  1. Sinani has been in the books for a while, must be on healthy wages unless there are targets written into it. If we can get some / any money from his sale, it's a good idea.
  2. Is he a striker that can play on the wing? Or a winger that can play as a striker?
  3. Better than the prank someone pulled on Lineker live on telly, because this was not a prank and every time something naturally happens like this it makes me chuckle
  4. On paper it did. In reality, everything was wrong from the 1st phonecall from Stew to Smith. It stank the place up. Tell you what, on some level I respect the fans that went to watch live, home/away and booed Smith and the players without malice or nastiness - sometimes it's got to be like that to force a change, but TBH it should be like that for any coach who doesn't engage with the fans and the way we like to see our team play. I always thought City does not ever conform to "generic" coaches, they need to have something about them, but Farke ruined us. He set our standard. From now on, anyone we recruit as a manager has to have some elements of that team play, strategy and intensity AND connect with the fans. We measure them up to the standard - if they don't fit, they go. Wagner was destined for this. I doubted as well as many others.The doubt is still there, but going in the other way - I doubt he will not succeed with us, it's a matter of time.
  5. Few months back, folk were saying the same, or worse, about Sargent. Does Przemek deserve an opportunity under Wagner?
  6. Maybe there is a case to convert Giannoulis into a winger? In attack he seems to be one of our best performers, it's defensively that he falls short time and time again
  7. Tzolis needs a chance. And we need him. Wagner will work him out.
  8. If he can't perform in the Chumps, why the hell would we play him on the PL? His attitude has not earned it in the slightest, I'd rather youngsters get that chance ahead of Milot.
  9. You know about canaries in coalmines, right? This is a device where they would try and resuscitate the birds before they died. There is a little oxygen tank at the top. A canary resuscitator. After finding this pic online, I thought it was apt to use it here
  10. Must have been that fortified wine. Mayor's vintage.
  11. He was 100% the wrong appointment by Stew. Never a good fit for us. I daresay very few managers fit Norwich City, and Wagner fits. Give Deano a break, then wish him well at a Rotherham, Stoke, etc. He'll pick himself up from there, he may not be the best coach in the world but not the worst either, and do well at a club with a project that suits him.
  12. Brings me back to Stew and his "don't listen to the noise" comment. I know he said this in response to fan comments on social media but my impression is that in-house communication has declined massively the last 2-3 years.
  13. Looks like Wagner is indeed cut from the same cloth as Klopp! Farke was class at Champ level, but a bit of 'mental' is good in my book!
  14. ****, can't remember when we last had a 4-4-2. Was it a Lambert formation?
  15. A combination of the above is my bet. Maybe they peaked that season, and should have left to improve elsewhere, with new players brought in or youngsters promoted from within to refresh the squad. Every season a club will need 3-4 new faces, lest the ones in get too comfy. But instead most of them stagnated. Progress is never linear. Where we are now, I'd rather we stay in the Championship for one season so that we can rebuild properly. It will be painful, but necessary. I still want us to get promoted BUT with a solid base to work from. If this means most players have to leave us then so be it.
  16. Pukki barely had a sniff of the ball the whole game. Blackburn did their homework.. Hanley did not.
  17. Hopefully he'll also have the sense to connect with fans like Klopp does, it does not need to be a Farke wave but we need to see he - and by extension the squad - cares.
  18. Hmm. How much do you think Sargent is worth at this moment?
  19. He should stay as interim head coach. Still has to earn the upgrade. As other posts say above, making Russell the "default" is lazy, even for NCFC. Actually, scratch that - specially for us. Same for the players too, complacency is a curse.
  20. I think Sara is the more aggressive of the two, both defending and attacking.. Nunez to me seems the kind of player that needs to know what his teammates are doing/will do to knit play effectively.
