Not just crashed, but also burst into flames by the look of it: https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-leicestershire-46006470This may need its own thread soon, but Leicester City’s owner’s helicopter crashes in the players’ car park.
At the scene
By BBC Sport commentator Ian Stringer
I have seen staff, backroom staff and [the] first team in tears here his evening. The reception area is described as silent, people looking around and crying and not knowing what to do and consoling each other.
I remember the owners taking over. I said hello to them in native tongue, their face lit up. I have generated relationships with them, seen them in Thailand in Bangkok in their home surrounding, they are really nice people.
The chairman looked at me today on the way to the executive box and said "hello and good afternoon".
We were keeping a close eye on him because of the nature of today's game and it is really eerie around Leicester at the minute this evening.
I think that's a safe bet, sadly. He always seemed to take the chopper home after each match. Also, if he wasn't on the chopper you think we would've heard by now.I’ll assume this may eventually be rolled up into its own thread, but Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, LCFC’s owner, may well have been on board the helicopter. Judging from the reaction of many around the team, he may likely be dead
I'm going to guess Real Madrid goes with Conte since Scolari, the youth team manager, seems to be too much of a long-shot for Florentino Perez. Perez did elevate Zidane to first-team manager from the same role as Scolari, but Zidane is Zidane and he had the confidence to make the move easily.Methinks Real Madrid will be in the market for a new Manager come Monday morning. Is that Mourinho’s music I hear?
Nobody in Palace land knows either. The first few games it was “match fitness”. That definitely isn’t the answer anymore, and the question is asked every week on the Palace podcast I listen to. We are all mystified.Admittedly I haven't seen much Palace this season but how the hell is Meyer not starting? It's been night and day since he came on. He's working his ass off too.
