  1. Well not great so far. Let’s see what happens at half time and see what subs are made (and when they are made) I’d like to see Townsend and Doumbia get on.

  2. The player called Anita is Leicester’s best player by a country mile. Stops all our good play in a second. Cunningly he is kitted out as one of our team. Surely the officials will spot this

  3. Just hope put Townsend on for the big Sisy (cant spell his name) he’s been useless so lets get the new lad on

  4. Sissoko has put a shift in there like. His workrate and desire has certainly improved – yes his final ball could be better but I think that will come.
    Him & Gini have been involved a lot in that first half. I want to see more from Perez personally – if not then get Townsend on over there for me.

  5. That was a great finish from Leicester and that apart it was pretty even. Okazaki has 47 goals in 96 games for Japan. Got hattricks against Togo and also Hong Kong so the opposition wasn’t that strong. But still… Rooney has made a career out of flat track bullying the likes of San Moreno.

  6. Leicester have just hit on a freak season, where players like Vardy, Huth, Kante and Mahrez are all in the form of their career and the right age. It will be interesting to see if the club can manage transfers to maintain success or will they slip back to mid table? I personally think they will struggle to carry this into next season. Easy come easy go and like I said, freak season when 7-8 players are in the form of their lives.

  7. Well I thought they started falling apart defensively after their goal , I just hope Rafa can get them up second half. Thought Leicester looked a bit jittery before that goal, we looked organised but not after they scored.

  8. So Vardy was offside when he assisted Okazaki. D’oh!

    I have seen nothing positive from Sissy Sharpy. Anita has actually played well from what I’ve seen.

  9. Mitro is the player who looked reborn to me. If we’d played like this all season and taken some of those chances, we’d be fine. Time is running out though. Need need to test Simpson more, we know how he backs off.

  10. Reading the comments it is clear fans have their favourites and hates. Anita for me could score a hat trick and I would still think he was rubbish and I guess it is the same with Sissoko for others. Hey Ho that’s football

  11. Sham – the lad hasn’t stopped running all half. He’s got into the box more this half than I’ve seen all season, stuck a couple of canny balls into the box and closed down well. His decision making on when to play the pass has let him down and he should have got out of Mits way – but I don’t see how he’s been terrible or stood out for individual criticism based on that 45mins personally.

  12. I am going to make an official complaint to the FA about Leicester. There is just no way on earth that a set of players can be so fit! They just never stop running!!!

  13. One thing that hasn’t changed is the fact we are pretty clueless in the final third. Maybe De Jong could help us there?

  14. Sham – I just meant I’m surprise he was a stand out for criticism ahead of one or two others that’s all.

  15. Sharpy Obertan does a lot of running too to be fair. It’s progress I want to see, not headless chicken syndrome. He gave away a free kick in a dangerous position just now too.

    Fingers crossed he makes me eat my words this half mate.

  16. Leicester seem to know what each other is doing, who’s making the runs and where to put the ball
    we look like a team that has never played together.
    Just awful

  17. Has he just gone 4-4-2 now then?

    Move Perez up with Mit, Sissoko left and Townsend right – Shelvey & Gini through the middle

  18. no room now
    Leicester happy to sit deep and absorb our pitiful attacks
    game over i’m afraid

  19. I booed Sissoko last week and I’m not his biggest fan – and yes he should have shot there.

    But in his defence tonight – he’s not a left winger, yet pretty much everything has went down that way in the first hour of this game.

    We’ve seen hardly anything of Janmaat or Perez on the right – maybe Townsend will change that.

  20. These will get nervous and sit back like they’re nearly doing the longer it stays at only 1. We can get at them.

    Still a couple of subs to use too. Need to keep it tight now for next ten mins.

  21. Stuart79:
    They have so much energy.How it is possible? We need their fitness coach.

    Because they are league leaders Stu and that confidence will give you the extra yard, they are running on adrenalin .

  22. Townsend trying to be clever with the backheel took our momentum away and nearly cost us a goal there.

  23. Encouraging signs but same old issues up front. Although we looked more hungry and tidier at the back.

    Our season isn’t going to be decided by our games against Leicester ect.
