Unfortunately for most on this forum (I imagine), I am the guy! 😂😂

 

@Leeds Fox

 

I’ve turned up at the away ground a few times and asked a home fan to get me a couple of tickets... worked every time.

To me, he is, and as I thought he was last season, the best LB in our team. I get that Chilwell is the future - and he was given so much time and patience to learn and improve last two seasons which we do not afford other youngsters - but Fuchs has always looked better particularly when going forward.

 

His simple and direct style suits Rodgers game plan better than Chilwell’s slow dribble dribble stop turn pass back (or dribble dribble dribble until byline) sort of approach. 

 

I think Fuchs deserves to keep his place next game. Chilwell is in no danger long term so this is just to give him something to think about. He cannot just think he is always an automatic choice despite playing crap and others doing better.

Not mean disrespect but I think this is one of those good game to rest the key player while giving chance to youth as well.

 

If the game look safe, Nacho could be subbed on for Vardy 

Ffs.  Really?   We watch a different club to each other.

Not joking here. The youth need chance. Otherwise, their development is stalled. 

 

We are top 10 team. We facing a recently promoted sides. Benkovic has a decent season with Scottish Top League. Barnes give the top six few problems last season. 

 

Playing them is not like throwing dices for dewsbury hall who's yet to prove their ability in PL sides. 

TROLL!

 

Your views are weird.  We have a young squad.  There were times under Puel where we were bereft of experience on  the field.  There needs to be balance.

 

I am worried about balance in your posts.

Hmm. Troll? Whatever. 

Anyway I'm appreciate your point regarding of experience. 

 

So, I'm thinking of resting 2 player. A young Ndidi and one (yes, you read it right) 30 y.o players and we already losing experience that much? 

 

If we have to field our best sides even againts a promotion sides, when will Benko and Barnes get the chances? Cup only? 

 

I didn't get how rest 2 player felt like rest the whole team.

They are still on their promotion buzz and have performed really well in their first 2 games. This is another tough one, but if we can play like in 2nd half at Chelsea we should have a pretty good chance at our first 3 points this season.

It's never easy but we need to be winning these sort of games. It's all about attitude and getting yourself mentally ready.

I'ts easy for the big games but this is where the Manager can make an impact. I fancy a 2-0 to us. Vardy and Perez.

Playing a so called understrengh side comment has not gone down well with their fans. They think it makes us sound arrogant  and disrespectful to them. This game will be no pushover and we will have to play well from the first whistle to the last to get anything from this game.

We need to maintain a good balance between youth and older players - like we did when we won the league.

 

I like our 'experienced spine' of Kasper (32), Evans (31), .... , Vardy (32). Notice we seem to be lacking 'experience' in midfield, although maybe Praet brings that (even though he is just 25!), Tielemans is only 22.

 

We will probably play all the youth in the cup games, otherwise we'll be too inconsistent in the league. Benkovic (22) and Soyuncu (23) together as CBs will be too inconsistent, now imagine having Chilly (22) and Pereira (25) either side. When we do play Chilly, we definitely need to play Evans in the league.

 

I think this is going to be my preferred 11:

 

--------- KS ---------

RP - CS - JE - BC

--------- WN --------

--- YT ------ DP ---

AP ------------- JM

--------- JV ---------

Can anyone recommend a few local boozers for away fans, we're in the hotel adjoined to the stadium. 

There’s a pretty lengthy discussion on the Tickets board, in the match thread there.

Come on people lets not twist this ,What percentage of fans are saying we should be an understrength team ? The last few comments are making out its loads when in reality its the odd crackpot .

Might do a post later saying our players should were an eye patch to give Sheff U a chance . What next 20 post saying how arrogant Leicester fans are thinking they can win dressed as pirates !

Madison cannot play wide. He's wasted out there

Just now, Walshie is God said:

I agree, but that's where he is going to be played and to be honest, personally I'd play the front three tight to each other, but with Vardy a bit further forward, rather than have AP and JM as wingers, and then give JM a free role to move inside, like he did against Chelsea in the second half.

Is this a serious post? We haven't won a game yet this season and you're suggesting we rest players against a team who have the promotion bounce and just smashed Palace last week. I can only assume you are joking otherwise you a totally fcuking mental!

Need more width today as Sheff United play with wing backs like Wolves so we don't want to make the same mistake we did against them. 

 

Kasper, Ricardo, Chilwell (if fit), Evans, Soyuncu, Ndidi, Maddison, Tielemans, Perez, Albrighton, Vardy in a 4-1-4-1 or 4-3-3/ 4-1-2-2-1. Either way Madders and Tielemans in the middle and Perez and Albrighton out wide with Perez drifting in from the right while Ricardo bombs down the right. Barnes on in 2nd half to add some pace while they tire.

We go with our best XI, I cannot believe BR will go 'under strength'.

What IS our best XI though?

 

IMO, our set up in the past two games has been a little bit too defensive in midfield, causing us to get bogged down too much - though the second half against Chelsea was obviously better as they started to flag and Madders was more central.

 

How do we want to set up? 4-1-4-1? 4-3-3? 4-2-3-1? 4-1-3-2?  IMO, this is what determines who plays/starts, and what should be considered 'best' - especially if we want 'proper' wingers included (Albrighton/Barnes)...

Sure. I just meant 'no dropping vital players'.
