Fantastic performance.

 

Castagne looks tailor made for us.

 

Mendy was fantastic.

 

Vardy was amazing.

 

Thought Tielemans was our best player today, he bossed it.

Pinpoint summary

 

With the window still open hopefully we can add depth and with the likes of Ricardo and Evans due back we actually do have a lot to be positive about, regardless of what the bedwetters say.

I do wonder if the lockdown buggered Barnes a bit. I heard the stat he hadn't scored since the Villa game, the one right before the first big lockdown. That was a big moment for him and he might have had his confidence knocked massively.

He definitely needs to either mix it up in his shots and not be worried about missing or have some more specialised training. This is the kind of thing that needs confidence - similar to Nacho, I suppose.

We really needed that. Thought the second half was total control.

 

It was a very similar game to the Palace win in July.

 

It's about time we won away again.

It's going to be the tight matches that decide our season again, for me. I still fancy us with our quality to whack a few teams, if we can nick some more 1-0's and 2-1's that will make such a difference.

Maybe thrives on the atmosphere more than most.

I hope all those who were predicting an easy win for WBA will now apologise, or at least STFU until there's actually something to moan about.

They're too focused on us not being perfect first half. Our team has spoilt the frenzy of moaning our boo boys we're banking on

It will be. I think that game's eased fears as much as anything. It doesn't single handedly wipe away any criticism, but it does give us something to work with going forward.

 

I was surprised quite how bad West Brom were. Bleak times for them on that showing.

Liked this from the West Brom forum:

 

The pace of Barnes was ridiculous for that penalty. Ajayi was one of the quickest players in the Championship, Barnes made him look about 60 years old.

At least they appreciate Barnes, loads of our  expert lot reckon he's sh1t

Wasn't looking forward to this especially with Wilf playing in defence but that's the best we've played in ages.  Ropey first 20 minutes but after that all about us.

 

Castagne looks a great addition. Mebdy superb and Vardy doing what Vardy does best.

 

Happy for the squad playing so well but West Brom were just the pits. A good start but bigger tests await.

Some real successes individually in there and perhaps all the anxiety/nerves we had before the season ignored the fact that when we're playing well, we're a dominant team. There were moments where we looked leagues ahead of West Brom, which was excellent. Brilliant to see Maddison back in the mix too. 

 

Of all, I thought Tielemans was absolutely outstanding and controlled the every aspect of that midfield. So happy for him.

The Leicester special under Rodgers in that it took some time to get in gear, but an absolutely domineering performance second half, reminded me of the first half of last season in that we never looked in doubt after about 30 minutes. 
 

However, WBA look the pits and select few teams will allow us the luxury of playing Ndidi at CB without being punished. We really do need a couple more signings for depth. 
 

Excellent response from Rodgers and the team though. Exactly how we needed to start this season off. A lot of fears have been alleviated on my end.

Don’t think it can be understated how important the Belgium games have been for us. Perfect opportunities for Tielemans, Praet and Castagne to build some confidence, match fitness and sharpness surrounded by good players. Those three looked excellent today for me. Mendy was also very good and Jamie Vardy is just the ****ing king.
