We lost our record yesterday

Recommended Posts

We had scored in every Premiership game this season up until yesterday and so became the last team to lose that record even Man City, Chelsea and Liverpool etc had at least one blank game. What a pity we have been letting them in at the other end.

We’ve had 2 clean sheets in the last 2 games...

We've looked pretty good at the back recently.

Maguires ability to come out and create space has been a miss last two games

We had 22 shots and a lot more chances. It was one of our most prolific games in 50 years. The problem we had is that we are not efficient in front of goal.

 

Vardy has been Mr.Efficient for years. even with the incredible creative genius of Mahrez next to him he had very few chances but he seemed to score from 50% of them. This season he has had many more chances but either fluffed them before they even became shots with uncharacteristic poor control or he's missed his one on ones.

 

The Vardy of the last couple of years would have had 7 or 8 goals easily this season. He is going through a patch of poor form - I don't think it's any more than that - but we need him to re-find his form quickly.

 

Gray is looking better and better and for me is the most likely to score. We should be scoring more from corners with Maguire, Evans, Ndidi and Iborra - I am amazed at how we fail to hit the target so often from good headers. Iheanacho is still finding his feet/rhythm and although he has bags of potential he has been disappointing far too often. 

 

I think we should definitely sign a new attacker who can make an immediate difference in January. Okazaki is finished.

We missed Maddison yesterday, without him there is no creativity in the team and nothing to unlock a defense like Burnley's. We just kept lumping it into the box hoping Vardy would win a header against their 6 foot+ defenders.

We may have missed him but we had plenty of creativity and we unlocked their defence so many times.

 

We certainly didn't just lump it into the box for Vardy and I hate when our fans try to say that's the case.

 

We simply didn't put away gilt edged chances. And that includes the sitter that Vardy should have put away in his sleep.

Primarily the problem is poor finishing (especially Vardy's ropey form at present) but the crossing and passing in the final third just aren't up to scratch either. One in ten of Albrighton's crosses actually finds a colleague and the average is not much better from the other flank, while Ndidi struggles to complete even the most basic A to B pass under no pressure, let alone one that turns or splits a defence, and Mendy seldom tries anything creative. Our best passers are Maddison and Maguire and neither played yesterday.

Vardy is our only striker good enough, now he is going through a bad patch we don’t have anyone else to fill that void... had we got ourselves another quality striker we probably would be 3 or 4 points better off by now

We 'created' 22 shots & 12 corners.....it wasn't creativity that was missing.

We were far more creative without him and Ghezzal in yesterday, when Maddison comes back we need to get him involved from open play more.

If we are to persist with the slow build up, get it wide then back into the box, we need an andy Carroll type player.

Surprising enough, according to whoscored we won the most aerials 29 to 27.  

 

Not sure how accurate that site is mind.

A shot isn't necessarily a mark of creativity. It's the quality of chances being created.

 

Gray and Vardy should've both scored really.

Guess you only watch the last 30 mins. 

Ghezzal run our midfield for majority of the match, involve in every attacking movement we did during first half.

True but they were quality chances

Players missing shots they should have scored with is not indicative of a lack of creativity......quite the opposite.

I don't get the point in Mendy and Ndidi against sides like Burnley at home. Iborra would provide more creativity; Ndidi and Mendy are defensively-minded.

 

I thought Ghezzal was very good behind Vardy but isolated when he's out wide (again). I impressed with him first half, a lot.

 

Vardy has missed good chances in a lot of games this season but Iheanacho seems to struggle with confidence.

This sounds like the sort of record Spurs fans would get excited about...
