  1. Thanks for sharing and hope it's true. Was a bit gutted after reading the Mercury article suggesting any expansion is on hold. We really need to have a bigger stadium if we are to compete at the top end of the table. Fingers and everything else crossed you're right!
  2. I'd love to see Riyad stay for one more season, but wouldn't begrudge him if he went to a real Champions league contender. Like others have said, it sounds like he gave us another year when he could have gone last season and we fuc** it up with our terrible transfer dealings. More than last summer, I think this is going to be a real pivotal summer. The club still has some glow from winning the premier league and that amazing Champions League run. We really need to kick on and be in the hunt for top 4 next season to take advantage of the incredible achievements of last 24 months. I'm worried if we don't, then we'll have lost any short term chance of making us challengers at the top table for a while. The club will have no excuse in my book if they haven't already factored in losing Mahrez in their transfer hunt and they should do what it takes to get 2-3 players in that will help bump us up from mid-table to top 4 contenders. I think Everton are a good case in point, they had a shocking season last year, but they got the right players in and stuck to the way they play best. Let's not d**k around this summer with Riyad, set a deadline of the middle of Juen for the top players to commit or agree to sell to the highest bidder so that we can bid for the right quality replacements. Can't get some of the negative personal comments about Riyad because he's only being honest. If he was surrounded by better quality players, it would take the pressure off him both on and off the pitch, what's to argue about that? I still think if we line up Gilfi and a couple of other class players, he might decide to stay one more year.
  3. Mate. Chucking eggs and water bombs and drawing negative attention to the club is hardly going to help the lads. If we can matcha or beat the atmosphere of the Sevilla home leg no matter how the game is going, that will boost the lads to do their thing on the pitch.
  4. Their fans were great and it's such a shame some caveman had to do that on the way out. I didn't know what had happened, but we were walking past when we heard it all flare up. Hopefully didn't last long and it won't leave a bad impression of the rest of us
  5. Awesome atmosphere from start to finish, best I've ever experienced and that is including the Everton Match last year. I was sitting pretty close to you from the footage. I was in row cc seat 142
  6. Just been reading some of the comments on here. Before I carry on, I put it out there that I am of Indian origin and have a lot of involvement with the Indian community in the Belgrave area. There is a lot of support for the Foxes and I'd love it if they put something like this on the roundabout and it would get plenty of visibility as it's only a stone's throw from the City Centre. However, even I agree that there are more suitable locations, maybe the Main Fosse Park Roundabout as a practical high profile location, or perhaps the roundabout at the top of London Road outside Victoria Park; the location of that amazing celebration.
  7. Done! Thanks for arranging this, I think it's important that he hears from a wide spectrum of people.
  8. Unfortunately, I agree with you. Just hoping for a miracle turnaround
  9. Spot on
  10. Yes, BUT Ranieri only identifies the targets. I feel sorry for him that the team responsible for negotiating and bringing in his targets are so crap! He really has kept his dignity through all this. What else do you expect him to say? 'sorry, my players are not good enough and it's not my fault the best they could do was get me one unheard of defender on loan in 31 days!?'
  11. http://m.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/38862185 Huth manning up and urging everyone to pull together. Good move, now let's see them show a. It more hunger and togetherness!
  12. I agree with both of you and we as fans need to back them whilst they get through their learning curve. Rightly or wrongly, negativity or a lack of noise/support gets to the players and it's just counter productive. i think we as fans have to show our quality too. If it's a boring 0-0 for 5 matches I don't care, points are more important than performance for the rest of the season. Get behind them and help build their confidence and energy back up. Telling them that they are lazy c*nts is hardly going to help. Then we take stock in the summer and rebuild from there.
  13. Lawrence reminds me of Gray and he seems to have grown that confidence you need to take on players and try something special. I say get him back and give him a go off the bench. He seems to have got a bit of body strength to get past challenges whilst he's dribbling, which is something he lacked before he went on loan.
  14. No, I was talking about their goalkeeper. Made some great saves
