    Although it was before the January transfer window existed, didn’t Ashley ward have a mysterious injury, which prevented him from playing a game for us & was then suddenly (but expected) sold to Derby for £1 million?

    Not sure. From recollection I think the transfer was sudden and out of the blue so not sure if there was time to worryvabout injuries,because our finances were fecked. Didn't we sell him and Jon Newsome on same day in desperation?

    Officially, yes. But the 'tapping up' rule hasn't been enforced for many years, and clubs will always approach a player via their agent in the first instance. 

    I think the last club to make a complaint about tapping up was Southampton when they were a bit pissed off with Liverpool's aggressive approaches for van Dijk. Things got resolved in the end when they accepted a bid...

    Last case I recall was the Colchester chairman when we nicked Lambert lol

  3. In fairness to him he has been a goal threat at times, I think as is the case for years, he's a central/10 player that we play out widely.  Even Wessi wasn't great when played out wide.

    But that's the main issue. We don't play players in their best position. Gibbs up front? Nunez or Sara often the deeper midfield, at times Nunez was the deepest defender with the centre backs wide on the half way line.

    And Barnes..he's a passenger. I'm not sure we have ever played the ball to him to hold up with his strength and lay off to oon rushing attackers. We cross in hope not aiming for him. He doesn't even press tge GK or defenders now.

    We need a vision and philosophy. A coach to deliver that philosophy and players to fit within that set up

    Maybe I'm remembering this incorrectly, but I thought it was Ronaldinho? 

    Also, the syllables work better with Ronaldinho.

    I was still quite young at the time so could be wrong/singing whatever the hell I wanted.

    I remember it as Ronaldinho too.. needs the 5 syllables to fit I think

    I think he's a poor manager. People are forgetting how much support he had at Derby and his team were completely outdone by Farke and his merry misfits during that season.

    They beat us at Carrow road......with the help of a floodlight perhaps 

  6.                               Long   

                 Duffy      Gibson     Warner

    Stacey                                          Giannoulis

                       Forshaw  McClean





    As solid as possible centrally. Wingback offering width with Nunez and Sara concentrating on unlocking defences..

  7. Strange one. 

    Although I think I'd rather try Springett down the middle as a striker over Hwang.

    We were promised we would be one of the fittest teams but I can't remember the last time we finished a game strongly.. 

    I also don't understand why whenvwe are winning we seem to actively shut up shop with 30mins left and set up to defend and attack on the break when the one thing we can't do is shut up shop and defend

    Leeds take the lead and then defend deep and we can't create any chances. We defend deep and they run though us easily

    That is the most worrying thing most clubs have them why we are different ,

    it seems a bit like that at the moment ,

    we all were excited thinking this season we will get a sitting CDM nothing 

    then we all were crying out for a replacement for Sarge we get Hwang not nothing but close to it ,


    I think we can cope without a cdm when we have sargent and Barnes defending from the front and forcing the opposition back. Without them teams just run through us. Need at least forshaw next game. Maybe even Forshaw gibbs and McClean anchoring the centre with idah up front alone and Sara Rowe in support

    I write this as a huge MB fan, and think he's the best NCFC journo, but is there anyone who knows:

    1) What other areas he's now covering for the Athletic.

    2) How often he will attend Norwich games.

    3) How often he will produce any kind of content (articles/podcasts) for ncfc, or is it just a 'when I have time' type of thing?

    It's been 2 weeks since the last ncfc article (three games have passed since then) and the few pieces produced over the summer were minimal. 

    Any info would be great so I can set my expectations!
