Ben Chilwell

People overrate him just because he’s one of our own.

 

Average going forward, average defensively and he’s been like that the majority of the season.

 

Said it before and I’ll say it again, if there’s one player in this squad that I’d like to see us cash in on it’s Chilwell.

People o  Foxes Talk don't overrate him!

 

Chilwell is a good player.  His confidence is down.  The way that fans slate him is counter-productive.

Do you know how much work Chilwell puts in behind the scenes?

Doesn’t really matter if you’re not doing it on the pitch. Deontay Wilder clearly works a lot harder on his physique than Tyson Fury but he still got battered the **** out of. Chilwell can be working as hard as he likes in training but his performances on the pitch would suggest different

Surprised he's getting the blame for the goal. 

 

Fuchs sticks with Jesus and there's no pass for Mahrez to make.

 

Other players could have gone towards Mahrez and at least not made it as easy for him to jog through, not just Chilwell.

 

Don't think he played badly. Certainly shouldn't be getting any more stick than any other players. Several times he got forward as a wing-back would, especially 2nd half, but was quickly surrounded by Man City players and/or had no options to pass. Then when he turned back there were moans and groans. Literally no other option for him sometimes.

 

 

Fuchs should've stuck with Jesus but stepped up as no-one made enough effort to track Mahrez. The 2 closest were Chilwell and Tielemans. They didnt need to make a tackle, just close him down, narrow his options. Mahrez simply had far too much space as he approached our box.

Well I'm kind of hoping that he's got a few more gears to go through off the pitch because if this is what we get from a fully committed Chilwell then I'm even more worried.

Can't blame him for the goal but, as the MOTD analysis revealed, he didn't get tight enough to Mahrez throughout the game. Once Mahrez has the ball under control in space he can become unplayable. Chilwell is a talented young player but he has much to learn. Becoming the first choice England left back so early in his career has raised expectations to levels he is currently unable to live up to. The question for the club will be do we cash in while his stock is unrealistically high or hold on to him hoping that he hasn't plateaued with a view to developing him further?

He needs better ball control at times, offensively.

 

There's been a few occasions recently where he has made great runs on the attack, but then let's him down in taking the ball out of play in the process.

Arsenal fans were shitting on Saka until recently. Let's face it, whoever we would get to replace Chilwell would get torn apart by our fans. Even Ricardo wasn't good enough at one point.

 

Hope we keep playing Chilwell. If anything to keep winding people up.

Yea and Morgan, Silva, grey etc...sod the performance and giving others who deserve it a chance.

I'd love to know how many times per game on average he dribbles the ball out of play, and how this compares to the average number for full backs in the PL. It's absolutely baffling to me.

Natural fitness aside, I don't really get why he's rated so highly outside of Leicester. On natural fitness - it seems to be that which is valuable. To his credit he does get up and down the left side very well.

Unfortunately, though, he's generally poor going forward, and suspect at the back.

Puts the odd great cross in from time to time but those are the exception to the disappointing rule. 

Difficult one as he's clearly a popular member of the team and flogging him isn't likely to end well. Equally 'reluctantly' accepting bids may turn the heads of the likes of Maddison, Pereira, Cags and Wilf.

That said if we can pocket somewhere north of £40m, which is likely fair game for the first choice England left back and replace him even with someone half decent, and if we don't rock the boat in the process, we'd be better for it.

As with all of these sorts of comments I will caveat that a couple of years ago I thought Raheem Sterling was destined for failure, so clearly I'm no expert. Perhaps there is a plan in place to improve his weaknesses and our coaches believe we can achieve that while keeping him at the club. Call me a pessimist but I think it's unlikely, and if he improves he'll definitely be off anyway. 

Difficult situation for us to navigate, this.

Yeah he had way too much space, that goal was way too easy which made it all the more annoying, especially after the VAR drama. I still can't get over Edison knocking out Nacho and staying on the pitch.

Our fans have lost the plot. genuinally, they've completely lost their heads since the title win. England's first choice full back, home grown and still a kid, and all they can do is moan.

He isn't very good. What's your point? 

Barnes and Choudhury are also young and imperfect but don't receive nearly as much stick, certainly not from me at least. It's very clear to see their abilities, how good they already are and how much better still they could become.

Chilwell? Nah. Incredibly frustrating player to watch, slows the whole team down with his poor first touch and failure to pick a forward pass. Also lets us down when he's weak in the tackle and ultimately is a weak link in the team.

Cant agree,with your last Paragraph at all..!! Like Any player he makes mistakes,but far Away from Making a Major Point out of it..!!!

And no way his he letting The team down.....Amazing when People concentration is on the negative,they miss the good Interventions, tackles and moves.

 

Ricardo looks and is more dynamic,but he also misses alot of tackles,and allows many crosses to get in,but I recognise thats just a Fbs 'lot'

Perspectives & opinions....

One Thing I would like to see more,is Chilwell driving forward and Take his man on somewhat more..Even if he loses occasionally the ball...

Hes done it for England,Hes done it for us...,of Late he seems to have lost his confidence,he needs encouragement from the Coach & manager...

(Which he might be getting)..

His confidence is down.

So you’re basically saying his confidence has been down for the majority of this season?

 

Instead of making excuses, maybe realise that the guy is bang average :thumbup:

You said the same about Mahrez.

In my opinion, Chilwell could learn a thing or two from Robertson by being more of a **** on the pitch. If he were to show a little more aggression, he wouldn't be bullied so easily by opposition wingers, plus he'd benefit in other areas of his play. He has the athleticism, there's no doubt about that, but his mental game hasn't quite caught up yet.

Yes, agree 100%

Less nice boy next door, more serial killer next door required.

Also agree that Robertson comes across as a right ar$ehole lol
