  1. That settles it then, Musa on the LW and Under on the RW. Top four and CL here we come.😆
  2. The display was very disappointing considering Arsenal gave us a blueprint on how to play them, with the 1st goal. Ndidi & Youri press high up, win the ball, we get behind their defence and score. After that we inexplicably camped around our penalty area and gave Arsenal free rein over the pitch. Why did we revert to such negative tactics?Whatever the reason, we beat ourselves with our poor negative gameplan.
  3. We thought we're getting the Turkish Mahrez but ended up with the Turkish Musa.
  4. I don't think you can criticise Vardy's work ethic and determination, but his 1st touch, since his injury, has been extremely poor. Everytime the ball is played to him, his touch takes it a metre away. Maybe he'll find form when he becomes more match fit, but we definitely need to start planning for his eventual retirement.
  5. I think the mistake was actually made in the first leg. Prague are a well organised and defensively very well drilled team. With our away record, we needed to go all out to get an away goal and put them on the back foot. Even 1-1 first leg would've been better then 0-0, because they would've come here knowing they needed a goal. Playing them feels like playing the likes of Wolves and Everton. We were too meek first leg and that's cost us.
  6. I remember when wasyl elbowed Suarez in a friendly against Barcelona. Suarez gets up to square upto Marcin, realises who it is and walks off without a peep. 😁 And who can forget the Walsh vs Bull rivalry.
  7. I think you can never knock Vardy's work ethic and dedication, but in all honesty his 1st touch and finishing has been poor in recent weeks. Harvey's goal is a case in point when Vardy should have scored, but shot straight at the gk, luckily it came back to us. Against Liverpool he missed an absolute sitter. One of Vardy's greatest assets is his chances to goals ratio, and that really needs to improve from now to the end of the season.
  8. Exactly, 2nd half we just kept giving the ball away and then defending at the edge of our area. Terrible tactics, which against a better team would have definitely cost us.
  9. Barnes played like Messi the 1st half and Musa the 2nd.
  10. David Brooks. If Bournemouth don't get promoted, we could get a bargain. Either that or Daniel James.
  11. He's got a rep on here as a bit of a dullard, but his interview was pretty good by footballer standards. I think we all expected Grey to do what Barnes is doing now, but he just never did. I hope he has a successful career.
  12. Wow, can't believe she's 45 yrs old.
  13. Absolutely, Everton along with Wolves are the most negative football teams I've seen this season. Jose gets stuck at Spurs, but Ancelotti seems to get a free pass playing even more boring & defensive football. Definitely don't want to finish below them.
  14. Very poor, kept trying to play killer balls to Vardy, but only ending up passing to Liverpool. We had to absorb so much pressure because of it. Went through a magic spell after New Year, looks all over the place since.
  15. How good was that pass to Barnes for the third goal. Sublime footballer, just eats up ground and robs the ball with his long spindly legs.
  16. Colossus defensive performance from him. He was up against Salah and Trent, two of the most potent attackers in the PL, but still kept both quiet, whilst playing out of position.
  17. Thank God for Ndidi and Ricardo. Both have given a defensive masterclass.
  18. That's what irrates me the most. He was used as a LCB, something Fuchs can do well. Looked bad when it happened and now he's out for the season.
  19. Great stats, goal every 2 games, assist every 4 games. If he played regular football he'd get 15+ goals a season plus plenty of assists.
  20. I always thought Julian Joachim would become one of the finest players in the country, with a long international career. After a good start and decent PL career, he disappeared into obscurity.
  21. Played every minute in the PL. Why didn't Fuchs start especially in a back 3. The decision to play him in the least important competition could bite us in the backside.
  22. Hard to believe he's even more shit then he normally is.
  23. Gilmour's a gem of a player who fits in with the Rodgers style of football. It will be massive coup if we could get him in the summer.
  24. Wolves and Everton, two of the most over rated teams in the PL. They make Spurs look like Barca.
