Title: Player Ratings V Leicester
Post by: WeimaranerBlues on October 07, 2018, 02:10:57 AM
Pickford (6), Had very little to do, may have done better with the  goal
Digne (7), coped well- should be taking a few more corners
Kenny (6), Beaten a little too easily for the goal, improved in the 2nd half
Keane (7), caught out by Vardy's pace a few times, otherwise quite afternoon
Zouma 8 confident display on the left of centre- should have scored late on
Gueye (7), solid defensively once again. apart from the break away goal- pressed well
Davies (6), Made a couple of very important tackles in midfield , esp on Vardy
Walcott (6), wayward passing, could have assisted a few today  hot n cold
Sigurdsson (9), excellent display and goal   MOTM  may quieten a few of the flappers
Bernard 8 super start to the game- would have been MOTM but for Glfyi's goal
Richarlison (7).Showed a lot more to his game with his hold up play, lead the line very well and effectively got Morgan sent off .

good game management from the players at the end- and decent subs
apart from Schneiderlin nearly cost us at the end

Harsh. Keane was solid throughout. Got done on pace by Vardy a couple of time, but who doesn't?

Watched the 90 on sky last night when i got in and thought he really struggled and kept getting beaten for pace if I'm honest. Really liked what Zouma bought to the table though and he's only going to get better as he settles.

Can't agree that he struggled. He was solid, apart from being slower than Vardy, which he can't really help. We played a high line at times, which was always going to expose that part of his game. But that's not his fault. He was decent on the ball again too. Agreed on Zouma, I thought he was the better of the two, but only marginally.

I think he was done 3 times for pace during the game and it could have cost us on the day. I get that that's not the strong part of his game but teams will target him.

The problem I have with him is that he doesn't seem clever enough to make up for the lack of pace and often looks s bit lost. Despite this, I can't fault his effort one bit.

Good point ref the high line which I felt Zouma managed a lot better. I expect Mina to come in for Keane when fit and will be interested to see how that pairing settles.

Problem with Keane is that he looked good in a Burnley team which defended on their own 18 yard line so no turn of pace was required, itís a wee bit different when your playing in a team with aspirations to challenging at the higher end of the table and want to be pro active in seeking out 3 points per game instead of 1 per game
Title: Re: Player Ratings V Leicester
Post by: TheTone on October 07, 2018, 05:03:47 PM
think Keane is doing fine and it would be harsh to jib him in favour of Mina on current form, love a centre half with a head bandage too

it's a bit of a dilemma now if Mina does get himself fit, big Kurt looking decent too so we might not see Mina for a while yet
Title: Re: Player Ratings V Leicester
Post by: Jamokachi on October 07, 2018, 05:05:03 PM
Keane has started the season really well for us. He deserves lots of praise given his confidence was completely shot last year. He's a prime example of Silva's man management which we hear so much about.
Title: Re: Player Ratings V Leicester
Post by: sam of the south on October 07, 2018, 05:05:35 PM
Keane was sound positionally, and considering that Vardy is like shit off a shovel he did really well in the main.

Walcottís movement was good throughout, and he added to our quadruple attacking threat considerably. A few stray passes and wrong decisions are acceptable because he is getting into the right positions and causing problems.
Title: Re: Player Ratings V Leicester
Post by: TheRam on October 07, 2018, 05:19:38 PM
Keane was sound.

He was done by vardy once but thatís bound to happen when you play high up the pitch.

Been a massive improvement in the defence since he come back in.

I didnít see the game (I played myself, Iím not a shit fan, honest) but Walcott has had a few stinkers recently.

If it wasnít the international break Iíd suggest a bit of rotation with Lookman in the next game.
Title: Re: Player Ratings V Leicester
Post by: Bluedylan on October 07, 2018, 05:50:46 PM
Walcott didn't have a great game yesterday, but he's still a big step up on Lookman at the moment. Made a few bad choices yesterday, but still has lots of quality. The first touch Cruyff turn from Bernard's chipped through ball was, to quote Danny Dyer, naughty.
Title: Re: Player Ratings V Leicester
Post by: brap2 on October 07, 2018, 06:10:36 PM
Frustrating player is Theo.

Havenít really got his profile in the squad elsewhere so heís first choice, and when heís attacking space heís generally very good, but his final ball veers from the sublime to the outrageously crap.
Title: Re: Player Ratings V Leicester
Post by: Duncs_a_legend on October 07, 2018, 07:38:42 PM
Thought Keane was OK tbh. It was more Kenny that ended up struggling.
Walcott is a step up on Mirallas, but he's very frustrating and makes some stupid decisions. It makes me wonder how shit Lookman is in training if he isn't even getting a sniff.

The targeting of Kenny is getting a bit of a joke isnít it. Week after week teams are lashing attackís down that side.

