    The opposition players don’t like him in the slightest if he comes at them!

    As much as you won't like to admit it, Sissoko does have genuine quality on the ball these days and does affect our attacking play. If you speak more specifically about crossing from the channels Trippier is definitely better. But in the middle of the park Sissoko is absolutely involved in our attacking play. I would go further to say for all Trippier's quality with crossing and dead ball situations, Sissoko has probably had a greater impact in attack than he has.

    Damn are you lot still banging on about how much better Sissoko is than player x,y or z.

    You do know that Sissokology is becoming the Scientology on this board

    You’ve hit operating Sissokan level two, you owe us 30m pennies.

    It was clearly a pass. There is no way that he meant anything other than putting Son in on goal. There’s no way he was just clearing into an area.

    See how ridiculous it is to talk in absolutes here? Neither you or I can know Sissoko’s intentions with that ball. However the previous opinion that you (and Scara) have formed, religiously stuck to and now probably feel a little foolish in continuing to do, lead you into ridiculous statements like yours above.

    Why was that pass risky? We had every player other than Son behind the ball?

    Some find it really difficult to change their mind and see it as a sign of weakness.
    I think it’s a real sign of strength.

    Because the two Leicesters that stood to pick the ball up were in about 10 yards of space. They'd have all the time in the world to pick a pass or a shot if needed.

    At best we would have had to coordinate closing them both quite quickly - something that becomes very high risk in turnover situations (as we know to our advantage) as people tend to lose who should be marking whom.

    A shot?.... They were about 45 yards out. The best they could’ve done was lifted one into our penalty area.

    The rest of our team was on the edge of our box - they had all the space in the world.

    Give any PL player that much space (except maybe Sissoko) and they can do pretty much anything with the ball.

    Because we need to continue to bash Sissoko at every opportunity, even going to ridiculous attempts to do so???

    It’s getting harder and harder for the pair of them to do so by the week isn’t it? They’re now reduced to criticizing a perfectly executed assist. Desperate times are definitely calling for desperate measures! ;)

    If they could pick a pass they wouldn’t be Leicester players

    Sissiphusoko could roll lovely little balls upfield for ever and never reach the heights in some minds.

    They were good and I doubt you could tell we were in a higher position in the league from the performance yesterday.
    They are looking better than thier league position shows!
