  1. We enter the field believing the hype and play like it's an exhibition game to show off how wonderful we are but we've forgotten to tell the opposition.
  2. What's significant for Spurs and Arsenal will be pocket money / petty cash to Man City. Seems like a pragmatic gesture knowing they'll probably moan but accept it where as anything else will result in long drawn out legal wrangle.
  3. So many great goals to choose from they're all winners for me.
  4. Daily Star quick off the mark - https://www.dailystar.co.uk/sport/football/arsenal-next-manager-allegri-simeone-24058132 Brendan Rodgers Reports suggested Arsenal turned down the chance to interview Rodgers about their vacant managerial position following Arsene Wenger's departure in 2018. They must surely regret it. The Northern Irishman joined Leicester in February 2019 and has since taken them to impressive heights, sitting third in the Premier League table with three games to play and also reaching the FA Cup final. Appointing Rodgers would be a no-brainer for Arsen
  5. I guess I should have put Premier League in the title.

  7. I'm not disagreeing with anyone's view of the owners I've criticised them myself on the lack of LCFC related visuals outside and inside the stadium with too much emphasis on King Power. But I'm way to old to get involved now. I'm trying to be Devil's Advocate and offering a way forward. They already engage with the FT and the Supporters Group, I'm sure they don't want to involve lots of groups. Surely it would be better for fans to influence the FT to achieve what they want as Supporters Trusts are seen by the Football hierarchy as the official communication channels.
  8. If enough people joined, the board is voted on by 1 member 1 vote. So that's no excuse.
  9. Well join the FT and become one of the negotiators then if you feel this strongly. Moaning on FoxesTalk will get people nowhere.
  10. The FT are the officially recognised supports organisation for contact with the Club, FA and are part of the FFA. Trusts themselves are seen as the way forward by those that want to see change. People are complaining that our Trust is not doing enough so I repeat if those people want the FT to do more then they should join and change it from within. Maybe Union FS would have a better chance of influencing the Club with the changes they want if some of their members were also in the FT. I'm not the one complaining I'm just offering a way forward for those that are.
  11. Quite as they all serve different functions but if people want the Foxes Trust to be more dynamic and to push harder for change then they should join it and change it from within. I suspect part of the problem is, as we've seen on here in the SL thread that people are reluctant to be critical of our owners who are by most people's view way above other owners in their ownership of the club and it's supporters. But there are areas where they lag behind other clubs.
  12. Or maybe members of Union FS and others with strong feelings should join Foxes Trust and propel them from within considering their recognised status as a Trust in football and the FFS.
  13. Should rename it Smug Bastards Post Here!
  14. Is Jonny Evans underrated?

  16. I gave up during the free subscription period. I also gave up on Tanner's book about our Championship win it was 90% just a rerun of the match reports with very little added. I've read several others on the win and they were all significantly better and way more interesting.

  18. Yet I know and had to live with it. These have never won it, a sad looking list. Leicester City - 1949, 1961, 1963, 1969. A record of 4 finals without a win. Lost to a different club each time. Queen’s Park - 1884, 1885. Lost to Blackburn Rovers both times. The only Scottish club to reach the final of the FA Cup. Birmingham City - 1931, 1956. Rivals Aston Villa have won 7 times. Crystal Palace - 1990, 2016. Lost to Manchester United both times. First .time was in a replay. Lost at both the Old and New Wembley Stadium. Watford - 2019. Bi
  19. If we drop out of the top 4 we'll be forever known as bottlers and if we thought this season was bad with the constant reference to our collapse last year well hide behind the sofa because it'll be torture. Then there's the FA Cup lose that and we'll be record breakers 5 Finals 5 Defeats. Hopefully the thought of these will motivate them to succeed.
  20. “The Premier League has today confirmed the dates for the Summer 2021 Transfer Window. “The window will open for 12 weeks from 9 June and will close at 23:00 BST on 31 August. This will align with other European leagues.” The Premier League season is due to start on the weekend of August 14 and conclude on May 22, 2022.

We had it at Wembley and it was great to hear the noise whenever there was a shot or tackle. Everyone is excited to get supporters back.” 13:53JORDAN BLACKWELL Steve Bruce? “I think Steve has done an outstanding job. He’s limited in terms of the budget he has to spend on players but he has had to go in and organise. Newcastle is an incredible club, the fanbase,
  22. I'm sure a lot of effort went into these so the kids deserve some attention let's see you all voting. Up For The Cup: Vote Now For The Winning Entry!

  23. Well again it depends if he's just 'Managing' the Academy as I described then I think it's down to Rudkin hopefully with input from Rodgers or whoever is the Manager to recruit the coaches, lay down the blue print and monitor the progress/success of the coaching. All I can do is use myself as an example I managed a Product Development Team of Software, Electronic and Mechanical Engineers, my role was to manage and facilitate on behalf of those engineers who were way more qualified than me and earned way more than me because the business didn't want to lose any of their development
  24. Well I've seen so many businesses promote their most skilled assets into management roles that are totally alien to them and they lose the benefit of their skills mostly just to give them a pay rise. Coaches need to be 100% focussed on coaching if they're bogged down by administrative roles and solving related problems then their talents are wasted. We obviously don't know this guys Job Description but I think it's wrong to assume he's not capable of doing whatever he's doing. If players are not being developed properly then we've either got crap coaches, they're being
  25. Depends what his role is. If it's managing the Academy re organisation, administration, education, player welfare, community interaction etc then he doesn't necessarily need to be a football coach just to have and understanding and affinity to the coaching job. Then he needs to be first and foremost a good communicator and manager. As long as there are great coaches his role could be down to being a facilitator so that the coaches can concentrate on coaching and not distracted by all those other things I've mentioned..
