    Rock & Roll VAR

    I'm sure I have seen IFAB say that they dont want VAR to be so forensic with off sides but the PL seem to have chosen to use it so precisely. No other league seems to have cocked up as much as the self styled best league in the world

    Paradox in defence

    1. No 2. They played in a team that won the championship title which suggests not, but have suffered, I think from not having a regular experienced defender to organise them. 3. To an extent, we are open and attack which leaves space behind 4 About equal, their assists/goals suggest they are good going forward,not necessarily attacking, 5. Yes, 6. Yes

    Given up

    Realistically we have every right to give up, but the players,coaches etc are paid to play and coach, they arent paid to stay in the league(although I'm sure there are bonuses for that) I expect everyone to give 100% regardless of chances of success.

    Aarons £15m 😂

    It's hard to value players now. In today's market, trying to be neutral £30m with good add ons, 15%sell on fee,eng caps etc would be fair but that makes Cantwell and buendia in the £50m+ mark

    We need a song for Adam Idah

    I put an idea on twitter to the tune of ebenezer goode, having found out idah is pronounced eedah Eedah's good eedah's good ADAM eedah's good

    Anyone that thinks Farke should be sacked is an absolute moron. He should have his contracted extended if anything.

    Max Aarons 45mil

    We got a fair bit for Lewis Grabban, from plucky Bournemouth

    I will tell you when you say what proportion of credit you give each for getting us to the prem against the odds despite having to sell our best players

    Stewart Webber in Gunn club

    I wouldn't blame zonal marking for the first goal, I just remember watching it play out in slow motion, thinking Krul is going to come for that..hes going to punch that..hes going to, stay on his line. Gutted today, but I think I'd be happier if we were ****,but first half could and maybe should have been 3 or 4 nil up.its so frustrating.

    Who remembers defenders of the earth? Loved that cartoon.
  12. Gutless. We make things so bloody easy for other teams. At the throw in before the equaliser, 3 times Byram shouted at Hernandez to get tight to his man, 3 fecking times, and did he? No, he stood 5 yards off him. He hardly covered himself in glory with the build up to 2nd goal either. I'm not making him the scapegoat tho, as the majority of the team are weak, and we are simply the worst team in the league. And VAR can **** off too

    A critique of Daniel Farke

    The fact we only lost a handful of games last season suggest Farke had little need to change games, but you can also look at the number of late goals we scored to win points as plenty of examples of positive changes made. Zonal marking annoys me, but most of our players are just rubbish in the air so regardless of zonal or man marking I think we would struggle No idea about leitner but hes hardly done anything to warrant a regular start

    Godfrey to Spurs?

    Godfrey isnt that good, comfortable on ball but often beat in air, often out of position, and culpable for a few goals. Has great potential but £30m we would be crazy to turn down. Would need to get a couple in but proper specialist defenders. Godfrey is still a midfielder playing out of position to me.

    As i've said for the last 20 years

    We did for 2 seasons under Lambert and Hughton. Or did u mean forever.

    To the "child"....

    Was stupid, I think something similar happened at the river end a season or 2 ago, and always remember the Newcastle fans doing similar before we took a free kick for klose to score. Not sure u can blame it for a goal tho, we seemed to have a few issues with corners,

    Was it Amadou who blocked Arsenals last shot right near the end?? I was at other end but just saw the ball perfectly rolling out to the Arsenal player to stroke home, I think I even squealed expecting a goal!

    Complete Bulls***

    I haven't seen the replay, but from where I sat the initial free kick given which led to the penalty instant looked harsh.May be proved wrong but it looked like mcclean nicked the ball off the arsenal player fairly to me

    So, if we beat Arsenal and Southampton

    That's a very big IF but it's nice to have that confidence back after the Everton game to even think it's possible. Would be lovely to beat them both and then beat Sheff utd and go above them.

    I'd happily lose in 3rd round every time rather than any more semi final defeats just so we can get a few wins before
  21. glory.win or die.

    Paddy D and Daniel Farke

    And to be fair I'd take relegation for another Wembley win a season later

    Is 'The Model' flawed?

    The model we have for the club is simply the only model we can work to, and ensure the club survives. Unless we are bankrolled by Russian,US or middle east billionaires we have no choice so, as frustrating as it is when we simply struggle to compete,we have no other option. We could risk the club and spend every penny of the £90m or whatever it is we get from the prem, and end up as good as Watford, who are just marginally less **** than us. So we get relegated and the club becomes Bury

    I cant blame Delia or Farke , both have achieved miracles with Norwich, and to be fair Delia has overseen 3 promotions to the prem, how many clubs would love to have done that? The truth is, this is the best we can expect, in fact, this is consistently more than we should expect given our lack of money. The prem has seen more and more investment, which makes it harder and harder to compete every year, we are already seeing investment spread to the championship, my worry is how long until we can no longer compete there too.

    TWTD of the day

    Yeah he did when we were in lg1 I think in 2010 lol which I guess could be looked at as Jamie coppinger bookending when Ipswich were last better us and now the furthest behind us ever.
