    Ghezzal....

    Should have played against Cardiff when they were sitting deep and we needed somebody to create something in small pockets of pace. Completely unsuited to today where we're sitting deep and trying to counter attack. Puel's got his selections for both games the wrong way round, and it's not doing Ghezzal any favours.

    Ghezzal....

    I quite like Ghezzal. Yes he's slow, one-footed, and is yet to adapt to the physicality of the Premier League (although that will improve with game time), he's technically good, and suited to Puel's 4231. For home games against weaker teams that sit deep, where the creative players are expected to create something in a congested area, he's far better suited than Albrighton and especially Gray. I would have preferred him to have started against Cardiff instead of Gray. I like Adrien Silva too, technically good, always looking for the quick forward pass, and playing those little triangle passes with the likes of Maddison and Ricardo that'll open teams up. I still think our best performance, not result, of the season was Man Utd away and Silva was central to that. He just needs a run of games to get his fitness up and adapt to the league. To me he seems a player that would fit Puel's system perfectly, but hasn't had a look in. Very strange.
  3. That would be my team except I'd replace Gray with Ghezzal. If the club opts to persist with Puel that the majority of games will be 4231. With the width coming from the fullbacks, playing with orthodox wingers squeezed narrow isn't working. It needs 3 creative attacking midfielders that can potentially interchange if required, capable of playing intricate one touch football. Maddison, Ghezzal and Barnes could possibly do that, Albrighton struggles with that at times, Gray is nowhere near good enough. Not much pace there but it doesn't need pace against teams sitting deep. The club desperately needs to spend some of that Mahrez cash on a quality player to fit that role to slot in instead of Ghezzal or Barnes, in that line up. I'd also bring in Silva for Mendy depending on the opposition, although clearly that won't happen with Puel. Also, for 4231 to work properly, it needs the option of a target man to hold the ball or be available for the attacking midfielders to play one-twos off, and also to attack the crosses the full backs are getting in, like the role Giroud does for France. Rondon would have been ideal. Ulloa could have done a job if given a chance when we need to try and alternative to Vardy. If it was up to me, I'd get whatever I can for Gray and Iheanacho in January, see if Rondon's reported £15m release clause can be activated even though he's on loan, or try a cheeky bid for Giroud or someone else of that style, and then pay whatever we need to to get a decent upgrade that can slot in to one of those attacking midfield spots. We should be targeting 7th spot and Europa league, and this is the year to go for it, because there's no world Cup or euros to get in the way of the Europa qualifiers like this season, or the season after next...

    2 tickets Newport away please

    ...7800 according to Wikipedia anyway!

    2 tickets Newport away please

    The capacity there is 7800. That leaves 1800 with presumably some segregation which will probably make it around 1500, which is more than I was expecting.
  6. I've been checking this forum almost constantly since the crash happened, but haven't posted anything up until now. I've just felt numb all week. All those emotions of winning the league a couple of years ago have come back to me, but this time they are the polar opposites, and it feels like a part of the joy of that season has been lost forever. What has been uplifting this week though is the response of people throughout football, which has been wonderful, and the way the club has handled the situation, which has been impeccable throughout. I went to the stadium a few days ago to pay my respects, and I was at the game in Cardiff, and what I've seen over the last week or so has made me immensely proud of this football club. I never met Khun Vichai, and up until the last few days I was I was unaware of many of the things he did for the club and the city. It's clear that he was a lovely man. The only contact I had with him was in Bruges, before the Champions League game. I went for a wander on my own away from the main square, looking for a historic old pub I'd read about on the fringes of the old town. I was strolling along an empty street, alongside one of the canals, looking down at a map, when I looked up and saw some instantly recognisable faces. Vichai, Top and a group of friends and family were on a small, open top boat, doing a canal tour. I stopped walking, and as I saw them they all made eye contact with me. I gave a little wave and they all instantly waved back. What struck me was the smile on Vichai's face, it was the same smile I'd seen thousands of times already that day, of a football supporter buzzing with anticipation of a first journey in the Champions League, and it's a smile I'll always remember.
  7. I've said it before, but if Puel goes I'd love to see Jorge Sampaoli. Aggressive pressing, fast transitions and high energy attacking football, just want we want to see. He's got a temper too which would suit those that want a bit of passion, and he's currently available as far as I know after leaving the Argentina job. Did well with numerous club sides in South America, as well as Sevilla and the Chile national team. Iborra was his captain at Sevilla so there's a link there. Only negative is I doubt he speaks any English.

