    Fans Who Leave Games Early

    Been crap for a while, I’m a big believer in what happens on the pitch affects the atmosphere, and visa versa, a negative crowd affects the players. The football on the pitch has become slow, and mundane, and safe, which has bored the terraces, we are a team and style in transition, the fans just need to adapt and forget the fast counter attacking football, and just create some noise.

    Fans Who Leave Games Early

    Leave my seat 88 mins, due to disability, and not coming down stairs in crowds, watch the screen downstairs, if it’s just seeing out the game, disappear early, as I come through town, home in 10 minutes, rather than see the players leave the pitch, not my cup of tea, that 10 minutes becomes over an hour

    Same as chilwell, shite full backs, good wing backs with the protection of the 3 centre half’s

    Nacho man assist appreciation thread

    Agree this is our strongest formation, with two full backs, who are wing backs, and can’t defend in a back 4, it’s the way to play, I share your frustration, 3-5-2 please Claude

    Puel goes. Who do you choose?

    Who would want to come here, we are not attractive to the bigger names, who many would want. We have got through to many managers the last few years, so through gritted teeth, and boredom at times, I will stick with puel and hope he sorts out some sort of consistency, and get rid in the summer if we repeat last season

    The OH Leuven Thread

    On paper we improved positions, when you look at it on paper, but going on experiencing it, league one with the squad he had, yes good season. Following seasons some shocking football but gradually improving the league position, without spectacular improvement, and then admittedly a spectacular improvement to win the championship. Then awful again for most of that premier league experience, and somehow stayed up. Puel has a lot of comparisons with Pearson, hated by half the fans, and inconsistent, and had terrible runs, Pearson divided fans opinions, some still think he can come back and all will be rosy. Looking at his management career since leaving, for me it proves how much of an influence his back room staff had on his success, he’s not same without Shakespeare

    I like you as a poster on here walshy, but we had some horrendous runs under Pearson, yes we progressed under Pearson, but not every season.

    So, 5 games in...

    I don’t want to see him go, but in puel style his strengths are wasted, it’s more technical, and vardy is a more over the top, pace and no time to think and react player. Slimani would have been great, said that when he left, played the more technical game at sporting, and we seem to throw the ball in the box, with only vardy in there, and his threat in the air is something we lack.

    To early to say, but seems it’s going to be a frustrating, inconsistent season. As long as it’s not like the bad run last season, I’d stick with puel, a lot of new faces bedding in. All this said, puel needs to find his best 11 and system, as his tactics and decisions are a bit baffling at times. Hate to say it, as vardy has been great for us, but I don’t think he suits puel’s style, where nacho probably does more, or he needs to play them both. Going to be a long season, as long as we seem to improve as the season goes on, I’m not feeling the manager change, and starting over yet again at present, but puel and his players have a lot to prove still

    Wasn’t it pawson who sent vardy off at stoke, and got pelted with coins, really don’t think he likes us, if I remember right vardy was fouled, which affected his tackle, and still really wasn’t a red

    Bournemouth V Leicester - Match Thread

    I’m not there, but said prior to the game, on paper a good side, but mentality must be right, we had to sit in and counter, and not play the tippy tappy side ways backwards stuff we see regularly.

    Bournemouth V Leicester - Match Thread

    Agree about gray, over rated, not ready to play for us, Morgan is Morgan, he’s brought in better but not playing them. But let’s not hide from the fact, a lot of us said puel had pick a good side, players are letting him down

    Puel needs to change it at half time, not at 80 minutes, this could be very embarrassing

    Feel more for Silva, been a disaster of a move for him, must be hard for him to stay motivated

    Bournemouth V Leicester - Match Thread

    Can see a few players asking to leave in jan, Silva and Iborra defo for example, but if the first 11 are playing well, they have to earn their place. Good side picked, attacking on paper, but need that counter attacking mentality today, quick on the break, rather than the slow stuff we see. Bournemouth are a good footballing side, who will pass it around well, but we should go out with the attitude that these are the sides we should be beating if we are to improve.
