    Does anyone else do something that's probably not wise to try and numb the pain? I.e. gambling, drugs, drinking etc. It's drinking for me.
  2. I'm not going to defend Puel after performances like that, but this has happened under the last three managers. Maybe these players need to take responsibility too?

    Southampton Home post match, 1-2 loss.

    There are things that people level at the manager that aren't fair. However, performances like this have been far too common and even I'm bored of it.

    Schmeichel needs dropping as well. Ward is a decent keeper and Schmeichel's distribution this season has been horrendous.

    Puel 'Facing the sack' - reports

    My thoughts exactly. I couldn't have put it any better myself.

    Kaputska cost £7.5m.

    Who is our best value for money signing?

    Seriously if you have to pick one it can't be anyone other than Mahrez. Signed for £400k, PFA player of the year, instrumental in us winning the league and sold for over £60 million. Don't even think it's up for debate.

    Huge shout out to Bobby Huth as well.

    You think he's been a worse signing than Kaputska, Hernandez, Silva, Iheanacho Musa etc? Not saying you're wrong, just like you to elaborate.
  10. Bit harsh. Yeah he's not great but he had a handful of decent games for us. It doesn't help his case that he was signed on the same day and for practically the same fee as Kante.
  11. I guess the reason why Akinbiyi features is because he was the record signing at a time when we didn't have anywhere near the resources we have now.
  12. Musa would definitely have been up there, but the fact that we managed to recoup most of what we paid for him has knocked him a fair few places down the list.
  13. In terms of transfer fee, wages (I know we don't know the ins and outs, but I'm sure we all have a rough idea) and resale value, who did you think is the worst signing we've ever made?

    He certainly wasn't a bad signing for us. A little bit sad that he's going actually. Though as others have mentioned, we will need to let a few go before we can get few in.

    Is this team even that good?

    We have some talented players but so do Everton, West Ham, Wolves, Bournemouth and Watford. Hence why that part of the table is very tight. I've said a few times that our squad isn't really much better (if at all) than the ones mentioned. I actually think if we finish 7th we'd have overachieved.
