    Have just read that Ranieri has donated £1.5m of his £3m settlement to the Foxes Foundation.

    If true that is a remarkable gesture from a remarkable man

    Which would be amazing if there was any evidence it actually has happened and someone didn't just write it on Facebook. Fake news people, fake news.

    Not sure if this has been posted yet but an interesting read that for me, just cements the opinion of that the owners have made the right call. Ranieri has arguably had great success off the back of someone else's great background work and slowly started dismantling it. I always thought Pearson's main weakness was his lack of tactical nouse, which Ranieri has. Arguably last season we basically hit the perfect marriage of Pearson's meticulous preparation and foundation building with Ranieri's tactical knowledge.

    Ken Way is definitely getting his fair share of profile out of this.

    That wouldn't really make the situation any better though would it? Lacked the motivation? Starting a season as defending champions? Playing in front of passionate supporters? All those awards in the close season?

    If that didn't motivate the poor dears then nothing would.

    Yeah, when we scored Ranieri almost knocked his glasses off, this is after that IMO.

    Actually, looking at the video, it's a bit of an obvious fake, the time is given as 89 minutes, Vardy scored in the 72nd minute. Fake news! I wonder if The Donald was behind it.

    That's the same logic that sacked Ken Way.

    Everyone doesn't have the ability to self-motivate, everybody doesn't share the same mindset - hence the job of a manager is to cater to these different needs. Ranieri didn't accept this, being stuck in a bygone age, and failed.

    The "Snap out of it and pull yourself together" course at the school of Hard Knocks ought to be closed down by Ofsted.

    I find it impossible to believe that 15 premier league players don't have the ability to self-motivate. I find it hard enough to believe that there is 1 player in the whole of the prem who hasn't self-motivated during his career. You don't get to the top of a sport or any other sector of life without that ability.

    Getting there and staying there are two very different skills.

    Funny, as that's what Ranieri thought too. He seems to have lost a number of jobs because of it!

    Yep - when it's all going swimmingly well, there is less need for psychologists but when you're stuck in a rut and the doubt starts to creep in, tough - you've sacked the poor bugger!

    More or less the main thrust of Sky's Sunday Supplement programme discussion on Claudio's sacking, where James Ducker (Telegraph) lamented how suddenly the will to win and keep winning (Roy Keane the role model here) had disappeared from the English game. Miraculous that our shower managed it for 15 months, really.

    There's confidence as well as motivation. One can want to do well but just feel uncertain as to how.

    Some ex-player remarked on one of those football talking heads programs that when you're confident you don't really think about it, you just do it. Maybe a couple of early season defeats sowed the seeds of doubt, then a change in tactics further eroded certainty. Suddenly players went from not thinking about how they played to over-thinking it. As Okazaki remarked, they no longer knew what they were supposed to be doing.

    Let's overcomplicate football. We've all played.

    if you think yack's post was overcomplicated, then I struggle to see how you became a proghead.

    I don't think really get this shit with the players.

    If Vardy wasn't doing his job, we'd be cheering for any of the players rounding on him and telling him so.

    Do we really believe that the players didn't tell Claudio they didn't agree with his substitutions?

    Leo did.
