  1. They get stuff off here, you can see something posted on here a day or two later it’s on the merc website. We’re doing their job for them we have more people search other sources.

  3. Financial justification is obviously not a deal busting reason otherwise they would not have announced their decision to extend, maybe cashflow, maybe Vichai's passing, maybe on reflection they thought they'ed wait until the training ground was completed or something else but they have obviously costed it and proved it's justifiable so all our calculations are pretty pointless although interesting. Their biggest concern seemed to be around affecting the atmosphere.
  4. Not forgetting £20k per box per season plus extra entertaining suites.

  6. I believe also it was the Ipswich Chairman or ex who campaigned to bring in the points deduction.
  7. Or get a young guy in who's willing to wait a learn along side him and Vardy for a year and give him a 1 year contract. Not that I'm a big fan just a thought that might apply to any older striker.
  8. Did you 'boogie on down' at Leicester's Topps nightclub in the 1980s? What can you tell us about the venue? ByJane Goddard 10:00, 24 MAY 2019 Topps nightclub, Leicester, in 1984 We feel sure these two fabulous photos from the 1980s will bring back many memories of clubbing days (and nights) for some of our readers. The photos, sent in by reader Jeff Boyes, were taken at the opening night of Topps nightclub in 1984. We would love to find out more about this nightclub, having failed to unearth any information on our archive. Where was it located, how long did it survive as a nightclub and what is the building now, if it is still standing? Judging by the way the staff are dressed, with the men sporting dickie bows, the club seems to have been aiming for an up-market look. The other photo shows what we assume is the DJ’s booth. Bar staff at Topps nightclub, in Leicester, in 1984 Do you recognise any of the people on either of the photos? Why not share your memories with our readers?

  9. In case you missed it... The Liberal Democrats have begun the process of choosing their next leader. The party's current leader, Sir Vince Cable, announced in March that he would step down after the local elections. But in a statement on Friday - following the PM's announcement of her departure date - Sir Vince confirmed he would be handing over the reins to his successor on 23 July.
  10. For the last ten years or so I’ve always tried to find an independent candidate that I could vote for but it’s very hard as there is always very little choice and often very little info on the candidates. i posted earlier in this thread about the lack of info on any of the candidates in the euros

  13. ...and one undeserved loss. 7. Swindon, 1993 Perhaps Leicester deserved a spot of luck in 1994 after what happened to them in their play-off final against Swindon one year previously. This seven-goal Wembley showdown between Foxes and Robins is often cited as the greatest promotion contest of all time – and it’s easy to see why. After a quiet first half, Swindon headed into the break with a slender 1-0 lead thanks to a goal from player-manager Glenn Hoddle. But the Robins started the second period with a bang. Less than 10 minutes after the restart, the Wiltshire side were 3-0 to the good and coasting towards the top flight – only for Leicester to stage one of the comebacks of the season. Well, almost. Julian Joachim’s 57th-minute effort put wind in the Foxes’ sails, and quickfire strikes from Steves Walsh and Thompson drew them level with 20 minutes left to play. A thrilling tie hung in the balance, but sadly it was a contentious penalty that decided it six minutes from time. After their almighty fightback, Leicester’s top-flight ambitions were derailed when goalkeeper Kevin Poole was harshly adjudged to have fouled Steve White in the area. Paul Bodin stepped up and buried the spot-kick that fired the Robins to a new nesting ground: the Premier League.
