What's happened to Diallo, really off the pace after looking really good since he came in. Is it because we're asking him to play deeper? He did look good when he was turning and going forward in fairness.

Think he’s average and way to diminutive

little ball down the line from then and we immediately look very open. Diallo and JWP have to fill that space in front of the back four better than they have in recent weeks.

I notice we aren’t pressing as much when Leicester playing around their half.
Perhaps we are trying to ensure we don’t tire out so soon.

By contrast Leicester are chasing everything. Hope that works in our favour.

When are the cards coming out for all these Leicester fouls then? That's no worse than Diallos, if anything it's worse as he makes proper contact.

Agreed very frustrating

We seem devoid of ideas already... Worrying 

maybe, but to me we have chosen to play safe early doors with us clearing our lines and playing it in the corners rather than overplaying it and getting caught.

So 2 foxes players have now missed challenges and stood on a player’s foot and no yellow. Refs don’t do themselves any favours, fucking biased cheats. They’ve probably been told to help Leicester so the TV companies can go on about 2 of the teams vying for top 4 are in the cup final.

Do we want to win,nor just not get stuffed?

Look like they don’t believe they can win and hope to get away with a 2-0 or 3-0 and say, “oh well at least we didn’t get stuffed”.

I know it doesn’t make for good viewing, and will likely teether on giving me a heart attack.

But I would take a 11% possession, only 2 shots all game but a 1-0 win right now!!!!

Our clearing headers from centrebacks almost never go to our own players, they just focus on getting them as far as possible when more often than not they can just nod it down for a nearby teammate.

It’s amazing what confidence does to you.

If this game was played in October/November 2020 I doubt we would have looked as timid as we are. 
However, it’s 0-0 and for as long as it remains that way then we are still in it
