    While I feel we will win this match, this is the only match out of the next 4 I am somewhat unsure about. I don't mean to be pessimistic at all really, but I feel more confident playing against Aston Villa, Norwich, and Watford. We should get 10-12 points out of these next 4 games before playing LiVARpool and Man City over Christmas.

    That has just gone into number 3 of the most annoying puns or play on words on this forum.... sitting behind ‘Brenda’ in front of ‘Spuds’ but number 1 by miles is still ’Chelski‘

  2. I think he has been the right man to bring in at the right time to oversee a culture change and succession planning in many aspects of the national set up.  Lots of businesses do things like this with growth managers but are not employed to run a company long term.  Southgate has done a lot of good things but I feel he is now out of his depth tactically and in man management to take England forward to any decent level of success.

    Apparently Henderson bossing man city or Maddison bossing arsenal was not comparable to Winks being given the run around by sheff United or ox watching from the bench. He does watch from the bench really well though to be fair and his hair is nice. 

    Have just copied this and pasted it into a text for some friends as I loved it. You won’t get credited but just know that plagiarism is the sincerest form of flattery

  4. It’s a bloody conspiracy. So obvious that the message from the FA is ‘Play for the ‘big’ clubs and you’ll get in the England starting 11’ it’s so utterly disgraceful that the Ox walks back in. Winks isn’t even a starter for Spurs. Surprise Maguire is now almost now the first name on the team sheet when at Leicester he was ‘in the mix’ the whole thing is the FA trying to control the cash cow by rewarding players to move to protect the showcase teams who earn the overseas marketing rights. Makes me sick. Southgate is a bloody stooge and a spineless company man.

    Dreading this game. 


    We’ve had a good start and are unbeaten, Man Utd are currently going through their worst ever start and have one clean sheet in their last 19. 


    Typical Leicester.... 

    I would argue that thankfully, this is now an obsolete phrase.

    It feels like baby steps sometimes mate, which thanks to many brilliant people on here, doesn't feel like a bad thing!


    Hope your therapy went OK bud.

    I think baby steps are largely all we can realistically manage to ensure that progress is sustainable and we don’t get amazing highs followed by awful lows.


    CBT was really good. I have 3 more sessions, 2 hours each one over the next 3 weeks and then I’ll go from there. Learning about the concept of flight or fight and applying it to anxiety was very revealing to me. I will share stuff once I get more of a handle on it.


    Keep going everyone. @HowardsBulletHeader Well done for chatting, your comments about anonymity on here mirror mine. That this is such a remarkable forum that allows us to talk to strangers without fear of judgement (and amongst fellow foxes fans!!) has been such a release for me to be able to cope.


    My CBT and Able Futures work is really helping me understand what my triggers are and how to not treat myself like utter shit. As ever if anyone ever wants to DM please do.

  7. Evening. Not posted for a while. 


    I start my cognitive behavioural therapy tomorrow. I feel a bit weird about it but also that, with my Able Futures talks I am slowly surrounding myself with people and organisations that can help.


    My self esteem is still so low but I couldn’t help but post based on that Robin Williams comment which reasonates so much. I have wonderful kids, a loving wife and great friends that I am really trying to recognise and accept the positive impact I have on their lives but it is often too hard and my self worth plummets. Thankfully things are getting better and any thoughts of ending it no longer enter my mind.


    Reading so much good stuff particularly the progress from @urban.spaceman on here makes me hopeful.


    If anyone is struggling at work I recommend ‘Able Futures’ they are a govt funded mental health service and have been a big help.

    Probably our biggest question mark player this season now.  None of us really know how this will play out.


    He will be nervous, he will take a little time to get into the "swing of things".  He will need our support for sure.


    Fingers crossed for the lad.

    Love this post. We need to get behind him.  He could be something special.

    Right well it looks like Holiday Inn is popular and seen as that is close to the ground, makes sense. 


    How about Holiday Inn at 12:30 ish, meet just outside the fanstore at 12:30 and see where it takes us? 


    I've attached an image to help identify me. If I'm stood all alone please do take pity on me. :nigel:






    Alright Nige.

  10. I love this idea. I have often thought about trying to arrange this but I get to so few games. If it all works out I think this could be a great thing that my plastic ass would love to be involved with. Oh, I’ll be the 6ft good looking one in the ‘Porto 16’ shirt

    Thanks for the money and hes joined a crap Man u side with an incompetent Manager.Pressures on him now.......



    If I could go through every post on this forum and flag utter bollocks in some sort of 0-10 bollock rating this one would score a perfect 10. There is so much wrong with this comment I have no idea where to start and can only assume it’s a troll otherwise it is a a sad indictment as to where this forum is headed.

    Very interesting stats, for sure. They tell a truth, but perhaps not always THE truth. 

    Stats are meaningless without context, someone tried to clumsily compare Maguire’s stats to Dunk’s the other day. 2 players in markedly different teams. They have their place but most of the time are twisted to suit and thrown about to support someone’s often mislaid opinion.
