  1. Lifeless performance for most of the game - something needs to change yesterday.
  2. I'd make a buzz contigent on signing. There's no way that's optimally aerodynamic.
  3. [never mind, don't want to get involved here]
  4. I agree with both of you, but ideally these alternate angles offer a. a fresh feel of a signature moment and b. a closer to the action than the TV angle. Sometimes it does work - but like any cinematographic technique you can overdo it.
  5. It's more important for a multitude of reasons (probably most pressingly, financial) to finish this season versus starting a new one. They can also do quite a bit more scheduling-wise for the next so long as they get this one finished (including scrapping a few international breaks, multiple games a week, and so on).
  6. Also, basically every American sport in season (and even those who aren't like the NFL, but have a ton of activity this time of year) has suspended. If I were a betting man, we won't play this weekend.
  7. This isn't confirmed - someone who has it and 'recovers' still testing positive is not the same as being reinfected. That said, any/all precautionary steps are advisable.
  8. I've always figured it's over a girl(s). Makes sense if they grew up together and ran in similar circles. This idle gossip topic is a favorite of foxestalk.
  9. Rumors of Albrighton's death are greatly exaggerated - he's a great squad player and with Europe on the menu his minutes will increase. I still think he's the last title-winner to depart.
  10. Unless Coronavirus kills 10% of the US population, Trump wins this at a canter. The more interesting political questions is who emerges on both sides in 2024?
  11. I feel like there's two choices in life, you can either get bent out of shape when some has been never was slights the club, or you can just toss them in the dumbass pile and go about your day. who the hell is even asking this guy his opinion?
  12. Agreed, our best player. Do feel like he flys below the radar though at least as far as the punditry is concerned.
  13. Zero interest in this - terrible transfer.
  14. Solid performance - drew a critical penalty when the game was still in the balance, combined well with others and held the ball nicely in the area. Enjoyed his awareness to let the one ball go to Barnes as he was off before the Ricardo goal. Great option off the bench for us of late.
  15. I also think there's a lot of you overvaluing the influence the fans have on these players. It's not a zero value but it's a bit narcissistic to assume boos can really shake these guys.
  16. I don't think confidence is Chilwell's problem, if anything a humbling might force him to tidy his play up. It makes sense to me that he'd like to try and move on elsewhere. He's been at Leicester City since childhood - who wouldn't want to spread their wings? Wouldn't or you feel ready for the next thing after ~ten years in the same place? The grass may or may not be greener but I imagine he wants to raise his wages and challenge himself elsewhere. Could see him leaving in the summer for a good fee and that'll be that.
  17. Chilwell gave away so many balls..
  18. this thread and its replies making the Merc site: https://www.leicestermercury.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/give-boy-chance-leicester-city-3728471
  19. I love that 'big' team fans think they can just trim their roster fat by sending bang-average, hyper-inflated players to unsuspecting low/midtable rubes who will be just smitten that someone who use to take shits in the home locker of Old Trafford is available to destroy any possible wage structure their club has while feeling too good to be there. It's truly a wonder that these baby with the bathwater deals including Lingard haven't lifted off yet, truly. Do they think no one else watches their always televised games?
  20. Put the computer/phone/pipe down for awhile. This is terrible team management and runs completely against all the efforts the club's made to foster a positive peer environment for the young guys.
  21. They need to find times earlier in the season to add fixtures vs. this mid-season glut or trying to extend it later into June. They could even make a thing of it - like "Big Tuesday" when everyone plays after the first Saturday or something. If there's not going to be a winter break, inventiveness is needed.
