    Bournemouth Away 15th Sept Ticket Details

    Just the six rows! What do I know haha. Yes, that was exactly the case on Sunday afternoon. That's what, 150+ seats unavailable to any buying fans for some reason...

    Bournemouth Away 15th Sept Ticket Details

    Yep all blocks open when you log on on a Sunday. Interestingly the second block in from the left (can't remember the number) had a HUGE wedge around half way up, maybe 8-10 rows completely blocked out. Not sure if a bulk buy or saved for someone, but definitely was not ordered by anyone on the away priority scheme.

    Unpopular Opinions You Hold

    Fantastic podcast host. Genuinely interested as to why people don't like him. Obviously I'm biased so I can't see it!

    Wolves Pre-Match Thread, 18th Aug

    Can't tease lazy people like me with that without any hysterical examples...

    Cardiff Vs Leicester

    How long has the Wales rugby international been scheduled for? Seems ridiculous for the PL not to take Wales rugby games into account when processing the fixture lists if the club/city don't feel they can host the two games on the same day and this has to end up moving?

    Unpopular Opinions You Hold

    Why isolate coffee, though? You can buy a decent steak from the shop and cook it at home for a fraction of the price you'd pay in a restaurant. You can buy a 2ltr bottle of Pepsi and pour a drink at home instead of paying £2 a glass elsewhere? It's not like coffee is exclusively overpriced? There are plenty of places you can get a coffee for a decent price, but it's always going to be more expensive than your home made instant or machine coffee, all food and drink is! Again, I don't get the coffee love myself, the stuff is NOT NICE, but I equally don't get the pile-on against coffee shops and what they charge. People are well aware of this; even Maccy's take the mick in their coffee advert. People vote with their feet. There's an explosion in "expensive" coffee and lots of outlets because there's a demand for coffee. If that dwindles then so will the outlets.

    But is it worse than seeing these same shops either boarded up or filled with endless charity/betting/cash4gold shops who don't have the money or desire to keep said outlets in decent condition for the streets? I'd like to think at least these places are boosting private enterprise and helping the streets they're on if nothing else, and this from someone who despises coffee!

    Two more TV games

    Five seasons now playing Arsenal away... Wednesday 7:45pm Sunday 12pm Wednesday 7:45pm Friday 8pm Monday 8pm We just can't catch a break. At least the Friday game was merging into the weekend but still, another London awayday killed stone dead.

    Danny Murphy

    Making a formal complaint about a football pundit's totally non offensive views on a player? What an absolute load of nonsense. Our fans really have inversed right up their own backsides. We wanted to join the elites, looks like some of us are up there with Man Utd et al in terms of delusion and self importance. Murphy's views are silly, ill informed and at best populist drivel, but complaining formally to the BBC just because he's said something you don't like. Something that isn't offensive, illegal or even politically charged? Behave yourself. Here was me thinking it was millennials who were the soft ones easily offended.

    What grinds my gears...

    The hold music of Santander cutting in every 20 seconds with "I'm sorry to keep you waiting," which is 100x more annoying than actually being on hold!
  14. Sorry to run into the thread like a thirsty dog, but I'd be very interested in the VHS tapes. My channel (www.youtube.com/lcfcseasonreviews) is designed to keep these tapes alive. Would be more than happy to take them off your hands

    Maguire

    God, its amazing how utterly desperate the media are for Maguire to leave Leicester. Woe betide one of England's stars of the World Cup plays for "lil' old Leicester City." They just cannot stand it. World Cup hype + English premium + need to feed the Man Utd fandom = insufferable coverage of this speculation

    Akhisarspor Match Thread

    I literally came here to say the same thing. I went to the Notts County game on Saturday and instantly regretted it. I try every season but I can't do it. I give ZERO shits about friendlies. They matter absolutely zero for the season ahead. ZERO. Still to this day I remember us losing 2-1 to Northampton Town and everyone losing their heads just days before we began a 102 point Championship title winning season They're glorified training matches that mean the square root of naff all and have no lasting impact on the season ahead. It's quite humorous how much people try to place emphasis on these games, people are so pathetic. Get a life and enjoy the heatwave everyone. In this day and age where the club have the ability to broadcast every training match before the season starts it only perpetuates the silly season of fans desperate to over analyse and take things too seriously.

    The Heat

    Got married on Friday, good lord my back was sweaty, and the journey in the wedding car was like a sauna. Should've gone with the shorts and t-shirt attire. Shirt, waistcoat and suit jacket makes a man sweat. Who'd get married in the summer

    What grinds my gears...

    We could probably all write a book about partisan politics on Twitter, but specifically those who get so hypocritical over local election results. Their party does well in a local election, vote count ticks up, swing to them and they're giving it the big'un, waving their metaphorical willies at how THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN. Their party does badly in a local election, vote count down, swing away from them and they're on the defensive. Local politics isn't representative, look at the turnout, still years from an election, THE PEOPLE WILL CHANGE THEIR MINDS. I do find it slightly funny, the gall and lack of self awareness, but mainly quite annoying as this is what we have to deal with.

    What grinds my gears...

    Local journalism, the last bastion of 'free speech' and holding local authorities to account, which is essentially as in the clickbait gutter as the national titles. Specifically the Leicester Mercury and their willful misrepresentation on Facebook of an article they wrote yesterday. The article was actually quite balanced, but the whole premise of the FB headline was to whip people into a frenzy, bear-baiting style. It's very frustrating. (Yes, it's been going on for years, but this article in question just pushed me over the edge into the GmG thread!)

    Basics innit. Allison goes for £67m, so the asking price to Roma is £67m. Cheers Thanks Easy

    What grinds my gears...

    I genuinely haven't watched Mock the Week for years. It always came across as so forced and like others have mentioned, too many unknowns who really weren't funny. Like HIGNFY, some guests would make minimal contribution with a bit of canned laughter. It felt worse on MtW because when they did the 'jump in on the mic' style comedy they'd really be shown up for how utterly turgid they are. If you like Widdicombe I'd recommend his 90's football podcast, which is insanely good. His humour (along with his co-presenters) on their is just brilliant.

    Man United (A) - Friday 10th August 8pm

    I know they're barmy times, and hindsight is a wonderful thing, but it is a Friday afternoon where the M1, A50 and M6 need to be used. They might be there by 5pm but it only takes one accident on one of those arteries and suddenly you're in trouble, (Still agree broadly about the fact it's so early, mind!)

    Man United (A) - Friday 10th August 8pm

    Yeah I experienced this too. Says I have 308 points on my dashboard but I should have 358. Emailed them earlier and got a reply on something completely different! But glad to know they're sorting it out.

    Losing an interest in football

    I promised myself I was going to cut back on the away games last season, ended up missing only one game Promising myself the same thing this season. If it's an away game that doesn't have much riding on it in the league and on TV I won't go... we'll see if I keep that promise to myself. The comment above is right, it's an addiction. But I'll be honest regular football is just dull as dishwater now. If it's not a "big game" (we can debate the definitions!) then I'm not interested in watching it tbh.
