    With all of the respect that is obviously due to him, i certainly hope that is the case with morgan both for him and us.

    Depression

    So, business shit still rumbling on. Got a meeting that has been postponed 3 times now (on the day) to discuss arbitration and if he doesnt go ahead as previously agreed ive threatened to report him to his governing body and drag him through the displinary pages of his professional magazine. That should make legal action easier. Problem is im not sure he actually gives a shit and could out afford me on lengthy and expensive legal action. Trouble is, to walk away loses me 5 figures tied up in the business (not to mention my long term business pmans shot to shit) and still might not be the end of it, as he genuinely just wants me to stay and work through it even though he is giving nothing. My legal contract is shit, not to mention my mental state. Im fine in the meetings, very articulate, professional and get my point across but it falls on deaf ears, and i worry about it and mess up my own head in between. All bad meetings end up on a friday and **** me up for the weekend, impacts on my relationship etc etc but i NEED this meeting today now, regardless for my own sanity. Wish me luck, Oh and if anybody knows a good commercial legal person who does ft depression thread mates rates/ pro bono, give me a shout 🤣

    Claudio to Fulham

    This is a fact. He didnt Very unlikely, hard to disagree. Also true Shit second season, no doubt about it. We didnt expect him to improve it but i dare say if he did what puel has done we'd all be happy. Just shows the decisions already made by puel are tainted by his first season. Point made better by others (in their mother tongue) about why bigger clubs havent given him a chance. It does sound harsh, but the truth wasnt nice to see on the pitch. My translation above. Im taking this time to explain myself as i normally like your posts but have to disagree on this one. Maybe im giving too much benefit of the doubt, but it doesnt sound disrespectful to me, just cold hard facts. Love ranieri and genuinely think he stands a good chance with fulham this season, but not so sure about the following season based on our experience. Just don't want it going back to sniping over opinions, especislly when taking the language barrier into account, nothing that has been said is factually incorrect and they never actually said he was shit.

    Claudio to Fulham

    Steady on lads. English is obviously not his/her first language and it's a well reasoned post wher probably some of the nuances got lost in translation. I normally like both of your posts but this seems a bit off and certainly not in the spirit of the last few weeks. I thought we were doing well as a welcoming bunch and happy to see the "family" grow. Ps. Might seem a bit harsh but see the "sing for puel" thread to see the context in which i post this. It feels in danger of getting a bit vile again.

    Sing for Claude

    I think you're missing THE point. People are advocating singing a song for him. Considering the debate about should he stay or should he go, it seems obvious that the ONLY reason we could all agree on the possibility of singing him a song is purely down to the last 2 weeks. Re read it. Should we sing a song for him. I dont know how youve managed to confuse that with "Should we forgive him for everything, give him a 12 year contract and never sack him." Maybe, just maybe its not everyone else and could be down to you and what you are typing.

    Sing for Claude

    Possibly as early as after the international break. Maybe not. But i think, first game a week after the deaths, followed by first home game, at the site of the deaths, after travelling to and from thailand for the funeral. THAT IS TOO ****ING SOON. Get it? I liken your comments to that of Dan Roan, but at least in his defence, he didnt realise it would be broadcast to loads of people who cared. You did. ****ing troll.

    Boxing

    Reddit boxing streams. First one works a charm
  10. This tragedy came shortly after a particularly bad time for me personally (see depression thread) which culminated in me doing a lot of self awareness work/soul searching. This video posted in another thread is excellent And my reaction to it, fits well here. " Love that. Im going to use it for a management training video when my company is big enough. I always wondered what company culture i want to create. THIS IS IT!  Thanks for being you Vichai, you legend." However, during a particular bad time with a very unhealthy business partnership, i also believe i can learn from vichai's sometimes apparently ruthless sackings and also how he got rid of the bad eggs (largely via nigel pearson), which i interpret as no change in the way he treated them, proven by the amount of sacked managers who have paid their respects), but, alongside the story of him abruptly stopping being a Chelsea fan, he will not tolerate things he does not agree with, or being treated in a way that he does not agree with. As some have said, easier said than done at times, and from personal experience, some people just do not deserve your compassion unfortunately, and need to be eradicated from your life in order to be able to be the best version of yourself. A but muddled i know and mixed between business and personal and obviously tainted by my own experiences, however this man is one i want to emulate as much as i possibly can. What he have me in life through Leicester city, is more than i coukd ever have imagined, but i feel i have gained even more in his passing, from finding out more about the man himself. My hero.

    What grinds my gears...

    Im in between the original reply and as far as izzys comment but agree with the condemnation as well. For my part, we try the first step, we really do, then the little ****ers piss about and embarass us so we give them the gadgets so at least we parents can enjoy it, and the kids seem "happy" too. Seems preferable to beating the shit out of them in a packed restaurant.

    Depression

    Not read it yet but in light of @stix post, jyst received this inan email from acas with the subject "stress, anxiety, mental health" https://acasnational.cmail19.com/t/ViewEmail/r/7F1B89CF8703F6682540EF23F30FEDED/5599C95F0DB071F5405DC10595964AA8

    Depression

    https://www.totaljobs.com/careers-advice/money-and-legal/a-guide-to-bereavement-leave Have a look at that. 1 day is generally not enough. If you have a sick policy where you get paid, pull a sickie. Also a doctor will undoubtedly sign you off with depression if you ask even if you have no history as it is a recognised response to grief. Bottom line is that you need to take whatever you need, but getting paid is in no way guaranteed. However if you do have contractual sick pay, **** em. And im a business owner myself and it would be very difficult to get rid of someone for being sick. Disclaimer: some bosses are just *****, we've all had em. This has only come up because they are acting like one. Look after yourself, as most of the time, no-one else is going to. When i was employed, rhe warehouse manager took time off sick because his father in law died and his wife needed him. The boss said to me that he only had 2 days off when his wife died of cancer. He seemed to need it explaining to him that being the owner and md is slightly different to working in the warehouse.

