I know on last nights game Europe dose seem far away for most but I think we can still get it this season. Yes we have played poor in the last few games but from the last 4 games we have gained 7 points playing very poorly so I think it's just a little blip in our season. I'm sure the next game will be a solid performance.

Hope your right mate, but it certainly has been a downward trend since the C.V. enforced break. Need a big turn around and Leicester aren’t the team you want to be playing when out of form.

Leicester will undoubtedly target Elmo’s lack of pace.
I can imagine Harvey Barnes will be really looking forward to the game.
Guilbert would probably have been a better option for us to deal with that, but hey ho that’s not an option now, suppose Deano knows best.

I don’t think Guilbert was prepared to sit around and wait in case Cash got an injury, so took the decision out of everyone’s hands. Similar to Hourihane.

Maybe a more compact midfield against Leicester. Nakamba in for Barkley but in a defensive role, move McGinn further forward allowing him to make those runs into or the edge of the box.

AEG has been unfortunate. One of our best players for about 4 or 5 games. Then gets dropped for Barkley.
He's a confidence player and that looks like it's been knocked out of him through no fault if his own.
Managers live and die by selection but from what I have seen bringing RB straight back in was a mistake.

Feels like I'm anti-Barkley, I'm not, but I almost feel he's let Smith and the club down with his performances though. He needs to repay the faith the manager clearly has in him.

AEG was horrific against West Ham, so I can’t see him getting back in.

14 Feb 2021 14:11:28
I think either his confidence or his attitude got knocked when he was playing out of his skin and still got dropped. Similar to Nakamba and Hause, definitely not a point I'm happy with but I don't pick the team.

14 Feb 2021 14:19:59
It must be demoralizing when they can see other players performing badly, I don’t think I have to state names, and yet they are picked for the next game regardless.

14 Feb 2021 14:25:30
You're 100% correct Chris, he was awful.
But he didn't deserve to be dropped for Barkley in the 1st place.

RB hardly making a case for being picked at the moment.
I fear DS has caused some of these issues.
Why would you change a winning team playing good football?
Would have been much better bringing RB on off the bench in a games we were cruising and test his temperament.

I know what your saying Johnny, and I agree, there was no need to change it when AEG was in his purple patch.

To play devils advocate, AEG only got his chance through injuries, the team was winning and playing phenomenal football when these injuries occurred, so is it not fair to return the players from that side, when they are fully fit?

As I said I agree with your point, but there is more too it. Personally I would of kept AEG for the City game (the one he was first dropped from) and if he wasn’t performing, then switched to Barkley after half time or so, but then I can admit, hindsight is a beautiful thing.

Absolutely. Easiest game in the world from the keyboard 😁.

Glad someone else sees that point Trinity😂.
