Puel out

    Is there anyone out there who has a bit of optimism? We are the eighth best team in England. We have great owners who have shown commitment. We have a manager trying to change a playing system that, whilst it had been successful, had been 'found out'. We have some of the best players that I have seen in nearly 50 years of supporting the team and still it's not enough.

    Puel is most unlikely to get the push in the summer and, he deserves at least one full season to build his team. I like his ideas of playing the same system at under 23 and 1st team levels; it's something that we have needed, but not had, for many seasons. I can see more players coming through the ranks and, who knows what his transfer record will be?

    I genuinely do not think that it would be any advantage to change manager again. Let's be positive and see what next season brings...

    I would be positive and totally on board with all of that if our football wasn't mind numbingly shit. I've enjoyed seasons when we've been less than great. thought the year we had in the Prem with MA was actually enjoyable despite us being relegated. This is just absolute turd to watch and a win feels marginally different to a draw or defeat.

    Not certain that I am the best person to advocate optimism or positivity. However, I can understand what Puel claims to be trying to achieve. But I don't believe that we are currently the 8th best team in the league - even if that meant anything - currently we can't beat down and out strugglers. We play more like equal 20th!

    I think a team like Leicester has to optimise the performances of its best players to get the best possible results and Puel is apparently driving our best(possibly only) striker away. He my or may not have the right level of technical knowledge but he has a boring personality which is turning off fans and ( I believe) players.

    The theory may be interesting but the practice is awful and the outcome I think will be relegation next season.

    Sorry about that.

    I am with you. I am upbeat and optimistic. No gain without pain etc.

    We have to change our style to compete with the top six. If that means a change in personnel, so be it.

    If it isn't working by the end of October, the manager will be changed also.

    The last time at top level that we had a sustained period of shit until the end of the season and kept the same clown to start the next season was Taylor.

    If we're both stupid enough to keep him and stupid enough to let him transform the squad, he may well go down in history as being as destructive and useless as him too.

    Did Taylor sign Junior Lewis? Is this a serious question?

    I can't be positive about the football at all.

    It's absolute turd and saying let's be positive on here is all well and good but on a Saturday it's hard to even justify turning up at home.

    If our only thought is staying up next year then what's the point?

    We've built **** all over the last 3 years.
