    Arsenal Post Match

    From 35 mins in at 0-1 the result looked inevitable. Arsenal started fizzing it in to Lacazette much earlier, getting runners off him and took Ndidi out of the equation who had been brilliant breaking play up first 30. After then i don't think we managed to disrupt any of their attacks. Start of the 2nd half the play got too frenetic, we couldn't get a foot on the ball to slow the tempo, (wilf and Mendy simply can't control the tempo in situations like that) nor could we spin it in behind their back 4 to turn them and relieve some pressure as Vardy barely broke above a jog all night. They pushed right up, pressed high, forced mistakes and then had the quality with their interplay to make us look silly time and again. Plenty of teams will come a cropper at Arsenal, but I came away worried at the attitude after going behind (we have a soft centre which could easily snowball into a poor run if we lose confidence). Today also laid bare the lack of genuine quality options on the bench to even attempt to turn the tide of a game.

    Except it wasn't really that. Vardy was playing as an old fashioned inside left (until Maddison was substituted) and same with Nacho on the other side.

    Arsenal away next😳

    Just don't think we are the type of team to give Arsenal trouble, we don't mix it enough physically. Expect us to play ok but lose 2 or 3-1.
  4. Great play by Lookman. He really should get more game time.
  5. Everton fans have got to be about the whiniest in the league. Any slight error by a player results in a collective moan.

    Yarde does needs to step up now, his opposition to this point has been beyond useless. Even a fight against British gate keeper like a Buglioni would be an improvement, at least we are likely to see if he can take a shot. If he does turn out to be half decent there are some very good potential domestic scraps at LHW, possibly for a world title if Buatsi turns out to be as good as I think he is. Not forgetting Callum Johnson too.

    Leonardo Ulloa - Gone to C.F. Pachuca

    Its the mexican equivalent of a league cup game at home to a crappy championship side. Pachuca average about 25k in the league.

    Kodi. Set ups,boxes and add ons.

    From what I've seen its got a bit better again recently. Certainly improved from where it was at a few months ago in the aftermath of the raid.

    Newcastle 0 - 2 Leicester

    Maguire and Ndidi with their best displays of the season. Amartey and Mendy good again. Won't have a more comfortable game all season.

    Boxing

    Groves should have just kept boxing. Rushed in with the right hand and paid the price. Smith isn't a top drawer boxer, but carries big power at the weight.

    Mendy

    Ok. I can rephrase to, his mediocre distribution for a midfielder has certainly not got better. Source - my eyes rather than out of context pass success percentage statistics. He has sloppily played us into trouble on numerous occasions already this season. He has lots and lots of admirable qualities aside from that.

    Mendy

    We would benefit massively if either Ndidi or Mendy could break the lines with their passing and get the ball into Maddison quicker and in more dangerous areas before a defence can set itself. Ndidi is plumbing new depths with his distribution this season and whilst Mendy is neat and tidy, we would be a more dangerous proposition if one of them (probably Mendy) could be a bit more progressive on occasion.
