  1. C'mon , be honest , R u enjoying a ride where you just can't buy a win despite playing decently at times? 4 wins in 27 , goal difference of -27 ? Not a single back to back victory... I'm very sorry to be down in the dumps about that... yet I feel there are a lot of Canary fans around me that are just as disappointed. Or do you expect fans to be jumping for joy about it? I'm going to the Sheffield United game and I will be supporting my team . But I will be disappointed and silenced for a while if we let in a tenth minute goal because we yet again lacked some power in midfield and it is blatant to see that our defense is not good enough for the PL... I feel that's human and normal for a fan that wants his club to stay in the league...isn't it? Rob

    3 points against Leicester?

    Well, respect for Alex ... he'll be part of our Championship side next season , I'm sure , I hope Rupp isn't though!

    Did you really expect us to do well

    Completely agree , the defensive frailties were clear to be seen last season ! I lost a lot of belief when we started the season without any significant signings and then the injuries came... I remained hopeful , but if I am honest I saw relegation as the only possible outcome at the beginning of December, or even before... Maybe this club has not the means nor the guts once it's promoted to the Premier League... In this case I would say it's just the means , because I think Webber and his team have the guts. Down we go again it seems , well here's hoping we've got a better plan next time we are promoted .

    Agreed, but his confidence is shot , just like that of other players... You can see that the team just doesn't believe they're going to win anymore...

    I admire the optimism of the LDC's in this world , but I join those that say we still haven't got a settled 11 and our midfield is not up to the PL , neither is our defense ... I just can't see our team beating Leicester, because of the goals we keep giving away. We look so fragile each weekend it's frightening. I agree that a win would restore some belief , but it 's mighty hard to see where the win is going to come from... After yesterday's performance I feel an apology by the players would not be out of place tbh

    Massively over-rated

    I can't argue with OP tbh...yet in their defense , they have not had all the breaks either have they? We've had some darn bad luck over the course of the first few months too. An injury crisis will upset a squad that hasn't been added to. Our defense was frail in the Championship , so losing players like Klose and Zimmermann was a turning point too. As they were the best we had. I am still bitter about that , but we didn't add to the squad and what we needed to add was quality defensive cover imo. I don't blame Farke too much , he's made mistakes too but he has not been backed and I don't think it would be fair to turn on him. Yesterday I saw a post on here claiming that fans were revelling in our defeat, which is something I cannot believe. Many Norwich City fans are very disappointed but they will not revel in defeat. We have a loyal fan base , I am sure there would be more booing and turning on the board at other clubs by now!!!! I am looking at next season now , in the Championship , which will be a very tough proposition which we all know. Losing is a bad habit and it will be a lot tougher because of how this season went! We might have the quality , but mentally we will have had a real bash which will be difficult to overcome imo OTBC

    Webber interview

    This , I don't think that would be the way to be a "top 26 " English club would it? I am not a fan of paying silly money , but you will have to pay up if you want to sign a good player... even if he's young and playing for a league one club say...

    What's you second sport?

    Cricket - NFL (Bills fan) - Rugby , in that order

    Man City and the likes

    Couldn't have put it better! But they have the financial power not to get stung... I mean the influence clubs like Real Madrid etc. have on the corrupt FIFA/UEFA is massive... As I have said in other threads , my interest in NCFC will always be there , but my interest for football in general has declined because of the money...

    Very good read ! It contains all the facts about the money infested sport of football...

    The difference

    Thanks for this , very interesting read and it sums up why my interest in the game in general is "diminishing" . I am a NCFC supporter for life and I go to their games as much as I can , but the state of football in general is not good imo. I find myself watching, following more and more other sports. My son has started doing athletics recently , a few years ago I would have done much more to convince him to start and play football.

    The difference

    Do you think they would have signed Drmic or Roberts or even Amadou if they would have had 50 m £ at their disposal? Fahrmann is not a bad GK imo
  22. ROBFLECK

    The difference

    Well I agree on the bit about Wilder. I don't like the bloke really, but he's done a great job. I too feel we should have spent more ,but the comparison is not really on imo . There are so many examples of clubs where it went pear shaped even after spending money. I feel Farke & Webber should have been backed, because I have faith in them getting the right guys in. Sheff U have had luck with the injuries and they have a good manager , ... but I don't think Webber or Farke would have signed a player like McBurnie , certainly not for that kind of money.
  23. Stoppage time equalisers or winners ! I still can't get over it , when I think of Vrancic's free kick last season against Sheffield Wednesday! Away from home it tastes sweet to see the stunned faces of the home fans... something I loved about last season...

    Top 26

    This is my opinion too! I don't think you have to splash out 25 million on just one player ! But you have to have depth in your squad at least to have a chance at this level imo. We didn't get off to a very bad start, but the injury crisis "paralysed us" because we didn't have sufficient back up or quality. I am convinced that one or two good signings would have made a big impact. I think this was a big mistake and it will cost us our place in this division. Like I said earlier , to be top 26 in the country we will have to finish top six next season , which will not be easy by any means! The "ambition" to be top 26 , might come back to haunt us...

    Top 26

    You sound like you're part of the Burnley FC set up , inside knowledge? I assume (not want) that you completely agree with the way we went about things ...
