    'When Your Smiling' Being a Leicester fan when the miracle happened
  2. Callum Elder loan

    I think we can be confident that Claude will be monitoring Elder's progress carefully and if he's good enough, will be in our squad for preseason training.Fuchs wonderful career swansong with us must be nearly at an end and we've already seen Chilwell being used on the left of midfield , so it wouldn't be beyond the realms of possibility for them both to play - although I think it unlikely.
  3. I think that those that played last night were excused, therefore Mahrez , Benny and the rest of the squad should have been in .His back to work interview will be very interesting . On another point , why do we have to wait until 3.30 for Sky to tell us the news we've all been waiting to hear ?- The Mercury and Radio Leicester are pretty lame aren't they .
  4. Well done the Thais

    Great Idea - this has lifted my depression that we were trapped in a nightmare hiatus .Hope Rudders picks up on your solution.
  5. Ulloa - To Brighton on loan (Page 8)

    I think we can be pretty sure this is goodbye and am really pleased for him - I'm happy to forget last season's shenanigans and remember his memorable contribution to the title win , the 'earthquake' goal against Norwich and brace against Swansea when Vardy was suspended will live with with me forever .
  6. is reaching 4th/5th possible ?

    Our next six games include four teams who have replaced their managers and will now be far more difficult .The two games against Swansea and Stoke that were six points in the bank with another 4 fairly assured from Everton and West Brom away, now look a lot more tricky .With the trip to Man City unlikely to yield anything and bogey team Bournemouth a perennial banana skin, a reasonable estimate was 11 points , but I'm fearing it might only be 8 or 9 .
  7. Fleetwood Town (A) 0-0 FA Cup 3rd Round

    Surprised to see that the replay is on BT Sport again
  8. Chelsea (A) pre-match

    Having seen Barnes at Fleetwood on Saturday , I'd be amazed if he is anywhere near the starting line up .My Barnsley supporting mates rate him highly , but nowhere near to James who they think is one of the best players they have ever had .
  9. Fleetwood Town (A) pre-match

    Nice early departure for Fleetwood at 6.30 tomorrow morning and I'm looking forward to this more than any FA Cup tie for years. The prospect of completing the holy trinity of Premier League and both Cups is massive to us geriatrics and I'm as excited as I was in 1969 when I went to every tie ,except the Liverpool replay.The intervening 48 years have rarely offered us a sniff of actually winning it , but this year feels different .
  10. Southampton (A) pre-match

    I reckon Romeu picked up his 5th booking of the season yesterday , so will be suspended - If I'm right, it will be a big plus for us as he's bossed the midfield whenever we play them down there.
  11. Next up . . . Manchester City (Home) thoughts?

    Not sure if it's already been posted , but Otamendi is suspended , so they have to change their line up and/or formation .I sense a typical Leicester turn up with Vardy ,Mahrez and Gray tearing them apart ,a 4-3 repeat of the 1968 FA Cup Replay
  12. FIFA reject Adrien Silva appeal

    I don't believe the training ban has anything to do with FIFA , my hunch is that this is the idea of the club lawyers in order to leave us the armaggedon option of litigation against Sporting and refusing to pay the transfer fee. Whether this is correct will very soon become clear and could make the present furore seem like a squabble at a toddlers day nursery .The honourable thing to do is get him training with the lads and organise a series of closed door games to fill the three months until we can sign him properly and he can hit the ground running in January . In the meantime, if we have reasonable grounds for an appeal to the CoS , we can get on with that as well.
  13. Tom Lawrence

    If you are correct in your assertion ,Lawrence should have been told ,so he wouldn't now be going public with his surprise at the absence of contact . Whichever way you dress it up , it's a management failing .
  14. Tom Lawrence

    I put this entirely down to John Rudkin and is a damning indictment of his effectiveness. The rumour that we hawked Lawrence around during the transfer window then backed off when Newcastle and Burnley wanted him ,after he scored all those worldies ,sounds depressingly true.
  15. Poor TV pundits with sh#te opinions

    John Cross put the boot in on MOTD2 on Sunday and again on Talksport this morning .The genius who predicted we'd get relegated last season ,obviously nurtures a grudge for the year of embarrassment he's suffered ever since , but offered the lamest criticism yet. Asked what he thought had happened ,he mumbled an incoherent response and finished off with 'what has happened doesn't sit well with me ' - with no explanation or justification .It was so weak that Alan Brazil changed the subject immediately and ,even though it was a 'mauled by a dead sheep' moment, it still rankles .
