  1. A defence of Matty James

    Good post this is. I do feel Ndidi and James as a midfield pair aren't great, but yeah he could've won us the game yesterday with the header and he didn't play badly at all. James also seems to want to play for the club, always gives his all on the pitch and that's good. His recovery from injury has been excellent.
  2. Plaudits for our Atmosphere, let's keep it up

    It's not been good for a long while. I'd like to see some changes next season, finally progress from old Championship esque habits - and part of that is the fanbase.
  3. Stoke Tickets

    1 adult ticket available for today's match. Block SK1. £30. Send me a message if interested. Thanks.
  4. Race for 7th spot and Europe

    I hope we don't lose the pace of things in these next 11 games. The chance to finish 7th and qualify for Europe should be the aim for the players.
  5. Simpson

    I think we might start to see how much we'll miss him assuming he's out for a period of games. Might also make people realise what a key player he is for us. Underrated and superb defensively.
  6. Albrighton

    He is a top player for us.
  7. Southampton (A) pre-match

    It's nice going into games at the moment knowing we aren't desperate for points and we're in a comfortable position in the table. Can see this being a draw, which would be fine. Winnable though.
  8. Puel

    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.
  9. The Claude Puel Era - what will he bring?

    We're keeping the ball much better. He's changed a few things and we are looking good. Pleasing to be 9th.
  10. Plaudits for our Atmosphere, let's keep it up

    Agree particularly that our away ends were much better in the Championship, the 2013/14 season in particular - they were great.
  11. Man City Post Match Thread 0-2

    Manchester City were top class, and are the probable title winners. We couldn't really get back into the game today because of how well they kept the ball. Subs should've come on earlier - left it too late with Slim and Okazaki... I don't think it was a case of personnel either. Felt to me we could've tried a variety of different options and I think we'd still of lost. Excellent opposition, Man City are a team playing at the top of their game at the moment. Also noticed through different periods of the game today, how Man City took the sting out of it. Have to be a very good team to do that, and they are.
  12. Stoke Post Match Thread 2-2....again

    Could've and should've won. In the past two games (including today), I've noticed how much better we have been at keeping the ball, which is definitely benefiting us. Good performance, looked very threatening going forward.
  13. Iborra - Key Player?

    Looking like a great signing, and for £12m or so a really good buy. Offers a presence in the midfield and is so composed on the ball.
  14. I still want Puel to play Okazaki and Albrighton, as I think they're both excellent for us. We've got a very good squad and judging from Sunday a new formation moving forward. Good options to have.
  15. The Claude Puel Era - what will he bring?

    Sunday's game was very encouraging. Good to see I'm not the only one who noticed how better we were in possession.
