    Well I was treated to a Gretsch Jet Club for my birthday so feeling happy. Just need to learn it now..... x
  2. Ha, this is me with everyone. Although I do walk around with my tiny willy hanging out so maybe my own fault? With regards to Maddison, I think he is a very promising young player who has had a very reasonable first season and am excited to see how good he can become. I fully expect England caps to come next season for him. X
  3. Of course not, you can say exactly what you wish to, I believe what you have done there is create a straw man. Firstly, "He was garbage in that game" is very different to "his IS utter dogshite and prances around like a fairy". Secondly, even if you did say something which I deemed "offensive" I have never said that is not allowed or that I have become the self appointed bastion of light on the forum creating "my rules", we are both better than pretending that is the case. I am merely saying that if someone says something like that they cannot get too upset and offended if someone disagrees with them. I am all for free speech, never censorship. X
  4. I respect your comments regarding corners but I think very few corners come to much. Statistically his corners are no worse than other's in the league, it is just you see them more often and maybe concentrate on the bad ones more than the good. Corners are very rarely scored when you look at the stats. Regarding his attitude I just don't see him in the way you do, he is a young kid with millions in the bank, were I him I would be a massive nobhead. He seems to me no more arrogant that a lot of other footballers and in all the interviews I have seen his attitude seems good. Thank you for responding, this forum too often descends into name calling from either sides so good to have an actual conversation. X
  5. Bert if someone said "I think he is overrated and can improve on x, y and z" then of course that is fine. It is comments like "Swell head, arrogant, complete and utter dogshite, fairy, etc" that gets people's backs up. it is a classic technique of people that like to troll forums. Say something offensive, then when you are challenged cry free speech. I am all for debate about players but let's try not pretend that all criticism is above challenge. X
  6. Mate I think there comments are slight "banter". No one is saying that you cannot have an opinion ,they are just disagreeing with yours. Free speech doesn't mean you can just say what you want without comeback. It means you can say what you want and that others can challenge it. Comments like "log out" are just silly and I think you have taken them a little too seriously. Some of your criticisms of him seem a little over the top or without factual basis and people are challenging you on that. They are not saying you cannot have an opinion but they want to challenge your beliefs. Some folk may have gone over the top but some of your comments bordered on personally offensive towards Maddison and some people think that is not on. What actual facts and statistics do you have to back up your views of Maddison? I disagree with most of your comments so far but I am always interested in hearing alternate viewpoints.
  7. Refereeing should be like the police force and parking attendants. Those that REALLY want to do it shouldn't be allowed to do it. X
  8. Was feeling quite good about the game and life in general until I read through this thread. What in shitting crikey is wrong with everyone. Gonna just turn the lights off and think about infinity and death for a bit now. X
  9. I'm not sure I said he deserved a call up? Though if I did please quote me the bit where I said it. I just think it's churlish to be as harsh on him as you seem to be and to ignore the facts so blatantly in front of you because your personal opinion is that he's not been great. He currently has created more chances than Hazard, Salah, David Silva, Messi, Ronaldo, Pogba, Sterling, etc. He has achieved this at 22 in his first full season in the premier league and at a team that by all accounts hasn't been firing on all cylinders. I just don't see how he could have achieved this if he's not had a good game since October? Stats are not the be all and end all but I like them because sometimes they force me to question my own viewpoints and in the past I've realised that sometimes I've been guilty of confirmation bias. Like I said, I don't think he was robbed by not getting a call up but to suggest he's not had a very promising first season seems unfair. X
  10. It's hilarious eh? Almost too funny to read most the time. X
  11. Messi a better player than Ronaldo. Has Ronaldo had a better career though?
  12. He really is a fvcking incredible player. X
  13. Yeah, I am firmly in the Messi camp but one couldn't really argue if someone wanted to call ol' Ronny the greatest of all time. He just loves to win. X
  14. Never been a huge fan of him as an individual but Ronaldo is an absolute beast in every way. What a player. X
  15. We've had so many greats. But I think judged on what he achieved whilst still at Leicester rather than what he went on to achieve with someone else he is our greatest ever. As @Babylon said, I think you tend to romanticise those players you grew up with (Walsh, Elliott, Claridge, etc) as I think it's harder to have "heroes" when you're an adult but objectively his achievements stand up against anyone to have ever worn the blue shirt. G'won Jamie. X
  16. Haha. I'm fully aware of my nobber credentials.
  17. I have seen nothing to suggest he is arrogant and certainly not an arsehole? I think you may be guilty of confirmation bias. He seems a decent young man. I was a right nobber in my early 20s. X
  18. Was gonna get "Leicester City Football Club - The Greatest Champions of all Time - Foxes Never Quit" on me old winkle after the title win but due to space restriction issues had to settle for "COYB". Thank you and goodnight. X
  19. Like I said in another fun player bashing thread, you can give me all the stats you want but if Keith from Glenhills says he's shit that he can get in the fvcking sea. X
  20. I hope he stays forever. Just look at that little face of his. All time Leicester Legend. Just have him around to smile and clap at players as they run out, it would cheer me up. X
