    Apparently Leicester City have signed Lenny Henry up as their new manager.

    It's the only chance they have of staying in The Premier.

    Allegedly approached a Dutch manager who seems reluctant to accept as he feels he's on a Hiddink to nothing.

    Leicester have gone from a club who a lot of people (not me) supported in the run in last year to a club everyone (outside Leicester) want to see relegated.

    He's one in a million. A true gentleman.

    He'll have a statue outside the stadium one day.

    Couldn't agree more. Those players - Vardy, Huth, Morgan and Mahrez - are now performing exactly how you would expect them to judging by their respective careers to date, with the exception of one miraculous season. Saying Ranieri has mismanaged a squad of very good players is complete ****ing bollocks.

    Vardy isn't getting the service (he's got the same chance conversion rate as last season) but Morgan and Huth have been shown up without Kante. They're pushing retirement.

    However Mahrez is an absolute world beater and has been since he joined us. Put him in a possession based attacking side and he'll work wonders.


    Ranieri has definitely mismanaged them. You wouldn't know because you clearly don't watch us play.

    I know how all those players I named have performed throughout their entire careers. What would you suggest is more likely - they've suddenly become 'absolute world beaters' or they're back to performing exactly how they have previously? The only one you can accuse Ranieri of mis-managing is Ulloa, and I didn't mention him.

    And I'm saying this after, as I you might remember me saying, he has done this throughout his entire career - he does absolutely brilliantly when taking over a team and then it goes tits up a year later

    I didn't suggest that Vardy, Morgan or Huth ever have been world beaters.

    Mahrez certainly is though.

    'world beater in a possession based attacking side' - is that like the possession based attacking side he was in last year when scooping the major individual awards?

    What are you saying? <laugh>

    Put him in a team that will continually find him in space with the ball and he'll rinse sides in this league. Liverpool and Arsenal would kill for him.

    I'm saying that in by far and away the best season of his career he was in about as far from a 'possession based attacking side' as it's possible to get.

    I thought that was really, really obvious.

    Possession based? Perhaps not, although we were always in control (so to speak). Let the opposition come to us then hit them when there is space.

    Attacking? Clearly we were. We were the second top scorers ffs <laugh>

    Bit off topic, but I'd like to know how the possession stats are calculated.

    You didn't split the 2 elements possession and attacking - you said 'possession based attacking side' and you clearly were not this. FACT a ****ing Mundo. You averaged possession lower than nearly every ****ing team in the entire division.

    Put a laughing emoji on the end as much as you want at that but the FACTs prove it.
