    La Liga to go Abroad

    Good point. There's not a lot of fan interest to see Real Betis play Levante. Although you could probably make the same comparison to the Premier League. How many people are going to shell out $80 to watch Cardiff City against Southampton? That said, the teams that are big in the US: Liverpool, Arsenal, Man U, Real, Barca, etc. would sell out 100k+ stadiums in a competitive match. The one thing I haven't seen mention is Relevent's nefarious intent in all of this. They are the organizers of the ICC. They brought La Liga competitive matches to the US, and you know that next on their docket of maximizing profit is creating the so called "Super League." This would effectively neuter the premier league, as the biggest clubs would leave to join up with the other mega-popular clubs from around the world to play in an international league with games hosted in all of the world's biggest cities.

    La Liga to go Abroad

    I know if the shoe was on the other foot I'd be just as guilty. If Leicester played a league match within a reasonable distance from me, i'd be there.

    La Liga to go Abroad

    It certainly does feel that way. To be fair, we all thought the same thing when the NFL decided it was a good idea to play games in London.

    Ghezzal, like Mahrez before him, might need to learn how much defending is required as a winger in the premier league. In the long run, he may be a perfect cog in the Puel system, because of his ability to retain possession and breakdown defenders, but Albrighton's defensive solidity can not be understated. We've conceded too much under Puel, and we just need to sure that up a little bit if we're going to really contend.

    Criminal is a very good podcast, similar to This American Life, covering short stories somehow involving crime. Although the narrator/host's voice can be a little grating IMO, she does a lot of research and interviews historians/victims/criminals/etc. associated with the story. Serial/S-Town were good podcasts, albeit with a short run: S1 of Serial investigates the true story of a young woman in Baltimore and the man who was perhaps, wrongly convicted of her murder. S2 is a deep dive into the story of Bowe Bergdahl, an American soldier who went AWOL and was captured by the Taliban. S-Town tells the deeply personal story of an eccentric man living in the deep south of America. I'll just echo what others have said about Dan Carlin's hardcore history. If you have any remote interest in any historical period, he's likely done a podcast on it. Rome, WW1, WW2, the protestant reformation, the mongols, etc. He tells the story in an interesting way, using a lot of legitimate historical sources. Each podcast is hours long, and some topics are 4-5 podcasts long. Maybe more of an audio book than your typical podcast. If you're into TV or Movies, and like people who break down/analyze/preview future episodes, i'd suggest Bald Move. They have a series of podcasts on many popular shows: Game of Thrones, Westworld, The expanse, etc. I also like "The Watch," which is part of the Ringer network of podcasts.

    Chilwell and Gray really worked well together down the left hand side against Man U. I'm not sure why so many people want to replace him with Albrighton. If anything I would think putting Albrighton on his natural right side would help out Ricardo in defense. I'm not sold on Ghezzal's defensive game, and his lack of tracking back might have cost us that second goal on Friday. Assuming Evans is not yet fully fit/healthy: Kasper Ricardo Morgan Maguire Chilwell Albrighton Ndidi Silva Gray Maddison Vardy

    Claude puel will prove to be....

    I feel like he'll keep us above relegation but never good enough to really challenge for the top 6. Hopefully in the meantime he's able to develop enough young talent that we can overhaul this squad, and perhaps the next manager will reap the rewards (like a pearson - ranieri situation).

    USA Foxes

    You could get away with dumping your cable package, signing up for NBC sports gold, and just going to the bar whenever Leicester plays on NBCSN. I think of the 38 league matches, at least 30 of them we're on NBC sports gold.

    USA Foxes

    That's a good question. There's a fair number of american Leicester supporters on here, and other soccer related websites (/r/soccer, etc). There are probably also a lot ex-pats from Leicester who live in the US, and probably have indoctrinated their family and friends That being said, there is a huge gap between Leicester and the "big clubs." I'd say 99% of Americans that support a premier league team, support - Man U, Man City, Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham or Everton. I've never seen a single person walking around Detroit wearing a Leicester shirt.

    USA Foxes

    Reluctantly renewed. Most streams are terrible and unreliable. Leicester play the vast majority of their games on NBC sports gold so I don't see any alternative.

    President Trump & the USA

    Dems win when voter turnout is high. The overwhelming unpopularity of trump would bring out the vote. You bring up an interesting point though about possible candidate for 2020. The two most popular democrats are advanced in age. Bernie Sanders is 76 and Joe Biden is 75. By 2020 they'll be ancient. I have no idea if the party has a good candidate to run with. Also, is it out of the question that Trump won't get challenged by members of his own party in the primary?

    Danny Drinkwater

    He doesn't really fit puel's 3 man midfield, nor is he particularly great at retaining possession. If for whatever reason we return to the 4-4-2 he'd be a good option but that's not enough reason to bring him back.

    Every little thing is gonna be alright

    I agree, we've shown glimpses of looking like an attractive attacking team. Too often though we either didn't know how to open teams up when we've had possession, or we've been poor at finishing the chances we created. It's up to Puel now to put the pieces together, and get this team to play as a cohesive unit on both ends of the pitch.
