  1. Ticket arrangements for Chelsea FA game (not ideal)

    okay mate, we believe you
  2. No Questions Asked Quiz

    I just completed this quiz. My Score 30/100 My Time 145 seconds  
  3. Build up film before games.

    Does it? I thought the pre-match stuff lasts as long as you're in your seat before the match kicks off? If you think it goes on for too long you could try entering the stadium closer to kick-off?
  4. Ticket arrangements for Chelsea FA game (not ideal)

    Unlikely to be a Saturday night... let's look at the scenarios here (Until inevitably in 30 minutes it's picked for a Saturday night) - The match is now the best of the four - BBC have the first pick for TV - BBC are unlikely to bump their marquee primetime night of the week for football - Friday night, Sunday 4pm and Monday night are the BBC's prime slots for their best FA Cup Matches - With Friday and Monday expunged, that leaves Sunday 4pm - I'm desperately clutching at straws cause I really need the match to not be on a Saturday - BT Sport would love a Liverpool/Man Utd double on their channel on a Saturday, so United in the 7:45 slot becomes a possibility The only way we're not the first pick is if BBC take Man Utd v Brighton for the plastic ratings. If that happens then BT on the Saturday evening comes into play.
  5. Championship 2017/18

    Absolutely this. His next club move was going to make or break him. He is a rubbish club manager and got lucky in one tournament with some fantastic players galvanising an otherwise average team to the semis. Why he picked Sunderland I don't know, but I guess he had a lot of confidence from his spell as Wales.
  6. Leicester City-Champions Party

    YouTube naturally prevents me from uploading anything with PL content, but they're a great set of programmes!
  7. Leicester City-Champions Party

    Wasn't this one by any chance, was it? EDIT: Was always disappointed I could never get the local BBC and ITV stuff in HD, but I guess the fact they devoted so much air time to us was treat enough. Especially their main Central News and EMT shows at half six. Both did shows entirely dedicated to the title win.
  8. Ticket arrangements for Chelsea FA game (not ideal)

    Waa waa waa, I might not get a ticket to a big match at home. It really is the back end of 15/16 and the Champions League matches once again, isn't it? What a surprise Cry me a river

  10. FA cup quater final draw 7.45pm UK time

    at people actually thinking the FA Cup draw is fixed. Good lord we're getting all conspiratorial in the modern age, aren't we?
  11. FA cup quater final draw 7.45pm UK time

    Not looked so don't know if mentioned. No ties can be on a Monday night, apparently. It's part of FIFA's international window so it's off limits for domestic games. Either be a Saturday or Sunday. Won't be BT on the Saturday evening as they have a PL game scheduled. Could be Saturday night or lunch, but BBC might not want the lunchtime slot as it competes with the final day of six nations. Basically there are a lorry load of TV permutations and we'll have to sit tight!
  12. What grinds my gears...

    Nottingham Ikea is crap at the minute while they're redoing their food area. Avoid.
  13. What on the roads has annoyed you today?

    Is that the southbound or northbound one? They're equally as bad. Southbound is right, really big slope and when I had a 1.0 it was a struggle, almost embarrassment for the poor cars behind me. Northbound is so short and doesn't have much lead-in, meaning it can be really hairy at times, too!
  14. Champions League 2017/18

    To be fair to Spurs, as much as I dislike them, you can't argue with essentially pinning Juventus in for the majority of the match and getting that result, even if Higuain did offer it to them on a platter with a crap second penalty. In terms of English teams in the UCL... I can't suspend my dislike of teams just because they're playing foreign opposition. I do want to see Man City do well, mainly because I want to see them against the very elite. I'd like to watch them play PSG/Madrid, Barcelona. It'd be a blockbuster tie. I'd actually love them all to progress because country protection ends in the next round, so to see a potential Man Utd/Man City, Spurs/Chelsea set of QFs. The atmospheres would be incredible, the ties intriguing. All English knockouts in Europe tend to be amazing affairs.
  15. Friday night

    Does that mean we'll have similar difficulty shifting Wembley tickets if we make it to the semi-final and final?
  16. Only six weeks after the season ended, I've finally decided to make my own season review based on the footage I've collected over the year. I'm uploading it month-by-month because it's easier for me to edit, and if it's an absolute sack of crap then I'm not wasting my time! It's available below on Google Drive, because uploading it elsewhere would probably see it deleted instantly... LCFC Season Review - August LCFC Season Review - September LCFC Season Review - October LCFC Season Review - November LCFC Season Review - December Feedback is appreciated, but don't be too harsh, I'm a very amateur video editor! (720p is probably still processing at the time of posting, it will be in HD quality!)
  17. Premier League, 2017-2018 Season Thread

    Is it just me in doom monger post thrashing self pity, or are we absolutely 100% still in danger. Someone said above about teams getting wins out of nowhere, and now we're just nine points from the bottom three. Of course we could win the next three and I'll be told to calm the heck down, but if we continue like we did against Everton and Swansea, I'd get uncomfortable...
  18. What grinds my gears...

    Can I just argue slightly that this isn't just limited to Kylie Jenner or other attention hungry celebrities, but also to quite a lot of social-media obsessed people, who post every bleeding update, pre and post, with no other expectation that praise or adulation from their following. There really are only so many pictures of a baby you can take before they become boring, especially when babies all look exactly the same!
  19. Manchester City (A)..pre match thread.

    Still unsure as to why I've managed to talk myself into going to this game. Not sure if it's the 0.01% glimmer of us winning, or the thought we might not be 1-0 down after 4 minutes?
  20. Premier League, 2017-2018 Season Thread

    Hahaha as if the above post think Lamela's was a dive. Ok mate. My only theory on why Moss gave the pen after asking Atkinson was that he realised TV shouldn't influence decisions at the moment? No idea why he said it in the case but still, the only explanation I can come up with. As aggrieved as Klopp it's fantastic cover for what was a dreadful second half performance from Liverpool. Spurs upped the game massively and Liverpool just couldn't cope. And even if you do go 2-1 up in the 90th minute, you should be able to see the game out without your defender flailing his leg and walloping someone in the box for a second penalty.

  22. Smuts' NFL Thread

    Took the morning off work to watch this. Holy shit. What a game. Eagles were brilliant.
  23. Fousseni Diabaté

    Yeah like those above, looks very raw, but the raw Diabate seems full of talent for his age and experience so far. Just need to get some coaching and protein shakes into him and he'll be stellar. Hope we've got a £95m release clause on him
  24. Well you don't support the club, do you? You're wishing injury on an asset which by the way has helped to bring the club you so claim to support such joy over the last 2 1/2 years. Your response is something I'd expect of a petulant child. You seriously need to grow up and reevaluate your life priorities by saying another human being should get injured. Such a pathetic man. Calm down or step away from they keyboard for a few hours. No issue with you being angry, no issue with you thinking about the perspective of this situation, but two broken legs? Really? Really?
  25. You are not a supporter of this club. You cannot have an ounce of support for a club when you're wishing severe, potentially life-changing injuries on one of our players. I don't care if he's been to training today, not been or is sitting in the Etihad reception. Don't say such ridiculous, disgusting crap like this. Shameful
