  1. Amongst all the doom and gloom and transfer hype I've just read that Lloyd Dyer is retiring. Obviously we've gone up a few levels since he left but he played a massive part in getting us from League One to the Premier League. Still sad he didn't sign on for a year in the PL, he deserved it but obviously wanted more. Probably not worth a new thread but I just bloody loved Lloyd and I'm pretty sure he loved us.

  2. The PFA award is voted for by the players themselves, therefore for Cags to get into the team in his first full season in the first team is phenomenal! That means his fellow pros voted for him, and to be honest looking at the way he dealt with players like Salah, Mane, Aguero, even in losses speaks volumes about what other players think about him. The guy is fast, strong, technical and good in the air. Opposition players don't like going up against him and rate him as a player. This is also why KDB won the main award instead of a Henderson. Henderson is super important to his team, but KDB is

  3. Think I've posted this before but there was one interview he did in 2011 when he was being linked with Wednesday that wa bloody top tier: "I am aware I have been linked with other clubs but, as far as I am concerned, I am a Leicester player and I love it here. I don't want to go anywhere. This is my club. I can't see why I would go anywhere else. I love this club and everyone in my family loves this club. My young son loves this club. Everyone at the club is good to me and the fans are great to me. I don't want to go anywhere. This will probably sound a bit

  4. I'm getting a bit fed up of the blame being laid at the door of certain groups in society. I've seen people of all ages following the rules diligently and not following the rules diligently. I saw groups of kids gathering on the park at the height of the peak. I've seen groups of middle-aged people stuffing themselves around a single pub bench without a mask in sight, I've seen elderly people in supermarkets without masks at a time when they should've been at home and had someone doing their shopping for them. And I've seen people in all those groups followi

  6. What has pissed me off the most (although not more than this £70 bollocks) is the fans on Twitter, jumping on anyone who dares complain about the club saying you’re not a real fan if you criticise. This ‘coach 1’ mentally has always riled me but never more so than now.

  8. Loved Lloyd. One of those players who would always give you everything. Happy retirement! On thing to add - this picture of the 13/14 squad with that X factor winner always makes me laugh. Lloyd's complete lack of interest is just beautiful.

  10. Not existing. I was walking round a church in Norfolk a couple of weeks ago and came across a brass memorial to a couple who had died in 1497, and thought about how they died two decades before the reformation, before the enlightenment, the industrial revolution, world wars, everything that has made our modern world. There are billions of things that will happen we will never know about.

  12. Well - two asking price offers knocked back and then bag the latest one at £25k under this morning...! i i did some number crunching it was as much as i was comfortable going to with the work that would need to be done.. It was the nicest out of the three too when i really think about it, bur, i didn't think we could get it at the right price...! It needs a fair amount of work, but, we can move in, drop our bags and be very comfortable in the shorter term... it's a beautiful detached Victorian place with a garage and lovely west facing garden on a really nice street!

  13. Me and my girlfriend have been saving up our house deposit for the last 2 years and finally hit our target yesterday. Can't actually buy anywhere until at least April next year but feels a huge relief. Whilst saving weve been finding fantastic houses in our areas and at our price, had a look yesterday and it was all shite which was a bit annoying. Hopefully in 6 months time it'll be looking good again.

  16. In fairness I think there is a clear difference between the likes of Vardy, Suarez, Ibrahimovic etc to the likes of Slimani, Beckford and Balotelli. It's okay to be a bastard so long as you have a great willingness to win games of football. Team mates will put up with you if you're scoring goals/keeping clean sheets and winning games. They won't put up with you if you're not willing to put the effort in. Remains to be seen what type of character Barbosa is (I imagine the latter) but we shouldn't just ignore these types of personalities because they keep stan

  17. Matt Hankcock suggesting the testing shortage isn't owing to a lack of tests - it's because the tests are being taken by those who don't need them. I'm not even sure how to digest this sensibly. Are people supposed to know they're negative without the test? Who 'needs' a test other than those with symptoms, surely they're not doing it for fun.

  18. Our own individual existence. You, as a sperm, beat the race of c200 million others to fertilise the exact egg required to create you and come into this world. Not only that, but this was the same for each generation before you, from human existence. The probability that you as a person are here living is incomprehensively astronomical. If any generation before you did not meet and create the offspring that eventually led to your own birth, you simply would never have existed. Sometimes that is worth reflecting on when you feel worthless. The fact you are here is an absolute mira

  19. I think that perhaps some might not remember that horrendous run after the Wycombe match in the 00's which carried over into a disastrous following season. Won't have any bearing on what happens from here but some of us are veterans of that period and carry the scars. We have history of this. Conversely, we know more than most what finishing with momentum can do the following season.

  20. Out of Evertons 3 new signings I think Doucoure will turn out to be the best bit of business. Only 27 years old, 20 million pound fee, used to the league and a huge physical presence in the middle of the park. I'd have liked us to signed him, he can play pretty much anywhere in the centre of the pitch and would have been great for those tough games where we need a bit of steel and fight. Our funds probably don't stretch that far this summer and that's why we've ended up sticking with Mendy for another couple of seasons which is a shame but understandable.

