    Possible postponement

    The Sunderland call off was on the morning of the game, 9ish if I recall. We’d flown up the day before in very dodgy conditions. Spent the rest of the weekend drinking in Newcastle so wasn’t all bad!

    Norwich v Liverpool

    I wouldn’t be averse to a postponement. If other results went our way, like they did last weekend, that’d give us a little boost physchologically. For what it’s worth, I don’t think it will be called off. It’s looking like 50mph winds which is more or less what it was at Newcastle a couple of weeks ago. I think the postponed Man City match had winds in excess of 80mph?

    The Norwich City Loan XI

    I’m not sure if many of these players are decent? They are all playing in league one or below (or equivalent thereof) and most have had previous loan spells at lower league clubs without doing much. Quote a few of them aren’t that young in footballing terms either, being in their early 20’s (or much later for a few!) That squad as a whole, is basically league 2 at best, with a few players who may go onto bigger and better things.

    Best Norwich city player and why

    Clint Easton for producing the most amazing piece of skill ever seen by the corner flag in front of the lower Barclay block E. Can’t remember who it was against but it was under the floodlights!

    I would bring Lewis back in. Nothing against Byram but we look to have far better balance with Lewis playing, as a natural left back. Byram is always cutting inside or going backwards, which slows down the attacks. We looked great going forward and much more direct vs Burnley with Lewis in the team.
  6. I predict we’ll get stitched up by VAR at some point during the game!

    Press Conference

    I honestly do not believe any of what Farke has said about transfers. If he thinks our squad is adequate enough, what is he saying it’s adequate for? Relegation?

    Jordan Rhodes

    Do we think bringing Rhodes in would give the club a ‘lift’ though? Clearly very well liked by the players, highly thought of by the management, has a great attitude and is a fans favourite (well, amongst most anyway). Football is largely about confidence and having this guy at the club, could improve the mood. I’m sure everyone within the club would see him as a much better option from the bench than what Dennis was, which could give the players more belief when things aren’t going our way. Possibly Farke’s use of subs has been restricted as he doesn’t think he has the right options. We’ve not come back from a losing position at any stage this season and haven’t really looked like doing so, to be fair. Last season we did this countless times as the belief was that we were able to do so. Rhodes coming on was always a big part of that.

    Max Aarons

    If we fail to win tomorrow, let’s face it, we’re down. So we may as well cash in on him at a hugely inflated fee as we will at some point anyway. Byram at RB and Lewis LB for the rest of the season. I fully expect us to win though, leading to a miraculous revival, another season in the Prem and all our key players staying to enjoy the ride!
  10. On a player we’ve been linked with but were never going to pay the asking price.

    Jordan Rhodes

    You’d think £2/3m and it would’ve been a no brainer. Not sure what Weds we’re after but having to play half a season with Dennis as more or less our only back up to Pukki, was very silly.
  12. I’ve heard a rumour that we’re looking to loan to a Championship club for the rest of the season, which I thought was rubbish but did come from within the club. However, the link with the Spanish guy seems to imply that there could be some truth in this. I’m not sure what the thinking behind this is as IMHO, Lewis should be our first choice left back. I actually thought he’d adapted better than Max in the early part of the season and offers much more going forward than Byram. I’d be very disappointed if this happens.

    Newcastle Tickets

    I’m going. The match is almost incidental, the cheap beers and night out are the big sell. Obviously I’d like us to win though!
  14. I’d be very happy with Todd down the middle and Onel brought in out wide.

    Team for Bournemouth

    I don’t get the physicality as Mario is a much bigger bloke than Todd but this season Todd seems to have adopted a more aggressive/tenacious streak. Surely it’s just down to this rather than pure physicality?

    Team for Bournemouth

    Without picking a team, I’m intrigued as to how many people continue to pick Kenny. 1 goal and 1assist so far this season and can be fairly anonymous in games (last week being case in point). He’s had some very decent chances as well and not finished them (Arsenal and Palace spring to mind). Not good enough for that role at this level. Also a bit left field but I’d be inclined to play Leitner (not at no 10). He proved against Newcastle that he can dictate games against the lower teams in the league and our ball retention last week was dreadful. I think Bournemouth will play us at our own game so if he was ever going to play for us again, Saturday would probably be it.

    Tanganga looks decent and they also have Walker Peters who is young. Add that to Sessengon on the other side, that’d be a very young group of full backs!

    A dearth of strikers

    Thirsty, you appear to unwittingly be basically backing up my point. Firstly, I said most teams in the league would have 3/4 capable forwards, not all. By pointing out that Villa, a team also in the relegation zone and got battered yesterday, started yesterday’s match without a striker surely just emphasises my point?
  19. Clint

    A dearth of strikers

    All well and good spending very little money by premier league standards Thirsty but we’ve spent very little money by championship standards.
  20. Clint

    A dearth of strikers

    Most prem teams will have 3/4 forwards of varying degrees of ability but all deemed to be capable. I doubt any other team will go to Old Trafford this season being forced to give a debut to an 18 year old forward and no cover on the bench.

    Prudence v Naviety

    The project solely appears to be about the financials. The non-financial impact of relegation on a team/club doesn’t appear to be have considered. If it’s so easy to bounce back from relegation with a load of money in the bank, why do so many teams fail to do so? It’s not all about money, there’s far more factors at play that make a team/club successful or otherwise.

    Match thread v Man Utd.

    What the hell are those subs about? Tettey and McLean have both been absolutely shocking today. We’re 3-0 down and he takes off our only striker and most creative centre midfielder. I’m starting to wonder about Farke, the inability to read a game and react to it is a major issue. Neither of the above should’ve even come out for the second half, they’ve been thar bad today.
  23. Basically it’s got to the point that anyone signing will help our survival chances, even if it’s only marginal gains. We are woefully short on numbers and only Pukki and Cantwell have really scored any league goals this season, which is quite a damning fact as to why we’re sitting bottom of the league. We’re going into a match today with one fit striker, an 18 year old who has 2 minutes of premier league football to his name. Yes, you could argue it’s too little too late and our summer recruitment was a shambles but I’ve not given up just yet and if Duda makes any kind of contribution over the next few months, I’m all for it.

    Srbeny off?

    It baffles me how Dennis has been getting on the bench ahead of Idah anyway. Idah is a great prospect and has been scoring goals for fun. Dennis was never going to be a premier league player, he wasn’t even deemed good enough for the championship.

    I have a lot of dealings with the club so was told some time ago that two players were lined up for Jan. They’re hardly going to tell me names are they! You can believe it or not, it makes no odds, it’s just information that some posters may find of interest.
