A lot of people believe he played no small part in getting Ranieri sacked. What goes around............

I'm not surprised. I thought it was a strange choice to keep him permanently with his lack of management experience and didn't seem like someone the board would appoint. After having a poor start it seemed likely to em he would get sacked I expect they will now go for someone foreign and should start improving as the side is not very different to the one who were Champions less than 18 months ago.

While finding out if this news was true I found one of the worst football scarves I have ever seen.

Depends on the golden handshake Allardyce took with Parish. Allardyce's leaving was only reluctantly agreed by accounts and SP's track record of following through on agreements are legendary. Allardyce on GOS said that though he misses the day to day involvement he is enjoying the quieter aspect of punditry for now.

The Leicester owners seem to me that they think bigger than surviving in this league. Silva might be a target. Watford though will resist strongly.

The problem they faced after that unexpected and freakish achievement was trying into getting anywhere near that again, it was always going to be a question of after the Lord Mayor's show.
Now that expectations will be high for any new manager Now and in the Future to repeat that impossible achievement will be a millstone to carry, just seeing who takes that challenge up will be interesting. I just don't see Leicester ever being any higher than 8th which should be acceptable for a club like themselves, but will it be for the Owners? who after having tasted Champions league football may set their targets higher than mid table.

A year's mourning for the loss of the longest serving monarch. The Thai's revered the King. The unexplained death of his brother is never mentioned, but by and large he has held the country together and done his relative best for his people.

His son however is a playboy whose depravity to date is quite something. Now in power he seems like he is going to be ruthless in his grip on it within the top circle of business and military.

The media control on the Thai nation when it comes to the monarchy is total so the general populous however simply admire and revere from afar. You get 15 years for insulting the monarchy. PK would love it

I can't say I'm surprised Shakespeare failed at Leicester City. It's a very different job coming in as caretaker and galvanising a squad who know you, to doing the full range of a manager's responsibilities. Look at Steve Kember with us.

However, I'm surprised they've sacked him without having someone lined up. (Again, look at us with Pardew waiting to take over from Warnock and Roy from FdB.)

Anyway, thoughts on Dyche? I wasn’t fully convinced when he was linked to us earlier this year but think he’d be solid...if unspectacular.

Spindle
18-10-2017, 07:28 PM
I don't think he's getting flak aside a misunderstanding that we thought he was agreeing with the rest of his support that they expect a Champions League spot regularly, and that their fans are happy clapper types. He distances himself from both of these notions.

I have always felt that although Vardy can finish and is rapid, he's also perhaps the biggest cheating diver in the game. And during the title season there was a huge amount of bias toward them, especially toward the end of the season. I'm just saying as I see it, there's no grudge against their support for it.

Can't argue with that and Leicester did deserve to win the league. It was good to see a club like Leicester win it. But I don't think I can remember so much good fortune aligning for a team for a whole season. A hell of a lot of good fortune fell their way that season. They never seemed to have a run of difficult games. Their first 10 fixtures were very favourable and on the odd occasion they played one of the big sides it was early in the season and still a bit rusty. Leicester were able to build up great momentum. Vardy falling over and getting penalties. Far play to him but even when it started to get highlighted the refferees still fell for it. I can't remember a team that had so few injuries throughout the season either.

Bitter.....of course I am. Not because Leicester didn't deserve it but because the amount of fortune they had that season and we couldn't even get the rub of the green for 120 effing minutes in a cup final to win our first major trophy and European football:sob:

Can't argue with that and Leicester did deserve to win the league. It was good to see a club like Leicester win it.

Everybody plays the same, they had unknown Kante and a functioning system and some quality goals scored and they worked their butts off. There's no question it was a great performance, however they had Vardy getting so many dodgy penno's given and nothing the other way - remember the Fuchs blatant handball v us? And the definite penno not given when Wilf has slain in the box? As they drew closer I recall the press momentum "Wouldn't it be wonderful if?" and the referees played a part. Vardy went ape at Moss for that awful dive v West Ham because he'd been given that stuff all season - that sending off was an exception.

I'm glad they won it in many ways, but there is more than a stench of smug out of it all which makes me just wish they blew it tbh.

The thing I noticed that season was how Leicester mastered the whole 'holding' in the penalty area. It was technically not legal but all referees allowed it and their centre backs were absolute masters at it.
It was telling how, at the end of the season, the refs were directed to view holding completely differently. I am not complaining, just commenting. They saw a weakness in the way laws were interpretted and took advantage.
One cannot also deny how fit their squad was. A mate of mine who is a Leics fan reckoned they were all using ice baths and special diets in an incredibly scientific way - which may explain how they stayed so injury free.
Personally I always thought they were proper fans but their success made many horribly arrogant - although Leicester1 seems a very honourable exception.

Fair point, well made.

There is no doubt Leicester1 is one of the top away fans on here. He is positive about his own team but respectful of ours and ignores the provocative idiots with grace, would be a better place with more away fans like him.

Big Sam's ruled himself out.

Staying true to his word so far.

I think an international job is his desire.

I saw him coming out of a hotel on St Martins Lane last Friday. He sort of looked a bit like a person in a daze who wasn't sure what to do with himself. And slightly shuffling. Of course, I could be reading too much into it, but he looked a bit like he had the weight of the world on his shouldets.

Yep. What hurts the most about that final is that it was ours if we wanted it :sob: Did Clattenberg ref the game well? Not really but we still should have won.

That really was the game where Pardew's mask started to slip.

If I can just continue the Leicester1 love in for a moment...what makes him such a great poster is he never “bites” when unnecessarily provoked and criticised.

Able to either see it as good natured or ignore the more barbed comments!

Hurray to Leicester1.

Now eff off back to your own boards you happy clapping, bandwagon riding, pompous prig.

Have been very up and down and better players may want to get out. Very important for you to get a manager who will attract players. Pardew not really in that category, nor is Dyche.

Puel's a good solid choice. Decent defensively, apparently got Nice playing exciting football on the counter when he had the players (which he didn't at Saints), won't make a fuss, sort of speaks English. Will probably guide Leicester to 10th-12th, maybe with a cup run.

It might click with Pardew eventually that everyone in football knows he is a spent force, and his downfall is down entirely to him.

I think he is so arrogant that it might take him five years in the punditry chair to come to this conclusion.

The longer he isnt appointed the more I enjoy it. Vindictive me, too right. The twat should have concentrated on training and fitness. What he was paid handsomely to take care of.
