    Time for Puel to go

    Eh? The key to survival is having more points than the team in 18th. Currently we have 12 more, effectively 13 with goal difference. We could be in for a disappointing season; 12th-15th maybe, but going down would require it going drastically wrong.

    But that's a valid point, potentially. If we are going to change, we need to continue with the philosophy the club clearly now wants to implement. That does not mean bringing in an Allardyce or Moyes.

    It's a tough one. I do like the emphasis on bringing through youngsters and looking to transition our style but it's hard to argue we are looking less and less dangerous every week. I'd be inclined to give one more transfer window. A central midfielder and a quality Wideman would make a big difference. Not sure if he sees that though.

    One of the most annoying things in football. Guaita been timewasting all half. Ref only produces card in 90th minute.

    Ghezzal been decent. Fair play.

    Ndidi genuinely looks like a competition winner

    Maddison hasn't been in it, but to take our only other consistent goal threat other than Vardy seems absurd. Edit: unless injured ofc

    It was a definite foul.

    We are hamstrung by Ndidi and Mendy. We don't even necessarily need a deeper lying ball player, just somebody who can allow us to get the ball quicker into our attacking players before the opponent's set themselves. Gray, Maddison and Albrighton have been anonymous, but I don't necessarily blame them as they never get the ball in dangerous areas as we are so laboured. A bit like Ranieri second season where Mahrez got nullified as he was doubled up, and we were so slow in working the ball to him.

    Mendy should have been busting a gut to stop that. Pathetic effort in closing down.

    Ndidis regression is worrying.

    Yep, in desperate need of a link between defence and attack.

    The NBA Thread

    Been an interesting season so far. Toronto the outstanding team clearly, they are genuine contenders for the title with Kawhi. Although GSW can clearly go through the gears on a whim. Surprising how well Sacramento,Dallas and Memphis (although return of Conley was always going to impact positively) are doing. Doncic the outstanding rookie so far as expected. Houston the biggest disappointment.

    My comment about National League was tongue in cheek! The poster earlier in the thread misrepresented my comment about the Mexican player to suit his own point about fans pretending to know about players. I never said i watched "loads" of Mexican football, only that i'd seen Diego Lainez play a few times. As for the final sentence, can't argue with that.
