  1. Name a better option than puel

    If Puel isn't here next season then I'll thank him for getting us comfortably safe this season. Back in October I honestly thought we'd end up like another Sunderland if we didn't get the appointment right.
  2. Name a better option than puel

    Heard a rumour(probably bollocks) that we even had Wagner in the building back in February last year.
  3. Name a better option than puel

    All the names that have been mentioned on here as alternatives to Puel whether they be Benitez, Wagner, Dyche, Hughton, Howe etc. have all needed time to build what they wanted to at their respective clubs. Why would they want to come here if they're under pressure at the slightest hint of a bad run? You tell me.
  4. Name a better option than puel

    I've heard that we've been interested in him in the past.
  5. Safe standing - time to act

    That's how it is in Germany to be fair.
  6. Safe standing - time to act

    In what way is it oppressive? If anything it'll clear out people standing in seating areas so you sit without being disturbed by those wanting to stand.
  7. Name a better option than puel

    If the club know they can attract a manager who is undoubtedly a better option than Puel and can line them up then by all means they should do it. What we absolutely can't do is just sack Puel with nobody lined up. I'm worried that we sack Puel realise that no one wants the job and end up with one of these washed up managers from the carousel of shite. If they're going to change, the process has to be spot on.
  8. Premier League, 2017-2018 Season Thread

    There's a five point gap between Swansea in 17th and Southampton in 18th with five games to go. That's pretty commanding. Things may change, but I doubt it.
  9. Premier League, 2017-2018 Season Thread

    This has probably been the worst premier league season ever. The title has been done and dusted since November, the top four has been sorted for weeks, the relegation battle looks like it's probably sorted and there are so many bang average teams in the league. The style of football you see being played throughout the other top leagues in Europe is far more commendable as is their policy of bringing through young players. Just think the premier league this season hasn't had anything going for it whatsoever.
  10. Puel

    We'd have missed out on 7th with Fuchs in the team. Don't kid yourself in thinking otherwise.
  11. Puel

    Chilwell has played well the last few games. Amazing how Fuchs has suddenly become a worldbeater whilst not being in the side despite him being responsible for us conceding goals this season. Puel is being afforded that luxury because we're not in danger of being relegated, if we were in this position under Shakespeare he wouldn't be under pressure. There's the difference. For me there's no point of Puel going now.
  12. Burnley post match 2-1 loss

    May I just remind some that this season Rafa Benitez went 8 league games without a win and Sean Dyche went 11 league games without a win. Both managers who many on here would take over Puel. I'm not saying that I wouldn't have either managers here, but the point is that all managers have poor spells. Puel might not be the right man, but what I'm concerned about is if we got a new manager in and they went a few games without winning, would they be under pressure? Knowing our fans, they definitely would be.
  13. Burnley post match 2-1 loss

    After the first twenty minutes today we played well. Bare in mind we were depleted in central midfield and were away to a side who are having a great season. What really bothered me is how soft those two goals were and how we just gifted it to them.
  14. Name a better option than puel

    If we end up sacking Puel, then are we going to at least start questioning the players and whoever is responsible for appointing and sacking managers?
  15. What gigs are you going?

    Next one for me is Japanese Breakfast in Nottingham next month.
