  1. We have been spoilt by the movement of Pukki, simple as that. Hugill a completely different type of forward and showed much more today. Maybe a chance for a run in the team for him. maybe give him that run before we all decide to bin him off. but just to be clear i dont envy the job webber has replacing Pukki at some point. He makes any striker in this league look average.
  2. yet another crucial win. Don't forget we have 12 players out injured currently and a youth prospect in goal. Farke is working miracles to have us on 50 points from 24 games in a very challenging league all things considered.
  3. Also listened, so much of it was a front. Some deep rooted mental illnesses there, seems such a shame clearly a talented player but for whatever reason cant cope with the professional lifestyle required. Cant help but feel he will massively regret it in the future, deep down he knows where the problem lies and seems like hes trying to convince himself everything else is the problem. as other's have mentioned at the end of the day hes 29 and cant find a club, should be in the prime of his career but he has burnt to many bridges and as little as i want to body shame people he is clearly not fit. Waste, but hope he gets better.
  4. Player that needs time and a run of games, Vrancic, Stipermann & now even Rupp are examples of players who needed time to settle in to English football. Have to remember Placheta is completely new to English football and you can see that he needs coaching. Felt like v brentford he needed to be hugging the touchline and using his pace but he played like an inside forward and ran into traffic. Cantwell struggled in the championship at times first year and Hugill hasn't exactly got off to a flyer this year, with the budget we are working on we need to accept we are getting raw talent that needs work and we are very lucky to have a head coach who has a proven track record of getting the most out of his players.
  5. Krul Byram Zimmerman Hanley Lewis Trybul Vrancic Buendia(if fit)/Rupp Duda Cantwell Pukki in my opinion we lack width playing byram left back, who does not deserve to be dropped after his fantastic performance v Burnley and the same goes for lewis.
  6. We also need to seriously think about our home grown situation in case we are relegated this season. i wouldn't want us to sell any Home grown qualified players in January. If people are sold let it at least be over the summer and in championship then Farke has a pre-season to test out academy products and go to market if need's be.
  7. absolute madness. Check our record with and without him and think again, the lad never stops pressing and never hides. Always trying to create. his attitude is quite simply a culture thing, which he can't change.
  8. Stieperman is crucial to how we play, when he does not play we have not out/direct ball. Is he struggling with the step up? yes. However putting a Vrancic square peg in a round hole to replace him just makes the situation worse. This group of players deserve our support this season after what was a miraculous season last year. Give them all the time they deserve.
  9. Loans make total sense this year. If we get immediately relegated we only get 2 year's of parachute payments, This summer we have improved squad depth risk free, id do still think we are striker short. But realistically who is going to come to inevitably be 2nd or 3rd choice. If we stay up we know that we have 1 more year premier league money and a further 3 years of parachute payments (not 2), allowing us more freedom to offer 3-4 year deals on mid-lower level premier league money.
  10. Its a club totally stuck in the past and I'm glad. let them talk about the 80's. Meanwhile we invest in the category 1 academy, training ground and hopefully in the future the stadium. All while under a realistic cost neutral approach to be in the top 25 team's in England/Wales. meanwhile they fail a 12,000 season ticket holder target and systematically sell off there assetts to cover massive losses. Fortunately our fans and club is more ambitious and look's to the future.
  11. having a more comfortable player on the ball at centre back is vital to how we play. It also gives us the chance to overload on attacks. Video below covers it well. (sorry if this has been shared before) 5 minutes in.
  12. Im currently in the North East (Hartlepool) one of the lads from my sunday league team works for a removals company. Recently (2 weeks ago) moved Mr Rhodes to his new house in Norfolk from Middelsborugh. Seems as though to me the deal is done and the club is just waiting to announce it.
  13. Frankly who cares. Lambert left this club over a season ago. This is a forum for Norwich City supporters. I couldnt care less about Aston Villa, Lambert, or any players he signs. Some people need to move on and concentrate on supporting their own team.
  14. You are quite correct Canary girl. Instead of spending my time posting negative or positive posts on this forum during the vital run in. I, like many other loyal supprters, spent my time travelling to places like Wigan and Stoke as well as attending every home game and numerous other away fixtures and supporting the team, hoping that they would get the results they needed. Of course some of those performances were disappointing but Im a great believer in if you cannot say anything positive or productive dont say anything at all. I didnt say anything until i had something to say. I dont think im being smug, just factually correct. We finished 11th in the best league in the world and very few if any of the managers and players voiciferous critics have stood up to be counted and admit they were wrong.Not that this suprises me in any way at all. in fact I would have been astonished if they had. We wont have to wait too long for them to come out of the woodwork if we loose the first couple of games next season they will be back.