    Depression

    Can i recommend "lets talk - wellbeing"'s rolling 7 week stress control classroom/presentation with handouts based course. It is a self referral service that my gp put me on to. Low level cbt/self help but witha follow up with access to further help. My issue is long term "medical depression" and although i dont really get anxiety anywhere near as bad, a lot of the stuff that was less relevant to me sounds right up your street. Anythings got to be worth a try when you are at your lowest. Good luck and Godspeed.

    Cardiff City away

    You can still get them in the home end online. You have to go through all areas individually to find one but cant imagine there being any trouble tomorrow

    Cardiff Pre Match Thread

    Which part? I can't see it. I think my post following yours shows that they are on the same page (if you are talking about whether the result matters, and even though the link i put seems to be trying to say vardy doesnt think the result matters) (Just more proof imo that a lot of the media is bollocks, filling in the gaps with what they think but making it look like fact, then being prpven completely wrong elsewhere)

    Cardiff Pre Match Thread

    https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/jamie-vardy-reveals-how-leicester-13522024 Manager Claude Puel says the outcome of this weekend's match at Cardiff City is important but his striker can't agree. "People are saying the result on Saturday doesn’t matter, but it does," he added. "We all have to come together and do him proud. We want to play, it’s what he would have wanted. We are playing to honour his name." - I like the fact that he has had the balls to say this and it comes across in the right way. (Although the bit about his striker cant agree seems to be an ill advised negative when i read it back, completely missed it first time around) If we lose, i wont be bothered in the slightest as this is far bigger but he gets my respect for this statement. Also colin - " And then somehow the two teams have got to get on with a game of football. It's an important game for us and Leicester but it is a game of football. "It seems irrelevant talking about the game compared to the bigger things that have happened this week. "I don't know what to expect from us or them. You'd probably have to ask me after the game. I haven't got a clue what to expect." Cardiff's squad features two former Leicester players, Sol Bamba and Lee Peltier, with the former likely to start in central defence on Saturday....... https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/46060271 And Asked whether the tragic circumstances could have an effect on Bamba, Peltier or any other of the Cardiff players, Warnock added: "They might not play well but whoever is fit will be starting and it could have a certain effect on lads, you never know. “I don’t know what to expect, that’s the honest answer to the question. I don’t know what to expect from us or them. You’d probably have to ask me after the game. I haven’t got a clue what to expect." https://www.walesonline.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/how-former-leicester-city-players-15362719 Hats off to all involved and the dignity shown.

    Depression

    Never heard of it but just googled it and it looks a lot like the lets talk wellbeing sevice with great addons like the helpline. Ive found lets talk wellbeing to be great but the helpli mine is something that i feel would have really helped when i was at my worst What area do you live in, as im surprised id never heard of it. If leicestershire, have you had bad experiences with kets talk wellbeing or just different doctors recommend different groups. Short of full on counselling (again) i now have a very good "toolbox" of self help to call upon, but do feel i have pretty mich exhausted their helo, in particular re "multiple issues" which they seemed to point me away from their counselling for this reason, but i notice this group specifically mention multiple issues in one of their services so i may be calling on them in the future. (Not saying lets talk wellbeing are bad, they have been excellent for me and i have been signposted to relationship counselling with my wife which i know is now needed, just using what i know for comparison, this does look very good) Good luck and please keep us informed. I think in a lot of ways this tragedy has actually lifted me out of my depression strangely but more by way of stopping self pity as the perspective from this reminds me i am a lucky man.

    The saddest thing in any bereavement is that life goes on. It doesnt feel right that other people are moving on with their life unaware that anything has happened while you are suffering. Obviously this is less the case here with the whole world knowing what has happened, but ultimately it is this routine that also helps a lot of people in bereavement. For example i knew a young lady who lost her husband and it was her responsibility to her young children that pulled her through. This decision rests with all closely involved, the family, the players, the club, and i certainly feel confident that with the immense dignity showm throughout that this decision has been made for the right reasons for the people involved and if it helps them, or feels right to them, that is all that matters. If it turns out to be the wrong decision from a footballing viewpoint, so what, all we can do is give our love and support, and hope it gives some measure of comfort to those more closely involved.

    Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha has died at the age of 60

    Thanks for the responses, i was on page 23 of this thread when i wrote it, and then saw posts of people returning at gone 10, so will definitely be going tomorrow night. Should have read ahead but the need to go was too strong. Thanks again.

    Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha has died at the age of 60

    Does anybody know if there is a time that is "too late" to visit the ground? All lights off etc? I now feel the NEED to go, before it is gone and am thinking about going tomorrow night after trick or treating with my children. What is the latest people have been recently, and was it still busy or lights out? Likely to be about 830pm tomorrow by the time i get there and want to take the children as well but if they wont see anything I'll take time off work and have to go alone, but think it is important for my children to understand what this man meant to daddy. Rest in peace great man. I hope the immense outpouring from the city, county, country, and world can bring you some comfort, but wouldn't be surprised or upset if it is simply what you expected, having been so close to such a great man and witnessing first hand the impact he had on all he encountered.
