  1. What about when we wasted £1m on that non league striker Jamie Vardy who wasn’t good enough for league 1?
  2. I think we played brilliantly for the first 20 mins but never really a sniff afterwards. You can’t sit deep from 25/30 mins and expect to get a point. The players were nakard by 60-65 and it’s inevitable we wernt going to last if we’re so deep. The thing is, the best way to defend is to attack and make them bring men back. Also chasing and concentration levels to defend for 90 mins is tiring, the legs and minds get tired. Best form of defence is to attack. Im a bit frustrated because we struggled from 30-45 and got in at 0-0 at Ht and I think the longer it went on in the 2nd half it was going to come eventually. i think around 60-65 when it was clear we were too deep, Brendan should of changed tactics and actually pushed higher up. People would say ‘we would get hammered 2/3-0 if we go for it’ but We would have more chance than doing what Burnley did the week before and trying to hold out. Just felt like we were always losing playing that way. It was coming from 45-55...still 55-65 and this is when Brendan should use the subs and push out. Everytime we got a sniff in their half we caused problems. We have more forward talent than Burnley and currently Man Utd and feel our best chance to cause upset is throw fire with fire around 60-70 and if we managed to knick the first goal could lock up the parked bus after. Anyway all in all though, we were playing one of the best teams to ever play in PL, and we were in a game right till the final whistle, whilst they were wasting time and sticking it in the corner. so a good effort from our boys. Choudry was fantastic, Maddison is a talent on the ball and we worked brilliantly as a team at times. In particular though, special mention to me for Ricardo, he is an absolutely outstanding wingback. We must keep him!
  3. I agree as well with both above. I just can’t see how people think he’s something special. he has a great engine but he’s poor defensively in general and his final product is 90% terrible and his shooting has no power or technique. Ive said for a while now that he has all the basics there and can improve but atm he’s still far off being complete and vastly over rated imo.
  4. I think it’s about setting a points total rather than a position. If you can improve on points and do your job then it’s all that matters. If teams improve and make more points doesn’t mean we fail if we get lower in the table despite more points. Last season we came 9th which is fine but 47 points, considering our form for last few months was poor. Positon wise, I’d love 7th but rather than setting that as our goal I think points target is better and let that take care of itself. I think we should be aiming for 50-60 range. i find under 40 is strugglers. 40-50 is like very inconsistent nothing team. 50-60 good solid team. Potential with this team and a good amount of points to claim that suggests you were relatively consistent in a tough league. 60-75 very good team. This would be an over achieving range, you never know but realistically would be overachieving. 75-90 Potential premier league winners. id say next season we should aim for 50 points and push for Europe. 14/15 was great, we achieved what we set out for. 15/16 unbelievable enough said. 16/17 CL and survived. People expected more but we were always going to struggle after losing Kante . More pressure on an aging back 4. 17/18 Start of a new team effectivly in transition. Still had Vardy Mahrez so enough to be a good mod table team but Morgan aging by now, Huth and Drinky gone, we were having to start a new team and 2 Qfs in the cups, both very close to getting through, we had a fairly decent season. 18/19 we continued the youth and building for future. Relegation never in doubt, another cup run lost on pens. Deceptively close to a good cup chance(Burton and a struggling Chelsea? We had a chance which is so frustrating). Vichai disaster marred the season but we’ve stayed safe and still in a europa league shot with a new manager that fits. Overall providing we finish ok it would be another relatively successful season despite the trauma. So next season kick on, build the points tally to 50+ range and progress. Europa league would be great and hopefully can build for a shot at that! Maybe would be our best way to get into the CL by winning it. Potential to go for this long term Future is bright atm for Leicester City
  5. 1. Dipping volley vs Liverpool. 2. West Brom away left foot over the shoulder. 3. West Brom away 1/2 with Drinky 15/16..outrageous pace. 4. West Brom away great escape. 5. Spurs at home 17/18. 6. QPR in championship. 7. Chelsea away this season. Cracking finish. 8. Spurs away last season.
