    Tielemans

    Great interview and just what the fans want to hear. Superb debut but let's hope we fans give him a chance. Not to put a downer on things but the last time I remember everyone getting so excited by a debut was probably Zsolt Laczko against Coventry and we all know what happened after that.

    Finally at last someone really gets it.

    Kasper Schmeichel...

    Of course there is just the possibility the Peter Schmeichel, who does I think know a bit about the game, might just be right in what he says about our manager. He's not an employee of LCFC and has said some pretty favourable stuff about the club in the past. Of course some can say he shouldn't comment but he's as much entiteld to air his opinion as any of us on here and probably knows a lot more about the game than most of us.

    Kasper Schmeichel...

    I think we should just take names out of this for a moment. In whatever field you work if you are a manager a large proportion of your job is managing people. For the workforce it is about adapting to possibly new management techniques. A good manager will understand how to get the best out of his/her team. The best way for all is a symbiosis but of course this is not always possible. So in a usual context it is likely that the employee/s who is/are not liking/responding to the manager will seek to leave or be told to leave. In football however, the normal work place dynamic is turned on its head. In almost all cases the players, and especially the best/key players, are more important to the club both in terms of perfomances on it and in in terms of monetary value. Hence what has happened at Man Utd and it hasn't worked out too badly there. Of course very very few on here have the slightest idea what is going on but there has now been a number of these such incidents as well as "stories" from what I think most on here would consider to be reputable journalists to indicate that all is not well. It will not be long before the majority of the squad that won the league will either have left or been sold. To those just wishing to get rid of senior players I say be careful what you wish for. I hear the arguments that so and so can just be replaced, well the truth is they can't. As we have seen with Mahrez, we haven't and aren't able to replace that level of player at a club such as ours. The same rationale of course applies to replacing the manager, the next may be worse, though he is probaly cheaper to replace. On the pitch we look like a team that badly needs to keep its leaders. We have very few of them. It is all well and good playing youngsters with their unbounded enthusiasm but sometimes enthusiasm is not enough.

    Maguire future

    There is a theory that the whole transfer market is dropping. We will see but he's not worth 65 million. There will always be premium transfers for the very best players but clubs have had enough of over paying for players, hence the high number of loans taking place.

    Maguire future

    Gone in the summer. We won't get much more than 30 million as the market is starting to fall.

    Kasper Schmeichel...

    Has to come indirectly from Kaspar surely. Just don't think his father would come out with this unless there are some genuine issues in the camp.

    Palace at Home - Pre Match

    Imperative we win this for me. One team always gets unexpectedly sucked into the relegation scrap and it could just as well be us as any other side.

    Spurs Away Post Match 3-1

    Play the club's only decent striker from the start and maybe we get something? Just asking.

    Unfortunately it is all about putting the ball in the net, something we don't do enough of.

    Albrighton out for the season?

    Big blow our squad is really starting to look thin in numbers and quality.

    The OH Leuven Thread

    How many points from the remaining games do you think you will need to have a chance in the play downs? I presume there's no chance of escaping them.

    So is this potentially good or not?
