  1. I thought we would survive both seasons under Farke, blind optimism most likely. So maybe under Smith where we look far from ready for the Prem, maybe we will all be surprised. Under Farke we blew away everyone and were by far the best team in the League, and it done us no favours at all in the Prem.
  2. I am no fan of Dean Smith at all and agree with the OP re: Farke, but its a bit ridiculous to suggest Smith should be sacked tonight. We are top of the league. You dont sack a manager top of the league. Having said that I believe it is a false position and in no way indicates we are either moving in the right direction or Dean Smith will be a success in the Prem with Norwich. I believe it is a false position because the teams we have played so far have been utterly woeful, League 1 standard. The Championship has dropped in quality since Farke's last title win. The second we come up against a decent side in Reading we struggled. Bristol were the better team and we got away with it as we have the best 2 strikers in the League. Prestion werent great but were solid and organised and executed there counter attacking game plan well. Last 4 games have not been great. Draw with West Brom, narrowly beat a poor Blackpool side, draw with Reading and a loss to Preston. Next 6 games will be telling I think as its a tough run with Watford, Burnley, Stoke, Sheff Utd and QPR in the mix. If we are still top then we will just have to accept this is the Dean Smith way, Farkeball is gone and its as good as its gonna get. The problem for me is that the Championship is so poor and most teams are closer to League 1 standard than Prem standard. There are only a handful of decent teams, Norwich, Reading, QPR, Watford, Burnley. Rest of the league is utter dross. So we may well get promoted, but this current team and the way we play, I dont see how it survives in the Prem, and I just dont see that Smith is building a Prem survival team. In my opinion we are top because for the most part we have played League 1 quality teams.
  3. 'lie after lie' Seriously mate, get a life. Suns shining go out and enjoy it mate.
  4. You do realise it wasn't me that originally said we were a national embarrassment last season? You are aware of that yes? Secondly at what point have I slagged the club off? Someone further up on this post gave his opinion that we were a national embarrassment last season. If you choose to pretend like last season didn't happen and we weren't a mess of a club at times then carry on pal in your delusional bubble. I'm also at a loss why you are disputing it, it's like last season didn't f@#£_ng happen for you. Were you asleep? The 7-0s and 5-0s. The bottom place finish 16 points from safety. The weekly demolish job by the media. We were an embarrassment in the Premier League and anyone who suggest otherwise, well I just don't know what you were watching. Secondly I was merely giving an example when I said we should spend £25m on 2 players like the Southamptons of this world. Yes perhaps using Southampton as an example wasn't the right team as they've spent more like £10m-£15m on each player. If it makes you happy and you can sleep at night, pick another team slightly higher up the Prem table. Either way, this is my opinion, which is the point of this board. And it's my opinion that spending far more on an individual player would have been better. This is my opinion mate, it's not right or wrong and you certainly don't have any kind of authority to determine its validity. If you have such a sad life that your only motivation in a day is to vet everyone's post on a football messageboard for 100% accuracy then I pity you. I was making an example point that spending £3m here and £8m there on players is not sufficient to stay up, and the teams that do spend significantly more on individual players. This is a universally accepted fact of life in the Prem. And again you do need to get a life pal if your energy is focused on nit picking every thing someone says on here to the death just to claim some kind of personal victory and destroy the poster because the point he made wasnt 100% grammatically correct or contained slightly incorrect detail. It's not that big a deal mate. Last season we were a shambles and the media looked upon us as such. We needed to spend £25m on players, not £5m to stay up. I fail to see why you have such a problem with these two opinions.
  5. Some people post what they believe to be factual statements, that may or may not contain inaccuracies. Doesn't mean you have to pathetically jump all over it. Get a bloody life pal. And the fact is we were slated in the media last season. I fail to see why people are disputing this.
  6. What is it with people wanting proof to backup everything thats said on here? Its pathetic. Were not in bloody school and every post isnt an essay on football, that must be backed up with proof and footnotes. This forum is the equivalent of football chat down the pub. Yet many, on this post as an example just want to dispute everything said. Everything said are opinions, they may include factual statements that are innacurate or incorrect. This doesnt mean you have to jump on everything little thing and throw your toys out the pram because your either butt hurt about something, dont agree or just have a strange fascination of requiring people show proof and back up of everything thing they say.
