    I think any intent to foul should be a booking, further attempts to foul should be a second booking. I have no problem with players taking one for the team provided they're properly dealt with.

    Is there nothing else going on in your lives? People who watch Leicester because they’re a fan... are fans... Some people can’t stand... some people can’t sing... some people can’t always go... But when they go to watch and have paid to watch, what they choose to do is up to them as long as it isn’t inciting any sort of social hatred. And by the way, if people take their kids and choose to not sing about the size of Soyunchu’s private parts, I think that’s a fairly understandable decision! Or are they not real fans? And if their kids like the clappers, then go for it! Oh no, hang on, clappers are well embarrassing for us true fans... Bore off No one should be told how to support their team and no one should be made to feel less of a fan because of it.

    Hello guys, first i want to say „Sorry“ for my faulty english. I come from Germany. I have been following your path with great interest for some time. Although I'm not a fan of Hoffenheim, Bremen or Gladbach (Vestergaards Teams in the Bundesliga), but a Fan of Eintracht Frankfurt, Vestergaard was one of my favourite players, when he was in the Bundesliga. He was extremly good in tackles and header. Don't look just at his time in the Premier League. His Bundesliga time was only 1 1/2 years ago. He will not have forgotten all of his strength during this time. Maybe it just didn't work at Southhampton. There was a reason why he cost Southampton 25 Million Euros, what is a lot of more money for a Bundesliga Team as for a Premier League team. I think if he finds his way back to old strength, he will be able to help you a lot. I wish you good luck for the rest of the season!

    Basically, the manager overthinks things when it comes to the big games and just can't help himself when it comes to tweaking a system that actually works pretty well most of the time.

    Whatever anyone says our fans are shit. Lack passion and the majority either have zero understanding on what effect vocal backing of a 4000 strong crowd in a game like that can have or know the effect but would rather leave it to someone else. Not having this ‘I pay my money so will turn up and support how I like’. Because what good is that to the players? There could be 10,000 there but if they’re silent it isn’t going to positively affect the players and surely that’s what we are there for? Support the players and help them over the line?

    I hate it, has got worse since Pep arrived at Man City, they are terrible for it and it's something that should be clamped down on imo. I'm not in favour of sin bins in general but something like that would stamp it out.

    My pet hate, even above VAR. First noticed it in the Afcon years ago, as soon as an attack broke down, team would commit a foul to stop play and get everyone back. Should be a yellow card every time, no excuses. And do it again, second yellow and a red. Hate it, even when we do it, needs stamping out - like they threatened to do with diving. Rant over, back to the hoovering........

    We've updated our systems since then: - Sanders has perfected the art of holding paper and buckling seat belt in one sweeping motion. - fax machine is to remain on at all times and not unplugged by the cleaner at night times for the vacuum - everyone is trained on dialing a 9 for an external line.

    Generally, we're just too passive. That comes with positives and negatives. You won't get arseholes throwing smoke bombs at club executives, but you won't get the desired atmosphere that puts other teams on edge. Maybe that's as a result of winning the PL, but you will never see the King Power make the noise or bring the passion that Villa fans brought. People can take the piss out of their pitch invasion but it was a spontaneous outpouring of joy that their team had reached a cup final. If that was us, we'd be clapping along to Uptown Funk 5 seconds after the whistle.

    Dave the Scouser is touring the USA. Along the way, he stops off at a remote bar in the Nevada desert and chats to the bartender when he spots a Red Indian in full tribal dress seated in the corner of the bar. "Blimey!" remarks Dave. "Who's he?" "Gee, that's the memory man," replies the bartender. "He knows everything there is to know. Got a memory like an elephant, he can remember any fact. Heck, go and try him out!" Dave heads over to the Red Indian, thinking that he can outsmart him with a question about English football. He asks the memory man, "Who won the 1965 FA cup final?" "Liverpool," came the instantaneous reply. Dave was stunned. He tried again asking, "Who did they beat?" "Leeds," replied the memory man. Dave tried once more asking, "What was the final score?" The wise Red Indian didn't hesitate in answering, "2-1." Dave thinks he'll get smart, asking the memory man for the name of the winning goal scorer. Without so much as blinking, the Red Indian says, "Ian St John." Dave is stunned and returns home to Liverpool, where he tells everyone about the Red Indian. Dave's curiosity lingers, and he vows to return to America and pay his respects to the Indian. Ten years later, Dave finally saved up enough money to return and, after weeks of searching the Nevada desert, once more he finds the Red Indian, now in a cave. Humbled by the Red Indian, Dave steps forward, bows, and greets the brave in his traditional tongue. "How," Dave says. The memory man squints at him and replies, "A diving header in the six-yard box."

