  1. He is top class and it will be essential he stays fit for us if we have a sniff at staying up (which we do). In my opinion he looks captain material, quite vocal, tough and hell of a player
  2. Nice free kick onto Kenny Head.
  3. ****! I briefly glanced at it a few times, not realising Howson was in the team, otherwise I'd have taken a bit more interest.
  4. Now you mention it, I can't see a single person in that picture who is actually looking at their phones wearing a city scarf /hat etc. I also suspect if you took a photo of that area the following game there would be a number of new faces. Bl00dy plastics
  5. I think a total of 4 points only in the next six games will seal our fate, 6 is an absolute minimum. This is the moment for us and four of those games are ones we can take points from. It's now or never for me
  6. Looking at the next 6 PL games for us (Crystal P, Man City and Brentford at home, Liverpool, Saints and Leeds away) it gives us a great chance to build on the momentum we have certainly begun and really set our stall out. However, I think it is a must for 3 points next Wednesday then at least two competitive games against the top two before we look at lower table teams again Other than the top two the rest are within 9 points and 5 places of us at this moment so, these 6 games are pivotal for us and a great run could swing it in our favour. I feel this next group of 6 games will determine our chances of survival. After these there are 9 left Points total? I'm hoping for minimum of 9, but would take 6 (leaving us at 22-25 points) This competition is not lost yet
  7. This is massively over the top. Other than a few half wits the vast majority on here (myself included) and at CR have wanted Todd to do well for us and been very patient, given the dire circumstance the club have been in. This is of course due to the rumours around personal/family issues. 'Hounded out' by the CR crowd or pink un posters is utter ballax and by suggesting it doesn't help his case. Finally, if you are basing your comments on idiots who put comments on other social media platforms then god help you. Good luck to him but it needs resolving and this may just be the way.
  8. Can't remember it myself for some reason but why on earth would you not take someone like Chris Sutton when in the championship and at that stage is beyond me. Would have been superb to see him back in our shirt
  9. I always thought it was 22,000 season ticket holders. In any case, I've always felt that a bond type affair whereby you invest and have a chance of securing a seat in the new stand when it opens if you are not already a ST holder or indeed get a certain % return if you were, would work. The last bond was a big success. If the club then market it well and limit the season tickets to say 25/26k maximum at a decent price, they would sell. Leaving 3-4k for larger away followings and the rest for members, casuals and corporates. Couldn't see why achieving 30-35k a game is not possible
  10. Not a penalty in a million years. In fact rather than enforcing it being a possible penalty in slow motion reply (which often happens), the slow replays show the attacker missed the ball due to it's speed and then headed for the keeper. Enforcing the belief it was not a pen The blame lies at the door of the VAR official. He would have had time and lack of pressure to make the right decision. He failed. Why he failed is a mystery indeed. Lucky Liverpool
  11. Not if they use the same var set up from the palace v liverpool game Disgusting decision to award a penalty
  12. I would, if I were paid enough (and had a clear run out of the door). However, I can't speak Japanese, so that's me out
  13. I was going to start a thread highlighting exactly the same. He is a colossus for us at times and a very cleaver player in a very unforgiving league. Loved the palm off on one of their winging players as well. Fingers crossed he stays fit
  14. Good post. I'm up and hungover but happy. Great result and phenomenal support by our lot at Vicarage Road.
  15. I do understand your point, to a degree. I'm not sure I would describe it as a worldie (though my boy does). However, he has put himself in there and kept going the whole game. That goal came from effort, effort and effort. And for that alone I thought it was beautifully executed.
  16. The only good thing about this thread was learning you can get a 'Redhead Car wash.' My car is bleeding filthy!
  17. Dean Smith knows this area of the league and has 'battle hardened' in his dna. I thought it was a good appointment at the time (getting both of them in) and we are reaping the benefits of it, at last
  18. If he carries on playing like that in midfield with his athleticism and aggression and add in a goal or two along the way, not only will he become a big asset for us he will, because of his enthusiasm and endeavour, become a fans favourite. Very quickly
  19. I'm not ( ) but what I am related to is the thought of a fellow canary trying his hardest to perform for us. And whilst it is clearly fashionable to stick the boot into NCFC, I will not and never bow to those di(kheads. Having supported us since the mid 70's these evenings to me are precious. One or two of our support need to look at the bigger picture OTBC
  20. He's not crap (whatever that is compared to) and that description of a young man who has worked his way up to a team like our is offensive. He is a midfielder in a PL team. On top of that, he is a is a midfielder in OUR team. I suspect that DS has a much higher opinion of him than you do and that is ALL THAT MATTERS
  21. I would imaging that SW knows that a typical fan base has at least 50% who have never played the game in any sense and 95% who have never played for a recognised league team. He probably does know better, but has well known limitations we have to keep to. OTBC
