He had a decent game on Tuesday. They all did. We didn’t lose because Ben Chilwell hugged Jack Grealish in the tunnel beforehand.
We lost because sometimes in football, you lose. Sometimes in football, the loss happens in an incredibly painful way.
This is how it was, how it is and how it will always be. Also what hasn’t changed is football fans losing their shit over fvck all. We’re all guilty of it, including myself.
Best thing to do when it’s pointed out to you is to just sigh, say fair enough and look forward to the next game. Doubling down and trying to rationalise an opinion that we weren’t ‘in the zone’ because some mates were hugging each other before a game is just bollocks.
We played well. We created chances that were denied by heroics and we also wasted quite a lot of opportunities too. Tough shit.
Ben Chilwell is the best English left back by far. He’s come up through the youth ranks and cemented a place in our first team. A team that currently sits third in the Premier League. He does have off games as all players do, but for people to try and make out that he hasn’t got the talent that he does have is bloody ridiculous and hugely disappointing.
In terms of young talent this Leicester team is by far the best we’ve probably ever seen and are ever likely to see.
The hardest times as a supporter is to get behind the lads when the chips are down. This isn’t even one of those times! The chips are still very much up!!
I understand people are frustrated, we all are. We all wanted to go to Wembley, we all wanted to win a cup but it isn’t happening (at least not in the league cup), but we can secure Champions League qualification but we’re not going to do it if we are getting on the players backs and stripping away their confidence bit by bit.
Sort it the fvck out.
