Would like to win this. I don't like Brendan Rodgers.
2-2

I have a bad feeling about this game. Leicester won their last game and will be right up for this one. Our main problem as a team right now is that we can attack really well at times, we can boss a game at times, and we can defend "robustly-ish" at times - however we ONLY pull these things together (like Cardiff game) when the oppo are low on confidence and lack a real threat upfront.

So if we can clear the slate from last game, and give it a real go again, we might win, but if Gracia makes us "tight and defensive" looking, we will not have a a cutting edge and will lose this one.

Tbh I am sick of hearing how we are "best of the rest" or looking like a Europa cup candidate etc every time we win a couple of games, as a club we "talk" far too much .. We are NOT the 7th best team in the Prem until we finally finish there, we WILL finish somewhere between 13th and 7th - and then we can crow or moan all we like. (I guess its the media and Wobby that come up with most of this sort of rubbish, but I just don't believe it til it happens .!)

Well that was out the blue (Gray) .

Cannot say we deserved that as such but it's 3 points and nice finish .

Thought we put ourselves under pressure a lot probably not helped by ref being anti Troy and a few bookings .

Deeney immense, Doucs and Caps bossed it until Mr Moss whipped his cards out.
Pereyra poor again.

Well slap me in the face, again. I thought we looked sloppy on the attack and made one big mistake (lack of pace in Mapps) but some of our football out of defence was sublime, and without the ball we put up a great barrier to stop them.
I tend to view the Leicester squad as potentially 7th best in the Prem, so I view this result as one of our best. We slacked off after the hour mark but that last minute goal was brilliant.!

I agree - good first half but they controlled the 2nd without doing much .

Probably didn't help our 3 strongest players got booked and we were a bit flat footed for Vardy 'a goal .
Got the win though !

The team's defensive shape was outstanding all day. Gracia clearly knows what he's about and the players have bought in. Pereyra reeks of a bloke with no confidence just now. He passed the ball many times when I felt he would have attacked earlier in the year. He needs a goal in the worst way. Can't say enough about how well Deeney played. Worked his socks off and provided great link up play a lot of it one touch. I never realised that he had so much of that in his game.

Have to say Pereyra has gone downhill since those Chelski rumours.

True, but it's also the most he's played in a season in years. He's not the stoutest of individuals. He may be a bit worn down. All that said, he looked energetic enough to me at the weekend, just turned and played backwards more than I thought he would have.

We did only have about 40% of the ball which didn't really suit either him or GD really.

Trouble is, Hughes is now showing Pereyra up lately. Hughes has really come on this season, much more robust than I had expected.
Also I want mention Jaanmat, who I thought had one of his best box to box 90 mins in a watford shirt. His defensive work and interplay with Hughes and Doucoure was excellent...
