  1. Sorry if it's been done before, but could Leicestershire - population not that different to N Ireland or Iceland or Latvia - field a respectable international team? Or even field one at all? So far as I know; Barnes, Choudhury, Luke Thomas, Liam Moore, Che Adams, Lee Tomlyn ( does he still play?), Joe Mattock, Oliver Burke Anyone else who plays at a respectable professional level?
  2. Convinced we'll make it a precondition that he jacks NI in return for a handsome new contract. We can't have them absolutely rinsing through a rolls Royce of a player like they did last intl break
  3. Turkish FA completely wasted a business class air fare and hotel room on Cags. What a waste of time, money and effort
  4. I don't think Your average punter in the street sees us as 'little'. Tbh, most see us as we are. Some kind of funky disrupter. Basically we are perceived as 'best of the rest': Newcastle, Southampton, West Ham etc I'm happy with that
  5. I doubt the effectiveness of maskat outdoors, tbh, but Infront of kids there's a wider cause; namely standard setting and respect (for the school)
  6. Are people supposed to wear masks then at the school gate? (No sarcasm, my two are old enough to go by themselves, so I have no idea of school gate etiquette)
  7. Not M. Puel. To my dismay at the time, he drafted Mendy back intobthe fold after his season at Nice. His performances were Excellent then and many of us were delighted to eat our words for that very decent half season (despite many holding it against Mendy himself for Puel's negative double pivot) Brendan came in, soon dropped him (to my own disappointment) and he was largely frozen out for last season. Which made Rodgers' decision to resign him all the more surprising. But, what a lovely player he is. I just love players that are prepared to
  8. Pulling. I've kinda embraced being absolutely useless at it after years of shame about it Then I watch BBC iPlayer the other day on BBC's Frank Gardner. 59 year old paraplegic. Even he's pulled recently. That kinda hit home that I'll never get my head round pulling.
  9. Still expect them to be up and down for a while yet. My worry with BA is that business travel will take a major hit post pandemic. The days of flying over to New York for a routine meeting are over
  10. Yesterday's rises only offset a heavy drop in RR and IAG for me. I'm about 15% down now from my buy price in April. Its been as low recently as 60% down (mainly thro rolls and IAG doing a new issue of shares for capital, thus devaluing the rest) My three managed funds are chugging along nicely. £500 made yesterday alone and overall 11% up since opening in April
  11. Did my first ever lapdance club in Gdansk. Great value.
  12. I know fT has a thing for this lad, but he's not ready for the level we are at yet, other than a last choice emergency fill in. Our team is elite level. He's understandably not an elite player yet. He looks as if he has a mean whipped cross and pass in him and a great instinct for putting it in the right area...but ATM he's physically too weak, not quite quick enough and defensively too green. A loan at out at some garbage like Derby would be ideal for him to cut his teeth
  13. I know it's not the point you are making, not being serious, but I have a bee in my bonnet about using that phrase - even in jest. We are massively respected in the game. Not by the media, as we don't make the media enough clicks. But we narked Pep and Arteta not because we are some unwelcome guest. We nark them because we are better than them.
  14. It's an extraordinary signing. Even better, we knew it. Puel knew it. St Etienne knew it. Rudkin, Congerton, Rodgers knew it. And somebody 'sold' LCFC to him and his agent long ago. That boy was ours and we were prepared to pay top dollar. An extraordinary piece of business. i think as a fanbase we need to up our game. We are an ugly duckling that's turned into a beautiful swan. City are building a rep worldwide as a major club. This silver medallist thing from Rodgers was bang on. We are cool as fack and 'silver medal' players worldwid
  15. I reckon that'll be the crux of any new deal. After this play off game and potential summer tournament, I reckon a pre condition of any new contract is that he jacks in N Ireland
  16. I reckon it might be some considerable time til we see peak Ricardo.....it could take 2/3 months for him.to hit stride and could well be a bench / rotation player behind Jim Justin for the rest of this season. Someone else said on here earlier this week, that they'll wince evvrytime he goes into a challenge. Me too.
  17. I'm sure. I rated Ricardo from the get go at man Utd away. Not to the level of Fofana or Kante, admittedly. But i was sure we had a good un. Sadly the annual Bournemouth debacle convinced many fans that Ricardo was off the pace, rather than the bad day at the office. Before you think I'm crowing and a smart arse, I got Soyuncu totally wrong. I thought he was going to be a disaster.
  18. On that basis the following all get some rest/recovery Vards, Fuchs, Mendy, Barnes, Castagne Disgrace about Soyuncu. We send them our delicate vase. They send the facker back broken. We try to fix it with specialist glue. Then they ask for the facker back to chuck about again
  19. The only good thing for the teams a the bottom is that there's six if them who are miles off the required standard (tho I think Brighton and Burnley edge the promoted three and sheff utd)....I think as few as 25 points will clinch 4th bottom this year....so none at the bottom need panic as they are not adrift from safety
  20. Staggering how basic their scouting operation must be. My first thought when spending £18m on that keeper was that surely upon surely you could scour Europe and unearth a competent, run of the mill half decent keeper for a million or two. And I probably 25% of the wage I'd imagine that one of the problems is that Wilder and the Sheff Utd football admin staff are not well networked in those circles
  21. You cannot let the lad Thomas anywhere near this match. They will eat him.alive. Traore will have a field day. He's not ready for this level of football yet
  22. Could do with the incredibly poor sheff utd having a freak day taking something off the rent boys here
  23. I warned that nice - but deluded - Leeds dude o here all last week that streetwise teams like us, hammers, Sainta, palace and even Burnley would take them apart. And to think he was trying to compile pre match a dream xi combined of us and them, lol. He took umbrage when it was pointed out a combined xi would be all city players 😂😂
  24. Two weeks back we were all saying just hang on in there around top 5 or 6 - and qualify thro EL group - til Xmas, when , hopefully, we'll welcome back Wilf and Ricardo and Cags and see Maddison and Castagne at full strength. I think we shouldn't realistically set our sights and of that. And of course, we are super reliant on Vards..lose him for more than 3/4 games and we'd never have enough
  25. Plus heart disease. That's another 400+ a day
