    James Maddison Confirmed

    There’s an ITK on here, Adamsomeone?, who called this, so I put money on it. Thank you to you sir! Shame me about the other money I put on BlackJack at the same time. One never learns!

    Jack Grealish

    Grealish is a David Speedie kind of character. You hate him when he pays for someone else, but love him when he plays for you. I'd definitely take Grealish. Would prefer Maddison though.

    Best Puma kit?

    Difficult call. The 2014/15 kit is a thing of beauty, but I narrowly went with 2016/17 which looks even better, though I find it a bit heavy. I wore our red kit to the Liverpool v Madrid game in a London pub in a sign of red solidarity for the night. It’s got Cambiasso’s name and number on the back. One guy stopped me and said, ‘what a ****ing player he was for you even though his legs had gone!’ He wasn’t wrong!

    Danny Mills’ Vendetta against Vardy: Part 12

    Dead on. I watched a Youtube video yesterday about non-league footballers who've made it and Steve Walsh is on it talking about the impact Kevin Phillips has had on Vardy, a process that wasn't without frustration apparently. Vardy did used to love smashing it actually, but Phillips drummed into him that many of his goals were first time passes into the net. It was an interesting video actually with players talking about how each league is like a new mountain with regard to the the different levels of technique required to scale each peak. Vardy himself in another video talks about how it took him a season to adapt to the Championship and then another season to adapt to the Premier League. seems like Phillips might have been a key factor in Vardy's development.

    Because we're a frothing at the mouth rabid bunch who react first and do logic later. Some of us not even the latter!

    Premier League Accounts: Leicester in good shape

    Well, of course. But these accounts have only just been filed. So it’s bang up to date in that sense. Palace were always a similar club in stature to us. Look where they are. They haven’t even filed their accounts for the same period.

  8. Apologies if this has been posted elsewhere. I couldn't find it after a quick search. Our finances make for an interesting read: https://www.theguardian.com/football/2018/jun/06/premier-league-finances-club-guide-2016-17 Interesting to read about the other clubs too. We're in good nick!

    Notts County fan in peace

    I seem to have a memory of being at a Leicester v Notts County match when Shilton was in goal against us. Rumour had it that he was having an affair with a woman called Tina. Every goal kick he took we substituted the usual 'You're shit' to 'Ti-na-arrrrghhhh'.

    Jack Grealish

    I’d sign Grealish. But I suspect Pearson would not have. That probably says everything right there!

    James Maddison

    Me too. Keeping my fingers crossed that Foxestalk doesn't have any 'tree shaking' commercial deal in place with any bookie!

    Villa v Fulham

    I selfishly want Fulham to win as I hear their stadium is worth a visit and it's an easy away day for me to get to. Was the last time we played them THAT League Cup game?
  13. It must have been a very temporary thing. When I tried it again just a few minutes afterwards I got the same message as you see now. There looked to be about a few hundred seats available. I’m just a member too. I thought I was about to get very lucky! Not so.
  14. Thought my luck was in a moment ago. I clicked on 'Buy new season ticket' and you can see all the seats which are free and even put them in the shopping cart. Alas, that's all you can do though!
