  2. Vardy - I want to win more trophies

    I'm not so sure that we would have to change our style if he left. Granted, he is the best that we have in that role but I think he is good enough to play in a number of styles. We don't have to play the way we do because of JV. It's Mahrez that holds us back. He can only play on the wing in a 442. If he leaves then we can be much more flexible in our set up. The trouble is the big teams that can afford him realise this and as they don't play 442, so they have left him alone.
  3. Marriage Advice

    90% of your life's pleasure will be dictated by your decision with a caveat that 90% of your life's misery will also trace back to this moment. Choose carefully. Where is she going to take you 10 years from now? 20 years from now? 50 years from now?
  4. Thoughts on Dyche?

    Folk on here need to get real with where we are as a club. All football clubs go through phases of re-invention. Peaks and troughs all the way. Realistically, the only team that bucked this trend was Man Utd under Fergie who managed consistent success whilst assembling and dis-assembling 4 or 5 distinct teams. It is easier for some teams to do it than others as they have the pulling power to buy in the talent, but no team is capable of performing at the top for more than 2-3 years. Man City are on the up, Man Utd are on the up, Chelsea aren't quite what they were last season, Spurs have plateaued now and if they don't win it this season, they won't win it for years. Looking further down the table form is much more up and down, even with solid prem teams like Stoke and Southampton. Leicester have spent a great deal of time improving and building a great team. Pearson should take a huge amount of credit for building the squad and then Claudio added the tactical edge that we needed and so we peaked in 2016. It was always unlikely that we would maintain that standard for even the short term and the team are now on the slide - some key people have left and those players that peaked two years ago that remain are now two years older and not unexpectedly losing some sharpness. What Leicester now needs to do is start the rebuilding process again. Cut ties with the past and bring in fresh ideas and be prepared to graft at it for the next 2-3 years. We want to be a team that consistently challenge for European places and it is possible but the vehicle that brought us the Premier League title has lost its momentum now and has failed its MOT. It is time for a change. We are in a much better situation now than where we were in 2008 but we do need to rebuild. Dyche ticks a lot of boxes for me and I see no reason why both Leicester as a football club and Dyche as a manager can't grow together and achieve more success in the future.
  5. The Great Universe Debate

    Loving this thread. This is really interesting stuff, thankyou @TiffToff88 for starting it and in particular @leicsmac for your insightful input. I'm definitely in the multi-verse camp, if it can happen once, it will happen again. Travelling through space at the speed of light whilst slowing time sounds like a lot of fun, but I'm not 100% certain of all the technicalities.
  6. Thoughts on Dyche?

    I know he speaks of lack of funds from time to time but there is no chance that he will use public transport to get to work.
  7. Thoughts on Dyche?

    Leicester is literally one step up from Burnley, he has earned the right to give the next level a shot. I believe that we are at the same level as Everton, Southampton, Stoke and WBA and I'd rather he came to us than any of them. The top 6 could consider him a risk, but not us.
  8. Thoughts on Dyche?

    Right now he would be perfect for us. It's an easy yes from me. All day long.
  9. Thoughts on Dyche?

    Northampton actually, 2 minutes from Junction15 M1.
  10. Next City Manager?

    Didn't Dyche recently turn down a 5 year contract at Burnley, opting for a one year rolling contract? That tells me that he is open to having his head turned. We would tick a lot of boxes for Dyche, both professionally and personally.
  11. The Great Universe Debate

    If the universe is expanding, what is it expanding into? Let's say that the universe is a thing of (expanding) finite size, expanding into infinite space (which is a separate entity). Let's also say that the creation event occurred when a certain set of physics based laws converged to allow the precise conditions required to create the universe. So if SPACE is infinite in time and size, then even if the creation conditions occur once in a billion years in any given area of SPACE, then UNIVERSES will be being created somewhere all the time. Imagine that the King Power Stadium is section of SPACE and a football represents our UNIVERSE, then in my mind at least, it is perfectly conceivable that there can be lots of UNIVERSES in SPACE. Nature suggests that if things can happen once, it can happen again. With infinite time and space, it will be happening all the time in lots of locations.
  12. Next City Manager?

    I'm putting it out there. Sean Dyche. He has done great with Burnley and without being disrespectful to them, he has taken them as far as they can go, surely. He'll never manage one of the top 6 teams, but I'm sure he'll see Leicester as a step up before he takes the England job (which will happen). He would motivate and organise the players and I dare say he wouldn't be afraid to put some players in their place if and when necessary. His family also live a lot closer to Leicester than Burnley.
  13. Next City Manager?

    Ok, well let's add Gary Neville to the list. If Ryan Giggs was a good premier league manager (and he might be one day) then he would have had a job by now. Trust me, now is not the time to be chancing our arm with unproven potential, what we need is credible top flight experience.
  14. Next City Manager?

    Marco Silva is a great shout. Ryan Giggs is an awful one.
  15. New Manager, essential credentials?

    We have technically good players. Need someone to organise them and motivate them.
