    Brentford Match Thread

    Need different penalty taker but good result against a very dangerous Brentford team. Our defence is the best I remember in a very long time and krul has settled. Nice to win when not at our best our improvement since early September has been outstanding and coincides with Zimmerman,steipermann,Aarons being regular starters

    A magnificent player for our club. I am optimistic he will stay though will have to be reduced terms

    No goals no top six

    Our style of play makes us now a difficult side to beat but we have very few players with an eye for goal and we do not get the ball in the box often enough. Work in progress but still very much mid table for me

    Lack Of Goals

    Lots to be pleased about recently but my observation on the goals front is even when the man in possession is in front of goal we prefer to pass it out wide again rather than goal for goal. Plus very few players in the squad are natural goalscorers. Our successful recent game plan is based on keeping it tight and getting the first goal. We struggle when we go behind

    Today will tell us a lot.

    We played some nice football and were the better side. The OG was very unfortunate. We struggle when we fall behind though and there are not too many goals in the side. The youngsters are coming on leaps and bounds, Cantwell for the first time for me looked very good indeed and Zimmerman was immense. Still a top half rather than a top 6 side for me though, but that''s not bad. We lack a big battering ram type striker to allow us to go direct
  6. The upside of the new model is that we will always have a club to support unlike the Rushdon and diamonds and scarboroughs of this world. The downside is a slow but gradual deterioration in status and expectations. Funny how things go full circle for decades prior to the 1970s we were a club that bounced between in effect league 1 and the championship, we may be heading that way again. The the level of support stays high and we manage to produce and sell good young players then championship will be more probable. The consequence of a significant drop in support and failure to generate transfer surplus is obvious. The caveat also is by chance we may occasionally hit on a managerial gem for short term success

    Godfrey seems to have built his reputation ob loan as an energetic midfielder. I feel this is the type of player our midfield is missing at the moment a direct attacking physical presence. This being the case I am bemused Farke seems intent on playing him as a CB especially when we have Zimmerman who is competent in that role. What are peoples thoughts on the lads best position
  8. I am no doom monger and suspect we will finish lower mid table. That said for some to totally discount the potential of relegation is being complacent. Last season 42 would have been safe which is about where we are 6 games in. The previous season Blackburn went down with 51 and we are not hitting those levels yet. Regardless of the model Farke needs a stonking run the stand any chance of a new contract

    In isolation a draw away in a derby game has to be acceptable even though they probably had the best of the game. More worrying after 6 games we already have early evidence that has to be concerning and less than a point a game is relegation form. We will just have to see but the early season optimism of some has been blown away and looks like being a long hard season. Even if farke does not get the pre Christmas chop I cannot see even this board extending his contract which runs out in the summer

    Lets see what happens at full time

    Worse Possible Result For Fark

    I have my doubts about farke but the worst result would have been a hammering. Our second team was better than theirs which must give some rise to optimism.

    Great result and performance. I know it is only the cup but a win is a win
  13. Yorkshire  Canary


    Well I am talking about Rhodes he didn''t have a sniff of a chance against Preston or Leeds. He is feeding off scraps. Pukki has the ability to make things happen himself. Rhodes did ok in the WBA game and had other chances and the penalty miss was a shame for him and the team. At home since then he has looked somewhat out if sorts

    There's three main problems at Norwich City

    I don''t mind that the current owners have no meaningful money in footballing terms. I do mind the many many poor managerial ,boardroom and transfer decisions they have made over the years. They are fans but lack footballing house. Occasionally they have stumbled on a decent mix law of averages I suppose. No confidence in Balls or any of the others and we are in a downward drift that can be arrested with astute appointments

    4 wins in last 21 games

    Not good which is why we are a bottom 6 to 8 club side but as of yet probably not a bottom 3. There are quite a few draws in those 21 games
  16. Yorkshire  Canary


    A player who was once hot property at this level and who is desperate to succeed after a couple of bang average seasons. From what I gave seen so far is odd glimpses of his better days and he is trying hard but in a role he is not suited to. He needs to be playing off a big striker to give him the chances not try and be a target man. Pukki is excellent but they are being strarved od any meaningful service and chances. At the moment if given the opportunity I don''t think Rhodes would be worth half the £10m transfer fee or half the reported £50 000 a week that the owls paid
  17. Yorkshire  Canary

    We must stay positive

    We will get the odd result enough to keep us out of the bottom three but that''s probably as good as it gets. If this was a club like Rotherham it would be seen as success but we have been used to better and on one occasion worse. The direction of travel in the longer term is not encouraging

    Had enough of it now

    The board have set the strategy of our management structure. The self financing structure is the only option in the absence of new investment as this board have no cash. It was this board the oversaw the horrible waste of money in the last few seasons. Webber and farke are smaller players in this. Webber was charged with balancing the books which he has done and his signings reflect that we now shop in pound land rather than Waitrose. That said we have players capable of seeing us in a top half position. Farke is what it says on the tin a pleasant and intelligent guy who had no managerial track record whatsoever in his own country. He makes Alex Neil look like a Warnock. No surprise that it isn''t working. Probably the only other coach who would be willing to work this system is another foreign appointment or someone desperate for a job. This squad should be top half not bottom half but far from confident they will make any positive change unless David Wagner gets the push from Huddersfield. The probability is farke will get the push and we are disappointed with the replacement. The faint hearted will stop coming to watch the committed like me will continue to come frustrated but powerless to change events

    Will a defeat next Sunday be the end of Farke?

    I suspect we will get at least a point followed by a draw or loss v borough which will keep him dangling on for a few more weeks longer. The end game is inevitable he will not get another contract at the end of the season

    Tim Krul

    only QPR have let more in. Krul is responsible for possibly 3 but not the other 8. Drop pinto first most of the chances are coming down his side as he goes walkabout. I have severe doubts about krul it does look as his confidence has gone but improve the defence in front of him first including 3 cb away from home it was one of the few things that worked last season. Drop krul now and we may as well get rid as he will not bounce back

    Talk amongst the crowd

    We have been here many times under this board. There is a slow drift of support away from the club. I see resignation rather than anger all people can do is continue to buy tickets or not. I see no mass desertion but gates seem about 1000 down on last year this will probably continue, slow stagnation rather than revolution

    Result v Ipswich

    Ipswich are in a worse state of health than Norwich the post mc carthy era doesn''t look good. If Norwich do no get something out of this then we are into meltdown and more than farke could get blown away

    This Comment From Farke!

    Dead man walking the fans have switched off noone is listening any more. He needs a win at Ipswich to even keep him on life support

    Grant Holt in time for the derby?

    Holt doesn''t speak German. On a serious note we are crying out for someone with a track record at this level
