Vardy strikes me as being a cocky little so and so, but you can't deny he delivers the goods.
That second goal showed he doesn't mess things up under pressure.
He used to be a bad 'un. He did a short spell for GBH after kicking some bloke's head in outside a pub, who he thought had been messing around with his g/f. On release, he was tagged and could only train during certain hours. This was some years before joining Leicester I hasten to add.
That second goal was fantastic. I thought he'd been training with Leicester Tigers, the rugby club. Keeper was way off his line, and Vardy always spots this.
I found out something today. That joke I posted above about the half time team talk, that was doing the rounds on Facebook, wasn't so far from the truth.
Apparently the Sunderland players were overheard in their changing room dissing Leicester, asking how Leicester could possibly be top of the league having played so badly in the first half of that game.
Message got through to the Leicester camp and all hell was let loose. Vardy in particular was highly vocal I understand. And of course the second half was another story.
That's disgraceful, but I don't just blame the underhanded touts for this, the club needs to address their ticketing policy too.
Obviously there's been unprecidented demand this season, but regular fans who hold season tickets must be given priority. Yes this would mean x number of seats would remain empty (not many), but they've been paid for already and the money's in the bank making interest.
I think also it's time to spend some of the profits on extending and improving the ground so as to add more seats. 32,000 is too small for a Premier League club, and being as we're playing European football next season, demand is going to be high again. Even the Stadium Of Sh*te (Sunderland) has a 49,000 capacity.
