  1. Mahrez to Man City shock

    According to BBC sport Man city are willing to sell Jon Stones. Him and Mcguire at the back could be our central defenders for years. Maybe we could get 35mill + Stones for Mahrez. They get a player they want and remove a player who never plays. We could have a solid central defence with Stones + Mcguire along with Chilwell, Gray, Diabate, Kelechi we have an exciting team with potential.
  2. Southampton pre match

    Focus on next season now for me. I was hoping we sold Mahrez in January (he is the most skilful and creative player we have been lucky enough to watch play for us, but clearly he wants to move on) and this would have allowed Diabate and Gray 15 games to see if they are good enough. I would like to play a side which we can see youthful players have a chance and see if they are ready for next season. Schmeichel, Amartey, Dragovic, McGuire, Chilwell. Gray, Ndidi Silva Diabate, Kalechi + Vardy. Yes we might lose a few games, by playing out and out wingers who want to create, and 2 strikers. But with 5 games starting together we could at least get an idea if this team could be ready for next season. Move on Morgan, Simpson and Mahrez. Thank them for the league titles they won with us but prepare to create a new side for next season.
  3. Leicester City Vs Newcastle United

    Like the look to your second team. Frightening front 3.
  4. Robert Huth

    Valid point. However I would say Huth has done more in his number of appearances for our club, than the majority of players who have more appearances than him. Huth hugely helped us avoid relegation when we looked almost certain to go down. And then he was a vital part of the side that won the league. I would say club legend is fair. But then it depends what we class as a club legend.
  5. Good interview and chat about Mahrez, some insightful perspectives on the situation. I personally felt we should have sold Mahrez, took the money if it was the reported 65mill. and used Gray and Diabete for the remainder of season, see how they perform and if they are good enough and take 4 months to identify the ideal replacement for Mahrez.
  6. waste of 65 million if we don't play him again.
  7. Well done the Thais

    Very tough situation. For what we paid for him and for what he has done for our club, 65 million is a huge amount. Especially now the player does not want to be here. I would have sold for anything around 70 million. We have Gray and this would have gave him 15 games roughly to show his talent and give him a proper run in the side. We keep the squad harmony together as do not have to deal with a player who does not want to be here. Sold Mahrez and we have Gray, Diabete and Barnes. We can only finish lowest possible about 9th placed, and highest 7th really. He has showed he does not want to be here for two transfer windows, and that is a good amount of money to take. Puel, is known for giving youth a chance and this would have been a good time to do that.
  8. Will Mahrez go for 100 million.

    Good shout! Didn't see the + player too, hopefully it is 65mill and a player. Might be Foden on loan? Mangala is going Everton so It cant be him.
  9. Will Mahrez go for 100 million.

    Very tough one, as we turned down 30 from Roma in the summer. Doubled our money now, Mahrez wants away, its a lot of money to turn down, although i think he is worth at least 75mill. I would like to see us get the 75 at minimum, and then play Gray and give him a real run in the side.
  10. Andy King

    Looks like Swansea on loan until end of season. Good move for him. He needs to play as will not get any football here with our current centre mids. Hopefully we have some deal if he helps keep swansea up there is a clause where we get paid more.
  11. Slimani to Newcastle

    Good deal all round. Slimani needs to play, if he plays well which i think he will, we can get more money for him in the summer window, or he comes back with more confidence and plays better for us starting next year.
  12. Best Away Day

    Previously - Grimsby away, Impey sent off, down to 10 and then Muzzy goes and scores the winner with one of the best goals in our clubs history. Recent times, 1-0 away win at Palace, the day actually felt we would win the league. Fans stayed for a while after final whistle singing were gonna win the league. Still get goosebumps now from the youtube clips.
  13. Steve Howard v leeds and Albrighton v Seville
  14. Slimani

    He has improved as you say. I just think for 30 million he should be able to get the ball under control wit his first touch or his lay off should be accurate. Too many times it goes away from him and he loses the ball. I think he will be a decent striker in the Prem if he gets a run of games. Surprisingly, he is not even on bench today so potentially he will be moving on.
  15. Slimani

    I lived in Portugal during Slimani time there. He was as you say a very good striker. However there are only pretty much 4 decent sides in the league (The big 3 and Braga ). His goal record can never be questioned and he was the best striker in Portugal during his final season, for me. He does have a terrible first touch though. But I don't think he has been given a fair chance, he is never going to start ahead of Vardy so at best he will get 10 minutes a game when Vards is fit. Never easy to get confidence when doing that. Look at Lacazzette all his confidence from start of season has gone and he plays far more than Slimani. Against Huddersfield at home Slimani was very good. Did everything we would want a target man striker to do, his finish was superb. Imagine if Kane / Sanchez or Hazard scored with a finish like that MOTD and pundits would never stop talking about it. With a good run in the team he would be a decent prem striker capable of doing well for any team 8th or below. Difficulty for us is he cost a lot of money so to have him on the bench and playing little does not make sense. To recoup close to what we paid will probably be the best for both Leicester and Slimani where he will play more regularly.
