  1. OS James Maddison, Ben Chilwell, Çağlar Söyüncü and Ricardo Pereira all made headlines on a busy evening of Leicester City representation on the international stage on Thursday. More on this story... Ndidi’s Nigeria Open 2021 AFCON Qualifying With A Win - Ben Chilwell started and James Maddison made his senior debut from the bench as England qualified for the UEFA European Championships - Chilwell made three assists in the first half as the Three Lions beat Montenegro 7-0 at Wembley Stadium - Maddison emerged from the bench in the 56th minute to make his maiden senior England appearance - Çağlar Söyüncü played the full 90 and kept a clean sheet as Turkey also qualified with a 0-0 draw against Iceland - Ricardo Pereira made an assist in his first Portugal appearance since the 2018 FIFA World Cup in a 6-0 win over Lithuania Chilwell registered a brilliant trio of assists inside 24 minutes and Maddison made his debut from the bench in England's 7-0 victory over Montenegro to seal UEFA European Championship qualification. Earlier in the day, in Istanbul, meanwhile, Söyüncü played a key role in securing a clean sheet for his country as Turkey also booked their spot at EURO 2020 with a 0-0 draw against Iceland. Elsewhere, Ricardo made an assist on his first appearance since the 2018 FIFA World Cup for Portugal as the current EURO holders edged closer to qualification with a 6-0 win over Lithuania in Faro-Loulé. Turkey also qualified for UEFA EURO 2020 as Çağlar Söyüncü played the full 90 minutes in a 0-0 draw with Iceland. The first fixture of the evening involving Foxes representation saw Turkey host Iceland at Ali Sami Yen Spor Kompleksi with Söyüncü and his colleagues knowing a draw would be enough. Turkey endured a late scare, however, as a superb corner from Gylfi Sigurðsson found Hörður Björgvin Magnússon at the far post but his effort was blocked on the line by Merih Demiral. As a result, Söyüncü's side qualify and are currently second in Group H, following France's late 2-1 victory over Moldova at the Stade de France, putting the world champions clear by two points. Chilwell, on the other hand, continued his excellent domestic form in an England shirt with three assists in the opening half-an-hour of a stunning 7-0 win for the Three Lions over Montenegro at Wembley. Ben Chilwell made his 10th appearance for England on Thursday. The Leicester City Academy graduate's cross-field pass was converted by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for England's opener before the young left-back's searching cross was nodded home by captain Harry Kane. On 24 minutes, the 22-year-old was the provider again for former Foxes loanee Kane, who completed a 38-minute hat-trick after Marcus Rashford had also added his name to the scoresheet in London. After the interval, Maddison was introduced to the action on 56 minutes to make his maiden senior appearance for his country, while an Aleksandar Sofranac own goal and Tammy Abraham's strike made it 7-0. Gareth Southgate's side have also qualified and currently lead by a margin of three points in Group A, with a far superior goal difference, following Czech Republic's 2-1 win over Kosovo in Plzeň. Ricardo Pereira was typically impressive for Portugal against Lithuania. Finally, Ricardo also returned to the international stage to make an appearance for Portugal for the first time since the UEFA Nations League holders' run to the Round of 16 at the 2018 World Cup in Russia. Portugal were scintillating at Estádio Algarve with Cristiano Ronaldo netting a hat-trick alongside efforts from Pizzi, Gonçalo Paciência and Bernardo Silva - assisted by Ricardo - in a 6-0 win over Lithuania. However, Fernando Santos' second-placed side are only one point above Serbia in Group B ahead of Sunday's visit to Luxembourg, while the Serbians tackle already-qualified Ukraine at Red Star Stadium.
  2. Part of the problem is that the more Madders is pushed by everyone to start the more he'll dig his heels in to show who's the Boss.
  3. The Stats Surrounding Leicester City’s Season So Far FIRST TEAM Published 1 hr 24 mins ago With Leicester City making their best-ever start to a Premier League season, LCFC.com takes a look at the statistics behind their success so far in 2019/20. The Foxes head into the November international break with eight wins from 12 matches, losing just twice – to leaders Liverpool and 20-times champions of England Manchester United – in the process. They are currently in second position, with 26 points on the board, and have already broken both Club and Premier League records this campaign. As the final international break of the year gets underway, we reflect on four months of riveting Premier League action for City. The attack Jamie Vardy's 11 Premier League strikes sees him, to date, positioned at the top of the goalscoring rankings in 2019/20. Leicester City have the second-best goalscoring record of 2019/20, having netted 29 times in 12 games, averaging a strike rate of just over 2.4 goals per game. This season, only Manchester City have scored more goals than the Foxes, who have netted more times than unbeaten Premier League leaders Liverpool. They have only failed to score in two of their 12 matches – during the 0-0 draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers on the opening day of the season, and against Manchester United, in a 1-0 loss, back in September. City also possess in their ranks the top-flight’s leading goalscorer, Jamie Vardy, who has scored 11 times, taking his overall Premier League tally to 91 goals in 188 appearances for the Football Club. The midfield James Maddison and Youri Tielemans have both excelled for the Foxes in 2019/20. The trio of Wilfred Ndidi, Youri Tielemans and James Maddison, has been pivotal to Leicester City’s fine run of form so far this season. Nigeria international Ndidi has completed more tackles (59) than any other player in the Premier League in 2019/20, and is followed closely by City team-mate Ricardo Pereira (54). In addition, Tielemans and Maddison, have contributed to a combined 12 goals this campaign, while wideman Harvey Barnes is the league’s joint-second assist maker with four to his name. Spaniard Ayoze