  1. Schmeichel Castagne - Fofana - Söyüncü - Fuchs Ünder - Ndidi - Tielemans - Albrighton Iheanacho - Vardy Wonder if Rodgers will be tempted to mix it up. Flat 4-4-2, shades of 15/16 with the Fuchs/ Albrighton combo on the left and a mercurial left footer on the right. Nachoman linking play and Vardy playing on the shoulder. Also gets 3 outfield immortals on the pitch when we desperately need a bit of leadership and square pegs in square holes and all that. That line up could also switch to a back 3 with Fuchs dropping in and Marc and Castagne p
  2. On the positives a bust up suggests he’s still got some fight. Think he’s probably frustrated with himself as much as anything at the minute. He has been fantastic in parts this season, but I do worry his hip injury is a big issue that won’t go away. Just doesn’t look comfortable and I think the fact he’s been taken off corners etc is a worrying sign. Maybe he’s been told he’s not playing Tuesday and isn’t happy with the decision. Give him a week off and hopefully he’ll come out fighting in the final to redeem himself. Seems the type of player who loves the biggest stage. also wouldn

    I think the point for Soumaré and Gosens is they would both likely get Champions league next season were they to stay with their current clubs. So understandable for them to move to us this summer they would want to still have the chance to play in the Champions league. Makes us getting there even more important otherwise we won’t be able to get this quality of signing over the line.
  4. My concern with dropping Vardy is it leaves us with zero pace on the counter. Ie. The team suggestions with a front 4 combination of: Iheanacho, Praet, Perez, Maddison, and Albrighton. Personally I believe Nachoman would be okay up top on his own, if there was pace either side ie. Barnes and Ünders replacement hopefully. But with Marc and Perez either side there would be no one able to stretch them. actually not looking forward to the prospect of playing the Utd’s ressies. If they line up with James and Greenwood and Cavani up top that’s still a pretty fearsome front 3 and could be de
  5. I imagine Man Utd will start something like the below. Still a pretty decent side but should be able to get at that back 4. De Gea Williams - Bailly - Lindelof - Telles McTominey - Matic Greenwood - Van der Beek - James Cavani
  6. I’m just glad we got 2 goals back. Could come down to goal différence now and when we were 4-0 down I feared the worst. Maybe playing the big guns will suit us, as we’ve struggled to break teams down recently and looked i credibly vulnerable on the counter ie. palace, West Ham, Newcastle to name a few. We’d seemingly decided that we needed 9pts+ from our last 4 and then next to nothing from the next 3. But it works out the same if we can pick up the points in the next couple now that we’ve dropped some in the last 2. It’s still in our hands and the teams around us won’t all
  7. Really is a battle for worst performer this week. Kasper - 5 - couple of good saves should’ve dealt with crosses better. Castagne - 4 - wasted at CB and should’ve done better when he assisted Wilson. Fofana - 4 - all over the place defensively, looked lost and kept stepping up. Soyuncu - 3 - woeful. His touch his passing his positioning all of it. Ricardo - 4 - Just doesn’t look up to it at the minute. A passenger. Tielemans - 5 - not great but not as bad as some of the others. As in didn’t do anything awful so gets a 5. Ndidi - 3 - one of his worst games
  8. Not even sure how we fix that mess. Castagne is wasted as a CB or on the left so much start on the right. We don’t look as balanced with Albrighton or Ricardo on the left, so Thomas starts. Assuming Evans is out Fuchs needs to come in to offer some experience at the back, and more balance as a natural left footer. Fofana can move back to the right hand side looked lost in the middle kept stepping up and getting lost. Maddison has to be benched, Perez injected something when he came on and Maddison has looked poor for weeks. Was tempted to bring Mendy in for Ndidi as well who had as p
  9. Absolute minging performance. As good as Söyüncü and Fofana are, they looked like a couple of school boys without evans alongside them. Fofana was rushing forwards and looked lost half the time and Söyüncü had an absolute shocker, his touch his passes all of it. Ndidi and Maddison another 2 with shockers. The amount of unforced errors from us was grim to watch. Very worrying the similarities between Söyüncü in particular and the squad mentality in general to this time last year. Heads gone.
  10. Happy with that. Rodgers showing a lot of faith in Maddison despite some pretty average performances in his last few. Hopefully he’s just getting back up to speed and needs to start delivering again soon. Glad to see Ricardo back not sure who will play on the right/ left but hopefully a couple of weeks rest will have done him wonders.

    Hahah ffs *Wilf and Youri

    Only 1 year left on his contract surely won’t be that much? Perfect replacement for Hamza in the squad IMO. Combo between Wilf and Youri so could in theory cover for both and provides a different option.
  13. Think Sowah can be that option for us. Left footed, can play on the right, left or through the middle and won’t cost us anything perfect squad player option.

    Would love that if true. Thought Dembélé was one of the most complete and underrated midfielders in the league. A cross between Tielemans and Doucouré almost. Would be a great understudy to both Youri and Wilf in the 2 holding rôles.
  15. Perez —> Maddison Ricardo —> Thomas Building towards the cup final think the formation should stay. Fofana-Evans-Soyuncu will only get better as a partnership by playing together. Perez for Maddison to manage minutes and Maddison looked poor yesterday. I also think for the final we are most likely to want to start Ricardo and Castagne as the wingbacks. Therefore Ricardo needs minutes to re-find his form & fitness, therefore comes in for Thomas for me on the left, and Castagne has to stay on the right based on recent performances.
