If we owned Saint-Maximin I think we'd play the 4-2-3-1 with him on the right, Barnes on the left, Maddison in the middle and Vardy up top.

 

I think a lot of this would depend on how coachable Rodgers found him to be. I think his talent is there but sometimes he makes some bonkers decisions and his end product suffers. Bit like Under. 

 

Rodgers has shown he'd rather play less flashy guys like Sharky and Perez who listen and graft. 

 

Definitely think a well coached ASM willing to work hard and listen would be superb.

I'm a bit late to the party, but I took a look at Garth Crooks' 'Who Scored' XI, out of morbid curiosity more than anything. I was expecting to see Evans in there and was not disappointed.

 

It was a paragraph of how great Southampton were, followed by 'oh but Evans scored' then a line about how, if Brendan goes to Tottenham, he should 'take him with him'. :whistle:  I 'aint linking to that garbage but it's easy enough to find on the Beeb sports page for anyone that wants to laugh with indignation.

 

He's the next one we're gonna have to keep our eye on. Media's already tried to sell him back to Man Utd. and now Spuds. lol

First Tweet she says "I'm not sure there's any better way to spend your morning in football" as in to interview Jamie Vardy.

 

Second Tweet she pokes fun at the Red Bull stories saying from now on she is going to write all her stories this way! :beer:

Thats worth 10 rep points for that section alone, an excellent tragic but true synopsis of his joke of teams of the week.

Leicester fans with astonishing comments after losing 4-2 to Newcastle United

17 SECONDS AGO
SHARE
 

 

 

 

 

 

Leicester fans have been keen to talk about what they watched on Friday night.

However, I doubt very much whether Brendan Rodgers and his players will be wanting to listen / read what they have to say.

Some Quite astonishing comments (see below) from the Leicester fans, leading me to have to actually check the Premier League table and who is playing in the FA Cup final next weekend.

The odd voice or reason but the over the top, often vicious, comments are intriguing, especially when you are looking from the outside.

Leicester are playing in the FA Cup final and are currently fourth in the Premier League with three games to go, five points clear of West Ham who have a match in hand.

Newcastle had won four of twenty five games (all competitions) before Friday night, Leicester fans had seen their team lose only four of their last twenty four PL matches.

Indeed, in their last nine games (all competitions), Leicester had won six and drawn one, only losing two.

Leicester fans commenting via their Foxes Talk message board:

‘Rodgers has been schooled by Bruce. Rodgers out, Bruce in!’

‘First time I’ve ever been embarrassed to call myself a Leicester fan.’

‘About 5 players starting tonight that I wouldn’t be sorry to sell in the summer.

Most talented team we have ever had but they have absolutely nothing about them. Fancy pants Instagram posers the lot of them.’

‘I hate losing. However, it happens sometimes. I absolutely hate losing when we do so because we lack effort and application. It’s a cliche but we didn’t show up today. It was a cowardly performance.’

‘Sometimes you just come up against a team too good, with a manager who’s too smart, and a desire for 16th place that’s just too much to match.’

‘That was a f.cking disgusting performance.

‘I’ve been saying for a while now that fans should not expect players to share the same heart as we do for our club. We saw that tonight. All of us would have played selflessly and put our bodies on the line and risked not playing at Wembley to put a crucial three points on the board tonight. What we saw instead was a bunch of employees in our colours looking not to put too much in just in case they might miss out next week. There were no guts tonight.’

‘I did not enjoy that.’

‘Another 5 minutes and we’d have had them.’

‘Absolutely gross. That just shows exactly what we are, pretenders. When it comes to the crunch, we never, ever turn up.’

 

‘Embarrassing. Disgraceful. Disgusting.

That’s Champions League football gone. Again.

Shameful.’

‘If Evans is out until after after FA Cup final we might as well wrap the season now and not bother getting on the coach. That is all.’

‘We’re Leicester, not Arsenal, and this is the Premier League where anybody can beat anybody. We have no right to expect. Having said that, we were sh.t.’

‘Should give the under 23s the chance to play at Wembley and drop this shower.’

‘Absolute horror show from the team tonight especially Ndidi and Soyuncu.

Bottling it again and Rogers should have gone 433 after 10 minutes. Total bottle job from him too.’

‘Maddison is a disgrace, get in your Lamborghini and p.ss off to Coventry.’

‘So disappointing!Showed disrespect to Newcastle and they punished us!’

‘I might be in a minority but I would like to see the back of many if that were to happen again. Couldn’t give a toss if it drops us down the table. 5th means nothing. Europa League is a waste of time and resources.’

‘Angriest I’ve been during a game in ages. Made Newcastle(!) look like world beaters.’

‘Vardy, when you will start scoring ? Probably we need new “vardy” because existing is old guy.’

‘Poor showing for 80 minutes.

Perez made the difference.

Some major overreactions in the match tread.

We’ll go again, just a cr.p night at the office with a bit of on-field game management missing.

Maddison, Ricardo and Vardy don’t look right though.’

‘The thing is as much as I’d love to finish top 4, this side has shown time and time again that when the sh.t hits the fan we crumble.

It’d be great to be called a European club and all that, but is there any point if you’re just going to throw it all away when the going gets tough?’

I don't see a lot in there that is wrong- I'm sure Newcastle fans were delighted when they were near the top of the league and thrashed by a struggler with very little complaint afterwards.

 

I remember a time when Newcastle reached a European semi-final, were still in Champions League contention and deserted their team on a lap of appreciation after a crap result in their final home game.

 

Fans being pissed off is nothing new, despite success and progress.

I didn't see the match and when I saw the result I didn't bother reading the post match thread. Absolutely unsurprised by the cringeworthy comments.

I'm suing her.

 

My comment of 'I did not enjoy that' came with a copyright.

Quite a literal 'do the mean us'?

 

Yes, they had a 'weakened team', but United didn't hand Man City the title. We beat them, at their Stadium. They didn't throw it away, we had to do our part and beat Man U for Man City to clinch it last night.

I'm pretty sure Man Citys previous record over the last 35 games compared to Man Utds record over the same games is what won Man City the title anyway.

Exactly! Stupid headline from so many angles!

Only ESL teams are allowed to win the League even if it is for someone else.

 

The ESL6 are the click bait kings and attract the most media attention. Ironically their ill-fated attempt at breaking away has increased their media profile even more.

 

Sadly clickbaiters are not attracted by 'Leicester City win the League for Man City'

Why are we not being lauded by the media, like Chelsea were when they beat Spurs in 2016? Which confirmed us champions?

 

So following exactly the same media narrative, (Which I hate and totally disagree with) Leicester won the league for Manchester City!

 

To be honest I don't even think you can lay the blame squarely at the media's door for that, we have some strange fans. There was a favourite ever City goal thread on here a while ago and people mentioned Eden Hazard's effort without irony.
