    Jamie Vardy is just 1 goal short of becoming the first player to score 49 PL goals for the club.

    Staggered that we haven't sold all our allocation for this. Is our away support on the wane? I thought away tickets were like gold dust. If I'd known a while ago I would have considered going.

    When I looked on the OS for this earlier today there were only five tickets left, which I assumed were returns.

    We didn't take the full allocation though. I'm sure a lot of people don't bother trying to get tickets for away games because they assume they'll all be sold to season ticket holders and members who have been lucky in the ballot. When they publish the ticket info on the OS they never mention a date for general sale.

    It was sold out ages ago. New tickets must be returns.

    Jamie Vardy has currently scored 48 PL goals for the club.

    But I don't know if he is the first player to do so. Personally, I find 48 to be a much nicer number than 49 or 50, so well done Jamie. Have another potato wedge.

    I wanted to buy yesterday but they were sold out so I didn't look again.

    I predict 2 0 for the blues. Playing 4 2 3 1 with Mahrez in the middle of an attacking mid-field gives us so many more attacking options. If Chilwell is injured, then it has to be Allbrighton, even though he would be playing on the "wrong side". I also predict us winning against Man City after the break. They cannot win all their matches and we have the talent to beat them. Dare I also predict a top 4 finish. Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool are inconsistent, so we have an opportunity, just as we did 2 years ago.

    If we finish 10th I'd be really happy. If we finish in the top four I will eat my hat... And shirt.... And trousers.

    We have the talent to do it. Last week-end, we played 8 out of the 11 first team which won the league. Add to that the additional talent that we have brought in, excluding the numpties, we can do it. C'mon you blue boys

    I have no doubt that we have some great talent. The decisive factors for me will be:
    a) The manager
    b) Iborra's progress
    c) N'didi's form
    d) Silva's quality and ability to adapt to the Premier League

    Has everybody gone to sleep? I seem to recall that when I suggested a 4 2 3 1 formation before the Everton match, with Mahrez in the centre of an attacking mid-field, it created an animated discussion.

    I live near Bordeaux and in 2009, Bordeaux won the French league 1 by winning their last 9 games (I could be corrected on that stat). They then played in the Champions League and won all of their group phase matches, including the double over Bayern Munich. They qualified for the quarter final, where they played Lyon. They lost by a very disputed penalty, otherwise, they would have played Bayern Munich in the semi-final. The manager of Bordeaux at the time was Laurent Blanc. And who was the manager of Lyon? Claude Puel.

    We can do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I agree, Stoke are shit but we will lose because it would be too good to win 3 on the trot.

    I think the below will work nicely


    Morgan Maguire Fuchs
    Simpson Iborra Ndidi Albrighton
    Gray Mahrez

    It's 442 but I would imagine average positions on the pitch will be more like the above.
    After sixty minutes if the front three have ran theselves ragged it would allow us to put Okazaki, Nacho or Slimani on and play more straightforward, get it wide and put conventional crosses in.

    Simpson Maguire Morgan
    Albrighton Iborra Okazaki Fuchs
    Iheanacho Slimani

    Calm down.

    Over the top expectations do us no favours at all.

    We need to realise we are back to where we were before we won the league and build something sustainable and long term.

    The new manager needs time before people start banging on about being better than most of the division.
