  1. Do people really think that if we had Pep in charge we would win the league this year or something? The growth of a club has to be gradual (incorporating youth, something Puel is noted for) winning the league out of the blue does not move a club to automatically be challenging. He isn’t my favourite, quite meh, but it is not a popularity contest and seems the right ‘type’ of manager In the current culture of instant gratification, patience is tough, but it would be by far the best signing we could make!

    Adrien Silva

    Drinkwater came from man united with a point to prove. He did that, got his big move to Chelsea, failed and now...? i would be doubtful he would have the heart for the fight if he returned.
  3. It would be a shock to hear a fan of a historically big club say otherwise wouldn`t it?

    Gray ??

    Perhaps they skipped the Bird and the Bees talk and thought he was in labour? (sorry, meant to quote Suzie the Fox)

    The OH Leuven Thread

    No-one polarises opinion quite like Saint Nige/NFP (delete as appropriate) (Not even Big Dan or Gray)

    So, 5 games in...

    Puel has been here about a year, but during this time he could not implement the system he desired as the players he needed for the new system were not at the club until the recent transfer window. So the whole been here a year is not quite right, Bit of a cop out I know, but this feel like a fact too me. (Slight Puel apologist, but I think we underestimate the task he has.) However - he now has his players mostly (the article about bidding/enquiring for Golovin was interesting but maybe rubbish) but I do think he wanted more creativity. (So maybe we will see Barnes back in Jan?) He has what he has, it should be better than a lot of teams in the league and critical judgement begins in earnest NOW. Unfortunately he faces perceived lower quality teams which we struggle to break down/create against.

    I agree with much of the above - the title winning style has a fairly simple answer (sit deeper), that many teams never bothered with against these bubble soon to burst upstarts. (Its pretty one dimensional, but extremely pleasing on the eye when it works - which it obviously did!) But possesion based build up play leads to many variations when attacking, and is thus far more difficult to mitigate the dangers.

    Puel goes. Who do you choose?

    The squad was getting too old, it had to change on a fairly seismic level. He has begun. Change is painful and disruptive. Puel has a history of blooding and developing youth over a long period. (Different league granted) Individual games may be disappointing, the season may be disappointing, BUT these are your/our expectations and do not hopefully reflect the owners longer term strategy. As long as finish in the top half, i would consider this a successful first transition season from which we would push on (and on) Disclaimer This is an opinion....

    Agree with this. (Normal pitch forks, torches and agenda pushing on the match thread) assuming your our name is accurate, how is Florence effecting things?
