  1. I recall sitting watching us lose at home to Colchester in our championship relegation season. It wasn’t just losing football - it was hopeless, insipid, disorganised and just awful to watch, boos through the game boos at the end. An incapable squad and incapable manager. Maybe these things are easily forgotten - but a bad game against Southampton where we have periods of the game where we might have got a draw or more, we have an exciting squad and are playing for 7/8 position in the premier league. Its not not even a comparison to make - yes neither are much fun on the day but be grateful for what we have. This era of the club won’t last forever.

    Man City H Match Thread

    Quietly optimistic. Man City need this win BADLY so they’ll go for it. Expect us to get them on the break in a high scoring game. 3-3

    Watford post-match 2-0 Puel out chit-chat

    I’m sure the usual bunch will be on here to have a moan about something or another, but to be 7th after probably the most emotional month in most of the players’ and staff’s lives is testament to them all. Onwards and upwards.

    Brighton Match Thread

    Kelechi must be completely out of favour, as he is fit, right? I love Shinki, hope he shines today up front with Gray.
  6. Christ - this is amazing really. I’m sure it’ll be back to the usual rivalries soon but I’ve never seen anything like it.

    A statue of Vichai

    I love all these ideas, but do think it would be best if the club co-ordinate them, which will all happen in due course. For the people of Leicester to invest back into a charity or need in Thailand is a really excellent idea and I think embodies the spirit of Vichai more than a statue. I think there will be a statue commissioned by the club. Hopefully not by the same guy who did the Ronaldo one!

    That is absolutely brilliant
  9. I’m not sure if this warrants its own thread but I just want to say how great this forum has been over the past few days. Ive been on here for 12 years, met loads of friends over the years and at times we might all get on each other’s backs a bit, but supporting from afar up in Edinburgh this is where I come for my Leicester news and community. I was on here the minute the crash thread went up, and have followed it along with you with horror and grief like you all. The heartbreak is real, and although I can’t be at the ground I’ve felt close to it all thanks to this place. Thank you @Mark and thank you all of you for making this a place where we can express how we feel about all of this. Almost no clubs have a fans forum that come close to this.

    Saturday 10th November- Walk for Vichai

    Amazing, hope it goes ahead.

    Club’s Commemoration.

    That was wonderfully done and glad it was behind closed doors. The whole squad looks distraught no idea how we can play this weekend.

    No, it’s a very important issue to raise. I just thought it was the wrong place to put it in the Vichai thread where people are just pouring out grief.

    Yes I would have thought so

    Guys or mods can you split this into a separate thread. Don’t want to ruin this one.
  15. Not sure if @Fez of Mahrez is around on here, but an excellent piece. Saying that Vichai was a custodian of the club really hit the nail on the head for me.
