Discussion in 'Leicester City' started by Jeff, Jan 31, 2018.
Far from our only dodgy summer though. There are loads of candidates . . .
Vichai, Rudkin et al sat with the fans away at West Ham. Take with whatever pinch of salt but I heard from someone at the club that they were refused a box.
Kevin Poole is a goddamn saint.
I’ll take the summer of 2000 please.
I would have snubbed her for the simple fact she writes for that rag of a paper & hangs around with a media tart who does all in his power to get in front of a Camera!
Maybe, but he's the only one of those I can name and I only vaguely recognise two more of them
Ditto, Simon someone or other... a fullback I think. On the tip of my tongue.
Edit: Morgan. Simon Morgan?
The others look like Ashley Ward, Colin Gordon, Nicky Platnauer and Paul Fitzpatrick
No. He wasn't a summer signing, he started his career with us. And he'd already left Leicester when that photo was taken.
Nicky Platnauer, yes, I'd say he's one of them. I mistook Colin Gordon (not that I remember him!) for Morgan.
Ashley fucking Ward. Forgot he ever signed for us.
Was a tidy player for a couple of years. Not at City though.
Rowett, Creswell, Benjamin, Akinbiyi, Royce, Davidson.
Before anyone even says it Davidson was crap.
Rowett was ok I suppose.
For sheer volume of shit, you may have it.
2000 more incredibly ill informed scouting.
Yeah they were all shit. Davidson was a good pro but below the standard of player we should have been signing.
Platnaeur was a legend for his chant. OO-AH Platenah. Kevin Poole player loads of games for us under Little and beyond. I remember Fitzpatrick effecting the first proper bicycle kick clearance is ever seen. Ashley ward and Gordon were less good
But ward went on to be great at Barnsley
The Home Club is required by FA and Premier League regulations to provide an area of seating for officials of the Away Club in the proximity of such seats for its own officials. It would be ridiculous to think that Vichai and others sat with the fans other than by their own choosing.
Some interesting comments from Slimani, which suggest he won't be back:
If he's crap for Newcastle he might not have a choice.
"The big difference between Newcastle and Leicester is that Rafa Benítez trusts me and having the trust of your coach is very important."
The biggest difference being you've got Joselu as competition for a starting place.
Separate names with a comma.
