Really pleased with how it's going under Puel. Happy with the points we have on board and the position we're in. Since he's come in, one of the biggest changes has been how much better we are on the ball. This has probably been our biggest detractor in recent seasons, we've haven't had the balance of our counter attacking style of play with being able to keep the ball when necessary. We now seem to have that balance and we're a better side for it.
Puel has also introduced a new formation in 4-2-3-1, another key change. When he joined Puel recognised the need for a plan B, something we lacked under both Ranieri and Shakespeare. We now have another formation which works and it has given us a much needed alternative to 4-4-2. We have become more dynamic going forward, and Gray and Mahrez in particular have benefitted from playing behind Vardy, having more freedom to attack.
Claude has realised a few changes which needed to be made here and he's been willing to do them. For us, ball retention and a change in formation have been two of the biggest talking points which needed looking at. These two changes seemed quite an undertaking because they didn't happen under Ranieri or Shakespeare, but in Puel we've got a manager in who has had the courage to make changes. For me, we're looking like a quality team under Puel.
