Problem is vardy needs to get his head out of his backside and not live off last season
Most of the players have proved they are average at best and defended worse than us at times
It just shows what a miracle last season was,I also hope they go down
Surely they won't get Harry redknapp to take over,will they

Agree with the Vardy and average at best bit.

Wanting them to go down, not so much. It would be good to see them have another good season and shown some of the established big clubs what hard work and team spirit can achieve.

Harry is already on his way up there in his range rover, window open and ready to bring in all his favourites. Probably already on the phone to Defoe as we speak.

I think the general reaction is to hope they go down now.

If they do go down it probably helps Ranieri's legacy to not be in charge.

It also makes me like football that little bit less...how can you sack a manager 9 months after what will be the best moment in your history. Leicester are currently where anybody would expect Leicester to be, they were in the Championship 3 years ago. A bizarre world we live in.

I guess the questions is, do you stick with the man that won you the title and risk go down losing £millions in the process or do gamble on a new manager hoping he has enough time to turn it around ?

Not a decision I would like to make but then this is a pretty unique situation and as you say bizarre.

You know the "race to the bottom" we've all been hearing so much about over the last few years...someone just won that race!

He is a victim of his own success.

I think he earned the right to see the season through and at least finish the Champions League run he brought them.

Even if they go down, they won the bloody league! That can't be taken away.

If somebody offered me promotion then the Premier League title for QPR now followed by relegation the season after I'd take it EVERY day!!! Who wouldn't?

The owners have forgotten the context. They have forgotten that they are LEICESTER, not Real Madrid. That is why them winning the league was such a story in the first place because they are meant to struggle.

Hope they slide to League 2.

Easy how we forget things too.

When we were in the premiership, that combination was also the problem! And we sacked him too!

I was the biggest critic along with MINXY then as well.
And look what happened we stayed up because of Bolton.
And went down after.
LEICESTER owners and players need a reality check.

It seems harsh after last year but at the same time i completely understand why they made the decision.

In any job ever, if you completely smash all of your targets in your first year and do an amazing job but then the next year when you have been given new targets you are performing worse then the minimum expectations of the first year your not gona keep your job.


I dont really agree with all these people saying because of last year he should have more time etc. More time wont change anything if - as the papers say - he has lost the dressing room, they will only slide further down.

Thanks for showing us that this game isnt all about the money you have to pay but the effort and belief you can put in. Its a shame that it turns out players can loose belief in you pretty quickly even after achieving the [i]impossible[/i]
