  1. I've always thought that the MLS had a decent system with spending in terms of wages. Of their 30 man squad, something like 25 of them have to fit into a league wide salary cap of a certain amount. The other 5 players in each team are free to be paid whatever the club wants.....
  2. That statement could have been used for Maguire before he went too to be honest. Man City, Chelsea and Man Utd could all use a LB and if they think they could get England's starter, they will bite
  3. It's his hip that worries me most. It was reoccurring at Celtic and he played quite a bit with it. Doesn't seem to get a full season in for whatever reason and is a constant sick note for the national team.
  4. A stranger that's saw more than enough of both players to have an informed opinion on the matter as opposed to yours that is more than likely based on having saw Tierney once or twice.
  5. A fully fit KT is most definately NOT a downgrade on Ben Chilwell. I promise you that. Ofcourse the main issue is Kieran Tierney is never fully fit these days.
  6. Ability wise there is no doubt I would take him but I'm getting increasingly worried about his injury record. I could easily see him being one of these players that retires before their prime because his body can't keep up with his talent.
  7. To be fair, I'm from the west coast of Scotland and I've been a Leicester fan since the age of 13. The most common reasons for supporting a team are through location and family ties, sure. I was brought io a Rangers fan. All my family supported them and all were season ticket holder. I was attending games before I could walk. They were my team. Leicester were my "English team" because I was taken to games whilst visiting family in the City every year but as I grew older, I started realising what being a Rangers fan meant. I sang the songs that the adults in the next seat to me sang, I wore the cool looking orange and purple ulster scarves. It wasn't until I got older that I realised what I was singing and what I was wearing, i still supported Rangers for a few years afterwards but i eventually decided that that I didnt want to be associated with a team and fanbase like that so Leicester went from being my second team to my only team. My point is, there are many different reasons for being a fan of a particular team. Sure, I may only get to one or two games a season most years but that's only because attending a game for me is hundreds of pounds. We should accept all fans and not "reserve sarcasm" for any of them. That's how we grow as a club.
  8. I hope West Ham go down. I've never new a set of fans to be so quick to turn on their team. Their home games turn very quickly into away games if the start slow.
  9. The main problem with VAR is the rules don't compliment it. One of the main issues with VAR this year has been offside but currently the rules say that if any part of your body that can be used to score a goal is offside (even marginally) then your offside but people blame VAR when it picks up on someone's pubes being offside. Hand balls too. There are so many different rules that can be interpreted in different ways. Ball to hand, unintentional, hand not in a natural position etc. There is always going to be inconsistencies when there are so many variations of the rules. Another issue is the term "clear and obvious". All that phrase does is put into question when VAR can be used and when it can't. It just confuses the situation. Why does it have to be clear and obvious? If VAR picks up on something the ref got wrong then correct it. Simple, don't over complicate it. The rules need to be amended for the use of VAR in order for it to work efficiently. To be honest, they should have been simplified a long time ago to install some consistency into referee performances.
  10. Who would have thought at the start of the season that most people on here (myself included) would be disappointed that Ihneacho wasn't starting against Chelsea?
  11. Just out of curiosity, who in your opinion what players currently in the EPL are top 6 level wingers?
  12. Looks like a week off from this site for me. Poor performance and bad result but some of you are acting like Craig Levein has just rolled up with Mo Sylla in the front seat, De Vries and Rab Douglas in the back with Sol Bamba in the boot.
  13. Some really poor performances tonight. Chilwell was poor. Perez was non existent. Maddison was frustrated. Tielemans was dreadful. All credit to villa though, they defended brilliantly and got what they came for, the tie is still alive.
  14. My first thought was Chilwell on the wing but a back 3 makes sense too. Either way, it's a good line up. I'm pretty sure Newcastle play a back 3 so 2 strikers is the only real option but I 5hink this is good for Ian. His confidence is coming back and i think he will respond well to a run in the team.
  15. My first thought was Chilwell on the wing but a back 3 makes sense too. Either way, it's a good line up.
  16. We did but are you gonna sit there and say you were comfortable the last 5 minutes?
  17. Fair play. I didn't give us much of a chance when I saw the team sheet but we got away with it and managed to rest some players too. It worked out but was a huge call from BR.
  18. You're actually gonna question the loyalty of fans who sh@t it when we put out one of the worst teams we have available to us when we only JUST managed to get away with it against a team near the foot of the table who rested 7 players themselves? Get a grip.
  19. I'm honestly shocked. Fair enough resting a few players but this is drastic. Rodgers is clearly smoking crack this christmas.
  20. The reaction on here to these clowns is worse than what they actually did. There is absolutely NO place for this in football. It's not "banter" and the whataboutery going on like "but but liverpool fans do it" is absolutely laughable. I was taken to my first Leicester game when I was about 13/14. Up until that point I was a born and bread Rangers fan (I'm from the west coast of Scotand) and I continued with rangers as my first team and Leicester my second for a few years afterwards but the thing that drew me more towards Leicester as I got older was that it was generally all about football. It wasnt about religion or politics and that d!ckhead element in their fans was far less. I made the call to cut all ties with rangers when I was about 20 because they as a fanbase and club were something i didnt want to be associated with. I'm proud to be a Leicester fan, please dont excuse this sort of sh!te, that's what they do in glasgow.
  21. Or maybe some folk just got too far ahead of THEMSELVES. Start of the season, most folk were talking about top 6. 10/15 good games and those same people are talking about us being title contenders, lose two games and we are mid table? It's hilarious.
  22. Bad result and embarrassing performance but do you know what's even worse? The reaction by some of our members on the match thread. "We nee to rebuild in january" " this squad needs serious investment" "Will be lucky yo finish 8th" We're Leicester fuching city, 10 points clear of 5th half way through the season on a two game losing spell from a pair of the best teams in europe. Some of you need to wind your fuching necks in.
  23. We look very sluggish and slow today.
  24. Absolutely delighted. Hopefully that means no more buy out clause!
  25. We need to reject all offers for him. I think that's what Brendan has always wanted. His ego wants to know that the club want/need him. Isn't that why he went to Reading? Because Watford were quick on accepting the compo? I'm sure it played it's part in him leaving Celtic too, he wants a club to fight for him. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't concerned about this though....
