  1. Lovely insights throughout the thread Parma, thank you. However, does your OP not overlook the possibility that AN will take the line that you cannot force a move and so will not sell? If his message to players has been that either you get on board or you get to train with the youth squad in the past then the what happened this past week will be the one thing that ensures Grabban will not be sold.
  2. I was watching that game and the commentator said something about the new rule regarding overhead kicks didn''t apply... Was that a sarcastic remark or is there some directive this season I hadn''t heard about???
  3. Interesting line from AN in the front page article I thought.
  4. From watching on TV it seemed to me that we struggled to contain them, particularly Shakiri in the first half. He made Brady look very ordinary going forward and weak defensively. Tettey always looked half an inch off a yellow but we worked hard, fought well and just about deserved to be level at half time. I have no idea how he did it but AN must have given one hell of a team talk because after half time we were quicker, more creative, more confident and at times just plain outstanding, finding holes that weren''t there in the first and making space all over. Shakiri vs Brady was a 180 switch in the second half. Hoolahan was the best I''ve ever seen him today, Howson looked good, Dorans was dangerous, Redmond was slippery and seemed to have tighter control of the ball and when BJ came on he looked like last years POTS again! There can be no argument that Butland was man of the match as without him it could have been 4 or 5 by the end. I would struggle to pick anyone for Norwich as there was not one weak performance... Some moments in the first half (Ruddy, Bassong, Tettey, Brady all made mistakes of varying severity) but overall it was a wonderful display. We do need a striker and a center back... But on today''s performance we need them as cover. I worry if Jerome gets injured.
  5. Hooper is a lot better than Griffiths and I''m not a big fan of Hooper.
  6. Antonio as a straight swap for Grabban would be coup if that were an option!
  7. From this game I drew three conclusions. Villa will struggle but survive. Man Utd will be around 6th place this season and Rooney will move next summer. I''m glad we didn''t buy Gestede. He will get a few goals but looks very limited if the ball is on the ground. Not as good as Jerome.
  8. 12 in 2 seasons is not enough to be considered an improvement on what we have
  9. [quote user="chuggs"]So does anyone think they know who it will be, did gayle get on team bus after game ? Also Parish turned up to game today with his briefcase, is there a deal being sorted with Gayle apparently a rumour from the training ground is that his name is being highly spoken about.[/quote] I like Gayle, but he is not what we need in my opinion. Not convinced he is better than hooper, RVW or Jerome
  10. Not sure if it was Martin or Whits but whoever was on the post shouldn''t have been off it when the ball came back for the second. Terrible marking before that but it was only a goal because of TWO defensive errors. The first was Brady being out of position that cost us... the disallowed goal and penalty were shocking, and why they weren''t down to 10 in the first 10 minutes is a bit of a mystery! Russ Martin... Generally ok today I thought but Bassong worried me a few times!
  11. Grabban is no striker and Brady is no left back. Team doesn''t look too bad but Jerome and Redmond need to be on the pitch if we are to get anything from this.
  12. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA... It looks like they went for the MegaDrive version!
  13. In case anyone didn''t see this... Much better read than most of the UK season preview pieces I''ve read on us. http://sportsworld.nbcsports.com/norwich-city-alex-neil-premier-league-aspirations/
  14. To answer the OP at face value... Stadium MK. It is based on Benfica stadium of light and City of Manchester stadium and is a really well thought out stadium. Capable of international football and rugby.
