  1. I think something as gone fundementally wrong behind the scenes.

    Using hindsight from that Friday night we started the season at Liverpool and;

    Evidenced by the fact that despite our poor form/results Farke can't/won't turn to Trybull/Leitner/Stepi/Hernandez/Vrancic.

    Evidenced by the fact that Krul (who hasnt done badly) is still our No.1 despite Farhmann being brought in to be No.1

    Evidenced by our most talented player, struggling to get minutes.

    Evidenced by the fact that Byram is somehow ahead of Lewis at LB.

    Evidenced by the Roberts and Amadou's loan, cut short.

    Evidenced by the fact a 42 year old Alex Tettey is the first name on the team sheet and Kenny McClean as a free pass to start everygame.

    Evidenced by the fact a unknown average German signed in Jan, somhow has been first choice for everygame since, likewide Duda appears to be undropable, despite anything other than a good 45 minutes.


    Wolves was just all too predictable, some little flashes of powederpuff and quickly dominated by a team in second gear, culminating in 3 soft goals.

    What I have found particulary frustrating is the 'possesion is key' message, its not. Wolves were ruthless yesterday breaking quick and turning attack to defence in in 2/3 very good passes, whilst we even at 1-0/2-0/3-0 down, we didn't increase our urgency and were happy to retain possesion, trying to move up the pitch nice and slowly.

    I work in horse racing so you could say that is my first sport and football is my second! 

    After those two I’d struggle to put them in order. I’m sports mad and love a punt. You can’t beat going to live events. The Cheltenham festival, Carrow Road, Wimbledon, lords, Trent bridge, European tour golf.  you can’t beat good sport being played live in front of you in a great atmosphere. Even better if you can bet the winner and fund your next trip!😜

    What do you do Hector?

  3. I alternate between Football and Horse Racing, usually depending on how well Norwich are doing.

    Aside from them Rugby League is the only other sport I'd say I was interested in.

    My job revolves around sport so keeping up to date with all mainstream sports is handy.

    I do try and watch he Superbowl every year and usually last around 15-20 minutes before turning off however I did last the whole match this year.

    I never claimed that my view was relevant, credible or carried any weight. It is just my opinion.

    But the fact that he doesn't get in the starting XI, or get on the pitch as a sub when we're losing on Saturday, suggests to me that I'm not alone in my opinion that he is not the answer.

    So, why do you think that is?


    I don't necessarily disagree, 

    But my point is quoting you've been watch football 60 years, means nothing.

    What a weird response to what is actually quite a heart felt op, once again labelled trolling or being negative. For goodness sakes grow up. It's not such a controversial idea after all. We're not scoring goals in outfield play - and the chief creators/strikers are not doing the business.  So what is the answer?  Replace them with players that have showed they at least as likely to do the business as the ones that have been on the pitch. It's not a negative idea either - it's called being pro-active and quite a positive move to make. 


    Honestly, just delete your Pinkun account, its so obvious that you are a troll/WUM/Attention Seeker/Parody account.

    I'll explain.

    After watching football for over 60 years I have seen hundreds of wingers like Hernandez.

    They can usually run quickly and several of them, including Hernandez, have a decent shot in their locker.

    And as far as positives go, that's it.

    Most of them, including Hernandez, flatter the deceive most of the time.

    They run down the wing at break neck speed and then they haven't go a clue what they are going to do when they get near to the business end of the run.

    They have no awareness of where other teammates are and end up either losing the ball or getting rid of it as quickly as possible, usually to an opponent.

    Hernandez goes round & round in circles and ends up falling over himself and then looks totally bemused as to why he hasn't won a free kick.

    As for his defensive qualities, quite honestly he is a liabilty.


    Love this...

    So what, my mum's been watching football for 60 years, doesn't mean your opinion is anymore relevant, credible or carry any weight.

    Oh and on the MOTD coverage thing.

    I really couldn't care less what a bunch of overpaid, former footballers who are well past their glory days think about us or our team. It's totally inconsequential imo. I never watch it.

    Besides, those of you who have already given up seem to be the ones moaning for the most part which makes even less sense as you seemingly already know you won't have to put up with it next season. Well, good on you.

