Ok - Puel wouldn't have been at the top of my list, but he is here now. Having read lots of posts, comments and related articles over the last couple of days, two things stand out for me:
- Southampton's defensive record was quite good last season - 48 goals conceded (better than everyone else bar Everton on 44 and the top 6)
- Southampton created lots of chances (see 80's Fox's clip on another post) - it was their finishing that let them down
If Puel can stop us conceding many of the silly goals we have this season ( and last), and if he can get us to create those chances AND convert them................. who knows. Are our current goals scorers better than those Southampton had last year?
Time will tell no doubt!
