We really need a winger in the transfer window perez is defiantly not one  Tilemens form has been up and down this season as well we really miss ricardo as well.

I think Justin has done okay but he's not a complete wing back, more a RB imo. Tielemens is so slow, looks better when played high up the pitch but why didn't we see that when we spent the money on him

Chelsea fan very much in peace here.

 

I can fully understand some of the comments on here and in truth at half time we should have been dead and buried. Thankfully for us we weren’t.

 

I really have enjoyed watching you lot for a few years but what’s abundantly clear once you get deep into your squad the strength no where near matches the quality in depth of many of the other clubs challenging for CL places.

 

For instance Wes Morgan. Been a great servant for you, I actually saw him play for Notts Forest against Weymouth in the FA cup in 2005. To have him anywhere near the fist team at age 36 surely is an issue.

 

Vardy to me has been an absolute diamond for you but a shit for every one else. He is fast approaching the end of career again been a great servant but the hard thing is saying thanks but your time is done. His movement is still there but that super acceleration is not  there anymore.

 

As for Chilwell I understand the anger but professional players don’t love the club in the same way as the supporters they very much are focused on far different things.

 

In closing you should have buried us in the first half but once half time came an the ability to change 3 players then it was always going to be different.
 

As an aside was the gusting wind the issue I thought it was ?

 

Be safe especially if what they are saying about the virus in Leicester is correct.

Vardy isnt done yet in pre season he was as quick as ever i think its the fact he gets sod all service anymore.

I'm the first to shut down an overreaction but can we just quash this theory that we were good in the first half?

 

Gilmour kept giving us the ball which put us on the front foot, but we still didn't create anything clearcut. Don't let that make you think we bossed it or played well.

 

Gilmour was dragged and Chelsea didn't need to get out of 2nd gear from then on.

Gilmour may have been shit, but you can only play what's there. And we did boss it. Evans's chance was as clearcut as you will get. Soy had a chance Barnes had a chance Vardy had a chance. We are not scoring and that is the problem.

That’s what annoyed me the most! We winning the ball in good positions time after time and other than Tielemans we squandered every opportunity and we showed our lack of quality up top. Hopefully we can sneak the top 4 and invest invest invest.

No idea it's weird maybe give him a go in the maddison role on weds but we also need someone who can take a bloody corner as well lol

Chillwell is not there to do what Ricardo does. That was Justin's role.

Praet and Ricardo are musts if this team is gonna do ANYTHING this season.

We're in the shlt boys.

Europa at best.

I think there has been an obvious tactical switch, Rodgers doesn't rate Justin going forward so he has tried to give that mantle to Chilwell.

 

Unfortunately Ben is shit beyond the halfway line.

BR talks far more shit than Puel used to, but doesn't get the criticism for it.

 

He'd have been more accurate to say that we badly missed the home advantage that a crowd would have given us and that he ****ed up by not bringing Nacho on for the last 30 minutes.

Nobody could understand what Puel was saying.

Our squad is just not strong enough. Having to play our strongest 11 every week first half of the season took it out of them.

 

goes to show now that with 5 subs we haven’t got a single player who can come on and change the game.

 

Big work needed in the summer. Flog chilwell for as much as possible and bring in Tierney, Lallana, Edouard, Demiral, Benrahma and William Carvalho ( or players of similar quality)

I didn’t say he was done what I said is I don’t see that super acceleration any more. In truth at 33 it’s not surprising.

Oh Brendan please dont do this. Nothing worse than a manager in denial.

I want to hear "We were bad, we all know we were bad and we will do everything to rectify it. We need to be quicker, slicker and more clinical. We will work our socks off to keep the top 4 but we cant carry on like this."

 

Coming out and saying it was a good performance. **** off.

Deluded blarney. All fur coat, no knickers.

I think youri did far better at corners than Maddison who seems to hit floaters, the wind was bad today so you can forgive him a couple, i think Utd might think they dodged a bullet with youri but I think given the chance in Maddisons position he'd be class, but he won't get that chance unless madders leaves. 

 

I'd like to see us play with Praet, youri and madders in the centre to see how that worked out.

He's still the top scorer in the PL. Which is remarkable when you consider his recent form. I blame the baby. And the injury.

Totally agree! Show some blooming passion Brendan.  Be pissed off! He is really beginning to annoy me with his monotone shite. We were losing and you don't bring on kelechi? You take off Praet when he was one of our best? I'm mean what the hell? I actually don't think I can watch much more this season to be honest. Positives though we were better in the first half and It felt better but that's no good if you dont score. We should not be relying on full backs to score!

Are we allowed to say it’s time to drop Vardy ? I know he hasn’t had much service but christ his hold up play has been awful. Actually feel Iheanacho would offer us more at the moment

Don't be silly now !

That's TWO chances !!!

Vards should be having 15 chances per game, what the hell are you on about ?

Look at the player reviews on here mate. It’s not just me. Vardy was poor today on and off the ball. He hasn’t come back well since the season restarted irrespective of the lack of service he has got, simple as that. He’s a leicester legend but that doesn’t prevent him from getting criticised when he’s played badly.

There is just nothing in the box at the moment. The keeper never gets challenged, the defenders don't get whacked by people going full pelt to try and score, we just drift the ball around, play it back, knock it long to the back post.

 

The first half was good, the pressing and harrying was there and poor finishing let us down. The second half was crap all round, terrible ball retention and so little threat going forward. Taking off Praet was odd unless he was struggling with a knock but the lack of urgency and belief in the past 20 minutes was all too familiar.

 

Individually, I thought Schmeichel was excellent again for the third game, Justin coped well, Praet was our best outfield player. The rest had glimpses of promise but so little quality.

 

Squad needs overhauling massively, as does the attitude. It is far too comfortable currently.

Isn't this what some managers think is the right thing to say when they believe the team is struggling with confidence? Tbf if BR says, yeah we were a bit crap, and starts pointing out players that didn't perform, that's the beginning of a journey to losing the dressing room, that's exactly what mourinhio does.
