    There are some eerie similarities with the start of the 2000/01 season under Peter Taylor. City went top of the Premier League for the first time ever and top of the league for the first time since the 1930s after 8 games. I still have the league table clipping from a newspaper at the time because I had never seen us in that position before and did not expect to see us in it again. But in that season, like this one, the 8th game was followed by a 2 week break for international football and the next game was Liverpool away, which City lost. I think Heskey got the winner. 


    Taylor managed to hold things together for a few more months and we were still 4th in March after beating Liverpool at home, But then came the Wycombe match in the FA Cup and the club went into a tailspin from which it took more than a decade to recover.


    I'm not saying that history will repeat itself. I don't think it will but I don't like the parallels. 

    Can’t disagree with this anymore than I do. Whatever ‘eerie similarities’ you state fundamentally we were playing awful football and a few results went our way. Compared to now that team was utter dross and anyone who watched us play in that period wouldn’t have been surprised we capitulated so quickly once everyone realised how shit we actually were. 

    As of now, this team deserve to be top as we are playing excellent football packed with a team of high achievers.

    I like the look of this but you’ll need to find a spot for Maddison probably in place of Under.

    What I like is the fact this formation is not ‘trying’ to find a space for anyone. It is a logical, experienced and balanced side with round pegs in round holes which is needed against a side such as Wolves, that makes no apologies. Maddison off the bench in the latter stages would be good here as would Praet.

    Based on the same evidence as you are drawing from - eyesight. You think he looked great? Excellent. Based on the same evidence, I think he looked overweight. It’s an opinion. It’s okay if you don’t share it.  But I have a suspicion he’ll be slimmer, if he’s still here after the next pre-season. And if you think that’s an ‘awful comment’, you probably shouldn’t read half the threads on here. Or is it a PC reference to fat-shaming? You realise these are elite athletes who are constantly weighed and set specific diets?? Maybe you should contact the club and tell them that it’s okay to be carrying a

    few pounds? 

    Absolutely it’s a fat shaming reference. He performed well so weight shouldn’t be an issue and it is sad that is the only thing you reached for.

    He needs to lose some weight - Under, not Tanner! 

    Based on what evidence? He has played a handful of minutes so far and looked pretty good. Just because he isn’t built like Dele Ali  doesn’t mean his game suffers. Different shapes aid different styles, maybe the extra size helps his game so he won’t get pushed off the ball. In this day and age I think this is an awful comment to make.

    That's a bit harsh! He's been super professional throughout this whole fiasco, it's not his fault it didn't work out. 

    Yes but of course this sort of empathetic thinking doesn’t fit with the current narrative of combustible one-off statements designed to shock.

    Agree, it wasn’t his fault and he displayed total professionalism throughout.

    Good signing. How we've turned this transfer window around and our first few results, dare I say things are looking positive at the moment.

    I don’t think the transfer window was ever in danger other than in the minds of some impatient fans. We took our time and got the right people in.

  8. Ok so I don’t often try football player chants as I am crap at them. But an ear worm of Psycho Killer by The Talking Heads... “Fa, Fa, Fa, Fa, Fa, Fa, Fa, Fofanaaa” really is one that should have the opportunity to be expanded on by people better than myself.  

    The nearest I have got is ‘Jamie Vardy... N’didi... Fa, Fa, Fa, Fa, Fa, Fa, Fa, Fofanaa’


    Can anyone help?

    I understand that, but as he is arriving from a country with high infection rates, surely he would have to self isolate. When someone has tested positive, they are already passing the infection on by then, I am led to believe.

    Arriving from a country with high infection rates yes but not in the team bubble that they will have been confined to.

    Wow. Fofana & Castagne for less than we sold Chillwell. Retained Mendy. I would be very happy with that before the season starts with one eye on improving our attacking options after a few games. Just before 7 this morning TalkSPORT dedicated a segment to our outstanding transfer policies in recent years and this window (despite a few short sighted gripes on this forum) would make for further proof that as club, top to bottom, LCFC has its shit together.

    Just saying like...
