Humiliating, dreadful performance all round. Dean had a really poor game as well.

First time this season it looked like we let our heads drop, how we bounce back from this is vital.

After that I would definitely change Almo,Wesley, Louis and one from Al G or Trz. Bring back Engels, Fred and Conor. Could do with a striker to add. Didn't think Nakamba was the worst and should have stayed on.

Yep completely turned it in today.

Dean really needs to develop more varied game plans.

Where to start with that shambles.

No pressure on the next few games then. To be fair I did think this would be one of the most difficult games of our recent fixtures, we were nowhere near them

Can everyone take stock before conceding relegation in early December. We've been soundly beaten by one of the best sides in the country if not Europe at the moment.

Had a really bad run of fixtures, and if anyone thinks we WEREN'T going to be in a relegation battle after coming up through the playoffs, you're having yourself on. We've looked good in all but one of the games against teams we are ACTUALLY competing with this season.

That doesn't mean there haven't been poor mistakes from players and management today - but can we get a bit realistic
Sorry mate, but this is blind optimism. Weve played almost all of the other sides in the league, spent the GDP of a small country, and are hovering around the bottom three.
Id be optimistic and a little more patience if I could see at least small improvements in performance, team selection and subs, but frankly, were not. If anything were going backwards.
Being plucky underdogs will not keep us up. Smith and the players need a rocket. And fast.

Wesley will play in the next game. What does Kodjia need to do to at least be given a chance? That was simply dreadful and massive dumping on our fragile confidence and on our reasonable goal difference.

Begs the question why our new owners decided to give Dean a new contact.

For me they were comfortably the best side we've faced this season. Add in that we made a load of stupid mistakes, had a number of players below par and we're probably lucky it was only 4.

First 10 minutes I was more than happy with.

Shots, corners, decent passing.

After that oh dear indeed.

Whole Mings thing was massively self inflicted.

Still to only go in 2-1 down wasn't bad at all. We were still in the game if we didn't deserve to be. To then concede a very soft goal from a corner just after HT was typical us and killed the game. Afterwards it was a case of how many Leicester wanted and somehow it was only one. Heaton stopped it being 6 or 7.

Leicester are a very very good team. Judging from comments on the match thread seems many watched them for first time this season and got a shock at how good they actually are. The FBs flying forward and midfield rotation they've been doing since middle of September. Will finish comfortably in top 4 unless they get massive injury crisis.

We got properly schooled today. It happens I'm afraid. Newcastle lost 5-0 at Leicester in late September and they've only lost two games since and one was to us.

We need a response in Sheffield. The big success of today is not being 18th after spending most of the afternoon there on the live table. Norwich losing is also good in the long run.

Add Leicester to the list of teams I absolutely hate, beating us.

Spurs, Liverpool, Wolves, Chelsea, and now that lot. c***s.

Not good enough at all. Smith is a stubborn fucker, but if he doesn't change, he'll be out, sadly. I hope that isn't the case.

Thank god I'm not back home, having to deal with a Leicester wankfest.

A rubbish game. Not a single player deserves a single plaudit. Maybe Guilbert. He's been my favourite player this season.

Southampton gave up 9, we could've easily done the same barring Heaton.

Quickly losing faith in the manager, don't care for the romantic love-in anymore. No player accountability, poor substitutions, dropping points every other week, shit efforts.

Newcastle are up to 10th with Brooce at the helm and a crap side.

GET WESLEY THE HELL OFF MY TELEVISION SCREEN. Absolute do nothing waste of space.

McGinn, Elmo, Luiz all shit today. Will Dean ever make an adjustment? Its the same game plan week in and week out and it isn't working.
