  1. He should go full strength against both. Spurs manage to do it. Ranieri managed to do it with us. This non-stop rotation is hardly working is it? He's inflexible though, chunters on about a big squad but this is a cup quarter final. Theres a time and a place for making wholesale changes.
  2. I think it's fair to ask of your manager to get the strongest team out possible for a quarter final of a cup. It's as if its groundhog day from the two cup quarter finals we whiffed out of at home last season.

    Harvey Barnes - West Brom (loan)

    I think it's reasonable to compare them both, although they are slightly different players. Barnes is more of a " forward " than Maddison but in a fluid 4-2-3-1 or even in a 2 behind Vardy could work.

    Harvey Barnes - West Brom (loan)

    Barnes scored and assisted at a similar rate to Maddison last season, without any set piece duties in a dog shit Barnsley side.

    Harvey Barnes - West Brom (loan)

    I'm sure it's more than that, he was responsible for over 20 goals last season and looked quality. Him and Barnes are different players. Both could start for us.

    Either way I agree with your suggestion. Looks spot on

    Norwich seem to have improved dramatically since flogging Maddison...

    Maddison is exceptional at set pieces though and both have a role in this team behind Vardy.

    Available Managers should Puel get the sack

    Wouldn't be surprised if Utd go for Laurent Blanc until the summer and either give it him for longer or then go for Poch. Blanc used to play for them which is why I'm linking them together.

    Available Managers should Puel get the sack

    And why is that something to be used against him? He had a talented group of youngsters and he played them and they were phenomenal. We dream of doing something similar, yet the likelihood is remote but if that's the model you are going for then go for a manager who has done it before. Or are you suggesting we get a manager ill prepared to believe in a squad of young players?
  11. Haha he has but he doesn't usually rest him when we play 3 games in a week, Morgan gets rested for the odd game when we play someone crap.

    Isn't he at Club Brugge?
  13. When your other two strikers have scored 4 goals in 65 games then yes, it's a no brainer to rest Vardy in a crucial game.
  14. But he's extremely erratic with how he does this. I agree that to a certain extent that you have to be careful during busy periods but he rotates for the sake of it and we lose all momentum. It happened the same last year when we were on a good run and we then plummeted during the busy period and it was pointless. Also, he doesn't rotate the likes of Morgan who at 35 and with a few severe injuries over the years is likely to feel the burden but he'll sure rotate his young players like Gray, Ndidi and Maddison for clowns like Diabate and Choudhury. As the Southampton fan who has come to light over his blog on Puel, it's as if every decision is decided off a spreadsheet. It's very peculiar. It's not going to be the end of the world to play our strongest side twice in 4 days, Ranieri managed to do it week in, week out and we didnt get hit with life threatening injuries.
