    What on the roads has annoyed you today?

    Cutting corners at junctions blindly is really winding me up at the moment. No clue what's coming but be half way over on my side of the road anyway, that's okay.

    December and January TV Fixtures announced

    Delighted Everton is on TV. Terrible view, so much more convenient it being live.
  4. It's a joke isn't it. The one thing that bugs me most is the historical aspect. In years to come people will read the reference books, look back on Wikipedia or a football website and see that there was an official attendance of 55,000 for games where there were literally thousands of empty seats. It's rewriting history to make yourself look good. A plague on any club who does it.

    How Was Your Day?

    It's me birthday today, but suffering twice briefly today with antibiotic side effects of nausea the doc told me I'd experience. Went to a walk in centre on Sunday due to a MAN PROBLEM which worried me so got checked out. Turns out it's a common issue but because men don't talk about it, it wasn't something I'd ever heard of!

    Arsenal away next😳

    Can't be bothered with the fact this is away on a Monday so missing this, which means we're going to tear them up and win 3-0.

    Foxestalk quizzes

    Ah, sorry, can't see it in my list under Sport Quizzes. Not sure why and feel thick not seeing it, but it might be best for Admin to open to save my technological blushes.

    Foxestalk quizzes

    Is this the 02/03 one I did a while ago? I can't seem to find trace of that within any dashboard or option? It might be me being dense, but genuinely can't find trace of it?

    LCFC Adidas Adult's Stadium Parka

    I think it's fair to say as aesthetic as some of the stuff is, it is completely ruined by the King Power logo on the back, making you look more like an employee on a shift than anything else.
  12. 2013/14 was an incredible season never to be forgotten. Faded because of two years later, sure, but man, like others have said this season was all about the utter dominance we had. I remember the fury when the team was announced before the opening game against Boro, I remember the fury when we were 1-0 down at half time against Boro. And then. And then... The crazy 5-3 v Bolton, demolishing Derby 4-1 and then sneaking a last minute winner away at Leeds. The squirrel at QPR, Mahrez smashing his first goal in against Blackpool, the last minute Schmeichel goal-but-not-officially-his-goal and the pitch invasion on the last day against Doncaster. Football was fun again. The heartache of previous seasons was back and I guess for many the joy we all felt in 08/09 had returned and this time we made it back to the PL. Those memories are so burned into me just as much as the endless list of moments from April-May 2015 and then August 2015-May 2016.

    New training ground announced

    If it's recommended for approval it's likely going to fly through committee with no complaints. Nimbys oppose all sorts and any application. This could be us, the rugby team or the FA putting this application in. It's change, and people hate change. Just remember if the Planning Committee do refuse it, the club will immediately lodge an appeal with the Planning Inspectorate and, if the councillors have refused it on non-material grounds, the appeal will win and leave the Council picking up a bill for tens of thousands in the appeal. All Cllrs on a planning committee are trained and educated in things like this. Look at the Hinckley/Bosworth battlefield site decision. This was approved because it met all the material and planning obligations despite lots of opposition. Lots of opposition doesn't mean it's not a good design or application fulfilling all the requirements. the committee members are well aware refusing an application has to be done for solid reasons with a legal basis or based on that area's Local Plan. One way or another we're getting that approval, so I really wouldn't worry one iota.

    What grinds my gears...

    Much applause for this rant. Very pertinent. I had a rave about the dropping standards of the BBC recently, an organisation that should hold its head high above the parapet and retain some sort of integrity with its news output, even online. But no, their editors and managers are just has hungry to chase those clicks, stir up that controversy and drive traffic to the website, and they're more than happy to ruin/tarnish lives and diminish their standards of news to do it. It's shameful and its a travesty that we're heading this way. Get your phone out, find something you're not happy with, film or snap it and submit it to a national news outlet. If the editor thinks it'll split opinion straight down the middle and cause 2,000 comments on Facebook about who was right and who was wrong, BANG, you've got your five minutes of fame.

    Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    Change them from Greenpeace activists to Tommy Robinson and his vile crew climbing on lorries in a 100hr protest over something to do with their racist views and breaking the same laws and with EXACTLY the same actions these guys did. It once again highlights both the extreme left and extreme right's hypocrisy over laws. You get what you deserve until it's you that's suffering; that's when the law is wrong. Mass protests must commence. I'd have more respect if the people behind this protest came out and said it was worth it for the cause, not protesting at a jail sentence for their breaking of the law. Baffling yet unsurprising.

    Carabao Cup Fourth Round draw. At home to Soton.

    Sorry to get all preachy, but we are an established Premier League team and former PL champions. There are no glamorous away trips domestically for us now. We're not in League One, we've not been out of the top flight for a decade. This is normal. Any away tie to a Premier League club, any Premier League club, should be run-of-the-mill and mundane. The only glamour left for us are top European teams away in competitive competition.

    Fans Who Leave Games Early

    Exactly this. There's an awful lot of unnecessary willy waving going on in this thread. "I NEVER LEAVE EARLY" "LAST ONE OUT THE STADIUM ME" Just smacks of that superiority you get from fans who think they're better because they attend more games. It's never, ever going to stop, and it's quite bizarre people think it should like being a fan and attending is some kind of job. People leave early, some for inexplicable reasons (to me), but they do and they always will. Just like the myth that Filbert Street was 90 minutes of cacophonous noise, people seem to be under some kind of impression that fans leaving early is a new phenomenon, when in fact it's been happening for decades. Look at the footage from previous years. Games winding down and what do you know, people have left early.

    What grinds my gears...

    This is an underrated grind, anything with an "official in-house commentator" or something that has been retrospectively dubbed over is horrific. It's sanitised and lacks any sort of passion or authenticity. That being said, if we ever employ anyone like Paul Rice (RIP) the guy who used to to Tranmere's club commentary, I'll listen to every minute.

    Do you remember...

    I have a version of the game with no commentary. I must spend some time splitting the third and fourth goal clips together. Noise is insane when there's no one jabbering over the moment.

    Player Arrival Time - Kids Autographs

    Do people still do autographs? I never really got the attraction of getting a signature that's basically illegible to everyone but you who witnessed it being signed, but I thought selfies had replaced signing a programme/flag/shirt etc. There's something about getting autographs that seems so archaic now! Though that's better than holding a sign begging for a player's shirt so go for it.

    UEFA Champions League 2018/19

    Dunno, but if we're going by Pep's history at Barcelona and Bayern, he doesn't have much history in things going awry or players ticking off from his ideas
