    Hooper done deal

    [quote user="Bethnal Yellow and Green"]

    [quote user="The Chirp"][quote user="Jimmy Smith"]still 2-1 at the bookies, get your house on it! Ruddy to Chelsea is also 2-1...[/quote]About a week ago, I was told that Chelsea offered Norwich £3m for Ruddy. I don''t see him going there - Arsenal might be a different story. There were interested up to the point of him getting injured. I think Hooper will happen - would have rathered we had gone arfter Cardiff''s newbie Cornelius. [/quote]

    Ruddy won''t go to Arsenal, and they have never been interested. Wenger like keepers who are comfortable with the ball at their feet, quick off thier line and have good distribution - I''d say those are the 3 weakest parts of John Ruddy''s game.

    [/quote]They have been interested in him. I agree with what you say about his distribution - but I would imagine it is his command of the box/handling/positioning that have got their interest.

    Hooper done deal

    [quote user="Alex "]You can take this or leave it, but in the last 2 weeks I''ve started working with a cousin (surprise surprise!) Of one of Arsene Wengers right hand men at Arsenal. As he was going to see his cousin on Sunday I asked him jokingly if he could find out any truth in the rumour that Wenger rates Ruddy - the answer I got back was ''Arsene does but a move for him is nonsense, complete press speculation - he wouldn''t take a gamble on a player he thinks is a good keeper but injury prone''. As I say you can take it or leave it, from memory I personally wasn''t aware of JR having any injuries prior to last season though but there you go. He also said Arteta is likely to go to Hull, and Vermaelen is a done deal with AS Roma.[/quote]The day Ruddy got injured, the chief exec of Arsenal made contact to find out how long he''d be out for. I would say Arsene is more than a little bit interested in him. Whether he will actually move for him I guess we will have to wait and see. Personally, I think he is perfect for Arsenal. A David Seaman-style keeper. Keeps it simple.

    Jed Steer off to Villa

    Although Steer is undoubtedly as good prospect, he was a long way off playing for Norwich or even being a regular on the bench. With his wages off the bill, I would imagine they will now go to one or two of the youth cup winners who''ll get a full time pro deal.

    [quote user="Jacko"]Most autobiographies are in fact ghosted Chops. So that isn''t unusual at all. Fingers crossed there is a book coming out and preferably about someone who was at Norwich for a long time so had a good story to tell about the club during that period . I didn''t buy Sutton''s book because he just wasn''t at Norwich long enough for it to appeal to me (as good as a player as he was).[/quote]It''s a player most Norwich fans will be keen to read about - even Mr Chops!

    You write a biography.

    The player in question would write an autobiography.

    I think,now you got me confused[:S]

    [/quote]A biography is written about a person by someone else. An autobiography is written by the person the story is about. However, many people have someone else to help write the story for them. See Darren Huckerby, Bryan Gunn and Iwan Roberts'' autobiographies as examples. In the same sense, every column you read is likely to be written with the help of a journalist.

    [quote user="The Chirp"]Thank you Rootin - Greatly appreciated. Mr Chops - i''ll bite on this - what makes you think I am not writing an autobiography?[/quote]

    Clearly Chirp you have no idea what an autobiography is.

    [/quote]See my reply to someone else who is just as pathetic as you. I simply asked a question as I needed help on some research. Silly thing to do on here as I forgot that many of the posters here have nothing better to do in their lives than to find potential fault and argue the sky isn''t blue. I am a journalist who is ghostwriting an autobiography - or helping to write a footballer''s story. Can you understand that or does that not compute with you? Pinkun keyboard warriors... you''ve got to love them!

    I think the clue is in the 10th word of the OP

     

     

    [/quote]This is why i rarely post on this mb - the people on this messageboard are so... difficult. If you browse your collection of autobiographies, I am quite sure you will find they are often written by someone else rather than the person who the book is about. .

    Autobiography help required

    Hi,I am in the process of writing an autobiography for an ex-Norwich player and was wondering if any of you could help with the following information.Appearances and goals for the 93/94 seasonTeams for Norwich vs Vitesse (inc subs and time they came on) Norwich vs Bayern Munich (inc subs and time they came on)Currently, I cannot reveal the player in question, but if anyone can help with the above, it''d be greatly appreciated.

    Sam Baldock & Dani Pacheco

    Baldock has the same agent as Butterfield, Ruddy and Ward so I would imagine if Sam''s available, the agent would have at the very least mention this to Norwich. He''s not a bad player, but no better than what we already have.
  13. Pretty sure Snoddy will be used as a second striker or like how Lavanche has him as part of an attacking midfield 5. Will be very surprised to see Howson or Pilks move. 
  14. He''s a good manager - one that if we were in the champ, I''d be very happy if we appointed him.

  15. [quote user="I am a Banana"]

    When we sent Korey Smith out to Barnsley on loan for the 2nd half of the season, this was to give them extra midfield cover whilst Butterfield was out injured. Lambert knew he was out of contract and made that part of the loan deal, to get Butterfield here this summer.

    Lambert couldn''t get him at Villa as he had already signed for us. - Answer to the ''Why didn''t Lambert take him to villa'' question.

    [/quote]Sorry this isn''t true. I know his agent through my editor and this deal came recently.
