrary, I applaud and agree with the sentiments 100%. However, I'm more than a little fed up with bandwagons and having things rammed down my throat, usually by politically motivated individuals who are more in it for their careerist or brownie point gaining personal agendas. Even people of my older age group get it believe it or not. As for my kids, they are so over it all and most of these predudices and attitudes are looked upon as archaic and rediculous. Are you going to always have a bigoted stupid minority? Yes of course you are and you'll never stop those but they are just that now, a minority. I just think that sometimes these things get overdone and it can do more damage than good as people switch off and stop listening to the message. No offence meant.

    Not bad for a player who was recently told by Beaglehole that he "wasn't good enough to play CB as he couldn't head the ball properly"....and has then subsequently been elevated to the Romanian full national squad and been outstanding at CB for LCFC U23s. Certainly knows his stuff that Beaglehole bloke...!

    I’m shocked at how many of you think this couldn’t happen. Vardy has already said he struggling to play for Puel and you need to check out Rebecca Vardy and the post she likes on twitter re Puel. IF Chelsea do come calling, those of you supporting Puel may well need to re think the negative effect he’s having on our squad.

    I was born and bred in this country of black Caribbean ethnicity. I have heard 'black' players called lazy numerous times over the years where I felt it was a stereotypical thing to say. In the case of Kelechi I would like to see the stats but he certainly looks lazy when playing.

    he's clearly got something about him but yeah, end product needs work. I kind of like how Puel just chucked him in at the deep end a few times though - it's a risk but imagine if he'd have just clicked and started banging them away. Could have happened. It didn't and now he's off on loan which is what should be the next step. Puel doing things in a rather sensible, measured order, again - imo.

    Absolute legend. Came here after a very good goal scoring season in Germany and was also Japan's main goalscorer. We used him differently and he changed his game for the benefit of the team. You don't get many more selfless team players that sacrifice their game for the benefit of their team. Good luck Shinji, whatever happens you'll never be forgotten.

    I don't think we'll qualify for it because we're not good enough, is my riveting hot take from this one. But if we do, I want it absolutely taking seriously. I am absolutely, utterly flabbergasted that any matchgoing fan could not want us to qualify for the Europa League. I question what you honestly want this club to aspire to, and what you're actually getting out of following Leicester if you actively don't want us to be in it. These things about teams struggling because of Europe - there's a degree of it for sure, but it's very much a Premier League propaganda narrative, just like the shunning of nearly every other competition in the footballing calendar, they're being promoted as hindrances to this promised land of midtable Premier League football where ultimately, the only proper beneficiaries aren't actually the fans. Fans themselves should not be towing this line. I don't expect us to go into it and win it if we do qualify, but if we don't take it seriously, in the quest of... you guessed it, qualifying for the Europa League, then I think I'd frankly start to lose interest in even bothering with it anymore. I also stress that if we do get there and end up in the qualifying rounds, that we've got another thing coming if we think we can arrogantly waltz our way to the group stages just like we think we can waltz past these lower league sides (and sometimes don't). It needs to be taken seriously, cherished, and we really can create some special memories. Hull went out to Lokeren, Southampton went out to Hapoel Be'er-Sheva, West Ham suffered consecutive losses to Astra Giurgiu. It could happen to us if we weren't careful.

    I don't see why we need two CDMS. If we want to play posession we can have two CAMS in Madderz and Silva. Silva is decent defensively as well so it could work. 4-1-2-3

    The problem is finding the replacement that gets close, we've already spent about £90m and not found a decent striker. The way I look at it, is that it will be easier to replace him with an extra £50m in your pocket, than it will be replacing him in another year or two with no extra cash in your pocket. They wouldn't offer anything close to £50m anyway, they'll offer £20m and it's just not worth it for that price as a few places lower in the league can lose you £10m in the blink of an eye. So what's the point.

    No he's not. Vardy is crucial for us hopefully for another 2/3 years. Relegation becomes a genuine possibility when he goes.
  46. 3 points
    He's not. Players who can not only create, but also defend well and work hard, whilst offering up probably a 6/10 even on his worst days are a rare commodity.

    I agree with your sentiments. I also agree that due to our league position and expectations, that experiments could be made with Barnes, Choudhury and even others perhaps. It could be very beneficial in terms of giving those players both valuable game experience and helping decide recruitment strategy in the summer. The negative side to that of course would be the constant over the top melt downs on here if we lost a game. We could win three on the trot against reasonable teams but lose the fourth against a lower place team and it would only be the latter that would be fiercely commented on.

    If I was to face a firing squad I would choose Gray, Ndidi and Okazaki to do the shooting. i’d be comfortable of surviving that ordeal.

    An old Cowboy went to Starbucks and ordered himself a cup of coffee. As he sat sipping his coffee, a young woman sat down next to him. She turned to the Cowboy and asked, 'Are you a real cowboy?' He replied, 'Well, I've spent my whole life breaking colts, working cows, going to rodeos, fixing fences, pulling calves, bailing hay, doctoring calves, cleaning my barn, fixing flats, working on tractors, and feeding my dogs, so I guess I am a cowboy.' She said, 'I'm a lesbian. I spend my whole day thinking about naked women. As soon as I get up in the morning, I think about naked women. When I shower, I think about naked women. When I watch TV, I think about naked women. It seems everything makes me think of naked women.' The two sat sipping in silence. A little while later, a man sat down on the other side of the old Cowboy and asked, 'Are you a real Cowboy?' He replied, 'Well I always thought I was, but I've just found out I'm a lesbian'
