How anyone can say he looked sharp is beyond me. We’re you watching a completely different game?! He looked slow and clumbersome. His first touch was appalling. He didn’t offer any threat whatsoever. I would sooner look to the under 23’s than play him. Shocking footballer

I can’t work our whether @Strokes is on the wind up?

Sharp and keen??!!

Staggering. I assume it’s a joke

Rodgers made it difficult for him by not putting on Under or Albrighton at the same time, but he shouldn't have let him on the pitch in the first place.

If we had to play him because he's now realised that Perez/Barnes/Iheancho aren't going to score goals without Vardy on the pitch then I hope they have someone lined up for January.

A usual lack of self awareness Colin, it’s not like you to make a decision and then ran it home regardless of the truth is it?

Who’s out of contract this summer? Could finally be the time we have quality and depth and when we get rid of the next batch of dead wood. It could be the biggest release of deadwood next summer ie Slimani,Morgan,Fuchs,James ??, and ideally ward, Gray, albrighton,iheanacho! Then go for players like Cantwell,Buendia,Brooks,Edouard!

Some good solid centre forwards in the championship ...   should have picked at least one up especially in view of the season we have ahead of us.  Sometimes it’s not all about chasing unpolished diamonds but having a squad in place to face the season.

Thought Slimani looked good when he came on. Looked strong, fit and his first touch was great. Will be banging in the goals on thursday mark my words, the Europa was made for him. 

You know its comments like these that really make me question if i need to take a trip to Specsavers.

Can we get him back out now the wet dream of him being a quality striker is spent having seen him back on our hallowed turf? He ran round enthusiastically I’ll give him that and he may look alright in early stages of UEFA league but anybody who thinks Nacho Slimani or even Pérez or Barnes can deputise for an injured  Vardy with anything like the goal return in the PL is, for me, simply dreaming.
 

Whatever we do with our cash in the next couple of windows, purchasing a lone striker is beyond paramount! BR knew it but we either couldn’t afford our targets or couldn’t land them.

Ollie Watkins would have been decent!

Whoever we sign to replace Vardy is pretty much a certainty to not be anywhere close to his ability. The only way you make up for his loss is by improving several areas. ie. Rather than a striker scoring 24 goals and wingers scoring 6 or 7 each. We need the wingers to pick up the slack, as the replacement striker will probably do well to get 15 goals.

If we could have got rid of him in the last window, I'm sure we would have, but we didn't. While we have the current injury epidemic it makes sense to use him.

 

He might also enable us to play a little bit more direct when necessary.

Absolutely but those 15 goals are not coming from anything we have right now.

It does make sense to utilise him in games that he can do a job in... I just don’t think the PL is that place - cup and early UEFA for me. There’s a few pairs of jeans I put on eBay I didn’t sell. If I do wear them again it’ll only be for decorating if you know what I mean!

He isn't registered for the Europa and he might be gone in Jan before the cup starts. Imo he's no worse than Ihenacho but obviously when Vardy's fit, Vardy starts.

Yeah, I keep forgetting that. I do think he’s worse than Nacho by a margin but they are hard to compare as they have differing styles and functions but hopefully he’ll be gone in January yes but I’d rather have Pérez in the middle and Under the right until then. Period.
 

Lastly, that’s the last especially written decorating analogy you’re ever getting, you ungrateful bastard - not even a mention, I worked hard to reach out there.

I've not seen enough of Under to know whether  he's going improve us, fingers crossed. Maybe Perez could take the number 9 role but Rodgers has never played him there and he signed him so he probably doesn't fancy him there. 

 

 

BTW I wear jog pants under my overalls :sleep:

I think if you play to their strengths they are capable of getting close, Nacho 5 league goals in a third of the minutes Vardy got. Perez knocked in 12 goals for a shit Newcastle and when Slim first signed his contribution wasn't too shabby. 

 

A replacement for Vardy though, no. He's a leader with the desire and effort he shows on the pitch. I wouldn't want to watch their half hearted efforts up top too often.
