Leicester fan on Radio 2 now
at 12:16 3 May 2016

Lifelong supporter of Leicester City, now 78 in tears about the teams win.

Says he has been going since he was seven apart from ten years in the middle when he got fed up with them selling their star players and went to support Forest when they won the league and European Cups.

A moving story of a super fan :)

Perfect age of a Town fan?
at 14:25 25 Apr 2016

I would think you would have to be 19 in 1962 to have sampled the Champions of div 2 and Div 1 whilst being old enough to have a beer and go to away games on your own.

35 when we won the cup, and 38 when we conquered Europe.

So you would have had to be born in 1943. That would make you 73.

Blimey.

38,010 v Leeds United FA Cup sixth round
at 12:15 25 Apr 2016

I was there as a young lad. On my beer crate. You couldn't move it was so packed. Amazing atmosphere. I used to love those silk scarves they sold in the club shop. Had a really unique smell to them when new. funny what you can remember.

Kundai Benyu 4/1 for first goal tonight
at 15:13 19 Apr 2016

According bookies. Do they know something we don't?

I think we know he is a midfielder rather than a striker so they don't appear to know that with those odds.

Funny old game Saint
at 11:23 19 Apr 2016

Had Andre not been playing tonight I would find it difficult to summon up the effort to go and watch. Had completely lost my ITFC mojo for this season.

Now he is playing I am really looking forward to it. Last game I saw him play was for Broke Hall school against Hillside. He was playing a year up and my lad was playing for Broke Hall. Even then he looked a class above. Andre wasn't bad either :)

I think good on them. Whatever others think and some of the comments are harsh I feel that they are trying to create an atmosphere so fair play. Keep it up lads.

I read that this season could possibly be the first time in our entire history that we had not scored more than two goals in a home game all season. Blimey.

Player of the season so far?
at 15:44 11 Mar 2016

What you reckon? A few contenders.

Fraser? Best player been injured a lot
Bart? Been brilliant lately
Freddie? Consistent but played out of position
Tommy Smith? Best season so far for the Town IMHO

I would probably go fro Ryan Fraser but it's a close one this year.

Fortuna Dusseldorf and FC Koln trip last weekend
at 11:59 7 Mar 2016

I went over to Dusseldorf last week to watch Fortuna against Karlsruher SC and also took in FC Koln v Schalke 04 on the Saturday. I have written some thoughts. Bit long but some may be interested.

I have to say I was very impressed with both games. For the Fortuna match I went on the terraces. It was quite an experience. They never stopped singing from the moment the game started until the end. Even when they went behind they fully got behind the team.

Their home ground is quite a magnificent stadium holding around 50,000. There was around half that there Friday as it was a 6:30 KO and on TV. Still a good turn-out. Karlsruher brought a couple of thousand too. Your match ticket includes all transport to the ground and back.

Game was a bit poor to be honest. But beer was allowed to be drunk while watching the game and reasonably priced. Fortuna fans were really friendly and even bought us beer. Back to the Alt Town after the game for more beer.

Took the train to Cologne on Saturday and headed off to the ground. The atmosphere was something else. Massive standing terrace for Cologne Ultras who sang nonstop. 50,000 sell out with 5000 Schalke who were really noisy. Where we sat fans from both sides mingled freely with no trouble. The build up to the game is fantastic. Massive flags waved by both teams and pretty much everyone wore a scarf. It seemed more middle-aged than English Football but may not be.

Schalke won 3-1 and they are a quality team. Standard of football was more or less the same as the Premier League. A thoroughly enjoyable day out. Ticket for this game was Β£32.

Around Dusseldorf you have Bayer Leverkusen, Dortmund, Koln, and Schalke so if you fancy a dip into German footy you have a great opportunity to take in Fortuna and then one of the big boys. Hotel was Β£20 a night, flights Β£9.99 each way. So it is very doable.
The Germans do football probably. It is all about the fan experience at a very reasonable cost. I am hoping to go back and maybe take in Dortmund.

Great weekend. Only downside was missing the Town game.

I was just watching Sia on Carpool Karaoke with James Corden. I had never heard of her. Then she sung all her songs which I knew but thought Rhianna had sung all them.

I am so down with the kids.
