    Hah, there's more than a hint of bitterness there. Seem to remember Man U fans being desperate to sign him less than 3 years ago.

    Right, I'm from Leicester and therefore should be a Leicester city fan but I'm not. I have a friend on Facebook who is a derby fan and keeps calling Leicester a 'tin pot club'. What is this? Cheap club?

    Just means small club. Never won any proper trophies.

    Tends to be an expression real big clubs don't bother with if you want some ammo to go back with. It's a bit of a 'history fc' thing to say.

    To be fair, the Sneijder of today is very different to the one Utd fans were desperate to sign.

    It was summer 11.

    Not bitter about him not coming to United, as much as I' would've like him at the time, though I think he's got some front if it's true about him demanding in excess of £200k a week.

    He's in a wage dispute with Inter not unlike the one Rooney was in a few years back...

    Whoever gets him will in all likelihood get a bargain, and it'll be a coup. May even be United. It's obvious everyone's waiting until the last day for that one.

    Its a bit simpler than that. Leicester desperately want derby and forest to notice them and include them in the local rivalry, but neither set of fans can be arsed and generally ignore them.

    This means they have a massive inferiority complex so they overreact to the littlest things.

    Its a classic case of 'who the fuck are Leicester city?'.

    I've always seen Leicester as a bigger club than Derby tbh. Is that not right?

    No. Shit club, no fans.
  • Deleted user 19 January 2013 11:52:00
    Derby have had a period of being properly big, but in recent history Leicester have probably spent more time in the top tier.

    They have had one more season in the premiership but we have never been down to league one, so we win on points.

    Good. I like Derby. I'm surrounded by Forest fans at work and they piss me off.

    Terms like 'Tin pot club' should only ever be used for teams like MK Dons.

    Well, around the late 90s when they had MoN in charge they were a pretty consistent mid-table side and won a couple of League Cups as well. Again, I think I can understand why a 'modern football fan' might see Leicester as the bigger club. They've been higher profile in more recent years (not to mention currently doing very well).

    They're welcome to him. I'm sure he'll bang in loads of goals for Newcastle but don't expect any work rate. Never know, this might mean some purchases after all!

    Sky now going with the fee being agreed for Yanga-Mbiwa.

    I wouldn't get too excited, the player himself has said in the past that he wants a Champions League club. This will probably start a bidding war and nothing else.

    As for Bent - very unlikely. The club have a policy of not buying players over 26 (Debuchy was the odd exception), he'd be on high wages, and he's too similar to Cisse. The club want a player who can play to the left of Cisse (Ben Arfa to the right), only playing in the centre when Cisse is out. He needs to have pace too. Ba was too similar to Cisse and that partnership never worked out, so they don't want to make the same mistake twice.

    Supposed to be €8m, which is a bargain for a player of his quality.

    Would like to see Arsene bite at that price. Only 1 injury and suspension away from Squillaci in the team.
    Montpelier need the €€€, I believe.
    If they do (and I've heard they do), plus out of CL and unlikely to get back in, maybe Wenger can do a deal for Belhenda and get him on the cheap.

    FIFA 13 quoted me £13Mil, which we can afford.
    That's how real life works, right?

    Nervous about both positions to be honest. We're in real trouble if we don't get these two players in, especially if Cisse gets injured and we're left with Shola as our senior striker.

    This deal is far from finished, and getting a decent striker in won't be easy.
