Praet is our most complete midfielder and all rounder I feel.. he can tackle he can pass and he can move and attack. He was also out most inform at the end of this season

He has one good game vs Villa. He's calm, tidy enough with his passing but we were in dreadful form prior to that for a few months where I couldn't see what else he was offering

We’ve just scratched the surface with Praet.  I think he’s going to hit the ground running whenever we start back up and make a serious push to be considered our best player.  No exaggeration.  You could see he had something special even when he was adjusting.

I think the only reason he hasn't is because Rodgers seems to favour Tielemans even when he is out of form.

is this a joke mate? There’s a reason sampidora weren’t fussed. he won’t be in our team or any of our rivals. He is a very average player. I believe he would be suited to a sheffield united.

rodgers favours tielemans simply because he is a much better player who has stand out attributes. It’s really that simple. 

 

He plays ahead of him for belgium and plays ahead of him for his club. Can’t all be wrong...

‘all rounder’. yes a player who is okay at everything but not good at anything. Not good enough for where we want to be.

Praet is a very tidy footballer. If we need someone in a game to keep possession and play it simple, he's definitely the man. He's not the guy who will unlock defences on a regular basis. 

 

Having Wilfred N'didi doing our dirty work allows us to play with two midfielders in Maddison and Tielemans who are far more adventurous as players. If we didn't have a player as good as Ndidi who does the job of two players, I think we'd benefit playing Praet over Tielemans.

God i love it when you post; first we had your weird dislike of Barnes, now moved on to Praet.

You’re either blind, a bit special or watch another player.

Tielemans has been very inconsistent this season though. He had a decent start but then apart from isolated games most games I watched he just seemed to do ok, his influence on the game when he doesn't have the ball is really poor. He also had a couple of real stinkers.

Sheffield Utd are one win away from CL placing. They are effectively our rivals...

he’s a player you bring on with 15 mins to go to keep it tight and keep the ball which ironically is how most of the time he’s been used.

Their manager described him as one of the best midfielders in Serie A upon his move here. Not fussed?

We might all get old waiting for Tielemans to live up to his potential but Praet is already up and running. Ten solid performances from Denis trumps one brilliant and nine mediocre from Youri for me.

That assist against Brentford still amazes me to this day.

a mediocre tielemans is both better and more beneficial to our team than a “solid” praet

Rodgers has proved himself quite deferential to the egos of the players who make the most money.

well leicester city are 3rd in the premier league, which with the exception of 2016 is a freaky season and our best since the 1960s; so think tielemans playing centre mid all season has probably been "good"

Never really understood why we need Tielemans when Maddison is our principal playmaker, if he was a consistent goalscorer like Lampard then yes, but not much evidence of that so far.

He was pretty consistent at scoring and assisting goals all of last season when he was on loan. 

 

More of a fitness issue surely?

You made yourself look stupid on here not too long ago by slating Harvey Barnes. Looks like you're now on the case of Praet.

 

I personally rate Praet quite highly and believe he will continue to improve when he establishes himself in our side, which will make you look stupid again based on your comments about him.

...it would be nice to have the goals as part of his contribution!!!

My problem is, he has been pretty lacklustre and more importantly, unable to control the team whether it is tempo or keeping the players aware of what they should be doing. I can foresee the issues he had at Monaco playing out here and we will need to cover this position. Bringing in Buendia to that role would be a more than suitable replacement.
