    Puel - what about now

    Regardless of what is right or wrong he will go, he is not right for the club and never was. The number of questions and posts about him says that. He needs to go, and he will. He isn't a genius with some plan that just needs time to kick in. By the same token let's tear up the squad and start again. We are dated and sinking fast.

    Why are people clapping Mahrez?

    Thats mahrez's explanation. Of course he would say that.
  3. He'd be a bit part player for me from here on in, get the team used to being without him and give others opportunity. If he applies himself in training and earns a spot fair enough but he left the group and has to work his way back. If he wants a decent club he'll do it, if he doesn't ok we could lose some of his value, but we can afford it and sometimes there are things more valuable than profit. The squad need to know that his behaviour isn't ok.

    Peter Canero

    I'm not sure why I posted this, but I guess it shows how far we've come. Someone mentioned Mark De Vries above, I think at the time that was about the best we could hope for, and anyone who sounded vaguely exciting (foreign names etc.) or under 30 would get interest. A couple of signings I did rate were Marcus Bent and Ben Thatcher, but 2005 onwards was dire.

    Rumour has it we're in for about 250k from Kilmarnock. Seems like sensible business.

    A young prospect on reportedly over 100k a week? On that wage you need to deliver and not be seen as a youth teamer who will work his way up the ranks.

    Leicester City negotiate Ahmed Musa loan

    Forget a loan, just get rid. A loan should be for younger players to get experience not kick the can down the road a bit, we need to clear out the rubbish.

    100%. Service matters, but quality players are able to make things happen for themselves. If Slimani never gets the service he needs, what does that say about his positioning and suitability for our tactics?
  10. totbl


    He's been throwing his arms around since he came here. Service is a factor, but he doesn't create or offer much when he has the ball anyway. I don't understand what people see in him, especially considering the price tag. Ulloa has given us far more over the years compared to Slimani. It's time for him to move on too though.

    Fleetwood Town (A) 0-0 FA Cup 3rd Round

    Completely - no wonder we (mostly) stick with the same set of players, the rest are awful. If we didn't have Vardy, Mahrez etc. we would be dire. We need players in, but more importantly we need to ship some out, because the work ethic and right attitude isnt there. Look at Okazaki - works his socks off and causes problems, compare the price tag of him against Ihenacho and Slimani. These big time signings rarely work for us.

    Fleetwood Town (A) 0-0 FA Cup 3rd Round

    cheers. I want Puel to be ruthless, feel like our side is dated and we need to re-focus on bringing in players with the right mentality and attitude (something that has been lost since NP went), and build a new side. Our current squad seems to be the same core team from a few years ago, plus a lot of dross/signings that didnt work out, plus maybe a couple of good additions (Maguire, Iborra etc.). We don't want to go backwards, but I think there is a good argument for drastic changes and starting afresh.

    We need a clear out, Slimani should have been gone some time ago.

    How long will Puel last?

    Why is this thread allowed to remain up? I'm not for stopping discussion, but it has to be sensible, and this is ridiculous. When first announced, I wasn't sure about Puel - but I'm happy with him so far, and the direction he has started to take us in. He hasn't been able to turn this into his side yet, and we should get on board and see where it goes. He has a good record, and likes bringing youth in too. I think many should remember that once you become a sacking club, the quality of manager you can bring in is in diminishing returns. If we went down that route, we'd be relegated in a few seasons. How is this even a discussion at this point? It's embarrassing frankly, and I think part of this is from his image and accent etc. and people wanting a 'character'.
