He was a great from the 70s and 80s. No dress sene, but ahead of his time as a player. Google will tell you much more than me

I'd settle for a draw but I've got a really strange feeling that we will beat them. I wonder how Mourinho...I mean Karanka will set us up as the I've got a feeling we could tweak the system to a 4-3-2-1 like someone else said to frustrate them like Mourinho does against tough sides away from home.

That would be myself p_mards, I got the idea when watching MOTD 2 extra when theycwhere discussing the chelski vs man u game. And then thinking about it Jose has always been one to make sure they never lose and frustrating Leceister with 4-3-2-1 might then get the fans on their back and that is our time to then attack

will be glad for a point against a form side.

2-2 seems to be a popular score... but would love it if we can keep a clean sheet.

 

so 0-0 for me... with the hope of a continued streak of luck... 1-0 boro win

cant see many goals in this one, scoreline depends on if adomah and kamara are fit imp, without them I would say 1-0 loss, if they are both fit 2-1 boro

Riding on our luck too much just recently, back to earth with a bump 3-0 to Leicester

 

A bit of luck, but often playing well, and nothing wrong with winning ugly in the last match. If we lose I don't think it will be a case of back to earth with a bump though. I think most on here realise the task we are facing given their form, albeit some optimistic scoreline predictions (a draw is optimistic)

 

I'd settle for a draw but I've got a really strange feeling that we will beat them. I wonder how Mourinho...I mean Karanka will set us up as the I've got a feeling we could tweak the system to a 4-3-2-1 like someone else said to frustrate them like Mourinho does against tough sides away from home.

 

I would be absolutely chuffed with a draw. Would be a fantastic result given Leicester's form and keeps the unbeaten run going.

 

Also agree about the interest in the formation choice. I wouldn't even be that surprised if Jose might have suggested this to AK, albeit AK is still his own man. Think I'd prefer us to stick with the 4-2-3-1, but who am I to argue with the special one! Maybe Butterfield in instead of Emnes behind the striker, slipping into central midfield a little more naturally when defending.

I' d go, with pretty much the same team, but bring in Kai for Main. I think AK will try and keep some consistency. I can't see beyond a draw, 1 - 1, maybe.

 

Given

Varga, Ayala, Williams, Friend

Leadbitter, Whitehead

Ledesma, Emnes, Adomah

Kamara

Right this minute I will gladly settle for a good "road point" as I feel it will be a very tight game as often they are against Leicester and if our luck holds like not losing a player or missing a penalty and the pitch is not covered in snow then we can gives The Foxes a very good game.

 

This could be a game with just a single goal deciding the outcome and maybe just maybe Leicester's winning run will come to an end.

 

Massive game and one to judge where we stand against the top and middle of the road.

 

Have no doubt that they will test our defence early and pile pressure on us but they do need to take into account our break away speed and I did read on one of their forums Leicester fans making the same comments. They will fear Carayol and Albert if fit.

 

Speed and control will be vital

Really hoping Kamara and Adomah are deemed fit to play. Going to this one so hoping for a good counter attacking performance. No doubt Leicester will pose a lot more problems than Millwall, Charlton et al. I reckon if we keep Dyer and the other winger quiet then we have a decent chance. I worry for our full backs. Will need help from ledesma/Carayol and Adomah (or whoever) Maybe a game Chalobah to make a big impression too, he needs to prove a point following his stint at Forest? Chelsea considered him for first team squad following form last year but something went wrong or him...

the two on form teams in the Champo.

 

Leicester have been on a ridiculous run and looked a little lucky at Leeds, hopefully Karanka has got his match prep on them in place, which im sure he has

I feel we will have to score at least one; I'm convinced Nugent will score against us, as he almost always does! I would love us to sneak a 1-0 win, would be very happy with a draw of any kind and am expecting a 2-0 defeat.

 

All bases covered then!

I don't feel that this is an especially big game.

 

It's an excellent benchmarker, but it's not going to determine whether we make the play offs or not.

 

There are much more important games to come against teams around us and the play off spots.It would be nice to keep the momentum going. It's only a big game in the sense that EVERY game is a big game!

    • Lee was a decent player at his level...all-time top scorer in K-League ...the step up was just too much for him...apparently still playing....hasn't got any quicker though
    • I’d quite like to give it a go if you’re still wanting volunteers?
    • Looks decent on his highlights video, so did Dong Gook Lee and Alves though!  
    • I suggested Gnanduillet as a cheap Gestede so we can use our money on creative midfielders, I thought Fletcher and Britt were brilliant since the restart personally and is more than a good enough strikeforce for top 10 They could both score 15+ if we sign 2 wingers and a number 10 type player, Britt's best season was when we had Traore Hardest bit is fitting them into a formation could play Fletcher on the left in a 4-3-3 with Britt up front or Fletcher just off Gnanduillet in a 4-2-3-1 or Fletcher lone man with 2 wingers who like to cut in similar to Fulham  (Cavaleiro - Mitrovic - Knockaert) and Tav as an attacking CM in a 3 of him, Saville and Howson  
    • I don’t think the issue is the strikers, you’d struggle to find 2 better than them at this level on a budget. For me, the goal scoring problem is more from the lack of pace and creativity out wide and in midfield. I think that’s where the priority needs to be once we’ve sorted the defence because at times the forwards looked like they were playing a different game by themselves.
