  1. Allan Clarke was signed from Fulham who'd just been relegated from L1 / top tier for a British record fee but sold him to Leeds a year later for a new record fee.
  2. He's been caught http://www.leicestermercury.co.uk/venetian-blinds/story-30071771-detail/story.html
  3. Amarty looked reasonably comfortable against what was a poor attack. It was noticeable that early on they played the ball out from the back and Amarty put some pretty decent balls at ground level to their RW/LB and CM fielders. Uganda were fairly impotent until the last 20 minutes and under pressure their was a lot more hoofing from the Ghana back line. I wouldn't judge his potential as CO from that game though.
  4. Are we allowed Irish joke? Paddy says to Mick,"I found this pen, is it yours?" Mick replies,"don't know, give it here." He then tries it and says, "yes it is." Paddy asks, "how do you know?" Mick replies,"that's my handwriting."
  5. One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut. After the cut, he asked about his bill, and the barber replied, 'I cannot accept money from you, I'm doing community service this week.' The florist was pleased and left the shop. When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a 'thank you' card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door. Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from you, I'm doing community service this week.' The cop was happy and left the shop. The next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a 'thank you' card and a dozen doughnuts waiting for him at his door. Then a Member of Parliament came in for a haircut, and when he went to pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from you. I'm doing community service this week.' The Member of Parliament was very happy and left the shop. The next morning, when the barber went to open up, there were a dozen Members of Parliament lined up waiting for a free haircut.

  7. New rules are coming into place limiting the use of backless booster seats for older children. The law currently states that all children travelling in a car must use the correct car seat until they are either 135cm tall or 12-years-old. In some European countries, including Germany and France, the height limit is 150cm. Under the new rules, backless booster seats will only be approved for children taller than 125cm who weigh more than 3st 6.5lbs (22kg). Children around three-years-old or who weigh as little as 2st 4lbs (15kg) currently can travel in backless booster seats. However, child seat experts have said that this type of booster seat is unsuitable for young children.

He said: "I've not sold booster seats for ten years. "All decent manufacturers don't use booster seats. All a booster seat does is put the lap belt in the correct place, it offers no protection. It's pretty much the same as putting a cushion in the car. "We stopped selling booster seats prior to the 2006 legislation change. "A lot of children were not in any kind of seat so at the time it was better for them to have a booster seat but it's something we would never advise anyone to buy. "High-backed seats protect the head in a crash; on a booster seat the child's head won't stop until it hits the side of the car. "They're miles safer. The shoulder protection keeps them in the right position." His advice to parents was that children should progress from a 9-18 kg seat with a harness to a high-backed booster seat until they are aged 11 to 12 – or 150cm tall. When does the law change? The law is due to change soon. The new regulations could come into force in March, and it could see only children taller than 125cm who weighing over 22kg being able to travel in a car on a backless booster cushion. This is because a backless car seat offers much less protection in the event of a collision. Children must also be in an appropriate child car set until they are either 135cm in height or 12 years old. After this they must then use an adult seatbelt, according to the new rules.

The law states that children must use a child car seat until they are either 135cm (4ft 5in) tall or 12-years-old. However, child car seat experts recommend you use a child car seat for all children under 150cm (4ft 11in). If a child weighs over 36kg but are under 150cm – it is advised that you go by height. It is the driver's responsibility for children being in car seats while travelling. Can I still use my booster seat? Under the new rules, backless booster seats will only be approved for use for children taller than 125cm and weighing more than 22kg. Booster seats are not recommended by experts including Which? or W H Watts & Son because they don't offer protection in crashes.

  8. A message came up saying it's on eurosport player but you have to pay for that from what I can see?

  10. Modern football don't you just love it.
  11. Teams are playing deeper when we have the ball so there isn't the same space for Vardy to get, control and move with the ball. So many times this season when it's been tried you see Vardy chasing after a ball that goes out of play, or sails over his head because the space isn't there.
  12. I think he's a competent central midfielder with defensive qualities who's capable of moving the ball around and normally decent at retaining and passing.
  13. Proper football has got FA to do with fighting, in fact it's largely the fault of fighting that football has change to how it is today.
  14. There were so many instances today of giving the ball away when there was absolutely no pressure on the players involved, sloppy panicky hot potato get rid of the ball I don't want it play. I don't agree that Drinkwater is a creative player, yes last season he could do a decent long ball pass to Vardy but that option doesn't exist and his creativity is a shade above zero.
  15. We may have mirrored Chelsea formation wise but that was all it was, we do not have the player skill set that they have so I don't see how he expected it to work. We are a hoof ball team and we need a formation and players that fit that or we need better suited players. The match was good for us? Aye plenty of effort but sadly lacking in skill and execution of play, it was simply a shambles. I've watched a lot of tv footy just lately from the PL to league one and that was the worst performance by some distance.
