  1. I was very nervous about the Wolves game - wanted a win, but was happy with a draw. I think we will nick this though: 2 - 1 to City.
  2. I like him. A lot. I admit my tactical understanding is limited, but even I could see he seemed a bit nervy with the ball at the Atlanta game, then gained in confidence once he scored. On Sunday, I appreciated his runs and thought he often found space very effectively, but he didn't show the sort precision in finishing or pressing capability he's known for when he's on form. That said, he was a more effective threat than Vardy, especially in the first half. I think he shows bags of promise, I'm looking forward to seeing him play again.
  3. I honestly think this is going to be a real challenge. Despite Harry's departure, I've come out of the transfer window and pre-season brimming with confidence, like everyone else i guess, but the reality is that Wolves are one of most direct competitors to challenge for top 6, and while our current team is extraordinarily promising, the Atalanta game suggested that they haven't quite gelled yet (despite the fact that I enjoyed it, I thought we played well, the result was great). I think it'll take a few more games for this squad to really start firing on all cylinders. I so desperately want Leicester to win this and make a statement, especially against Wolves, but i'm not sure we are there yet. Weeks away, perhaps, no more. I think I'm more nervous about this than if we were playing Man City.
  4. I signed up for this today, and it was £30 for 13 months, which seemed reasonable on the basis of the excellent content they have dumped on there so far (the piece on the transfer market was fascinating) - but let's see how it goes. Looks like its more expensive if you try to purchase directly through the app though.
  5. https://www.lcfc.com/news/1299900/exactly-what-we-needed-says-rodgers I'd assumed the proposed Nice game was cancelled months ago or a rumour that never went anywhere, but at the end of the Atalanta match breakdown on the official website, Rodgers says, “We’ve got a game behind closed doors tomorrow which will get a number of the other players up to speed, so I’m very pleased with how it’s gone overall and of course, we have another week to prepare.” I assume that could be Nice. Wonder if we'll find out how they do?
  6. So here's a question: do people think he will play tomorrow night?
  7. Seeing that teamsheet just warmed the cockles of my heart. What a team!
  8. I'm pretty much certain that I've misinterpreted when or how this is applied, but I've just checked the tickets I have bought so far (Atalanta, Wolves and Bournemouth), all of which were print at home, and as far as I can see, there was no additional fee added. Does it not apply to the family stand or something?
  9. I sit in the family stand and for the upcoming Wolves game I paid £6 for the eldest (under 12 rate) and nothing for the youngest (under 10 rate) - category B fixture, same cost as last year. It goes up a bit for category A games, but in general taking the kids is a bargain at Leicester.
  10. Thank the lord! LET'S LOCK THIS THREAD DOWN!
  11. It comes down to more football, and silverware, this year, or more football next year. More football this year.
  12. Well, the great thing about Hamza is that he always makes a massive impact when he plays. And last night was no exception! (Seriously, I do feel for the lad. It was a stupid, reckless tackle, but the key weapon in his arsenal is bold, ambitious tackles, and what's usually amazing, at least last season, is how precise his judgement has become. He flies over, gets the ball and leaves other players gasping but uninjured. This time he got it totally wrong, but when you play like he does, I guess that's sometimes inevitable. Sad for him it was on such a big strage, and sad for the French lad 'cause it looked f_cking horrible.)
  13. Lite membership is relatively cheap at the moment, and worth it I think, even if you are only able to get to a handful of games. As long as you keep an eye on the tickets on sale date, and get on the website as soon as the window for all members opens, you can get tickets easily, even if you don’t have any points. Away tickets are harder to get, but they do sometimes get to all members. Depends on the size of the stadium as much as anything else. If it helps to reassure you, I was doing this all last season for me and my son - and I got tickets for every home game, with no problems. (That means that me and the lad now have a decent wedge of points, but the wife and daughter want to come, so we are back watching the clock for the ‘all members’ sale.)
  14. Right now? This year and next? Wolves.
  15. There was a bit too much cheering on Man City, especially in the second half, for my taste - but from where I was sitting the atmosphere was generally good: Decent amount of singing, quite a lot of (relatively) good humoured goading of the Chelsea lot (especially about Hazard going to Madrid, and I laughed a lot at 'YOU'VE NOT WON LEAGUE ONE!' when they did their usual 'We've won it all' guff). Good round of the Vichai song with scarves up on the 61st minute. It was fine.
