  1. Will Baston be available for this game?
  2. I kind of forgot we had this guy. What actually happened? Was it an injury or was it just that he was rubbish?
  3. That was a McGrath-like performance from Mings. Absolutely fantastic! Overall, not a bad result but we'll be expected to be more attacking in the second leg, which I think will play straight into Leicester's hands.
  4. Can't see anything other than a loss. I don't think we offer much of a goal threat so the better teams won't be afraid to come at us
  5. Where the **** was VAR??? Friend is an absolute joke of an official. I mean, we were still shit and on balance deserved a loss but to have a goal cross off for no good reason in the 96th minute is absolutely disgusting. 3 losses in 4. Worrying
  6. It'll be a loss today I think. Champs league finalists will be too big an ask on day 1 with so many new players. For me, today is about the performance and seeing how the lads play as a unit. Season proper can start next week with Bournemouth. Hope I'm wrong though!
  7. Any copies of the full match available anywhere? Missed it on the TV
  8. Assuming we could manage his undoubtedly astronomical wages, thoughts on Sturridge on a free?
  9. LOL. Sure thing, what's your sort code, account number, address, date of birth, mums maiden name and name of your first pet? I wondered how long it would take before someone would say that. Thought I'd get at least one sympathetic comment first! Typical VT
  10. So it looks like I've been royally conned by an old friend. I get a message on Facebook last night from him saying he was depressed, tried to commit suicide, life falling apart etc. Now the bailiffs were looking for money he didn't have and he needed to borrow some until the new year. I was shocked as he was always so together - great job, loads of money, model looking girlfriend etc. We haven't seen each other in a few years, no bust up or anything but we gradually drifted apart, but had basically been best mates at one point. So I took pity on him and sent him £100, he'd helped me out plenty of times when I was a student so I figured it was no big deal. This morning I get a message saying it wasn't enough, he needed more, had to get it together quickly, so me being a soft touch sent him another £50. He's grateful, says he'll give me back £200 in the new year, no problem. A few hours later - another £50 needed. This time, alarm bells are ringing. I try and call him, no response. Now I figure I've been royally conned, probably some identity theft Facebook job you read about, maybe someone's hacked his account etc. So I phone my bank, report to fraud department, fuming the whole time, steam coming out of my ears. I always figured I was too clever to get caught by scams like that, guess I was wrong. I message him and say I've reported him. He messages back claiming it really is him and answers some questions only he could know, nothing he could get through trawling through Facebook pics. I finally get him on the phone, turns out it really is him and he sounds blasted out of his mind on drink and/or drugs. I get in contact with his brother and a mutual friend, turns out this has been going on for a few years and he's constantly trying to con people. I know I shouldn't be too mad - ultimately it's a (relatively) small sum and he's clearly fallen on hard times but I'm fuming that an old friend would do that to me. I'm still holding out a vague hope that if/when he's sober, he might see sense and give it back, or maybe his family can get through to him and get it back to me, or maybe the bank can sort it - but I'm not too hopeful I'll ever see it again. TLDR: old friend I've not seen for years, now addicted to God knows what and apparently homeless, has conned me out of £150. Rant over Merry f'n Christmas
  11. Hi all, Hope I'm not posting this in the wrong place but I was hoping for some advice regarding buying tickets to see a Barcelona match in April. I'm looking at going to the Barcelona v Osasuna game in April, and as I've never been to a Barcelona game before I'm not sure about when is the right time to buy the ticket. I understand that the tickets are all owned by season ticket holders and tend to get released in the run up to the game. Currently, each part of the ground has a handful of tickets available, few of which are together (I'm going with a mate so need two seats together). So, do I take the tickets that are available now on the assumption that what's left will sell out soon, or do I wait and assume that more tickets will become available over the next few weeks? The whole point of the trip is to watch a game so I don't really want to miss the opportunity. A further issue is that the date and time of the game haven't been confirmed yet, so if I do buy tickets now and the game gets moved I'll have to rebook flights. All of this makes me think I should wait for more tickets, but I really don't want to miss the boat and not see the game. Anyone have any advice?
  12. In terms of money spent, the single worst player we've ever had. Good riddance!
  13. So this isn't on normal TV at all? What a farce!
  14. I would love to see them win it. It would be good for football to see a smaller side who haven't spent a fortune win it. In fact, it would be the first time that has happened for thirty odd years! Come on Leicester!
