He didn’t have the best 1st half but kept trying and didn’t give up 2nd half and got us 2 goals.

I’m really miffed with Vardy at the moment. He’s our legend yes but has to FACE the music now. His performances have been unacceptable. He’s declined so badly for his standards. Date I say if he were anyone else he’d be spending some time on the bench.

calamity first half from everyone.

Forget the game, I'm so pleased with Kelechi, he's on fire at the moment, and long may it continue! He deserves to show how good he is.

Completely agree. Gutting to say about Vardy, but if he was anyone else he'd be benched by now 😔

What I really like about him is that he drops into that no 10 position, half turns and lays it off or tries to make something happen. He also lays the ball off and we can build around him. Vards doesnt give us that and needs the ball behind.

 

I cant wait for Maddison to be the one playing behind both Vards and Kelechi as we will have all sorts of options going forward. Its just a shame Madders messed up and didnt give Brendan the opportunity to play him instead of Praet.

Imagine saying this just last year.

I think Kel’s overall game is actually v good - he’s great and getting on the ball and opening up the pitch and that venomous left foot is becoming more lethal with each game that passes. His decision making can be a bit wayward and he can look clumsy, but he definitely gives us do much more than just goals.

 

Kel’s dragged us through this period with Vards out of sorts and Harvey + Madds unavailable. A huge achievement for a player that was actually dropped to accommodate the underwhelming Perez as a false 9 not long ago. If we scrape Top 4 he will deserve a lot of the credit.

For me this is the most impressive thing about his improvement. He did make a mistake which ultimately led to their third goal, but throughout the game he was linking up with others, playing one twos and making things happen for us. He has been our best player for the last two months now, maybe he wasn't the best against Man City, but he didn't have much of the ball in that game.

 

As @dayday says, in current form it would be wiser to find a strike partner for Nacho than a replacement for Vardy which is utterly bonkers to say as a Leicester fan, but is the truth. I wonder if Barnes and Nacho can be a front two, it has been tried in cup games and given Nacho's current form and Barnes before he got injured, could be quite lethal.

 

Nothing but plaudits for Nacho. Dropped from the team numerous times under multiple managers, he didn't complain, didn't go partying and instead worked his arse off to get back into the team. Then when given a run of games, showed everyone what he can do and has done it consistently. Some of our players need to take a look at Kelechi and use him as a role model, he has been nothing short of first class in 2021.

Yes, I was just thinking about this myself.  With Barnes pace and strong running I think it would work. Iheanacho being able to drop a little deeper and able to play runners like Barnes in.

Previously when tried it’s looked OK but not something that would cut it at the highest level. But the current version of Nacho is no joke and it might work. Guess we will see next season.
