  1. But here's the difference. If Man U have a bad season, they can drop 150m in the transfer market, year after year until they get it right. Their ceiling is far higher than ours.
  2. I really don't get some of the hate. We knew last summer that big clubs wanted Maguire and that he would like to play for a big club. So we signed two young defenders and got him to commit to giving us an extra year. We've now got a world record fee for a defender and Maguire gets to play for one of the biggest clubs in the world. It might not work out for him, but he'd be daft not to take the opportunity to play for one of the biggest clubs in the world. As sad as it is, Man Utd are a juggernaut of a club compared to us. I get that we're only a few places below Man Utd in the league and are looking up at a top six spot, but that is the only bit where we're close to Utd in terms of club size. So fair play to Harry and thanks for giving good service to the club whenever you've played. It was a joy to cheer a Leicester player on for England at a world cup all the way to a semi final. Obviously I hope we finish above Utd, so hope they struggle but other than that, I wish him success. One good thing is it's a good advert for promising youngsters to choose us over a big club's bench. First team football, chance to challenge for Europe, play for your national side and know you won't be denied a move to a big club. It's the natural progression for a club like us and will no doubt see Chilwell and Maddison move next Summer.
  3. Right decision but should have been sooner before the window. The timing is pretty rubbish
  4. We can't be losing 4-1 at home to Palace. But there's little point getting rid of Puel at this point in the season, with the transfer window long gone. A new man in the summer.
  5. UKIP are a threat in that they're trying to copy the rise of nationalist parties in Europe. Whether that has any traction here in the UK, we'll see but a lot will hinge on Labour and Farage's new party. If they start coming out with left wing policies, they could take a lot of Labour votes. Farage's new party would then eat into their vote share.
  6. Agreed but Claudio needs huge credit for that tweaking tactics to a rigid system where everyone knew their job and could rely on the system. All the 1-0 wins were the response.
  7. Happy with the selection. Nice to see us going for it. N'Didi the key man today. It's a big ask but if he can shackle Pogba, then we'll have a good game.
  8. Good luck to Andy. He's never let the club down and been instrumental in helping us resuscitate the club after relegation from league one through to promotion to the premier league. Without him, the impossible may never have happened.
  9. Science museum is probably best for kids, so you've done the top one. But British Museum is ace. They do family activity packs which are great. Well worth getting. https://www.britishmuseum.org/visiting/family_visits/gallery_backpacks.aspx
  10. That's very sad. Presumably rescuers are still searching for the wreckage so I hope there's good news, albeit it looks unlikely.
  11. Wagner doesn't want the job till the Summer?
