its the bigger games matey and away to leciester is hard to get the 3 points.. city had to work so hard today and credit for that. but if we take just a couple of the chances we see the game out ? the torres one that he put wide when he was put in or the gundogan header all a strikers dream

but the win is all that matters now and everything else is pointless
The flaw in your argument is the assumption that all of our chances would have fallen to that striker

We were the better team,we fought superbly as a unit,and we still have our best players on the bench......make no mistake,that was a hard fixture,much more than a banana skin and one i never look forward to.

A great 3 points and a display that made me proud.

He got that because vardy went down and started holding his head, the fucking cheat!
It was a pure game management by the ref to make things really difficult for us considering how LC played - they are doing counter-attacks, so let it be as comfortable for them as possible. Not to mention Rodri's yellow, that was on its own a borderline bullshit, he clearly won the ball and what was he supposed to do with his foot after kicking the ball, continue jumping on one foot for the nest five minutes. But back to Laporte/Vardy, it happened, 100 miles from the goal, Vardy was not in control of the ball or LC was in no in any phase of the game to even 't' of threaten our goal, and Laporte just nudged him when jumping, no arm slapping , no elbow, nothing, and there was no previous incident Laporte was involved in. I was really shocked when that f..ker pulled out the yellow.

Leicester played quite well and defended heroically, especially in the first half where they threw themselves to block everything, but you always sense that pressing Schmeichel will either directly or indirectly lead to a goal.

We had games like this even when we had top, top strikers. It's just how it can be for a possession dominant side.

The important thing is that we played largely well, kept the ball well, created chances consistently and prevented the other team from getting much joy in attacks.

If we played like that all season, it'd be far more likely that we win games consistently than consistently miss chances and pray for good luck.
