  1. I totally understand the frustration around Puel but we need to give him time. He hasn't had a summer transfer window to re shape the squad to get them playing the way he wants. The January window is known as a hard window to go good work in and certainly can not over haul your squad mid season. Take into account that there are probably under lying issues going around and power struggles he's having to deal with, and he is trying to manage that. Which is more complicated as we imagine some of those players are title winning players and need to dealt with in the right way. We've come on a long way since Shakespeare so let's not forget that. He deserves more time, people need to get off his back and look at the positives of what he is trying to do.
  2. Adrien Silva

    Think he fit in better in a 3 man midfield where he can break forward more with less defensive responsibility. Gives the ball away too much, but think its about adapting to the Premier.
  3. Well done the Thais

    Mahrez has better goals and assists over the last few years than Coutinho who went for £142 million.. So in that respect the £95 we were asking for is a good price? It's all relative..
  4. I wouldn't worry about the media. It's only because they still see us as a small club still that means we should look closer to home for ours managers like the Burnleys of this world. Like someone mentioned, in the last 20 years we've had 12 British managers and 4 foreign. Do Southampton get criticised for not employing a British manager since they sacked Adkins? When did Watford last have a British manager? You could name a few.. It's only because people want to bring us down after our amazing title season that they are critising this. If we hadn't won the league no one would care. And if Claude gets off to a good start it will soon be forgotten anyway. Good Luck Claude!!
  5. Claude Puel - Contender

    If you want to feel a bit more optimistic then watch this..
  6. Claude Puel - Contender

    Looking for tactical analysis on Puel I came across this. Interesting read on Southamptons pre season last year. http://freshsaints.com/a-tactical-analysis-of-claude-puels-southampton/ Based on the read I'd play something along the lines of this Schmeichel Albrighton Maguire Dragovic Chilwell Ndidi Silva(James/King for now) Iborra Mahrez Vardy Iheanacho
  7. Kelechi Iheanacho

    looking back now, no. But at the time we was spending money and seemed exciting. How times have changed now
  8. Kelechi Iheanacho

    Looking at the cringey posts on Facebook memories about excitement over the likes of Matt Mills, Beckford and Co. Wow!!
  9. 4-4-2 or 3-5-2?

    Totally BUT just don't think that will happen. 343 would only work with two flair type wingers IMO. Or someone like Iheanacho playing off Vards and Gray the other side
  10. 4-4-2 or 3-5-2?

    There's also the option of 343 too which would accommodate the likes of Gray. I prefer the 352 myself
  11. Mahrez to .......................?

    Ah apologies dude. I haven't had chance to read it all.
  12. Mahrez to .......................?

    Just seen this. Don't know how true
  13. Will be an interesting summer that's for sure whether we stay up or go down.
  14. Ditch Ranieri

    Just can't see where our next goal is coming from never mind our next win!! Why stick with the same players that have let you down all season and not reward the players that played so well in mid week with a chance. Im genuinely starting to believe that we will get relegated.
