Brighton 1-2 LCFC - Post Match Thread

Hardly bottlers my friend; if I remember right they lost a player in the Cup final in the first 15 minutes and there were no subs in those days and typically only 15 man squads. Playing champions Tottenham on a big Wembley pitch with 10 men was always going to be difficult. The "ice kings" were a great side who just came up short.

Len Chalmers - the original 'chopper'. Forget Ron Harris.

 

The 'ice kings' refers to the 62-63 season following the signing of Stringfellow in the summer of 62 and the introduction of Gibson proper, who had only made one previous appearance due to national service. Prior to this, the cup final against Spurs meanwhile was jeopardised by the loss of right back Chalmers after 20 mins who in a pre-substitution era was forced hobble ineffectually up and down the wing having broken his ****ing leg. Bottlers?

The players deserve immense credit as you say and the match thread warriors can hopefully reflect, grab a dictionary and learn the meaning of perspective.

Not a chance - if they were capable of that level of self-control, they'd not be on the match thread, spewing their invective.

Willie Orr was arguably one of City's greatest ever managers. But how many of us have ever even heard of him? Unlike Ranieri, he wasn't a one-season-wonder.

And still around to manage Scotland in the 1974 World Cup. Amazing longevity. :ph34r:

At the start of May they were 2nd (briefly 1st in mid-April) and in the FA Cup final. Then lost their last 4 league games and the Cup final. Bottlers.

Some bottlers had a squad of 15 for the season and would possiblly have done the double but for injuries . No resting of players dreadful pitches  tackling out of this world  league must harder  to win  how many modern players could cope

He’s injured and not really proven he deserves to start. How can you MOAN? We are second? In fact you’ve had a bit of a ‘mare here dude. We are ... wait for it ... just a little longer ... SECOND in the EPL. Can you honestly not see that as over achieving? We are Leicester with a Leicester budget. Relax , grab some weed and more importantly some bloody perspective! I’m bored of reading posts of this Ilk now. 

Hes only a poor possum..bless him..:twitch:

It would appear that my attempt at mirth has missed the target.

 

Of course they weren't bottlers. Also, those last 4 league games were all away from home and, along with the Cup final, were crammed into a very short period of time.

Are you forgetting our incredible run to 2nd place in 1929? :ph34r:

Even I can't remember that and suspect you can't, but I do remember 1963 . For the first time in my life I lived in a city with a top league club, Leicester. Finally 4th I think and maybe favorites in the cup final. Its worth reminding oneself this season isn't a season yet , technically its a part season  ( but still keeping many happy at the moment , bless them, One does hope  they realise its all temporary glory right up to reckoning day ). None the less its been wonderful so far, and looks like further improving. I'm feeling very good through Covid as a result and I think and hope its going to get even better on both fronts. I think that's unarguably a reasonable perspective and respects reality.

 

I think in 63 we were top with 5 games to go but 4th this season I would rate a much bigger achievement .

Go on then Webbo, you made the word up - what meaning have you ascribed? :) 

Similar to panaharmonious. Or, looking at it another way, a synonym of contratasphemic.

Depends who it's for. We're approaching the part of the season where the real bias will come out. We'll see.

 

Christ no. The match threads are bad enough without this bollocks rearing it's head again

My first season following Leicester. Yes we were top after the 4-3 home game in April against Man Utd, but our only other win thereafter was the semi final against Liverpool.

 

We lost our last four league games in quick succession which were all away from home. Quite a tall order to get the away victories required in the run up to the final. Nobody accused them of bottling it in those days, just ran out of steam.

Made up? It's a perfectly cromulent word.

Still buzzing from last night.

 

With a severely depleted squad and a run of fixtures against lower half teams it's quite easy not to get an acceptable return of points.

 

There is no doubt that the other six teams in 2nd-8th had a collective groan when we got the winner. With our injury problems we were seen as the team that looked the likeliest to be caught in the current top four. It's just fantastic that we've done what we needed to do this weekend and now have our feet up and putting pressure on our competitors to perform.

No rep to give. But I thought this too. OK Man United won today but thrir supporters as well as Chelsea, Everton etc would have been dead pissed off last night when Dan scored.

I thought the forum was for posting ur views , not to get bagged , we are all Leicester supporters having our say . 

The forum is for posting a viewpoint but expect to receive comments when outlandish or incorrect statements are made.
