    Despite their very best efforts, the Penny Stack world record attempt at Beaulieu only managed 104 machines, 27 short of the Leicester record set in 2003.

    There have been several attempts to beat our record and this was the closest.....will it ever be beaten I wonder?

    When I originally came to Leicester in 1984, City were in the First Division, next year they'll be in the First Division again - whats the problem?

    Anyway Milan Mandaric has promised to stay with Leicester until we gain our rightful place in the Premiership - The Blue Square Premiership :blush::blush::thumbsup:

    What, so you see more than 100 Pennies every day and you've organised a Guinness World Record yourself?
