If that's true, then I'm truly sorry.

Nah, I've always been clever as fvck. :) I do however have numerous family members with dyslexia and my grandad always felt foolish as he never learned to read and write properly so I'm not a huge fan of grammar nazis (I used to be one myself but grew out of it at about 20). Not having a go at you, you're one of my favourite posters just a topic I'm touchy about.

 

If you must know, I'm just a fat handed twat when it comes to typing and make more typos than your average person. Also, you missed that I should really have typed Barnes's instead of Barnes' and I wrote gal instead of goal. Those, along with those you highlighted, were typos more than errors but either way seemed churlish to point out. :)

It was churlish, admittedly so.

Tbf you say it here, with no mention of leadership, and that post isn't quoting anything so I had no idea about the previous post :D

Ahh gotcha. So you saw the original comment but not the subsequent explanation of why I made that statement. Which to be fair, without the context of taking him on for his leadership skills, it is an odd choice.

Rodgers has us playing "system football" which is the product of him having the whole team for a preaseason over the summer without having to go touring around the world and the result of being an exceptional coach. This upturn in form is not the result of signing a new player like Kante who causes a revolution in the way we play. These are the same players with one or two squad additions and in fact you could argue that Perez in terms of output has been one of the worst players for us so far. (So "bad" we are third in the table and smashed his old team 5-0 by the way). For all of those who were moaning about Puel holding us back, you have well and truly been vindicated, and I say that as someone who got behind the previous manager as much as possible. The proof is in the pudding!

 

Under Puel we controlled games with lots of possesion but it was sideways and backwards. Our fullbacks pushed on and did a good job getting to the byline to cross to... Jamie Vardy who was released as a teenager because he wasn't considered physical enough to be a top striker. If you want a throwback to how we used to play, look at Man United right now because they play in exactly the same way:

- Double pivot to control the game, but ends up slowing all attacks down.

- Fullbacks push on and wide forwards cut in for a shot.

- Put in plenty of crosses to a striker not well suited for that type of play.

- Slow, pedantic pace means the opponents have time to get into a low block and deal with attacks quite comfortably.

 

 

With Rodgers, do you notice that we score the same type of goal over and over again? Someone wins the ball high up the pitch through systematic team pressing and compacting the play, followed by quick passing and quick low crosses or passes across the box around the 6 yard line. It's almost like it was planned! Features of our play now are:

- High press

- Mobile attacking midfielders. Look how far forwards Tielemans or Maddison get, they often are further forward than Vardy!

- Players drift between the lines.

- Fullbacks push on much more and are expected to even get into the box in the case of Ricardo. (Technically we play a bit lopsided because of this, but same point).

- Quick vertical (IE up the pitch) passing that is kept on the ground. No messing about.

- If we lose the ball on an attack we press it back to win it back and recycle the ball

- Look to put a dangerous pass into Vardy on a player joining the attack late in the box.

 

We are similar but slightly different to Liverpool. They are much better, but as the league table shows, we aren't too bad at all.

 

This is all because of fabulous coaching. That's what makes it so incredible really! Brendan is proving he is one of the best, maybe even elite level.

 

On and whi;st Rodgers has always been thought of as being poor in the transfer market, as a club we are one of the best at that. Yes we've had misses too, but Soyuncu was planned magnificently, Maddison a steal, Ricardo right now the best Right Back in Europe, Praet fits like a glove already. Even Perez can clearly play the system even if he's not set the world on fire. And this is not even dipping into the history books to look at the team that cost 25m and won the league.

 

The next 3-5 years as a Leicester fan are going to be incredible. All of these players are going to get better!

Excellent post. ALL points spot on. Well said, Sir!!

I would have thought this was well and truly a settled matter when Steve Bruce himself said it was a straight red. “No complaints” were his exact words (albeit with an obligatory “back in my day” thrown in).

Tbf it was different then and has only fairly recently been changed ...   for the better I might add ...   when I played I saw some badly broken legs that had others puking on the pitch ...   and yes, they got the ball first !     That tackle was about as red a card as a red card could be ...   and reminded me (as it did Bruce) of the bad old days ...

Newcastle fans singing along to ‘This Girl’ ironically while losing 5-0 away....

 

Oddly enough we picked the song up from doing the same while losing to Porto 5-0 away.

@StriderHiryu is such a consistently excellent, anodyne poster, he’s already the crutch us non-tactics junkies lean on.  Which all seems ace ... but TBH could get so monotonous.

 

Stir some shit, Strider.  Let’s see the dark side    joker.JPG.f36206ca2c9fbec394ff3bc08694d03f.JPG
