    Puel 'Facing the sack' - reports

    Thanks for the advice buddy! Not sure how suggesting a few tweaks to try and help him is a 'cheap shot' Wasn't totally sure what a 'cheap shot' was but that explains it Anyway, maybe I don't add much meaningful to LCFC discussion on this forum so I should perhaps leave the true fans to it.

    No one is saying he should do it all the time or go OTT with it. I'm just looking at small ways where he could help himself connect better with the fans. Like it or not, image counts for a lot in the modern society. He just needs a few tweaks here and there IMHO to help get a stronger connection. This isn't slagging him off, this is trying to help.

    Yep, agree totally, but despite doing well enough to have us seventh currently, which should be applauded of course, the fans don't seem to warm to him properly and that seems bizarre. I'm looking at ways how he can become more loved.

    No one is asking for a friend or comedian. The point I'm making is that he doesn't do enough, in various ways (including the media but not exclusively that), to help his cause. We're currently seventh, which is great, yet the fans are split. And I believe some is down to how he operates. A few tweaks would help him a lot. I'm trying to be constructive.

    No, I'm saying he could do more to connect with supporters which would make fans a little less divisive. Do you have any constructive ways for him to improve?

    It's a bit odd that fans never sing positive songs about the manager, barring that collective outpouring after Cardiff away. Assuming there are plenty of 'Puel inners' who attend games, any idea why this might be? My view is that he's never really attempted to bond with the fans, maybe because he doesn't really 'get' English football in the way other foreign bosses do. He missed a trick at Chelsea, great result, could've gone over to the fans, pumped fists, lots of clapping, little things like that over time would probably help. I appreciate English is not his first language (and fair play for not constantly hiding behind an interpreter) but a bit more charm and slicker communication wouldn't go amiss. I wish he'd tweak his managerial style and we could all feel differently towards him. He's not an easy figure to warm to in various ways, notwithstanding results being good enough to have us in seventh currently. I'm trying to make a constructive point, trying to help him, although I accept some here will see it differently.

    The Estonia Tourist Board agree and keep saying I have "a negative attitude" and "an agenda" against them! FFS

    Went on a stag do there in January 2004. Very, very, very cold. But the women were a bloody joy. (Best man got slashed with a knife - only a little nick as it goes - by some jealous Russian fella but overall a great weekend!)

    Premier League Thread 2018/19 stuff it in here.

    Wonderful game for the neutral. Right result for the neutral. Wish they could've played for another hour.

    Some appreciate what I post and some don't, it's fine, none of it is ever taken personally. People know who I am, I'm not hiding behind a username (as such) so I'm there to be shot at. That may well be true. But he's not in France now and the football culture is very different. I only report what I'm told from various sources. If he can work on his weaknesses and keep the team winning then you won't get complaints from me.

    I haven't seen the video and I don't believe I've ever met Danny outside of a football environment. And, as it goes, I've never taken drugs or supplied them.

    I'm sure you're smart enough to realise what people in football say publicly and what they think privately is not necessarily the same thing. This is a general point and not aimed at any individual player.

    I'm sure he is, getting loads of game time. That doesn't mean Puel is much livelier than he is when he speaks to the media. Not a dig at Puel by the way.

    People inside the club - staff, players etc - might beg to differ.

    Has Anyone Booked a Holiday Yet?

    How did you get on @STEVIE B ? @Wakeyfox I'm looking at Sentido Palm Royale later this month. Ever stayed there? Planning on sitting by the pool, enjoying the all inclusive, and using the gym each day, no excursions, just taking it pretty easy.
