We don't have negative tactics, the tactics are pretty much the same as they were in the autumn - we're just not playing well. We've lost our confidence badly since December. 

Would you say tactics are negative when we get into an attacking position then pass it back to Evan's and then Kasper.

 

That is called turning a positive into a negative this is why we cant score goals we dont know what to do when we attack

I am just waiting for the usual "we are not playing that bad, pretty good infact. And still 3rd in the league". 

Kits look well laundered.

Ricardo is actually having a bad game :unsure: all we need is Evans and soy to drop to everyone elses level and we are doomed 

Evans too much a professional to lower his standards to the others. A real pro and should be team captain. Maybe slap a few across the ear

433 Maddison on the wing again?

Why the heck not. It’s all well and good moaning about it when he’s in form, but atm he’s lucky to be on the pitch still. 

 

He might actually get in the game out wide.

Not impressed. That 3rd in the PL against a mid table Championship team and they win every duel. We can do better than this, come on.

just shown the best bit of action from city. 1 break away by brum and 1 chance by maddison and I quote ( best bit of action by leicester) says it all about our play lately.

Think we might end up coming undone from a cross into the box from them. One occasion Maddison was marking Jutkiewicz, he did a little shimmy and ran straight into the box unmarked then about a minute later had another free kick and he was left unmarked at the back stick. Would like to see Pérez and Barnes on for Gray and Albrighton, might aswell have been playing with 9 that half then.

We need to stop being so negative and fearful and just go for the fucher. What’s the worst that can happen?  We lose. We’ll, been there.

Where's our attacking play gone?!

 

This seems to be the norm now, which is really really worrying.

Worrying to say the least. Far too negative. No energy or urgency. Second half we need to show some ambition and go for it. We must get players further up the field to support Iheanacho.

Couldn’t agree with that any more tbh.

This is the fifth round of the elfin FA Cup. Great chance here - why are we so listless at this stage I have just knocked my can over in frustration.

Maddison appears to be developing into a sweeper more and more each week.

When I saw the lineup, I thought it was a great opportunity to get confidence back. Looking like it could reduce confidence further.

Don’t worry we spent 30 million quid on a winger in the summer, I presume he can do that?

Ha! If only he was an actual

winger.

Gray and Albrighton have run their race. I was surprised they were selected tonight and perhaps it was an opportunity for them to impress and win their place here for next season. I think both will be gone. They both should be.

 

In Rodgers' systems they both just look confused and clueless and end up jogging round in circles.

 

I think the poor nature of their play is why others have struggled to a certain extent as it means they try to play through the packed centre.

 

Get both off and get them both learning how to play BR's system; or move them on. MA has at least shown some effort. DG just looks lazy and he's effectively a passenger. MA is one dimensional when he gets it. I'm not sure who has been worse.

 

Praet has been good.

Slow and meandering. Thank god for Evans.  Naco had hardly any aetvice. Rest have been poor and devoid of confidence

 

Atmosphere odd without L1 and 5k blues in good voice

Can’t hear them much on FB? Just odd song. Can just hear our drum , constant songs and clapers

Bloke deserves player of the season. If it wasn’t for his efforts recently....
