I'm delighted with that result. Was a bit concerned that we'd get done at home by a Wolves side that have been hyped up so much, especially after that shaky start. They'll be back down to Earth with a bump. That's twice they've played 10 men and only got one point on the board.
I was getting pretty fed up with Puel towards the end of last season. Now I'm feeling pretty optimistic about the future. I think the transfer window was pretty much spot on (yet to see how good the young centre halves are, but still great that we strengthened a weak area), and CP has a good reputation for bringing young players through. I was impressed by his change in tactics before the 1st goal.
Team performance wasn't the best, but there were some glimpses of what we might be able to expect to see more of in the future, and we did shut up shop well with 10 men.
Maddison and Pereira are top class signings, and in our two weakest positions from last season. They will make a huge difference, no doubt. I'd pretty much forgotten all about Mendy, and didn't expect to see him in the team again. Thought he played very well, especially considering how long it's been since he last played. If he stays fit, he could quite easily be a regular starter. Like another new signing. Gray and Chilwell both played well again. I think both are improving.
Vardy's red was disappointing, but at least it gives Ian a run in the team.
Wolves were unimpressive. They started well, but how much of that was down to us being useless, I don't know. They completely buckled after their beauty of a header into their own net, and never seriously threatened after that. I think they might have a pretty tough season.
We're making a habit of starting home games slowly. Needs sorting out.
