    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, and joined 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. Although they have never won the title in the top division of English football, Leicester City have enjoyed moderate success through the years - winning 3 League Cups, and reaching the final of the FA Cup 4 times. Watford'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.

    Look at the bright side, even a Vardy in the form of his life can't play better than what he did in the same fixture last season.

    We might scrape a draw but I think they will win. They play with so much more urgency and intensity than us.

    No more playing two defensive midfielders. No more hoofing the ball to Fellaini. Less Rooney, more Spaniards.

    Martial and Lingard must start, obviously.

    We looked tired in the last third of today's match. That's a concern against a high energy team like Leicester.

    Leicester won't sit back and defend, so I think we'll win by 3 or 4.

    Or get hammered.

    This is going to be the possession based United defence vs chat shit get banged show. Aimless passing, side to side, to the final third, then back to DDG, then to the full backs, then to the midfield, then to the centre backs whilst Vardy is running around like a rabid dog trying to kung-fu kick his way to getting a lucky break or a goal.

    It can't be worse than tonight, surely not? An that second half performance was truly embarrassing.

    De Gea
    Darmian--Smalling--Rojo--Blind
    Schneiderlin--Schweinsteiger
    Mata--Rooney--Lingard
    Martial​

    Leicester are shit defensively and like to attack so it could well play into our hands here. Might even be a high scoring game for once. Think we'll win though.
    De Gea
    Darmian Smalling Blind Rojo
    Schneiderlin Schweinsteiger
    Mata Rooney Young
    Martial
    Or something like that. Maybe Memphis and Martial up top with Young right back. Lingard needs a bit of a break, and misses way too many chances anyway.

    Oh how I miss Carrick and Herrera.

    A Schneiderlin-Schweinsteiger midfield is what we'll have to resort to, but they both sorta get in each others' way. There's no dynamism.

    Leicester are defensively shit while United is defensively solid. I think United's defence outweighs Leicester's attack so United wins. Sooner or later Leicester surely has to drop points right? :lol:

    Another safetey-first thinking by the manager, another clueless performance I reckon. A draw will be a good result.
    Just don't want to see Fellaini and Lingard anu where near the starting lineup.

    3-1 win will do me good, with Vardy scoring.

    Alas, I think it'll be a draw or a tight defeat.

    0-0 we're defensively tight enough and people are overhyping Vardy way too much, he hasn't really faced a solid defence yet.

    If Vardy doesn't score from open-play then I expect him to throw himself down for a penalty to keep his run going - there's too much hype around it for him not to do everything he can to extend it, and frankly that tactic worked in the fixture last season - English referees as we know are very, very weak on such matters, especially from English players loved by the media.

    We really, really need to discover the ability to score a decent number of goals for this one - hopefully without an accompanying defensive collapse.

    As usual away from home, we will blink and it will be halftime with no incidents.

    We'll stop them but we won't start against them. Another 0-0

    Most intriguing game of the season... Complete opposites

    - A shit defence versus a shit attack, a good attack versus a good defence , that's only actually good because the attack is so shit.
    - Leicester play very open and direct and concede a lot of possession, United play very tight, short and hog possession.
    - Leicester have the most in form striker in the country, United have the most out of form striker in the country.
    - You've got one team that cost about 500 million to put together and yet play the worse football in the division and then you've got the other team which cost about 30 million to put together who play arguably the most exciting football in the division.

    0-0 for sure.

    Would love it if Leicester come out to attack so we can see an open game. But if they have been watching us closely lately, they best way to nullify, and perhaps beat, us is by parking the bus and counter-attacking us.

    We'll either nick this 1-0 or we'll be 3 goals down within 20 minutes.
