Nice to see some of the kids getting a run out today, but by god, thank god Ake is nowhere near our starting XI for the season

Glad I didn't waste a day out on that. Pep wasn't bothered from the line-up and neither was the team.

We could have won it but you cant make a mistake like that.

For Ake this season is huge given last one he was injured a lot and played lot less than he imagined. but to kick off this season with a mistake like this costing us at least the pen shootout Pep might remember this later on. Imo if we kept Garcia Ake could have been still 5th choice.

fair play to Leicester, good win for them.

Mahrez going on clear and fluffed his chance instead of get it in target, or get a pen or get a red for them is also criminal mistake imo.

PL start for us will be really difficult, we are weeks behind from our best, players very late to be back, and the fixture list PL drawn for us is pretty fuckin hard compared to our rivals first 8 games or so.

Their subs made better effect on the game, Kelechi, Daka made them more dangerous.

Ake. The f*cking basics of a professional footballer.

Who cares?

A nothing game.

Fern was completely off the boil. Ake apart from the mistake did ok but ultimately that passage of play cost us the shield. Cancelo not great either.

We need more firepower. With the players we have we should not be missing so many chances.

On a positive, few young lads got a run out and Jack got few mins.

Overall we did not win because we are not clinical.

First really competitive game, 1st team not even together yet. Top 4 teams all in same boat... No. Worries. Whatsoever. Steffen looked great stopping shots and the kids need to go out on loan. Worthwhile exercise in the end.
