  1. "Josh was not professional in his preparation for the Middlesbrough game." is a polite but accurate description of what he got up to when he met up with his brother. "“We spoke about it on Wednesday. He seems to be really reflective and he apologised in front of the group. He has learnt this message and understands it." https://www.edp24.co.uk/sport/norwich-city/canaries-boss-farke-warns-murphy-to-up-his-game-1-5216278
  2. It's not all the time though. I heard the background to the Josh Murphy rebuke and Farke was totally justified.
  3. I thought zero creativity was referring to Keith Scott's posts
  4. I thought that Barcelona and Bayern had agreed a deal for Dest of Ajax, with Dest preferring Bayern.
  5. Listening to Boris at his 8pm address, I wish he could cut out the waffle and get to the point, a few PowerPoint bullet-points would have been quicker and clearer. A staggering level of fluff.
  6. "discussions ongoing" so nothing concrete, but wouldn't surprise me if something happened
  7. Understandable but it sounds like it's going to be a long winter for a lot of clubs
  8. I can't see Tariq Lamptey staying long at Brighton at this rate, he's blisteringly quick for a right wing back.
  9. https://www.skysports.com/watch/video/sports/football/competitions/league-two/12076455/morecambe-0-5-cambridge
  10. Even when we were bossing the Championship 18 months ago, we played two holding midfielders to cover the defence to allow the full backs to bomb forward and provide the width
  11. Highlights are up https://www.skysports.com/watch/video/sports/football/competitions/championship/12076303/norwich-2-2-preston
  12. God knows what Skipp was doing for the second goal, though the first one is the softest penalty decision I think I've ever seen.
  13. Onel doing his best to take the attention away from Todd's hair
  14. Liverpool are paying £41-45m for Jota from Wolves, so unless Wolves come in for him I struggle to see the club getting £20-25m for him.
  15. "A knock" is probably a polite way of saying that the club weren't impressed with the interview, especially coming off the back of a three game suspension
  16. Michael Bailey was given some numbers as part of his end of season piece in the Athletic , and had said that the projected shortfall was £20m, £15m from last season and a provision of £5m with the expectation that crowds wouldn't be allowed into Carrow Road before January. He'd also said a projected £8m rebate to broadcasters would be deducted out of our year 2 parachute payment. When we last were relegated our average wage was around £28k a week, this time one player was above £20k a week, and most players are on £10k - £15k. This was prior to the summer signings, but Jordan Hugill had been reported a taking a large wage cut from his West Ham money, leaving only Ben Gibson on large wages. The wage bill can easily be handled by the parachute payments, meaning that there is surplus money there. Dave Freezer had said at the end of the January window that Norwich had a £10m-£15m transfer surplus after a final deal feel through. I think the club is deliberately being coy about the numbers given that we claimed £2.5m from the furlough scheme.
