Sick of those who need to jump in front of the queue before any official information is announced.
"What is a club in any case?
Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city.
It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love." – Sir Bobby Robson

Absolutely awful :(

‘Failure upon takeoff’ sounds suspicious as well

Oh my word. I lived there for two years and Leicester is a bit of a soft spot for me as I went school near there too. I do hope that it is better than we fear.

Sky reports conflicting this.  Apparently eye witnesses reporting a 'flat spin' causing the crash.  I don't see how a fire would cause the helicopter to stack in sideways.  Mechanical failure, crash, then fire seems much more plausible.

Oh that's tragic man no one should go to a football game and not come home. This reminds me of the Clutha pub helicopter crash in Glasgow. I was due to go to that pub that night with a few work colleagues to see the gig there but we changed our mind at the last minute and went elsewhere

Don't want to be awful here but modern helicopters don't fall out of the sky without good reason, I'd be amazed if this was mechanical failure

How long after the match did this happen? I presume there wasn’t a large crowd of people in the car park at the time? Or at least I hope not

Yeah based on the replies on that second tweet it looks like a hoax about the cousin. People are creeps, man.
