Good post but I don’t agree back up to Vardy isn’t important anymore. We can play how we play due to two key reasons. Firstly, Wilf Ndidi enables us to go forward so freely. He’s a rock. Imo him and Kante are the best two central mids in the Premiership

Secondly, Vardy... possibly the most selfless striker I’ve ever seen. His energy gives us outlets constantly.

Kelechi is no Vardy. You watch how this team would change without Vardy in it

Kelechi has been great under Rodgers. But I think we need strength in depth up top.

I never said Kelechi is as good as Vardy. Vardy is one of the best in the world.

 

What I am saying is that Nacho, playing like he has recently, is about the best we can hope for as a reserve for a position we only use one of in the first XI. If we carry on with the diamond, then perhaps there is room for one more striker in the squad, but if we're mostly playing one up front, I don't think we can realistically expect to have anyone near Vardy's quality come here and be happy to warm the bench every match.

 

If Nacho carries on playing like he is now, then I'm happy with our options up front.

Did get hooked because what he did today or was there an injury or something?

 

Tbh as soon as it all kicked off (Rightly, wrongly or indeed stupidly) and Cantwell stormed half the pitch to grab him by the scruff of the neck (Perhaps slight exaggeration but looked like the from the kop end) I thought i'd get him off because I didn't think his head would be right after.

I think he did absolutely the right thing, **** sportsmanship when the title is on the line. 

 

Thier player should have been sent off (**** was wearing a headband as well) and they should have had the other guy sent off. 

 

Why should we kick it out just because one of their players fancies a lie down, you telling me he couldn't have rolled off the pitch if he wanted to. 

 

It was their choice to kick it out of play therefore our ball and Kelechi had every right to do what he did. 

 

The fact they acted like pussies all game, rolling about, committing fouls like they were going out of fashion means they would have deserved to have to have lost, its just a shame we dropped 2 points on the *****. 

 

****ing bunch of 7 toed inbred bastaards, **** off back to the championship where you belong.

It’s the referees responsibility to stop a game if he wants to, usually when there is a head injury. Clearly the player was trying to break up play and slow the game down. We played on, they then put the ball out (their decision) when they retained possession. It was rightly our throw, as indicated by the referee when they wanted the ball back. If they had put the ball out for our player then I can understand the reaction, but it was their decision and the player didn’t even require treatment.

 

Whether or not Rogers didn’t want the headache of scoring under those circumstances I don’t know, but I can’t fault Kelechi here.

Completely agree, although I thought the situation wasn’t well handled by the Ref when Kelechi was fouled and then surrounded, it appeared to me and others around me that the keeper had actually kicked him while he was on the ground but the incident was checked by Var so I assume it couldn’t have been the case

Gray was getting instructions before the incident even happened, we needed to change shape and Nacho was the unfortunate sacrifice. 

Agree Nacho was the sacrifice for the required change of format, but have some sympathy with the lead in as he clearly felt we did not owe them the ball as they just kept laying down  and did not even need treatment.

Iheanacho obviously got as fed up Norwich's theatrics as I was. He did nothing wrong by taking the ball forward. The Norwich players' behaviour after he was fouled was utterly disgraceful. I think it's hypocritical when players who think nothing of cheating, diving and feigning injury suddenly adopt a high moral code about giving the ball back after a trivial injury.

I’ve mentioned it a few times in recent weeks but I’m getting seriously fed up with opposition sides who fancy a sit down when there is nothing wrong with them. It seems to be happening much more this season. Notice how the team needing to score never does it. I hope someone gets punished soon directly from them kicking the ball out for a break in play.

Remember Nacho was thrown the ball by our  player (not sure who)and may not have seen the previous action .Whoever took the throw may have given it back to Norwich if they felt it was a gimme situation.We didn't even get a free kick for the foul.!

Thought so too. If there was consensus they deserved the ball, it would more likely have been thrown directly to Norwich.

 

Furthermore, it would be incorrect to characterize it as “giving it back” because Norwich actually did not have possession and then voluntarily CONCEDED such possession by kicking the ball out of touch so that their player could be tended to. Rather, the ball flew out following the full-blooded challenge between Pukki and Ricardo (though it is feasible that Pukki flew into the challenge to get the ball out of bounds). Perhaps, that’s when Pukki broke his toe.

 

Nonetheless, I personally wouldn’t have had any issues if Iheanacho had voluntarily handed possession to them in that situation. But their reaction was OTT!
