Also Evans and Fofana are clearly way better than him as is Soyuncu. 

Regardless of whether they are better, similar or slightly worse. Our 3 CB's who are the envy of the PL costs us around £50m combined. We received £80m for Maguire and a further £5m for them getting CL.

 

Since he has left we have been in the top 4 pretty much the entire time having never finishing higher than 9th when he was with us. 

 

He got his big move, we got obscene money for him which is proving even more invaluable during this pandemic and we are building a side that challenges his and have more dynamic defenders that suit our side than his. 

 

Durham is a bell sniffer.

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. 

He flip flops his opinion daily to bait callers. Its not hard to find clips of him saying the exact opposite to what you've said there.

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

Oh my word, I actually couldn't remember!!! I had to Google it, then realised it was so long ago Mahrez was still in the team...time has definitely flown by!! And my memory is shit :cry:

You can debate Maguire’s quality all along. Bert has covered my opinion. Good in the air but poor when he’s asked to keep a high line. 
 

What I can absolutely say that our footballing style wouldn’t have progressed and some of players have developed significantly now we can play higher up the pitch

Brendan seems to be more of a coach that works on developing players day in day out - obviously as an international manager you can’t do that, and besides, the England players don’t need a coach next - they need someone who is going to set them up tactically the best way possible and win games not nurture talent, as that’s been mainly Southgate’s job for the last few years.

Came across this and I wasn't sure where to put it.  It's called Leicester's Heroes.  I can spot Big Wes, Kante, Ulloa and Ranieri.  Not sure about some of the others though.

 

Too big to post so here's the link:

Maguire was good for us but when you pay £80m for a defender you expect VVD type of effect. Maguire has had some shockers since he went to United. He's still a good player but not a world class player and, rightly or wrongly, for that sort of fee people expect world class performances.

Thanks for that. It’s a shame they didn’t do one for Wasilewski-it would have been a beautiful thing...

David Moyes outlines the Leicester City ‘model’ for other teams to follow

The West Ham boss has praised the work of the club and Brendan Rodgers ahead of the meeting at the London Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

West Ham United manager David Moyes has praised the way Leicester City have built on the title success of 2016 ahead of the meeting between the two sides at the London Stadium. 

City travel to London for the Premier League clash on Sunday afternoon as they look to bounce back from a 2-0 defeat against league leaders Manchester City in their last outing.

That result, coupled with the Hammers’ 3-2 win over Wolves two days later means that City go into the game with a four-point buffer over their opponents in the race for Champions League football.

Talking in his pre-match press conference, Moyes was asked about the threats that Leicester would pose to his team.

“Have we got enough time to talk about Leicester's main threats?” He said, as reported by football.london . “They are an incredibly good side, they are doing really well this season and have done for a while now. They are in the semi-final of the FA Cup, so we are up against a top team and a team who have been competing towards the top end of the league for quite a few seasons now. 

“I think the way they have gone about their business and worked has been very good,” he added.

“Brendan has done a great job, they are competitive, they challenge the top teams at the moment, and have certainly broken into the top six and that is a difficult thing to do.

“They won the Premier League not long ago so they deserve to be in amongst that group but what they have done is shown it was not a one-off, they have built on it and they continue to build on it. They are having a very good season this year, so it is a tough game but we went there and beat them so let's see if we can do that again”

And the West Ham boss has said that a lot of clubs could learn a lesson from the way City have gone about their business in attempting to break into the established Premier League ‘big six’.

“I do think Leicester are a model for a lot of clubs,” he said. “Their recruitment has been really good, there is a stability at the club, we hear quite often about overseas owners going in but I have to say their owners have been a great credit to the way they have gone about their work at the club.

“I don't know the club that well and I can only see it from a distance but they won the league a few years ago they are continuing to compete, they are looking to bring in young players for the future, which obviously compliments the very experienced players they have got at the club already. But where their time comes to move on I think they are building already another team underneath that as well.

“They have done great Leicester and I think Brendan has done very well the two or three years he has been at Leicester.”
