  1. Think it was the first step towards becoming a team much more comfortable in possession. Counter attack will always be a strength but can see us having abit more guile and skill up top to break down stubborn defences with Mahrez and Gray both playing.
  2. Wouldn’t be surprised if Puel goes abit more defensive, maybe bring another midfielder in and have gray and mahrez on the wings, 4-3-3. But then again, in reality we have no idea, don’t think anyone saw the changes coming for yesterday’s match, so who knows what he does when he’s had another week on the training ground.
  3. The Iborra Thread

    Have to say after the Liverpool cup match I thought he looked way too slow and awkward to compete in Premier League. He is showing that the more he gets up to speed the more class he adds to the midfield. Has the turning speed of a barge but has more game intelligence than the rest of the team put together. Come January and him and Silva could form a partnership that dominates games.
  4. The Claude Puel Era - what will he bring?

    Not sure if this has already been said, but Puels Southampton actually created the 7th highest amount of chances last season, there conversion rate was the worst in the league. His biggest challenge will be to change our style of play to a more possession based side, but this is something that we may have to do to kick on and become more consistent. The more I think about the appointment the more I think it will work, just needs to be given time.
  5. Welcome Claude .... positive posts only

    Can’t wait for Monsieur Claude to work his magic. Get us solid at the back, get the best out of Riyad and then look at making us more possession based. Positive vibes! Allez les Renards!!
  6. Claude Puel - Contender

    Whilst not the most exciting announcement ever made, there are certain things you can look at that show promise. Let’s give the guy a chance, get behind him, 8th and cup final will do nicely!
  7. What exactly do the owners want?

    Your right, it’s very difficult to do without a huge budget, you can only really look at Spurs and Man City as doing it, and Spurs have taken years to do it. My point is that I think the owners have unnecessararily high expectations for the time being.
  8. What exactly do the owners want?

    Interesting that the club is voting for a change in money distribution, this implies they are confident we will finish top 8 year on year. I think they want us to be a consistent top 6 side, unfortunately I don’t feel they have any clue of what it takes to get us there.
  9. Next City Manager?

    Puel isn’t that bad a choice, bit of an overreaction on here. Yes, doesnt play the most attacking football, but Southampton haven’t exactly scored loads since he’s left so obviously wasn’t all him. Did very well in France, and got southampton to 8th and cup final. Compared to Pardew & Coleman, he’s a decent shout. Not too many options out there!
  10. Manuel Pellegrini

    I’ll be happy with this! Esteban as his assistant 😜
  11. Claude Puel - Contender

    If you actually look at his managerial record, he has had relative success at every job. Not my first choice but we could do a lot worse!
  12. Next City Manager?

    I can’t argue with you that Dyche would consider us a step up from Burnley, or take any shit due to incompetence around him. But if I was him, I’d be holding tight and eyeing up the everton job instead (if I wasn’t a Leicester fan of course!)
  13. Next City Manager?

    They would have a large transfer budget, but we have spent big in the last couple of years and done nothing. A change of manager won’t change that as it’s becoming clear the manager isn’t making all decisions on transfers.
  14. Next City Manager?

    Really don’t see why any manager currently in a job would look at how the club is run and think it’s an attractive proposition. Blanc would be incredible, I’d even be happy with Sam. But you just know it will be Coleman or Pardew and we will have taken another step back.
  15. So what's wrong?

    The more I think about it, the less I blame Shakespeare, and feel he was harshly dealt with. the general running of the club is awful, and if it doesn’t change, we will get relegated in the next 3-5 years. You cannot continue having awful transfer windows where the squad gets weaker with each one, we are going backwards. I don’t see how any manager could get long term consistent results in these circumstances. The club needs a shake up from top to bottom, unfortunately I don’t see it happening, so we will continue to slowly slide down the league. Yes we won the league a couple of years ago, but instead of using that as a platform to be a solid consistent top 8 side, we are using it as a crutch to hold up staff members making ever increasing bad decisions with no reprocussions.
