    It’ll be odd to hear the announcer at the start of the game state the reason for the silence.
    50,000 pairs of eyes will glare at our owners seat and think ‘You will NEVER have this sort of respect’.

    • Tweed Mag

      He will hide.

      • Kenny

        got the brass neck to be at the match

    • Leicester Mag

      Sadly like all cowards he gets off on this machismo; loving to be the villain. May be after respect is shown by observing the silence a chorus of your not fit to own a club would be apt.

      • Paul Patterson

        Very, very apt.

  • Peaky

    Fatty will be scheming now with his minions to see if there’s any money making opportunities that could rise from this….

    • Kenny

      Sports Direct Poppys, British Legion will get every penny from the sales

      • Rabid Dog

        It would not surprise me. He makes his money from being a bottom feeder.

      • Danimal

        Every penny apart from “onerous contractual obligations”.

  • Mike

    Weird isnt it….Cashley could have had the same sort of respect at Newcastle if he had done the same as Leicester chairman. What price would you put on that?
