  2. After 8 games, Leicester City sit top of the league! An incredible achievement given our end of season collapse last tine round and the general pessimism it brought out in many fans (myself included!) on the forums. And whilst there are many factors in this turnaround, one of the most obvious ones is the use of a new system from Brendan Rodgers, a 343 system. Here are two examples of lineups using the system, on the left the game against Wolves, and on the right against Braga: The hallmarks of this system are: Three centre backs. Two wingbacks that provi

  3. Not a Leicester fan (Wycombe), but a thought occurred to me when I read some Man City article bleating on about them being the "outsiders". The anti-establishment club in the PL is actually Leicester City. Not in the way of being contrarian and thumbing your noses at other clubs at any opportunity, but because of what you symbolize to the "big six"...the possibility of someone else winning it all. I read something (I think on here?) where an exec from one of the big clubs supposedly said something along the lines of "the last thing we need is another Leicester". Then you have Leicester being t

  5. ______________ Been said numerous times before but he really is a legend of the club. Fallen out of favour in last few years but can't question his loyalty, professionalism and respect for the club despite playing less. A consummate professional.

  6. Puel took one for the team - he was willing to do the dirty work most managers would never have been willing to do. He'll never get anything but hate from most "fans" but he's a big part of the reason why the club is set for a potentially excellent run in the next few years.

  7. On Sunday 27th September, Leicester City travelled to the Etihad to play Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City, a manager Rodgers had never beaten in his management tenure thus far. Both teams went into the game with several injuries, but I think it’s safe to say that no one saw the eye-opening result of 5-2 to the Foxes taking place. So how did Rodgers best one of the best coaches in world football so convincingly? I’m going to try and break that down for FoxesTalk today. Introduction To start things off, let’s take a look back at the last 3 fixtures between the two clubs.

  8. Couldn't find anything about this on the forum. Thought i'd let everyone know about some really interesting things said in an interview Leo did with a Spanish YouTube channel focussed on English Football - 'La media Inglesa'. He said some great things about the great escape year and the title season. I love the channel itself because I keep my Spanish sharp whilst listening to discussion of a a topic I love, English Football, so if you're learning or have learnt, i'd recommend subscribing. Anyway, this will be paraphrased as I took notes on things that would be great to share whilst wat

  9. Amongst all the doom and gloom and transfer hype I've just read that Lloyd Dyer is retiring. Obviously we've gone up a few levels since he left but he played a massive part in getting us from League One to the Premier League. Still sad he didn't sign on for a year in the PL, he deserved it but obviously wanted more. Probably not worth a new thread but I just bloody loved Lloyd and I'm pretty sure he loved us.

  12. Hi there, English Celtic fan here. Went to Leicester Uni back in the day so have always looked out for the club and love the city , enjoyed my time there. Thought I would give my two pennies on Brendan . Positives - Great coach. Very good tactician . Good motivator. Turns decent players into very good ones. Develops younger players. Attractive , attacking brand of football. Negatives - Horrendous in the transfer market when signing "finished products" . Stubborn at adapting his style against better sides. Will not play defensively even when the opposition

  13. I get the negativity around Puel, I’m actual not his biggest fan, however I think there is a much boarder narrative to our current situation than just the manager. Winning the League was fantastic, a once in a life time achievement, however whilst the club basked in the glory of its success, it forgot the key to it and killed the Goose that laid the Golden Egg. The league win was forged, in the dark months of 2011 and the return of Nigel Pearson, under him we had suitability and a recruitment strategy, which seem to have a vision for short, medium and long term success.

