  1. No further players will be back from injury this weekend to Rodgers post match. Can't see him starting Under so will probably play Ricardo further forward again: Schmeichel Castagne, Fofana, Soyuncu, Thomas Tielemans, Ndidi, Ricardo, Nacho, Albrighton, Vardy. Concern with Nacho in the no 10 role is this will end up more as a 4 4 2 leaving us exposed in midfield but limited options unless he goes with 2 DMs and Youri further forward, which isn't his best position.
  2. Safe to say that Under is done. When we switched to 4 1 4 1 he could've put Under on for Amartey and left Ricardo at right back. Instead he moved Ricardo to right wing and Amartey to right back.
  3. SIR IAN NACHO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! was playing well leading up to that goal
  4. hamaz fighting demons in his head. just needs to keep his head together
  5. 2-0 Nacho header and Amartey goalmouth scramble from a corner
  6. Back in full training yesterday after a month out according to Rodgers. Will be a gamble if he picks him The manager said: “We'll have a look at that, he trained with the group on Monday. It's just about weighing up the risk really. "He's obviously been out for a period of time with his hamstring so we'll assess it. He looked fantastic in training on Monday.
  7. + we have no mid week game leading up to the FA cup fixture followed by the international break. With a few players expected back over the next 2 weeks we will hopefully be in better shape by then.
  8. Not quire ready according to the Rodgers However, Rodgers thinks this week’s games will be too early for the Spaniard. “He (Perez) is out training,” Rodgers said. “I don’t think he’ll be available for the two games this week. “I saw him out on the grass with the medical team. He’s feeling good. That was his first introduction back out. “We’ll see how he is at the end of the week. Then maybe available for the game after Brighton (against Sheffield United).”
  9. Yes he looks like he's lost confidence down to the realisation that it's unlikely he'll be getting a permanent move here. Assuming he's unwanted by Roma it would be in his own interest to prove himself in the shop window as he'll be looking for another move in the summer.
  10. sounded like a few weeks from what Rodgers said and they needed to wait for the inflammation to die down first to gauge. Was a little vague to be honest
  11. Need a minimum of 7 points from the next 3 league games before the international break. Creativity and missing the goal contributions from Barnes and Madders is the big concern.
  12. Yep, I can't think of any high value players we could sell on that wouldn't really hurt us or be easy to replace. We'd do well to get 10-15 mill for the likes of Perez, Nacho, Mendy etc
  13. According to Rodgers in the post match interview it was an existing injury from knock he took in a game a few weeks ago
  14. no idea what injury that is a "bone has come off" "A bone in the knee has come off. He’d had niggles with it. He had a clash of knees in the game a few weeks ago so it has been irritable. Then there was a challenge on it today that made it worse. “It’s a bad one for him and a blow for us.”" https://www.leicestermercury.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/harvey-barnes-jonny-evans-jamie-5055647
  15. getting totally overrun in midfield with 2 up front but we dont have any midfield options on the bench other than DMs. Rodgers will have to come up with something inventive here to get back into the game
  16. Might be better putting Castagne against Pepe as a natural right footer will do better against him cutting inside
  17. with nacho playing as a second striker and not really tracking back we're getting overrun in midfield far too often.
  18. 6 changes made for arsenal taking several of their creative players out...
  19. Barnes and Thomas have got a small upgrade in stats from the winter update. Thinking of starting a new save to see if I can get them as the regular left side pairing for England
  20. Neil Lennon - bit of a guess that kids were named after John?
  21. Not really. The squad isn't strong enough to go deep in 2-3 competitions considering the injuries and congested fixture list. Champs League qualification would provide greater prize money, which could be used towards bolstering the squad further, renewing key player contracts etc to build a stronger squad, which can compete on all 3 fronts in the future - the drop of in match day revenue this season might be a factor in this. Whether people agree with it or not resting players last night is a sign the club (not just Rodgers) places greater priority on the league this season, while still in th
