I don't see a lot going forward there. But the team is balanced. I would prefer sigurdsson and Rooney as the 10 and 9 over Rooney and DCL. I like the message that you stay if you perform though.

I don't think Sigurdsson and Rooney can play together, if you want Rooney in and aren't going to play 2 up top, this is how you do it.  You have to leave Sigurdsson out.  I disagree, but it's a reasonable disagreement I think.  I see Unsworth's point.

There could also be stuff going on behind the scenes here, I'm willing to give Rhino the benefit of the doubt.

I have to say I'm confused by the Lennon love. I want him to do well of course. I just don't rate him much and the stats bear that out too. The main thing for me is that he is unquestionably the best player to support the development of Kenny.

Rather have Vlasic over Lennon to be honest, Vlasic was one of our brightest sparks under Koeman.

That teams got enough about them to get a result today and kickstart this season into life.

Reckon were on for a good open game.

Vlasic must be injured... he's looked a class act since he signed.

Keane

Funes Mori *
McCarthy
Besic
Klassen
Sandro

Barkley *
Vlasic

Leicester away isn't an easy game, even with them not playing well they're still on better form than we are.

If people are expecting Unsworth to win 2-0/3-0 away at Leicester then he's got no chance of getting the job

Unless..... we win 2 or 3 nil. Think I'm just giddy again that we played a brand of football that might pass as entertainment against Chelsea. It's not expect as in a bare minimum. It's more hope and hopefullly because of unsworths brilliance

McCarthy injured again ? Picking youngsters over expensive summer signings, this will be acceptable only if we win or play very well me thinks. Brave or foolhardy not sure myself. Pretty dangerous game Unsy is playing here.

What's happened to sandro? Is he injured or just out of favour? I'd like to see him given more opportunities too

Moshiri, in his already evidenced limited football knowledge, could look at it as over 100m worth of talent being left out to prove the point Unsy thinks its poor summer business.

Id love Unsworth to win the next few to disprove that notion. Or would it prove it?

Fair enough.

I'm not expecting anything life changing tactically from Unsworth as he's had limited time with the team, but if we work hard and play with discipline and passion then I'll be pleased regardless of the result (within reason)

You know exactly what you're going to get with Lennon. He's a hard worker, presses on and has pace. Something we've lacked all season. You need players you know are going to give a consistent performance for others to be able to build and work from.
