Basel Faulty

By PeteLCFC Switzerland Away – 7th September 2010 Before I start waffling on about what we got up to in Switzerland, I’d like to say that the reason I started writing these trip reports is because I used to really enjoy reading the reports that Stevo would post on the old Fox Fanzine website years ago before I started watching England away.  Hearing the news two days before I ....

Peter Shilton is Peter Shilton and has been since the year dot”   Bobby Robson’s typically confusing take on the Leicester greengrocer’s son makes perfect sense to those who have witnessed a career develop from Leicester City trainee to England No.1. ....

Lost In Translation – Player Power And “the List”

I think the transfer window deals have been good for us with Abe and Waghorn in and Campbell out. Like most City fans, I wondered what would happen with the players that reportedly expressed a desire to leave, (reported as Wellens, Gallagher, Fryatt and Campbell [and Hobbs, and Morrison, and King, and Oakley...] as people speculated).   People were talking about them being "transfer ....

Three Of The Best

Which three games stick out in your mind when you think about our last three seasons? I may yet have to alter my final entry with at least three games to go before we can instead focus on the World Cup. For now, though, which three would you pick? These are mine: 2007/2008 – Southampton 1 Leicester City 0 If it is possible to know deep down that your team will be relegated two months ....

Edgar Street Or The Emirates?

So the domestic football calendar heads into its final stages and the former Best League In The World™ looks set to culminate with the blue poshos deposing the red lot that have been top dogs for a while now. Remind you of anything? I tend to avoid most journalism surrounding the Premiership’s elite for fear of being brainwashed into actually believing they are anywhere near as good ....

Posh Spice - A Look Forward/back To Peterborough V Leicester City

  Saturday 28th March 2009. Leicester City’s team coach has been as far north as Hartlepool and as far south as Brighton in the preceding six months but today it travels just 40 miles due east along the A47 to Peterborough.

Leicester City - Proud And Embarrassed.

  Casting a tired eye over the Roof this evening, one thread in particular caught my eye: For me, pride is the most remarkable emotion that football can stir. Extending this notion even further, pride in defeat feels doubly triumphant. The feeling of a winning goal, particularly an important one, is always a pleasure but comes ....

Half-arsed Cov Preview!

Coventry City. Cov. Coventry. “Covscum”. Nope, still nothing. They just don’t mean anything to me. Certainly not anything positive but not even anything negative either. My less-than-trailblazing theory on the origin of pure hatred towards football clubs centres almost solely on childhood memories. Even if there is another pesky team nearby whose fans get all worked up about ....

Worth The Arthur Wait

  It doesn't look like much, does it? I absolutely love it. For the uninitiated, this beautifully constructed work of art is the Arthur Wait Stand at Selhurst Park. It is my favourite stand in the whole wide world - and this is why. Selhurst Park seems to be notorious as somewhere that is difficult to get to. I've been there three times now and I could probably negotiate the route from ....
