  1. Never seems to get a mention. I know he was been played next to either amadou or tettey this season, but for me he gets bullied far to easily every week and seems so static in his defending. Much like the team he started well, but I thought he had a bit of grit and steel about him to shine through in tough times. Maybe it would have been a different story if he had zimmerman next to him all season. Who knows. Andre grays goal was a prime example of the ball waching, didn't close the space or get physical or get across for the block, similar at Burnley and Brighton and at home to villa. Lewis looked shot to pieces in terms of confidence on Friday, maybe needs to be taken out of the team for a few games similar to cantwell last season, I think he is really suffering more than most. problem is we do not have a replacement good enough, due to the lack of transfer activity. I do think (hope) things will change but we need a lucky break sooner rather than later because I can't see us playing anyone off the park at the moment.

    "We were not physical enough" - Farke

    Completely agree with Farke, from kick off it looked like we sat so deep and invited man united to build confidence from the off. Where was the fast start up and at'em approach? far too much respect was shown, man united were there for the taking and could have been got at, instead we sat back, so frustrating to watch and the crowd picked up on that. We cant defend, lets go at these teams at home.

    I'm not really sure where this leaves Leitner now, since that Newcastle game it hasn't really worked for him (I'm a big fan btw) Bags of swagger talent and style, but he is possibly the slowest player I have seen with or without the ball, very weak in the tackle and doesn't really add much other than making things 'tick over', lacks the dynamism IMO. Agility and pace in this league is key, clearly in this league, he has not got the attributes to be playing in the No. 10 role. Steiperman offers far move movement across the lines in that position, yes he has been poor and plays a risky game, but Cantwell and especially Beundia of late have been just as bad if not worse.
  4. Kenny mclean has been a huge plus since he has been in the team, again yesterday another assist, the corner to make it 2-1 against reading for example, goal against rotherham etc etc etc. People dont understand him just because he has a no frills approach to his game, he does things fairly simple and goes about his business in a calm way. Not sure of the stats but he has affected the game in every game he has played near enough. I agree Vrancic and or Leitner should be in the team, but you cant drop Mclean. Steiperman and Hernandez have been poor recently, they need a kick up the back side.

    How utterly poor was Tod Cantwell today

    This thread is embarrassing on so many levels. The lad is very young and he is no Buendia, so stop comparing him to him and expecting the same performance from him. Surely people should focus on Hernandez or Steiperman if you are going to criticise, players who clearly have shown better this season and we have carried them in the last two games. They have been terrible and should be showing so much more in at this crucial stage of the season to get us over the line. get a grip and support the young players, we are going up.

    I've heard all the arguements

    Totally see where you are coming from ''the judge''.

    Mbokani certainly splits opinions, in terms of a ''striker'', id class that as a goal scorer, a number 9, a gary hooper type player yes.

    With our 3 at the back system and forward players supporting the lone striker I think that system lends itself to play our best finisher / goal scorer Mbokani, also knowing he will likely flick on the majority or headers that he''s challenging for which in turn allows the supporting players to make that run with abit more belief that the ball will find them. we can easily get away with playing someone who maybe doesn''t run and stretch the defence with that system IMO, he doesn''t miss sitters

    I've heard all the arguements

    Mbokani, at the moment is our best striker at the club, bamford is un proven, yes he''s what some people see as a ''goalscorer'' but didn''t pull up any trees at all with palace and looked out of his depth and lightweight. Jerome is just hopeless as a striker, how many chances has he missed that my Nan would have scored this season, its getting embarrassing.

    When we play Mbokani, I get so angry mainly due to our persistent need to keep p*ssing around with the ball between centre backs, 5 pointless passes we lump it up to him and 9/10he gets something on it. He movement is really good if you watch him closely, always in a good position but the problem is no one gets their head up, we are so resistant to play the early pass, Hoolahan holds onto the ball for two long etc. Take the game against Chelsea for example, the amount of times Pinto bombed forward and all it needed was a 40 yard pass to him or a early ball and he was on for an attack, what happened was the complete opposite.

    I seriously think we need to start going a bit route one, we haven''t got the players to pass round premier league teams and score a lovely goal, its happened a few times I know but not enough to keep persisting with it, although Alex Neil does like to persist with strategies that wont, don''t and will never work at this level.

    Its been possibly the most frustrating season so far, and if I''m honest, I think we are good as gone. I hope not.

    Transfer window Janauary 2016

    I''d love to see the back of Redmond in this window, if we could get around 8 million I would drive him there.

    He has been here to long without improving or finding any kind of consistency, his time is up in my opinion (and many other Norwich fans).

    The most infuriating player since Jon Otsemobor.

