I'm not put off because he won nothing, i'm put off because he's shit in the market (arguably worse than Conte), his brand of football is nowhere near as amazing as people make out, he struggles to consistently beat the lesser sides (the main reason they lost out to us and especially Leicester) and there's huge question marks over his ability to keep his cool when it truly matters.

It might not be super amazing yes, but its efficient enough. Yes he must be better at transfers I agree but overall not a bad shout.

Training this season is aiming at the hands within the area.

Forget the goal.

This, it is absolutely mental, hearing some pundit defending this rule is mind boggling, penalty is the easiest way to score in football. There has to be a high standard before you can be given one otherwise, it is better to look for penalty rather than trying to score goals.

There were a lot of comparisons stylistically between Vardy and Timo Werner. But what makes Vardy so effective and why Timo will find it harder is that teams don't park the bus against Leicester whilst they do against Chelsea. Vardy is able to exploit acres of space to run into and get the ball in the exact situations he loves all the time. 

Only the big teams will allow us space and as we saw with Liverpool that was Timo's most effective game so far. As we saw against WB yesterday, he's less effective when teams park the double decker. Was still unlucky not to score twice, though.

So surely we should sit back and play counter attacking football ?

If Leicester somehow manage to challenge for the Top 4 again, they could potentially put us, United, Arsenal, Spurs etc to shame if none of us get the act together...

Leicester, Arsenal and Spurs have Europa League.
Everton and Wolves have that advantage this year.

True but at the same time, we don't pass the ball direct enough. We don't have anyone who is capable of playing those long balls over the top for example. We just keep on pass, pass, pass like 1000 times before the ball gets to the front players. I don't expect us to build the team fully around Werner like Leicester do with Vardy but there are elements of their game which we can replicate to get the best out of Werner and even Pulisic, CHO etc.
