The result this afternoon can only be a negative I would have thought. Ignoring the fact that it is more likely Puel's system that caused them creative issues, and that there have been a run of cup shocks this weekend (I always believe that once a few names drop, others gain more confidence), Puel and the Leicester hierarchy will now panic and decide they don't have enough creativity in reserve.

I don't think Barnes will actually get that much game time under Puel as he would have to play on the wing where he is a bit quieter, plus he will have to be more defensive and disciplined so he won't shine as bright. Would be good for England if he did do well though.

I'm sure we are planning a replacement, but this is going to be the first real test of Dowling. Having been at a similar placed rival before coming to us, i'm expecting Dowling to be well placed to have some good ideas in who we bring in. Maybe there is somebody like Eddie Nketiah available?

Birmingham Mail have confirmed they have until Monday to call Barnes back and expect to have a decision this week. I'm expecting Barnes to be called back either tomorrow, or after the game on Saturday (likely we have asked to keep him for a key game).

Possible that Leicester loan him back to us near the end of the window, but Puel is clearly still undecided and will want more time to make a decision. At least that's what i'd expect.

Apparently Leicester are loaning Diabete to a turkish team and because of that they are recalling Barnes.

At the start of the season they had high hopes for Diabete as he did pretty good last season but he hasnt kicked on in the up and coming promising attacker position and so they loaning him out with a view to getting Barnes back and giving him a chance.

Can't believe you had the cheek to take it off with material like that  ;D .

It's in the mirror too, doesn't mean it's true though. I'm hoping it's not.

Matt Wilson Twitter account Just

Lots of speculation flying around about Barnes. At the moment, #wba are still waiting for word from #lcfc. Based on what he's said, it does seem Puel is contemplating a recall, but Barnes just wants to play, and he's guaranteed that at Albion. But if Leicester insist...

The lad Diabate has left Leicester to turkey on loan now so I expect Barnes to be recalled in the next day or two.

this from the Leicester Mercury, it's from the 8th Jan though.
https://www.leicestermercury.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/latest-futures-leicester-city-duo-2408142

the last paragraphs state:

Puel said before the FA Cup exit at Newport County that there were more positives than negatives in recalling the 21-year-old, and internal discussions have continued with a final decision expected in the coming days.

However, it is now looking less likely that Barnes will be recalled and he is now expected to remain at Albion for the remainder of the season.

Puel is the favourite to be the next Prem manager sacked according to "The sackrace", he's even ahead of Wagner. Seems a strange one to me, thought he was doing ok, FA Cup aside. Could affect Barnes' recall.

Ar kid, who is STH at kingpower says that all is not well there,
The the tragedy with the chairman rallied them for a while but it is showing signs of unravelling again.  In his words there is a strong clique of players who wield too much influence and they saw Ranieri off and will see Puel off as well. Obviously just his opinion but it sounds perfectly plausible.

There have been rumblings regarding style of football and discontent in the dressing room for much of the season.

Jamie Vardy has been quite vocal about his own frustrations and misgivings re' Mr Puel.

From what I've read in various media sources that seems about right. Winning the league seems to have empowered far too many egos.

Strange one really as, aside from Vardy and Schmeichel, you wouldn't keep anymore of that title winning side now. Fuchs, Simpson, Morgan, Albrighton, Okazaki, King are the only ones I can think of that are left, all of which are pretty crap

I think Vardy is on the slide aswell...looks like a touch of pace has gone, but he was so quick he is still quicker than most but once in decline its a slope that keeps going.

On Barnes, im worried, with Puel under pressure he may take him back to give their supporters a lift. I hope im wrong.

TBH though Southampton got rid of Puel when in the top half and look at them now. Cant believe he is under pressure when 7th and a +GD

Puel’s football must be even worse than Pulis’. I can only imagine that it is all structure and no style and creativity.

What a massive blow to our promotion challenge IF we dont replace him with a player of similar qualities. Gutted though!

Terrible news but we'll survive. Need to get someone in quickly though, it's a pivotal role in our current formation.
Hope he takes the Prem by storm and breaks into the England squad.