  17. Back by popular demand, it's time for some Tactical breakdowns, and today I'm looking at the subject of a system we used throughout the game against Aston Villa away, the 442 Diamond. This formation has also been used in a few other games; Sheffield United away and Tottenham at home after 60 minutes, who at the time also played a diamond system. It's a system that is very familiar to Brendan Rodgers who used the system at Liverpool, with his team that almost won the league. So as a bit of background, let's look at that team quickly: Rodgers 442 Diamond at Liverpool

  18. I'm in the US and fell in love with football this summer watching the World Cup. When it ended, I started watching and reading about all the European football I could. I've been enjoying it all, and at the same time slowly narrowing down the options until I find the right team to support. I love good counterattacking play and a good underdog story, so as of a month ago I had narrowed it down to three: Atletico Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, and Leicester City. Then the tragedy at the King Power happened, followed by two weeks of nothing like I have ever seen in the sporting world. I wa

  20. I would like to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for this overwhelming support. Thank you, also, to Leicestershire Police and the Emergency Services. Their fast response on Saturday kept a lot of people safe. Their professionalism and sensitivity since then have made the last few days as bearable as they could be. What happened made me realise how important my dad was to many people all over the world and I’m touched by how many people kept him close to their hearts. I’m extremely proud to have such an extraordinary father. From him, I have received a very big

Claude Puel calls for a Leicester City reality check The City boss discusses the criticism he has received and the speculation over his future, as well as his public image Claude Puel has called for a reality check at Leicester City as he hit back at his critics. City are seventh in the Premier League, but that hasn’t stopped the Frenchman coming under fire from a section of supporters who have become disillusioned with his style of play and the inconsistencies of his young side. Puel has also been the subject of media reports that his job was in doubt on several occasions, a

  24. It didn’t work out for you here Mr. Puel and it’s correct that in a results business you must be sacked. you tinkered too much at times , your style of football would possibly bare fruits in time but in this league time is too precious I personally want to thank you for your efforts and your dignity when we lost Khun Vichai , you led us through a dark dark period In our clubs history I hope my fellow supporters can follow with dignity and wish you well Au Revoir Claude

  25. In the unlikely event that they're still together (Mahrez likely to leave) to continue their glorious partnership with us next season, may I just say it's been an absolute pleasure watching them over play together. At times, they've mesmerised us. They've ridiculed opposition teams with some sensational pieces of skill and teamwork and ability. They've entertained us and turned on the style when it's required. Despite only supporting us since about 6/7 years old, I never thought I'd see someone with skills like Mahrez has play for us and be such a crowd-pleaser with m

  28. LAWRO'S PREDICTION Leicester's problem in these sort of games - away, and against a team much lower than them - is that they have become a scalp. Going to St Mary's and trying to win the game is a very different task to going to somewhere like Anfield, when people are expecting them to be beaten. It is going to be interesting to see how Brendan Rodgers' side deal with it. Prediction: 1-1

  34. Take everything else out of the equation, that’s an incredible achievement. We spent less than 9 other teams this summer. Only one of those teams is currently ahead of us. We’ve not had our first choice 11 available ONCE this season. Let’s just hope we’ve added some bottle this time round!

  35. I'm never one to panic and talk about sacking managers maybe because I've seen it get worse so often but when it looks like you're manager has no faith in the team to beat a bottom 3 team despite outplaying them for 45 mins it makes me lose faith in that manager. I'm still a long way from wanting him out but he's plummeted in my estimation of him. If the team are lacking bottle then for me this is a big reflection of the signals coming from the manager.

  36. I was asked by The Fox fanzine to write an article about the recent tragic events at #lcfc from a personal and professional perspective. It appears in the latest issue of The Fox, which is available now. ----- “Helicopter has crashed outside.” Those words from a colleague flashed up on a text message at 8.40 that fateful Saturday night as journalists were finishing off their work in the press room. This had to be some kind of horrible hoax. A few us dashed around the side of the stadium and saw in the distance a raging inferno, fearsome flame

  39. I'm not sure how much anyone wants a progress report on Josh Knight's loan spell with us (Wycombe), but he is an absolute Ferrari at this level. We had a rough start adjusting to the jump up between L1 and the Championship (7 straight losses to open, though with horrific refereeing decisions taking points off the board four games in a row at one point), but have found our feet a little more with Josh in the side - in the last five, we have won two, drawn two, and lost one. Obviously we are still going to struggle against relegation all season, but Josh is an absolute standout performer, week i
