  1. But only for domestic transfers - we will have to wait till June 9th for any European transfers
  2. Just dredged this up to see how good their predictions, made after 10 games, turned out. They got our points total exactly right! Wolves obviously did better than expected and Bournemouth worse.
  3. A big difference from that season is that we lost 0-3 at home to Arsenal I have a vague recollection that it was actually an early kickoff as well
  4. The most un-Arsenal like performance I have ever seen, but we were brilliant. The potential is frightening!
  5. When i was born there were no official fixtures for some years as there was a war on! However my association with Leicester began during that time as my father's family, who lived in the East end of London, were bombed out and re-homed in Leicester. You could say the first Leicester strike for me was by the Luftwaffe
  6. Most enjoyable match I've seen this season. Speed, quick passing and so much energy all over the field. That performance from Ndidi was like watching a stretch Kante Bornemouth have some good players but we totally dominated the second half
  7. My take is very simple - we were not great, but neither were we terrible and we were within a nat's whisker of a point against a team , who remember, are above us in the league. I saw some small changes today - Madison for instance was much more in the face of his opponent than previously. Onwards an upwards I hope
  8. I agree - he came across as an engaging character, you can see why he has been around for so long. I particularly liked his remarks about having told the players that winning ugly was better than playing well and loosing, but that maybe they took that too literally
  9. Thank God for that - a home win at last A few periods of sparkling attacking play , but not surprisingly after the run we have had, signs of nerves, lack of confidence and some silly mistakes. Still - two cracking goals and Barnes looks like he could become a hell of a player .
  10. Well at least I now don't have to read the post match thread! I liked the plan, but his inability to really engage with the fans and maybe the players I guess seems to have lead to his downfall
  11. We are in Southend for the weekend and the Blackpool team are staying in our hotel complete with star striker Jo Dodoo. I had completely forgotten that he scored a hat trick for us not so long ago Seems to be doing well in L1 now
  12. So glad the club have posted this. It really got to me at the ground when "Time to say Goodbye" suddenly came on.
  13. We went down at lunchtime today. The tributes were still all there and hundreds of people still there. Walking to the ground most groups of people, like us, were carrying flowers. It really is an incredible reflection of how highly regarded he was.
  14. What a shocking end to the day to get home after the game and see this news. The only comfort is seeing the incredible support on here from football fans from so many other clubs.
  15. For Stats lovers I discovered an interesting site today: https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/soccer-predictions/premier-league The people behind this have had a lot of success predicting US election results and sports and have recently starting looking at football. They have an interesting and evolving prediction model. According to their current predictions we will finish 7th with 52 points. 6th is predicted to be Man U with 62 points, but Bournemouth, Watford, Everton and Wolves are predicted to be within 3 points of us. So, basically 7-11 is anyone of four , but 6th is out of reach. I don't think that is much of a surprise even without any statistical analysis. We are currently expected to, on average, score 1.9 goals per match and concede 0.8 goals. If you look at the whole table it is clearly the goals scored that is the decisive factor - there is not much to chose between teams in terms of expected goals against. In case you are interested they predict that in the US mid term elections there is a 6/7 chance of the Democrats taking the House of Representatives, but only a 2/9 chance for the Senate
