I think that’s our strongest 11 at the minute. I’d go with this tomorrow.

The only option I think we have is playing Barnes in the middle behind Vardy and play Albrighton on the left, leaving Ihenacho on he bench. That would at least give us an attacking option off the bench which Rodgers does seem to favour.
Square pegs in square holes for me. Just as shifting YT forward failed midweek, I wouldn't risk fucking about with where our current most effective attacker has been playing. Even trying Nacho would be less risky IMHO. Never thought I'd be writing that!

I agree but long contracts for "average" signings have hindered us hugely too. It's a very fine balance and doesn't just happen unfortunately. Luckily Top and Co know that....
Agreed, but ropey signings are part of the transfer game. We should be thankful that we don't waste £Ms like wetspam and others have done so spectacularly. Ghezzal is hopefully the last of the rubbish to be disposed of – our recent record is great, but we need to accept that 2 good 'uns out of 3 is a very very successful rate.
More JJs is a the perfect way forward with a 'rolling squad' – a relatively-modest fee and seemingly a very modest starting salary until they prove their worth after a year or two of our coaching and development...

Barnes is our most potent threat at the minute. I doubt that BD would risk switching his position after that disastrous attempt with Tielemans on Thursday

Ian would probably give support to Vardy and not have him kicking the boards and wishing he'd gone arsenal.
So one game tomorrow would cause JV to reverse his already-declared opinion that he was right to stay at City for the past four and a half years? Yeah right, of course... :rolleyes:

A game of ‘firsts’ today, Brendan starts with 2 strikers, we score early on, from a corner, yes directly from a corner, a bullet header from Evans, Brendan make substitutions at half time, we keep a clean sheet and do the double over The Arsenal for the first time since since since ahhhh yawwwn, there goes my alarm I had better wake up, got to pick up an old staircase from a job I start next week and chop it up for the log burner before the game... 😳👍

Cresta! what def hook were we drinking
Taking us apart at the mo, dillying about on the edge of the area will be fatal

Can’t expect anything with so much looking wrong.
As a whole unit we look totally & utterly spent.
Add to that vardy is clearly still injured as is ricardo as is ndidi.
Ndidi has not looked right for the last 3/4 games & has been the worse player on the pitch & to be fair there is plenty of competition.
& for #### sake get rid of the zonal marking shit. How many chances do the opposition need in every game for it to be changed?

With Vardy so badly out of form/fitness the Arse have little to fear when they push forward as long as they mark Barnes tightly.
