    January Transfer Window Thoughts & Rumours

    We talk of how crucial Mahrez was but we seem to have suffered losing Big Banter Ben. Even when things were tough a la 2015/15 he could be relied upon to pull a funny face or set up a HILARIOUS prank on some other player to lift the mood. Where is the banter gonna come from?

    Harvey Barnes - West Brom (loan)

  3. Probably not big enough for the mass celebrations that will follow over Christmas! Another one to do a Leicester. As long as they don't go do a Gweedore on it. https://twitter.com/niallfriel96/status/1070041980011470848

    We need to talk about Wilfred Ndidi

    The surprising form of Mendy has probably placed N'Didi in a less favourable light. N'Didi was fine as long as he was the one doing more of the defensive work but now of the 2 he is the one expected to get forward and make something happen. Similar to Sarri playing Kante in attack it's not his strength. N'Didi is still valuable to us. As much as Vardy's loss hurts us if anything happened Wilf we would be in a lot of bother.

    Islam Slimani to Fenerbahce (Loan)

    Slimani wouldn't be any worse than what's there outside of Vardy but the fact that Claude has sent him on loan twice doesn't exactly scream 'answer to all our problems' either.

    Spurs 0-2 Post Match Thread

    I'm going against the grain here but I don't believe we actually played that bad. Spurs deserved their win but I wouldn't fault us for effort. We all love a good chuckle at Spurs but there is no denying that they are a decent enough well run club who have grown considerably over the years. If anything they are a model we should aspire to. Not since maybe Newcastle in the 90s have a team broke into the Top 6 over a couple of years on a more modest budget. We had a lot of the ball but we just don't have a decent striker to make it count. It was tough to watch Gray trying to make something happen. I wouldn't be too hard on Claude for where we are at. He has made some good signings in Ricardo and Evans and even Ghezzal showed a few nice touches when he came on. He's annoyed as us over having to rely on Nacho but he should get a chance to bring in a decent forward. Disappointing night but was always gonna be a big ask without Vardy and Maguire. No need to overreact like we always do. Long way to go this season yet.
  7. Astonishing upset in leinster club football final today. Mullinalaghta of Longford have beaten Kilmacud crokes of Dublin 1-8 to 1-6. A population of over 300 people and the club has beaten the biggest club in Ireland. A Leicester like fairytale. The magic of the gaa.

    Spurs 0-2 Post Match Thread

    We didn't actually play that bad but just in attack we were ineffective. I wouldn't fault the effort of the team. Disappointing to lose but whatever we think of spurs they have spent a few years getting to that level of consistency. It could take us a while to get there. Not nice to lose but would be harsh to throw the toys out of the pram over tonight.

    Kelechi Iheanacho / Nacho Man

    Claude is persisting with him only as there is no alternative. Talk of patience isn't cutting any ice with me. He can't complain about not getting chances. Musa was finished with us after Sevilla away, Over 6 months into his time with us. Iheanacho has been very lucky that he will get 3x that.

    We need to talk about Wilfred Ndidi

    Wouldn't hold it against him for not being as good as Kante. He does have a lot of his attributes. Given the role he is trying to play he gets a lot of flak maybe for not being like Drinkwater.
