  1. Soccer Saturday is about to start. Brace yourselves for some balanced discussion from the 'experts' about Leicesters treatment of Riyad.
  2. Watford (H) post-match thread (2-0 home win)

    To come away from that match and be negative is just strange. I guess that is just a reflection of people's personalities. Personally I was a little frustrated for parts of that match. First half was a little pedestrian and second half, we were wasteful after a number of opportunities to kill the came off but the positives out away the negatives by such a long way. We we have genuine quality in every department. The likes of Amartey and Dragovic came in and did an excellent job. We can certainly look for areas of improvement but to moan about that performance (and the majority of performances under Puel) is odd. As some have already said, if you've watched city for any length of time you must appreciate the football we are currently watching.
  3. Chilwell is amazing

    I’m not suggesting he is as good as Bale or ever will be but he has all the attributes to be a very successful premier league footballer, hopefully for us.
  4. Chilwell is amazing

    There really has been some ridiculous criticism of Chilwell. I've followed his career from his academy days (as he played in the same academy side as my friends son) and he was head and shoulders above anyone else at that level. Anyone with even a modicum of football intelligence can see he is a Roll's Royce of a player. The way he glides across the pitch reminds me very much of Gareth Bale and his ability to maintain his pace while running with the ball. Still got got things to learn? Definitely but I believe he will be left back for England one day.
  5. Chelsea Post Match 0-0

    Really good performance. Dominating Chelsea’s midfield is a sign we are on the right track. I think we can all agree that I our progression under Puel continues (well nearly all).
  6. Chelsea (A) pre-match

    I give us half a chance today. Got a fiver on at 18-1 for Leicester win and both teams to score so it may be more blind hope than realistic expectation. We do have a chance though, don't we? Please somebody tell me have at least a chance of winning.
  7. Great article! Anyone who reads that and writes Matty James off hasn't read it properly. It may be that he never establishes himself as a top class prem player but you get the feeling he won't leave anything on the pitch. Go on Matty!!
  8. Change in Style?

    I think we do need to evolve and have the capability to control games when winning. Most important thing for for me is to get back to consistently high pressing, especially early on. I always feel we are going to play well when we are winning the ball back in the oppositions defensive third. We we actually did this well against Man Utd for 25-30 minutes and then got pinned back. I guess we start to run out of steam. Control of the football when we have it would certainly help a high press for 90 minutes.
  9. Premier League, 2017-2018 Season Thread

    Imagine going down like that in local football. You would get abuse from your own teammates, let alone the opposition.
  10. Riyad Mahrez - The great Artist

    Exactly right. Expecting someone like Mahrez to 'pull his weight' is an old school English mentality. The people who moan about Riyad are the same ones who shout "get it forward" when our defence dare to pass it across the back three or four times.
  11. I am amazed at the number of doubters. What more could the man do to deserve a chance? Anyone with a modicum of common sense could see that the slow end to the season was a combination of factors such as resting players before cl games or playing sides who are still a level above us, not to mention some poor reffing decisions. Obviously there is some risk but there would be with literally any manager.
  12. Great news!! Best man for the job.
  13. Harvey Barnes

    Having spoken to someone who works in and around the first team about this lad, he assures me that he has everything needed to be a top class footballer. He is technically superb and is now becoming physically strong, however it is his attitude that sets him apart from some of the others knocking on the door of the first team. Brilliant head on his shoulders, humble and learns very quickly. Compare him to Lawrence, who is clearly gifted but apparently thinks a little too much of himself. Trying to not get too carried away but I believe we have a serious footballer. Whether or not he plays regularly this season will obviously depend on a number of factors such as player signings, manager in charge, formation, etc.
  14. Mahrez has asked to leave

    Wonderful player. The best I've seen in 35 years of watching Leicester. Even though performances have dropped this season, I would argue nearly everything good in an attacking sense, comes through him. I fear we will never see his like again here. I do have some knowledge of his situation and am led to believe he is desperate to live in London.
  15. Everton post match 2-4

    Fully accept making changes with Wednesday in mind but as others have said, really showed our squad depth is poor considering the money spent. No right back cover for Simpson, no quality cover in midfield (King and Mendy not good enough). But given this, I was annoyed by our performance. Kind of understandable to have one eye on Wednesday and players intensity clearly wasn't 100% but what bemused was our decision making. Frankly bizarre at times. Drinkwater, possibly being the biggest culprit. I like Danny but his form is worrying. Benny obviously poor today but I'm not too worried. I think he is capable of playing well on Wednesday. Last thing to to add is my dislike for Everton fans. Horrible! They actually boo more than they cheer. What a depressing place it must be most of the season. Anyway, confident we will be back at it on Wednesday.
