    Says all that needs to be said today. Very sad news. #RIPAretha

    That first bit sounds like a Welsh road sign.

    Whatever it is mate, I'm just glad we're this side of the Midlands pronouncing it and not with a thick Dudley accent or a Geordie one, for that matter. I'm just going to go with Caglar and hope for the best.

    Challah Swaninjah is what I made that out to be, sounds like some new Star Wars character... no way the tannoy guy is getting that out on a match day.

    Mirror madness?

    Henry not getting the Villa job after be a shoe-in will have made him re-evaulate his options. I think after how we played last night, Claude deserves a fair crack of the whip, but we know from the past how these things alter. If he was sacked, Henry would be a very good bet, but I'd rather us not keep chopping and changing, as it does not help us build long term. We need stability as a club both on and off the pitch, a five year plan as such. Whatever happens - we need to run with something, long term. Be that Puel or Henry. I'm sure I'm not the only one fed up of having a new manager each year.

    Man U 2-,Leicester 1 post match thread.

    General mood must be like us all - gutted we lost that - but how well did we do? Maddison is one hell of a player. Ricardo looks very good, too. Nacho was unlucky not to get a penalty, Gray was positive, Chilwell as well (just needs to improve his crossing!!) Silva and Ndidi did well, room for improvement - yes - but still, composed overall. Kasper, bar the goals, nigh on faultless and that save against Lukaku was another gem. Ghezzal looked like he could have a skill or two in his locker when he came on. Iborra, not on long enough, but we know what he can do and Vardy, got another one - could have scored the chance before, but that was the least we deserved. Wes, well we all know his flaws now so I won't dwell on that too much, but Claude does need to be brave enough to drop him and play Evans alongside Maguire when fully-match-fit. Amartey was by far and away the weakest link and I would rather see Ricardo play at RB, but on a night of positives, let's not be too hard on the boys as a whole. I'm very encouraged and keep that style going into the rest of the season and we will get into the Europa League.

    Is it time for a New Club Captain...

    The current order goes, 1. Wes 2. Kasper 3. Vardy Kasper, I think, is the right choice but Maguire - long term - is a no brainer.

    Brilliant video but that music... it's like being back at Uni again, and not in a good way.

    How did we do?

    I don't have the official stats to hand, either, but I bet the average age of our first team must be around 23-24. What a promising sign.

    Vardy just signed new four year contract

    SSN - Jamie Vardy has signed a new 4 year deal!!!

    Also, well done to Claude. I have been amongst one of the many who had my doubts at times last year but he deserves massive credit for some of the players we've got in this window. Especially Maddison - he is going to be a class act.

    When you think about the squad we now have, we could play about 3 systems, my personal favourite would be: Kasper Ricardo - Soyuncu - Maguire - Evans - Chilwell. Ndidi - (Silva/Iborra) Maddison Vardy - Iheananco (But as I say, we could play a 4-4-2, a 4-3-3 or even a 4-5-1 away from home. Options, at last!).

    Brilliant news! Great window.

    God they're salty, aren't they? Never been that keen on Utd anyway but I'd love it if he stays with us, plays against the odds on Friday and scores the winner. José's face would be a picture.

    I still don't think Maguire will leave tomorrow. I don't doubt for one second they'll try their best in the morning and Sky will stir it as best they can, but we only have to go through one more day, and he can't go anywhere in our league until at least January. This time next year, if we haven't pushed for Europe - maybe, but not until that has come to pass.
