  1. Ben Chillwell - How far will he go?

    I was hoping for more from him this season. You have to cut young players some slack, but the frustrating thing about Chilwell is he just seems to be going backwards. It's difficult to allow him the space to make mistakes when he's playing in a position where even a minor error can lead to us conceding a goal. Frankly I don't think he's a left-back and would be better trying to be a winger?
  2. Sheffield United Pre Match

    Hoping for a strong team. Shouldn't play Ndidi and James together (tonight, or ever frankly)...too similar and not enough forward movement.
  3. Friday night

    My understanding is that regardless of what we offered them, they could insist on a 15% allocation (4,800) as it's an FA Cup tie. However the final allocation has to be green-lighted by the Safety Advisory Group (i.e. the cops), so it's possible they rejected this - although I don't know. To be honest I'd be tempted to say it's possibly the latter, because I don't see why Sheff Utd. wouldn't have asked for the bigger allocation...
  4. Puel

    To be fair part of the problem is that he wants to play a possession game, but if you look at the squad he inherited there are a lot who are basically very talented hit n'run players. Every manager should be judged after he can bring in his own personnel and Puel is no different. Having said that he does make some decisions which are totally mystifying, hope he cuts that out sharpish...
  5. Man City Away Match Thread

    The wayward kicks, their third, their fourth. Possibly Kasper's worst game for us ever?
  6. Man City Away Match Thread

    Another tactical masterstroke from Puel at half-time...
  7. Well done the Thais

    Trouble is I don't see how this gets resolved, even in the summer. Reportedly clubs could have bought him for £50m last summer and declined. Now because of the mega-deals that have taken place since his price tag has gone up to £80m. Question is - why would the clubs that didn't bid £50m for him last summer pay £80m now, especially given his behaviour & the fact he's a year older? Either we're overestimating his value or bigger clubs are trying to have us on because they consider us small fry. In any case - the only way I can see him moving on is if we lower our expectations...but will that happen?
  8. Should Riyad Mahrez play for the club again?

    Presuming he's not included this weekend, that's three games he's missed. Only twelve games in the league remaining - we seem resigned to losing him after that anyway so if he's going to come back there's no point waiting too long. Given we're basically safe the club should put their foot down soon IMO. I mean how long can you just absent yourself from work without being fired?
  9. Swansea City (h) Post-Match 1-1

    Slightly frustrating that Fuchs is basically the only player in the whole squad who can cross a ball (or even take a corner) on a consistent basis. Albrighton second-best: some worldies sure, but half the time he fails to beat the first man or simply whacks it into an empty box without looking. So frustrating to watch, even if given our lack of height yesterday it was all a slightly pointless endeavour.
  10. Swansea City (h) Post-Match 1-1

    The absence of Mahrez will grab the headlines but Puel lost us that one with his awful substitutions. I admire the way he's improved our style of play but dear me some of his decision-making beggars belief let's be honest.
  11. Next up.. Peterborough.. (A) F A cup.

    Because, erm...it could backfire and we get knocked out? Yes Peterborough are a League One side on paper - but football isn't played on paper and it is reasonable to expect that they will up their game for the occasion. Granted, they should still be weaker but in cup games the disparity can often be reduced, and we should pick a side accordingly (and often don't). Silva would benefit from game time but he doesn't need it - he will get plenty of games I'm sure in the second half of the season. Equally, Simpson will get game time in the league when he's fit again, as should Huth (and Barnes, and Diabaté) if they can justify it. But Slimani and Iheanacho only 'need game time' because they can't get in the first team, despite their massively inflated transfer fees. Poor signings have left us with a bloated squad full of players who need to be unjustifiably rotated in and out to keep them happy - but let's not potentially jeopardise a cup run because of that!
  12. Fleetwood FA Cup post match 2-0

    Decent result but a rather needless replay to be honest. Just shows that 'resting' players can backfire if you come up a side taking it more seriously than you. Hopefully Puel will have learned a lesson before the Peterborough game, which will be more difficult.
  13. Fleetwood Town (A) 0-0 FA Cup 3rd Round

    Crap team selection and a disgraceful lack of effort. As others have said, they simply don't seem to care.
  14. Fleetwood Town (A) Match Thread

    We should have enough but I'll be livid if we don't after this team selection. At least the bell seems to be tolling for Musa - if he can't get in this squad, there is clearly no point keeping him on the books. Disappointed he hasn't given Iheanacho a go - he hasn't looked good but to be fair he's never had a proper run in the side since he moved.
  15. Transfer Window - January

    Ideal sells: Musa, Slimani, Ulloa, Benny Ideal buys: new RB, new winger, new forward Ideal keep: Mahrez I agree we won't get much for offloading our deadwood, but it has to be done I'm afraid. At least we'll save the money on wages.
