I have just re-read the 'We've Just Bought Jamie Vardy' thread. Some great stuff in there, it's always the same tho when we buy a new player.

If we only knew now what we did then, or whatever.

I would love it if Jamie was able to overhaul Michael Owen's PL goal tally. If he could achieve before Xmas 2022 I'd be ecstatic.

The Athletic appreciating our Jamie in the 5-3
For probably the first time in the game, Vardy had time to think. How would he react?

The answer is, Vardy did think. He remembered the footage he had seen of De Gea in one-on-one scenarios — that rather unusual stance where he seeks to make the lower half of his body big rather than diving — and calmly slid the ball to the United keeper’s left.

It was controlled and composed and, given the quality of some of the other goals that he has scored since, makes you wonder what his Leicester team-mates thought about Michael Owen’s comments a couple of years later, when the former Liverpool striker said Vardy wasn’t a “natural finisher”, “doesn’t once lift his head”, and is the sort of goalscorer who relies a lot on luck.

Just watched the highlights again on YouTube. Hopefully it will remain there in perpetuity for when memories of that glorious afternoon begin to fade.
It’s available on sky to watch the whole game.
