Have to agree with that, sort of put me in mind of Puel trying things that the Team had little or no understanding of...which is why I'm still not fully convinced about Rodgers ability to get the best out of the senior players we still have.

That's what preseason and friendlies are for to be fair. It did lack cohesion and we can't read much into preseason games.

Did it?

 

I'd argue only one of them improved in Vardy, partly due to the press and us winning the ball higher up... but also having Tielemans slipping through balls left right and centre.

 

Morgan barely played and Albrighton was out injured :D

Evans was our best defender for the last quarter of the season, prior to that he was in and out the team. Vardy it was night and day, Morgan in the games he did play was superb. Turned in to a goal machine lol

 

Albrighton i'm being a bit subjective on, but since his return from injury and his form in pre-season he seems to really have bought in to what Rodgers wants from his midfielders. I'm certainly not concerned about Rodgers ability to work with senior players, that was Puel's issue and one he has admitted himself in the past.

Evans, Albrighton, Vardy and Morgan's form all improved drastically under Rodgers?

I'll give you Albrighton, but I saw no improvement in the others in his "experiment" at Stoke

But you can surely see the night and day improvement in Vardy last season, as well as him immediately lavishing confidence and praise in to Morgan which got 2 match winning performances. Both he and at times Evans seemed unsure of their role in the long term future of the team. If Rodgers persists with this diamond at it doesn't work then i'll be bemused of course, but it is way too early to have concerns?

I'm basing my comments on the one Stoke match, which is how a season works, 1 game at a time. We've all seen successive managers have been slated  time after time despite the great (but short) spells we enjoyed under each. I'm still waiting to see after few months of this season, and sincerely hope that we aren't calling for a new manager again come the new year.

Concerns worry expectations. Sitting here laughing to myself after what I've witnessed in Rodgers career as a manager. Preseason is experimentation.

Our game/style and structures of play coming together. We won't hit our peak in our first match. Enjoy watching it build into ferocious tiger I predict it will become.

I'll enjoy watching all of you hem, haw and fret. But not as much as when you watch the bird in full flight. Majestic.

I'm starting to get a bit nervous. 

 

Don't get me wrong, I'm absolutely positive we are stoking a couple of fires but being so close to the window closing and being (in my opinion) two players short of an extremely exciting team it's getting frustrating how good we are at keeping transfers quiet until the last minute. 

 

If the window was to close now, I would be fairly happy I suppose. No doubt we have a squad capable of beating last years position but like I said, we are so close to a genuine top six squad I just wan't to log on and see something exciting..... I'm so impatient.

Feel exactly the same way. Looking forward to seeing if @StriderHiryu can possibly top or equal his last creative outburst.

I've never followed a club that had such an iron door policy when it came to Transfers. Maybe that's what makes them so special.

Praet and Ziyech would send me over the top................... I just can't help myself. :frusty:

Ziyech and McGregor would be my ideal way of stopping of our business.
