  1. The stoppable force meets the movable object.

    Cardiff Match Thread

    It was offside. Obviously it's handball but Vardy was beyond the keeper when Maddison shot, so there was only one player between him and the goal = offside.

    Dan Roan

    I'm surprised and disappointed as I actually like Roan as a reporter. It's a shame he's embarrassed himself like this.

    Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha has died at the age of 60

    Simply heartbreaking. It all feels so surreal. Our story since the Thais took over is quite simply one in a million - the Watford moment before winning the Championship at a canter, the greatest of great escapes, followed by Ranieri's appointment and the fairytale title win. So many iconic moments over the last eight years. Thank you for everything, Vichai.

    The Tactics Thread

    I don't think it's anything to do with keeping Iheanacho happy, I think it's simply Puel's attempt to give Vardy such much needed support while keeping a back four and Maddison in the side without being completely overrun in midfield. It is lopsided yes but having Maddison come inside while Chilwell covered the entire left wing was causing Everton lots of problems - until Morgan was sent off. That said, I wouldn't be surprised to see us revert to a more conventional 4-2-3-1/4-5-1 this weekend to try and give Chilwell more support defensively on the left flank and an extra man in midfield. I hope we're not too defensive - Arsenal have glaring defensive weaknesses despite their good run.
  6. I do kind of see this argument but we ended up with 10 men and losing because of it. Hindsight is a wonderful thing of course but after the foul on the sideline a red card seemed inevitable. Well we would've had 11 men at least.

    What do you do with a problem like Wes Morgan?

    Well we completed step 1 in that we bought not just one but three replacement centre backs. Now for step 2: phase him out of the team. I don't agree with any nonsense like Wes is picking the team or has too much influence or whatever - I think Söyüncü isn't ready and Evans hasn't been up to much in training. In essence, Puel still thinks that Wes is the best man for the job. Evans now has two huge games to prove that he should be starting ahead of Wes.
  8. Excellent again. He's currently our only threat down the left flank, and a good one at that, while not being caught out defensively. Wingers aren't getting the better of him anymore either. He's developed physically, mentally and tactically to become a cracking LB. Now he has to work on getting his delivery consistent. We should be proud to have him come through our system.

    Nathaniel Clyne - Reported January target

    Yes please. If we're not going to play Pereira at RB then we need a replacement for Amartey, and he fits the bill perfectly.
  10. It's such a shame that Wes got sent off when he did because I thought up until that point in the second half our second goal was a matter of time. We were finding huge spaces between their midfield and defence and all it would take was one well-timed run from Vardy and we'd be in front. Unfortunately it was blindingly obvious that Richarlison had the better of Wes and given we could still make all three subs I was baffled that Puel didn't bring on Evans. Wes is a big boy, he can accept being subbed on a bad day, captain or not, and unfortunately Puel's bad in-game management cost us. Granted the second yellow was soft but I don't think Wes could have had too many complaints if he'd been sent off after the foul on the touchline, so a red card on his next foul was almost inevitable. Back to the drawing board. I don't think our current set up is too bad if we want to squeeze Maddison, Iheanacho and Vardy into a team but it gives us a very lopsided look. Like everyone else I don't see why we don't try 352, but Puel has his style.

    Why the hell did Puel not sub Wes after that foul on the sideline. Shite defending shite managing.

    Ricardo Pereira

    I was very impressed with Pereira and I think he'll be a great asset, either as a right winger or hopefully as a RB. We're obviously a little short at right midfield so I'd like to see Albrighton tried there with Pereira overlapping. Either way, I think we have a very good and talented player on our hands.

    Transfer Window Poll

    I think it's been a strange window. On the one hand, we signed Evans, Maddison and Pereira early - all three of which look excellent signings on paper. We've then bolstered our defence further with two young, very promising CBs to sort us for the next few years. We've done pretty well with the Musa and Mahrez fees and probably done our best to ship the deadwood from previous summers. On the other hand, we splashed out a ridiculous amount on Ward and signed Ghezzal who's a big risk - not necessarily money wise but in terms of ability. We've done so many things right this window, but then it's like we've let someone else in the club have a go at signing players. All in all, I'm happy with our business this summer but I'm concerned we've left ourselves light on the wings and maybe a striker short - assuming both Ulloa and Slimani leave. We're placing a lot of faith in Gray finally becoming the player we hoped he would and Maddison to step up immediately. Time will tell.
