  1. Puel

    The reason he changed formation is because Man City had acres of space on their left and our right, and Albrighton was struggling. Diabate was filling in at times. He clearly thought it needed to be addressed - Puel can't be blamed for some atrocious distribution from Kasper.
  2. Puel

    FFS Puel has done really well, we are still 8th and in the cup. He's hardly had any time and these aren't even his players. His one signing looks like an absolute bargain. Let's be honest we've dominated games such as Chelsea and Swansea, Puel can't legislate for so many missed opportunities. Give him time, I'm not sure what our fans expect.
  3. Personally I think this whole episode is extremely healthy for football and sets a good example. The club has invested an unbelievable amount in Riyad, not just in wages but in terms of development. Would he have been picked up by another club? Maybe. But the facts are Riyad has had an amazing few years and has been paid extremely well during that period. He signed a contract and as such Leicester have every right to state a fee and be quite firm on that fee. Too often players try to force a move and it's completely unacceptable. I'm pleased that we have demonstrated that you don't have to be bullied by the so-called bigger clubs. If you find a player and invest in his development it's absolutely your right as the selling club to be clear about the fee you want. If the player does not want to be in that position, the simple answer is don't sign the agreement. Frankly the sob story is disgraceful - this is a player who has been plucked from obscurity and become a PL star. Yes he has a right to better himself, yes he has right to want to play at a higher level but only if it works for all parties. A wider point is that I believe we are his best level - a talent no doubt but not in the same league as KDB, Silva or even sterling. Would end up a bit part player.
  4. City 5-1 The Posh FA Cup 4 Round Post Match Thread

    I do love a bit of foxestalk hyperbole. Pre match - well that's us out, crap line up, benny is awful. Post match - our strength in depth is amazing and we have discovered the next Messi. Seriouslt though fair play to Diabate. I've seen a few saying Silva was poor. I thought he was excellent - buzzed about, always available and played some lovely passes. He made a few errors but on one he recovered very well and you can clearly see him saying give me a shout! only downside was gray - on the ball a lot, bags of technical ability but awful decision making. That needs to improve and almost became more concerned with scoring than making the right calls.
  5. Peterborough Away FA Cup Match Thread

    That's a good side with a blend of youth and experience. Benny is not that bad - rash no doubt but he's a solid CB and did well against fleet wood. A front 4 with pace and skill backed up by two CM with a wealth of European experience. Comfortable win I think.

    Mate you do realise that I was joking about the clear and obvious typo only. Secondly, Brighton has an enormous gay community which is a positive thing and a fact! Not an insult or prejudice. Apologres if anyone was offended.
  7. Ulloa - To Brighton on loan (Page 8)

    Well it is Brighton
  8. Watford (H) post-match thread (2-0 home win)

    Agree! Comfortable on the ball as well
  9. Watford (H) post-match thread (2-0 home win)

    Great performance but wasted some good positions. Shout out to Amartey who I thought played really well.
  10. Chelsea Post Match 0-0

    Agree, he gave yellow cards out unfairly - a few where it was the first foul.
  11. Chelsea Post Match 0-0

    Superb today. Best first half I've seen in ages! Red was very harsh! Player comes from behind chilwell, he's going for the ball.
  12. Matty James

    Played really well today - pleased for him
  13. Ulloa - To Brighton on loan (Page 8)

    Couldn't agree more. It might be time to move on, that time comes for all players. But he's scored some big goals for Leicester and stepped in when Vardy got suspended the year we won the league. Deserves a lot more respect.
  14. Fleetwood Town (A) pre-match

    Have a feeling Musa will start this one. Hamer Chilwell Dragovic Maguire Amartey Musa Silva James Gray Slimani Nacho 442
  15. What do people expect?

    Anyone who wants Puel out is frankly a) an idiot b) a very short memory or can't have supported Leicester very long c) no real understanding of football. I was going to write a big post in defence of Puel but I don't think it's needed - clearly doing a good job and needs a few seasons to develop to squad.
