  1. Don't mean to be confrontational but I disagree with a lot of this. Selling 1 key asset every summer doesn't make you a selling club imo, nor does it inhibit your ambition to break into the top 6. In fact I'd argue the exact opposite in that selling a player for a lot of money every summer and being clever in how you replace them (Maguire and Soyuncu being the most recent and obvious example) is the only long term strategy that will see a club like Leicester establish themselves as a top 6 side. The main reason for this being the traditional big 6 clubs are typically always going to be able to

  2. Long time no see. Starting an Open University course in Oct on the Social Sciences. Waiting for student loan to be approved. Just looking at the assignment book is frightening. It covers and can lead to others things such as criminology cosmetology so not a meaningless degree as some think Good thing is I dont have to pay the loan back unless i get a job paying over 26k. Companies will be lining up to employ a 70 yr old or if i go further 75 tr old. :Seriously it is for my own satisfaction and acheiving something before Mr GR comes for me. Also moving flats soon. Not far. Same street but

  3. We can still appreciate how much the owners have done for us and how we are lucky in having them, whilst also being allowed to disagree with a decision they've made.

  6. I think we can all agree that we’re incredibly grateful for everything Vichai & now Top have done for us. That’s not in dispute. It certainly doesn’t give them (or whoever came up with this) the right though to take the piss as they have done. Loyalties are being stretched here. I don’t think anyone has suffered more, financially, than everyday people like us. Millionaires may not have made much during this but they’re still millionaires. A lot of people don’t have a pot to piss in anymore.

  8. Some of the bootlicking responses I’ve seen to this are as appalling as the issue itself. Let’s have it right. Whatever the owners have ‘done for us’ has been for themselves more. They’ve made a tonne of cash out of this club and have grown an international reputation off the back of it. I will never praise any owner for doing a good job of running the club. That’s my minimum expectation. If they don’t get rid of the £70 blackmail scheme then Hinckley will get my money instead. This has pissed me off enough that they might anyway.

  9. The way this is portrayed in the BBC’s gossip column is fairly typical of how the media suck up to Man Utd Manchester United could walk away from negotiations with Borussia Dortmund for England forward Jadon Sancho, 20, and instead return for talks in a year. (Sunday Express) “Manchester United could walk away from negotiations ...” ! The article should say “Dortmund have told Manchester United to fvck off unless they are willing to pay the full asking price for Jadon Sancho”.

  11. I’d have liked to see them try and pull this stunt with the £70 admin fee when we were back in the championship. If it went towards the season ticket cost next season rather than being non refundable then I’d accept it but to say it will be non refundable if we don’t have a full capacity game this season is wrong on so many fronts. They’re simply forcing you to pay it knowing full well they have demand for ST from others. Everyone should stand up and refuse but that will never happen, they’ll be some on here who say they don’t want to pay it but will due to the scare of

  13. I think plenty do, unfortunately. I agree that’s how things are. I suppose we all have our limit as to how much we are willing to tolerate, or at least actively support by putting own our money in. I’m a hypocrite in many ways. I buy a season ticket, I pay for Sky Sports and BT Sports. But I’ve felt myself drifting away for a while. Just feeling more detached from top level football and Leicester City. This is probably the issue which will give me the excuse I need. Maybe it’s just age. I’ll get more enjoyment from paying to watch a small fan-run club and be

  14. I'm not sure why anyone should dislike him he served us well, we made a massive profit from him and we have a better replacement. Sure he's gone to Man U and is a bit cocky about it but he was when with us and playing for England. I think you'll find it'll be sometime before we can keep players in demand from moving on to a club that pays more and has a better chance of winning things. Don't most people want that for them selves.

  15. The reasoning was that they didn't want one person for example paying £18 for the seat and the person next to them paying £23 for a very similar seat. So the only sensible answer is to have both of you pay £35, you know, to keep things fair.

  18. If you're only selling one asset per year, you do keep the core of the team. The core of the team in 2016 when Kante left (Morgan, Huth, Drinkwater, Mahrez, Albrighton, Okazaki, Vardy) is now almost completely different to the core now. And you can clearly see an improvement in the quality of the squad despite selling one key player every summer during those last 4 years. The club does not make enough commercial revenue, nor does it compete regularly enough in European football to spend £100m+ net every summer, that's just the reality of the business. Everyone goes on about Everton

  19. We all realise the situation is difficult bud, but I can't understand how people agree or think it's ok for OAPs or people with underlying health conditions to pay £70 even though they more than likely won't attend games.

  20. People aren’t moaning because of a couple of quid, it’s a substantial amount of money for people. Maybe you are one of the lucky ones, but a lot of people have suffered financially during the pandemic so £70+ match day prices is an unexpected, and entirely avoidable, expense if they want to return to the stadium. The extra revenue it’s going to generate for the club is fractional in comparison to the cost to the individual fan. The club have made a total mess of this and the uproar is warranted.

  24. The replies to UFS' post on this on Facebook are hideous. Just apologists all over the place, people saying the £70 is "refundable", people claiming the scheme is the same for all PL clubs. Makes me wonder how much the club could actually get away with before some people would actually start to question it.

