  1. Seen a lot of stick for Justin over the past 24 hours. A shaky first 10 or 15 aside I thought he was very solid. Granted he wasn't tested all that much but let's not forget he won the penalty, played the ball to Barnes from which that penalty arose, and also got the assist for Praet's assist. As farfetched as all that may sound, it amounts to a key involvement in all 3 of our goals. He played well. Positioning will come in time.

  4. It's wrong to dislike people you don't know, but watching Jermaine Jenas fall inexorably into the upper echelons of sports broadcasting, on the basis of not very much insight and precious little verbal dexterity or original input, grates a tad.

  5. I have a theory on why we signed him instead of an out and out left back. This is just a theory and not based on any facts or inside sources. I think the people in incharge at the club fully expect Ricardo to leave next season. Castagne will play LB for now when Ricardo returns from injury but then next season will replace him at RB, by which time Luke Thomas will be experienced enough to become the first choice permanent LB.

  6. He’s probably arguably the quickest And most dangerous forward player in premier league history! I hear often ‘he’s not that good of a footballer’ ‘he’s not technically good’ now ‘he’s not that quick’. Time after time, seasons after season, this ‘1 dimensional footballer’ scores and scores and scores. For an unfashionable club, to a rate and quality of the elites of the past, with MUCH inferior players. Hes broke records you wouldn’t dream of, he’s racked up numbers any striker would be proud of, he’s won a golden boot at the oldest a player had in Prem history and he’s won the

  10. These pundits are desperate for the status quo, aren't they? Any player who looks half-decent should immediately move to another club. Heaven forbid other clubs show some ambition- no, it's all about the top 6 (which we were part of last season).

  13. Sky are aware that Leeds are a newly promoted club that haven't been in the Premier League since forever and Brighton are now an established top flight fixture, right? They loaned they young player to a lower league club for some experience and now he's back in the squad.

  14. So glad to see Iversen getting the games at the right level to keep him developing. This feels like the point where the tie between the clubs is starting to produce real benefit. In both directions.

  16. Iversen did really well. He looks very confident. I can really see why Leicester thinks he can replace Schmeichel in a couple of years. Lots of potential! Sowah has been nothing short of amazing. He has realy flourished under the new manager, who plays him more as a CAM instead as a winger. I really had my doubts about him in the past, but now he's one of our best players. If he keeps developing like this he may one day be good enough for Leicester's squad.

  17. A more clinical Barnes could be the difference between us and the likes of Everton, Southampton, Arsenal and Spurs, and propel us to another top 6 finish despite the perceived upturn for the likes of the Toffees, Saints and Gunners. Luckily for him with the Europa League he's got more games to play himself into goalscoring form. He's such a dangerous player, so dynamic, so forward-thinking, so energetic. He just needs composure in front of goal.

  18. Cracking debut and some on here need a bit more faith in the club reading some of the posts over the last few weeks and i swear some would rather we had lost today so they could carry on moaning. The guy has come here to improve his game and cement a place in his national side playing with other team members. and get a few more pennies in his bank account. Lovely worked goal as well people despite the moaning on some threads our recruitment is more hit than miss

  19. Think back to when he first started taking penalties for us. It was almost because there was no one else to take them and almost felt like he was reluctantly stepping up. He openly said he used to just smash them and hope. Then look at those two penalties today. That’s Vardy though - works hard and just gets better and better at what he does. None of us had really seen Vardy take penalties like that until today and at 33 he still steps up and surprises you with a level you didn’t know he had. In terms of natural ability there’s a debate to be had, but in terms o

  20. Don't look at what he does on the ball, look what he does off of it. Closing down players, filling gaps, putting pressure line the ball, doubling up with the Fullbacks in defensive positions. Keeping the ball and moving it on to a more progressive teammate is just what he does once his primary job is done. That's what a CDM is. You don't look for them to carve out chances, it's not his job and by him being there doing his job, it allowed Youri and Praet to do theirs more effectively. 91% passing accuracy and 88% tackle success proves he does his job well.

  25. I can understand that. But Manchester City and Spurs are both recent entries into the so-called 'big 6', aren't they? Once you accept that you have to agree it's subject to flux. I mean, of course it is. Teams generally will improve or get worse over time. There exists scope for teams and fanbases to grow. So why the need to focus in on a certain group of teams, seemingly in an actual effort to establish this group? Players in the 90s and 00s when the likes of Jenas were around wouldn't have been pining for moves to Manchester City. And if Jenas was ever more than a ban

  28. But the point is sport is competition, not moving all the talent in to one place. The Premier league thrives because we have competition. If you listened to the pros they'd have anyone with half a chance of success at the big clubs with the rest of the clubs scrubbing about like the Scottish leagues. For the league to be entertaining we need the top six to be competitive and that won't happen if we're shipping all of our good players to Manchester or London. Worth mentioning that Jenas is a buck toothed turd.

