    From man of the match against Everton to 90 mins benching against Watford. Not even a sub appearance for Iheanacho? I hope his agent has started making phone calls. Something needs to happen in January.

        “…And besides the fact that Rodgers introduced him on Sunday means he feels Iheanacho is ready for more game time ….”

        “…Nigerians should realise the reason Iheanacho has not been playing is because he was not ready. The reason Rodgers brought him on is because rodgers thinks Iheanacho is now Ready….”

        “Kelechi will play a big role against Watford!, Mark My words.”

        Those where your words only a few days ago. Maybe it is you who should pipe down and temper your excitement with a little bit of caution.

        You were here praising Rodgers to the highest heavens while we we advising a bit of caution and need to start a search for alternatives…but No.

        …Rodgers talk Iheanacho football afresh….
        …” Kelechi has always had poor ball control, poor technique, low Confidence and the list goes on “…..
        …Rodgers has suddenly taught him all these within 10 months…
        …Rodgers knows kelechi is now ready….
        ….Rodger this, Rodgers that…..

        Bottom of the table Watford, desperately needing a goal, the same Rodgers overlooked Kelechi. I guess he feels he’s not ready again abi…? Lolz
