Phenomenal team goal.
VArdy almost makes it 2 with a thunderbolt
Rodgers the chancer, got carried by Suarez then pissed it in a shit league, etc.
He's doing a great job, they're playing some great football.
What a finish
Another great team goal, all starts from Ndidi powering through....great ball into Vardy who lays it off to Maddison
Leicester are the real deal this year and are vindicating Rodgers decision to leave Celtic when he did.
Says it all that I wanted Arsenal to win to keep some distance between us.
Fuck an Arsenal win, AFTV is the sole reason I stay up late
Both Leicester and Chelsea are level on points but Leicester has a +21 GD vs. Chelsea's +10. This despite the fact that:
- Leicester have played us, Man Utd and Chelsea away + host Tottenham and now Arsenal.
- Chelsea have only played Man Utd away, hosted Leicester and us
Yep, they look very very dangerous.
They're gonna need a season like their last league winning one regards injuries though, if Vardy was to get injured & miss a spell of games they could struggle, & they don't have much strength in depth elsewhere either.
Yeah, their small squad could be their downfall. But if they stay clear of injuries I reckon they’ll get CL footy and possibly 3rd.
Such a complete team, and several young interesting players.
Leicester are a major problem
Rodgers is clearly a good manager, he just has no plan B, isn’t able to adjust tactics for Europe and comes across as a bit of cock.
It’s no surprise he’s got Leicester playing the exact same style as Liverpool and Celtic under him.
You don't get into these positions without a plan B.
Leicester also have the benefit of no European footy. They basically have one game per week, which in some respects mitigates the problem of their small squad.
Isn't this a bit similar to the nearly season with Rodgers at the helm?
Except this team has a good defence.
Say what ?
Mane? I didn't write Mane. Or at least I didn't want to. Doh.
I meant to write Vardy.
Yes, he's doing a good job, and he's taken a team that lost their CB rock and pushed them ahead ... but you'd make it seem as if Leicester were crap before him (It was puel - surprise surprise - and they've only really added Perez and Sonucu I think) and that their rise has comes as the expected teams to fight them for 3rd-4th have been shite (Spurs, Arsenal, Man U & Wolves) ... I hope he gets top 4 (I don't think they'll manage to challenge us or City this year) and I wouldn't be surprised if he moves up level next year (to one of those teams I just mentioned ironically!)
