The Guardian reported after the Newcastle game that it was unrest
among Leicester City players. We all know that this newspaper never runs
around with gossip, so surely there must be something
The fact is that Claude Puel is not one playing the same team week in
and week out, but makes his selections a bit unpredictable and sometimes
not really easy to understand. This can of course upset a player who has
done well but not really honoured correctly for his performances.
Puel can do what he likes and as long as the team wins or get away with

favour of Gray. Cannot really understand that the England U.21 captain
is not a player to trust in that type of game at home, so that is a bit
of surprise. To see Fuchs also not really being involved is sad, he is a
But as The Guardian reports, no one believe that Puel is under any
pressure at board room level, so we just have to hope that the training
and results will be improved.
