  1. I believe the government are moving as fast as they can with the vaccine so we can have a proper send off for Fuchs, and a nightmarish thought , a guard of honour for new champions Tottenham! if the vaccine roles out ok I reckon we’ll be back to or close to normal by May bank holiday 2021. Obviously a lot can change but that seems a reasonable scenario.
  2. Given the Spurs game is 23rd May, I’d say there’s a good chance we will have at least 25%. Can’t see away fans being allowed back though till 22/23 season
  3. The enjoyment of meeting mates at pub before the game, nowadays with kids in tow, still get the buzz walking towards the ground, up the steps to my seat, speaking to people I only speak to 19 times a year plus cup games! And with Leicester not knowing what to expect. I don’t watch that many live games in the telly , a friend reckons those who attend live games have probably found this whole period a lot harder than what you’d call armchair fans and I think there is a lot of truth in that. Nowadays I just want us to maintain our status and not rest on our laurels and end up being
  4. Poor Everton fans, after 25 years of nothingness they look as though they have a decent team and they can’t see them live. It’d have killed me if this has happened to us in 15/16!
  5. Martin Tyler and Jamie Carragher are appalling together, without Gary Neville it’s just a rubbish combo
  6. Given how long he has been here if Top had insisted he stayed I doubt BR would have had much choice but to have kept him or at least move him somewhere within the club structure.
  7. They should have refreshed the soccer Saturday line up a couple of years ago , they were all a bit too comfortable. Getting rid of 3 in one go is a tad harsh though. Lose Stelling and it’ll lose its heartbeat.
  8. I’ll pay the £70 just to guarantee my season ticket for 21/22 season. Can’t imagine I’ll enter any ballot while it’s just 25% or whatever capacity. Would have preferred what Man City are doing. Can’t see full capacity stadiums till the spring in all honesty, pretty certain the whole season will see no away fans. Might indulge a local non league team as I’d imagine it’ll be a lot easier to attend.

  10. The last few years , say since 2015 all the talk has been of arsenal being poor and Spurs being the top dog in north London. undoubtedly Arsenal have been poor but they have still won 2 FA Cups, whilst Spurs managed 13 minutes on top of the premier league.
  11. Be interesting how we voted , if I was a betting man I’d say we’d have voted for it, I’m sure we’ve tended to vote with the big clubs on stuff.
  12. I think as it stands at the moment I’d opt out of next season as long as my season ticket is guaranteed for 2021/22. As well as the weirdness of being in a quarter full stadium it would not be a surprise if all the pubs within a certain radius of the ground (ie local hero, counting house) had to also be shut on match days. That’s part of the day for me, catch up with mates for a couple of hours then the walk down to the stadium. As we’ve seen with the postponement of relaxation measures by Boris yesterday I can see attendance at sport events being put back till the spring if they are
  13. At least ours has only been a slow motion car crash!
  14. Let’s hope we really are back in October(partial) and fully in November. That said, I’d be astonished if we bin social distancing in November that Boris suggested just as the flu season kicks in.
  15. Something positive out of today then
  16. Good old BT on the ball ‘good news for Nigel Pearson as hell tucks into his Sunday lunch’ after Southampton score!
  17. They decide after game 37, assume Sky get first pick. All depends which games have something riding on it. I’d imagine our game will be first pick.
  18. Although a bit worried about the strength of our defence , if our mentality is right we may spring a surprise. The Sheff Utd game will hopefully be seen as a springboard to move us forward rather than just a one off decent performance. I’m going for a spirited 2-1 away win.
  19. Can’t imagine they’ll be away fans for the entirety next season. I’m not that comfortable going back to KP before the winter but would prefer to wait till the spring by which time any second wave should hopefully have passed plus also we’ll have a lot better understanding than now about this virus. The club may have to ask all 23000 of us season ticket holders if we want to return a) ASAP b) 2021 or c) skip the entire season but still keep season ticket for 2021/22 season. Nightmare to deal with.
  20. Hull City 5 Leicester City 2 1989 I think , On a Friday night in the Pleat years, away fans cheering their goals and Saint and Greavsie taking the piss the next day.
  21. I just hope there is a reaction of some kind in Thursday, if Madders and Chilwell are still out plus possibly no Albrighton it could be a tough night. The very least we’ll have to match United’s effort which we know will be full on.
  22. Is it a bit of a con? Of course, but the reality is we should not have been relying on a judgement like this given where we were a few weeks ago. In fact if we were still a clear 3rd with CL guaranteed I imagine a few on here would have been laughing as it would mean either Chelsea or Man Utd missing out. The performance last night was so bad last night it merited us being dumped in the Checkatrade cup , or whatever it’s called now, rather than the champions league.
  23. What we all think is irrelevant, Kuhn Top will know what is going on, his big challenge is does he trust Rodgers with a big transfer budget in the summer window. Wasn’t a question a few weeks ago, and still might not be in Tops mind but we’ll see, still has enough credit in the bank albeit depleting
  24. Unless Nacho is injured BR really needs to explain his thinking, ridiculous
