  1. its about the system as much as lack of striker. Under Lambert we would have taken off Surnham for Kane. Changed the formation and gone for the win. Houghton keeps the same system, and keeps it tight. Without a pouches this system will be tough. Instead of winning or losing 3 2 we will see many 1 1s.
  2. If we don''t claim 2nd place I hope Swansea do. Partly because they play attractive football but mainly because they are the one team who are set up perfectly to beat the diamond. Quick wingers, attacking fullbacks, two holding centre mids who can spread it wide. We were very lucky to beat them at home and they deserved the win at theirs.
  3. I feel sorry for Steve Tilson. When Peter Grant was shown the Carrow Road exit the Board approached Southend about bringing Tilson in. Tilson was really keen on coming. Southend refused and at that time we didnt have such a cut-throat Chief Exec so we didnt pursue it, and got in Roder. Soundend were then rewlegated, went to administration and Tilson was left with a rubbish squad and quit. As far as Im aware he is not managing a football club. Moral of the stroy is that Lambert did the right thing to leave Col U for us, and it would be right for him to leave us for a Villa.
  4. Askou seems like a nice guy and he did a decent job in League One last year. His heading ability is freaky, he gets in the way but I never thought he stood out as being a class above others in League One. Is Askou the best possible defender we could get? The answer is of course no. Barrett has played in the Champ and the Premiere League, is young and Lambert knows a bit about having scouted him before. If he is better than Askou, and his experience suggests he is, then its right to play him.
  5. For those of us who live outside Norwich WTF is going on? Can we have a link or an explanation of what the EDP story said. Ps 24hr boycott will achieve f-all.
  6. Maybe he wanted to get away from nosey neighbours... or maybe he was just renting and the landlord has decided to sell the property...
  7. Owning Ruddy is better than re-loaning FF. When Lambert came in he said he would try and avoid loans. His hand was forced last year because he needed to get a goalie in quick. Fraser Forster did well for us in League One but he''s no Gordon Banks. He was also unknown until he played for us.
  8. Let us not discount the fact we own him. I would rather have a decent young Keeper who is ours rather than doing another club a favour by improving their player. Foster had some excellent strengths, shot stopping in particular, but he also had some weaknesses. I like the fact Ruddy for such a young goalkeeper has played a lot of games, and he seems to be improving with every step he takes.
  9. Yes. Winning habit and money are both useful. Fulham are still doing alright this year even though they are in the Europa.
  10. We are Norwich. We dont need to worry about what other clubs do. On the ball City.....
  11. Selling Theo to Melbourne Tinnies is a disgrace. They said that none of our stars will leave in Jan. Sack the board!
  12. I don’t like this ‘barging’ mentality. If you pay peanuts you get monkeys. If NCFC mainly buy League 1 and League 2 players they will become a League 1 side.   Our two best ‘bargains’ of recent time have been Earnshaw and Ashton. These were players who came in and did a fantastic job before being sold on for big profits. Lets pay the going rate and get good players.
  13. I started thinking about this last night but then quickly stopped myself. There is a long way to go this season. Lets get promoted first before we start thinking about who is good enough for the Champ.
