Odd line up from us. Mahrez and De Laet must be carrying knocks. Happy with Fuchs and Kante getting a go in the first 11 though. Schlupp still keeps his place in the starting lineup albeit as a winger rather than a fullback.

Simpson is usually an accident waiting to happen.

Vardy wins and scores a penalty. Dunno how much contact there was but Bassong didn't do much complaining. We've been all over them for 10 minutes after an even opening.

Schlupp with a fast counter attacking goal. 0-2.

Mbokani gets his first goal for Norwich.
Not really sure why he doesn't start for them.

Ulloa comes on, scores from his first touch at a corner and Clattenburg disallowed it. Huth push on Ruddy. Bloody hell Rob, he wasn't getting it anyway.

Deserved nothing, got nothing. Don't think either side looked up to much early on. Then we went a little gung ho, gave away the ball cheaply and were done on the break. After that, Lester were by far the better side and we were fortunate to go into the break one goal down. Most of our problems seemed to stem from Howson not being a winger. No-one on the right which meant Lester only had to defend one half of the pitch and meant Wes had no room to do anything. Whittaker was the only player who ever had acres of space and he just played it to Lester players every time (which is probably why they didn't bother with him). Second half, you want to bring on Redmond and stretch their defence, make them work for it. Instead we stick, push everyone forward and get fucked on the break again. 2-0, game over. Was impressed with Leicester. Well organised team and dangerous on the counter.

Not all bad though, we did get to witness a miracle. Didn't think Vardy was ever going to walk again and then 30 seconds later, he was sprinting, having shots and doing forward rolls. Incredible recovery. Think Bournemouth could do with your medical staff. It wasn't Jesus by any chance was it?

What you talking about? Vardy has a broken leg, but he's so fucking nails that he just played on. Didn't you read about his wrist? Power wanked his joint to sawdust and can still play on with it in a fetching blue wrap. He's banging Mayweather out next game in the pre match warm up.

Didn't really have any preseason as wasn't training/playing for his Ukrainian club. Think he will be starting games in the not too distant future.

Leicester did a job on us today. They were very organised in defence and we couldn't break them down. Our usually fast passing game wasn't there as we were closed down quickly in the midfield. The counter attacks were fast and I think that's the best way to attack against us.
