Just passed Winchester on way up. All of us in car are of an age to remember the Ron Saunders era. Great memories.

Can’t see anything other than a loss today. We need to get our house in order and not perform well but lose. Everton have had new manager bounce and Southampton could well get something from Newcastle. Let’s hope we get something but Leicester are in form and we don’t have the consistency

I think we can win this at home. A couple of things need to come together and one if them is Big Wes getting his goal. The other being the back 4 being totally switched on for 90+ mins.
Anyway, putting my money where my mouth is, I have a score on at odds approaching 4/1 for the win and we're certainly not as bad as that. 3-2 Villa, Jack, Wes, Luiz, Pereira and Fuchs for them.

Do it for Ron, Villa. Or Deano, or us.

Guilbert on bench Elmo starts, it seems every time Trez scores he gets benched

On an occasional Cross City Line train at the moment.

Hoping the team will be channelling Ron's never-say-die spirit today to ease our collective jitters...

Guilbert on the bench, I'd have brought him straight back in to be honest.  Leicester have played us a compliment by changing their formation to flood the midfield.  Gonna be a hard one. Konsa keeps his place, I wonder if that's to do with his pace, against Vardy.
