  1. Yeah I think people don't seem to realise football clubs are not public bodies and they're not publically owned, as Finn eluded to. This is about private businesses preventing associated employees of another private entity onto their land after making up lies, and following the will of their customers. Some of you are making out like this is the start of a great freedom of speech repression, when it's just stopping someone coming on privately owned land...
  2. History will be very kind to Claudio, I know that sounds obvious, but there's so much swirling around even now. I genuinely think there's something in the reaction of other fans and the media that makes us shine a spotlight on his eventual failures. Usually a manager is sacked and everyone brushes it off; "well they were terrible, no surprise." This time we've had to continually highlight and defend this decision. Explicitly pointing people in the direction of how badly and how disastrous the last few months were. Surely, the more you highlight something the more it resonates with people. The media appearances won't help fans opinions, even if it is a small comment or inference, and especially as it comes around the time we have been knocked out of Europe and are still looking for those final few points to fully confirm survival. In 3-5 years time when it's all blown over I think rash comments in this thread, on social media, in the media will be ancient history and his time will be looked back on as misty-eyed and the triumphant, amazing and incredible success it was. Hopefully we'll also have the context of the preceding years which helped 16-16. But for now, with the way it ended and as above, there's always going to be bite, bitterness and some comments I suspect people, deep down, don't really mean?
  3. It's not a case of who will win, but by how much the Conservatives win by really. The most interesting thing will be to see the majority they get. I'm going a majority of 137.
  4. No all yellows are wiped after this game, so any booking tomorrow for either would affect a semi final first leg, but they changed the rules to stop people from getting suspended from the final on bookings only
  5. Referee for tomorrow is Gianluca Rocchi, with this his fifth European game of the season. His record of matches reffed this season seems to suggest he loves a yellow card...
  6. I feel like @Bluetintedspecs has spent more time moaning about people moaning about the non tifo than there have been posts moaning about the non tifo? We get it mate
  7. We gonna have two pages of people trying to gee other people up on a forum for a UCL match like it'll make a difference? The atmosphere will be extraordinary as long as we're in it (i/e the start of the game and as long as it stays 0-0 or within one or two goals.) If Atleti kill the game the atmosphere will be stone dead. I can't wait for the buzz and what we're going to witness, it'll be electric.
  8. For anyone who hasn't had the chance to see this: Part I (Intro & Discussion) Part II (Last season's analysis)
  9. I'm genuinely glad people are finding this good. I definitely needed some reassurance that my time and effort weren't wasted! Just to add, if anyone does have any old tapes of LCFC-related programmes that aren't up on here, do let me know. I'd love to be able to rip them and get them onto YouTube for everyone to enjoy. Some just aren't available and others are bloody expensive!
  10. Not one for plugging but I thought there was no better place to put this. People may or may not have come across this channel. I've basically uploaded my back catalogue of Leicester VHS and DVDs. I'm really hoping to add to the collection as old tapes become available if the price is right on the likes of Amazon/eBay etc. There are at least several I want to add to the channel! Enjoy!

  11. There's the very possible scenario where one of our games is moved for TV and scheduled on the same day as said Cup final. Say we're at home to someone like Everton on Sky and then our U-23s are playing MK Dons in the final at the same time. Interesting to see what people's answers would change to...
  12. I am bemused that anyone could begrudge us making sure that goals are correctly awarded/disallowed in the sport. Sorry to bring money into this, too, but some goals and some matches are the difference of tens (if not hundreds) of millions of pounds. Those decisions need to be right.
  13. Do you remember when we all loved Cheltenham because they did the conga in the away end?
  14. Other than your attempt to make this political, I'd be interested to know your source for this. Nothing in the regulations states that UEFA set a minimum pricing structure. The only thing about home tickets it mentions is that "Each club retains its receipts from the sale of match tickets and bears all its expenses." Those regulations talk about everything, from accommodating the Venue Co-ordinator to how printed match tickets must be printed, and yet it doesn't say anything about minimum pricing? That's very strange. The club are just naturally cashing in on their success. Of course any credible sources to the contrary are keenly sought, but I very much doubt at this stage UEFA insist on certain pricing. Indeed, for Man City's game against Monchengladbach, season ticket holder's prices started at just £15 and £17.50 for non-season ticket holders. Amazingly, the price rocketed for the game against Barcelona before dropping to £25 upwards for Celtic.
  15. Missed one at Villa away as well last season, didn't we? If we'd scored against Bournemouth and Villa we'd have won the league miles earlier than we did...
