He used to score like this for Man City. Maybe we’re just good enough to get better from him now, rather than where we were with mainly counter attacking? 

Iheanacho needs 2 of 3 things, confidence which makes him a completely different player, the right service and playing in a front 2.

This is the Last min Company Thunderbolt game wasn’t it. I remember Choudhary being great in this game and look at how forward he is there and great slipped-in pass to Nacho.

 

Hamza has probably progressed the least since BR had taken over. Nacho on the other hand has done so well and now would bury that chance.

If, like me, you wrote him off once and for all after Palace away, this run of mind-boggling brilliance by Kels is just that: mind-boggling. It's not run-of-the-mill brilliance either, like we're used to seeing from Jamie Vardy. It's on another, higher level. Kels has hardly put a foot wrong in the last two games, and scored five goals from, I think, five chances (or about the same number the GOAT had in the same games, without scoring).

 

In the still very unlikely event that we go on to win the FA Cup this season, it is presently more likely than not that the winner would be scored by Iheanacho, rather than Vardy or anyone else.

 

How crazy is that? What would the odds have been on 29th December last?!?

Iheanacho hasn’t been transformed massively like many are suggesting, he’s just being given a fair run of game time. It’s bloody hard to make an impact in 5min cameos and odd cup appearances. So glad he’s taking his opportunity, the guy seriously knows where the net is. 

I feel the biggest effect he is actually not been used as a sole striker anymore, I feel he was been used wrong.  But for sure his confidence has also gone up with the run of games as well.  Hopefully moving forward Nacho is used with at least one other player up front with him in any games he plays.

Im sorry to call you out in particular Steve Earle don’t mean to single you out but if you were one of the many that did this then that frankly it was pathetic and Im Glad he’s proven you all wrong. All over twitter and FT was some really overly harsh criticism and slander towards Kelechi. I was very vocal about the anti-Iheanacho bandwagon at the time as it was so needless and fickle.

It's like the words Sensei, or Rabbi. It's used for someone that is really experienced in a field but it's used in jest in this case. Kelechi was the first to get signed up by Man City in his set which actually included Ndidi in the U17 team so I guess that's what triggered that.

He's always played behind a striker as the support right from his academy days. It wasn't surprising to see his name amongst the highest assists, or goals. To have an insight to his game just go watch highlights of the u17 Fifa world cup 2013. Was the highest scorer, assists and was MVP.

As for confidence this is a guy that's always been the star player. From his u13 days he was already being highlighted as a player to watch as every Academy tournament he went for he won top scorer and assists. Went to the U17 World Cup same thing. By the time the tournament was halfway through there was already a struggle between top teams like Arsenal, Porto, Man City and a bunch of other team's which City won.

Soon showed enough that City let Dzeko go. Pep came in and didn't like his level of pressing even though he was confounded on how he consistently got on the score sheet. 

I will tell you for free, it took him a while to get over being traded to Leicester. Rogers has been the first manager to see through some of that pain.

Iwobi is in the same situation as Kele was 2 years ago, being traded from your youth team and your confidence going south.

To be honest @TJB-fox I can't recall whether I posted anything at all, but I do recall what a shocker of a game he had, and discussing that in dismissive terms with a mate. Fortunately for my relationship with Kels, my spleen that day was largely vented on Demarai Gray, who, given a rare chance to impress, produced one of the most awful, listless and clueless cameos I've ever seen.

 

As you can see, I try hard not to dig out our players, which means generally not posting for a good 24 hours after a poor performance ;)

 

Now about that Turkish winger...:tumbleweed:

The second was a bit tricky as he might have been unsighted but how can you say the first wasn't easy? An absolute gift and you'd expect a Premier League striker to put that away 99/100 from that position. 

At least a quarter of them wouldn't, I reckon. Mbaye Diagne, David McGoldrick- I'm looking at you.

When he collected the ball from the sky and killed it instantly and passed it on. That touch was sexual. 

You had much sex recently? :huh:

Only in the squad because Gray was unwell, but bloody hell how good was he!

He finally got his LCFC moment. This could honestly be the start of a turnaround for him! He's always been able to finish, and today he finished in the most spectacular style!

 

 

Iheanacho has been spectacular since this game.

Does he only have a year left on his contract?

Yep, decision needs to be made in the summer really whether to give him a new contract or sell him

 

I think we are very likely to offer him a new deal, whether he accepts it (especially if we are going to be looking at new strikers) is another matter

We offered Gray a new deal, there's no way we're not offering Nacho one too.

 

Get Agent Wilf on the case!
