    Disrespectful. Russ may have slowed up in his last couple of seasons, but he was a valued member of our team during that golden period - it appears some people have short memories. Never a CB in my opinion anyway, was far better as a RB, and his clear passion for the club was such that he’d have played as a striker had it been called for - he never hid from anything, even when he knew he was in the firing line. There are 100’s, if not 1000’s, of former City players that are instantly forgettable - and Russ certainly isn’t one of them, he may not be a Holt or a Hoolahan, but he played his part with those boys and deserves a little more respect than such stupid comments as your ‘little clap’ remark.

    Fair play to the Ipswich fans.

    Firstly, the best 'restricted view' ticket I've ever purchased! Bar Chris Kamara cheesy grin in my peripheral vison, the view was unblemished! In all a thoroughly hard fought and well deserved point. We needed to stop the run of defeats and we did that. We could have won, and were in the ascendency for a good 20 minute spell in the second half. But chances were at a premium and in all honesty I'd have taken a draw if presented at any point during the game, even when on top. The positives; well for me, I thought we defended much better as a unit. Godfrey had Callum Wilson in his pocket up until his injury, at which point Tettey took over and impressively carried on where Godfrey left off. Amadou was very good too, and read the game very well. I also thought Trybull made a big difference when he came on and I'm delighted to see him back. With all the clamour for Leitner to play (myself included) I'm starting to think Trybull maybe the better all round player. But the biggest positive for me was the return of Hernandez. Boy have we missed him. As soon as he got on the pitch he was running at defenders and causing problems. Our game improved almost instantly, he just gives the opposition much more to think about which creates time and space for others. Chapeau Onel. A mention for Buendia too, he grew into the game and clearly enjoyed the extra bit of space afforded to him by Onel's arrival. As for the negatives, I'll keep it brief as to not overshadow an ultimately positive day. Todd Cantwell wasn't at the races. He gave the ball away too often, and didn't offer any threat going forward or protection defensively. For me, he's the one to make way for Hernandez. Leitner was disappointing too. It pains me to say, as really like him. But he looked lost in the more advanced role. Too slow to press, and just looked unsure of what he was being asked to do. He made very little impact on the game. I think his only position is CDM next to a Tettey or Amadou. I'm not sure he works next to Trybull as both tend to want to play similar balls and be the 'quarter back' player. Anyway just thought I'd add some further views on the game. It was a thoroughly enjoyable day out with a positive outcome to boot. Also a special mention for the Onel Hernandez song. I think its to the tune of Heartbeat? Yesterday was my first game this season and I can't recall hearing it before. Sounded fantastic though! OTBC.

    After the horror show of the Villa game and our well publicised defensive frailties that's a superb point. When Godfrey went off I thought that a Bournemouth win was inevitable, but in fact we upped our game and looked the team most likely to win it. Massive performances from Amadou and Tettey with Lewis and McLean also very impressive.

    It's weird thing to get riled about. At the end of the day, it made the whole occasion all about Norwich, which worked for me. Rather than having someone relevant to Hoolahan's career like Blackpool or Ireland (there is no one else, is there? Livingston? Shelbourne?) you had two teams chock full of City legends. I know they didn't plan for it when it was announced, but with it coinciding with the title parade it worked so much better than having a weak Irish team. As it was, on the day the current squad celebrated with the fans on City Hall and throughout the city centre, we had two sides full of heroes from previous squads. And it gave us the chance to give Ivo Pinto a good send off too. To be honest, the whole day is pushing for the top ten of best days of my life so far.

