    Do we have any chance at all on Saturday ?

    The whole world and his dog will be keenly focused on events surrounding the game at the Kingpower Stadium on Saturday afternoon. With the media attention clearly behind Leicester City , how will Sean Dyche s team react to what is going on all around them ? I would like to think they will not get carried away on the sea of emotion, and will go there with the intention of trying to win the game and not be the sacrificial lambs to the slaughter.
    What do you all think ? A chance of getting a result or is it a foregone conclusion ?

    The worst possible time to play them.

    Their players will be pumped up and the fans right behind them.

    Somehow we have to match their fire - but also play with calmness and shut out the noise.

    A tough ask of any team - even harder for one that has been hammered it's last three games.

    A real test of character...but we HAVE done it before.

    1-2.

    So,what you are saying BT,we have to roll over and let them win because of what has happened.. ?

    Im sure the Burnley / Leicester fans who are attending won't want to see that happen..

    What happened was awful,but life goes on and people can't be expected to watch their respected teams not put the effort in.. They certainly put an effort in at Cardiff,so I wouldn't expect anything but a good hard game..We need to get into them early doors and give Them a bit of a kicking and elbow or two to let them know we mean business.

    Well said Alf, we have had 11 chances to do that, perhaps and hopefully it will be 12th time lucky.

    We turned up to watch that game Alto, the team didn't and I think that's when our current malaise really kicked in.

    The last time we won at Leicester was 10 November 2007. Interesting point!!
    Since then we have lost 4 and drawn 3 with the last two visits resulting in defeats. Who knows?

    I don't think it will make much difference to the outcome of the game, our lads are professionals, they should be capable of shutting all the ephemera out and getting the job done. If we're good enough we'ii get a result, there was a ****storm going on around them at West Ham last season, we won 3-0. Let Leicester cope with the emotion, the hype, no reason why it should affect our performance, we just turn up and do our job. Probably still lose though.

    You can always tell folk who have enjoyed the benefit of a grammar school education, they use words like ephemera.

    Im a little sceptical,
    If we get a goal early or dont concede early we have a chance, but if they get one early I fear the worst.
    Could be Chris Woods baptism scoring the winner against his old club.

    As the old timer said you’ve got two chances-Fat and Slim and Slim just rode out of town.
