      Pre-Match: Leicester v Liverpool (Mon 27th Feb 8pm)
      : Feb 14, 2017 10:37:44 pm »
      Payback time.

      Last season we beat them at home on Boxing Day and then they did us over 2-0 at their ground on the way to winning the title.  The fuckers.

      We need to build on our last result.  These are staring down the barrel of relegation - exactly the kind of game we struggle with.  The players should watch last season game beforehand and hopefully we will deliver no mercy.

      Gung ho redmen!  Let's get 30+ points from our last 13 games.

      Considering they're position, being at home and in general how they play they're not going to park the bus on us are they?

      We can deal with them.

      Hoping to go to this game, although it's not 100% sure it will happen just yet.
       Although we've struggled against the lower sides, these are the current champions  :laugh: laughable really, just shows what a fluke it was and they are certainly being found out this season, the way they've been playing recently and if the Spurs game is anything to go by, then we should absolutely annihilate Leicester, can't bloody wait !!

      I did ask shortly after the season started for the odds. Wish I'd had a go cos i think it was about 120/1 back then.

      Anyone know how many of our lads are away for internationals?  I'm guessing that Mane, Matip, and Milner will all get a nice little break.  Any others?  Would be great if Coutinho and Firmino got to stay in England, but I can't see that happening....

      There isn't an international break until the end of March.

      Have to go for this one from the get go again.

      Don't give them a minute on the ball and we will absolutely destroy them. As previosuly said, they are in a relegation battle, at home, so they can't just sit back and play for the draw.

      4-1 to the Redmen.

      Hmmmm....  I just assumed that a 2 week break had to be down to internationals.  Honestly, the rest should do us a world of good.  Many of our players looked knackered during January.  This will give us a chance to get the legs fresh again before we start the final stretch of league games.

      We know we're under pressure to get three points here, its a must for us, but I'd say it's even more important for Leicester. They are under incredible pressure to get something from this game.

      Games are running out and for those in a relegation fight home games become more important than usual. They have to get three points so I can't see them sitting back for 90mins. They might sit and defend for certain parts of the game but they definitely will, at some point, show some sort of attacking initiative and that's when we have to capitalise.

      For that reason I expect goals in this game but ultimately I think we will finish the game comfortable winners. 3-1 Im going for.

      Same team that played against Tottenham please boss.

      Think Leicester will have a go, there is talk regarding Ranieri not being unsettled by speculation over his future - we all know what that means.
      Ranieri will be concerned about his team's dramatic descent of the league and the effect it is having on his perceived credibility, camping out in their half is exactly what they will not do in front of their own supporters and the team will be instructed as such.

      Should be an end to end game and good to watch.

      Disagree with those saying Leicester won't park the bus. I think against us that is the only thing they can do. Even when they were winning last season it was mainly with counter-attack. Not an out-an-out bunker formation I understand, but the game when they beat us (after we had beaten them at home), mostly what they did was absorb and then Vardy scored either a world-class or a totally lucky goal on the break (you decide).

      I definitely don't expect them to engage with us like Spurs did. That will be our challenge and THAT presumably is what the team is working on at La Manga (besides working on their suntans, that is).

      Never too early for a pre-match thread :) Leicester aren't in great form and have a couple of games to play before we play them. Add to that we're coming off a good win, and will be fresh, would be hopeful we can get three more points.
      But it's like still nearly 2 weeks away, so bit early for the team selection yet ...  :cool-smiley-027:

      Hate playing teams in the relegation zone, this is going to be a battle but we should be ready with all the time for training. An own goal would do for me as long as we get the 3 points!

      They may be playing sh*te but they were before they mounted a pretty impressive escape 2 years ago and you can't discount them winning the league.

      If they have a half decent Champions League game I reckon they'll be well up for sorting themselves out. Might remind them how they got there - that kind of thing.

      If the players think we'll walk this like some fans do then we'll get nothing.

      Teams in a scrap ALWAYS seem to raise their game against us so we can't have that attitude we have going into games sometimes where we look like we'd rather be anywhere else in the world than out battling on the pitch.

      Need to build on Spurs win and get this season back on track.
