  1. Not even a Rumour just some betting odds, probably loads of Man U fan betting/hoping/wishing he'd go.
  2. Who actually looks at their notes and coins, mine go hand, wallet/pocket, hand, shop. Although I rarely use cash now anyway.
  3. https://www.lcfc.com/news/1590219/blackpool-loan-for-dewsburyhall/press-release?fbclid=IwAR3y4mH1EJgbeNQh5fHB3_ofMYmmT080INGjjkz9zGI8chWwUOkD1ZN560k Leicester City youngster Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall will take the next step in his development on loan with League 1 side Blackpool until the end of the season, subject to Football League approval. - Young midfielder Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall joins Blackpool on loan - The 21-year-old made his Leicester City debut against Brentford on Saturday - Shepshed-born Dewsbury-Hall is a product of Leicester City’s Academy The 21-year-old midfielder made his professional debut for the Foxes as a second half substitute in the 1-0 Emirates FA Cup win over Brentford at Griffin Park on Saturday after a fine first half of the campaign for Leicester City’s Development Squad. Dewsbury-Hall has been a regular in Premier League 2 for City’s youngsters and was named the Club’s Development Squad Player of the Season for 2018/19 – a campaign that ended with him captaining an Under-21s side in the Hong Kong Sevens tournament last summer. The Shepshed-born central midfielder has come through the ranks of Leicester City’s Academy and has continually caught the eye with a series of consistent and industrious displays from the middle of the park. He will now continue his development with Simon Grayson’s Blackpool, who are currently 15th in League One ahead of away fixtures against promotion-chasers Wycombe Wanderers and Oxford United in the next week.
  4. Money wise maybe but players like KDH have no experience of playing professional competitive football in a real life environment, I really don't see how that is beneficial to his career. By moving to a L2 side earlier and playing regular football they will have the opportunity to show they are good enough for L1 and the Championship. When they move on you can always include a buy back clause to get your £300/400k. Obviously it all depends on the individual players. I just get the feeling we hang on to players too long before giving them that experience as someone who has trained and managed Engineering Apprentices I've learnt never to underestimate their true potential.
  5. I'm referring to those who fill up the u23s for several seasons never looking like getting in the 1st team being moved on and blocking opportunities for those younger early developers which you then go on to mention.
  6. If the club don't believe a player is ever likely to break into our 1st team surely they should be moved on for our benefit and theirs. I think we're actually doing them a disservice and blunting their development by hanging on to them. But then I'm not in favour of the U23 system at best it should be U21 or if they want a PL2 just do it as a reserves set up so you can mix young with experience whilst giving squad payers game time. We then wouldn't get managers moaning that their squad players can't last 90mins when they only play once a month.
  7. Who could turn out to be a decent PL player.
  8. https://www.teamtalk.com/news/exclusive-everton-leicester-chasing-sunderland-star-brandon-taylor EXCLUSIVE: Everton, Leicester chasing Sunderland centre-back Date published: Sunday 26th January 2020 10:20 Sunderland are bracing themselves to lose another one of their young starlets with Brandon Taylor attracting interest from a host of Premier League clubs, we can reveal. The 20-year-old central defender has already featured for Sunderland in the FA Cup and EFL Trophy – but he is yet to make his league debut. Taylor could now be ready to leave the Stadium of Light before making his league debut – as he is wanted by a number of top-flight clubs. Leicester, Everton, Southampton and Bournemouth have checked on Taylor in recent weeks and they are all ready to make a move.
  9. Some of our best signings in recent years have been unknown/under the radar lower league players, some of our worst have been relatively well known and costly.
  10. That's why I started the post with - Assuming these are true figures and don't include empty ST holder seats.
  11. Assuming these are true figures and don't include empty ST holder seats. https://www.dailystar.co.uk/sport/football/premier-league-club-fills-stadium-21344139 The Premier League draws in millions of people a year, be it devoted season ticket holders or tourists keen to catch a glimpse of the action. Rarely do you spot too many empty seats inside the stadiums of those in the top flight, but they can't all sell out every week, can they?

  12. How did we get to comparing Maguire with Mahrez apart from the fact they both played for us and both left just like loads of other players what is the actual point of it?
  13. If he's looking for the most secure job he should stay where he is.