  25. There's nothing worse than blind loyalty. They could ask you to pay £500 and you'd sit there and pay it because they've given us a free beer and scarf? There's been various other suggestions made throughout the thread, all of which will sit better with most season ticket holders. You didn't even realise the £70 was non-refundable if capacity is limited throughout next season?

  26. Am I the only one more annoyed by the full match day tickets prices than the £70? Yeah the £70 is an outrage and nonsensical, but at least there is a chance we get that back. Whereas if most of the season is at a reduced capacity it’s going to potentially cost us more than our season ticket cost to see half of the matches. It would have been easy to only let us sit in our price categories and then charge 1/19th our ST price each match.

  27. I’ve just flicked through this thread, maybe taken in three pages, but just shows you how human beings are. Everyone is all positive and appreciate the club when we break the bank on a player, or you get a free beer and scarf, but when the going gets a bit tougher and harder decisions need to be made, you are off on one, moaning, complaining and have no thought for the difficult time the club is in trying to solve a very difficult situation. It is incredible how people are really, it’s quite sad, but then again the moaners would have had the capacity and capability to d

  28. Really late every Saturday night in my younger days, the radio station always put “Maggot Brain” on. Something for the folks heading home after the bars closed. It was a long old senseless ramble of a song, but you could count on it about 2:30 am or so. Almost seemed like a coherent piece of music if you were wasted. Well not really. I don’t know what made me think of that.

  29. Hopefully the club come to their senses, the £70 retainer fee should be the absolute minimum that is gone (or at least kept in credit for a future ST purchase). I've got no interest in attending games in the current situation and I imagine others feel the same. The high match fee should really be 1/19th of a season ticket too, but at least going to games is a choice that people can make if they decide they want to pay the full match day amount, that's their decision. Well done to everyone who emailed the club btw.

  31. Doesn't need to be today, as the only change needed is to allow the £70 to count as a deposit for full season ticket renewal beyond this season, rather than only this season. They could make that change weeks from now, doesn't need to be before people start paying the £70. I don't think anyone has any issue with paying a £70 deposit up front, it's the fact that it seemingly won't carry over beyond this season that's the problem.

  34. The really big problem with this situation, which I don't think anyone has mentioned yet, is when the stadium reverts back to full capacity. Let's say, hyperthetically, that happened in January. All those that paid their £70 will then be expected to pay up the remaining £250 or whatever. What happens though with all those, maybe elderly or vulnerable, that still don't want to risk it? The club wont want several thousand empty seats every game. 2 obvious options: 1) Renew and start going again 2) Decide not to renew and lose your season ticket, despit

  36. Nothing in relation to the football club itself. They’ve taken more out than they’ve put in. Good for them. That’s the deal, so I don’t begrudge them that. I just don’t celebrate them either. They get credit for donations made to community institutions. They don’t have to do that as part of running a football club. The rest I’m not that interested in. I think we kid ourselves that our ownership isn’t as corrupt and self-interested as any other. The way they made their money and maintained their position in Thailand is something I strongly disapprove of and I know I’m a hypocrite to

  37. It's quite clear what they need to do here, people expect something for that £70. So it should be kept on account to use how we want, whether it's future season tickets, future cup games, a new shirt etc. If they are so desperate for our £70, they get it now and can then sort out there cash flow issues further down the line when we expect it back. Can I also say, that if they were so skint they probably shouldn't have sent out two lots of gear to season ticket holders that probably cost them a minimum of £3 postage.

  38. I agree with everything you say, this leaves a bitter taste in my mouth too. If any other business or place of entertainment, whether that be a cinema, bowling ally or restaurant, if they were to ask you to stump up the not unsubstantial sum of £70, just for the mere privilege of being able to return to their premises at some stage in the future and give them some more money, for absolutely nothing else in terms of entertainment or product in return, you'd think they were either on drugs or incredibly cheeky and presumably dismiss them out of hand as a future place of patronage.

  40. Take an upfront payment of the first month of all season ticket holders direct debits as the financial commitment. Members £20. This payments is returned to the final value of the ST cost at the end of the season, or if no full capacity games, the first payment of 21/22 season. Run the ballot as before, but instead of inflating ST prices by 60-80% to Match day ticket pricing, you charge 1/19th of the season ticket cost of each area that tickets are purchased in, ensuring you keep pricing architecture within the stadium, and allows STH to maintain their advantageous price.

  41. You have to feel sorry for King Power, all those billions in the bank but losing a few mil because of Covid. I’m joking of course. Fans are way down the food chain of importance and have been since 1992, despite what the club says. When it comes down to it we’re just there to be fleeced with booking fees, shit ko times, all the other bollocks we have to contend with and now £70 to retain your season ticket that you may as well flush down the latrine. Anyone who thinks Leicester City give a shit about their fans needs their head checking. They can chuck as many scarves, donuts and what

  42. Not being labeled "a selling club" doesn't mean you don't ever sell players if that makes sense. We've done nothing to suggest that we are turning into a selling club and the messages coming from the club via Rodgers is that key players are not for sale. However, everyone has a price. Maguire and Drinkwater were daylight robbery on our part (as will Chilwell be if we sell him for rumoured amount) Mahrez was just an exceptional talent and a one off really and Kante had the infamous min release fee.
