    Ryan Bennett's resurrection

    I always thought that Bennett and Klose were our best CB partnership at the time (and said so) . Bennett didn't play consistently well, but you could see that he had something, and as always, players need coaching/tactics/partnerships to flourish. I'm not going to claim I could see him flourishing for a top 8 Prem side, but he certainly had something to play in the top flight

    Sheff U v Palace

    I think there's no doubt we were the two most 'attractive' (and bloody effective!) sides in the Division last year. It will be interesting to see how our respective styles hold up at this level. Do you think Villa will stay up? I don't think they will

    Sheff U v Palace

    How do you think your team played Blademark? Would you be confident of your team staying up with the squad you have and the playing style you have?

    VAR at Carrow Road yesterday

    Early on, Pukki could easily have gone down under a challenge, but rode it, and created a chance for Cantwell. That would have been pretty straight forward for Mr Hooper you would have thought, but he does have history of course, and that may have influenced Teemu's decision to take the tackle or ride it.

    Upper or Lower?

    Ricardo's report v Newcastle

    That's 3 consecutive half's of football (in the Prem) that we have won. Anyone know what our best run (of winning halfs) is?

    Tom (Super Tom) Trybull

    Tbf, each player deserves their own thread on here, after that performance

    Ricardo's report v Newcastle

    I would repeat this word for word (except I'd need to replace 66 with 46)

    Ricardo's report v Newcastle

    Leitner - just WOW, WOW, WOW Buendia and Stiepermann were the weak links, and they still had excellent games! £40M striker? You've been mugged Newcastle

    How Much Do You Deserve An Away Ticket?

    Ha, in your face Herman. I beat you by half a point.Can I have one of your West Ham tickets now?
  15. 1974 Arsenal at home, FA Cup , lost 1-0. The only other thing I can remember is Alan Ball running round and me thinking "We don't get many gingers round here"

    Who to trust- pundits or fans?

    He's supposed to be the learned one Purple! Another example of the erosion of standards. The World is falling apart!

    Who to trust- pundits or fans?

    It's probably down to my educashun, but is 'far less good' the correct term here?

    ‘We support our local team” chant

    Were any of the fans in our end who were wearing half and half scarves (I can't recall seeing adults at any other City League games wearing them) singing about supporting our local team?

    Opposition fans in our away seats

    We have had various away fans, over the years, who have sat near us. Basically, the stewards give them a warning to sit on their hands (the fans hands, not the stewards! ) and not draw attention to themselves. Any that haven't been able to do that , are escorted out

    Simon Hooper - VAR

    Jeez, even with the advantage of lots of camera angles, and slow motion they still don't trust him to make the correct decision, so they decide to give him an assistant!

    Who to trust- pundits or fans?

    Anyone who is 'in the middle' like you DCB is spot on, because no body knows yet if our style will overcome enough teams to stay up or our 'lack of spending' will bite us in the a***. The vast majority of Norwich fans know a lot more than the pundits about our Club, and believe we will stay up because of our recruitment/tactics etc as opposed to our green and yellow spectacles. There are plenty of 'experts' (being paid a shed load of money) who haven't got the gumption to look beyond what a Club spends as the only definition of success at our level .
  23. Well, this has a nice warm feeling about it.................. I'll go for an Arsenal win please, and in our game, over 2.5 goals Good luck anyone in green n yella

    Worried about your autocorrect Mello, and what you have historically typed............

    In context, how many teams took points off Liverpool at Anfield last season? Their last competitive game was becoming the Champions of Europe for crying out loud. How many neutrals think we are going to get tonked tonight? Loads I would imagine. But...........