    Timm Klose

    unbelievable  signing if we get this over the line, why he would want to come here considering he was the best centre back for wolf''s burg last year I do not know but more than happy. since Dante signed he''s been on the bench. girlfriend is German and her father is a big fan of this guy, although hes a schalke fan. left footed centre half, powerful and scores the odd goal, class player. get this done and and striker or two, I think it would be an did good transfer window. .. for fora change.

    ALBERT ADOMAH wants to leave Boro

    Now this is someone I would like to see, very direct and a beast last year in the championshiphttp://www.skysports.com/transfer/news/11680/9967657/albert-adomah-asks-for-move-from-middlesbrough-after-bust-up

    Alex Neil - Complete Punt

    [quote user="yellow_belly"]Okay okay, shoot me down…

    When it was announced that we had appointed AN, it was a shock. Poor footballer, leads small club to top division in Scotland via play-offs. Just.

    Since his arrival;

    Bournemouth - set up my MP and GH. They should get the credit here.

    Cardiff. Same team as Bornemouth. Brilliant in first half (continuation from Millwall and Huddersfield at home), second half. Useless. Awful subs at the wrong time. Out of his depth.

    Brentford. What can I say. The worse set up (even with missing players), tactics. Kick it into the corners, and hope someone gets there. etc etc. If this is the new messiah then I am… well I will let you choose the words.

    In a nutshell, this punt looks awful. 10th at best this season. AN gone within a season. McNally gone at same time.

    This was the time for good management from the board to appoint the right team. Messed up big style.

    And yes, I do go to the games. Been going every week since 1982. So I know a little about us.

    Sad to see this happen. But it has.[/quote]You, Sir, are a complete cheese. pop your thoughts on a small peice of paper, fold, then dispose into a bin. thanks
  13. Can''t knock anything BEESOTTED has said, Comparing our club to Brentford, we are a bigger club but fall very short in terms of hunger, attitude and player ability. The wage budget also, what a joke that is here. I would love to see what the first team earn a week, embarrasing (Olsson for example)
  14. Great read, thank you. Very excited about his arrival the more I read, mainly because he is so unknown and doesnt take any sh*tSounds like just what we need

    Mike Phelan

    Brilliant bit of business, what a wealth of knowledge he has.Also he could be the perfect man to replace Neil if things carry on.Just when I had lost a fair bit of faith in the board, they come through with a very good move.

    Get Pulis in now

    hardly boring, did you see the performances with palace ? scored plenty of goals. for example, 3-1 win away at everton, coming back to draw at home against liverpool 4 all etc etc. People assume hes a longball man just because he was at stoke for years and they had the tallest squad.Anyone who watches football will see that this has changed recently.hughton was in a league of his own in terms of sh*t foootball. Worst season i can remember in 15 years of going.

    Get Pulis in now

    We need this man in now, he will take us up and then keep us up. End of. I said from the day we appointed ''Nayul'' that he wouldnt get us up, since when has any team in the championship gone up with a nobody as a manager. Experience and tactical nouse is the key in the championship.

    Lafferty yes or no

    Easily one of best signings. His work rate is top class despite what''s been said him, his touch is better than most and his vision is great. Personally I would like to see him more central but on the other hand, looking at his record and speaking to a rangers fan I know, he''s never been a consistent goal scorer, more of a team player and assists. Keep it up.

    Stoke Starting line up

    why would anyone with a brain drop Yobo but keep Bassong in. Yobo has been excellent since he joined, Bassong on the other hand is getting worse week by week.

    Snodgrass - I JUST DON'T GET IT

    brilliant post and spot on.He''s gone way off the boil and needs a boot up his arse

    Yevhen Konoplyanko

    This forum is a joke 99.9% of the time, we are not going be able to sign players like this. End of, if you think differently you have no idea what so ever about modern day football.He was in talks with Liverpool at the very end of the January transfer window which included roughly, a 20m fee and hes a rising start of European football, tore England to bits at Wembley.I think it was Monday I read on here someone suggesting we go for Ben Arfa and actually have a chance of getting him.,.... seriously what planet are these people on ? Hes on 50k + i would guess and is consistently linked with PSG. WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE YOU DELUDED CLOWNS.
  22. How are we ? There has been literally no progression since Hughton took charge IMO, people forget the end of last season, frustrating play, no cohesion etc.And its getting worse.

    Tonights match

    This will be a massive test tonight, I see plenty of Spanish football last season, Sociadad were on fire, Greizman is quality as is the lad who real madrid signed the other day from them for 35 million.Technically we''re up against a team who are far far better than us. Two very different styles, should make for a good game
