    Leicester City Football Club - nicknamed The Foxes, The Blues, City, and Blue Army - are a professional football club based in Leicester; and were founded in 1884 by a group of old boys of Wyggeston School as Leicester Fosse, before joining the Football Association in 1890. In 1919, when League football resumed after World War I, Leicester Fosse ceased trading due to financial difficulties of which little is known. The club was reformed as Leicester City Football Club, particularly appropriate as the borough of Leicester had recently been given city status. Leicester City are the current champions of the English First division - the first title win in club history, after enjoying only moderate success through the years - winning 3 League Cups, and reaching the final of the FA Cup 4 times. Leicester's most prominent rivalries are with fellow Nottingham Forest, Coventry City and Derby County; and they have been playing their home games at The King Power Stadium (originally named Filbert Way) since 2002.

    Should be a good game. Interesting to see the combo Vardy-Mahrez again.

    It's fitting for current champions to face off with the next ones. 1-5 United, Rooney hattrick, Rashford and Januzaj.

    I think we will thump them....4-0 something like that.
    I cant see anything other than them seriously struggling this year.

    Will Zlatan play this? Can imagine Mourinho not bothering fielding him for a charity shield, but he might need the fitness given he's not featuring in China.

    Who was key to them. Mahrez looks likely to go too. Regardless, I just think that they will struggle.

    They went from just surviving relegation to league winners. In reality, on review of their squad of players, they are somewhere in the middle of that and perhaps close to the bottom end. They did brilliant last year and fully deserved to win the league. This yeat they will have to content with expectation, opposition actually playing against them and making plans to nullify them, loss of players, loss of form, injury.

    Probably but Zieler is a pretty high profile signing for a number two.

    Will be interesting to see who is fit for this. Players from the euros will be at the china tour but wont play, right? So thats just the game in Sweden and Everton as warm up. Probably about a half for them while we save them properly for the start of the season. Should be a good game though. Leicezter even though they lost Kante are still a good side with quality players. They will probably strengthen a bit too.

    Zlatan's set to debut against Galatasaray is he not? So I'd assume he'd play some part in this game, too.

    I imagine that this is being considered as much a warm up game as it is a start to our season. Can you still make more than 3 subs in this match, or am I going completely mad in thinking you can/used to be able to do that?

    The FA wanted to change that 2-3 years ago but the clubs were against that.......so 6 subs are still allowed.

    I went 2-2 but meant to go 2-1 to us.

    I think we'll edge it, but these guys were constantly under-estimated last season and punished the opposition on every occasion, so would be daft to assume that their time of winning is over. But at the same time Jose is going to want to send a message. I can't see either team keeping the other quiet for 90 minutes.

    Of course most of this result really hinges on who they manage to keep hold of.

    Calling it now; Leicester will win this 1-0, we'll be boring as hell and the 'slow zombie sideways passing' thread will make a comeback.

    It is most likely that Zlatan will play 45 minutes in Gothenburg, and maybe 60-70 minutes in this game.

    Ibrahimovic​

    Kasper is likely our no1 to start the season though I personally wouldn't be too upset if he was eventually replaced, he doesn't dominate his area enough for me & Zieler has decent distribution as well as being more dominant aerially, think Huth's place is in question with the signing of Hernandez who looks a very classy defender, still need a right back but not sure what I think of the Corluka link, will be interesting next sunday morning to see if Vardy and Musa play upfront together vs PSG, still think our most likely system will be 433 this season

    Kasper

    Simpson Hernandez Morgan Fuchs

    Drinkwater Mendy King

    Mahrez Vardy Musa​

    It probably won't be a very pretty game from both sides as i have a feeling it will take some more weeks to get (back) to full sharpness. I think United will win this 2-1.

    Early guess would be

    De Gea

    Valencia
    Smalling
    Bailly
    Shaw

    Carrick
    Herrera

    Mkhitaryan
    Rooney
    Lingard

    Rashford

    Not expecting any of the players who've not yet returned to training to start. Could be wrong though. Not yet ascertained how much Mourinho values the fabled 'match rhythm'.

    I dont want to see Lingard anywhere near the starting 11. Would rather have literally anyone else in his place.

    I expect Zlatan and Martial will be included, even if theyre not necessarilly to start.

    Probably a draw.

    Team prediction:

    De Gea
    Valencia Smalling Bailly Shaw
    Carrick Herrera
    Mkhitaryan Rooney Depay
    Rashford
    Martial, Zlatan and others off the bench.

    No point calling this till shopping is done. But Leicester are looking sharp pre-season. Won't be as easy as people think but we should win this. Hopefully Jose will have all the players he wants in place long before then. Will do my predictions next week

    A lot of players won't be up to scratch for this and if we don't buy our midfield is woeful. Still, the game is a couple of weeks away so we'll see.
