  1. It's going to be a long season...
  2. Is Shakespeare the right man for the job?

    Not appleton... nige is in the wings
  3. Truth us we have a cautios manager... two new mids - one barred and one not upto speed.... a goalie who has poor games... etc etc This is leading to low confidence.. its all over the shop
  4. Bbc rađio leicester

    The post match phone in raised some good questions. When stringer got the chance he could have asked shakey: Why didn't iborra start? You say the team are not positive enough... are you? Peoole are saying you're not up to it... what can you say to those people? Again you take albrighton off when you put slim on. .. is that sensible? Does nigels new job make your position weaker? Are we missing drinky.. why was he allowed to leave. .. whats you opinion on that decision? No one has asked the last question... why not ? How can we get better bbc coverage that is not kowtowing to the club?
  5. Is Shakespeare the right man for the job?

    I think he needs to sit with the sports psychologist and becone more positive in games. If so it could end well....
  6. Liverpool (H) Match Thread

    King is now our first pick for pl matches. .... hes a nice bloke .... but that shows that shakey has lost his mind.... ot that we are in deep dodo
  7. Nigel Pearson working for KP again

    Can't live with him.... can't live without him I thought that np was unhappy with the thais being tough with his lad over the bangkok incident. So does anyone know how they got over it? Surely np didn't admit he was wrong? Que press man asking him for a view on how the thais dealt with it etc Putting that aside ... np will build a great club for them. His tactics were sometimes a bit fixed.... but maybe he has learnt something. I expect him to be back at lcfc as soon as shakey has four losses in a row
  8. Is Slimani of premier league quality

    I have no idea.... but i sit and watch the performance every week.... i watch slimani gettimg pushed arround. The quote from vardy was from a program interview in our championship winning year Seriously i do believe that to be elite in any area like sport maths music etc you need to specially work to strech yourself to aquire the skills...fitness.. mindset of the elite. The book "peek" by anders eriksen shows that many teams train for team work or general skills ...or for this weeks match rather than setting time to have individuals work on their own improvement goals
  9. Is Slimani of premier league quality

    I dont doubt his work in the box. His positions are good. I do think it would be better both in and out of the box if he was stronger so he doesn't get pushed about. When vardy came to us he said he found he was up agaist strongest defenders he had ever encountered. He went to the gym and said it took a year. I loved that application. I wish slimani could make that progress. It's the fact that the other parts of his game are so good means that he should put in the effort to be more
  10. Is Slimani of premier league quality

    he is not strong enough to dice with pl defenders and this has been the case since he arrived - he is too easily pushed off the ball. he pulls out of tackles like his one on one with the lpool goalie last night. He has had a year to work in the gym and to address this issue - he has done nothing. I expect he has not done any training to address his poor passing either. If he was making progress with these things I would support him. Right now he is not PL quality - the worrying thing is he doesn't seem to be improved to become pl quality. If he won't help himself then why should we support him? he scored a great goal - but this can't paper over the cracks
  11. The Iborra Thread

    Hes got a way to go... we should pay him ahead of kingy
  12. You're right. But he was struggling.... but he'll be better prepared next time. This aint Spain
  13. It's early days... iborra looked classy but way way off the pace for the pl I hope this isnt another case if a foreign player unable to adapt to the lack of time and space in the pl. I am hoping he suceeds ... but i was dissapointed last night. .. these guys must be alive to the issue. ..so i expected him to be ready. Truth is he was too slow for liverpool reserves... work needed
  14. Slimani.... a great goal but the rest of the game he was woeful. Early on there was a 50.50 ball v their keeper and he pulled out. Vardy would have battered in so that next time the keeper wouldn't be so brave. He is frightened of contact. The lpool defenders were big. Yet slimani is just not strong enough. He has been with us a year. His strength and combativeness are things ge could have worked on. But he hasnt bothered. His passing was awful. Shinji came on and showed how to close down defenders at speed causing them to play hasty poor passes. Slimani hit a great strike for his goal.... but i think it us not enough. Either he starts to work on his flaws or we shouldnt play him. Iheanacho needs to find some form.... why give minutes to slimani if he wont work on his weaknesses?
