We played a sleeping CR team, however we were better but not exceptional in any way.

 

We hope things will improve for us

That's pretty much the size of it for me.  We were marginally better, though the last 25 minutes of the first half were dreadful.  Once we scored CP was forced to play football and that suited us much better.

 

As for Vardy, he was truly awful before the goal and the first one was an absolute sitter.  But with scorers sometimes something like that is all that takes to break them out of a bad spell - like a shooter in basketball getting a layup and breaking out of a cold spell.  If that happens with Vardy, count your lucky stars because lord knows he couldn't go anywhere but up from where he was.  Looked much more confident on the second goal.

Good leadership from Kasper here.

Great team performance, which i put down to the intensity we started the match. High press and quick interchange of passes, with passes hit with purpose.  That's the whole point of playing sideways, to eventually find an overload and switch to firmer more direct passing. It's how we started off the season and let's hope how we finish it too. We looked a top 4 club again

Vardy has hopefully got the monkey off his back and can kick on to the golden boot.

 

Quite a promising performance showing more dimensions to the style of play and possible formation options. Bennett seemed quite solid to me, and also thought Justin is looking more assured despite a couple of careless passes. Good to see Barnes getting involved in play again.

 

Champions League back on :scarf::chant::appl:

 

Edit: I think Chilwell has generally played well since the restart, but he is frustratingly one footed, more so than any player I can remember watching. It permeates everything he does and makes him too predictable going forward. He really needs to practice with his right foot over and over to get to the next level. Hope he’s OK for the rest of the season.

I must have missed that. He made a fairly routine catch low to his right but other than that, I can't think of a save he had to make.

It's a shame you missed it, it was an incredible save.

And it’s not a coincidence Chilwell wasn’t involved in that 45 minutes of football.

The King crab can stay off the pitch on Tuesday as well please.

Anyone know where I could get the replay online? Would like to watch it again.

Sky Sports puts highlights on YouTube straight after the match nowadays which is great, but I don't think you'll find a replay of the whole game? Best you'll get is Match of the Day, unless there's something I don't know about?

I’m surprised at how many posters are raving how well we played. 
 

Great getting the win. Palace were ideal opponents. However this game was an exercise in sheer will and persistence in getting the win. A number of players finally showed some tough grit to get it over the line. It’s what it’s about at times and if only that responsibility was taken in both Watford/Brighton games we’d be laughing now

I don't get it, he did absolutely nothing wrong in that game, got into good positions, defended well. Nothing wrong.

Precisely!

 

Only came off because he was injured as well. It worked in our favour but that's not because Chilwell did anything wrong.

Well you never know then if his absence assisted in our triumph, will you? 
I know what I think.

We did play better though no doubt about that regardless of the opposition! But you are right the mentality was spot on today I think some home truths were told to the players prior to the game and let’s hope now the players, play now with that same mentality in the last remaining 5 games.

..He wasn't saying he did anything wrong!!!

  Our new shape after he went off provided something different and gave us a less predictable style of play.

  Would the game have transitioned to the final outcome if Chilwell had still been on the pitch?

Not sure if it’s been mentioned, but can somebody explain how we were able to sub Hamza on?

I thought the new 5 sub rule still only allowed 3 opportunities to make substitutions?

I haven’t worked it out but I’m assuming we made 3 in play and then another set at HT which is fine. The 3 opportunities don’t include any made at HT

All of a sudden our bench doesn't look so bad , if we sign Bennett and Benko gets his act together , our defence looks pretty sound . I am pretty sure that Pereira and Chilwell operate best as wing backs , so that gives us width. If we have a problem in midfield its having Maddison, Tielemans and Praet on the pitch at the same time , rotation needed here as Man. City do. When it comes to strikers , Vardy still remains the main man but Perez , Barnes and Iheanacho can be used to suit the match. We really need two new players for a European campaign , an experienced and strong midfielder and a big , proven goalscorer. Ideal candidates for me Loftus-Cheekes and Mitrovic. Big money will have to be spent of course but when you join the top clubs you have to do that.

Subs at HT aren't considered a break in play, so don't count as one of the three sub opportunities

My bad, I read "assuming" so was clarifying but must've misread your post
