Title: Aston Villa vs Leicester City Match Thread
Post by: Toronto Villa on December 08, 2019, 01:23:41 PM
I have no idea why with Engels and Guilbert available Dean has selected Elmo and retained Konsa.

Konsa for his extra pace, maybe, but Elmo for Freddy is a bit puzzling.

Very strange , Elmo played well at least v Chelsea but Konsa was all over the place. Trez a bit unlucky

Title: Re: Aston Villa vs Leicester City Match Thread
Post by: Footy-Vill on December 08, 2019, 01:30:25 PM
For Elmo and Konsa more experience in the English game I guess and Konsa had the pace, and match fitness  to keep with Vardy.
Though I think he and Mings will have a struggle.
Good to see El Ghazi back
Bit fearfeaul of that Leicester midfield the 2 Belgians and Maddison along with Ndidi are all rather good.

Hopefully the tempo villa play and the counter as Leicester will have a lot of the ball will see us givea competing game.
I'd take a point 1-1 as really rate Leicester and not sure if villa have enough to get by against a solid team
The relief to know after this match a cluster of matches against some lower or mid table clubs
Come on the villa !
Let's get a win though !
Rooting for it despite the fear

Iíve seen this movie before. We play well, we will take the lead, we will waste chances, late in the game we will get deeper and deeper and concede an equalizer. Then somewhere after 85 they score the winner.
Title: Re: Aston Villa vs Leicester City Match Thread
Post by: paul_e on December 08, 2019, 02:17:48 PM
well we are learning because Mings took the yellow to stop them getting through. The fuck-up happened but he handled it with more experience than he has in the past.

Our midfield are chasing shadows again. No structure at all.

First goal was always going to be big today. Not great to concede first to a take who's won seven straight and now they've fully settled into the game.

Thought we played well first ten minutes, hit the bar and had three corners but our execution of them with Hourihane not on the pitch has been poor all season.

McGinn looks sloppy, Luiz looks a bit lost, Wesley's having a mare, Jack can't get into the game, and I'm afraid Vardy is just eating Konsa alive. They look miles and miles better than us, and with Norwich winning I'm starting to think we look strongly like an unlucky 18th this season.

Leicester to me are playing better than they did in 15/16. They won the league that year with 79 points. Could get more points this year and still finished 15 points off Liverpool.

We've lost our way in last ten minutes. Must keep this down to 0-1 at half time. 2 nil would be too much to come back from.

Southampton many years ago, surprisingly ditched Nigel Adkins who wasnít doing a bad job just wasnít progressing as the board hoped for. There was an up and coming manager called Pochettino available and they made the change. At what point, irrespective of the new contract will that be a consideration for our board.

We can still get something from today.

I am a bit surprised people seem amazed Leicester can string passes together. Anyone who gives them a brief watch knows Chillwelll and Ricardo are two of the best attacking FBs in the league. They have played many better teams than us off the pitch this season.

Surely anyone should reserve judgement on that until we at least play Southampton and Watford in the league, we must be only team in whole league not to have played either and obviously with their positions in the bottom 3 all teams in the league are getting points off them.

Despite all the doom and gloom on here we deserve a goal for the first 15 minutes. Corners, shots on goal, decent passing. Everything people were asking for pre match for Sir Ron and seemed to forget happened at 2 down.

Whole Mings injury and him deciding not to come off straight away messed up the next 20 minutes and possibly the result. We're still in it though.

Fan-fookin-tastic!  Little bit of luck, just at the right time.  We're back in it, having not so much ridden our luck as flogged it into the ground.

At times in that half we looked like a plucky but crap lower league side - the whole Mings thing was farcical, borderline unprofessional.  But we did also look decent coming forward and carved out a few chances of our own.  The lack of quality in the side though is worrying; it's Jack playing by himself most of the time.
Title: Re: Aston Villa vs Leicester City Match Thread
Post by: Nii Lamptey on December 08, 2019, 02:53:17 PM
Good time to score, but 1-2 flatters is massively! Being super optimistic, the best we can hope for is a performance 2nd half and snatch a draw,  but I can still see Leicester scoring more- look like scoring every time they push forward.
We do look better with Engels in there mind
Title: Re: Aston Villa vs Leicester City Match Thread
Post by: Smithy on December 08, 2019, 02:53:20 PM
Yes, the first goal was definitely influenced by Mings immobility, but if you go back a phase Wes avoided a really easy pass to Jack, choosing instead to turn into trouble and gave the ball away for an easy counter.  His job is to win the ball up there and lay it - which he could have done and we'd have retained possession in the final third.  Mistakes like that annoy me more than a missed chance, because it's a simple thing and easy to do.

