  1. Here's a question ahead of the weekend's games, which way do we want Man City vs Man Utd going at the weekend? Man City win to extend out gap to United or United win to potentially extend the gap to second... Thinking about it, a draw sounds just about perfect 😂
  2. I do sympathise slightly with the Mercury. The days of the local paper getting access to the club are long gone but the appetite of supporters hasn't. They've got to get their stories from somewhere to even compete just a tiny bit with the constant noise that is generated around PL clubs, especially in the time of digital journalism. The click-bait stuff really does wind me up the wall though. All of this "so-and-so said this and Leicester fans will love/hate it" nonsense and it ends up being someone like Allardyce saying Vardy is playing well. Nobody really cares.
  3. Understand that the media are more than capable of spinning a story to sell it. Still doesn't make the quotes okay.
  4. Talk about disrespect... http://sportwitness.co.uk/nearly-done-arsenal-player-feels-lost-two-years-career-leicester/
  5. Has taken his performance to the next level this season. Was impressive last but the progress he has made this season has been brilliant. I love how he can just dictate games now, fantastic player.
  6. Anyone else really nervous about this game? I am confident that we can get a win but lord the importance of it in the race for the top four. Not felt this way about a game for a long time...
  7. Need to he wary of this one, don't get too confident or cocky. Whilst I think we're more than capable of beating them, it does has shades of United and we lost that game. Don't give them too much respect and we should be fine.
  8. All the shouts re Bowen are really a no brainer for me. Young, English, hard-worker, massive goal threat and I believe he's out of contract relatively soon. A bid in January could just get the deal done.
  9. Just reflected back on last night, and to echo the sentiments of a few others, another absolutely bonkers chapter in the history of Leicester City. I honestly believe we have been the most crazy team to follow in the entire country, if not the world, in the past 20 years or so. The good times such as the Great Escape, PL title, Champions League, alongside the horrible times, honestly I can't say any other club has come close to witnessing anything like that. All makes me proud to be a 🦊
  10. Absolutely loved that. Outclassed Newcastle all over the field, they barely got a sniff throughout the 90 minutes. Don't think I've seen that degree of control from a Leicester side in a very long time. Whilst we were brilliant, the scary thing is I don't think we were playing at our maximum. Had we clicked more often in attack, I genuinely think it could have been 7/8. Exciting times 🦊
  11. I really hope we announce him just like United did with Pogba, get one last dig in at them ?
  12. I like this from Claude. It's clear he has a long-term plan for the club and he's been trying to implement it from the off but has been frustrated. Of course, he has made mistakes but I like the long-term planning. It's also refreshing not to just get the bog-standard, PR-friendly answers.
  13. Tried to keep my opinion back on Puel so far but I feel as though now I have to say something. First of all, I have to admit, I have been torn for a long time on whether he should stay with the club. Whilst the two wins against Chelsea and Man City have been amazing (my voice has only just recovered from the former) do not quite make me believe he is the man to take us forwards in the long term, I can see the direction he has tried to take us. The project that he keeps mentioning is clearly a long-term target which is why I am willing to give him time. First things first, following the 5-0 thumping at Palace last season and to an extent, the loss their this season, I was firmly Puel out. The way we have performed against the so-called "lesser" sides recently has not been good enough. That's why this weekend's game against Cardiff is so big for him - get a convincing win against them and it could go a long way in getting fans back onside. In all though, I have seen enough throughout the last few months to understand what Puel has tried to do and agree with a lot of it. It was clear we needed a different style of play. The counter-attack had been found out as teams were just sitting back and stifling our attack. Therefore, by having more possession, you would create more chances. It does take time to completely change the mentality of a whole squad. Also, his faith in youth such as Chilwell (whose improvement defensively has been brilliant by the way) and Choudhury has been brilliant to see. Most of his transfers have also made a lot of sense since he's arrived e.g. Ricardo, Soyuncu, Ward etc. I also see his point on the "balance" in the squad. It has been hard to find an equilibrium between attack and defence and it has taken some time for him to work out his best team. For the record, I think it's taken far too much time. The squad is also extremely bloated and players do need to leave. He has Tried his best to shift out the dead wood. No wonder there is reported discontent with players not playing. The problem is that who would want to buy those players handed long-term contracts on big wages? It's not exactly easy to shift a player collecting 60k+ per week. The final aspect is how brilliantly he had handled some extremely difficult situations. Firstly, the Mahrez situation. I mean what club wouldn't struggle having lost their best player? And obviously the accident. He will forever have my utmost respect for how he lead the club through that time. Yes, I know morality isn't really a reason for someone to keep their job and like I said, I was Puel out and will probably change my mind again at some point throughout the season. After all, it is a results game. A manager is only as good as his last result which lets look, we beat the reigning champions. There are of course negatives: the chances spurned in the cups, the aforementioned poor run of form, the sometimes negative style of play. Yes,at times, it has been turgid. Which is why it has been so hard to really make a decisions. What I do know though is whilst Puel is the manager of Leicester City Football Club, he at least deserves our support. We're on track for what we want to achieve. Should we repeat our first half of the season, we will finish on 56 points which was enough to finish 7th last year. That's after being relatively inconsistent. I don't think it's quite as bad as people make out. Up the Leicester.
  14. I would be tempted to rest a few but not too much as to completely stifle our momentum. Don't think there is much point playing three defensive midfielders against these. Also, if Vardy is out I'dbe tempted to go with Gray up top again. Schmeichel Simpson Morgan Maguire Chilwell Mendy Iborra Albrighton Ricardo Maddison Gray
