Leicester City v Manchester City pre-match

Recommended Posts

It'd be nice to win this because we live in their heads rent free. 

 

One casual browse of their forum and at the mention of leicester they're in meltdown. Super bitter that we beat them earlier in the season.

We use every bit of motivation to amp ourselves for this battle. They may have high confidence and the players to change things but we have spirit and determination. if rogers puts together another masterclass where we frustrate them until they break then we pounce! like others have said Pep loves to

goad teams into playing into their trap. Its too easy for them. if we play tight, hold firm, close the spaces and not show any respect they will get pissy.

For sure Pep will throw his entire trillion dollar subs bench at us but we don't flinch. There defense has not been tested enough and only manu made good use

of their opportunities and scored. This is the game we need our Vardy to re-ignite. I swear if he gets one he's gonna go guns blazing for more. Nacho will have

a massive point to prove to his old team now too. It's gonna be a good game and all eyes will be on it. Whoever gets to mark Mahrez needs to know his strengths and his weaknesses. Study up!

We would need to park the bus and sit back and then win the game with the old fashioned Vardy counter attacks like the good old days. Shame Barnes is injured because his pace is vital for this tactic.

I wouldn't take too much comfort from the fact they play Dortmund three days later. I looked at their bench at Everton and there's no question that Man C's second XI would be in the top 4/6

Their rotated squad is often brilliant, likewise we rotate or have to switch it up through relentless injuries and yet we keep on delivering. Doesn't make that much difference to either side. Will be a very good game.

I can't even work out who their first 11 are these days.

Looking at the Blue Moon Forum a couple of things stand out 

 

* A lot of them seem to really hate us? Not sure if that's historical or due to the 2 - 5 - They seem to think we were diving rather than their own players diving in? 

* They are supremely confident - Around 72% thing they'll win which is reasonable in view of the run they've been on 

* A number of posters believe we are the 2nd best team in the league after them 

 

It appears as though they are playing Dortmund on the Tuesday after our game so they are concerned about injuries from the International break and that the Dortmund game is the priority

Might not be popular but Fuchs is the man to do a job on Mahrez hes done it before by knowing his game and getting tight very quickley.Risky though.

Maybe 2 or 3 years ago! Fuch's hasn't got the legs anymore. Mahrez would have him on toast
