  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  7. 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

  9. 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

  12. 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.

  13. It's official: OHL has just been promoted to the Belgian 1st division!!! After numerous of court orders and complaint, the League had no other option as to promote both us and Beerschot. Waasland-Beveren is staying up as well. This whole situation could've been avoided if the League used common sense! We finally can start signing new players!

  14. Brighton fan here... You're the best side I've seen at the Amex this season. You won't know this, but we've actually been pretty decent at home and created a lot of chances - but we didn't really get a sniff today. Maddison and Vardy might get the headlines but your defence is rock solid. My missus is a Leicester girl and we're going to have a sneaky £20 on Leicester to win the PL. Good luck from the rainy south coast.

  15. Hi, thanks for your concern, the gentleman was my dad. His life was saved by the prompt actions of the paramedics & the medical team at the stadium. He had to be shocked 3 times with the portable defribrillators they carry, after his heart rhythm went haywire.He had treatment in the medical room at the stadium & was taken to the LRI, before being rushed to Glenfield General. Amazingly today he was sitting up in a chair wired to monitors. They are doing tests to find out what caused his heart to malfunction.The doctors said if it had happened anywhere else but where it did, with the pa

  16. I think as the dust settles on a successful yet disappointing season I think it’s worth acknowledging this mans contribution. He’s not had an easy ride with us, he arrived with such high expectation and never really got the run of games needed and when he has played it was often in a role he wasn’t used to. After things going terribly and fans getting on his back it would have been reasonable for him to seek a move elsewhere. But he stayed professional when others simply wouldn’t, he got his head down and worked his socks off to improve behind the scenes.

  17. An Open Letter From Andy King To my LCFC family, Today it’s been announced that I’ll be leaving the Club and writing this was never going to be easy, even though I know it’s been coming for a while now. After all, all good things come to an end, but what a journey it’s been and I feel nothing but pride and happiness writing this statement. I came as a 16 year old boy in 2005 chasing a dream of playing one game of professional football for Leicester City. I leave a Premier League champion, having played 378 times. I’ve given you my all every time I stepped on the pitch and, in tu

  21. Congratulations on the win, the better side won. I enjoyed the match and have to admit Albion were fortunate not to go in a couple of goals down at HT. We seemed to pick up the tempo for 15-20 minutes in the second half giving me hope that we might just get something from this game but alas no. I think we were our own worst enemies for the first goal getting caught so short at the back but Vardy got the decision to pass to Perez just right as he was left on his own by our chasing defenders. I like JV, always have, but I didn't think he was on it yesterday. For all that though he was a constant

  22. I feel this deserves a discussion on the main forum Norwich / spurs and Newcastle have now all cut the wages of all NON-playing staff a league that generates billions every year cannot and should not be asking near minimum wage staff to take a pay cut while multi millionaire playboys on the playing staff receive bonuses for games that will not or have not been played ! I would like our club to guarantee our non-playing staff will not suffer like this given our excellent financial position, and I’d love to see a league wide boycott of any team that does cut

  23. Last few weeks have been tough to take. The football's bad enough, but a section of out support seem to have embraced a childish right-wing reactionary agenda that is starting to brand our club in a regrettable way. I'd remind these wankers that - like it or not - this is a radical and diverse city, and you lot are a frankly embarrassing stain on it. Why don't you take your Tory posturing somewhere it's wanted, Absolute tossers.

  26. I actually think considering how well you have been playing we did well to stay in the game today Rodgers has come back from Celtic a far more mature and astute manager, and I think you have a lovley mix at the moment, experience with evans and vardy and young players of top quality around that. Only time I have thought he got it wrong was at United when he played with the handbrake and played the name not the line up. Outside of that he has done very well, even today putting Gray on today when perez was tiring to turn the game. My fear for us is if we decide to appoint

  28. Here and Now Nigel Pearson Leicester City, 2008-10; 2011-15 I’m not somebody who shares my emotions a lot. That’s even more the case when it comes to my final season at Leicester City. Because of the way it finished it was a difficult time for us as a family. It’s not the way you’d choose for your time at a club to end, but it’s one of those things you can’t change.

  29. After we secured Top 5 yesterday, I think it’s fitting to remember this quote from Khun Vichai: “I am asking for three years, and we'll be there. We won't take the huge leap to challenge the league's top five clubs immediately. Do we have a chance to beat them? Yes, we have, but I think we need to establish our foothold in the league first and then we think about our next step.” We forget (well, I do) sometimes that the Thai ownership has transformed this club. Today we sit 5th in the best league in the world and it’s the second time we have broken

  34. At the beginning of the season if you were offered top 6 we all would have taken it, if they also said you would play some sublime football and break a record for most goals scored in a game you would have taken it. For Brendan to come in and complete his long term project in 1 year and even before the season has ended is a feat worth applauding. We went toe to toe with Liverpool and Man city before the difference in available transfer money shone to light, which is out of our hands really. We have been without our player of the year and the best right back in the league for a while now

  43. Hello Foxes! Aaron here, a writer from Próxima Jornada, a website specialising in Portuguese football and footballers. I recently conducted an interview with Ricardo Pereira at Leicester’s training complex. In the interview he speaks about Leicester, hopes for the season and what it’s like to work under Brendan Rodgers. Just thought I’d drop it in here in case it was of interest! The link is: https://proximajornada1.wordpress.com/2019/11/14/ricardo-pereira-the-interview/ Good luck for the rest of the season! - Aaron
