First and foremost welcome. The more the merrier.
As a team we spent years wrestling with our neighbours, Derby & Nottingham Forest for local bragging rights eventually coming out on top in the late 90s thanks to Martin O’Neil (look him up) and his band of brothers led by the behemoth that was Matty Elliot.
For the early 2000s we fluctuated from distaster to semi success and ended up 2 leagues below the prem thanks to an alarmingly incompetent Bristolian Ian Holloway, who effectively special move finished the slide one manager called Peter Taylor started.
Several disasterous managerial appointments resulted in a disappointing but steady climb until Nigel (the ostrich) Pearson started the revolution and led us to success 2013/2014 season and we finally got into the premiership and stayed there.
I am sure the ensuing years are why you want to support us and I don’t need to labour the miraculous chain of events over our recent successful period.
We have NEVER won the FA Cup, Vardy is a god, Dennis Wise is a Tuesday (look up the expression and his story) and most of the posters on here squabble like a big family. At times we post stupid stuff but we learn to live with and forgive each other as, at the end of the day we have lived through all of this shit together.
Buckle in and enjoy the ride.
Oh and it’s pronounced Les-tah