    You don't have to watch MOTD. Plenty of other ways of watching highlights out there, including our very own YT channel.

    3 days later.

    When you've been to the game and esecially at St James, you cant always tell what happened.  God forbid the late night highlight show, would show, you know, the highlights.

    That would make programming very long some weeks, they've got a limited amount of time to work with.

    If West Ham - Brighton is 3-3, and Everton - Watford is 3-2, and Leicester - Chelsea is 2-2, and Liverpool - Southampton is 4-0.

    How much coverage of a 0-0 draw can we expect? 

    Also, why do you want the nation to see that we fluffed all of our chances and couldn't score in a brothel? Is that a source of pride? 

    What if the Liverpool/Man City 0-0 has five men sent off, three goals disallowed, four contentious VAR reviews?

    How much coverage can you expect of a 0-0 draw between two bottom half teams.... when there were so many goals elsewhere yesterday? 23 to be precise. 

    All relevant chances, tbh.

    It was a 0 0 draw! So was the Man Utd match!  Rightly both matches were near the end of the program as every other match had something to show and analyze, including the now famous incompetence of referee Simon Hooper!

    What is there to say about Pukki and a “one on one” other than he should have scored, Cantwell’s potential penalty, McCleans header and Hernandez late chance.

    Absolutely nothing, it was a 0 0 draw!


    Im honestly not bothered where we are in the line up, nor do I want them to say anything about the chances but I do want to bloody see them. 

    Although the vantage point at St James is fantastic it's hard to see the nitty gritty, Cantwells penalty for instance looked stonewall. 

    The inconsistency is also rediculous, why show Pukki's left foot half volley that was probably going over anyway and not show him racing clear 1 on 1 with the keeper. 

  11. Dreadful coverage.

    Completely missed out;

    Pukki's 1 on 1. 

    Cantwells potential Pen. 

    Kenny's near post header. 

    Hernandez chance in last second. 


    Somehow managed to make them. Look the better side, unbelievable.

    No I'm not. Do you think Pukki is in good form right now? Is he undroppable?


    Yes, simply because we dont have anyone to replace him.

    It should also be noted that his work rate and link up play as been very good.


    Its alright being cool on the internet saying "Yeah, I'd drop Pukki for Drmic" realistically if it was your decision, you wouldn't.


    As for subs, I'm not sure too much more of what he can do in a game where we are dominating? He obviously doesnt really fancy Hernandez and thank god he didnt bring Emi on any earlier.

    No. But The club obviously did. Personally I had no idea how he'd turn out (though as always I hoped for the best).


    That's not strictly how it works;

    We were desperate and spent £9 Mill on a player who it was highly unlikely we'd be able to recoup any money back on.

    So much rubbish on this thread.

    You think RvW was regarded as a bad investment when we bought him? Naismith?

    Maddison & Ashton were good - but neither were guaranteed successes (except with the gift of hindsight that so many people seem to have). And they're exactly the sort of player we're trying to sign now; players who are unproven, young & with the potential to fit in with our playing style. There'll be the occasional Rupp type player, but he won't be looking for the big money that established 'proven' players will be. The only way you're going to attract such players is to pay exorbitant wages, as I'm afraid that would be their only incentive to come to Carrow Road.

    And, for a club with as little resource as ours, that is the road to ruin.


    Wait, you think £9 Mill for a 29 year old Naismith was a good investment?

  15. Its clear were planning for next season rather than rolling the dice for this season;

    There's no way Aarons, Lewis, Godfrey, or Cantwell will be here if we go down.

    Buendia is the one we could hold out for big money on and perhaps make him spend one more year with us.

    Surely Pukki as to go too along with Drmic.


    A midfield consisting of Trybull, Steip, Leitner, Setti, McClean, Tettey would be enough.

    Rupp, Hernandez, Sinani - would be enough too.

    Actually think Byram would flourish at RB and Hanley, Klose are proven Championship centre halves.

    We would have to replace Pukki's goals.

    And looking at that team there's not much sale-able value,

    The cash cow would have been milked dry.
