    Benkovic January Recall?

    It's far more sensible to leave both to play every week and develop as both men and footballers out on loan. I'd rather have two new starters ready for next season than bring them back to warm the bench in January.

    Do you want mahrez back?

    Lol, didn't take long. Given the wages he's on now at MC I doubt we'd be in contention if he did become available.

    Used to be tough to get tickets for games like this one as well.

    Huddersfield (H)..up next!

    People wanting four fullbacks in the starting lineup!? You can see why they want Benitez.

    Harvey Barnes - West Brom (loan)

    Pussy. Barnes is better than Mahrez.

    What to do about the defense?

    I actually think there are a couple of obvious tweaks that would make the world of difference. Firstly, playing two centre backs as slow as Maguire and Morgan so high up the pitch is suicidal, particularly against pace like on Saturday. The first thing to address this is to bring in a more mobile centre back to partner one of these lads, both Evans and Soyuncu need trying, despite Evans shaky game against Wolves. I can't see that Harry Mag would be dropped, so out goes Morgan, suspended or not. You could argue away from home that sitting 5-10 yards deeper wouldn't be the end of the world, either. Secondly, I think the fullbacks need reigning in a touch, something that doesn't involves ditching either Ricardo or Chilwell for, but merely effort and practice on the training ground. Having seen plenty of Ricardo for both Nice and Porto, he's just carried on like he always has. Generally I think if one goes, the other should sit, so the centre backs aren't left exposed. Away from home, they should also be a bit more wary in general, though with both Ndidi and Mendy on the pitch, at least one should be able to go. These don't involves sacking the coach, don't involve dropping Chilwell and Ricardo, but a bit of caution and training ground work. That being said, I do fear Puel's persistence with Morgan may well cost him his job eventually. Not an attack on Wes, but as I mentioned, it's foolish to play those two with their lack of pace so high up the pitch.
  15. I was joking mate . I just thought pro-Puel posts were prohibited.
