  1. Anyone reading through this thread will know my views on VAR. Last weekend yet again confirmed what a disaster it is. The Sheff Utd offside goal was a disgrace and the Man City handball non 'penalty' was a penalty. If VAR is to be taken seriously it must start changing these obvious mistakes. Otherwise it must be binned.
  2. It was only a week or so ago that Kasper was saying how Mahrez (and Kante) always came into the Leicester dressing room because they felt such a bond with the club!
  3. Like to see us start with plenty of pace, passion and drive. No point in giving them time on the ball. I'm sure BR will have got the side down from cloud 9 and will be stressing that this is a new game and the 9-0 counts for little now, in fact it could make Palace more determined. Much as I have no love for Hodgson he is a decent manager for a side like Palace and always seem to get the best out of his players. I'd go: Kasper Ricardo Evans Soyuncu Chilwell Ndidi Perez Tielemans Maddison Albrighton Vardy Bring on Barnes and Gray (who had a decent game in midweek) if we are chasing the match, and Hamza if we are trying to close the match out. We owe them a few beatings after what they've inflicted on us during the Puel era.
  4. You forgot David Pleat, Gary Megson and Frank McLintock!! (Ye Gods, we've had some dreadful managers!) For me Pleat was the worst manager I've seen at Leicester City and I still switch off the volume if he commentates on any match. Holloway was just out of his depth, his entertaining and often baffling comments with the media were just a cover for his incompetence as a manager.
  5. After their "One step from glory" champions League book, and looking at the table this morning, it had me wondering if Spuds are currently producing a new DVD entitled "Top of the bottom half of the P/L"
  6. Yes, another terrible decision. Add in the Brighton v Everton match and we have yet another weekend (so far!) of farcical decisions. There is no consistency at all and it actually seems to be getting worse and is definitely creating more problems than before it's introduction.
  7. - How would you rate our season so far out of 10? -8- The loss to a bang average Man Utd stands out as our lowest moment. - Who has been our best player? Vardy. Not only for his goals, but his leadership, passion and drive. Just ahead of Ndidi and Ricardo. - Who has been our worst player? Chilwell has been disappointing at times, as has Perez. - Which player has improved the most? Soyuncu has impressed and actually improved our defense because of his extra pace. - Where do you think we will finish this season? Third or forth. - How would you rate our manager so far out of 10? -8- Maddison out wide, the apologetic Man Utd set up, and some slow performances like Wolves. Good to see BR has learnt from these mistakes. - What's been the biggest surprise in the league so far? Obviously the 9-0 and 5-0 wins. I'm not used to us winning with big scorelines!
  8. Once a player leaves I have no further interest in them. Maguire made his decision and he has to live with that. But I'm sure counting his huge wages and transfer fee cut will help him through the bad times. But apart from money, I can't understand why any top player wants to join Man Utd at the moment. An out of his depth manager, big ego players, bang average players and it's looking more and more like they will be struggling around mid table for what could be the next few years. However, agents will continue to promote Man Utd because they will continue to pay over the top wages and transfer fees, which is far more important to agents than the players they represent.
  9. I said in my post: 'Lampard may turn into a decent coach, but it's far too early to say if he'll be successful' But I still think it's way too early to say he'll be an exceptionally successful manager after an average season managing in the championship, and 10 games into this P/L season. I do concede that so far he is doing a decent job at Chelsea in those first 10 games, and it's certainly good to see an English coach bringing through young and hungry players. He probably got the job because Chelsea had a transfer ban and could not attract a big name foreign coach in those circumstances. If he does stay, it will be interesting to see how his transfer signings fair once that ban is lifted. If he doesn't achieve top four this season, I'd be surprised if he isn't shunted out if a big name foreign coach becomes available and the transfer ban is lifted.
