    Celtic Fans

    To be fair to Celtic they are a huge club with fans all over the world, were they to have access to the money and appeal of PL football to sign players then I image there would be every chance they could compete well, although to say they’d be top 6 no problem is a bit bold to say the least. For someone to say they’d be no bigger than Cardiff or Swansea is rubbish, neither of those sides fill/filled their stadium week in week out whilst playing in the PL, Celtic get 50,000+ every week whilst playing in the SPL. To comment on the original post, I have seen on here fans suggest we sign Rashford and someone the other day suggest bidding 40m for Son, so for us to turn round and call a few Celtic fans on the internet deluded is somewhat hypocritical.

    Gray ??

    I think there's been a massive improvement in Gray this season, his decision making has improved and as others have said the way he links with Chilwell and Maddison has at times been very good, I think we have looked dangerous down our left side a lot of the time. He does sometimes start well and drift out of games which is frustrating, but we are a quarter of the way though the season and despite missing a few games through injury he has scored 2 goals and had an assist, if he carries on at this rate and gets around 10 goals plus a few assists, which he is more than capable of, then I think that would represent a very good season for him.

    Mohamed Elneny

    He's no marquee signing, but surely Silva isn't going to be around for much longer and if the reports of Iborra potentially returning to Spain are true then it would make sense, especially with James' ongoing fitness issues and King's absence from the 25 man squad. He's a tidy player who has experience in the league and would fit into how Puel wants us to play. This may well be a lazy journalist rehashing an old rumour but I wouldn't be surprised if we had retained an interest.

    That “Handball” last night

    It is definitely a penalty, it's not intentional but it is clumsy, I can only assume that the referee has seen the slight coming together between Holding and Wilf and assumed that is what has caused it and therefore decided it is ball to hand. I don't think it's a second yellow though as I don't think it wasn't deliberate and also that the contact with Wilf has somewhat contributed to it happening.

    At the start of the second half last night we didn't lump a diagonal ball towards the oppositions right back and straight out of play, for that alone I say give him the summer, Puel in!

    Marc Albrighton charged

    The most annoying thing about this is not the surely extended ban but that from where I was it didn’t look like Zaha was going to get anywhere near the ball, so therefore surely not denying an obvious goal scoring opportunity. Admittedly I haven’t been too fussed to watch the highlights and therefore haven’t seen a replay so that may be complete rubbish.

    Helicopter has landed

    It is without doubt being exaggerated by some, as you say this is what it turned into the following season but it was not how we won the league, we may have played more long passes than most but a long pass does not equate to a ‘lump forward’. I remember us playing this way for 3 quarters of the season, by the time teams started to really respect us and change their game plan to counter ours we had so much momentum and belief in ourselves that we were always able to find a way to score. Without Kante and that momentum/belief behind us we had to find a different way to play, it was the perfect game plan for that time but now we don’t have the luxury of teams letting us manage the game in this way as most teams aside from the top 6 will come to the King Power and happily leave with a point. I also don’t think that at the moment our defence is good enough for us to play this way as they couldn't withstand the pressure of conceding 65% possession without giving up a goal or 2. I am not excusing recent performances as they have been dire, and as much as I hate to see us as one of those teams who will be changing manager every 6 months I think it needs to be time for Puel to go, but I do understand the notion of finding an alternative way of playing.

    Europa League

    After the penalty Atletico got in the first leg against us last year I have zero sympathy for them when it comes to refereeing decisions.

    Ricardo Pereira

    Looks class going forwards in those videos, can he defend as well?

    I honestly feel that he is not quite ready for one of the 'bigger' clubs. He has been quality for us but he has made a few mistakes, they go a under the radar here in the media but were he at one of the Manchester clubs or Arsenal they would definitely have been picked up on. He's 25, I think one possibly two more seasons here would be best for him, and that is not me being biased, I don't think anyway.

    I've never been able to make up my mind on what I think of him. As an option to go more direct and hold the ball up I think he could be good for us. However at the same time I can just as easily envisage him fracturing Harry's eye socket during training in pre season and then giving a last minute penalty away having just come on for his debut as a substitute in the first game of the season.

    Wenger out

    You'd have to think they won't make the same mistake as United and go down the route of a Moyes style appointment. I expect to see Ancelotti or the Monaco manager or at least someone of that ilk, but on the other hand the LA Rams, Kroenke's NFL team, appointed a young head coach last year and had their best season for ages, so he might be inclined to down that route. It will probably depend on how much say Wenger has on who it is.
  13. Shocked with how negative Southampton were, surely they need to go for wins at this stage, they came and stuck 11 behind the ball against a team not in great form and with nothing to play for, and apart from 10 mins at the end of the first half showed no real intention of trying to score. Apart from the time in the second half when the ball deflected into Shane Long's path and Hamer had to make a smart save did they have a shot on target?

    Demarai Gray

    Looked fairly lively in periods last night and made some positive contributions. Towards the end of the game though he seemed to start strolling around at times which was a bit infuriating.

    Adrien Silva

    Thought he was poor last night. What is frustrating about him is that he plays and is involved in some lovely passing moves, but then under hits a square pass in the middle of the pitch and gives the ball away cheaply. There is undoubted quality there but the lapses in concentration are far too frequent at the moment. Needs a full pre season to get fully up to speed I feel.
