    Shouldn't be surprised I suppose....

    But if the nation as a whole has more interest in one thing than another, surely it makes sense to cater for that? Using the logic that everything needs to be equal, why don't the BBC show the same amount of League One and League Two as the Premier League? Why don't they dedicate as many hours to golf as football? If there are more Arsenal fans in the UK than Norwich fans, it makes sense that BBC give more coverage to Arsenal. Similarly, there are more Norwich fans than Southend fans (for example) so we get more coverage than Southend.

    Tettey/Amadou

    I'd play both, which is very harsh on Trybull. Our midfield looked very good at Everton with Tettey and Trybull, and also against Arsenal with Amadou and Trybull. I guess it could be argued that the common denominator is actually Trybull, however I feel that in both games he was outperformed by his partner. Trybull hasn't done a lot wrong in those two games, but as I said, both Amadou and Tettey offer more, in my opinion. Amadou clearly has more energy and physical presence than both of the others, as well as probably more technical skill, and he was also able to drive forward at times against Arsenal into shooting positions (although maybe he should refrain from actually shooting when he gets there). I also feel that Tettey's positioning and experience offer more than what Trybull brings to the party, so I'd use the Tettey-Amadou combination.

    Farke's fortitude

    I was genuinely considering the exact same one-word response earlier before bottling it out of fear of controversy. Hats off to you, sir.

    Me neither, but at least we can understand why the media talk more about them than us.

    FA Cup Draw.

    No offence to Preston, but this is quite possibly the least interesting tie we could've possibly got. An away game against a team from the league below, and one we've played against several times in the last few years anyway. I think we have to play the second string for many reasons. Firstly because they need match fitness, secondly because they'll get unhappy if they're not playing, thirdly because we can rest our key players and also because the second string may actually play with more fire in the belly and motivation because they want to force their way into the first team rather than be concerned about picking up injuries.

    But the bottom line is that there are still far more people both in the UK and abroad that are more interested in Arsenal. That's why they get more media coverage.

    Another One in The Eye for Brain Dead Cantwell Critics......

    Lightweight maybe, but lazy? He's worked extremely hard in all of his appearances this season with regard to pressing and tracking back.

    And an awful lot of people in Africa and Asia give a toss about Arsenal. How anyone can try to argue that as many people nationally/internationally care about Norwich as Arsenal and we should receive equal coverage is beyond me.

    Complete Bulls***

    This is what I said on numerous occasions before the season started. Lots of people seemed to think that would be no more controversial decisions with VAR and all decisions would be correct, but when so many decisions are opinion and not matter of fact, it's impossible. As long as VAR gets the matter of fact decisions right and eliminates the howlers, I think that's the best we can hope for. Yesterday I think all the matter of fact decisions were correct, and there weren't any obvious errors given by the ref so what we saw yesterday is almost as good as VAR could ever be, unfortunately.

    Farke's fortitude

    He seems to have a real knack of improving players. Aside from those you mentioned, just look at Aarons, Lewis and Godfrey- players who have gone from the youth team to not looking out of place in the Premier League in just two years. It could quite possibly be the same for the players in the opening post- they've just developed considerably as footballers under Farke.

    To the "child"....

    Penalties not given to West Ham (Trybull on Haller) and Burnley (Godfrey on Barnes) are two that instantly spring to mind. Admittedly we were already losing 2-0 in those games and they were both near the end of the match, so they didn't really change anything, but they were two obvious fouls that the VAR Didn't act on.

    To the "child"....

    Keeping the ball to slow the game down is a valid tactic, I agree. Throwing the ball onto the pitch to stop the game during play is not, and this is something we seriously need to nip in the bud before fans start getting ideas. And the fact that nobody saw it- players included- is exactly why play shouldn't have been stopped.

    To the "child"....

    Let's be honest, had an Arsenal fan lobbed a ball onto the pitch when Pukki was lining up his shot for the first goal and the referee disallowed it, we'd be absolutely furious. Idiots throwing balls onto the pitch in order to stop the game when their team is in danger shouldn't be rewarded, or teams/subs/fans would do it all the time and the game would become a farce. The ref was right to ignore it.

    Ratings v Arsenal

    I haven't seen anyone do this for a few weeks. Where did you see it?

    Who, outside of Norfolk, gives a toss about Norwich? Let's not kid ourselves here. More people in the UK care about Arsenal than Norwich. That's why they get more attention from the national media.
