Woe to that land that’s govern’d by a child!
I am sorry but why even bother putting Slimani on - he is an absolute waste of space at the moment and doesn't deserve to wear the shirt .
Crap match. Vardy missed a sitter, Huddersfield edged it. They look good so in that respect a point away from home is not too bad a result but we were pretty poor.
His shot near the end was woeful
A good point considering our performance. We did start to show more quality in the second half and this was helped with Mahrez having more freedom. Ndidi is an excellent destroyer but he must improve his passion. Chilwell has lots of promise but has an error in him. Finally, despite King putting in a decent shift, we cannot rely on him and Ndidi in the centre of midfield. They just aren't good enough.
We have the weakest midfield in the Premier League, everyone we play will dominate against us as long as that remains the case. I have high hopes for Ibora (and eventually Silva) but even so we need to go to a central midfield 3, it's been the same story since Kanté left.
I am not King's biggest fan but he was far better than Ndidi today. He broke up play more effectively, held up the ball better and looked to get forward more often. Criticism of him today isn't really that justifiable. Albrighton, Ndidi and Simpson were pretty poor throughout and as for that remarkably laughable cameo from Slimani, well, that sums up his time with us so far. And to think, some people were banging on last year about Slimani being our 'best striker'....
Have you seen Brighton and Palace?
Complete shit No creativity, no cutting edge.
Utter shite from us. No plan, no purpose, no quality. Huddersfield had nothing but were still easily the better side. We had more than enough on that pitch to win comfortably so what's the excuse this week Craig? I was just bored to tears watching another waste of a game. We've regressed so much that I suppose any point must be considered positive in our pursuit of 40 before the end of the season. Vardy is carrying this team and even he isn't playing well. I feel like we're in some kind of coma waiting for the owners to accept the inevitable and change the manager. Tick tock.
Not sure why Gray preferred to dive rather than shoot. Shinji should have come on at HT. Slimani shouldn't have come on at all (perhaps he agreed as he walked straight off rather than clap the fans).
Hopefully that will put an end to people saying we'll be fine once the run of games against the big sides is over. We were SHITE today & lucky to get a point ONE shot on target & outpassed by fucking Huddersfield? This is bullshit. We have no cover whatsoever at right back,hardly any in midfield & it's 3 & a half months til we can strengthen. By then we'll probably be in such deep shit nobody of any quality will want to come. Everything is a disaster movie just waiting for the big scene. Jesus Christ I didn't think even we were capable of this level of fucking incompetence. Everything built over the last 5 years or so has been flushed away in less than a year & a half. Still never mind, the players really,really like the boss. He's their bestest mate in the whole wide world innit?
Yes we have problems but people are overreacting. Huddersfield are a decent outfit and very few teams will go there and get an easy game. The central midfield needs attention. In FIFA and Iborra we trust.
Some, so called, "fans", give me the impression they want City and Shakey to fail, just so they can say" 'l told you so" A point away from home. Could've be been better, could've been a lot worse, but it wasn't.
There's a decent manager in Allardyce currently available under whom we know we'll at least be well organised. Might not be the most popular choice but I think sensible choice. We are on a hiding to nowhere under Shakespeare and gone are the days now where we might be able to tempt a top manager like Mancini in. The midfield for me is key at the minute. We are so weak there, Ndidi is okay, he can make tackles well and intercepts but he loses the ball far too often when he actually has posession and often that results in the defence being put under unnecessary pressure.. King is always virtually absent. A real shame we can't get to see Adrien Silva and Iborra play together as I think their experience and quality would be invaluable at the minute. Pleased to see Iheanacho get a start today, he looked a threat on the few occasions that we managed to get the ball forward far enough.
That is the first time they have conceded at home. They have had some eye catching performances so far this season and have a few very talented players indeed. Lots and lots of teams will fail to get anything from the Kirklees this year. This absolute diarrhoea about them being 'shit' or 'only Huddersfield' is pathetic. We were 'only Leicester' for the first 3 months of our championship winning season. Jesus, what a melt down some people seem to be having. It's quite entertaining really. Well, more so than the first half of the game today that's for sure.
stubborn tactically, baffling subs, refusal to drop certain people no matter the circumstances - welcome back to Nigel Pearson's Leicester City
Who should have been dropped?
Lets be clear here. None of us "negative" types are remotely interested in being able to say "I told you so" At least I'm not. I imagine BN isn't either. What we are is angry at the ineptitude that's been shown since the dust settled on probably the greatest achievement in modern football. What other club could go from champions of England to taking a hopeful punt on an untried manager in less time then it takes for a cheese sarny to go off? What other club could reward the man who masterminded the transfer policy that saw us sign vital players for a pittance with "well thanks but cheerio" ? We love our club. Passionately. In my case for well over 40 years, most of it suffering dismal underachievement. We all had the season of our lives...& now we get to watch it all vanish to such an extent that in 3 years it won't even seem like it happened at all? Bollocks! We could...& SHOULD have taken the vast rewards of the title win & CL season & turned ourselves into the regularly-challenging-for-Europe team we really should always have been. Instead we end up back amongst the no-marks. Reverting to type. It's got **** all to do with being negative & **** all to do with wanting to say "see...told you" It's not negative to piont out failings. It's negative to ignore them ,cross your fingers & hope things work out. CS will fail. Not because I say so. Because he's 53 years old & never been a manager. Never shown any desire to be one. Doesn't have a clue what to do. He has no tactical skill beyond his first choice arrangements, can't change a game effectively from the bench, can't be adventurous when needed. Plus the players know they can get away with any old shit while he's in charge. Basically he's a supply teacher. But he got offered the full time post, presumably for a very nice pay increase & he took it. Fair enough...so would I! He'll leave here & get a coaching job at somewhere like Ipswich or Hull. I just hope it's sooner rather than later so we might have a chance of repairing the damage. Although I'm not hopeful of that either as the list of replacements will likely be fucking terrible. Which is another symptom of the ludicruous way the club has handled things.
