  1. I applaud the courageous self-assessment of your reading comprehension. Not many would admit that.
  2. People are too obsessed with youth. A bit more balance with some seasoned players who can actually contribute would be welcome imo, these young players need more help learning how to win. FFS Barcelona thinks he may be able to help them and some are turning their noses up. Be serious.
  3. Precisely the sort of signing(s) we need. Older, veteran players who still have considerable ability but have been replaced by up and comers to balance out our youth-heavy side. Would love to see us consistently looking at goal-scorers in their early 30s being pushed out of top sides by younger players, there is elite talent available periodically that we can snare in that age range that we simply cannot get at a younger age unless we get lucky AF with development.
  4. Prefer a striker who would challenge for Vardy's spot in a one striker formation. Competition all over the field, pls.
  5. Well that was stupid as f. Recruiting under Macia was seemingly terrific, feels like a major step backwards.
  6. Incredible if he means net spend. If we sell Maguire and Chilwell, that is a huge kitty and we don't need to replace Maguire, so we will prob spend big for Tiels or a comparable, a Chilwell replacement, a striker, and depending on whether the Maddison rumors are true, possibly even more players. I expect Rodgers will be after some young players from the Scottish Prem as well, could see us filling out the squad with a handful of young prospects.
  7. I hear you But to me, if the difference between European play or not winds up being a home loss to Cardiff, it feels a real opportunity muffed. 🤷
  8. On the one hand, kinda bummed we missed out on Europa by losing to crap sides. On the other, way to dwell on the negative you twit, get a grip, the outlook for the club is amazing. We go into the summer with tremendous momentum, and appear poised to challenge for the top-6 next season. We played well enough at times to be t-6, but our record against relegation squads pushed us out of that race. We need to sign Tiels, we need another striker, but even if we lose players like Maguire and Chilwell, we appear exceedingly well-positioned to absorb those losses without much decline in our play. We should be a club players want to be at, the team's spirit seems good, and we should be excited AF about our prospects. Now let's see about closing with 6 points. We've beaten both sides already, and Man City looks to be on fumes. If we can somehow get a goal up, their bungholes will clench tighter than a gnat's chuff.
  9. Yes, but they hardly parked the bus. They pushed forward hard at every opportunity, we had chances to counter down the sidelines but we didn't take them. We were too narrow, we repeatedly missed passes, often passing yards behind our attacking players to kill our own momentum. Meanwhile, Newcastle repeatedly dispossessed us by jumping the passing lanes and attacking Ndidi while covering his outlets, and Rodgers did nothing to offset their tactics. We simply beat our heads against their wall the first 70 minutes of the game until we finally became a threat to get wide. Staying so narrow was f'ing bizarre. Rodgers needs to answer for that stupidity.
  10. Was it Taco Thursdays last night in Leicester? We played like the only runs we could manage needed a wipe after. Granted, it was right that we fired Puel, but he always knew how to make in-game adjustments to get our players in position to flub excellent chances. Our players were wholly unprepared and looked lost out there. Say what you will about Puel, but we probably break a 3-game losing streak with a comfortable draw this evening if he's at the helm. It has long been said Rodgers doesn't have the tactical nous to be a top manager. Had hoped he'd developed that at Celtic, but this was witless. He sat and watched his side get destroyed for 70+ minutes as if he couldn't adjust the formation to get any width, or make any other changes to address our struggles on the pitch. People can complain about us allegedly not having any wide players, but if our wings and FBs are instructed not to position themselves to get wide or provide support out wide, it is an issue with tactics, not personnel. We did not even try to turn the corner on their defense for 70 minutes, the lack of corners tells the story of our curiously stubborn approach. But our players sucked too. Vardy has been poor all season, his recent goal scoring is hiding the fact that he needs 4-5 quality looks on goal now to bury one in the net. I know he's the talisman, but FFS we need competition for him this summer, it is just as important as signing Tiels, who gave us a bit of magic today that Vardy couldn't quite handle.
  11. This is seriously embarrassing. Rafael Benitez is teaching a masterclass, and Rodgers hasn't a clue how to counter it.
  12. Well-deserved, Newcastle is much the better side this evening, our passing is dreadfully indifferent, we cannot meet their energy. Clearly we thought this would be a walkover. I have been waiting to see BR make a move to fix this, I will say Puel for all his failings would've made a quality adjustment by now. Rodgers apparently hasn't a clue what to do yet.
  13. This team could certainly be challenging for a CL spot this season on talent. We are 17 points out of 3rd place. Sounds enormous, but go through our f'ing results and look at all the opportunities for easy points against relegation-fodder we squandered. If we can simply tighten that up, we can compete with teams like Man U, Chelsea, and Arsenal. We aren't that far away.
  14. We settled in after that incredible save by Schmichael, he had no business stopping Wilson's shot, exquisite reflexes. We should be excited for this performance, but the boys can still tighten things up, we missed quite a few terrific opportunities. Maddison in particular needs to stop taking so many touches when in front of goal, his hesitation when it comes to shooting is something the coaching staff is probably working on with him, but we are leaving goals on the table. Amazing to see us even on points with Wolves so quickly -- FFS, that last second goal BR's first match as manager cost us 7th. Of course, if they win the cup, 7th loses quite a bit of luster, though bragging rights over the also-rans would be nice, and would likely position us for a strong transfer window, so no doubt we'll prioritize it the way we should. Europa would be incredible, it is insane imagining how far ahead of Wolves we would likely be if BR had come a couple months earlier. Not that I wasn't a Puel-in, I was, but still, on talent this team should be like 15-20 points ahead of the 8th place team. 10 points minimum.
  15. We have a lot of good players, just not many who can create goal scoring opportunities out of nothing like Tielemans can.
