  1. Very much reminds me of the goal Argentina scored at the 2006 World Cup - and no this isn’t just a way to shoehorn in the wonderful Esteban Cambiasso. Whilst not quite having the intricate passes around the penalty area, the appreciation of space and awareness of where each teammate was is very similar in both strikes. In a similar vein, the two passages of play very quickly switched from moving the opponents around with passes to very quick and incisive one touch play when there was room to exploit. Sign off a well-drilled and well-coached team. https://youtu.be/-YHbG
  2. Brighton really must hate playing us. Not beat us since 2014, only scored three goals against us since they got promoted. We've scored five goals alone after 80+ minutes, including two winners (both of those being this season) πŸ˜‚
  3. A bit baffled by some of those calling for an under-strength team. We have a realistic chance of going very far in this competition. Yes, Slavia are a decent side as shown by their excellent form so will certainly not be pushovers. However, it's the Czech league at the end of the day. I would say it's arguably more important getting a result this week with it being away. Win this game, get a couple of away goals and then maybe think about changing the team next week. After all, if they win their home tie, they will more than likely set up for a draw when they come to us
  4. One of those days today unfortunately. Players nowhere near up to standard, a lot of them off form; Evans, Mendy, Maddison, Albrighton, Perez. Made too many wrong decisions, whether that be the wrong pass or one too many touches. That's simply what it was, mistakes costing us. Whilst I and others will be begrudged to admit, those mistakes got punished by a decent side
  5. Very much deserved that. Indicates excellent progress to me, consistently going shoulder to shoulder with the "big six" and not being overawed or overwhelmed. Shoule bode well for a European challenge this season. Ndidi, Fofana and Justin were all excellent but think Tielemans has to be man of the match. Maddison wasn't great and neither was Albrighton but as a few other posters have said, he was very good defensively. In the end, a fair result πŸ‘
  6. At the moment, I've got a definite feeling of if we score the first goal in the game, we're more than likely to win. However, as soon as we go 1-0 down I'm almost resigned to losing as teams know that if they shut up shop, we're incapable of coming back. It was exactly the same today, against West Ham, against Fulham etc etc etc. Could also explain the disparity between home/away results. For example, teams are more inclined to go forwards at home, hence our attacking players have a lot more space to operate and be dangerous. Fair play to Everton, they got their game pl
  7. Would say I'm not bothered about his match considering the packed fixture list already but something really would grind my gears losing to Arsenal. Having said that would still change the team quite considerably. Ward Justin Morgan Soyuncu Thomas Choudhury Dewsbury-Hall Maddison Gray Iheanacho Under
  8. Massively enjoyed that. Some of that zip and swagger that we saw at the start of last season was back. Looked likely to score every single time we went forwards. Really impressed. Barnes, Tielemans, Praet, Castagne and Mendy all deserve huge credit. The fact that they could all have been candidates for man of the match really is telling. Yes we still looked a little ropey defensively which could get punished but in the grand scheme if things, whilst we're winning it does not matter all too much. All looking good 🦊
  9. Feeling relatively confident about this one. They play tonight against a physical Sheffield United side and with a few players out injured, a few could well play tonight who will be in the side on Sunday. Not to mention the attention around Tarkowski and Dyche's futures. Cue a 1-0 Burnley win πŸ˜‚
  10. Personally, I like Ayoze. He's got a good touch and awareness which is far more suited to the no. 10 role where we've seen a lot of his better performances. It's abundantly clear he's not a winger though as he's not really got the pace or positional sense to play there. Think the price tag has raised expectations somewhat which I can understand to a degree with him being a Β£30m signing. He definitely brings something to the squad though and we always look worse when he doesn't play.
  11. Better first touches and both Perez and Praet would have had one-one-ones...
  12. Absolutely deserved to lose today. Southampton absolutely played us off the park. With two many players off it today (Chilwell, Barnes, Perez, Maddison the main culprits), it was never going to be a win. Always felt that if we got anything out of the match, it was going to be an absolute steal. We've not had too many performances like that under Rodgers which I think is why we're all disappointed. On the ball, we were absolutely horrendous. Every single player was guilty of giving the ball away and making the wrong decisions so no qualms about the result. Ha
  13. Here's a question ahead of the weekend's games, which way do we want Man City vs Man Utd going at the weekend? Man City win to extend out gap to United or United win to potentially extend the gap to second... Thinking about it, a draw sounds just about perfect πŸ˜‚
  14. I do sympathise slightly with the Mercury. The days of the local paper getting access to the club are long gone but the appetite of supporters hasn't. They've got to get their stories from somewhere to even compete just a tiny bit with the constant noise that is generated around PL clubs, especially in the time of digital journalism. The click-bait stuff really does wind me up the wall though. All of this "so-and-so said this and Leicester fans will love/hate it" nonsense and it ends up being someone like Allardyce saying Vardy is playing well. Nobody really cares.
  15. Understand that the media are more than capable of spinning a story to sell it. Still doesn't make the quotes okay.
