  1. Everyone's entitled to their opinion; even wildly incorrect ones, like his. Last season was the first season my son was interested in football, living 200+ miles from Norwich, it was not a foregone conclusion that he would support City (despite my suggestions). Having watched pretty much all of our games with me and going to a few away games, he became hooked on City (and has convinced most of his class to also support us). I 100% have Farke and his style of play to thank for that. I would not change last season for anything, it was the best season I have ever witnessed, even the UEFA cup season when I was starting to get interested in football as a boy. (Edit - I forgot my point) - if that means we are underwhelming this season and try again next, it was definitely worth it.

    Rupp and Duda

    So do I. Unfortunately, he is massively more mobile than Trybull - who in virtually every aspect other than the physical is a better CDM - Rupp however is at least as mobile but better with the ball and is why I would pick him in that position.

    Rupp and Duda

    I agree but for different reasons! I woudn't play Tettey either but I think he is physically but not technically able. He can run around, shield the defence, tackle etc but if the other team lets him have the ball, he won't do anything with it. Our system relies on all players being technically very good with the ball and able to make progressive passes; Tettey may %wise be OK at passing but they are always nothing passes that I could make. I want to see a central midfield comprised of Rupp or Trybull alongside Vrancic or McClean (or dare I say Leitner!). The three behind Pukki should be Cantwell, Duda and Buendia but Hernandez given >15 minutes at the end, against tiring legs.
  4. So that he can come back as a different alias and spout the same rubbish and you ban that account, for him to start again and repeat to infinity? I'd rather know which alias' opinion is invalid and who I can completely ignore, without actually having to read it to find out.

    Agreed. I've been a critic of Hanley for a while but he's proving me wrong. Played very well since he came back into the team.

    Which time?! Generally playing well, but if he was cooler with the ball...

    Isn't everything everyone writes on here an opinion? Also, how exactly does the stats recognise the times that he doesn't track back; I assume you've noticed that? This is not an attack on him, I just think we cannot afford a strop, to give Salah / Mane / Ox / Firminho a free run at our full back and he is a risk in that respect.

    Whilst Emi is our best player in my opinion, he is too likely to throw a strop, roll around on the floor or just give up chasing back when we lose it. Whilst annoying against most teams, it is offset by his attacking ability, against Liverpool, I can understand Farke not starting him, as they are likely to be attacking us... a lot.

    Because despite what both our manager and the player himself says, people seem to think they know better and Godfrey should be played in midfield...
  10. Whilst I agree with you all. You are giving him what he wants by talking about / reacting to him (as I am now). By far the best way to deal with him is to entirely ignore everything he says, as it is not worth anyone's time.

    Silly question....

    Probably, but isn't that OK? It's their choice. It's the way in all walks of life, you give priority to the thing which will likely give you the best return.

    This. I don't care about this or what is favourite colour is either. I'm not sure why it is news about someones preferences in their personal life.

    Some people are never as happy as when they are unhappy and complaining about something... anything. As has been said, they will always want more "why aren't we Bournemouth" turns into "why aren't we Newcastle" turns into "why aren't we Leicester", turns into "why aren't we Man City" when (if) each of the former materialises. I'm happy with our club. Am I gutted when we lose? Yes. Will I also be gutted when we (in all likelihood) get relegated? Definitely. I'd have liked to spend some more to 'give the boys a hand' this season, but I trust the judgement of the current leadership, as they haven't done too badly so far. I like our philosophy, our entertaining style and our manager's class. I'm more proud of that than I would be finishing 4th bottom or spending x million on a player.
  14. Eddie Howe. His face is so smug.
  15. My prediction is not a single prediction in this thread will happen, ever, let alone within 20 years.

    Genuinely hate to say it

    Tettey, Zimmerman and Hanley are not good enough / comfortable enough on the ball and all teams we face are happy to let them have it as they know they won't do anything useful with it. If we are to continue to build from the back, we need everyone who can pass at a higher standard, these cannot. Tettey always takes too long on the ball, his passes generally require the receiving player to break stride / adjust for the slightly off pass and it allows the opposition to get set. Fine margins. I mean, we created enough chances to win yesterday, but if we'd had someone better with the ball instead of Tettey, we'd have created more. We need someone who can play defensively like Tettey who can also pass - essentially Yaya Toure 5 years ago. Anyone got a spare 50 million?

    Match thread - Newcastle

    Yes, it is entirely as black and white as that. Farke has worked miracles, has been brilliant and therefore we can't point out what we consider to be his mistakes. Nobody is disputing how good he has been for us, but he continues to make little to no impact with any substitution, mostly, because they come on in injury time. Cantwell was largely ineffective, so the Emi change was like for like. Rupp, Duda, Tettey were all also largely ineffective, who knows what Vrancic would have been if he'd had more than 10 seconds on the pitch...

    1 sub before the 85th minute in a game we have to win?

    How are Newcastle not in the bottom three? I'd genuinely rather go down playing football than stay up and have to watch this every week. I know that will be in the minority but I want to be entertained.

    Why do the commentators keep going on about Danny Rose being available to Newcastle? A bit of a cr*p left back available on the bench, brilliant.

    Match thread - Newcastle

    I don't disagree but his 'tackle' (foul) was definitely a good decision to stop the break. It's traditionally what we've not done enough of. I'd give him 10 - 15 minutes of the second half and take him off then if he hasn't improved.

    If we still need a goal and Vrancic and Buendia are still on the bench on 75 minutes, I think I may explode.
