  1. Granted this is mainly to Liverpool but you look at the below team of players they've sold in the past 4 years and its no wonder they're in trouble; this would be a top 6 team Gazzaniga Clyne Van Dijk Lovren Shaw Wanyama Schneiderlin Mane Lallana Tadic Pelle Their recruitment to replace these players has been poor also Carrillo £19m (now on loan), Gunn for £12m when they already have McCarthy and Forster, Bouffal £16m (also on loan) etc

    Supporters coaches - Harborough

    I can only assume he is referring to the 7.45 and 8pm KO's because the last train back to Harborough is 9.56,
  3. Just shows the disparity between Premier League football and the rest of Europe when Watford, Palace, Newcastle, Wolves, Burnley are above PSG, Barca, Real, Bayern and Dortmund etc 18 of the 20 its shameful really considering we also get the most TV money by far as well. I went to see Bayern vs Berlin last season, a top 6 clash in the Bundesliga for 18 Euro's!! That wasn't even the cheapest seat

    Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha has died at the age of 60

    I've refrained from writing anything until this point, mainly due to the state of shock and disbelief I've felt since hearing the news on Saturday. However I also wanted to cling onto the hope that the fate of the great man was not as widely speculated. He is responsible for the greatest period of this clubs history and for me personally the greatest moments I've ever witnessed and second only to my wedding day as the happiest days of my life. Without this man, none of it would have been possible. I would constantly tell my friends and family (and anyone that would listen) that my club have the greatest owners in the world. We all had a slight smile when the free beers, doughnuts and mince pies were announced but it wasn't with rolled eyes but it was because it was a familiar reminder of our owners generosity. No other clubs had these gestures which he didn't have to do, he wanted to do them. His way of saying thank you. However all along we are the ones who always were and always will be thankful. The legacy he has left behind at our club cannot be overstated. He will never be forgotten and we cannot let it be forgotten. A humble, generous man who not only positively impacted this club and its fans but the wider community. He fully embraced the City as much as the club. Rest in Peace
  5. Ahead of this weekends game, Skysports are doing a 'select your own Mourinho Premier League XI'. It shows the quality of the current United team that only one of them made it into mine and even then i could easily have even selected 2004-07 Cech over De Gea De Gea Ivanovic Carvalho Terry Cole Makelele Essien Lampard Robben Drogba Hazard
  6. Yes there is no pleasing everyone and this is a price to pay for TV injecting so much money into our game but decisions like the Spurs game, makes such little sense, The last train to London is 9.53! Meaning practically all the Spurs fans and a fair few Leicester fans who live in Harborough or Kettering will either have to drive (everyone loves doing that on a Saturday night) or miss the last 10 minutes of the game. Add that to the fact that it's likely to be a lot of people Xmas night out. Saturday lunch time or Sunday would just make so much more sense. I didn't think that stupidity could be topped until I saw Everton at Lunch time on NYD! Leicester fans will need to leave around 8am to make it! Happy New Year guys
  7. Can’t make the Spurs game now, I didn’t even know 7.45 on a Saturday was a thing! Gutted

    The Beatles

    With the 50th anniversary and remastered set coming up, I challenged myself to make the ultimate White Album single album. Taking into consideration the time constraints and two sided nature of the 1968 release i came up with the below Side One Back In The USSR Dear Prudence Revolution 1 Everybody's Got Something to Hide... While My Guitar Gently Weeps Happiness is a Warm Gun Julia Side Two Helter Skelter Yer Blues Mother Nature's Son I'm So Tired Blackbird Sexy Sadie Cry Baby Cry More Lennon heavy than I'd have thought originally but also a lot tougher. Songs like Piggies and Rocky Racoon often get thrown away as filler but they have a certain charm and i'm so used to having them on the album I think i'd miss them.
  9. The state of the bottom 6 or so is awful. Apparently the standard of the league is getting better?? Those lot are just dreadful. Us, Wolves and Everton can have a battle royale with Man United for 6th😀 i think the 3 already in the relegation places are already done. Calling it early but 32 points will be enough this season

    Oasis

    Sounds weird but i actually think Oasis are underrated (or more precisely Noel as a songwriter) Their output from 94-97 was prolific on a scale really seen before or since. Over 60 officially released original tracks in three years (4 albums worth of material) of outstanding class including some of the finest B-sides in musical history. They went a bit shit (or average) in the 00's but that mid 90's period should not be overlooked. I mean look how shit the Stones and the Who went from 75 onwards and somehow that's brushed under the carpet when their legacy is questioned. With Oasis, maybe because they're more recent, it's the first thing people tend to mention.

    What if watford do a leicester

    Where did I say anything resembling that it would have meant less? I meant it was tremendous as in the volume that they cheered us on, which the majority did not that it made me feel tremendous

    What if watford do a leicester

    I can't see it happening ever again but I would wish them every success, As another post said earlier, the support and admiration given to us from supporters of other clubs was tremendous when we won it, It'd be a bit petty if it wasn't reciprocated, We were Premier League Champions in 15/16 nothing can ever change that
  13. Can’t believe some moaners in here! We played incredibly well for 80 mins of that game and we did ourselves proud. Trust me that’ll be one of the toughest games they’ll have this season Maddison, Chilwell and Mendy were all 10/10 and if we play anywhere near that against the vast majority of the other teams in the league we’ll smash em The team we played today were in the Champions League final 3 months ago and we outplayed them for most the match. Heads up guys, this team of ours is pretty damn good

    Southampton (A) Match Thread

    Whilst Evans was poor, especially in the first half, against Wolves. Dropping him after one game isn’t the answer.
