  1. In my experience the biggest reason for queues are people waiting till they get to the front to actually look at what is on offer
  2. It hasn’t adversely affected the big six in previous seasons. Think we’re clutching at straws
  3. Sadly in the time Matty has been injured the club has transformed beyond all recognition. James at his best, pre injury, isn’t good enough to get into this side. James after 2+ years injured won’t be anywhere near the level he was and so is even further behind the standard. He needs time and games; something we just can’t offer him.
  4. Goalkeeper metrics and data is still a huge area of contention in the stats world with most people still trying to agree what precisely they’re measuring and why https://statsbomb.com/2018/12/introducing-goalkeeper-radars/
  5. I wouldn’t say negative. The club and Brendan have recognised the need for additional goals if reports of a 30-50 million winger are to be believed. My point is that goals is the one area our recruitment has struggled since returning. Of Ulloa, Okazaki, Musa, Slimani and Ihanacho only Ulloa can be seen as bringing any form of goal theat. That’s an awful lot of money for very little return in terms of goals.
  6. The issue we’ve had since returning to the premier league is buying in goals. Vardy and Mahrez we’re already here and contributed the lions share. I’m impressed with the signings we’ve made but breaching the top six will need more that just Vardy contributing.
  7. Made a run for it years ago. Still lurked to see some discussions on the football, but sadly all too often it became a parody of itself and lost much of the humour it once boasted. Some of the views ceased to be intentionally ironic trolling and became something more unpleasant altogether.
  8. Another nomination for Yaxley Lennon. Utter irredeemable ****.
  9. I imagine it all comes down to whether that mistake causes the individual to alter their behaviour and outlook. If the opinion of those affected that they haven’t then I can understand a reluctance to re-open a dialogue. From purely a listeners perspective I can discern no difference in style and tone.
  10. I think Stringer and the sports team deserve a lot of credit for transforming the output radio Leicester. The club is covered like never before and that is due to the ambition of Stringer. The downside to this expansion in coverage has been Ian’s lack of a journalistic background which has resulted in him attempting to create a story rather than allowing one to develop. That ruthless ambition which has seen us benefit from broader coverage also sees us exposed to a desire to make everything seem huge and epic via prepenned off the cuff comments which just add to the sense of a lack of authenticity and sincerity
  11. I realise it is less ridiculous than assuming a man who has never expressed any racist view in over 30 years in broadcasting is actually a secret racist whose mask has suddenly slipped and exposed him as a horrible bigot.
  12. The context for him was royal baby. Listen to the interview.
  13. But he wasn't. He didn't know whose baby it was. As soon as he did he took it down and apologised. Very good interview on LBC https://www.lbc.co.uk/radio/presenters/james-obrien/danny-bakers-first-interview-since-being-sacked-by/
