They just keep on coming.

This will be a tricky test, especially if we go for it. Nakamba needs to come back in for this, along with Guilbert and Engels.

Can't decide whether Taylor or Targett should be in on the left either, so I'll go with Taylor.

I'd consider leaving SJM out for a rest,i worry he'll get injured if he keeps playing,and he's been off the pace recently.

Though that's a lot of change.

ha ha good try Drum

Play Taylor and drop SJM

April 1st has come and gone mate

Not a direct swap. Obviously. Then again...

Taylor at the back with Targett wide left...

Nah, just tried to put a side together in 4-3-3 and couldn't!

Always hated Leicester despite their shiny manager and good young players since we lost 1-0 after Pat McMahon's goal was disallowed after it went in via the stanchion (ask your Dad's) and I got beaten up in the car park by about ten of them as a 14 year old.
Just beat the fuckers.
Not my happiest night either.My motorbike broke down .In a Woodhall Parallel Universe Pat McMahon's 'goal' could have saved us from the Third,though it did prove to be an enjoyable experience.The design of the goals and stanchions were altered the next year.

Worrying? Why?

Football's all about eras. Leicester have had their troubled times historically just like any other club, are now enjoying a bright few years and fair play to them. What we'd give to be in their position and feeling what their fans have felt.

We've had great eras and troubled eras ourselves, and who's to say our next positive era isn't starting right now? We just don't know of course, but it's certainly not worrying that Leicester are just the better team at the moment, it's just a simple fact.

These press conferences are just all the same. Not one difficult or interesting question at all. How about asking Dean about his own tactical decisions, using subs, rotation e.g why Kodjia, Hause not being used, changing it up if Wesley is not scoring, same formations? etc. Its always mundane shit like isnt Jack playing well or VAR.

FFS, two games running with exactly the same questions about John Terrys coaching ability and him becoming a manager.

And also fucking JTs birthday. We get next to nothing as it is in terms of true meaningful content and they keep that in there. Love Terry, glad hes with us, but were a point outside the relegation zone. Concentrate on that.

I was so frustrated after that game I punched one of the big metal doors.

The door won.

You do realise that the 'clips' of AVFC press conference videos shared on AVFC channels are by AVFC internals? As soon as non AVFC journos ask questions the Club disconnect the live stream or clearly don't add their lines of questioning to the footage.

AVFC shared press confs are sterile, propaganda.

I hardly ever watch interviews be they pre-match, post-match or pitch-side. Who gives a fuck? Nobody will ever ask any 'difficult' questions and nobody will ever tell it like it is. What's the point?

If I ever had the`pleasure`of bumping into Peter Shilton I would ask him his thoughts on injustices and cheating during his career. Never mind the Hand of God, what about his hands sneakily wiping the muddy ball mark off the stanchion during the pandemonium at the other end when Keith Weller put the ball in the net 30 seconds later.
