  1. Ex-Leicester City player news

    Kermo is decent.
  2. Musa - Opinions so far

    I agree with you about his footballing ability or lack of it. Can’t blame him for seeing out his contract, he’s not going to be on this type of money anywhere else.
  3. Ex-Leicester City player news

    Looks like Drinkwater has had a hair transplant.
  4. The Iborra Thread

    Not having Silva until January might be a blessing in disguise for the long term. I doubt Iborra would’ve featured much if we had got him in time, and he’s proving himself to be far better than a back-up player.
  5. Bastian Schweinsteiger

    Fair one, it’s a vicious circle I suppose. Will they ever be ready without the experience, and will they ever get the experience they need.
  6. Bastian Schweinsteiger

    You can’t play youngsters who aren’t ready. It’ll do us and them no good!
  7. Iheanacho

    Come on, you can loan players, but when a player is sought after it’s not going to happen is it. It’s a fair way of signing fringe players but to bring in anyone who another club is interested in it’s not going to be a realistic strategy is it? Edit; Should’ve multi-quoted but didn’t.
  8. Iheanacho

    So never buy a player you haven’t had on loan? That’s one way to attract some top talent isn’t it!
  9. Iheanacho

    Rudkin prefers cash!
  10. Iheanacho

    I don’t think you can test the players out before you buy them.
  11. Daniel Amartey

    I’m fairly sure he’s being asked to play a game more complex than ‘don’t let the cross in.’ Like @Captain... said previously, with our big lumbering centre halves (Morgan and Huth), who are good in the air, it’s preferable to allow the winger out wide and away from the central channel. In fact, this is taught at most levels of football above the kids amateur game and Sunday League. I understand he still allows the cross but to block crosses a defender has to commit much like a tackle/challenge. Standing up and not diving in is better than getting skinned and letting the winger to cut into the box.
  12. Leeds Post Match Thread

    Agreed. Maguire was assured on the ball playing it out calmly in tight spaces with confidence. I know he’s a ball player but it’s obvious he’s being trusted/instructed to do so to keep possession. He may not have been at his best but with a new CB partner it was never going to be a seamless display. Iborra unsurprisingly looked very good against average opposition. Amartey did himself no harm. Slimani has a lot to offer as I’m sure we all realise, if he’s deployed in the right capacity. Hamer, confident... not sure Kasper would have stopped their goal. Dragovic, had he struggled tonight I’d have had serious doubts about him. He took everything in his stride and had a good game. Andy King was Andy King. The rest did enough not to be lowered down the pecking order. Riyad, walked on, passed one into the corner. Class and a swagger only someone of his ability can have.
  13. Premier League, 2017-2018 Season Thread

    I’m not really sure what you’re getting at there is relevant. Bayern must have seen something in him to spend that amount of money. A high fee isn’t his fault and I think it’s a credit to him to go to Swansea for game time and to improve when he could have stayed at Bayern and sat the season out. Your assessment seems unfair. This.
  14. Premier League, 2017-2018 Season Thread

    After a quick Wiki lookup... They paid €35m and he’d only played 24 times for Benfica. He is only 20, he could become a very good player yet.
  15. Premier League, 2017-2018 Season Thread

    A few of us said it before he’d even kicked a ball in the PL. I watched a Bayern pre-season game and he was by far the worst player on the pitch.
