Bournemouth 4, Leicester 1, positives and negatives, player ratings and match report

Brendan Rodgers made new changes to his line-up and kept his fate in 3-4-3, and the first half really gave us hope with some great early possession and after 23 minutes Jamie Vardy put Leicester City in front with a battle in front of goal pushing the ball over the line.

Before the goal Leicester City had a slight set back with a Marc Albrighton injury and Brendan Rodgers decided to replace Albrighton with Ryan Bennett, who was surprisingly dropped from start, but it worked well, pushing James Justin up in the midfield area.

Leicester City kept posession and played well during the rest of the half and could have scored more, but the chances were not really that hot, so ok to go off after the first half with a 1-0 lead and total controll.

What type of pills that were taken in the dressing room before 2nd half is not easy to say, but the effect was negatively brutal, with a performance decline almost never seen before. Jokes a side, but it looked as if Brendan Rodgers was looking for a win and decided to give the advantage to Bournemouth, making a change both in system and personell replacing a lively Kelechi Iheanacho with Dennis Praet and it surely gave heavy effect as the team totally collapsed from the start of the 2nd half.

Long before Kasper Schmeichel made his fatal error that eventually became a penalty to Bournemouth and an idiotic behaving Caglar Soyuncu losing his head completely and getting the red, Leicester City had given away their advantage and starting doing errors we didn’t know was possible.

From the 66th to the 87th minute Bournemouth scored four goals with 11 against 10, and with all the things Leicester City have to fight for, how on earth could they give away four goals and mature and experienced players acting like a kindergarten, it was embarrising to watch against a team in the relegation zone.

If a young unproven goalkeeper had done the error Kasper Schmeichel did that led to the penalty, he would never been given a chance to play first team football at the club again, and surely this should see him dropped for the next games coming up. What Kasper Schmeichel did today as the captain of the team is not acceptable, not at all, and he should be given a break and the captaincy should be given to Jamie Vardy.

The way Brendan Rodgers juggled before the 2nd half and how he was in charge of the worst ever performance by a Leicester City team TCF have watched in the last 50 years, must be addressed and fixed at once with a clear reaction in the next game coming up.

This was a nightmare to watch, it was embarrising and Brendan Rodgers and the players should appoligize and pay back their wages, this was not worth a penny, shame on you all for this disgraceful act of clowning behaviour.

Dennis Praet had again an awful game in midfield, and to be honest would not like to see this player in a Leicester City line-up anymore, seen enough. He struggles heavily with the tempo in the Premier League and his abilities doesn’t help when errors that ocure are killing the team performance.
