LCFC’s inconsistent performances create huge rift between fans on Puel debate

By Harry Shellard

LCFC boss Claude Puel’s possession-based style of play has been under fire from disgruntled city fans after a number of poor performances.

Leicester City fans have become angry at the team’s recent poor performances and Puel is the man to take most of the criticism.

Since the team’s style of play changed from counter-attacking to possession-based, many fans have been unhappy with the level of performance the team has displayed.

With City’s star striker Jamie Vardy’s lack of involvement and goal drought, many are blaming Puel’s style of play for his lack of form.

Although the club sit 8th in the Premier League table, many supporters see this as not good enough. With defeats in the Carabao Cup to Manchester City’s weakened team, and a shock FA Cup defeat to Newport County, it seems the team has nothing to fight for, for the remainder of the season.

Puel’s fielding of weaker teams in the cup competitions has led to further scrutiny by fans and pundits alike.

Some fans have begun the #Puelout campaign to get the manager sacked, even creating GoFundMe online pages to create banners and fly planes over the stadium to show their disgruntlement.

However, many other Leicester City fans believe Puel is doing a decent job.

His team sheets are often full of young and promising players, which is something other managers have failed to implement into their team.

Players such as James Maddison, Harvey Barnes and Ben Chilwell all have a bright and promising future for their club and country.

With their huge increase in game time under Puel, some fans have urged for patience with his young team as they have great prospects amongst the squad.

It’s coming to the end of the January transfer window and a lot of Leicester fans would love a marquee signing or two just to add some end product to the array of talent they already have.

Puel is safe in his job for now, as he’ll continue to push for 7th place and continue to give youth a chance.
