Praet?? Dennis has made some really good off the ball runs and if we weren’t set up so negative he’d have seen a lot more of the ball in dangerous areas

Maybe so, but we been someone to take more risks going forward.

Issue with that in this age is any slight flick off an arm is a penalty. 

 

That's no less likely to happen if you're turning your back tbf

For all their possession and territory, one stunning goal and a couple of shots straight at Schmeichel. We've not been carved open too often. Think playing this deep isn't helping but we do have a threat on the break.

^This.

 

Now we do have to be careful, if we are behind with ten minutes to play these tactics will get us nowhere. But this "blueprint" has been proven to work against Man City. Harvey Barnes alone can beat every one of their back 4!

 

Playing deep is necessary but agree that if we sit too deep it invites too much pressure on. So we need to find the balance. For what it's worth you can hear Evans and Rodgers shouting "push up!" when we are defending.

It's harsh to blame Justin for the goal, he heads it away. He could've headed it behind maybe but easy to say when someone pings it in top corner. Problem was the space Mahrez had.

Justin was at fault for two goals last Sunday.. the sooner chestnuts  gets to LB and Riccy P gets fit the better, JJ simply isn’t good enough, not to say he won’t become good enough ofcourse.

I don't mind these tactics if you actually carry some threat on the break. The first 20 minutes were pitiful. We've picked up some real belief since then though and realised we can hurt them.

Souness said we were fabulous :cool:

We were. Our heads didn't go down after the Mahrez worldie. We fought back.

Is Castagne playing?? We've done absolutely nothing down the right. (not knocking him, we seem to be focused on Barnes and JJ's speed down the left) 

That's more to do with the way the game has been going. Was just trying to make the point that Walker is shite.

These kind of tactics look negative but they can also be effective, fans may not like us playing this way but it’s worked so far.

 

I’d just like to see us be more aggressive with our pressing game.

 

But this game is all about patience :thumbup:

Spot on, it’s against Man City who will have the ball more often than not and their pressing is second to non. Our tactic will be to break that press and counter attack, we did and this led to the goal. While this may ‘look crap’ it’s tactical against the superior side. We didn’t panic once conceded and got on with our game. Better pressing from us mind...

Leicester fans: "Our corners are shit", "might as well give Man City a GK", "didn't we last score from a corner in 1998"?

 

Also Leicester fans when the ref blows for HT early: "**** YOU REF YOU'RE WORSE THAN HITLER"

Probably not worse. But definitley on par

Team talk has got to be more positive... take Praet off and out Madders on. And look to get Vardy and Barnes running in behind. What’s the point in sitting back when you can force their defenders to run the other way.... once we did Walker ****s up.... come on boys, liven up.

Feels appropriate to bring up this past, infamous, footballing commentary in response;

Shame we've very little pace on the bench to take this to them when the time is right. 

Blame it on Congerton for not getting Under signed a few weeks earlier:)
