  1. Not really. You just have to show you're a good player until you have the luxury of the side bring built around you. People used to make the same argument about Backford - that he only appeared to be shit because we didn't build the side around him instead of Nugent and put the ball on a plate for him. But in truth, Beckford just wasn't very good and Nugent was. Ihaesnacho is lucky to have the subdued role he has and is often very lucky to be picked ahead of Okazaki based on what we've seen. No catch-22 about it, his position on the pitch doesn't ignore his dreadful first touch,, awful pressing ability or poor ability and lack of footballing intelligence to find space - if he shows more of that, then people will trust to build a team round him.
  2. He needs to show he's good enough to build the side round him though and he's never done anything approaching that.

    Nah. Musa was our worst ever signing. Silva is up there though.

    Am I the only person who just can't get this video to run? Does anyone have an actual link to the page where the video was originally posted?

    No Vardy No party

    He's a once-in-a-lifetime player at a club like ours, like Shearer at Newcastle or Le Tissier at Southampton. You can't expect us to ever be as good without him in the side. Sadly he's probably only got a season or two left until age starts catching up with him. So we should make the most of watching him as fans while he's here.
  7. I've said it before and I'll say it again but the Kante comparisons need to stop. Kante is the best defensive midfielder in the world and Ndidi will never be that. A better compwrison for Ndidi is Robbie Savage, not Kante. (And I mean that very positively before anyone says it). Savage was excellent for us at winning the ball back and giving it to better players in Izzet and Lennon who created. We need a more creative player to play alongside him in the middle if anything.

    Absolutely outstanding today. Every time he played a ball over the top we looked like scoring.

    Ricardo Pereira

    Albrighton playing the last few games with him has definitely improved him defensively and allowed him a lot more protection than when Gray/Maddison were being played on the right. That said, he's definitely improving a lot and growing on me a lot. Felt like he cost us a goal a game in the first 5 or 6 games, but he's undoubtably exciting going forward. Just hope that his early performances were a case of teething pains or a lack of support from players in front of him and he continues as he has the last few games.

    Evans has been such a shit signing. We need to evolve from Morgan so we sign someone who is even more past-it and even worse.

    I'm totally stumped then. I've just gone down our squad list and can't for the life of me work it out.

    Brighton Pre Match

    Ihaenacho - 32 games, 4 goals. Strange agument to make against Okazaki basing it purely on goals when his record is better than Nacho's.
