Watching Barnes goal again. 
 

Kelechi standing just offside knowing the ball wasn’t coming to him might’ve played a part in the attack.

 

Giving the defenders something to think about while Barnes made his run. 
 

Either that or didn’t have a clue what he was doing :dunno:

I think it was the latter, unfortunately. It looked like he he didn’t know whether to get back onside or tie his bootlaces. I think half the problem is that he hasn’t exactly got the greatest positional  awareness

He needs to get some praise for coming on and pressing. At one point in stoppage time Southampton had the ball near halfway and his press resulted in them having to go back to keeper and hastily getting rid of the ball.

 

He does stray offside a lot though. He tries to play on the line but doesn't really move with the defenders when they push up.

Time to upgrade. Never been good enough to step in without coming up short. I was a believer he would get to the level required, unfortunately not he doesn’t have it between the ears, not switched on enough  be a top striker.

A good cup player, he is definitely excellent Championship level/ good for 3/4 of the Euro matches we would play.

NOT good enough for Prem.

GET RID

Surely he does deserve praise for coming on and running around a bit, that's the least you'd expect of a professional footballer paid thousands of pounds a week 🤣

No awareness, first touch or technique like a rabbit in the headlights when he gets a pass

I could train my labrador to press but it wouldn't make him worth 60,000k a week. The least you'd expect from a professional footballer is to be fit and run around a bit 🤣. Perhaps a pat on the head and a gravy bone would be appropriate praise?

I believe Nacho is a confidence player and right now he doesn't have any ? certainly plays like he doesn't.

 

minus JV we might have to try and adapt and play with two up top, to try and help out the respective player's weaknesses (nacho and perez) 

brentford gives us the chance to try this out with lesser stakes

He and the team looked decent in the early europa games without Vardy, hopefully they can click into that sort of form.

Playing euro opposition that was league 1 standard though! there's a big difference. The guy just ain't good enough. If he were any good he would still be at Man City.

We brushed aside Braga, a seasoned European side 4-0 in the home game.

He followed that up by blanking the last 3 games. Most notably losing in Ukraine at the worst side in the group without Vardy on the bench.

I'm guessing that was Kelechi's fault?

If someone wants to use a good game as proof he's good I can counter it with no shows.

That's fine. But doesn't mean you can pin the blame on him for a loss :dunno:
