I was a bit young at the time of the 'Gang of Four', but from what I understand, he was spot on about the direction the club would take under Elsom - although I doubt he foresaw the collapse of ITV Digital etc.
People want to look like they know what they're talking about. Pretty much all managers get sacked in the end, even Claudio and Wenger got sacked. So by getting in early, saying it's rubbish and the manager hasn't a clue just gives those people the perceived right to say 'I told you so'.
Didn't say I agreed with it or how he handled himself or the move, but would you rather he had stayed given what we know now?
The club have £70m in the bank and £70k a week off the books, which if he had done his ACL about a month earlier, we would have had neither. It didn't feel nice at the...
Great move for him really and I understand why he pushed for it. He's on £250k a week for the next 6 years or so, regardless of how many games he plays or if he recovers from that injury.
If he had stayed with us he would have had 3-4 years left at probably £70k a week. For a player who's...
This is Birmingham present day. They've installed a tram network, from what I can see it works okay, but hasn't transformed travel particularly - yet. It has ruined many businesses in Digbeth by making it utterly inaccessible for literally years.
They also managed to go offline for a few...
It's January and there's a cost of living crisis on. Fair play to UFS and others for applying pressure on this, but suspect this is more driven by market factors and poor demand (certainly the case for the BCFC game).
Find it slightly grating that these players don't seem to value their own hard work and perseverance. Almost as though, I don't need to try because god will make me score.
They probably don't see it that way and you can't really post "I'm so great"* every couple of weeks, so maybe a bit...
Meanwhile @Volpone literally called for a journalist to be sacked because he said Wes Morgan was intelligent.
According to a report from The Sun journalist Alan Nixon via his Patreon account, Premier League strugglers Sheffield United could be about to send Luke Thomas back to Leicester after an as of now unsuccessful stint at Bramall Lane.
It got a lot better last year when they said they were checking people buying tickets were actually using the tickets. Now that seems to have stopped and surprise surprise, impossible to get an away ticket again.
Everyone talks about the sanitising of the game, but then moans at anything out of the ordinary.
Personally I enjoyed it. Winding up opposition fans is one of the reasons Vardy is so unique.
Yeah, he probably shouldn't have gone over the ads, but can't say I'm too bothered about it.
