    McNally Speaks About Manager Search

    Michael Laudrup, done a great job with similar resources at Getafe and Mallorca in La Liga playing good style of football. Watch this space......

    Did we really play a weakend team?

    i''m fed up of people claiming it was a weakened side. Are these people who say this not seen norwich at all this season?! when has lambert ever not made 3-4 changes per game. we''ve played weaker looking sides in the league this season and won games, including games holt hasn''t played in.

    Some people need to calm down a bit and just accept we lost and move on, of course its disappointing and on average we should beat leciester more times than not, but this is football and upsets happen all the time. The reaction of some fans has been incredibly over the top. Had a good laugh reading all the moaners though

    Grant Holt to Rangers?

    Not a chance it would ever happen. Fair play to Rangers for trying though, he would literally score 50 goals a season in that tinpot league.
  4. Wolves would have gone down last year if they had written off the games against the big teams. They beat Chelsea, Man City, Man Utd and Liverpool last season. To say those sort of games don''t really matter are just false, every game is an opportunity to get 3 vital points.

    holt or morison?

    You cannot argue with the success of the 4-2-3-1 formation with Morison leading the attack, so it would be unfair to drop Morison having done nothing wrong and contributing to goals, if not scoring them. I think Pilkington, Hoolahan and Bennett have to play for the creativity they offer us, so that means only 1 striker currently, so for the time being Holt will have to keep putting in performances off the bench and wait for his opportunity to start, which he will get sooner or later. Then it''s over to him to put in a performance that makes him undroppable, something Martin, Fox, Johnson etc have succeeded in since coming in after not starting the season.

    It''s a nice problem to have, not that it''s a problem at all! Don''t really care which one plays as long as they are playing well in a winning team.

    2011 ACCOUNTS

    For the job McNally has done, he deserves every penny of that bonus. I don''t think people realise how important his role is. Just look at the work he does compared to Doncaster, he is a crucial component of the whole success of the club. He''s the one that makes the money to give Lambert funds to get the players he wants.

    How refreshing to see home based players

    Firstly, we should acknowledge that despite Morison, Crofts and Martin being Londoners, they are now either Welsh or Scottish in football terms.

    Anyway, I think Ruddy fully deserves a call up. I''d be shocked if after the last few games, Capello rates two championship keepers being better than him. After Joe Hart, theres no one who stands out as being a shoe in for the squad. Barring a Ruddy howler in the next 2 games, he will surely get the call up.

    As for Johnson, whilst I rate him highly, and has been a huge player for us this season, I can''t see him making much impact on the England squad. Saying that before the season started I wasn''t sure of Johnson when he was at Leeds but he proved me wrong, so he could do again with England.

    Regarding little Wes, it''s a crime he cannot get in the Ireland squad.
  8. I agree it will be a lot harder than it looks on paper. Let''s not forget Norwich came unstuck a couple of times last season when we thought we had a home banker (Palace and Doncaster).

    I''m glad Steve Kean hasn''t been sacked though, would of been even tougher had they got a new manager in for our game with all the enthusiasm that goes with it. He is out of his depth I think as a manager, in his interviews he never seems convincing and the protests must get to him.

    Certainly will be a clash of styles, keeping free kicks in our half down to a minimum is essential and Ruddy will be called upon again to be at his best with the amount of balls Blackburn will be pumping into our box. At the other end, I think Wes will be key, we won''t win by Morison bullying their defence as he did against Swansea, Samba is not one for losing aerial battles. Get in behind them and hopefully Robinson isn''t having one of those wonder games he has in his locker.

    As a prediction, I''ll go for our usual 2-1 win, but it will be extremely hard fought.

    Morison, Holt and Swansea

    i don''t think anyones writing him off. I''m certainly not. With the fine form of Morison and with the team winning games, it''s obvious he has to up his game to get his place back. Also you can''t keep harping back to the past, it''s how he is in the present and currently he''s a squad player not a pivotal player. I expect that may change at some point in the season, but for the time being most people are merely acknowledging that Holt isn''t at his best. If he was then Lambert would be playing him wouldn''t he.

    To be honest I don''t know why we try to find problems when things are going so well. Let''s just revel in our fine start to the season, because it won''t always be this serene. Facts are, Morison has earned his place, and it''s upo to Holt to win it back. As far as I''m concerned they are both top class so it''s win-win whoever plays!

    NCFC/Premier League Survey

    I''ve just done it. Wasn''t the best structured survey as you''ve mentioned. I just answered as if we were in the Prem last season. Mainly just bigged up Norwich for the most part, except for ticet prices.

    Interested to see what the results will be. Especially about what TV kick off times fans preferred. I put 8pm on Mondays, not the most convenient time, but there are not many night matches in the Premier League and the atmosphere is always much better under the lights.

    Why can't Surman cut it in the Prem?

    I wouldn''t write him off. He''s a decent squad player and will have do come in and do a job at some point. Will be better suited to the diamond though as he''s more of a left sided midfielder than a winger.

    Morison, Holt and Swansea

    i was disappointed with his performance off the bench on saturday as well. Not slating him or anything, but he didn''t look match fit, which is understandable as he hasn''t played much for a few weeks and hadnt featured in any reserve games. Tough one because Morison clearly deserves to play and the system is successful at the moment so 2 strikers isn''t what what we need currently. But without much football I think he suffers more than most as he''s always took time to get going in a season, something he hasn''t got the luxury of doing this season with greater competition.

    Hopefully a couple of reserve games in succession will get his fitness and sharpness back so he can perform to his best when he comes on as a sub. Would be great to see him get a few games and goals but he has to earn his place whe he gets the chance, and judging by is appearance saturday he''s going to have to do better to kick Morison out of the side, who has been excellent past few games.

  13. Yet more Norwich City related inaccuracies occured in The Times today, Grant Holt is apparantly Scottish now.

    Also remember in the Sunday Times last week, in the report of the Utd game, Norwich had 8 players in the side who played Bristol City in League 1 exactly 2 years ago.......an amazing lack of basic research or knowledge for a so called football journalist
  14. it''s pretty simple, if sky lose the case, for the next premier league tv rights, the premier league will not sell rights to every game to foreign tv companies, extending the ban on showing 3pm kick offs in the UK to the rest of the EU, to stop pubs taking advantage of this loophole.

    surely ''give us a hand'' is needed in reference to transfers