  6. In order of my favourite ever KP goals: Vardy vs Liverpool Bruma vs Watford Drinkwater vs Liverpool Mahrez Vs Chelsea Mahrez vs Blackpool King vs Southampton King vs Peterborough
  7. He’s the best player in the history of Leicester bar none. He won the premier league for Christ sake being a crucial part. Not only this he has the 11 games in a row record. He also has an unbelievable record vs the top 6. This is under rated imo, proven by Lakaku’s 1/18 vs top 6 record. He also has scored(since his debut) 74 premier league goals - only Kane, Aguero and Lakaku have scored more!(this also includes 2014/2015 season) I can imagine since 15/16 he would be even higher. He has scored at least 1 home and away goal vs all of the top 6 which is incredible to be honest. Arsenal 3 home 3 away Man Utd 3 home 1 away Chelsea 2 home 1 away Man City 3 home 1 away Spurs 1 home 4 away Liverpool 5 home 1 away All this is achieved around a good but not top level group of players. Aguero Kane and Lakaku are playing in some of the best teams in the world. And other than maybe Lakaku, 2 of the best ever in the premier league era! So this just shows the level of our number 9. On top of this you will see that JV scores a lot of 1 goals in games, so unlike others who hit 3/4 often he doesn’t get as many chances or his team doesn’t dominate as many games so he won’t get as many of those pointless icing on the cake goals that others get. Winners at Chelsea, Everton as well as crucial winners vs Fulham and Brighton too get us effectively over the line to safety this season sums him up. If he reaches 100 premier league goals, it will just top off an incredible career for JV. A premier league legend, 1 of the best finishers, and a title and season that will be talked about for years. He will go down as a premier league legend, let alone a LCFC legend. Legend gets thrown around too easily these days but No doubt in my mind JV is a legend. Get to 100 Jamie and crown off an unbelievable career. To think he only made his prem debut at 27 and only at 28 going on 29 did he establish himself makes you wonder how good he could of been had he been given the chance earlier. #JVLEGEND
  8. VAR should only be used for offside decisions. For example at the weekend that ball from tilimens to Vardy. Clearly onside and the lino was right on this occasion but so often they put the flag up and you look back and it was on! they should play on all time, if lino thinks there’s an offside put flag up but continue to play on and if no goal comes of it then play on but if they do score from it, review it whilst the team in celebrating and if it was offside then disallow it. this way it won’t cause long stoppages and would also be a ‘fact’ (on or off is usually clear and not much differentiate of opinions). Back to var on these subjects, it shouldn’t be involved. Firstly because there would be stopping the game all the time asking ‘is this a free kick’ on every free kick.(or if just pens then that’s not consistent). secondly because the opinions are so different so it will never be correct(I think this is never a penalty) so VAR being used for every little foul/handball will just be ridiculous
  9. Schmicheal Ricardo Maguire Evans chillwell Ndidi Choudry Tillimens Gray Vardy Barnes
  10. The reality is, much as I love Ranieri, it was our squad that won the title mainly. We had, perhaps very fortunately, found a winning formula at the end of 14/15. We picked up 22 points in 9 games which was incredible. so going into the new season we had Mahrez, Vardy, Drinky, huth, albrighton all continuing how we were going(which was CL form). Add to that, probably the best signing in premier league history Ngolo Kante, we had a very under repped team of quality that no one would’ve realised, but looking back now you can see the quality in that team, it wernt a fluke. Ranieri did well to make the press laugh and take pressure off players, Dili ding Dili Dong, the pizza stuff etc . Keeping good team harmony and we did very well negotiating every game after the Arsenal defeat to grind wins and he has to take some credit , but I believe our squad and especially Kante were the huge reasons for our success. Ngolo is just possibly the best player in premier league history...Literally.
  11. I would love to see a midfield 3 of Ndidi Hamza and Tili. Hamza gets around the pitch and hassles, Ndidi strong and tackles and tili breaks forward and supports our front line. think that would be a perfectly balanced and strong midfield and a great future for us. Gray Vardy Barnes pace energy and creativity with that front 6.
  12. Gomes has already scored for us though when he threw Kantes shot into the net in 15/16 😂
  13. I mentioned the Barnes one but don’t remember the 2nd Barnes one you mentioned? evans free header was a half chance at best and isn’t in open play so makes no difference to who we play creativity in open play. Demarai header yeah I forgot that was 2nd half just before Vardy came on? but then we could also ask would Vardy score that? I think he would from his history of heading ability. Free header centre of goal, Vardy scores that imo.

  15. It’s all just talking after one game though. Lots of variables in any given game. You make some good points, but whilst you say how you feel that with Gray we create more space and chances for other people I have to disagree with. As good as we played in the first half, did we really create any good chances bar Barnes one? We looked neat and tidy but no clinical edge what so ever. We never really looked like scoring in general. 2nd half when Vardy was on we had about 3/4 great chances - Vardy set up Barnes - Sitter! our goal. Vardy had another chance half volley. Nacho has a great chance but scuffed it tamely in side netting. there was a few more where we were in great positions etc. so I have to disagree we looked better without Vardy , however the whole game we looked better in general meaning it’s clear about my other point too - regards mendy. There is potential to playing Gray and Vardy as a 2 which would cause defences to be even more scared. We could play 433 attacking style. either way Vardy has to be in for me. We nearly always look better than without him.
