We were fortunate today, hope we can take the confidence from this and finally win at Arsenal for the first time since the Brythonic ages 

First win at Arsenal since the Spanish Flu probably

Jamie Vardy, frustrates me to the point of convincing myself he should be on the bench and then he does that, absolute fair play to him.

Leicester Legend and amazing to see him reach 101 today. 

Games are 90 minutes and not 45, just like seasons are 38 games and not 31, Vardy proved that today.

That last goal was vintage Vardy. Still though, not MOTM today for me.

Ndidi was critical to today's win, he had the midfield stitched and if he maintains that for the remaining games, we'll be in a strong position for top 4, again. 

 

Just about everything looked great today, Justin got his confidence back, Barnes looked super sharp, Tielemans was superb and linked so much play together, defence was solid, incredible save from Schmeichel, Iheanacho continues to score and make things happen from deep and Perez looked properly composed in his position today, I hope his injury doesn't rule him out for tuesday. 

 

Great selection, changes and tactics from Rodgers, it makes his after game talks from the previous 4 sound convincing now. 

 

And that's that's the best pretend injury I've ever seen in football, just so that Chilwell could go to the toilet, he knows he just has to put his hand up.

No one is perfect. He probably has his preferred players based on how players perform every day and how they work within his instructions and framework he gives them. By the way you could have made a compelling argument today that Vardy should have been hauled off, not Nacho based on performances, but Vardy has ended up with two goals including one clinical finish. Sometimes you have to persevere with players when they are having a bad spell.

 

I don't really understand the hate Rodgers has been getting recently. We are 3rd in the table despite losing a player to Man United in the summer, who we are ahead of. That doesn't mean he's beyond criticism but I have seen people asking for him to be sacked! Deary me.

 

With regards to boring football, do people that is something mandated by Rodgers? The same coach who after being 5-0 up against Southampton on one of the most terrible days in terms of weather conditions challenged his team to go and get more goals in the second half? If you read about Rodgers football philosophy, he likes possession because it controls the game and means his sides can impose their style of play on the game. But the reasons we've been so "boring" is that our fast passing and interchange to break the lines up top has been woeful since the restart. Players taking too many touches, poor first touches, not making the right runs. It's probably even more frustrating to him because he has them working on not playing that way during the training sessions.

Don’t disagree with you on some of your points and you are a well studied coach.

 

My view:

I can't. As crap as Arsenal are, Palace were awful today and it's the Emirates on Tuesday remember. 

Okay pal. 
 

Ive been first to say how shite we’ve been since we started back up but a confident Vardy changes everything. Tielemans also looked good. Two goals for Vards today and two assists for Barnes will change the game completely. We’ll give them a good go.

Alot better, still not fantastic but a hell of an improvement.

 

We looked alot more 'together' before the game, the hugging before the game I took the piss out of but it was different and the togetherness of the squad looked back.

 

The play and the build up play of which i've been calling slow and labourious looked quicker, slicker, better, I still think we looked a little clueless up front in the 1st half but it was better.

 

I question whether we'd have scored if it hadn't been for 2 Palace **** ups but we caused those **** ups, we rushed them, pressed them, harried them, it was nice to see, it was half this 'transition'/half our old style.

 

I won't be getting too excited because Palace never looked a threat, ever, but it's settled nerves, it's made me smile (Finally!) so onto the next one and hopefully these reviews and feelings can continue.

Despite the recent hysteria we've had a pretty good season as much as I feel annoyed with the lead we've thrown away over the chasing pack.

Already secured our 2nd best ever points return in the Premier League after the title season obviously.

A really welcome 3 points. 

Great for Vardy to get back among the goals,but I'm not sure he was MOTM🤔

Thank you Sako😄

Any dropped points from Chelsea or Wolves would be most welcome 👍

Good win lads.

 

Happy for Vards getting his 100th and 101st.

 

Nacho keeps on improving.

 

Harvey was a super sub.

Harvey Barnes on 6 goals and 8 assists in the Premier League this season.

He could have had plenty more too, which shows just how good he may actually be one day. Definitely one we need to stick with, even if we sign a world class winger.

How good and balanced was Efan Ekoku on co commentary? So different from the sensationalist type we normally have 

Very bland voice to be fair lol 

 

Not so sure on Vardy MOTM either...

Just the type of win we needed. Some nice goals, a clean sheet and without doubt our most convincing performance since the restart.

After sitting through the droll and boring past few matches, I have to go and miss this one with some unexpected family issues. Glad that we were convincing in victory!

Egan Ekoko is excellent. 

 

I've heard him on PL syndicated streams and occasionally radio5. He's about the best and fairest there is.

Well, that was a bit more like it. Good in first half, but going 352 freshened it up quite a bit.

 

This years Arsenal are nothing to fear. If we keep winning, no one can catch us. Man U on the last day is looking quite a season ending.

Didn't think think we were that much different to Everton away. We're a decent team struggling for form and confidence. Perfectly normal. 

 

The only difference to Everton is I'm absolutely buzzing, half pissed already and don't have workml tomoz

He can be frustrating but Harvey Barnes is now joint 5th on the list of top PL assisters this season.....

Well done today lads. I was sceptical going in to it but much more our old selves today. Well done Brendan. Tactics much better and tried something slightly different to get a better result.
