I honestly think we'd still have gone down regardless of if we'd won that game. Let's face it the team was shocking. As for the game itself though yes it was all too predictable once they scored their first.

I'm amazed we blew it that day, it's obvious what he wanted the players doing.



Wow, this is the same time as the substitution I highlighted earlier. Doesn't look in control does he??

After all our summer transfer dealings I was actually excited about how the season would go. I was looking forward to mid table at least after a few years of struggle. Looking back now those optimistic days of mine seem as long ago as when I believed in Father Christmas.

Me too. With Sherwood in charge I thought we'd lose a few but win a few as well with plenty of goals. We were right but unfortunately they were all at one end every game. The kit was nice at least.

The kit was nice because it never got dirty.

I'm not sure if it was the moment when it all became inevitable, but it was the day that proved Sherwood was a chancer and out of his depth.

Sherwood gets plenty of flak on here (plenty of it justified) but that game we played really well for an hour (outplaying that seasons champions) and the goal Gil scored was fantastic.

Some of the spells in games we had under Sherwood we looked a very decent side going forward (Palace away just before we had another decent half but couldn't score and then defensive errors killed us).

Of course it all fell apart from that day and our league form collapsed.

Edit: Just realised Kante didn't start for them that day and he came on at 0-2. Probably as crucial for Leicester not just winning the game but getting him integrated into the team.

I always thought he was trying to make the point to the players about turning over play quicker as the Leicester goals were flying in (he mentioned that in his emotional interview afterwards) but given the score it actually seems to me he was gesturing at the ref he wanted the subs on in very exaggerated fashion.

He's doing a gesture that you would tell 11 years old's to run around a bit and create space.
