    Awww, and here I was hoping to mine reams of Reddit karma when it turned out Mahrez was in the squad after all. Let's dick 'em.

    Wellp, that's blown it.
  3. Premier League, 2017-2018 Season Thread

    This is such a Spursy game. Southampton really are dogsh1t at present, so you can just see them winning this and a meltdown on the Fighting Genital afterwards.
  4. The OH Leuven Thread

    Massive win for OHL, that. Casagolda scored their goal when we went over, for what it's worth.

    How did the Beeb give Mahrez MOTM?!? Did they just get Garth Crooks to look at the scoresheet again?

    My nan has diabetes, and I find the Diabaté stuff funny. Stop being so sour, victory is sweet, sugar. Way ahead of ya, duck.

    Right, our rise to seventh on the back of sinking a well-documented bogey team of ours has me dreaming of my ultimate scenario for the season... Last game of the season, after a great run and finally breaking our hoodoo against both Arsenal and Bournemouth in the process, we beat Twattingham Squatterspurs 0-1 at the national stadium with 20% posession to nick fourth and sneak into the Champions League. Arsenal proceed to win their final game against Huddersfield and leapfrog them into fifth. Meanwhile, Bristol City have somehow won the League Cup and a random team like Swansea win the FA Cup, leaving the Spuds with nothing at the season's end. If Carlsberg did seasons. If that's too farfetched for some, assume a top 4 winner of the League Cup, replace fourth with fifth and move everybody else down a place, so Spuds still get fuch all. Am I also right in thinking that fifth gets a UCL playoff if an English team wins it?
  9. Watford (H) post-match thread (2-0 home win)

    What an incredibly frustrating game that was creation wise! Our final ball was incredibly poor, and the amount of time their offside trap caught us out was astounding. If their final third play wasn't even worse than ours we could have been sent home with our tails between our legs there. Mahrez was heavily to blame for that lack of a creative "spark" today - he had a shocker apart from his goal for me. Gave the ball away so many times I lost count, floated out of position loads of times leaving their left wing free to counter, constantly whinging and shrugging and his final ball was lacking. Silva did in 5 minutes what he failed to do all game - lucky for him, he was the beneficiary! I'm not a Mahrez hater by any stretch, but today he could so easily have cost us the game. That being said, excellent performances from Ndidi and James for me. The latter deserves an especial shout out for his comeback - his body balance is superb - hardly ever loses the ball and if he goes to ground, you know it's either a foul or a bloody good tackle. Wilfred needs no explanation - he's become a beast this season. Back four are quality - exciting times given how young they all are. Amartey deserves credit - if anybody suggested this time last year that he was anything approaching a competent right back, they'd have been laughed off this forum, but Simpson now faces a challenge to get his place back! Vards, Marc and Okazaki the usual industrious displays. Jamie took his peno very well - nice to see him place one (and not put it wide!) Shoutout to Lee Probert and his linesmen, who were all rubbish. Probert was A) inconsistent as fuch for both teams and B) constantly giving fouls yet didn't give a card out all game - thought he'd lost control of it personally and was scared to dish any out. The linesmen (especially the old fart in front of us in L1) were about 3 yards behind the play all game, which after Nachoman's VAR goal only served to increase my scepticism at every offside decision! Rubbish officiating all round. ANYWAY, overall I'm happy with that as much as everything else I've said would suggest otherwise.
  10. Chelsea (A) pre-match

    To be honest, on that showing I'd be delighted if they did. Chelsea have looked absolutely toothless in midfield their last two matches, both with Drinkwater in the starting XI. He's been getting chances to show them why he should be in their first team, and he's done next to nothing aside from crocking Wilshere tonight to hopefully get himself on the plane. Friendly reminder that selling Danny got us the funds to buy Iborra and (almost) Silva as well.
  11. Andy King

    Sorry to go against the grain here, but King is way too good a player for that shower of a squad. He'd only regress further languishing at the bottom of the Championship, though I wouldn't be averse to him going on loan to a Championship team higher up the table if he wants to.

    That's well racist of Mahrez to white up for his after-game photo.
  13. Huddersfield (H) Post Match Thread 3 - 0

    Meh, they're the same people who were slating Puel for picking King at Southampton, and we all saw what happened there. We're a good football team and everybody in that squad can do a job on their day. It's inevitable that some will leave in the next transfer window or two, but this is the first time in years that we've had genuine strength in depth. That we've got a player in James (who probably aped Drinkwater in our first season up) fit to play, looking perfectly capable when doing so and yet probably fifth choice in midfield behind Ndidi, Iborra, Silva and King speaks volumes of how quickly we've managed to turn around a serious shortfall and make it a position of strength. I get the feeling he'll go out on loan somewhere to get up to speed again, but on today's showing he's still on King's level (i.e. competent squad player) for me. The only position that needs strengthening is right back - Simmo is injured and, though Amartey has slotted in reasonably well, it's not his position, though admittedly it's preferable to him being behind James in the pecking order for midfield I mentioned earlier. We're either going to have to go 3-5-2 to cater for our bloated midfield and poor fullback options, or find somebody in the window. Then again, given Puel's track record, who is at right back for the academy and are they any good? Plenty to mull over. UTF.

    I still cannot fathom how Albrighton has never had an England call-up. Apart from a couple of games this season and the doldrums of Claudio's last days, he's been on fire for three years now, with a range of crosses to make Steve Guppy blush. Even when we've been crap, he's popped up with assist after assist. Surely it's time for Southgate to take a punt. SURELY?

    Let's take a moment to spare a thought for the poor moderators of the LCFC Facebook page right now. The comments will be an absolute minefield of Algerians after this.
