  1. Adrien Silva - Terms Agreed

    FIFA's involvement is simply matching up the documents from the two clubs involved - the FA documentation was time stamped 14 seconds late so FIFA couldn't accept it according to their rules. The issue is not when the documentation is submitted to FIFA it is when it was submitted to the FA .
  2. LCFC Internationals 2017/18

    King is on the bench, but I see that Lawrence is starting for Wales
  3. Daniel Amartey

    I wasn't too impressed with him at RB on the occasions he played there last season, but it was not a position he was used to and he only got the occasional game. It looks very much to me as if Shakey wants the option of a more attacking RB and is going to develop him in that role - he's certainly quick and he can cross the ball - not notable characteristics of Simpson. I don't think he has done so badly in the two pre-season games and with further development and game opportunities he could turn out alright, we will see.
  4. Scrappy first half but we looked much the better team in the second and could easily have scored more. My main reflection though was how on earth have Watford been above us in the league for so much of the season
  5. Shakespeare

    Personally I think having a big name manager who makes all the decisions is no longer the way to go for many clubs. We have already demonstrated the value of a more team based approach and you can see this happening more and more at other clubs. I would see Craig Shakespeare as very much a team player happy to work with the other coaches, the medical/ physio staff, the analysts, the recruitment staff and so on. Of course the buck stops with the manager ultimately and he has already demonstrated that he is quite comfortable with making decisions even when under pressure. Another essential for a manager is being the public face of the club, dealing with the media and so on and he already seems to be taking well to that role. Finally, a manager as well as listening needs to be able to inspire and motivate others, especially the players - he has certainly demonstrated that so far. If I was writing a job description for our next manager I'd say that he ticks all the boxes.
  6. According to the Mercury there is no release clause in his contract, so perhaps we are getting excited about nothing. Shock
  7. I've gone for 11th which is the best I think we can realistically do, but as long as we stay up I will be happy
  8. Confidence and momentum are so important in football and at last you can see this swinging in our favour. Plus, at last, a bit of Mahrez magic!
  9. Birch taken ill at awards ceremony

    fingers crossed he is OK. Terrible news
  10. Man City Post Match Thread 4 - 2

    Well what a miserable wet evening that was walking to the ground with doom and gloom in the air and then bang! 3-0 in 20 odd minutes! Football is full of surprises, especially if you support Leicester City What a joy to watch (apart from the last 10 minutes). Every player busting a gut just like last season and some brilliant direct football - we found our mojo again, let's hope we keep it!
  11. Positives...post 'em here

    It certainly made the players that didn't play look better than they have mainly been rated so far. I don't see many of tonight's squad who haven't been starting banging on Claudio's door anytime soon.
  12. Vardy Next Goal Sweepstake

    I'm going the other way - Sunderland in extra time
  13. Article today regarding our Summer Recruitment

    Well according to the Mercury today: http://www.leicestermercury.co.uk/are-leicester-city-getting-it-right-in-the-transfer-market/story-29944238-detail/story.html Nothing in effect has changed with our transfer system and all the players we signed had been tracked for some time. Kaputska was signed for an initial £2m potentially rising and was seen as a player for the future.
  14. Mr amartey

    When he started driving forward more in the second half on Saturday I thought he provided some of the few bits of brightness in an otherwise poor display from City. Sure, he still has some way to go and much to learn but the potential looks to be there.
  15. One of my all time favourites and certainly one of the best defenders I have seen at City. He always seemed to have time on the ball, such composure.
