    No Choudhury, could be playing tomorrow? Guess Elders new contract is so we can sell him for some money next year, would have thought this season would be perfect to give him game time in the cups if he has a future here, shame as I thought he played well in preseason.

    Wonder if this story would have come out if we won 4-0 instead.

    What to do about the defense?

    Mentioned it in the Hudderfield pre match thread in more detail but Choudhury would be perfect for that role. Its disapointing that Puel seems to have forgotten about him, if he can't even make the bench after how he performed last season when called upon does he have a future here? Puel would rather have 3 defenders on the bench for god sake. I thought Puel would be eager to bring him through so he has another young player he has developed. I thought when he joined he would be giving the U23s chances and while he has brought through youth he has only done it with low risk players, Chilwell and Gray, who most people expect to make it and have previously shown ability. For me to judge Puel as a manager that develops young tallent he needs to start bringing through U23 players where possible, why doesn't he try bringing through some of the U23 Cbs like Knight, Johnson or Hughes (I know he is injured at the moment) instead of bringing in 2 foreign young players. I'm glad we got them but would have been even happier if a manager spent the time trying to develop what we already have. Say we brought through Johnson and Knight instead of buying Benkovic and Soyuncu, then we can use that £30 million (not sure if thats how much we paid for both) to buy another winger or striker which we really need. To be fair to Puel Ghezzal did have a great defensive work rate in his previous games. The fact is if we want to play the football Puel wants we will have to overload the opposition box and that means having both wingers and fullbacks high up the pitch, the issue was that Pereria failed to get back in time to help out, the Cbs don't have a pace to get across to cover, the midfield went awol when they should have been sitting just infront of the defence and Bournemouth had a really quick attack. For all the critisism Chilwell gets (unfairly imo) he makes sure to get back in position if he is caught up the pitch and they counter, how many goals have we conceeded this year from a Chilwell mistake? I can't think of one clear error (Although there have been a few errors that could have led to goals not as many as Pereria though). Compare that to when we have Pereria at Rb and he is constantly losing his man or over committing and getting beaten with some skill. I think he will come good though, he just needs to adapt to the league and how much quicker in thought and skill the attackers are.

    Huddersfield (H)..up next!

    Unpopular suggestion but if we aren't going to go 3 at the back then I think Choudhury would be a good option to play instead of Ndidi. Ndidi has been off the boil a bit recently so him sitting on the bench for a game might give him a bit more focus instead of being an automatic pick. My reasoning for Choudhury instead of Silva or Iborra is that he is the closest to the midfield type that Puel wants. He is defensively minded, has an engine so can cover large areas of the pitch and has a high workrate. One thing I noticed last season from watching him and in U23 games this year is that he tends to sit just infront of the back 2 and alot of the time makes a back 3, playing in a similar role to Dier at Tottenham, when their fullbacks push on he drops into defense in case of a counter. He has a good range of passing as well, in his first few games playing it simple but ended up trying riskier passes in later games and pulling them off, see his assist for Mahrez in the Arsenal game towards the end of the season. In comparison I think Silva is too attack minded for what Puel wants from his DM's, and Iborra isn't quick enough to cover enough ground. Add to the fact that their passing is very hit and miss and I don't see why Choudhury has been demoted to the U23 (although if people want to explain to me why I will gladly listen as I might be too bias towards the young players as I like to see as many local prospects come into the first team as possible). Knowing my history of complaining about player selection though Ndidi, Mendy, Silva and Iborra are going to play in a 4-4-2 diamond and each score a hatrick to shut me up now that I have criticised them.

    Bournemouth V Leicester - Match Thread

    Ndidi and Mendy's role is to sit back and cover the defense yet for both goals they have been no where to be seen.

    Hamza Choudhury

    Bit confused as to what has happened with Choudhury. Played one preseason game and hasn't been in the squad since. While Ndidi and Mendy are first choice surely the next player that has a similar style (break up play and cover the wings when the fullbacks push on) is Choudhury, yet Puel seems to prefer Iborra who isn't getting any younger. I wouldn't mind choudhury not being a part of the first team if he went out on loan to get experience, yet both himself and Johnson have been kept at the club to seemingly play U23 football which is below them and don't even make the bench for cup games. Just confused as he did well stepping in last season when called upon and he needs to continue getting first team football or he will end up stagnating.

    Leicester v Fleetwood, EFL 2nd Round - 28/08/2018 at 19:45

    Annoying as he did well last year. Deserved a loan to a prem club, hope he can get one at championship level as he won’t develop at all playing hoof ball for the U23s

    Gray ??

    My only complaint with Gray is that he doesn’t run behind defenders. There was a moment towards the end of the first half against Southampton where Chilwell stole the ball, the RB was out of position so there was acres of space to run into and Gray wanted the ball to feet instead of in front. If he can get better at running in behind then he will be so much more dangerous. Besides that though great start to the season with high work rate not just going towards but also tracking back to help defend. Think LW is his to lose now.

    Laughable that after pre-season they still can't get the livestreams working for kickoff. Up now

    Squad numbers

    Going to be a bit annoyed if Choudhury goes out on loan, been better then Iborra in pre-season and did well when coming in at the back end of last year. A loan to a prem club would have been decent for him and would have agreed with it if he would get first team football, but surely now only Championship clubs would be in for him which I think he is too good for? Could end up stifling his development.

    Lille 5.05BST away Pre-season match thread.

    Towards the end of the game some tool in towards the back on the left hand side was giving a couple in front of me to the left some abuse (and probably giving abuse to fans in general) for not standing up and singing in a friendly. After about 5 minutes of this pretty much all the fans to my right where giving him shit and he deserved it, no need to throw abuse at fans (calling the woman and her husband c****), especially in a friendly where there is sod all on the line. What made it worse is the people I assume he was with didn't do anything to shut him up until after the game when the husband had had enough and got in his face to shut him up. Not nice to sit near and ruined the end of the game as my attention was drawn to the moron and making sure that if anything kicked off myself and my dad would be able to move out of the way quickly. Hope he woke up the next day regretting how he acted, he was obviously drunk but that doesn't give you permission to act like a willy puller.

    Choudhury man of the half. Only one putting in 100% effort.
