  1. If a source with a good track record said it I'd be more inclined to not dismiss it out of hand, but what we're seeing doesn't suggest Puel has lost the dressing room.
  2. Eh with us reliable journalists and papers have been Percy and occasionally the mirror, not the sun. No reason to trust them, particularly when what they're claiming doesn't tally with reality. At most they've potentially talked to one unhappy, fringe player and ignored the actions of the core players who seem happy to work with Puel.

    Spain v England Nations Cup

    Someone want to explain surgery to Terry Butcher? Pretty sure it's not meant to be deadly.
  4. Even more so when you think that one of the managers we've had that really played up to the media in recent years is Ian Holloway, and we all remember the disaster that was his reign
  5. That reliable source the sun... If the telegraph and John Percy start saying it then maybe there's something in it, but at the moment we've got gossip in some rag vs players signing because of Puel (Ricardo) and key players happily signing extensions.

    When you ignore it in favour of framing anything in a way that justifies disliking the manager, yep.

    What else was plain to see was that we dominated the first half and the total of any threat they offered was a couple of minutes around the goal, which was their only meaningful attempt (i.e. one that even worked the keeper). Your assessment of the performance is based off the result and your inability to give Puel any credit, not the performance itself.

    Everton showed nothing of the sort. What the Everton game showed was playing with 10 men is difficult. Don't forget we were easily the better side prior to the sending off, with Vardy missing two reasonable chances and one gilt edge one.

    What is it that we're missing?

    Experience and consistency. We're capable of turning it on and looking genuinely impressive, and potentially Bournemouth aside (was at a wedding so missed that game) we have done for spells of each game. But, those spells tend to be 20, 30 minutes rather than the full 90 - which comes as players age and get the naivity out of their system. Look at the last match - Vardy and Morgan are the only outfield players there over 30, with the vast majority still under 25, couple of years from when you'd expect them to be at their prime. Patience from the fans, who seem to have delusions of grandeur after the title win, we're moving steadily but surely forward to being a top half fixture; well above our historical stature as a yo-yo club.

    Let's have a films thread.

    Johnny English is pretty bloody funny.

    Maddison named in England squad

    Given he's out until end of the month at the earliest with that injury he got at Wolves, no.

    We need to talk about Wilfred Ndidi

    Yes and no. He's completed the most passes because he's tried the most passes, his pass success rate is distinctly average (10th of 17 outfield players to have had any game time this season): https://www.whoscored.com/Teams/14/Show/England-Leicester

  14. Poor couple of years for Mahrez fair, no-one covered themselves in glory in the last 3/4 months of Ranieris reign, but are we forgetting how end of that season under Shakespeare he was opening teams up? Or how in Puels first 10/15 games Riyad was shredding defences with Gray and looked phenomenal again? He struggled for consistency compared to 15/16 but the entire team did.
