    Are you kidding? We’d just scored twice to convert what was looking to be a disappointing defeat, into a leading position. This via 2 goals within a few minutes of each other, in the last stages of the game, towards the end of an incredible season with the title in our sights, when every win is bringing the dream that bit closer, that bit more quickly. Not celebrate wildly? “You cannot be serious!” If you were, I’d have to wonder to what set of standards in your mind you hold players and fans - i.e. the people who make football a reality. If I were to be uncharitable I’d fear it might be a purely theoretical, academically generated framework with little relation or relevance to football - or human life - as they are actually lived.

    My views exactly - it's a shame we can't calculate the points his great blocks/ interceptions have saved us!

    I'm guilty of blurting out the occasional expletive. I definitely use Carrow Road as place to let out all my pent up anger; usually directed at the referee. It's easy to forget that it will have an impact on the people around us and, on reflection, it is not the kind of behaviour I want to demonstrate - especially in front of children. Thanks for calling this out. I think a lot of us on here could do with being a little bit more thoughtful in our choice of words.

    Thought it was more to do with how well Reading played against us than the fact we didn’t have Buendía. We still created numerous chances and should have won the game but i can’t remember seeing a better containing and defensive display at Carrow rd than the other night. Took a special strike to finally get through. That said we are most definitely a better team with Buendía in the side and who knows, he may have been able to create something special earlier in the game to have got us level/in front and won us the game. Harsh on the effort and display the 11 that were on the pitch put in to say we only draw and lose because Buendía doesn’t play. POTS is very very close for me between Pukki and Buendía but I’ll vote Pukki as it’s true you’re only as good as your strikers and he’s been immense. Yes he’s had the best creativity in the championship behind him but he still has to put them away and his conversion rate is fantastic, not to mention his general all round play.

    I sat in section G last night row EE there was a bloke about 2 rows behind us constantly shouting ,commenting on the game and shouting the F word and C word loudly , to his right there was a Dad and his daughter roughly about 10 years old ,I know it always happens but this was over the top .felt sorry for the family people in the stand .

    I feel sorry for anyone that didn’t celebrate or feel the emotion at that moment as much as everyone inside Carrow rd did. You really do seem to take everything too seriously. I lived in the moment as did all the players and the coaching staff and every fan in the ground. Regardless of what happened after or what happens for the rest of the season, it was bloomin’ marvellous. (A goal I celebrated almost more than any I ever have was Holtys belter against Man U. The fact Giggs went on to win it for them doesn’t matter at all, it was a beautiful goal that created a beautiful moment that has stuck in my mind ever since)

    True we’re in terrible form. Only 25 points out the last 27 available, what went wrong ?

    I must admit that watching the game I was surprised at the incredible looking celebrations where everyone went over to the sidelines and players/subs/trainers etc jumping all over each other after the second goal. It was dramatic and it was fantastiuc to get those two goals, but it was only 2-1 and I can only think that the euphoria was there because we had turned the game round so dramatically - but it was only 2-1....

    Gave us one of the best memories in recent times, with the play off final win but can't really say there was much more than that. KC is right about transfers... He was terrible at picking players and paid well over the odds for them! Perhaps more the board's fault for handing out huge contracts, but Neil oversaw these signings and we're still paying for one or two of them now! He seemingly had no ability to develop players and he didn't trust in youth, instead preferring seasoned veterans who, for the most part, were useless for us. One thing I will say is that he gives the most dull interviews after a match and always looks completely pi$$ed off whether his team has won or not... Take from that what you will!

    They couldn't even get that right. I'm pretty certain it was white wine.

    It was a very good save, but who can say? I do recall Krul making an excellent double stop away recently (maybe Millwall)?

    I did't say anything about complacency - and I was only talking about the last three or four minutes where we didn't see out the match well enough. I agree totally with your last senternce though.

    In my opinion, he did very well when tasked with an existing squad, but struggled with recruitment and managing the bigger egos. Up until last season we were still very much suffering with the poor players on high wages that were brought in under his tenure. His other major error was to change his style of play after a defeat to Newcastle in the Prem - I think he lost belief in his own abilities at that point. That said, he was a very young manager when with us, so doubtless would have learnt from his experience. Odd choice for the Baggies tbh.

    It’s very simple... If either Sheff Utd or Leeds lose tomorrow, and we beat Wigan on Sunday, then we will have either a 9 or 10 point gap with just 4 games to go. Our rivals would only be able to get 12 points maximum from the remaining games. The unstoppable Buendía will be available for the last 3 games too. Just think about that for a minute. I am not in the slightest bit concerned, we will be promoted, it’s our season!

    You've obviously played in goal at a high standard and never conceded a soft goal , saying that they werent soft goals. Both very good finishes

    Emi was missed in so many ways it was palpable I thought. Those players playing off him , like Stiepermann , Onel and Pukki suddenly didn't look so effective. It certainly wasn't all about Cantwell (although I doubt he will start against Wigan) but losing a quick footed, pacey, skillful player , absolutely brimming with confidence was always going to be tough. Games change on moments. Last night the game had a few big moments and for once , unlike for example Middlesbrough , they didn't all work in our favour. I reckon we need 6 points from 5 games . If I was to rank our chances of victory in the five i would say home to Blackburn most likely , away to Villa least likely. The others who knows. We have now lost to Preston , and drawn against Reading. Leeds have lost to QPR, and Sheff Utd lost at home to Bristol City. If we don't make it we should be shot. But anyone expecting to be promoted with 5 or even three games to go is deluded.

    How about changing it to 'three stars on the shirt'?

    To be honest it was one of those false results that lower teams often pick up towards the end of a season. I was reminded of our 2-2 draw at Wolves last season. We were far superior and they had something to hold onto after the breakaway goal. Six or seven more points will be enough.

    He is a potentially world class centre back. At the top level he is a tall, fast, two-footed, calm, ball-playing, strong in the air, highly competitive, level-headed, English Centre back. A rare - and therefore highly valuable - commodity. He will command - by some distance - the highest value of any of our players. What may occur upon promotion is that Klose signs a new contract and - when confronted by superior teams - we play with 3 centre backs, allowing Godfrey the slightly libero role. Godfrey would be wasted in midfield. There are many other players who can be found, bought or used at CDM, it requires positional discipline, but his gifts at centre back demand that he stay there. From a purely business point of view - we are self-sustaining let us not forget - our best asset must be placed in the best shop window. A fabulous player. Enjoy him now. Parma
