Massive game.

Where are we exactly with our ‘progression strategy’?…..time to start to seriously evaluate our actual position.

Leicester are just who they a few years ago managed to “fairy tale” their way to, we in comparison are Wolves!

Time to square it up to a more natural situation better than we have been managing of late. :)

The thrill is in the actual kill….wrestling but not delivering doesn’t quite do it like we really, really must start to.

Need to be winning this. 2 – 0 it will be. :)

I think they will be too good for us - 0-2.
There is a reason they're 14 points in front of us.

Man City are 16 points ahead of us - there's a reason for that too and yet we still beat them home and away this season. Don't get your 'logic' to be honest. As has already been pointed out above, the three games we've played the Foxes in the EPL under Nuno we've been the better side on each occasion.

I think the way leicester play will suit us. We're at home, well rested and Boly is back. Can only see us getting a win.

I think we are equal on losses with Leicester this season but they are way ahead on wins whereas we specialise in draws!

Really hope we come back firing after the paintballing in Marbella

3 1 wolves
we’ve outplayed them 3 times in a row now . No reason why we won’t again

Yes, and typical of the completely baffling craziness that defines football, the match where we totally outplayed them was the one we lost. Maybe this time we'll play badly and scrape a narrow win? I can see it being a low scoring draw, though, 0-0 or 1-1.

bit different when our players have all been with their international sides

2 weeks with nuno - I think we could put in one of our best performances of the season
I think you might be right.

We've tended to have pretty good performances after we've been on breaks to Marbella, in the days after the last break we thrashed Besiktas then somehow lost to Spurs. With extra time to work on methods specifically for this game - something we've hardly been afforded all season - we will hopefully be near the top of our game again

2-0 Leicester. We play better when we've got momentum and very rarely after a break.

Do we really play better after a break?

Any sort of win will do, we need to keep the pressure of the top 6 especially with Spurs, Everton & Sheff Utd all in good form.

We’ve both changed our approach of playing this season to be more attacking.

Squads have stayed exactly the same more or less.

They’re no better than us at all and we should’ve won at theirs earlier on in the season if it wasn’t for VAR and that was in the back of travelling 6000 miles to Armenia, playing a EL game and getting back Friday morning.

They got their advantage early on in the season through VAR. It hasn’t evened itself out, they’ve just maintained that advantage while we’ve had 12 EL games to contend with including the travelling.

Let’s face it, without EL you’d expect us to have at least 6-8 points more than we currently do and add the VAR points that we’ve been robbed off. Including the 2 extra ones at Leicester.

a close 2-1 win for Wolves.

Good feeling about this one, going to be our match of the season. 4-1 to us, Valentine's Day Massacre.

3-1 to the good guys.

I also have a good feeling about this one - Can't wait to take my seat !

We are fairly equal with Leicester at the moment, but the difference for us will be home advantage, so a win for Wolves I think is on the cards.
We certainly need the win as it really could determine the rest of the season in terms of confidence.
So, so tight around us now with the result of one game meaning moving up or down by 3 or 4 places.

Anyway, I really hate being in 9th place, so it certainly is a big game for us.

They aren't in the best form and will come after us. Think it'll be a cracker.

Desmond.

This. Can’t really predict a result, but certainly fancy it to be a good game. Don’t get all the doom and gloom either, definitely wouldn’t write it off as a certain loss, there’s only Liverpool we could realistically do that with this season.

They’re not in the same form as early season, Vardy and Maddison particularly. Soyuncu however, is a significant upgrade on Morgan who Jota had a field day with. Evans has looked impressive all season, yet Raul terrorised him last term with his movement.

I’ll go with a slightly optimistic 2-1. It’s not going to be a 7 goal thriller this time, both sides had weak links in the defence last season that got abused.

A vital game if we are to end the season on a high. There will only be a goal in it but with Boly and Jota back we can do it.

For once can we not fall behind please? Leicester are a bit off the boil and time we took more of our chances and made the opposition pay. Three points would be a huge bonus and keep us in the running for top six. If we lose it would be a huge blow and a draw would not be great. We can do it and let's keep another clean sheet.

I watched Leicester's game v Palace last week and wasn't really overawed by them, particularly defensively. They really struggled from set pieces and although I think Soyuncu has had a good season overall, he was often caught out of position.

Could be rich pickings for our Big Willy from set pieces.

Can't see us getting anything from this game to be honest, they are a very good side , and sorry to say their midfield is better and more mobile. Up front we need Traore to be at his best and then hopefully we could hold them. Tough game, but one we really do need to win

This'll be a cracker of a game,
Coin-toss between a 2-2 draw or a 3-2 result, but as to which way the footballing gods will order things I cannot say.

If we do beat them I think they might start to be catchable.
After us they have man city, it's plausible we can close that to 6 points in the next two weeks.
Which is still a big ask....
Edit: ah **** they're 14 points above us. Did me sums wrong.

I feel its time we stamped our mark on the top 6 staple and knocked Leicester down a peg or too
3-1 Wolves
Never Wrong
