Speculation The hysterical and annoying, but traditional, totally unfounded winter 2018/19 rumours thread.

I think there's a lot of reason beyond wine for optimism. Don't misunderstand, I generally have a good feeling about the recent years. Importantly, I can see the club is increasing in value under the current ownership. As I say, off the pitch isn't at all what I was talking about. Huddersfield and Newcastle were two of the flimsiest, most spineless teams we've played in a long time. Beating them wasn't special, it was extremely ordinary. When we play someone with any intention of winning a football match, we crumble.
BM, don't get me wrong. I was reacting to the generally very negative views being expressed on this forum, not your point in particular. I don't comment a lot, but read most things posted and I just sense that many need to get a bit more real about who we are and where we are. You're right, Huddersfield and Newcastle were pathetic (although Newcastle looked pretty good against Utd.) and I've just spent the weekend with some die-hard Burnley fans, telling them that if they don't batter Huddersfield they need to have a word with themselves (oops!)!
But we can only beat the teams we play, which we did, and despite the Everton result, I still think we'll have a better season than last.

What makes you think we’ll have a better season this season compared to last?


Man Utd away:

This season - lost
Last season - lost


Wolves home:

This season - won
Last season - lets say draw (we drew against all three relegated clubs at home last season - shocking really)


Southampton away:

This season - won
Last season - won


Liverpool home:

This season - lost
Last season - lost


Bournemouth away:

This season - lost
Last season - drew


Huddersfield home:

This season - won
Last season - won


Newcastle away:

This season - won
Last season - won


Everton home:

This season - lost
Last season - won


Total this season: 12 points
Total last season: 14 points


Hardly a sign of progression.

Once I get past the foolishness of Saturday and other days like it, I remember where we've been and where we are and give a small prayer of thanks.
My concern is we are never too far away from a bad run that could sink us back to where we’ve been. We can have all the training ground facilities and ground expansions planned, but it might be an anchor wrapped round our leg if we are playing in the Championship. West Brom we’re pushing for Europe a few seasons ago.

I give thanks to the miracle season and our fantastic owners. I regret how our money has been spent on recruitment. I hope the Leicester job hasn’t become a poisoned chalice.

Apart from THAT season, the odd false dawn like 2000-2001, and the relegation years, 'twas ever thus.

I was told the plans include:
1. Increased capacity by 8000 seats
2. A new small 6000 seated arena at the side of the stadium
3. A hotel
I work staging live concerts, so if a 6000 seater arena is true that would be a huge success for the local economy and to bring better quality entertainment to Leicester.

What about the ‘Big Spending Leicester City’ years when we nearly had Victoria Beckham doing her Saturday morning shopping in the Highcross?
We didn't have the highcross then, otherwise it would have gone through for sure.

I can’t remember who it was, maybe Iborra or Silva but I got a very excited phone call from a friend who had been following them and their very attractive spouse in and out of Lewis’s for his entire lunch break.

You need some new friends.

We are also not to far away from going on a good run these internationals are a pain in the arse and does more damage to clubs than good IMO, I am still optimistic for the season, I am concerned with our CD selection and our weakness at RB but I am sure it will be resolved. would like to see shinji start with Vardy he links well with him and adds more urgency to our game but hey ho.
