Caglar Soyuncu emerges as new cult hero at Leicester City

Recommended Posts

The LCFC social media crew is shamelessly putting him in about half the posts they add to get that Turkish metrics bump - it's not tiresome yet, but its wholly transparent to anyone with an inkling of familiarity in that world.

Have noticed this, too.

He has absolutely no qualms whatsoever of just smashing the ball over the stand.

 

Any player that can hoof the ball over the West Stand demands respect. As soon as Cags did it, I knew he was the player for us. I don't think any other player has managed it.... I remember one over the East Stand (not sure who).

That my friend, was our Jeff from palace 😂

We are not far off looking as good as we did when we won the league and he has massively improved beyond all recognition from the player that popped up as cover last season, he could 

Not far??? The past few weeks we have played better than AMY game in the title winning season. This is a far better team

At least the Turks are a bit more clued up on football than the Algerians and a million times less annoying.

Soyuncu added another few millions on his valuation after yesterday's brilliant performance. What a lucky break that 'Slab Head' chose a big money move.

I'd love to know where that ball ended up, in the Sour perhaps? In which case it could have made its way to the Grand Union Canal so it could be still on its journey around the UK.

Honestly .. I feel he wouldn't be out of place in a Barcelona team. Am i over reacting? He seems to have everything and not even in his prime.

He has had some shaky moments against the top teams. A few good strikers have found space in tight areas around him, but let’s not expect him to be perfect... especially at his age.

There is no perfect. I never ask for perfection from my pupils, I ask for progress

This is like commenting that Usain Bolt's teeth were too yellow when he set the 100M record.

The bloke has been outstanding, beyond any reasonable and unreasonable expectation. It's not a stretch to call him the best defender in the league at the moment.

I have to say, I love the memes. Mostly because in most interviews, it is pointed out Cags 1) is still limited in English and 2) enjoys inflicting violence and pain on his teammates.

 

A dressing room either loves that guy, or hates him. It looks like they love him.

He’s in great form and is performing as the best defender in the league. All I’m saying is there have been shaky moments and if one of those were to cost us a goal, it’s a learning point that he will use in his young age to get better. 
 

I’m not criticising or being negative.

Okay, but don't all defenders have shaky moments? Isn't that just what happens when a defender is put under pressure? I think that by anybody's standards he's incredibly composed under pressure, so I'm not really sure what it is that he's supposed to be learning from?

I don't know if it's a British thing but we seem to have such an obsession with talking about young players' requirement to learn. He's already better than most defenders, young or not.

I know you already know that but I just find it irritating that a good young player can't just be a good young player. Why the insistence on the assertion that 'well he's young so he'll need to learn'.

It's a wider football thing that just grates on me a bit, case in point being Michael Owen. He was never as good as when he was 18 years old, but people seem to think that a player doesn't hit his peak til his late 20's. I don't buy it, personally.
