  1. West Ham post match 1-1

    We were good for the first 30 mins. against Everton, good for the first 30 mins. against Stoke, good for the first 5 mins. against Man. City and good for the first 20 mins. tonight. See the pattern..... The difference between halfs are like night and day. At this rate we need to be 4-0 up at half time to even have a chance of a result against Spurs. Poor decisions by Mahrez and Gray tonight, just need to get that right to give ourselves a chance. I can't agree with the good point brigade, we seem to accept mediocrity as the norm.
  2. Riyad Mahrez - The great Artist

    Not a YouTube clip!! A documentary and a very good one too.
  3. The "nonsensical things that Leicester do" thread

    Honestly I thought I was the only person who noticed this. I have pointed this out to people before but no one seems to have picked up on this. This had been going on for years.
  4. Riyad Mahrez - The great Artist

    I think you would get a good understanding of Mahrez if you take a look at Netflix "Concrete Football".
  5. Man City Post Match Thread 0-2

    Man. City are a good team, these constant eulogies are premature and certainly a backward step in respect of PL teams as you are beaten before you get on the pitch. Pep was never going to change his style and we set up to counteract them. I bet you the players are livid with that performance, we never gave ourselves a chance! I can see there could well be dissolution within the ranks regarding the thoughts behind out set up today. Puel seems to have this negativity in him, which has manifested itself in all three games he has managed and if anything he should have realised we are not a good team when we sit off teams. I think it will be watch this space, as Puel tenure could very soon be called into question. No, this is not an overreaction, just an observation!!
  6. Do we need/want a whole new regime?

    I am amazed 70% of Foxestalk believe in a rebuild as the direction for the club to take in order to achieve success! There is absolutely nothing wrong with the the system which we play, so long as high tempo and pressing. People allude to this as making us a "one trick pony". We seem to forget this to our detriment. I personally want to keep our style of play, if you look at Atletico Madrid they play the same only with better players. We need to aspire to that standard and with Iborra and Silva it now appears that we are going in the right direction. We are not going to get Simeone but getting Wagner would I believe allow us to continue what we started. Being different is not s bad thing, take a look at Saracens (Rugby Union) they play high tempo in there opponents half and feed off other teams mistakes, no other team plays this way, they have won 2 European Championship in the last 2 years and are favourite to win it again this year. We only play "hoof ball" when we forget what makes this club tick, Shakey and Ranieri made that mistake, changing our style would make us one of the "also rans", I believe we are better than that and 70% of us I feel need to understand this.
  7. Thoughts on Dyche?

    Everyone talking about his ability to take charge of the squad. If this is the criteria for successfully navigating us from our current position then why not re-instate Pearson!! Would not want Dyche anywhere near the club and would like a foreign coach (doesn't have to be a name). Everyone moaning about 4-4-2, the formation is not the problem it is the way we play it. Why we constantly keep changing the way we play, for the life of me I can not understand. We need to go back to basics, it's not rocket science!!!
  8. FIFA reject Adrien Silva appeal

    I know this is a silly question but: Has FIFA actually stated the reason(s) why the ITC can not be released? It seems we all believe it is to do with the 14 seconds but is there an additional problem which has not publicly being made known. As I understand, the fee is required to be paid before the deadline of 11.00pm and only then an extension can be granted. Have we paid the fee!!!!!!!!!! I do not believe we can take FIFA to court as the club and FA have agreed to FIFA's t's & c's. I agree the club should have made more of this within the media, as we seem to come across as easy prey. I have a nagging doubt all is not as stated by the club and due to their actions have created a situation which has thrown this club into chaos.
  9. Adrien Silva - Terms Agreed

    Having checked FIFA's schedule it appears that the likelihood of a decision will be made on 27 October 2017 at the next council meeting. I suspect the reason why we have not had periodic updates from the LCFC is they are aware of this. I do hope that there are no deadlines for an appeal!!!
  10. Gray is amazing

    This!!
  11. Shakespeare in talks to extend contract

    Surely the delay is eating into our timetable to recruit new players. The owners appear to be in no hurry to make a decision but the potential to pick up your number one target is imo being lost, due to complacency.

    Source!!
  13. Will kasper stay or go......?

    Please not Hart!! So up himself. Plenty of quality keepers out there.
  14. Time to name Shakes permanent manager?

    We played a high press in the Championship................. won that. Pearson did not think we could play the saw way in Premiership.............disaster. Pearson finally saw the light and went back to what we do well in last 9 games....success. Ranieri felt we should keep high press........... Champions. Ranieri thought we had been sussed out and changed the way we play............disaster. Shakey goes back to high press...........success. Last too games Shakey has not employed a press, made Arsenal look good, struggled against at West Brom. Any more performances like this will quash any chance (if not already) of Shakey getting job. We need the manager's position to be resolved in order to identify and put out feelers for potential players. Last 2 games have made me doubt the wisdom of appointing Shakey as I can not imagine there is another manager who understands his players and what makes them tick.
  15. TWO YEARS AGO.

    If you remember,we played great football in the championship. We absolutely walked it. I expected we would finish in the top ten quite easily in the Premiership. Pearson however decided that if you played the same way in the Premiership we would be slaughtered, so he played a conservative style which did not suit the team so we lost game after game. We were on 19 points with 9 games to play. Realising that his options had become limited he resorted to play the high tempo pressing game that this time is built for. Had Pearson stayed and backed his team last season's triumph would have been his. In relation to the Man. Untd. 5-3 result, it was obvious when we went at untd they could not cope with us. I wish Pearson could come back, a more mature,humble person but I can't see it happening. This team can play only one style, it is time they got back to it!
