  1. I am from Leicester originally but I had never seen this:- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sekLKU2BUiQ "The Girl With Brains In Her Feet" is set in Leicester... Filmed in 1997 but set in 1972... It is a weird kind of "Kes" (substituting Leicester for Barnsley). The aspiring athlete girl goes to the fictional St Bradgates School with a view of Old John! ...she uses the hill for training (and also the odd bit of nookie at the top - next to the monument). Full marks for the authentic Leicester references throughout - you get:- - Red Leicester Cheese - Melton Mowbray Pork Pie - Leicester Council Houses - Leicester Mercury - Leicester Market - Going Skeggy for your holidays - People calling each other Me Duck - Saffron Lane Athletics Track (where I attended my Lancaster Boys Sports Days) ...it is actually better than I expected. Although having a teenage female lead - it dwells rather too long for my tastes on the murky subject of menstruation.
  2. Further to previous parking inquiry - on another thread it says there is parking at the stadium for £6... ...where abouts is this please?
  3. I hadn't realised that the Tigers are playing at 1.30pm I am driving up from near London and was going to park at the car park round the back of the Tigers Ground (used to be £5 all day the last time I visited Leicester). We will be arriving at about 1.30pm - so I guess all the parking will be used be the rugby fans... Any alternative parking suggestions?
  4. Albrighton needs to take a long hard look at his play in the last 5 minutes of the game.... I know he is not a defenfer but some of his decision making was very poor... ...gave possesion away on the right touch line needlessly a few of minutes before the peno. Anyone know what Perez's beef was about when it all kicked of after the final whistle?
  5. Thanks I just made that my PC Desktop Wallpaper.... ...two of my favourite things The Beatles and Leicester!
  6. I got banned from the Fighting C*ck the other day..... ...because I pointed that whilst their new stadium is fine and dandy their team is not actually very good. Never thought I could bring myself to support a German team against an English one.... ...but how I laughed when that 7th goal went in.
  7. What a great end to the weekend... I just went on the Fighting Cock to guage their reactions.... Got called a **** - made my day!
  8. When my old Dad worked at British Gas East Midlands HQ in De Montfort Street in the 70s he knew a Division One referee.... This referee said that Souness was the most hated player in football... Constantly swearing and mouthing off etc - they all hated him.
  9. I only live 20 miles from Luton in Hertfordshire - can't get BBC Three Counties Sport on FM though - bloody annoying!
  10. MCKTV down for me today - son wanted to watch the Man U game but coming up with an error on loading? Noticed yesterday for all the named sports channels didn't work - enventually found EPL 0 was showing the game. Are they doing work or something?
  11. Schmeichel goes into the box for the late corner.... ....and we play it short and lose possession. Kasper was rightfully fuming. I'd love to know our goals per corner ratio since Maddison started taking them... Has a Leicester team ever scored less from corners?
  12. Mine is only SD - maybe only a local issue in Hertfordshire.
  13. I am watching the game via Virgin TV and ITV - picture keeps breaking up - is it just my setup.... ....worse than MCKTV on Kodi for the Leicester games!
  14. Great performance today - I really like this guy.... Saw him pre-season at Cambridge and he looked dodgy - seems to have improved greatly since then.... ....but anyone else think he could have thrown himself at the Bournemouth goal and got it away? Can't help thinking he was too afraid of clattering himself on the post.
  15. u21 v Cambridge? ....The way this was said does he mean the whole team will be u21? I have a ticket and have taken the afternoon of work for this - will be bit dissapointed if no stars feature.
  16. I am with my son and his pal - so no drinking for me either... Will get a McDonald's before the game as I see there is one very close to the Abbey Stadium... Probably not get away with leaving the car parked in Maccy D's for the game.... ...Anyone know what are the residential roads like around there for parking?
  17. I am grateful for your help earlier in the day.... ...but I still say being locked into Facebook as a communication channel is a huge misjudgement on the part of MCKTV.
  18. So if you had joined 1000 years ago using a stone tablet.... .....you'd still be recommending that method of communication.
  19. Well I will pay someone else next time... FACEBOOK SUCKS ...I am not talking about getting Virgin or Sky levels of service - just a simple email (which would cost them nothing).
  20. The VPN is not fixed - the email says so? I got about 10 minutes into the Leicester game before I had to start using a VPN. I think you'll find that am I far from being alone in not wanting to join Facebook (the reasons are plentiful and well documented on the internet). You seem to think I am being irrational in not wanting to do Facebook? It wouldn't be so bad if MCKTV could be more consistent in their communication methods. They sent an email in advance of the update last weekend (that didn't happen in the end). This weekend they send nothing until after all the Saturday games and 10 minutes before the Leicester game. How difficult is to send an email as well as putting stuff on Facebook? They must lose so many customers through poor communication. In the past I have to waits weeks for a renewal invoice. I'm signed up for a couple more months with MCKTV - doubt I will renew unless things improve. I don't get your argument at all.... If MCKTV had originally been based on communication via Teletext.... .....would you be saying that they should still only be sending communications via Teletext because that's the way they have always done it? I am a paying customer - they need to start working on their customer service.
  21. ...and to cap it all - after spending a good two hours this morning faffing trying to get MCKTV to work.... ....the VPN issue is still not fixed. Here's an idea - before the next attempted fix - send out an email in advance with clear instructions.
  22. Yes I got the email at about 11.50am (whilst I was in the middle of desperately trying to sort things out) My service has been down from Saturday (perhaps longer) - why couldn't the email have been sent earlier? I didn't need facebook to sign up to MCKTV. MCKTV need to realise that a lot of people boycott Facebook for a variety of reasons. IMPORTANT UPDATES NEED TO BE SENT BY EMAIL. I got an email warning in advance about the Server change last weekend that didn't happen.... ....So they should have sent an email earlier this time.
  23. OK got it working with 5 minutes to spare..... Thanks for all your help Jammie Instead of choosing "MckTV Repo.zip" as per the old instructions.... You choose the zip with videoadd-on in the name instead.... Only found this solution by pure luck trying things at random Why can't MCKTV send emails about stuff like this ? Lots of people don't want anything to do with Facebook.
