None of the subs appeared to really change anything.
Yeah, I'm not entirely sure he'll get a new contract Tone. 6 months left on the current deal and it's unconvincing at the moment.
It's frustrating Kris because we all really like the bloke and i'm WILLING him to start nailing some of this stuff.
In fairness, Leicester did look a bit more like the side of last season and threw everything into that game so they were always going to be hard to break down.
Whilst the starting line was hard to disagree with it's hard to see what Slav had in mind for the subs
Noble was enforced so Slav went DM for an AM.
Followed by Feghouli and Fernandes.
Suddenly we're flooded with attack minded midfielders on the pitch with a lone target man up front.
Again...in fairness to Slav he has little to work with regarding natural strikers but wasn't Fletcher worth a go up with Carroll??
I'm NO strategist or tactician but that's the way I saw it through my own layman eyes
I'd love him to come good mate but he rarely predicts anything correctly and when he does suss that something is wrong he reacts too slowly. Be-it Antonio at RB, a switch of formation or even a substitution the penny seems to drop a lot later than it should.
