    Yohan Benalouane

    In Benalouane’s last appearance for us (albeit in the u23s) he kicked a player in the face inside the first two minutes. Classic Benny

    Elynoussi and that lad who ended up at Brighton have somehow been just as bad as Ghezzal this season

    Fair comment. Good job i'm not the manager otherwise we'd be starting half of the u23s away at Anfield

    Ughelumba is looking comfortable as always. His attacking output is highly praised but defensively I rarely see him get beat by the opposition winger.

    End of the first half The trialist Reghba won a penalty and scored a goal on the break. Solid performance from him so far. Knight and Pascanu don't even need to try, this level is way too easy for them. Just a thought but could we slot Knight into the 3 man midfield? Mendy needs to be dropped for his mistakes but we don't really have a replacement. Knight is very composed on the ball and does get forward well and has played at CDM a few times now. I know playing with 3 CDMs isn't ideal but I guess having Knight's presence in the middle would allow Choudhury and Ndidi to press high and try win the ball back in the opposition half. Also if Puel doesn't have faith in Soyuncu then why not give Pascanu a chance if Morgan becomes unavailable through injury or suspension.

    Danny Drinkwater

    Teams don’t park the bus for the entire game though. There are many opportunities in the game where we don’t even need a defence splitting pass, just a forward pass will do and chances will be created. There are times when teams do get bodies forward. But when we defend that counter and win the ball back, Mendy and Ndidi aren’t getting the ball upfield quick enough. Put Drinkwater in that situation and the first thing on his mind would be to release Vardy or find a player in space. I don’t see how he can be classed as a sideways passing merchant. A sideways passing merchant is someone like Eric Dier who can only give it 5 yards. Drinkwater is very direct with his passing and likes to play it forward which is what we are missing.

    Puel In / Out Poll (12/01/19)

    Probably an unpopular opinion but I don’t think we’re ready for the European commitments that come with finishing 7th. We all saw how poor our ‘fringe players’ are against Newport and if we’re in Europe i’d like us to take it seriously. We’ll still be in a transition period next season. So having to play the likes of Ghezzal and Iheanacho regularly in the league because of tiredness, rotation and loss of form due to the Europa could be a disaster. If we finish 7th next season however, we’ll have 4 transfer windows (including this one) to strengthen the squad and prepare properly for another European tour.

    Danny Drinkwater

    Great post, but Drinkwater was never good in a 3. Sarri has even been quoted saying Drinkwater is suited to a 2 man midfield, not a 3. I’d love for the 3 man midfield to work but for that system I don’t think Drinkwater’s the answer. He would however, improve the 4-2-3-1 formation massively in my opinion. We’d then be a right winger and another CF away from having a very strong side. Bring Drinkwater home!

    Wolves (A)..next up.

    Schmeichel Pereira, Morgan, Maguire, Chilwell Mendy, Choudhury, Ndidi Maddison Vardy, Barnes Would stick with the 3 man midfield as it’s away from home. I know Mendy should probably be dropped for his costly mistakes but the alternative is playing Ghezzal/Gray or Albrighton on the right in the 4-2-3-1. Wolves will come at us and the 3 in the middle will hopefully win the ball back and allow us to counter.
