  1. Name a better option than puel

    Dyche would be madness. We've made a choice as a club to move away from a ultra-counter attacking style and to improve our possession game. The next appointment has to be along those lines. Dyche would be a backwards step from that point of view. He wasn't right for us in September and he still isn't.
  2. Name a better option than puel

    I do find it quite funny that the staunch Puel defenders refer to those first weeks as the potential of what he can achieve and a good reason to stick by him. Yet no one was referring to Shakespeare's 5 wins out of 5 when he was sacked. Both could be put down to 'new manager bounce' and taken with a pinch of salt when judging their tenures as a whole.
  3. Name a better option than puel

    I imagine this summer will be similar to last summer. Try to get Wagner from Huddersfield, probably fail in doing so and then stick with what we have.
  4. I think we need more of a balance than we do now. There were so many opportunities last night when Vardy or Mahrez started to make a run in behind and instead of being played in, we took 2 or 3 extra touches and it all broke down to nothing.
  5. Also, the very definition of a transition is slowly moving from one thing to another. The 'another' in this instance seems to be ineffective, dull football. You would expect it to the other way round. For Puel to struggle at the beginning and then to start showing some positive signs towards the end of the season. Instead things are getting worse and showing no signs of positivity.
  6. Adrien Silva

    Another case of an expensive foreign signing with good pedigree not cutting it for us. I'm not sure these signings are bad players, I just don't think we integrate them very well.
  7. We are in transition, but I think everyone agrees that we need a transition. I'm just not sure a lot of people want Puel to be the man to transition us.
  8. Totally agree, which backs up my point that at the minute we aren't really creating enough clear cut chances. We have one of the most in-form strikers in the league at the minute, but despite all the 'pressure', he's living of scraps for the most part.
  9. Are we creating that much though? I mean, there is a lot of pressure at times, but clear cut chances seem few and far between. If we were creating that much, why is our lone striker non-existent for the vast majority of every match?
  10. Call me an optimist, but I honestly expected a reaction last night. Maybe because the pressure was off. Maybe because the fans have reached a point of frustration. Maybe because we haven't won at home since January. Maybe because we were facing a dreadful team. I didn't see that reaction. Yes, the first 20 minutes were decent, but I think how well we started has been greatly exaggerated, perhaps because we've been so poor at starting games for weeks. It was another showing from a team that is not being motivated. They looked looked like they weren't bothered about winning the match. How many times did we have a corner or throw and it took us an age to take it. People are pinning too much on this magic transfer window where we will sign a new squad of players that can play Puel's system and that totally buy into him as a manager. The reality is, as proven by past windows, we'll end up with 2/3 players at best that prove good enough to be regulars in the first team. The rest of the squad will be much the same and he is currently failing miserably at organising, motivating and getting anywhere near the best out of this squad.
  11. Puel In or Out - A simple Poll

    Simpson was injured and Amartey was suspended after being sent off against. Dragovic is not a right back.
  12. Puel In or Out - A simple Poll

    I honestly believe if we end the season badly he will be gone. The owners have always sacked managers before it gets the point where the fans are vocally against them and always before the media expects them too. If by the end of the season he has lost the faith of most of the fans, rightly or wrongly, he has an uphill task next season to win us around. I'm still torn on what I would do if I was the owners, but I can't help but feel like we all need a new era that we can ALL get behind and get excited about. It's been so flat this season and the stands are full of apathy. We need something fresh and exciting to unite us. I'm not sure Puel can bring that, especially considering the current mood towards him from a lot of fans. If I was Jon Rudkin (shudders) I would be on the search for a manager that can continue this evolution of style, but also rejuvenate a flat fanbase. Maybe that man is not available, but I'd be looking.
  13. Puel In or Out - A simple Poll

    I remember us being hit and miss initially when NP returned, but we showed sign of progression as the season went on. The next season we were brilliant for the first half of the season, but then fell away from Feb onwards.

    We had a team that rarely ever loses composure rocking that night. They did not know how to deal with Ulloa when he came on. If one of those chances had gone in after Vardy had equalised, you never know what could have happened.
  15. Burnley post match 2-1 loss

    If that happens you just know the local media will try and insist that 7th is back on.
