Pearson rues quickfire goals

Leicester boss Nigel Pearson admitted Watford's two quick goals just before the break knocked his side out of their stride after they fell to a 2-1 defeat.

Troy Deeney and a Nathaniel Chalobah stunner from 30 yards put Watford 2-0 up at the break and although Harry Kane's header hauled the hosts back into the game midway through the second half, they couldn't find an equaliser.

"The two goals, at the time that they came, knocked us for six. It affected the players visibly" said Pearson. "And we could have conceded another one before half-time as well.

"The second goal was a quality strike and there wasn't a lot we could have done about that in all honesty.

"We had a go in the second half and it's just not happened for us again.

"We had to make a fist of it in the second half and I thing we did. I think the players worked hard to try and get back into it but, again, it just didn't happen for us.

"We couldn't have got any more attacking players on the pitch and I think the players have given everything again, I couldn't have asked for much more from them.

"But it wasn't enough and unfortunately that's been the story too often this season, and that's a shame because there's been a lot of good things about us this season.

"However, we haven't won enough tight game and our run since early February has been really damaging."

his isn't directed at Van Gaal in particular, but, let's be honest, you don't have to be a tactical genius to beat Arsenal at the moment do you? I will say one thing...he put Van Persie on Monreal deliberately? Our Robin hardly had a touch did he? So did that really work? Hmmm....I'd stick to substituting Keepers (yes,yes, it was directed towards him in the end....)

hat a load of Bull***t. DiMaria hardly had a kick and they won because of a dodgy offside and a breakaway goal when Arsenal were chasing. Good luck to them they got their points but to try and claim this as some sort of tactical masterstroke is laughable, It was luck pure and simple.

Equating Rodgers To Hodgson. Oh Dear Me.

It's a Mailbox many will have been waiting. Brendan Rodgers gets a little bit of a stick, but there is at least praise for Manchester United,Van Gaal, Palace and Tottenham...

Oh Arsenal. Why Oh Why Oh Effing Why?

We have plenty of fallout from Arsenal's latest display of outrageous incompetence, plus the question of why every team seems to be getting worse. Plus, another Garcia ghost goal...
