  1. I'm as disappointed with Nacho as most, but when you need a goal what's the sense of bringing in a winger who spends all his time hugging the touchline, whilst nobody is in the penalty area. On top of which Ghezzal hasn't been playing well himself.
  2. Very puzzling why Nacho wasn't brought on instead of Ghezzal.

    Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha

    Probably prefers the away games, the way we play at home.

    Absolute legend. Came here after a very good goal scoring season in Germany and was also Japan's main goalscorer. We used him differently and he changed his game for the benefit of the team. You don't get many more selfless team players that sacrifice their game for the benefit of their team. Good luck Shinji, whatever happens you'll never be forgotten.

    Iborra Joins Villarreal

    Sad to see him go but perfectly understandable. Ironically Puel has switched to 433 which would've suited Iborra much better. Good luck to him and I hope he does really well at his new club.

    Kelechi Iheanacho / Nacho Man

    Was really pleased when we signed him considering his goals:games ratio, but after 18 months we need to cut our losses. He's terrible, standing around like a mannequin all game. Even league 2 defenders had him in their pockets. In one instance a ball was played over the top and the Newport CB beat him for pace. There simply isn't any accuses. There must be some Saudi/Chinese team that want him.

    His inclusion has completely changed the dynamic of the team. We matched Chelsea and Man City toe to toe and looked like the better team for large parts. I think Puel has finally found his best team and its all due to Hamza. Who would've thought.

    Danny Drinkwater

    He made his bed and now he can lie in it. Wasn't it the case when Pearson was here, that DD made it clear that he either played or wanted to leave. Well he got his move and I hope he's having a great time at Chelsea.
  9. Pickford is dogshit. He makes Karius look good.
  10. I think that's his biggest problem. The best players win the ball and look to be positive, Ndidi's 1st thought seems to be to pass backwards or to the man next to him. He needs a ball player next to him or he looks average. The problem we have is that both Iborra and Silva aren't effective in a 2 man mf. The only option therefore is to play 3 in mf, which i don't think Puel wants to do.
  11. Maddison has been Ok but nothing more. Jury is still out on Ricardo. Considering he was brought as a 20M+ RB, Puel has played him as much at RW as RB, so we don't even know his best position.

    Kelechi Iheanacho / Nacho Man

    One thing Puel has to realise is that Nacho can't play as a lone striker. He needs someone around him to do all the donkey work, pressing, closing down etc. If Vardy remains unfit I'd put shinji up with him and see how he goes.

    Islam Slimani to Fenerbahce (Loan)

    4% goal accuracy . The worst striker in the league. These are things you don't want to hear about your record 30M striker. The guy is destined to leave on a free when his contract expires.

    Happy Birthday Marc Albrighton

    Albrighton coming into the team in 2014, really kick-started our golden period. He's not the most spectacular but has played RB, RWB, RW and LW. Not many could do that in the PL. Happy Birthday
