Frustrating... Puel was smart enough to see initial formation wasn't working and switched to 4 at the back. But that resulted in Albrighton at RB which they weren't comfortable with. Even if that's the case, when you're 1-1 at halftime away against maybe the best team on the planet, you don't change things (this is assuming Silva wasn't injured).
You can't go into that game expecting a point, but they still manage to make a loss seem particularly crappy even though it was expected. Both because a result was there to be had, and they ended up getting routed anyway due to lots of sloppiness.
It's hard to ignore the relatively consistent pattern of falling off a cliff in the 2nd half under Puel - but he deserves time to work out the kinks. If this is still happening this time next season, it'll be a different story.
And yes - it's Man City. Still - very frustrating from our end. Because it's not like today is the first time we've seen games play out this way this season.
I also have to say, I ****ing love Vardy. He is ALWAYS in it. It would be so easy for him to get pissed at that second half and check out... but he just never quits and never gives off any kind of negative vibes. Giving thumbs up at crappy service in the 91st min down 5-1. ****ing legend.
