Ben Chilwell

Joe Mattock, those are the pricks we abuse. Not England's LB from our academy with 50+ Leicester appearances

Brings it home that doesn’t it. There’s some really weird irrational agenda against the lad and I cannot for the life of me think why.

Back the guy. Loved the roar when he drove forwards in the first half, we have to support players like this. Rodgers' actions at FT show that it does affect him/others.

 

 

Your first point is really telling. 

 

The crowd are more than happy to back him when he's playing the way that we know he can. 

 

The negativity of his football in recent weeks is mirrored by the crowd, and rightly so. He's been the weak link. 

 

Hopefully he sees that. It isn't a personal vendetta, i don't think.

I can only think they are jealous of his hair.

I like him. When he was dreadful against Southampton, i.liked him then. 

 

Nice lad. Fitness to burn. Room for.improvement but I enjoy watching him play for us.

 

We'll.miss him.when he's gone x

Fair play to him. Played with confidence and honest enough to say he's struggled recently. Good lad

Much better today. Still had some brain farty moments but at least he was looking to be positive with his passing and was willing to take on his man or come inside and create space like Ricardo does so often on the other side. Hopefully he keeps it up, pushes on and continues to perform like we know he can.

Anyone notice Rodgers tonight brought Chilwell over to the Kop at the end with his arm around him and calling for applause. Obviously the recent negativity from the ****** has been noticed in camp.

Thought the birch pre match rally to the fans was to do with this also

Liked the little push he got from Brendan at FT to get him to come over to the fans properly as to prove the point of “look, the fans are supporting you”

 

A big improvement this evening, not quite there tho, a few bad moves but it’s a positive step forward nonetheless.

Seemed back to form today, the whole team did, though Kasper loves to punt the ball out of play when he can :ph34r: but yeah, Chilly did well.

More like you should support him. What diabolical fans we have, criticism on a message board is one thing, at the ground  it’s another.

Either way it showed Ben that there is support out there (even though some seem reluctant to give it) whether he called for it or not.

 

& I agree others have been too critical of him. The usual fans who sit around me are very vocal at times but they seemed a lot more forgiving tonight, hopefully it’ll stay that way whilst he gets back on track. 


Onwards and upwards 👍🏼

His best display in a long time. Did really well today getting forward. Still a work in progress but it seems he is "listening"

He was better tonight than the Southampton game, but I can't see the transfer links with him being anything or than lazy paper talk. Specifically with man City, I don't see how he can improve his such limited technical ability to the standard required.

He really is the personification of our squad. 

 

There is so much raw talent and potential in BC. It needs to be harnessed and honed.

Remarkable improvement tonight. Lung-bursting runs forward and nearly grabbed a goal, of which I was so desperately wanting him to score. 

 

The way the game panned out really worked out for him well but he still had to do his job on that left side and did so very well. The fact he was absolutely dominating that left side right until the last minute with those runs just goes to show how much he wants to do well and put in a good effort & performance to good measure today.

 

Rodgers as well showing how much of a great man manager he is as others have pointed out with what he did at the end of the game. Knows Chilwell has come in for some slack (OTT and unwarranted in some parts) so makes a point of making sure he takes the adulation of the crowd for the team performance today. Giving him the limelight and allowing him to milk it. That'll do him the world of good going forward. Liked Birch's little cameo message too pre-game.

At 2-1 late on in the game, he tried a nutmeg on Zabaleta I think it was, with space to run in behind, it didn't come off but not a single person moaned about it. I applauded it. That's what we want to see, a bit of bravery, inventiveness going forward and it seems like Chilwell has had a rocket up his arse too.
