You maybe right, but i sense communication problems with the coach.

...not sure how it can be communication problem, Caglar is there to interpret for him....!!!

It will be more a clash of personalities that is the problem than anything else, the reactions of Rodgers on the side-lines watching Ünder says it all. He was totally exasperated with him and I wonder why he continues to keep him on the bench as opposed to a U23 player who I suspect he would trust more.

Golden circle and golden boys? 

 

Barnes and Maddison have 23 goals between them this season. I think their selection by Rodgers is more than justified.

 

As for England selection, I think both pre injury have been very much in Southgate's thinking. Competition is stiff though, especially for Maddison's role and obviously Under wouldn't be getting into an England squad IMO. 

 

Good luck to Under in the Euros. He just hasn't managed to take his limited chances here and I'm guessing hasn't impressed much in training either, to be constantly overlooked. 

 

I would have tried playing him more but we are sitting 3rd and so Rodgers knows what he is doing and gets more things right than not, especially on developing players.

All true.  Unless you're obsessed with hating on him, of course.

You do wonder why a club like Roma, seemingly finishing just shy of the Champions League spots in recent seasons want to get rid.

 

I know he cheesed off Roma fans after a goal celebration based around a Military style salute when Turkey invaded the Kurds, but you would have thought if he was such a superkid there is no way they would have sold never mind loaned out with a view to a sale.

 

For me, he is left footed Demarai Gray. He shows amazing glimpses, you think he could be the next big thing but in reality, his game is littered with so many poor decisions, constantly shooting and simply not a Leicester player. Just like Gray, he may well find his home where his talents come to fruition but for me, he isn't a Leicester City player IMO. We have 218 injuries and the lad still cant get in which all leads to BR making the decision to look elsewhere. The search to a RM/RW continues!!

Gray MK 2. 

Luckily we don’t own him and don’t have to pay his wages come the 30th June. 
 

I’m convinced he was a stop gap to fill in whilst Ricardo was injured.

I'm not obsessed with hating him at all, I just don't rate him, and the evidence backs it up. There are a group of fans, you seem to be one, who are totally obsessed with this one player and don't seem to care about the team. Its all about Under, where he can fit it, upset when he misses out etc. Are you a Leicester fan or an Under fan? There was actually one fan who wanted to curtail Ricardo's attacking style from right back to allow Under to not have to defend. This Greyowl guy is now making excuses for him that he has a communication problem with the manager, if only there was another Turk here to help with that eh. Just accept it, whilst his profile suggested he'd be a good addition, he isn't that at all, and it's time to accept we won't be buying him.

That's the point isn't it. Talking about visionary football manager. Actually what almost everybody missing the point is, he is a left footed player played on the left wing before until they have reversed his position in Roma.

Love the Ricardo and nobody want to mess what he does but great coach would put

-Ricardo Sharky combination on the right flank.

- Castagne Cengo combination on the left ( very much needed at the moment as our left corridor is bloody dysfunctional nowadays)

Why do we have to play 3 defense minded players( NDidi, Hamza and Mendy) and leaving left wing paralyzed and as well as congest the  right wing.

That's what was I talking  about all along. No player higher the LCFC of course but our Coach just needs to be a tad smarter and show some courage.

Vardy has been poor recently, and there's plenty of discussion about whether at 34 he's going to find form again. He does have nearly a decade and a shit ton of goal in the bank though. Barnes has been excellent all season, as have Soyuncu and Ndidi.

 

I don't hate Under, I've said it before, i wish nothing but the best when he leaves and whilst he's here, I hope he plays well, for the benefit of the team. What I do hate is fans who have become convinced this guy is the second coming of Messi based on a few fleeting appearances and are willing to change style, formation, ask other players to accommodate him, make excuses for him like a language barrier. We don't even own the player, why are you willing him to have a few good games in the hope we waste £20m on him? Would you not rather save that and spend it on someone thr manger feels fits in with his plans?

 You say you hate Under's fans but your comments are actual insults to the player himself not his exaggrators. Anyway, no need to load our troubles on a non starter loanie.

Was obviously not our first choice last summer, seems like for whatever reason we couldn’t bring in our first choice target for that position, so effectively loaned him as a stop gap for this summer, when it might be more attainable to get our first choice (Trincao/Thauvin etc)

 

Dont think Rodgers ever fancied him really, was a bit of a free hit, and served a purpose giving us an extra attacking body in the squad and allowed us to rotate in the early games of the Europa, but yeah he is just a bit rubbish isn’t he really !

I'm just being realistic about him, no insults, he's not good enough. Would it be an insult if I criticised other players for their short comings? At least the other fringe players put a shift in, try to play the style the manager asks, and play for the team. We mention the short comings in these players games all the time, Amartey isnt comfortable on the ball, Hamza is too negative, Mendy doesn't tackle as well as Ndidi, Albrighton is one dimensional, so why can't we criticise Unders short comings, like his shooting and dribbling? And he doesn't put a shift in like the others so he doesn't have that to fall back on. 

