  1. Some fans started leaving after 2 nil!
  2. Mine was a 2-2 drawer at Elland Road when I was 9 as from Leeds. Larry May and Alan Smith.
  3. My daughter is 11. Supposed to be having a 1 on 1 day and the plan was mountain biking, but due to storms asked her if she fancied going to her first football match. Couldn't get tickets as Leicester sold out. Got home tickets in the family stand on the understanding that even if we do score have to stay quiet! So we drove up from South Devon It was a brilliant experience yet at the same time surreal and a true test of holding in our emotions. Her reaction - "Daddy, that was EPIC!"
  4. I went to the EPIC record breaking and equalling match last night. Took my daughter for her first game, drove up from Devon. SSSHHH, but in Southampton family stand trying to be quiet as couldn't get Leicester tickets. Some home fans around us started leaving at 2-0!!!!
  5. That's exactly my point, maybe I should have put a question mark at the end of the title!
  6. My point is that people have been talking about his youth focus for ages now. I believe (my opinion that is) that we have 3 young players who all made their professional debut before puel was at the club, it is therefore hoped that one day they may become regular first team players. Of these players you would say that one is a regular first team player in chilwell. 2 good signings that are regulars, one of whom is 24/25 so not that young. the rest were already in the team and squad, so I just wonder where this image of youth focus comes from.
  7. I won't apologise, I have struggled with this perception for ages. Chilwell - regular in first team squad, yes puel gave him more game time - well done to puel Barnes - loaned out, but impressed so much at wba and we have such limited attacking options he had to bring him back(well done to puel, but slightly sarcastic) Choudhury - should have possibly played more Ndidi - been in squad for 2 years as per mendy Gray - same old (or young) Gray, been in and out of team since he's been here, no change there Ricardo - good signing Madison - one of the best players outside of premier League when we bought him for a lot of money. So in short he's played chilwell (which we all expected), given Choudhary a few games and has brought Barnes back - coincidentally 1 point since he came back, not his fault. He's bought some young players of whom you'd say Ricardo and Madison are 2 you would say are good signings. The rest either not so good signings that they aren't getting game time or not impressing and the rest were already here playing and haven't really improved. So again, what puel youth revolution?
  8. The above also brings me to the Puel youth revolution! Barnes & Choudhary already here and had been expected to push for the first team. Barnes only featuring because he did so well at West Brom that Puel could not ignore him. Chilwell was already expected to take over from Fuchs, so really, is this a Puel youth revolution or just an expected change of personnel.
  9. No apologies, but I am furious! It's as if king Claude's game plan worked to perfection. Start with no striker, have 3 on the bench and bring them all on. I said privately at the start of the season that we would struggle to score goals and this has been the case. By all means change the way we are playing, by all means bring in the youth, however if you cannot score enough goals, more likely than not you will get beaten. You play to your strengths until you have another option in your kit bag, we do not have another option at this time. A striker who can score goals should be played to. There is no continuity in team selection or set up. Yes, we played well and I am not furious about the performance, what i am furious about is our managers bizarre tactics and his constant changing of the team, how we are going to create any cohesiveness is beyond me. Despite the "great performance" who would bet against there being at least 2 changes for the starting line up against palace!
  10. I understand that point, but this reverts back to why we have only 3 strikers in the whole sqaud and another out on loan. And of those 3 strikers only 1 is worthy of a start. That is the managers choice, we are far too reliant on Vardy for goals throughout the whole team and not just in the striking roles.
  11. Probably get shot down in flames but hey ho! This is not a Puel out thread, however his decisions really do baffle me. We won this game because Everton were really poor and they made a horrific defensive error to gift us our goal. It appears to me that he has no idea what his best team is as he changes it far too many times. He should receive no credit for bringing Albrighton on as he should have started as at least he displays and has an understanding with our 1 goalscorer in our squad. 1st half, we showed no idea of how to get the ball to Vardy and the balance was all wrong. Just because we won does not detract from how poor we actually were. Vardy proved today why he should not be taken off as a goalscorer may only need 1 chance to score even if they appear to be having a poor game. (see Cardiff) The jury's out for me and this result was by an opposition's mistake and not because of tactics / team selection or performance.
  12. Written in the stars! Puel - I just do not understand!
  13. That's why you don't take your main goalscorer off when you need a goal. Simple rule
  14. That's why you don't take off your main goalscorer!
