  1. Put aside those from the title winning year and before - look at all the signings we've made since and see how many you'd say are good ones - Ndidi yes, Maddison yep - I wouldnt include Gray. Pereira agree, Maguire. But now lets look at the many signings we've made and the cost...
  2. 100%. We saw during the title winning year what a team could achieve. Look at Ferguson at United - everyone had to play their part in the squad and if anyone didn't meet expectations or got big time they were out - they had the big names of course but each player added something and worked for the group. In many ways it doesn't make sense to try and sign big time players, because we're fighting a losing battle against the top 6 - what we can do is be smart, be a unit and maximise facilities, science, youth etc. and grow in that way. I look at the likes of Gray, Ghezzall, Iheanacho, Slimani and just see your standard Premier League ego without real talent or consistency. Look at Vardy - he worked for it, it was Pearson and the staff who trusted him. I'm not sure what the answer is, but we have lost the values we had a few years ago. People say we need a clear out, and we do, but the worrying thing is if we get rid of the likes of Morgan and the old guard, what are we left with in terms of leadership and that mentality - we then become like every other average side in the league, and it's very easy to drop down.
  3. No way - I'm the same, NP built the foundation of the club (of course along with Vichai and Top), the scouting, the sports science etc., so much of which appears to have fallen away. One of the simplest things that I think we've lost in that when NP was here they always said whoever they brought in needed to be the right fit for the group and with the right ethic/personality etc. You can see that in the majority of those we signed, even in the short term signings like Kevin Phillips. As soon as NP went, that mentality went, and the likes of Slimani etc. come in who anyone could see had a shite attitude. The core of the team all had that work ethic and spirit.
  4. Surely this is it for him now. If it takes until the end of the season to get a good manager in, we should wait but let's start planning
  5. I was a huge fan of paul dickov and les
  6. Long term vision is one thing - if you don't have buy in from those around you it means nothing. That includes the players and the fans, do either seem invested in it? The answer is no, there is something missing. This hasn't felt right for a long time now, it's going to end one way, whichever way you feel about it
  7. Hi guys, Does anyone know of a good tailor in or around Leicester for alterations to a suit I've already bought? It's a decent suit so need someone who knows what they're doing (and looking for a modern/close fit too). I've been to the tape measure in the arcade before, but not great, stitching came loose etc. cheers

    Puel - what about now

    Regardless of what is right or wrong he will go, he is not right for the club and never was. The number of questions and posts about him says that. He needs to go, and he will. He isn't a genius with some plan that just needs time to kick in. By the same token let's tear up the squad and start again. We are dated and sinking fast.
