    The Premiership is about income and this time it looks like Norwich intend to use it to grow the Club. Something they should have done before but p!ssed it up a wall instead. The paucity and irregularity of games is miserable compared to the Championship which is mainly midweek and Saturdays as suits most supporters. This is for the benefit of the few who play in Europe and have the temerity to whinge about too many fixtures whilst having deep squads. And then there are the sudden spates of games around Christmas which also punish sides with smaller squads. The best things about the PL are getting there and the first season with your promoted side. Thereafter, for most it is dire, with one home game only some months and weeks without a win. Demoralising defeats by state funded teams to remind you of the unbridgeeable gap and arrogant fans. It used to be so much better when sides had a chance to dream as we did in finishing 3rd. But I really feel for our team, their spirit and unity, the aspirational youngsters and the born again stars and I desperately want to see them flourish along with our humble manager and thoughtful DoF. Can a system and team spirit overcome? It will make the whole greater than the sum of the parts. And finally, I'd love to see the overpaid and underinformed pundits confounded. Will it happen? The EPL isn't the dream factory it could be. Atalanta who we play in pre-season are from a similar sized city who have rubbed their Milanese neighbours noses in the dirt. Is this our omen?

    Spot on. When I started going many, many years ago, we could all go as a group and rock up and in we went, apart from the big games when we had to go in the away part of the Barclay and ask to be allowed through . Whilst I would not wish to see parts empty and do understand the supply and demand aspects here, our support is getting older (including me) and younger ones are needed. We should as a club look to do the modern equivalent of the kids of a quid with the expansion plans or target the extra season ticket holders whilst the going is good. I suspect in all honesty it will be a long wait.

    Blackburn brought the title. To suggest Leicester did is nonsense of the highest order

    Nominate your goal of the season. Post a youtube video if you can. Will then run a poll for people to vote on. I'll get the ball rolling with these two Emi Buendia vs Hull Marco Stiepermann vs Bristol City

    We have discussed, at a club level and on this board, about Godfrey's development and if he is a better fit for that defensive midfield position or centre half. Farke has said Godfrey's development at centre half would mean potentially more opportunities for him to play at the highest level and it is in that position that all the interest has arisen. However we are very aware we need a dominating defensive midfielder who really owns the park. Tom Trybull is a very popular player and quite rightly made that position his own last year. Tettey is great cover for the group who can easily come on if and when needed. But what if we cannot get in that defensive midfielder or whoever we brings in struggles or gets injured. With klose signed up and Zimmerman a true leader would a battle for Godfrey and Tom Trybull for that position be worth looking at when we are so short on finances. Godfrey has begun to read the game well from playing the centre half position. He has one hell of an engine, as seen in the Stoke game running from one box to another to break up a break away in the 2nd half. He drives at defences and you can see he can play the ball forward which is another depth to his game which could be taken advantage of. He has been a goal scorer. The alleged interest may be from his role at centre half but it is reported that others see him as that defensive midfield position. As we attack he can sit back and help klose and Zimmerman by knowing the two so well. I just wonder if a battle between Tom Trybull and Godfrey maybe a good battle to have so that we have better players on the pitch in klose and Godfrey, rather than Trybull and Godfrey. The Defensive midfield position is critical and I hope we bring in an upgrade, however top 6 teams are looking at Godfrey in that position. So should we this season?

    Trying to get the worthwhile threads back on the front page rather than all that nonsense that has been posted. Also, the Sun have Norwich linked to Nuno da Costa. A Cape Verde international who plays for Strasbourg in Ligue 1. Can play out wide or as a striker, very quick and always puts in a shift. For £5m he’d be a very good back up option to Pukki as well as someone who could offer something different out wide.

    Look this is why we need to adopt Leicester as our new rivals. Apart from also being the focus of their county, they play in Blue and stole our best player (OK we sold him to them) and a manager and hence a promotion; we can also point out that the major trophy that they won wasn't really an achievement after all. So unlike if we use Spurs or Wet Spam we can continue to have a proper chip on our shoulder about a similar sized team - always welcome - as the other lot down the road really have become irrelevant.

    Maybe we need something similar to what I believe the Watford owners do, and have other clubs that we can use as a proxy? Leeds worked as a feeder club before and they’d probably be glad to get some attention from a genuine big club.

    Godfrey is a centre back. Farke didn’t feel Ben could play defensive midfield in the Championship, so I doubt anyone thinks he can do it at Premier League level.

    If it was logically or economically feasible it would have been built by now. It all goes back to the board taking the cautious option when rebuilding after the main stand fire. In hindsight it was the wrong decision but there ya go, it is what it is. We would all like to see another three or four thousand on the capacity and it isn't a case of season ticket holders saying fcuk you, it's just economic reality.

    I was really quite impressed watching tonight. Ok so you could argue it lacks the power of the mans game, but I have got to say the way England played was superb. Perhaps George you should try watching a game, you might be pleasantly surprised .

    I think the current membership/supply and demand situation shows it’s important we do expand the capacity if we are able to stay up for a couple of seasons. its going to be more or less impossible to take my sons to Carrow Road next season. And I’ve ditched the junior canaries membership because it’s not worth it with the price increase and reduction in chances of actually getting tickets. If this situation continues long term it will damage the club.
