  1. Leicester and Leicestershire map from 1630 https://www.davidrumsey.com/luna/servlet/detail/RUMSEY~8~1~285255~90057928:Leicestershire-?sort=Pub_List_No_InitialSort%2CPub_Date%2CPub_List_No%2CSeries_No&qvq=q:leicester;sort:Pub_List_No_InitialSort%2CPub_Date%2CPub_List_No%2CSeries_No;lc:RUMSEY~8~1&mi=1&trs=30
  2. I can now add James Justin to the list of players who have proved my judgement in players to be wonderfully abject.
  3. Hang on, isn't that you judging today?
  4. He's off to Klopp in the summer.
  5. I don’t think anyone knows what you’re actually getting with King. It’s been so long since he played a competitive game for City that making any confident prediction that s hard. Hopefully, for both King and Lueven, you get the steady, dependable and occasional big game scoring Andy King. A steady 7/10 every game.
  6. Let me get the right. Nice £100m training ground, shame about the social media promotion during a week where Christmas has been cancelled, Dover is ****ed and a new strain of a deadly virus is hogging the limelight.
  7. The numbers are correct. The sample size for both are small (and far smaller for the league).
  8. I used this season (and both competitions) because that’s what Hamza’s mum has been bleating about. Plus, to misplace a third of your passes in a cameo off the bench is remarkable. Previous seasons are at 85%, which is still lower than Mendy. This is a lovely article on why, contrary to what the one eyed king would have us believe, Mendy has been quite good https://t.co/RW40Yce0RL
  9. Is this thread a wind up? Passing - the simple thing you’d like a midfielder to do. Hamza’s pass completion in the league 65% Mendy’s pass completion in the league 91.2% let that 65% sink in a bit. Every 3rd pass misses. His passing is 2% better than Kasper ffs. That does shoot up to 85% in Europe but that pesky Mandy infuriatingly stats at 91%. Tackling - the thing he’s supposedly good at Hamza’s average tackle per game in the league 0.5. Interceptions 0. Clearances 0 Mendy’s average tackles per game in the league 1.5. Inte
  10. Could people just add their mother's maiden name and the name of their first pet...
  11. Lest we forget, Dan Roan is a ****.
  12. Still just Danny Tiatto with an Afro
  13. Can anyone compete with my agent? We'd previously had our house on the market with a major online only company and paid them to do accompanied viewings. We'd had views and bids in double quick time but took it off after my wife fell pregnant. A few years later we're ready to move so we ring them up to get it re-listed as we've found our dream home. Agent was too busy to come back to our house to view it and said to stick with the old price. We click the button, set availability to all the time as we want to sell and move pronto. After a few days there'd been lots of views of the ad
  14. FFP - Mike Newell - he seemed to score every time we went. Then I was amazed that he went to a division 'above'. There were actual divisions above! FG - Plymouth 87 (I think) FM - First clear memory - Beating Norwich 2-0 in the League Cup in 88. I think they were top of the old Div 1 at the time.
  15. Good business all round. We get a known quantity at a reduced rate and Papys gets a place at a top half team and the chance to play in a league that will keep him on the radar of scouts.
  16. This isn’t a doom mongering post more one of practicalities. People frequently refer to our amazing scouting and ability to sign and sell on stars and cite Mahrez, Kante and Vardy as examples of our success. However, with the exception of Kante who is the freakish of all outliers, we’ll never sign players like them again. Not because they don’t exist but because we can’t afford to look at them. Kante, as a signing, was a complete freak. We signed an elite level player at their peak who for some reason wasn’t at an elite level club. The player who joined was the finished article and t
  17. Any pass that directly leads to a shot/attempt on goal. Anything immediately cleared wouldn’t count.
  18. He’s done well but he’s done well in three matches. The more he plays the more he’ll be scouted and a profile established and then we’ll see how good he can become.
