    Up next.. SPURS (H).

    Assuming that Vardy is still out and at least one of Maguire and Evans are back:

    Fulham 1 - 1 Leicester Post Match Thread

    Such a weird season. We are 1 point off 6th and into the Quarters of the cup and yet as time goes on I am reservations and concerns about Puel are being more and more reaffirmed. I don't think he is getting anywhere near the full potential out of this team and I'm really struggling to convince myself that he ever will.

    Kelechi Iheanacho / Nacho Man

    You can look at it two ways. 1) Iheanacho is crap or 2) instead of Vardy actually struggling this season, maybe is actually making a good fist out of playing in this system?

    Lack of creativity under Puel

    That's a good point. Is this team man-for-man better at keeping possession than last season, or the season before? We've lost Mahrez but gained Maddison, so that probably cancels each other out. We now have Ricardo and Chilwell at full backs, who are undoubtedly better going forward, but are they any better at keeping possession than Simpson or Fuchs? For me this squad is still much more suited to counter-attacking. Maybe not to the level that we used to, but we've gone too far the other way and as a result we aren't reaching anywhere near our potential.

    Saturday 10th November- Walk for Vichai

    I'm sure I did see a route somewhere on social media. It seemed to leave Jubilee Square, cut through Castle Park, then follow the river down to Raw Dykes. Maybe it has changed though, as if there is going to be 20,000 people, they will need roads closed rather than being able to use the footpath along the river.
  6. ...but that's not how Dorsett, Stringer, Tanner etc say it. They say See-what-hana-prab-ha. Lineker said See-va-too-na-pra-pa which seems very different.
  7. I'm so confused about how to pronounce Vichai's surname. Just when I think I have it nailed (See-what-hana-prab-ha), Lineker pronounces it totally differently on Match of the Day.

  9. He’s not up to it. We may paper over cracks for a few more weeks but I just can not see him being a success here. I want something to get excited about and watching Leicester at the minute is dull and frustrating.

    He has had two transfer windows and money to spend. You can’t use that tired old excuse anymore.

    Can I have some of what you are on? We are not creative and these are his players.

    I was behind him and everyone I saw clearly he was spot on.
  13. Jardim won't come here. He's a candidate, and probably the most sensible candidate, for the Man Utd job. I suspect that these links are agent talk to try and force Utd's hand.

    Arsenal Post Match

    At half-time I was excited. We were finally playing 3-5-2 and we were finally playing with bravery, positivity and intensity. We could have easily been comfortably ahead by the interval. At full-time all that good feeling has been blown to pieces. I'm getting so tired of the negative approach that this manager errs towards. At half time we had been the better team by taking the game to Arsenal. Not by sitting deep and hitting them on the counter. Arsenal had 3 players on yellow cards, including their ancient full back and one of their central defenders. We hadn't won at Arsenal in the Premier League. We know our defence is prone to error and isn't the most composed. So what does he do? He shuts up shop. Incredibly deep line, Vardy and Iheanacho basically playing as wide midfielders when Arsenal have the ball and effectively a 5-5 formation. Madness. Vardy was so deep that there was no counter attacking outlet when we won the ball, which meant the ball kept coming back at us and it was only a matter of time before Arsenal carved us open, which they did with ease. We somehow managed to be deep and compact, yet still frighteningly open. Unfortunately it's another chapter in the increasingly lengthly book of baffling Claude Puel tactical decisions.

    New Tactics module is in Touch. Training has carried across some of the new stuff from FM, but is still the same depth. Scouting is pretty much unchanged in Touch this year.
