  1. Apparently Jakupovic is going out on loan to Preston, so I guess Iversen will be coming back to City, as 3rd choice keeper.
  2. Apparently Daniel Iversen's loan at OHL is being cut short and he's returning to us now. He'll probably be 3rd choice keeper. Not a bad option, he is the regular Under 21 keeper for Denmark and is highly regarded at City. According to the OHL guys on here, he started well for them, but got injured and couldn't get his place back because of the form of (Venezuelan international) Rafael Romo.
  3. https://twitter.com/jacobwakeling10?lang=en Jake has confirmed on his Twitter feed that he signed for us yesterday. And then he scored (again) for the Under 23's, in the win against Spurs. Looks to be a good prospect. I know a few have criticised the reminder of Smudger Smith (because of the way he left us), but if Wakeling does half as much in his time at City, as Smith did, I for one, would be very happy.
  4. I think Ricci could well be on the plane to Portugal. With such a large Subs bench allowed for the Europa, I think it's quite likely that Brendan will want him there, if only to give a confidence boost. A trip home will also help him and his knowledge of Braga could be very useful. I doubt he'd come on though, except in very extenuating circumstances.
  5. https://www.hitc.com/en-gb/2020/11/16/report-leicester-approach-dazzling-40m-youngster-may-have-to-pay-record-fee/ 19 year old Portugese left back at Sporting Lisbon
  6. Mendy's and Fofana's recent performances, show how good a judge of talent Puel was. Such a shame he couldn't motivate ANYONE!
  7. https://www.footballinsider247.com/leicester-city-submit-bid-for-striker-let-go-by-west-brom/ After a successful trial, City have apparently made a bid for Jacob Wakeling, a Centre Forward at Alvechurch. Described as potentially 'the new Alan Smith', if the bid is scuccessful, he will go straight into the Development squad. He has already scored goals for City in PL2. He was released by West Brom in the summer.
  8. Amazing documentary on ITV last night on Laurie Cunningham. Called First Among Equals, in the Black Lives Matter series. I'd forgotten how many games he played for us (15) in the 84/85 season under Milne. The season after we lost Lineker. Mark Bright remembers Cunningham coming to Filbert Street. . Badly affected by injuries, cos of all the tackles he had to endure. The interview with Gary Newbon in Spain is revealing, when he described old injuries being targeted by opponents to knacker him - because he was so good - and black! The clips show he perhaps was the most skillful Engli
  9. Reading the runes (and taking note of what Abrasive Fox said), I think it almost certain that Gray will be staying today - and no one else will be coming in. Also, if the rumours about BR giving Slimani another chance are true, he will probably be in the 25 man squad. So with Dewsbury-Hall going (and Fofana being an Under 21 player) the PL squad is pretty sorted:- G: Schmeichel, Ward & Jakupovic (3) D: Evans, Soyuncu, Morgan, Amartey, Castagne, Justin, Ricardo & Fuchs (8) M: Ndidi, Mendy, Choudhury, Tielemans, Praet, Maddison, Under, Barnes, Albrighton & Gray (10)
  10. I guess the only debate now for the 25 man PL squad, is if Gray is in it (and still at the club having not been shipped out to the EFL). If he isn't, that will be the place for Slimani (if the French / Danny Simpson rumours are true). Dewsbury-Hall will probably pick up the Fofana (Under 21) 'place'.
  11. Thanks. I didn't know that. So just Thomas and ...... who else ?
  12. Ah yes, I forgot there is a B list, to cover for injuries etc. Amartey, Gray and Slimani (if that French report this morning is right) could be on that, along with Thomas.
  13. Presumably because he will be loaned out to the EFL - probably until January, to try and build up a bit of a value, for a sale in the January window (when he still has a bit left on his contract). Possibly because his injury is bad (or not yet diagnosed) - and it's better to have the certainty of Dewsbury-Hall's availability.
  14. Great news. Congratulations. Is the outstanding game with Beerschot still going ahead?
  15. Either a bad Plan A - against Spurs, playing a back 3 (with the incredibly slow Bennett), against an obviously very mobile midfield and forward line. Or no Plan B - against Chelsea, when Lampard make his half time changes - and Bournemouth, first when he substituted Praet for Nacho (to gain, "defensive stability", when we had them 'on toast') and then when we 'lost the plot' (with the Pen and sending off). He clearly couldn't cope with the tactical demands of each game.
