    Crystal Palace (A) 15 Dec Pre Match Thread

    Yeah this is a pretty big game for both sides. With Man City and Chelsea next we need a result. A draw at the very least with a positive performance will do. Vardy on the bench unless he's 100%, we need him fit for the cup game. I want to see if Iheanacho can play himself into some but his confidence is so shot that we are basically starting a man down. I'd experiment with Gray up top, can't be no worse.

    Interesting to see what he does with Iheanacho. Chopping and changing won’t help him but can he afford to keep faith.

    Spurs can definitely win in Barcelona, with them already group winners. I think they will have a mind on that but I don't think they'll rest Kane. Ndidi keeps his place for this one as we're likely to be without the ball more. Ricardo obviously comes back in, part of me expects it will be Simpson and Ricardo on the right. Albrighton going over to the left. If Vardy isn't available I think I'd be tempted to go with Gray/Diabate down the middle instead of Iheanacho.

    FA cup 2018/19

    Woking v Watford at 2pm on BT sport so I imagine we'll either be 4pm or maybe a 12pm? Unless they throw in something strange like a 6pm like they have done in the past.

    Watching Iheanacho last night, it made we wish we signed Diouf in the summer. Least he would have ran a bit.

    Fingers crossed Vardy is fit, and hopefully Evans too if Maguire isn't. I worry about Morgan in these games but he's going to play. We could quite easily get battered here, but then I wouldn't be surprised to see us win either.

    Fulham 1 - 1 Leicester Post Match Thread

    I've seen quite a few people say that this squad should be challenging higher but in the same breath saying how shit everyone is. It might be the most expensive but its nowhere the best squad we've ever had. There's potential in a few players but that's all it is. Our results have been typical of where we are, inconsistent but still good enough to keep us top half. The fact that we as a fan base cannot agree whether we have a good squad or not probably says it all. Too many players were off their game last night, Kasper's distribution, Chilwell was getting frustrated with ball's going over his head, Mendy looks frustrated, Ndidi was at his worst with his passing, Iheanacho may as well not played because he offered no focal point, Maddison got the goal in the end but was anonymous until then. Actually thought Diabate was lively at times in first half and I'd have took Iheanacho off instead of him. Simpson defended well enough but a right side of him and Albrighton made me shiver.

    Sometimes I look at our squad and think we should be challenging top 6 then sometimes I think Puel is performing a miracle keeping us in the top half.

    Dreadful game and performance but we take our point and move on. Puel looked as annoyed as me watching that shit. We seen the difference having Ricardo in the team, surely he has a niggle? Iheanacho was abysmal.
  10. We don't need to panic too much in January, if someone's available or we want to get in before other teams come knocking in the summer then fair enough but we don't need to buy for the sake of it. Priority is clearly a winger and a striker. I like Gray, I love Albrighton, and I even think Ghezzal has shown the odd glimpse but we need something else. A winger who can play centrally as well would be perfect. Central midfield options could be better but I don't think its urgent. Central defender who wants to play on the right side would be great, which side has Benkovic been playing on? Maguire, Evans prefer the left and even Soyuncu came on and went straight to the left on Saturday.

    Watford post-match 2-0 Puel out chit-chat

    I don't think there was that much difference to previous performances, obvious difference being we managed to get in front and took our chances. Watford were creating a bit but for some reason I always felt comfortable. Ricardo is improving defensively, partly down to having Albrighton in front of him, this in turn is making Morgan look more comfortable. Ricardo still done easy by a one two at times but there has been some impressive back post defending recently. Big fan of Mendy and thought he was excellent again and Maddison was improved.
  12. Worth noting that in most of our games, maybe not that last night, we have periods of a game where we do play some excellent stuff. We aren't able to sustain a performance though and we're not ruthless enough at the minute when on top. Take Burnley for example, we should have been a couple of goals up in the first half. I remember some of the games last season too where he failed to take our chances and then faded badly.
  13. People always throw the 'deliberate' argument in but if that was taken literally they'd be very few hand balls given. It needs a common sense approach and refs need to decide whether it can be avoided and whether the player has gained an unfair advantage. I've said it before but I wouldn't even give penalties for handballs unless it was obviously deliberate and/or stops a clear goal. Just be an indirect free kick.
  14. Maguire and Evans are our best defenders currently but they both want to play on the left. Maguire needs to be tried on the right when he's fit.
  15. All I had was twitter updates for the match so can't judge performance but the lack of updates during the game pretty much says it all. We're through though and we get another chance to be better. I don't think Puel is trying to play some difficult brand of football. Attacking full backs, 2 strong sitting midfielders and a front 4 who should be good enough to create something. The players are showing themselves to be lacking in ability, consistently at least. I love Vardy but we can't just hit over the top for him all the time, he needs to offer something else. We still haven't solved the number 10 position. For various reasons we've not been able to pick a consistent front 4. Missed full backs last night too. For me, unless we are in danger of relegation Puel should get January to fill the holes and then see where we are in the summer. I wouldn't say the players aren't playing for him.
