"I agree with BS shock"

Bs is the voice of reason on here,i know its hard to believe but i agree with his comments about last night and while i am at it two worldy saves from Kasper.
I know there are some that blame Puel for everything that goes wrong or quote strange decisions but judge people by there response to problems not just not getting it right changing something when its not working.
Formation or tactics did not cause the first goal errors skill and a bounce in favour of the opposition.
The fact that Mo was silenced and Pool had less shots at goal showed how good the team played. We need more confidence in front of goal.

And if i am being mean Gray needs a brain transplant because the one he has got is not working.

We got a couple of good calls but when the reds only clear the third of the pitch that whey are attacking you have to say they got what they deserved.

Puel is a very good tactician. He is a smart coach but your team don't have the players to play on the front foot and pressing. You need midfielders who can pass the ball quick and between the lines.

Generally agree Nev, except for the fact that the tactics didn’t cause the first goal.

Forthe first 10 minutes we were all over the place. Evans was getting pulled out of position almost constantly, and Chilwell had 2 players to mark.

As a result, we were always going to concede. The goal didn’t come down the right, but it did come as a result of our defence looking nervy and out of position. If Liverpool had been on their game we would have been 3-0 down and out of it 10 mins in.

Now, that sounds like me being critical of Puel. It’s not. It’s just acknowledging that what we tried to do didn’t work.

Puel then deserves teal credit for fixing it. And fast.

Once Albrighton switched to a wide position, he and Pereira linked up delightfully. I can’t beleive I’m saying this but Gray gave more cover to Chilwell, and we settled.

I can’t beleive I’m going to say this, but Ndidi and Mendy then ran the show. We were closing the space in midfield, pressing without losing shape.

I can’t beleive I’m going to say this, but it was a masterclass front Puel. Our defence and midfield worked in tandem to totally nullify Liverpool. The best team in the league! We looked like we had shape, and the ability to cause them problems.

It was near perfect after the first 10.

But if we are to praise Puel (and we should) we should also be constructive about the mess that was the first 10.

Ndidi. Oh Ndidi, where have you been hiding? Back to his absolute best last night. He’s not become a bad player overnight. He’s class. I hope Puel can continue to get more from him.

Welcome back Wilfred.

I agree that we should agree to agree.

My thoughts on yesterday:

- I feared the worst when they scored with their first attack. So credit to the team and Puel for calming the initial storm then slowly swinging the game in our direction.
- The back 5 were terrific.
- Liverpool really struggled with the conditions and made a lot of errors because of them. But only clearing our penalty area at half time was very disappointing and looked rather desperate.
- Maguire's potential red and Ricardo's potential penalty concession: I'm not convinced by either but I've seen them given. In fact this was a rare match when I felt a referee was being overly generous to us. Particularly rare considering we were playing a big club.

We’re 11th, about spot on for this team Puel has built and his tactics.

The team Puel has built?! Hardly. Most of the players were here before he was....

It's easy to forget that Mendy was here before Puel.
