  1. I'm not convinced that all of the hoards of people surrounding Beaumont Leys Tesco this morning were NHS workers. Read so many incidents elsewhere of queues being full of NHS workers as well as the general public. As usual there appears to be swarms of selfish bastards everywhere. The wife attempted to go this morning, as she works for the NHS but saw the queues and came back home. My family is in a fortunate position that despite the number of hours my wife works, I'm working from home so I can help with the shopping. Same can't be said for every person in the NHS. I'd probably re-think about what's fair and not fair, when you consider the selfish behaviour of so many people in this country. I certainly don't begrudge any of those hard working NHS folk an hour a week to do their shop.
  2. Glad to be through but another dreadful performance. Usually accept a bit of a shithouse win but considering recent performances and results, I hoped for better.
  3. A simple way would be to cut back gradually on the bad food that you eat. If you have two takeaways a week, just have the one. If you drink twice a week, just drink the once. Also look at healthier alternatives. If you drink full fat coke, have diet. Simple things like that. Similar to crash diets, if you cut out all the nice foods that you like, it becomes easier to completely fall off the wagon. I think the technical term is 'flexible dieting.' As soon as you see results, it becomes a habit.
  4. Following on from what you have written here - Anyone looking to lose or gain weight should spend at the very least working out what I've highlighted in bold above. You should eat in what's called a maintenance. The require calories to sustain your current weight. From then onwards I'd advise adding or taking off 50cals per week, depending on your goals. This is a steady and healthy way managing your weight. This way it's also easy to manage. If your energy levels become particuarly low, you can slowly increase your calories. Gaining weight has never been too much of a problem for me but I can speak from experience regarding cutting weight and maintaining for weight lifting competitions. Being in a calorie deficit isn't fun and is hard work but you also want to make it sustainable. These crash diets, silly shakes and herbal teas are a load of bollocks. Avoid at all costs. Weight loss or gain is just simple maths. You can jump in even deeper regarding macro nutrients once you understand the basics of calories.
  5. Slightly off topic but top two aside, the quality in Premier League has been pretty average. I don't think the people of FT are quick to say our young players are great however I do believe that they are afforded more time before being slated. The same can be said for all clubs. Nothing better than having a good young player coming from the youth system. I honestly believe his finishing is down to confidence rather than ability. Bit of an extreme but look at what good coaching has done for someone like Sterling. He couldnt hit a barn door (no pun intended). He does need to step up soon, I do agree. However he does have 3 in 3 (I think) but should have more. I must admit I thought Schlupp was destined for the Championship.
  6. One attribute that helps make a top player stand out from an average, is being able to handle pressure and show confidence during tricky situations. BR has spoken to the media earlier on this season regarding Barnes showing a bit more arrogance/confidence. Time will tell whether this will happen with Barnes but he has all the attributes to be a top player and I am excited to watch him develop. Some players aren't natural finishers but with Barnes we have seen with some of the goals he scored in the Championship, that he can finish. He should have scored again yesterday but even the best miss chances. I personally have seen an improvement in his all round game, which includes his tracking back. He is frustrating at times but he's still relatively young and inexperienced. My worry is Barnes, similar to Chilwell, will face unnecessary criticism from the fans when in reality they are both good, young footballers.
  7. I don't think any Leicester fan needs to overate Liverpool. The stats back up how amazing Liverpool have been for the last season and a half. In any normal season, they would have walked to the title last year but they were up against a margainly better Man City team. As for beating teams they are expected to beat; I've also seen people arguing that we have beat teams we should be beating in our 8 match winning run. Despite sounding negative, I will still continuing dreaming that we can win it again. This next month is crucial. If Liverpool get through it unscathed, I just can't see them dropping enough points..
  8. Mate, that's pretty horrific. I do commend you for your enthusiasm and your confidence.
  9. Both. We go out to win all competitions. We can make use of our squad for cup competitions but not wholesale changes, which we have done in previous seasons. Personally I would get more joy from winning the FA Cup than a 4th place finish. So to answer you question, if you gave me the FA Cup and a 5th place finish, I'd snap your hands off.
  10. Disagree. We should go out and win everything we can. A cup run shouldn't de-rail our chances of top 4.
  11. He has got a lot worse since Rodgers became manager. With how we are playing currently, the wide men become narrow when we attack, with the expectation of the full backs pushing on. This appears to be highlighting the flaws in his game. Having Albrighton, who although cuts inside, is a natural winger, certainly helped him mask these flaws. Those who dont believe Chilwells passing and crossing ability is a big deal are naive. Its a crucial part of how we play in this current setup. His place in the team should be under pressure..
  12. After we have a definitive conclusion on this subject, may I suggest the following topic to be discussed: - Adults using the clappers - Adults wearing football tops
  13. Far too loud but at least it drowned out the sounds of grown men banging their clapper to the tune of various shite songs.
  14. Length of contracts and wages I'd imagine. I don't even know what Slimani is on but I can guarantee any club who would be interested, won't match his wages.
