  1. Ex-Leicester City player news

    Max Gradel, from Bournemouth to Toulouse on loan for the season http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/40958723
  2. Which players have gone to better things?

    Bigger only on the inside...
  3. Ahmed Musa - Possible Loan Move

    Abel Hernandez out for about 8 months so Hull in the market for a striker. Slutsky has talked to the Hull media about hopefully bringing in Musa. It's been suggested to me that Musa might just sit on his backside and keep the money coming in rather than dropping to the Championship. Hull also linked with Zohore at Cardiff.
  4. Slimani

    I'm not sure he rated him at 28 million. Ranieri pushed hard at any cost.
  5. Slimani

    Everton sniffing around Slimani apparently.
  6. Ex-Leicester City player news

    Curtis Davies, David Nugent, Greg Cunningham and Paul Gallagher were all on the pitch together at Derby v Preston last night. Like a Sven 2011 reunion!!
  7. Drinkwater

    Me lurking? You stalking me? I don't think he's Chelsea's first choice but he's an option for them. I hope our DoF has someone up his sleeve to replace him adequately if he goes.
  8. Speed Awareness Course

    Nabbed doing 84 in a 70 (M5 motorway near Bristol, late on a Friday night), applied for the speed awareness course, waiting to hear back. I hope it's a valuable experience.
  9. Self employed workers

    I've been self employed for almost 20 years. Sometimes you're busier than others. I push myself at times and sit back a bit at times. The trick is not to worry too much during the leaner times but not spend, spend, spend when things are flying. Paid off my mortgage so that gives a little more freedom. I don't get paid holidays or if I'm sick but that's the nature of the beast and I'm not complaining. Also, I love the various bits of work I do.
  10. Is Shakespeare the right man for the job?

    I know we lost, and that's ultimately the bottom line, but doesn't Shakespeare deserve a modicum of credit for us being 3-2 up late on away at a team we always lose at?
  11. Embarrassing

    It's not like fans to look for scapegoats is it?! One game. More positives than negatives. It's one game - away at a very good team who we never beat. Still gutted though.
  12. Deeney

    Deals get lined up and don't happen for many reasons. Most of the time it doesn't even make the press although with social media and 24hr TV/Radio sport channels it's harder to keep stuff quiet these days. Leicester have tracked Deeney for a while. Can't see him coming this window unless others are shifted out. In terms of a fee for him, he's more valuable to Watford than he is to us. He wasn't happy last season, for various reasons, but then neither were a few of his team mates, mainly due to the manager. They were talking £18m in January. Watford have just signed Andre Gray for £18m. Gray scored 9 league goals last season. Deeney scored 10 league goals last season. Gray's 26, Deeney is 29, not a massive difference. I find it jaw dropping when I read he's "past his best" - how do they know that or is it just an opinion? In my opinion I think he's a much better all round footballer than some of our fans give him credit for and think he'd link up well with Vardy.
  13. Deeney

    He was lined up to join us for £18m in January as per the much mocked 'mystery man' thread
  14. Ex-Leicester City player news

    "One Stephen Dawson, there's only one Stephen Dawson..." What we chanted at Oakwell as the Barnsley PA man announced him as 'man of the match' when we walloped them 3-0
  15. Ahmed Musa - Possible Loan Move

    They want to move Musa on and they like Deeney. But that doesn't mean either is necessarily going to happen.
