  1. A defence of Matty James

    Exactly. Against a team we're trying to break down he's rubbish. Against teams that are attacking us he's not bad.
  2. Why is Gray Starting

    Crap result and we're looking for scapegoats. Gray was playing to front behind Vardy. We only challenged in the wings. He did have some good plays at the start of the match but disappeared towards the end. I didn't see much of Vardy either.
  3. Stoke post match 1-1

    Stoke defended resolutely. We failed to break them down. They punished an error and were lethal on the attack. Stoke learnt from our 15/16 success. And punished us in the same way we punished the entire league. The bottom half of the league are doing the same. Puel seemed to be on course to change our style of play: possession with the ability to break teams down. But I really can't see James fitting in here. We were dead in the centre of the park. How will he help to break down teams? Fair enough playing Simpson, Chilwell and Gray. But James I cannot fathom.
  4. Stoke (H) Match Thread

    No one's playing particularly badly. Gray's even having a good game. Simpson's looking decent, even going forwards. And Mahrez is pure class. But we just look flat. I'd kill for a strong, creative midfielder.

    Great defensive work from Gray. Didn't think I'd type that!
  6. Stoke (H) Match Thread

    Yeah. Back next game hopefully.
  7. Stoke (H) Match Thread

    Pity we're not seeing Silva. Hopefully this'll be a game where Gray shines.
  8. You know when we have elections and parties talk about what they're going to do if elected? Yes, that's the discussion. If they don't talk about things you care about you don't vote for them. If they are too vague you don't vote for them. The idea the EU is bad because it's not spoken about in general elections is madness. The EU has internally torn the Tory party apart. We even had a new party form that only talks about the EU. To argue the EU has no salience in British elections is crazy. And then to argue the EU is unaccountable is a double serving of crazy. We vote for British politicians. Those directly-voted-for British politicians then go to Brussels. Those directly-voted-for British politicians then make decisions on EU law in the European Council. We also vote for British politicians in the European elections. Those directly-voted-for British politicians then go to Brussels. Those directly-voted-for British politicians then make decisions on EU law in the European Parliament. We, again, vote for British politicians. They form a British government with a leader. This directly-elected British leader then goes to Brussels. This directly-elected British leader then agrees or disagrees to EU treaties. Pop quiz! Who is accountable?! How can these directly-elected-people be held accountable?! What national mechanism can be used for the above?! What directly-elected people could change EU law?! That we have elected people. And that they have agreed to things. And that they have convinced you they are not accountable? Hats off. Genius politicians at work.

    You've just mentioned Vardy, Shinji and Aguero in the same post when describing a potential signing. With exactly zero due diligence on my part, and using someone else's money, may I just say.
  10. Have we still failed to understand the role of the European Parliament and EU Council, both of whom we directly vote, through our national elections and EU elections? But if you're still enjoying painfully parading out this tired distortion year after year then please continue to ignore the above.

    Oh lord. I feel sorry for the guy. And Newcastle.
  12. Stoke (H)..pre match thread.

    I'd like to start to choose N'didi's main partner. We've seen a fair bit of Janes and Iborra. Surely Silva's had enough time to settle in now. I'd like to see him step it up and claim a permanent first team place.
  13. EFL, LCFC and FFP

    Is that true? No, wait. Don't tell me if it's not. Providing I ignored the merchandising stuff, I'm starting to think this is all above board!
  14. Mahrez is our most talented. And he creates the most chances to win games. But Matty James and Wes could well be fantastic for the team as a whole. And Shinij's crazy work rate on the field demands a mention. There was that sports scientist who said he'd root "terrorists" out of the team, meaning players who were bad for the team dynamic. Our most important player is probably the opposite to those kinds of players, both on and off the pitch.
