    Well, your Pinkun account is regularly hacked by some fella that is optimistic to the point of delusion.

    Dear lord, is van Wolfswinkel still being defended? It can only be the soppy British love of dumb animals, transferred to football. In the three top-class leagues he tried he started 39 games and came on as a sub in 30. And scored seven goals. Five of them in Ligue 1, which is generally regarded as the weakest of those five top-class leagues. He had no pace, no physical presence, no physical/mental determination (in the way that Fleck, say, or David Speedie had) and - worst of all - lousy ball control. I can't think of a striker less likely to fit into Farke's plan.

    Who would score more? Ricky in a Farke side or Pukki in a Hughton side?

    I have no idea why we're even discussing RVW still...

    I don't think it is about keeping us small- the extra £700k they will have made from this is hardly the difference between being a big or small club. Football clubs always have to walk a tightrope between maximising revenue and making fans feel exploited. The almost universally negative reaction (from a usually placid fan base) for me clearly indicates this has fallen off the tightrope.

    I can't genuinely believe that anyone who watched him in our prem season for more than a handful of games thinks that, taking Hughton out of the equation, RvW looked anything like a Premier League quality striker.

    No....didnt have the physicality or strength and was bullied by emglish league defenders Worst striker I've ever seen in norwich colours ...and I still can't believe people still peddle the Snodgrass penalty line. How fragile must a strikers confidence be if they supposedly react that badly to a penalty SOMEBODY ELSE MISSED !!?!

    Ironic that a streaker gets fined £5000 and the gang of thugs who committed burglaries in properties over East Anglia and stole high value cars one of whom netted £125000 made to pay just £1 back or face an extra day in prison. Country has gone to the dogs

    Nobody needs a car share to get to a match because nobody can get tickets.

    Pukki holds the ball up better, links up play better, is stronger, a better finisher, makes better runs and has more pace. RvW might notch a few tap ins but nothing to talk about.

    The club has got so much right it feels a bit like everyone's desperate to have a proper kick in at anyone and everyone whilst the opportunity is there. This idea hasnt worked and wont last past this season, but lets not make out it's the end of the world as we know it.

    I don't celebrate us being a self sustaining club. I regard it as a convenient "mantra" that has been invented to cover the fact that the owners get the fans (and tv) to pay for everything.

    I see the Pink Un main site is running a story on Michael Owen thinking we’ll entertain but struggle. Honestly, nobody cares.

    This could've happened under any scheme. The previous scheme didn't stop people letting other people use thier tickets/points.

    Innocent question Tillo, if you let a friend use( not saying you have, as from what I gather it's not the done thing) your season tkt, in good faith,as for some reason you cannot attend, and they acted the maggot during said match , would you feel hard done by if you also received sanctions.?

    And in exchange for that financial commitment you get a ticket to every game at a 10% discount vs individual tickets. Think it is tough to criticise the club on this one.

    Confidence is what he lost. Even the best player can look average if they have lost their confidence.....lose a yard of pace, look indecisive, tame efforts on goal etc etc.......it was a brave thing for him to come to a new club/country/league and presumably he was full of confidence to come to Norwich, but he never really showed it - you could blame the manager for that, or just the situation. Yes, he would score goals in an attacking side with plenty of width and without players who hog the ball and do not play a team game.

    RVW would score more goals than Srbeny if both given the same opportunity over the same number of games.

    From the little I saw, his movement was a different level to the players we had in the Team at the time. Trouble was, he was clearly a confidence player and once the initial momentum was lost, he didn't have the character to recover. So many times players had the opportunity to pass but chose another (worse) option, in the end it all just looked a bit sad. Given that we play Pukki in on the floor and he's got plenty of support, I think that if we had played to RVW's strengths we'd have got more out of him, a lot more.

    it shouldn't be too difficult to trace who bought that ticket, and he or she should then be exposed and be forced to bare up to what they have done, assuming the ticket was sold on I suspect the cause of him going on the pitch was a bet about City or Pukki scoring ie if City score after this I'll streak across the pitch

    I don’t think even Teemu would have scored many goals in a Hughton Norwich side, so it’s an interesting question...

    I’m just waiting for the comments on here about pundits being a joke and clear national media bias against Norwich because people are praising Chelsea more than us when they only scored 1 against Liverpool just like we did....

    Yes but thats no reason to stop selling them as Jimbo suggests. It seems as a club we are becoming a world brand and embracing it where it seems a lot of posters on here want to keep us small presumably so that they can complain we have no ambition. It's the premier league which everyone wanted except they seem to want us to remain little old Norwich a local club for local people. We tried that before...

    Somebody may still wish to buy membership though. I understand how it's become all about tickets but lot's of fans like to be members even if they never buy tickets. The narrow view of all this is astounding at times.

    Last season, there were people booing the team after 2 games. Yep... that's right. TWO. Pathetic. We know how it ended up. We didn't start well, it wasn't terrible and didn't warrant booing imo, but we won the bloomin' league. Now we're in the Prem and people are writing us off after one game against, probably, the best team in the world right now. I appreciate the comments about strengthening the team and whether we've done enough etc. I agree that our CB situation should have been rectified but let's not just blame them. The entire back line was pretty dodgy in the first half against Liverpool. But they are young. They would have been crazy excited and in the second half, those performances improved. The great thing about our young defence is their ability to take info on quickly, change what they're doing and not let their heads drop- I think some posters on this message board could learn a thing or two from them. When Zimbo and Klose are back I'll feel a bit more confident though, for sure. The point is, we really have no idea how things will turn out. We'll have some surprises in store and I'll reserve judgement until we are more than ONE game in.

    Mings had just had an excellent season for Villa so can see why he cost that much. I know there is a lot of hate for Mings due to his Ipswich past, but it is hard to argue with the impact he had on Villa's season.

    That piece has been pretty heavily panned in the analytics community. The 'intrinsic values' don't seem to represent reality at all and with no explanation how these values are determined it is a pretty counter productive article. It is basically a press release from this company with very little editorial oversight. There is no way Sam Bryam is worth £27m or Delph is worth £50m. I do agree that the Bryam deal was a very good one for Norwich though, but trying to put numbers on just how good it is seems redundant.

    Last season Liverpool routinely beat teams by 3 goals at Anfield. F55 A10 in 19 games.

    Why do people think investing in a CB would have made a significant difference all of a sudden? I watched a very expensive Chelsea defence concede 4. I watched a very expensive Villa squad sit behind the ball for 90 minutes and still end up conceding 3. This notion that spending some big money on a CB would suddenly mean we'd have turned Liverpool over is fanciful.

    I've seen more positive things written about Norwich's performance on Friday than negative things. There were some snap judgements at the time that were probably a bit knee jerk and comments made during the game - when it looked like Liverpool could go on to score 6 or 7 - that were more damning on Norwich. Post game, with a bit of reflection most comments were fairly positive for Norwich. Even Jamie Carragher said some nice things (after flip flopping several times during the game).

    I’m not sure how either party can judge after a single game, particularly one away to the European champions. Of course there were positive and negative signs but until we’ve played 8-10 games I’m not sure how anyone can form a definitive opinion. It’s highly likely we will get better as we have young players who will learn on the job, and a manager who will learn things every time we play. But nobody has any idea really at this stage about how we’ll fair or how many teams will be worse than us, it’s impossible after one game. Unfortunately football today is 24/7 punditry and opinion, air time has to be filled with something. I heard Pochettino getting criticised yesterday after they won 3-1 and people questioning Lampard’s job, totally and utterly bonkers. But something we have to put up with unfortunately.
