Rodgers really gets it, doesn't he. What a bloke.

 

PS Not hugely important outside our media bubble but he handles the press very well, answers questions with respect, treats us hacks cleverly, gives some good lines. All that helps his profile and getting his messages across. His man management, not just the players, is very very good.

The fact that Matt Piper has on twitter said that Brendan makes him feel like lacing his boots up, despite not having a working knee anymore, says lots about the man management of Rodgers.

Seen a lot of "Leicester have been lucky" posts and tweets. Either about our xg or the fact we've played 8 bottom half teams on our 8 game run. 

 

It's almost like this run doesn't stretch back to March last year...

"Rodgers quipped as he..."

What's their beef with it?

Lots of opposition forums have posts like "Did Leicester really just chant 'Champions of England, you'll never sing that''  to XXXXX?"

FFS, don`t they know that XXX won the Audi cup??? :ph34r:

Subconscious self fulfilling prophecy confirmation bias. They choose what they want to hear. 

In their own minds, they'll never sing that. :cool:

Some have said it sounds like we are singing "champions of England  - you'll never sing that" - which breaks the unwritten rule that you can't sing that to a team that have been Champions of England (even if it was decades ago).

 

However, these people are generally corrected at to the correct words of the song.

We should have changed that after we won the league to "Premier League champions, you'll never sing that."

 

Would have been great for three reasons:

 

1. Would have been accurate for muck like Huddersfield or whoever the hipsters like to remind you won the league. 

2. Would have really pissed off the FoOtbAlL dIdNt StArT iN 1992 melts. 

3. Would have been hilarious to sing to Liverpool at the time. 

ha ha!
 

I mean, even if we were singing "you'll never sing that" to VIlla, technically we're telling them that they will never win the league in the future, regardless of whether they won it a couple of times in the 1890's

Looking forward to roaring that out when we play at Anfield next season

Might have already been posted but a nice piece from Darren Fletcher. Spoke really well on MOTD and actually offered some proper insight when talking about Evans, that I've never seen another pundit do. Not surprising considering he was such an intelligent football. Went from being mocked at Man United to being one of their best players. Had it not been for his terrible time with illness, he'd definitely have been a United great and might even still be playing there.

Good question lol how did we become good 

 

 

Not just a bunch on any players though, even before this season.

A multitude of gifted highly rated youngsters.

WN

JM

BC

HB

YT

 

add to that former league winners

JV

KS

JE

 

Highly rated RP one of the RB in Europe even last season.

 

Under a Top Manager with have seen them all improve.

 

CS out of nowhere is one of the top defenders in the league.

 

Even KI who hasn’t had a sniff looks like a top player at the moment.

 

just to label the above a bunch of players comes across as disingenuous and doesn’t really give them the credit they deserve prior to this season.

Good recruitment and showing you don't always need to spend ridiculous amounts of money to get good players in. Get the right players in, not the expensive ones. Look at Arsenal and Pepe. £72m for a slimmer Adama Traore (pre this season lol

Can I ask on here why some people type crap like above in a mixture of upper case lower case is it vogue or is it someone wanting to be different? Would have the same impact if it was written in SrNDarD tEXT
