Leicester Game Postponed
Sunday, 28th Oct 2018 22:29
As was expected after the tragedy at the King Power Stadium the League cup tie with Saints will not now go ahead on Tuesday.
"Saints have confirmed that the trip to Leicester City on Tuesday evening is now cancelled.
Tuesday night’s Carabao Cup game between Leicester City and Southampton has been postponed.
Both clubs, in conjunction with the relevant authorities, took the decision not to play the match in light of the helicopter crash outside King Power Stadium on Saturday.
The thoughts of all of us at Southampton Football Club remain with our colleagues at Leicester, the Srivaddhanaprabha family and everyone affected by the tragic incident.
Details of a rearranged date for the fourth-round game, as well as ticketing arrangements, are not available at this stage and will be released in due course."
We at the Ugly Inside reiterate the sentiments of Saints and our thoughts are with the family of the family of Leicester City's owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha whom it has been confirmed was on board the helicopter when it crashed and indeed with the families of all of the other people on board.
We send our deepest condolences to all that are involved with Leicester City Football Club at this difficult time.

A Dale Fan Abroad - Reflections on Burton Albion 1 Rochdale 2 by DaleAddict
Lying in bed awake on Friday night I was struck by ‘the fear’. By around midnight it had consumed me, and all of my optimism for the season ahead was gone.
A Dale Fan Abroad - Introduction by DaleAddict
My 11-month old son is taking his afternoon nap. My wife is sunning herself on the balcony of our apartment in Salzburg, Austria. It’s the height of summer, but I have only got one thing on my mind; Burton Albion vs Rochdale.
A Hollywood script plays out in the Spotland sun by AtThePeake
It isn’t always easy being a Rochdale supporter. With the majority of the town’s footballing interest being soaked up by local behemoths Manchester City and Manchester United, the club’s attendances rarely break 3,000 home supporters.
Gylfi Not Irreplaceable- But Not Trying To Directly Replace Him Is Smart by BarneyLW
So the dust has finally settled. In what seemed like the most painstaking saga in living memory, Gylfi Sigurdsson is an Everton player. A man the club were silently resigned to eventually losing has moved on and like so often in the past, the club must plan for life without their star player.
Too many things for a title, but stop with the xenophobia accusations! by waynekerr55
I had planned to write this in a different fashion, but Bob Bradley's departure from the club changes a section of this blog. The conclusion was as expected. A seemingly good man and a tryer who simply wasn't up to the job. In short he should never have been given the job.