    The updates would all be about him, the sandwiches he’s eating and how he likes to “hilariously” call Owynn PH, “Patrick”. He’d probably also claim that his presence got the signing over the line...

    I don't think you seem particularly hateful of gay people but I do think it's worth pointing at that it's not a "lifestyle" as you've called it twice now, it's a genetic fact which they have no control over. People who are born gay don't follow a code of conduct, it's no different to the way that any 2 different straight people will probably live completely different lives. Choosing to go to Church every Sunday is a lifestyle choice, being sexually attracted to members of the same sex isn't. You wouldn't call being black a lifestyle (I hope) because that would be mental, doing it for gay people is just as ridiculous.

    Rodgers now has a contract until 2025 so Top definitely thinks he's the man to take the club to the next level. Regarding @Lesta2014's question, which is a good one, I think the end game is to be a team like Valencia, Dortmund or Napoli in their respective leagues. These teams are very competitive and win trophies, but don't have quite the clout that clubs like Barcelona, Bayern or Juventus do in the same leagues. For as long as club's like Man U are willing to break the bank on huge signings we can't compete directly in that way, but through being run in a smart manner we can still be competitive, as we have shown this season. Personally I'd be more than happy to see us have seasons similar to this one regularly where we play great stuff and are very competitive. If we had this team in 15/16 we'd have a chance of the title again, but sadly this season we have come across a Liverpool team who will most liekly rack up a record points score for the league. Villa we should have beaten of course, but we were the better team over the two legs even if the final score didn't go our way. I also prefer teams that are built up rather than those that are thrown together with money. Pep turned Man City into an amazing team but I have more respect for Klopp - he made Jordan Henderson look good!

    I prefer the Gary Coatsworth approach for City against Derby in the play off final myself. They are lining up in the tunnel at Wembley, and Derbys Tommy Johnson turns to Citys Gary Coatsworth and says "we`re about to run out at Wembley, isnt it fantastic mate"? Coatsworth says nothing, then bends down and puts his nose right into Johnsons face, and shouts "Fvck off"!!

    Already had enough of this "not turned up for the big games" echo chamber rubbish already. One person says it then masses start repeating it without engaging their brain. We took batterings against Man City and Liverpool around christmas, fair play. Rodgers sent us out with our hands tied behind our back against United and we lost that. We've played Arsenal off the park, lost to a dodgy penalty at Liverpool's gaff, probably unlucky to come away with a draw at the bridge, beat Spurs. Absolutely played Villa off the park over 2 legs and they've got themselves a smash and grab win. Am I missing any other games that this young squad that's sat 3rd in the league has bottled and not turned up for? Some of you need to look up the word perspective and have a good long look at yourselves in the mirror. You must be absolutely soul draining people to be around.

