    Agreed about Leicester being a level above Southampton. At the same time, our beloved Arsenal is there for the taking. Forget about predicting the next set of games, we don’teven know where our next three points will come from. Purely judging this through our form and expectations. We are wounded for real.

    • Overplaying in non threatening areas

    • Dropping back into a defensive shape but not applying any pressure

    • Pointing at someone unmarked while failing to mark yourself
    These are happening every week and no formation or tactical system will fix them.

    Apparently the performance was encouraging, but what they don't get is that this time last year Leicester were mid-table with Puel under pressure, they changed manager and are now top 4 contenders because of the change in manager. That's why they're better than us, we've fallen behind them because of Emery. I mean imagine this time last year you'd be mad for being content with a 2-0 defeat to Leicester, but now Rodgers has set their standards so high and Emery has brought ours to the floor that what we saw yesterday was apparently encouraging for the board.

    What was even encouraging? Ndidi should have scored, they were creating the better chances tho Lacazette should have done better but it's Lacazette who's even surprised? It seemed inevitable that Leicester would score. We're making the same mistakes, yet it was encouraging. At 2-0 Leicester were passing it about toying with us, you know like we used to do to teams, but that was encouraging apparently. Leicester playing one and two touch football while we chased shadows was encouraging.

    Like the way you slipped a little Laca dig into the middle of your other (all valid) points, very skilful dude.

    Can’t believe they even dare use the word ‘encouraging’. Damning is more like it.

    Man City couldnt believe their luck, oh wait we knocked them off their perch. Rodgers style is about belief. When you can do it against the best you can do it against anyone. Even then he lined up with a back 5 away to Barcelona bringing in Gamboa for a debut and Dembele missed a penalty at one nil.

    The football became worse because teams sat deeper. Rodgers tried to refresh the squad with John McGinn and Fabian Schar but the board failed to back him. Unsurprisingly the lack of investment hampered him. Lennon has spent the millions Rodgers earned and the team unsurprisingly looks better for it.

    Rodgers is the man. The best Irish coach and best British coach. And he is only getting better.

    Relax. We’re very close to seeing what the next manager does with him. The Özil in/out camps all have their meticulous notes prepared and are ready to go. :lol:

    We did better than I expected in terms of defense. For the rest, as expected. Not enough to sack him probably.

    I also don't want Lacazette in our line-up. Not good enough. Martinelli Auba Pepe is what we should try next.

    Maybe fans need to be more positive. Improve atmosphere at the Emirates and will encourage players to perform.

    You think these are not instructions from the manager? He is a coward who genuinely doesn’t want to take risks to win. He hopes that Auba will bail him out or we'll get some lucky set piece goal & then defend for our lives. Have you genuinely seen us attack while having a lead?

  14. Mate, I think it was soundly proven that we are several levels above Southampton. In fact, we are looking a level above you, these days. Arsenal spaffed all that money on that flash stadium, and left little to keep up the standard of your squad. Every year you miss out on the Champions and first three loosers league money, you drop further behind. Its gonna take a lot of prudence from your club, and patience from your fans, before you challenge again.

    I didn’t bother watching as I knew we were going to lose.

    Pathetic manager. I can’t believe he’s going to last much longer.

    He will. Edu is convinced that he is the right man.

    Not sure I agree. The intensity from our side was the highest its been this all season and everyone seemed to be working hard, running. I think Emery told them to keep a defensive shape and stay behind the ball.
    It’s just **** tactics.

    Good point. Especially for the Kolasinac passes. He must have been instructed to play the simple back pass

    Yes, clearly if someone is very good at something then they are never wrong, ever. My bad.

    Looking back at this match, it was disappointing. However, we did play better than we have for a while, and Lacazette had a chance in the first half which he really, really should have scored. That would have made a lot of difference. I'm not cheerful about our current situation but I'm not yet despairing.
