  1. If he's good enough, he's tall enough.
  2. The second half was basically a farce. Absolutely pointless. Had it been a friendly, coaches would not have allowed it to carry on like that (like vs. Rubin Kazan in Austria a couple of seasons ago) .
  3. As the two reds had nothing to do with him, I'd vote for the latter.
  4. This completely fits all the ****e VAR decisions that went against us this season. It could have been an entertaining match, we looked bright and positive until Emi's red. Bearing in mind that this is a game is between two sides that have little to play for, I see the two sending offs even more pointless. Is this fun for anyone? If we'd send out the U23s for the next match, I couln't care less.
  5. Do clubs really need a new kit every season?
  6. Has anyone suggested top and bottom teams to decide promotion/relegation by playoffs against each other (instead of auto promotion/relegation)? It would make sense (at least to me).
  7. We just can't defend against crosses. When will we learn?
  8. This was Dean Ashton's home debut match after we bought him for a record fee of 3 million pounds from Crewe Alexandra. Sadly, he had a short spell with us, and his career ended at the age of 26 due to an injury during atraining session with England.
  9. What a silly goal to concede. Come on guys, dig in!
  10. Did anyone see the Norwich episode in BBC's Football stars in ugly cars series? (Perhaps it's still available on Iplayer.) The episode features Tim, Todd and Kenny. Krul has some really funny moments and one-liners in it. Comes though as a top guy.
  11. I take comfort from the fact that we have the toughest looking manager in the PL.
  12. If real games were to be cancelled, I propose the rest of the season should be played out on Playstation. Each club should sign either a top PS player (in which case big clubs would play astronomical sums to sign champions of virtual football) or the players should be picked from among regular team members. The lineup and tactics would be decided by the managers as they'd normally do. Games should be televised with panel discussions and interviews as normal, with perhaps even cuts to the manager in his area and (real) players on the subs' bench, only they'd take place in a safe, virus-free virtual environment. The points gained, however, would be real. Whadduya think?
  13. I don't think you mean it, - my first thought when I saw this was thank heavens I wasn't on that one.
  14. I don't see how wind could be a problem...
  15. The stop-start nature is what I find most annoying too. (I watched the game on local catch-up tv fast forwarding big sections, until the really exciting last quarter...) By comparison, in rugby they do brain surgery on the pitch without stopping the game, in nfl every losing possession involves at least five minutes of stoppage.
  16. I can believe we can do it, but I can't believe it would make any difference.
  17. Hughton managed to keep us up for a season, signing the wrong type of strikers for his second season was his biggest mistake.( Ironically, we signed three strikers who would have fitted a lot better in his system after he was sacked.) Nonetheless, even when he was sacked, we were four points clear of relegation.
