Caglar Soyuncu emerges as new cult hero at Leicester City

Thing about Fofana is he's still abit rash, which Caglar used to be. He's come on today and just added some cool, calm aggression. Very classy defender.

 

Agree with this. 

 

Soyuncu used to be a bit rash when he first came. Two years on, and he looks like an experienced top 6 Premier League defender. Fofana is going through the same phase as Soyuncu did.

What a wonderful dilemma to have eh?

Cags is that rare combination of aggression mixed with sophistication. Will be really interesting to see Brendan's CB selections over coming weeks.

Guess it would all depend on opposition. We've seen Fofana be aggressively pressing and leaving us exposed a few times today, especially apparent against teams with pace up top.

Wes has done a brilliant job to slot in, and improve us in some aspects, as he has, but Soyuncu is pretty much the finished article.

 

Fofana has had a great start and earned his good reviews, but Cags n Johnny is our best 2 right now, without even mentioning that Wes has been carrying a bit of a knee issue, as I recall.

Agreed, Cags was super once he came on.  It is indeed a nice problem to have, as it will be at FB once Ricardo gets back up to speed.  The one certainly is Evans has to start every match apart from rest or squad rotation, between Soyuncu and Fofana you figure it out as you go.

Very well put. Fofana has all the attributes to get to the very top of the game, but needs to learn positioning and composure. His aggressive defending style is brilliant to watch, but needs to learn that he doesn't need to do it every time.

 

Honestly in just his 30 minute cameo, Soyuncu reminded of Franco Baresi. A commanding centre back who is immaculate on the ball and contributes to the team in both an attacking and defensive capacity. He played a superb cross field pass to Albrighton in the second half that was gorgeous.

Yea with his left foot as well. Absolute beauty of a ping. Great he’s got that confidence with his ‘weak’ foot.

He’s like hired muscle. Intimidating defender 

 

If Wasilewski was Turkish, and could play top end Premier League football = Soyuncu.

Its actually quite an amazing thing to realise that, all the while we've been cooing over how good Fofana has been whilst Soyuncu has been out injured, we've forgotten just how good Cags is. His 30 or so minutes yesterday just showed that we do really have 3 top class central defenders

He was Susan tonight, I did worry that since he scraped his hair back like a girl in sixth form circa 2004 he'd been off it and have long thought he should return to his shaggy ways but tonight dispelled the myth

Off the Boyle?!

 

Love lil Wes obviously, but our shape and defensive line was much improved with cags back.

Sometimes that rashness can be a good thing. Obviously there are times certainly as a defender where it isnt.

 

Thats why i like the good cop (Evans) and bad cop (Fofana) partnership.

Phase out Evans for Fofana over the next 18 months.

Bad idea. Whilst Evans is probably not the most talented out of the three CBS, the 11 always defends more comfortably with him in it. With Europe and cup competitions they will all be getting their fair share of games but for me Evans has to be the first one selected for the big fixtures as long as he is fit and able. Granted it’s a tough predicament for BR given all probably want regular first team football but we will see how Evans fitness holds up over the next few years

Imagine him playing for Brian Clough- something like 

Go get yer hair cut son and then we'll see  about you ;playing football again!

 

Bit odd really as every other shop on Narborough Rd and high street Turkey is a gents barbers !

Sounds stupid but I’d forgotten how good he was. There’s not a single situation you wouldn’t want him by your side. Heading into a bar brawl; call Cags. Need a wingman; call Cags. Disposing of a dead body; call Cags. Laying a new patio; call Cags. Etc.