  21. I may be in a minority here, but looking up at the vastness of space and knowing what it is comforts rather than confuses me. If people had more terrestrial perspective, perhaps they'd realise just how petty a lot of the conflict that goes on here in our tiny corner of the Universe really is. Anyway, on topic: that life in one form or another has existed on Earth for almost 4 billion years, "complex" life has been a feature for only about 1/8 of that and humans themselves around 1/10,000 of it. That is a truly unbelievable amount of time. Also, that the Universe itself

  22. I have a vague recollection of a similar thread but can't find it. Looking at the sky tonight, I just cannot get my head around the fact it's not a sheet of plastic with some fairly lights in and is in fact just open space. Also that what you're seeing actually happened many years ago and may not still exist. I don't think I will ever fully comprehend it. So what other things can people not get their head around?

  23. But he didn't say the problem was people with symptoms getting tested, he said 25% of people getting tests shouldn't be having a test because they neither have symptoms nor are they in a group that is eligible for routine testing e.g health workers. I think a school that tested a whole class that shouldn't have been tested and people using them before/after holiday have been cited as examples.

  28. How supposedly empathetic, sentient human beings can shoot some of our most incredible, majestic, even endangered animals for fun - then pose, smiling with their corpses - is beyond me. Like, you know, enjoy killing living beings? It's natural to anthropomorphize other creatures, yet you wanna kill them from half a mile away with a rifle? There's something fvcking inherently wrong with you. You're damaged. Fvck, I feel bad if I accidentally tread on a spider.

  29. How television, the internet and the telephone work. I just don’t get it. How clever we are in one respect, and how flawed we are in another. As an example, we can fly to the moon, conduct complicated operations and have these complicated communication systems, yet we have governments who get elected ( all sides ) by false claims, lies and manipulation of the public. And we fall for it and takes different sides and support one side or the other.

  32. Death. This one always gets me. You live for a small number of years (even if you live to the average age, it's only a small number of years in time) and then it's over. Dead.... forever. With that, you become irrelvant, unless you have massively contributed to society like a William Shakespeare where your legacy and influence lives on. Also, timing. Sounds stupid but it's mental how something a minute either way can change your life forever.

  36. Cult hero. Unplayable when he knocked it into space behind a full back and scored some really important goals for us at that level. Remember his pride when he wore the armband at Carlisle in the cup - delivered a real captain’s performance to go with it too.

  37. People always mention Knockaert and Mahrez in our Championship winning season, but Dyer was hand down our best winger that season. Was absolutely brilliant in both our League One and Championship winning sides. Think he was probably the quickest Leicester player we've ever had as well. I'd say he was was even quicker than Vardy, Lineker and Joachim, or at least over short distances in terms of explosive acceleration - the way he would push the ball past a defender 12 yards from the goal kick line and with the defender 4 yards in front of him. He'd always beat the defend

  39. Certainly do not give him a thumbs up but don't challenge everything just for the sake of being the opposition. Yesterday saw a feed of Starmer being interviewed & the subject of Furlough was brought up & Starmer has said its wrong to stop it but then wouldn't be drawn into how long he would let it run for or what size pot he would allocate to Furlough if he was in charge, its easy to drop a fart & walk away & blame someone else if your not going to be held accountable.

  40. Yeah that annoyed me too. I think (and this is a problem with society these days anyway) there's just no middle ground any more. People need to remember to realise, in this context, you can love the owners for what they've done for the club so far since they took over but at the same time be annoyed and angered as to the route they've chosen for this season ticket scheme. That really is okay!

  41. Obscene amounts if true. This is what we're up against and what Rodgers no doubt was alluding to when he made comments about what other clubs can offer in that top 4/6 bracket. He got a lot of stick for it but look at these numbers?! Not a chance in hell we ever get close to that amount. I know people think he/the club are unambitious but there's a stark difference between that and what other clubs can offer. It really is possible to show ambition but not pay obscene amounts of money (in our position) against the likes of Chelsea who can just literally throw money around...

  42. The excess deaths will be the total of deaths directly and indirectly due to Covid. We might not be able to identify the exact proportion of deaths directly from Covid, but we will have a rough idea. It is still very helpful to know how many in total died from Covid + collateral damage (untreated cancers, additional suicides, poverty etc). That number can be compared between countries and we can see which country managed to minimise the total damage, and achieved the best balance between suppressing infections while reducing collateral damage.

  43. Punchable face, yes. However, it’s his inability to understand basic problems. It’s scary. His latest claim regarding the testing is absolutely ludicrous. It’s your fault (general public) that this fantastic brilliant system my team have produced is not working. Why’s that ? Well, you’re all showing up (25% of you) and you don’t have any symptoms. Hmmm... so why doesn’t your testing request criteria just reject applications from such people ? Seems an obvious and simple solution. For me, Hancock has done significant damage to the tories and they really need to get him out
