  1. These storms we've been having have blown away 25% of my roof. Oof.
  2. https://www.scotsman.com/sport/football/celtic/david-turnbull-deal-could-accelerate-callum-mcgregor-s-celtic-exit-1-4947196 Key bits pertaining to Leicester: "The Scotsman understands there is firm interest in the Scotland midfielder, who celebrates his 26th birthday on Friday, from his former Celtic manager Rodgers as he prepares for his first full season in charge of Leicester City. Rodgers is expected to sanction an offer in the coming weeks for McGregor who is valued at around £10 million by Celtic." "Leicester would appear to stand the best chance of persuading McGregor to make the move now as he would welcome the prospect of furthering his development once more under Rodgers’ tutelage." "While McGregor would certainly not feature on any list of players Lennon would too readily wish to move on, the arrival of Turnbull does make it more palatable for Celtic to contemplate accepting an offer from Leicester which meets their valuation."
  3. I have to say I do forget he's only 22. I know we all wanted him to have kicked on more by now, but he's clearly aware of where he's lacking and still has time to take his game up a level. I hope he's able to do that with us.
  4. A few comments from Gray here: https://inews.co.uk/sport/football/leicester-city-news-demarai-gray-goals-assists-england-u21/ Leicester City news: Demarai Gray gives frank assessment of his progress The young winger is away at the U21 Euros this summer with England and is determined to return to the King Power a better player Demarai Gray admits he must improve, after conceding that his season for Leicester City was no more than “OK”. The winger, who is preparing with England for the European Under-21 Championship, managed just one assist last season and four goals. “It was just OK,” said Gray when asked to critique his own season. “I wanted to achieve more, but at the same time I did improve and learned things about different aspects of my game. “My numbers – my goals and assists – need to improve. I might get a bit of criticism for that but I know it myself. “I’m 22 and am still improving and I have a lot of improving to do. I know it will come.” More responsibility Despite his frank assessment of his own performances at club level, Gray can expect to play a key role in Aidy Boothroyd’s plans for this summer’s tournament in Italy and San Marino. As one of the squad’s senior players, it will be the former Birmingham man’s final chance to help the under-21s claim an elusive major trophy. “I have more responsibility now, but I like that,” he said. “I’ll be helping the young lads who are coming through. They know what is involved but this tournament is different. It is a proper tournament – similar to what you see with the seniors, and a completely different ball game to the qualifiers and friendlies. “One mistake, or moment of sloppiness, and it’s over, the Euros is gone. It’s big. “France is the first game and they are probably a team that is on our level. I see that game as a final, to be honest. “We need to win that game. There is no time to ease your way into this tournament.”
  5. https://tbrfootball.com/leicester-and-newcastle-keen-on-experienced-benfica-defender-andre-almeida/ Says we'd be in for him if Riccy P leaves. He's definitely been linked before.
  6. Would love to hear some recommendations!
  7. 'Close thread' when someone doesn't like the player or think the source is worthy enough.
  8. Fair play Ronny. Excellent hattrick. Swiss a bit unlucky really.
  9. The fabled VAR controversy in full effect I'm not even sure that's a pen
  10. Good free kick, but it wasn't a foul and the keeper and wall were poor. Ronny just seems to will things into happening
  11. It means no worries For the rest of your days It's our problem free Philosophy Mbwana Samatta
  12. I'm off to Vancouver in less than a month and have sorted feck all apart from flights and where I'm staying with a friend. We're planning to take a couple of trips out of the city (and maybe stay 1 or 2 nights in a couple of different places). Other than Victoria and Whistler, does anyone have any recommendations?
  13. Monaco stalling for the best deal according to Tanner. Not really telling us anything we didn't already know/expect. https://www.leicestermercury.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/latest-leicester-citys-pursuit-youri-2942720
  14. Decent player, would be good cover for Vardy especially at 5m and seems like a much better option and character than Slimani or Nacho. It's a yes from me.
