Crystal Palace 1-1 LCFC - Post Match Thread

Yes we should, but come on, we should have made more clear chances against a piss poor Palace side. 
‘The game changed when we introduced Tielemans and Vardy.

The game changed because Palace changed their own game plan and approach. I wanted Youri to come on at HT because I thought he'd flourish in the space Hamza was getting. As it was, Palace pushed up and pressed us higher, so Tielemans didn't actually do much when he came on.

 

Pundits mentioned after the game that Vardy changed it and I'll agree with that - his movement and presence alone takes out defenders. 

 

If Tielemans and Vardy start then we definitely go in to HT about 2-0 or 3-0 up. But hindsight is a wonderful thing and given Vardy's age and Youri's playing time recently, I didn't expect them to start.

Anyone can be clever with hindsight. If Brendan had fetched Ihenacho off at half time and we lost it would have been Brendans fault for subbing him.

 

We were resting players, it had to be done.

...totally agree we were resting players but the Nacho situation needed to be addressed!!!

He was not having a good gaming, his missed penalty and chances had affected him and he was going about fouling players unnecessarily due to his frustration. The commentators even commented that they had a feeling it was not going to be his day after he headed wide from 4 yards in the first half.

  I was calling for a switch for Perez to become one of the striker and bring Gray on the right with Nacho taken out of the firing line. It is not due to hindsight but it was obvious a player was struggling to positively affect the game and we required a change upfront.

Totally off topic but the use of the 0 conditional when talking about a specific game in the past is really confusing.

How did Demarai Gray pull rank on that free kick? Senior players (Tielemans should be telling him to step aside) mans never even got one on target in the 5 years he’s been here. Unbelievable 

That should be his last game for the club. Very bad to insist on the free kick, worse to screw it up.

Thought we played great today given the amount of time the players on the field have played together this season. Just missing that bit of magic that Tielemans and Maddison supply the striker. Fortunate we have players so talented that we can match up so well against CP's first team.

And that was their First Team.

All I know is that we didn’t start with Vardy, Little Wes, Timmy, Maddison, Tielemans, Albrighton or Under and that equated to us scrabbling around to get an equaliser against a rubbish Palace side who had conceded what? 11 goals in two games? Could be wrong there..

Something can’t have been right Stan? Were they all injured and/or knackered?

This is a points business and we put out a side you’d expect to see in the League Cup

Probably along the lines of grays btech cr7 knuckleball technique to get the dip given the short distance

Disappointing result some need a kick up the arse but hey FUCH IT we can’t change the result but we can improve a bit of a rest now till a trip up to Newcastle, Brendan can put out our best 11 for that one and I’m sure we’ll come away with all 3 points 🙏 just really hoping the next few results of the teams around us go our way ?

I think Nacho and Choudhury have played there last games

Nothing wrong with Choudhary's performance. And, would you believe it, as soon as he's subbed his replacement immediately loses the opponent he's marking, who scores.

When the Europa restarts, we may have learned something today from Nachos performance, as obviously it will then require the striker on the pitch to play twice a week against better opposition, I believe we are making QF of Europa, does Vardy play twice a week? i'd rather BR aired on the side of caution where JV is concerned, FA cup an opportunity to try Perez/ Barnes as a striker, we have at least 25 games left this season, (hopefully more) Vardy has to start 20 of those games, if this season is to be succesful, but there will probably need to be 5-8 times between now and the end of the season where he doesn't play, a better solution is needed in his absense.

Maddison - picked up a knock from Saturday?

Castagne - only just come back from injury

Tielemans - has played a hell of a lot of football

Under - injured?

Wes - rested?

Vardy - age, won't start, shouldn't be expected to.

 

What say you if we had gone in winning at half time and saw out the victory and got the 3 points? Would something still not have been right?

If  we had taken our chances, Then BRodgers Management wouldnt be being questioned..

The selected players on the pitch, fluffed their lines..After Top chances were created

Vardy has also fluffed 2-3 Open chances, including penalties..!!

 

A few Moaning now, wanted Praet instead of Maddison...!!! 

 

People just want something to moan about..!!

Vardy, Fofana, Maddison, Under all have knocks

 

Castagne is only just back from being out for 2 months so needs taking care of because then people will moan we rushed him etc. if he gets injured again

 

Tielemans due a rest

 

Albrighton I wouldn't exact say we missed him

Stop looking at Vardy as being on his knees this morning barely able to walk! He trained like the others and played 35 minutes. Hes not on the verge of arthritis! 

 

Rodgers gambled and it backfired and those he was so desperate to rest had to come on to help salvage something 

Sure the gamble failed, but was very close to working. Suspect the staff at the club know the players' physical condition better than you or me.

He's got a run up like CR7 don't you know. So what if 10/10 attempts go 6ft over the bar.
