More than happy for us to win, providing we use 'B' Teamers in this one, and the next........
I would never ever want Brentford regardless of the circumstances to lose. What the league cup run has shown is that it gives other players valuable playing minutes. I want us to win and progress.
If both play their strongest teams, Leicester as a team with a chance of winning the PL would almost always win. Neither is likely to play such teams. Their fringe team ought also to be better than ours, probably on paper better than our first team, but that’s not how cup games always turn out. As we saw last season against them and this season against a series of PL teams in the Carabao.Even with our strongest possible team we would be hard pushed to win this. So with certainly four first choice players missing and probably anything up to eight, then for me a lost cause. Hope we give a good account of ourselves and avoid a hiding then that will be ok with me. Something like 3-0 to Leicester.
2-1 Bees. Our 2nd string has been very good so far this season...
Three. Coming away from Swansea with three points. We've got to get out of this mentality of settling for matching teams. That's how playoffs happen. If we're going to be the best, let's not settle for anything less than beating all of the buggers.Cant see any of last Wednesdays team starting except Ghoddos, which will mean a completely new
back four and that will mean goals conceded - possibly as many as five ! Its all about coming away from
Swansea with at least a point next Wednesday.
Without wishing to sound like Tony Cottee I fear for us on Sunday.2-0 Foxes. Hope I'm wrong.
Nothing to fear, we have shown this season how competitive we have been even with our second string side against Premiership opposition. They are a quality side no doubt about it and it will be tough but fear not at all.Without wishing to sound like Tony Cottee I fear for us on Sunday.
Leicester look formidable currently.
Last season they picked 7 or 8 regulars & they are likely to go similar.
They have good depth to their squad and if we only go with a couple of regulars then it's an away win banker I'm afraid.
Hope I'm wrong of course
Okay , you've convinced meWhat's all this fear bo11ocks. We will be playing them twice at least next season in the same division. Our 'B' team beat Premier league Newcastle a few weeks ago. We have to shake our Division Four mentality. The Royal Oak is long gone. If we play our B team on Sunday Leicester may have a chance
