    Leo Says Farewell

    Such an important player for us who scored some really important goals. That penalty against West Ham was a kick with so much pressure. The tension in the stadium was almost unbearable given how the game had gone. Yet he was the coolest guy there and in some ways summed up the pro that he was - there when you needed him, gave his best and carried an honest dependability with him. He smashed it in and if I'm honest, that was probably the moment I really started to believe. I have nothing but love for our no 23 and wouldn't hesitate to give him a standing ovation if he ever came back to say hi.

    Man Utd and the mind games starting again.

    Utd (Mourinho) do this all the time. I don't think it's as effective now as it once was. Mourinho will often single out one of the top players of an upcoming match and compliment them about how good they are, how they are players that he admires, how they are the type of player that he would really love to manage and how they would improve any squad they joined. I remember Mourinho doing exactly this in our title winning season with Danny Drinkwater, but he does it frequently with any half decent team. it's like water off a duck's back now.

    Classic Man Utd/Mourinho mind games sponsored by Sky Sports News. Since the world cup... Man Utd: Harry, we'd really you to come play for us, we'll give Leicester 65m - you're worth it. Leicester: He's not for sale, so don't even ask. Man Utd: Well obviously you don't want to sell him, we're not really even that interested. We'd rather have Mina or Alderweireld, they are cheaper and more betterer. Less than a week before Man Utd v Leicester... Man Utd: Harry, you know that we said that we wanted you and then we said we didn't, well actually we do. In fact, we like you so much we'll tell some Sky Sports sources that we'll put in a world record bid. FoxesTalk: Sell. No, don't sell. No, part exchange with one of their players who would be happy to take a pay cut and not have a chance of Champions League football. No, wait! Don't sell at any price. Actually yes, get rid, he's not that good anyway and then buy two more players on deadline day. Yes. No. Chill people. You guys crack me up

    Mourinho will be gone by Christmas. He knows he can't compete with City or Liverpool. He's worried by Spurs and Chelsea and who knows what Arsenal will be like this season without the Wenger cloud hanging over them. There is real danger of Utd not making the top 4 this season. All this excuse making, criticising his players and blaming everyone else is just ensuring that his time at Utd comes to a swift conclusion with another huge payout. He's running out of "top" European clubs to manage. It coukd be a while before we see him again

    I don't get all the fuss! 1. Maguire hasn't taken to Twitter expressing his desire to leave. 2. Even if he does, we own him. 3. He isn't for sale. 4. Chillax
  9. I have literally no clue. Exciting or excruciating. I think we'll either have a brilliant season and crack the top 7, or a disastrous one and get relegated. It'll be one or the other, but it won't be mid table security.

    When do we start to get worried?

    That's the spirit!

    It's a fine balance. We want the best players to come here, of course. But part of our appeal to up and coming stars is that they can come here, develop, achieve international recognition and then be allowed to move on if the price is right. That must be a factor in players' minds when faced with chosing between us, Everton and West Ham for example. If we are seen as a good club to come and develop then eventually, if we are patient, enough of the good players will stay here and enjoy sustainable success. We're not quite there yet but we are heading in the right direction.

    We don't have to and I can see the argument that we shouldn't. I have a feeling though that our owners are a little fairer to the player than they could be. We could insert a 200m release clause but that would be pointless. Somewhere in the 60-90 region is more realistic and would achieve a great return on investment. Of course, we don't have to offer a new contract if we were really hard. We could say that he's here for the duration on what he signed up on and that's it. End of negotiation.

    What sort of thing is Maguire supposed to say? "I'm Leicester 'til I die"? I have no issue with our players being ambitious, it doesn't mean they are looking to jump ship at the drop of a hat. He has 4 years left on his contract. Our owners have never let more than one star player leave in a single transfer window. Mahrez has gone and there is uncertainty around Schmeichel. No way does Maguire leave. He seems quite content here at the moment and should thrive with a new system and formation. I wouldn't be surprised if his agent pushes for improved contract here with the insertion of a 60m release clause. Maguire will still be a Leicester player next May.
