    No chance he'll be sacked.

    He can't rest on his previous achievements. People suggesting nothing matters anymore because we won the league last season are infuriating.

    I don't really see what the plan is at the moment, we were abject at Watford and worse today. We lack personality and desire at the moment, apart from in the CL where big bonuses are available to the players. It's concerning and I don't see what Ranieri is doing to change things.

    Not saying we should sack him but he needs to earn his money, drop some of the billy big bollocks players and start playing players who have something to prove. Does he have the balls?

    Our Champions League opposition has been pathetic. Championship standard, at best. It's not relevant.

    I'll put it another way.

    If Claudio is under genuine pressure it's a fucking joke. An absolute indictment of the fans and modern football.

    Group including relatively recent winners and a side who haven't lost at home for about 30 games?

    Ask spurs how relevant it is.

    I'm sure that Rostov and Warsaw are even lower than champ standard but that didn't stop them beating Bayern and Real. I think our CL results deserve some more respect than you are giving them.

    Behave yourself. They were piss poor and you know it

    Regardless, Don Clownio is not under pressure of the sack and nor should he

    He does need to get his feckin finger out, though, 'cos this is shite

    Fair enough. Still think the champions league achievements are relevant.

    They are not relevant to the Premier League and our current position as a side that can't score from anything other than the spot and is currently flirting with the drop zone.

    Our champions league opposition may not be the best but....Watford, Wabs and fucking Teesside? if you can beat one lot you should manage more than a point from the other. Too many just can't be arsed in the league at the moment. we missed an opportunity to cash in over the summer despite how sensible it seemed to retain players at the time.

    Certainly looks that way, doesn't it? Soton know how to play it, at the moment we've dropped ludicrous contracts on players who played out their skins for a season but actually aren't all that great.

    I think they are good - the ones who could've left. sadly though it's nearly December and it's only Drinkwater that we'd have missed in the Prem had we sold them. I don't think Gray/Musa are regular Prem players yet and Ulloa offers less than Vardy should but right now I reckon wed be a few points higher with them in.

    Really struggling to comprehend how poor we were today.

    We need to change our approach and not necessarily our players.

    Today we were outplayed in midfield and had no through ball to the front.

    We need to ditch the 'long' ball as this hasn't worked in the league this season and without Drinkwater and all other teams getting amnesia it ain't going to work until the end of the season.

    We need to play through the middle with quick incisive passing and whenever possible get it out wide.

    We need Okazaki and Slimani up top, and perhaps go to five at the back.

    Zieler, although not as good as Schmeichel, is fine as a back up.

    If Ranieri gets the sack Regardless of the rest of the season then I for one will consider giving up supporting the team I have feverishly supported for 42 fucking years.

    Some people are unbelievable.

    Mahrez and Drinkwater could play at bigger clubs. Vardy, I'm not convinced at all.

    you've turned in to a Ranieri fan, from an LCFC fan?

    Vardy could. he won't though as his chance and either his confidence or interest has gone.

    Not at all Durham, but I feel a tremendous amount of loyalty to a man who has delivered a season and now Champions League campaign that in my wildest dreams was unimaginable.

    If people are seriously considering sacking such an iconic figure in our generally piss poor history then for me football and our club are finished.

    Loyalty is bestowed onto exceptional people who deliver exceptional results and if our fucking stupid fan base can't see that the only manager of our 'provincial' club deserves this loyalty then those 'so called' fans are *****.

    I feel incredibly strongly about this.
