Shakespeare hopes to carry on 'impossible' Leicester dream

Unfiltered Graeme Souness returned to our screens last night on TV3, letting the criticism flow following Leicester's triumph against Sevilla in the Champions League last-16.

Schmeichel was just a boy when his dad won the Champions League in Barcelona against Bayern Munich 18 years ago.

But Cottee believes their underdog status could once again be their biggest strength against the big boys. I've been all the way down in League Two (fourth tier) and to be standing here in the Champions League quarter-finals is incredible. "He was anxious that they'd let me go if he saw the shape I was in".

Juve coach Massimiliano Allegri was not entirely satisfied and warned his side must improve, whoever they are drawn against in the last eight.

Leicester's lead held at half-time and they doubled their advantage nine minutes into the second half when defender Adil Rami knocked down a Mahrez free kick into the path of Albrighton who produced a clinical finish.

"To beat Sevilla, the three-time Europa League winners who had not conceded a goal away from home in this competition, can not be sniffed at".

I've heard a lot of criticism from the players and my mate Tony Gale was at the game and said we didn't play well either so when I watched the highlights I was expecting the worst.

That said, Petty wasn't any better as he had only three touchdowns to seven interceptions in four starts in six games played. Cutler is the first quarterback in Bears franchise history to post five 3,000-yard passing seasons (2009-10, '12, '14-15).

That would come early in the second half, with Marc Albrighton taking advantage of a poor clearance from Adil Rami to smash the ball home.

Leicester keeper Schmeichel made a great save to keep out Nasri's stinging shot, but Sevilla struggled to find the passing rhythm that had overwhelmed its opponent in the first-leg. We have gone out and played more like we did last season and we are reaping the rewards of it now. However, from the cringe-worthy banner of Craig Shakespeare with what appeared to be a pack of hounds, to the thousands of flags being waved, it created a scene that couldn't not inspire the players. "It is doubtful to be honest, but what we do know is a rookie called Shakespeare is writing a brand new love story to make the tragic tale of Ranieri's demise feel like a thing of the past".

That was the fact that Bournemouth simply wanted it and needed it more than we did.

"We would have everything to lose and they know how to hurt teams who try to control the game".

Captain Morgan said on BT Sport 2: "We've pulled off the impossible again".

It's about 100 miles from London to Leicester - personally, we WOULD be surprised if he ran back to the capital after that.

The timing of Sunday's game couldn't be better for Atletico with Sevilla reeling from disappointing setbacks both in the league and the Champions League. "We didn't want them playing their passing game and you could see that from the first minute".
