Leicester City hired former Southampton manager Clause Puel to replace Craig Shakespeare yesterday. Puel was in charge last year for Saints when they made the EFL Cup Final and finished eighth in the Premier League, but he was sacked in June anyway. He has the task of bringing Leicester up from their current standing in 14th place.

One small step was made in the Save the Crew movement. Fans and media successfully pressured owner Anthony Precourt to offer refunds on 2018 season ticket deposits. He doesn't deserve praise for this. It's something he should have done right from the original announcement of potential relocation, or the he never should have had to do in the first place. Either way, knowing the level of shrewdness he's already displayed, he will probably use anyone asking for a refund as another excuse for the city's inability to support a club, thus giving his relocation efforts more ammo.
