How are you feeling about the Cardiff match?

Recommended Posts

Apprehensive rather than dreading. I've no idea how the players are going to respond - I'm concerned for them I guess. It's going to be an emotional event and that could well get to some. It'll get to me, I'm sure. I've no idea how I'll respond once the match is under way and I expect players are feeling the same. I think it's probably better on balance for everyone that we get things underway though. Tomorrow is going to be difficult for sure, but I'm not sure whether next week is going to be any different - perhaps more difficult. The players will have a different set of factors to contend with, let's put it like that. So I think in that respect it's good that the Cardiff match is going ahead - we can get more of a handle on our match response. Next week is going to be more of a testimonial and that's going to present its own set of emotions.

Wouldn't say I'm dreading it. With every game I can't go to I always wish I could have gone, and I feel this even more with this game. Although not being there, there's sure to be a very weird, different atmosphere. I've no doubt the players will play like they've never played before. The squad have shown so much professionalism and resolve after last Saturday and adrenaline will carry them through I hope. I do wonder how much the travelling to Thailand straight after will play on their minds. 

 

It's pre-match where it may be a bit uncomfortable or uneasy and emotions may take over. 

I wish them and the fans all the luck though. After this week, it'd be nice to get the 3 points to bring back home for Vichai.

I'm hoping that it's a moment of catharsis, but it really could all go quite badly and I wouldn't be shocked. It could also go swimmingly and it would be equally unsurprising.

I’m concerned they’ll be trying too hard and someone like Vardy could end up getting sent off for going in too strong.

Very strange feelings about this match! 

Usually gutted when we lose,  but know that whatever way it goes tomorrow,  win, lose or draw I'm going to feel pretty much the same.

Weird. I've sort of been in limbo this week, sort of looking forward to it as a bit of normality, but at the same time it seems like a really difficult occasion

Positive because it’s better to have our first game away from home rather than yards from where this all happened and also because it’s an opportunity to pay our respects on the pitch and in the stands whilst starting the process of getting back to a semblance of normality. 

 

The result doesn’t matter.

This week has been full of heartbreak, sorrow, reflection and an extraordinary collective show of mournful respect, appreciation and adoration for our beloved late chairman. And this will continue in Cardiff.

 

But once the match kicks off I know exactly how I will feel. It will be the same as I feel for every other Leicester City game I have ever watched. And I believe the players and most supporters will feel the same way.

 

I want us to win.

Would have to be something very obvious, can't see a ref wanting to go down in history as the guy who sent off a lcfc player for this fixture.

I'm going but just want it over with tbh and can't pretend I'm looking forward to it. Like others have said, it all feels surreal at the moment. We probably need this though, to re-establish a chunk of normality. I suspect I'll feel much better in 24 hours or so.

I feel the players will play with passion, they have chosen to play this game and regardless of result I’m sure they would have given their all... this is the first time that a result or even a performance doesn’t matter to me at all, I know they will be playing from the heart

Played myself once in a similar situation when our assistant coach passed away suddenly. Both teams got together for a moment of silence at the halfway line....our team found it difficult to play....mentally we just weren't there.

 

It will likely be a tough match for the team to stay focused

I would also say, not sure if already mentioned so sorry if has... there shouldn’t be a vote on player performance after tomorrow 

 

i feel they all should get a 10 for walking out tomorrow

I'm all for this "performance for The Boss" but let's be honest, nothing will beat a win for "The Boss". He travelled to watch his beloved Club win football matches, 3 points Saturday will feel like the biggest 3 points we've ever collected. Sending all those attending my best, will be an incredibly difficult afternoon both on and off the pitch. Safe travels people x

All over the place, I'm not so concerned about the result as the performance.

 

Part of me just wants to tell them to go out there and just play football, forget about the result. A part of me doesn't want to see us get badly turned over. As someone has already stated I also don't want them to go out there wound up with so much desire that we finish the game with 9 or 10 on the pitch and a defeat. 

 

I would love us to be approaching it like a normal away game, but we all know it's far from that.

I'm hoping to see 3,000 City fans behind the boys for a full 90, as they try their best to make our chairman proud. And if people don't feel like cheering or singing so soon after the event that's fine, but I really hope there's no calling of any players or Puel.

Are you dreading the match as it will be a tough day to get through...or are you keen for the action to get started again?

I think it’s the right decision by the players,

but I think we’ll either collapse and lose 2 or 3 nil,

or the opposite,go out and smash them 2 or 3 nil,

i really don’t know wot to expect

Yeah, pretty sure it won't be a boring 0-0.

 

Personally I think we'll be going all out to win, which might leave us vulnerable at the back. Could be something like 4-3.
