  1. Unpopular Opinions You Hold

    Nick Clegg was a decent politician and remains an eminently sensible political commentator. My feeling is that he found himself in an almost impossible situation at the point he formed the coalition government (Mervyn King telling him that the UK, European and (potentially) global economy was hanging in the balance). He sacrificed himself and his political party for the sake of the country. Not something the current incumbents of office and shadow office seem to be willing to do. Clearly, question marks hang over his judgement and role in that government. But, I don't think that should totally besmirch his work until that point, nor overshadow some of the good work he did in office - including his softening of Cameron's austerity cuts. Is that unpopular? It probably is.
  2. Russia: Should England boycott the World Cup?

    I disagree with the notion that sport and politics should not mix. It's an incredibly effective way of getting public engagement with political issues. Especially where other more traditional routes are not working. However, I am not convinced that England boycotting this World Cup would make much of a statement in isolation. If Russia's alleged actions over the last few years are proven then I believe that there should be a greater calling across the world for some response. Once you have several teams boycotting (especially if they are big nations), then sport has the real ability to make a real difference on a political level.
  3. Really great to have him back. Seems like an intelligent and grounded chap. When he is a fully fit and confident footballer, he is a very good footballer. Coincidentally I'm currently in hospital and have been here for a week with a kidney infection. It's pretty horrendous.
  4. Football Podcasts - Recommendations Please

    The Guardian's "Football Weekly" has been a mainstay of my podcasts for many years. However, as football 365 have reported (http://www.football365.com/news/exclusive-james-richardson-to-leave-guardian-football-weekly) James Richardson, the host, is leaving to join Muddy Knees Media. Muddy Knees Media will produce the ‘The Totally Football Show’, a podcast using Richardson as host with a focus on the Premier League and European football. I would hazard a guess that this new show will be worth a listen. I'd also suggest giving the new format of "Football Weekly" a go - it's likely to still be good. If you want something very loosely connected to football but high on entertainment value try "Athletico Mince".
  5. Gylfi Sigurdsson

    Fair enough, it looks like an offer may have been put in by us. Albeit, it was speculative at best.
  6. Gylfi Sigurdsson

    https://www.theguardian.com/football/who-scored-blog/2017/jul/26/gylfi-sigurdsson-everton-swansea-transfer-window Interesting read. Looks like we are likely to miss out on him, perhaps that's no bad thing at that price.
  7. N'Golo Kante - Confirmed - £32m to Chelsea

    Good luck to Kante. Wonderful player and I feel privileged to have watched him in Leicester blue. It's unfortunate our journey together has ended - perhaps prematurely - but his contribution to last season should never be forgotten!
  8. Can Leicester survive without Kante?

    That's a poorly written article
  9. LCFC V WBA Post match 2-2

    Really good match! Exciting stuff. We aren't half being treated to some of the most entertaining football this season. Unfortunate result but it's another point...

    Lcdc direct now showing this as sold out. If anyone has 2 tickets going spare I would be very grateful. Many thanks!
  12. FA Cup - Spurs (A) 10/01/16 4pm KO

    Cheers for the info. Struggling with lcdc direct. Is the sales centre next open on Tuesday? Hopefully they'll be able to let me know the situation. In any event does anyone have 2 tickets that they are wanting to shift? Many thanks.
  13. FA Cup - Spurs (A) 10/01/16 4pm KO

    Does anyone know if more tickets will be made available for this? I am trying to purchase with my two memberships and it says that there is no availability... Thanks
  14. Ticket Exchange Thread 2014/15

    If anyone is looking to shift a couple of tickets (adult) to the Saints match or can provide references I would be most appreciative! Obviously there will be some beer monies heading your way too... Send us a PM! Cheers!!
