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

    As I said in here It's hard to play counter attacking football when the opposition have set up to do the same that's why it's only happening against the better teams. I think the fact that against Southampton we included 6 players aged 22 or under - technically if we'd had one more player in that age group, the squad would have been eligible to play in PL2 should be taken into consideration when considering progress.
  3. Well they've had it pretty easy up to now mostly lower to bottom half teams and Spurs. I saw a bit of Pogba interview where he was suggesting how they're happier now, what I'd like to know is why aren't the media all over them calling them snakes etc because they weren't performing for Mourinho like they did when we improved after we sacked Ranieri? I'd guess it's because they loved Ranieri, a media darling but hated Mourinho

  5. http://www.fsf.org.uk/latest-news/view/labour-call-for-fans-fare-to-protect-travelling-supporters Shadow sports minister Dr Rosena Allin-Khan is calling on the Government to deliver a flexible rail fare for football fans facing late fixture changes. The MP has launched a petition calling for the introduction of a “Fans ‘ Fare” that would allow supporters to book train tickets in advance and protect them from late fixture changes due to TV. Now a petition has been launched by Labour to get the public behind the idea – an idea that supporters have been lobbying the authorities on for a number of years, led by the FSF. “Every week, away fans are stung when fixtures are rescheduled for TV rights, forcing them to miss out on the cheapest train tickets,” Dr Allin-Khan said this week. “It is deeply unfair that fans miss out on the cheapest tickets, cannot change the date or in some cases, cannot travel at all.” Labour adopted a commitment to flexible ticketing for football supporters as part of its 2017 general election manifesto following discussions with the FSF. Football fan representatives have been lobbying competition bodies, rail companies and government authorities for a flexible rail fare for a number of years via the Rail Delivery Group (the British rail industry membership body that brings together passenger and freight rail companies and Network Rail). FSF caseworker Amanda Jacks said: “This is something we’ve been pushing on for years via talks with individual train operating companies and the Rail Delivery Group. “I sincerely hope the shadow sports minister is successful in making this happen. Fans contribute millions to the rail economy. It’s time to give something back.” With broadcasters having an huge impact on the fixture schedule, with more than half of all Premier League games being moved, the issue of public transport and particularly train travel, is likely to become an increasingly thorny. “Fans must not be at the mercy of billion pound broadcasting deals,” Dr Allin-Khan said. “Without supporters, football simply would not be the same. Fans' voices must be heard. We demand a Fans' Fare.” Back the idea? Sign the Fans’ Fare petition…
  6. Posted by The FSF 17th January 2019 Coventry City crisis "cannot become the norm" says Minister Coventry City’s existence is in doubt once again as they face homelessness next season and now the Government says football authorities must do more to prevent such crises. The Sky Blues’ unpopular owners, SISU, have failed to secure an agreement to play at the Ricoh Arena for the second season in a row and remain locked in a legal dispute with the stadium owners – putting the club’s EFL status at risk. SISU has launched legal action against the Ricoh Arena’s owner, Wasps Rugby Club, with Wasps refusing to provide a new tenancy agreement while litigation is ongoing. SISU are now being urged to drop the case by multiple stakeholders. The House of Commons discussed the ongoing crisis in Parliament this week after Coventry South MP Jim Cunningham secured Parliamentary time to look into the issue. “Too many football clubs have faced similar problems,” Cunningham told the House. “But the common factor is poor stewardship by owners. “Football club owners own something far more important than just a business. They owe it to the local community to run the club carefully and responsibly.” The Sports Minister Mims Davies said her department would speak to all parties involved in the dispute in an attempt to bring them together and find a resolution – but stopped short of promising direct Government intervention. “It is my belief that the Government should not involve themselves directly in the fortunes of any individual club, but more and more we are being dragged into these types of disputes,” Davies told MPs. “This cannot become the norm. It suggests that perhaps football is not able to govern itself—something we need to be ready to tackle.” This is now the fourth Government debate held in recent years regarding the future of the Sky Blues and the club’s current agreement with Wasps for the Ricoh Arena ends in May. In 2013, Coventry City had to ground share with Northampton Town, some 34 miles away, after failing to secure the Ricoh Arena and is now even considering ground-sharing with Nuneaton Town, who play in the National League North. The Sports Minister said her department would be speaking to the FA and the EFL to look again at ownership regulations and challenges they face in that area. “The Government are prepared to champion the game,” Davies said. “But the authorities that govern it must ensure that we all get the outcomes that fans, above all, want and expect.” Coventry North MP Colleen Fletcher said the club’s failure to secure a home for next season would be “disastrous” for the Midlands city. “Here we are again, a year on, and the club is once more on the countdown to homelessness,” she said. “That has left many fans again fearful that the club may leave Coventry or, worse still, cease to exist. “Both scenarios would be disastrous for our city and for the club’s loyal supporters; neither must be allowed to happen under any circumstances.” Fletcher, like many supporters of Coventry City, has seriously questioned SISU’s suitability, capability and fitness to own and run a football club. FSF affiliates the Sky Blue Trust said they welcomed the Parliamentary debate which brought national attention to the club’s issues once again. In a statement issued on Wednesday, the Trust said: “What is important now is how the various parties who have the ability to prevent the homelessness of Coventry City will act. “We will continue to monitor the situation closely and seek urgent answers as well as positive actions from all of the parties concerned.”

