  1. Huh?!

    Gunn is off elsewhere

    I think we all need to remember that loaning a player isn''t exactly a cheap or ''free'' option nowadays. Most clubs ask for a fee to secure them for a year. The fact Angus has been involved with England this season and had a quite frankly outstanding season with us, I''d imagine Man Citeh will be asking for a much bigger fee this year - something we probably can''t or won''t afford.

    Sometimes there is more to it that just "choosing us over Leeds".
  2. Purely because anyone that isn''t Messi or Ronaldo Norwich fans moan. Not because of their name, age, race of gender.

    I guarantee if/when it''s announced Norwich fans will question the boards ambition and refusal to spend what they believe is a pocket of spare cash from the Pritchard transfers - much like every other link so far.
  3. Don''t you think if I knew his name I would say?!

    I''ve shared what I''ve been told which is a free transfer from Germany. That''s all I have to offer. They won''t tell me anymore than that.

  4. All I''ve been told is he''s recently played in Germany, but that doesn''t determine his nationality.

    I''m not doing it for bites or to claim I''m ITK. Just sharing what I know from a credible source.
  5. A signing is imminent, most likely to be confirmed later today. A striker (this one isn''t Srbeny) on a free transfer. Not sure fans will be very impressed.
  6. Huh?!

    Alex Tettey

    I''ve heard all the player affairs etc, but this is a first for me.

    This is direct from a friend at Colney (and no, I''m not making that up). Unless he''s on a wind up or someone has told him as a wind up...
  7. Huh?!

    Alex Tettey

    Rumour coming out of Colney this morning;

    Alex Tettey is in trouble. He sent a text message to what he thought was Alex Neil''s phone saying how unhappy he was with things at Norwich City. Turns out the club passed that phone on to Farke when he joined. Farke is unhappy receiving it.

    I have been told by a friend who works at Colney who is very reliable with information. *Don''t shoot the messenger*.
  8. Huh?!

    Ricky Martin....

    My issue with Ricky Martin is nobody knows what he does, yet he''s managed to earn himself about 5 internal promotions since he was in charge of the academy.... Nobody has even explained what he does or what his role is.

    He seems an arrogant character who clearly knew his job was safe, until now. I am very happy to see him leave. Webber is having a massive shake up which is fine by me.
  9. I suppose the phrase ''bad press'' wasn''t quite right. Perhaps criticism would have been better. I am not for one second saying he''s a terrible player or has been terrible all season, but is the praise justified without criticism of his common mistakes?!..

    Players like Pinto would suit a wing-back system, but I agree that fitness isn''t good enough. We''ve not looked as fit as we have in previous seasons imo.
  10. Is he actually as good as people make him out to be?! This season I have seen lots of praise for the lad, and some of it is justified. However, I may be in the minority who thinks he also deserves some bad press. I don''t think he''s as good as people think he is.

    His ability to take on a man and run the line is great. Fans love a player who does that, hence why most love him. But what else does he actually do?!

    His defensive ability is questionable and at times very poor. He never wins headers under pressure, mainly at the back post. We''ve conceded so many goals from his side this season it''s ridiculous.

    His final ball is terrible. For some of the positions he gets himself in to he should be doing so much better than he is.

    If you take away his main job of defending and also his final product, is he that good?! I''ve seen a lot of people saying he should be player of the season, but what for?

    Personal opinion and I await copious amounts of abuse from people. Good day!
  11. Huh?!

    Klose

    Right before the final whistle he was hobbling around after taking a knock. When the FT whistle went he was on his back stretching for a good 2/3 minutes and then made his way slowly around the pitch. I assumed he was trying to stretch whatever knock he had.

    I suggest no need to read in between the lines.
  12. Huh?!

    Net Worth Of Owners

    This isnt a post to say I want an owner like Cellino or similar, this was more in response to people complaining why we can''t compete.

    Grass isn''t always greener for sure, but for us to move forward as a club investment is a must. Unfortunate for us it seems the current board are happy as a promotion challenging Div 1 team.
  13. Huh?!

    Net Worth Of Owners

    So I''ve recently read both on here and Tw@tter a lot of people moaning that we are losing out on players or annoyed that we are selling in order to buy. Football is no longer about wanting to play for a single team due to their history, location in the country or the colour of the kit. Everything is about £££. As a football club we are consolidating as the chances of us being in this league for the next 2-5 years is extremely likely.

    It''s well known our owners are not the richest. Can we stop moaning about "losing out" to other clubs. The simple fact is that we cannot compete. Be realistic. We have to sell in order to buy.

    Let''s compare our finance''s to other teams in the league. It may shock you at how little we are worth and open your eyes as to why we don''t chuck money around;

    Brighton and Hove Albion + Tony Bloom; Reported in the billions

    Newcastle United + Mike Ashley: £2bn

    Reading + Narin Niruttinanon; Reported £400m

    Huddersfield Town + Dean Hoyle; £365m

    Leeds United + Massimo Cellino; £800m

    Sheffield Wednesday + Dejphon Chansiri; £700m

    Derby County + Mel Morris; £850m

    Fulham + Shahid Khan; £5.5bn

    Aston Villa + Tony Xia; £927m

    Wolverhampton Wanderers + Fosun Group; £450m

    Bristol City + Stephen Lansdown; £280m

    The reality is we are a small club in comparison to a number of teams in this league and we do not have the financial power to walk it. Delia''s love for the club is starting to drag us down. Investment is needed sooner rather than later.

  14. You cannot comment on his scoring record without first looking at what type of player he is...

    He''s not a fox in the box. He''s not a striker who will stand in the 18 yard area waiting for the ball to come to him and finish it top corner. He also isn''t a striker who just thrives off crosses all the time. He has a lot more to his game, and if you ask Palace fans about his performances before last year a lot will say he was very decent...! There are loads of strikers like him around who I''m sure you would piss your pants over.

    Saying his scoring record is terrible is a very naive way of looking at it. Before questioning that, look at what sort of striker he is. He can hold up play, allowing attacking MF''s to join in and even get in behind him. Something we currently do not have. How many times do we see Jerome run the channels, only for NOBODY to be in the box waiting....

    Before you slate, wait to see him. Before questioning his scoring ability, take actual facts about his playing style. To make some of you even more happy, I don''t think signing him is a bad thing. Much better option than Jerome Sinclair imho.
