  1. Yes. However, we were below our recent best all over the park
  2. We didn't pass the ball around with any pace on it and were slow to switch or move it, especially compared to how we have been since he came in. Disappointing. And secondly, I'm struggling to understand how we didn't get a penalty first half? Unfortunately, I'm not sure we deserved much more than a draw
  3. Not that I'm aware, I was being facetious. He will be desperate for a result though, so who knows what he may stoop to.
  4. Mumba is tearing them a new one this first half, they can't get near him
  5. They will attempt to absolutly muller us initially and EH will have pulled out all the stops to make this as difficult for us as he can (temporary changing room, no hot water, light failure etc etc ). However, IF we can keep them out for the first 20-25 minutes we may have a chance. A tight, hard won win for us. I fact as manager of Villa, he has faced them twice this year winning in August at VP and drawing up there in March.
  6. Utter, utter rubbish. He put in a superb performance and was rightly applauded for it.
  7. A confident DS led Norwich will give them a game, have no doubt. If we had won today (which we could and should have done) I would have put hard earned cash on us winning up there as well. Bring on Tuesday
  8. Yes a definitely opportunistic appointment. SW is a straight talking chap and if he says he saw the chance once he knew DS was available, then any other probable was probably pushed down the pecking order immediately, despite what they may say. Good appointment and I can see him being a city favourite.
  9. There were also a lot of impressed city fans, me being one of them. I felt that S Webber saw the sacking of DS felt he had chance to get a good manager with a point to prove. And so far it appears to be the case. OTBC
  10. Rupp, McLean and Rashica all played superb today and anyone of those could have been MOTM for me. I have always like Rupp, a neat, tidy and efficient footballer who does a job and in my humble opinion is quite underated. Chap next to me today asked what Mclean brings to the party. He saw what it was, in bucket loads by the end.
  11. The simple truth is that if he comes back and plays like we have seen him do so before, then he is a genuine PL quality standard player and for that reason I am delighted he is finally on the verge of full first team training.
  12. He (Gilmour) will have his chance now so lets hope he delivers for us. Pukki? could be a good season for him after all.
  13. I also see un on 16-18 points. However, I also see us gaining a bit of momentum in the new year if we can build on the new start. I'd rather go to CR expecting a good performance such as yesterdays second half rather than hoping to not be too far adrift come 80 minutes.
  14. Spot on. I believe it's one of the only badges without a the team or initials name on it as well. It stands out
  15. I'd imagine, if we do see a good performance the atmosphere will be a notable change at the end of the match from the last few home games.
  16. They should have been made to go by public transport until they won a game this season. Bonding and real world problems may have galvanised them a bit more. Especially if they had to stand up on the train, all the way back from the smoke. No win no seat policy.
  17. That is the point. Imagine the absolute horror if stuck on a luxury coach for two hours with nothing but comfortable seats, drinks, food, toilets and wifi galore.
  18. I wouldn't. I'd rather have cr4p like the sun spews , fawning over a FL inspired Norwich city, than continue with the pitiful attitude towards us from the media / pundits where we find ourselves now. It is tedious, not welcome and bordering on embarrassing. Lampard (if it is him) will be 100% determined to prove various people wrong immediately and it is very likely we would get the 'new manager bounce' from him. Possibly enough to get us to January and change a few personnel. We needed change and as much as I liked DF, it was time to go. Change of coach, possibly more positive from the media and it might just help our cause. We need new investment as well, that's for sure, but that is another thread discussion.
  19. "Not only do you get me but also Uncle Harry as finance director!"
  20. Just for a laugh I was wondering what the new manager might say on appointment. Or perhaps what not to say?
