    Wolves H Post Match Thread 2-0

    I was really annoyed with Vardy to be honest. Whether it is a sending off or not, the point is he simply didn't need to do it. It was a 70-30 in his favour and all he needed to do was nip the ball away from the defender. A really silly decision from Vards, especially knowing that Mike Dean was ref.

    Puel

    An interesting discussion. It seems a number of people have written Puel off after a questionable last 15 games or more. I've been willing to give Puel time to adjust the team to his style with his players, even through a number of turgid games last season. As I have stated before, I've seen enough promising signs to think he has half a chance of succeeding. I would suggest that nobody can be completely confident with Puel and the jury must still be out but surely we go in to the season with optimism until we have it knocked out of us by poor performances and results. You never know. It might not be that bad!

    The Riddle in the Puzzle Wrapped in a Conundrum

    Great OP! Despite the awful performance on Saturday, not much has really changed. Those who believe Puel should be given time to get his own players should still believe this. That said, the decision to bring Morgan back in does worry me. I cannot think of a reasonable explanation for this. I watched the the game against Palace and while things did conspire against a little in the second half, we cannot continue to start games so slowly. My biggest worry with Puel is that some players really aren't trying for him. Maybe there is no way back once this happens. I guess it depends on the amount of players and how important they are to our future development. One thing I would add is this craving from our fans (skewed by our season of miracles) for this exciting, attacking football is perhaps a little idealistic. I've just watched Man Utd v Arsenal (two of the big six) and it was dull. The facts are that other than Man City, Liverpool and maybe Spurs, there really aren't any other teams doing this with an consistency. Ask any manager if they want to play brilliant, attractive, free flowing football and I am positive all would say yes. Clearly it's not that simple without an exceptional squad of players. Obviously, there is a tremendous amount to improve on but I have seen enough from Puel to think he has a chance of succeeding.
  4. Soccer Saturday is about to start. Brace yourselves for some balanced discussion from the 'experts' about Leicesters treatment of Riyad.

    Watford (H) post-match thread (2-0 home win)

    To come away from that match and be negative is just strange. I guess that is just a reflection of people's personalities. Personally I was a little frustrated for parts of that match. First half was a little pedestrian and second half, we were wasteful after a number of opportunities to kill the came off but the positives out away the negatives by such a long way. We we have genuine quality in every department. The likes of Amartey and Dragovic came in and did an excellent job. We can certainly look for areas of improvement but to moan about that performance (and the majority of performances under Puel) is odd. As some have already said, if you've watched city for any length of time you must appreciate the football we are currently watching.

    Chilwell is amazing

    I’m not suggesting he is as good as Bale or ever will be but he has all the attributes to be a very successful premier league footballer, hopefully for us.

    Chilwell is amazing

    There really has been some ridiculous criticism of Chilwell. I've followed his career from his academy days (as he played in the same academy side as my friends son) and he was head and shoulders above anyone else at that level. Anyone with even a modicum of football intelligence can see he is a Roll's Royce of a player. The way he glides across the pitch reminds me very much of Gareth Bale and his ability to maintain his pace while running with the ball. Still got got things to learn? Definitely but I believe he will be left back for England one day.

    Chelsea Post Match 0-0

    Really good performance. Dominating Chelsea’s midfield is a sign we are on the right track. I think we can all agree that I our progression under Puel continues (well nearly all).

    Chelsea (A) pre-match

    I give us half a chance today. Got a fiver on at 18-1 for Leicester win and both teams to score so it may be more blind hope than realistic expectation. We do have a chance though, don't we? Please somebody tell me have at least a chance of winning.
