Newcastle are just a better side than us now.

They're really not. They just beat a team twice as bad as you think you are. 

 

Newcastle were 20th in pretty much every metric last season and were lucky to finish where they did. A couple of decent players doesn't turn all of that around.

Think it's probably best to reserve judgement on leeds until they face a team like burnley, crystal palace etc. The thing about liverpool is they like letting possession sides have the ball and try and play it around them so they can press them and force errors and like last year with norwich it made them look decent while they were getting battered 4-0. The difference this time around is that liverpool's defence had a shitter and leeds were also very clinical, i think i remember norwich having similar quality chances last year against liverpool but not finishing them, leeds arent known for being clinical either so this was probably an anomaly. 

Watford the first time round were the best example, if doucore could shoot they win against them easily

From January onwards, we have been 20th in pretty much every metric. With absolutely nothing to freshen that up, I dont see what will change.

 

Just a few months back, we lost 4-1, yes 4-1! to ****ing Bournemouth, Solanke scored not 1 but 2 goals! 

 

We have been mediocre at best for the whole of 2020. People can pull faces all they like, but it's a cast iron fact.

 

I hope it changes.

Unfortunately I can't disagree with any of that. I'm not sure where people's confidence in us is coming from

Statistically we were actually expected to be 6th second half of the season, but we werent clinical and the other teams were clinical against us. It's interesting that apparently both halves of the season had similar statiscally predicted outcomes but first half we ended up 2nd and second half we were 14th on form. Think people overrate how good we were first half and how bad we were second half.

Since Norwich at home, we have struggled to break teams down, struggled to score, had absolutely turgid sideways football, no quality final ball, no creativity to find a way through teams, and worrying after lockdown we seemed to also lose the ability to defend as well. We were so easy to setup and play against for pretty much any opposition. I really hope something reinvigorate them but let's face it if getting into the Champions League isnt enough motivation to win a few games, I am not sure what else there is!

I think we need to factor in some of the changes/ improvements we have made. We have a large number of young players we can expect to improve. We have had time to evolve our tatics/approach. We are actively looking to recruit and have a very good recent history of recruitment. We are a good if not great lcfc team. We have the potential to be as good if not better than most of the Leicester teams I have ever known. 

Football is very psychological, and negativity can spread. We are where we are, it.could be better but it could be much worse. We are on the eve of the new season, so let's get behind the lads and push them on to be as great as they can be. Come on you blues.

I watched us since Christmas, we have definitely been shite. They are not many teams that have served up as much insepid tripe as us in that time, the ones that have are in the championship and even 2 of those beat us in the 2nd half of last season!!

Good performance from them and they've done some really good business. Makes it even more frustrating we've only made one signing going into tomorrow's game. If we just had a new CB/Winger it would give us a much needed boost.

We ain't even kicked a ball yet this season and you're coming out with mad bollocks like this?

 

What a fvcking pleb you are. 

Good well thoughtout reply as usual. Perhaps you would like to explain why we are going to be so good being as we won 4 games since January? The Happy Clapper brigade make me laugh! Newcastle have added 2 quality signings for good fees, we have sold Chilwell and brought in a right back.

Im not saying we werent bad, we definitely were, but i think a lot of fans seem to only pay attention when we put the ball in the net, there were a few toin coss games in the second half that didnt go our way while in the first half we seemed to be lucking out on winning games that could have gone either way almost every time. Basically what im saying is we were lucky a lot in the opening half of the season and that luck completely went against us in the second half with the chances we missed. For example people probably look fondly on the sheffield 2-1 away win and the burnley 2 -1 home win and think negatively of the burnley away loss and the spurs loss but we had better chances in both the losses than we did in both the wins.
