Claude Puel, tcf verdict and view
DATE: 15.05.2018 - THE CUNNING FOX - BLOG
After being present both against
Southampton and West Ham and also watching the games v. Arsenal and
Tottenham, you are a bit lost and with a lot of questions
Claude Puel took City to safety and leaded the
club to their next best position in the Premier League ever. So
reading facts is not a problem and if you are judging from that you
will of course see Puel as a certain choice for the future.
The problem is to understand his selection strategy and how he makes
his moves during a game, against Tottenham he decides to play Hamza
Choudhury on right back, a position he is not used to, with Yohan
Benalouane available and previuosly used in this position.
The decission to drop Ben Hamer and let Eldin Jakupovic play. He
also decides to change after winning against Arsenal and drop a
young player like Hamza Choudhury from the starting line-up after a
good performance against Arsenal.
To juggle your team around as Puel has done, makes fans worried.
Puel must understand that messing with fans and getting a toxic
atmosphere at home is deadly for a club and if you ignore that you
are in trouble of staying in your job.
Injuries and suspensions can be blamed, but instead of keeping a
steady line, he has mixed everything and it looks a bit messy.
Gladly Jamie Vardy has managed to stay focused and scored a great
amount of goals and been in good form.
Vardy is one of few players who has been playing in his preferred
position. Puel has expiremented a lot and showed few signs of a
pattern and a plan. That worries tcf and makes me uncertain about
Claude Puel and his vision and way forward.
If you look at a club like Burnley, with Sean Dyche in charge, they
are probably also thinking about the future, but that is not done by
juggling players around, it's done in a totally different way and
that is one way tcf understands, and it has made The Clarets a good
Fans loves to see football played in an entertaining way, but not in
a way that makes you loose and perform far from your best as City
did at home to West Ham and Southampton, really disturbing to watch.
Very uncertain about Claude Puel and his master plan as he juggles
too much with systems and team selections, not really giving any
idea of what will come. If this man will be in charge of the club
next season, it's a massive gamble, but so it would be to change.
Difficult decission to make for the owners, but if Brendan Rodgers,
Rafael Benitez, Arsene Wenger or Manuel Pellegrini is available,
would like to see a change made.
