    Team for Birmingham

    Vrancic and Leitner are just quality, quality players. It is a joy to watch two players with such great football brains and technical ability playing for Norwich. Difficult to get them in the same team perhaps but a good type of problem to have.
  2. It's hard to believe Freddy Adu is only 29. A bit like it was hard to believe he was only 14 when he made his debut.
  3. I'd have pretended not to see it.
  4. Thought Vrancic played some absolutely sublime football yesterday. Especially that first half. He took Derby to pieces. He also worked very hard. Although he was tiring I thought it was a mistake to take him off. Trybull is very slow and can struggle to adapt to the pace of the game, and Derby were obviously going to push forward with energy.
  5. Hanley is actually pretty quick. Perhaps deceptively so. When he's in his stride he covers the ground much quicker than Klose or Zimm.

    Klose back in the team asap.

    Maddison’s goal!!

    Think he needed a good headline after that pretty disgraceful dive the other day.

    Name your worst ever actual Norwich XI

    Ward was superb in the promotion season. Just struggled a bit in the Prem against genuine world class forwards - like Suarez.

    Name your worst ever actual Norwich XI

    Is that Elliott Ward? He shouldn't be anywhere near a worst team. Neither should Kane.
  10. Well yeah but we couldn't give Man City £13/14m for him like Southampton have.

    POTS so far

    Agreed. I might just go for Leitner as he is probably the one more than anyone else who makes the whole thing work. His football brain is second to none in this league. But I wouldn't want to play many games without Tettey either.

    A word for Tettey...

    If you don't rate Tettey I don't rate you.

    Murphy twins not missed

    Redmond would probably be quite a good fit for this team now with his ability to take the ball in tight spaces and the way he looks to link up.

    Max Aarons - Kyle Walker

    In fairness, Walker does play for one of the best sides in the world and under the greatest coach in the game.

    Lambert’s a binner

    Just with regard to his record at other clubs since he left, people compare everything to what happened here but how many managers bring promotions/titles to every club they go to?

    The majority of managers out there are keeping their club afloat (or trying to) in whatever league they are in.

    Lambert’s a binner

    Absolutely love the guy for what he did here. Three years as good as they come for a Norwich fan.

    Can''t say I want him to see him there but it won''t take away from what he did for us.

    Wonder how Jerome would have seen things had he not had a club/contract.

    Was saying last season it is obvious he''s got a brilliant football brain.

    Such a clever player. Nobody keeps the ball better than him in this league.

    A joy to watch.
  19. What remarkable turnaround?
  20. I didn''t "downplay" them as narrow. They were all 1 goal winning margins. That is as narrow as a win gets.

  21. He''s the one we''ve missed most but we don''t know if he can do it in this league...

    Doesn''t quite add up.
  22. We had a decent little run of narrow scoreline wins. Then against two of the stronger outfits we''ve taken 1 from 6.

    Too much has been made of those 4 league wins in a row. And the weaker links in the recent games have been the youngsters, particularly Buendia and Cantwell.

    Stoke match thread

    I thought they did a pretty good job at limiting us to not a lot. Final ball a bit lacking and Pukki not really in it.
