    I was at that one. Played at the Baseball Ground.


    The match was forced to be replayed behind closed doors at Highfield Road so I hope nobody will claim to have been at that one.

    I was in the crush behind the goal and listened to the reply in school so it must have been replayed on a school day afternoon.

    This was a special night and the atmosphere was electric- City v Cambridge at Filbo back in 1992, play off semi final second leg.  The beginning of a magical period of ups and downs- seven Wembley trips in nine years followed this night




    Yes I was in the double decker and thought it was going to collapse when the 3rd went in and we knew we were going to Wembley for the first time in 23 years.

    I was there


    Fulham away in April 1983. It was still 3 up 3 down in those days, no play-offs and with 3 or 4 games left it was a two horse race between us and Fulham to claim the last promotion place. It was a lovely spring afternoon and we took about 10,000 away supporters to the game. We won 1-0 with Ian Wilson scoring late in the 2nd half in front of the packed away end and it was the crucial result that season.

    Yes 3 points for a win had only recently been brought in and so this was one of the first 6 pointers. Scrappy game if I remember rightly and I was right in line with Ian Wilson’s shot which seemed to bobble in past the diving Gerry Peyton. Huge celebrations after the game and a mini riot with Chelsea on the road outside.

    I was there at that one. My clothes are still a little damp to this day.

    I was working on the bins at the time and made myself a bin bag suit. I was still absolutely drenched and didnt care a jot. The 2 celebrations were absolute bedlam and you had to be there because the atmosphere was very special as a whole generation of fans smelt a modicum of success for the very first time. ZDS Northern Division Semi Final I think it was.

    Ipswich at home in 2012. Not remembered too much really but the first time we'd scored 6 in a league match for over 25 years I believe.

    Good call. I was going through a really tough time personally and that win lit up a very bleak time of my life. I was only able to go last minute and ended up doing 6 Poznańs in K block. Leicester definitely made me happy in those 2 hours when skys were grey.

    Pleased for her to be honest. I don't really care about what Mrs Vardy gets up to, I don't even care whether she leaked stuff or not. Rooney straight out accusing her in public without much notice was extremely irresponsible and lead to a heavily pregnant woman being abused and threatened on social media. 

    Also better for our Jamie

    Leicester 5 v Shrewsbury 2 F.A. Cup 5th round  1986 we had 3 different keepers also F.A cup Leicester v Norwich the Keith Weller white tights match 

    Don't mean to be pedantic but it was 1982 - My first time in Pen 3! 

  8. The Man U 5-3 and Seville game were both incredible. I looked around at the end and grown men were visibly emotional. There’s been so many great games over the years the club has provided immense joy - there’s hardly been a dull moment.

    I don't know why the first penalty is controversial and why they still talks about that in DM ? The ball was deviated by Wolve's defender hand so whether it was non intentional or not the referee should reward a penalty.

    We've had these sort of penalties given against us for years - I seem to remember a couple of dodgy handball penalties at Liverpool given against Wes and Danny Simpson about 5 years ago now - There was no fuss made then.

    It's like supporting a really good team.

    Quality performance that. 


    Yes it does feel strange. Players coming in and doing a great job. Flexibility of formation. Real desire and will to win - I'm starting to think that last seasons collapse has really galvanised the squad and Brendan appears to be much more flexible. 


    Hate to say (as I'm a known jinx) it but we look the absolute business at times.
