    A total waste of time being a top 10 finish and taking and aging squad in dire need of a complete over haul and doing so, leaving us with a squad filled with huge potential? 


    Said top 10 finish and us being top half for almost the entire season this year, other than near his end justified keeping him here as long as we did. So did the job he was doing with the squad.


    I'm thrilled we've got Rodgers, he's a better manager and a better fit for the fans and the club. But the over the top absolute crap written about Puel is still just that.


    We are 8th, that's great and the football yesterday was probably the best all season. But we've relied on some awful misses by the opposition and some things going our way to manage to beat four teams who are in woeful form and the manager is benefitting hugely from the Tieleman's loan, something Puel never really got... and he's had us sat in 7th a numer of times.

    Good Grief - give it a rest!

    Many many times I said we should sack Puel immediately. So pleased I got it right. 

    I said the same (...many times) and yet was called many names (retard and muppet were my favourites) by those 'experts' who thought Puel was God, and who decided I had no right to hold a different opinion. So pleased to see City on the road to recovery - early days, but the signs look good already.

    It cant be anything other than ;













    Vardy brace, Rodgers in the stands, exciting day all round 




    100% agree with all of this. Lets keep crosses to a minimum - Duffy and co will eat them up - but they won't live with accurate, fast through balls from Tielemans and Maddison!

    Braces from Vardy AND Barnes!!

    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!!

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.
