  1. I'm not sure how much anyone wants a progress report on Josh Knight's loan spell with us (Wycombe), but he is an absolute Ferrari at this level. We had a rough start adjusting to the jump up between L1 and the Championship (7 straight losses to open, though with horrific refereeing decisions taking points off the board four games in a row at one point), but have found our feet a little more with Josh in the side - in the last five, we have won two, drawn two, and lost one. Obviously we are still going to struggle against relegation all season, but Josh is an absolute standout performer, week i
  2. Not a Leicester fan (Wycombe), but a thought occurred to me when I read some Man City article bleating on about them being the "outsiders". The anti-establishment club in the PL is actually Leicester City. Not in the way of being contrarian and thumbing your noses at other clubs at any opportunity, but because of what you symbolize to the "big six"...the possibility of someone else winning it all. I read something (I think on here?) where an exec from one of the big clubs supposedly said something along the lines of "the last thing we need is another Leicester". Then you have Leicester being t
  3. As a Wycombe fan, we look like struggling to stay up, but we are playing with house money, as that playoff win may have saved the club (our owner has money, but not ridiculous money). Our budget last season was around 1.9 million. Evidently that is going up more to the 3-4 million range, which is still the lowest this century for the second tier, I would bet. TV money means we get about 9 million in, even without fans, and the cost of playing games without fans will eat up a massive chunk of the difference. But either way, we are one of the few clubs in the country who could emerge
  4. Congratulations Leicester - you come across as the only PL club with a soul after that vote (Wycombe fan).
  5. This really is all very relative. As a fan of a League One club, we tend to feel the way about the entire PL that you do about the 'Big Six'. Our left back scored one of the most unusual hat-tricks you will ever see earlier this season - two goals direct from corners, and a free kick - and it did not warrant even a footnote on the main sports sites. If it was a PL left back, they would still be playing it on repeat. To me, Leicester is an absolutely massive club. To a non-league team, my club might seem like a big deal. And to Leicester, the big six are still "big" (speaking in ter
  6. It really depends how you look at it. He STAYS, because... 1 - Leicester are a perfectly balanced squad punching above their weight. 2 - Leicester are nailed on top four, and playing like at least the second best team in the country. 3 - Leicester will offer CL football next season, which Arsenal will not. 4 - Leicester have solid foundations, and an upward trajectory. 5 - If you combined the two teams, perhaps 9 or 10 would come from Leicester currently, with only Auba guaranteed to start from the Arsenal side. 6 - He has only just got to Leicester, a
  7. The whole system is buggered. The English pyramid system was one of the delights of sport, but it is rotten from head to foot now. Even clubs that try and live within their means (such as my Wycombe) have a real struggle on their hands. There is no one person or institution to blame - it has all happened over time, between the PL, the EFL, the likes of Chelsea and Man City causing wages to go up higher, and the lure of the PL causing Championship teams to lose their minds at the roulette table. Either way, the system is broken. Leicester winning the league feels like the last true
  8. The one's responsible for football's mess are never the one's punished.
  9. I know this thread is facetious, but I still think it is a disgrace. A few months ago, the whole football world united in well wishes towards Leicester. I would bet that fans from every English club laid scarves, and other memorials. At the time, the kind of responses on this forum were along the lines of "I'm welling up," "We're all one football family", and a genuine feeling of unity in the footballing world. Today, on the day that you memorialized your former owner's birthday, you have a thread speculating which club's fans you would like to inflict misery upon by di
  10. Wycombe fan here. Deepest condolences to everyone at the club. The whole football world united in amazement at your miracle title - now may we all unite in support for your loss.
  11. Twenty years from now, this will be seen as a golden period - not just the league win (which is obvious, and golden even now), but when Leicester fans could look at 8th as underwhelming...
