  1. Reminds me of a more attacking Albrighton He is a two-way player, works very hard defensively, but lacks the ability to consistently create goals for himself or others, though he can finish if he is set up. A good player on the old Leicester sides, but he isn't the sort of qualitee we need on the right. Wouldn't mind seeing us add a RB and move Pereira to RW at times, that may go a long way to improving goal-scoring on that side.
  2. Maybe mix in some water between your drinks?
  3. We've won 4 of 20 matches since Jan 2 (5-6-10 in the Prem in 2020 overall). We were held to 0 or 1 goal in 18 of our last 22 games. We never found our consistency after we were thrashed by Liverpool and Man City in December by an aggregate 7-1. The larger point is that our scoring output in 5 games made us look far more formidable than we were. We won games 5-0, 9-0, 3-0, 4-0, 4-1 against poor sides. Outside of those, we scored 43, conceded 41. That's pedestrian. We run it up against the sad sacks and that disguised our flaws. We need scoring, and featuri
  4. Injuries were too much. We needed to beef up our scoring in the winter window. Ricardo + a real scorer instead of Perez would've been a nightmare and would've given us a real threat all over the pitch. Vardy is the wrong fit for this system. Need to have a good think about that. We are always a man down in the build-up bc he participates so infrequently. We aren't an exclusively counter-attacking team anymore. Our hot streak was terrific, but that wasn't the real Leicester. Neither was this though. Would've loved to see Ricardo and Maddison on the field today. Losing a
  5. Our attacking numbers are appalling. We've scored 1 goal or fewer in 12 of our last 15 games overall. We've been held scoreless 5 of the last 8 overall, including our last 2 home games. Vardy hasn't scored in 9 of the last 10 games. If he isn't scoring goals, he hurts us because he doesn't participate in the build-up. I would give Perez a look up top. If you ignore the one outlier vs Villa, we've scored 2 goals the last 7. Obv the result vs AV counts but it masks a very clear trend. What happened to Rodgers teams improving as the season wore
  6. If we score a goal it will because we get Barnes involved, mark my words. He is the only player on the pitch who can make something happen with the ball at his feet. The athleticism differential on the field is noticeable. Chelsea's players are brighter, sharper, more physical and quick. We may be a better overall team, but we need to improve the athleticism and creativity up front.
  7. So we are playing for a draw now?
  8. Can I just ask, is there something schematic with what Rodgers wants where we deliberately do not quickly return passes? What I mean is, say we are passing around the opponent's box, Praet passes to Justin on the right, then Justin tidily sends an immediate pass back to Praet. Remedial, I know, but BC we never do it, it means that defenses can overcommit to our attackers without fear of being caught out. To my thinking, it makes our players' lives more difficult. I was taught to do this as a youth to force defenders to give us more room and to partially neutralize team
  9. His passing accuracy is fuching woeful as well.
  10. That is a bit crazy, but only bc JJ doesn't have the experience against a team like MC. Would've loved to see that today vs. Wolves though. And if it is easier to add a RB or get JJ up to speed, and if Ricardo is here next season, that works for me.
  11. Sure, but to play it for us against Man City... especially after what they did when it was Wilf at DM... I have seen no indication Praet is on Wilf's level at DM, despite his experience.
  12. Yeah, we may well be looking at Praet. Eek.
