Alright.  Let's do this.  I am sure Leicester would love nothing more than to get their first win of the campaign against their closest rival.

Any bets on Brandon Rodgers getting the sack by the end of the day if they lose?

Ward claims a foul. Evans blocks the shot from O'Brien out for a corner that...is eventually called offside.
 
2022-10-03 3:06:48 PM  
Vardy with a half chance

Maddison with a great cross but Dewsberry-Hall heads it wide
 
2022-10-03 3:09:11 PM  
Forest free kick out for a corner...2nd one cleared away.
 
2022-10-03 3:11:40 PM  
Foxes try a training ground play but can't quite pull it off.
 
2022-10-03 3:11:44 PM  
Those are proper kits, nice simple primary colors
 
2022-10-03 3:12:28 PM  
From a long ways out but Doosebury is wide
 
2022-10-03 3:13:01 PM  
Dewsbury-Hall with a go from distance that he shanked wide right.
 
2022-10-03 3:14:16 PM  
On accolade Haaland has been associated with yet is consecutive games with a goal. He'll end up with that too
 
2022-10-03 3:14:52 PM  
That should be 1-0 Foxes

Right?  Like Chelsea/Aresenal or a Merseyside Derby: simple, smart, easy on the eyes.

They have had multiple chances.  That was a wonderfully timed run by Vardy.  Too bad he could finish iat.

Leicester again knocking on the door but no finish.
 
2022-10-03 3:22:32 PM  
Ah Forest off the woodwork!
 
2022-10-03 3:22:53 PM  
Forest denied by Post!
 
2022-10-03 3:22:56 PM  
Post keeps Forrest off the board.
Really should have scored.
 
2022-10-03 3:25:29 PM  
And the Fixes bite first, a bad clearance attempt plus deflection ... gol

I cut the African teams some slack because of the yellow and green usually found on them, but routinely, the most obnoxious kits are Croatia and the US


Leicester finally break through
 
2022-10-03 3:26:33 PM  
That is just bad luck for McKenna.
 
2022-10-03 3:27:05 PM  
Barnes has found the range, 2-0 just like that
 
2022-10-03 3:27:26 PM  
BARNES!

THE KP IS ROCKING NOW
 
2022-10-03 3:28:34 PM  
Forest better tighten up or it will get worse, Leicester are feeling it

whither_apophis: Forest better tighten up or it will get worse, Leicester are feeling it


You know Leicester want it.  They need the win, and to get the first of the season in a derby is just a good morale booster.
 
2022-10-03 3:31:32 PM  
Vardy offside and he knew it.
 
2022-10-03 3:34:25 PM  
Kouyate booked for the foul just outside the box.
 
2022-10-03 3:35:25 PM  
Oh that was pretty
 
2022-10-03 3:35:37 PM  
Booooom
What a free kick by Maddison.

2022-10-03 3:41:20 PM  
not surprised to come back to another goal
 
2022-10-03 3:42:43 PM  

whither_apophis: not surprised to come back to another goal


It was a peach of a free kick.

There was no excuse for that getting through.  None. Keeper really should have stopped it.

Lovely little back heel flick for Daka.
4-0

If you're the NF public relations guy don't you have a different local charity on the kit every game or some such while you have no shirt sponsor?
 
2022-10-03 4:50:53 PM

whither_apophis: Brendan's job is safe for a week or two


Well, with their next opponent being Bournemouth, I'd say he is safe for the fortnight.
