    Kelechi Iheanacho / Nacho Man

    ...those too games are important, as they were played in a different way in contrast to the previous games that season. High tempo and attempted to squeeze the opposition with support coming from midfield with additional players getting into the box, occupying defenders allowing him to poach in the box as that is his forte.

    Kelechi Iheanacho / Nacho Man

    ....he might just find his feet in a different system, but what happens when he comes back? Coming back to a system that does not suit him would just put him back at square one. His perceived style of play is nothing like what we are playing and after all this time he has not changed his style to accommodate the way we set up (4-2-3-1) to play. He needs to either change the way he plays or stick to what he believes is his natural style (which he will need to find a club who will embrace his attributes). I think he will justify his value away from us and as long as we can reclaim the majority of his fee, it would be best for all concerned. With the "clause" in situ, Man. City technically has first refusal but I doubt they will be rushing to give us our money back.

    Lack of creativity under Puel

    .... no. Your post states that you are dealing in facts. It is a fact that we won the league. "Bucking the trend ' would have been finishing 5th,4th,3rd or 2nd. Is what you believe to be un-realistic, the fact that we won it?

    Adrien silva

    ....the difference with Mendy was , he was injured very early in his time with us and therefore had not the opportunity to play and show what he could do.
  6. ....the only problem is we are just as ineffective with them as we were tonight. Goals in open play should be they mainstay of any club, we seem to circumnavigate that aspect of our play!!!

    .. strange how we frowned at getting Ross Barkley, now look at him. Just needed a new environment and someone who believed in him!

    Morgan

    ...then let us switch Chillwel to right side and Armatey (when fit) to the left. It is quite obvious what the comment was in respect of positions. They could play in various positions but not to the standard in their proper position.

    January Transfer Window Thoughts & Rumours

    ...even the visits to the transfer market has been a series of misjudgment. Ricardo a full back who can't play the position, Ghezzal....a panic buy as a replacement for Mahrez, who we knew was going for 2 years. Mendy now resides in midfield as a holding midfield player but wants to go forward to support...,Puel wants him to hold his position. Morgan (a genuine candidate for replacement) Benkovic and Soyuncu brought in, Benkovic sent to Scotland but only recently (Soyuncu) incorporated in the back four. I am not sure if he selects the players he wants but I have little faith he will bring in the players required. He is blinkered...just like Wenger, you could see the frailties of the Arsenal team and for years he failed to address the problem with his defence, it did not matter what combination he introduced up front to rectify his stalling team, the real problem of the defence was never addressed. As we all know, year on year the teams standing in the league deteriorated.

    January Transfer Window Thoughts & Rumours

    ...why don't we know already....it's been over a year!!! This has been the problem with Puel, he does not know what his best team is, or, the positions required to be filled, to move us forward.!!!!

    January Transfer Window Thoughts & Rumours

    ...he is far better than Ghezall in the right wing position.....he is not Mahrez but has the attributes and instinct of our former winger and I believe the move to Girona was a poor decision by Man. City. He had all but said goodbye to Celtic and packing his bags to come to Leicester then the move doesn't happen. He is then moved to another country and new language and is expected to perform for a team his mind and heart is not into. I think we made a bad call, by not following up after the Mahrez deal was done........!!

    January Transfer Window Thoughts & Rumours

    ....Clyne as a RB, we need someone who can run the team, pulling all the strings like a Shelvy type... so Shelvy, switch Ricardo to left wing and get Roberts in on the right. We would still be holding to the Puel policy of youth but just bringing in some experience for balance.

    Rachid Ghezzal signs.

    ....I have previous;y posted that Ghezzal should play in the ten position when we take off Maddison at 80 mins. I can understand if Albrighton was struggling, but putting Ghezzal on the wing to accommodate Nacho was a poor move and should have been avoided as we have attempted to shoehorn Nacho into the team with Maddison playing wide. We need to learn from past failures and Puel either deems this ploy to be successful or has failed to understand how it limits the creativity within the team. It seems to come back to seeing the big picture, and Puel appears, to be blind in this respect. He now collaborates with Stowell in the matter of game management, and without being disparaging Stowell is a goalkeeping coach who is normally used as a number two in a caretaker capacity. Why Puel should be seeking his council is beyond me and we need to have a number two alongside Puel, who he will not view as competition for his post and someone he trust to tell him, if he is missing the obvious, and the honesty to tell him so. This leads me to a wish or perhaps a move by the club to bring back Shakespeare as his number two. The problem with making Shakespeare the manager left the precarious position of losing a good coach when he was sacked. Having seen the events today, a family had united for the day, and what I now see as an obvious move by the club needs to happen in order to complete the jigsaw. For all the good performance (normally for one half) you feel there is something missing and you can feel it, and it is something like.... the team lacks identity and a heart. The fact that the previous managers were welcomed by the supporters, and we can all understand why it was done, and yet there is no warmth or feeling for Puel says a lot. The team reflects his personality, Shakey would bring the whole team and management together. It needs to happen.....make it so!!!!

    Post match thread Leicester 0-0 Burnley

    ...his age is not the problem!!! Played in a different system would make him look like the player we think he could be. In the Manchester team he previously played for he looked ahead of his time and due to the abundance of talent available Man. City deemed a sale with a generous buy back was the best way to go. He is stalling at our club, something I believe he realises and probably now looking for a plausible way out or a change of regime.

    Post match thread Leicester 0-0 Burnley

    ....Nacho had a bad today today! I recently wrote that I felt he was screwed in respect of his position within the team.He can't lead the line....he is effective in a two but not devastating. If Vardy is out of the team, the loan striker is not a role Nacho excels at, the whole formation does not suit him. He either changes his game or he goes elsewhere to progress, my guess is that he will be going as this just is not working. You have to realise that him coming in was with Shakespeare at the helm. He is not a Puel acquisition and all attempts to incorporate him in the match day line up seems contrived and unbalanced. I would love him to come good at Leicester but it is not going to happen under this regime, this is not a Puel diss, just an observation.
