Youri needs to throw his weight about in that midfield a bit more...

Thing is, neither pen was given by the on field official, so VAR does at least increase the chance of those things being given, even if it didn’t on this occasion.

 

getting rid of VAR doesn’t solve anything 

So all it did was stitch one side up rather than given both penos?

Much better tonight, and really could have got something out of that game. As said earlier, feeling better about the rest of the season now. Still in third, and we have already had all our matches with the other teams in the top 4.

The team played OK, Chilwell was poor, Rodgers frustrated with VAR, he is bound to be. Cannot complain about the goal, frustrating, but that is football. We maybe could have pushed harder in midfield and Vardy was unlucky.

Someone should have fouled Mahrez in the build up there, that’s what Liverpool and Man City would have done had Maddison skipped past 2 or 3 players, and that’s the difference between us and them. 

Very true. We are too honest.

Really? He worked his butt off! He was back helping in defence then in midfield. They all worked so hard for one another!

In terms of creativity he was nowhere

Good effort for 80 minutes, last 10 minutes we were chasing shadows and looked like a pub team.

 

Schmeichel, Soyuncu, Evans and Fuchs were brilliant on numerous occasions, just a shame we went to pot in the last 10 minutes.

 

Negatives for me were the performances of Chilwell, Tielemans and Maddison, all three have been bang average too often recently.

The team’s slide in performance this 2020 has coincided with Ndidi being out of the team. Rodgers made a mistake rushing him back so soon after his knee surgery! 

 

But Praet can play - start him in his position and after Ndidi’s return start him instead of Tielemans or Maddison. Both have been poor of late and needs a break.

No offence mate but when you support the manager at what ever club he is at I’m not surprised losing doesn’t bother you

The long term view of this club is of the most importance to me. Where we'll be next year when we're in the Champions League.

The way and the intensity we played at showed what's possible here. I feed off match's like this because they fill me with hope.

You must of felt that energy. The pressing. The Work Rate.

The way I felt when I watched Athletico and Liverpool enter the Stadium this week in the Champions League. I want that for us. This is going to happen here.

I wish Barnes's pressing was better. I appreciate he is a lot bigger than Perez, so he will never deliver that workrate, but he only did 45 minutes today. Harvey is a good player, and if Vardy's passing was on point he would have had more chances, but he must do his utmost to help the press when it is on.

 

I thought Kasper had a great game apart from the odd bit of distribution. Kelachi was good as well, and I think the tactics worked much better.

At least Maddison looks decent against teams outside of the top 8.

Well done lads, they all worked for one another. If they keep this going for the rest of the season they will be fine. So proud of a young team for working their socks of and showing grit and determination. The future looks very bright 👏

the officials Simply cant be honest...and there is no discussion,they are inept and are Not adding to the game....

We weren't that bad GTBF. VAR is shit and is ruining the game. That said, the Edison incident was not a deliberate attempt to harm or fouyl Ieanacho. Watching the slo-mo replays, the goalkeeper got his hands to the ball and the follow through was unavoidable. KDB, however was a direct handball. I cant understand why they got a penalty when we didn't, given that the circumstances were almost identical. I don't go in for conspiracy theories BTW. it's not a vendetta against us or Wolves or Sheffield. It's poor refereeing. The ref today was absolute dogshit.

Maddison has been anonymous for weeks now,what was our best asset is now our weakness (central midfield)  

 

Iheanacho going off was annoying as we seemingly looked capable of creating openings with him and Vardy alternating the forward play. Vardy was isolated 2nd half and we barely created anything.

 

VAR so inconsistent tonight and I felt we needed some luck on our side to get a result and unfortunately we didn't get any, how neither of those penalties were awarded to us is beyond me.

 

Huge next 4-5 games for us, need to wi  at least 3 of them really to alleviate the notion that we could still mess this up. But firstly let's get the first win under our belt on Friday and build from there.
