Caglar Soyuncu emerges as new cult hero at Leicester City

One thing this further highlights is just how much quicker Soyuncu is at making decisions than Maguire is/was.

 

When passing the ball he spots an option far quicker than Maguire does. Maguire used to spend that much time on the ball looking for the perfect pass (which quite often resulted in a far from perfect pass) where as Soyuncu, in the same set up, seems to hang on to the ball for a much shorter space of time. It allows to transition from defence to attack far quicker. 

Of course, a lot of that could, and probably was, down to Puel, but Soyuncu just seems a better fit for our new way. 

 

He will make mistakes, one of those Cruyff turns will go wrong, but what a great find he's been so far 

We got rid of a Volvo and are pretty happy driving a Ferrari now. Great acceleration, great speed, good looks and great style.

  Not a bad CB pairing is it?

Watching the goals back on the OS  I'm pretty sure Cags reminds Hamza to acknowledge the fans one more time after the goal - you see him talking to him at  about 3:30 and 3:39 .

also at the end he was straight over with fans while everyone else is still shaking hands and hugging!

 

What a guy!

Fuchs did a shush signal to Hamza after the third, presumably referring to the boos, maybe saying that's how he should have celebrated. 

 

Also looks like Perez was a little reluctant to do his celebration until Madders encouraged him to.

Çağlar is having a blinder considering he's age and only been a regular since beginning of this season he can only get better,

if somehow BR can bring  Demiral from Juve that will be ultimate defence along with Evans experience. 

Demiral is considered quicker and more of aggressive player than Çağlar , although his only 21 ..

If he's fit for all of the remaining games in the second half of the season for me he ought to given player of the season.  I think he's been superb up until now.

Reminds me of Gerard Pique; strong in the air and on the ground, very confident with the ball and likes to contribute forwards when he can.

 

Surely one of the prestigious European clubs are monitoring him.

Another classy performance on NYD. And another one for the Chaggers Cruyff Turn Collection - this time treating us to a maverick double-take which can be viewed here at 1.21: 

 

 

Cags taking the blatant piss. Two Cruyff turns and then crosses the ball across his own penalty area.

For sure the Turks tele love him Charlaaas ,He should be Turkish ambassador to UK sort out the diplomatic relations.Head of the tourist board etc.

Things happen quicker and I was always slightly cautious on Maguire(and Chiilly)al that running out with the ball never beats a good quick pass .The Puel slow play showed that as against the similar but much quicker pace now plus  other aspects of our play,

He’s up there…. I’m guessing that Wilf is a shoe in for POTS if he keeps going the way he has been…

Is it insane this conversation is happening when our main striker is leading the goalscoring charts by 4, after missing the last two games?

 

But Cags, yeah, definitely making the best impression this year.

I get you,  but surely this season it's got to be Vardy. He has never been voted POTS yet he's an absolute legend. Please please let's show him how much he is loved here this season.

Oh yeah…. Vardy!

 

forgot about him :clap:

 

So difficult to pick one!  Wilf was my first thought though …

I saw some things from him I liked in his cameos but he's ever better than I could've hoped for. Fantastic centre half, legitimately one of the best in the league.

We had a couchsurfer from Freiburg stay awhile back. She said he was extremely impressive - apparently he earned them a lot of points with his defending and saved them from relegation. She knew he would be moving on to a bigger team at the end of the season. Nice that we ended up with him instead of Dortmund or Bayern!

He's been good, but at this point he wouldn't get my vote for our center back of the season, never mind POTS.  Just a credit to how good the other guy has been.

 

That said - does anyone keep PL stats for Cruyff turns?  Because Cags has to be near the top of the charts there.

It's his first full season in the prem.  Tbh I expect Evans to be decent because he's vastly experienced.  The same can be said of Vardy.  Fantastic, yes, expected, yes.  Harsh on him not to be awarded with anything as yet in his time here though.

 

But Cags, for me, unexpected in how good/composed he has been.  And he keeps on improving.  First full season, he has to get it imo.

Evans has been very good. Soyuncu has been great. We're in a very good position to have 2 such solid defenders who are perfectly matched together. One has copious amounts of experience in this league and the other has started off brilliantly and will only get better as well given his age.
