The "do they mean us?" thread pt 3

The debate about manager of the year seem to be Moyes v Pep. Bit weird that if we finish 3rd and get to a cup final Rodgers will get overlooked. Sign of the times perhaps that we are seen as big time. People arent impressed with us finishing top 4 and getting to an FA Cup final. But West Ham getting 4th is like the greatest achievement of the last 5 years.

 

You’d hope, after last year exposed our limitations, that the media and our fans would realize it isn’t as easy as he’s sometimes made it look!

A question was just on tipping point, in 2018 which footballer made history by scoring the first goal decided by VAR? Jamie Vardy Kelechi, Iheanacho or Rihad Mahrez were the options they went for Mahrez

TalkSPORT on about Maguire this evening and Durham was saying he is a great player. 

 

He went on to say that any Leicester fan who disagrees with this and was happy we rinced Man Utd for £80m can not have their opinion taken seriously as we are jealous and upset about losing him. 

 

He also said he was much better than Fofana and Evans. Seems he has a right ball ache about Leicester at the moment.

I can sum up their broadcasting/journalistic technique thusly:

I'm working alongside him at Derby-Norwich on Saturday so I may mention this to him.

He was described in The Guardian as an "expert phone-in troll, arrogantly spouting inflammatory football opinions in the hope of prompting some indignant phone rage from an uppity fan."

What he’s saying is not completely untrue, Maguire is a very good defender and gets way to much stick. However, if he were still at Leicester now, he would be 4th choice CB. 
If we play a back 3 he doesn’t get in ahead of Evans, Soyuncu or Fofana.

I swear he's abused Maguire before saying he's not good enough. Absolute clown.

 

The reality is Maguire is a decent player, got limitations which get exposed and will be villified at Utd but also is very good at set pieces and good on the ball.

 

We haven't missed him though, since he's left we've been in the top 4 every week of the season bar 2 weeks or something daft. We've also conceded a similar amount of goals to Man Utd and the money has been invaluable to us.

 

Geoff, does Durham ever wear anything other than that heinous flowery shirt?

Durham always 'bigs up' England and England players. This is just more of that.

I said when he left us. Colossal in the air and very good on the ball. But often gets caught out of position and gets turned way too easily. 
 

People saying oh he wouldn’t be in our side now well he would because we wouldn’t have signed Fofana had we not sold Maguire.

Also @UpTheLeagueFox off air does he admit to being a professional troll? He clearly is saying those Maguire things to get a reaction out of Leicester fans. I mean everything he says is just to get a reaction, seems a pretty sad life even if he does get paid for it.
