    Premier League sack race

    Neil Warnock - assuming he doesn''t walk first

    Premier League table

    Cant really disagree with the general groupings (top 4, bottom 6 ish strugglers and the rest). I would be surprised if two out of the three promoted teams survive though, with Swansea for me heading back down in place of Wigan.

    Comparing 2011 to 2004

    Would agree on most positions/players with the exception of the two full backs.

    Drury circa 2004 was in his prime and excellent that season, whilst Tierney has looked good for us and kept him out of the team last season he will find the going a lot tougher over the coming months.

    Biggest mystery though is how anyone can rate Martin higher than Helveg. This is a comparison between a guy who has never played at higher than Championship level against an international player with over 100 caps who was a regular in Seria A, Bundeslegia and Premiership. Helveg suffered from being played out of position initially by Worthy but by the end of the season, back in his natural role, he was looking as good as anyone in the team.

    [quote user="Gene Tierney"][quote user="ncfcstar"][quote user="Gene Tierney"][quote user="ncfcstar"]We deployed the 4-5-1 system, obviously trying it out to see how it will go in the Prem.  [/quote]Yeah obvious, considering we were playing Southend.[/quote]Sorry, who are you?Playing Southend has nothing to do with it, we were trying a different system out, we could have been playing Dereham for all it mattered; the point of the match was to try it out and it worked.[/quote]Me obviously [/quote]No you are you.

    Positive Thread

    We are about to start a new season in the Premier League with the best manager we have had in years.

    What''s not to be positive about?

    Clinghan to Leeds?

    [quote user="First Wizard"]

    Still at the rumour stage, but I didn''t see this coming.


    Your crystal balls must be foggy, try rubbing them.

    Titus Bramble spotted

    [quote user="GJP"]. That''s why he has played in the Premier League regularly for the last few years - he''s got the quality to cut it that level.


    Agreed, you don''t last as long as he has at that level and not have something going for you.

    More To Offer...? Yeah Right...

    Plenty of huff and puff but no end product. That he could not make it into a Derby team who spent the second half of last season in free fall says it all.

    Not one I am sad we missed out on. Even on a pay as you play deal you would always worry every time he went in for a challenge he would not get up again thereby potentially disrupting the team during the match and using up one of your substitute options.

    Carling Cup.........

    [quote user="crafty canary"]PL wants to win every game so he won''t be entertaining weakened sides. When we played Poulton rovers in the FA Cup 2 seasons ago did he play a weakened team ? Did he f**k. [/quote]He did when we played Blackburn in the Carling Cup last season though.

    Craig Thomson?

    [quote user="CDMullins"]Bore must be a WUM[/quote]Whatever gave him away? [:^)]

    OT- I still love ya Doc.

    [quote user="I am a Banana"]

    Doherty fancied himself both a defender and a center forward, sort of a modern day John Charles. [/quote]

    Sadly he possessed the vision of Ray Charles. [H]

    The Premier Friday Joke Thread

    I am really fed up today as I got fired from my job on the dodgems for no good reason.Mind you, my solicitor reckons I can get them for funfair dismissal.

    South Wales or East Anglia?

    Even with the benefit of canary tinted specs, I would have to say you would need to be a certified loony to rate Swansea as a better place to live and work than Norwich.
  20. Ivana_rubyatitz


    Swansea for me, they play good passing football.
  21. Ivana_rubyatitz


    As others have already said, now we have Vaughan I don''t think we will be looking at him anymore as the priority is likely to switch to a bigger striker to challenge Holt for a place.If we can still pick him up for a smallish outlay upfront linked to add ons though it would be nice to have him. I saw him play a few times for Posh when in Champs and when they were last in League 1 and was not always that impressed, but of late his all round game has come on in leaps.Our last few signings from Peterborough have not worked out that bad at the end of the day...

    Bowyer to Norwich?

    [quote user="Adam NCFC"]Bowyer is an idiot. Why would we want a mug like that? [/quote]Because he is a mug who has spent pretty much his whole career as a first team regular in lower to mid-table Premiership teams (something that next season we should be aiming to be) and he was good enough to play in a Champions League semi-final.He may have been an idiot as a youngster but in a squad bereft of Premiership experience someone who has been there and done it would not go amiss for a season if they are available on a free transfer.

    James Vaughan to Norwich?

    [quote user="CRAZY LEGS"]would expect it to be about 1m up front with add ons if we stay up, scores 20 goals, england call up etc[/quote]

    If that turns out to be the deal it would be a shrewd bit of business.

    Goalkeeping Experience

    [quote user="Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Man"][quote user="Norfolk Mustard"]

    Where does this leave the argument that keepers have to have both age and experience to get a job in the Premier League?


    Who said that?

    It is pretty much the perceived wisdom in general and has often been spouted in here.

    Have to say that I would agree that keepers, like wine, generally improve with age to be honest but there are the occasional exceptions like this guy.
