Must have been watching a different game as he barely gave the ball away, held it up well, linked nicely. But he won't suit that sort of performance today. It goes into him and then there's nobody running beyond because they're all so used to doing Vardy doing that whilst they drop deep. The manager has got to coach that into them when we're going to be without Vardy.

Our problems lie further back than Iheanacho. Praet was anonymous today (perhaps a little rusty) Perez was Perez, once again, today. And Barnes' performances are getting frustratingly similar, he needs to strap on a pair. Those 3 offered nothing up top today coupled with Iheanacho feeding off scraps.

Didn’t think he was as bad as some will probably make him out to be

He's been poor since day one, just turns up in the cup against lower league sides. I only remember him performing in the league towards the end of 2017/18 when the opposition were on the beach and a few games last season when he came on looking like he had something to prove.

Tbf  this is always said but he offers nothing. Good forwards make things happen too.

hes done decent at times imo, his stinkers have over shone he decent games for us, 

for my money hes done more than Perez has done

plays far better when hes in a 2 up top

I don't like to say it about any of our players but I really think he's shite. I think if you were to put him in a good Championship side, he still wouldn't stand out.

He is no better than Demari Gray, average player who is mostly average or below average, occasionally does something above average. He will make a very good living out of averageness.  Musa was s much better player. The lads 24 now, should be at his peak. For me we need to ship him off.

I don't think he is a terrible player at all, I do think his decision making is terrible though. He takes an age to react also! He can hold on the ball up yes, he is strong. His first touch isn't bad, BUT he takes an extra 4 or 5 second to react than most , he makes stupid passing decisions, he fouls when really there is no need to foul. He just isn't the brightest spark unfortunately.

Had a decent opening 20 mins Where he looked lively..

very poor after that.
Two particular instances were really frustrating... a blatant push in the back on konsa when konsa has nowhere to go.

Followed by a real lazy offside. Our attack broke down, Villa then attacked, the passage of play was about 20seconds before we regained possession of the ball And Nacho was still offside from

our previous attack..

So Nacho comes into the side to replace Vardy and take up the same job, the same position.

He just isn`t that sort of lethal predator like Vardy, he is a more cultured player, a creator and a some time goal scorer.

He will not break the lines, he needs support, or, he provides the support to another (Non-Vardy) striker.

 

He IS a good player in an appropriate system and I am convinced this is true. 

 

 

Whoever mentioned Musa....

:nigel:

I agree. I thought he played alright considering he was the only person up top having to cope with their back four alone. He never gave the ball away and made a couple of neat turns that created opportunities. He was far more effective than slimani. 
 

Iheanacho won’t work in our system until we get runners beyond the striker though. Under must replace Perez for iheanacho to become more effective.
