  1. They are absolutely fvcking brilliant, all three of them. I think my wallet just screamed, though.
  2. I thought one thing that was striking was how p1ssed off with each other they were - Chilwell and Maguire had a shouting match at one point about ‘where the fvck am I supposed to pass it, there’s no-one there,’ etc, etc. That occurred a few times. I know how the game works on the pitch and how players speak to one another during play, but for me, what’s missing more than anything else is that sense of connection across the pitch - that players know and trust each other well enough to anticipate where the ball needs go, what sort of runs they will make. And its not just getting it to Vardy. At different points, they don’t work like a particularly well functioning unit, and don’t seem to trust each other enough. Hence the mistakes. Vague stuff, I know, and hard to fix, but, in terms of man management, I think that’s as big a challenge for BR as well as dealing with the balance of power in the changing room.
  3. King Power is such an evocative term, for Leicester in particular. I know the connection to Richard III is inadvertent, but its such a good phrase. Leicester - King Power - Fvck yeah! I’m sure if King Power actually traded in the UK I would feel less keen on it, though - it would be more like having the Bargain Booze Stadium. Also, I never went to Filbert Street
  4. General sale for these tickets opens at 6pm tonight UK time (in just over an hour), and there are several hundred left. As long as you are on the site and ready to go then, you will get tickets with no problems. Alternatively just give them a call - they may even speak to you now. EDIT: if you want to maximise the efficiency of your browsing time and get right in there when the window opens, the only ones together I can see are a cluster of available seats at the very back of G1. Otherwise its lots of singles dotted around. Will be a decent atmosphere there I imagine. Near the drum!
  5. I noticed hardly any booing - there was a little moment of something when Nacho came on, but it wasn't the barrage of boos he has faced in the past - and then I suppose there was some of the usual the usual grumbling at timid passing or mistakes. I try not to do muchof that, because fundamentally I'm there to support the lads, but I think you have to accept that sort of moaning as part of the pantomime of the game.
  6. On the LCFC site, currently being discussed on the pre-match pint. Let's all look out for him tonight!
  7. To win more than 50% of games is pretty much what I'm after.
  8. I honestly believe that now is the time when everything will come together and we will fvcking crush them... ...but I honestly believed that about the Spurs game as well!
  9. Using the tunes from the Muppets, I like: Tielemans! Do-dooh-do-doo-doo! Tielemens! Do-dooh-doo-doo! Tielemans! Do-dooh-do-doo-doo! He'll nick the ball from you! Repeat indefinitely. I appreciate it has the disadvantage that its boring and unimaginative, but its simple enough that it can be easily picked up.
  10. I honestly feel like Vardy is more effective coming on as a sub than starting at the moment. (I have no stats to back up whether this is true of not, though.)
  11. The atmosphere was alright where we were yesterday (family stand, so 'alright' is the best you can hope for). We could have done with a bit more more singing, and there wasn't loads of booing when Ghezzal and Nacho came on - although there was still more than I would like. I'd say all in all it was better and more positive than the Cardiff or Southampton games, I suppose because we expected to win those whereas man u was a more uncertain prospect. And frankly, the football was pretty good yesterday to my eye. But after Christmas when the Cardiff fans started singing 'Your support is fvcking sh1t,' they weren't completely wrong. That was the low point for me.
  12. I'll hold my hands up: I'm precisely one of those johnny-come-lately fans who has only started coming to King Power in the last few years, and only I've only started coming regularly to every home game this year (the kids have got really into it, which made the difference). I love the atmosphere, but I feel like I could be doing more to support the lads - I just don't know all the songs. So bearing in mind all the discussion about support on FT, this thread is about the lyrics the classic songs, the ones we've always sung at KP. What are classics - the songs we need to know and to pass on to the next generation? So far I've got: Leicester boys are we, Proud of our city (or is it pride of our city?) We'll follow the lads, through good times and bad, We won the Premiere League. Vichai had a dream, To build a football team, He came from Thailand now he's one of our own, We play from the back, We counter-attack, Champions of England, you made us sing that, Oh-oh-oh. Come on Leicester boys, Make some fvcking noise, Go wild, wild wild (or is it come on, come on?) And that's pretty much it...
  13. Its worth watching Sunderland Til I Die on Netflix to see where booing your own team takes you... They had other problems, of course, but once the players confidence is shot, you can go right down the sh1tter, regardless of the manager.
  14. Sorry to make it about Puel again, but ultimately while I do think he has lots of positive qualities, and I’m still broadly behind him, it is true that he’s (1) not great at public speaking, and (B) under him, home performances especially are frequently poor. Which, of course, if you are a fan, is pretty much all you see. Is it him? The players? The relationship between him and the players? The training regimen? The sometimes, let’s say ‘unsupportive,’ atmosphere at KP? Whatever it is, and its probably all of the above and more, some sort of change is needed.
  15. The booing was definitely for the player - Madison got a round of applause as he went off, then when Ghezzal came on the booing started. Same for Nacho as far as I could tell. If it was for the decision, presumably people would just boo, boo and boo again. This felt personal, sadly, and I’m sure how the pair of them took it.
