    That will be Mr Yakubu and Mr Nacho!

    Pre Match Leicester v Southampton

    Yes, same result as at St. Mary's will do, though I would be happier if Maguire, or somebody else, can not leave it until minute 92 before scoring the winning goal!

    Post Match Newport County 2 Leicester 1

    In our champion winning year, I think there was a stat which showed we used the fewest players out of our squad of any team. It was so similar each week, apart from a rare injury or suspension, that the players became almost telepathic in knowing where each other was and where they were going to...

    Doesn't that tell you something about the motivation they get/or don't get, from the manager? Strategy, substitutions, formation, roles etc. It is the same club and the same fans that want to cheer them on to success.

    We could have done, but if we had, and they had played like they did against Chelsea and Man City we may not have lost. We were already at a disadvantage with away ground and obviously poor pitch. Why lessen your chances more by leaving your best players out. Yes, Albrighton was stupid for the...

    Puel out

    Whilst we did very well against Man City and Chelsea, I think Puel made huge misjudgments in playing weakened sides in both Cup games, which we could easily have won. Everybody gets 6 days rest now. No-one needed to be rested today. When we were winning in our Champions year, the rest of the...

    Puel out

    For me, Puel's 'failure' is not that we do not perform against the 'big' clubs, it is that he appears to have no plan or strategy for how to beat bottom half teams that just want to 'park the bus' against us.

    Our best team about matches the team Spurs put out!

    OK Puel. Watch the Spurs match. You put your best team out and you take the opposition apart. If you are serious about winning something that is.

    I keep saying he is a lazy git that will not chase down the goalkeeper or a ball heading to the goal line, but some people do not think that is a valuable skill that could lead to goal scoring opportunities!

    OK. Vardy starts. If he has a hat-trick inside 10 minutes, then sub him. Do not let us make the mistake that 70 places below us means they will not all make superhuman efforts for the biggest match for them in years, if not decades.

    I think this came up a few years ago when the owners introduced the charging for some of the mascot places, but I cannot remember how many. That was also in the days when you get a free birthday announcement at half-time as well, but I do not suppose that is the case anymore. I would hope/like...

    Make a statement to the rest of the league that we are not just here to make up the numbers mid-table and not caring about Europe. Strongest team out. Blow them out of the water, 0-5 by half-time. Then take off the three most in need of a 6 day rest and put on 3 young super-subs.

    Can we swap James and King in the list of 25 players now, as James's place has been wasted for the first half of the season so far, if Puel is not going to buy any more players in January?
