LEICESTER CITY FC 2020/21

MAN CITY 2 - 5 LEICESTER CITY

Is this result an "HALLUCINATION" ?
Perhaps a rogue WI-FI signal sent from the Star System "ZETA RETICULI" home of the legendary "SKINNY BOB".

ALAS NO!
The goals are on You Tube, Vardy Hat Trick, Tielemans & Maddison one a piece.
Mahrez and Ake scoring for the home side.

Leicester City Top of The League - can the greatest sporting achievement of all time be making a comeback?

VILLA 7 - 2 LIVERPOOL Up The Villa 😆 Ollie Watkins - hat trick McGinn - Barkley - Grealish (2) Salah (2) THIS IS NOT AN HALLUCINATION - IT'S A RESULT

Fantastic start to the season, great team spirit there, it looks as if Rogers has got them to his way of playing and adapting to different styles of football.

That was his uncle fluffy.😁

New Signing from ROMA,

Cengiz Ünder - Turkish International.

Scores a lot of goals and assists definitely a player to watch.

Might be slightly biased but Brendan out thought the great pep, and we out fought a team assembled for multi millions.

Hello Mate,
Yes, Brendan's got the Foxes playing some good fast attacking football while maintaining a strong defence - LIVERPOOL STYLE!

Hopefully we can keep a strong first eleven and not get too many injuries along the way.

Early days yet - but let's enjoy for now our current high flying DESERVED top of the table position.

injuries will be your downfall again I fear, the squad no where near strong enough to compete on all fronts.  But if they stay fit and Rogers can rest and rotate at the right times who knows what you can do.  Great result Sunday.

Training - 2 games a week - Cup matches - Internationals - Fatigue - VAR.
all part of the pressure on the modern day footballer.

Squad rotation is ESSENTIAL for all clubs.

True Leicester - forget this Foxes monika - they are and will always be THE CITY  as in 'ows the City getting on '/ yuh gooing down the City. Cricket just the same, as in ows the County getting on.

What a win - great to see a City side that doesn't lose momentum due to Chilwell failing to control a simple pass with a wafting touch as City break down the left.  £50million grand theft larceny.

True blue - 1st game I saw at Filbert St. Vs. West Brom 22nd October 1960 - finished 2-2 - 7th birthday treat from my mum. Sat in the double decker

Hi Steve,
The CHILWELL transfer was a good bit of business and allready we have signed an exciting prospect in Cengiz Ünder - looking forward to watching him run at defenders and off load some REAL BANGERS!

Late 60's skinhead me - Top Rank - Went to the Casino 1st night - Sept '73 - on a run down from the Mecca - earlier - thought it looked like a youth club outside and very few people I recognised from other major venues at the time. A bit rich maybe as I was only 19 at the time but had been around for some years by then.

NEW PLAYER IN

WESLEY FOFANA - DEFENDER

373358385_WESLEYFOFANA.jpg.df8efc6fa345a6d6a4de0f686945fcc6.jpg

Premier League leaders Leicester have had an offer accepted for teenage French defender Wesley Fofana, Saint Etienne have announced.

The deal is reportedly worth up to £30m and is the "largest ever obtained" by the Ligue 1 club.

Fofana, 19, has been described by his club as "one of the greatest French talents of his generation".
He has played 29 times for Saint Etienne including three games this season.

The French club are managed by former Leicester manager Claude Puel.
Fofana would be the second big-money defender to leave Saint Etienne for a Premier League side recently after Arsenal signed William Saliba for £27m.

It's a lot of money for a young player, but when you consider Manchester United have offered £91.3 million for Jadon Sancho it could turn out to be a Bargain.

If he fulfills his potential the Maguire fee will seem like peanuts in 3 years, very raw but hugely rated by the French.

29 games over three season including this one, bit if a gamble don’t you think?  Quite a massive step up from where he was to where he is going? He won’t even have to e to settle in and if he gets off to a bad start he may not recover this season?  If he dies settle in then the gamble will be a good one and he will be a shrewd investment if you get a few years out of him. 
 

of course the trouble is if he does become a success the top clubs will come after him.

All good points chalky, but he wont go straight in evans and caglar are first choice centre halfs, the losing to a"bigger" club is now a given in football even utd and liverpool have lost top lpayers, the price is a gamble but reports from france are hes going to be a superstar and we have made plenty on recent sales and its certainly worth a chance, used to have a good couple of lads from Chesterfield who came to Leicester games.

Great to see Leicester doing well and over a few seasons and not just the one season league win.

Always had a soft spot for the foxes since I went to see a F.A. cup replay at Filbert Street in 1968 between City and Rotherham , which my team Rotherham lost .

