    She's stating the bleedin' obvious, but what a total hypocrite she is! Kuenssberg's reporting was severely, pro-Remain in the first couple of years + proceeding the referendum vote and the only reason she's saying this now is because her favoured Labour Party lost heavily and she and the Brussels Broadcasting Corporation are frit of Boris's and the Conservatives threat to delegitimise the biased organisation, which is laughable as they pretty much delegitimise themselves. Number 10 has rightly been boycotting Radio 4's 'Today' programme and Sarah Sands, former editor of the latter, has stated "It’s a pretty good time for the Right-wing to put the foot on the windpipe of the corrupt broadcaster."

    And this time it is Highland Canary in a double act with Midlands Canary so we are totally spoiled for miserabilism...

    Mat Hancock suggests this is possible. We'll start off with 0 points but a win will mean that we don't lose 3 points and will also gain 3 points so that makes it 6 new points.

    Probably not a popular opinion but I don't think they should be spending big on anybody; that ship sailed in the summer I'm afraid. If we start panic buying over-priced players in January, then how exactly is this season going to be any different to our previous recent excursions to the top flight? Sort it out in the Summer or plan to go down in the Spring. If any younger players for the future appear on the radar at a good price, then by all means snap them up. OTBC

    We have had a rash of racist incidents at high profile matches in recent times. Everyone is blaming it as a societal problem which of course it is but football gives a forum for the bigots to carry out their racist bile whilst hiding amongst a crowd of their peers who will not identify the miscreants. Football needs to start to put its house in order to stamp racism out by taking positives steps to close parts of grounds where home supporters are found to be guilty i.e. Chelsea and Tottenham recently hitting clubs in the pocket. Start with small areas maybe a few rows where the racists congregate which seems to be close to the touchline. Then if the racism is not snuffed out close parts of the ground and then deduct points. Racists will be swiftly identified and not be welcomed. The FA and EPL need to start taking the strongest action to start taking this seriously. And urge UEFA and FIFA to take progressive action to take the matter seriously rather than the half hearted approach they have adopted. Racists not welcome at Carrow Rd and happily not in attendance. Not the same at all clubs. Decisive action needed now. Will we see it maybe not.

    There’s a big difference in “giving up” or “being realistic with accepting relegation”. Theres no doubt out of all three teams promoted we spent the least, have a young exciting squad and a manager who played the game the fluid technical way which on its day looks superb. Maybe with a bit of fortune and without injuries to our key CB we would have put a few more points on the board by now. Unfortunately now Godfrey is injured we’re short on class at the back having to rely on Hanley for the time being. That said it’s far better to accept the likelihood of relegation and enjoy each game for what it is than try to look at the table all the time. Like Taxes, Norwich relegation is inevitable! The key to next seasons team will be holding onto our own youngsters and development of Idah and other youngsters to strengthen a very strong championship team.

    His performances this season have been a revelation. I was one that thought his chances would be limited and he may have gone out on loan. If we’re judging by a monetary valuation then his must be by far the biggest increase in value in the squad this season. Has looked every bit a PL player and if his form continues at some point you’d expect an international call up.

    Boris should have put privatisation of the BBC in the Tory manifesto to guarantee an even greater majority.

    Me too, talking to a Leicester fan this morning , first thing he said was " that Cantwell's a nice player" full of compliments he was, about lots of our players and the way we play. Then he went back to Cantwell, reckoned he looked really hard to mark, never considered that myself , will watch out for it.

    And another really well taken goal on Saturday (he played a big part in the build up too). Apparently Norfolk is going to be invaded by flocks of swallows next Summer...

    It doesn’t help when Sky are too craven to call it out and get their presenter to spout some b*llocks like “these aren’t the views of Sky Sports” when Gary Neville points out the problem.

    It strikes me as extraordinary that the Government is putting pressure on football over racism. Do they think that people become racists only when they're at a football match? It beggars belief. We all thought this problem had gone away but 3 years ago it suddenly started getting worse again. If the Prime Minister and his Government wonder why, perhaps they should take a long hard look in the mirror.

    Racism is absolutely everywhere in society, that antifa lot is some of the worst.

    Racsim is society's problem, not footballs. When you have a PM who has made racist remarks and then gets re-elected with a near landslide, then it strikes me that those up high are quite happy to condone that sort of language and behaviour as its a vote winner. then you have the President of the USA making even worse racist statements...well what do you expect?

    How can you expect society not to be racist when the very top of our establishment have been accused of it, i.e Islamophobia and racism in the Conservative party and anti-semitism in Labour. And it isn't just Britain, e.g. Joffra Archer in New Zealand. Unfortunately right wing beliefs seem to be becoming even more prevalent across the world and I fear the situation will get worse before it gets better.

    Not even a single player shortlisted despite three promotions during that time. Holt and Pukki not even shortlisted, but Grabban is. Tammy Abraham is. Fat Ross McCormack is. Pablo Hernandez in ahead of Knockaert? Grealish there, yet Maddison not even nominated. Bizarre. It's like we fell into some kind of Bermuda triangle.

    Leaving aside the irrelevant waffle, factless assertion, false logic (Johnson's landslide won't help much in negotiations with the EU) and the already debunked 'They needs us more...' argument (has Bootle paid no attention at all to how talks with the EU have gone so far?) there is only one real prediction: ''The Johnson government is going to succeed in doing trade deals with the EU and several other countries, and without preserving close regulatory alignment with the EU.' Note for starters that Bootle doesn't give a time limit for these supposed deals. He is not promising they will happen by December 31 2020. Secondly, I have not seen anyone claim that if the UK does a trade deal with Kyrgyzstan, say, or the Federated States of Micronesia it will have to have close regulatory alignment with the EU. As to the relevant question of an EU-UK trade deal, Bootle fudges his prediction by not defining what he means by 'close regulatory alignment'. Without that definition he can later argue that whatever alignment continues to exist really isn't close, provided it is not total. But the real point is that, again, no-one is saying the UK can only have a trade deal if alignment stays close. The EU certainly is not saying that. Only, and this is crucial, that the less the alignment the less of a trade deal it will be. And perhaps, although he doesn't admit it, Bootle understands this reality, because nowhere in that prediction is there any mention of how good these trade deals will be. Odd, that.

    I would also like to see Roberts's loan terminated with someone else who can contribute to the first team XI.

    I think the reality is we’re resigned to build on the premise of relegation. I can’t see three major outlays on players who will command premiership salaries, if we do it’ll likely be loan. More likely as this weekend will aloud we’re not being outclassed by many teams, we’re holding our own, just short on taking our chances to kill the game. So likely to see very minor changes in staff this window, we might invest in younger promising players who will be looked at good enough to get us up next season, than keep us up this.

    I'm quite surprised that people seem to be turning on Webber. He should be praised for what he has achieved here and he deserves a bit more trust/patience/faith than what I'm reading on here. Jumping ship as soon as we get relegated? Based on what? I wasn't there but I'm sure his comments weren't intended as some have interpreted them. After the Man City win, he spoke of how much of an advantage that kind of an atmosphere is to the team. I guess he's just trying to encourage the fans to up it a bit.

    Agreed, although I would argue we need another CB so we only need to play one of Zimbo, Hanley and Godfrey. Should’ve signed Rhodes the summer, relying on Dennis to try and save the match is not an option at this level. It wasn’t even an option last season to be fair!
