    And just say we did get relegated would that be nothing to do with puel?

    Indeed. Even when we had a good defence we looked dire. This defence problem is a new one.

    I'm normally just 'disappointed' after a defeat, but today I feel annoyed and really quite cross because of the way we just caved in. In fact, we just stopped trying, it seems.

    Six out of seven losses is not very pleasing

    Would be referee bias
    Bad luck
    Injuries
    And Jamie Vardy

    We will bounce back and win the championship EASY

    Not at all. The difference is we have been playing poor since November. You base your predictions off of hope, we all want to win. But if you lose 50% of your games logic says chances are you are not that good. When you get beat by Palace, Burnley, Hull, Swansea etc I think saying "we will beat xyz easily" is delusion. You and Always have been wrong for a very very longtime. But it isnt about what is right or wrong it is about judging what you see. 7 defeats in our last 8, 3 points from the last 24 etc tells me we are not as good as you say we are. I don't mean to be critical of you as you want the club to win just as I do. But we are a very poor team with a poor manager so is it surprising we are in freefall?

    six defeats in seven premier league games would surely get most owners/chairmen twitchy??? and the amount of goals we have conceded under puel!

    Will you stop talking rubbish he team plays in the managers image, he picks the team , sets them up and trains them ! Reed maybe at fault for not signing a Cb but he doesn't make us play the awful football we are .

    3 points out of 21 is our record over the last 7 games. It's a complete joke and still people defend Puel. He's paid a massive salary and the buck stops with him.

    Our worst league form for 8 years?

    It's what happens when average teams get to Cup Finals. Haven't looked it up but it seems that it's a pretty regular occurence.

    Never agreed with those wanting Puel out but it's clear now he has to go

    Do they pick the team, take training and decide the tactics as well then - didn't know that.

    That's 6 of the last 7 league games lost. Keep that up and we'll endup with 33 points.

    Personally, I think he's been hindered. Firstly, by the Europa League, which historically has always had an effect on teams. Secondly, by the board's failure to a) not sign an additional striker in the summer and b) not sign a defender in January

    Nevertheless, with this squad, and particularly with the attacking options we've got, we shouldn't be relegated, and I don't think we will. We're only 4 points away from 9th - plenty of time to turn this around.

    We do need to win at Sunderland though. The team is lacking in confidence obviously and we need to get a good result going into the cup final.

    First time I've left a match early, the football has been dire for the last few months with endless sideways passing and lack of movement off the ball

    That's W.Ham's first win at St. Marys. We lost to an average team, again. I'd suggest that Les relieve Puel of his duties but he'd probably just replace him with Black.

    I think Forster has to take responsibility for a lot of goals going in this season....Today is the day I officially start to worry about our Prem safety.

    What's it got to do with Ralph and Kat? One is just a figurehead and we know very well that the other doesn't want to put any more money into the club.

    Have you looked at our recent form? It simply cannot be nothing to do with Puel. To say otherwise is just ridiculous. Change the record.

    Why ignore the two Liverpool wins? They don't fit into your theory? Why are you deliberately ignoring them?

    As I said, it's quite pathetic from your point of view (and others) that you are so happy.

    I agree! But Puel is the one who coaches and sets up the team. We look clueless and I afraid that our form s down to him. 6 defeats in 7 is not good enough cup final or not, he has got to go before we are dragged into the relegation dogfight (I've said it for months that we are already in it).

    I don't think there is too much wrong with the tactics or the players picked.

    If you go back and look through the pre-match threads, people generally have been pretty happy with the team selections.

    Ironically, I'd say when people seem to think before the match that Puel has got it wrong, we end up winning.

    Not too much wrong with the tactics?! Were you at the game today? I presume not.

    With all due respect - I doubt you're anywhere near the same employment bracket as Claud Puel.

    If you were doing his job - right now, you would not quit.

    What would you have done differently then? As I said, before the match, people were pretty happy with the team.

    After that, it's up to the players to perform.
