Imagine if LCFC win at Anfield..

Wow, then dreams may well be true later down the line. :brendan_still::claudio:

Imagine if Leicester won the PL again I'm wondering if the players would still want to go to bigger clubs just to be like McGuire fighting to avoid the relegation zone ? Can the big clubs be consistent like Leicester when several key players have left the club ?

So Steve Nicol says that Spurs will finish ahead of Leicester because They have better players and Leicester Capitulate.

Steve my boy your looking at the wrong stats when it comes Capitulation, we use the term bottled and Spurs are top when it comes to that.

The fat little nobody is a tit who is stealing a living as another “pundit” that knows jack about any club other than Liverpool

To be honest I would love us to win the league and some other silver wear just to see how the pundits treats us would they finally see that we are a growing club or would we just get ignored

Danny Drinkwater hired a production company to create a video to generate interest in clubs trying to sign him:

What a fall from grace...

 

 

I reckon he'll end up at Salford City, who maybe willing to take him on and pay his wages. Plus Richie Wellens there now who played alongside him at Leicester.

I think we’re still seen as little. A club well run that’s annoying the big teams, but should be patted away.

‘congrats on that miracle title win , it was a fairy story but now get back in your place’ attitude to us.

If we were to win the EL or an FA Cup, we will start to get more notice of being more than this One off freak team. If we were to win the PL say, they can’t ignore us anymore. 2 title wins puts us away from the rest of anyone outside the big 6 and arguably would get us in the same conversation as Spurs.

Salford won't pay the kind of wage he's been getting recently. He'd need to take a massive pay cut wherever he ends up.

My dog could take 2 dumps and be in the same conversation as spurs.

Remind me where we both finished last season. lol

being 14 points ahead in third is epic bottling imo. more so than their rubbish champions league final game. other than that spurs have had no bottling to do.

I don't get the whole narrative about Spurs 'being bottle jobs'.

 

The only thing remotely close was our title winning season with them ending up 3rd rather than runners up. 

 

Other than that they've won about as much as any other club their size over the years in the modern era.

 

Saying they bottled 2016 does a discredit to just how good we were if anything.

If you ask me, I prefer being underestimated. 

 

The last thing we need is teams like Utd, Spurs and Chelsea sitting in deep against us. We struggle to break down the likes of Villa and West Ham at times. 

 

Let teams like Man City and Arsenal keep looking down their nose at us and we will keep shoving 5-2 and 1-0 away wins right up it.

I don't think Your average punter in the street sees us as 'little'. Tbh, most see us as we are. Some kind of funky disrupter.

 

Basically we are perceived as 'best of the rest': Newcastle, Southampton, West Ham etc

 

I'm happy with that

I think the average punter will say we’re a good team atm but we’re not a big club. They will say Newcastle villa Everton Leeds , let alone the top 6 are way bigger than us.

 

I think of we were to win the league again, it would secure our history a bit more as such. It would be a good era in the same way as Forest would be seen as a big club if they came up due to the 70s.

Look how the media get erect over Leeds, despite them doing f all for 20 years, if we got relegated and come back up in 20 years, the media wouldn’t give a crap lol.

In reply to the initial question, to change the media’s overall look on us, for me we’d have to show some signs of an era of trophy’s and strong top 6 finishes rather than just one title win.

Spurs certainly have better attacking players than us, midfield is up for debate and we probably edge them for defenders.

 

We certainly did capitulate last season, no debate about it, and it was a bigger bottlejob than anything Spurs have done.

Players talking to the media to try and push a move here lol

 

Leicester failed with bids for Tarkowski in each of the past two summer transfer windows and the former Brentford man added: “We’ve had two transfer windows now where the club have decided, for whatever reason, that whatever has been offered on the table hasn’t been enough and that’s fine because I signed a contract for four-and-a-half years. So I won’t whinge or not turn up, I just need to deal with it and get on with my football.

 

“But the longer my contract runs down, I feel I gain the control of my career more than Burnley having the control of it, which is what I feel like I need right now.

 

“The last window is obviously a missed opportunity for me. If clubs can’t get the player they want then they will go elsewhere and sign someone else, but I don’t worry too much about it because I’ve got great belief in myself.”

 

“It’s probably quite fair to think that if you’re at a club sitting top of the Premier League, you’ve got a better chance of getting into the squad, but it hasn’t worked out that way. I’m not giving up though, there are just people ahead of me at the moment.”

I reckon he'll be a Leicester player this time next year. At the right price it would make a lot of sense for us too with Big Wes retiring and Jonny Evans getting on. I'd see it as being very similar to when we signed Evans.

The guys a dinosaur, and just like dinosaurs people like this need to be extinct in the F.A. Just goes to show you can have all the pr in the world and all the diversity training but some people clearly will never change their attitudes or their way of thinking. It wasn’t just an unfortunate error it was deep rooted conditioning which needs to be eradicated. There needs to be more diversity and be more inclusive within the F.A.
