    What’s the problem?

    This is feeling like 2017/18 season where we played the ball around ok but lacked goals and chances and let in poor goals. we have lost 4 of our away games 2-0? all games have felt very similar, worth putting a bet on against everton.
  2. With the Window shutting on Friday to buy a home or away premier memberships, does anyone have any idea how many have been sold of each? I'm assuming that with the club closing the sale of both it's got to large numbers of premier members?

    Had a look back through the history of the club at home, Norwich have played 27 season in a 46 game league, this being the 28th
    using 3pts for a win, the worst 3 season are
    1956/57 - W7  D5  L11 - 26Pts  finished 24th
    1995/96 - W7  D9  L7   - 30pts  finished 15th
    2008/09 - W9  D5  L9 - 32pts finished 22nd
    All of which there were managerial changes made.
    *2017/18 - W6  D8  L6 - 26pts - 3games remain, max of 35pts if we achieved this it would be place in the top 5 worst seasons at home
    Another worrying thing is the goals at home, currently on 20, our lowest in a 46 games season at home was in 2000/2001 - 25goals, also we have never had a negative home goal difference in the championship, we currently have a -1 GD
    this being said, with the most expensive season ticket in the league, I feel we have been some what short changed, and the fans can''t be happy,
    We keep being told this is work in progress with the new football philosophy, but it''s not been good enough, not sure where the club is going but the owners are no longer invested in the club, the big words used by the board is ''self sustainable'' - which basically means, funded by the supporters and TV, player sales (which is unsustainable), there are cuts in every department except for the season ticket prices.
    Farke and Webber for me have until the first 10games of next season to show mass improvement, challenging for a playoff spot, if they''re not, its going to get a lot more ugly at Carrow road.

    Whats the source of your stats Fraz? Did you get them from a particular website?[/quote]
    from various by looking at the league table showing home and away records (mainly soccerbase.com and wikipedia)

  5. just feels like the Roeder again, he was trying to play an Arsene Wenger style of Football 10years ago, bring in certain types of players, and ignore that players you need which are good old fashion championship players

    Kenny MacLean

    this would seem very odd if this was the case, especially for the player and his agent, bearing in mind he was allowed to speak to other clubs from the 1st Jan about a summer move

    can''t see why Aberdeen would be entitled to any money unless he left this month.
  7. I think it is highly unlikely that we will make the playoffs and think we are to far ahead of the relegation, I have a real feeling that the club have given up on this season to a certain extent.

    The proof in this will be if we sign any permanent players in this window, I have a feeling now that we won''t, we are only being linked with loan players, the one that does look to come - Kenny McLean looks like we have signed a pre-contract to arrive in the summer on a free.

    teams that aren''t going up or down wouldn''t waste the money in January as they are normally a little inflated compared to the Summer.

  8. they now have a new way to pay for the academy, they setup various FDC centres, tell parents there son or daughter is the next best thing, then sting them for essentially paying for the whole thing, charging over £100 for kit and £350 for weekly training, they have 100s of kids in these schemes.
  9. What would be quite an interesting stat is how many adult season ticket holder we have? essentially a seat in the stadium is just a seat but depending of the age of the person sitting on that seat is what the value is to the club. i would say that if there is a high percentage of child/65+ season ticket holders, this would have an impact on the club dropping the price.
  10. I did the research last season, continuing this year

    for last season

    For the south stand (where generally casual tickets are available)

    £669 for non members adults (ave £29.08)

    £623 + £20 for membership adults (ave £27.95)

    first season ticket renewal £510 (ave £22.19)

    new season ticket after last buying period - £596 (ave 25.91)

    now there were some games where as my son went to half term soccer schools I was offer £15 adult tickets so i could have saved an addition £60.

    if your interested in the cost of going to the away games it would have cost £591 for those tickets

    As for this Season of the 14 games (including Sheff Utd) the average price per game is £25 for non member, £23.14 for a member.

    Sustaining the future

    For me the club have never thought long term, there decision not to increase the capacity at Carrow road (even though they said they would) when it was full every week (even in league 1) has weakened the clubs ability to grow the support, something that they had done well in the past, hence the amount of season ticket holders we have. a full ground has been the situation for the last 10yrs we have missed a generation of would be fans that will go on and to support the chelsea''s & Man Us of the world as there is little opportunity to see their local team without planning a month in advance.

    When I take my 8yr old to saturday morning football training I hardly see and kids with Norwich kits, its seems to be alot of Harry Kane tottenham shirts.

    FA Cup 3rd Round draw

    that''s got to be the worst draw, little chance of winning, they might play the second string, no day out, expensive tickets.
  14. I think the reality is 95% will renew regardless of the style of football, due to nothing else to do on a Saturday afternoon, its become more of a social/routine occasion, and there will always be others who will take their place, the only thing that may stop that is a big price hike, thought can''t see how the club would do it, it''s already the most expensive in the Championship.
  15. with all that''s gone on in the last few months, the poor results at home, recent poor form in the last 7 games without a win and that fact that we played really well at Cardiff but lost 3-1, surely a home game against mid table Sheff Wed should be 3points? if not, there can be no hiding.

    There is a lot of pent up frustration with the home form from the fans, myself wont be accepting an thing less 100% commitment and high energy from the players, if they don''t turn up and bore us to death with sideways passing and 1 shot on goal, I would think that Farke talks a good games but it is really just hot air. If we play well but are beat again, I would be worried that he and the team are not good enough compete at this level and that a change to settle that ship is need urgently.
