How much per week Vardy is on?
Yes we did and the game changer was Tielemans. The latter was convinced by Puel to come here, thanks to his Monaco connection, as he fell out with Jardim and his career came to a stall. Puel couldn't reap the benefits of this signing as he was sacked a couple of weeks later.Just made a point in the Brendan Rodgers thread that Vardy had 24 touches and 12 passes yesterday, but scored three goals. Statistically, this season he averaged 12.4 passes a game, which shows that he's a striker that doesn't get involved in the build up play much. Actually, before he scored yesterday, some people in the gameweek thread were saying he wasn't very involved.
Ultimately, a striker is there to score, and Vardy certainly does that, but if you haven't got the creativity behind you, what can you do?
Brendan Rodgers has two creative 8' behind him, in Maddison and Tielemans, and two wingers and full backs who stretch play and create from wide areas.
As I said, Vardy is a fantastic goalscorer, but I honestly believe if he were here, we wouldn't be seeing anywhere near the amount of goals he's scored because we simply don't create enough. I'm sure Leicester had the same problem when Claude Puel was there.
Tielemans has certainly improved them, but I don't think it's solely that. Puel had them playing slow, ponderous football that very few players in the Liecester team benefited from.Yes we did and the game changer was Tielemans.

This isn't to say that Rodgers didn't get the most out of him though.
I think so too, but both at complete different stages of their career. Rashford, and I guess all strikers coming through in the modern game are either trying or being asked to be complete strikers. Dropping off, running in behind, linking play, moving into wide areas, etc.Hes the player Rashford should most look to emulate stylistically rather than the failed attempts to be Ronaldo
