  1. LCFC 1-0 Sheff Utd Post Match

    Pretty shoddy performance, especially given that was a bit of a makeshift Sheff United team. Hopefully we keep getting lucky with the FA Cup draws. Highlights the need to heavily invest in the summer and bring in more players capable of actually playing football to a high level. Mahrez was sublime.
  2. V The Blades - Match thread

    Our defence is so bad. Really hope we invest heavily in it in the summer.
  3. Already 100% sold. I like this way of managing. His attempts to actually play football and his attempts to bring through young talent. Not since Pearson have I been willing to ride through bad times, feeling confident that the manager's methodology will do the club good in the long term.
  4. Everton 2-1 A Post Match Thread

    Did they show Niasse missing two sitters?

It was difficult also for Riyad,” said the Frenchman. “We have to understand (all) parts: for me, for the squad, for the player. We will accept the decision, it was a decision taken between the two clubs. “Of course I have all confidence about the owner to take a good decision about Riyad for the future and after we will see with Riyad when he can come back with us. “All the players and staff will help him to come back with a smile and to enjoy his football. “Players know it will be difficult sometimes for Riyad. We have a fantastic group, a fantastic squad, all the players have a fantastic relationship. All the players will give their best for Riyad.” Can't see anywhere here where Puel is annoyed with Riyad - he's a victim or circumstance in this instance. He couldn't be in the squad last night if we were willing to sell him as he'd need to go for a medical.
  6. A good window?

    I didn't expect us to move half as much as we did haha. Hence why that was the only disappointment

    Haha well that's like saying Iborra has Mahrez or Albrighton ahead of him. Barkley's always been a winger/attacking mid hasnt he
  8. A good window?

    Only disappointment is that Benny is somehow still here.

    Pretty sure he knew he'd be a periphery player there. Never gonna get in ahead ahead of Kante, Fabregas or Bakayogo. Probably got a sweet little pay rise and a nice house in West London now though.
  10. Well done the Thais

    Yeah nice one. It would have been genuinely one of the dumbest moves I've ever seen, selling the guy on deadline day with no quality replacement in sight.
  11. Will Mahrez go for 100 million.

    No issue with Mahrez wanting to move and no issue with us demanding a ridiculous fee considering the circumstances. Happy to see him leave for a quality club in the summer but we need him or someone with/close to his ability and were not gonna find that in 12 hours. Put in another 4 months of class and he'll have a few options I imagine.
  12. Will Mahrez go for 100 million.

    Did we break him in the league cup quarter final? I remember him looking a bit broken at one stage. The only other person I could imagine is Brahim Diaz. Unless we're somehow bagging someone like Bernardo Silva on loan
  13. Will Mahrez go for 100 million.

    We need someone who can come in and replace him ideally. If Man City had that kind of player they wouldn't need Mahrez. Foden is a nice shout though to be fair.

    I don't know, Depoitre looks decent enough to bag goals for them. He's totally isolated though. Mounie started quite well for them, again it could be more a case of being isloated. Looking back, we had a very nice combo of strikers with different qualities. They all looked pretty useless until we started trying to score goals though.

    I vaguely remember that one, I think they made 2 or 3 awful errors and Kane scored a stupidly good goal with his left foot. I think they've just got to suck it up and accept there will be more risk but more chance of scoring if they play further up the pitch without a back 8. They did this in the last 10 or so games of last season and they just looked terrible for the most part. They need to get back to what makes them good and enjoyable to watch. Winning the ball up the pitch and playing fast. There's not much worse than watching your team sit on the edge of their box showing absolutely no ambition for the majority of the game. I hated watching us from April 2016 - October 2017. I'll always be in the camp of sometimes tacking a battering trying to play good/entertaining football than sitting back, bending over trying to grind out a 0-0, eventually just losing anyway.
