Chris Armstrong scoring a hat tick for Spurs against us always sticks in my mind for some reason.

This list makes for grim reading.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Premier_League_hat-tricks

Andy Sinton, Efan Ekoku[4!], Chris Armstrong and Bradley fucking Allen.  All of them scored their only top flight hat-tricks against us.

Cordiali saluti, motherfuckers.

All horrendous games, the Bradley Allen one was by far the worst though (yes I know Ekoku scored 4 against us)

Steve Watson V Leeds, I'd forgot all about that one.

I'll probably jinx it now and they'll both score a hat-trick, but I think we'll keep Vardy and Mahrez quiet. It'll be someone like Marc Albrighton or Okazaki and for some reason, it'll feel 10 times more disappointing!

Hopefully we'll turn up and just be at them from the off, although I quite like the idea of hitting them on the counter - tighten things up at the back, which would make things difficult for them and use the pace of Rom, Deulofeu and Ross on the break.

Whilst we're on the subject of crap scorers - Esteban Fuertes anyone?

But Leicester play on the break, too. Some of their play really isn't very sophisticated. They punt the ball long to Vardy/Mahrez and rely on individual brilliance to score. Defensively they have that Kante lad who does a 'McCarthy' and covers every blade of grass. Huth as a no-nonsense 'stopper' at the back. Fair play to them for doing well this season but a few suspensions/injuries/lack of form and they'll drift away.

Oh, and Esteban Fuertes. Haha only goal before being deported, right? Hahahahahahah.

Back in the Ekoku era, my Nan(who isn't a massive football fan) used to always hear me and my uncle talking about footy

One day she says to us "does this Ekoku play for Man United?"

"Then why do you hate him so much?!"

"We don't!"

"Your always calling him that effing Ekoku!"
You think Lou Bega knocked it out of the park with Mambo number 1?!No but he kept at it!

Live on Monday night footy

Ricky van Wolfswinkel is another.

Scored one and was shipped out on loan by January.

It must be one of those things fans of all teams say but it defo happens to us more than anyone.

Its common knowledge that if a player is on a bad run and hasn't scored for ages he will score against us, happens all the time.

What about Carlton Palmer scoring a header from outside the box?
Cordiali saluti, motherfuckers.

I think Huth missing is a big chance for us. They're already quite leaky at their best, with their best defence playing, so I'm sure there'll be vulnerabilities for us to exploit. We really need to find that clinical, professional edge in this game when we create chances. Leicester will keep going at us when they have a chance to for the entire 90 minutes, so I think we'll need to be get more than 1 goal ahead.

What was noticeable on Monday night was how leggy they looked the last 20 minutes.  Lennon and Mirallas are a must for the last 20-30 minutes for me.

Kante has been fantastic for them. Seems to have unlimited energy. We have to be wary of their pressing.


Would hate to see Stones caught out by Vardy but I do fear it will happen

Leicester do concede a fair few goals, they are quite vulnerable from corners. I'm sure we've been working on them all week though so we should score from 3 or 4 set plays against them
