Will we lump the ball or just hump the ball?
Both are Pulis' way of playing.
I bet Leicester have already planned for this.

It was this fixture last season that turned things around for us, hoping for more of the same this season.

Absolutely brilliant day out last season.
Was looking forward to going on the train and having a few sherberts in Leicester on the afternoon etc.

Such a pity this is being played on a Monday night.
Oh well.

Playing on Monday after an international break is probably good for us - we do have a large number of players who actually play for international teams, including Rondon and Hegazi who travel across time zones, v. long jouneys etc.

Good point Adder. Hopefully Rondon will be fired up after his goal against Watford. I'd be interested to know how he played for Venezuela (if he did).

Played 90 minutes by the looks of it. Held Uruguay to a 0-0 draw.

To be fair they're bottom of the group and have only won 1 game, with a -17 goal difference. Think they'd be pretty happy with the draw and imagine they weren't going all guns blazing.

Leicester is always the strange anomaly in the system whereby we both play similar styles of football so you see the away team being successful in this fixture regularly. When we are at their place, we give them all the ball and hit them on the counter which saw us successful last season, just as they have done the same to us over the past couple of seasons as they rely on the pace of Vardy on the break.

Change of style during this game would be beyond silly considering the way they play and the best way to beat them is to soak it up and hit them on the counter.

Leicester away last season was the game we kicked on and went on a fantastic run of form. I have a feeling the same could happen again. Leicester are in poor form, I fancy us to get a win here.
Pulis doesn't do relegation.

Do you really think so? We have Man City, Spurs and Chelsea as part of our next six fixtures.

more a must not loose with the teams we have coming up. remember we have only played arsenal so far of any note and we are only 4 points off the drop zone. i am not dismissing the fact we might do well against top 6 teams this season but they way we are playing this season to date we wont get jack

hes had his chance with me but we all now hes here for the short term.No one can convince me his football mentality will ever change.he constantly bigs the opposition so i wont listen to any interview of his anymore
I understand his attraction for a season and getting teams out of trouble in desperation but thats it, his shelf life should come to an end the following season.

i would be over the moon with a point against leicester

Looks like Ben Foster's knee has 'gone' again and we may be looking at Myhill in goal Monday  :o

I have heard that from somebody in the know as well. It's his other knee this time apparently.