  7. Not really Horsefly. I posted an opinion of how things could have gone had we spent differently and kept Emi and Skipp. It was you that decided to reply to my opinion as if I was stating scientific fact disputing it.
  8. I didnt even share this opinion, I just echoed it. The OP i think used the term national embarassment.
  9. Oh Sweary..... Firstly, if you disect my comment I didnt call you a W&nker. I assumed that you had just let it slip that you were in actual fact Colin W&nker, which as we all know is Neil Warnock's alter ego. Secondly, what exactly is your issue? Are you actually trying to convince everyone that Norwich werent portrayed as anything other than a laughing stock by the sports media? You seem to be demanding proof of it and are convinced it didnt happen. Everyone knows it did pal, we just didnt save every website article or record every Match of the Day clip/Talksport phone in. Becuase, well, who the f&%k does that? Doesnt mean it didnt happen.
  10. wasnt my discussion either and I still cant work out why certain people seem to be so upset at the suggestion that the media labelled us a national embarrassment last season. They did, because we were. Everytime we were mentioned on Match of the Day, Sky Sports, Talksport, the press etc. it was all about how $hite we were. How someone is claiming this didnt happen, and is almost personally offended at the suggestion it did, is beyond me. Said person also seems to conflate the above happening with people actually being affected by it personally and being upset.
  11. This is possibly the worst comeback in the history of the internet. Grammar correction, and telling us your Colin W&nker. As for evidence, its all in my memory from last season's media attacks at how pathetic we were.
  12. Christ, some people will argue with a lamp shade. Its just an opinion mate, you dont have to disect everything people say and try to work out the scientific validity and whether its provable or not. Any 'might have been' opinion is just that, speculation and conjecture. I think its pretty universal to suggest had we been able to keep Buendia and Skipp, and then spent £50m on two proven quality Premier League players, that we we would have had a far better chance of survival than spunking the lot on Tzolis, Sargent and Rashica and PLM.
  13. You have better eyesight than me then as since November 21 I have failed to see any sense of progressive gameplan from Smith. Maybe it will change with the new players. I disagree with Farkes first season though, to me it was clear what Farke was trying to do, we just didnt have the players to execute it.
  14. Just use your real name then. I have a career also and my firm has connections with the club as a regional partner, however this doesnt mean i have to post anonymously . Your just making excuses. If you knew me personally you would know im far from the sensitive type, i just get sick of everytime i come on here we see keyboard warriors like you, posting anonymously, spouting abuse at people who disagree. You seem to also have made more out of my suggestion. It wasnt a virtual 'lets step outside', and i dont see whats laughable or pathetic about it. Your just saying that to distance yourself even further from actually doing it, along with your 'safeguarding issues cause of your career' crap. Its a valid suggestion to try to get the anonymous and cowardly children on here that act big and tough and hurl abuse, to act like adults and just have conversation and debate about NCFC. I have always said dont say things on the internet that you wouldnt have the balls to say to someones face (cue the ' i would say everything ive said to your face cause im hard' reply). I also dont understand why you so vehemently are attacking people who said we were a laughing stock and an embarassment last season. We were, and it was a running theme in the sports media. I dont know where your getting it from that it wasnt the case. And also why you seem to be taking it so seriously and are battling people who say that we were and demanding 'proof'.
  15. I feel like though, the longball stuff was more last resort in the absence of any prior game plan. That seems to be a growing theme under Smith. Lack of game plan. I may be wrong, as im not a professional footballer, but when several players start resorting to hoof balls its down to a lack of plan. We never saw it under Farke, we stuck to Farkeball right to the last minute. Look at the Forest 3-3. 97th minute and Farkeball gets the equaliser. Farkeball to the death. Against Cardiff we were punting after 40 mins! Because there was no other plan in the players minds. Farkeball has been well and truly coached out of them. This is why at times we look clueless attack wise and lack an identity and an obvious tactical plan on how to formulate goal scoring chances. Without a plan the players are just resorting to punting towards goal.
