    Praps the tables should be an aggregation of the various Opta stats.

    I forget which pundit I was listening to at the weekend (it might have been Lee Dixon) but he was dismissive of possession stats. He remarked that what mattered was what a team did with the ball, not how long they had it. Whilst it was a simplistic argument that suited his agenda, one does have some sympathy with the general view.

    Well we certainly didn’t win the league dominating possession stats.

    Suddenly people are starting to feel a little more positive about his appointment. Reading about his past does make me feel like this could be a really shrewd move. Whilst I don't expect us to finish in the top 6 I do feel as though we could sneak into the top 8.
    Oh and for some reason, I would love to see Ben Arfa here in January. Imagine Vardy, Mahrez, Gray and Ben Arfa running at teams. It would be beautiful.



    Now watch us slide to the bottom and certain relegation.

    Is it too soon to say that he's the most boring man I've ever heard interviewed?

    I've tried to make allowances but his answer to any question is long, rambling and tedious. I'd much rather he answer in French and have it translated to be honest because he surely cannot be this dreary.

    Gawd knows what the players make of him.

    It also highlights the lack of a 'voice' at the club even more to me. You never hear a peep from the owners, Chief Exec, Head of Recruitment or Director of Football. It's almost like they deliberately don't want to communicate with us.

    Silly me, I thought I was supporting a football club, not the Oxford University debating society.

    Not a question we can answer really.

    Just listened to another press conference and learnt nothing whatsoever. The same words as the last one, slightly rearranged. He could be describing last nights dinner for all I know.

    Is it the journalists fault for not asking him sensible questions or should they just do the interview via an interpreter?

    That there Holloway was a right laugh, though.

    I don't give a toss about the press conferences.

    I don't think I've actually listened to one for decades without having being prompted to do so like when Claudio was here...if someone says our manager is saying dilly ding dilly ding etc and we're pissing the league I may watch it back. Otherwise they all seem to be cliches about there not being easy games etc.

    Schoolboy humour I know, but I did smile when asked about Friday nights Mahrez substitution, when he said Riayad was disappointed he didn't touch more balls

    May I deduce that you are not 100% convinced that he did well for Leicester City?

    Didn't hear this charge levelled at Claudio so often and he spoke a lot of gobbeldygook (sometimes literally)

    He gave us some great away days for the following season

    Ranieri didn't need a wide vocabulary in order to communicate. He had a gift for communication and could easily get his thoughts and emotions across. He also knew how to use his limited vocabulary to his advantage with the media.

    Puel doesn't have those gifts. As a new manager of the club entrusted with our survival and development, I happen to be interested in him, his methods and his thoughts. I appear to be in a minority of one.

    I'm interested in his thoughts which is why I don't watch press conferences. I don't think it's intended to be a communicative device.
