If Evans had tapped home from 6 inches out it bloody would have been 10

Soooo close, but great that we're now not the only ones. I thought with the 8-0 the other night that it may never happen, defenses becoming more professional every year. Good stuff.

So.

What odds would you have given that both teams that hold the record jointly had a Schmeichel in goal!

Amazing and was obviously the reason we didn't win 10-9 that day...

Just watched the match recorded earlier, brilliant result for Leicester City, but wow if only they could have taken that record off Man U. Like the rest of you it makes me feel sick every time I hear reference to our record defeat at Old Trafford.

By another strange coincidence I have a vague memory of watching, on TV in black & white, town thump 9 past Southampton at Portman road. Wasn't that an old Div 1 record too?

Astounding. Was vaguely aware there were a game involving the teams but to learn of that score is something else. Can see why Leicester won the league a year or two back although guessing some of the names involved from now and no longer employed by the club. Town did conceded ten by Fulham years back just for the purpose of the younger generation but kind of a relief to see another team hit by the same score as ourselves back in '95.

Feel some sympathy for Southampton particularly on their own stadium. The price of being among the home support and listening to what was being discussed (and the language with it) would have been worth something and then some.

Would’ve definitely been worth something when it was 5-0 @ HT........ but @ 6,7,8 & 9-0, would’ve only been a smattering of Leicester fans at St. Mary’s. At 7-0, I’d guess a few attending Saints fans would’ve been home putting the kettle on.
