    Same boat for me, mate. I can’t bring myself to enjoy anything tonight. It’s absolutely sickening.

    Two and a half years ago, we had the best days ever as City fans.

    I fear that today and those that follow are going to be the worst. Football can be everything and nothing.

    I'd be staggered if anyone survived that crash. I just hope there were not many on board and no bystanders killed. I fear that we're going to have to digest some pretty awful news.

    Apparently both Vichai and Rudkin were onboard.

    That's a certainty, I'm afraid

    It's horrific stuff

    A Leicester City spokesman said: “We are assisting Leicestershire Police and the Emergency Services in dealing with a major incident at King Power Stadium.

    The Club will issue a more detailed statement once further information has been established.” https://t.co/7HahuB7Q8E

    I’ve seen mixed reports regarding Rudkin. Not fair to speculate yet.

    There have been lots of rumours about who might and might not have been on board. Can we wait until an announcement instead of repeating stuff that's probably been made up.

    A lot of different, contrasting rumours flying on Twitter so far from people just desperate to be 'first'.

    Disgusting and despicable. Can we please only post info relating to this from more legit sources please?

    I know everyone is desperate for news, but announcements are a low priority at times like this so it will be quite a while before we hear anything official. Still hoping.

    The above Tweet is apparently from a fake account.

    Clearly the news is going to be very bad. An odd feeling that I saw the helicopter arrive as I left tonight, as I do after every game, given what happened very shortly afterwards. I’m glad not to have been among those supporters who witnessed the crash. Also, awful as this already is, that it didn’t occur half an hour earlier.

    Sorry Jeff and everyone. Just devastated and very confused.

    Praying for miracle #2.

    Cameras filmed the helicopter as it was about to take off so there will be images of those that got on board that I expect the police already have. Frankly, identifying the occupants any other way could take some time.

    The unknown will be anybody on the ground at the point of impact.

    How absolutely tragic. My thoughts are with the families.

    Yep. I’ve heard “stuff” that I have no reason to disbelieve, but I wouldn’t put it on here as it’s not an official report and can therefore obviously be wrong.

    I have a deep dark feeling in the pit of my stomach, though. What a fucking awful tragedy this appears to be.

    Ambulances slowly leaving the scene. Realizing just how much I love our club.
