The fixture which for the last 5 or 6 years we've served up our worst performance of the season in. Opening a new year with it again, if its as bad as last time I'm going to commit seppuku.

(Mainly because I know a couple Leicester fans and they're both a pair of c***s)
But...6 in a row. But...Calciopoli.

I reckon Haydn wears pure concentrated pheromones.

Bet he goes 5 at the back against these lot too, because they play football and are in the top 4, and so can now be categorised as one of the "big boys"  :rolleyes:

I'll be watching the games, and I'll be talking about the teams. If it's a disaster it will be quite humorous and exactly what Mike Ashley deserves and to be honest I'll quite enjoy it. I am totally indifferent to results and the team success going forward.

Now, in certain games should the team do well, I will be happy more for the players, because I feel bad for them mostly, and I still want to see some of them do well. I will still feel comfortable giving the team credit when they do well. I just don't care about any outcome at this point and none of my money goes into anything to do with Mike Ashley's operations.

Just remembering this game last season where we had 3 injuries by half time then Schar pulled up within a minute of the second half.

Played 45 minutes with 9 men plus Lejeune with 1 leg

Played 90 minutes of football in total v these last season with 10 men and with no ASM. By god I hope its watchable, been some absolute shockers from us in this fixture last few years.

Darlow, Yedln, Fede, Schar, Clark, Ritchie, Matty, Shelvey, Sean, Almiron, Wilson

5-3-2 with Matty and Shelvey deeper, Sean as a 10 of sorts further forward and Almiron and Wilson up top. Almiron there to break on counter and also put in a shift defensively with his energy and pressing. There’s no point having Murphy play or Joelinton. I think a midfield 3 is needed versus Leicester.

On the flip side, those two Rafa specials at their place were tremendous. Tactical masterclass.

Then we went there last season...

You've given that far too much thought. Luckily for Leicester, Steve Bruce won't have.

I fancy us for a point here if we can play with the same effort as v Liverpool . 1-1 with a Wilson penalty for us.

I don’t think Sean Longstaff and Shelvey should both start together ever again after seeing how much better we are with some legs in midfield and them plodders out the team. Suppose one of them will have to start though as we don’t really have any other decent options.

Away win banker of the week. We'll play exactly the same way we always do, too deep, forwards isolated and feeding off scraps and the defense over-worked. A draw at best if Leicester have an off day like Liverpool.

Oh aye, away from home v these there's been good moments. At SJP though it's been utterly f***ing miserable.

Bruce seemed far to cocky in his interview today, Leicester could easily do a Southampton on us and then its back to the training ground.

3-0 Leicester, too easy for them, they'll lay off us in the second half to conserve energy with the job already done and we'll still struggle to get out our own half, the one time we do will see them score their 3rd and game over. Bruce will say we were in it up until that 3rd goal and had our effort gone in it would have been a different game, but we'll roll wor sleeves up and go again.
