  1. I personally agree with that. Think everyone can see the weaker areas of the team and it's just a case of what the club can do with incomings balancing the need for players to move on. I just don't see us conclusively addressing the issues in this window, rather than believing they aren't there.
  2. Great to see Chilwell kick on from the last international break and further stake his claim to be first choice left back. Given he has 4 caps to his name, he looks very comfortable and assured on the international stage He's every right to be picked above Shaw in the current squad so hopefully he starts again against Croatia
  3. Think that answers all questions for people hoping for signings. I can see one player being added if someone of real quality becomes available but it will, again, be a window dictated by our need to prioritise outgoings. How much Vichai's passing affects the business done is really the question overhanging that because the club might feel it is inappropriate to move certain players on in light of this.
  4. More good experience for Chilwell - he's excelled himself in these opening few appearances for England. He was outstanding in Seville and played well again last night. Now Vardy has called time on his international days, it's very exciting for us to see the likes of Chilwell, Maddison and Gray getting in amongst it alongside Maguire. It's also very refreshing to see Southgate really experimenting with the youth available. Giving opportunities to young talent like the above, Alexander-Arnold and Sancho is really looking like it might pay off rather than letting the likes of Livermore and Jones just pick up the leftover squad spots.

    Ok two questions regards Top

    Even if two rang true and you can only own one team, they could also move one of the team's in Apichet's name as he is heavily involved at King Power and with Leicester. It'll all be fine and Top seems pretty determined to make a success of it and do his father proud.

    Claudio to Fulham

    Not sure how I feel about this. I'm absolutely buzzing to see him back, Claudio is the absolute man. I hope he does well and keeps Fulham up. I enjoy the BBC Sport news updates with Ranieri quotes in very much as well. Just feel there was a lot to be said for him leaving the PL for good as a champion when we parted company with him. His call though, I just hope for his sake he does well now.

    January Transfer Window Thoughts & Rumours

    I agree with re Slimani not excelling in Turkey but think he's scored a few in European competitions to go with his league goal. Not brilliant either way though tbf.

    Rachid Ghezzal signs.

    Thought Ghezzal had his best game for us this weekend. He looked better in the central position where he was involved more in the link up play rather than driving forward out wide. I especially liked his hold up play and ability to bring other players into the game. He's also got a good work rate, is a threat from long range shots and has a decent delivery. Obviously Puel said the Albrighton sub was injury management, hence Ghezzal going wide but thus far he's looked quite lumbersome and awkward out wide. He's a strange build for a winger. He doesn't inspire much confidence to knock the ball past and beat a man for pace like a Lloyd Dyer type winger, nor does have that graceful style where he's going to beat a man for skill and class like Riyad. He's kind of inbetween the two and that seems to have made settling in difficult as he seems quite predictable.

    January Transfer Window Thoughts & Rumours

    Think this is very valid to consider. Vichai's passing will not leave Top, Apichet and the board at King Power or the club totally scratching their heads, but it is definitely an emotional time of uncertainty, certainly from a King Power corporate perspective with the Duty Free contract renewal approaching. I'm not saying that the accident will hinder the club plans long-term as everyone has expressed their intent to carry on Vichai's dream, but I just don't think immediately we will see a major January investment. That's before you consider the silly prices in the market, the desire to keep the squad together and unified towards a common goal and half the fanbase, in my opinion incorrectly, calling for a change in manager. We'll have to see. I can see us adding one player in January. Originally thought it would be a RB, possibly Clyne, but Ricardo has improved in the last few games so now I'm not sure. As for Loftus-Cheek, I'd take him here in a heart beat but only on a permanent or a loan with an option to buy. I don't like idea of loaning from the big PL clubs now we seek to be top 8 regulars ourselves.
  10. Ofc West Ham are interested in Nasri. Made for each other

    Matchday Programme (Burnley)

    Spent the morning reading it. Some touching compilations from a series of players, managers, senior staff and local journalists. Brilliantly put together and another classy touch from the club.

    Jonny Evans

    I thought Evans played very well yesterday. He was calm and composed in defending and decent at spreading the play from the back. Whilst we've worked several very good chances in the Cardiff and Burnley games, we understandably haven't been red hot in attack. However, to keep two clean sheets shows some real character and resilience. Think Evans has more than played his part in that with some good displays, as has Ricardo who has looked a lot better at RB since Amartey's injury.

    Sing for Claude

    Given everything that's happened off the pitch, regardless of the standard of the opposition, 4 points out of 6 is a very credible return. You could also argue we were worthy of the win yesterday but it just wasn't to be. Claude has conducted himself with composure, respect and class over the last few weeks. Any criticism aimed at him over the Cardiff and Burnley games is grossly unfair.

    Saturday 10th November- Walk for Vichai

    Weird feelings ahead of today. Very much looking forward to being part of the crowd, both in the walk and at the KP, and giving Vichai the send off he deserves and celebrate his life and fantastic achievements with us but an underlying feeling that today is going be very difficult and emotional to take in at different points. Delighted to hear the news that Pearson, Ranieri, Shakespeare and Cambiasso are all returning today. Brought a smile to my face.
