  1. And yet...good though both Barnes and Gray were last night, our front three look a long way off say, Mane, Salah and Firmino. Just saying.
  2. It really doesn't matter does it? With Puel in charge it'll be side to side, shots from distance, no edge, and a plan that doesn't involve our best player. We might not concede the first goal, but we'll concede the winner at some point.
  3. 1965-66, 0-0 v Northampton Town, in their only season in the top flight. I think my Dad chose that game as we were 'guaranteed' to win, the Cobblers being rock bottom and everyone's whipping boys. Banks certainly played and I have a feeling the Doog did too, but I could be wrong. The result that day set the pattern for a lifetime supporting the club. We left Leicester for the West Midlands in 1966 and from then on I'd get to about 3 games a season until I started going regularly under my own steam in 1981. It was three or four years before I saw us win a home game! Even now (well, especially now under Puel) I turn up for 'should win' home games expecting to be disappointed.
  4. I'm done with him now. I've spent a season on the fence but have reluctantly climbed off it. Puel has to take the blame for our suicidal start to game after game - yesterday, like Liverpool, and Wolves before that, it was men against boys in the opening 10 minutes. Add to that his neutering of Vardy, his destruction of Iheanacho and the fact that he feels its ok for Okazaki still to play any part at this level. And to that his mind-boggling substitutions, his stubborn addiction to playing two or three DMs when he had Silva and Iborra available if a three was appropriate. On the plus side, he's no longer starting Morgan or Simpson, and Ghezzal may turn out not to be the Worst Player Ever... Rodgers or Benitez please
  5. It's not if, is it, it's when. I suspect he has the rest of the season to prove conclusively that with him in charge we're on a road to nowhere. I'd love to be wrong, but I won't be.
  6. It's deadlock on here. There's no clear way forward. We need a #PeoplesVote.
  7. Can't argue with anything the man says. But look at what he doesn't say. Not a word reported about playing weakened sides in two successive home league cup quarter finals. Not a peep about doing the same in two successive FAC3R matches, losing one and coming within the width of a post of losing the other. I have patience and realistic expectations for my club. We're not going to finish top 6 or bottom 6. All the more reason for giving the cups our all, not treating them as an inconvenience. I'm still angry!
  8. 8.5 Ricardo 7 the rest except Kasper, Wilf, Maddison 6 each, Gray 5
  9. Same XI if the physios ok that. Only Harry, Wilf & Hamza have played the full 90 of the past two. Hamza can be rotated out v Cardiff. If they’re without Fernandinho & D Silva we have a chance. A snowball’s, but a chance.
  10. It's the lack of visible progress that erodes faith. I can see what he's trying to do and admire that; I'm even happy with last summer's recruitment and that we'll only really see the best of this group next season. But we're not visibly moving forwards. And the two QFs v Man City were just infuriating and clueless. I still suspect he has the season but probably has to have an outstanding second half of the season to earn another year. If he goes I'd love Benitez here. Rodgers or Bielsa wouldn't be bad either.
  11. I bloody hope not - I’ve got a fair journey for this one and I’d like to think we have a chance at 7.45. Mind you, I always think we have a chance at KO in the PL. Shows what I know.
  12. Best possible XI, excepting Ward in goal. Most important game left this year!
  13. Don’t agree, sorry. Perreira was good in both aspects of his game. If we don’t buck our ideas up he’ll go to a top 6 (or equivalent) side next summer or the one after..
