  1. Terrible team selection and a terrible performance.
  2. On our day we are really good side, but that is the problem. we are a soft side to play against and if the opposition score the first goal it’s pretty much shut up shop against us because we are not direct or penetrative enough. we must have the most inconsistent player performances in the league. Yes not having a full strength side to pick from doesn’t help.
  3. I think collymore is right, the scouts have become lazy and prejudiced at the level that they watch, for example most academy or pre academy scouts watch only level 1/ level 2 games to identify talent. yes their are skill camps etc or recommendations, but at the younger age groups, the parents have influence in where their child plays and at what level. I believe pro clubs should have several teams in each age groups, to support the development of a larger base of players, this would only increase the standard of grassroots football. I know there is a cost t
  4. Thought he looked good last night in his brief time playing, surprising to see how well he played in that 10 role and thought he worked hard out of possession too. Give him 4-6 weeks more adjusting to his teammates, tactics, culture and English football, and I can see him becoming a very important player for us.
  5. He was excellent today considering how little competitive football at this level that he has played in the last 2 years. looks good in a back 3 but would he be as comfortable as a 2 pairing cb, hope so.
  6. 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.
  7. No I didn’t miss the first half mate, I just know what the word abysmal means, that’s why that post confused me.
  8. 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 😂😂
  9. 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
  10. His energy and pressing is incredible and his passing was crisp and confident today.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
