Slimani &Musa are shocking ...
Armarty and Gray should have been put on.
Slimani is terrible and Musa just looks lost with his team mates .
Pls don't play them anymore .
Huth &Benny did well against a very dominate forward in Carrol .. he is an excellent target man .
It was like playing with 9 men for the last 20 mins ...
Why do we do okay till 60-70 mins then shit ourselves for the last qrtr.
And ... that place isn't a " football ground" with atmosphere ,,, bring back Upton Park !!!
But hey ,,,, 3 pts ✔
What a pro
Yes he is.
Same with Slimani I'm sure.
This is exactly how I feel about them. Keep them in the summer, unless China come in with silly money again.
I've not seen any of the match so not my opinion but I've read and heard that in the first half we were as good as some of last season and we played like champions.
But then as fans we're always seeking more from the team on here, whatever the result !
We were excellent first half even if you remove the goals. We were sharp, incisive and our 1-2's were great. We were a match for anyone.
Unfortunately the effort we put in midweek caught up with us after about 10 minutes of the second half.
In spite of this we hung on for a win somehow which was an excellent result.
Once again everyone put in a shift which will carry us when 1-2 players aren't playing well.
Delighted with the result and I'm sure Shakey advised them to give it all ahead of a weekend off followed by two home games.
It's agreed. No issue with Musa, no doubt his confidence is shot, tho It was a strange sub to make at that stage of the game, with crosses flying in and Amartey on the bench... Can only think it was a positive attempt to stretch the game with his pace. Anyhow main thing is the #fearless Foxes are back.
Just seen Kasper's save from Carroll at the end of the match. Absolutely superb.
And some people think we can upgrade?
Not just Kasper's save tbh - Albrightom's assist for our 2nd was pure filth. If Zidane had done that in his prime people would be pouring over it for months.
Can't believe he's never been capped for England yet Jesse Lingard and Andros Townsend have.
Albrighton gives his all and has the perfect attitude. He's the very epitome of what makes us us; more than the sum of our parts, punching above our weight, however you want to describe it.
However on some occasions, particularly defensively, he makes a rash choice. I think it's in his enthusiasm to get the ball forward.
Dog owners might know this expression: 'tail up, brain out'. It's when a dog is so enjoying itself (typically, its tail is up when it's having fun) that it becomes a bit daft.
I think Albrighton needs sometimes to check his enthusiasm and desires to keep the pressure on and think about that cross field ball. Invariably there's a safer albeit square ball on.
60 minutes is when Okazaki's batteries run flat and he has to come off!
Funny how a few weeks ago people were desperate for Slimani to come back and be our main striker - now from 2 sub appearances he's apparently shit!
Slimani has done alright, not spectualar but alright. Musa has been poor but hasn't had any consistent run and seems to be used in a different role every time he comes on.
Slimani I think will play an important part still. Musa may move on in the summer but I think he could be a good player given time
Question for those who went to the game - what was the stadium like?
A lot has been said about it, so I'm genuinely interested to hear what people thought about it.
Rubbish. Miles away from the pitch. Not much atmosphere.
It's Not a football stadium
Was at the East stand sitting firmly on my hands. Needed binoculars to see any details, it was so distant. It was weird. Hardly any atmosphere. Heard the away supporters well throughout though. Apart from in the squeeky bum period towards the end.
