  1. For the last month I've thought we were on the way down. Now I think we've got a chance. Shakey and most of the players have been here before. It's not the same this time around because two years ago we were at least turning up for every game but things weren't going our way until the last nine games. Now we've to turn around the performances, but how we finished the game on Wednesday in Sevilla suggests we can do this. ?
  2. Excellent piece.
  3. Now that we are to leave the EU, it would seem that we won't be able to sign virtually unknown players like Mahrez or Kante as they won't have the required caps etc to gain clearance to play in this country. This would apply to players such as Payet at WHU, Martial at MU etc. So unless a team can fork out mega millions to sign established international players who would still pass the entry qualifications, teams like ours would appear to have even less chance to break into the upper tier of the Prem. A knock on effect would surely be to lower the overall standard of the leagues in this country, whilst at the same time possibly increasing chances of home grown talent to flourish. Scouting systems will consequently need to be overhauled and revamped to take into account the changing times and we have to hope that LCFC will be ahead of the game in order to deal with things as they develop. Or have I got this all wrong?
  4. Hi! Bob here. Been following things on FT for several years and never got around to joining. Like a few other first timers I thought that if I don't post now I never will. Have been a Fox since about 1960. I grew up in Nottinghamshire but always followed City. My dad (now 93) is from Leicester. He took me to my first game March 1963, 2-2 draw with Spurs. Goals from Stringfellow and Keyworth, Smith and Greaves. Attendance 41,622. So many memories over the years and then this season right out of the blue (as you might say). Leicester City PL Champions!! How did that happen? Chances of this disappeared long since. I'm still afraid somebody will take it off us for fielding an ineligible player or something. Now living in Halifax and my club, the team I've followed for well over half a century, is everyone's favourite story. I feel very humble reading some of the well wishes and comments in the previous pages, and can't quite take in the level of support and friendship shown in those posts and in the genuine pleasure of supporters from other clubs and even other countries that I met or saw just soaking up or indeed creating the atmosphere outside the KP last Saturday. As Claudio has said - "Continue to dream." Perhaps this story is not finished yet. Don't know if my heart is strong enough but I'll risk it!
