    Leicester City boycott?

    Surely, the only course of action LC fans need to take is to threaten to cancel their season
    tickets and the scum management would soon have to sit up and take notice.

      Their 1 point clear of the bottom 3.

      The last thing they need is fans boycotting.

      I disagree with the sacking, however a very good friend of mine is a Leicester City STH and he gave an interesting view on it all. Ranieri worked miracles last season, but everything coming out in the last 24 hours suggests senior players weren't supporting him (and that appears to have been evident on the pitch too). The owners can't (logically) sack the entire first team and expect to survive, so the alternative is to sack the manager.

      He also pointed out that this was Ranieri's chance, with all the money spent (this season), and the limelight, media attention, title etc. to really solidify LCFC as a top half Premier League team. He's not done that, and looks like he's blown 80m+ up the wall on bang average players.

      Yes, fans threatening to cancel season tickets has always worked in the past to get managers reinstated.

      Half of them probably secretly wanted him gone anyway.

      Then those players deserve to go down and I'll be hoping that happens.

      Well, no not really. Leicester's yearly match day Income is in the 11M region. Their predicted share of TV money exceeds 110M (I stand to be corrected by @El Presidente). If Dave from Melton luzzes his season ticket on the pitch in protest at their ex manager receiving a 7 figure pay off, I don't think their owners with a net worth in the billions will lose any sleep.

      That's exactly what Gus Poyet told a Seagulls Over London meeting about Ranieri when he was at Chelsea.

      Why won't experienced, senior players support their manager? Or do we blame Ranieri? Poyet undoubtedly put the blame on Ranieri, not his Chelsea colleagues.

      What if there were no hypothetical questions?

      Plus the approx 30 million they will have made in prize money for their CL run so far. The owners won't give a flying **** about a few fans not turning up.

      Poyet is just a thoroughly nasty piece of ego who is rapidly running out of career options. Next stop South America. Probably after being sacked through falling out with the chairman less than halfway through the Chinese season. Charlie Oatway's gonna need a bigger passport.

      I bet his bank account isn't running out of zero's any time soon though.
