Kelechi Iheanacho

VAR really is pants isn’t it

Anyone could see there were little kicks aimed at Kelechi, lying prone on the floor

VAR will stop a goal being given on account of an arse-hair, but won’t intervene in nonsense like this?

Meh

Yesterday's paper said the prem clubs wanted var to avoid hairline decisions by the need to only get involved if there is a clear and obvious error. Big mistake.

This is mad.  We got var in coz we needed to sort out poor ref decisions ... yet the clear and obvs thing kowtows to the refs.  I think the var should be about truth and get involved in anything they see.  Fouls on nacho and assaults be Cantwell etc.

I noticed also that to avoid being hit on the break norwich fouled the first man...allowing their defenders to get back. Cynical. Var should have intervined  with yellow cards every time... that's the only way to stop it.  The prem is in the entertainment business and the6de fouls frustrate entertainment.

Finally... If we dont want armpit off sides then just implement a 5 cm tolerance on the body above the waste.

Really really pleased for him. He's taken a lot of flak on here and the booing of him coming onto the pitch has been frankly embarrasing at times. His goal yesterday was one which showed a real striker's ability to be in the right place at the right time. Just the smallest of movements put him in exactly the right position. His workrate seems better and he's really starting to contribute. A bit more love and support from the fans and good man management could see him become a key player as the season goes on.

5 goals

2 assists 

Goal every 61 mins in all competitions

 

You would take that all day long.

Exactly why we signed him, still not the most technically gifted footballer, but he’s reverting to his effective old self

Work rate remains suspect at times , his touch was very poor at times , but he did ok he needs game time And he will get that in FA cup 

I thought he seemed to improve dramatically after his goal. A bit of confidence and he was like a rat up a drainpipe chasing everything, taking players on and trying tricks and flicks etc. 

All strikers thrive on confidence and it seems that now he has got some of his mojo back he is starting to look like the player we bought not the shadow he had become. Poor chap looked like a rabbit in the headlights at times but whatever has changed has obviously been significant.

Thought Iheanacho had another tidy game where he was effective in and around the penalty box. He gets way too much stick from our fans - some morons a few rows behind me genuinely started chanting 'you're not fit to wear the shirt' which is plain embarrassing. For me, this season he is doing exactly what he should be doing. Supporting Vardy by chipping in goals and assists when covering him in the cups/league, and also alongside him when called upon. He looks sharper, more mobile and he will score goals when given the opportunity. If he finishes the season with another 5-6 goals in all competitions and supports us into the Champions League spots then for me, regardless of struggles under Shakey and Puel, he's been a good signing.

A fine example of confirmation bias, if ever there were.

As in I'm automatically bias towards Iheanacho for calling people morons who were jeering and booing our own player after he scored and put in a good performance yesterday?

I remember where people thought we had something personal against nacho, he simply wasn't good enough before, but after the long spell out and training under the new coaches he's a new player.  I was one of the biggest criticiser's of nacho and I gave him MOTM for west ham.

I've never seen a player who vacillates between looking like he's never run before and has just discovered his legs and pure strokes of genius. There's like no middle ground with Nacho.

I love the guy. There's something about his constant deadpan expression and his weird jerky running style that I find very endearing. Glad he's turning things around as I imagine I'm not alone in thinking we'd seen the last of him and he'd be gone in January.

 

Not the perfect player but we don't need him to be, we need him to work hard, link play and score goals and that's exactly what he's done when given the chance. Long may it continue :)

In terms of time on the pitch, has he been our most effective player this season? Six goals, a couple of assists, won a penalty.

And that's what he did at man city wasn't it... 

His finish looked even better in slow motion.