  31. Today would've been so much harder to win without him. The only player in our team (while Riccy is out) who can travel with the ball at speed. He pins back defences and creates space. Yes he missed a few chances but to see him with one of the lowest scores in the ratings thread just shows you what your average fan knows about football. As a clue, it rhymes with suck Paul.

  32. I am happy to say, i'm perfectly satisfied with the club's current ambitions, plans, philosophies, vision, etc etc. Overall, It's much better than I can ever remember. I do feel sorry for the narrow minority of supporters who don't agree. We should all keep clear in mind, the club is not a cult, there is no obligation to support it and there are bigger clubs out there, that every single person could find similarities in ambition and aspiration to match their own. To the few unhappy fans questioning the ownership's investment, I think it's time to be honest w

  33. For me the man of the match. Ran the show, got stuck in where needed, dictated the tempo of the game. The frightening thing is despite all of that, I would probably "only" give him an 8/10. He's capable of getting even better. He had to turn up today, and he did and then some. Love having him at the club, one of my favourite players we've signed for sure, and goes into my list of "players I wish I could play like" alongside Esteban Cambiasso and the legend himself Muzzy Izzet!

  34. There's been a fair amount of debate about the state of the clubs finances recently and having had a look at the clubs Companies House registrations there's potentially more fuel for the fire for this debate, suggesting a new topic might be useful. Leicester City Football Club, Companies House Page: https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/04593477/filing-history What is shown within the filings on Companies House is that a new charge has been registered to Macquarie Bank Limited in August.

  35. Really enjoyed watching Carragher watching those clips of Ben White for the first time live on air but trying to style it out like he watched him every week last season. And now apparently Lallana will know the Brighton area well having played for Southampton....the two places are over 60 miles apart.

  36. Hunting/shooting animals for sport. A while ago, there was a pic on the cvnts of our time thread of some Ameican fellas posing for a pic next to a brown bear they had shot. All had smiles on their faces. Telescopic sights, high power rifles, yeah really cool, tough and brave of you. How about getting up close and have a wrestle with it instead for a real sense of achievement?

  37. The word legend is used frequently nowadays, quite often with regard to some very ordinary footballers. Come the sad day when Jamie has to finish playing with us, there is no point looking for a similar type of player as they do not exist. The bloke is irreplaceable & you will never see his like again. I have been watching us for 60 years & I put him alongside Dougan, Fern, Worthington, Heskey as the centre forwards that have given me the most pleasure & enjoyment. Jamie Vardy truly is without dispute a Leicester City legend

"If the neglect of care homes was the scandal of the first wave, the second wave scandal may prove to be the concept of “low-risk” people. We now possess a much deeper understanding of Covid-19 as a disease. In the first wave, it was thought to be a respiratory infection from which most patients recovered fairly swiftly, while a small minority would succumb or require intensive care to pull through.

Then, after the understandably gloopy start from all, he started to show the ability that's gained him a new contract. As many have already pointed out, his close ball skills and confidence to work in tight spaces was clear to see. He moved the ball around basically, but effectively, he kept possession well and recycled cleanly. He's more a thinking persons type of player, wh

  44. With respect, I would suggest that it is actually quite hard to not put a foot wrong all game at the level he's playing at, especially when the player whose role he's stepping into is one of the best defensive midfielders in the league. For reference, he played one less forward pass, fifteen less backwards passes and one more sideways pass than Tielemans (who I thought was excellent also). A steady and safe player is basically exactly what he needed to be today. Get the ball, move it on, don't give it away - he's a holding midfielder, that's his job. If you would honestly rather ha

  45. I wouldn’t idolise owners, as people like you say owners are in it for their own reasons, but people surely can’t deny that we have never had such a period of sustained league success and investment? (we own our facilities and are improving them). Not to mention when they turned all our debt at the time into equity. That can only be attributed to the current owners (or management who are appointed by the current owners). I can’t think of any other owner (apart from League Cup success in late 90s) where our standing has never been stronger. Other teams (so many to count now) have falle

  46. As a club, we are run superbly under Susan whelen’s stewardship but we are suffering big time without outside investment from the owners. We aren’t alone here but there is a perception that this isn’t the case. King power should probably be paying an additional 15/20m/annum which would bring down that wages/earnings ratio a bit. And that’s just at fair value without any shenanigans to add extra monies and remain within FFP. I’m ok with the owners declaring that they wish the club to be self sufficient but surely king power should be paying a fair price for the exposure ?? I realise
