  1. Watford (H) post-match thread (2-0 home win)

    That's probably not how a fight between a footballer and a guy that went to jail for kicking a guy in the head would end.

    We have a problem of turning lower league teams into bogeyman. And our FA Cup record reflects it. It took 2 games to get past Derby, 2 to get past Fleetwood, and we all know what happened at the Den. The 4th time ago we got a lower league club in the FA Cup was 4th tier Burton and we got through. 2 years ago we won the league playing gritty workman football against pretentious and complacent elites. Don't turn that table so we're somehow the more important top tier club that is somehow too good for poor lower league Posh but also somehow making them a serious threat. That entitlement is complacency. Complacency is incompetence. Recognize their game and beat it. Don't act like they should roll over because we're from 2 divisions above. And don't blame the ****ing pitch. Come to play. Because they'll say how many of our players cost many times more than their entire squad yet look like they belong in the same league.
  4. is reaching 4th/5th possible ?

    Too many points. It would require both a fortuitous collapse by them and an incredible run by us. Look to consolidate the Europa League place by pushing on in the league and the cup.

    Vardy creates havoc for defenders that no one else in the world can. He did so today. I'm not sure why anyone would have a go at him unless they're desperate to see someone else be given his minutes.... which is a terrible idea.

    Molla Wague has played more times against us than for us.

    The problem is the only way we know how to penetrate the box is on the counter attack at place. We've had this problem for years. It's not new. We are absolutely hopeless at trying to find a way through in high possession situations. Slimani isn't the key to unlock our problem. He stands off defenders back to goal and wanders towards the ball allowing the defense to push up. He's not on the shoulder looking for that through ball or cross, doesn't drag defenders around, and isn't looking to bring teammates into play. He's a big man with a great forehead but he rarely plays like it. All those that are saying he just needs more service are overlooking what he isn't doing is contributing to our high possession problem. In 180' against Fleetwood we had 60 and 70% possession and hit the target 3 times. We needed the counter attack and pace to bail us out in the replay for our 2 goals. (I know the third shot came from Gray but I can't find a clip of the situation.) Slimani played 136' of this. 1 shot on target. Not a high possession striker.

    Pepe brought in Gabby Jesus in Janauary. Played him more and sold Iheanacho in the summer. No reluctance in that.
  10. Leicester vs Fleetwood (FA Cup replay) match thread

    Jakopovic has made 4 big saves in 125 minutes. We still haven't hit the target.

    Slimani doesn't keep the line deep.

    Young, established, and tearing up the lower leagues is what I love to see.

    CP: "The FA Cup, with its history and tradition in England, is important to the fans. It’s a possibility to play against other teams from other divisions. It’s important to respect this competition." Basically the dreaded vote of confidence. Expect a shit XI.
