  1. This is of course only supposition, but I wonder if Brendan doesn't trust Under to do the defensive work required.


    In recent weeks, I've noticed the odd - what I took to be - slightly pointed comment in interviews with BR & others. Maddison - "if you don't run, you don't play in a Brendan Rodgers team". Effusive praise from BR about Albrighton's tactical awareness and utter commitment to the team cause. That sort of thing. Given how cohesive we are looking as a unit at the moment, I doubt Brendan wants to put anyone in who isn't 100% in sync with the requirements.


    I don't want to cast aspersions on Under's playing style as he's clearly a talent and I've no reason to believe he has a bad attitude - it can often take players a while to adapt to new styles of play, and maybe BR and co are just ensuring that message is hammered home before they feel they can trust him.


    He's also had a knock and, as with others coming back from injury, our fine performances give us the luxury of not having to chuck him in.

    Same here haha. 


    I just completely accept a goal kick is coming as soon as he goes for goal. That goal he scored in his first few games against Stoke was an outright lie. I don't acknowledge it is the same footballer lol


    I think we love it because subconsciously we know if he could shoot he wouldn't play for us.


    Didn't he get one early on against Derby too?


    You know one day he'll ping one in top bins again and my top will be off quicker than you can say yes ndidi
