  1. West Brom (H) Match Thread

    Shakespeare has 45 minutes to save his job and possibly his management career.
  2. Is Shakespeare the right man for the job?

    My fear now is we can easily slide into the short-termism that has completely destroyed Sunderland. Appointments made to stave off relegation, a slew of poor big money signings with each new regime, massive increases in wage bills and a poisonous dressing room culture that effectively decides squad selection. It's not far-fetched and something to be very weary of once Shakespeare is sacked.
  3. Is Shakespeare the right man for the job?

    We're still trying to play a rapid, fast counter attacking style no different from 2-3 years ago. During which time bodies have grown older and more weary. And of course opposition teams have evolved far faster than we have meaning our tactics look even more basic than they did a few seasons ago. I'm not sure why we have no 'plan B' in terms of trying to calm games down - at the moment we seem to default to playing deeper and deeper as the game progresses, much like we did under Ranieri last season. The opening has been tough but I fear it will take several games against 'lesser' opposition to break free of the defensive/deep mindset which will inevitably sap confidence. I'm not so sure we'll get much from the next 3 games. I'm hoping I'm very wrong.
  4. Actually that's a very very important point hadn't considered that.
  5. My synopsis of this years Squad

    I'm reality that's a 4-5-1 which is where we've often struggled. I'm never quite sure what formation we play as invariably much of last season was spent hoofing it.
  6. It's been clear for a long while now there's no strategy/philosophy guiding the team anymore. Ranieri tried to instil one and failed miserably with almost exactly the same 11. The rest of the season is going to be quite long, and embarrassing by the looks of it.
  7. Exactly the same as the performance against Luton and Milton Keynes. The malaise runs deep...
  8. MK Dons.. Friendly.. Tonight.

    I put off making my dinner for this.
  9. MK Dons.. Friendly.. Tonight.

    Reminding me of last season's pre-season. Not boding well...
  10. LCFC U21 / Development Squad 2016/17

    I think it's fairly clear our Academy whilst not quite a failure, has not been a success by any relevant measure in the past decade at least. I felt Pearson recognised it as such hence hoovering up and willing to take risks with youngsters from elsewhere. I wonder if during the summer the board will now be looking to appoint a manager to overhaul the entire club apparatus to match the club's new found status, along with physical infrastructure changes to cement last season's gains.
  11. Brexit Discussion Thread.

    As a 'remainer' I haven't met a single person who wants this to be a disaster. What is a disaster is selling the deal on the back of dubious information - lies. I'm sure we'll be 'fine' in the long term but no one knows what long-term means and there's no definition for 'fine' either. We're heading into the future with so many unknowns. Any questioning of these unknowns is immediately shot down with accusations of treachery and lacking faith in blighty. It's an absurd situation to be in and one entirely created from an unrelated issue - immigration.
  12. Brexit Discussion Thread.

    Fully expecting a crazy 2 years of 'developing country' casino style financial growth followed by a giant depression/crash when the UK actually leaves the EU officially and the Scotland referendum looks likely to head for a split. This is going to be Pepsi Max at Blackpool style of a rollercoaster followed by the kind of headache the morning after that Blackpool also offers.
  13. There is something very naive about these contracts. If Southampton are able to demand £50million I don't see how Leicester's negotiators still believe we're in League 1

    It would be sad to see him leave but he's been with us for a fair few seasons and who could begrudge a person reaching the pinnacle in their field. If he is leaving i really hope it is to someone like Barca.
  15. A thought on Ranieri's reign

    Please don't try and re-write history. Poor form.
