    Leicester City away; Build up thread

    Ok, I know we have a game in the Europa League first but I thought I'd fire this up anyway.

    Just a bit of info to anyone who's going to the game, there will be applause on the 24th minute to remember a Leicester fan who passed away in May, aged 24. It would be good for us to join in

    Wolves have ambition and wit... why is it such a crime?

    Every other game there's a minutes applause. The away fans always join in. It's all very special and heartwarming.
    This year, to save me from tears

    I probably shouldn't have laughed when I read that.

    Don't be facetious, Lycan... Many a time we've stood there and no one has had a clue why people are applauding. Just thought I'd pass on the reason early

    If you did that every pre match thread they'd read like an obituary.

    Going to be a tough game I think given our travels to Armenia & Leicester being touted for big things this season.

    Going to be pessimistic and say we will lose 2-1.

    At the risk of invoking my inner Jinky, I really can't say I'm very confident given the travelling back from Armenia.

    We might well be sharper than them (given we've played more 'competitive' games), but it's a long old way back after Thursday night.

    Be a problem if we were playing Friday or Saturday.

    Losing on a Sunday after a Euro trek gives teams/moany managers an excuse. Now if we are travelling the normal route which takes 17 hours, might have a case but we won't be. The players will be back in the UK on Friday after a 7 hourish flight, recovery time is that day. Then they will be in for a normal training session the day before the game and then travel to Leicester and staying over. It isn't ideal we are trekking to the arse end of Europe but done properly and the players managed properly it shouldn't make any difference.

    1-1.

    And I would take that. Anything else is a bonus. Decent squad Leicester.

    The Armenia trip shouldn't take it out of them too much as it not as if they are flying Ryanair economy class - will be back on the Friday & have a bit of wind down/preparation time before the game.

    Plus our 'pre-season' games have had a more competetive element to them than usual (whatever the level of the opposition that cannot of hurt).

    Away from home against a decent team then would accept a draw, but no reason we cannot go there & win.
    This year we will mainly be conquering Europe

    2-0 victory Raul looks very sharp to me.

    Fine by me if he's as consistently useless as last year.

    Patrício

    Bennett Coady Boly

    Jonny Dendoncker Neves Moutinho Vinagre

    Raúl Jota

    SUBS: Ruddy, Vallejo, Saïss, Doherty, Traoré, Cutrone, Gibbs-White

    Traoré benched for being a fucking spanner but Doc looked off the pace to me last night. Rest him for this one and give him another 90 against Pyunik at Molineux.

    Hopefully Gibbs-White fit enough to make the bench.

    Doc also had an ice pack on his knee after he was subbed. Major surprise if he plays.

    Depends if he just jarred it or actually twisted it scoring his goal. He might be ok.

    As that was his first game after a knee injury and his pre-season has seen 60 odd mins of game time, it would be a surprise if he plays. Could do with a full 90 next Thursday

    The front 2 are definitely in fine form at the mo. And no telling what BR's going to do with his CBs. Def an opportunity there.

    Fine margins but I think we can nick a 2-1.

    Soyuncu will play alongside Evans. That's pretty much a given.

    If there as any doubt about Docs knee I'm sure he would have come off

    Even if doesn't play I'd be more than happy with Vinagre and Jonny at wingback

    He did come off...

    I don't think he'll play. But will do next Thursday.
