I think Lineker learned Spanish and became pretty fluent.

 

I've got nothing to say about Kelechi's interview, seemed no better or worse than most post match interviews, I think it's a bit of a chore for the most part.  It's just this second language thing.  Isn't English the official language of Nigeria?

English is the official language but most has to learn at school. A friend of mine didn't speak english 'til he was ten yo.

Bit random but on the subject of interviews this one brings a smile to my face in that Sol Bamba sounds more Scottish than Paul Gallagher. 

 

 

Bloody hell that's a blast from the past. Can't remember him sounding like that. How long did he spend in Scotland?

5 years, Dunfermline then Hibs. He was probably quite young when he went over too which probably influenced the accent a little more.

That's true of course although the Nigerians I've met ( and others of African heritage, mainly via Tinder lol ) speak very impressive English. That's not knocking Iheanacho or Ndidi btw.

 

Well, that's put all the rumours to bed... :whistle:

I think nacho has developed a good accent in his English if anything! He comes across as quite a shy guy, not a huge talker, but doing the talking on the field is what matters to us :). Cracked me up with his little dance celebration too.

Can someone verify this... if so this is some record in terms of goals/assists per game!

This will very likely be about right. He has a high goals-to-game ratio, but just like when Kanté and Mahrez left, we are holding replacements to ridiculously high standards. Iheanacho just happens to be even more unfortunate in that his 'predecessor' is still here and performing.

Probably the adversity is mostly caused by Iheanacho's style clashing with the way our team plays, but there is absolutely no denying his goal scoring record. It is particularly galling when you compare him to Okazaki or Ulloa, who are already part of the folklore.

According to transfermarkt he’s played 4918 minutes in all competitions for us and has 42 goal contributions.
 

Adds up to a goal contribution every 117 minutes which is a good return :)

Starting on Saturday we have 5 games in 15 days. I don't think it would be sensible to play JV in all of them. So assuming it's one or the other, which one starts vs:

Liverpool

Sparta

Villa

Sparta

Arsenal

Easy, Iheanacho performs in the cup but rarely in the league. Vardy performs in the league but rarely in the cup.

Great stats, goal every 2 games, assist every 4 games. If he played regular football he'd get 15+ goals a season plus plenty of assists.

Think it's fair to assume his stats would improve, perhaps greatly, if he were to get consistent playing time. Obviously he's not getting ahead of Vardy anytime soon but I do think we can and should interchange them more than we do, his stats would only improve, Vardy would be fresher more often. Its win win to give him more minutes.

Nacho starts most of the cup games (until this season) and is usually a sub in the league. And vice versa for Vardy. Which just goes to show that it's hard to make an impact in a 15-20 minute sub appearance.
