  1. Leicester City are renewing their interest in £2m-rated Oxford United striker Marvin Johnson. According to reports in The Sun, Leicester could be about to add the 26-year-old to their resources up front, despite being close to signing Manchester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho. While they may face competition from Birmingham City and Aston Villa, the fact that former Oxford boss Michael Appleton is now on Leicester's coaching staff could give City the edge in any transfer dealings. Appleton is understood to have recommended Johnson to his new employers after an impressive scoring record at the Kassam Stadium. Oxford shelled out £650,000 for Johnson from Motherwell this time last year and have already rejected offers above £1m for him last January. The Scottish side will get a percentage of any sell-on fee so United are keen to get as much money as they can if they sell him.
  2. Make of this what you will. I don't personally believe it, and whether this would be a good option is anybody's guess. But here's the link below: PS. Apologies if this one has been brought up recently, I didn't spot it in the list on first glance...
  3. Some keepers just can't cut it here, sure he will do well back home like he has done previously. But looks like Leicester are now looking at Jakupovic for an immediate replacement. Surely a sign that this one is slowly wrapping itself up.
  4. Would spend most of the season on his backside whilst Kane belts in the goals? That said, Spurs are at Wembley for home games this year so anything could happen. But Kelechi will want game time, and he won't get it there or Manchester City. We are his only feasible option to progress his career, and our main option to give Vardy some much-needed assistance up-front. Everyone wins right?
  5. Seems that this is coming back to light in the wake of Ron-Robert Zieler's imminent departure to Stuttgart for 4 million Euros. Sources from Leicester Mercury and Hull daily mail below:
  6. A £50 million price tag is an absolute joke. Swansea are metaphorically shifting the goalposts. They slap a price-tag on the midfielder, and as soon as a club matches the valuation, they reject it and up the valuation again. Simply put, they are taking to p*** and trying to take Leicester to the cleaners. Let's not play this annoying little game anymore. Player valuations mean nothing anymore.
  7. Alright then, make that a good defender that the club may possible sell and we will not pay over the odds for...
  8. Think its time to put this one to bed and close the thread. This clearly isn't going to materialise or turn into something from a Leicester City perspective.
  9. I'm tentatively cautious because of previous names that failed to make an impression, such as Gokhan Inler. But there are ones that shone like Esteban Cambiasso. But I'd like to think our somewhat-depleted scouting system (and Jon Rudkin) still manage to find the gems in the transfer market. Welcome to Leicester, Vicente. Suddenly our midfield looks a lot more promising.
  10. Slight off topic, and not proud to admit this but there is one black guy on Love Island, whose skin tone has only seemed to get darker, so it is possible. Back on topic, I can see this being the same kind of saga as Mahrez-to-Arsenal, lots of talk and rumours, but nothing concrete. There was talk about Sigurdsson for the duration of last summer but nothing materialised, and with a £40 million price tag, I am expecting the same. It's a valuation that probably eclipses the transfer value of the rest of Swansea's starting XI, a very subtle way of saying he isn't for sale, but for an extortionate price, we (Swansea) may change our minds and laugh all the way to the bank and probable relegation.
  11. Potential opinion splitter here. I just don't understand where he would fit in our squad or what role he would be given, unless one of our forwards would be imminently leaving. And by that I mean either Leonardo Ulloa or Shinji Okazaki. And don't get me started about the price. Rejecting £20 million is just another way or saying he isn't for sale, and I don't even think he is worth that. Heck, Watford rejected an even bigger offer last year so I find it highly unlikely that this pursuit will lead anywhere.

  13. Thank you for the sarcasm, its certainly appreciated, sadly you didn't spot mine. Not that it changes my opinion in any shape or form. Everyone will interpret things differently, accept it. I give 1 to the guy in question, because he did not look interested. He slumps around the pitch looking like he is either dreaming of a not-so-big money move or a nice holiday. Least the defence shows slightly more enthusiasm, and the fact we can't even score is a reflection on his failure to provide sufficient adequate chances. Don't know what game you watched, but in situations where he would have took the opposition on with his trickery, he just stands still and waits for the over-lap, followed by an under/over-hit pass. You simply cannot deny his confidence is shot, and that is a reflection in his belief and approach on the pitch. There is a laziness that dominates his play, and it is infuriating. But maybe you just just watched a different game.
