  1. Is Shakespeare the right man for the job?

    The problem is, who would our owners and prat of a DOF go for? It relies on a decent manager applying for the job as I've no faith they have a clue. We need a new DOF as well but doubt we'd be ruthlessness enough to get rid of both and make a massive overhaul. We need a dream team who come as a package but we'd get the chuckle brothers.
  2. Bournemouth Away Pre Match Thread

    We've got to change things or somehow get the first goal, we are a different side when we do. But right now we only have any desire when we go behind which is scandalous, it's a lack of bravery from Shakespeare. Gray has to start, especially against the club that wanted him all summer. Mahrez has looked lost again since he didn't get his move and although Albrighton has been very poor, he looked much better 2nd half yesterday but again it was kitchen sink job after falling behind. When things are all square and we're cautious, Albrighton is highly unlikely to be a match winner. How we sort out this midfield without Silva is beyond me, it was the same last season without Kante. We had Amartey or King and time and time again we were exposed. It's happening again, pathetic from those is charge of our club. Another season wasted and dicing with relegation because of it. Dragovic wasn't even on the bench yesterday but I hope if we go 3-5-2 that he immediately comes in, seems comfortable on the ball. That said it would be harsh to drop Simpson but something's got to give. Maybe we try 4-3-3 with Albrighton tucking in as a 3rd central midfielder and Gray, Vardy and either Okazaki or Mahrez up front. Could be a car crash and 3-5-2 seems the more obvious change but then how do you get Gray or Mahrez in there and still offer our mediocre midfield protection?

    There's a big difference between transforming and regressing.
  4. We could have afforded to lose 2-3 strikers this summer and bring just one attacking midfielder in who could take a set piece and create, but no let's load up on strikers and still pick the same XI anyway.
  5. Iborra for King was the more positive change. He's better in the air than Slimani against defenders and Albrighton would have still been on to whip balls in. Wasted opportunity again.
  6. How frustrating is it to see 3 strikers on the pitch and zero creativity. It's a basic error, we could have 10 strikers on but it doesn't increase your likelihood of scoring. We were less effective when Slimani came on. Too crowded and fewer options to get a telling ball in. It's further evidence that Shakespeare's not got the awareness.

    65/35 in favour of getting rid. He's got too much to learn and not enough time as we've started the season very badly.
  8. It's not good enough only showing attacking intent when you go behind, you can't keep picking results up that way. We ship so many goals. Fine be a counter attacking team but the way we play it has ran its course. If he doesn't change systems soon he can fcuk off. Livid

    He's a striker but does seem able to play out wide or number 10. Certainly making his presence felt, great to see. He's absolutely loving being here, boyhood club.
  10. 2017/18 U23s, Development, U19s etc

    He's head and shoulders above anything at U23 level, he's also doing it out of position.

  12. Nigel Pearson working for KP again

    I sense that this is an amicable agreement due to the nature of how he departed and the tarnish on his reputation. His stint at derby which ended badly coupled with his final few months at Leicester have left clubs steering clear of him. We are obviously saddened by how it ended but it sounds like circumstances made his position untenable with us and he had to go. So now, he gets another crack in management, a new challenge which he claims to always have wanted to manage abroad and our owners get someone proven to bring their new project on a level. There's also a very real prospect that should Pearson perform well and rehabilitate his reputation, if that's an actual saying then he'll end up back at Leicester when we invariably fall on hard times again which might not be very far away.
  13. The OH Leuven Thread

    Is all ok with Nigel and his missus? This smacks of taking a gig away from home to get away from all the bother.
  14. The OH Leuven Thread

    This is the first steps towards the re-introduction of Pearson back to Leicester. He'll take over again, mark my words.
  15. The OH Leuven Thread

    Hahahaa surely he's not? If he is then you can expect promotion and a great team spirit and he'll build you a lasting legacy. He might also chin the odd news reporter and tell your fans to die but all in all he'll do well.
