    Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha has died at the age of 60

    There are no words to describe the tragedy that occurred on Saturday evening. Having just been to the ground and stood there empty and overwhelmed at the same time I have no idea how his family are coping. His legacy will go down in folklore as one of the greatest stories of all time. Rest in peace Vichai, we will all miss you x

    Leicester 1- Everton 2 post match thread.

    Haven’t been that angry walking away from the ground in a long time. I’ve always tried to support Puel as changes were needed and unfortunately I don’t think we can sack him. We are mid table and have some exhorting young players and after a year of his management we would get hammered for sacking him and I have no clue who we could attract. In conclusion I think we have to give him the season unless the wheels properly fall off. That being said it’s time for him to sack off old loyalties and play round pegs in round holes. If he’s brought Ricardo as a right back then play him there and develop him like he has Chilwell. If he’s brought Maddison to play number 10 then play him there and stop trying to shoe horn Ihenacho into the side. If he wants him to play and thinks he links play better than Vardy then play him upfront. Theres obviously some loyalty to him from the board so he might as well do it his way and stop trying to convert players who can’t play his way into something they aren’t. Frustrating old day.

    What a mess we are. I get the frustration at the playing style, I’m in that camp too but at some point we need a manager with the strength to make changes to the playing staff in terms of moving on the old guard and changing our style. Im not convinced Puel is the right man for that job but we have at least given him 6 months to assess the squad so he should (I bloody hope so anyway) have a recruitment plan in mind. If we sack him now it’ll no doubt take a few weeks to appoint a replacement. They then need to assess the squad and sign the players to suit their plans. With the World Cup and the window closing early that’s a very tight timescale to do that effectively. Personally im still in the keep Puel camp as sacking him just doesn’t give me any hope for an overhaul and positive transfer window that we desperately need. Fingers crossed for some positive football these last 4 games and some unity at the club.

    Swansea City (h) Post-Match 1-1

    Some lovely football in the first half and frustrating not to be further ahead at the break. We came out second half and took an age to get going which gave Swansea the impetus they needed to equalise. Poor marking but I want my keeper coming for inswinging balls into the 6 yard box. Too often this happens and as good as Kasper is at shot stopping this and free kick positioning is a real weakness. Silva was shot and needed to come off 5 minutes earlier. Unfortunately we didn’t have a lot of exciting options on the bench and the Swansea back 9 kept us at bay. After a really tough and frustrating week at least we got a point and can now properly regroup for a big finish to the season with or without Mahrez.

    Man City make £50million offer for Riyad Mahrez?

    Jim White on talkSPORT just claimed between £55 and £60m will get him. What a load of rubbish, or at least it better be.

    Harry Maguire

    Pep made a bee line for him after the cup game a few weeks back and I wondered then if there would be interest. If we could get big money and sign someone like Gibson for less it might not be the worst bit of business. Saying that I’d like to keep him if silly money isn’t offered.
