We've just got rid of one skillful player who was selfish and couldn't make the right decision, we don't want to replace like for like we want to upgrade. 

Not even close!

 

Brendan wants more goals from right midfield/forward, and Gray made 14 appearances with 0 goals in his first season with us, and 2 goals in his first 2 seasons with us (55 appearances). Under is already at par with that in half a season (Demarai's first season with us was also a half-season).

Was a nice finish with his right foot for the goal. Really unlucky 

Yep! Really unlucky there, as he wasn't the one in an offside position.

In fact, none of the players seemed aware that Nacho was off until the flag went up retrospectively.

I still like him, it wasn't a great performance but he's still far more of an attacking threat than Albrighton or Perez. He's unpredictable and that's what you need to win games some times.

Still behind Albrighton for me after that performance though he looked much better when he had Maddison to link up with.

Just Take a Really hard look at yourselves...

 

The FT Lynch mob came out vor Nacho...

Same people:- Under must Play, BRodgers, is missing a trick..!!

Under..1St selection for awhile, no Doubt under pressure.."The team" was poor tonight...

Same people:-  Again Noose out, this time for Under....

 

I wont hide the fact, the team was poor...but ...!

Thomas...did ok.

Amartey, Soyu....Got some game time in their legs..

Ndidi & Vards, After immediate injury ,got some more minutes in their Legs..

Daley-Cambell..ok debut...

 

For L'pool game...I still wouldnt wouldnt mind seeing :-  Under, Nacho, Vardy, starting, 

Using Barnes Coming on as an Impact Sub...

 

The Brighton game doesn't define future selection for Under, unless other off-field issues are on the Agenda..!!

Plus he could well of been Instructed to Shoot on sight..

He looked desperate at times, shooting from ridiculous distances. He needs to relax a bit. 

Playing once a month might have something to do with that.

I think Under is a skilful player with flair, pace and an air of unpredictability. He is exciting to watch and at least able to create things out of nothing.

 

It seems though he is strongly opinionated and he may not always be the humble or follower type, hence why Rodgers is still doubting his longevity here and perhaps why he is showing some rashness and eagerness that some have picked on. This is multiplied because he is getting less minutes - this could become a vicious circle so this is now down to how Rodgers handles him and whether Under can calm down and follow. I hope they can get it right because to me he is exciting to watch.

He showed what he can do tonight, the guy is a right handful and I would love to see how good he can play if he played in more games.

 

I hope there is a plan for him because I think he really is a great left footed RW!

He gets limited game time and is trying to show what he can do in those limited minutes which makes him that little bit greedy, Iheanacho can be very similar. They want to make their mark and I can't really blame them.

 

I think he is a very good player but maybe his style just does not fit our current model. The lack of hard work rate required to defend, hence Rodgers prefers Albrighton. However, other than Maddison/Barnes there is no one in that squad as skilful as Under and no one that can change a game as much in one moment.

As soon as the ball was played I had my doubts whether Iheanacho was onside.

Against Brighton, worst Cengiz I've ever watched in my life. He deserves harsh critism not for his play though, because complete team was in disarray with the exception of defense. But he proved critics right when he didnt assist inside but hit the goalie from a very narrow angle in the second half. Shame, it was too narrow, and there were, though not easy to assist,  but some available other players in the box. I can see he is very desperate to prove himself with a goal.  This time I want Cengiz to play more to get accustommed to Leicester not that he proved himself against Brighton.

The problem was that there was very little space. Anytime we got near the final third any attacker was doubled up on apart from when we countered, which wasn’t often. Quite clear that he wants to do well here and is desperate for a big moment.

Weird that he seemed to almost be playing cm first half of the game yesterday. Daley Campbell was obviously instructed to get into the space that he likes to adopt. Once he was able to get into the space up the pitch he was very direct and looking to make things happen. Still think we'd win more games if he was playing, especially in the home games where we have suffered from an inability to score enough goals.

 

You just feel like something is going to happen when he picks the ball up, we have more purpose and if given a run, much like Justin I imagine his decision making and confidence would improve and make him look even better.

The attack fizzles out nearly everytime he gets the ball, that's what's likely to happen.

Mahrez was a greedy lazy git when we got him, and with time we turned him into one of the best wingers in the country. There's a chance to do the same here, but he's really got to show something more in these final few months on loan. Can't see us spending 25m on an impact sub for Marc Albrighton, regardless of any potential to improve.

I think this is a little harsh on Cengiz.  It looked to me like his passing lanes were blocked and so the shot wasn’t that bad a decision.  Strange that we both see the same thing so differently. 

 

His decision to shoot from 25 m, straight in front of goal, with players available left and right, and a sea of defenders who inevitably blocked the shot, now THAT was poor decision making.  lollol

 

I thought he got better and more involved as the game went on, and he didn’t stop trying.

Quite, for 25m you aren't expecting to buy a player like Mahrez, someone to build up. (Now my backing of Perez condition has finally cleared up, that money feels just as painful as a potential 25m on Under.)

What worries me about him is he doesn't seem like a team player. He's either shooting from impossible angles when there's an easier pass on to a team mate or shooting from 40 yards through packed defenses. Occasionally this will come off but not very often.

       I would imagine this is Rodgers biggest worry about him can he coach this out of him to become more of a team player. The thing is we all love to watch a maverick player which he is so hopefully his decision making will improve over time.
