  1. I think he'll more just be remembered for being a pretty rubbish striker than anything like that

    I feel like we do tend to hold onto a lot of younger players for longer than most do. Not sure if that's accurate but it feels like we do!

    The OH Leuven Thread

    I may think he needs to go from Leuven but this is blatant Pearson revisionism!

    The OH Leuven Thread

    Surely you have to be being sarcastic or something? Just because Pearson did it once in a completely different scenario doesn't mean he's guaranteed to do it at Leuven given enough time! I understand why Top is probably giving Pearson more time than he otherwise might given the events of a few months ago but I think he needs to get rid, sad as it is to say. Pearson and Leuven is categorically not working.

    Season over!

    As pitiful as that performance and results was, a lot of people were asking for most of the players that played to start. Blaming Puel for team selection is extremely fickle based on that, but I think all of the above need to share blame for the abject performance, and I think we need a drastic overhaul of our non-essential players. I want to see Puel buy something in midfield and a backup striker in the transfer window and try to impose his style from thereon out otherwise I wouldn't protest his being sacked come the end of the season. I still like a lot of things about his tenure, but I also don't think he is quite the right match at this very moment with this squad by large. Though the general outcry of overdramatic loathing for Puel is really doing my head in so I'll probably stay away for a while lest I fall into arguing a position I don't even strongly hold.

    Puel 'Facing the sack' - reports

    To be fair I think if they still had Hughes they might say yes, but under Hassenhutl I think they're optimistic about him given his management in Germany.

    You might be thinking of Newquay which I believe is in Cornwall area!

    Hahaha it's no worries mate! I was hoping saying passhun and such that it'd be apparent As it happens though I do agree with your response - regardless of misunderstanding my post!

    I can see why people would be nervous about team selection here, but in my opinion I think if you can't rotate against a League 2 side, then when else are you going to have the possibility of trying out a couple of youngsters and fringe players to see how they respond? I'd like a cup run as much as the next bloke, but I don't think we should play a full-strength side against these.

    It's counter attacking! Puel is an idiot for trying to ever change a starting 11 that's won and ever deviating from our passhun-filled counter attacking style. Doesn't even matter that you can't really rely on counter attacking to break down defences - as long as we can see lots of balls over the top to Vardy and quick transitions then nothing else matters!

    I think this shows one of the biggest issues with our side this season - that the most consistent side we've had playing together has been for 144 minutes and that our most consistent side contains Hamza when he only really came into the first team recently says we maybe tinker too much with personnel. Obviously it's never as cut and dry as that - a reason we've not been able to do this is the lack of quality depth in midfield and various suspensions and injuries but I do think it's something Puel should he better at.

    I think if some posters here were fans of other clubs, every single other mid table managers would have been sacked by now too for perceived lack of ambition and form.

    Kelechi Iheanacho / Nacho Man

    Sorry when did Nacho talk turn into Hitler talk??? What have I missed???

    Booing your own team

    Is there a distinction between booing the substitution and the player? I understand maybe the intent behind it might differ, but is there inherent concept behind it not that you're upset that Iheanacho is coming on to replace Vardy - ergo you're upset Nacho is coming onto the pitch?

    I think I'll take a couple of new fans over a new manager right now. And I'm only half joking!
