    Watched them since 1981, supported properly since about 1989
  1. Championship 2017/18

    Can't help myself...
  2. Absolute cvnts of our time Pt.MXXVI

    That is a very good point. PS It took me years to realise that many people have such entrenched views (football, politics etc) that any kind of rational, reasonable debate on forums, social media etc can be pretty pointless.
  3. Absolute cvnts of our time Pt.MXXVI

    No, it's not unique to them but many of them do, in my experience, excel (if that is the right word) at having such a hatred of people who think differently that it precludes any reasonable kind of conversation.
  4. Absolute cvnts of our time Pt.MXXVI

    Brilliant at being a cringeworthy knob of the highest order. Like a lot of lefties, unable to engage in rational debate with people who have different opinions.
  5. Ex-Leicester City player news

    Ex manager rather than ex player but I recently stumbled across these old photos. What a performance that night at Filbo.
  6. The OH Leuven Thread

    The 'Pearson haters' will probably also say: "It's not his team / it's all down to the backroom staff / Cambiasso was the real reason OH Leuven won the game / Ranieri would've had the game won earlier / eeeee's gorra gooooo..." etc etc
  7. FIFA reject Adrien Silva appeal

    There's always a balance to be struck as a football journalist (and I pointedly make the distinction between football and, say, politics), to ask probing questions but not to come across as rude. I'm sure in this case CS is unaware who is the 'guilty party' at LCFC and to be honest he's hardly going to hang one of his seniors out to dry. Maybe no-one at LCFC is actually to 'blame' over the Silva situation and the 'fault' is at the FA or FIFA's end. It's easy to point he finger at Rudkin - he may or may not have overseen the key bits of the deal, I don't know - so why would you call for his sacking as a journalist if you don't know the truth? I suspect they didn't release a statement sooner because they were doing things softly, softly in the background to try and get everything in order for the appeal. It's very easy for fans to say: "Why didn't journalists ask this and that?" It's not always as simple as that. That all said, the Silva thing is a bloody mess, whoever is at fault (LCFC, FA, FIFA etc) and the player himself loses out massively. While I accept 'rules are rules' I also think someone at FA / FIFA could've easily used a bit of common sense re the 14 seconds. They wouldn't even have to have made it public. It does feel like we're being hung out to dry by FIFA, them making an example of us.
  8. Unpopular Opinions You Hold

    I like MK Dons. Not how they came about, that was totally wrong, but what they've become now. Really good club to deal with.
  9. Unpopular Opinions You Hold

  10. 2 Truths, 1 Lie

    I have no memory of this naked shenanigans. (Anyhow, anyhow... did Mark get all the 'graphs? )
  11. 2 Truths, 1 Lie

    ...and nothing has changed in 30 years mate
  12. Here comes the moan in

    If you look at the sports pages of the papers, especially the tabloids, the stories are predominantly about the biggest clubs. It might not be right but it's just kind of how it is.
  13. Here comes the moan in

    I couldn't possibly comment on this accuracy of this talkSPORT (and talkSPORT2) has exclusive EFL commentary rights so there's a lot more Championship stuff on the station now. They generally stuck to football and had some really good debates.
  14. Leicester fan taunting LFC fans with The Sun logo

    The lad in the pic is an absolute prat, nothing more. If he held up a pic of Sheffield police, who were the main baastards in 1989, would there have been any furore?
  15. Nigel Pearson working for KP again

    Two very measured, well argued posts on this page from @Rob1742 and @inckley fox. Pearson fecked up a number of things and wasn't easy to love at times but the stats suggest he did a bloody good job in the circumstances, especially when you consider the state we were in both times he arrived. But if you despise the bloke personally, and some of our fans do, then you'll never see any good in anything he did with us. Anyway he's gone, I doubt he'll ever be back, let's crack on and beat Liverpool today!
