  1. Not sure if I 100% agree there, fella. Justin looked good going forward but you’ll have to admit, a bit uncertain at the back. Needs to be stronger on a cross - too easy to get goal side of him on this occasion. Normally he’s quite good on the cover but it’s usually on the deck not in the air. I also thought Cags could have been more dominant - particularly in those last ten minutes or so when Vydra seemed to be walking through the defence. I’d like him to step into the space more too. He’s shown on occasions some really good distribution. However - what a great 3 points! T
  2. Tough dilemma. United look a little ‘leggy’ and you can get at them. Their defence (particularly De Gea) look susceptible to making mistakes but you still have to force those errors. Takes some courage though and pushing at the right times. Definitely not the right time if it leaves us exposed at the back in any way. We can’t leave any space at all. That’s exactly what they want. We’re actually really vulnerable when we have a corner!! Anticipate they will break like Usain Bolt and do not dilly dally on the ball!! We’re relying on Barnes, Vardy perhaps Tielemans creating something. Anything
  3. I don’t think it’s criticism of his character, age or endeavour - it’s more the fact the impact he has, particularly in an attacking sense. For me, Albrighton doesn’t beat a man so I don’t agree that he drives forward unfortunately. He relies on space and good delivery, which he does admittedly. However, what is the point in him continually putting in balls at height when we have Vardy in the box alone? Too easy to defend and very predictable. Barnes won’t be coming to attack those balls so you look at late runs into the box - from who? Mads or Youri? They aren’t going to threaten centre halve
  4. Did they really? I’m not saying they had a shocker but Evans was so wasteful in possession and Cags always looked liked he had a mistake in him. We didn’t have the cutting edge and still lack fluidity or ideas in the final third. When we do get into good possessions, again, so wasteful it’s unreal. Chelsea must have been pissing themselves at half time to play that badly and go in drawing. On to Everton. We’ll get behind the lads. I liked Praet in there today. Barnes not effective enough today and his touch was so so poor. I’d play Gray on the left.
  5. No more of this “We’re third. What more do you want? Be positive.” That would be easy to do if we could see promise in performance. And those points will soon be eaten up by the chasing pack. Achievement breeds motivation and we’re not that far in front. That’s the performance after a full week’s training and preparation. Worrying signs. We’re going to drop out the top 4 very soon and the I fear that’ll be our season. Lose all momentum and finish disappointingly. We’re not stepping up. We had the benefit of seeing teams drop points yesterday and didn’t have the grit to
