Why does Robbie Savage dress like a middle aged school headmistress? Today his Zara duffle coat was complemented by a pair of Kossock style balloon trousers and big girl ankle boots ??

Youri Tielemans

Is becoming one of the most complete midfielders in the league

Tielemans is such a good player. Technically superb, great on the ball and captain today so clearly has plenty of respect in the dressing room. Top midfielder.

Fantastic effort from the Bees, solid & professional & that bit better from Leicester. Dodgy by Tielemans, mind you. I hope we don't see too much of that from him.

I hope we do see the Bees in the Prem soon. Like, next season!

Fabulous from the Foxes when they switched on. Hard to play against when they click. Valiant effort from Bees. They’re a smashing little club who may well be destined to be a smashing bigger club in the next few years.
125
24/01/2021 18:30:47 4 2
bbc
17.5k new stadium and not a possibility of adding one extra seat given the constraints of the ground, suggests they will never be a smashing big club. Nevertheless, they seem to do things well and hope they get to have their one season in the top flight soon.

Very good first half from Brentford and they had me worried. Whatever was said at half time certainly seemed to work.
Thought our penalty looked a little soft, but I also thought it was a penalty.
If you'd asked Brighton and Leicester fans if they'd take a game against each other to reach the quarter finals, both would have taken it.
Unlucky for a weakened Brentford. I'd like them to get promoted

Flair players have struggled to be selected as they don't fit in to the system that countless England managers (or the hierarchy) seem to want to play. Matt Le Tissier should have played dozens of times for England and the team should have been built around him. Other flair players including Frank Worthington similarly sidelined for the last 50 years.

He simply does not fit Southgate’s player profile....plus he is a bit of a lad. Although that said ,so are Walker, Foden & even” Jack the lad”. Harvey Barnes is more in the Southgate quiet “ approach”.

Grealish can do whatever Maddison can do and more. We have other midfielders who work harder. No room for him. If he ever starts then we’re desperate.

Although I don’t think he did anything wrong, Southgate didn’t like it when Maddison went to play poker after being released from the England squad a couple of years ago.

Plus while he’s been good for a while, there hasn’t been an England squad when he’s been playing at this level.

If he’s not in the next squad it will be strange, but so far, even as a City fan, I can understand why

I had no particular interest in the result but that was an absolute dive by Tielemans for the penalty. The only contact was with his own leg and certainly not with the brentford player. It depresses me that premier league referees are so easily conned. Shame that VAR is not at every ground.
21
24/01/2021 16:34:58 5 3

Incorrent. If you watch the replays he simply twisted his ankle and tripped himself up effectively. You could see from his reaction - he jumped straight up, not expecting a penalty.

Decent showing from Brentford and fair play to them and their capable team. Professional performance by Leicester in the second half, I can see them doing well in this comp and the premier league, good mix of youth (Barnes, Thomas, Maddison etc) and experience (Vardy, Schmeichel, Evans etc) good luck to Brentford but Leicester just too strong in the second half today.

In a non contact sport and diving everytime any Brentford player got near him. Today's players are praised as great players - but it has become a non contact BORING game. You have players stepping out of the way if the likes of Maddison as they threaten to dive if a player comes near them. KDB is a great player - where no one tackles him. Most of KDB's passes go to the opposition if you watch.??

Flair players have struggled to be selected as they don't fit in to the system that countless England managers (or the hierarchy) seem to want to play. Matt Le Tissier should have played dozens of times for England and the team should have been built around him. Other flair players including Frank Worthington similarly sidelined for the last 50 years.

I don’t understand how a competition can have VAR at some games but not others. VAR clearly affects decisions, and, therefore, results of games. So how can it be fair to have only some games with VAR. All or none, surely.

Leicester fans not bitter, just sick of supporters of other teams slagging our team and not accepting the fact that we have broken into the top six ( on performance not past glory's (.

For the sake of everyone - Leicester fans please stop pretending that Maddison is a top talent. It’s getting boring.

I'm a Villa fan & I'd like to congratulate you on winning the most stupid comment of the month award
mb 17.25 - why should he be a Villa fan for saying that? If its because someone once said something unkind about him on here? so you judge a club by what people say on here? if so how stupid must all your clubs fans be?! If its simply that you don't like us then good we're doing something right!
