    Craig Pawson

    I'm convinced he's got something against us. He's even more frequently a cvnt with us than Jon Moss, who I actually think higher of than I once did

    2 tickets Newport away please

    Surely that's against the rules?

    Silva back to Sporting

    Our problem is the majority of our biggest money signings just haven't worked. Hardly any of them have even managed to break into the side. Maddison's the only £20mil+ one that has worked really.

    Silva back to Sporting

    It's an absolute disgrace if he ends up back there.

    Danny Drinkwater

    His final season was weird. I can't tell if he went off a cliff or if he just remained really consistent yet he looked good in the first half relative to the whole team and looked awful in the second.

    Danny Drinkwater

    Or realises that Ndidi and Drinkwater aren't the only two midfielders available to us in the world.

    Had this as part of a four fold with the others all winning think I got away with that one a bit!

    Danny Drinkwater

    I'm convinced it would be a mistake. - 28 years old, turns 29 in March. - Likely on a six figure a week wage, so becomes one of our highest earners. - No sell on value. Also reckon you'd be paying a good £10mil or more for him as well. - Has barely played in the past year and a half. It's not even him leaving us that bothers me. For example you'd all take Kante or Mahrez back. I'm just not convinced he's worth what we'll pay considering there's no guarantee you'd get the same Drinkwater as before. I think we can do better if our scouts are switched on. I did like him but we sold him at the right kind of time for me (I say kind of because it was a bit too late).

    We need to talk about Wilfred Ndidi

    Have to agree sadly. I think it's likely to be a weakness in his game that you just have to work around. Get him to keep it simple and don't rely on it. As it is, we play a system where he is likely to need to pass better than he can for it to be effective - either change the system or drop him. I'd go for the former.

    We need to talk about Wilfred Ndidi

    It's simple to me - he's a low-block, counter attacking type midfielder playing in a side that wants to dominate the ball. Therefore his gradual pass completion percentage going up isn't particularly valid - because it matters more now than it did when we first signed him (based on the style we're playing). Have him anchoring the back four. Don't let him get forward. No idea what's happened to his shooting. He scored a couple of brilliant goals for us early doors and had a couple of very near screamers too. This season and last he has one goal and it was a complete fluke. Still think he's of use to us but his limitations are being badly exposed in this system and that's too often the case for us now.

    Crystal Palace (A) 15 Dec Pre Match Thread

    If we are the side who loses to Palace without Zaha then for **** sake. In all seriousness I reckon 1-1. Which is just.... meh.
  12. This in a nutshell is why Puel has a lot of doubters. We're a lifeless, dour side. I genuinely don't see us taking a single point off the top six home or away all season. Possibly Manchester United at home if they have a shocker but other than that I'd be surprised. We are not a good team. Being 9th is because of two things - a fortunate fixture list so far where we've dodged inevitable defeats to Chelsea and Manchester City, and plenty of other crap in the league as well. I'm judging the table after 19 games and I'll be amazed if we're in the top half.

    Premier League Home Form Since February

    It's relegation home form. Our away form is what's keeping us out of the discussion.

    Kelechi Iheanacho / Nacho Man

    Cut our losses. Another atrocious waste of money. I've seen enough to be sure he'll never cut it here. No I'm not "revelling in failure" before someone trots it out but I'm fed up of him. It's all baseless hype and no substance with him. Sell.

    Harvey Barnes - West Brom (loan)

    Agree with this. It's obviously not a great standard but it's not like no good players have ever played there.

    Unpopular Opinions You Hold

    World Cups are great but in defining how good players were they're really really misleading. State of any club who buys players on the back of one.

    January Transfer Window Thoughts & Rumours

    I would rather a signing or two in January but I understand not - it's like chasing your losses when you fvck up on previous signings, the solution seems to be do more of the same and hope for better. Am concerned that the squad is still lacking balance though. We're a striker light although it sounds like we might be getting Slimani back anyway?
  18. Dan LCFC

    Up next.. SPURS (H).

    Think we'll get well beaten sadly. We're on an OK run but have had a very favourite run of fixtures. This is where it ends.
  19. Dan LCFC

    Kelechi Iheanacho / Nacho Man

    Nor me. Do think he's capable of a really classy finish but his all-round game is nothing to write about. Can't dribble, isn't actually that quick, passing pretty hit and miss really. With him I feel like he got goals in a situation where the majority of strikers would get goals - coming off the bench for the best side in the league, with the most creative players, against sides that were already beaten. That is no evidence to show he'll be a success in a poorer side. For me sadly he has been found badly wanting on too many occasions. I get the fact he's young but he's been here quite a while now, he HAS had games in that time and more often than not he's done absolutely nothing. I think Slimani was better and I'm far from convinced on him either.
  20. Dan LCFC

    Kelechi Iheanacho / Nacho Man

    I wanted him to succeed, of course I did, I don't know why anyone would want any player we sign to not succeed. But we cannot get away with someone who so frequently offers so little. The problem with Iheanacho are a lot of his faults aren't things you easily eradicate.
  21. Dan LCFC

    Kelechi Iheanacho / Nacho Man

    Iheanacho is awful. Sell. Man City completely had our pants down here. I bet he's on ridiculous money as well. Players obviously develop over time but Iheanacho hasn't even shown signs he'll come close to me. He is more often than not absolutely awful. We won't shift him in January but fingers crossed we get an alternative in. He's such a comedown from Vardy it is unbelievable.

    Fulham 1 - 1 Leicester Post Match Thread

    Fit Vardy and we'd have won the game, and that's despite being awful ourselves. The second half up there with the worst all season which makes the fact we won it all the more baffling. I'd not be in the slightest bit disappointed if we sold Iheanacho. It won't happen because we lack numbers in that area already but Man City really must be pissing themselves at us.

    January Transfer Window Thoughts & Rumours

    We haven't got a prayer of signing someone like Zaha. He isn't leaving Palace for what you'd probably deem a sideways move.

    FA cup 2018/19

    Yeah I'm expecting it to move regardless given the nature of the tie. I'd take basically anything bar Monday night really purely from a selfish point of view. I may be able to do it but it'll be hard. Obviously we need Saturday half 5. We have nowhere near enough of them away compared to the others we're regularly given, particularly early Saturday.
