Tough call for Arnautovic. Play under dictators, getting rich but in a half empty soulless stadium for a team barely anyone has heard of or care about.

 

Or go to China.

"Craig: Imagine if Burton still make the final... that would stop Leicester fans from claiming the biggest shock in football history!"

 

Getting fed up of this 'Lil 'ol Leicester crap everytime an underdog grabs some limelight.

 

From the BBC

We don't actually claim it was the biggest shock in football history.

 

It was the media.

Bit of inconsistency from the FA because Deeney didn't get banned for sticking two fingers up at Chelsea fans last season but he has been done for comments made about the officials after our game at Bournemouth.

 

Austin wasn't charged after his famous "park life " rant in November .

 

Maybe they need to get their banning quotas up !!

 

Or maybe it wa one naughty action too much .

Historically no. PSG are these days but most French fans don't recognise them as that. Financially they can blow most teams out out of the water but it's like saying Manchester City are the biggest club in England.

Exactly. We all know Wolves are the biggest! :sweating:

Didn't Kante want to go to Marseille instead of us initially?

Yeah, I remember that.  We bid a bit more than Marseille but the player wanted to go there.

 

I remember the Marseille president sneering at us saying that Marseille do not go in for the same calibre players as Leicester City and basically pulled out.

 

That turned out well for him lol

I thought that second one was when their scouts recommended Mahrez in January 2015? Their president insisted Mahrez couldn't be a worthwhile target if he played for Leicester. The egg on his face should feed an entire village at this point

Hmm... In my mind it was the Kante deal but I could be wrong.  Can't find any corroboration online for either.

 

Can anybody clear this up?

It was Mahrez: https://www.francefootball.fr/news/Comment-l-om-a-snobe-mahrez/614311

 



" Do you really think that players Leicester have today have their place in the OM project that is ours? In short, in order to save time, I would like to say that we try to be professional and qualitative in terms of recruitment and that therefore the probability that we take players in this way is zero. "

I'm not having PSG as some giant. They have quite literally done nothing in Europe that we haven't. Next tier down for me until they prove it in Europe.

They're a financial giant, that is all.

A bit like Man City really, recently had a huge financial investment and as such are now a "big" club in their domestic league but still yet to reach the heights expected in the European competitions.

Can't stand West Ham but Felipe Anderson is great to watch. Fantastic player.

Granit Xhaka is an absolute pretender. I think that every time I see him play. Great athleticism but that's about it.