Some weeks he will cope, others he will struggle. Coleman walks back in, and we look to upgrade again in a window or two.

Coleman's 30 now so I'd look at replacing in the summer his injuries will take their toll on him. We don't want to be in a similar situation we were in with Baines.

Keane is solid (with limitations), Mina still goes straight into the XI when ready.  I want more than solid, if possible.

Yeah not his fault, has impressed me a lot but we can’t ignore the trend of teams overloading on him, despite the fact he’s not like a chilwell so is flying forward most of the game.

Right side now limited to waiting for someone to spring Walcott.

I would like to point out I got pelters for suggesting Coleman be replaced the other week..

Not surely he is being targeted particularly just think heís been involved in games were the oppositions strengths are down their left hand side.

Also think itíd be a big mistake to replace Coleman, heís got plenty left in the tank and we need some continuity in the squad and I also think itís important to have players with a passion for the club. Plus heís the perfect mentor for a young fullback like Kenny.

I don't think we are near needed to replace Coleman and I think Kenny is young enough to be kept around as backup in the hope he improves.
Title: Re: Player Ratings V Leicester
Post by: Evertonian in NC on October 07, 2018, 09:50:30 PM
I'd suspect Coleman has at least 2 good seasons left before we worry about buying a right-sided Digne.
Title: Re: Player Ratings V Leicester

I'd be surprised if Brands hasn't identified a few RBs for the summer tbh.
I love Coleman, but it was a bad injury and age isn't on his side. I don't think anyone knows the full extend the injury has had on Coleman.

I think itís been extremely obvious how much heís been targeted.

Although interestingly, a greater % of our attacks went down our left, than the % of theirs that went down Kennys side.

Whole game was very lopsided, potentially due to bernard being really fucking good, digne being decent, Walcott being average and Kenny being pinned back.

Yeah sure, great stuff from Bernard as well btw. Most chances created in a game for us for about a year apparently.

But arsenal did the same didnít they. The chances Fulham had seemed to come down that side too.

Heís getting targeted game after game.
Title: Re: Player Ratings V Leicester
Post by: Bluedylan on October 08, 2018, 12:10:42 AM
Iím completely not into writing young players off but I donít think Kenny is good enough or will ever be good enough for a top 6 side.

Heís far too limited and as glewis said, plays in straight lines. No angles, no subtlety. All heart and little brain. Not good enough going forward, not that quick and defensively he sells himself very easily. One or two dummied shots, and heís on his arse.

Be a good honest defender for a championship team or a Pulis low block type side. Yesterdayís right back.

His crossing is quite good when up by the box.

And he has a nice ball into the channel too.

Issues are with flat possession both with the ball and without (doesnít identify when to overlap very well) and also if running with it doesnít drive into space unless itís absolutely obvious.

I think Kennt's got plenty of time on his hands to develop his game. He's got the basics, with coaching and game time he can develop into a very good right back. Maybe not Coleman levels, but to suggest he's championship level is very harsh.

Agree with the sentiment that Kenny isn't good enough. I'd absolutely love him to be, and to be proven wrong, but he doesn't look like he can defend at this level. Got done badly at the weekend, and that's not the first time his lack of positional awareness and judgment has lead to a goal. I think he's a championship player. We should be looking to upgrade, but it's not the most crucial position for now....centre mid and striker have to be priorities.

Slightly off topic but Morgan's comments from The Times today are a bit rich , he produced a series of fouls on our players and could have been sent off earlier. .............

<<<  Wes Morgan has called for a review into refereeing after the Leicester City captainís second red card of the season helped Everton to victory. Morgan and Claude Puel, his Leicester manager, hinted Richarlison, who scored Evertonís opening goal, had exaggerated a foul from the defender to contribute to his second yellow card.

Morgan, who was also sent off last month in a 4-2 defeat away to Bournemouth, wants refereeing consistency to be scrutinised and the Premier League to check all red cards retrospectively. ďMaybe the game is changing so you canít have any contact whatsoever,Ē said Morgan, who faces a two-game suspension.
ďIt does feel like any challenge you make, the referee is having a word, even though you might win the ball. I think thereís definitely some inconsistency with referees and the decisions they make, so maybe a review is needed.

ďThe referees just have to be more coy about it. You can see from the playersí point of view if a challenge is a free kick or not and if the players are going down screaming the referees shouldnít buy into that. If there was a panel that looked at them, all decisions might be rescinded but that is down to the FA or whoever makes the rules.Ē

Having been booked at the end of the first half for a foul on Richarlison, Morgan received his second yellow card for tripping the same player on 63 minutes. ďThe referee made his decision off the reaction of the player,Ē Morgan said. >>>

I agree with the inconsistency bit from Morgan's statement, but he was begging for a second yellow, a couple of minutes before he almost knocked Richarlison into the crowd. Got away with that one, but does another a few minutes later, sheer stupidity on his part. Maybe him and his manager aught to concentrate on that a bit.

