The "do they mean us?" thread pt 2

I like how we’re apparently trying to create a rivalry when there’s mostly Spurs fans underneath the original tweet saying it’s very possible to dislike us.

 

Seems that’s always the first thing fans jump to now, “stop trying to force a rivalry with us”, saw it with some Villa fans yesterday as well.

 

Literally never heard a Leicester fan care about Aston Villa. Maybe in the 90s but in this era cant remember a single Leicester fan saying anything negative about Villa. Most of us are completely indifferent towards them.

This is were tv producers need to start getting on at these pundits. shef united had it early in the season with them being accused of being a long ball team. They do zero research and just peddle out generic crap and commonly held perceptions. They’re paid good money as experts to come on these shows and give expert opinion, yet they are doing neither. It seems to be only football that gets away with it, imagine the election run in if political commentators were constantly referring to the parties old manifestos from previous elections as if they were current. It’s lazy, disrespectful and taking their employers and viewers for mugs. 

 

You would think anyone who has spent 15-20 years in the same profession would be expert in their field. Football seem to be the exception.

Well actually he says that it doesn’t feel like we dominate possession but the stats back up that we do. Listen I think Owen is a cretin of the highest order but that’s actually a compliment because he’s saying that our attack is so fast and ruthless that we make it count unlike when Puel was in charge it was sideways football for 90 minutes!

I’m sure a lot don’t bother with it away from training and playing and barely watch any football or just watch the big games/teams and form their opinions from watching man city dominate a team and assume that’s how that team plays, sitting deep trying to hit the front man. Or when a team has a bit of success just assume that’s how they are playing seasons after. I remember after O’Neil left we were still ‘dangerous from set pieces’ though we hadn’t caused anyone any significant problems for years.

I shouldn’t worry about that. After the Martin O’Neill era we were a team: “good at corners and set pieces” for about 15 years. Despite hardly ever scoring from any of them.

Craig Butley and Steve Nicol are arguing over whether the title is over hahaha. ****ing hell why are there so many ex Liverpool players in the football media. It's like any player who pulled on  that red shirt is wheeled out as a pundit. Even Don Hutchinson is on our airwaves.

 

Cliff notes: Burley is saying 8 points is not impossible to claw back as proved by last season. Nicol is saying Leicester are no Man City so the league is over for all intent and purposes.

 

 

He is spot on, we are no Man city, we are 6 points ahead of them, therefore at this moment in time we are the better team.

I really would love to win it just so we can stick it up all these twats arses.

This is what a lot of people do not realise. to many of them it is a job, something they happen to have a talent for and can get paid huge amounts to do. I am sure that most of us come 5pm (or whatever time your shift finishes) do not give a second thought to whatever it is we do at work. It is our time off to do with what we please. Would an accountant go home and then spend their whole weekend doing tax calculations for fun, or a shop worker set up loads of shelves to stack because they miss being at work?

Let that sink in. 

 

Man shouldn't ever have gotten on TV. 

Love that Vardy is now 4 goals off 20 in a season for the 3rd time.. something Owen never managed

No. There's an YouTube interview where we're mentioned in passing though.

Too many people take a bit of banter at games as forcing a rivalry. 
 

Football fans can be a bit weird when it comes to rivalries, like with Villa, they accuse everyone of begging a rivalry as if you have to be something special to be their rivals when their main rivals are Birmingham City.

Craig Burley is pretty spot on, there is a arrogance about Liverpool ex players and 90% of there fan base.

 

Nicol scuff at the fact we only have Kasper, Vardy, Evans in the satrtting 11 who have won the league and they forget to mention fuchs, Albrighton and Morgan all title winners also in the squad.

Just goes to show...that fans,pundits,ex-players alike ,might be wrong und totally off tangent when asking,sometimes demanding

that they should be Part & Partial of various discipline,Football Organisation committees,because they... "Understand" the game more  Plus its indiscrepencies and where its at..!!   

Owen,Merson,Sutton, and a few more Top of their game while playing....

Brain farts in Front of the Camera while giving Wise worldly opinions..!!!

I personally feel we're more on the periphery of a title race rather than in the thick of it. If we beat Norwich on Saturday and get at this defensively suspect Man City side then we'll open a 9pt gap on third place and any slip up by Liverpool it means we're far and away the best placed side to take advantage. 

 

I think it's best we make a call if we're genuine title contenders after the Liverpool match on Boxing Day but anyone who completely dismisses our chances is a fool.
