I agree with the comments regarding Puel’s demeanour but I also accept it is very early days and we’ve not kicked a ball yet. Hopefully with a run of wins he will eventually grow on me and I can stay awake for the full post match interview… he wont be doing Monday Night Football anytime soon though will he!
In terms of transfer business so far…pretty underwhelmed although Pierre-Emile Højbjerg could well turn out to be decent. I would also like Redmond to prove to me that he isnt the next Aaron Lennon - nippy but otherwise bang average with no end product. I do accept though that Norwich is not the best place to showcase your attacking flare. Otherwise I am a bit concerned with how thin on the ground we are up front and in the attacking midfield positions, especially with Europe. It would be ironic if the summer that we recouped a record fee for a player sold AND the mega-bucks from the TV deal that we dont break our transfer record of £15million. Tadic is clearly being considered for the number 10 role so remains to be seen if we do splash out on someone.
I also fall in to the category of being scared shitless everytime Yoshida is named on the teamsheet. That said, the crowd singing “How shit must you be, Yoshida has scored” to the Villa fans in the league cup last year is one of my all time faveourite St Mary’s moments! So a new CB wouldnt go amiss, especially as Gardos is injured again and even retired his squad number to PEH by the look of things.
