  5. What is the point of Matty James?

    The best midfielder we've ever had didn't score or set up goals, probably not the best line of argument.
  6. You're generally being a good human being if Dennis Wise doesn't agree with you.
  7. Can't agree with Dennis on this one, surely Riyad should try to get the club liquidated for this glaring injustice?

    But why would they bother doing that, it has no bearing on whether or not it's a foul? Haven't seen the incident so maybe missing something, but struggling to see why that would be relevant.

  13. Steve Walsh

    That's not all the good signings. Anthony Knockaert, Lloyd Dyer, Jack Hobbs, Bruno Berner, I could go on, we regularly put together teams that were at the very least good enough for our aspirations at the time when Walsh was here. Yes we made some poor expensive signings (and some others that weren't at all poor - Shinki Okazaki was one of the most expensive signings we'd made in our history at the time and he's been a fantastic signing). Ulloa did exactly what he was signed for, played a significant part in helping us stay in the Premier League (and you know, then helped us win the Premier League). We consistently improved the quality of our team and consistently improved our league position while he was at the club, we'll make a huge overall profit on the signings we brought in under Steve Walsh even when you take into account the poorer expensive signings. It looks good because his track record was very very good. Every side makes bad signings, very few make quite as many good to ridiculous signings as we made in the period of time Steve Walsh was at the club

    Who's record is flawless? Our signings while Steve Walsh was at the club were pretty incredible. Vardy, Mahrez, Kante all obviously superb. We signed Marc Albrighton, Danny Simpson, Wes Morgan, Robert Huth, Christian Fuchs, Demarai Gray, Shinji Okazaki, Danny Drinkwater and Matty James for around £20m combined or so didn't we? Is that not absolutely incredible value given their contributions? That's not a 'lower Prem level' team we built while he was at the club, it's a team that won the Premier League. Selling either of Kante or Drinkwater covered the cost of all of those signings, many of whom are still doing a very good job for us in the top half of the Premier League. Heck a fair few of the signings or players we brought in on loan who didn't do a great job for us have gone on to prove they're at the very least good talents, Harry Kane, Jesse Lingard, Michael Keane, Andrej Kramaric. 'By no means flawless' sure, but probably as close to flawless as you'll realistically get.
  15. It's surely a good thing whenever Jon Moss has less control?
