    All I'm saying is that our poor performances on the pitch aren't just down to Emery. Kept saying it in the summer, our squad is very unbalanced.

    It'll take another year to get this right.

    Couldn't agree with this post more. I'll get hate for it but imo we have the best squad we've had in years in terms of ability and potential. It's the reason I thought we'd walk top 4 this season but Emery has utterly taken away any hope of this squad showing it's full potential.

    Right now it's hard to judge any player under this manager because the players souls have seemed to be sucked out of them.

    I'd love for a new guy to come in and get this squad playing because we could absolutely blow teams away.

    Not disputing that, just think Maddison hit the ground running.

    You're right. Possibly because he's used to the pace of our leagues.

    Season defining game this. If we win we are doomed, if we lose maybe the season can still be saved.

    Very Good point Hleb, i was in a bad mood yesterday so hence the sensationalist writing. You are right

    You can't be serious. We already had some top forwards and great youngsters coming through. Yet we bought another £70m forward in addition to Martinelli.

    And then an old cheap Chelsea reject at the last minute to match our already rash CB. They're mistakes are us.

    Emery bashing is easy, it gives a focal point for frustration. I get it. But our squad is also a problem, regardless of the Emery situation.

    I think we'll win this as Leicester are just pathetic whenever they play Arsenal they've only beaten us 10 times since 1967.!! and that's out of 66 games shocking stats even in their title winning season we pushed them around like clowns.

    We truly are their boggy team.

    Hope odds are well against us with the bookies cause I'm certain we're winning this.

    Posters on foxes talk saying how their beaten us 5-1 and sh!t - DELUDED

    The same delusions about keeping players like Kante & Mahrez after their title win. Small club . I know your reading this Foxtalk posters.

    Suck that up...

    Yes I know how you feel about adding a winger, you mention it enough. I said it a while back but I think the plan was always to bring in Saliba this year and still have Kos, both plans went to sh*t.

    It's easy to bash Emery because we've gone backwards in every department this year. I can honestly say if we had VVD in this squad we wouldn't look any better. All the players look confused, the midfield is disjointed and so is attack. Our ball winning DM plays at CAM and hasn't had a good game there yet but still plays.

    This isn't on the squad, Emery would be sat in 6th with Liverpool.

    Vardys fighting spirit just edges it for me. Got that steel about him that I would love in this team. Would've saved the club £80m+ to put towards other positions had we got him in 2016

    I'm still amazed we didn't pick up Evans for £3m or whatever it was he was allowed to leave for as well.

    it's worrying times when you have players like Leno Tierney Bellerin Guendouzi Özil Pepe Laca Auba and we afraid of getting heavily beaten most teams would love to have these players in their starting line up.

    The Leicester team is well balanced and play once a week it help the fitness level and avoiding injuries. their players are talented and young or at their peak like Vardy Evans Schmeichel or on great form like Ricardo who was disaster when Leicester first signed him or Barnes who nobody heard of until of middle of last season and the Turkish defender who is surprise of the season.

    Yeah, of course VVD would struggle, our midfield is over-run every game. What are you saying, it's because he's not playing Torreira as DM.

    So if you were Emery, what is our best midfield combo?

    They only look formidable now because they know exactly their role in the team and those players compliment each other well.

    There are plenty of holes in that squad. Far more than in our squad. For a start they don't have any great attacking wide players. Most of the time Perez and Barnes line up in that position but they don't seem too comfortable in those positions. Gray and Albrighton are natural wide players, but they don't have the necessary quality to be really effective hence they ride the bench in most games. It severely limits how they can play, if you stop the counter attack and mark Maddison through the middle or stop their fullbacks pushing up high to provide the width, they don't seem to be able to attack in any other way. It is what happened at Old Trafford. Their squad doesn't have enough variety of players, which I would say is same as having gaps in the squad.

    At CB only Soyuncu we might be able to say is above average. Evans has looked poor plenty of times in the last 2 years. He is playing well now cos the system is working well and maximising his strength. If he was playing for us now people would be asking why we bought a cheap reject from United to strengthen us. Ffs their first sub at CB is Wes Morgan, again an average CB but will do a great job in a competent system. Again the system and organisation is key here.

    At front. Only Vardy and perhaps Maddison are reliable goalscorers. Leaving even aside the fact if Vardy gets injured they are ****ed. It also again forces them to play in only one way. The fast counter attack or build up through the middle or rely a lot on their fullbacks to provide the width. Teams might well be able to suss that out later in the season and stop them being as effective.
