  1. I just don't think it's outrageous to suggest that most players, when scoring on their debut, wouldn't expend the effort to make a dig at their old club. Think Demarai is more the exception than the rule in that case. Anyway, like you say it's no use getting riled up about it, was more just an amusing observation than anything else.
  2. I don't think anyone has a problem with him celebrating a goal whatsoever. However, I don't think a celebration that's supposed to be a slight on his time here (if 'shackles off' is in fact what he's trying to say) backs up this suggestion of him as being ultra professional and humble, that's all. I hope he continues to get goals but I don't think we'll miss him in the slightest.
  3. Well you're less ignorant than me because I didn't know they were. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Age_fraud_in_association_football A cursory glance at this, however, suggests that the NFF have a bit of a chequered past so that might have something to do with it.
  4. Have a vague recollection of a Nigerian poster on here saying that it was highly unlikely that Wilf is actually as young as he claims to be and that he's probably in his late twenties at this point. Hard to know how much to take from that alone but coupled with this report from 2013, which lists him among a number of players who failed an age test, I don't think we should be surprised if he declines slightly earlier than expected. Will have to enjoy his performances in the meantime though because he's absolutely crucial to our success at the moment.
  5. I don't want to scapegoat him but it's incorrect to say there was 'nothing wrong' with his performance. In the first half he made a terrible backpass that put them in on goal and if Amartey hadn't kept his head so well we could easily have gone one down.
  6. As soon as Iheanacho grabbed the ball for the penalty it was like watching a film you've seen too many times. I'm thoroughly Brendan in but it really is concerning that our games can feel so predictable and fatalistic.
  7. What? They paid £70m for a keeper who can barely catch a ball. I suppose you could argue that Kepa has 'substantial talent' but that is not the same as being world class, far from it. How any Leicester fan can think that a transfer fee accurately determines a player's pedigree after we sold Harry Maguire for £80m+ is absolutely beyond me
  8. One of the best full backs in the world was by far and away the weakest player in Leicester City's backline? What does that mean for the others then? Is Ricardo better than Cafu? It's fair to say that he received some undue criticism while he was here but we don't need to go the other way with this kind of ridiculous revisionism.
  9. Actually when Mahrez first arrived he displaced Lloyd Dyer from the left wing pretty quickly. Knockaert was playing on the other side. You're right though that in our first premiership season Mahrez spent a fair amount of time on the bench, which iirc was mostly due to a lack of defensive contribution at a time when we were on the back foot in almost every game. Regarding Under, are there seriously people that don't like what they see? Our only wide player that provides a sense of anticipation when they get the ball.
  10. Wouldn't they have to buy out his contract? He's on obscene money.
  11. Good point haha Still remember their fans declaring it a travesty in 2016 that 'the best team in the league' were going to finish second. Then they finished third.
  12. Yes, that World Cup really highlighted the contrast between undignified foreign cheating and the good honest English integrity...
  13. Hope the moronic comparisons to Ghezzal have been put to bed now.
  14. Absolutely top drawer. Credit to Leeds they worked their socks off but could still only manage a single (and very fortunate) goal against our injury ravaged defence. Speaking of which, the more I see of Fofana, the more I'm reminded of the Kante signing. Looks like he could be, in the genuine sense of the term, world class. Hope Bielsa and Co enjoy their tear soaked hovis.
