  1. The "nonsensical things that Leicester do" thread

    We have scored numerous goals from counter attacks over the past 3 seasons from opposition corners/free kicks when we bring everyone back, so this argument really doesn't work. Us leaving 3 up would mean they leave 3/4 back, and would give us less room to break at pace as our attacking players are already up there, and them defensively being set up well for the counter. Look at the Vardy goal against Everton 2 weeks ago, we broke from deep with everybody back, they committed loads up thinking they have nobody to worry about up top. Boom 20 seconds later gooal. As well it actually makes defending set pieces easier. The more bodies in the box the less likely somebody is to have a free run and header at goal due to the traffic in the box. There is a reason that pretty much everybody in the world does it.
  2. West Ham Away

    How are tickets selling for away games in general this year? Not been tempted by an away this year, but hoping to pick up tickets for West Ham, Southampton & Liverpool in the nect 2 months but only have exactly 220 points. What's the likelihood of securing tickets for all 3?
  3. Everton 2-0 (H) Post Match Thread

    Yet again Wes Morgan comfortably the best defender on the pitch. And people on here quickly want him replaced because he doesn't try and pass the ball like John Stones...
  4. If it makes you feel better...

    I must have been looking through ginger tinted specs then! I just remember us being much more difficult to beat under Megson than Holloway. Can't say with certainty either way and is the most obsolete argument ever!
  5. If it makes you feel better...

    You're an odd one. I remember under Megson we were dull as hell, but difficult to beat. Think we only lost game under him, granted we drew a lot and only won 1 but we were tough to beat. Under Holloway we were just rubbish in every element of the game and we conceded loads.
  6. If it makes you feel better...

    And yet he would have kept us up, unlike Hollowhead.
  7. [OFFICIAL] Claude Puel is the new manager for Leicester City

    I'm ambivalent, which sums up how I feel about lcfc and the manager situation. When we had Nige in I was desperate for us to do well,because it felt like we were in it together and I wanted the success as a fan and for him personally. Claudio bought us great success,and was a lovely bloke so I afforded him more patience last year when many called for him to go. Shakey has seen 10 years of success afforded the club,so wanted him to carry on his legacy. But Puel I'm just not fussed about,if he does well great,if he doesn't then I won't be too fussed. Oddly as it sounds winning the title has made me less interested in us winning than before.
  8. What do we make of Aleksandar Dragović so far?

    He's played against Liverpool's 4th choice striker, and Leeds' 3rd choice striker, and granted looked decent, but that's not enough to displace Morgan who has been doing it at the top level against the best strikers for the last 4 years, and he has been our best centre half every season we have been in the prem, except the great escape year. People get the wrong impression of Wes, because his bad games are catastrophically bad to the point he looks like he has never played football before, but they are few and far between. He is a considerably better defender than Maguire, has more pace than both Maguire and Dragovic and from the limited time we have seen he is better in the air than Dragovic, which is why in a 442 he has to play. 352 on the other hand I wouldn't mind Maguire, Morgan & Dragovic/Fuchs.
  9. Claude Puel - Contender

    Puel sounds like Pulis,so you know he's going to be fvcking dull.
  10. Next City Manager?

    Heard whispers of pellegrini from the most bollocks of sources.
  11. Come Home Nigel

    Dyche is a poor man's Pearson. Finished below us when we won the league,couldn't keep Burnley up 1st time which Nige did for us. Yet people want him in as a fairly popular choice in comparison to some of the other names. Why do people think Pearson would be going backwards? We wouldn't sign Hobbs, Fryatt and Oakley in January! He improves every element of the club in both his spells,and the same people had the same problems with him coming back the first time! So in short, come home Nigel!
