'Why didn't Kodjia take the penalty?' now trumps 'Why didn't Barry take the penalty?'

Our best player should be able to score a penalty. Papering over the cracks anyway
Quite. I'm trying to cope.

2-0 flatters us, second half their running game has destroyed us.

Three games to save his job I reckon, or give somebody else the chance to get their players in, in January.

I think you are right. The last run of games was always going to be sticky but weve been poor today. Confidence looks very low.

Is anyone else starting to wonder, Did we get promoted before we were ready? After all, we only came fifth in the Championship, and were lucky to get promoted. Perhaps the plan (?) was to win the Championship this season, and get promoted because we deserved to.


I don't agree sorry.  If we hadn't gone up, we'd have had an even bigger rebuilding job to do, as Grealish and McGinn wouldn't be here now.
...and?

I don't understand your 'and?' question.

Are there three worse teams than us in this division? Because right now Im struggling to think that there is.

Only consolation is 19th and 20th are starting to get adrift so really just the one place to avoid.

Im worried about Norwich with pukki scoring again. Watford continue to look better than their results but hopefully Pearson will kill off any chances of the run Ive been worrying about.

19th Norwich are not cut adrift, and are doing a pretty damn good stint at Leicester right now.

He's just very very average. Can't believe we actually spend 15m on him. He's a 5m standard player.

I think it will come down to the Liverpool game in a few days and then the next Premiership game, that's it.

I've been waiting for Leicester to score for an hour.
