  1. Ndidi played well at CB. Definitely better than a surprisingly shaky Amartey and Soyuncu who kept slipping all over the joint and kept kicking it to the opposition or out of touch. cags is obviously top-notch, but that was subpar performance on the night.
  2. LOL! Now, just about seen it all on FT... He got beat, got dribbled. It happens to everyone occasionally, but putting the blame on him or calling it "schoolboy defending" takes the cake. He did NOT dive in. On the contrary, he stayed on his feet and tried to tackle the player but got beat. The blame belongs entirely to Hamza who put him in that position at all. Next you would be blaming Kasper for "diving in" and not saving the shot.
  3. The conundrum is that, even when Vardy is playing crap, he still SIGNIFICANTLY affects play. Look at our goal, and ask where Tarkowski was. As play develops, Vardy suddenly drops deep to pick up the ball and Tarkowski immediately follows, leaving the middle of the defense wide open for Nacho to sneak in. None of our other forwards would have had the same effect on their defensive shape. But of course unless he starts scoring again, that will change.
  4. I know Vardy did not play at all tonight, but the conundrum with excluding him is that he still SIGNIFICANTLY affects play. Look at our goal, and ask where Tarkowski was. As play develops, Vardy drops deep and Tarkowski follows, leaving the middle wide open for Nacho.
  5. Good point Personally, I would give Ünder a run, but clearly Brendan doesn’t seem to rate him.
  6. Not a fan of playing Ricardo further up, in any case. He's decent enough, but it's not his best position. Would rather see Albrighton there, and Ricardo back at RB.
  7. First half Nacho held it up pretty well. First part of second half the ball hardly got out of our half, and the front 2 were starved until we switched formation.
  8. The problem with our playing a back 3 is that we actually don't seem to use the wingbacks well. So many times in the first-half tonight Castagne was wide open and free out on the left (and this was after his run and cross for Hamza's chance), but was simply ignored.
  9. Kasper Ricardo Fofana Soyuncu Castagne Ndidi Tielemans Under Iheanacho Albrighton Vardy
  10. Ironically, I didn't want Under to be subbed-in on tonight. It seems it's the only situation he gets to see any action, and he invariably ends up trying to force play.
  11. I think the ball has to get to you first before you can hold it up... ask Vardy Nonetheless, we played much better after the subs, but that's essentially because we also changed formation.
  12. Think it's bye-bye to Under. Ironically, didn't want him to come on tonight, as it seems it's the only situation he gets to see any action and he invariably ends up trying to force play.
  13. We were not a better team because Iheanacho was taken off. We were much better once we switched to a Back 4, as we have been all season.
  14. Twice in particular he should have laid it off square to Tielemans, but overall still a solid performance tonight.
