    Huddersfield (H) Match Thread

    Exactly: don’t think I ever seen that unless injury time in a Cup game. Puel is a lucky ****er.

    Disagree. Stats: I saw some yesterday (?) showing that almost a year into his tenure Puel’s pts per game average are less than Shakey, who was shown the door. An unacceptable managerial performance I would suggest.

    You are wrong in that most people when the term ‘bringing youth through’ mean interms of OUR youth players. Again you are arguing for the sake of it I think as I don’t believe you are stupid. Where did I say I disagreed with signing young players? I happen to believe it’s the way to go; Maddison looks a great signing, but I do not believe that this manager is getting the best out of this squad or will ever do so. For Chilwell to be our best defender this season, says it all. He is not very good, and it just emphasises what a mess Puel is making of things at the back. We are shocking in that area and for you to quote stats in another post to argue that things are ok is frankly ridiculous.

    According to the owners. Im sure you know this, and you are in arguing for arguments sake mode Mr B

    Because he’s bought younger players than the old guys who should have gone previously! ‘Bringing through the young players is his forte’ now includes those he ****ing buys as well! Come on Baby!

    Yes all very balanced of you. We were a mid table team the year after the title win. Over two years later we aspire to be better than mid table but with Claude we are not, I and many others want better than the shit that has been served up in terms of results and entertainment; which we pay for I might add; under his tenure. All I ask of a manager is to get the best out of the players we have. Again, not happening.

    Fair enough. Not a lot has happened though has it....probably because none of them are good enough? Not sure why he gets credit for things that may happen, but may not. He’s been responsible for bringing one player into the first team in the PL - Hamza. And nothing this season! Really, how is he getting credit for this?

    ....and the nonsense continues. Intensity is employing physical and mental effort, it’s pressing, its closing people down, it’s running more than the other team. Thats what WE did. You don’t need the best players and it does not need years to perfect ffs. What it does need is a manager that understands its benefits and who implements it. Puel either doesn’t value it, or can’t get it implemented; either way he is a lame duck. Btw, when you say ‘he’ do you mean ‘I’ Claude?

    I appreciate your patience, but it’s not something I can sit by and tolerate watching. A year is a long time in football these days. My cat could get this squad top 10 and she’s on deaths door. Wasn’t his job to get us Europa League last season? - He was miles off it. I have no faith in this guy improving our club to be the best it can be. I didn’t believe he was right initially, and there has been absolutely nothing I have seen since to make me believe otherwise. Passing it around for passings sake, can’t score, can’t defend, talk of bringing young players through (who gives shit unless they are local - we may as well buy them). Smoke and mirrors thus far and no progress in the arena that matters, on the pitch with performances allied with results.

    How convenient in your response that you actually don’t read the post properly and choose to ‘misunderstand’ what the point is. I didn’t say we should have made NO changes from our our PL winning team. We have however, ‘thrown the baby out with the bathwater’. I actually said we now don’t have the intensity - one of the great attributes of that team - with this current manager. That’s a big issue and one that is partially responsible for shit results and performances under Puel. Its a crying shame this guy was employed - he’s trying to play continental football 5 years out of date in the present in the PL. Its no coincidence that the best two teams in the division employ that type of intensity. It’s great to watch and very effective. Sadly we have Claude and with him all his apologists such as yourself, who can’t see the reality of what the team has become; soft and impotent 😳; the very opposite of what’s required to succeed. By all means continue to be an ostrich 😀

    You know me so well. 😃

    I don’t understand why someone advocating the status quo, is a ‘sensible post’ when the situation for 8 months is one of a decline in results and performances. The last twelve months has been a complete waste of time, the clubs stagnation continues unabated, and people are content with that?

    Utopia is not what I’m asking for. To simplify matters; his results are very poor over an extended period given the squad he has to work with. Added to which there is no sign of us undoing the bad combination of being low scoring and conceding too many goals. We are actually on a massive slide in form since January. I’ve been calling this incompetence of his since then - it’s really obvious 🤷🏻‍♂️

    Read this thread and consider. Everyone has said things are wrong and we need to do this, that or the other, and that includes ‘Puel inners’. If after a year at the helm a large proportion of fans have major criticism of the managers selections and tactics, the conclusion has to be that he is not doing an adequate job. It is crystal clear to everyone, but not all are prepared to accept it for reasons only known to themselves.

    Come alive. We play with no intensity whatsoever now so we are a million miles away from being a Liverpool or even our own title winning side based on that factor alone. For some reason only known to the hierarchy we’ve thrown every good facet of what made us Champions and done the exact opposite including employing Puel and his style of play. A club of our size cant make it work playing the big boys at their own game. Total bullshit.
