  1. Stoke post match 1-1

    Correct. We have no leaders on the pitch at present.
  2. Stoke post match 1-1

    Yes it seems that way. I was one who was underwhelmed at his appointment. After the usual 6 game new manager bounce maybe the 🐓 have come home to roost. Totally clueless performances now born from clueless selections and downright poor management. Mahrez benched for half a game for going on strike, and Wes and Simmo being brought back in when their replacements have done very well are other matters which don’t engender a good or fair team ethic I would have thought. How many times did Simpson pass backwards. He’s not up to a passing game, so why select him when it’s only going to slow down our passages of play. Same comments apply re: Wes. Vardy one of the PL’s best strikers, was given no service whatsoever which is an absolute travesty. The whole game plan should revolve around getting the ball to him in decent positions. Him on his own up front, at home against relegation threatened side is a joke. Silva: we need creativity from the midfield. That was never going to come from the two defensively minded pairing we played, but to not play him at all, is very odd. People saying Puel should be allowed to bring in his own players. Why on earth should that happen when he’s proving not to be up to the task? As someone said to me yesterday; the sum of the team is less than its collective parts. That is very true at the moment which can only mean the manager is not doing his job properly.

    Piss off. We want ant better than this ffs. Where is the ambition with that attitude?
  4. Stoke post match 1-1

    This. There is the negative play of Shakespeare which was obvious. This type of football we witnessed today is the ‘sheep in wolfs clothing’ of negative football; yes we are not defending the edge of our area for most of the game, but we have played one of the weakest teams in the division, at home, with Vards the lone striker for most of the game. 1 up front with loads of possession, most in our half and creating nothing is: NEGATIVE, DEFENSIVE TACTICS. Puel should be focusing on on how to create chances for one of the leagues top strikers in Vardy. This should be the starting point for the game’s strategy. Puel is orchestrating games so Vardy is playing off scraps. Totallly arse about face and doomed to failure I think. Being marginally better than a really shit manager in Shakespeare is not enough.
  5. The OH Leuven Thread

    I did finish with ‘each to there own’ which seems a concise version of what is above.
  6. The OH Leuven Thread

    Okay 😳
  7. The OH Leuven Thread

    Personally I’m not bothered what Nige does now he’s not at our club.
  8. The OH Leuven Thread

    Strange as it may seem I am well aware of the connections, but we are supporters of LCFC, and this forum is related to that. We don’t support a club foreign or otherwise just because it’s Top’s new plaything, anymore than we would blindly back all of the racehorses that Mr Vic has bought, surely? You are right actually...let’s have other threads along those lines. How about: “Mr Vics Nags” Or another entitled “Mr Tops newly purchased waistcoats” 🤔 Each to their own

  10. The OH Leuven Thread

    Indeed. I should never ever have looked at it in the first place.
  11. The OH Leuven Thread

    I don’t understand why this is a thread. Leuven is a club in a foreign country.... this is a Leicester City forum. 🤷🏻‍♂️ 28 pages of irrelevant shit
  12. Morgan or Dragovic?

    If we want to play this passing game out from the back then it can’t be Wes, just as it can’t be Simpson at right back. Our display against Chelsea away may prove a point, for progress in this area. We would not have dominated that game as we did with Wes and Simpson simply because we would not have retained possession to the extent we did.
  13. Vardy showing no signs of slowing down, apparently.

    Those stats would suggest you are quite wrong though, even though I accept all chances are not created equally. His conversation rate is massively up on the title winning season. Edit: check out the other Vardy thread which has some very interesting stats. This season 30% shot conversion rate, 77% ‘big chance’ conversion rate which is the best of any striker in the PL.
  14. Vardy miles too good for City

    You don’t think that Jamie Vardy is one of the better PL strikers then? I have to disagree. Whats is Lukaku’s conversion rate. By that I mean chances to goals? (I don’t know the answer btw). Vardy’s over the last two seasons is about 1/3 wiith 13 goals against your guys 12 in this season so far. Lukaku plays in a team who create many more chances than we do, so this is the only fair comparison I would have thought? Edit: would you believe it...I can now back up my anecdotal claims with facts direct from the PL. JV best ‘big chance’ conversion rate in the PL this season at 77%, with a shot conversion rate second only to fat Rooney (really?) at 29%. Lukuku? ...out with the washing.
  15. Fuchs or Chilwell

    That does seem to be true
