Funny how the pundits seem to miss these when talking about our good business. Tbf every club will do good and bad business and it's the risk we take.

 

But perez is a fairly known quantity. Just been so pi$$ poor.

Such an odd out of the blue signing, and for that amount of money, bit like rachid the winger that couldn't beat a man, I remember reading people on here saying he was rubbish, same with Musa.

He’s decent backup for Maddison and we need a decent backup for Maddison. It’s not really his fault

that we have failed to sign a decent backup for Vardy.

Iheanacho also played well in that role towards the end of last season when Maddison was injured.

 

To be honest I think Barnes is presently the best option to cover for Vardy.

Yes, that's why he tops that list of flops for me.  He was very much a known quantity at Newcastle and an entirely bizarre choice imo.  Not his fault, he didn't buy himself and he didn't set the price but it is one we got very, very wrong and there was no excuse for it.  He is pretty much the same player here that he was at Newcastle just without the goals.  

 

I also think that his fee coupled with the suspicion that he was Rodgers' pick means that we suffered twice because we have persisted with him to the detriment of the team when his race should have been run here.

 

 At least the other's on that list came from foreign leagues so it is more difficult to have known whether they would have made it in the Premier League.

Thoroughly agree. I'd say on tuesday I'd go with;

 

Schmeichel/Fofana/Soyuncu/Evans/JJ/Ricky/Mendy/Tielemans/Maddison/Under/Barnes.

 

I wouldn't even go with a recognised striker as I think with that formation any of the wingers and Tielemans and Maddison are capable of scoring and also transitioning in general play than say Perez. I say that as I thought perez actually got in the way of the attacking players at times today and broke play down. One other thing is how to stretch the pitch with no recognised forward  so I'd prefer the back 3 to sit a little deeper to give the midfield more room to catch up with the wingers in play in the final 3rd. 

I like it, but what do you say to nacho and Perez? You're basically telling them neither are good enough to play, I just wonder how you manage that?

I think it's a bit harsh to criticise Ayoze, I don't think it's his fault he's been asked to play where he is, and it's not as if he's not trying. 

 

What I find baffling is that Brendan is still going with it when it's obvious it's not working. He has axed Nacho for not being a lot worse, if being worse at all.

 

it's all quite confusing.

I just think give nacho the chance on Wednesday. If you're brendan tell him play well against Fulham and the spot is yours for the next few games and you'll have more involvement in the Premier league and start the Cup matches, give him a goal and I'm sure he'll perform well. He's by far our best option imo. 

I think half the trouble with Nacho (beyond the is he even good enough to play at this level debate), was that unlike Perez, he wasn't a "Brendan signing". Not sure if that is a hindrance here for him as much as Vardy's on going form in all of Nacho's time here or not but I'd imagine it doesn't help his cause as regards starting games, whereas Perez seems to get played and starts more regularly - even when Vardy is fit and not injured on the sidelines...

The manager took off Castagna today because he needed Ricky to excel in that position and Castagna wasnt. Going by that analogy I'd say BR would manage that pretty easily.

Yeah it could be as simple as that.

 

Easier to drop a big money signing you didn't sign, that's probably why Slimani has been axed so many times by multiple managers despite costing a bomb.

 

Nacho seems to have sealed his fate with that penalty miss, it looks like it's the straw that broke the camel's back maybe.

What is his preferred position? He is ineffective outwide and non existent as the main striker. One really good game in every 10 just does not cut it. 

He takes up some good positions and his movement can be good but he is either let down by a woeful first touch and terrible balance or he just hasn't got the pace to get away from anyone.

I'm not Nachos biggest fan but last season he looked good, Rodgers was getting a tune out of him. Seems weird that he should be cast aside when we could most use him.

So he was in our top 6 or 7 players? 

He was in our top 5 best players. I would say only Tielemans, Schmeichel, Albrighton and Barnes were better.

Perez was ok in the first half, but it was bizzare not to have more runners beyond him. Barnes was causing Leeds trouble on one side, we needed the equivalent on the other side.

Sad state of affairs

Despite that, we are competing with the Top 3-6....

The Recruitment Team are just Not backing Rodgers by finding any quality incoming..also it may not be their fault in these awkward times.

Too many fans acting as if there isnt a Problem outside in the big wide world, rebounding also around football....Bit

 

What can a manager so when both Nacho & Perez have received Good ball then fluffed their lines. He has to to give Player A/B decent runs,so far only

2-3 games with Perez, in this position...

No manager sees it, like the fans, and no fan sees the worries like the other...Bit

So far we have a mixture of fans Posting they prefer, to See Nacho,Barnes,Under, Uncle Joe Cobbly at CF, or false 9.

Then the super know alls, tells us obviously..Rodgers has to sort it out....

Give Amartey a chance, that's how shameful we are.
