As usual though most of the away support can't hear a thing we sing.
We easily muted the ones next to us though they watched us singing most of the game.


Definately mate, thought it was a great atmosphere in there yesterday :thup:

This is where I sit, and I have to say, top notch again from us. I love the new addition of throwing claret and blue paper rolls all over the place :lol:.

Thier support is awful, they only piped up to dig out Green or when they scored. Everytime we scored you didn't hear a peep out of them until their next goal.

As for Lee Peliter, what a mug. Wouldn't shake hands with Green. That player and fans deserve each other.

Can not agree mate. If the roles had been reversed and say Collison refused to shake the hand of Schmeichel we would be lauding him for being the "fan's champion".

For what reason? If anything in that case it would make Collison a bit of an idiot. There is no problem with singing songs about Green, it's part of football, but the throwing things is where the line is crossed. I've seen players tell their own fans to stop **** like this before, but Peltier decided to not shake Green's hand for having a dig back? Sorry, but that's disgusting.

Perhaps that is what Green was explaining to Peltier.

He was mate, pretty much. Which is why I think it is so bad of Peltier to not shake hands with a fellow professional. Obviously he must think what they were doing was o.k?

Or perhaps he did not know about the coins, (even the ref probably missed it). I saw Green bend down once to pick something up, and made no big deal of it.

He's not going to during the match, but it's obviously the reason why he gave it back at the end. It's obviously much sweeter for him to rub in a victory than moan about a few coins. Regardless, very Wengeresque from Peltier.

I'm all for having away teams fill their allocation, it makes a better atmosphere...but Leicester might aswell have had 200 there for all they managed to contribute...

They are the guys next to me!

First week the muppet forgot to unwrap it and basically threw a claret missile across the stand. :lol:

Some bloke infront of me had the right hump that a long piece of blue paper was stuck tangled on his bald head at the Blackpool game :lol:.

It's something that's silly, but just adds to the fun IMO.

At least some LCFC fans agree...

And as for the ones calling Rob Green a ****, I think it was a logical response to the constant taunting from our fans.
At least the guy shows that he's got more passion than a lot of Leicester City FC players.

Watching The Football League Show last night , I was reminded of a certain Tony Cottee in the shape of Sam Baldock .
Living up here in the frozen North , I'd never heard of young Baldock until West Ham came in for him , and boy am I glad they did .
Gets in the right place , is ice cool in front of goal and scored a headed goal that he was always second favourite to get to yesterday .
Was pleased for Faubert as well .
5 great goals yesterday , happy that we got 3 of them .
COYI !

If people get pissed off with that then they need to stop being so precious, it all adds the atmosphere IMO
This is abit sad but I'd rather have the away fans right next to us in the TBL everytime over alot of the home fans when they open TBL 5 who don't stand or sing, it makes the atmosphere much better.

Agree with that 100% mate, I booked my tickets for Bristol last night and its in the dreaded TBL5 I will be standing and singing (hopefully, I'm nearest the away fans so I'm hoping that we'll stand in there)

Hopefully mate, I remember a lot of the games last season when TBL5 was available we stood for Stoke, Blackburn, Wigan etc, I was a bit bemused when we played Blackpool this season and everyone was sitting down.

Cheers for that mate :lol:

Do you think TBL4 and maybe even 3 will become available then? We're struggling to shift all the tickets that have become available in NL5 considering the games Tuesday and I can see a lot more available than taken.
