    All I've got to say about this game, is good luck to Hayden Mullins. A very capable coach, calm, confident, motivated. He deserves his break.

    I have to admit I put Vardy in my fantasy team in time for the Everton and Watford games.

    Good luck to Mullins & co.

    We're 8/1 to win this with most bookies. Can't even be tempted at that price.

    Hope we put up some sort of fight.

    3-0 Leicester.

    I popped him in my team a few weeks back. Of course I've made in captain this week in the hope my bad FF ability will trip him up.

    Are you the type of person who’ll watch every second even if we’re getting smashed? I am but I wish I wasn’t. Not looking forward to it at all, yet can’t not watch.
     
  15. I must admit, I've not been looking at the top of the table and so have been hoping man city could keep winning to stop liverpool from winning the title. Little did I realise Leicester are the best chance of stopping them.

    So I am a Leicester fan for the rest of the season. Except tomorrow night.

    Fully expect us to get spanked however. Have 3 Leicester players in my fpl team.

    1-5 Watford.

    This isn't an easy situation for Mullins. My ITK sources recall his first meeting with the players and it wasn't comfortable. We have a very divided camp.

    I can confirm it went as below:

    MULLINS: I knew Quique Sanchez Flores. He never wanted a war with the Pozzos, he wanted to win matches for his people. For you. I'm prepared to give you those wins.
    DEENEY: If…?
    MULLINS: If you swear you join me when the real matches begins.
    HOLEBAS: Where is Quique?
    MULLINS: He was fired.
    HOLEBAS: How?
    MULLINS (after a long pause): Via text message.

    The players in the dressing room start to riot.

    HOLEBAS: I say we send the caretaker coach back to the Pozzos with no eyes.

    Holebas brandishes his studs. Deulofeu steps forward.

    DEULOFEU: None of you saw Quique get fired! I did. The Technical Director who broke our squad, Giraldi, wanted to fire him live on Sky Sports to send him a message. Hayden Mullins defied that ****’s orders. His text was mercy. What it did took courage, and that’s what we need today: the courage to make peace with men we’ve been arguing with since April.
    DEENEY: I exacerbated an injury and lost 3 months of my season fighting for the damn Pozzos.
    MULLINS: I’m not asking you to forget about your season. I’ll never forget mine. I lost 50 youth players to other teams the night that Quique picked Foulquier ahead of Quina. But I’m asking you to think about your careers now. You'll never sign for another Premier League club if we don’t band together. Leicester City are coming and Brendan Rodgers comes with them. No defender can stop them. Foster can’t stop them. Doucoure can’t stop them. And all the injured players can’t stop them. Only together, all of us, and even then it might not be enough, but at least then we’ll give the ******* a fight.

    There are small nods of approval throughout the dressing room.

    DEENEY: You vouch for this man, Deulofeu?
    DEULOFEU: He’s prettier than both my daughters, but he knows how to coach. He’s young, but he knows how to lead. He didn’t have to come to the First Team. He came because he needs us. And we need him.
    HOLEBAS: My ancestors would spit on me if I broke bread with a caretaker manager.
    DEENEY: So would mine, but **** 'em, they’re dead.

    Deeney walks in front of Mullins.

    DEENEY: I’ll never trust a man in temporary charge.

    Deeney walks over to Deulofeu.

    DEENEY: But I trust you, Deulofeu. If you say this is the way, we’re with you.
    DEULOFEU: This is the way.
    FOSTER: I’m with Deulofeu. We play like we have been we’re relegated. At least with King Hayden there’s a chance.
    DOUCOURE: Deulofeu.
    HOLEBAS: Keep that chance to stay up you want to give us. Keep your training cones, King Hayden. Soon as you publicly endorse him he's gonna drop you to the reserves and put you on the transfer list. That’s our enemy. That has always been our enemy.

    Players start leaving the dressing room and head towards the car park.

    DEENEY (to Deulofeu): I ******* hate Holebas.

    I hope our players have packed their gimp masks and the lube.

    We should be easing past the likes of Leicester if we are serious about survival

    @ITK platypus that was really good. You should have one in print.

    As for the game, erm. . Its going to be a horrible night. But, lets at least try to keep the score respectable. Mullins has been given one hell of an openning game, but he seems to be able to get the U23s fired up. Id say start Deeney and Gray up top. Put Delafoo on later if need be.

    Quina to start also. We get anything here its a bonus. Leicester were below par against Everton yet still won. Not an easy night for sure.

    3=1
     
  27. Lesta will put 4 or 5 past our rancid defence I imagine

    I think we need to move away from Gray. He is not even close to being good enough for this standard and should not be starting games for us. It will be interesting to see how Mullins sets us up and if sticks to QSF's 5 at the back.

    We need to give teams a go now. Being so defensive is not going to keep us up. But, we can't attempt that until we get some of our defense back.

    Is deulofeu due his good game yet? Or is it scheduled v Palace?
     
  32. If you are signing up for Amazon Prime for this, and it turns into a car crash, you can watch Mr Robot instead. It's quite good.

    I’m going to the only one who predicts it and is genuinely serious.

    Bit like Arsenal away under Mazzarri - I have a feeling we will take a shock win. I just have a feeling that Mullins will have come in and asked them what the main issue was under QSF and will have been told the restrictive tactics. I think he will give our better players license to do more.

    2-1 shock. A decent performance and Mullins gets another chance to impress on Saturday. (Beats Palace and is given the gig until the end of the season at least).

    2 days to work with the squad...if anyone is expecting a free flowing expansive Watford...then watch something else on Prime - it ain't happening.

    Expect a pragmatic display...keep it tight, don't venture too far forward and hopefully get a point.
