    I haven't this season tbh, last season I did when I had the chance and if that's the case then maybe I'm wrong or maybe his enthusiasm has gone, don't know, can only comment on what I've seen.

    I'm not basing my view on highlights, I've watched probably every match he's played and some he's played for U23s, I don't need you to take my comments seriously, it's all a matter of opinions and I have mine which I know bucks the trend. I don't think he's brilliant, I just don't think he's terrible and that it's disrespectful to tell him to f' off.

    The bad challenge pre season always comes out but I just didn't see the numerous bad challenges you mention, he does make challenges to high up the pitch which could be down to not getting the pace of the prem, you can see on his highlights vid that when he wins the ball it looks fantastic but lose it and if no one is covering it puts you in trouble. We've seen Wes get sent of numerous times in a row, we've seen Maguire go missing or make back passes giving the ball away. In the grand scheme of things I think slagging the bloke off is out of order, if we saw him play a season in a settled back 2 and he made serious errors or had a bad attitude or disciplinary record then fine, but give the bloke a break ffs.

    Give me some examples of how mistakes he made cost us? I admit he would try to defend quite high up the pitch but I remember when he came in the side we went from hoofball to playing out from the back, he's comfortable on the ball and has made some decent challenges, he never really got a massive run of games.

    I really don't see what people's problems are with Benny. He signed for us and got the best contract he could, when he played for us he gave his all, he wants to play - so what? I think he gets more stick than he deserved, personally when he played when Morgan/huth injured he bought in passing out from the back. I think he's a lot better than people here give him credit for.

    That Vardy dive

    I felt Vardy was singled out, a leg did come out and it looked as if he was anticipating the trip, all forwards do it - I don't think he appealed did he.

    In It Together?

    No he wasn't, end of the season when he played he was brilliant

    Kelechi Iheanacho / Nacho Man

    I'm a fan of Nacho and have stuck up for him but am losing my faith, I thought he needed to come deeper yesterday when required. I also wonder how many touches gray had when he came on, seems just as bad to me.

    Shout out for Simpson.

    Definitely
  10. A team set up for your lower end table sides, we'd get goals.

    to play with Madderz, better than Gray, Ghezzal, Albrighton

    Kelechi Iheanacho / Nacho Man

    We need better attacking midfielders

    Kelechi Iheanacho / Nacho Man

    For me I think he has strikers instinct, when you see his goals they're always in the corners, but you're right about his assists, I thought he played really well with Vardy if that partnership were left to develop. He's 22 with is birthday in October.