  10. Understandably spirits on here are very high, and you certainly can't argue with a 9-0 win away from home in a P/L match! But taking into account an utterly dire Southampton set up and performance, we have to keep our feet firmly planted on the ground, otherwise we'll all be moaning like crazy if we lose to Burton or Palace! It also makes me mad to think we lost 1-0 to a terrible Man Utd side, and if we'd shown the same drive there as we did last night we'd be sitting on 23 points now. So I'd play a strong side v Burton. We don't play until next Sunday, so plenty of time for recovery and rest. Nothing like winning to keep spirits and confidence high. Also to show intent to the opposition that we really take the cup seriously. Burton love a cup game, so I think they will set up strong. I'd go: Kasper Justin Morgan Soyuncu. Fuchs. Choudhury Barnes Praet Maddison Albrighton Vardy. Subs: Tielemans, Gray, Perez, Ndidi, Ricardo, Ward, Evans.
  11. It was also excellent refereeing by Marriner to let the game go on at that point, who I thought refereed well last night in terrible conditions. As much as I loathe VAR, revisiting the incident after the goal showed it can work. However it MUST be consistent to convince me, which it hasn't been so far. I've seen just as many reviewed VAR red card incidents, worse than last night, which have gone unpunished, including Tielemans v Bournemouth. Showing it to the fans on a big screen keep them fully informed and left no-one in any doubt the decision was correct. Unlike last Saturday at Spuds where it showed No Goal, but also 1-1 after Alli handled it, and a goal was given!

To think we beat Newcastle 5-0, Southampton 9-0 and both of them got results against Man Utd.
  13. Understandably the votes on here are very high, and you certainly can't argue with a 9-0 win away from home in a P/L match. Taking into account an utterly dire Southampton set up we have to keep our feet firmly planted on the ground, otherwise we'll all be moaning like crazy if we lose to Burton or Palace! It makes me even madder to think we lost 1-0 to a terrible Man Utd side, and if we'd shown the same drive there as we did last night we'd be sitting on 23 points now. Kasper -8- In really horrible conditions his handling was good and made a decent save too. Ricardo -8- Some great driving runs on the right and linked up well with Perez. Evans -8- Didn't give them anything. Soyuncu -8- Apart from giving away a free kick in a dangerous position he was solid again. Chilwell -9- MOTM for me. Not for the goal, but his link up play with Barnes, and his crossing was so much better last night. Keep it up Ben! Ndidi -8- Did what Ndidi does. Such a brilliant player, often so underrated by the opposition. Perez -9- Three well taken goals and some great link up play with Ricardo. Tielemans -9- A really classy performance. Maddison -8- Fantastic free kick, some lovely passes and touches and excellent work rate. Barnes -9- By far his best game for us, and much better link up play with Chilwell. Vardy -9- Only 9 for scoring a hat trick? His hunger and drive to succeed is a lesson for every single person in life. Superb first goal too. Albrighton -6- Did nothing wrong, but game was over when he came on. Gray -6- Like Albrighton, did nothing wrong and some nice touches too. BR -9- Set us up very well and we played hard straight from the kick off. I thought he should play Albrighton in front of Chilwell, but he proved right to persist with Barnes who was superb last night. Good to see him driving us on when we were winning so easily too. Southampton -2- Truly dire. It's going to be a long season for them. But they have better players than several and may be OK if they can get their act together. Otherwise it's relegation. Officials -7- On a dreadful night I thought they let the game flow well. Correct red card decision.
  14. Another 4am bed time for me, so I hope BR sets up with a highly positive attitude and with drive and intent. And please no Maddison on the left wing. Give Albrighton a run there and try Barnes on the right. Get Perez on if Barnes is having a poor game and play him just behind Vardy. I'd go: Kasper Ricardo Evans Soyuncu Chilwell Ndidi Barnes Tielemans Maddison Albrighton Vardy
  15. Apart from money, I can't think why any of our players would go to Man Utd. A very average team with a totally out of his depth manager. They are more likely to win things with us than Man Utd, and that is a situation that may continue for several seasons.
