    New training ground approved

    To think, we've gone from nearly going out of business to winning the English Title, Champions League Away Days and now this. 'The Fairytale' keeps on getting better and better...

    So many "puel out" calls from fans, so who replaces him?

    Quique Sánchez Flores.

    Bournemouth 4- Leicester 2 post match thread.

    I think my response on the Radio following the full time whistle was somewhat measured in comparison to what I really wanted to say. Palace was bad enough, but this is (at least) the second shower we've played away from home, in less than 6 months. Have we improved in the 40 odd games since he was appointed? That's what must be asked by the board. EDIT: His post match interview again is the same crap again. "Good balance" No Claude - it wasn't, we lost!!

    Points target for the next 11 games ?

    We've not beaten Bournemouth since their rise to the Premier League so I'd be happy with another point there. Huddersfield at home, we should be winning that, so ask again after those two games are out of the way.

    Leicester 1- Liverpool 2 post match thread.

    I am trying to be measured after today, but the one thing above all else which really annoyed me, when Chilwell was injured and went down - why did he bring on Amartey for Maddison instead of Fuchs for Chilwell? We are trying to get a point at home and that one thing sent out totally the wrong message to the rest of the team. I confess the language I used at the time in the ground was far from the diplomatic tenor I usually use on here (including this post).

    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.
