Worrying number of posts complaining about the ref and oblivious to their own issues 

Bluemoon has become conspiracy theorist central since Liverpool got better than them.

The Times

“Even when he felt his right adductor tighten, Jamie Vardy did not want to leave the field. He was having too much fun scything his way through Manchester City's porous defence, winning penalties and plundering a hat-trick,” wrote Henry Winter.

“He was relishing how Brendan Rodgers's 5-4-1 game plan suckered Pep Guardiola's side, drawing them in and punishing them on the counter. Vardy eventually retreated to the stands, soon holding a bag of ice to his right groin. He'd already iced City.

“His departure, while reluctant, was a sensible precaution. He was loving the impact of Timothy Castagne, one of the signings of the season at £25 million from Atalanta, raiding down the right, and setting up Vardy for one of his finest goals, an outrageous flick.

 

The Telegraph
“For Leicester it is now three wins from three league games, their best ever start to a league campaign, as they went to the top of the table but this was by far their most impressive performance and not least because they fell behind and, for 20 minutes, looked like they were going to be overwhelmed,” wrote Jason Burt.

“Instead Vardy scored two penalties which sandwiched a quite sumptuous goal that had given Leicester the lead. James Maddison, coming off the bench, claimed a fine strike and the rout was completed by the sublime Youri Tielemans with another spot-kick once Vardy had already been substituted.

“Vardy’s two penalties were taken with aplomb – one high to Ederson’s right, the other low to the goalkeeper’s left – after he had earned them both with his intelligent running which exploited the woeful vulnerability of City’s defence with new £41 million signing Nathan Ake partnership Garcia and both full-backs, Kyle Walker and Benjamin Mendy, appearing liabilities.”

 

The Daily Mail
“Credit to Leicester, though, who arrived with a gameplan and stuck to it, even when Riyad Mahrez’s goal inside four minutes appeared to change the menu. A lesser team, maybe a lesser coach, might have panicked at that point,” wrote Martin Samuel.

“To his credit, Brendan Rodgers remained calm and kept to his strategy. He has a gameplan against City, and it has served him well to here, albeit in a limited fashion.

“Coming into this game, he had never taken a point off them as Leicester manager, but he had been close. It took a wonder goal from Vincent Kompany to win here in 2019, Leicester took the lead before losing the following season, and only a goal from Gabriel Jesus on 80 minutes separated them the third time Rodgers’ Leicester and Guardiola met last December.”

 

The Guardian
“This was a scintillating exhibition of why Jamie Vardy is so dangerous,” wrote Jamie Jackson.

“His was a hat-trick that made Manchester City appear half-paced and meant Leicester handed their hosts a defeat in their opening top-flight home league game of the season for the first time in 31 years.

“Vardy’s treble – scoring penalties in the 37th and 58th minutes plus a sweet backheeled finish in-between – meant that before the hour the Foxes were cruising, a memorable win completed by James Maddison’s 20-yard curler and Youri Tielemans’s penalty, the last coming after Vardy had been replaced. The victory takes Leicester top of the table.

Once again triggered Chelsea fans in the comments.

 

 

But seriously, Drogba was a great striker but not prolific  I think he scored 20 league goals once in his Chelsea career. He did also have much better players players around him than Vardy did.

There's a genuine case that Vardy is a better player, though iirc Drogba didn't take penalties. Of his 100+ goals I bet about half a dozen were from the spot.

 

These tweets are just designed to bait people anyway.

606 with those two is no better than Adrian Durham.

 

Yeah the similarity between Savage/Sutton and someone like Roy Keane is that that are all controversial.

 

The difference between Savage/Sutton and Keane is that Keane's thoughts usually come from uncomfortable truths with intelligent logic behind them, bit like a verbal unpopular opinions you hold thread. Most of the time he gets it right but he does get it wrong the odd time.

 

Savage/Sutton however just spout any controversial shite they can think of to get a reaction and to keep themselves in work, which doesnt promote constructive debate at all. Not sure if they even believe what they are saying themselves.

It’s impossible to listen to Sutton and Savage on 606 now. It’s just a competition of my opinion is better than yours and I can shout louder than you, let’s try and make each other look stupid, it isn’t enjoyable radio in any way shape or form and it’s exhausting. Ian Wright and Kelly Cates on a Sunday used to be good but it looks like those two arseholes have been given both weekend slots now.

James Richardson wrapped up the City vs Manchester Sky Blues section on Monday's Totally Football Show by saying

 

"Well there you go, Leicester... You've had your biggest win in ages, but you made the mistake of doing it against a big-six side, so we talked about them instead." 

 

Refreshing honesty for a change.

Ha! Love James Richardson and that show in general. Way more balanced and fun to listen to.

It was preferable to the previous week, where we were dismissed with the briefest backhanded compliment (by one of the other presenters) about BR wanting us to be Man City-lite or some such, and just basically waving us away as an anomaly. These people never learn, do they?
