    Bryan Gunn Sacking

    [quote user="NCFC_Shaun"]

    [quote user="kevin473"]I think that this has been an awful decision by the Board and , unfortunately, it appears that they have listened to the "supporters" instead of getting on with letting him do the job - so what his first match this season was a 7-1 home defeat, amends weere made with a 4-0 win at Yeovil from the same division, all teams will have a blip so he should have been given at least until the end of September to prove himself  or otherwise. I think this knee-jerk reaction to the defeat is absolutely horrendous. I am  so sad.[/quote]

     

    Oh for god sake. Gunn was absolutely useless. It''s an excellent bit of news so stop moaning.

    The thing that people are saying Shaun is that, yes, Gunn was not a popular choice. In my opinion he never should have got the job in the first place, and after Saturdays result he should have been sacked....but to let him carry on, get a good result against a difficult team and pull the players together.....only to be sacked a DAY before our next important league game is pretty shambolic!!!! They had the meeting on Saturday....he should have walked then........why wait alll week when the whole squad is together in Devon? its going to cause a rift in the squad you wait......he didn''t deserve that.

    I blame the midfield!

    Id agree with that........the defense lacked help and the forwards got no service

    [quote user="AndyJR"]No. He was silly for doing it and should grow up.

    normally I would agree BUT after the complete demise of this club in the last few years and the built up emotion following this shower of crap today...I don''t blame them......pity Gunn didn''t get one on the snout!

    [/quote]

    Agree with the first part, but the bit about attacking Gunn????  Come on, thats pathetic...

    maybe it was, I apologise.

  5. you know what? I seriously don''t know!! In my wildess nightmares I never saw this coming. After the Wigan game I had a renewed sense of hope and was looking forward to the season...........after all we had a team of our own players, were playing at home in front of 25,000 and were in the poorest league in 60 years..............then came our biggest home defeat in 100 years! I really do hope this was a total freak of a game......."one of those days"...........God I pray it is!

    A strange feeling

    great post as always
  7. I want to see her gone..................but, so many people were pleased with the new signings and had renewed optimism............then this happens and its her fault? I am fully aware that Delia and the board are in charge of selecting the manager and of late this has led to our demise.....she should have gone ages ago.......but to blame todays bad tactics, poor play and damn right shower of shit on her on game one is bad......

    she has to go, we all know that but today was down to the players and playing staff

    Grant Holt

    "Delia Out!"]

    Let''s face it, fair enough Holt worked hard, but there is no way he is worth £400,000!

    He is the most expensive league 1 player for this season and he needs to show it.

     

    with what service???

    Holts Apology

    I guess thats all we can do

    Holts Apology

    in a round about way, it just annoyed me that a brand new striker came out after his first game but our captain was no where to be seen (on and off the pitch!)
  13. Rum Ol Boy

    Holts Apology

    As captain of this club he is obligated to stand up and apologise for that shower of shit.......not a new boy
  14. I''l tell you what, I wouldn''t normally support fans like this but after the last few years of absolute misery and pisstaking by this club I don''t blame them one bit!! Many years of pain and hurt reaching a pinnacle like this today is totally understandable!!
  15. Rum Ol Boy

    Holts Apology

    The more I think about this the more annoyed I get......was Grant happening to be passing the RN journalists or was he the only player brave enough to come out? Personally, this really ticks me off..........I know not many players can escape critisicm but for me the front players got absolutely NO service what so ever. Holt is our newest player, and one that did what he could in a bad situation.........DOCHERTY on the otherhand was at the centre of the defensive shambles and is our bloody TEAM CAPTAIN!! where was he???!! it wasn''t up to our newest forward to apologise to the fans.....it was his duy to come out and face up!!!
  16. I really don''t know what to do with myself?? In all the years I''ve followed this club I''ve never felt this sick to my stomach!! I''m shellshocked
  17. [quote user="lincoln canary"]

    well this really hs p*ssed me off, what the hell is gunn playing at? firstly he has the pr skills of an 8 year old. On the eve off the new season he decides to tell the press he is going to struggle to keep hold of our star player? what a may to crush morale and optimism, what an idiot! secondly he is surely not thick enough to realise that if we dont keep hoolahan our chances of going back up are severly reduced but more probally eradicated?

    im sorry mr gunn but youve dropped a huge b*llock saying what you have done because my confidence for the new season has just taken a nose dive, but that b*llock will not be as big as the one you drop if you sell hoolahan.

    this crap has to stop, clingan & marshall have made good money to balance the books so we do not need to sell hoolahan. promotion is worth far more then the fee hoolahan will make.

    sort it out gunn and make sure wes goes nowhere

    thats what came to my mind. We all knew about the Palace interest weeks ago but nothing seems to have materialised.........so unless someone has inquired why advertise the fact??

    Idiots

    [quote user="Yelverton Yella"]I''m afraid that, in everyone''s best interests, he really should move on. I don''t know whether he has finally ''lost it'' but I just don''t think he can overcome his own over anxiety and the fan''s negativity at Norwich.

    I would like to see him move on, preferably out of L1, with our good wishes, to a club where he can make a fresh start with no preconceptions. Unfortunately I suspect, while he stays here, because he will be depressed that he is 3rd or 4th choice, his effect on the squad is likely to be negative rather than positive.
    [/quote]

     

    why would it be negative? if he comes on as sub and bangs a few in things may reshuffle.............Jamie has not made a fuss or put his parts on so I can''t see how he will have a negative effect. We need strength in depth, he adds experience to the front line.......Cody has had knocks and who''s to say we don''t pick up an injury or two?

  19. Rum Ol Boy

    Idiots

    [quote user="simon kingston"]But he is sh it and it needs to be done, why have him thinbk that we all like him really. He shouldn''t even be on the wage bill.[/quote]

     

    I think most people who know anything about football will agree that he will be an important squad player in this league.

  20. I agree, we will go behind but come back to draw 1-1
  21. it is nice to see positivity surrounding the rebuilding of the squad and the great results in preseason. We as Norfolk folk love a good moan........its in our genes! lol I defintely see a top eight finish
  22. Rum Ol Boy

    Over hype about the wigan game

    regarding the system, Gunn said on SSN that he employed a different approach to the game..........similar to the one we used versus Swansea last season. Martinez likes to pass the ball and I think we played the formation pretty well, if you look at Wigans goals, it wasn''t the system so much as BAD defending.
  23. Rum Ol Boy

    If We Lose To Colchester...?

    don''t get me wrong I''d be pretty annoyed if we lost but to be honest the club have exceeded my expectations this preseason............we have done away with loans and have created a good solid core of our own players, they need time to gel. I think we will get a good run out of this squad but its not going to go all our way......its a tough league
  24. it would be foolish to say we''ll run away with anythiing this season. We have rebuilt a good side but its going to be a scrap and a half to get out of this league.
