Saturday's result was Leicester's biggest winning margin since beating Carlisle by the same scoreline in 1982.

Shakespeare welcomed the confidence it will give the players but with back-to-back away games at Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds up next, he knows everyone must remain grounded.

"We said to the boys afterwards how that had been on the cards," said Shakespeare. "You hope that if you turn in the performances, you will get a result like that.

"To score six was great and the defenders and the goalkeeper are delighted to keep a clean sheet, but everyone knows it is just one game. It is a very tough league and we know we will probably play better and not get the result we deserve.

"For the confidence, it bodes well, but we have two tough away games now."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
