    Going to be impossible to replace Vardy though, phenomenal footballer for a club like Leicester. 1 in 2 against the big 6 ffs.

    Playerw matter but the set up is more important. In that game we even started Lichtsteiner, Mustafi and Mhki. Inferior players than the ones we are currently fielding. Yet the performances are way worse.

    Top 4 is not gone in early November. A hammering from Leicester should see the fraud get the sack. But if he is still here after the international break, I won't even bother watching the team play.

    I'd rather a loss to Leicester if that could get Emery sacked IMMEDIATELY

    Regardless of what we may create/score; their midfield will dominate ours and their forwards will cause all sorts of problems to our backline. Could see us get hammered here..

    Last season we had 18 percent of the ball, before one of our worst players in the team got a red card for nothing. Since then, we still don't dominate and concede even more chances then ever. Leicester are in great form, we are getting battered one the pitch vs midtable English and Portuguese sides.

    We will get spanked. I'm rarely wrong. I just hope the board sees what I've been saying all along. It's not getting better with Emery.

    I used to think that, then I look at liverpool which really isnt all that.

    Pretty much all of Liverpool’s midfield are workhorses who have the legs/stamina to run themselves into the ground every game, which is the way Klopp likes his midfield to Fabinho, Milner and Gini are all decent footballers, think their midfield is a little underrated.

    not sure if this has been mentioned yet, but if we lose to Leicester (as we probably will) and Chelsea beat Palace (likely but not as certain), in terms of points we will be closer to relegation than we will be to fourth place

    Managers aside for a minute. Sometimes players take a while to adjust to the Prem and then get used to playing with each other as a team. Tielemans and Maddison were both new last year. But really seem to have gelled this year with Ndidi. They now look a formidable unit.

    The transfer team have put to together a really good squad for £300m+There are no holes.

    Arsenal on the other hand have blown most of their money on expensive forwards and neglected the midfield and defence at £400+m.
    That mismatch is biting us in the arse, regardless of Emery.

    They signed Torreira and Guendouzi who are both very good players and would probably form a good partnership if given the chance. Xhaka and Ceballos are also decent replacements. How are they supposed to legislate for the manager being an incompetent ****? There’s not another manager in world football who’d play Torreira as a 8/10. You have a point on the defence but they’ve still invested a decent amount in that area. Leno, Sokratis, Saliba and Tierney is £100m+.

    Our squad is fine and should have a lot more points than they currently have. It’s a squad that should easily be able to achieve 70-80 points with a good manager. It’s the incompetent **** in charge who’s not getting the best out of it.

    Leicester’s midfield reminds me of ours from 09-11, when we had Fabregas/Diaby/Song/ much talent, loved that midfield.

    Diaby was a great player, shame his body didn't allow him to achieve his potential.

    Not sure about you but I thought Maddison looked pretty good last season as well.

    Exciting to think after the international break we will have a new manager!

    Our two squads aren't that dissimilar money wise, compared to City at £1bn+. But the Leicester squad is balanced.

    Guendouzi and Willock show a lot of great potential but are young and still learning, Torreira isn't that good and Xhaka is rash. Cellabos isn't used to the prem yet and seems all over the place. They don't seem to gel in any formation, which is probably why Emery keeps experimenting.

    And don't start on Luiz and Sokratis. Regardless of Emery, our squad is very unbalanced. Our forwards are excellent but they're not getting the chance to shine because the midfield are getting over run regularly, and the defence are making mistakes.

    Even if we get a new manager, this needs fixing. Next year with Saliba coming in we need to spend the sort of money we spent on Laca/PEA/Pepe on a CB and Midfielder.
