  1. Man City Post Match Thread 0-2

    Thought we did alright in the first 20/25 mins. Manchester City always looked dangerous though and you could tell it was just going to be a matter of time before they scored. We don't need to beat ourselves up too much, they are an excellent team and the likely champions. I was, however, disappointed with two things in particular. Firstly, conceding as we did so close to half-time...I think there was an element of taking our eye of the ball there. Secondly, Puel's substations didn't seem to make much sense and were made far too late. We do look better though than under last days of Shakespeare though, although I do worry if that would be the same if we lost Iborra though injury.
  2. Next up . . . Manchester City (Home) thoughts?

    Draw is the best we can hope for I feel; likely result is a defeat although I think we should be good enough to avoid a dicking at home. I'm struggling to think what the best team would be although it probably involves Okazaki starting. They will have loads of possession I'm sure but I'll be very disappointed if we just sit back and let them build attacks. If Iborra/Maguire/Morgan have a bad game then we'll be struggling tbh
  3. Stoke Post Match Thread 2-2....again

    (From being at the game) 1. Iborra has improved the midfield but still gives the ball away a lot 2. Gray still has work to do but I think game time is helping him 3. We wouldn't have conceded the second goal if we'd left men on the posts at corners 4. Mahrez quiet in first half; much better in the second 5. Worried about Maguire 6. Iheanacho is the new Musa - useless and did nothing but concede free kicks in dangerous areas
  4. Plaudits for our Atmosphere, let's keep it up

    Watching thousands of people clapping along to pre-match Uptown Funk is one of the most tragic things I've seen at a football ground. The clappers have made us a laughing stock I'm afraid and there's nothing we can do about it.
  5. Everton (H) Pre Match

    Can't see him risking three at the back in his first game, so it'll be 4-4-2 or 4-5-1. Part of me thinks he might opt for the latter in a bid to help our problems with possession. But if I had to put money on it...I think he'll play Vardy and Okazaki up front, which is sort of a compromise because Okazaki plays very deep.
  6. What exactly do the owners want?

    They said the target for this season was to be safe enough from relegation to have a go at the cup. As others have said, I think their overall aim is self-promotion...but in footballing terms I think it's setting us up as a more established PL side. Basically they want to be able to look at the table mid-December every year and feel fairly confident we won't be in a relegation scrap. That way, they can start to plan a bit more rather than this ad-hoc firefighting every season. Whether it happens is another matter. It's not like we're the only ones striving for it.
  7. Swansea post match 2-1

    I'm always interested in this argument. Basically what you're saying is that Mahrez can't be blamed for his own under-performance because the opposition mark him, or because other players haven't compensated for his laziness to allow him the time on the ball to be creative. I'm sorry but that's a bit lame for a player supposedly valued at £45-50m who reckons he deserves to be playing in the Champions League. Mahrez would perform better in a better team - but so would everyone! His performances this season have mostly been awful I'm afraid, however much people want to make excuses for him.
  8. Swansea post match 2-1

    I have to say, I know what you mean. For me, Mahrez has only played well this season against a poor Brighton & a poor Swansea. Against better opposition he has been missing in action or totally ineffective. Just proves why a big European club didn't want to pay our interpretation of the 'market' rate for him. Still think he'll move on eventually, but we won't be getting £45/50m for him.

  10. West Brom (H) Match Thread

    This is actually painful to watch. Iheanacho and Iborra have been dreadful, which isn't encouraging tbh.

    My God this is awful. And is that another dedication to the King of Thailand?
  12. Bournemouth Away Pre Match Thread

    I think it's time to adopt 4-5-1 tomorrow to shore up our weak midfield. I know there's a sentimental attachment to 4-4-2, but it's time to face new realities. To be honest, I'm of the opinion that we didn't really play 4-4-2 during much of the league-winning season - Okazaki was often so deep he was essentially an extra midfielder. Anyway...I also think Mahrez should be dropped for Gray, and Iborra should replace King. If fit Fuchs must play ahead of Chilwell at left back. If Vardy isn't fit we are in real trouble - my preference would be for Iheanacho but none of the options are appealing tbh.
  13. Leicester 2-Liverpool 3 post match thread.

    "Burdened by wanting exit door" Well...how about we don't ****ing play him then? People say he can 'change a game' - but he hasn't done it in a while. Also fed up with these commentators praising his attitude by continuing to actually do his job having spat his toys out of the pram. Should clearly be dropped (for his own good as much as ours), but CS doesn't have the balls.
  14. Is Shakespeare the right man for the job?

    Got the suspicion he'll be gone by Christmas.
  15. Pre Match Thread - Liverpool Home (League)

    Feel for Matty James...4-6 weeks injured is a real shitter, and I just get the feeling with him it may be longer. I fear that with Iborra & hopefully Silva in contention soon, this may be it for him and LCFC.
