  1. As we approach the end of the decade, a 10 year period which will be remembered fondly, mostly for the premier league win, it's easy to forget just how long 10 years is. At the start of this decade we had just come up from league 1. By the end of the 09/10 season we'd secured a playoff spot. Taking a 0-1 loss into the 2nd leg of the playoff final we overturned the deficit to lead the tie. I remember sliding on my knees in my living room as we led the tie 3-2 on aggregate. Chopra scored, a goal in today's game that wouldn't have stood, I'm certain the goal would have b

  2. People forget he was playing Championship football until Puel brought him back last January. So he's basically had less than 12 months at Premier League level. Cant expect a 21 year to jump from Championship to a team with top 4/title aspirations. On top of that his general play is actually very good, superb footwork and link up play, decent assist numbers. Harvey Barnes is over achieving at the moment. Cant remember last time someone made such a huge jump in levels and still slotted in quite smoothly. Yes he has room to grow and his finishing is surprisingly not what I expected bu

  3. Even £50 million signings sometimes take 2 or 3 years to adjust to new surroundings. Seems Barnes is the scapegoat at the moment,unbelievable considering the run we are on and hes played most of the time during this remarkable run. Seem to remember the same being said of Chilwell about a year ago and look what happened there. Trouble is, now some of our fans have been spoilt and now expect us to have the right of 11 Messi's in the team. Stop the moaning. Enjoy the fact we have an amazing ambitions club, owners, team and manager and enjoy the ride. What a question! Ho

  11. I've had this argument about Chilwell for over a couple of years with my mate. He loves to say "he has no end product". There are only 19 more players in the league across all positions with more assists than Chilwell and out of the full backs it's only the Liverpool pair with more. I'm not sure what he wants from his left back, to defend like Maldini and attack like Ronaldo would be my guess. It's the same with the stick Barnes gets. There are only 9 players in the PL this season with more assists. I think Barnes has the potential to be like Mo Salah but I do think Harvey is a sl

  12. But the difference between him and Maguire is that he *does* have the pace to get back and does it brilliantly. Leicester under Rodgers deliberately play a high line and it’s one reason we have the best defence in the league. The whole team in the 4141 formation can remain compact with ~10 yards between every player yet still be so far up the field the front 5 players can press the opposition and force them into mistakes. We look better as a team this season because our pressing is better and because Soyuncu doesn’t get exposed in the same way Maguire did. Rodgers said the team sh

  16. Granted I've not watched a lot of Leicester games this season but what I have seen the notion that you have been "carrying" Barnes is a bit ridiculous imo. He's done fine anytime I've seen him, do you want more from him, of course but with young players that takes time and perseverance. I could see the point in moaning if this perseverance was impacting results but it's the exact opposite, you've been on a terrific run of form and Barnes has been part of that. If as a club, fan base or whatever you don't want to sacrifice and have the patience to let young player make their mistak

  19. There is quite an element of truth in that, particularly in having a team that mainly picked itself week afterweek. We were however extremely fortunate on the injury front. Also, a majority of our players now have been involved during international breaks compared to a minority back then perhaps. We have to learn to effectively rotate our squad if we have any ambitions of firstly getting into Europe next year, putting up a decent show whilst there whilst still competing effectively in the Premiership to make sure that it's not another one year wonder.

  22. It’s funny how policies that are considered just normal in many countries (i.e.) national public transport, which is brilliant and cheap in countries like Germany and the Netherlands, is widely considered “radical left” in the UK now. We actually already have nationalised trains, just that the nations of Germany, the Netherlands and France make loads of money from it and not the UK, which is fine :-/

  26. The current leader walked past me on Saturday as I was washing my car. I looked up as he approached, did a double take and smiled, and he gave me what I can only describe as a stoical smile in return. I have to say I felt a little bit sorry for him.

  27. If it's just a negotiating tactic and we're just pretending to subscribe to a guaranteed no-deal scenario if talks aren't completed on time, all on the basis that the EU will also be incentivised to avoid being hit by the loss of free trade between us, then that's the equivalent of threatening to break our hands so we can slightly bloody the EU's face. Besides, if it's so obvious to you then don't you think the folks at Schumann will be just as aware, rendering the tactic moot?

  28. 4 years Thats gonna be a big pay off in 18 months time, Everton are a bit like the Milan clubs these days (Inter are actually quite good at the moment tbf). Spend loads, probably get in FFP trouble, sack the bloke that’s assembled an expensive squad, rinse and repeat. Recently I’ve really grown to dislike them, them going down would be stupendous

  32. Could someone please explain to me the attraction of Mikel Arteta as manager, beyond people thinking he's going to be Pep Mk II, just because he happened to have been his assistant. Just seems like another moronic decision by a big football club, taking gambles they didn't really need to make.

On another Brexit point, here's the excellent Stephen Bush pointing out why No Deal or a very Hard Brexit is a distinct possibility. I really think those people saying that the big Tory majority means we end up with a softer deal are deluding themselves: "Boris Johnson will redraw the Withdrawal Agreement Bill to make a further extension of the transition period past the end of 2020 illegal, leaving him with just a year to negotiate a free-trade agreement with the E

Its how B.Rodgers decides...and being the manager that has got us this far...and a manager that a high majority of fans in this wanted.. I am more than Happy and relaxed in supporting & encouraging the players he selects...including system!! And IMO the critic of Puels selection was total nonsense...Many just couldnt understand where and what Quality M.city had as a squad,and where we were. Why Risk injury,or tiredness for the rest of the season,there must be IMO in this competition,Rotation. Why

  40. That's a great point that the club can't ignore. Man Utd have cleared out a dedicated area for an organised supporter's group and are expanding it in the 2020/21 season. If one of the most commercial clubs in the world can do this and recognise the importance of something like this, then LCFC have no excuse.

  41. For the love of God rest Tielemans. Go back to 433, Perez and Albrighton will be completely fresh and I'm not convinced Sharky is much of a drop on Barnes on current form. Praet only played 45 minutes today, put him in for YT, maybe give JJ and Fuchs a run and then keep the spine in tact around them. I'd say that's a pretty decent mix of rotation and first team.

  42. Meanwhile, as ceremonial matters continue at Westminster, the EU's chief Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, has given his reaction to the news that Boris Johnson plans to formally enshrine in law a UK-EU post-Brexit trade deal deadline of 31 December 2020. "We will do the maximum," Mr Barnier told reporters, when asked if it was possible to reach such a deal in just 11 months. Even Barnier getting in the Christmas spirit of getting brexit done. To the maximum!

  43. Propose greater accountability for the granting of peerages - removing the hereditary part of it was a good start, now perhaps for greater insight into the competence and fitness to serve as a peer before it is granted, rather than just allowing it as a favour. That MP's can go straight from Commons to Lords without almost any kind of accountability on the level of public service they've done to allow it opens the door for so much graft - regardless of whether or not money actually changes hands. I really don't care about their bank balances (though it's funny how almost all critic
