  1. The "do they mean us?" thread

    Absolutely. Plenty of plaudits came our way through gritted teeth when we won it.
  2. The "do they mean us?" thread

    Another 'journalist' telling us that we're delusional for not wanted to get relegated. It's almost as though they don't realise that 7th-17th positions exist, and we're somehow expecting to jump from 18th to 4th. And people saying 'a club like Leicester should accept that they will be relegated'- why? Since WW1, we've spent much more time in the top flight than outside it- why the f**k wouldn't we want to stay in it? The internet and social media has given some absolute simpletons a platform, I suppose.
  3. Chris Coleman...

    I'll tell ye where I am... I'm oot.
  4. Roy Keane anyone ?

    Even Rudders wouldn't be that daft.
  5. That's fine by me! Not so good for others though, I'd imagine.
  6. Thoughts on Dyche?

    I like him. We could do much, much worse. Wound me up a bit when we were in direct competition with them for promotion and survival, but he's worked wonders with Burnley and seems like a decent bloke. I'd feel for Burnley fans a bit if we did manage to poach him- they would rightly be fuming, after the start they've made. That's football though, I suppose.
  7. Next City Manager?

    If we're after a big name, surely we've got to go all-out for Blanc. He might be tempted for enough money, even if he sees us as a stepping stone for a bigger English job. If we're after a dependable, solid, long-term option, then it has to be Dyche. £2.5m compensation to Burnley is peanuts as well. I'd be pretty happy with either, considering some of the dross leading the betting.
  8. Next City Manager?

    It's not an ideal scenario we find ourselves in- at the moment, my thinking is that I would be pretty relieved if it ended up being Dyche.
  9. Cliff Ginetta

    Only goes to the away games we win, I've heard.
  10. The "do they mean us?" thread

    That's just it, isn't it? I remember Micky Quinn saying on Talksport that Coutinho will stay because Liverpool don't need to sell, then stating categorically a few moments later that they will sign Van Dijk. It's the same with Arsenal fans- hate Van Persie, Nasri, Sagna, Cole, etc. for moving to bigger clubs, then slate Vardy for showing us a bit of loyalty. Elitism in football is rife.
  11. The "do they mean us?" thread

    It was sweet when we beat Sevilla and stayed up last year, and it will be sweet when we put everyone back in their box and start doing better this year as well.
  12. The "do they mean us?" thread

    I've heard people saying 'Leicester need to know their place'- well yeah, we do- we're a traditional yo-yo club who scrap tooth and nail to get promoted/avoid relegation on a regular basis. Which is exactly what we're doing. Some absolute drips around in the media at the minute who don't seem to be too fond of us.
  13. Next City Manager?

    A couple of years ago, I would have loved Allardyce- our owners would have given him some stability, and we could have kept him here for a long-term project like when he was at Bolton. Now, he'd be a purely short-term option which isn't what we want or need.
  14. Thank you Craig

    Top bloke, and a massive part of the success we've experienced over the last decade. Really is a shame that we've lost him altogether, and as has been said above, this was the risk we took when we appointed him permanently as manager. Thanks for everything Craig. One moment which sticks out for me now is Norwich away in 2015/16- 'One Craig Shakespeare' was sung loud, and he gave us the thumbs up. He knew how much we thought of him, despite some of the crap which has been spouted recently.
  15. Shakey Sacked

    We really are a total basket case of a club.