  14. I judge it based on what I see, be it via my live-stream but thank you for your constructive criticism.
  15. Kasper Schmeichel 4 - Could do nothing about Mawson's thunderous volley from close range, and continues to be horrendously exposed by a static and virtually non-existent back-line. At fault for the second goal on two counts, poor throw out and could have gotten behind Olsson's shot regardless of how well it was hit. Questionable distribution too. Danny Simpson 3 - Same old story. Caught out of position for the second goal, and his distribution continues to be absolutely terrible. Don't recall a single pass finding their mark. Wes Morgan 3 - Also known as the proverbial statue from last week, and not much has changed. Whether he should have been penalised for handball may split opinion, but his increasing lack of awareness in his own box is very alarming. Robert Huth 3 - Should consider him slightly fortunate not to be dismissed for a reckless two-footed challenge, and his frustration almost boiled over when the match was over. Least it showed he still cares a little. Poor. Christian Fuchs 4 - The best of the bad bunch of a back-line. But surely now must be looking over his shoulder as Ben Chilwell continues to improve and challenge for his place, and at times, has looked twice the player that Fuchs is. Riyad Mahrez 1 - Did not look remotely interested, like he has already decided he is leaving in the Summer. For all we know, we sold him last year and brought in his lesser-talented twin, if he has one. Sloppy, lazy and really did not seem bothered. Danny Drinkwater 2 - Utterly ineffective and incapable of passing to players in front to him to kick-start any meaningful forward momentum to trouble Swansea. With all the sideways/backwards passing we do, its little wonder we have not scored in 2017 yet. Wilfred Ndidi 5 - Feel so sorry for this lad, he has walked into a right mess. Certainly tries when the pass actually gets passed to him, but sadly can't do it all on his own. Will get better, but hopefully in the PL rather than the Championship. Marc Albrighton 2 - Completely lost his marker for goal number two, though I will question why he was substituted considering Slimani was brought on at the same time. Seems to be less effective as of late, like the rest of his team. Demarai Gray 4 - Huffed and puffed with very little progress, doesn't seem that much of a team player either. But this is a steep learning curve at such a young age and he will get better. Jamie Vardy 3 - Lack of service once again an issue, but can't say he made the most of chances that came his way. Should have passed on one occasion rather than going it alone, and a poor first tough followed by a wayward shot another chance go begging. Islam Slimani 4 - Spurned a big chance when put through by Mahrez, and almost seemed to keep his head ducked down with a cross that seemed destined for him from six yards out. An improved threat but enough to trouble Fabianski. Ben Chilwell 3 - Brought on when Leicester are again chasing the game to no avail, but why he was on the bench is anyone's guess. Committed two needless fouls to showcase his frustration, and despite Jon Moss' warning, picked up a booking as a result. Daniel Amartey N/A - Came on too late to make any real impression on the game. The match was lost and it would be unfair to critique his performance based on mere minutes of playing time. Claudio Ranieri 2 - Got it completely wrong today, and obviously learned very little from the performance against Derby earlier in the week. Coupled with a couple of tactical errors during substitutions, I find it hard to see how he can save the club from relegation. Jonathan Moss 6 - A decent game from the official who is understandably remembered for Vardy's sending off last season. Got most decisions correct but could have let the game flow a bit more, but we have had a lot worse refereeing shows this season. Swansea City 6 - Hardly spectacular, but we made them look better than they were. Two very well-taken goals, but defensive frailties made them possible. Saw out the game with no real difficulty, and it was the ease of the victory that will bring the most worry. As a side-note, the eagle-eyed fans who watched Sky Sports 1 will see the chairman shaking his head on more than one occasion, that does not bode well for Ranieri. Don't be too surprised if we see immediate radical changes, both on and off the pitch.
