    Puel In / Out Poll (12/01/19)

    Up until now, the argument has mainly been about whether it's worth the risk to get rid of Puel. I think the danger for him is that at some point, unless results pick up, fans may reverse that question and ask - with one eye on next season - is it worth the risk to stay with him? If we don't get any points from our next three games (entirely possible)...we'll have lost 6 games in a row in all competitions, and the gap to the zone could be down to 8/9 points. That's still comfortably above the zone, but it could be close enough to get people to get scared for next year...

    Wolves (A)..next up.

    I'd go for: Kasper Ricardo Morgan Maguire Chilwell Albrighton Choudhury Ndidi Maddison Barnes Vardy

    Barnes coming back

    I don't know whether these stats back me up or not, but I do suspect that Gray has regressed from last season (rather than simply standing still). He's had a bigger bite at the cherry too - he's started 54% of our league games so far, compared to 44% last season. I think he's one of those players who needs to crack on pretty soon or else maybe people will conclude he can't cut it in the PL? Even if that happens though, he was probably still worth the risk given he only cost £3.7m - which is nothing these days for a young winger. At the end of the day, for that kind of investment you have to accept there is a risk someone won't make it...

    Claude Puel calls for a Leicester City reality check

    He’s cleverly distorted the situation by implying the fans think we should be 6th - which paints us as unreasonable. Unfortunately for Puel, that is not the situation amongst the fan base at all. In fact, people are angry at not taking the cups seriously, poor performances at home and constant tinkering. Yes other PL clubs rotated for the FA cup, that’s true... But how many are sure of staying up without competing at the top end? How many used an away tie in the 3rd round to bring back a player who’s been sidelined for 10 months through injury? How many made a ‘sympathy substitution’ (King) utterly unsuited to the game? Puel’s rant yesterday was just an attempt to distract attention from his failings. And anyway, we won’t finish 7th...more like 11-14 or so at this rate.

    Barnes coming back

    I'm up for this, as long as he gets played and we don't expect the world from him on day one. Worth pointing out that despite his terrible inconsistency, Gray has still been handed 12 starts in our 21 league games so far. And in those 12 games, his contribution has been erm...two goals and one assist. So tbh if he's started more than half our league games, I'm hopeful Barnes will get a decent run even if he's inconsistent too...

    Southampton (H).. pre match thread

    I'd agree with you, but I also have a feeling of cold dread inside me that he'll start with Ghezzal for some reason. But yeah...he'll definitely stick with the 4-2-3-1. Because, y'know, he's Puel...

    Europa League

    I know what you mean, but I suppose they don't have to go... For what it's worth I will admit that the early stages are likely to be a bit crap, but if we got through to the group stage there would be some good games as well. I mean look at some of the clubs in the group stage this year: AC Milan, Lazio, Marseille, Sevilla, Sporting Lisbon... I think we'd all admit we can hardly turn our noses up at clubs like those, surely!

    Europa League

    Tbh if we're not taking either of the cups seriously and don't even want to qualify for the Europa League, you have to ask: what's the point of even being a professional club?

    Newport away match thread

    Cut to the pundits after the game: “It’s RIDICULOUS there’s pressure on Puel, RIDICULOUS”. Or maybe not...

    Man City H Post Thread 2-1

    I know what you mean. Having said that Puel spent the entire pre-season and first part of this season trying to set us up as a 4-2-3-1 side. Then after Vardy publicly complains about his system and the papers report he’s on the verge of being sacked, he suddenly changes to a 4-3-3? Personally I struggle to believe this was all part of some grand plan... More likely that he mixed things up because he felt he had to and it’s worked. Don’t get me wrong, he deserves credit for trying it...but for me this seems a case of necessity being the mother of invention.

    Teams wanting our players

    Personally I think it’s more likely they’ll be sniffing around Maddison/Chilwell/Ricardo than Maguire. I’d be sad to see him go but I’d rather lose him than one of those three. Tbh part of me still thinks our best centre-back pairing is Morgan + Evans anyway...

    Chelsea (A) Match Thread

    I have no idea how that team is going to set up, which says it all really. Mid-December and we are still to name an unchanged team in a league game. Last roll of the dice from Puel?

    Time for Puel to go

    Can’t see us getting much out of the Chelsea, Man City & Everton games. I think for a lot of people the Cardiff home game is going to be absolutely key. Anything less than a decent win from that and things might get interesting. What he did with that team selection in the league cup on Tuesday was stupid...it’s lost him a lot of goodwill when he needs it

    Chelsea (a) Pre-match thread 22nd December

    Hope I'm proved wrong but can't see us getting anything here. It will be the same old - one man up front, two defensive midfielders, no creativity.

    Man City (EFL Cup - 18/12/18) - Match Thread

    This is ****ing hopeless. Feels like we’re playing a 4-6-0.
