  2. I just don't think a loan move will necessarily benefit him, he's already playing enough matches here and by and large doing well. He was man of the match vs Aston Villa, likewise on his debut last season and has had a number of other really good performances this season. I get that he's been taken off at half time twice but I think that was as much tactical as it was him being poor, he certainly wasn't poor vs Wolves he's had a decent half and it was a shock he went off but from memory that was due to the impending substitution of Traore. Thomas is only 19 and already

  4. @Foxes96 makes a very good point. Fernandes turned MUFC from average to sensational. They went on an incredible 15 match unbeaten run to the end of the season, winning 10 and drawing 5 (35pts from 45) while we struggled with injuries along with inexperience. One good result for us/one bad result for them and we would've made top 4. And if we had had made top 4, we might have struggled in the higher quality CL with all the injuries which may in turn have knocked confidence in the league etc. Everything happens for a reason. We didn't "bottle it" last season. We simply came up slightly short on

Tavares is the latest player off the Cityproduction line, making his senior debut in last week’s Europa League tie against Slavia Prague having impressed manager Brendan Rodgers in pre-season g

  7. I think the idea is that each year, European qualification enables us to strengthen the squad, so each year we'd be that little better at coping with the extra fixtures. It's been particularly unfortunate for the club having to compete in the Europa League in such a compressed season.

The side represents the foxes since 2018/19, when he left FC Porto to head to England, but it is not the only Portuguese member of the working group at the behest of Brendan Rodgers. Sidnei Tavares. He may not yet be a well-known name in national and international football, but he

  14. These are really poor and we should be turning up solely with the aim to win. Rodgers and the squad shouldn't even be considering the possibility of a draw. This is a team that nearly lost to a WBA team that played the 2nd half with 10 men.

  15. This is all part of the process, we are giving him first team opportunities and he will now hopefully sign a new deal. Its been a great turnaround, we have a potential star on our hands however much people want to dismiss me promoting him so much this season. I only did it because I could see a potential waste of a very talented youngster who's been with us since he was about 8.

  18. A lot of people thought the same after the Tories won a fourth consecutive term in 1992. But Labour won a landslide in 1997 and remained in office until 2010....... "events, dear boy, events", as Macmillan apparently didn't say. Admittedly, the success of the vaccine rollout probably means bad local election results for Labour this year, unless some other negative "event" derails the Tories before May. The disgraceful mishandling of pandemic response before the vaccine rollout might yet come back to haunt the Tories if a proper investigation happens before 2024 &am

  22. Not blaming the OP for posting it but this is just another article which is absolutely awful from the Mercury. I mean what is the point they are trying to make “if Rodgers leaves” it’s a load of bull. Course he’ll leave at some stage but can’t really see it happening in the immediate future and when it does happen then discuss other managers. All there articles on Us really are embarrassing these days. I really don’t give them the time of day anymore.

  23. I think he does actually believe it. People love to ignore facts and figures if they don’t fit their agenda. Hasn’t Southgate given England debuts to about 40 players? He’s been at an awful lot of Leicester games this year, strange place to be if he wasn’t considering any of our players.

  25. Zoom / Team calls that involve forced fun are the worst, somehow worse than in person but luckily they seem to be on the wane. If you enjoy dressing up for Zoom or cocktail making / meals on Teams then good for you but just bear in mind its not for everyone (I guess the same goes both ways). A friend had to attend a coffee morning by Zoom for an old friend's birthday. There were about 15 people on a call and the loudest 2 or 3 just overtook the conversation and she only got as far as a hello with the birthday girl as a result bar showing her face. You simply cant replicate the usua

  27. Yeah. Really sad news about Ian St John. Without wishing to sound overly dramatic, saint and greavsie was a big part of the weekly routine when i was growing up. The dull 80s. A time when you had to search out football action and chat. (Even the absurdity of twisting the aerial on my house to pick up grainy pictures of Anglia showing highlights of us at Ipswich) Too young to remember him.as a player but as said above, a great broadcaster, twinkle in his eye, huge sense of fun and as someone else said - a perfect straight man foil to greavsie RIP Saint.

  29. We firstly need to recognise that the injury prone nature of this bizarre season will not be a new normal, and that things will be more or less as before (in football terms), our position now would look much more secure without further personnel and less or no injuries. Recruit where we need to. Winger, striker, AM, bid a fond farewell to our retiring soldiers. Win the CL.

  31. Shankley himself always held that the arrival of Ian St John and his partnership with Roger Hunt was the catalyst for Liverpool's renaissance not just him. A very clever, athletic and talented player. There's also recollection of Saint and Greavsie on the 'deathlist thread' - but this was staple viewing on a Saturday lunchtime before you went to the football. It became a British institution. He was happy to play the straight man to Greavsie and their own often self-deprecating humour, but that belied the fact that both had appreciable insight as pundits and professionalism as broad

  35. Said it before the last election and I'll say it again here. Labour are absolutely ****ed. Losing Scotland and its 50+ seats means that the route to an out and out majority is now practically shut off. Without that vast swathe of Scottish seats it now means that Labour must now take back the red wall and the Midlands, smash it in Wales AND make MAJOR inroads in the South to gain a workable majority. Something that even Tony Blair in 1997 struggled with. I for one can't see how they even begin to do that. When it comes to the big topics during an election like th

  36. Maybe he is just throwing JJ a bone. He hasn't actually had to deal with the selection headache and hasn't even said he would've picked him anyway. I don't like Southgate any more than the next person but this "anti-Leicester" bias is cringeworthy sometimes.

  38. Ian St, John R.I.P. Half of the greatest double act of football punditry in the 1980's. Due to pre match pub commitments, on Saturday mornings always set me state of the art video cassettte recorder to tape Saint & Greavesie as there was nothing funnier on the box. Classic Straight man / Daft lad humour but both extremely knowledgeable & informed pundits. Unmissable. I always thought he would outlive Greavesie but not to be. Not too bad a player either!
