  1. 4. Intriguing line - "In fact, Norwich hope their two midfield signings — once completed — will underline why they have not been looking as low as League One for incomings this window". I remember Paddy saying a similar thing last close season and look at how those signings turned out I hope some learning has been done.
  2. Dean Smith saying the players haven't been good enough, albeit after relegation was confirmed, might sow doubt in some players as well. I guess the facts to back this opinion but wouldn't you question a manager that says this after continually spreading the message the players are good enough earlier on?! Deep down, did DS ever believe they were good enough.
  3. Jacob Murphy did well in league one before the Championship. I think a lot would argue he'd walk into our current side.
  4. Scored a decent goal for Doncaster today. 4 for them since he joined in January. Could he be an option as a number ten next season?
  5. BBC have Sinani down as right in a back three https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/61115597
  6. He was on radio 5 live last weekend and said he's mates with Dyche. He also warmed to Farke, as we know, after their initial spat.
  7. I seem to remember after Lees-Melou was signed we had a period of a few weeks where no one else was brought in, until Sargent and Tzolis. During that time, we seemed to be confirming outgoing loans and Thompson's contract was ended (loans and contract terminations have been happening all summer I know). Small loan fees coming in and a reduction in the monthly wage bill is very helpful. Norwich are always working with a tight budget so cutting costs is a constant operation. They've said they want better quality with less numbers. I wonder whether this extra bit of revenue / monthly wage budget will help when bringing the final pieces of the jigsaw in. I'm hopeful we will get at least the defensive midfielder. Hopefully a centre back as well.
  8. I'd steer clear of Liverpool youth players. They overprice them. Brewster and Ibe are two examples...they've hardly excelled since they left. Jurgen would keep them if he saw real class.
  9. Webber / Farke have never been reactive with their vision. They will have had this summer partially planned once they got relegated from the prem two seasons ago.
  10. I like the way Normann is holding the football in the photo on the front page. If this is his speciality, he must get sent off a lot.
  11. I look at a striker like Bamford who had three failed premier league loans (Us, Burnley, Palace) and flattered to deceive. Put in the right set up and he's excelled. Webber / Farke have done the research. They know how we will play this season. Trust their judgement. It might just be a good fit.
  12. Tzolis almost done https://www.edp24.co.uk/sport/norwich-city/canaries-ncfc-christos-tzolis-move-close-8212354
  13. I reckon we definitely need another good quality centreback. Dunno who but I'm sure we've done our homework. Get Omobamidele out on loan. He's got a shed load of potential but it'll probably be better for him to get gametime in the championship or league one for a season. Zimmermann seems to have lost a bit of his reliability since the injury in the premier league. Hanley, after a run of games, looked really solid last season. With him in the side, we actually had some solidity and there was a small glimmer of hope we'd stay in the league. He didn't play at all once project restart was underway, from memory.
  14. He was our best defender in that short spell before lockdown in the premier league. Added to that, he excelled in the first season after we'd bought him. He suffered with injuries in the championship winning season. Clearly isn't the graceful modern centre back but he's pretty damn solid when he gets a run of games!
  15. I actually thought Hanley, when up to speed, was our best centre back last season...probably not the greatest accolade, considering our defending collectively. Injuries aside, I'd play him and Gibson.
