It’s alright bashing Rodgers.... but perhaps we aren’t good enough to take them on? Because I don’t think for a second we are. Their style is one we simply can’t handle. They ran Wolves ragged last week, we try and go head on against these and it would just be even easier for them. 

Problem is, we don’t even play the defensive game well.

Why do we always go ultra defensive against the big teams and never lay a glove on them? Rather lose 3-0 and have a few chances than lose 3-0 and play like Newcastle.

Sorry you're right. We peppered them!

That wasn't my point as you well know. We didn't play anywhere near as deep as today. We went out to win it. Vardy was completely marooned up top - look how deep he's playing today. We were also destroyed down the flanks. Astonishingly, Brendan tried the same against Liverpool and we were similarly demolished.

I’m not enjoying this, it’s rubbish. As others have said this was a good chance for us to have a go with them having so many players out and Brendan has come up with the most boring of boring shapes for us.

 

But last season we came here, played way too open and got hammered. The team’s confidence was then totally shot. Before we went 1-0 up here last season we should have been about 5-0 down. They battered us. So far today they’ve had 2 half chances and scored one. 
 

I don’t like it and I can’t abide Rodgers tactically but I see the merit in what he’s doing.

Watershed moment this. It’s alright looking the bollocks in games against sides we’re comfortably better than, but has he got any idea how to bridge the gap tactically to try and nullify teams that are better than us? I don’t think so, so what’s the end goal?

5 at the back. What did we really expect?

 

Not going 1-0 down inside five minutes to a belter from Riyad stinkin' Mahrez.

 

Going to be a long game I'm afraid when we are set up like this, contain and counter when we actually get the ball. Damage limitation exercise.
