  1. There isn't an appointment that will keep every one happy. I think this satisfies quite a few different points for me though. 1. We've taken a manager from a club that took ours 18 years ago. When we got Puel it felt like no one in a job would touch us. That has to be progress. 2. Someone that will look to unite the club and the fans. 3. A name. Most people know how Brendan Rodgers is and his style and what that would mean to us. 4. The youth crusade we are on can continue! Has promoted youth pretty much everywhere he has been. Some great young players at Celtic also, could go back for Tierney/ Edouard who can make the step. 5. Unfinished business in the Premier league. Yes we don't expect to fight for a title, but his reputation was damaged by the time he left Liverpool. He is young, hungry and has something to prove. 6. His missus is fit 😂 All in all, I'm with him!!
  2. Do you really see the board removing Puel before the end of the season regardless?
  3. Just out of interest, all the clueless Claude comments came out pre Chelsea away also. If we manage to get a positive result out of this will anyone be able to support the team, before admitting defeat in future, or is that too much to ask?!
  4. I'm quite excited by this today.. Vardy should be dropped based on recent form anyway, it's just we have no other options. Clearly set up to go on the counter today. Imagine Barnes and Gray will swap in the false 9. 2-1 city. Barnes x2
  5. The booing was a total shambles. Seems being a supporter doesn't require supporting any more. Thought Ghezzal did well when he came on too, much more effective than Madders, but he's English, young and has a haircut so is immune from the criticism that some of the 🛎🔚s that were in my proximity again today.
  6. Rodgers is the type of manager that we should be going for when looking for our next. Lots of experience but still has something to prove in England. Would also get the majority of our fan base support (except those that demand Pep or Klopp!!)
  7. Just back from today's game. It's beginning to feel like visiting a relative you don't like going down to the KP, you feel you got to go but don't really like it. Everything today felt wrong from the outset, the crowd didn't seem up for it from the start, the team matched it. Regardless of the formation and selection, the pressing and desire didn't seem there at all today. Passes wayward and without confidence. Again we got what we deserved going 1-0 down. Mendy had an absolute stinker today no denying that, but has enough credit in the bank this season to have another chance. Great to see Hamza again be the best player in blue today. What set him apart was the apparent desire he was showing. This wasn't as clear in some of the older Pros. Thought Vardys contribution today was minimal, Wes was throwing his arms around in the second half showing frustration, which is worrying for a leader when we're under pressure. Good to see Harvey Barnes in the squad, unfortunately I think way too much expectation is going to be planted on his shoulders too soon this season. Madison and Gray should be taking much more of that responsibility and so often flatter to deceive. All in all a terrible afternoon, Puel must take his portion of the blame as must the players, who seem to be getting away with too much after poor performances whilst the manager takes it all. I'm not Puel in or out, I'm just Leicester city through and through and until the board make the decision he's no longer the manager gets my support.
  8. Can absolutely guarantee he will written off having not had chance to settle into the squad. It's what we do best!
  9. I think we will get to 40 points soonish and then lose a lot on the spin, the intensiteeee won't be there and we will nosedive, putting us in the same bracket as what Pulis did season on season for West Brom. Think Top will stick until the end of the season, we should be looking at the best out there available to us from May and change then. This can't be long term the way it is
  10. Silva and Iborra cannot be worse than James and King. Embarrassing selection, embarrassing application, embarrassing result. We got what we deserved. Shambles.
  11. Any thoughts on whether Maddison could be that creative player in a 3 if pushed back? I guess my question marks around that would be if he has the engine.
  12. The game as a whole was a bit of a shocker today. That said if it was a good game would be have won it? The first half was turgid Sunday league hoofball, but as soon as we got in front I don't think it was ever in doubt. A Puel ball master class and the sort of game that suits his style. As the game got stretched we looked more dangerous. In my opinion we were unlucky to only win by one. Notable shootouts today for: Ricardo- he's just bloody lovely isn't he. I've never seen a fullback make so much of a difference. Granted he was playing further up today but he is so dangerous. I'll wait while someone tells me of a better right back in the league right now. Evans: defence is an area we really aren't struggling, huge strength in depth and today he was absolutely terrific. Alongside Maguire they are collossals. One brain fart of a minute but that aside was superb. Choudhury: no coincidence us picking points up when this lad has been introduced to the team. He plays like a winner. Great attitude, superb engine and seems to be enjoying himself. I can see him adding goals at some point too. All in all 7th in the league, 9 out of 12 at Christmas. What more can people ask for?
  13. There is a guy a couple of rows behind us in SK1 that ever since Demarai Gray signed he has slagged him off for everything.. so much so me and my mate are convinced Demarai has been playing around with this chaps mum or wife (could be the same person with this chump) Actually heard against Cardiff when the ball was across the other side of the field "look at the way Gray is running, it's a disgrace". It's always a good addition to the match day fun!
  14. I would blame the recruitment that has happened since we were champions. I don't think recruitment is in many managers areas of responsibility these days. Certainly not that of Slimani, Musa, Silva, Iheanacho, etc.
