  1. Someone must be waiting in the wings to take over......................Frank Lampard?
  2. Good on them I say. Certainly don't hate them at all. Bit of a breath of fresh air and wish we could have matched them results wise this season
  3. If the first team sheet back in the championship has a Hanley/Gibson centre back pairing and you know who still in midfield, we will probably win the league again
  4. Norwich City have a 1pc chance of staying in the Premier League, according to one football think tank. FiveThirtyEight's latest statistical modelling paints a gloomy picture with Dean Smith and his squad heading back to the Championship. It hardly needs the number crunchers to tell any City fan what they have seen unfold this season is a continuation of a depressing theme from the last time they were in amongst the high rollers. Albeit the predicted 24 point finishing haul in that analysis would be three more than the abject offering in the 'Project Restart' period under Daniel Farke. Are they right? How many points do you see City harvesting from the final nine league games that start with a trip to Brighton on April 2?
  5. I like it. Question 2: Where do you see yourself in 5 games time? Question 3: If 3 people were waiting for a kidney transplant and one became available, pick from these 3 who would receive it and why.........
  6. It would be interesting to see what level of budget he gets if relegated. I suspect quiet a few will have to be off loaded as part of it
  7. Actually I have no real fear of being back in the champs with this squad (minus the loans). There is no question a few need to move on but we have a decent enough spine and a few additions we should be able to compete quite well.
  8. Other than the penalty that the officials had enough margin to overturn, everyone of those points you mention I 100% agree with. I can understand the pressure from the crowd but it's small things such as the lineo instantly putting his flag up as soon as it looks remotely like an offside against us, yet is happy to let their first goal stand, despite the FACT that the offside player influenced ply by drawing in Gibson who would have otherwise been available to challenge for the final ball
  9. Yep, spot on. However, he is (in my humble opinion) an excellent player for us and it's rare he has a poor game. Just need a few others to up their game and bring something to the party. Apparently he has covid but without any symptoms
  10. Numerous season ticket holders missing around where we sit. Not really surprised as they probably expected a thrashing, as I did after the first two goals
  11. Okay, state the expected timings of first the old favourite City chant of 'we've got a super cook, you've got a russian crook,' and the Navel Gazers'FC (formally known as chelsea FC) reply of a Roman Abramovich supporting ditty? Me? Official minute 4 on the clock, for the first and 30 seconds later, the travelling NGFC support will reply. Life must be hard without the soft caressing, comforting hands of a billionaire, putin supporting russion oligarch to guide and pay for your success? How will they cope? Will no one think of poor NGFC ?
  12. Unfortunately, by the time chelsea finish with us it will be more of the scorched earth variety, not a simple fire!
  13. Zimmermann back at CB would be a good decision. Why not and what do we have to lose?
  14. Spot on. Why do we not have a VAR type committee to oversee dives and ward retrospective punishment. He dived for it by slowing down and leaving his leg in. F%$£C)ng fumin
  15. Yes saw that, though BW did well to change it round quickly
  16. just on or inside their half and we are losing, that we constantly play it sideways, instead of into the box for a chance? Every single time even when we are trying to get back into the game. At least twice today whilst losing, we made 10 passes then hurriedly passed it back to TK or a defender just to hoof it forward ! So frustrating.
  17. I suspect if we struggle over the next few games and survival looks unlikely the waiting list will dissipate and reduce quicker than a Russian oligarchs assets in the west. We purchased our first two a number of years ago when the club had just been relegated, and there had been a waiting list prior to that.
  18. I would like to see, Rowe start on the left, Ra****za up top and Sarge on the right. Rupp in the middle and Krul to start
  19. Think he showed a lack of respect, often breaking into giggles after disparaging comments. Unprofessional, but that's to be expected
  20. Seems to have wound his neck in a bit now
