    I know what you're saying but if Malcom would have come to us we'd have blown the £40-45m and likewise Leon Bailey. It's just nigh on impossible to get such talent to come to us, we have to scratch lower and turn them in to superstars.

    Striker light?

    The other thing about our crossing is that if you've allowed the opposition to set their position by having a lot of the ball and not moving it forward quickly then it takes an absolute peach of a cross to find your attacker (we only ever have one in the box) where as if you've launched a fast and direct attack you've stretched the opposition and crosses are easier to find your attacker. We need to find a mix. It's why we need to blend our old style with being more comfortable in possession as well, which we saw under Puel pre-xmas last year.

    Striker light?

    The biggest mystery to me so far is now we have overlapping full backs, we are seeing a lot more crosses coming in to the box and absolutely nobody there. What's the fcukin point? It's just ineffective use of the ball which is a common theme under Puel. We can have all the possession in the world but we saw previously it's what you do with it that counts. We've got to be more dynamic. The way to combat us is to sit deep and let us tinker with the ball and then push us out wide so that crosses come in to Vardy who is average at best at attacking crosses and it's a fairly easy way to nullify any attack. Iheanacho may be slightly more accomplished at meeting crosses, will be interesting to see how he does the next 3 games. I don't mind us only having 2 first team strikers but we have absolutely nothing in the academy either. Watching Diabate try and operate at number 9 for the U23's last night was the pits and I fear Puel thinks he can use him or Gray in that role without any bother.
  4. The training ground and stadium expansion can be funded by our owners without effecting FFP, I'm led to believe. Fans are mistaking this summers issue during August of recruiting players on the fact we are tightening purse strings but the main factor was our wage limits from a bloated squad of shit. Nearly all will be gone by next summer and there'll be more room for manouvre. That's not to say we aren't being mindful but we'll still be spending.

    Stadium Expansion Plan Meeting

    Would we actually fill a 48,000 stadium? I think at a push now we'd get around 36-38k for most weekend games, around 30-32k for midweek dross in the winter and maybe just over 40k for the big games. I just don't see 48k ever going so it's a brave move.

    Was Barnes awarded any assists on Saturday, does the one where he hit the post and then Gibbs scored count?

    Yes, they've managed to get rid of all strikers at youth level and only 2 left at first team level bar that donkey. You wouldn't mind if we were a team that didn't put in about 30 crosses a game!!! Just a complete waste of fcukin time.

    Southampton (A) pre match

    He's barely brought the ball forward in either game this season, I'm wondering if he's been told by Puel to not do so as our full backs are the ones doing that now, another reason for us going to wingbacks so he can do what he does best.

    Southampton (A) pre match

    A striker who holds the ball up well and attacks crosses, now where have I seen one of those before??

    Mobile data at KP Stadium?

    Yeah mines that bad I've had to start downloading films from Netflix to watch offline at the game, properly pissed me off last year.
  11. Admittedly it wasn't perhaps in the programme notes but to be honest I wouldn't know that for sure but it was definitely reported by a lot of media sources but you're right the quotes came direct from Thailand. Sky Sports definitely ran with it a lot and seemed to be discussed quite regularly on Soccer Saturday when at first we were looking like getting relegated and then when we were looking like winning the league the year after. I don't mind the direction the club is going anyway, it all makes sense. It never made sense that we were genuinely going to break in to the top 4 but briefly we did haha.

    And how does that explain the decision to loan out Barnes if he's Mahrez's replacement? I don't buy we can't afford to replace him, if there was a player of Mahrez's calibre available who was willing to come to us we'd go for him. Money isn't an issue, the words Puel used were likely to mean the quality of Mahrez isn't possible for us to replace as those players go to better clubs than us. We have to sign players with potential to try and reach that level again or players with a point to prove.

    We're surely going 3 at the back once Soyuncu is up to speed, otherwise it's a very baffling time to be a Leicester fan once again.

    If that's the case then it's one of the most moronic decisions in the world to go and loan the said replacement out for the season.
  15. I noticed that too, quite bizarre given how determined they were that we'd be top 4 within 5 years. Perhaps that itch has now been scratched after absurdly winning it after only 2 seasons, but if anything shouldn't their targets remain the same as a bare minimum given the common from them has always been progression. It's not that what we're doing is unsatisfactory, but it wasn't the fans that were genuinely targeting such lofty heights so soon in to being a Premier League team once again. I wouldn't mind if they showed some real due diligence with our youth team, they pumped a fair bit of money in to it a few years back but did nothing to remedy the people in charge of it whom don't match the level we want to get to. It makes even less sense that we are to build the best training facilities in the country but will likely keep the same setup in our academy, but hey ho let them get on with it. Why didn't they deem it appropriate to under promise when we first got back in the Premier League, it was bordering on embarrassing that they were claiming we'd be one of the top boys in England within a few years. Yet, somehow we were for a season or so and a lot of the footballing world had to shake their heads and consider perhaps being ambitious as a smaller club in football can pay off with tangible success. I think the blueprint right now is a sensible way of going but it's a big shift from their statements they've made previously.
