    Hope Pereira responds well to being dropped by putting in a solid performance especially defensively
  3. Next season our CB options will be: Maguire, Benkovic, Soyuncu and Evans. Unless we sell one of them, there is little chance Knight, Johnson or Hughes will progress to the first team. Real shame. But I still have hope one of them will make it (probably a fools hope). Kind of sad we signed Benkovic and Soyuncu when we could have given one of these lads a chance.

    The OH Leuven Thread

    I think that’s the media narrative. Kante won us the league. Truth be told what won us the league was years of building the foundations, team spirit, a great man manager, a certain style of play and everyone performing at their maximum every week. Yes we had 3 world class players (Mahrez, Kante, Vardy) which every title winning side needs.. But to put it down to one player devalues the achievements of our other legends.

    Mendy

    Imo he is our best CM because of his all round ability

    Albrighton

    If Albrighton is just a hard worker why does he have 3 assists and 1 goal in all competitions to his name compared to Gray who only has 1 goal. Also Albrighton has only played 276mins and Gray has played 481mins. So Albrighton is having a direct impact on goals scored every 69mins.

    Adrien Silva

    I’d like to see Silva / Mendy start together personally, especially against parked buses. Only issue is that Wilf adds height to our team which is important for defending set pieces.
  8. I think @Ric Flair was being sarcastic mate. It’s what Tottenham fans used to say about us ‘they haven’t played anyone good yet!’
  9. I think the only reason he’s stayed is so Puel can take a closer look at him to see if he’s capable of replacing Fuchs next season. Judging by his his performances in pre season and also the need for a Fuchs replacement, i’d say Elder is actually closer to our first team than the likes of Choudhury, Knight & Hughes.

    Time for a Puel in thread.

    What pace, directness and width do our traditional wingers have? Gray did well against Huddersfield but we know he’s too inconsistent to perform like that again until maybe next month. Ghezzal needs time to adjust but right now he’s a bit of a one trick pony and certainly doesn’t offer any ‘pace’ or ‘directness’. The only decent traditional winger we have is Albrighton. Our best wingers are Pereira and Chilwell. I really hope Pereira sorts out the defensive side of his game because having a reliable attacking RB is key to Puel’s 4-2-3-1. I quite liked the system on Saturday. Vardy had a strike partner and Maddison had the freedom to roam and dictate the play. We need another creative flair player to help Maddison and then the front four is sorted imo.
  11. When the line up was announced, I thought Puel had lost the plot. But he deserves credit and the narrow 4-2-3-1 we saw against Huddersfield should be the way forward. We lined up as a 4-2-3-1, but Ghezzal and Maddison did not play like wingers. They often drifted in very narrow and were switching sides and both of them popped up on the left together to create overloads with Chilwell. When Gray came on we tweaked it slightly, Maddison still had the licence to roam, but Gray mainly stuck to the right to create width and Iheanacho dropped a bit deeper to offer a link. Ideally for the narrow 4-2-3-1 to work, we’d get the width from our RB and have another Number 10 like Maddison on the right of the 3 behind Vardy and 2 wingers on the bench if we need to make adjustments.
  12. Watching Sky is like watching the 10 o clock news. There is no personality or entertainment.

    Benkovic January Recall?

    Starting against Kilmarnock in an hour. It’s on Sky I think

    Gray ??

    He’s better at RW. On the left he’s too predictable especially against deep defences. When he’s playing RW he can just run to the bar line like Schlupp and cause some havoc. Also he had a few decent shots inside the box on the right which looked more dangerous than his usual curlers from the left which go wide.
  15. When will Claudio return to the KP?? Even if it’s just walking out onto the pitch at half time, so the fans can sing his name. It’s about time he came home.