    Away priority points

    Yes, it's a bit of a pain to get it but for anyone that needs to know, then there is a way of doing it. The points built up before that start of last season are added in bulk so it's only a case of adding the points since then which only takes a few seconds. I wasn't aware that info drops off the bottom of the list, I don't have anyone on my family unit, i just add them temporarily when i need to check. I don't know why they don't just add the 2 numbers (home priority points and away priority points) next to the person's name anyway. For any website developer it would take about 2 minutes.

    Away priority points

    You can get their points total, as follows: Log in to lcfc.com Go to the Tickets tab Hover over your name in the top-right and click Personal Details, taking you to you Welcome tab. Under your 'My friends and family' list, click 'Manage my relationships' Select Edit on the person whose points you want to check Tick 'This person shares my family unit', and click OK Go to your Away Priority Points tab. The points for person you added to your 'family unit' will now appear there, but you'll have to add them up. One thing I'd be cautious of is that I'm sure I read somewhere that someone can only belong to one users' family unit, therefore if the person you add to yours already belongs to another, they may be removed from their original one. Therefore I'd only do it if you know the other person is aware your doing it, just in case.

    England at KP Tickets

    Plenty of tickets left, just had a quick check on FA website. £55 tickets: B1 (497 available), B3 (541), H1 (174), L1 (179) £45 tickets: A1 (276), C1 (70), C2 (174), G1 (186), G2 (3), M3 (687), M4 (222), M2 (238) £35 tickets: M1 (261) Presumably the tickets in B1 and B3 were originally held back for corporate tickets or whatever, and they couldn't shift them so they're now on general sale. Got mine in SK3 but Kop looks like it's sold out now. The website doesn't include family stand, not sure it's because they're sold out or because they're not available through the website. I'm going, although I'm struggling to get any enthusiasm for it but it's not often England will play there so might as well embrace it. Tickets are far too expensive though.

    Mobile data at KP Stadium?

    I think there's some rule in place where the Premier League does not allow score updates to be shown during the match. The problem with mobile data not working at half time would be reduced considerably if the club put the latest scores up quickly on the big screens. We have to wait about 10 minutes (if they appear at all), and meanwhile about 25,000 people are simultaneously trying to get the scores on their phone. Put them up immediately after the half time whistle goes, and I would guess that there'd be a large reduction in data usage. I don't want to just see Premier League scores either, they should put Championship scores up, and if it was up to me I'd put up League 1 and 2 as well. They can still keep the existing messages etc. on the screens, just scroll the scores along the bottom of the screen throughout half time. Incidentally, I'm on EE and previous seasons could usually get the scores updates up eventually, but on Saturday couldn't get a thing. As for the 17/17 voting against having a decent signal, when reading the minutes from the meeting, it looks like the club and the police representative spent several minutes convincing everyone that a good mobile data signal was a bad thing (mainly for betting purposes) immediately before the vote, and therefore that clearly affected the vote. You need to bear in mind these are the same people that, at the same meeting, complained about people standing and blocking their view, and then voted against being in favour of introducing standing areas which would resolve that issue.

    Keith Weller lounge

    Is there any difference between the Keith Weller Lounge and the Walkers Hall? I've never been in either but might try one for this game as it's only £20.

    Southampton Away

    There's several hundred left and they're on general sale. You can just just go to lcfc.com, register if you've not already done so, pick the seats you want and and buy them!

    Gray to Lazio

    Yes he was but he didn't qualify for a medal. That's Inler, wearing his medal.

    Southampton Away

    The reason it's not selling quickly is because everyone's waiting for blocks 44 and 45 to open up!
