    Puel’s arrogance (or blindness).

    Puel doesn't come across as arrogant or blind,but the defensive decision to bring in the third midfielder yesterday strikes me as lacking in ambition.We need to play to our own strengths with quick movement as we saw only last week against Watford. A week later Albrighton is back on the bench, Diabate had a run in midweek for no clear reason in a game where Fulham were there for the taking,and Iheanacho is playing on his own again woefully short of confidence.When we start worrying about other teams rather than playing fast forward looking football we are not going to win.Having said all this most pundits thought we would lose by 2 clear goals,just a shame we didn't make them work a bit harder for it.

    Helicopter crash

    Vichai has been a wonderful owner of this club and has treated the fans as members of his family.His contribution and commitment to the club has been second to none.I cannot remember a negative comment about the owners on this forum even in difficult times .If our fears are confirmed he will be hugely missed and our thoughts are with him ,his close family and of course anyone else lost in this terrible accident.
  3. All managers coming in so close to a title winning season are to some extent on a hiding to nothing Add to that the inconsistency in performances with brilliant half hour spells in games against United,Arsenal and Liverpool which we ultimately lose just adds to the frustration.I think we have the core of a very good young side but overall lack stamina and decent options on the bench. The managers future will depend on the next 4 or 5 games non of which will be easy but pressure will be on to get results.I hope he can turn things around but my gut feeling is that he will be gone by Christmas

    Leicester 1- Everton 2 post match thread.

    Teams with pace have worked us out, done their preparation, and we have looked vulnerable at the back particularly on the central/right side in just about every home game this season .Not sure it is just starting slowly I think some nerves have crept in and it seems to be a recurring issue discussed after every match. For some reason Maddison was quiet today and I believe when he was at Norwich he had a spell on the wing and was less effective.Juggling him and Nacho for the no 10 role is not easy but it was not working today.Tactically some changes are going to be enforced and others needed.Thought Chilwell was our best player and Ricardo took his goal.well and for about 15 minutes in the second half we looked great and in command so not all negatives.Heads dropped after the sending off. Everton deserved it overall,we could have been 2 or 3 down early on although we had our chances Still frustrated though after the decent previous week and not hopeful about the Arsenal game. I

    Maddison named in England squad

    Widely reported on twitter that Maddison is in the squad following on the footsteps of Maguire last season. I think it says a lot about the recruitment and philosophy of the club. Really need to push on this season for a place in Europe to keep our excellent squad moving forward together

    Nacho man assist appreciation thread

    Deserved his standing ovation when he came off yesterday. I think he is under rated the goal was more difficult than it looked and the assist showed quick thinking . He can have a role alongside Vardy and Maddison. The guys on MOTD were impressed.

    Harvey Barnes - West Brom (loan)

    Highlights from last night scored a superb goal and some brilliant runs/assists.9.5/10 in Birmingham Mail. I know this is Championship but surely we could find a place in our squad which has midfield overload and limited options up front.Can we bring him back in January?

    Ricardo Pereira

    Struggled to stop crosses coming in ,often out of position, could have conceded 2 penalties.Bit worried about his positional sense, I know Simpson had his critics but that was his strength and he always got blocks in. We will more cover even against Huddersfield.Hopefully will go 3 at the back perhaps with Soyuncu to add pace to Maguire/Evans and but that formation has not happened yet so Amartey may be in See Ricardo as a decent midfielder with a good engine and he can be great to watch going forward but not sure he is a wing back and there are better choices at full back

    Nacho man assist appreciation thread

    Surprised we don't have a 3 5 2 thread! Nacho won't have a chance to develop without this and Vardy cannot work alone particularly against the bigger defenders We are playing a far too open game and I don't think any 2 at centre back would have coped with so little support from the wing backs and other team members yesterday - to be honest Morgan and Maguire could both have been sent off
  10. Bit worried about the Puel interview post match.We have looked vulnerable at the back all season even in the games we won.Needs more than concentration to fix it.Unless we play 3 at the back I think there will be problems. Pressure will be on against Huddersfield and you can see us getting done on the counter attack
  11. Excellent and well deserved.Will Chilwell be tasked to stop Shaqiri? Baptism of fire but I think he will be OK and Gray should add a bit of creativity up front. Great opportunity and potential for 3 LCFC players on the pitch for England.Has that ever happened before?

    Our Internationals 2018/19

    Thought Chilwell might have a chance for the Ashley Young spot Probably a bit too early for him or Maddison but I think one or both will get there in the next 12 months

    Vardy retires from playing for England

    I would think Jamie must have been very frustrated over the summer and even when he has been in the team he rarely gets the service that Kane and others have.Probably the right decision in the long term.A friend of mine added that his style of play suits Leicester more than England and I agree.Of course we are perhaps not the counter attacking side that we were with a bit more possession and passing but hopefully if we can keep the pace/tempo up Vardy will have a good future with us.

    Namplys Mendy

    Could make a case for MOTM against Wolves. Puel likes him and it looks a different player now he is fit.Don't think he will be going anywhere.

    Wolves H Post Match Thread 2-0

    Think it comes under serious foul play rather than violent conduct but outcome is the same.Does the match against Fleetwood count as one of the matches or it it 3 premier league games as a suspension?
