  1. Iheanacho

    I completely agree it took ages to get this transfer done. Players have a pre season to both gain fitness but also some sharpness so just like Iborra and even Silva when ever that deal gets over the line they are playing catch up with the rest of the squad who managed a proper pre season. in time Kelichi will be a hit I'm sure
  2. Expensive Transfers

    As I said in a previous thread King is only starting because Iborra is not yet fit enough to start a premier league match. If Iborra had a full pre-season he would be starting ahead of King but it's going to take time for him to get fully up to speed and to get use to the league. Gray on the other hand is a complete mystery to me he did well in the cup match and I was disappointed with him not getting a start yesterday but surely his time will come soon if not this coming weekend.
  3. Is Shakespeare the right man for the job?

    Time will tell. The fact that he has not had a fully fit squad to choose from has been the major issue as I can not honestly think he would choose king over the likes of Iborra or even Silva and who knows when that deal will be sorted. Don't get me wrong it's been a frustrating start to the season and I would have liked more points on the board but Shakespeare can only work with the players he has. The only one I would actually consider starting is Gray as the likes of Iborra and Kelichi need time to gain match sharpness and as I said the Silva situation needs to be sorted and then he will need time to gain his fitness.
  4. Huddersfield Away Pre Match Thread

    It would be great to get the 3 points and a performance today and calm people nerves down with some describing today as a must win. The club have had one or two horror moments in the transfer window with the Silva signing the biggest one of them but that's all done know and shakey has to pick from the squad that he has got. As people have being saying we need to take the shackles off and have a go and believe in our attacking side of the game. We have more match winners in our side than the opposition have in theirs and we need to go out and express ourselves while being switched on at the back for the full 90 minutes.
  5. Rule changes up for discussion

    The proposal on time makes no sense to me for example 30 minutes each way with the ref stopping his watch for every corner, free kick, substitution etc would surely mean that there would be almost 45 minutes between the whistle for the start of the hall and the end so why not keep it as it is. What do they want to achieve with the rule change on time is it to cut down on time wasting because I can't see this change making any difference.
  6. Rule changes up for discussion

    Just read this article and it throws up some interesting ideas. The most common sense one for me is the scoreboard linked to the ref watch. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/40311889
  7. Membership 17/18

    The price is a bit steep in my opinion for what they are offering. I mean there will be people paying £60 to simply enter a ballot.
  8. Season Ticket Ballot Open For Gold Members

    Just looked at a email the club sent me saying that I was unsuccessful in the ballot and that they received over 900 applications.
  9. Shakespeare in talks to extend contract

    I would have thought it would be the other way around. I know the club like to keep things under wraps and do their business behind closed doors. But if they have decided that they want to go down a different path they would have put a press release out by now.
  10. Mahrez has asked to leave

    Thanks for your efforts Riyad in the 2015-16 season you gave us some of the greatest memories of our lives but 2016-17 was just a average season
  11. Leicester where they should be - sick of this

    The owners at the beginning of the season were talking about success I found this article on the clubs website in which Top talks about how the owners want to bring success to the club and what they were or are doing to make it happen. http://www.lcfc.com/news/article/2016-17/leicester-city-vice-chairman-outlines-ambition-3288787.aspx#zmfT4EA5ZhSzL2Kw.99
  12. Who regrets it?

    No regrets he is a good man but we can not let the fact that we were on a downward spiral with him charge go unnoticed. And if anyone could honestly say they saw anything in recent performances to say he was turning it around then yes he might have saved his job. I am sure the owners did not sit there sharpening their knives waiting for the opportunity to sack him. They gave it as much time as they could before they felt they had to make a decision. There is still a chance of us going down but there was more of a chance if C.R stayed in charge. And if we are to go down who's to say how long it would take us to get back up again I don't think the owners or even us the fans want a extended period back in the championship.
  13. Ranieri sacked

    It is quite clear that there was player unrest the question is how did we go from a band of brothers to a team that doesn't seem to have that sprit anymore. The talks between the manager and the players and amongst the players themselves did not sort the problems. We will never know what started the problems off but if the players and if it is correct what we are led to believe some of his backroom staff have no confidence in the manager which appears to be the case then something had to change. Just heard on Radio Leicester that the players stabbed C.R in the back after last nights match but as I said we will never know the truth.
  14. The timing of the sacking

    I just wonder what was the straw that broke the camels back because this is strange timing for me why not after milwall which would have made sense to me. Was it because they did not want any adverse publicity before last nights match. In his press conference on Tuesday C.R said that if we lost on Wednesday nothing would change but if we were to win it could be the start of something well I'm afraid a loss has cost him his job.
  15. Shame on our club...

    I am sorry that it has come to this I don't like seeing anyone loose their job but it was coming to a point where the owners had to make a decision and they now have. I personally didn't think C.R was going to sort it out, the result last night was not a disaster but it could have been and the owners decided they could not let their investment in the club go down without doing anything to stop the rot.
