    I don’t think we will make the top 4 sadly. Couldn’t have asked for worst opposition on Tuesday and then it’s out of our hands on the last day failing a Liverpool loss to Burnley. Domestically the lot ! Takes some major effort to go well in the CL with the artificial seeding of coefficients and we got done by Prague in February through know-how of the two legged tie (as we did by Atletico in 2017 - we will beat them some time that’s written).

    Chilwell has made some comments which weren’t particularly wise in the lead up to the match. This lad famously refused to take a throw in at Millwall in a Cup tie. Kante however is a remarkably humble bloke who won us a league title and apparently when we play in London still pops into the team hotel to say hello. Anyway, what a day. What a honour to be there. What a winner. The emotions were raw - people in floods of tears. We’ve done the lot now, might as well fold the club.

    Understand the closure of tickets at a certain time but utterly mad about keeping you the same area. Non League in September/October you were allowed to wander - Beaumont Park is 85% open air.

    Subject to a negative test in a weeks time, I will be one of the Leicester supporting Guinea pigs at the Cup Final!

    They have an approx £250 million financial gap. Largely it’s unfortunate because they’d have hosted Anthony Joshua, NFL, Saracens and other events. Personally I think they’ve made some really poor decisions in regards to their playing staff.

    The latter part of that l bunch once provided four players for the England team. McLintock is a sore point - when he became manager he was a disaster.

    The Times seems to think they will put Mourinho on gardening leave, so they just put his wages in the same manner as the norm and hope he finds a new employer. Nagelsmann to take the role. Really Spurs should be taking more stick - they furloughed a number of staff and then took out a loan with the Bank of England. All whilst signing Bale on a ridiculous loan agreement and now appearing they want to rid of their manager. Financially they appear a basket case

    The Leicester team in the 70s saw our longest spell in the top flight. Big reputation as entertainers

    Yep, we are lack the energy right now with pretty much no attacking craft left. Under completely flattering to deceive. Feel for Tielemans, I don’t think he’s had a rest all season

    Maddison next on the injury list for us. That's Justin, Morgan, Fofana, Maddison, Praet and Perez now out with N'Didi, Pereira, Castagne and Vardy all at different stages of recovery.

    I don’t know we are keeping this up at the moment. Legs and injuries gotta start to tell at some point but the reality is that everyone is similar and we got benefitted from that today with Grealish out

    Football 2020/21

    Quite happily take that - tactics of damage limitation for 75 minutes until the equaliser. We did keep their chances to a minimum. Some performance by NDidi today - I think if he didn’t already feel it, he made Thiago feel very old

    Absolute heartbreaking news at Leicester. James Justin tore his ACL on Wednesday night. No England call up for the lad. Season over.

    Out of interest, because I only really follow specifics to my club....how many injuries sustained by your club have been soft tissue injuries? I don't think we've had a player out with a break or ligaments all season. It's hamstrings and groins. All of differing grades though. We've lamented our injuries all season but when I had Liverpool on last night, I saw Solly March for Brighton suffer a hamstring tear similar to Dennis Praet for us. Outside of Van Dijk, I can't remember many 'breaks'.

    Our second half v Fulham was a good cure of insomnia. We were inept at times but thankfully created two bits of skills to get the goals. Our second goal was a brilliant passing move. Fulham looked beaten in stark contrast to when they were superb at our place. Justin should be under consideration for the next England squad at left-back. He's on far better form than Chilwell. Should be him and Shaw. Probably end up with Eric Dier at left-back. Justin is also versatile can play wing-back or at centre-back, handy for international tournaments.

    He grew up in a well off family. So I don’t think his desire for success is larger than most. He drove in the Paris to Dakar rally!

    Got taught a lesson today in how you gave yourself the base to win a football game by desire, pressing and being first to the ball. Outside of Liverpool, I’d say Leeds were the first to deservedly beat us (ie no complaints or what if’s)

    I don’t know whether Leicester should take it as a sign of respect but the second half tactics by Everton were very defensive. Took some luck for the reward but another sign of the improvement across the year. Await with baited breath regards N’Didi’s injury - difference between good and great he is. There was a feeling of irony though as Everton took up a 4-5-1 formation, reliant on set pieces and sportsmanship to aid time wasting. Big Sam was hounded out for that.

    Wasn’t meant to be disrespectful in the slightest. I thought we should have been 2 down at Half Time - and we probably should have lost last years cup fixture which was a very similar game - again both teams made big personnel changes then as well. The gloat if you view that was how we’ve progressed from struggling in such fixtures to eventually composing ourselves to win. If anything I’m showing respect if it’s deemed a gloat rather than an alienating pat on the head for saying ‘well done Brentford’. I’m quite aware - I have been there and plenty of false compliments along the way. Football’s cyclic - we soon be back falling down, just hope what’s occurred means the fall is not too low. If you want me to level criticism at Brentford, it’s that their club is largely funded by a massive issue within football - betting, the owner effectively sells information to inform bookmakers of odds. In the same way our ownership is propped by a company who’ve benefitted from a corrupt government, it doesn’t sit well with me. Weirdly the family have probably invested more more in Leicester as a civic duty for its people then they have done for their own country. Equally I’m not a fan of Brentford‘s tactic of signing youngsters from Europe to stock a B team at the detriment of young English kids. I know their reasons why and fully suspect that the new Brexit rules mean they require a rethink there.

    Could do with taking advantage of our success in increasing the stadium capacity and local rivals being poor (towns such as Nuneaton, Loughborough, Kettering, Stamford should have Leicester fans). Alas Covid stops that currently. Anyway Lampard has gone, Tuchel in

    I don’t want to be ‘that guy’ on penalties - but the Brentford player who committed the foul did a blatant dive on the edge of the box on the first half which led to our keeper having to make a good save. For the all the talk of retrospective bans, was probably the best medicine

    Our transformation is largely still money dictated - okay it’s not the same sums of oligarchs but we have owners who’ve invested at their own cost (less so now - everything is backed up by cash flow loans with an Australia bank). We transferred expertly yet failed pretty badly a year later but the old guard dug us out. Now we have a infrastructure which is the envy of lots of clubs - scouting, analytics, sports science - a lot lead by Pearson originally and most people he put in position who remain there. (Ranieri’s downfall was largely trying to rip this up) On transformations, two years ago we were sent out of the cup by Newport and completely looked devoid of responsibility. Today we changed 8, started poorly but eventually blew Brentford away. I suspect our first blow to the current form is coming on Wednesday but bloody hell, you have to rub you eyes to see Leicester City as the club they are now.

    A good friend mine is a Stoke fan, he believes them to be a striker away from troubling the top six. Can’t speak highly enough of Michael O’Neill Just looked up, I’d say you are probably right. Stoke may be at one stage might have had claim to that. 4 times Runners Up and there is a fair few Leicester fans what would probably ‘pack up’ their support if we completed the set with a Cup win. The nearest in recent years was that Wycombe disaster and last year’s very tame exit to Chelsea. Whilst I think we are excellent team on our day, there are questions about our ability to perform when the pressure is on.
