    What is it that we're missing?

    Is this a serious question or a wind up? Or maybe rhetorical?

    How Was Your Day?

    Bad day in Boyjones household. Having to hang up my boots at the age of 66, after 50 years of competitive adult football. Had set my heart on playing until I was 70, but my heart has given me a few nudges recently, saying don't take the piss. If I was Billy no mates I would carry on playing, but still got a missus of 46 years in tow, so owe her a bit of consideration. Really despondent about it, but at least I got to play in the same team as my four lads for 20 years, so I count that as a blessing. Just hope that some of my seven grandsons turns out to be talented, so I can watch them develop. Never played a really decent standard, had informal trials with a city scout in 1968, but he said although I had talent, I was as slow as shit and too skinny. Strangely enough, played my best football in my late 30's in the Lincolnshire Senior leagues - real hard school; our Sunday team had three conference players in it, (two Boston United, who had played at Wembley in The FA Trophy final and one from Blyth Spartans) I refused to play on Saturdays as would rather watch the city. I just love Leicester. That chapter of of my life has closed now, but had recently bought a new pair of boots for Β£75!!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ need to see if my lads can use them!

    Are the losses easier to take since the title win?

    I hate losing, but what's really gets my goat is that 90% of losses we have chances to avoid defeat. I get more upset, such as last Saturday, with the last minute missed point blank header, earlier Chilwell missing the target, Jamie missing an easy dink over the keeper - those sort of incidents are what play in my brain for the next two or three days. Especially when the opposition play at best average like Everton.

    Iborra

    We need him back to challenge Ndidi, who to my mind hasn't come back from Russia in any sort of form. Iborra is quality and strong in the air - seems just to lack the energy and pace of Ndidi, Maddison, Choudhury and even Silva. Still his nipper has been born on a good day of the yearπŸ˜‰

    Southampton post match 1-2 Win

    Sensible comments. Nobody complained when we won five matches 1-0 around March 2016 playing mostly rubbish! (Norwich, Newcastle, Saints at home, Watford, Palace away) Results are the key, points in the bag now mean we have a bit of extra freedom against Liverpool next week. Last minute winners mean we all have a great weekend, as Ted intimated, just enjoy the moment - we'll have enough down times - so enjoy wins when they come along. If you can't, what's the point?

    Vardy red is not a sending off

    If all you bleeding heart liberals think that was a red card, you are what is wrong with the game. The opponent only got hurt because he bottled the tackle and then rolled around a la Naymar. Yes Vardy went in hard, but he is a proper player, go in half hearted and you end up getting hurt. I realise in 2018 that they are trying to make football a non contact sport, but if you make everybody like Nacho who shirks every tackle, then we night as widely play netball. Ok, I am from a different era, but all you do gooders are killing the game.

    Man U 2-,Leicester 1 post match thread.

    Fair enough. But we could and should have won that game. Man Utd were very poor and we let them off the hook. Just my opinion, but don't like Amartey at full back. Because of Puels insistence that every full back must be able to attack, we have dumped our two professional full backs, Simpson and Fuchs and IMO their replacements will be caught out of position on a regular basis as happened last night.

    Man U 2-,Leicester 1 post match thread.

    Gutted personally, because if Nacho, Amartey and Ndidi had turned up we could have won that game. Thought all three were well off the pace. Nacho's penalty shout only came about because of his poor touch taking the ball towards the defender. Was impressed with Gray in his improved defending, positional play, a threat going forward. Also thought Maddison played really well, particularly his keenness to drive forward. Ricardo will prove a good signing. Kasper did well and Maguire / Wes, well average performance. Chilwell and Silva so frustrating, but all told there were some encouraging signs. I don't think we would have scared any of the other teams, but should have enough to improve on last year. Think we we will have to get used to Puel's selections, because I will be surprised if many people will ever agree with the team he puts out. Tonight, playing Amartey and leaving out Vardy seemed weird to me.
  12. Yes thought Lille were far too physical for a pre season "friendly" - some nasty tackles flying in. Maddison is class, thought Chilwell had a good game and Ricardo beginning to grow on me. Wasn't impressed with him initially. Benny had one of his better games and if Nacho can learn to shield a ball and toughen up he could be a really top player. Kasper pulled off a couple of very good saves. Baby Squad must be in their late 60's, 70's now - bit of an overhyped myth really. Knew a couple to nod to 40 years ago and just ordinary lads. We missed our ferry last night but in truth would have had to have had everything go our way to catch it on time. Next couple were fully booked, but we got a no show 45 mins later and had their docket. We think it was another city supporters coach. Did make me laugh when we were locked in after the game and started singing "we voted Brexit, we want to go home" different from the usual "Lille is a shi@hole, etc"

    How Was Your Day?

    The old boy is still alive. 66 next month, but scored a late equaliser in our 6-aside league game tonight. Outdoor on a 40% full side pitch, we came from 2-0 down against top of the table bunch of fast fit 18 year olds. Loads of you younger fans will probably be bonking tonight like it's going out of fashion, but you won't beat the feeling of putting the ball in the back in the back of the net.

    RUDKIN - How Does He Keep His Job?

    More to the point, what actually is his job? What value and insight does he bring to the club? It would be interesting to know.
