  1. 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.
  2. "Not only do you get me but also Uncle Harry as finance director!"
  3. Just for a laugh I was wondering what the new manager might say on appointment. Or perhaps what not to say?
  4. Could see him doing well there. As far as our new manager / coach appointment goes, I'd rather the take their time and get it right. Who's the best for the job? No idea at all
  5. Almost certainly, it's what new managers do, and if he wants the gig it better be a decent amount.
  6. Ha ha. I doubt anyone gives them so much as a second thought now a days. They have made themselves irrelevant and other than Norwoods I couldn't name any of their team
  7. He should have just finished that 'Farke out' banner message we saw on here. It was quite clear his initial dismissal plan was to use the classic medium of 'dirty bed sheet messages from the stands' but obviously bottle it half way through the game yesterday. Instead he did it the cowards way, to his face, after careful thought and with respect. Not a good look for a progressive DoF
  8. Rubbish, and I suspect you know it. There will be a long list of managers/former managers out there with a real interest in us. Can't be bothered to go through all the reasons why, but they are obvious
  9. The whistle went and he seemed to get very agitated with something/someone. TK then kind of held him back. It was brief but a bit strange, did anyone else see it? In any case when you properly look at DF's record in the PL, despite him being a very likable and decent man, it is poor and gave the direct impression history would have repeated itself, in that we would get relegated if he had stayed
  10. watching the way Max Aarons behaved at the end of the game (with Tim Krull holding him back and calming him down), I wonder if the players knew what was on the cards. Top man (DF) but can see the reasons why.
  11. It was quite clear EB wanted to leave, and I understand the reasons behind that. However, with the added benefit of hindsight I wonder if we would have been better to have played hardball with him and have him throwing an initial strop but coming back into the team sometime later? After all, if this had been only his first outing since the start of the campaign I suspect we would have had that creativity we needed out there.
  12. Not having a great game by the looks of it. Fingers crossed chelsea decide to take it easy second half or we are going to be seriously embarrassed. There has to be a change, give them 10 mins then bring on some shear pace
  13. Yes, and I'm still waiting in the car park. Get yourself out here ya wimp.....
  14. Without trying to sound too optimistic and before anyone else grabs it, I'm saying 84 as I feel we will only draw against chelsea
  15. Agreed. However, last few minutes of a game, it's 0-0, we desperately need the points and we get a corner (yesterday for example). Who would you want from our team in their goal area challenging for that ball? A misfiring 21yr old, new striker likely to come good, fast player. Or our 31 year old international not known for heading the ball? Or our tough, unconventional, gnarly and fearless striker, late 20s, well built battler? I for one do not see Hugill as the answer to our woes long term, but there are points when we just need that type of player at that type of moment. Yesterday was one.
  16. Needs must I suppose. Is there another PL first team he would get into? I'm not so sure and possibly he may have benefitted from a season in the Champs. On a side not PLM had his best game in the centre yesterday.
  17. Having watched (i.e present at most matches) all our games this season thus far, I can assure you all we are very slowly turning this situation around (Watford second half aside) into a better performing, point scoring team. HOWEVER, this huge gigantic container ship (imagine we are in the Suez) named Norwich City is turning at a very very slow pace and the real question is, are we turning it around quick enough to not get too cut off. Or are we just going to chug along for the next two-three months with the odd inspiring performance, with the hint of better times to come? That, my fellow canaries supporters is the dilemma for me. The answer?.........................Who knows
  18. If after this news, there was a better time to play Brighton at home this season, I'm not sure when that would be. Fingers crossed we can capitalise on it.
  19. Doubt it will be too difficult for the prospective new owners to 'lose Steve Bruce' if they need to.............
  20. Hi Phil, I hope your specialisation is not in Architectural Engineering? Not sure how, by closing the 'snake pit will allow a full extension of the city stand. But there again my knowledge on such matters is limited.
  21. Ha, ha. Absolutely. My apologies, I understand your plight.
  22. If you really can't see any positives in a 3rd Div teams loss to Accrington Stanley, I can see your point. If however, you're talking about a PL team fighting to get a point away at a tough physical place like Turf Moore against a PL side desperate for points, then you are wide of the mark. Which one is it?
