  1. Anyone got a reference I can use for this please? Need to buy today ideally. A 4th person wants to come along and their reference doesn’t come up for a while yet. Thanks
  2. Genuinely believe he was destined for failure before he started. Large chunks of the fan base never took to him and his demeanour. The place is now flat with neither the players nor fans trying to help the other out. Feels like a downward spiral and nothing he can do can change that. Im a believer in momentum and the two cups have completely killed that. I’d make a change now, put a temporary manager in charge perhaps an ex player with good rapport (like Man Utd have done) till the end of the season whilst we conduct a thorough top to bottom review of what our plan is going forwards. Another depressing Saturday afternoon yesterday which felt like Groundhog Day.
  3. Just so predictable and frustrating. Whilst I accept the limitations of the personnel we have I.e. no holdup striker surely we have to try something different when plan a doesnt work. To simply sub a striker for a striker (and one who is significantly worse) is crazy. Two great results but decision making today has baffled me. Opened the red wine to try and block that out.
  4. There are no words to describe the tragedy that occurred on Saturday evening. Having just been to the ground and stood there empty and overwhelmed at the same time I have no idea how his family are coping. His legacy will go down in folklore as one of the greatest stories of all time. Rest in peace Vichai, we will all miss you x
  5. Haven’t been that angry walking away from the ground in a long time. I’ve always tried to support Puel as changes were needed and unfortunately I don’t think we can sack him. We are mid table and have some exhorting young players and after a year of his management we would get hammered for sacking him and I have no clue who we could attract. In conclusion I think we have to give him the season unless the wheels properly fall off. That being said it’s time for him to sack off old loyalties and play round pegs in round holes. If he’s brought Ricardo as a right back then play him there and develop him like he has Chilwell. If he’s brought Maddison to play number 10 then play him there and stop trying to shoe horn Ihenacho into the side. If he wants him to play and thinks he links play better than Vardy then play him upfront. Theres obviously some loyalty to him from the board so he might as well do it his way and stop trying to convert players who can’t play his way into something they aren’t. Frustrating old day.
  6. What a mess we are. I get the frustration at the playing style, I’m in that camp too but at some point we need a manager with the strength to make changes to the playing staff in terms of moving on the old guard and changing our style. Im not convinced Puel is the right man for that job but we have at least given him 6 months to assess the squad so he should (I bloody hope so anyway) have a recruitment plan in mind. If we sack him now it’ll no doubt take a few weeks to appoint a replacement. They then need to assess the squad and sign the players to suit their plans. With the World Cup and the window closing early that’s a very tight timescale to do that effectively. Personally im still in the keep Puel camp as sacking him just doesn’t give me any hope for an overhaul and positive transfer window that we desperately need. Fingers crossed for some positive football these last 4 games and some unity at the club.
