    The desperation to blame Amartey for everything is bizarre. Both goals down the rhs, absolutely nothing to do with him. 


    As for his 'lack of ability on the ball' his forward passing has been miles ahead of anything Evans and Fofana have managed


    Not saying he is directly responsible for the goals just that he has an overall negative affect on our other defenders. Ricardo for example is much more limited in an attacking sense because he has to cover for Amartey more. 


    You don't have to make an overt mistake or be directly responsible for a goal to come in for criticism.

    Interesting. I thought I remembered a discussion on here and we’d been told it was Prart or Praat. Perhaps I dreamt it. Difficult to tell these days.

    In all fairness she could have been directing the prat towards me rather than saying that's how it's pronounced

    I’ve noticed commentators insist on pronouncing his name as Pratt. Pretty sure that’s wrong and should be more like Prart.

    I asked a Belgian person how it should be pronounced when he first signed for us and she said it was 'Prat' so I'm sticking with that

  4. The way Vardy plays in this 3412 system he is normally operating in the forward left position, receiving the ball and trying to set up Iheanacho. Could definitely see Barnes operating similarly in that position. Then once Barnes is fully fit again we have the option to rotate systems really effectively depending on opposition/personnel.

    Not a prem game but after Everton had 11 men firmly camped behind the ball for 90 minutes today against Man C Pep says "it was a tough tough tough game, Everton showed commitment and focus". After we win 5-2 at the etihad. Pep "they did nothing, they didn't try to play football".


    He's such a bell end i absolutely can't stand him. The lack of respect he shows to certain teams and managers is disgusting. They've won the league and the league Cup but really hope they don't win anything else. 

    Take it as a compliment. We beat them by nullifying their attack and beating their high press. Pep is clearly worried about us and doesn't like being outsmarted by Brendan. 


    On the other hand it's easy for him to compliment a team like Everton who he doesn't see as a threat and with a manager who is probably an old friend of his and not someone who he is threatened by in the same way he is by Brendan.

  6. So pleased for Kel and as others have said I hope he's turned the corner with us now. However I remember after a run of form last season or the season before, with goals against Everton, Villa and a few others and people were saying the same thing. I just hope the fan base don't turn on him again if he goes through another run of poor form.

    Hahahaa I knew this would be a comparison of Leshabela to Tavares. Some fans are genuinely irked that I've championed a classy young player who appeared on his way out and he's then suddenly got games out of nowhere. It's quite clear Tavares has very good technique, the amount of times Rodgers has talked about him in recent weeks when you compare to our other young players coming through shows what he thinks of him.


    Leshabela is a good player, different to Tavares. He's not an attacking midfielder nor a creator as such, more of a box to box player that we want Hamza to be. 


    Good cameo but let's remember the opposition and the scoreline, the sort of opportunity and environment you want to give these young players. Can't wait to see Tavares in such an occasion too.


    Not sure you can take a comparison as fans being irked that you've championed him. I think Tavares looked promising in his two appearances so far, and Leshabela also looked promising today. Albeit against weak opposition at 5-0 up. Just asking why he's seen by the club as less of a prospect than Tavares as I've not seen much of either of them outside the first team. 


    If Hamza goes in the summer and Tavares resigns and is sent on loan then hopefully we'll see Leshabela a bit more in cup games or off the bench. If he does get game time and develops into a good player then our midfield options will be ridiculous. Would be great in a few seasons time to have a midfield full of academy players.
