  1. And he is still young and going to improve further. Just make sure we tie him down with a massive buyout clause.
  2. Mings, Grealish, and Watkins please, job done for the summer.
  3. Everyone team has suffered this season. Top footballers are like and other elite sports person, they are supremely fit but it is always a fine line between being at the top of your physical ability and being injured. When you have the sort of congested season we have this year there were going to be more injuries, and it is hardest on teams who do not have the depth of quality in their squad to cope with losing starters. We have coped better than most to this point but we have reached our limit now. Injuries all season have meant that we haven't been able to rotate like
  4. We ae going to struggle with the injuries we have at the moment, because we are stripped of any creativity and running power at the top end of the pitch. Means the ball comes back at us a lot quicker, and defending against anyone in this league for large chunks of a game is always a struggle. Rogers wanted another creative midfielder in the Maddison mould last summer because without him we are much less effective and it has shown instantly in the last 2 games, but Maddison type players don't come cheap. We finished today with 6 players on the pitch not long back from se
  5. Got nothing against Cengiz, but I wouldn't be activating the clause to buy him.
  6. If we finish Top 4, we should give everything to bag Jack Grealish, as feel he and Madders can play in the same team and imagine the dynamism Vardy up top, Barnes and Grealish out wide and Madders in the middle ! Give Villa, Perez, Nacho and cash ?
  7. The free signing who keeps putting the more expensive players on the bench. Is he the most brilliant individual player, no, but he is a brilliant team player and the comparison to Milner is not unfair. Some players just make those around them better players, Heskey never scored enough goals as a striker but others loved playing alongside him. I think in Albrighton and Barnes we have a good balance out wide, without exposing our fullbacks too much. Albrighton when he does hang up his boots will deserve to be remembered as a club legend.
  8. Nacho is a nice lad and must work hard in training as Rogers wouldn't tolerate anything less, and clearly not without some talent. However, agree with most on here, he has had long enough and not consistently produced. We cannot rely upon Nacho as a back up to Vardy, not if we are serious about being a top 4 team. Ulloa used to make light of the days Vardy was missing, could lead the line and score a few (think we all expected Slim to do this and even better - shame). We should have taken a punt on Che Adams or Ollie Watkins in the summer, both scoring goals in the championship, eager to prove
  9. Has Rodgers finally found the solution to the enigma that has been Nacho ? I hope so. The reaction of everybody else in the squad tells you he is pulling his weight in training and that they clearly like him as a bloke. Fingers crossed we have found the Nacho we all thought he was. In fairness today he made a difference, his movement was better than I have seen since he arrived. Think we have to chalk this up to Rodgers.
  10. I think England is a bit like Arsenal for Vardy in that they are never going to play a style of football that suits him, or at least that they think will suit him - as Rodgers has shown that Vardy is more adaptable than people give him credit for. They seem to think Vardy is just pace and selfishness, but he is quite the reverse - he works hard for his team. England have wasted Vardy, but don't clamour for them to call he back up, it suits us just fine to keep him at home.
  11. Vardy is not the only one chipping in on the goals front though and this is because he is playing differently for Brendan, and in a way that will give him longer in the game. He has lost a little pace in the last couple of years but Brendan plays him much more central and uses him as a decoy as much as the main man, and this is giving others more space to play in. I think Vardy gets it too, he wants to play as long as he can at this level and sees that he can both score goals and contribute more to the team playing this way. We are lucky he is still here, and that he had enough nous to realise
  12. All the right letters just not necessarily in the right order !!!! My spelling is fine, my typing is less so
  13. I watched use go out to Harlow Town in the FA Cup in 1980 and that was pretty awful, but not nearly as horrible as being beaten 6-0 by Leeds in the League Cup in 2001 although I am proud to recall us chanting 'we want 1' whilst being 6 down an Robbie taking it with a smile as the Leeds fans chanted 'Lily Savage' at him. Really felt for the Southampton fans last night, we have all been there but I have never had to watch us go so meekly to the slaughter.
  14. He is playing wide right, but his finishing last night showed you why long term he will take over from Vardy through the middle, although the way Vardy keeps on going and going, he might have to wait 2/3 years yet !
  15. Perez needs to be understudy to Vardy, there is still lots he can learn from Vardy, but I think this is really what he really is, not a winger.
