I have read it all, but you made mention of HATE. Criticism and hate two totally different things. Maybe you could expand further after the game.

Think he needs replacing in the starting 11. 1 goal in 20 starts is not good enough. He's got 5 assists which is a reasonable return for 20 starts, but its purely his goals that are letting us down. I think his lack of pace too is a hindrance, how many times has he ran past his man to receive a through ball or dribbled past his man? Rodgers knows we need a winger, we need to get one in this week.

Get behind Barnes.  Get behind Chilwell.  Get behind Gray.  They are Leicester players.  I hope they keep being Leicester players because if they are they are performing well enough to get picked by Rodgers.

 

Oh, get behind Rogers too.

How about getting behind Rachel?

He is so poor at the moment & is contributing nothing to the team. His confidence is obviously gone & he needs taking out of the team for his long term good. 

We have seen on fleeting occasions this season what he is capable of & hopefully will come good in the future.

I think both him & Perez have been the weak links all season (although I do think Perez is a decent player, but not a winger) & although I am no great fan of either player I would prefer Gray & Albrighton to be playing if we persist with the present system.

Needs a couple weeks out of the squad. Talented yes but so out of form and confidence that we're completely carrying him.

We’ve been carrying him and quite a few for some time I’d say

Rodgers needs to have a serious look at our left side. Barnes and Chilwell just aren't helping each other and it is being targeted weekly.

As the posters above me said, we just can't afford to carry passengers. Yet we've been doing that for weeks. I understand that managers get attached to their favourite players but picking Barnes for the starting 11 when his confidence is shot and he so obviously struggles will make matters even worse for him and the team.

 

The same goes for every out of form player, Chilwell, Perez, or anyone else (like Tielers recently) who's having a dip. From the start of the season we were able to carry 1 or 2 'dippers', namely Barnes and Perez, because the other players played well. Now that some of the others aren't playing well anymore, we have to make sacrifices and bench those who are dragging the team down the most (and who can be benched without losing the spine of the team).

Our best player today, scored, won the pen and looked the most threatening

Typical, has an absolute blinder and is let down by the rest of them. Aaah well, just hope he can follow this up as he was superb today.

he looked absolutely terrified in the second half. i think i would’ve genuinely swapped wings just to get him away from our away fans. he won a throw in at one stage and instead of offering an option he just sprinted as far away from our fans all calling him a cu nt for getting tackled. 

 

his goal was great. the move for the pen was great. he still looks like he could do so much more though, if he wasn’t so scared of the ball, the defence and everyone watching.

I like him and I’m glad he got a goal but he really should be the 4th choice winger for a side in our position. Play the cup games, good option off the bench. Asking him to play week in week out seems to be almost having a negative impact overall and his confidence drains. 
 

But as it is he is still sort of the best option we have if we play with wingers.

Great to see him running at players. He's brilliant at it but seems adverse to doing it a lot of the time! 

 

His hold up play on the other hand...!!!

The point made is a pretty accurate one though.

 

A side 3rd in the Premier League should not be reliant on a player who has spend 1 year in League 1 and half a season in the Championship.

As well as Daniel James has done at Manchester United this season, the point has been made there too. 

 

My concern is that we have not learnt from Demarai Gray.

Overplaying youngsters, who are low on confidence and offering no end product, is not beneficial long term.

He was excellent today, but his performances of late have been evidently low on confidence and he has needed a break.

 

Look how long it has taken Rashford to maintain any consistent form.

Again, a result of too much pressure put on a player because his performances when first breaking into the squad were promising......But the reality is that he's not of the quality yet where his performances are consistently good enough.

 

Unfortunately, in a sense, Albrighton offers less goal threat than Kasper, so Barnes won't be getting a rest any time soon unless we change the system.

Fantastic goal, brilliant turn in the box for a peno in an away game at his age and some of our bellend fans moan about him.

Had a much better game today but still below the level a top 6 club should consider. For his own good we should aim to try and move him on for a reasonable number.
