Please read, like, share and, most importantly, enjoy this week's edition of INSIDE INFO - the original (we're looking at you, www.southamptonfc.co.uk) Saints column which gets the opposition's views ahead of their match against our beloved Southampton.
St. Mary's Musings: What were your expectations of Leicester's season and how does that compare to the present?
Joe Brewin: I expected us to finish in the top half, but not much beyond that really. Things were obviously not going to be anything like last season but, even without Kante, I thought our squad was still capable of doing something good. Sadly the new signings haven't had much of an impact, though, and our game just isn't as effective against wised-up teams.
SMM: Why aren't Leicester enjoying the heights of last season?
JB: So many reasons: 1) Our players just aren't as arsed, and I can sort of understand it. Even as fans we're somewhat apathetic about the losing after 2015/16. 3) Everyone else is much better. 4) Kante really was that good. 5) Teams are too wise - Vardy isn't getting that space in behind like he did before. The only team who gave it to us properly were Man City, and we pumped them 4-2.
SMM: How have the new signings got on?
JB: Pretty badly. Ahmed Musa has looked an expensive flop other than his two goals against Everton in the FA Cup; Ron-Robert Zieler didn't shower himself in glory when he got his chances; Luis Hernandez is already being shifted on; Nampalys Mendy is only just back in the side after injuries; Bartosz Kapustka must be wondering why he bothered. Wilfried Ndidi looks like he could be very handy, but it's still very early days for him.
SMM: What are your thoughts on Claudio Ranieri?
JB: It's impossible not to adore the bloke. I suspect he's the kind of man players love working for, and he can't do a great deal wrong from our point of view. Essentially he's immune to any serious flack after last year.
SMM: What do you make of Southampton's season so far?
JB: Up and down, but you can't always be impressive. I have a lot of admiration for the way Saints rebuild successfully each year and promote from within, so some dodgy spells are always to be expected. I have to admit, though, that I'd be miffed to lose that many players so regularly. Is the wage structure really so unappealing?
SMM: If you could sell any Leicester player from your regular starting XI, who would it be and why?
JB: We haven't got that many players left to sell now, in truth. We're badly lacking defenders with Hernandez looking likely for a Spain return, Schlupp has gone to Palace and Ulloa is on his way too most likely.
SMM: If you could buy any Saints player, who would it be and why?
JB: Virgil van Dijk. Obviously.
SMM: Who should Saints fans watch out for on Sunday?
JB: Ndidi. He was nicknamed 'The Octopus' during his days at Gent because his limbs were everywhere cutting out attacks. He's the guy we're properly banking on to fill that Kante void.
SMM: Finally, what is your prediction for the game?
JB: It's hard to be optimistic right now, especially as we can't win away. If our defence can hold out then I wouldn't put it past us to nick a 1-0, but more realistically I'd say 2-1 Southampton.
