  1. God, Puel really ruined the word "quality" for us
  2. He's all we have to be proud of these days
  3. Manchester United looked painfully average against West Ham. Their defending was nothing special, de Gea is no longer in world class form and when West Ham had all 11 behind the ball they couldn't find their way through. The only thing that scares me is what they look like on the counter attack. Rodgers has to find a way to attack without leaving our back line exposed to their pace. There's nothing wrong with taking a yellow card to stop a counterattack with no fear of accumulation and 5 subs. We have to find the first goal early and then set up to counter attack. It negates everything they are good at.
  4. They just randomly reduced home field advantage by 60%. I get that there's no supporters, but I'm not sure the on field results show any decrease in home field advantage since the restart.
  5. Mask wearing is so bad here. One of the many reasons the US is one of the few countries where the spread COVID is out of control.
  6. With the additional matches we'll have in Europe, it seems like there would be plenty of use for him to stay at Leicester, even if Chilwell stays.
  7. I know people hate Jack Grealish on a personal level, but I think he would be a great target for the summer. We would be the "heel" of the premier league if we trotted out Grealish and Maddison
  8. I was told him and Chilwell were just sitting out because their heads were turned by bigger clubs
  9. For sure. The thing we'll struggle with us their pace on the counter. I'd rather have Justin at RCB than Bennett.
  10. That's not a bad idea. Though I'd rather have thomas on his natural left foot, justin at RCB, and Albrighton at RWB.
  11. There's a paradox in our team selection. If we set up positively, and aim to possess the ball, press high and pin United deep we are susceptible to Tottenham like counterattacks. Our centerbacks are slow, our fullbacks get forward, and we only have ndidi as a defensive midfielder. On the other hand, last time against united we were too negative. Whenever we try to play two defensive midfielders, sit deep and defend we eventually concede. We're one VAR decision away from going behind and then that game plan is out the window. The other thing is that it we sit back, United could pass the ball around forever because they'll advance with a draw, assuming they get a point today vs West Ham. So all that said, we have to just go for it. We have no choice. Rodgers know that. Solskjær knows that. We will set up to attack and it will be a game of who concedes first. If we manage the first goal, maybe we can sit deeper and try through balls to Vardy to finish the game off. But if we concede first, it could get ugly.
  12. We'll certainly have the rest advantage. Manchester United will only have 3 days between games, whereas Leicester will have 6 days between games. The other advantage we will have is being at home. Since the restart we've won 2 (2-0 Sheffield United, 3-0 Crystal Palace), draw 1 (0-0 Brighton) and lost 1 (0-1 Chelsea FA Cup). The last premier league goal we allowed at the KP was back in February against Man City (Gabriel Jesus 80th minute). We will know on Wednesday night what we need from the game.
  13. A good warm up for what is basically a cup final against United
  14. I love Weston, but I don't see how he'd fit in at Leicester. He has a similar skillset to Hamza as a box to box midfielder. He has a huge work rate, he's great in a tackle, and he's good in the air and on set pieces. His passing / possession skill isn't the best. In a 4-3-3 / 4-1-4-1 he's not creative enough to replace a Maddison / Tielemans. I think he'd be a better fit for Everton / Wolves. If we're going after an american, I think Antonee Robinson / Sergino Dest make more sense if we need to replace Ben Chilwell. Gio Reyna would be a great winger to develop, but BvB would be very hesitant to sell him as they rate him higher than Christian Pulisic.
  15. I'll have what your drinking
