  1. You could literally take this quote and drop it in a Pearson thread from 4/5 years ago. Without context the comments may seem a distasteful to some but to me it seems like another case of people desperate to be overly offended by something, again.

    Wagner leaves Huddersfield

    I like him, I think he’s done well there. I can’t remember a forward line worse than theirs in the prem. Mounie and that other complete donkey, can’t remember his name. He’s not had much chance with those 2 being the ones to fire them to safety again. Do I think he’s worth sacking Puel for? From what I’ve seen of both of them, no.

    Wolves (A)..next up.

    Same side as Saturday for me. Fancy us to get atleast a point.

    Southampton Home post match, 1-2 loss.

    Yeah all poor results, but it’s a stupid argument when we’ve won equally unexpected points against City, Chelsea and Everton. We’ve effectively cancelled out all of the good work over Christmas with 2 piss poor home defeats. But midtable sides are going to drop daft points here and there. Are you expecting us to beat every side in and around us? Plus, we’re 8th, not fvcking 18th. If you want him sacked because we’re not 6th I’d suggest that yes, you are going well OTT.

    Klopp had far more pedigree and credit in the bank but what we’re actually seeing isn’t THAT different is it? I’m not saying Puel is on Klopp’s level either, but the situation in front of our eyes right now bears a fair few similarities. Home form at the back end of last season was particularly shite but I seem to remember us having a fair few injuries/suspensions at the time too. Still, no excuses, it’s been nowhere near good enough. Do I think Puel will ultimately turn us around if he’s given another year? I have no idea, I think he’s worth the rest of the season at least because I’ve seen enough to think he’s earned it. The only reason i’d see logic in sacking him now would be if we’ve already got a genuine replacement lined up and they’re given the rest of the season to assess what we’ve got at the club. A panic button style sacking with nothing concrete in place would make no sense imo as we’re in absolutely no danger of relegation.

    1. I didn't even realise they finished as low as 8th. For a club of Liverpool's stature that is shambolic - yet you're saying things were far more rosy for Klopp in his first year or so? Both he and Puel inherited unbalanced squads that didn't suit their style, Klopp's needed 2/3 years to sort it out with plenty of shit performances along the way. 2. Our home form in the last 2 or 3 months especially has been dire. I can't defend it but I can see why we're struggling. We've not got enough in the midfield for us to break teams down in the way Puel wants us to. He must take the blame for setting us up in this way but I think he needs a better option in the middle.

    Puel's doing a rebuilding job on the squad and I think as a club we're in a better position than we were this time last season, especially as we've had to do it without Mahrez. If i were to give this season a score out of 10 i'd probably give it a high 6. Poor in the cups, okay in the league and a good job done in rebuilding the squad. Plenty of room for improvement and I don't think it's wrong to be expecting more than what we're seeing - I just think some are going well over the top.

    1. Not true at all, they regularly struggled to break teams down at home. 2. So signing Ricardo, Maddison + bringing through Chilwell/Hamza hasn't improved us? He took over when we were on the verge of the bottom 3 and we're now 8th. I'm not hiding from the problems we have under Puel at all but what you say here is just false.

    James Maddison Confirmed

    Jesus fvcking Christ this forum is just shit

    For me, after the Christmas we had and the position we’re in, Puel deserves at least the rest of this season. Mendy has cost us but the crosses to no one were equally annoying. Just shite

    Jarrod Bowen

    Scored a couple of big goals for us this year. Arguably been in our top 5 performers imo (Chilwell, Ricardo, Maddison, Gray, Vardy for me). He needs to continue adding more to his game and I want to see more from him as the season progresses but again he easily gets far more stick than he deserves. His pace is always a threat and he’s a good outlet, good at getting us up the pitch even on his bad days. I do expect him and Barnes to battle it out for a starting spot though. Hopefully it forces them both to up their own games.

    Southampton (H).. pre match thread

    Probably a bit token, saying Harvey will still need to fight for his spot in the squad. After how he handled Chilwell last season I’m pretty confident that he’ll be desperate to give Harvey as many minutes as he can.

    Barnes coming back

    Need a positive atmosphere in the stadium for these boys to flourish and play with confidence now. Hopefully when fans see these names on the team sheet they can put their opinion of Puel on the backburner and get behind them, even if things aren't working out for them. Would hate to hear moans and groans when Barnes loses the ball once or twice.

    Barnes coming back

    Brilliant news. Not expecting instant fireworks but I’m very excited to see him get a run of games in this side. Well in Claude
