  1. Might get some flack for this, but I prefer Mendy to Hamza for the Ndidi role. He's done it before, he's a little savvier on the ball, and we can't afford to lose possession in the middle of the pitch.
  2. Nacho ought to have started, IMO. We just haven’t gotten anything consistent going today, but we’ve also been exposed a few times by an absolutely cooking Danny Ings - so maybe that would backfire.
  3. VAR and the post are the real stars of this match.
  4. The universe is clearly working against Ings this afternoon. We ought to be 2 goals down.
  5. Like I just said, Vardy has gotten so much better at facilitating!
  6. Vardy has gotten so much better at facilitating others through timely passing.
  7. Underlying advanced stats suggest that a healthy Danny Ings really is as good as or better than Harry Kane, surprisingly.
  8. I think that we'll need Nacho on the pitch, as the interplay between him and Vardy might help us to breakdown their press. Either way, this will be a stouter test than we might have expected after the absolute drubbing we put on them earlier this season.
  9. Benko?! Wild. Don’t mind the lineup though.
  10. Hamza’s goal was impressive - he absolutely crushed that ball - but the layoff was nearly as impressive.
  11. Newcastle have looked better of late but I would think that we have more than enough to get this one done. Vardy back, and fresh - Maddison mostly rested / fresh - Soy back in the line-up - etc. Suspect that we'll lead with Nacho next to Vardy, but I have no reason to believe that other than a feeling.
  12. Vardy v Liverpool One of the only goals that left me utterly slack jawed.
  13. An apt summary. Felt like our first half left something to be desired, even as we outplayed them.
  14. That was a nice counter-attack. Dipped and weaved through the defense. Still hope we make some positive substitutions to keep the pressure on.
  15. 60th minute, hopefully, will see the introduction of some fresh attacking threats.
  16. That was a very disappointing half. Felt disjointed, as one could expect given the mass changes.
