    Leicester

    The team we should be.

    Great owners who care about the club, world class training facilities, a forward-thinking manager and excellent, exciting players. I know the oft-used stat compares us with Spurs when Fatso took over because we were on a similar footing.

    Never mind that, Leicester were in the 3rd division when he took over.

    Bruce is doing exactly what Fatso brought him in to do-take the flak away from him because he knew, from the way Bruce has conducted himself in the past, that, rather than pass the blame upstairs for the poor squad or accept the criticism of his shitty tactics, Bruce would, instead, start having a go at the fans. Almost all of our attention has been focused on Bruce recently whereas we all know the real culprit.

    And yeah, I know none of us have forgotten this but today's opponents have brought it sharply back into focus for me.

    No doubt. Bruce is only a symptom of the disease which is Ashley.
    When the Leicester owners’ helicopter went down some of their players were devastated and rushed out to the carpark to see if they could help.
    If Ashley’s went down ours are more likely to
    amble out with marshmallows on sticks to make use of the flames....,

    Properly run club, we can only dream it will happen to us one day. Suppose in 100 years time virtually everyone alive now will be dead and it could happen

    Oh, and they've just opened a new training ground which cost around £95 million.

    And not only do we give our players ice baths in wheelie bins we've got that fat, little shite Charnley telling us that our facilities are "adequate".
    it's like the plot from some low-budget (apt) Brit pic with Ricky Tomlinson trying to run a once great team fallen on hard times now playing in a Sunday League 'Go on, Jonjo, la....get yasel in that bin, it won't do you any 'arm'

    Lol, we are like when Rocky was training in a cabin in the woods with logs and axes to fight Ivan Drago.

    If you didn't laugh, you'd cry.

    Or do an awful lot of swearing.

    You just get the feeling that there’s no emotion at the club anymore. The lack of ambition and unfulfilling of potential has sucked it all away.

    It’s like a complete opposite of Keegan’s first period as manager.

    Great way to put it toptoon.

    The emotion is sucked away, from us fans as well.
