  1. That pretty much sums up my feelings as a football fan in general and why I'm so proud to always be a Leicester fan. Everyone loves an underdog, until that dog gains an advantage over your dog. Football, as with most things in life, has become so obsessed with money that your bigger clubs really don't care what happens to the little guys. I really, really can't stand your Man City's or your Chelsea's. PSG continually chucking money around to be successful in Europe knowing they should already have the league title in the bag are the best examples of what could happen to the prem

  2. Anxious? We're in a lockdown. Watching Leicester every 4 days is actually one positive and bit of enjoyment at the moment. As many games as possible please.

  3. Positive things regarding covid-19 at the moment. - We have incredibly effective vaccines and in Israel they're now seeing cases and hospitalisations drop off in over 60's (who have had the Pfizer jab) compared to the under 60's. - The Pfizer and Moderna mRNA jabs are genuinely groundbreaking and in time to come we'll look at them as one of the greatest human achievements of the 21st century. - We have vaccinated 80% of over 80's. That's approximately 2.5 million people. Approximately 160 jabs save 1 life according to research. Therefore we've already prevented the death

  4. Great read from Martin Samuel in the Mail Online in which he states that the upcoming New successful clubs like Leicester City are becoming a thorn in the original top four teams who want to break away and have their own European super League, well worth a read very intriguing !! https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-9185819/Leicester-nemesis-Europes-cosy-cartel-proposed-super-league.html

  5. These quotes from Andrea Agnelli are disturbing: ‘I have great respect for everything Atalanta are doing,’ he said, ‘but without international history and thanks to just one great season, they had direct access to the primary European club competition. Is that right or not? ‘Then I think of Roma, who contributed in recent years to maintaining Italy’s ranking. They had one bad season and are out, with all the consequent damage to them financially. ‘The point is how we balance the contribution to European football and the performance of a single year.’

  6. The thing you overlook is that every single sport you mention (or league in the case of The Hundred) is shit and dull. Even the IPL loses most of its lustre once the league takes shape. Also: football works. It doesn’t need repairing. The biggest threat is the threat of disproportionate wealth, to which the solution is absolutely not ‘even more disproportionate wealth’.

  7. I can promise you ICU beds are not full of old people - they don't even get an ICU bed, they die on the wards. Critical Care however is rammed full of fat people and we are ****ing sick of it. Referral after referral of 100kg + people. I have to find 4+ nurses to turn and clean half these patients. Some shifts it's so bad, if you are really fat you get 1 turn a shift. As I lift yet another patient's huge tummy so a colleague can clean in the fat folds to try and stop them smelling like a wet dog I think to myself "how the hell did we get like this as a nation".

  8. If we ever do that, the last place you'd find me is anywhere near a Leicester City match. Imagine if this conversation had cropped up in 2008, fairly certain you'd have had a different point of view given our relative standing at that time... Oh, and not sure I'd be using The Hundred as a brilliant example of how this kind of thing is wanted and/or needed. It's gone down like a bucket of cold sick with most existing cricket fans.

  11. Put simply, they've spent loads of money, it doesn't necessarily work if the management & structures aren't good enough, so rather than learn from that, they just want to change the rules so their corrupt game can continue without interference. And it's nothing to do with Brexit/EU/pathetic patriotism, it's to do with the international language of greed.

He went twitter saying how much he liked wolves... next minute a local paper thought he meant the football team and posted that. A day later Hamill confirmed he was talking about the animal not about a team "he never heard of"

  15. The Premier League has the most to lose from a European Super League -- it makes more money than any of the other leagues, is the most competitive and has the most teams with followings outside the Big 6: There are more Leeds, Everton, and Aston Villa fans in the world than comparable teams in the other big leagues. What I don't get about the European Super League proponents is that it will just be kicking the can down the road for most of them. A closed "Super League" will itself develop its own Burnleys and Southhamptons. When the next TV deal comes, the perpetual losers of the S

  16. It's the attitude of the Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli that gets me. He'd seriously deny Atalanta a Champions League place because other clubs like Roma had contributed more to Italy's UEFA ranking in the past. Yet, clearly, Atalanta would've had the better team, so why shouldn't they be given the chance to carry that Italian baton in Europe? As it happens, Atalanta have had a decent spell in the Champions League. I can't remember the last time Roma did as well as Atalanta did. And look at us, making it to the quarter final stage despite at one point looking like we

  21. It's weighted with the Mail's usual venom and its perverse and hypocritical delight in slamming the 'haves', and but it's absolutely accurate about the damnable motives of these absentee owners whose pride and pleasure has more, much more, to do with making money and establishing themselves as an elite - in creating this rather sterile idea of a super league. These people have little sense of the passion and loyalty of being a fan. They appeal to the plastic fan or perhaps some wealthy dilettante 'appreciators' of 'superior' football. It would eradicate much of what makes football e

  22. The same senior players who Rodgers has found it very easy to work with, who bought into his vision straight away, has got fabulous results with, making him the best performing manager (results wise) in our history? The players were not the big problem during Puel's tenure. Had he worked with them rather than pursuing his own flawed and stubborn ways, he could easily have found some success. That's what really frustrated me - he had no flexibility, he wanted to move on all the immortals, he could have made few simple tweaks to keep players on board but his way of working alienat

  28. We have been honking against Everton under Rodgers, especially in the 2 games since Ancelotti arrived. I think we will look to write a few wrongs and this seems to be the season we do it. They found the midfield battle way too easy before Xmas but it ought to be different this time around. We also have a stronger defence to cope with their front 3, it would be nice not to gift Richarlison his standard free goal in the first half too.

  29. So you’d advocate dropping a winning formula which has taken us to the summit? However briefly it was. No matter the height we have, we will not successfully defend set pieces. That needs addressing on the training field rather than changing our whole system. At least that’s this arm chair managers views

  32. I'm sure most people are at a low ebb at least some of the time. I know that I am. It's easy to focus on the severe short-term negatives of lockdown and the potential long-term risks of other things going wrong, like unemployment and problems with the vaccine. But there is light at the end of the tunnel - in the shape of the vaccine. Unless there are major problems with that, things will look a lot better within a couple of months. We should be able to do more, travel more, see more people, have more fun etc. I'm pretty much writing off February and March, but focu

  34. When Vardy is not fit I would play Under instead of Albrighton. MA is defo in our best 11 on form, but I feel his strengths suit team balance with movement of JV. Whereas with Perez as CF, Under gives more balance / required I reck MA starts v Everton and is then subbed after 61 mins for Under after we don’t create many chances

  35. We have got three full backs that are better than Chilwell and a fourth with the potential to be. I think that when we say this it is more a case of having a laugh at Chelsea's expense rather than Chilwell's and also to promote our club's transfer achievements. We have sold a full back and bought in two of better quality for Half the price. Isn't that something worth smiling about? You would have to be a saint not to poke Chelsea fans with that particular stick. Personally I have no feeling whatsoever for Cjhilwell, he's a Chelsea player, but plenty trashed him when he was h

  37. Some interesting tidbits from the pre-match press conference. Comments about attackers are quite interesting I think: Perez to play instead of Vardy? “It just depends on the game. The type of game we want to play. There’s a lot made when Jamie doesn’t play, he’s one of the best in the league, but our development is about the collective. Forty of our goals have come from others. Jamie’s got 13. Ayo I know will score goals. He hasn’t featured as much this season. He will play a really pivotal role. Whether it’s him, or Kelechi, or someone else, the responsibility for goals is the te