They definitely deserved the second though, we were under pressure for a long spell. I think 1-2 is a fair reflection of the first half, but if Anwar puts that chance 6 inches lower it would all look so different...

In normal circumstances would get Freddie on but that would leave us only one of Trez, Kodj or Hourihane to being on then.

Two words...centre forward. Their's had been excellent with Vardy being a constant threat. Our's has been completely anonymous. Whenever the ball goes in to the box he is nowhere near it.

I actually thought we played pretty well against a  very good team. El Ghazi should have scored. Might have been very different if that goes in. Mings should have gone off immediately. Yoou don't run off a hamstring injury.

What this does show is there's a long long way to go for us to build a team capable of challenging for europe again.

Think people are being very naive thinking we can finish top 4 in two seasons.

Leicester have been rebuilding from the day they won the title and four seasons on they now they a team as good as that one imo.

Their link up play and game management is very very good and shows why they're above Man. City and won seven straight at this level.

Guess he felt it was more of a strain otherwise he'd have surely come off straight away.

They are a very very good side and yet we've hit the bar and also scored. Massive mistake leaving Mings on and doesn't reflect well on the manager, physio or player. Has any player ever run off a hamstring injury ffs.

Ha! You've got a point there. First 10 minutes we looked up for it but thereafter we've looked a rabble. Can we stop time wasting and just give them the ball every time we get a corner. Such a pointless exercise.

You're almost of thought that a goal actually changed a game somewhat. Something that's only happened to hundreds of teams worldwide.

Shite....1-3. Poor to concede from a corner. That's one area we miss Mings and his dominance from that.

That would mean Wes would have to get into Leicester's pen area, or take a shot and that takesa bit of effort.

If he gets a hat trick, or even a goal I'll gladly wipe egg of my face.

He has to be dropped.

Konsa has been atrocious today. Jesus Christ. He's not alone I suppose.

Elmohamady was a player I hoped would leave in the summer, but no. He's tried, but just not Premier League quality.

What's most disappointing amongst a lot of other things is how poor our better players have been. Mcginn...well, him and Grealish are about it. Mings wasn't on long enough and Guilbert should have started.

A crap performance.

Some of the defending has been woeful. Isn't Terry supposed to be helping with that side. Clutching at straws and all that, regarding complaints.

2nd most losses in the league, no accountability for the lone striker, poor substitutions, most points conceded from winning positions, getting absolutely throttled at home on the eve of a club legend passing away, unable to EVER enact a plan B, unable to get the best out of players anymore..

How realistic do you want us to be?

Smith needs to sit down with his coaching staff and try and work out what to do with the squad he's got.

Clearly the current formation and selections aren't working.

We've got no real threat in their box - crosses are either useless, or nobody gets on the end of them.

Our midfield has become porous.

We've had more poor games recently than good ones - Wolves, Chelsea and today v Leicester. - are we getting worse?

He  needs to review his tactics and team shape and come up with something new -   the current one doesn't seem to be working.

That last the best team we have played in a long while. They were very very good and have been superb this season. Completely bossed us .

Can everyone take stock before conceding relegation in early December. We've been soundly beaten by one of the best sides in the country if not Europe at the moment.

Sorry mate, but this is blind optimism. Weíve played almost all of the other sides in the league, spent the GDP of a small country, and are hovering around the bottom three.
Iíd be optimistic and a little more patience, if I could see at least small improvements in performance, team selection and subs, but frankly, weíre not. If anything weíre going backwards.

Bet you werenít saying that last Sunday. We were crap today and on Wednesday, against 2 of the top 4, but, as PWS posted elsewhere, the next 12 games with the exception of Citeh and Spurs are all against our rivals. That will make or break us as well as strengthening in Jan.

And Spurs aren't Leicester either. The thing that's made me most cross today I'd reading this doom laden trope on here.