 

I think Barnes is a great example for Under, look at a year or so ago, we had this guy who couldn't score no matter how many chances he got. He clearly had pace and skill, and he followed the managers instructions, played the way he was asked and has developed into an excellent player. We've had Under nearly a season, and I imagine Brendon isn't seeing any development with Under like he was that convinced him to persist with Barnes.

Castagne has been injured most the season and one of our best players has been on the left until last week, so I'm not sure when you expected us to play the combo until now, when its become clear Under isn't working out at the club.

 

What I will say about him is, maybe he'll move on an impress elsewhere, but sometimes players sign for teams and it doesn't work they for them at the time. We had Kramaric who didn't click at the time and went on the play well elsewhere. We won't be the first team to sign a player and barely use them in the season because we realise it was a mistake. Liverpool signed Minamino and Van Den Berg and have shipped both out on loan in the first year, Van Den Berg at a time when they were short in the position. That's not to say he's terrible, just that right now Liverpool don't see him as fitting in their team or having the quality to step in. Actually we did similar with Benkovic too. I would go as far to say no player is every signed because the club think they are shit before they join they obviously sign them thinking they will bring something, but also they sign them having never worked with them before, so once they arrive they may see they don't have the quality the originally hoped.

Sorry for misunderstanding. Mentioning shortcomings is what these forums are for.  Also,there are always are some obssessed haters of specific players in these types of soccer forums. In this forum usual scapegoats are mostly Under, Hamza and Nacho. Though these players are not valued as their starters they are expected to create more than them which is unjust in my account as a fan. There is even so called fans that would be glad if one of these players broke his leg.

I had been expecting, then hoping, for Cenghis to come good.  He is an exciting player with some brilliant qualities.

 

Yesterday, however, showed that he is not going to be a Leicester player long term ( unless Rodgers is sacked and replaced by kiwiturk or someone with similar views).

 

Currently, the team is unbalanced. Cenghis starting would seemingly help to improve the balance.  People were threatening self harm of N'didi, Mendy and Choudhury started together again (hopefully this did not happen as the.NHS is rather busy ).  A more balanced team would have included the two messiahs, Cenghis and Tavares.

 

Rodgers,  based on his extensive knowledge of the players from training, feels the team is best served with the formation put out last night.  Arguably, the team included seven first choice players, Amartey, Choudhury, Mendy and Ihenacho.  Rodgers did not see fit to introduce Cenghis from the bench.

 

It would have been fantastic to see Cenghis succeed here.  Even though we have seen little of Cenghis, I would say there is a fair amount of attachment to him on the forum.  Next season, he looks like he will be elsewhere and another wide player, hopefully two wide players, will face the scrutiny of the forum.

 

The odds of Kiwiturk replacing Rodgers must be 5000/1.  Could be worth a punt.

I understand he is not fitting here or he is not part of BR's master✌️plan but calling him sh.t or insulting him is not right. C'mon.....

You're guys have to accept that there are many Turkish LCFC fans out there spread around the world, supporting the Foxes probably since  Muzzy Izzet times like myself.

We know Under and have been following him for a very long time regardless who he was playing for and  really excited when he arrived in Kings Power stadium because this boy was playing side by side  with the legendary Totti and ripped apart French National team single handedly.

Technology out there and available to confirm my statement. It just requires a simple search on the net and watch some of his previous games. 

We accept criticism but it has to be measured fairly.

- Defensive attribution is a total bulls.it because myself and other fans presented evidence in numbers and stats that he contributed more than Barnsy, almost as good as Perez defensively so this theory was end up being a nonsense.

- He wasn't the best lately but definitely he wasn't the worse either considering Hamza's today performance, Vardy's epic draught, he is merely receives the worst of the worse label.  He has clearly been nominated for the Official scapegoat of the BR. Bloody ridiculous.

I though football mangers supposed to get best out of the players but we strongly believe Brendan Rogers failed to do this when it comes to Cengo, 

So he is that good what is wrong with him?

You all need to remember when he arrives and contributed immediately. Remember that killer passes to Vardy especially in Arsenal games? Then he got injured and couldn't break in BR's golden circle. He lost confident. Simple is that.

He has been given mostly hail Mary chances to clean other players mess and expected him to clean that in 15-20 minutes. Of course you'll get jack out of him.

The reality is the  Madders and Barnsy can't even make the England's second best XI  for the Euro 2021 but Cengiz will be there and he is gonna play against Italy at the first game.

We will all see how his story will turn up during that tournament. I know where will I put my money on!!! 

 

It's done and dusted.

Let's move on and end this 106 pages long debate.

 

I know you arent happy with the comments at Under and some are over the top (from me included in the past) but it just hasnt worked out for him here. He has quality for sure but I'm not sure if its in the Premier League.

Haha. Never say never mate.

I used to be a professional and played in 2 countries and capped twice in my junior years.

I have an also A grade coaching licence which allows me to coach any team around the world. But my active football days is over. 

About the BR......

I don't rate him. We are all different individuals with the different opinions. 

Cengiz is finito here . Good riddance to him.

Ricardo and his positions are quite unrelated. One is an original right-footed right back the other is an introverted left-footed right winger.
