Massive game.  We need to get momentum going again- an FA Cup semi would be a good time to do it!

 

If we win, will Hasenhuttl's job be under threat.  If we lose, Rodgers will take some flak.

 

 

Any sort of semi would be good to get momentum going.

looking good ......

 

Assuming my official LF test on Saturday is negative and my at home test on Sunday the same, then it’s ‘come on the city’ !!!!

 

be fun to see how many of us go nuts if we score!  I have experience of sitting on my hands (most notably in brugge) but it’s gonna be way too hard to do that when there isn’t any ‘physical threat’ around me ! 

Have you considered adoption? I'm quite well behaved and tidy up after myself.

Random question but has there been any guidelines on what you can / can't wear? or are you able to wear a LCFC shirt?

No idea - given that there arent supposed to be supporters there you’d think it’s not a good idea to turn up in colours .....part of the testing nature of the event is presumably what happens if people are turned away at the turnstiles .... I guess they may be looking for an excuse to exclude some ticket holders and see how that goes

Soton were rubbish last night so a good sign

Probably took their eye of the ball due to having Sunday on their mind. 

 

I imagine it didn't help our performance against West Ham much either.

So we’re worried about how bad Southampton were last night, and how good West Brom were.

 

We do like to worry.

 

PS: I’m worried 

I'd question how much of a Leicester City you are if you weren't worried about us coming up against a team who were hopeless in their most recent game.

Dont think so, When i applied to be part of the trial, it was for this game and the league cup final.  I dont give a crap about watching Man City or Spurs so requested 0 tickets.  They did ask if you are supporting either of those teams so im guessing you could do a full John Terry if thats your thing!

We got any history of dodgy decisions with Kavanagh or Tierney?

 

Mike Dean got the other match

Kavanagh has fooked us over on many an occasion in the past. He was the ref that missed the Rob holding YMCA handball against Arsenal a few seasons back, sent maddison off for diving etc. He's one of the worst refs going, nearly as bad as Pawson.

What system would you play? We have 1 winger who is very workmanlike and very little pace elsewhere.

 

I keep looking at what else we can do and I'm stumped. Our squad is horribly restricted.

....the diamond is an option and might just be the option we take without going to a back 3 in this instance!!!

With Ndidi at the base, Tielemans and Praet as the #8's and Maddison at the top of the diamond. The only unusual part of the team would be Castagne at Right-Back and Thomas at Left-Back and Ricardo on the bench.

I'd not be against that once Maddison is fully fit, suppose Perez could be used until then.

Could Albrighton be used on the right or left of a diamond? Something like:

 

Kasper

 

Ricardo

Evans

Fofana/Soyuncu 

Timmy

 

Ndidi

 

Albrighton

Tielemans

 

Maddison/Ayoze

 

Vardy

Nacho

 

To be honest as I write that it feels like a square peg in a round hole... just feel like he deserves to start.

Rogers has this week to train and find the best formation with the players available and drill into them that they have to play at 110% from minute 1. To the point of brainwashing to be brutally honest! Then lets see what southampton have in the locker. We should be able to edge out this game as long as we don't do stupid careless stuff in defence and gift them a lead like we did for the hammers. That is not acceptable. Dig deep and find that mental strength that aided their wins in the past against the big hitters. show them videos in fact to get them juiced up. We can do this!

A great win at Wembley and we go into our remaining premier league fixtures on high confidence but a lose could be catastrophic and hard to shake.

Kavanagh is the worst ref in the division, I've never seen him have a good game. We're in for a treat

 

Maddison has to be back in and prove a point, and we have to go back to a four. Drop Vardy (it's about time) and let's see what Kelechi can do on his own for a change. Ricardo and Albrighton up with him, Thomas deserves a go.

Schmeichel

Castagne Evans Soyuncu Thomas

Ndidi

Tielemans Maddison

Ricardo Iheanacho Albrighton

 

Subs: Ward, Amartey, Fofana, Fuchs, Mendy, Choudhury, Praet, Perez, Vardy

I like the idea of Vardy on the bench not starting to give him something to think about. He needs a re-charge or change of heart or something. We've tried everything and nothing has worked for him so far. He's not even making great assists so we need to help him out of this rut. He's not done just yet. When i see the lewondowskis and Cavanis still scoring goals it gives me hope for Vardy. He just has to find another way.
