I do not accept that it is a "very very small minority" on here.  It’s probably 20 or 25% of the volume of posts.  It’s like trudging through sewage at times, even when we are doing well.

 

Don’t downplay this aspect of our fanbase.  For me it is the one disappointing thing about the club.

Sadly, society has a very large number of idiots.

During the title winning season I felt like Vardy was going to score every week, I’m feeling like that now with Barnes. 
 

The way he glides past and then powers away from defenders, without getting carried away is reminiscent of Bale in the season before he got his move to Madrid! 

Always a player when on the ball you get excited, he makes things happen has all the attributes needed to be truly world class.

It may seem like its a large amount of our fan base but I don't actually think it is. When we lose, some people do let emotions get the better of them and may say things that are a bit over board but the people that constantly slate individual players and the manager etc are in the minority. The booing of individual players was definitely a very small minority

I criticised him a lot last season and praised him a lot this season. He's been superb this season and pushed on a lot. But his finishing and lack of decision making and composure in front of goal last season was poor and deserved criticism, don't really see what the problem is with criticising him last season was. Thankfully he's improved it a lot this season and it's pushed him on to the next level.

Because people are far too quick to criticise, anyone should of been able to see the talent he has, criticism of a young player still learning his trade is pointless and just so negative.

Unfortunately they’ll always be fans who are impatient and just cannot see the wood for the trees, the criticism of him was naive and pointless, but that’s just my opinion.

Our 2nd best player 

 

most improved footballer in England this season, one of the emerging superstars of English Football 

 

This boy has it all ! 
 

from carrying out flowers for the 2016 trophy ceremony and forming a ballboy guard of honour that day to now having the world at his feet is a remarkable journey 

 

One of the most exciting young players in world football and we have to recognise Rodgers has helped bring him to the boil 

 

they are made for each other 

 

this boy is special, no young player at this club has given me goosebumps since Heskey, Barnes can go and eclipse Emile

I have no problem with criticising players, nobody is above criticism, even Vardy, arguably my favourite ever Leicester player, has had me giving the odd sigh these last few weeks. 

 

Some of the stuff I read on Barnes last season still sticks in my head 'championship player at best' - 'no better or worse than damari Gray'. Truly baffling stuff.

He's on 9 PL goals now, Maddison on 8 now. If you look at all the players who've ever got double-figures for us in the PL they'd be in great company if they got there. All are pretty unanimously well-loved by Leicester fans.

24 - Vardy 15/16

23 - Vardy 19/20

20 - Vardy - 17/18

18 - Vardy - 18/19

17 - Mahrez - 15/16

13 - Cottee - 99/00

13 - Vardy - 16/17

12 - Claridge - 96/97

12 - Ferdinand - 03/04

12 - Mahrez - 17/18

12 - Vardy - 20/21*
11 - Dickov - 03/04

11 - Ulloa - 14/15

10 - Cottee - 98/99

10 - Heskey - 96/97

10 - Heskey - 97/98

Only criticism of his majestic performance today was he always looked to cut in when getting a defender 1v1, they were expecting it and you just wanted him to pin his ears back and go for the line instead, he's well capable of it. Still, that may have been a tactical call by Brendan.

A new contract will surely be coming his way in the next 6 months? 3 years left on his current one which is a decent amount of time, but we want to tie him down long term.

 

Genuinely been world class this season, long may it continue.

Yeah there'll be a new 5 year deal on 80k a week +
