    We haven't been dire , generally our defence has been pretty sound , apart from the games against the top two of course. We have struggled to score that is the major problem but we always knew that if Vardy had issues it would be a major blow. When a team has an extended drop in form there is only one place to look so criticising individual players is not the answer , we have been here before of course.

    All your points are spot on! To be fair  the defence has been pretty good and, having looked at it, another 9 goals in that 'dire' period ( and that's only one every other game) could have gained us an extra 11 points and probably got us to a cup final! Maybe shows we should've got a loan striker in the january window. Shows our reliance on JV  (only one Vardy goal in those 18 matches)

    Many (including myself) had the same opinion as this about James Maddison. 

     

    I remember more or less typing the same thing up, because there is always the chance that it turns out this way. 

     

    Theres also the chance that under a better coach Bowen actually improves a great deal when he joins. 

     

    For a huge fee, I’d stay clear. But for the price being indicated, even if we just farmed him out and sold him... we’d almost certainly make a profit. 

     

    Just look at the summer recruitment, we would have all been more excited about signing Sarr and look how that’s turned out.  Top 2 or not, we still aren’t the draw we think we are and still need to be creative in the market.

    Some really good points here. Particularly the comment about Sarr - God he looked awful at the weekend! Sure glad we missed out on him and JoHandbags down at Brighton!

    Hardly rocket science is it? He needs to be more clinical in front of goal, he's producing some great assists but needs to start converting himself

    He should be made to sit down and watch the SENSATIONAL

    goals scored by a youngster at West Brom last season. Er, what was his name?? Ah,yes -- Harvey Barnes!! BRILLIANT, BRILLIANT (and confident) football!!

    They have been down to ten men in both of them though. We really should beat these but our record against Arse is just so so appalling and not just recently either. One of the reasons we need to beat them is that defeat away to them is a near certainty so this is our only realistic chance to take points off them.

    Just thinking exactly the same myself. Other than these 2 wins I reckon we haven't beaten them for about 95 years (or did Glover and Stringfellow score in a win in the early 70's ?)!! Looking at their likely defence / midfield I can't see them finishing the game with 11 men again!

    Luiz, papadopoulos, chambers, kolasinac, Torreia and Gwenda Oozy will not be able to live with the pace of Vardy, Barnes and Ricky or the running of Ayoze, Youri or Madders.

  5. Intro. Tonight.

    Gary:  " Good evening. Welcome to Match of the Day. For the first time ever we will not be opening with a game from todays' premier league Matchday 10 programme. As this is the time of year for hair raising ( insert some random joke about Shearer /Murphy ...) horror stories we thought we should bring you one of those!

     

    Seriously though; in 131 years of top flight football in this country, it is not often that we can bring you record breaking scenes.

     

    Let us join our commentary team for last nights game at St. Mary's where the Southampton manager has promised the fans that his team will 'win dirty'  !!! ..... "

     

    Cue the SMUGGEST LOOK EVER seen on British tv!!
