  1. I’m a fan of Barnes, We all know he should of scored more than he has given the chances he has had, he will improve in this area no doubt. just a question to the guys doubting his ability/level or worth to the team, would you prefer Barnes to keep getting into the positions to score more or effectively stay out wide and not try and contribute with goals? Barnes has realistically played one season in the premier and has scored 5 goals in 42 premier appearances. The legend that is Jamie Vardy only scored 5 goals in 34 appearances in his first premier season. I know they play in different positions but give the lad time to develop that side of his game.
  2. No I didn’t miss the first half mate, I just know what the word abysmal means, that’s why that post confused me.
  3. Soyuncu ohhh ohh soyuncu ohhh ohh he feeds the goats and sheep he’ll leave you in a heap Soyuncu ohhh ohh soyuncu ohhh ohh he fetches the chickens eggs he’ll break your f***ing legs 😂😂
  4. I have to disagree with you on this mate, there are probably thousands still trying to get to see a Leicester premier league game, let alone a season ticket. The amount of people in Leicestershire isn’t really relevant, how many Man Utd season ticket holders don’t live in Manchester for example. people do move away from Leicestershire but they are still season ticket holders. I for one can’t wait to be able to purchase a season ticket for me, my mrs and young son. i was going to all the city home games for 30 years up until a few years ago and I can’t wait to be going again regularly.
  5. His energy and pressing is incredible and his passing was crisp and confident today.
  6. Harvey Barnes would be better if chillwell gave him the ball sooner than when he’s got two players on him, chilly needs to give him the ball early and go on the overlap and allow Barnes to cut inside more.
  7. The perception from within the club and outside, is that of a club now looking to compete in the top 4. mahrez is a different case, we was a mid table club without a philosophy and changing managers at the drop of a hat, when he wanted out. it took him ages to get his wish, and back then our squad couldn’t attract players like tielemans or praet, it’s the complete opposite now as we are an attractive club with big ambitions and a brilliant manager.
  8. All this is irrelevant, we won’t sell James Maddison in January or the summer. Even then he will not be cheap so there are only a few clubs in the world who could afford our “don’t want to sell” valuation we have a project that the manager has committed long term to, and we are on the cusp of being a regular top 6 club, that is run fantastically well. The times are changing for the historically big clubs in England.
  9. Barnes was very good tonight, he may not be clinical in his finishing currently but his link up play and wide play is still underrated by people.
  10. Brilliant tonight, looked quicker than last season too, played excellent at left centre back when JJ came on.
  11. Assured, composed and his reading of the game and his positional requirements was excellent.
  12. He’s still relatively inexperienced in club football (never been a regular starter) and is still a young player. all inexperienced players, especially young players need regular games and confidence from their manager. he has the ability as shown at Man City and with us, we just need to remember how difficult it is at our club for him, knowing that his main competitor for the position he plays is always going to play and for the full game. well done Kel, great cameo performance.
  13. I think Ayoze has similar qualities to what Riyad had for us, ok he is not as good a winger but he is playing as a wide forward. although riyad has a great first touch, I have seen on many occasions Ayoze pulling the ball down out of the sky with an excellent touch. He is also a great outlet for kaspar if we want to counter quickly due to this. they both have similar pace and push the opposition full backs back. Ayoze is harder working by a mile. who is the better player? Riyad of course, but Ayoze is a better fit for our style of play nowadays.
  14. I think Matty James is a great role model and ambassador of our club. you never hear a bad word about him, is always representing the club in a positive light ( through the tragedy of our late great vichai), always battling back from injuries and working hard to get back fit. i think the contract was a reward by the club for his part in what we are and where we are today.
  15. The way we now play, will enable him to play another 3 years at least before his game time or games will need to reduce. for me,he is now one of the most complete forwards in the premiership.
