    Slight knee injury he's said.

    Helicopter crash

    This can't be real. They all must have got out safe, my brain keeps telling me. But we all know that isn't possible. Thoughts with the families of all affected. Thanks to those well-wishers of other clubs - you don't have to what you do, but I'm so grateful you are. I really, really hope at least someone survived.

    Leicester v West Ham- Pre Match Thread

    I agree, but it needs to come together for a whole game before I will say that it's not a concern or something we need to work on. 45 minutes is great, but a game is 90 minutes. We need to be consistent. Conceding right before half time is always a suckerpunch though, you're right.

    Leicester v West Ham- Pre Match Thread

    Stick with the 3-4-1-2 and don't bottle it. Play to our strengths like in the first half at the Emirates. It's got to come together soon.

    Arsenal Post Match

    In terms of Puel, I don't think he did anything wrong - for the first half the tactics worked, but then Arsenal just seemed to figure us out, and we dropped off a cliff. Then you look to the bench, and there's not a single player on there that I would expect to make a difference. Okazaki and Albrighton have such good engines, but they're not game changers.

    Arsenal Post Match

    Weird, weird game. 1st half we were excellent. Their equaliser was just too good. But second half we completely fell apart. Why? Yes they were excellent, but our attitude was just...off. Couldn't string a pass together, or win a single second ball. We looked like a completely different team. I'm also starting to worry about Vardy. He's not playing the same, and that breaks my heart to say.

    Disgraceful reaction. So poor. Dammit, we were playing so well.

    If ever the stats of a game didn't tell the true story...jesus. We've been all over them. Worried Maddison looked a bit tired towards the end of that half though. I'd be more pissed off with their equaliser if it hadn't been such good movement from Ozil. Git.

    Anyone seen any highlights of the game? Would be great to see how he got on.

    What is it that we're missing?

    Fair comment, and perhaps you're right. I'd be curious to see a heat map of each player's average positioning for the last 3 games to verify this. @StriderHiryu whatever happened to your tactics thread? Found it fascinating but bet it takes quite a bit to put together so frequently.

    This is my hope for the long term: that the owners investing in the new training ground is evidence that they see it this way.

    Do you feel none of that is currently here then? I do think Clyne could well be an answer the first, but are you not convinced that Evans, Benkovic or Soyuncu could solve the centre half problem? As for the winger/wide/behind-the-striker player and central midfielder... I'd like to think that Maddison is the former, but my hopes that Silva would take up that forward passer role don't seem realistic anymore.

    What is it that we're missing?

    I agree on all of these points. I think people underestimate how little experience we actually have as a squad - and as a unit that means we need time. This is pretty much what I think - that there are lots of little elements not quite clicking at the moment, but with time and patience we will start to show our worth.
  14. Perhaps this has been done to death across threads, but I think it's a question worth asking nonetheless: What are we missing to get us to finally 'click'? Forget Puel for a minute, or really even the formation - I'm talking about the team and squad. Is it a natural right back like Clyne (since we've been linked)? A 'fix' to our midfield (if so, how)? Do we need to start phasing in a Vardy replacement (I don't even want to contemplate this)? We know how Puel wants us to play, there is zero chance we will change to a back three, so I'd like to hear people's thoughts on how we can sort the problems with the squad, team and players.
  15. Yup, but that's not the point I'm making.
