  1. Totally agree about winning at Wembley-we didn’t get to see the moment the league was won. Mind you, the Queen will have to go some to beat Bocelli for the trophy presentation!
  2. - I don’t think that’s a fact universally acknowledged, even if I happen to agree - A good chunk of the reason our squad is so good is the recruitment and coaching work that he plays a huge role in. - We’ve also beaten Man Utd to reach a Cup Final, and sit above Chelsea and Liverpool in the League table too. Is our squad better than theirs too? - If so, then the club of which he is manager is massively overachieving. I guess this comes down to whether you and @Babylon think that overachieving is a concept that makes sense. If the argument is “this squad finished third, s
  3. I’m not sure we can get antsy about this piece. Ok, Maguire/Chilwell being our best players is overstating to fit a narrative, but they were pretty much ever-present before they were sold. The structure of the club is praised, the recruitment is praised, the development of players is praised. Carragher argues that Brendan is more flexible and effective than he used to be. This is what we all think, isn’t it? If we object to coverage like this, we’re on a slippery slope to Spursdom.
  4. Kasper Ricardo Morgan Fofana Fuchs Mahrez Kante Tielemans Barnes Okazaki Vardy Notes: Probably choose Huth&Morgan or Evans&Fofana in real life, because partnerships mean a lot, but I can’t leave Fofana out-the guy is sensational. Ndidi is better than Kante is now, but no one has ever been better than Kante 15/16. Wilf is the first name on the team sheet now though. Okazaki was a crucial cog in bringing in the wingers. Harsh on Maddison, but he doesn’t work so well with Youri...
  5. Surely not? We’ve got an almost impossible supply of great full backs, and JJ, Ricardo and Tim all prefer right back. Would rather have cover in literally any other position tbh...
  6. Unsubscribe. Send the broadcasters under Send the big boys under. Welcome Big 6 Phoenix clubs back to League Two. Unintended consequence: Leicester win *everything* for 5 years.
  7. That would be the death of everything. You’d end up with Man Utd and Liverpool completely and utterly untouchable financially. It’s what’s happened to some extent in the Spain, and they have the most pointless league in Europe. Apart from Scotland, obviously.
  8. Rooney was crap by modern standards. Still in the top 5 striker stats for any metric you care to mention.
  9. Don’t believe the modesty mate. Lineker is England’s best striker in my lifetime-the fact that he doesn’t feel the need to tell everybody how good he was (Shearer) doesn’t mean he wasn’t. Prime Lineker today would be prime Aguero, plus he could head the ball.
  10. Survey aside, I think we lack long-term rivals. Closest thing to a current enmity is a near-universal probably irrational distaste for Spurs, but that isn’t grounded in anything substantial. Otherwise Forest/Derby/Coventry for proximity. You haven’t got any Spanish teams in there, and the only overseas team we have any sort of rivalry with is Atletico Madrid. Cheers
  11. Did anyone else who did the survey have 3 pages of Sheff Utd questions? Didn’t even put them as a rival...
  12. Thanks for that. It’s a shame they didn’t do one for Wasilewski-it would have been a beautiful thing...
  13. Vardy and Albrighton I reckon. Huth as an angel... 🥸
  14. Pissed off with this post. I was about to write exactly the same thing and wait for rep points.
  15. It’s a bit heartbreaking to suggest this, but is this a consequence of empty stadiums? Our fans have been pretty harsh on him, and he’s a confidence player. We’re not as cvntish as West Ham, obviously, but we definitely have the propensity to make fragile players crumble. Really hope it’s just a run in the side that’s given him confidence, but can’t help wondering...
  16. Totally with this. The best thing about the Tigers is they are Leicester FC, with the nickname the Tigers. All the Bradford Bulls, Exeter Chiefs, Miami Heat stuff is nonsense for non-fans. Up the City (men and women)
  17. Whiny cheat of an opponent said we did it wrong? Heavens, we’d better rebuild the training centre...
  18. Boring, dirty, diving, time wasting bastards. If that’s being champions, I’m happy with third
  19. Izzet would definitely be the star, but I don’t think you could overlook what Heskey would have done with Vardy as a foil... We’d *probably* cope without Elliott now, but he was Huth-like at his best, and a real threat from any set piece.
  20. God that’s the worst thing I’ve ever seen. He looks like Vardy if Vardy had eaten Big Wes...
  21. Sorry, that was an autoincorrect. Was meant to say paying, not lying
  22. What a man. If for nothing else than actually paying his tax he’d be a legend, but the best player in our best season too. Happy 30th N’Golo
