With the other striking options we have at the moment he is plan a though.

A good manager would be playing to his strengths more than we currently do.

He may be having his hand forced.

Liverpool this, Liverpool that.

You're wrong to say only Liverpool do it though. Obviously wrong.
As you were about Juke

You saying so don't make it so.

It does though. To say no other team except Liverpool pass to feet in the box is absolute rubbish

You're a bit of a pedant. Of course my argument is 'as an overarching tactic'. "Of course" teams play to feet in the box now and again. But not as a philosophy, in the way Liverpool do. However... few teams are playing through a big lump these days. For the reasons listed above. Burnley maybe.

It's all you can be when you read what people post and state it as fact.
Until challenged , and then say they didn't mean what they posted as fact

Even when his strengths weaken other areas of the team?

The other part of Juke's play that we ignore is how slow he is to change direction and move the ball into space and get a shot away. He simply can't do this. It's why Salah can play with his back to goal 10 yards out but Vardy has to be facing goal when he receives it.*

*in general terms. Sometimes Vardy has his back to goal (for Rab).

I think we’re missing the point here. Che and Jota weren’t replaced by similar players. Juke is now our main outlet and however much he tries, he lacks pace.

The opposition mark Juke out of most games so he doesn’t get enough good passes. Who else is going to score? We offer no Threat.

So the opposition can afford to push forward and as our defence and goalkeeper are weak we concede.

As much as I have no confidence in Pep, even the other Pep would struggle with such a weak team. And for that the board are responsible.

So Vardy doesn't have to be facing goal. Even though in the same post you said he does.

Yes. Vardy can't manipulate the ball in tight spaces as well as Salah. Christ.

The only alternative is Gimenez who offers far less than Juke so yes, we should be playing to Jukes strength until we get someone in more suited to the system.
