    The Championship 15-16

    The Championship is 100% one of the most difficult leagues to predict, however this would be my top 6...

    C) Derby

    P) Middlesborough

    PO) Hull City

    PO) Burnley

    PO) Bolton

    PO) Blackburn

    Got a feeling Brentford will lose their core set of players and with Pritchard going back to his parent club, I can''t see them repeating last seasons form. The remaining relegated team won''t bounce back again, QPR will finish mid table.

    Relegated...

    Huddersfield/Rotherham/Sheffield Wednesday

    What position and where did you play?

    My first memory of playing football is for Horsford Youth in the early 2000''s. Started off out field then moved on to be a keeper for a few years. Didn''t make the squads for Horsford Youth for a few years and then a new club in Horsford was started (Horsford All Saints) so I joined them for a season in 06/07 as a Striker/Attacking Mid. Moved house to Sprowston, so played for Sprowston 07/08. 08/09 I took a break from football because I just wasn''t getting the game time (main rule of being a striker from my experience at youth level is if you don''t score a hat-full every game you sit on the bench. An ethos I totally go against as a coach). Then in my final year at youth level in the 09/10 season I played for Old Catton which was probably my best season at a youth club due to the fact that it was a laugh and I got a fair bit of game time. I wasn''t the best player by a long shot, but in my opinion I never got many opportunities right from a young age and always tried 100%. Since youth level i''ve completed my basic refereeing course and level 1 coaching badge and until recently helped run a club at Horsford Youth which I had to give up due to moving away for work. The negatives from my experience is that I was never really given a chance, the positives are that I think it has allowed me to be more empathetic towards players that aren''t the best and has improved me as a coach.

    Time To Gel?

    Seeing this phrase, ''time to gel'' or ''time to bed in'' quite a bit on this message board but I for one disagree.It seems to me that its a kind of excuse for new players that come into the team and a positive spin to put on a more negative start (admittedly 1 game) to the season and performances. The main let down last Saturday was the defence and 3 of them have been here a while and have well and truly ''bedded in''. In my opinion, the Premier League is an unforgiving league and there is no way that we can be signing players and then giving them competitive games to ''bed in''. If it takes them 5 games to gel, that is a possible 15 points lost to ''gelling''. These players play together every day and should know what each other is about, we can''t afford for players to not be ready to play to the standard expected of them, they need to be hitting the ground running, not ''bedding in''. That is what has done us so well in previous seasons with players like Crofts, Pilkington and Howson making immediate impacts after signing for us. I for one want to see players such as Snodgrass, Turner, Bassong and the likes integrating well. After all, they are all professionals. Bring on tomorrow and hopefully Snodgrass gets a hat-rick.OTBC

    FIFA 13 Custom Cover

    Thanks for the constructive criticism. In terms of the low res images, I know that they look a bit rubbish but there aren''t that many high res images with the new kit that aren''t of Holt, so just tried to make the best of a bad situation. It''s only a first attempt really, so when the new season starts i''m sure there''ll be better high res images, hopefully of Ruddy and Hoolahan because that''s who I ideally want for the cover. Thanks again for the words of wisdom above.

    FIFA 13 Custom Cover

    Used the current FIFA 13 cover and removed messi, added holt/martin/jackson using pictures from the web. Used Photoshop to do it all.

    FIFA 13 Custom Cover

    Got a bit bored this afternoon so decided to make a custom cover. Relatively pleased with it so thought i would share it with my fellow Norwich City fans.[URL=http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/811/fifa13customcover.jpg/][IMG]http://img811.imageshack.us/img811/1053/fifa13customcover.jpg[/IMG][/URL]

    How do I stop emails to my inbox

    At the top of the post you posted to there will be an icon that says "notify" with a bell next to it. This should be ''lit up''. Click it and it will be greyed out and you will no longer receive emails.

    New away kit. What colour?

    Surprised Browno hasn''t leaked it yet tbh. For me though its got to be blue and white halves. Bit of a retro feel.

    Holt Saga

    I was also thinking this. My heart says that Holty has seen Hughton coming in as good enough reason to stay on and push on for next season. Although, my head says this is the quiet before the storm and we are waiting for the right offer to come in before we let him go, after all every man has his price.

    Off-side help!

    Effectively, no he is not offside and the goal should rightly count because we are talking about 2 separate phases of play. The first being the through ball over the top and the second being the square ball for the goal.

    As referee''s we''re told to remember the acronym P.I.G. P - does the player ''P''lay the ball?, I - does the player ''I''nterfere with an opponent?, G - does the player ''G''ain an advantage. If the answer to P & I are no then the player can''t be gaining an advantage in that phase of play, therefore cannot be offside.

    As we see in the first phase of play, the ball is played through and Navas is clearly in an offside position but is not guilty of an offside offense according to PIG.

    In the second phase of play, he is not in an offside position, therefore cannot be penalised for an offside offence and puts the spanish ahead.

    Must say well played to the lino, it would have been very easy to put the flag up and have everyone say fair enough, but he has got the decision bang on.

    Hope this has helped :)
