    Hope in the upcoming preseason Puel gives Eppiah, Barnes and Knight plenty of game time in friendlys. Knight especially has look good every time I have seen him play.

    https://imgur.com/a/8X6wc here is BT's line, I'd still argue its offside but only just. Edit: Do the defenders arm play opposition onside? If so then its onside.
  3. Stoke (H)..pre match thread.

    Schmeichel Amartey Dragovic Maguire Chilwell/Fuchs, wont be disapointed with either option Mahrez Ndidi Silva Gray Diabate Vardy Amartey over Simpson because Simpson just isn't good enough on the ball, neither is Amartey but he is younger and I can see him growing into the role when he becomes more confident. Need to go out in the summer and buy a good attacking Rb though as neither are as good as Fuchs or Chilwell at attacking which is what Puel will want, especially next season with Mahrez off. Dragovic back in, while Morgan is arguably a better defender, Dragovic offers more all round and doesn't deserve to be dropped after recent performances. Gray over Albrighton, Albrighton been out of form and Gray should get another shot after a decent enough performance against Shefield. Wouldn't be disapointed if Albrighton did start though. Diabate, looked good in previous games when moved to the number 10 role, with Okazaki out would be good to see if we have a player who can transform our attacking play through skill rather then just sheer workrate.

    Apart from it was Fuchs who lost his man?

    Shame that Barnes hasn't shown much in his fa cup games as he could have had a spot on the bench with Mahrez out. He will just have to find his form again at U23 level and take his chances in the cups. I thought Ndukwu was going on loan to a Dutch club? Guess thats not happening now unless the loan window is still open?

    Been getting involved, some good touches and one touch passing. Been a bit quite last 5 since we have been getting Gray into the game on the other wing.

    The interplay between iheanacho, Gray, diabate and Barnes is brilliant and probably what Puel wants to move towards. Got some brilliant youngsters at the club.

    Silva with a dirty touch and turn there

    Quoted from their statement. " The Club is convinced the appointment of Silva was the right one and had it not been for the unwarranted approach by a Premier League rival for his services we would have continued to prosper under his leadership. " I don't really see how the club could have such a downturn just because Everton tried to get Silva, unless he said something which peed off the players backstage. Probably should have accepted the money Everton where going to give in compensation.

    How many managers have been sacked after playing us over the last few seasons?
  12. Annoying that we give benalouane game time over knight who had probably been the U23 player of the season so far.
  13. Football is Ruined - Play to the Whistle?VAR

    True, I guess it is something that will be made clearer in time. Maybe they just use VAR for chances like the one last night where it is instantly obvious there will be a chance on goal and trust the linesman to get it right for offsides further up the pitch?
  14. Football is Ruined - Play to the Whistle?VAR

    Whilst a bit over the top in my opinion it is a good point to make. I wonder if in situations where a striker is clean through the ref will let it play out and then when when the move is over via a shot or slows down (Say the player runs towards the corner flag to wait for support to whip in a cross, meaning there is no longer a clear cut chance) they will then look at VAR and either pull the play back to where the offside was or give a freekick to the attacking team but must be no more then a 5 yard pass so they don't get too big an advantage from it? While it is a tricky situation I hope it is given time as the rules we have in place today didn't appear in the first game of football and took time to come into effect, we should give VAR the same time as I believe in the long run it will prove to be a great peice of technology, just need patience in the first few seasons as mistakes will be made.

    Luke Thomas plays lb and seems quite confident for his U23s debut
