    City mean way more to me than they should. I’m 52 and should no better. But I feel pretty darn sad about it all tonight. Tonight’s game was a chastening experience and everything feels wrong at the moment. 


    I simply don’t think Claude has the charisma to inspire the players or the supporters, and hence it’s time for him to be removed. God knows who we get to replace him. 

    As a Harpenden fox myself, I am pleased that you are finally seeing the light, Puel-wise!!

  2. Loss







    Fact, and yes, I know, many of you will deny this and slate me for pointing it out - but fact anyway.

    So - he has a plan?  What is it?

    So - he brings through youth * - but whats the point when you lose practically every game? Any manager (my granny?) Could put in eleven 16 year olds and lose every game. Does it make her a good manager? or even one with a plan?

    He IS a fraud. He needs to go.

    * fed up of having this 'puel promotes youth' thing pushed all the time, I checked the ages of our squad expecting to find plenty of teenagers (nil) and a couple of twenty year olds (nil) - so maybe not using youth as much as most other premier sides - check their squads for teenagers if you don't believe me.

  3. When we lost to an understrength Spurs a fortnight ago  the reaction on here was one of massive arrousal!  (We did lose, by the way). I'm wondering if I should buy shares in The Kleenex Corporation with todays magnificent performance.

    I've been watching football for 53 years and CANNOT see where all this enthusiasm comes from when the football is an absolute joke. A Taylor-esque run of results. He needs to go. NOW.

  4. All silliness aside, and i do apologise for being part of it (as well as making an enormous cock-up by starting this thread in the first place!!), I really thought that MA was in charge for TWO games - both of which were victories. I know its not important, but can anyone enlighten me?

    Technically there's no points available from a cup game so you'd never count that into a discussion on points hauls in X many games, so technically you're not, you're just a muppet

    Nit picking AND name calling. 

    Peurile and pathetic - always seems to be some kind of desperation about those supporters of a lost cause.

    Aside from that the form table has us on 4 points from our last 6: http://www.footstats.co.uk/index.cfm?task=formguide so that's not true...

    Oh, sorry - forgot that the ONE draw and FIVE defeats in the past SIX games included that glorious match at Newport County. Such a shame that Puel fans have to revel in a defeat to a fourth division side. Technically we didnt pick up any points from that game so technically I'm correct. But hey ho - enjoy the fact that we haven't had a win since January 1st and carry on with petty nit-picking.

    As Jonathon Northcroft alludes to on that podcast, we may well look back upon Claude Puel with some gratitude in the long run. It has been his job to transition us and that was always going to be tricky. However I'm not convinced that he can make a full success of it. There are too many weaknesses with the man himself that I just can not ever see changing.


    I think he's put some good foundations in place but I'd want someone else to come in to build the house and decorate it.

    Nicely put.

  8. Think I've said before how good it is to see the positivity shown in this topic - in fact the only negativity seemed to be my gloomy opening post which has recieved a huge ammount of bad feedback!  Sorry!

    However, having watched the match 3 more times since getting home, I would say, tentatively, that Tottenham helped us look 'improved' by the fact that they played absolute shite! In fact I'm pretty sure that any premier league team (other than ourselves and Huddersfield) would've absolutely mullered them!! Hopefully the improved performance will eventually lead to improved results - but, with Monsieur Puel at the helm, I honestly cant see it. Again, sorry!!

    The why matters.


    Cos Spurs scored three and we scored one.

    Cos Puel decided to bench the only player who can score for us.

    Cos, basically, this side has forgotten how to win - loss after loss after loss - confidence totally drained by an inept manager who is completely out of his depth.

    Loss after loss after loss...Spurs are 3rd we played them on their designated turf!!? Spurs can't ever this season be rated has poor...!!I

    If it's passed not just you but all,who are again using today to have another b o r I n g   go at the manager...all those losses were with Vardy the goal-scorer, failing to convert..!!!   

    I for one enjoyed his selection,giving more movement,because Tielemans our new loan,realised today his potential and hit the ground running...

    But no again The childish Puel out brigade have to keep gnawing on a bone,even making up stories over older players disenchantment!!!!


    Today's story for normal people.... "Is Tieleman the player,who he!ps to fit the puzzle in Puel s youth revelution". 

    What a solid PL start..

    His movement,and skill-set, seen him up the potential of young players Barnes,Maddison,Gray,and Ndidi...This young team outmanouevered,a normal Slick Spurs...Barnes,could of eased to an hattrick..but more importantly,it looks like Leicester have turned a corner on front-foot, solid performance,that should of eased Puels, Fans, and players own minor worries....

    Tieleman has shown and proven what Leicester have been missing...

    Today again individual mistakes lost them the Game....

    They didn't miss Vardy,because he also hasn't been converting and like today in hit n miss form!!

    so why shouldn't Puel try something  new,   with Vardy as the man  who can change things from the bench!!


    but no ,Noooo. the negatives have to be played out,insistent and continuous...whine with wein,bleat with beer,moan worse than fisherman's wives..!!


    Which  now is going too far  killing any enjoyment on this forum...

    not Puel but this negative Plague is dragging,my favourite forum into the pits....It's taken over and it passes by

    without thought the normal and actual headlines and banter of the gameplay play.

    Feeds the cretin press and media that use 600 posters views of (look at polls) posters determined to

    undermine and not support the club,at least once a week!!!!     

    Tielemans and the positive performances these are the REAL stories....!!

    Foxes young guns,slowly getting there....


    Yes. But we lost. Again.

    How anyone could blame Claude for today's loss is a mystery to me. His tactics were terrific, as was his choice of personnel. We should've led 2-0 after 20 minutes, but our young players are still learning how not to let nerves affect them when finishing. Barnes choked repeatedly, as did Gray. Even Vardy gagged with that mediocre PK. 


    The reality is, we outplayed Spurs for the majority of the game. We created better chances. We look like a top-6 club for massive stretches, but our futility in front of goal is killing us.


    The answer to that is to let the lads play through it. We now have a run of games where we should be winning most all of them. We will be the better team the next 9 matches in a row. This is the time to keep this personnel grouping -- including keeping Vardy on the bench -- and let then work through their nerves. Which they will do if we let them. These players need time together, need to keep gelling, and if we use the remainder of the season to get their confidence right, then next season we can genuinely challenge for Europe (we'll need a Tiel-type in the summer to replace him, obv).


    Keep this starting 11, keep this manager. We are going to start racking up wins, beginning immediately. Keep Tiel in and Gray up front. Let the next 9 matches decide Puel's fate.

    We lost.

    I must be possibly the only one on here that thinks if Vardy were playing with a smile on his face, in a system that created good chances, he’d still be banging em in, 32 or not.

    Vardy’s got plenty of goals left in him. He isn’t your slightly overweight, coming to the end of his career type striker. There’s nowt on him and he’s as fit as a flea.

    Maybe I’ve missed it but I’ve still not seen many posters who were fully behind the decision to bench Vardy, now coming out and saying it was a daft decision.

    Thats FT for ya.

    I've ran out of rep today - but I fully agree with you. Need to find that system to bring the smile back (......and I know how to start......:whistle:)
