  1. Seen this a lot from our players this season. Better team on what grounds? Possession? Shots? Certainly weren't better in terms of goals or even quality of chance creation.
  2. My big worry is that the Puel style was supposed to aid us in these types of games where we had lots of possession. Man City, Chelsea and Everton mean we can play counter attack, and we're very good at that. Puel was supposed to transition us in to a team who knew what to do with the ball but we look largely clueless. Long punts towards Iheanacho today. Why? Just moronic. I know he can't account for players missing good chances but we're talking about a league 2 side today. If a player isn't up for the task don't send him out there. Inexcusable.
  3. Bold move. Especially for a manager that has divided fans.
  4. Major concern still not addressed for me is inability to put a performance in against those we will be competing for places with. Loads of home games against weaker opposition where we were terrible. This season we've put in good performances against Utd and Liverpool and probably half of a game against Wolves (once on top). Truth is that mixed results is part and parcel of a being a mid table team now. The gap between 8th and 17th is small and a few extra wins can make you look relatively comfortable. We saw with Stoke and West Brom last season that that gap can soon vanish though and those concerns are there for me.
  5. Not a modern fullback but a proper defender. Bailed us out at the back post on numerous occasions. Would personally keep him
  6. We all knew it was coming. Think it's a fair price. You can talk about Coutinho fees but got to remember for every one of them there's a Salah. Not that many players have been sold for greater sums. Got to spend it wisely now. Seen teams try to spread out windfalls in the past and it doesn't work. Only way to replace a star is to buy another star. Don't normally call for marquee signings but could be the time. Business has been good so far this summer so hopefully that continues. After their Ranieri songs and throwing weight around Man City are becoming another horrid club to me. Inevitable with success I guess. Enjoy an 80% filled stadium for champions league nights Riyad.
