  1. Incredible that two years have passed. I think he’d be extremely proud of Top on the decisions he has made and where we are as a club at the moment. The first anniversary we won 9-0 away, the second we win at Arsenal for the first time in 47yrs. Vichai has truly been watching over us proudly 🦊💙🦊💙🦊
  2. Started getting into football when I went to school in Ashby. The majority of people supported City, so I picked it up. My uncle took me to a Boxing Day game at Filbert Street in 96 or 97. I still get that same buzz at 32 going week in week out with Dad, that I got as an 8 or 9 year old walking into the stadium, seeing the pitch, going to my seat. The season after the title win, even if we lost I wasn’t that fussed because we’d basically achieved the impossible. After Christmas when it was starting to look dire, that soon changed. Having started to go to the majority of the aways from 2017, I
  3. Great draw, Braga will be tricky, and can’t claim to know an awful lot about AEK Athens beyond the name. High chance of progression and not too much taxing travel other than potentially Zorya. The draw hasn’t been kind to the Scottish sides, Celtic particularly
  4. Brewster to Sheffield United for £23.5m. Seems like a lot of money and a big gamble. Liverpool have a 15% sell on an a buy back for 3yrs. They are certainly skilled at getting good deals on player sales
  5. Vardy has said he will be okay for next week. The one they seem most concerned about is Praet, but hopefully will be not long as he’s started the season very well. Ndidi is a big loss but Mendy has started the season very well for us. It was pleasing for us to see Rodgers adjust his approach which many have felt he was not prepared to do. I’m sure Man City will improve but if we’d spent £400m+ on our defence over the past few years I would be livid! There was no leadership out there yesterday for Man City, and it was a day our young lads came of age
  6. Ever obliging Manchester City - Leicester are the first side to score three penalties in a Premier league game Hopefully a few more doubters silenced and some respect earned and belief gained. Props to Amartey for playing so well on return, props to all of them for executing the game plan. Incredibly proud, just such a pity we couldn’t be there to see it
  7. Can we turn up and wave a white flag every week. This does us the world of good not just for the points but for the belief that we can go somewhere like this and win. A come of age moment.
  8. Boring boring Leicester That was a very enjoyable watch, we seem to have our attacking mojo back! Castagne has made all the difference to that. JJ was obviously a target for them to exploit with their height, and switched off for the set play, but I thought overall he did well. With Ünder to come in, and Ricardo to come back in, Evans on his way back, and hopefully another centre half on the way in, hopefully the doom and gloom after the tail end of last season will fade away. We have a great first eleven, and hopefully will have better depth by the end of the window, with Europea
  9. Everton’s recruitment over the past few years has been shabby, but a midfield of Allan, Gomes and Doucoure is very good on paper, and so far today showing it’s worth as well. I don’t think they’ll be as poor as recent seasons as a lot seem to think, although I still think they are lacking at the back, and could do with a striker to support Calvert-Lewin
  10. 3 wins I can think of at least in the past few years, including last term. Won’t be easy but is definitely winnable
  11. Relegation battle, Mendy is a league 1 player, Newcastle are better than us Dominant, professional, clean sheet. Things to work on, but very pleased with that. Baggies need to strengthen as do we. How many opening day premier league wins have we had in recent years! After a shite 2020 all round, let’s just enjoy today and appreciate whilst we obviously need to strengthen, our first eleven is actually pretty good! props to Castagne, thought he was excellent 🦊
  12. Wore 21 at Porto and possibly Nice. Changed from 14 last summer, so I think it’s just his preference.
  13. A joy to watch in a blue shirt. Absolutely rapid, terrorising championship full backs for the two or three seasons leading to promotion. Squaring up to Patrick Vieira at the Etihad in the cup replay sticks in the mind as well 🤣. You were great to watch Lloyd, happy retirement 🦊
  14. Liverpool have suspended selling their season tickets and are planning to sell on a match by match basis. Will be reviewed at the end of the year. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/54018069
  15. Do we ban all those who have to look after the vulnerable and high risk as well? Or anyone who has a vulnerable person in their household. Men (deemed higher risk than women), those who are overweight, those of BAME heritage? Those who are diabetic? Are we supposed to all give LCFC our medical history! As someone in their 30s who has spent five months completely alone and just gone back to the frontline of the NHS taking precautions, I have had to make informed choices about how that is possible having been deemed at moderate risk. From my experience, my mental health has suffered massively i
  16. Good to see Ricky P keeping busy!! Not sure about that away shirt though 🤣. That Italy shirt is lovely 🙌
  17. I think we would all want to be challenging for top four and playing regular European football, of course we’d all subscribe to that. There’s absolutely no reason we shouldn’t be fighting for a cup. The trouble is, you need a massive budget to do it or you need to box clever. The established clubs have that financial muscle that unless we received a Manchester City takeover, we are not going to be able to compete with. Therefore we have to box clever and build a different way. It’s a way which can be frustrating at times, but it’s the most sensible and sustainable way. We have done this since
  18. Legia Warsaw also out after losing to Omonia Nicosia. If they negotiate the Europa League qualifiers we could end up against Kapustka 🤣
  19. Celtic out - Last made the group stages in 2017, last went out before the 3rd Qualifying round in 2005. Into the Europa League qualifiers after tonight’s defeat!
  20. I may be wrong but unless they get to the final round of qualifiers, they’ll be out of Europe all together. Strike that, they’ll go into Europa league qualifiers instead, so possibly if they can get through those!!
  21. Bayern may have only lifted the trophy last weekend but second round of qualifiers in progress. Celtic are currently 2-1 with ten minutes left at home to Ferencvaros!!
  22. Maguire now dropped after the verdict! Spectacular work from the FA yet again
  23. He’s been bloody stupid, and rightly getting a lot of stick. It does seem to have been rushed through at incredible speed though which makes me slightly suspicious. Be that as it may I’m astounded he’s been picked for the England squad when you compare it to what went on with Sterling and Gomez, and the stick Maddison got after being sent home from the camp unwell. That forehead obviously carries some gravitas, or more likely preferential treatment.
