    Lukas Rupp

    got a feeling he will be pure back up at least to start with. Solid squad addition but not sure he addresses any of our weaknesses (defending set pieces and having a defensive line sitting way too deep and desperate). Very much feels like a clone of Stiepermann or something.

    Duda signed

    I just wonder if we would have been better doing more James Maddison type deals. Signed with a view to developing them in the championship if we go down or loaning them there if we stay up and they aren't quite ready for the prem. A couple of good examples of players we could be looking at are Luke Matherson from Rochdale who has had a couple of stand out games against prem opposition already at 17 years old and is a Norwich fan. Then there is the young lad at Peterborough, Ricky Jade-Jones who has broken into their strong attack already and is the quickest player they have ever had according to some. Supposedly the big guns are looking at him, as they were Maddison but we are a proven stepping stone for developing prodigious talents now so he may opt for us if it came to it. With us having £150m in the coffers coming at the end of the season, surely now is the time to start replacing the likes of Buendia and Aarons long term already? It would surely benefit us more than some loanee who will more than likely go back and just be more money spent for no real tangible return barring a miracle? Maybe Duda will be like Huckerby who was clearly too good for the championship but liked it so much he stuck around anyway?

    Duda signed

    whilst I don't dispute this, do you see any logic behind us doing this deal since we are likely doomed to go down already? Is this a sign of us not giving up yet or could Duda be a plausible permanent deal if we go down and he has impressed?

    Bounce straight back up?

    Problem is, does anyone bar Delia actually want to invest in this club? It is painfully obvious that we will never be a sustainable premier league team without more backing as there is no such thing these days but I honestly don't think there are any rich billionaires interested.

    Incoming?

    Seems a positive move. Still a bit concerned with going for a loan deal as it looks like it won't be much help unless we somehow perform miracles and stay up unless he fancies the championship... you never know though.

    Poor loan signings again.

    Funny how we have needed Fahrmann twice this season and both times he has been injured. He had his chance earlier in the year when Krul got injured only to have to go off injured and then now there is a cup game for him to be used in he's crocked again. Wish we had used the money elsewhere in hindsight and brought a centre back in on loan instead and relied on McGovern/youth for a back up keeper.
  7. wouldn't bother loaning anyone or spending lots of money. If we can tie up the Rhodes deal for a nominal fee that would be a positive move. Other than that, I'm not sure. I hope we can sack off the inept and damaging loan signings of Roberts and Fahrmann though, they are a stain on our squad at the moment and probably helping sap morale.

    Roberts and Fahrmann

    his wife was posting some things I believe.
  9. Relatives of both really have it in for us on social media. Makes me wonder what the hell is going on there. It can't be as simple as them not getting game time? Surely must be more to it. I think we have created a few bad apples this season with the lack of rotation in the squad.
  10. let's face facts, we are miles off defensively. Tettey/Trybull just isn't good enough at this level and we haven't really improved with Zimbo back. I honestly think we are weaker than last season at the moment and have alienated some talented players like Leitner in the process. Aarons in a team fighting for survival is too naive and attacking but he will be better for this season, sadly he will probably move on to a mid table prem side next season where no doubt he will thrive. Would have been interesting to see if Klose being there would have made us a bit more composed at the back. The lad seems cursed to ever play at prem level but easily is our most natural prem standard centre back. Godfrey is suffering a similar fate to Aarons. I think he has struggled this year as well though he has had to basically do it all on his own this year so cant be too harsh. I look a few places above us and see some very boring but compact teams like Burnley and Brighton that are just far better organised than us and not actually that terrible going forward as they are made out to be. It's galling to yet again see a talented Norwich side that is so near yet so far. Last time we were Sebastien Haller away from being good enough, the time before it was Wilfried Bony. The next few months is important to somehow get some momentum back and shake off this damaging losing mentality off. We cant just be constantly unlucky, there must be something ugly riding underneath all this bad luck. I just hope it doesn't turn ugly under Farke like it did with Alex Neil as I think getting back to the amazing football from last season isn't beyond us.

    Been pondering ...

    if we keep Emi for another Championship season I would be amazed. The guy is far too talented for a yoyo side like us.

    Team for next season

    I think Cantwell will stay unless he literally banged in 20 more goals and Real Madrid were calling. He would relish being the focal point of a team gunning for promotion next season now he has found his feet. Maclean is the CAM for the long haul I think so we better get used to it. He will be an important player in the championship. I think Klose may be moved on regardless or kept as Zimmermann back up. Whatever level we are at, I think another centre back will be coming in. Byram has surely signed up knowing what may happen so i think it will be him and I think Lewis will stay. Aarons will be sold. Can see Spurs taking a look at him. This leaves Trybull and a last hurrah for Tettey in the middle. I think Leitner may have burned his bridges behind the scenes and will go in summer if not sooner but you never know. I think we may need our own version of Kalvin Phillips next to Trybull anyway and Amadou will likely leave. We are all obviously hoping Idah does make the breakthrough but Icon and Drmic will probably still be about. I hope we end up buying Rhodes if we do go down though. I think Hernandez is here for the long haul as well. So in summary, gone from the starting 11 are Aarons, Godfrey, Buendia, Pukki Leaves Krul Byram, Zimmermann, New CB/Hanley/Rocky/Famewo, Lewis Trybull, Vrancic/new CM/Tettey Onel, McLean, Cantwell Idah/Rhodes

    Godfrey out for six weeks

    got to be Hanley and Zimmermann tomorrow. Arguably our most natural defenders anyway. Jimenez is more the target man type anyway and the Tettey/trybull axis should keep jota occupied

    ****Official match thread vs The Blades****

    Absolute shambles of a 2nd half, just soft, pathetic from a few players there who sadly dont look up for the fight. Got their payday and their days out in the sun and are happy to go back to the championship. No way we are staying up with this attitude.
  15. Tetteys Jig

    Are we going to survive ?

    doesnt look good but Zimmermann is back now so prepared to see how December pans out before I make my mind up. win 2 of the next 3 and we are back in the mix
