Hating on DD again. He was magnificent for us last year. we just need to set the team up so that he can play in the way that's best for him and not worry about what he can't do. It doesn't matter that he's not been on top of his game for a couple of months or so.
At least I think that's the logical way to write about a player who needs to be replaced whilst he re-finds his form.
Very constructive. You are one of the most vociferous posters when it comes to insulting the team and being negative but you clearly have a constructive view of yourt own.
*FIF disagrees with post*
Wot ? You'd leave out slimy snake?
But some people are saying what you've just said above for Mahrez, and you (as well have I) have been debating that.
I think it's contradictory to use that argument FOR Drinkwater, but AGAINST Mahrez.
(Unless you're being sarcastic and in which case this is a major WHOOOSH tumbleweed moment!)
FIF rarely reads Mawsley's posts as they are never to do with football. Maws pretends that he's blocked mine so either he thinks eerily similar to me or he's lieing.
It was sarcastic. I even added the last sentence in just in case people didn't think I was being sarcastic and then went off on one.
I'll do it myself:
DD looks like he is coming back into form Amartey is a CD I would have him on the bench get 3 points and we are safe. I would then play him for the rest of the season with Benny and rest Morgan and Huth who really need it.
Drinkwater is the only other one who has continued to be well below what is required since Ranners was sacked.
I genuinely believe he should be dropped (rested if you must)
Shame Mendy is a total crock otherwise he should be pushing him hard for his place in the team
I can't see what Benny has done wrong to be dropped for Morgan. Benny and Huth have done well together.
If DD has being playing with an injury, why not get him mended ready for next season?
Despite what some might think, we do have cover
The fact you started this with 'Hating on...' tells it's own teenage story.
The comparison between the over the top, ridiculous and continuous barrage of criticism levied at Mahrez week in week out by some and the honest, clear and constructively conceived criticism of DD by some is something only you could have dreamt up.
As Lako writes, DD has been the most consistently out-of-sorts player we have had all season both during and after Ranieri's tenure. Had we a decent and effecvtive replacement he would be sitting on the bench.
Waaaaaait not without his spotty bag
Writing your own facts and using your own logic again Pop.
DD has had as much criticism over the season as Mahrez on this board.
Lako wrote DD is the only other one - saying that he was the same as Mahrez.
We have other midfielders who can replace him whilst he "gets fit" Amartey and King for a start. You are aware that replaced him last time he was injured aren't you?
And to correct you biggest fault of all I'm a defender of both Mahrez and Drinkwater but realise they both need to be dropped to re-find their form.
No he's playing too.
Yes, I am aware of the replacements. One was awful for the most part, the other a defendwr who was tolerable at times but went AWOL at others. I wouldn't trust either to play through the middle against Arsenal. If you really care about my opinion, which you probably don't, the only viable option I could see would be to give Mahrez a go through the middle and put Gray on the wing. Could be a disaster but no more so than having a totally anonymous Andy King littering the midfield.
Why are you 'correcting' a 'mistake' that didn't occur? As for making things up, well, Mr. Pot, stop being such a racist.
I do enjoy reading your opinions - you just need to lighten up when I disagree, I can be as wrong as you can. Let's hope we can move on now.
I don't want Andy King playing but even he has had a few decent performances this season. I certainly disagree with the Amartey statement. After adjusting to the league and CR's changing position for him I think he was a very good midfielder. A much better midfielder than he was right back. Maybe his position is CB, clearly CR and Shakey don't seem to think so as they haven't played him there, though I think he could counterbalance Huth pretty well given time to form a partnership - but that's for another day.
With regard CB I seriously think it's time for Morgan to be eased out. I've preferred Huth and Benny and I'd prefer Amartey too. He's been a great servant to the club but when I see him trying to dribble upfield and make the long pass or even worse when he stays up in attack (ala Walshie) it's embarrassing.
Yeah he's been a right embarrassment captaining us to our first ever league title and then to the CL QF.
What a useless lump he is!
I do agree though, despite never seeing Amartey play CB for us, he is definitely the better option.
