Need a new LB, CB, CM, LW and ST in January and I reckon 7 players need shifting out the club whatever it takes

You’re right. It’s been a crap season so far, apart from being second in the league and in the League Cup semifinals. Reinforcements needed urgently!

Why are we playing at 17.30 if it's not on the telly? Anyone know?

Ok as you are confused the premier league changed it because kicking off at 3pm as planned was considered not enough time difference between the Liverpool game ending and this one starting

That's a bit extreme we will get max 2 in maybe 3 out on loan

Personally I believe Rodgers in terms of freshening things up given the fixture list

But I also wonder if he’s dropped a few to remind them that they perhaps aren’t as brilliant as they think they are?

A little reality check so to speak

Not as bad as most of us thought beforehand but I was desperate for us to hold out for half time. 

Fuchs should really have done better there. 

Could win this but it stinks of of a West Ham one

Nacho as a striker should be stepping up to take penalties...simple

He was off the pitch getting treatment

Yep. Combination of a few things including the above, plus tired/fatigued players being given a well-earned rest too.

I'm almost certain the penalty taker will have been designated before the game in collaboration with Brendan.

Why pick someone to take a pen who I'm certain has spent more time practicing hitting the crossbar from the half way line than practicing penatlies.

Maybe - but you'd think the Man City and Liverpool games would have done that too!

He couldn’t take it as he received treatment and had to leave the pitch until play restated

It would have been worked out pre match and Gray did score one last week at everton. So makes sense BR would have nominated him, as neither Nacho nor Perez have taken penalties in their career.

Surely if he wanted to take penalty..he would of being allowed to..he was not that badly injured..

Ridiculous analysis by Tim Sherwood saying none of the Leicester players on the field had ever scored a penalty and Vardy should feel bad being home with his new born.

 

I mean the last thing on any Premier League manager's mind is going to be about penalty taking, you'd just take it as a given that all your players (including goalkeeper) should be able to score a penalty but there's always a chance it could be missed....

 

I mean probably 75% of the fans are capable of sticking one away so Sherwood has been on the sherbet I think...

The referee had told him to leave the pitch

Probably because he took a good one against Everton.

Rodgers said before the Man City game that he'd rotate during this period. We've had the second shortest gap in the division between this and the last round of games.

Cheers, seems a daft way to go about it though, could have rested a few per game rather than just make wholesale changes. That said sounds as if uz r doing okay.

Perez needs moving into the reserve team to improve. Can't control a ball, cannot tackle, cannot score, Can't stand up.
