Leicester fans know the strengths and weaknesses of their team.
Last season only the top six clubs scored more than Leicester’s 56 goals.
At the other end, only four PL clubs conceded more than the 60 the Foxes leaked.
This season more of the same, 11 scored in their opening six games but 10 conceded.
They turned up at St James Park concerned about the frailties of their own side but then left, wondering just how bad Newcastle United are.
Just look at the comments below, any Newcastle fans who are already stressed should maybe not risk reading on…
Leicester fans comment via their top Foxes Talk message board:
‘Solid performance, midfield and defence looked good
Newcastle are shocking.’
‘Easy peasy. Newcastle are going down.’
Maguire was back to his best today, he’s been very poor so far this season but that was the Maguire of last season.
Newcastle are the pits.’
‘We’ll have far harder days than this. We were passing it around with impunity at times. But you can only beat what’s in front of you.’
‘Professional win away from home.
Easy 3 points.’
‘Easiest Win we will see this season.’
‘Was it my imagination or did Leicester just win a match playing in 3rd gear?’
‘Solid, great to get a clean sheet. Going the right way. Newcastle are really really sh.. mind.’
‘On the basis of that today, Newcastle are in for a long, hard, horrible season. Absolutely rotten.
That said, plenty of credit to Claude Puel and Leicester for a fine away performance – a very comfortable and enjoyable win.’
‘Ever so comfortable. Played lovely football and controlled the game. Even if Newcastle weren’t at the races. We didn’t have to get out of second gear.’
‘I appreciate Newcastle were horrific but a 2-0 away win in the premier league should not be taken for granted.’
‘I dont believe we will get an easier game than that all season. Newcastle were totally gutless and we didn’t get out of 3rd gear all game.
Not getting carried away by that win but a solid workmen like performance. My word how bad were Newcastle.’
‘Very comfortable, a clean sheet, more positive performances from certain players.
Newcastle were poor, they have too many Championship quality players.’
‘Great to see Mendy & Amartey – two players written off on here, getting a run in the team & getting better with every game
The front 3 never really clicked today……..luckily for Newcastle, who were terrible.’
‘Newcastle are in big trouble, you look at their side and it doesn’t seem too bad.
They created nothing, no impetus, no energy, no endevour; they’re winless and joint bottom of the League with Hudders & Cardiff.’
‘Difficult for Rafa working for that tight tw.t Ashley!!’
‘We’ve had a touch having Huddersfield and then Newcastle, it’s given us a much needed confidence boost. 6 points, 5 goals scored and even managed a clean sheet. Both teams are a disgrace and this gives us a good platform now to kick on’
‘What a tactical masterclass from Benitez the genius.
Against a team who can’t defend and coached by one of the worst managers ever who has no idea what he is doing, his team had the impressive number of one shot on target (from 60 meters away).
I cant’ wait we fire Puel to hire him, he ‘s soooooo much better.’
‘Not quite fair though. I’m not a huge Benitez fan, but our second XI is much better than their first.’
‘Fairly pleased with that. Would have liked to have created more from open play but I’m not complaining. Maguire MOTM by a mile won the pen, goal saving tackle and scored as well. special mention for Mendy, superb, Kante-esque. If he hadn’t got injured Claudio might still be here. Chilwell got forward well as well,Amartey did well and Morgan didn’t put a foot wrong.’
‘Newcastle have not allowed more than 2 goals yet in the Prem, and they have played Spurs, @Man City, and Arsenal. They just held Palace to a scoreless draw, far more than we have done lately vs. CP.
So… I get why people find this match boring, but Newcastle is exceedingly well-drilled defensively — they hunt in packs and were very effective double-teaming us when we tried to advance up the sidelines. They seem to set up for a draw then open up after 75 min or so to try to steal it, so there just weren’t many opportunities for us today, they filled space exceedingly very well.’
‘Did anyone see Merson’s comments? He was disappointed in Newcastle for not turning up as we’re not a good side…’
‘That was a simple stress-free afternoon.’
‘Wow, we managed to beat Rafa! Remember this day.’
