  1. Let's not get it twisted Alex; We all want us to do well, we all want us to get through to the next round and avoid relegation. Lakey never predicted we'd win, he never used any evidence or rationale as to why these two games would be any different to the majority of the previous 30. I share many of the positive beliefs he does, but he is a WUM - He strategically times posts when he knows most will be down and prods them with him stick, he knows exactly what he is doing, when hes doing it and thrives off it.
  2. What a game. What a night. Fantastic for almost all that game. Cantwell/Idah penalties were great. Timmys prep was superb. A game we should never have been losing, felt so comfortable. A game that showed us even when we go hell for leather, we can have some quality and create chances. A catalyst for Saturday? All eyes turn to Derby/Man Utd tomorrow.
  3. For the league game we ended in a cracking little Turkish pub/cafe; Brown Efes Draft and a Chicken Gyro.
  4. For the league game I used parkonmydrive, £6.80. Around 15 minute walk away. Walked passed a couple of industrial units that were doing parking for £20
  5. Useless from a 'throw in, in their final 3rd' however not useless when in our final third and turning defence into attack quickly.
  6. I'd argue its not VAR that saved us but actually the referee didnt apply the rules and hid behind VAR.
  7. I know what you're saying and its rigth but this is exactly why the rules/use of VAR just aren't working. How can a handball for defenders and attackers be different? How can it then only be handball if a goal is scored? How can it be handball if the ball goes literally millimetres from Godfrey onto Inechano? How can the referee be allowed to not make a decision based on the fact VAR will check it?
  8. It actually as though; Becuase its allowing referee's the opportunity to not make a decision. Last night 27,000 saw the ball hit Inechano's hand - at which point it's a free kick to Norwich. The referee allowed the game to go on, knowing if Inechano scored VAR would check/rule out. However, what if Krul tipps Inechano's shot wide and they score the from corner? Just to add, never in a million years is it actually a 'handball'.
  9. Which is one of the fundamental issues with the rules/VAR in its current form.
  10. We're at the least, throwing punches.
  11. Does nowhere near enough for a No. 10 That 10 role is so important to us, we can't afford to have someone in that role who isn't creating, pushing the burden onto Emi/Todd. His big chance tonight and with a goal gaping he could only hit straight at the goal keeper. Bournemouth aside I'm yet to watch him and think 'we've got a player here'
  12. We made a good side look very average. Felt fairly comfortable. Max, absolutley outstanding. We're 100% better off with Emi on the pitch. Duda not exsistent. Outstanding technique by Jamal for the goal. We certainally wasnt at our free flowing (though we've not seen that for sometime) best, but I'm buzzing with them 3 points.
  13. Absolutley - Lets not get it twisted, League position and Cup success defines Norwich's 'Best season' That doesnt necessarily mean its the fans favourite season.
  14. My favourite season without doubt is the Lge 1 season, probably pushed closed by last season. Both probably owing personally being able to get to lots of away games and the fact we pipped Leeds.
  15. De-valued it? Its literally the first achievement I list since our UEFA cup run.
  16. Apologies for going off top topic; I'll let you and Lakey spank my bum.
  17. Nah, obviously not. I said earlier in this thread, its impossible to have any expectation in the Championship. It's a lottery. Some really poor teams have gone up, some very good ones haven't.
  18. Massively unfortunate against them twice; Fingers crossed. Saturday, Tuesday, Thursday, Sunday - Be some week that.
  19. Let's not beat around the bush, you're a hypocritical, attention seeking, troll. I have no interest in engaging with you.
  20. We just have to accept we always have been, are and always will be well, very Norwich City. My first memories of NCFC are from the 92/93 season and the following UEFA cup run, but I wasn't old enough to appreciate it. Since then what achievements have I got to tell my theoretical son about? Beating Middlesbrough at Wembley? A couple of Promotions and a couple of whimpers back into the Premier League. Finishing tenth in the Premier League. We've had no cup runs, no special mangers, don't get me wrong I love Hucks and Holt but they're hardly players my son will be wow'd by. For a club of this size, that have been in the Premier League for the amount have time we have, we have massively under achieved. From the last 20 years; Are we any better off now than Leeds United? So we might have been in the Premier League a couple more seasons but realistically we have nothing more to show for the last 20 years than they have and just two years prior to that they were in a Champions League semi-final. Portsmouth have had some iconic players and won an FA Cup - imagine telling your son that, I was there when we won the FA Cup. Barnsley had an incredible cup run, beating Liverpool and Chelsea. Leicester have won the Premier League Burnley, Hull, Swansea, Wigan, Southampton, Millwall, Stoke, Fulham, Ipswich, Portsmouth, Bolton, Middlesbrough have all competed in Europe since we were. RvW is the most excited I've ever been about a NCFC signing. I'm fortunate enough to have done many things in life, however I suspect the No.1 item on top of my bucket list I'll never get to do and that's to travel away to watch Norwich in Europe with my Dad. Yes next year we will be could be cash rich, will we invest it Fulham/Villa style into player to get back in the Premier League, No. Should we bounce straight back into Premier League, will we invest heavily to compete, No. Call me selfish, but Norwich were here along time before me and will be a long time after me but whilst I'm here I'd love to be truly genuinely blown away by us, just once. We just have to accept our limitations, Yes there'll be some relative highs and lows but most of the time time we'll be well, Norwich City.
