How were all the other weirdos?
Some real bizarre ones out and about. One bloke going in the home end in what looked like a red dressing gown with boots and red hair. A few normal folk about as well
Jesus, that is embarrassing.
Unfortunately no internet so unable to watch on my subscription app. Was Mahrez through on goal?
OK it was only 5 minutes on MOTD, but that looked like we should have won about 4-1?
It was so obviously a dive in the stands. Can’t quite believe the ref didn’t show him a yellow.
Only seen the highlights but seems like we should have won really. Would have taken a point before hand though so no complaints really. Thought Chilwell was quite unlucky to get sent off though as 2 quite soft yellows, especially the second. Seems like the long break has done the regulars well in revitalising them!
The second one wasn’t soft. It was reckless, although not intentional.
Puel has done really well to get us to the point where we can look to get an away result against a really strong side by outplaying them rather than just hanging on as long as possible.
So obviously not a dive when you watch it on MOTD and Sky. He tripped himself up by carelessly standing on the Chelsea player's shin. He was going at such a speed that any obstruction would make him fall over. He thought it was a penalty, the ref quite rightly didn't and also did not believe he dived. End of story.
I was stunned by just how good we were when watching recorded highlights. Totally improved from earlier this season when our only tactic and game plan was long balls over the top for Vardy to chase. He was absolutely superb yesterday, almost unplayable from a defenders point of view. Amazing how many times they had 2 players on him and he still came away with the ball. Also Mahrez's attitude yesterday was fantastic. No mardiness, no lack of interest or effort.
I know I keep banging on about this. Chilwell is a really good player but he gives away too many free kicks and goal scoring opportunities by trying to tackle with his left foot when players cut inside him and they know it. He needs to start tackling well with his 'wrong' foot.
Were you wearing your blue tinted glasses when you watched it?
No, my independent slomo ones.
Outstanding performance and a great away day. Matty James performance was a really nice surprise, he was outstanding.
Given our recent record, this seems to be a structural problem. I would hate to be known as a diving team and we're not far from getting that reputation widely I feel. It's very hard to wash away
Really looking forward to the Watford game hopefully we can really put them to the sword. Our fixtures are looking favourable until the end of season I think top 6 is definitely achievable and with the current top 6 all still to play each other who knows what will happen.
Our best two players have been regularly diving for years now. We've won penalties, points and games as a result and there is no indication that any manager has a problem with it.
