    Watch the Pinkuns shows ‘The champions’ for a full comparison to Gunn (and Ruddy). Yes Krul has had more errors leading to goals (however as mentioned, in a much more attacking side)but in every other area, Krul comes out on top. Has had a fantastic season, crucial to our success in many ways and was free. Not sure what fans expect. He also knows the PL, has a full season of football following a long spell out, will get a full pre season and is at a perfect age for a gk.

    I can't recall us paying 15 million for Krul either, which is what we'd have to pay to eradicate those mistakes, regular or otherwise.

    I think I'm pretty good at this game I've taken inspiration though and started it as a wider football version on a different forum I use.

    We've got a real treat because Herman is going to pick the final selections. He will post them tomorrow night so there's time yet for more people to get involved. Good luck Herman

    Loitering with intent to use a pedestrian crossing. Coughing without due care and attention. Wearing a loud shirt in a built-up area during the hours of darkness. Looking at me in a funny way Walking on the cracks in the pavement. Walking around with an offensive wife. (Big thanks to Not the Nine O'Clock News!)

    Wanabees ? When I looked after an under 12s team they won five and drew three out of the eight matches they played

    Will let the management team decide this one.

    As a player I can understand the argument (though I still think Rhodes is better) but after everything that’s happened, his attitude on the pitch and the fact he was frozen out completely from a squad that then subsequently won the league as a unit, not as individuals, Oliveira has no place anywhere near the club.

    First signing Borussia Dortmunds Felix Passlack who played a key role in Norwich Citys promotion to the Premier League.

    I just wrote a piece on the Idah thread exactly noting this issue. I believe it was Alan Pardew who said you need 4 strikers in the prem., I would agree. The modern premier League teams first 11 also includes the rotation of many of the extended squad. Therefore If Srbeny was sold, and Oliveira left as we all expect, it would not be a good position to be in. So for me I cannot see him moving on at all. I do not think you shoe horn Roberts, as I have seen some mention on this board, in to the striker position. Srbeny is going to be here as 3rd or 4th striker. We need a player to challenge pukki who will actually get more game time than we think, as Farke is going to need 2 very capable strikers. The third could be a loan from a prem team or a hidden gem from overseas. I do respect the view of not changing a winning team, but it is a squad game and we will need goals from our number 2 striker too and Srbeny may get his chance with injuries, suspensions etc. Let's not forget Lambert bringing in Steve Morrison and I believe he and grant Holt had 20ish goals between them. I think we need the same situation this upcoming season.

    Did really well coming on against Birmingham in the first match, playing deeper and his direct running caused some problems for their defence and definitely helped us towards getting the result we did after being behind. Chances limited after that of course, but did ok when called upon and seems like a player who will give his all.

    Pardew played with 2 strikers, teams that only play 1 don’t need 4 in the squad. That just leads to having a Becchio who never gets a game, costs decent money and grumbles.

    A lot will depend on what kind of loan move Norwich could potentially find for Idah. I can’t imagine any Championship clubs will want him, and debatable if a League One club would take a risk on him. Would Idah gain much from going to League Two or the National League and getting kicked about for a year? Maybe he should go to Dortrecht as their seems a good link there. As he only turned 18 a few months ago, I don’t think another year in Norwich U23s would be the worst thing for his development. A bad loan would certainly be worse.

    They could go up at the first attempt as many relegated clubs have in the recent past. It is probably an easier ask than Premier league survival for a newly promoted Championship side. Neither is it beyond the bounds of possibility that both clubs meet in the same division again the season after the next. However whereas they can then expect a return to mid-table mediocrity at best and a struggle with relegation again at worst, NCFC, newly enhanced with a squad of PL experienced players and bankrolled by a season at the top-table and parachute payments can expect to be challenging once again at the top end of the table. The last season was not "just for Christmas" as they say and the on-going benefits to be gleaned from our success as opposed to their own version of a complete disaster will effect the fortunes for both clubs for some time to come. That famous gap will need some considerable time if it is ever to be breached. There seems to be the usual deluded element among the binmen that PL can do a repeat of his Carrow Road days and be the figurehead in a club renaissance back to the big time. Conveniently ignoring their manger's subsequent lack of any real success since leaving our club they seem blind to the fact that he had far more going for him at City than he will ever have at Portman Road, and I am not just talking about the Culverhouse/Holt/Hoolahan talents that were behind him. Average attendance of nearly 25, 000 after quite a few seasons in the doldrums as opposed to just the 12, 000 season ticket sales achieved by that debt laden, transfer money bereft club speaks volumes when considering the future prospects of the respective clubs when dealing with the trials of a season in League One. Whatever happens next season the dominance of this particular rivalry is set in NCFC's favour for some considerable time to come, and may be for evermore such is their perilous situation.

    Ross McCormack was released today - what a combination they'd be. Berahino would have to pick up McCormack for training though - he has a bit of trouble with his own 'Bad Gateway'. I wonder if he lives at number 502?

    Exactly. Although it does perhaps suggest that what I thought was likely (we would sign a youngish goalkeeper who we would be looking to make first team in a couple years but also a potential immediate option if Krul has a rough patch) is more likely than an immediate number one replacement.

    Agreed. McGovern as one injury away from our starting lineup is suicide. Not even good enough backup for the Championship. We need a backup / starting competitor keeper. No question. Prudence is the sensible avenue. We need to and will invest decent money in players but we need to do it in a prudent, sensible, and sustainable manner. I do not think, without blowing a significant portion of our budget, that we can improve the GK position. If we were to buy Gunn or equivalent, which, would improve this position, it would cost 10m at the bare minimum (probably more), if we did that and then couldn't afford a decent striker to compete with Pukki or midfielder for Trybull / Tettey, it would be much worse. Still need backup though.

    If BD were willing to sell him for a mill then he could be a good punt. We need cover for Aarons, Passlack knows the club and the set up now and i for one dont hold his lack of height against him. Could do a lot worse imo.
