Gave it some time to calm down before commenting.  Rodgers is not as good as him and the media think. Maddison is a luxury we cant afford he does nothing. Schmeichel must be a vampire hes going nowhere near crosses. Collectively the team are bottlers, that last statement is harsh but after last season and now the last couple of weeks its clearly true. Other than a freak result against Chelsea in the cup i think we are done. Having followed this club all my life I'm used to seeing us lose but having a team with no heart is worse than having a bad team. Rant over enjoy the rest of the season boys I'm out of here.

Looking like I've jumped on this Leicester thread again.  I feel  your frustration and we have all been through it. And come out the other side smiling 😃.  So come on down and join back in😁👍

There is one massive consolidation though. At least your not a scousers,  could you imagine having to bear that as well. 😂😂😂 sorry Steve only joking mate as you know 😉

As a West Ham fan, last night makes it interesting.  As a football fan I just wish we had beaten Chelski, or even drew with them the other week, then we would both still have a chance of the CL.  Its almost certainly going down to the wire.

Leicester Boy, to put things into perspective for both our clubs, 6 years ago I celebrated some of my 50th in The Donkey and then saw WHU lose a brilliant game 2-1 to your lot. That was the game which started the run to avoid relegation under Pearson. Just a few years later, you’re following a team that has won the Prem, is in it’s first cup final in 52 years and is regularly challenging for CL qualification. Both our clubs are having great seasons and we will do well to remember how far they have come. Let’s enjoy the ride while it lasts.

Youe absolutely right buddy, but i can assure you winning the Premier league was probably family aside the greatest day of my life, but defeats still hurt and when they don't well then it probably is time for me to give it up. I hope that makes sense.🤔

LB, I understand this more than you can imagine. I’ve been going 35 years home and away; the joys and the despair in football are like almost nothing else on this planet (Family aside).

Good luck in the Final; will be rooting for you against the Rent Boys.

Cheer Up Guys.

It's only a game of footy - it could be worse if you're a Derby County fan currently losing at home to Sheff Wednesday and on the verge of being relegated from the Championship.

Put's our little lot into perspective.

Back to the Prem lads - not bothered about the sheep shaggers - Prem - Still all manner of things cracking off even today - Leeds beating Spurs with 10mins to go. Every chance Man City will beat Chelsea later and who knows with Liverpool / Saints. Leicester's defeat wouldn't look so bad if those things happen. What a game it is. Man Utd definitely going to juggle team to deal with fixture pile-up so who knows.

There you go Foxes fans 3 good teams relegated from the Championship.

When you find your expectations are continually reaching higher and higher, it's good to step back and see just how far we have come as a club in a relatively short space of time.

We all feel the pain of relegation because we have been there ourselves, and it hurts being out in the wilderness rudderless and all you can do is hope and pray you get promoted as soon as possible.

True indeed rudzy, the relegation to div 1 although sobering was the beginning of the greatest sports story ever, although i am biased. 😁

All in the game.

One single goal scored or not conceded in the last game of the season, could have made a difference.

Millers beat owls and Derby home and away.

Wickham beat the millers easily at the new York.

Fine margins? 5 goals from 110 shots. 19 games lost by one goal.

Truth be told, lady luck favoured the teams just above the bottom four, and when that happens, the only way is down.

Ah well, a few local Derbys to look forward to, and there's always another chance we will bounce back again.

At the moment I'd say they have the best squad and have more goals in them than City.  Utd possibly best on their day but still a bit inconsistent., City best at beating all bar the top teams.  I think whichever signs a top forward will be favs to win the league next year.

The good thing for the Foxes is our goal difference is a bit better than West Hams, but your form is better than ours.

Our problem is we probably need to win all 4 games which for us is a massive ask.  Still better than the normal relegation fight!!!

Reality Check - Top 6

Unfortunately the likes of Leicester City, West Ham Utd, Leeds Utd, Aston Villa, Everton & Tottenham Hotspur will always be regarded at best as top 6.

It's gonna take a lot of hard work and it's an on-going project to regularly profile our clubs into the same league as Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal & Liverpool - These are the main English clubs that are massively followed all over the world.

Location is a big pointer to attract the very best players and Fair Play wheeler dealing still has a long way to go - that's the way of the world.

So at this moment i'm gonna lower my expectation for the Foxes to finish in a Top 6 position and if it ends up Top 4 then that's a Big Bonus.

As much as we would like to be successful in Europe - playing too many games can have an adverse affect on your resources.

Particularly if you don't have strength in depth - This is evident for LCFC with recent results in the League being very disappointing.

James Maddison looking very lightweight at the moment, Soyuncu going missing in games, and who would have thought a Jonny Evans injury in the warm up would prove so costly?

Christian Fuchs could still do a job at the back, Hamza Choudhury could add a bit of BITE, and we still haven't seen the best of Cengiz Under.

Too many times this season playing a high line, opposition sussed us out with a long ball and in typical Leicester old style we are getting caught out on the back foot - miles too slow in all defensive positions.
4-4-2 will bring us back to stability.

Could all of these factors conspire to put a damper on the season and re-affirm our current Premier League status as "THE BOTTLER'S" ?

Only Time Will Tell - but hey, what a ride we've all been on.

KEEP THE FAITH

Yeah i know what you're saying, in theory we should have won games but stumbled.
It's true what you said earlier it's gonna go right down to the wire, and who's to say Man U don't nick the Premier League title right at the end.

It’s the age old - “ find your car up on bricks - with no wheels “ - and been reinforced by Scum media like the S@N ... humour and sense of belonging to your routes are imbedded in L’pool. Laugh it off - for sure,  just like the stereotyping from The Comedians back in the day .. is it valid now - not really , but hey ho , banter we can take .

That said - lucky 3 pts tonight - we where rubbish - Nate Philips looks solid but no speed and front 4 don’t look together . 

Putting the pressure on Foxes and West Ham - but we go again and let’s see where it takes us . 

Lets beat the Scum - ( who said that )

Steve, Some people have no sense of humour mate. We know the truth . Always a laugh and take the P out of each other . Goes with the territory of who we both support and long may it continue before the PC brigade take over the world. 

Less than a year now until your retirement, Cant be bad, Think i may have already done it unless something nice and local like 5 miles away maximum comes along with hours and wages to suit, i wont bother. Not desperate

Steve. We are used to playing Sunday/ Thursday because of the Europa league so  not to worried about those games and i think we will be full strength for Villa and your lot but he will definitely rest players Tuesday against Leicester

We are making too many mistakes at the back YAWL.

Liverpool - never write them off - United should beat us comfortably on Tuesday of course we might turn up and nick a point - you can't tell at the moment.

We have knocked United out of the FA CUP so let's wait and see.
