  1. Iheanacho

    Just doesn't work with Vardy. Nearly no service from the Midfield. He works for Nigeria (as does Musa) but we do not seem to have a clue. The problem is the plan and coaching, not the player.
  2. Premier League, 2017-2018 Season Thread

    It is indeed, as we know very well...
  3. Crap as we are, we are not Palace! Second worst side in the PL possibly...
  4. Premier League, 2017-2018 Season Thread

    Being a Crystal Palace fan today looks pretty grim.
  5. Bournemouth Post Match 0-0

    One positive is that the players are still playing for Shakey. He is not a bad coach, but does fall flat as manager. Whether he would stay as Assistant, who knows, but we need a new manager. Or big Nige back!
  6. Bournemouth Away Match Thread

    King is a footballing god. I will not hear a word against him.

    Don't we always draw with Bournemouth?
  8. It is also worth noting that we are scoring goals. Indeed for goals scored we are 7th in the table. Clearly we need for the defence to be tighter, and for that we probably need a better midfield. Looking at how things are going, we will be mid table at season end. Pearson style 352 would be better IMO. Shakey needs to get his sub's right. We finished 424, and if that was ever a good plan then teams would start that way. Shakey seems to try to keep players happy with them, rather than whatever is needed in the game. He has too big of squad due to over recruitment, apart from CM.
  9. Carabao 4th round draw - Leeds (H)

    Happy remembering Lilian Nalis's scremer in a 4 nil victory at the Walkers stadium
  10. Ben 7 clean sheet and surprisingly little to do. Poor kicking. Amartey 5 what is his best position? Morgan 8 back to his best Dragovic 7 good intro, not good with the ball at his feet. Chilwell 7 getting better am the time Albrighton 5 poor first half, better second, ran himself ragged Iborra 5 Played possession football with short passes like still in Spain, lost possession. Not bad debut overall. Ndidi 6 Overrun first half, better second Gray 6 good at times, particularly second half Slimani 6 pedestrian and isolated first half. Cracking goal. Ulloa 3 terrible at everything apart from defending corners. Should be his last game. Shinnji 9 changed the game, great goal and put Slim through for second. Choudhury 6 an extra point for the hair! Shakespeare 4 No way was Ulloa and Slim going to work, and setup too narrow exposing our wings. Game changing sub with Okazaki may not have been his choice. Liverpool 5 rampant first half, but did they have a shot on goal second half? Will be a different team on Saturday, but so will we. We can beat them.
  11. Huddersfield Away 1-1 post match

    With Cambiasso it only worked 352. I thought Iborra was pretty good pre season. No panic yet...
  12. Huddersfield Away 1-1 post match

    Huddersfield will struggle away, but will do well at home. They will comfortably stay up.
  13. Huddersfield Away 1-1 post match

    We stole that point. Slimani needs a rocketing.
  14. Demari Gray's Attitude

    He looked good today, several good runs, and our penalty was won by him as much as Vardy. He also got back and defended. Credit where it is due.
  15. Demari Gray's Attitude

    When Gray has started for us, he has not really performed. He wasn't great in the League cup start. His best bits of games for us have been when he has been subbed on. I think that at present he lacks the tactical sense and team spirit to start, but is a great impact sub, either to change a game where we are dropping points, or to stretch the defence of another team that is pushing for an equaliser. I would like to see him subbed on earlier at about 60 min, for Mahrez, and to start against Liverpool in the cup.
