    Firstly, a quick thank you to Leicester City for the 15/16 season and CL run which gave me the happiest memories of my life. Anyway reality struck me recently, a reality I’ve been hiding from. A letter from student finance outlining I have £41,000 in student loan debt still to be paid. This has tipped me over the edge. I never wanted to go to University, I didn’t know what I wanted to do at aged 18, I still felt like a kid. I was young, foolish and was talked into it by teachers and my parents. I just wanted to make them happy, so I went. Now I feel more depressed then ever, lost, hopeless, wondering where does it all end. A 41,00 pound bill before even saving for things like a car, a house, or living the life I want like going travelling or starting my own business. I saved £10,000 this year but it feels like nothing in comparison to the above and the end goal feels like a distant dream. I’ve been unemployed since September, with no willpower and struggling to sleep. Been lurking this thread for a while and felt this was the best place to let it all out because I’m not in a good place right now.

    Just as we start to get going!!!

    Soyuncu and Pascanu if Maguire, Morgan and Evans aren’t available.

    Harvey Barnes - West Brom (loan)

    Is he better on the wing or at number 10?
  4. If I recall correctly, he is due back this month
  5. I think CM, RW and ST are the main 3 priorities. However in my opinion we already have players at the club we could integrate into the squad instead of spunking 30m on another Silva. January: 1) Get rid of Iborra or Silva and promote Choudhury. Then sign a quality CM in the summer to compete with Mendy/Ndidi and keep Choudhury as 4th choice. 2) We need a RW. Why not see what Ndukwu can do from the bench, before spending 30m in the summer on a potential flop. Summer: Integrate Benkovic and Barnes into the squad and also Elder. I don’t see why we’d have given Elder a new contract unless the plan was for him to replace Fuchs.

    Fulham (A) Pre-Match

    Morgan and Evans Vs Fulham Maguire and Soyuncu Vs Spurs I don’t think Morgan and Evans deserve to be dropped, but 2 games in the space of 3 days will require rotation. It will give a chance for Maguire and Soyuncu to fight for a starting place.

    Watford post-match 2-0 Puel out chit-chat

    Back four were fantastic again. 4 games, 3 clean sheets and 1 goal conceded. Morgan and Evans in particular deserve some praise. They’ve been solid for 4 games in a row now and have faced target men, pacy strikers and attacking midfielders. Watford thrown everything at them and they responded with bodies on the line, blocks, tackles, interceptions. Fantastic defensive display from the pair of them. Also Pereira has been improving defensively every game. For me the only way Maguire or Soyuncu get into the side is if we switch to a back 3.

    Or maybe Diabate for the extra pace on the counter?

    4 assists for Albrighton this season in all competitions. Would be great if he managed to get double figures for assists this season.

    Evans is the best defender we’ve had since Huth. Solid player

    Mendy player of the season and Chilwell young player of the season for me!

    Watford (H) pre match

    Is Ghezzal available?

    Watford (H) pre match

    Schmeichel Pereira, Maguire, Evans, Chilwell Mendy, Ndidi Ghezzal, Maddison, Albrighton Vardy Hopefully Ghezzal and Maguire are fit. I’m interested to see how Ghezzal performs again after his display against Burnley.
