I didnt say anyone said we should play a weakened team against Soton.No one is saying we should field a weakened team against Southampton. No one is saying we should expect to just turn up and win. But based on the players we have, we should be beating them.
Football obviously doesn't work like that, and there will always be shock results. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't expect to beat the teams we're better than.
We should be confident, but not complacent.
I was saying that Puel was criticised for picking a weakened team with the expectation that we should really be beating the likes of them with that 11.
Now, less than 2 weeks on, the same people are saying that that is the exact attitude we should go into for every game.
I've said it before but his critics are as consistent as Puel's team selections.
