  1. Ben Chillwell - How far will he go?

    Two players who play in different positions, so not a great comparison. As a defender you require a lot more discipline compared to an attacker, hence why defenders tend to mature in their mid to late 20's. We also judge attackers by assists and goals. What stats can you use for fullbacks? I am not a fan of Chilwell by any means but lets not go OTT with the comparisons to Diabate.
  2. Ben Chillwell - How far will he go?

    Chilwell has plenty of potential but he appears to be following the current trend with modern day defenders wherein he can't defend. Hopefully that comes with experience. My main concern is that he's meant to be 'attacking' but other than being great at running with the ball, he doesn't have an end product what so ever. He lacks composure. Again that may come with age. Unfortunately I don't think you can teach someone to have a good footballing brain. As others have pointed out, you only have to look at Schlupp. Great athlete but unbelievably stupid when it comes to decision making. Personally happy to keep trying him. Fuchs has past his best. I think we are safe from relegation so there's no better time really for him to gain experience. I feel similarly to players like Gray and Diabate. They need game time for them to show what they are capable of. Gray in particular needs to step up but that's for another thread.

  4. I do whatever the area around me dictates. If everyone stands, which is my preferable choice, then I stand. If everyone is seated then I sit. Pretty simple really. It's usually once a year that this topic comes up. I am not too sure whether the club can do too much other than unreserved seating as they don't want to encourage standing at seated stadiums. It was only a couple of years ago that the stewards were telling everyone to sit constantly. Fortunately this has slacked off a little bit. It's only going to take a few people moaning about it for it to be ruined for everyone. We all support the same team. Be understanding to those around you and don't be a dick.
  5. It became the players business the moment that he decided not to turn up to training thus letting his team mates down. He has acted like a **** throughout the whole thing. Whether this is down to his agent or himself, I don't care. He owes the club, the players and the fans an apology. Personally he can do this by turning up and performing on the pitch.
  6. Diabaté Signs

    Yeah I agree entirely. Both have improved over time. I'd expect the same for any professional. It's criminal if you don't.
  7. Diabaté Signs

    I still find it baffling that many professional football are so one footed but lets face it we don't have to look much further than Marc Albrighton when it comes to one footed footballers that make it work. Also to a certain extent Mahrez. Being one footed isn't what concerns me, it's more fans expectation. This has been highlighted in another thread regarding the pressures placed on young players. I already worry people expect him to be the next Mahrez, when he could quite easily be another Musa. I hope us fans stay grounded, as I hope the players does too. Nothing wrong with being a little excited though..

  9. Would you date a Transsexual?

    I wouldn't personally but mainly because my wife wouldn't be too pleased. I'd be very happy for any of you guys to date one though.

  11. The "do they mean us?" thread

    But the figures people are quoting on here are what he's worth to the Club not what his actual value is. Clubs probably won't want to fork out £30+ for a 31 year old. If that's the case, he's staying where he is. We don't have to sell. We don't need the money and he's a crucial asset to us. My previous post was me pretty much saying I wouldn't sell him at any cost.
  12. The "do they mean us?" thread

    I had a similar conversation at the game on Saturday. I honestly believe that in terms of finishing that Iheanacho is the better player but lets face it, he wouldn't even get himself in the positions to have 10 chances so there's no point even comparing the two. In terms of all round player, Vardy is the best striker we have by a country mile. His footballing brain has improved no end in the last 3 seasons. His vision, his hold up play, his heading...literally everything is better than Iheanacho, Slimani, Ulloa and Okazaki put together. I wouldn't sell him for £50 million, let alone £30million. He is the focal point of how we play and set-up, alongside Kasper, Maguire and N'didi. If you seriously only see him as a 'sprinter' then I'd have to question whether you are watching the same player.
  13. Adrien Silva

    Can't believe I am reading people are concerned about his 'lack of pace!' A player with a good footballing brain doesn't need to run about like a headless chicken or run the 100m in 11 seconds. If you compare Silva to the rest of our midfielders other than N'didi then they are all similarly paced. Unfortunately neither King or James have a great footballing brain. Iborra seems to run at a snails pace yet has a bit of class. Jury is still out on Silva but pace isn't everything. Over the years I've read the same thing about centre backs. We MUST have a fast centre back. No we don't. A good reader of the game doesn't need to be fast.
  14. The "Random Thoughts" Thread

    It's something that plays on my mind. I also wonder when the last time I ever 'played out' with my mates or when did I stop playing with toys? Did I wake up one day and just stop. (Incidentally now I have kids I probably play with kids toys just as much as I did as a child).
  15. The "Random Thoughts" Thread

    Similarly I've always wondered what blind people dream about, especially those born without vision. Are their dreams just sounds?
