Defying the odds at Leicester? Match thread


Recommended Posts

We're going to get a point aren't we? Have to stop effing around with it at the back though. Whatever happened to Bambo? Is he out of favour or injured and Iorfa must be nearing a return as well. Oh hold on, he hasn't been at that African tournament has he?

Eligible for Nigeria but no. Also played right upto u21 level with England which I didn't know, Iorfa that is.

Be interesting they played a young lad at the back at the weekend instead of Connor Coady, wonder if he gets another chance. 

We have to accept that defeat is highly probable on this one. Not being defeatist simply realistic as they are miles above most squads in this league.

After that I think we have a chance in every remaining game, Leeds at home will be a derby so anything goes. 

Clearly none of those are an easy game - if you are 23rd out of 24 then it's simply fact.

Officials for the game according to the EFL website.

Referee: TOM NIELD
Assistants: James Wilson and Andrew Dallison
Fourth Official : James Linington

Mr Nield was due to ref us earlier this season but it didn't happen.... Think that was the game we got Rebecca Welsh the other week if my memory serves!

Mr Nield's record this season to date..

18 games reffed. 72 Yellow cards. 1 Red card.

Does the Red Button work on SkyGo? I dont think it does but just want to check 

Not on sky go, as others have said, but in theory you should be able to get it on the sky sports app if you sign in with the same account. However, I've found it pretty hit and miss in the past.

If you can keep your head when all about you
  Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
  But make allowance for their doubting too:
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
  Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated don't give way to hating,
  And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream — and not make dreams your master;
  If you can think — and not make thoughts your aim,
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
  And treat those two impostors just the same:.
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
  Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
  And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
  And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings,
  And never breathe a word about your loss:
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
  To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
  Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
  Or walk with Kings — nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
  If all men count with you, but none too much:
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
  With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
  And which is more: you'll be a Man, my son!

Gerroff, derby. Only one Sheffield derby, no relationship to those scumbags at all.

Gassama needs to give some cover to MJ or we could be dead and buried by 20mins in.

DR is trying to give it a go.

I take it from that Momo and Akin are not being risked, which makes sense. I’d rather have them for games where we have a better chance of getting some points.
