  1. Only two wins in 10. What has gone wrong?

    We are currently second in Premier League tier 2. However, we could easily be many places below come May. We simply compete within that, ignore places 1-6 other than you can pick up the odd bonus points there.
  2. Man City Away Match Thread

    Formation change problem not Silva going off. Iborra should have replaced him after 55 if Silva continued to be ineffectual as he was. The shape changing wasn't necessary and holding out for first 10-15 was. We're too easily beaten, teams don't have to work too hard to score. That's the most worrying aspect for me.
  3. Man City Away Match Thread

    On paper, sensible approach to this one. Fingers crossed. COYB!
  4. Swansea City (h) Post-Match 1-1

    Silva poor, Gray poor, nacho poor. Lacking, cracks will be papered but not good enough
  5. Is Demarai Gray an enigma?

    Needs a new challenge. Not up to standard we require sadly. Someone in Prem would definitely snap him up tho.
  6. Swansea City (H) Pre Match Thread

    I would start Diabate, 2 effective shifts from him now. Puel already showing age is not a barrier. Need to be positive and shake off this Mahrez cloud. Swans will be up for this given recent good form.
  7. Diabaté Signs

    Looks better than Gray.
  8. is reaching 4th/5th possible ?

    If anyone see's it any differently I'd love to know what was expected!
  9. is reaching 4th/5th possible ?

    No chance and rightly so. Puel remit was to restore confidence, improve results and develop playing style. So far so Good.
  10. Slimani

    Slimani is incredibly limited as a footballer. He's uncomfortable on the ball and even against Fleetwood looked second best too many times. Makes me wince each time you think of what we paid - criminal.
  11. RIP FA Cup

    If Premier League teams were given the option of competing in domestic cup competitions, how many would bother?
  12. FA Cup 2017-18

    Thought the young lad Brereton looked a Vardy replacement in the making. Quick, deceptively strong, great runs and a nuisance. Knew he was starting to catch bigger clubs attention, after that will certainly have caught a few more. We don't seem to have a vardy-esque type replacement, do much worse than slapping a wedge down for this lad.
  13. 'Plaudits for our atmosphere' ?! Not any more

    Have to say the home support is an absolute shambles. L1 might as well disperse and mix in with the rest of us. They've become an apologetic noise based on individuals who appear terrified those around won't join in so your left with this half hearted 'hum' which plays in to the away fans hands. We are bossed by all opposing support with Huddersfield ridiculing us throughout. We only come alive once we've scored and often then it's for 30 seconds after. Couple of friends (non supporters) who have been down this year have commented "your lot just smack those clappers and sit in silence?!". Harsh and sadly true - never would have imagined that from filbo days. Away ends are cringeworthy with small pockets of miss timed efforts. The song book is ridiculously limited, literally all visiting support embarrasses us with catchy different songs for players or management. We nick the odd chant and live off it for 3 seasons....
  14. Iheanacho

    Dreadful signing. Looks disinterested and does not fit our game. We've spunked another 20+m on wasted strikers again. Criminal when you add in Musa and Slim. How can LCFC afford to blow £60m so easily??
  15. West Ham post match 1-1

    Dreadful. Another garbage performance served up. Owners have a lot to answer for, how can premier league winners be so bad so quickly??
