A few weeks ago we were mourning Ron Saunders. I can just imagine his response if anyone said we shouldn't bother turning up, or celebrating a win.

Leicester are desperate for this, hence them risking a 80% Vardy when they shouldnít really considering they wanT CL. WE NEED TO ENSURE WE ARE AT O

if we get through we will probably lose

But
Southampton got battered 9-0 a few weeks ago by Leicester yet best them on their own patch a couple of weeks back
every game is different

the line up against City was the most defensive Iíve ever seen
it was a White Flag line up and it said we are shit and we donít believe we can do anything against you, do please take the ball of us and score as many as you like
Pathetic

hopefully if we get through (big if) we will be a bit more positive
You know like Palace, Norwich, Newcastle, Wolves etc who didnít roll over and die like we did






A bit harsh. Attacking wise, we didn't have a lot of options and it was the same side that got us points against Watford, Brighton and a decent draw at Leicester. I just think it was a case of us not being able to touch them rather than us rolling over and dying.

edit. Just looked at the team and I forgot he left Tresequet on the bench,

Maybe Chester might come in? Bit of a risk having him backup centre back with very little football played. Konsa's form has been quite mixed anyway.

That said, I don't think Smith has any alternative but to start with Samatta.

Drinkwater will start. And he'll set up a goal.

For us, before you all start.

Maybe that was just a test to see who was paying attention...

Okay, Ads 11 then. Hourihane for Luiz with a good half an hour to go.

I see Vardy has recovered in record time from his injury.

Drinkwater played for Burnley in the cup earlier this season.  Knowing our luck Samatta probably made a substitute appearance for Peterborough.
