When we played Ipswich last year three of our fans went on the main Ipswich forum to wind them up (I like to see opposition opinion before games). Dodgy mathematics therefore suggest we hate Leicester twice as much as we hate Ipswich and, seeing as we don't hate Ipswich at all...
There can be few more pathetic sights than a Leicester City supporter attempting to wind up some sort of rivalry. I don't know of anyone outside of Leicester that has any interest whatsoever in the club, the city or its people. It would barely register on the nations concious if Leicester disappeared from the map overnight.
If you visit the city of Nottingham you must surely take a walk through Old Market Square, the scene of many triumphant trophy presentations in our illustrious city's history. You will see a statue of the late Brian Clough, a god in world football, architect of this triumph. If you walk through Leicester for some reason they've erected a statue commemorating their League Cup win in the 90s. It's a wonderful representation of what a nondescript embarrassment Leicester is.
Interesting facts about Leicester!
Did you know in 1841 Thomas Cook organised the world’s first package tour from Leicester - it went just up the road to Loughborough for a temperance meeting? For just a shilling each the 570 temperance activists got their rail travel and food on the journey.
Did you know that Radio Leicester was Britain’s first local radio station when it began to broadcast in 1967? The station hit the airwaves on Thursday November 8 that year, broadcasting for just four hours per day initially.
Gok Wan is from Leicester
According to many locals, no city in Europe contains the extremely rich mix of aroma, culture and colour that Belgrave Road brings. From the many quality restaurants, to the Indian shops that dazzle in their brightness, Belgrave Road is truly special. (There's that local biased pride again)

Not my favourite bit of town that but excellent food - best samosas ever!
Richard the third?- well it is a bit to be honest.
DNA profiling discovered at Leicester uni by Prof Sir Alec Jeffries. Pretty cool unless you are a criminal or are likely to be one!
Also Eddie the Eagle Edwards was in my mate's class at uni!
Interesting fact about Leicester, they (used to?)have a bike club called Rat Eye which is the Roman name for Leicester.
I thought that was pretty cool, back in the day.
If you want to know how Leicester fans feel, try talking to a German about them being England's rivals. They look at you like you've got three eyes, they only hate Holland and don't give a shit about England. Thank goodness for Scotland.

Leicester = shithole.
I have no strong feelings against the place. It's possible to work there and park the car in the work car park without paying for the privilege, and you can park for free on Sundays and in the evenings.
The walkers/KP is a horrible place though and should we ever get a new ground I hope it isn't as featureless.
