    Weird innit. 
    Is Waghorn our best striker? No.
    So who should we play up front? Waghorn.
    Riiiiight

    RoyMac5 reacted to Srg in The Change in Fortune. Who's to thank?   
    Agreed with nearly all of that, apart from if you straight swap Martin for Waghorn in Saturday's team it becomes even slower than it was. Martin, Rooney, Huddlestone, complete with no one other than Bogle, Holmes and Lowe with any noticeable pace at all. At least removing Davies you're slightly more athletic with Wisdom.

    Yet Cocu chooses Waghorn over Martin. 
    Or, if you like he chooses Whittaker over Sibley.

    Me, too.
    I agree with that as well. Huddlestone really does seem to be Cocu’s type of player.
    Yes, I was very surprised we released Elsnik as I rated Elsnik highly. Saw a recent interview where Elsnik had offers from League One and League two teams, but he thought he could do better. Fair play to him, he’s now signed for a club back home.

    The team that won away at Palace put in one of the best performances of the season and most of those players should be used again for this game. otherwise, what's the point? But if we're hoping Wisdom can be the answer at centre half, we need to further cement that partnership,
    Roos
    Bogle     Wisdom     Clarke     Malone
    Bird     Huddlestone
    Whittaker     Rooney    Sibley
    Martin
    Subs: Ravas  Davies  Lowe  Holmes  Shinnie  Lawrence  Waghorn
    Obviously assuming Shinnie is close enough to make the bench and Marriott won't be fit enough or risked. Knight is given a break as he deserves one. Fozzy misses out too.

    Which we have proved to be very good at 
    only Ince and Vydra have shown any kind of profit and at least both of them actually contributing to various seasons

    We can't compete with any of the parachute payment clubs. If they want a player we want they will win that particular race every single time.
    However of the 12 teams promoted in the last 4 seasons and the 5 that were non parachute payment teams -  Shef Utd, Wolves, Brighton, Huddersfield, Boro none of them breached FFP. Brentford are doing well without spending big as well. There is no reason why you have to overspend to get promoted from this league.

    Apologies if this has been mentioned.
    But after watching yesterday I'm more of the opinion that a winger (ideally with pace) is much more of a priority than a centre half.
    I've been saying for weeks that Wisdom should be playing centre half. Nice to see him play there. You only have to look at his brothers twitter to realise that Wisdom considers his best position to be centre half. Not sure how good Benkovic is (incidentally not in Leicester's squad today) but will he be that much better than Wisdom that it's a must?
    If we're signing 2 players then for me they would both be in the attacking part of the field. Cos we're lacking there massively.

    I actually didn’t think initially that Paul Clements style was as bad as was made out in fairness😂. But yeah, you don’t wanna go too far that way, possession has to be possession with a purpose. It’s the quality of movement for me that’s the difference between a side passing around and going nowhere, and a side like City. Pick up those pockets of space, and most importantly pass quickly, and no- one will be able to cope with that sort of possession play.

    I think the “we shouldn't have put ourselves in this situation“ was directed towards our over inflated wages over the past 5 years

    Yes, I think some circumstances have made Cocu’s job challenging - the FFP charges and the drink driving scandal, without a doubt.
    But every other problem he has faced - like managing an injury hit squad - are problems that are par for the course in football management.
    We have been unfortunate with injuries but I don’t think Cocu would want to hide behind that. He himself would probably admit he has struggled to adapt to the English game.
    The question for me has always been whether this group of players are playing to their potential and whether Cocu was getting the most out of them.
    Up until recently, the answer would have been no. And to be honest, it’s still no for me. But recent weeks have certainly been a step in the right direction.

    5 minutes are up. We've made no subs. All additional time is free. Comfortable win, minus a good Hull spell for 15 minutes in the first half. 
    FT 1-0.
    We didn't need any subs. 🎵
     
    Holmes MOTM for me. Knight, Lowe both good. Waghorn, Lawrence improved (minus most of Lawrence's crossing). Bogle also magically became himself again early in the second half. Wisdom looked good. 
    Great header by Clarke of course.

    He's always very good at slowing it down. When we're winning its a positive trait. When we're not it's a flaw 😛

    And with that run, Bogle's confidence has spiked and he's found his dancing shoes. Goes past two players and gets a cross in from the byline, well cleared by Hull.

    Rooney put in behind, pulls it back to Waghorn but his shot is deflected back off him out for a goal kick. Spoiler: It wasn't on target.
