I was saying it at half time, get tielemans and Vardy on wasnt hindsight just going on with how things were going. I like Rodgers and feel he is great for us but I think that was an opportunity missed to keep things under control 

He's trying to give Vardy a rest, we weren't doing bad. He was never going to come on at half time.

I understand the rationale for resting so many players. However, our next game is 6 days away I think we could have gone a little bit stronger. 
 

I just can’t see the logic of starting Hamza in this game. Personally I would have assessed youri and Madison and started the fittest of the two. It would have made a huge difference and given how passive palace were at the start... we probably would have cruised through.

Frustrating, 7 changes aside the team didnt play that bad (first half was only missing the attacking threat) and how many clean cut chances did palace have?? 2??

 

Mendy, Amartey, Barnes can all come off satisfied today, I thought they werr excellent.

 

Perez and Justin were causing problems first half but went quite second half. 

 

May issue was unfortunately Kelechi who put a stinker (I feel for him as hes scored some heroic goals for us). Playing our our usual shape of one high forward, when he was having an off day needed a change of shape earlier or a swap.

 

Think it was unwise to risk Vardy. Sitting out 1 is better than 4/5. 

 

The same can be said of the others carrying knocks, if them sitting out refreshes the squad going forward then its one we have to take on the chin

I'm not disappointed, I'm just angry. If you have to substitute a player like Gray to turn a game around, then I really can't think of anything else. It's just embarrassing that we don't have a viable striker on the bench at all. I'm sure no striker from the Under 23's is worse than Gray and Nacho.

This has nothing to do with a top 6 team. I don't think we'll play any worse teams than Palace.

This.

 

If Rodgers deserves any criticism, it's for the Tielemans/Choudhury sub that contributed to the goal we conceded.

 

The team he started with should have won the game in the 1st half, they had enough chances. 

 

We've played more games than any other side including Europa League, while having to deal with more injuries than any other side except Liverpool. Rodgers is doing a very good job.

WHAT THE FOOK DONT SOME OF YOU UNDERSTAND

 

SOME PLAYERS ARE EITHER INJURED OR CARRYING KNOCKS OR JUST BACK FROM LONG TERM INJURIES

 

THEREFORE THEY CANNOT PLAY TWICE IN 48 HOURS

Start Vardy, get in front and make the changes at 65 mins. As opposed to giving him 35 minutes today. To all those saying he needs it. HIS LEGS RECEIVED 35 MINS RUNNING AS OPPOSED TO STARTING HIM FOR SAY 65 MINS. So weve saved Vardys legs a grand total of 30 mins had we started him. Still trained as usual.... and would almost certainly have won the game.

Where the problem is, is players like Hamza, Iheanacho, Perez and Praet (the latter 2 less so) get their chance to come in and blow it.

 

Hamza can only play 60 minutes because he's a walking red card. His passing is so irratic, passing to people marked by 2 players, playing ball waist high, passing behind a players stride.

 

Iheanacho as soon as he missed that pen, his head went and he may aswell have subbed him off then. He holds the ball well but we don't play that kind of game.

 

Its the type of performance and disappointment you see coming a mile off and its so Leicester. 6 days now to make amends against Newcastle. 

The way Nacho stepped up to the penalty you knew he’d not score he looked terrified the lad needs a loan spell away to grab a bit of confidence in scoring and learning how to get back to his earlier displays with Man City, whenever he plays you can tell what sort of performance it will be by his posture and the way at times he looks like a rabbit in the headlights a bit of time away may do him good?

What will you say if we lose Ndidi and Castagne to injury in the next game?

 

What will you say if your lottery numbers come up next week?

 

We play in 6 days not 6 weeks!

So when we are 2 points off the top 3 or top 5 at the end of the season and not in European Football you won’t look back at this and other games where Rodgers has had a brain fart over his team selections.!!!!!!!!!!!

Not since 1994…. unless you count other further eduction studies post University…


Bore off…. You’re embarrassing yourself 

Then learn to use words properly

Epic does not equate to having a good game

If you’re an academic then please act as such

I'm disappointed some didnt take their chance. Perez I thought did well but he had no-one to link up with really. Praet was ok but I wanted more from him. He works better alongside Youri not instead of him. Mendy stepped up as did Dan. Evans tried to push on forward too. JJ, Thomas and Barnes did great. I like Thomas and Barnes together. A few let themselves down today and didnt take the chance to push back into the first team. Hamza and Kel were the weak links sadly and for me are well down the pecking order now. 

 

I didnt understand the mentality of resting all of them either. Kill the game off quickly and sub them then. They have a week until the next game now. They can put their feet up, swim in the pool, sit in the sauna etc! Instead they have lost momentum and have a week of thinking about that game and what should have been!

I would be interested to see if anyone else makes as many changes as that, especially the teams playing in Europe. It does feel like we make an awful lot of fuss over resting and fatigue.

Should have just claimed a load of positive Covid cases.

 

In all honestly I admire management and players haven't complained about fixture congestion like the 'top' managers, squads and clubs have, but you have a point, it seems we've not moaned but we have made a point by resting so many.

Not looking to scapegoat, this is a genuine question: what is Choudhury good at?

I guess he's good at being 5th/6th choice and needed in an emergency. But he simply shouldn't be starting PL games unless we're missing Wilf, Mendy and Youri.

He didnt need to chop all the creativity and threat out the side.  Underestimated them and cost us
