  1. The Last 8 Games Of Riyad Mahrez

    Don't agree with the negative critiques of Mahrez vs Chelsea. I thought it was evident he was trying especially hard, even winning the ball back in the defensive end and creating some chances, including the only goal.
  2. Just delved into that link. Last game vs. Birmingham (lost3-2) - Banks, King, Appleton, Gibson and Stringfellow were absent. If they won this last game it would have put them in 3rd.
  3. Thanks for posting, davieG! I was too young to appreciate the new system LCFC were playing at that time, so it's good to see a detailed description of it. I do remember seeing a televised interview with Graham Cross in which he said winning the Cup was more important than the league to him - not sure exactly how long before the Final this happened though. I also remember that in their last league game a week before the final they fielded a much weakened side, along with a list of "injuries" to some key players. I suppose at that point the league title was out of reach.
  4. FA cup 6th round 2nd replay 1954

    This might be a clue: https://www.sportspages.com/product/preston_north_end_v_leicester_city_1953_54_(fa_cup)_football_programme_21280
  5. What do you think Claudio did wrong?

    Interesting to look back to his sacking from the Greece national team; he is quoted as saying: “We are last in our group because that is what we deserve. The coach is always responsible for that." https://www.theguardian.com/football/2014/nov/15/greece-sack-claudio-ranieri-faroe-islands
  6. Now Shakespeare's in Charge

    Enjoyed the adaptation of Sonnet 18 - just hope LCFC finish above 18!
  7. Ian King: 1937-2016 RIP

    Thanks for posting DavieG. That Easter Monday game against Man Utd that he mentioned was the first LCFC game I saw - epic match (Ken Keyworth hat trick and Terry Heath goal vs Dennis Law hat trick!) Very interesting to hear his comments about the change of tactics at the end of that season.
  8. Leicester Shirt Giveaway

    Yes - will good on me! Thanks
  9. It's not over yet - fat lady's not singing.

    I remember that well too. Although for the last league game they left out many regular 1st team players to save them for the cup final. All sorts of minor injuries and illnesses that miraculously got back in time for the final.
  10. Favourite goal celebration

    Arthur Chandler 1928, his 6th goal vs Portsmouth!
  11. Frank McLintock great player awful manager

    This thread gives me chance to relive a fond boyhood memory that illustrates more of Frank's personality. In 1963 or 1964, I decided to look up addresses of City players in the local phone book. Not too far from where I lived, was Jimmy Walsh and Frank McLintock (Wyngate Drive/Wescotes Drive area). A friend and I went to Jimmy Walsh's newsagent shop, but he wasn't in the shop when we stopped by. However, when we knocked on Frank McLintock's door, his wife answered and invited us in. We chatted with Frank for a while, then he took us to his back lawn and we passed a ball around for a while. He juggled the ball for us, and taught us a couple of moves. After a while his wife came out and complained that we were making a mess of the lawn (it was getting pretty muddy). So that ended the games, but my friend and I were each given a glass of milk and sent on our way.

  13. where do players live?

    This thread gives me chance to relive a fond boyhood memory. In 1963 or 1964, I decided to look up addresses of City players in the local phone book (remember those?).

I think at that time, McLintock was a Scottish international; he moved to Arsenal in late in 1964, and eventually was made their captain. Of course, he became manager of Leicester in 1977.
  14. Very clever and very funny!
