Really looking forward to saturdays game against Leicester.They have been good so far this season and they beat us last season at the Hawthorns,so this time it is ALBION to win,but than we have to stop Vardy.He score in every game he play,but this time he will meet one of the best defense in prem with 6 clean sheets.I cant see TP change a winning team.COYB.Norway baggie
While we have a decent defence against balls in the air (mostly) we are extremely susceptible to pace. Zaha tormented us in the Palace game and I think that Vardy and co will be hitting us on the break. They’ve scored 20 goals so far but let in 17 whereas we’ve scored 8 and let in 11. They’ve only lost once, to Arsenal, who put 5 past them by hitting them on the break. I fear that our two ‘full backs’ are going to have a torrid time and Johnny Evans may be doing a lot of covering for McA who’s not the quickest. For once TP’s tactics of defending in depth may be the best option with someone pacey up front to hit Leicester on the break.
Don’t under-estimate our lot and the fact we’re starting to play with a settled side. Their wingers are neither that quick nor great dribblers, though Mahrez can be tricky through the middle. Yacob will cover Vardy. 2-1 to the Baggies.
You were saying WBA68. Two goals from the wings (although the second was offside) and Vardy leaving our defence for dead. It looks as if Brunt has hamstring problems so could be out for a game or more. Wonder who’ll replace him?
