I think everyone expected him to stick at least one of his two glorious chances away. You can use a lack of confidence for not sticking away difficult or half chances but whether you're confident or not you've gotta stick easy ones away or youl take deserved stick.

I take your point, but also think missing easy chances is the sign of a striker low on confidence. Even the best do it. Look at Aubameyang in the last few months, he's missed some absolute sitters but you'd have to be crazy not to want him in your team (not saying I'd necessarily have him over Vardy before anyone jumps on it) but just making the point that when you're low on confidence as a striker even seemingly easy chances prove difficult to put away.

Finally, someone who actually understands how transfers and contracts work. You also have to consider that Gray and Slimani are under no obligation to agree to any transfer in January. They are quite within their rights to wait until the summer and move for free, to a destination of their own choosing.

Precisely. If I was Gray I would be staying put and avoiding injury. Iheanacho is likely to be on wages that currently, no-one else is likely to want to match.

He can't be on that much surely? He came here as a 20 year old who had only signed two professional contacts with Man City, the latest one being when he was just 19 years old. I genuinely have no idea what is wage is, but I'll be surpised if it's more than 35k/40k or so.

Our club spent the arse end of 60 million quid on Slimani and Iheanacho

Whoever scouted them and decided they were worth that kind of money, frankly needs shooting 

Thank God for Jamie Vardy 

Its the fine details that make all the difference 

It was Brian Clough who once said that managers are 95% the same. It’s the last 5 per cent that counts

Just take today, if we had played a good second choice striker to give Vardy a break, we’d have won that game in the first half

This all matters come the end of the season

But do you think West Brom, Fulham or Sheffield United for example,  would want to pay a decent fee and pay him 40k a week for the next 3 years?

Am I the only one who think’s his header chance was anything but simple? 
 

Wasnt he at least a yard or two wide of goal? It wasn’t like Rashford’s header the other day! 

Header chances are a lot harder than given credit for. Far less margin of error. 
 

Only have to look how Fernandes completely cocked up a shoot on Saturday but still scored

He has been absolutely revolting this season, I can't help feel the confidence he had built up under Rodgers about a year ago took a real hit after hanging him out to dry away at Bournemouth. 

 

I think it's time we looked to move him on and we badly need an alternative to Vardy. Slimani will be loaned for 6 months but Iheanacho could still command a fair few suitors as he's the right age and has shown glimpses of goalscoring ability.

Rudkin:  ‘Hello is this the telephone number for Turkish Super Lig cast offs? I have a once promising striker from the Premier League to loan out for six months. At first, I’m sure we can get Besiktas or Fenerbahce. Maybe if that doesn’t work out Trabzonspor.’ 
 

Year passes

I actually think Slimani would have finished the chances that Nacho got today

Vardy could have missed them, anyone could. What's most infuriating is the bullshit style of penalty, just run up like someone who doesn't have a gammy leg, choose a side and put some welly behind it.

I think a promoted side who need a striker would yeah. 12-15m and they'll pay him 35/40k or so a week. Give him 38 games a season and he'll probably get you 10-12 goals, it's just we can't offer him that and we're aiming for the top 6, not fighting relegation.

Think you’re gonna be right bud

Unless some Premiership hopeful pulls something out the bag, wage wise (eg Bournemouth on loan or summat)

I'm hoping a foreign club might be daft enough to take him Col. That's our best hope I think.

Probably yes

Anythings possible but for a team that may be relegated it's a big commitment. I seem to remember a wage of around 50-55k but IF the site Spotrack is about right they quote 60k which is a little over 3m per year which would make him the highest earner at West Brom and Sheffield United,  most at the latter earning around 1.5. What was a surprise was the supposed Fulham wages where quite a few are allegedly in the 3m bracket! Must be London weighting! 🤣🤣
