Leicester fans with astonishing comments after losing 4-2 to Newcastle United
Leicester fans have been keen to talk about what they watched on Friday night.
However, I doubt very much whether Brendan Rodgers and his players will be wanting to listen / read what they have to say.
Some Quite astonishing comments (see below) from the Leicester fans, leading me to have to actually check the Premier League table and who is playing in the FA Cup final next weekend.
The odd voice or reason but the over the top, often vicious, comments are intriguing, especially when you are looking from the outside.
Leicester are playing in the FA Cup final and are currently fourth in the Premier League with three games to go, five points clear of West Ham who have a match in hand.
Newcastle had won four of twenty five games (all competitions) before Friday night, Leicester fans had seen their team lose only four of their last twenty four PL matches.
Indeed, in their last nine games (all competitions), Leicester had won six and drawn one, only losing two.
Leicester fans commenting via their Foxes Talk message board:
‘Rodgers has been schooled by Bruce. Rodgers out, Bruce in!’
‘First time I’ve ever been embarrassed to call myself a Leicester fan.’
‘About 5 players starting tonight that I wouldn’t be sorry to sell in the summer.
Most talented team we have ever had but they have absolutely nothing about them. Fancy pants Instagram posers the lot of them.’
‘I hate losing. However, it happens sometimes. I absolutely hate losing when we do so because we lack effort and application. It’s a cliche but we didn’t show up today. It was a cowardly performance.’
‘Sometimes you just come up against a team too good, with a manager who’s too smart, and a desire for 16th place that’s just too much to match.’
‘That was a f.cking disgusting performance.
‘I’ve been saying for a while now that fans should not expect players to share the same heart as we do for our club. We saw that tonight. All of us would have played selflessly and put our bodies on the line and risked not playing at Wembley to put a crucial three points on the board tonight. What we saw instead was a bunch of employees in our colours looking not to put too much in just in case they might miss out next week. There were no guts tonight.’
‘I did not enjoy that.’
‘Another 5 minutes and we’d have had them.’
‘Absolutely gross. That just shows exactly what we are, pretenders. When it comes to the crunch, we never, ever turn up.’
‘Embarrassing. Disgraceful. Disgusting.
That’s Champions League football gone. Again.
‘If Evans is out until after after FA Cup final we might as well wrap the season now and not bother getting on the coach. That is all.’
‘We’re Leicester, not Arsenal, and this is the Premier League where anybody can beat anybody. We have no right to expect. Having said that, we were sh.t.’
‘Should give the under 23s the chance to play at Wembley and drop this shower.’
‘Absolute horror show from the team tonight especially Ndidi and Soyuncu.
Bottling it again and Rogers should have gone 433 after 10 minutes. Total bottle job from him too.’
‘Maddison is a disgrace, get in your Lamborghini and p.ss off to Coventry.’
‘So disappointing!Showed disrespect to Newcastle and they punished us!’
‘I might be in a minority but I would like to see the back of many if that were to happen again. Couldn’t give a toss if it drops us down the table. 5th means nothing. Europa League is a waste of time and resources.’
‘Angriest I’ve been during a game in ages. Made Newcastle(!) look like world beaters.’
‘Vardy, when you will start scoring ? Probably we need new “vardy” because existing is old guy.’
‘Poor showing for 80 minutes.
Perez made the difference.
Some major overreactions in the match tread.
We’ll go again, just a cr.p night at the office with a bit of on-field game management missing.
Maddison, Ricardo and Vardy don’t look right though.’
‘The thing is as much as I’d love to finish top 4, this side has shown time and time again that when the sh.t hits the fan we crumble.
It’d be great to be called a European club and all that, but is there any point if you’re just going to throw it all away when the going gets tough?’
