Vardy ruled out for "a few weeks"

I'm certainly not going to criticise, because finding any window would have been a nightmare, but i'd be inclined to say Palace, Newcastle, Stoke, Southampton might have been a better window than what we have coming up??

But would you have been happy with his ineffective displays nursing an injury up until then, because clearly something has been effecting his levels. 

 

He will win us more points later by having it now, than waiting and potentially making it worse in the meantime.

A bit of straw clutching: he had a similar op around this time in ‘that’ season and was back within a fortnight 

Yes, I was thinking the same thing.

Here's Rodgers' comments on coping without him:

“We’ve played without Jamie before and scored and won. He’s contributed to the team over these past few weeks even if he hasn’t scored. When you don’t have one of the top strikers in the league, it’s always going to be disappointing. It’s not overly concerning. It’s our best chance of getting him back. Ayoze Perez is a natural striker. He doesn’t threaten the backline as quickly as Vardy, but he’s a great finisher. I‘ve got Kels who can offer a threat too."

 

I think that is why we are in the market for a no.10 - Perez is going to lead the line for a few weeks which leaves us short for Maddison cover.

 

Perez

Barnes Maddison Albrighton

 

with Iheanacho, Gray, AM, Under in reserve

Have we signed Antony Martial?

We’ve got big results in games against Newcastle, Southampton and Chelsea - In games where he didn’t turn up or take chances.

 

Kel and Perez to battle out for the striker spot. Barnes and Madders to carry on supporting. We’ll be fine.

I imagine this will see him out to around the Liverpool home game on the 13th.


Worth doing now before Europa League starts up again, been obviously bothering him for weeks.

 

Massive chance for Ayoze and Kelechi to fight it out for that spot

This is good in the long term IMO. Vardy's form has dropped off, and he's missing chances that he usually converts with relative ease. Hopefully this operation will get back the golden boot version of Vardy that will finish out the season for us. 

 

However, in the next couple weeks, I think Perez comes in. 

 

Perhaps:

 

           Barnes - Perez - Albrighton

                       Maddison

                 Ndidi - Tielemans

Justin - Evans - Fofana - Castagne 

 

or:

 

                   Barnes - Perez

                        Maddison

                    Ndidi - Tielemans

Justin - Evans - Fofana - Soyuncu - Castagne

Wonder if we'll change systems to accomodate this. I would absolutely love Kel to get 4 or 5 games and find some kind of form. 

 

Do we go 3 4 1 2

Schmeichel

 

Soy

Fofana

Evans

 

Castagne

Tielemans

Ndidi

Justin

 

Maddison

 

Barnes

Nacho/Perez

Perez for Vardy upfront.

 

Given Perez is not Vardy, we don’t need Albrighton as much. Bring Under in for Albrighton. Keep Barnes on the left.

 

Slowly introduce Ricardo at RB and move Castagne to left.

I think its bad enough news without trying that again.

Think we might be better off switching up to a 3-5-2 or even a 4-4-2 temporarily. The 3-5-2 looks more tempting now we've got more attacking options at full back again.

 

Neither Perez or Nacho cut it as a lone focal point, and both look miles better when they've got support around them.

Where does JJ fit in. 

 

Stick Fofana up front - the man's capable of anything

Barnes up top, Ricardo on the wing

 

Or bring in Odsonne Edouard.......

It’s the obvious answer isn’t it. Looks like this is the trigger for it to finally happen.
