Come on lads he's obviously not garbage is he.  He just doesn't score or get anything here because the service our strikers get is absolutely woeful.  Unless you can run and your name is Jamie Vardy you don't have a chance, our set up and way we play is purely to suit one player.  Hence why we look garbage everyone he doesn't play.

No, he’s garbage anyway

Completely pointless bringing him on, we couldn't get the ball high enough up the pitch to get him into a goalscoring position and we didn't play it up to him to get players around him to get ourselves up the pitch. Asking him to get on the ball in the channels on halfway ffs. If you want to play someone upfront and pretend they're Vardy, stick Barnes up there. 

 

The action he did have wasn't too bad, I mean you'll often see Vardy do what Slim did on the ball today and not a peep.

Newcastle and Fenerbahce fans would disagree

Its sad that our striking options have come down to this.

 

There are reasons why he hasn't played for 100 games, going back cap-in-hand to Slimani just shows how desperate things have got.

 

Not the worst striker ever but we're clearly playing him because we can't get rid and we have no other options.

I'm still not buying it.  The reason certain players look trash in our team is because we basically ignore certain players strengths or even worse, don't play to them.  We play the "Vardy" way even if Vardy isn't in the team!  Like I've said before we are one trick ponies and that's because Rodgers doesn't have a clue how to play otherwise.  

 

If you bring Slimani on chasing a game or wanting to win a game, you also bring on players who can give him the service to play to his strengths.  But no, let's continue to play long balls into channels hoping that Slimani, or Nacho, can run like Vardy can.  Its  nonsense and amateur hour stuff.

 

I genuinely can't remember the last time I saw a team play who are as one dimensional  as we are.  We have one way to play and thats it.  If that doesn't work, then take the L and try it again next week.  

 

And all we do as city fans is sit and blame players who don't fit the one way system like its all their fault.

In all fairness to Slimani, we cast him out and said we don’t want you basically for 2 years. I know he is contracted to play for us but his heart cannot be in it. Can’t blame him either if that’s the case.

The reality was that Slimani when he came on was absolutely bloody awful. He genuinely DID look like a Veteran.

Dont forget boys and girls, this bloke cost our club nearly 30 million quid and an awful lot of wages. 
I’ve said it before, regarding value for money, he’s got to be about City’s worst ever signing.
Absolutely stealing a living

I'm not going to pretend he's ever been brilliant for us, but people seem to be totally ignoring that he won't have played any football since March. He's clearly lacking match sharpness.

No worse than Iheanacho, no better either.

 

I said in a transfer thread I’m one of Slimani’s biggest critics and (apparently) ‘hate’ him but I’d give him another chance purely based on the fact we seemed to refuse going for another attacking option/striker and wow we need him more than ever now.

 

It’s about playing to suit him though, something that seems we refuse to alter.

I said 3 years ago once a cart horse always a cart horse, he may score shit loads in Mickey Mouse leagues, but he shouldn’t be anywhere near this first team.

 

Some of you need to to take your blinkers off, you carnt polish a turd.

I don’t often agree with you but you’re spot on.

He's definitely benefitting from the tendency our fans have to rate players more and more highly the longer they are absent from the team. I give it 25 minutes back in the team before he's being slaughtered and called a cvnt again.

:appl:

There is a reason he is still here after being made publicly available for loan by the manager.

Agreed. He looked out of place, with his inability to control a ball confidently, shaky 5 yard passes, and general lack of mobility. Not what we've come to expect at this level. He's just not ever going to be good enough. Face like a slapped arse to boot.
