  1. Whisky

    Checked it out on Street View. Used to work on Granby St years ago when it was a Premier shop! Will check it out! Wish I'd a) seen this sooner and b) worked out it was Metro Wines in Syston(?). Tried to go there today - parked up and walked past where it should be about 3 times. Very sad to see it go. Any chance they're simply moving elsewhere?

    Come home Lloyd!
  3. Whisky

    Any good pubs in town for Whiskey? My oldest friend is home from New York this week and we're going out on Friday night. He's a much bigger Whiskey fan than me but we're both willing to try as much of a range as possible. If they're also showing the football that's a plus!
  4. Musa - Opinions so far

    He couldn't even outshine Portsmouth's Under 23s last night. That's why he's not getting any time in the first team.

    Good riddance!
  6. The "nonsensical things that Leicester do" thread

    Baffled by this attitude to be honest. Yeah, he was only here for 1 season and 33 games. But he arrived here a superstar in his own right after a decade at Inter Milan and Real Madrid before that, plus his international career, to come to a newly promoted side for an inevitable relegation fight. That showed a lot of character and he quickly became a fan favourite for it. Plus, he clearly fell in love with the club and fans, and got a great reaction from the crowd when he came out. He was available this weekend and the club asked him to come - can't see any problem whatsoever.
  7. Absolute cvnts of our time Pt.MXXVI

    Facebook. They just banned me from posting absolutely anything for 3 days because I said, in a debate with a religious idiot, that since their holy book says over 100 times that I should be murdered for not believing that book, that that book, God, Prophet and believer should **** off. Apparently, Facebook values religious zealotry and incitement to murder over the freedom of speech to criticise said religion.
  8. Thailand international Chanathip Songkrasin

    That's got to be my favourite reason to sign someone ever. Gerrimin.

    Thanks for the heads up. It's 8,998 left now.

Has only played the full 90 minutes 4 times though - scored in 3, assisted in 1 and MOTM in 2. If Barnsley can keep him playing well at this level for the whole season, with Claude's record of trusting youth I can see Harvey starting for us early next season. With Claude at the helm, absoflippinlutely!

    I miss the "Funny Things Schlupp Does" thread. Come home Jeff.
  12. Crazy Stat. time!

    Comforting stats from yesterday's defeat: We won the Premier League by a margin 5 times bigger than Man City's two title wins put together. Since their triumph in 2014 they've spent £519m (half a billion fvcking quid!!) trying to replicate it, and have so far only won the League Cup. They finished 14 points behind us in 2016.

I'm pretty sure that's more than double what we have spent on players in the last 133 years. We've turned them over twice in the last 18 months because they were arrogant enough think we shouldn't be beating them. Pepe has sorted them out since last December's riot and has finally got his £400m playing the sort of football that the pundits orgasm over. Did people really expect us to thrash them again? They are the embodiment of financial unfair play and are definitely, definitely NOT being investigated by UEFA about it yet. Claude's barely had a month with his squad and can't make any real major changes until the next transfer window or two. So he has to make do with what he's got. As it happens I felt we weren't bad yesterday; defensibly strong for 45 minutes until their hammer blow opener (worst time to concede a goal), were positive going forward and hit the post 60 seconds before De Bruyne's worldie. Not to mention Kompany bafflingly being allowed to remain on the pitch - we were quite unlucky to get at the very least a point out of the game. Personally I'm optomistic about Puel's overall effect on us so far.
  14. The "do they mean us?" thread

    But then he would have turned Arsenal into a success - well, if their board had any money to give him in between moving their cash about in order to buy Everton - and Arsenal fans are insufferable enough. Even the thought of that disgusts me.