At this age of 20/21 is it ?   I think kenny is every bit as good has seamus was at that age,  seamus was woeful,  had to be loaned out to gain experience,  but look what he turned into,  arguably our best right back since gary stevens,  so dont right jonjoe off just yet,  he, ll get well better with more game time and a stable coaching system

It was a bit soft the second yellow and if it was his first tackle of the game then it may have just resulted in a telling off from the ref.
But when he's been consistently fouling the same player all game, been warned for it a few times and the player was going absolutely nowhere, he's got no complaints really.
Title: Re: Player Ratings V Leicester
Post by: Shogun on October 08, 2018, 06:43:18 PM
He was lucky he wasnít sent off five minutes before when he fouled Richarlison at the dug out.

The referee didnít look like he was going to give a yellow at first so he probably realised it was Morgan which is why he deemed it a second booksble offence after the previous challenge.

Starting to notice players like Rich and Zaha, as well as others are getting persecuted a bit.

Keown and Ince tried to make out that Richarlison had conned the ref on Saturday. No mention of the persistent fouls on him by Morgan and others.

Seems like players like Morgan think they can just go round fouling people and get away with it. Hopefully we'll start to see players of his ilk die out the premier league.

Post by: Bluedylan on October 08, 2018, 06:48:34 PM
I do think Richarlison made sure he got sent off, by jumping in the air slightly both for the one near the dugout (that got him a final warning), and for the second yellow. And I've got absolutely no problem with that. They were both fouls and it's part of a forward's game to make sure the ref sees him getting fouled.

Brilliant forward play. There's not much the lad can't do. He gave a much more complete CF performance than any of our actual strikers have given this season.

Seems like players like Morgan think they can just go round fouling people and get away with it. Hopefully we'll start to see players of his ilk die out the premier league.
Halsey has said his performance was Oscar worthy!

Heís a fucking grock and richarlison had him on toast all day long. Matter of time before he went imo.

That front four's fucking exciting eh lads?

Like some others, I had been suggesting Richarlison up top for a few weeks now, and I think it was brap who said that was a fantasy football suggestion. I think you can see that it's anything but that, and away from home, it's going to be very hard to stop us creating good chances.

He was lucky he wasnít sent off five minutes before when he fouled Richarlison at the dug out.

The referee didnít look like he was going to give a yellow at first so he probably realised it was Morgan which is why he deemed it a second booksble offence after the previous challenge.

The first booking he makes no attempt to anything other than pull him down.

Standard professional foul but youíve got to think youíre on a tightrope.

Second foul by the touchline was lucky because it was right by the touchline.

If it had been almost anywhere else in the picture heíd have been booked for that as he took him out having been left for dead.

It was his own fault he then did the third foul when the ref would have still had that second one in his mind.

Yeah said myself it felt like the perfect solution to get our best players on the pitch, but it hadnít happened and maybe felt a bit champ man.

Have to say that you could fire the ball out of a cannon into the channels and the lad will keep it in and win a free kick.

When we have to play differently I wonít be surprised if cenk or DCL come back in.

To be fair I think pretty much every Evertonian on the planet has been chewing over the richarlison in the 9 question, and he has played there for other sides so itís not like visionary to suggest it.

Haha. No I think that's fair. I wasn't suggesting it was visionary or original in any way. Just pointing out that you were a bit dismissive when it was suggested, and I suppose, calling you out on that, now that's it's been shown to work really well.

Sorry I donít think I was dismissive really?

I was concerned because when played through the middle for Watford (I believe) his numbers have suffered - but as I said from a purely these are our best players letís get them on the pitch it felt like richarlison up top Bernard left and (for me) Lookman on the right - and that might well be champ man stuff.

I havenít seen anything from richarlison to make me think heís incapable of playing up top. Was HUGELY surprised when silva left Tosun on the pitch stinking the gaff out against Southampton in the cup.

I think LW probably still his best position and when you put him at cf you minimise the physical mismatch he generally will have against a full back, but his pace worked really well against Morgan (all down the left side like) and heís not a GREAT dribbler one on one for a winger so why not. Worked for arnautovic.

I didn’t see the game (I played myself, I’m not a shit fan, honest) but Walcott has had a few stinkers recently.

If it wasn’t the international break I’d suggest a bit of rotation with Lookman in the next game.
Walcotts a lot better than Lookman like, he creates a lot of chances and can finish - hes been one of our best players so far imo

Interesting that none of the Leicester fans in the comments in that article are kicking off about him being sent off. Says it all really.
