    Claude Puel told job "Safe" - report

    Exception rather than the rule if we're totally honest though.

    I've had a few like this where there's a fair case for it and then something happens to blow the whole thing up immediately but I do think it's hard to pick a very obvious candidate. Puel, Sarri, Ranieri and Silva my only worries. If you were an ardent Puel-outer you could back the other three and then if Puel went first you've got a result anyway

    Pearson sacking that was rescinded

    So conclude, absolutely no-one has a clue.

    Huddersfield (A)

    Yeah I like Huddersfield away too. Another decent away dropping sadly. Luckily we should be getting some decent ones come up. Be my last away this season this one.

    That is good to be fair. Tempted by that. Does it still stand though given West Brom have since played? I've just backed no PL manager to leave at 20/1 (PaddyPower, Betfair also have this but limit you to a £5 stake, I had £20 on PP) Huddersfield - new bloke, won't go now Cardiff - Be amazed if they sack Warnock Burnley - Won't sack Dyche unless it's a disaster Newcastle - Won't sack Benitez unless it's a disaster Palace - Possible they sack Hodgson if they get pulled right into trouble, but unlikely, and they would be struggling for alternatives (Moyes possibly) Fulham - Not impossible that Ranieri goes but I'd still say it's unlikely. I think they, along with Leicester probably worry me the most though Southampton - No chance Hasenhuttl goes before the end of the season Brighton - Hughton won't be sacked bar a disaster Bournemouth - Howe won't be sacked bar a disaster Everton - Silva I think may come under pressure if they fall any further but I get the feeling they might just avoid going up that route this time West Ham - Pellegrini doing fairly well, highly unlikely to get the chop Wolves - Not a prayer Watford - 7th in the table so highly unlikely even if they do love a sacking, think given how high they are, if Gracia went it would end up being the summer This leaves the top six. I think only Sarri of them is under any threat of losing his job. And of course, the obvious one, the main reason that these odds are so high, Leicester. I think despite a lot of discontent, Puel will probably survive the season barring a disaster. Nursey thinks he's safe and Nursey's quite reliable isn't he? I think we've probably got to suck it up to be honest and wait for the summer. It's going to be a long few months unless he improves things. I concede if we lose our next four, which is very possible, then he will probably go. I think other than Puel there's no obvious candidate for the chop.

    Claude Puel told job "Safe" - report

    I'd suspect he'll be gone in the summer. While we're not in danger it's not going to be a priority. Think we're just going to have to suck it up and hope for some entertainment. Not holding my breath like.
  7. Why would he though? Not saying that in you're wrong (because you aren't at all) but what's it to him? Makes you wonder if this is the players telling him. In-fact it makes total sense that it is.

    What’s happened to ‘our Arry’

    Have thought this for a while. He isn't poor, and he comes across as a very likeable character, but if we seriously turned down £75million in the summer then we're mugs to be honest.

    Gray ??

    His goal yesterday was quality to be fair. It was a better game from him, though can't totally overlook his part in their first either.

    Vardy

    Quite honestly I feel like we're wasting the best striker outside the top six. Not playing to his strengths and restricting him.

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

    Out for me and it has been a little while. There have been a few games this season where my faith in him has taken a significant hit, namely Bournemouth away, West Ham at home, Southampton at home in the cup and to be honest, I think Fulham away and the run that ensued largely did it. Even after the Chelsea & Man City wins I thought the real acid test was Cardiff and we produced everything I feared we would. The sad truth is the repetition of dropped points at home is more likely than picking up points from the top six. It isn't sustainable. I think in a lot of ways it's hit the point where there's just no point in continuing with it. It's sad that he's never managed to build a rapport with our fans but the fact the exact same happened at Southampton makes me think there's more to it than just our fans being whiney arseholes (although I appreciate, a lot are). More and more words appearing between the lines from well connected journalists that the players and him don't get on. Geoff Peters and John Percy are both clearly going to know things. I just don't think it's going anywhere. There are big cracks in this entire set up and I feel like every win we pick up is just papering over that. We hardly ever put a run of wins together and we don't seem to have actually solved many, if any of our issues that were here with him last year. The league position I think people read a bit too much into. First of all, we haven't finished in the top half this season yet so we can't really hold that argument up with much strength. I also think if you click the spoiler below, you get a far more accurate reflection of how the table actually is. In reality, we're in a cluster of teams with little between them, it's possible we come out on top of that pile - but can you say with any honesty that it looks likely that we do? If this league position, flimsy as it is is at the cost of ever enjoying home games, then I'm out. This is a tough job, it's tougher than it really ought to be, but it is what it is and I can honestly say if Puel was here five years, I would not expect us to better his finish last season. That's how I feel from watching all bar one game of his reign here. Puel out.

    Wolves A Post Match Thread 4 - 3

    That's the 9th game in 11 we've gone 1-0 down. That is the fundamental problem with Puel. We're playing catch-up football all of the time. You will never sustain a jot of success with such an appalling habit. It's too little too late, too many times.
  13. Got to agree with the OP. Don't think Puel is the answer but we seriously need to phase some of these players out.
  14. Dan LCFC

    Everyone back for corners

    We've done it under Puel from the off, without being any better at defending them and now having absolutely zero threat on the break from them. It's the most brainless widely used tactic I can think of.

    Eduardo Macia to Bordeaux

    I can't see any way now that this isn't the case. Macia is a facade.
