  1. If the fee for Deeney is correct, we're could've paying paying a good 5m over the odds, but it's pennies to Billionaires!! But if we're going to play 3-4-3, Vardy as the main CF with Slimani and Deeney either side, defences would take a battering in the air and still have to take on Vardy with his pace and all 3 would defend from the front. It could be an interesting Trio.
  2. Always enjoyed Newcastle away, found the people friendly and a good night out. Scunthorpe I remember was pretty decent due to a Samuel Smiths pub being about £1.30 a pint
  3. Well done. Cutting your diet back certainly helps, I felt like I had a lot more energy instead of feeling sluggish. I stopped drinking alcohol New Year's Eve, and said I will do 2/3half Marathons and get back into shape. I ran the Liverpool half marathon in 2hrs 20 mins at the start of April, and it felt great, also raising £1050 for a premature baby charity in Leicester, Since then I haven't motivated myself, still no alcohol but eating the things I restricted myself before hand has slowly crept in having originally gone from 13st 2 to 12 stone. Im signing up for the Manchester Half Marathon at the end of the month to give me the kick up the ass, so I don't let the hard work go to waste. Keep up the good work!!
  4. I have struggled to come to a decision on who I fancied most as Prime Minister (I couldn't warm to either of them and I haven't ever stuck to a certain political party). So after trying to weight up the "Pro's and Cons" of all manifesto's, I felt it better that I didn't vote tonight as I couldn't be comfortable picking one over the other. So may the best man/woman win, and let's hope we all get behind whoever comes out on top and lead this great country forward.
  5. I brought a few Andy McNab books off EBay starting with the first one...Bravo Two Zero. Heard they are a decent read about his times in the SAS.
  6. Few that stick in my mind are: Izzet overhead kick away vs Grimsby Danni Cadamarteri a home cup game....not sure why!! Joey Gudjohnson away vs Blackpool Not a Leicester player but the Forest Player (not sure if it was the keeper) walking the ball in the net from kick off, after Clive Clarke heart attack. Obviously there are more important goals, but these are some I remember fondly for various reasons
  7. I was watching Question Time last night, their was a interesting point made by a young Muslim woman who attended a certain mosque frequently. She stated that whilst the majority are just practising their faith peacefully, there is a seedy underbelly going on with Saudi Preachers teaching young 7 year old children the stricter/hardline form of Islam (can't remember the name she gave) and funding through the Saudi government. I thought she brought up an interesting point, with regards to how mosques whilst on the face of it condemn, what really happens within the confides of certain Mosques?
  8. For me we need to increase another 10,000 seats. Many people are missing out on season tickets...myself included. Its not that I/we won't go week in week out at home the difference is because I/we can't! I would happily pay the £40 odd pounds a month DD for a season ticket. I do begrudge in some cases £40/50 for one match. The demand has been there for a few seasons now and doesn't look like decreasing any time soon, even a poor Premier League Campaign sells out at pretty much 95+ percent capacity. I think the owners are just happy with how things are, and won't increase as it doesn't make business sense for them to maybe on a £££ perspective. There surely needs to be some movement on this over the course of next season else there never will be a right time to extend, Then when will be a right time???
  9. You can usually tell after a few games if the player is potentially good enough. For me he just looks lost, and not up to it. And other players don't seem as confident when there on the field. (same goes for Musa & Mendy) Ndidi is the perfect example,comes in and looks settled, and you can tell he has something about him after so few games.
  10. Shakespeare will have a massive job on his hands in the summer. He can be a tad relaxed at the minute as everything is unknown, and seems to have been "steadying the ship" after Claudio. Once the contract is on the table things will change, as now his reputation will be thrust more into the spotlight. Him and Stowell won't be able to do everything, new recruitment behind the scenes and extra coaches will be needed. Player recruitment and players leaving will (first team/fringe players) shape some of our decisions in the summer. This will be new to him, he maybe relying on the experience of others within the boardroom (with may help but we all seen some poor player recruitment at the start of this year) The owners will have to get this decision right. (they usually are) And to how things will look going forward, especially with no CL to offer, think his appointment and getting the recruitment right in the summer are massive. This is one of this biggest in the last few years, as to if we stay a mid table team or really do go for a top 6 push.
  11. Slim has been a bit hit and miss with Afcon and injuries, had he stayed fit him and Vards could have made a decent partnership. At first they struggled to gel and seemed maybe, personality clashes or both wanting to be the "main striker" as they seemed distant with each other at the start. Like when one or the other scored they were slow to congratulate each other....maybe if anything, more on Vardys part on the latter...but maybe that's me reading more into it than needed. Only recently has both seemed to be on the same wavelength when on the field together...it looks as Slim is having to adapt his game, as he is trying to chase and pressure like Oka which he doesn't always seem comfortable with. They are different in how our team may need to set up, as Slim being more a target man for crosses from deep or the wings, and Vardy being a ball over the top to chase. It looks to be hard to implement both in our game plan at times. Hopefully a pre season together may get them both up to scratch and firing on all cylinders, it could be very good partnership, as the potential is shown at times as to how good they both could be.
  12. Second half they gave it a good go. shame the first wasn't like that. if Sterling swinging his leg at the ball and blocking Kaspers view isn't interfering with play, then I don't know what is. It shouldn't have counted. But on replays Mahrez challenge looks outside the box. I have to admit as much as Mahrez hadn't missed a pen (not sure how today's counts haha) I'm never 100 percent confident when he steps up for a pen. Vards should take them for me.
  13. Players seemed like they had the mentality that they were beat before a ball was kicked as they know the line up will bring little joy. Kings not a starter and Fuchs ain't a centre half so we're playing with 9 when I seen the line up I wasn't expecting anytihing and knew Vardy would be an isolated figure. just tick the game off and it's nearer to the end of the season as changes will be made in the summer.
  14. Urgency in our play as disappeared after 10 mins, playing like we're safe. carrying a few players this half, the 2 cm's slowing our play down when we're in possession. Oka off for Slim second half pointless putting balls in the box with no height up top improvements second half hopefully
  15. Limited Arsenal to very little. We hopefully approach the second half with a bit more purpose to attack than sit deep. At times we really would help ourself if we were more comfortable in possession, than 3/4 passes then long ball, which then just invites pressure as we have lost the ball.
