    Summer rebuilding of the squad

    A decision may need to be taken on Mendy this summer. I think he came on a 4 year contract, so that would expire in June 2020. So we either offer him a new o or sell him if we want to recoup any money. He’s a decent enough player, but we have Hamza and I would like to see him play more next season. I say sell Mendy in the summer if there is interest. May also help to finance a Tielmans bid if he proves as good as we hope he will be in the next 12 games

    Palace at Home - Pre Match

    Feels reasonably obvious to me the team should be: Kasper (if we are still enough of a challenge for him) Ricky Chillers H Jonny Wilf Youri Madders DG Harvey JV

    Albrighton out for the season?

    ‘Hugely limited’, but with a premier league winners medal in his sock draw. Hope you don’t give work appraisals for a living

    Booing

    Our anxious supporters at home are becoming a hinderamce just as Liverpool’s were to them on Wednesday.

    Manchester United (H).. Up next.

    Loved the Liverpool game. Anfield is a wonderful ground to visit even if the home fans are palpably anxious. Very amusing. And now I'm proper excited for Sunday. Would love a ding-dong 3-3 draw or such like

    Liverpool 1-1 Leicester - Post Match Thread

    Agreed. Both worth £50 million already.

    Claude Puel told job "Safe" - report

    This year’s edition of the Deloitte football club wealth liiat is out. We were the 22nd largest revenue generating club in Europe. 10th amongst English Clubs. So on purely financial terms, we should be 10th.

    Claude Puel told job "Safe" - report

    This is our fifth year in the Prem. For the first three and a half seasons we were either flirting with relegation or winning it (slight editorial license there as we eventually stabilised under Shaky in the Champions League season). Arguably it's only under Uncle Claude we've settled pretty much where most people would feel is where we ought to be (somewhere between 7th and 12th). What's also true is that a significant amount of our big money signings have been a serious disappointment (Slim, Silva and Nacho) none of whom were signed by Claude. My emotional brain says he's dull and uninspiring, so get rid. My logical brain says hang on in there.

    Claude Puel told job "Safe" - report

    Ha. What a decision that would be. To sack someone because the team loses away to Liverpool.

    That you call it a shit performance. First half was poor from both sides. Second half we totally bossed it and could have won 2 or 3 nil. It may not have been pretty l, but I see that as an immense performance. anyway, happy days and happy new year

    Really? Shit performance? A superb away win against a mid table rival.

    Is Puel out basically Brexit and Puel in Remain?

    Puel 'Facing the sack' - reports

    I’d certainly wish for a better return, of course. I keep changing my mind on Puel. It worries me that he may not have that ability to inspire that is a necessity for managers in any business. But could we be one player away from being very good? If we had a Ricardo type player instead of Nampalys, who is solid but slightly uninspiring, that might just be the final piece of the jigsaw. And a striker as a genuine back up for Vardy. In the summer I suspect Simpson, Fuchs, Okazaki, Benny, James, King, Silva and Iborra will leave. Discounting possible departures we don’t want, we will need a centre mid and a striker, and we welcome back Barnes and Benkovic. If we can get that recruitment right we might just have a fantastic team. i thus remain painfully positioned on the fence.
