    It didn't! We kept a clean sheet at Everton when Godfrey was playing and conceded only one at Leicester (and that wasn't from open play) and Godfrey played in both those games. And we kept a clean sheet yesterday with Godfrey playing most of the game. I think it's got far more to do with Zimmermann coming back in since the Everton game.

    Of course - I did say 'if' and 'are to be believed'. If Dortmund carry on winning under their current manager then presumably there won't be any vacancy anyway.

    Out of Control? Yes! - Off the Ground? Yes!

    Wasn't even given as a free kick!!!!!!!!!!! So to be technically correct I suppose I should have been talking about Sebastien Haller's 'challenge'.

    Definitely not a Cantwell handball, but they were probably looking at the flick on by Duda to Cantwell. (Was a lovely volleyed first time pass to Pukki by Cantwell and a great instinctive first time effort by Duda. Shame they don't still do 'Save of the Season' because I think Cook would be in the running).

    There is a Norwich City related 'twist' to it though if reports that Dortmund are considering Farke as their next manager are to be believed.

    That 60 minute feeling

    That's just a weird post in my eyes Il Pirata. In the last 10 minutes of today's game Cantwell (more than any other Norwich player) stepped up to the plate and saw us across the line. He was still putting in 100% effort - making forward runs and defending from the front. He won us a crucial late corner with a great piece of skill and robbed Adam Smith on the half way line and drove forward leading Smith to cynically hack him down and get booked. (Both these bits of play took vital time off the clock and got us on the front foot late in the game).

    I can never remember how these things work nowadays, but I'm hoping that one of the three games he'll be suspended for is the FA Cup game.
  8. Played the ball? No! Made contact with the opposition player with force? Yes! Reviewed by VAR? Not a f*****g chance! I'm talking of course about Sebastien Haller's foul on Christoph Zimmermann in the West Ham v Norwich game earlier this season. A foul which led to West Ham taking the lead while Zimmermann was still injured and Zimmermann being ruled out injured for 11 weeks. I've got no issue with Ben Godfrey's red card today, but it's the lack of consistency (always to our disadvantage) which makes my blood boil.

    That 60 minute feeling

    I'm really not sure I agree with your assessment of today's game Van wink. Yes, Bournemouth had a little flurry roughly around the 60 minute mark, but after that we got totally on top again - Teemu missed a clear one-on-one, Duda really should have scored and their keeper made a great save from Emi. If you had been the manager today who would you have taken off at or before the 60 minute mark and who would you have replaced them with from our options on the bench?

    Ricardo's report v Bournemouth

    Love your report as always Ricardo, but not sure about that statement - surely Villa at home was lots worse?

    Time to move on.

    So you'll be pleased with the clean sheet today.

    Local Derby Returns - Kind Of

    We normally play a lot of underage players, but we might not have done on this occasion as the U18s have got a game tomorrow and the FA Youth Cup game on Tuesday night. Obviously a lot of players who could play for us at U23 level such as Famewo, Jaiyesimi, Gilmour, Mourgos, Payne, Power etc are out on loan already. And as I've mentioned before we could play an U23 team featuring Lewis, Aarons, Godfrey, Cantwell, Buendia and Idah if we so wished, but that would seem a bit unfair on the opposition.

    Local Derby Returns - Kind Of

    Apparently we lost 3-1! Heads need to roll.
  14. Given the financial s**t that Sheffield Wednesday are in I can't help wondering if that's just a desperate attempt to get some short term cash flow going.