Pérez, meanwhile, often occupies the opposite wing to Barnes, and scored his first goals for the Football Club with a hat-trick in the 9-0 victory over Southampton in October. The defence Northern Ireland defender Jonny Evans has been impressive all season. No side has conceded fewer goals than Leicester City have this season, with only eight efforts breaching their back line and goalkeeper. That has led to the Foxes earning an impressive goal difference of +21 after just 12 games, and only Manchester City have a better for and against ratio. Kasper Schmeichel, meanwhile, is joint-first in the clean sheet rankings, with Sheffield United’s Dean Henderson and Manchester City’s Ederson earning as many shutouts. Also ranking highly in the defensive charts is Çağlar Söyüncü, who has made the fifth-highest number of clearances (66) in the Premier League term. The team Leicester City sit second in the Premier League table after 12 matches. Overall, as a team, Leicester City have made 266 tackles in 2019/20 – 34 more than second-placed Brighton & Hove Albion. As the Premier League’s second-highest goalscorers, City are also second in the rankings for both goals from inside the box (24) and goals outside the box (five). In addition, only three outfits – Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool – have made more passes than Leicester City’s 6,348, with Çağlar Söyüncü (835) ranking fourth in the individual standings, and Jonny Evans (757) placing ninth. Finally, City’s 247 crosses are the fifth-highest among the Premier League’s sides this term, with Manchester City, Liverpool, Everton and Sheffield United the only other teams to make more. https://www.lcfc.com/news/1494674/the-stats-surrounding-leicester-citys-season-so-far/featured

  5. https://www.leicestermercury.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/leicester-city-boss-brendan-rodgers-3531995 Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers discusses the improvements made by winger Demarai Gray after his recent impressive performances from the substitutes' bench ByJordan Blackwell 07:00, 13 NOV 2019 Demarai Gray’s development is no longer at a standstill and Brendan Rodgers is predicting the winger to make “big strides” over the next few seasons. Gray has been Rodgers’ go-to man off the bench in recent weeks as Leicester City have recorded four straight Premier League wins to enter the November international break in second place. The 23-year-old wide-man has been effective in his cameos, producing an eye-catching display in Saturday’s 2-0 win over Arsenal. Rodgers says Gray has responded well to their conversations, and to the “hurt” he felt when he was left out of the matchday squad for the opening two games. “I’ve always really liked Demarai as a player from the outside looking in,” said Rodgers. “But he’d gone through a period where he stood still in his development. “When I came in he probably expected to be either playing or at least in the squad. And when he wasn’t in the squad for the first two games of the season it hurt him – but he knew why. I think that’s important. Giving clarity to players is very important. “From that he’s been absolutely brilliant. He upped his intensity in training and we speak a lot in terms of what we want from him. “I told him not to be too down – I know he wants to start but the game is also about the team that finishes. He has to make sure he is ready to make an impact. And he does that. Leicester City latest “He is so good in training and he’s in an environment where he’s improving all the time. I just think over the next few years there are big strides that he will make.” Rodgers also rejected any suggestions that Gray had an attitude problem. He said: “He is a good guy. He’s a wonderful boy, he trains every day and is really professional. “But my job is to rinse more out of that and to push them, not let them become comfortable. “I didn’t want him to be a player who could be in and around a mid-table Premier League team and maybe nick a move somewhere else. “Our job is to develop players to be the best and to grow – and try and help this club get up towards the top. So there’s no ego at all. I repeat, there are no guys here with an ego.”
  6. If we're going to consider banning anything it should be God Save the Queen The lyrics are questionable to say the least especially the last verse. God save our gracious Queen, Long live our noble Queen, God save the Queen! Send her victorious, Happy and glorious, Long to reign over us, God save the Queen! O Lord our God arise, Scatter our enemies, And make them fall! Confound their politics, Frustrate their knavish tricks, On Thee our hopes we fix, God save us all! Not in this land alone, But be God's mercies known, From shore to shore! Lord make the nations see, That men should brothers be, And form one family, The wide world ov'er. From every latent foe, From the assasins blow, God save the Queen! O'er her thine arm extend, For Britain's sake defend, Our mother, prince, and friend, God save the Queen! Thy choicest gifts in store, On her be pleased to pour, Long may she reign! May she defend our laws, And ever give us cause, To sing with heart and voice, God save the Queen! Lord grant that Marshal Wade May by thy mighty aid Victory bring. May he sedition hush, And like a torrent rush, Rebellious Scots to crush. God save the Queen! At least Rule Britannia is about the Country not focusing on an individual and is a decent tune. GSTQ is an absolute dirge. Of course if the Scots vote for Independence maybe we should make it a law to never sing it without including the last verse
  7. It aint that great though as they ignored us for most of the season.

  10. If this is all fact and he regrets not going to Arsenal I can only believe from this that his interest was/is purely down to money.
  11. Arsenal would be where we are if they had Brendan.............................................. and our player's.
  12. So everyone agrees it’s a penalty but just laugh at the fact it wasn’t reviewed yet there’s serious debate over off sides that are a hairs width over. Just makes a mockery of the whole VAR set up. I mean really what is the point of it if blatant incidents are just laughed off.
