  1. Nah, we should go all out for the cup! Not like we are in the early rounds. We are one game from Wembley now! Would have been gutted if we had rested players mid-week and may still have gone on to lose this. Top 4 is still well within our hands. 11 point cushion to a totally inconsistent Man U who play Liverpool away next. Crao today but still buzzing about this team and where we are at over all
  2. The same Man U with Solskjaer in charge? They have Liverpool away next and I just can't see them getting their act together anytime soon and going on a consistent winning streak. We may drop off but I'm confident we will do enough and win enough games to stay in the top 4. We were awful today, but still almost got a draw. Everyone needs a rest and hopefully a top winger coming in as well as a CB, will really get us going again. We are 2nd! 11 points clear of Man U and have an amazing squad with a top Manager. Semi Final of Carabao and still in FA Cup. I'm disappointed about today but still buzzing about this Manager and Team over all and still have a lot of confidence we will pick up enough wins to stay clear of the likes of an ever inconsistent Man U!
  3. And which of the totally consistent teams below us will take over us? They are all over the place with results and luckily we have the equivalent of 4 wins on them all. The boys have obviously been playing tired and flat with a game every 3 days and Southampton were very good today which shows in their recent form. We have a transfer window now with funds to spend and our players have a week off, with N'didi who has been our player of the season, due back in few weeks. I still think we will finish 3rd overall with a potential healthy gap to 5th. We just have to get re-energised and sign two top players to complement what we already have.
  4. Chilwell needs to sit a few games out.
  5. 2.08 mins in Couldn't agree more. One of the best centre backs in the league and what an absolute bargain we got him for. Could easily play in a top 4 team IMO (...us )
  6. FA CUP hands down for me. Champions League > Cariboooo Cup though. As others have said, what finishing in the top 4 could do for us in terms of revenue and attracting even higher quality of players, not to mention holding onto the likes of Maddison, Soyuncu, Ricardo etc, outweighs winning the lesser Caribao Cup IMO. To win the FA Cup would be incredible though and I would take that and a likely finish of 6th/7th this season.
  7. After this weekend and the continued hype Leicester and Rodgers deservedly get, I did find my joy turning to concern at the possibility of something like this coming along to pee on our parade. Man U, Chelsea, Arsenal and Spurs could all be changing their manager before Christmas if things take a turn for the worse, and I think Rodgers would certainly be a Manager all four would look at very seriously. I just hope the excitement he is building here along with the new training ground, will be enough to keep him here for at least another 2 years. Maybe that is just me with my blue tinted glasses on, but surely he would think twice at such a move as all four have various issues. Feels like we are genuinely just another season of current player development plus a top winger and striker away from being consistent top 6 finishers with the ability to push even the top four. Hopefully Rodgers see that and the positives of being with a team on the way up, as opposed to ones that are on the slide and in some cases have been for years..*cough Man U*
  8. Stuff all this stats nonsense and real football talk! Who is the Premier League footballer who had to jump out of a hotel window in his pants when caught cheating on his wife!?? https://news.sky.com/story/premier-league-footballer-caught-cheating-on-partner-in-blackmail-plot-jumped-from-hotel-window-court-hears-11814739
  9. I meant we should only select one of them. Preferably N'didi. Doesn't work when we play both of them together. Agree on Barnes out wide too and bring Maddison back behind Vardy.
  10. Feel like he is done here. He has shown no progression whatsoever. We need a top class winger and he needs a fresh start somewhere else. Crazy thing is, I still think he has a decent market value as for whatever reason, he still seems highly rated outside our club. I actually think we could still get a decent fee for him from a team like Bournemouth/Palace etc. £20m in Jan...
  11. No N'didi AND Hamza. No Maddison on the wing. No Gray. Simples.
  12. Disagree with this, as most our attacks start from deep, i.e Kasper or one of the back four have the ball and then pass to the midfield, usually the one who is closest/deepest, N'didi or Choudhury in our case today. Neither are capable of much more than a short, sideways or backwards pass. The build up play then grinds to a hault and we allow the opposition to get set and we lose all our attacking edge in a matter of seconds. If we have Praet or Tielemans dropping deeper and picking up that ball, then I think that completely changes our initiative and pace with the ball. We instantly have a player who is not only capable of running with the ball under control at pace and with agility, we also have a player capable of threading a forward/attacking pass. This can make such a huge difference to the tempo and direction of the game, especially if we turnover possession and have an opportunity of a quick break, something Vardy absolutely thrives on. Too often, we see these opportunities wasted because N'didi or Choudhury are more often than not, not looking or capable of such a run or pass. Have a Tielemans or Praet on the ball, and things happen a lot quicker and with more attacking intent. I still think we are capable of having Maddison and Tielemans playing alongside each other, and actually I think they are essential in someways, but we either have to bring Praet in alongside N'didi to be that deeper playmaker that gets things moving snappier and with more attacking intent OR Tielemans has to be tasked with dropping deeper and picking that ball up.
  13. -----------------------------Schmeichel----------------------------- Ricardo-----------Evans----------Soyuncu------------Chilwell -------------------------N'didi------Praet---------------------------- ------------Perez----------Tielemans--------Maddison--------- --------------------------------Vardy---------------------------------- This formation means that Chilwell and Ricardo really need to get forward and provide the width. Perez also needs to contribute a lot more than he has so far, but Praet will certainly improve on us being more creative from deep. Alternatively... -----------------------------Schmeichel----------------------------- Ricardo-----------Evans----------Soyuncu------------Chilwell --------------------------------N'didi----------------------------------- Albrighton--------Tielemans------Maddison----------Barnes --------------------------------Vardy---------------------------------- Gives us plenty of width but have to guard against countless, hopeless crosses into the box to a well marked Vardy (I'm looking at you Marc!) Tielemans will also need to drop deeper often to get the ball and start our attacks.
  14. Man U did too! That's why we really should have done better tbh. Think Rodgers had us set-up with one hand tied behind our back today. Genuinely think we would have bossed them if we hadn't set up so negatively. Still think we aren't far away from finishing 6th this season, which is all the media/fans have been suggesting. Rodgers has to take the shackles off though for that to happen
