    Terrible

    Confidence is a huge factor and unfortunately conceding after 1 minute knocked the stuffing out of us. We didn't play horrendously badly, but you're never going to score playing like we did in the second half tonight

    Self inflicted defeat

    You can't win a football match without scoring goals and we could have played until tomorrow afternoon without scoring. We're going to concede goals in this league, we conceded a lot last season, but we scored enough so it didn't matter. Now the goals have dried up we're just going backwards. Farke has his first big test to turn this form around after the international break
  3. Confidence plays a big part and Watford happily sat deep on a one goal lead thanks to our excellent start. You'd have taken 0-0 at half time. I do genuinely think we'll do better with a proper defence back in place after the break but the lack of goals is certainly a worry. Even against ten men tonight we never really looked like scoring. Buendia is out of sorts, Steipermann has yet to weigh in with any product and despite all the Huff and puff Hernandez has yet to deliver a killer ball. Maybe like last season something will click and the form will come but sadly I think we've just missed two golden opportunities to get 6 points on the board and in the premier League they don't come about often. Still a lot to play for at this stage, but we're certainly not helping ourselves at the moment and Farke has his first real challenge on his hands to turn a period of shockingly poor form into the success we enjoyed last season

    Steve Morison Retires.

    His personality and body language did him no favours but he actually did well in his time here. Problem is he never looked like he was giving 100%, and that's why people criticized him.

    Tettey and Trybull

    Tettey was perhaps an unsung hero from our Man City result, his experience is worth a lot in this city side. Will be good to see both him and Tom back in contention

    Raggett

    He can't go into our first team squad even if he is recalled. If he was good enough he'd be here

    Alex Neil

    Wish him and Preston all the best, really liked him during his time here and that promotion season was a lot of good fun and we played entertaining football.

    We've just f'cked it up.

    There’s nothing wrong with operating the way we have done, it’s great for business and earned us a crack at the prem. unfortunately, these things do come back to bite you in the **** sometimes, and really our only downfall at present is that we didn’t invest in another CB this summer. Having said that, with Godfrey, Klose, Zimmerman, Hanley and then Amadou to call upon if required, if all 5 were fit you’d be very happy wouldn’t you? ho hum!

    UEA

    I also went to the UEA and would highly recommend it. Even since I left 5 years ago a lot has improved (new and improved accommodation and facilities, a new on campus shop, new teaching facilities etc). My sister also went there to do her teaching course and also thoroughly enjoyed her time there. Don’t worry about the distance from the centre, many other universities are far worse, I used to regularly do the trip to the train station most weekends and never had any hassle as the busses are every 10 minutes and also stop right outside Morrison’s so you can do your weekly shop their if you wish, and you can purchase a student bus pass which gives you a years worth of unlimited travel for £150 or £200 quid or whatever it was. social life is great and the uni has its own on site club nights at the campus, plus it also owns and runs The Waterfront riverside so there’s always plenty going on, plus a decent number of comedy acts and bands visiting throughout the year to both venues. Norwich is a lovely city with lots to do and explore. if you have any direct questions feel free got ask, it’s nice to waffle but might not directly answer her questions!

    MOTD

    Our style is central around playing it out from the back. Hoofing it up to Pukki certainly won’t work. The issue yesterday is that our passing was poor, our decision making was poor and sadly our defending was atrocious. We weren’t getting tight enough to them, especially as soon as we lost the ball. Their 4th and 5th, whilst good finishes, were given far too much time to make a decision and execute it. We shouldn’t be giving teams that much time and space that close to our goal. Not having a defensive midfielder, whilst not the only source of our problems, is criminal. You cannot get away with it at this level, and yesterdays score was a brutal reminder that you’ve got to be tight, and you’ve got to be clinical. We failed massively at both of those things. Villa were good to a point, but we were very, very poor
  11. We have to prove to the national teams that the players aren’t fit enough to play and need a rest. Godfrey is one of those. It’s hard to tell with the others as obviously we have no knowledge of the severity of these injuries
  12. AJ

    Feeling even more positive now

    There will be some players given the chance to prove themselves today. Let’s hope they put in a shift!

    How many will man city get

    3 or 4 I'd take, let's keep that GD down as our might be needed. But with our defensive woes with injuries I'm expecting it to be 5 or 6
  14. Wow, genuinely concerned about our chances of staying up, although it does raise questions about why we didn't sign another CB if we knew Klose and Zimmerman weren't going to make the season start. Absolute nightmare. And after 2 weeks supposed rest. Gulp.
