    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.

    Simon Hooper - VAR

    We will have a pen review in the last minute, and VAR will show Hooper bad been recording BBC2

    Strangely I'm feeling quite positive and proud tonight. Our defence was poor first half, almost rabbit caught in the headlights but 2nd half more aggressive more mobile and more switched on and overall i think we played the better football. Liverpool scored due to our own errors not clever incisive play. With klose/Zimmerman, and Amadou instead of MacLean i think we wouldnt have lost tonight. Glad to get this game out of the way, can enjoy the weekend now and wait for Newcastle which is when we really do need to start our season.

    Wayne Rooney’s Derby County.

    I think Rooney will do well, never really had pace to lose so can see him doing well. The MLS has improved alot, having said that kei kamara is still scoring goals so it can't be that high in quality

    A couple of transfer rumours...

    No deal is better than a bad deal......

    So Then - time to nail your colours to the mast

    Trying to take my emotional connection away, I would look at Norwich transfer business and predict 20th. I fancy is to score in most games, but I can't see many clean sheets. But i honestly feel we are 1 Good CDM away from mid table. Maybe letting my heart rule head but I'm going for a lofty 17th ahead of Brighton palace and Southampton.

    3rd kit apparently leaked...

    Surely that applies to any team sport, like rugby for instance? The all blacks seem to manage ok.

    Jordan Rhodes

    Sounds like taking the **** but if we had offered to take over his wages then that's £2.3m in wages if rumours are true us on around 45k pw. And as much as i like Rhodes I wouldn't want to outlay much more on someone unlikely to have resale value.

    Inside No. 9

    The 12 days of Cristine.. great series . A few hit n miss episodes but the hits are incredible.. And once you see them all watch them again, they have a hare statue that's in every episode.

    Spending £50m+ would be suicidal for us

    What about Hanley at DM

    I think that could be as successful as playing Stephen Whittaker in midfield

    Young fogeys

    If you compare it to Germany and their bundesliga 2 sides many of those players are that sort of age, look at Zimmerman he was 24 I think when we signed him, and it seems quite common for players of tgat are to be in the 2nd teams

    Danny Mills

    Danny Mills loves Leeds, criticising the Newcastle fans for being deluded and living in the past lol

    Sheffield United

    To be fair, you can't argue with wilders success with mostly brits. Having said that, the way they play could result in lots of pens and res cards next season,they tend to be strong and aggressive so VAR could be a big factor for them

    Andy Hughes

    Neil Emblem wasn't far behind.

    Is VAR such a good idea?

    That's the thing. I don't think anyone can argue that VAR is getting 99.9% right, but at what cost?It's nice winning games,lifting trophies, but it's the moments us as fans remember, not the end result. That feeling of pukkis winner v Millwall Vrancic v sheff wed, Klose v ipswich, Jackson v derby, you can't get that feeling of a total explosion of emotion anywhere. VAR Dilutes that feeling because it adds doubt,it delays the decision. I would rather keep football as a human game with all the human errors and human emotion than a robotic game

    New home kit...

    I think it looks great at first look...maybe better couples with green shirts and not jeans like most of us wear but I really like it

    Callum Robinson

    According to reports on Twitter we have bid £6m for Callum Robinson from Preston. Can't say i know to much about him, to be honest,

    Bet they "understand"

    Women’s World Cup

    Presumably you don't watch it then, so your argument is invalid as you can't have any idea what women's football is like so your opinion is based on assumption.

    'Baptism of Fire' v 'Eased in Gently'

    It shouldn't really matter over a season but I tend to think it's more important who your final games are against. Psychologically at least if you finish with easier games the pressure should be lower throughout the season.
  22. glory.win or die.


    VAR is terrible for football. Great for the TV and their viewers but it just seems to be draining the life out of football as I love it. Ask yourself which moments of last season did you enjoy most,was it's the equaliser v forest, the equaliser then winner v Millwall, Vrancic v sheff wed? Imagine them with VAR, would you still celebrate to wildly knowing VAR could find a reason to disallow it? Yes I want wins, i want promotions, I want to trophies but they are just the rewards of success, I go to football to experience that moment of ecstasy that only football gives u, which you can't compare to any other sport, any other thing. If VAR takes away that "moment" I'm not sure it's worth it.

    Unless they offer a ridiculous amount, or Pukki pushes for a move, which seems highly unlikely given his character and words from last season, I can not see this happening. His last chance to prove/test himself in the best league in the world Hes happy and comfortable here We already need a prem quality striker so to sell pukki will mean we are likely to have to spend £40m on strikers or hope we find 2 unknowns who happen to be prem quality.

    Webber man of integrity

    Webber is going to walk out on us eventually, whether he remains for 1 season or 10, when he leaves he will be criticised by many and called Judas and greedy, but he's just ambitious. In regards to leaving Huddersfield, he was given the chance to work with his wife, so was just as much a family decision I think. And Wagner walked out on Huddersfield too, at least Webber left them at the top, not bottom.

    New signing?

    Seems unlikely but this site reckon we have made our first signing although the price makes it seem unlikely to me https://t.co/lwlQcQkoWa
