  1. Darren Kenton on Warner https://insidefutbol.com/2023/09/28/i-know-its-a-massive-statement-former-norwich-star-makes-bold-claim-on-canaries-talent/622201/
  2. Sainz and Lima both looked like top players last night but not strikers. Lima has fantastic midfield skills and Sainz is more of a wide player. Both have a fantastic shot so maybe will contribute goals.
  3. Thanks very much Nuff Said. Hope we both enjoy watching the match today
  4. Has anyone used the free Proton VPN along with the canaries.tv ifollow £10 per game to know whether it works in the UK?
  5. Was Lima our no 8? - looked a fantastic player. Welch also looked good apart from giving away the penalty. In fact a lot of our players did well - must be a few gems there for the future.
  6. Aren't we now more suited for a game in awful weather having more physical players and more direct style? Compared with Leicester who are presumably more Guardiola style? 2-1 to us
  7. And he was a player with us in the early 80's
  8. According to Sporting Life our guy is one of the subs
  9. I watched most of the match. Idah generally played very well against some top centre backs. He took his penalty really well. The big question marks for me were over the two occasions when he laid the ball off to Ogbene to take a shot at goal and both shots were blocked. On both occasions, I wondered if a more confident (selfish?) striker would have taken a shot themselves - it looked to me as though Idah was in a good enough position to do so. Of course, if Ogbene had scored then we would have praised Idah for the assist. Duffy seemed to be calling the shots as captain - constantly directing other players. He also made some strong challenges to stop Dutch attacks and generally looked a formidable defender. On the down side, as paddycanary said, it seems he played the goalscorers onside for both Dutch goals. Good that both players now have six days off before the Stoke game - they must both have been exhausted. Rare for Idah to play a full 90 minutes +
  10. Yes, a fantastic article. All my best wishes Kathy. Thanks for writing it and thanks to Parma for the link.
  11. Accrington Stanley winning 1-0 at half time. My new second favourite team! Shipley booked in 37th minute but him and Hills helping keep a clean sheet so far! great start for the youngsters!
  12. I'd been surprised that Warner was listed in the u-21's on the club website rather than the first team but obviously because Tomkinson is just ahead of him in the plans and is due back sooner than first thought. Wonder if he will go out on loan now or whether we will hold him back in case we have another CB injury crisis.
  13. Disappointed that none of our younger players from the academy are in the team. No Gibbs, Rowe, Omobamidele.... But should be a good enough team in the Champs
  14. I enjoyed it. Made me hope we can keep him for a couple more seasons.
  15. Another thing about the Hayden loan is that he wasn't the only CDM we were after last summer. We agreed a fee for Ismael Kone from CF Montreal last July but couldn't agree terms with the player. It seemed we immediately went in for Nunez who of course is a very different player. I saw a bit of Kone in the World Cup when he came on as a sub for Canada - he looked okay but nothing special (as is often the way with CDMs!). He then moved to Watford in the January window and I see he played 16 times for them but I can't remember noticing him in any games I watched. Anybody know more about how he's done and whether he would have been a good fit for us? I presume the idea was that Hayden would be the main man in CDM with Kone learning from him and developing last season - and filling in for him if Hayden was injured!!! I wonder if Webber now wishes he'd have gone after another young CDM (they must have a list of them) instead of Nunez. Nunez may well turn into an important player for us but wasn't what was needed last season.
  16. I preferred paying the club direct via Canaries TV. Not so keen on paying Sky.
  17. I saw a little bit of last week's u-21 match when he played and was struck by the fact that he looked a fair bit slimmer so maybe he's already sorting himself out. He applied himself well from what I saw of the match but didn't do anything magical
  18. Pete, do you know why he hasn't been playing recently? He seemed to do very well in his first couple of games with Stevenage and once in the team I would have expected him to stay there.
  19. Did we replace Martin with Hanley?
  20. I enjoyed him as co-commentator watching on i-follow
  21. I think Dean Smith said when we got Ramsey on loan that it was connected with Rowe's initial injury being likely to keep him out for a few months. Rowe is now nearing fitness (after a second injury) so better to have our own player involved??
  22. Tomkinson came on for the second half for Stevenage and from the brief highlights made two important contributions - blocking a goal-bound shot and then conceding a penalty - I thought it was very harsh decision by the ref - looked a great tackle to me https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/av/football/64348744