    Let's hope they have the same impact that Huth and Albrighton had on Leicester's Great Escape season.

    SHOCK SCENES! HARRY REDKNAPP’S ODDS SLASHED FROM 200/1 TO 11/2 TO REPLACE CLAUDE PUEL AT LEICESTER CITY JACK KITSON - 08:49, 18 Jan 2019 Claude Puel may still be in the Leicester City job, but that hasn’t stopped frenzied speculation linking a number of gaffers with the former Premier League champions. Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has been hotly tipped to take over should a vacancy arise in the East Midlands, with the ex-Liverpool boss currently as short as 4/9 in the next Leicester City manager market (Paddy Power). Another manager in employment, Burnley’s Sean Dyche, has been propelled into the mix at 4/1, while the newest addition to the Job Centre, David Wagner, is in the frame at 5/1 to make a swift return to the dugout following his departure from rock-bottom Huddersfield earlier this week. However, the market has been rocked by the sudden presence of a certain Harry Redknapp who has abruptly burst into the top echelons of the betting. Redknapp, aka The King of the Jungle, has been SLASHED from a gargantuan 200/1 outsider to an 11/2 major contender. The veteran gaffer began his managerial career way back in the early 1980s with Bournemouth, before going on to take charge of West Ham, Portsmouth (twice), with a spell at their south coast rivals Southampton sandwiched in between. He enjoyed most success during his four-year spell at Tottenham, while he’s since overseen QPR, Jordan, and most recently Birmingham with whom he saved from Championship relegation at the end of the 2016/17 season, only to lose his job in the early stages of the following campaign - this remains his last job in management. More recently, Redknapp caught the attention of the wider English public a couple of months ago when he was crowned the winner of the 2018 edition of I’m a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! It’s worth remembering that Puel remains the Foxes boss, for now at least, but should his side slump to a defeat at Wolves this weekend his position would come under further scrutiny, and - who knows? - Redknapp could soon be cropping up at the King Power Stadium in the near future in what would be one of the more surprising managerial appointments of the decade. https://www.thesportsman.com/articles/shock-scenes-harry-redknapp-s-odds-slashed-from-200-1-to-11-2-to-replace-claude-puel-at-leicester-city

    Stanislav Lobotka

    To save the clickbait Bournemouth and Leicester City are both ready to bid for Celta Vigo midfielder Stanislav Lobotka, according to claims on Thursday. Italian outlet Calcio Mercato reports that both Premier League sides are keen on the player and should be making an offer of €25m for him. The website claims that Celta’s director Felipe Miñambres keeps ‘frequent contacts’ with English clubs. Bournemouth and Leicester City, however, could find some competition from Chelsea for the player. The Blues are looking for a replacement for Cesc Fabregas and have the 24-year-old as one of the names on their list. Anther club interested in signing Lobotka are Napoli, but the Italian side would only get him on a loan with an option to buy. As Celta’s intention is a permanent sale or a loan with an obligatory buying clause, they don’t stand much of a chance. It’s claimed that Lobotka is currently protected by a €50m release clause.

    Kristoffer Zachariassen

    HITC Sport understands a number of Premier League sides are tracking Norwegian midfielder Kristoffer Zachariassen. Sander Berge of Genk and Kristoffer Zachariassen of Sarpsborg fight for the ball during the UEFA Europa League Group I match between KRC Genk and Sarpsborg 08 at Cristal Arena on December... Kristoffer Zachariassen (R) in action against Genk for Sarpsborg in the Europa League Leicester City are among several Premier League clubs keeping tabs on highly-rated Sarpsborg midfielder Kristoffer Zachariassen, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club. Zachariassen has emerged on the radar of a number of clubs across Europe after catching the eye for Sarpsborg in the Europa League this season. The powerful central midfielder helped Sarpsborg qualify for the Europa League group stages, scoring three goals in the competition this season, and his all-round performances have brought him to the attention of clubs in bigger European leagues. Leicester have been keeping tabs on Zachariassen's progress for some time, as they see his all-action style as being ideal for the Premier League.
