    2-0 v Leicester

    I don't mind telling you I'm very happy to get three points today.
    I've looked on other blog sites and the Foxes fans are blaming the ref and not their own team for losing.
    They were poor in the first half, we were slightly worse.
    For all their pretty passing and clever flicks and what not, they never really posed any type of threat.
    The ref was right in awarding a penalty. Stone waller.
    Mills red card. Stone waller.
    Beau could have got a second yellow, bit fortunate really.
    Their appeal for a pen....nah!
    Woods goal, great flick by King, great finish.

    • re Leicester claim for a penalty the guy is in the wrong sport he would win a gold medal in the olympics in the diving pool

    • What is it about the first half of games, for the last few games we have not started until half time.
      Beausejour is starting to show what he can do, great move and finish by Wood.
      Both big decisions were spot on.
      I am worried by Ridgewell his body language seems to show he does not care and his effort seems half hearted, give Murphy a good run.
      Carr looked back to his best (2nd half anyway)
      We are not in true league position with these games in hand, if we win them both it puts us in top 6!!
      Looking forward to Thursday

      • Three well earned points, not saying deserved because our 1st half performance was somewhere befitting a Sunday park kick about, thought Carr was poor, but may just be slow getting up to speed, Ridgewell is not as strong as he was last season, though he still shows glimpses.
        Beau certainly woke everyone up second half with that thunderous shot.
        Wood’s goal was well-taken and showed king how to finish one on one, nice flick from him though.
        No one can complain about any of the decisions made by the ref, he had an excellent game.
        He tried to keep the game flowing and if the advantage did not benefit he was not afraid to blow and bring the play back.
        Overall it was a job done and will give us confidence.
        My one criticism is with Myhill; now I am not a fan of his, so do not take this as having a go for the sake.
        Can someone explain why he did not applaud Harry Moseley along with everyone else, including most of the Leicester supporters?

        Good Luck to the lads on Thursday.
