    Crystal Palace (A) 15 Dec Pre Match Thread

    A game we really need to win with Chelsea and Man City up after. I would hope Maguire and Vardy will be back in the starting XI. Wouldn't want to speculate a team until nearer the game though.

    Puel’s arrogance (or blindness).

    We have to remember that it is a long term task that Puel has turning us in to a more competitive team. I believe that there are good things happening out there. Maddison, Chilwell and Gray have all improved at this level. It is going to take another couple of Windows to get the squad Puel wants I believe. I think Jan will be as much about getting rid as much as getting in. Too many disgruntled players (Simpson, King, Jakupovic, Benny.) We just need to be patient. We are 9th in the country. We have been pretty much top half all year and just come off our longest unbeaten run since 15/16. Puel I think has tried to change us slightly in last few games. We are trying to counter again with purpose rather than be pure possession based and sideways. We need to give him time. Don't get this instant instant attitude from some of the fans. For goodness sake even David Pleat had three or four years in the job to try his best before getting the boot if you look at history.
  3. Personally thought we were doing well, but like we do so often, especially against the top 6 we concede on half time. It changed the game. If it was 0-0 at half time Spurs may have started to get frustrated, but the emphasis changes. We do it so often, it is so annoying. I am prepared to give Puel time. I do see good things and we have good players. We need to get a striker in Jan, that is obvious. But also a CM who can make something happen. Our recruitment has to be right though. Can't keep falling to strengthen as it will lead to us going backwards. As for Jermaine Jeans, did we expect anything else from an ex Spurs player and Forest man? Probably not.

    Up next.. SPURS (H).

    Given the squad update on fitness, I would go: Kasper Ricardo Soyuncu Maguire Chilwell Ndidi Iborra Albrighton Maddison Gray Iheanacho Subs: Ward, Evans, Fuchs, Simpson,Mendy, Ghezall, Okazaki I would give Wes a complete rest as he was also struggling in the week leading up to it fitness wise. Iheanacho frustrating as he is, should lead the line as he offers slightly more goal threat than Okazaki. I would also rest Mendy and use Iborra to try and sit and stop the support for Kane through the middle.

    I think we may be pleasantly surprised. We are due some results against the big teams. We are certainly resilient away from home this season also. Spurs are always going to give you a chance and for me the Chelsea manager is showing he is out of his depth. Not saying we will beat them, but think we will get something.

    January Transfer Window Thoughts & Rumours

    I think we were hoping Silva could become that man. Drinky is an option but I wonder if he may switch to Fulham now Ranieri is there?

    January Transfer Window Thoughts & Rumours

    I think we need to concentrate on our attacking options. I think assuming we keep Maguire in the window, we will be fine at the back. Obvious as anything we need a new striker. That has to be number one on the priority list. Secondly another central midfielder as we need somebody who can pass the ball further than 5 yards sideways. I think a bonus and not essential is another wide man.

    Fulham (A) Pre-Match

    We are playing bottom of the league for Fuchs sake. Positivity. We are a good side. Let's climb up the table a bit more after tonight. You never know. A good result tonight and why not have a crack v Spurs. We beat them at home last season.

    Fulham (A) Pre-Match

    I agree. He was successfully taking us from 1st to last in 12 months if given the time.

    Fulham (A) Pre-Match

    At the end of the day these have been abysmal so far. We need to overlook the fact Claudio is managing them and concentrate on our attributes. I fully expect another performance and 3 points. The players and us as fans can pay homage to Ranieri after the match when we have the result in the bag.

    Watford (H) Match Thread

    Wes needs to play well this afternoon. He has Soyuncu hot on his heels and Maguire to come back soon.
  13. Gazza M


    He is better than Chelsea. He deserves a super power like Madrid or a move to PSG.

    Benkovic January Recall?

    Does anybody know we actually have a recall option on him?

    Watford (H) pre match

    I want to see Maddison switched back on and at it tomorrow. I hope he has had a bit of a wake up call that he must get some of his early season form and it's not a walk in the park. I would like to hope that Claude has the faith to keep Soyuncu in the starting XI. I think it's time to ease Morgan out the picture to be honest. Kasper Ricardo Soyuncu Evans Chilwell Mendy Ndidi Albrighton Maddison Gray Vardy Subs: Ward, Morgan, Simpson, Iborra, Diabate, Iheanacho, Okazaki