    Interesting point actually about the standard the ref has been reffing at. You’ll quite often see a player get a yellow for a fairly innocuous foul, but it’s the third or fourth they’ve committed. It’s that sort of thing which VAR can’t be used for. Man Utd’s goal yesterday was the perfect example of when the on field ref should go and look at the monitor. If he goes over there, sees that and thinks “yes, I saw that earlier and still think it would have been a soft free kick”, then fine. If he goes and says “oh actually, I didn’t realise he’d made contact but can now see he did”, then great. But at the moment you’ve got the upstairs VAR ref guess I g what he on-field ref saw and trying not to make the on-field ref look stupid. Both of those things can be avoided if the on-field ref makes the decision with the aid of an on-screen replay.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA OH NO. SERIOUSLY? YOU PROVED 2 OF THE 3 IN ONE POST YOU UTTER TWERP. Liar and thick - tick both boxes. Liar, because that it is not "Pearl", it is a model named Ayanna Jordan (semi-famous on instagram). That exact photo is available in her portfolio here https://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/664566/viewall https://www.instagram.com/ayannajordan/?hl=en Thick, because you are clearly too thick to realise that in 2019 you can track anything down online, especially if it is as simple as doing a reverse image search. It took me less than 3 minutes to find out who this really was. AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Jesus Christ Swindo, good luck digging yourself out of this hole.

    I wouldn't necessarily read much into that- their players will naturally be up for Liverpool at home more than Norwich away. Hopefully their inconsistent form means a bit of a comedown next week.

    I think the best thing is the fact their fans were taking the p*ss out of our draw against Bournemouth yesterday. I know, lack of self awareness and that.

    If you were a neutral or a Cherries fan the 0-0 draw yeaterday was a dirge. If you are simply a Norwich fan it was a triumph against odds, a response to adversity and a heavy defeat and a valuable point with an edge of disappointment not to claim all three. But if you are a purist who understands the nuances of the beautiful game it was a classic moment (they aren't all about goals). The sight of a loyal ageing warrior just back from injury showing such match fitness and stamina. A veteran player taking the armband from a young departing leader and marshaling his troops. A player out of position alongside another still adapting to English football and also out of position and forging a partnership. It was magnificent. Tettey and Amadou roved across the back looking like covering midfielders without back up. Their style and motion added to the drama and the against the odds scenario. Tettey has had some fine moments but this was amongst his greatest and made a forgettable match one to remember. The clean sheet and point are at least as important to our mentality and morale going forwards as the two wins. Necessity might be the mother of invention but she is the grandmother of character.

    The phrase you should use is not "peanuts" it is "corrupt". It’s such an obvious requirement that as a public office holder you do not award yourself a (no-bid too) contract ... and "I won't make a profit" is also no defense, awarding yourself the contract to avoid usual financial losses because your resort has very few bookings at that time of year is still a financial benefit. I can’t believe you think it’s OK.

    Liverpool fans won’t be happy with that decision. Salt of the earth people who only want fairness.

    He touched the man, that doesn't mean its a foul. Origi was clearly looking for it. Referee yards away, I'm more than comfortable the right decision was made.

    Put your political bias to one side, if you can, and ask yourselves if you can disagree in any way with this statement. “Clubs are part of the social fabric that binds us together. They are too important to be left in the hands of bad owners who put their business interests ahead of everything else, marginalise supporters and even put the financial security of clubs at risk.” “Sport must be run in the interests of those who participate in it, follow it and love it, not just for the privileged and wealthy few."

    I agree with this. I expected McLean to play in Stieperman's position. Leitner looks better playing deeper.

    "Ben Godfrey lasted 50 minutes before departing in a fresh injury scare during Norwich City's 0-0 Premier League draw at Bournemouth Daniel Farke sought to play down fears Ben Godfrey's injury exit at Bournemouth is the latest twist in Norwich City's central defensive curse. But Farke was cautiously optimistic Godfrey will be in his plans for Manchester United's visit to Carrow Road next week. "We have to wait a bit. If I am honest it was a bit too early after the hernia surgery and just one training session," said Farke. "It was worth taking the risk because he was top class in the first half and it was important to have him on the pitch. "Ben was a great leader but after 50 minutes he felt some pain and I hope it was just his body getting a bit tired after the one training session only. "Not a big setback, just a small one. I hope he is available for Manchester United but let's wait at this stage."

    Okay so this justifies carrying on with Delia, right? Just like Fulham getting relegated justifies spending no money preparing for the EPL. Villa have moved on from Xia and thrashed Norwich 5-1 so that really drives a coach and horses through what you are inferring.
