    All of this. The second half was abominable and taking off Iheanacho who was the only player who looked capable of producing something creative was bonkers. I don't know how the team that went in after the first half became the team that came out for the second but Puel needs to find the answer to that question pretty quickly and deal with it. As for Gray, there's no point in even bothering to try and assess his performances anymore - they've all become tediously predictable.

    Have to agree about the poor substitutions. Bringing on James to change a game in any way is never going to be logical. How he is seemingly ahead of Iborra in the pecking order is baffling.

    We absolutely murdered them in that first half. Men against boys, and we should have been up by three or four

    Second half we started poorly, and gave away a quite ridiculous goal

    And then Puel effectively killed the whole game by making two utterly stupid substitutions and destroying our whole rhythm. It was just plain awful from that point onwards. Our two best, and most creative, players sitting on the bench watching Matty James and Demarai Gray play like complete turd.


    Two points down the shitter

    I'm also getting a bit tired of the fact we should be beating teams convincingly but haven't got the ruthlessness or ability to take our chances.

    If our goalkeeper had learnt how to come and catch balls at some point in his fairly lengthy career we would be better off.

    Worked so hard for just one goal in the first half. Then waved them through (started with Silva fannying around and missing his tackle which led to the corner) for a gifted equaliser.

    7th place still looks on ... At this rate 50 points may do it. Embarrassing.

    Anyone who says Maguire isn’t a good defender is watching someone different to me.

    His touch is superb and his distribution is better than all the other defenders we have put together.

    Vardy worked his nuts off and was very good. Nacho was very good too. Diabate had a good home debut and will learn game management with experience.

    Silva was great first half but still needs game time too to become sharp.

    I am baffled as to what Schmeichel did wrong ?

    Ndidi was very good and is very tidy.

    We should have won it by half time but I kinda knew we would need two and that’s how it turned out.

    Silva has his own Portuguese fan club there today which was nice.
  7. Fernandez couldn't have been any more than 5 yards out when he buried that header. Unless Schmeichel was blocked off (I'd need to check on MOTD tonight) he should be coming to deal with those.

    The last paragraph is the conundrum we find ourselves in as Leicester fans,where do we find the creative guile to not only open up the opposition,but to also create space for others to exploit.Mahrez is a void that cannot be filled by any other Leicester player.I think this has shook Puel more than he lets on.Gray needs to step it up

    Gray will never be the answer. He's just not good enough. I hope he proves me wrong.

    We as a Team are the worst statically dealing with Dead ball situations in the Premier League,my opinion on this is we have a back 4 that is in transition and will need time on the training pitch to iron out the problems.Dragovic is building a nice rapport with the Future Captain of England Maguire,Fuchs is a liability as he switches off to players behind him,Chilwell is a young player who will learn under Puel.Neither Fuchs or Chilwell are getting any help from the player on the wing in front of them and that needs to be sorted.

    There were countless times today that we over passed the ball as there was little effective movement or an effective ball to be played to expose their defence.

    Having said that we are still in transition and are doing well in this phase and I am happy for the rest of this season to ‘amble’ and allow Puel to build for next season.

    The above excludes the FA Cup which we should go all out to win.

    I agree but i thimk 7th place will need 55 points, that will still be probably 10 points short of 6th.
    So can we do it? yes of course we can if we can iron out our defensive frailulties and sort the midfield creativity out.
    I think only Burnley and Everton can pip us should we slip up on what is a relative easy run in after the Man C game.
    Hopefully in the bag before we take revenge against Spurs on the final day.

    Related to Michael Ball in any way?

    One other thing....

    You can't play a fucking passing game without movement, and I don't count every player running away from the man in possession as movement.

    A complete lack of players dropping into space centrally.

    I think Puel got it wrong with his subs today, Nacho should have stayed on, James should have stayed off (Iborra should have come on) and I'm not sure Shinji offers much when coming off the bench

  19. Having just watched Swansea's goal again I think the pace on the delivery makes it difficult for Kasper to come out for it. I'd blame the marking (or lack of it) more.

    the thing with that goal is I can imagine the abuse Chilwell would have got yet Fuchs is skating again, he's a liability
