    Am I right in thinking we are the only club to have scored 5 goals in the first half of a game, and 5 goals in the second half of a game in the PL ?
    If so, then put the two together, then we can beat Leicester 10-0. You heard it here first.

    The 5 goals in each half thing was in the same season, which is what makes us unique.
    Doing it in the same game would make us very special.

    I weirdly, worryingly, confident about this game.

    That's what mid-morning drinking does for you. Personally, I think we'll win 2-0 - AArmstrong and JWP

    I'm very optimistic & think we will spank them 11-0 with Vesty & Berty scoring 2 own goals each & Armstrong scoring the rest (one of which will have been a following a mazy run from our 18yrd box a'la Pele in Escape to Victory)

    In reality i'm expecting a draw at best.

    I hope JWP ups the standard of his corners. That or we have players running into the area where he puts them.
    There doesn’t seem to be too much variety either, especially from the left which either gets cleared at the near post or goes into the 6 yard box for the keeper to catch or punch away.
    I think the most dangerous corners this season came when JWP was suspended and Redmond took them.
    Be good if we could get a few free kicks in the right area for him to have a pop at goal.

    I'd be happy for simply anyone in red and white to have a pop at goal!

    They’re having plenty of shots, just not enough on target.

    I would say losing 4-0 is a bad result, regardless of opposition.

    Thought we were playing tonight. Turns out it'll be my Wednesday evening that gets ruined, not Tuesday.

    Liverpool have won 9 times this season by 3 or more goals, and 5 times by 4 or more. They are world class, it's what they do, even to good sides on unbeaten runs like Arsenal.

    It is obviously not a good result but so many teams will go to Anfield this season and get smashed. We went there and risked it to try and get points, it didn't work but i wouldn't count a losing against liverpool as a bad result and part of poor form.

    I know they’re good, I just don’t think we should ever say a 4-0 loss is acceptable. After 2-0 down away at anfield it should have been about damage limitation.

    Losing by 1 or 2 goals is expected, a draw is a good result. Losing by 4 goals is a bad result.

    Lets move on. This is the Leicester thread.

    I'm expecting a good game tomorrow. Would love to see us knock a couple past Bertie and Vesty but I doubt either will feature tomorrow. Still hopeful for a close win. Tella to start. Long to finish. Goal from each.

    Stu is out. Probably Redders at 10 and Broja up top

    Difficult to call the strikers for this but would like to see a bit more consistency with our choices up front to try and help partnerships and confidence. If we continue to struggle to score goals we will struggle this season even if our overall play is decent. Think I’d try and get back to Broja and Redmond as that seemed to be working the best before Brojas injury imo. Would personally then go for Tella and Ely as the 10s given Armstrong is out as usual.
