  1. I think the plan not reinforce during january was a mistake. The squad were already looking knackered, and one or two decent back-up or utlity players could have made the difference between top4 and decent progress in the Europa League, or crashing out and falling away from the Champions League places as well. We have a difficult run in with Man Utd, Chelsea, and Spurs to face in the final three matches. January was the chance to kick on and ensure the club make the next level but it looks like we may fall away again. It's criminal that Maddison is the only
  2. We have a tough last three games - Man Utd, Chelsea, Tottenham. Unless we are safely ensconced in the top four before these three matches, I would be worried
  3. Rodgers confirmed in January that this summer they will be looking to buy a replacement for Vardy. That will take a significant (£50-60m?) amount out of any transfer budget we have. We’ll struggle to get in decent backups for Barnes, the entire midfield, and RB/LB. Hopefully the non-compressed schedule of matches may mean that the players aren’t getting crocked as often. While all teams have suffered excess injuries this season, we don’t have quality in depth to compete on 3/4 fronts (Premier League top 4, Europa League, domestic cups). If we do slip out of
  4. This, with Nacho man Randy savage playing behind Vardy instead of Maddison. It’s our only realistic option. Brendan said in an interview that pushing Youri forward into the Maddison role didn’t work, and I think we all agree that we shouldn’t be starting with Choudhury or Mendy ahead of Ndidi/Youri as the two deep lying midfielders.
  5. Prague schooled us over both legs. It was always a worry when we didn’t get the away goal. Rodgers to blame for the stodgy line-up tonight. Not a single chance created over two legs. At least we can now lose to Utd in the cup and focus fully on top 4 and strengthen in the summer.
  6. To be honest, Maddison is the only first team player that Rodgers didn’t have available. Why he chose the stodgy starting 11 he did is bewildering.
  7. Not created a single chance over two legs. Slavia Prague have schooled us in European football
  8. Chancing 2 goals and we bring on 2 fullbacks and a 19 year old. Our squad just isn’t deep enough to compete on so many fronts
  9. Not really created a single chance over two legs. We’re a spent force, Amartey playing RB for most of it, and Luke Thomas at LB for both legs - he was playing youth team football last season. Without Maddison there’s no creativity
  10. I think it’s just a lack of squad depth compounded by a compressed season
  11. We are strong favourites to qualify with the bookies, can't even get Evens.
  12. Another great academy product it seems. 19 years old, third choice LB behind Justin and Fuchs, and he steps up to first team level without batting an eyelid.
