  1. Still applied today. The person who served me mentioned that 'Friday was the last day' they were doing it, though I didn't know whether to take that to mean tomorrow or next Friday. They're switching to a loyalty card thing though they said themselves that they've been told next to nothing about it.
  2. I'd have thought, seats and spacing aside, that safety regulations in the case of fire escapes and routes and things of that ilk would be pretty restrictive on how much the capacity could be increased by, if it could be increased at all.
  3. Interesting, assuming that's right.
  4. It's not ideal, I know. But it *seems* as though it's a high enough quality to last. Just wash on low heats/iron inside out. As for the design, I don't hate it, but it's growing on me. The arm tag things are ridiculous no matter how you look at it but I was hoping for a long sleeve version to see how that looked, JC have none at the minute though.
  5. Popped into JC on my lunch earlier for a quick look, not embroidered. That said, it's a much more high quality heat transfer than the Puma logos have been in the past. I'm reasonably confident they'll be fine but I'd remain wary of potentially losing a couple after a few washes.
  6. Can't fathom why people suggest a new right back every window. By all means, bring in a younger player and have him available and ready to step in with a view of him being first choice long-term, but Simpson has been excellent these last two years. Granted he isn't the best going forward, but he's defensively sound and rarely has a wobble. One of the few (if even that many) who didn't deserve the flack that the team as a whole got for the first six months of the season. I'd rather invest more into positions that really need strengthening than into those that are more than adequate.
  7. Assuming Shakespeare is given the permanent position, which he seems nailed on for at this point anyway, then I expect he'll get a reasonable budget this summer. Money isn't an issue and even with Walsh being long gone I suspect shrewd business. We're only desperately in need of a new centre back (or two). Truth be told, when this lot play like they're playing right now, or anywhere close to the level that they're capable of, there's no need to demand an overhaul. Shakespeare knows this lot better than anybody, he'll know what's required. The owners aren't delusional, they'll be more than happy with a top ten finish. Establishing ourselves as a top ten club that can challenge for Europe is next step for us.
  8. It's hard to justify being mad after everything we've been given by them for the last year, but I can't take anything positive from that. Gray was only interested in shooting. Mahrez wasn't interested period, bottling every 50/50. Defence was all over the place. Vardy wasn't in the game. With the exceptions of Musa and Drinkwater, maybe Okazaki when he came on, everybody was dire. Dreading next week now if we're going to put in a repeat performance. We'll be put to the sword.
  9. Towards the end of the season I was finding myself at a pub in High Wycombe more and more to watch Tottenham's games and because I was so close to London there were often a fair number of their fans in there when they were on. The night they played Stoke off the park there was a pretty loud Spurs fan about. When he found out I was backing Stoke and questioned me as to why he wouldn't take 'I'm a Leicester fan' as a reason, brushing it off as 'no you're not, not really'. I had to produce my season ticket for him to be convinced. I don't think it really matters - why should it? I don't think any of us need to be vindicated by strangers. The only bit that bothers me is the suggestion that we're obviously so small that it's unthinkable that we actually have any fans outside of the city, which is ludicrous.
  10. On the occasions I met him, and on the few of those that I spent a reasonable length of time in his company he always came across as a really nice man. He's my uncle's dad, so needless to say he, my auntie and my cousins are having a pretty rough time, but they'd be really happy to hear/read what those of you that have posted have said (if that's okay of course). If anybody has any other memories of his playing days I'm sure they'd love to know about any of those too, but please don't feel obliged. As fellow fans you'll be glad to know that he really loved the club, as we all do.
  11. *I should have read the thread before posting above... Ah well. It was this same guy.
  12. There was a guy a couple of rows in front of me to the right in 110 that spent the last fifteen minutes of the first half and the majority of half time bickering with a few people around him because (from what I could gather) he was asked to put his flag down so that they could see. "I'm a passionate Leicester City fan! Home and away! Every game for 30 years! I'll be at Hull next week!" was the beginning and end of his argument as to why he should be able to block people's views with his flag. "If you don't want me holding my flag up you aren't real City fans! I'm going to Hull! Home and away for 30 years!" "I'll be holding it up next week at Hull! Have been doing home and away for 30 years!" And it went on, and on, and on... And on.. And on. Now, I'm in favour of flags, and credit to the guy with it, despite getting pretty hot-headed the longer it went on, he shook one of the other guy's hands and made his way to the concourse, but it only seems fair that people with flags are considerate. Everyone was standing, so it's not as though his flag was just at his shoulder height to have blocked views, but they'd paid just as much as he had to be at the game. Didn't see him all second half, but he parted by letting the people he'd argued with that he was just "really passionate" and had been "home and away for 30 years". Also, I think he might be at Hull next week.
  13. £1 a letter, £4 a number, £7 for a pair of patches!
  14. How did people find out that they were in South Wigston Tesco? There were none when I went... Again.
