Yes I should have put a subject to facts disclaimer. But you can’t really get more brain dead if what has been widely reported is true.

No but the club do. I would be very intrigued to see what happens to wes at the end of the season. Not the first strike. 👀

How about a keystone cops celebration routine when Madders scores against Saints. Wes behind the sofa, Ayoze under the table, all the rest play the cops, that sort of thing.

 

It would need a bit of thinking through, obvs. :D

Having Morgan & Under back in training takes us pretty much back to full strength albeit Justin (long term) & Barnes who hopefully isn’t too far away. 
 

I think realistically we are looking at the below. Albrighton probably deserves to start after his cameo last week but I can’t see Rodgers taking Ricardo or Castagne out.

 

Kasper 

Ricardo

Fofana 

Evans 

Soyuncu

Castagne 

Ndidi

Tielemans 

Maddison

Vardy 

Iheanacho 

 

Ward, Amartey, Thomas, Mendy, Praet, Albrighton, Perez 

 

Morgan, Fuchs, Choudhury, Under all to miss out. 
 

Thankfully the squad is looking nice and competitive going into the massive run in! :D

I’m being pedantic and your point about squad strength stands, but we get 9 on the bench on Sunday

Even better! We can sling Fuchs & Under on there too then. 
 

No disrespect but it’s so refreshing to see a 9 man bench now that dosent have to include Dayley-Campbell, Leshabela, Suengchitthawon etc.

Yeah that's what I'd be hoping for.

We were playing with a back 4 at 2-0 down. 

We 100% came out for the second half with Castagne at RCB in a three. Ricardo had all the right side and when Albrighton came on he seemed to have a more central role. If we did change to a back 4 it was much later on

I’m sorry but, while I appreciate he’s a club legend and all, do you really think engaging in this behaviour (as the senior pro and club captain) makes him worthy, capable or competent of a role upstairs? 

Well as the club had basically confirmed he won't be come a coach but will be kept on I'd guess yes he will.be moved into a admin role yes.

Stuff the formations,  just hope Brendan puts the best 11 on the pitch and they play as well as they can. He needs to get them to start quickly though, I'm getting a bit sick of conceeding the first goal in really important games. 

I am hopeful but not confident.

Come Sunday night I'll be like that daft excited 18 year old that stood on the holte end all those years ago, full of so much hope

 

The only difference will be, a loss will not take the entire summer to get over!

 

I hope so anyway!

leicester having a bunch of party boy internal shenanigans , with lads who would rather party than compete for top four football serious

 

versus a southampton team that have had internal issues, ings out of contract, a team that has collapsed second half  of the season.

 

I wonder who will win the lose to man city in the final derby

 

Because sadly thats what it feels like given the current two teams form.

Is this a poor attempt at satire or your genuine thoughts?

...form goes out the window in this match!!!

 You can bet Southamptons' focus would have been centred on the cup in their last few games.

The bookies probably have us as favourites, but l see it as a 50/50 split.

Southampton can fully focus on the cup & we often don't perform when it really matters.

I hope I'm wrong.

To be fair Leicester haven't won at the new Wembley and we've lost our last 2 FA Cup Semi finals so you're not the problem I don't think pal 😂
