    As i've said for the last 20 years

    Agreed. Like every other human they won't get it right all the time. Perhaps it was felt that any money that would have been spent wouldn't have improved the team enough to be warranted and seeing where improvements are needed in January was preferred. Injuries have now meant that has not turned out to be the case. For as long as we have a team giving it their all and playing for the manager I'll be 100% behind them all no matter where we finish this season. I think Uniteds poor form can cause expectations to rise a little too high and forget the calibre of players they are still able to put out against us. 3-1 loss but fighting till the end and while injuries are not the sole cause of our frustrations they are still there and as with Onel we can be optimistic for our key players return.

    You should see the match thread. Problem is 10 years without beating us and being consigned to league 1 has left a lot of pent up emotions down the road and they'll take every chance they can get. If you told me 12 months ago that would come in match threads where we lose at home to United on weekends when they're travelling to Southend I'd have bit your arm off

    Today's Match Thread

    Onel singlehandedly increasing my optimism tenfold.
  4. You may be right but you could argue this everywhere. The amount of times I see articles on the bbc where I think "this would never have been acceptable if you replaced X with y" is incredible. Take a non to serious example below https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.bbc.com/news/amp/blogs-trending-48278772 It's actually about men talking at council meetings but like OP BBC were quite happy to run the headline "men talk too much" the same gender much more likely to hide their emotions, not open up and talk to people and ultimately take their lives. As with your reply this wouldn't have been acceptable if used with any other group so why was it here? You never quite see the uproar when it's in the other direction..
  5. This has not been said. As TVB said the OP could have made his point better and the thread title is misleading. I don't think the commentary was the best last night when Lacazette missed a shot simply saying "And that's why he hasn't been getting in the team" was clearly pure guesswork and incorrect as in actual fact he has been out injured for nearly 2 months. It has nothing to do with gender though, I've never liked Michael Owen as as a commentator and Troy Deeney had a bit of a nightmare on Soccer Saturday a few weeks back but then again like the Carney last night these people don't have the years and years of experience that the others do. Least favourite has to be Jonathon Pearce though. Never forget his meltdown over goal line technology during the 2014 WC.

    Last nights consultation on membership

    Unless the plan is a long term one in which Phase 1 is extending the South stand (to house the city stand supporters) before rebuilding the city stand some time after?

    The Brexit Thread

    He did not get the deal approved he got it passed for second reading. In my opinion there will be those who voted for the second reading who will soon find reasons not to when the time comes.
  8. Directly following the paragraph OP has posted. "That contradicts previous comments from Canaries sporting director Stuart Webber, who has said that Pukki was one of the strikers under consideration when he was one of the recruitment chiefs at Wolves, before the striker went on to join Celtic in 2013." That's Incorrect by David Freezer. How does being offered a player by email (which i'm sure SW inbox is full of) suddenly mean he hadn't considered him previously. Maybe we didn't scout Buendia either he just turned up at the training ground Odemwingie style.

    Tettey

    This. Also unlike in that situation there isn't anyone else in the club even close to serving nearly as long as Tettey so it's a moot point.
  10. Good performance and the clean sheet will hopefully calm the panic regarding our defending. Positive result and a lot to look forward to as more come back from injury

    The Brexit Thread

    Fair enough. As for Macron I feel he may be saying "Non" while that deal is still in contention but as with Juncker I don't possibly imagine he'll say the same if faced with no deal

    The Brexit Thread

    It's never looked likely that there was going to be one in 2019. What odds did you get?
  13. ThorpeCanary

    The Brexit Thread

    I think I'd view it as him trying to put pressure on accepting what is a very good deal for the EU and would imagine he'd soon change his mind if faced with no deal and would therefore vote against it.
  14. So have your opinions on our owners changed at all since earlier in the thread? I can't pretend that the football or results we saw that first season were brilliant but like all teams our size who fall out of the premier League if you don't bounce back you'll soon have to reduce expenditure and it was that for me that afforded Farke breathing room I remember after the 1-1 at Portman road thinking that of the two teams when considering what was being developed and the age of our squad we had the brighter future of the two clubs. I could never pretend to predict what happened next though!

    Thanks. Makes sense for him to dismiss an extension when he's going full throttle for a deal. We'll see what happens later.
