Will be interesting to see how the two brothers get on in the middle of the park. I hope that they both do well. :thup:

As it is, I can't see beyond a 2-0 Leicester win today, with Vardy bagging at least 1.
The truth points to itself

Baffled how Sean is playing. He’s been that bad lately I’d rather have Hendrick in the middle.

Murphy getting dropped is dumb too

Why?

He’s a genuine direct wide player that seems to offer balance to us and he’s improving a lot. He can also take a decent free kick. While we don’t have ASM and Fraser I don’t get why he isn’t a shoe in for that wide spot.

Be surprised if anything other than comfortable Leicester victory. Better club than us in every possible aspect

So the midfield battle is Maddison, Tielemens and Ndidi  vs Matty. :lol:

One of the worst midfield lineups I’ve ever seen, and that’s saying something.

Absolutely criminal how little we’ve invested in such a key position.

Not even sure it's the worst midfield lineup this season

So he's back to consistently playing "Rafa's formation" again because he can't come up with anything himself huh, despite constantly whinging abut it previously. Clown.
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.

Our midfield is super aids. Leicester will continually just pass straight through it.

The only positive I can see (if it is one) is that we’ll play so deep that Vardy won’t be able to make runs.

Be back to 442 after a couple of defeats. Then back again.
Sir Bobby Robson: “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.”

Shortstaff will be chasing shadows for 70 mins until he’s hauled off for Hendrick

Why have Emily krap and Manquillo on the bench.  Stick Anderson or toure on.

I'd rather they just avoided talking about us anyway as it'll just be the usual Bruce wankathon and how we're all deluded. So just avoid it for me.

We will miss Hayden badly.

Don't think it will be too bad as we will be defending primarily and we have some pace up front. The personnel is fine, just depends on how they are deployed. If we just sit back we'll get nothing. If we are prepared to get players supporting the front three when we are in possession we have more than enough to get a result.

Rafa's defenders are superb tbh, Schar, Fernandez and Clark would always inspire confidence in defence.

If we are prepared to get players supporting the front three when we are in possession we have more than enough to get a result.

Any pace isn't even made use of because how deep we are usually, and how poorly we transition. We never win the ball back high to quickly spring into attack. We're not effective in breaking any opposition closing us down when deep. Whenever we do have the ball players are just so stationary and spread out. Compared to Leeds it's like a different sport we're playing.

All we can do with the ball is pass it along the before shelling into Wilson or Joelinton. Their not target men, and we don't even win any second, third balls. It's worse than anything Pardew, Carver ever threw up.

A handful of times a game we'll break into space, then we're relying on quality that isn't there to create anything.
