    We’ll have to put up with this kind of nonsense all the time.

    I mean look at it. It’s the worst kind of emptiness, an utterly meaningless version of football. We’ll become a freak show, a circus, with half a million Chelsea fans from around the world thinking they somehow own us, having an opinion on the exact position Billy Bloody Gilmour should play. Or why - insert name of random identikit expensive teenager - will be an upgrade on Pukki.

    If, as looks likely, it is Lampard, it will be an abandonment of our identity, an acceptance that we’ve run out of ideas, that in the end survival trumped the attempt to do things differently, with a distinctiveness and a texture that was Norwich, that had a kind of meaning that exceeded just being a football club

    Let’s just rewind and bring Daniel Farke back, so that we can sit around and talk about our topics, our defensive and offensive behaviours, our living room, about the togetherness of the lads, about how winning isn’t everything, and how the name on the front of the shirt is more important than the name on the back. 

    Call me unambitious, but I’d rather be relegated than put up with this… 


    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.

    My understanding is that it was always Lampard.

    (I also feel confident that the club will be sold in the future and the club will not be gifted to Tom. But that’s for another day. So the future is rosy… or at least we are actually trying to be a PL club going forward rather than a Top 26 club. That philosophy is now dead. Webber is staying and super motivated.)

    I really hope so

    We have delusions of grandeur?  That’s rich, considering some of the players they seemed to think they’d be getting in the summer.  I think most of us know precisely where we are in the football world…they still seem to think it’s the late 70s/early 80s and that everyone loves them as their ‘second team’

    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

    So what should Webber have done?

    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

    The self funding model will put off most decent managers

    we will either get a young unknown manager or a knackered old timer looking for a final pay off

    delia out stinking rich Chinese owner in 

    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

    How did Max react   I missed that?

    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

  7. 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.

    Hugill wouldn't have been quick enough to create the goalkeeper error chance on Saturday. 

    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.

  9. 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

    How will they 'lose' Bruce? He's hardly likely to resign with a potential payoff available. I can't think he'll be top of any other Premier League club's list to get in.

    I'm amazed he's still manager there.

    Doubt it will be too difficult for the prospective new owners to 'lose Steve Bruce' if they need to.............😐

    Can I politely request that people don’t quote “Big” Vince? I’ve got him blocked but when he’s quoted I unfortunately can’t avoid his drivel and my already high blood pressure climbs another notch. 


    Ha, ha. Absolutely.

    My apologies, I understand your plight.

    It was another dismal performance against another dismal team. It’s nothing more the a piece of tissue paper trying to cover a crack as wide as a valley. 

    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?
