  1. 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

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  5. 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. 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!

  13. 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.

  14. 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

  15. 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!

  19. 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.

  20. 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. Forget what happened today in the match. The best news this season is that FINALLY Jamie Vardy wins the Premier League Golden Boot! Fitting that he does it in the season he gets the 100 PL goals too. Well done Vardy! Fully deserved!

  24. 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

  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.

  32. 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. Listening to Kasper Effing and jeffing all game was a joy to behold tonight. Non stop shouting, encouraging and moaning at the ref. I know he has his faults but for me he's worth his weight in gold to us as a leader of men. He'll leave a huge void and big gloves to fill when he eventually leaves . Long live our Viking warrior.

  39. 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
