  1. Not sure if you've heard this mate but apparently our kits are based upon some kind of template??? Shocking if true
  2. I agree with the general sentiment in that we're probably not a million miles away from some of the teams above us and if we can maximise the potential in the squad whilst making some clever additions, we'll go far. Can't agree with some of their conclusions with regards to our transfer policy though. "The permanent signing of Youri Tielemans, the ruthless upgrade of Kasper Schmeichel and the addition of a worthy alternative to Jamie Vardy would leave Leicester with a Champions League-standard squad" - maybe, but realistically that's probably costing somewhere towards £100m and I really don't see us spending that sort of money without selling. I don't see what's so outdated about accepting over-the-odds bids for players if it allows you to strengthen the squad. If we hold on to all our players then great, but doing that whilst also bringing in a good striker, a quality winger and Tielemans/a Tielemans replacement would leave us reliant on the "combination of supreme scouting and sheer luck" through which we've apparently survived selling Kante, Drinkwater and Mahrez. It's good to be ambitious but it's always going to be constrained by financial realities, no matter how determined or optimistic you are.
  3. I think he's a complete helmet. The others on RL come across fairly well and I like Piper but they unfortunately get dragged down to his level by his incessant class clown bollocks. Maybe he's a really nice guy, who knows, but as a broadcaster and journalist he's not to my taste. More concerned with soundbites and inane banter than actually doing his job and keeping people informed about the things he's covering.
  4. In truth after repeated listens I'd probably rank it exactly the same as you, but I've still got time for it and it's got a certain charm of its own. It'll be interesting to see what he does next as these last two really sound like him retreating inwards and from the interviews he did around this release it sounds as if he's had enough of the "slacker/goofball" image.
  5. What would you rather they did? If they'd just slowed the game down at 2 or 3 nil and just kept the ball for the rest of the game, not sure that would have been any more respectful to their opponents. Maybe they should have scored a few own goals in added time just to take the edge off it and add a bit of #class #respect to proceedings
  6. I obviously think he's a club legend but that doesn't mean I think he should never be dropped. If he goes through a sustained spell of bad form then of course his place in the starting line up should be questioned, as with every player. That's not really hypocrisy

    Tielemans

    I could understand the clamour for a target man if we were talking about someone actually good. Rondon's got 34 goals in about 140 PL appearances, he's 30 in September and I doubt he's all that keen to go from undisputed first choice striker to our last minute panic hoofball option when we're drawing at home to Sheff Utd
  8. His track record is certainly very poor and I would rather not have the manager influencing who we appoint in recruitment positions, but think I'll wait and see how he actually does before deciding he's the worst thing to ever happen to the club
  9. Given the new album a few listens already today and really enjoying it, very relaxed and low-key.

    Two of the key figures in the Liverpool team that's made it to two successive Champions League finals came to the Premier League from Scotland. Some of our best players in recent years have been signed from the likes of Le Havre, Genk, Fleetwood, QPR and Forest. I would think Leicester fans of all people should be able to recognise that a player's current or former clubs are not necessarily representative of the limits of their ability.

    Almost certainly, yes
  12. Yeah why don't we just come out and beat them? Easy isn't it
  13. I'm not sure how you can complain about questionable reporting and bias and then back it up by referencing that article, which is one of the most bizarre things I've read in some time

    Hamza

    I had him down as being pretty limited - good for if we needed someone to disrupt the opposition but not really anything beyond that. Couldn't really understand the consistent calls for him to be in the side but think he's probably going to prove me wrong. Tidy passer, not afraid to drive forward with the ball and strong and aggressive in the tackle without being reckless. I get the impression Torreira might fancy himself as a bit of a scrapper but Hamza made him look like a little kid on more than one occasion. Still think it's a little early to properly judge how good he is and I wonder how useful he'd be against more defensive-minded teams, but he's looking good and I hope it continues.
  15. That's the thing - you don't know that. My observations were that he's a pretty shy and understated guy who, when we started to slump after the title, was probably told by his advisers something along the lines of: "look mate, you're approaching the peak of your career and if you want to earn loads of money, win stuff and play in Europe for a top team, now's the time". The way he went about it was far from ideal but I understand why it's the course of action he chose. You could use a lot of words to describe him but I just don't think "arrogant" is one. Equally, I don't know that for sure. With regards to his behaviour, none of us know enough to judge him. (Incidentally, I think if I went from playing in Ligue 2 to winning the league, winning PFA player of the year and coming 7th in the Ballon d'Or voting, my opinion of myself would probably also inflate pretty sharply ) The stuff in the Mail article is, I imagine, pretty commonplace - players who want to play more games talk to their mates about wanting to play more games. The headline screams "THREATENS TO QUIT" but nothing in the body says anything to that effect and Pep says he's staying for the next few seasons at least. The "depressed" thing was something allegedly said to Sky by a friend of his, besides which it's perfectly possible for someone to feel depressed about something without professing to actually have depression, so I think it's pretty disingenuous to say he "co-opted depression". I completely understand why you think he's a tit for the way he engineered the move but I just don't see him as being arrogant in the slightest and I don't think the media speculation is anything like an accurate portrayal of him as a person.