    https://www.lcfc.com/news/1592530/former-player-remembers-tony-cottee Earlier this season, Club Historian John Hutchinson met up with former England striker Tony Cottee to discuss his career, which saw him score 294 goals in 714 league and cup appearances. He played a combined total of over 350 games for Everton and Leicester City, aggregating a total of 133 goals for the two clubs. In 1988, Tony moved from West Ham United to Everton for a British record transfer fee. After further spells at Upton Park and in Malaysia, Tony then spent three years at Leicester, winning the League Cup with the Foxes in 2000, his first trophy in a lengthy top-level career. Tony began by explaining why he left his hometown club West Ham for Everton. “I had a great time playing for West Ham,” he said. “In 1986, we finished third in the old Division One. I got the PFA Young Player of the Year award and was selected for the England squad. At this point, I naturally thought that West Ham were going to kick on, start to win cups, and maybe even win the league. “However, for the next two seasons, West Ham struggled a bit. I was in the England squad, where the players were talking about playing in FA Cup finals, or winning the league, or winning the League Cup. “That was really why I went to Everton. I wanted to kick on with my career. It was a very painful decision to leave my hometown club, but for the benefit of my career, I had to make a professional decision. So, in the summer of 1988 I put in a transfer request. Arsenal, and Everton came in for me. I think most people felt as a London boy I would sign for Arsenal but I chose Everton, and the fee broke the British transfer record. “Everton’s club secretary told me the fee was £2.05M. West Ham had said I could leave if Everton matched the record fee that had recently taken Paul Gascoigne to Spurs. Everton paid £50,000 more than this. I didn’t particularly enjoy being a transfer record player as it put a lot of stress and pressure on me. “On my Everton debut, I scored with my first touch after 34 seconds and went on to score a hat-trick in a 4-0 win! I say in jest that my Everton career peaked in my first game! I played over 200 games for Everton, but it was always going to be difficult to follow on from such a fantastic debut. It was a wonderful day but scoring a hat-trick on my debut as a British transfer record signing put immense pressure on me, as fans expected me to get a hat-trick every week! “In my first season at Everton, I scored a couple of goals at Wembley in the Full Members Cup Final, which was nice, but we lost 4-3 to Nottingham Forest. “Then we got to the FA Cup Final against Liverpool. It was after the Hillsborough disaster, which made it a difficult and emotional experience. It was also a memorable one, because I played in my one and only FA Cup Final, which was really special in those days. We lost in extra-time but it was a great game. It was a celebration of everything that was great about Merseyside. “I had a wonderful time at Everton. It was a great experience for me to be at such a big club. I had six-and-a-bit wonderful seasons there. I was their top scorer for five seasons. I scored 99 goals for the club. It’s frustrating that I didn’t get 100! I'm very proud of my time there. “I can sum up my Everton career,” Tony joked. “Everton won the League in 1987. I joined in 1988. In my six years there, they didn't win anything. I left in 1994, and they won the FA Cup in 1995. It was the right club but just at the wrong time!” In 1994, Tony moved back to Upton Park. “I felt that I’d done as much as I could at Everton,” Tony explained. “Never in my wildest dreams did I think I'd go back to West Ham, but Harry Redknapp re-signed me and I was their top scorer in the two years I was back there. I then signed for Selangor in Malaysia.” Reflecting on this move, Tony continued: “At the start of my third season back at West Ham, I got injured and, by the time I'd got back to fitness, I was pretty much sixth-choice striker. I was 31 and I wanted to play football. Then Harry told me he was going to have to sell me as the club needed the money. “The only offer was from Selangor. It was a great experience. As a family, we used Malaysia as a base to go to wonderful places like Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Singapore, Bali, but I didn’t enjoy the football. The league had only been professional for three years, and it was completely different to what I'd been used to. “Then my wife became pregnant and flew back to England, which meant I had about seven weeks out there on my own, probably the longest seven weeks of my life! I couldn’t wait to get back to England but never in my wildest dreams did I think I'd come back to the Premier League.” The opportunity to do just that came when Martin O’Neill signed Tony for Leicester in August 1997. “This move happened because my dad was an insurance broker,” Tony explained. “One of his clients since the early 1980s was Steve Walford, who was O’Neill’s right-hand man. In a chance conversation, Steve asked my dad how I was doing in Malaysia and when he heard that I wanted to come home, he said he would talk to Martin. “Wally then rang me up in Malaysia to tell me that Martin was interested. I thought he was winding me up, but he said a fee of £500,000 had been agreed and that Martin wanted to talk to me. I came back to England and met them at Watford Gap Service Station. Martin wrote down my terms and wages on a paper serviette. I didn’t have an agent but for me it was a no-brainer to sign for Leicester who were in the Premier League and were playing in Europe, having qualified for the UEFA Cup as League Cup holders. Because of the Heysel ban, I’d never played in Europe before. “There were four other really good forwards at the club: Emile Heskey, Ian Marshall, Steve Claridge, and Graham Fenton, so I knew I might not be playing a lot of games. As I’d signed only a two-year contract, I didn’t want to give up the family home in Essex so, for three years, I commuted to Leicester. “I knew it would be tough to get into the team,” Tony continued. “I just wasn’t fit. In Malaysia, we trained for a different type of fitness because of the weather and I’d also missed most of Leicester’s pre-season. I was on the subs’ bench to start with. My debut was when I came off the bench for the famous 3-3 draw against Arsenal, when Dennis Bergkamp scored his hat-trick. “My first start was when we were beaten at Grimsby in the League Cup. At the end of the game, Martin worked his way round the dressing room, criticising every single player, and when he got to me he said: 'Tony, how much did I pay for you?' I looked at him and I went: '£500,000 boss'. He said: 'Well that was £500,000 too much!' “A couple of weeks later, he sent me on loan to Trevor Francis’ Birmingham, to get back to match fitness. When I was recalled to Leicester, I still didn't play. Then we had a reserve game at Notts County on the Wednesday before the Manchester United game at Old Trafford. Martin got onto the team bus just before we were about to leave Filbert Street for Nottingham. He told me that he would play me at Old Trafford if I played well at Notts County. We beat Notts 1-0 and I scored the goal. True to his word, he played me on Saturday at Old Trafford. We won 1-0, and I scored the only goal. “It was a great way to kick-start my career at Leicester. Then, of course, at the start of my second season (1998/99), I got into the team alongside Heskey, and I was a regular then for the next two seasons.” In 1998/99, City finished 10th in the Premier League and reached the League Cup Final against Tottenham Hotspur, with Tony scoring in both legs of the semi-final against Sunderland. “I was voted Player of the Year that season by the fans, which was fantastic," Tony continued. “I think I got 16 goals, and we got to the League Cup Final against Spurs. Losing in injury time was a real frustration. I was feeling sorry for myself on the pitch at the end of the game. I’d worked for 16 years to win a trophy and this was my fourth Wembley defeat. I was crying my eyes out and then I felt this arm around me. It was Martin, who said: 'Don't worry, I promise that we'll be back next year'. 'Gaffer,' I said, 'I'm 33 years of age. We're not coming back next year'. He was true to his word, of course, and we beat Tranmere the following year, and I got my one and only winner’s medal. “Winning the League Cup in 2000 was a wonderful feeling for me. When I went to Leicester, I wasn’t sure what I’d achieve, but in the end I won my only trophy, scored my 200th league goal and scored for the first time at Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester United. I also played in Europe for the first time.” At the end of the 1999/2000 season, Tony’s time at Leicester was almost at an end. He added: “Emile left for Liverpool (in March 2000), which we all understood. When Martin left in the summer to go to Celtic, Steve Walsh and I wanted to continue Martin’s good work and we put in a presentation to be joint managers, with our plans for players we would sign. The directors were pleasantly surprised, but they had already decided that they were going to appoint Peter Taylor. When he came in, he wanted to deal with the younger players, which I understood but I think he probably saw me and Walshy as a threat. He couldn’t wait to get us out of the door! “It was a great shame. Everyone in football knows that I'm a West Ham man but I've got huge affection for Leicester City and for Everton as well and I feel l very proud and privileged to have played for three special clubs where I always tried to give one 100 per cent.”

