  1. Ndidi has it in his locker to play some great passes. It’s when he’s put under pressure in his own half he struggles to remain composed. He’s miles better than he was last season, but for me still needs to improve his composure in the defensive third.
  2. Some truly woeful performances. Choudury, Mendy, Amartey, Ricardo were all terrible tonight. Much better with 4 atb. At least it wasn’t a loss. Need a win at the weekend.
  3. Personally I think Timmy isn’t that great on the left, seems far more comfortable on the right to me. Plus Ricardo’s dribbling ability makes him pretty useful on either flank.
  4. Agree with a lot of this. Would say we should have 5 wingers, one being perez as well so then get a top draw right winger in (same as you). Really hard to decide who we need. I disagree with most and I don’t think the player we need is Thauvin, but at the same time I don’t have any better suggestions. Not sure Fairve could go straight into the line up which is what we’d need. Think someone like Tarkowski would be a class move. Reckon we could get him for £15m with his contract being up soon and I think we need someone of his quality to keep up with game demand and the agein
  5. Seen a couple links this morning, not sure how reputable this source is in Netherlands? https://www.telegraaf.nl/sport/560959914/pascal-struijk-in-beeld-bij-leicester-en-napoli Seems a strange one to me, not seen a lot of him but what I have seen he doesn’t look great?
  6. Can kamal sowah replace gray as 5th choice winger? Got a great work rate. Bigger priority is replacing cengo with a winger that can really contribute every game, whether that be with g/a or work rate (e.g. albrighton).
  7. We won’t get £50m plus for Ricky. Chilwell who was a young, English player being bought by a club with money to burn and he only went for £45m. I think if we do sell Ricky, it’ll be because he wants to go and we’ll get £35-40m I imagine. I still think Ndidi’s ball playing ability isn’t good enough for one of the top top clubs. If you look at all the players those clubs have their currently in that position, their first role is to dictate the game (Kimmich, Veratti, Busquets, Rodri etc) whereas that isn’t wilfs job. Maddison is a difficult one because I don’t know where
  8. Hilarious reading the comments through every match. So many mentions of perez yet nobody sees under completing more passes for Brighton than for us.
  9. Reminds me of Gray, looks very promising and does some good things but his end product is usually wrong, he is very wasteful and not great defensively. Would assume he’s not likely to sign as he seems to be third choice RW atm
  10. 5/6 players worse than him today. Doesn’t deserve the abuse at all.
  11. Beaten by the better team. Really poor defensively and not much better going forward. Team selection was fine, no need to change it when we’ve been playing our best football all season. Missing key players as well. People need to keep their heads screwed on.
  12. Completely agree, they played 4 centre backs and two cdms, and dropped so deep. There was no room for anyone to do anything, I still think it’s a miracle youri got his shot off when he was surrounded by so many players. Vardy may have occupied the defenders more and created a little more space, but even then we’re clutching at straws. Genuinely the most defensive performance I’ve ever seen from a team.
  13. Not defending albrighton either, he had his worst game for a while. But I didn’t see anything from cengo to suggest he should start ahead of him. Although that could be the better option when vards is out.
  14. Yeah I agree. Had a few positive runs and looks like he could make something happen, but not sure he completed many passes, crosses or shots?
  15. Hasn’t really worked out so far imo. Hasn’t been given loads of opportunities but whenever he’s started (except AEK) he’s been fairly poor. Gives the ball away a lot with too many shots, most have been pretty poor. I think perez offers more and I think he’s a back up at best. He offers good attacking intent but so far has lacked the quality to make a real impact. Would I pay £24m for him? Currently no, but hopefully he settles in the second half of the season and can improve his efficiency.
  16. Who Iheanacho? Despite him missing 2 very good chances, he had other shots and misplaced numerous passes. I try not to be too harsh on players, but he was palaces best player today, if it was vardy with those chances we win those games. Hence why we need another striker in asap.
  17. Not Brendans fault at all, missed chances, then got complacent, then got rattled when they scored. Harvey saved us. But players that were playing well at the start of the season are now looking like very poor options. Iheanacho, praet and Mendy were poor today imo. Need a striker in jan, jovic is avaliable for loan and we should go for it, even if there’s a hefty loan fee involved. Can’t cope with watching iheancho play one good game a season.
  18. Tbh I think we have an 11 that can contend for the title. I think our issue is that we need more players that can fill in and we still be challengers. City have probably 15/16 players that can make a contending 11. Liverpool less so, but their first 11 is almost flawless. Another top class striker that comes as bit deeper and gets involved more if Vards isn’t getting the ball much in a game. A world class winger with a bit of a spark e.g. Mahrez. And maybe another cm option if we find we’re not dominating games.
  19. We’re all disappointed but people calling for Rodgers to go when we’re in a similar place to Tottenham who have one of the greatest managers of all time and a squad twice as expensive as ours is ridiculous. We’re massively over performing for our players, manager and financial capabilities would suggest. Let’s all relax for a bit.
  20. If Leicester fan tv was a thing, it would be more popular than Arsenals version. Complete meltdown every time we lose. They had one shot on target in the second half, just one of those days. Already qualified in EL and in a great position in the league despite so many injuries. Some people need to grow up a wee bit.
  21. Watching us play with Mendy this season makes me think that we invited more pressure when N’didi was playing. He was far less comfortable on the ball and if was pressured I often thought he played the wrong ball or lost possession all together. I certainly don’t think he’s capable of beating the press like Mendy can do. He doesn’t show for possession off the Centre Backs as much as Mendy, which is why Cags and Evans spent so much time passing it between them last season. This often meant that Tielemans and Maddison were having to come very deep to receive the ball off the defenders
  22. I’m not sure how easily Ndidi fits back into this team. Mendy has been absolutely class and the way he plays makes other players better. He takes the ball off the back much more comfortably which allows Youri further up to press and arrive in the box later. The way Mendy can break the opposition press is brilliant too. I love ndidi and he is a world class cdm but we’re playing some of our best football and look so complete, Mendy has to take a lot of that credit.
  23. There’s pros and cons to take from that really. Still really lacking the final product from everybody on the pitch, nobody can finish or make that final pass. Thought Thomas looked poor today, JJ at RB was class but he also looked poor when he went to LB. Cags, Johnson and Benko all seemed solid enough at CB. Tiele was decent enough. Barnes was poor and Gray looked better. Tavares has some good and bad points but played well for an 18 y/o, KDH seemed good when he came on. Not sure why else to pull from the game.
  24. Would love to see us go for Milot Rasicha from Bremen. A winger that has the ability to win us games.