We also had the pleasure of having the old Leicester player Rodney Fern ply his talent at Rotherham to great success.

Your off to a great start .. and that result against City came out of the blue .. 

Long season ahead and squads need to be big to last , with the amount of games to play. That’s the only downside for Leicester I think .. but listen , who knows , I never thought the Toffees would make this kind of a start , but they did have easier games to kick off with .

Great to see your lads up there again. Fitting legacy .

Rodney Fern - He's here, He's there, He's every ....  - we all know the rest.

Good player - scored the goal just before half time that got us back into the cup replay against Man. City after going 2-0 down - sparked the great second half revival that saw what became known as the 'Frank Large' game as the 18K buy from Northampton scored twice  and a fourth from David Nish was too much for Man. City, Feb 19th 1968.  Attendance 39,109  absolutely the best game and atmosphere ever - you could not breath, Filbert St was so packed.  I was there as always. Those 4 Leicester goals in 18 mins starting with Fern's 44th min. cross volley into the Filbert St end net set up a 3 goal blitz in front of the Kop. As awesome as last Sun.     City - Shilton, Bell, Nish Rodrigues, Sjoberg, Cross, Roberts, Stringfellow, Large, Fern, Gibson - Man City went ahead with a 6th min. Pen from Franny Lee, Summerbee added a second on 24 then came the return from the dead only for the incomparable Colin Bell to get a third for the Mancs. in the 88th. min, setting up a fraught final few mins before the roof came off on the final whistle. Legendary Game

Mate,
I was at the game but unfortunately got there a little bit late and couldn't get in due to it being a packer - can't remember the score but if you say we won i will have some of that.

Have a good season.

Hi Mate - Welcome.
I think it's good that Everton and Leicester have made a great start to the season and it adds a bit of SPICE to the mix instead of the usual Top 4 (with respect to all Mancs/Londoners).

It was a packer , we drew at Rotherham , which featured on Match Of The Day and lost at Leicester , a fifth round tie and still the furthest we have been in the cup.

We beat Wolves and Villa in the previous rounds , Tommy Docherty was our manager but alas we got relegated the same season.

All the best for the season.

Certainly did score against Arsenal at Filbo - next day Sunday - My elder brother Andrew who was a local celebrity / promoter / dj had Peter Shilton and his girlfriend round to the baronial home at Rothley for Sunday tea. Very formal - mother even used the dining room for the spread - remember being a bit star-struck when Peter and his girl arrived at the front door.

I used to collect footballers autographs when I was a kid and we played Leicester in a friendly late 60s , and we managed to get 

near to the dressing room area after the game and Peter sat with us for a while happily signing autographs and chatting  , a great guy who seem happy to be around  fans , not like some I have met during my graphing days .

Transfer Window

The Premier League and English Football League summer transfer window is open from 27 July until 5 October, subject to Fifa approval.

The window, delayed because of the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, is also set to include a domestic-only period for transfers between Premier League and English Football League clubs from 5-16 October.

It's heading towards £100 Million for a player - it's ridiculous, it's out of control - something has to be done.

It is totally crazy even in normal times but with this pandemic and no crowds to supplement the TV money the big clubs seem oblivious to the fact .

 Liverpool , Man City and Chelsea have spent like nothing has happened , United have got money burning in their pocket .

I cannot see crowds been inside grounds this season and all these players with overinflated prices playing glorified friendlies. 

If people get sick of watching these matches on Sky and pull subscriptions the sh*t hits the fan.

Happy for Harvey.....but the cliques at England training camps are well known for getting in the heads of players not at certain "big" clubs, its a poisoned chalice as far as im concerned,  Maguire,  chilwell theres a pattern developing,  whatch this space.

Seems like if you are English and playing in the Premier League and not played for England at 20 you should be playing in the lower leagues lol.

Southgate dishes caps out like they are smarties.

This is no slight on Barnes though he seems to have performed at a high level for a few season though , so well done to the lad.

I hear what you say pal , and you are right that it all seems a bit mad , to keep on spending like this , but what Edwards is doing at Anfield is structuring deals that get paid over time , not all up front .

We have spent £71 million and got back £15 m .. and like the Thiago deal , it’s £5 mill each year over 4 years . He’s a snip at that price . He came on as a second half sub in his first game and had more touches than anyone on the pitch in 90+ mins .  

Agree all of this can’t keep going on like this and also agree I doubt very much if spectators will be let back any time soon . But what can anyone do .. how can it be solved . Wage caps ? Transfer restrictions ? I’m not sure you will ever get 100% agreement for anything like this .

I fear for division 1-2 .. for higher none league .. and grass routes .. 

Maybe another subject for discussion. 

Keep on doing it Leicester .. !