    Not sure what all the hassle is about personally? Of course I want us to strengthen this window but if we don’t then it doesn’t matter. This squad has got us in the top 4 of the prem, into a cup semi-final & still competing in the fa cup. That’s some success already. Financially let the other clubs pay over the price, it allows us to have more money in the kitty come the summer compared to the teams in a similar position to us. Chill out.

    This from yesterday’s Athletic interview with Kourtney Hause. “The plan was to foul them, break up play. It’s part of the game. We’re old enough and experienced enough to know what we have to do. As soon as they looked like they were going to play through we broke up the play. That was the aim.” Goes to show how accepted it is now that players will just come out after the game and say “yeah we realised that if we just foul them every time they attack they can’t score”. Just because we do it too it doesn’t make it right.

    I don't think Maddison was selfish with his chances the other night, his finishing style gives keepers a chance though sometimes, one in particular he shouldn't have given the keeper a chance to save it. Tries to be to precise with technique and skies some too easy. He works on his finishing he could be pushing 15-20 goals a season in a good team.

    "A club need to have applied for a permit prior to the window closing". I might be wrong but time shouldn't be an issue as long as the application is sent before the deadline, the bigger issue is meeting the criteria. Even if he doesn't pass their "points based system", I'm sure he'd be accepted by the FA Exceptions Panel who consider the players "experience and value". A first team starter for a solid Portuguese first division team who is going to cost €20m+ is surely plenty of experience and value. If I remember correctly, Kramaric failed the points based system but was granted the permit by the panel. He was playing in Croatia and cost under £10m so it could be argued that Tapsoba has more experience and value.

    Need Praet back desperately for this one. His calm industry in midfield and ability to pull a miracle long ball out of nowhere will be invaluable against these guys. I also don’t think I’d be inclined to bench Kelechi for this one. His form is better than Vardy’s at the moment.

    Said it before and I’ll say it again. I feel sorry for Coventry. They’ve seen a long, sorry decline over many years because the club is run by litigious, intransigent crooks masquerading as a hedge fund. They currently haven’t got a home, barely anyone goes to watch them anymore and the relationship between owners, fans and the city has become completely toxic. Rival or not, it’s sad to see a once proud institution just fvcked into the ground. Had things gone differently for us, we could’ve ended up in a similar situation. Forest and Derby? Don’t care. They’ve got each other for company.

    Don't buy this. I'm from Leicester and I'm very proud of the place. To me its identity is subtler than the cliché-ridden towns like Newcastle, Liverpool etc. It has a tolerance, a big heart, humour and intelligence that - as someone who has lived in a lot of places - I find very appealing, and actually pretty rare. And the fact that people aren't constantly living up to some perceived idea of themselves (scousers, geordies, cockneys etc) that - God knows - grates very quickly. I think the 'dullness' of our support has more to do with the type of people who go to football now that things like high prices, membership schemes, season-tickets, all-seaters etc etc have taken the game largely away from its traditional support-base. A lot of clubs suffer from this. It's not the place's fault.
