Shame Under wasn't fit, as I think he would have been amazing on the right and I think would have given us that extra spark we needed in the 2nd half. 

 

Agree on Perez. He should only be put out wide if we don't have an alternative (not Gray!) He is so much stronger in the centre. If we don't sign a striker to replace Iheanacho next month, then perhaps as you suggested, Iheanacho behind Perez, would be a better alternative, when we are missing Vardy. New signing would be best option IMO though. 

I agree, was really hoping to see Under and had a conversation with a mate before saying I thought Perez would play more advanced with Iheanacho behind but was wrong.

I didn’t have a problem with the team selection yesterday.It was clear the game should have been put to bed in the first half.Kasper shouldn’t get beaten at such a tight angle,and kelechi should take a proper penalty and not a stupid stuttered run up penalty.

BR should ban pens like that IMO.

I agree there was no problem with the team selection.  We completely bossed the first half.  The only problem is that we were woefully lacking in goalscoring backup to Vardy. If you look at the other top teams it's where we really lose out to them.  I can't see any solution from within our current squad.

No you’re right.I think Kelechi has had enough chances to prove himself.

We need a top quality striker to back up,or even play alongside Vardy.

I think the Celtic guy Odsoune Eduorrd(if that’s how you spell it)Would fit the bill and wouldn’t be stupid money.

As a manager you play in a certain way and pick your team. You hope your team can control the game, while creating chances and limiting your opponents.

Football fortunatly carries an element of luck, without it, it would be dull and predictable with the best team winning all the time.

Yesterdays team was perfectly good enough to have won comfortably, we missed chances and they scored from a position 9 out of 10 times you won't.

 

We're not perfect but not too bad either, I would have hoped we would have created more with the overall play we had.

I can't help but watch Villa and think Grealish is exactly what we're missing at the moment.

 

 

I agree with most of that. I generally like BR and think he's a good fit for the club. One thing i think he could improve on I would say  judging by what happens often after half time is his half time talks could be improved. Hodgson said his talk was apoplectic so it should have been. BR is not naturally an emotional type and the team played well first half (v.a poor team) but he could have been a bit apoplectic too. He should have been quite emotional about bossing the half and failing to score. I hope he took the chance while he was at it to tell Nacho I don't want those sort of penalties again and made sure the rest of the penalty takers were listening. Run up normally on a line with the centre of the goal and hit it almost as hard as you can for the corner of the net you fancy. I also hoped the changes would mean we scored from a corner at last. No ,still that "Southgate huddle". A final piece of advice might have been "They'll have had a rollicking. Watch out for the first twenty minutes" A good talking too might have had us playing as we did in the final twenty minutes. for the whole 2nd half.  Maybe he could have said I'm sending Vardy on after ten minutes and if I have to do that I'm going to be very annoyed. Anything to get the tempo up. 

 

'course  I'm only guessing.but I suspect he was out talked by Hodgson, which given Hodgson should n't happen. Too much well played lads and not enough "Good stuff lads. Why have n't you scored at least a couple."

Soyuncu and Ricardo will feel like two new signings.

 

Our starting line up at Palace would walk The Championship.

 

A point takes us second in the PL - in a season where we've been ravaged by first team injuries and also into the UEL KO stages - and that's your take???

 

 

Spot on, Stan. Villa have played fewer PL games than us and haven't had six UEL games (inc travelling abroad).

 

Seriously pathetic at times.

Frustrating not to win but at times our fans are embarrassing. 

 

I'd have taken 5pts from Spurs, ManU and Palace all day long, especially when the latter two were 48 hours apart.

Swap the Spurs and Palace results around - same number of points - and we'd be happy, right?

...swap the teams around for Man. United and Palace, gets us 1 point more!!!
