  1. Iborra - lack of closeness within the squad

    He’s thinking like this before he has to spend a week training in ice and snow!
  2. A defence of Matty James

    Not saying much but James was named mom in one of the corporate lounges ......... maybe none of the other players would come upstairs!
  3. Attacking football - what happened?

    Teams won’t allow us to play like we did first half of Claudio’s first season. They cover the space for vardy to get into. it’s going to be tough at home and the absence of silva yesterday surprises me in that regard. anyway, we have 8 games to see how the manager works it out. If he looks like he isn’t then I suspect the owners won’t be shy about moving him on.
  4. Adrien Silva

    he obviously didn’t follow puel’s instructions ! it’s a very strange one. I can only think puel didn’t consider him physically strong enough for today’s fixture. In which case he should be playing next weekend but that will be a game where we don’t see much of the ball so will hardly be ideal for him.
  5. Short corners

    Imo, the whole point of having two players over the corner is that it drags an extra defender out of the box. If you have two defenders in front of you then unless a third attacking player makes himself available as an option near the corner of the box, you are simply setting up a two on two which relies on one of your players beating one of the defenders. if the opposition send two defenders out then put the corner straight into the box where you have an extra man than would be usual. If you are quick enough to take it before they can get their two out then by all means take it short.
  6. What retains Leicester from becoming top 6

    how long have you got .................
  7. Stoke post match 1-1

    I thought they showed commendable effort to try and pinch a winner late on. (Tbh, they had some decent opportunities) Pushing both centre backs up for late set pieces and commiting on the break. Worried how a possession based side like bournemouth will deal with us next week !
  8. Stoke (H) Match Thread

    The problem is both holding midfielders end up on the touchline - why James goes to support wilf all the way out there I’ve no idea - anyone else then fine but not your fellow cdm
  9. Stoke (H)..pre match thread.

    Sun in the eyes of the keeper defending the family stand end first half ???
  10. Stoke (H)..pre match thread.

    Need to win the toss today!
  11. Bars in Madrid.

    Careful in plaza mayor if you have a flare on you ..........
  12. Stoke (H)..pre match thread.

    Thought that for the first hour of the Swansea game silva wanted to play tight passing sequences and couldn’t really find a partner !! could be profitable if we can get those two together isolating the right side of their defence
  13. Stoke (H)..pre match thread.

    No crouch for them btw
  14. Stoke (H)..pre match thread.

    agree - need iborra to take that front post at set pieces. might swap gray for albrighton. would like to see silva in that okazaki hole as he seems to be capable of pressing like shinji does.
  15. Chelsea fa cup quarterfinals

    Was pleased to see giroud go there as we still had arsenal to play and he has a habit of scoring against us ....... bugger !
