  1. I supported the decision of us resting a few key players last season in the QF against Man City mainly because it looked like even if we won we'd be in the SF draw with Man Utd, Arsenal and Chelsea. We were no better placed to win it in the QF than we were at the start of the competition. However with our league campaign looking mediocre, 10 pts above the relegation zone and an outside chance of 7th place then I think we should play our best team. There is a big bonus of the possibility of facing Middlesbrough or Burton for a place in the final.

    Morgan

    I've been one of Morgan's biggest defenders on here as a lot of fans make him the scapegoat for anything poor defensively. However he'll be nearer 36 than he will be 35 at the start of next season and with Maguire secure in his place and spending a fortune on Evans, Soyuncu and Benkovic this summer then something is drastically wrong if we feel we need to retain an ageing Morgan.

    Kasper is certainly not the sort of leader who would sit in the trenches whilst the troops went over the top. He'll lead from the front as always.

    We don't really need one, the silence speaks a thousand words.

    That is being reported in some major foreign media outlets unfortunately.

    The silence is deafening. Hoping for the best but expecting the worst. Tragic.

    That looks like a bullet dodged. Went to two bob Spanish outfit Girona and has made six sub appearances. https://www.whoscored.com/Players/136462/Show/Patrick-Roberts

    Should have got Ghezzal on loan if that was the case. Monaco were desperate to get rid and would have been open to a loan and we could have had an option to buy. He looks what we thought he would be. Not terrible but mediocre and we'll struggle to move him on. At 26 there is little hope for improvement either. Monaco managed to shift their forward to Southampton for £19m who was awful for Monaco and now awful for Southampton. These foreign clubs must love PL clubs who spend their money without due diligence.

    Agreed, it sounds like another expensive player to come and sit on the bench.

    Yesterday's man.

    Macia to Villa

    No thanks. Awful at Everton and we signed a few of his targets here when he'd gone and they were useless. Living off the Kante signing.

    That “Handball” last night

    His hand was already above his head before the contact. Don't complain about getting fleas if you lie down with dogs.

    That “Handball” last night

    The Vardy header was looped up for what is a relative age. He had all the time in the world to get his hand away from above his head. Penalty all day long.

    Rachid Ghezzal signs.

    I disagree about Barnes as I think a full season playing week in week out in the Championship is best for him. Puel brought him back earlier this year and he didn't set the world alight. Before we signed Ghezzal I had hoped to give our young talented players in Gray, Iheanacho and Maddison plenty of game time and hoped at least two of the three would come of age. Then we had the reliability of Albrighton who would rotate with them. We also had Okazaki and Diabate who could support and Ricardo and Chilwell could play there if need be. I didn't see the point in bringing someone who wasn't better than what we already had. Ghezzal like the Ward signing had "waste of money" written all over them. Two players in their mid 20's for £25m who at first glance never looked like being first choice players. If I owned the club I'd be telling the people who want these type of signings that their jobs are under threat if these signings bomb. It's all so predictable which is the thing that really pisses me off.
