    Oh for the days when you just 'turned up'

    No season ticket, no membership you just turned up, joined the queue at the turnstile of your choice and joined the huge crowd at Carrow Road. oh happy days.

     

     

    And doesn''t that look better than a ruddy hotel?

    Lambert

    I''d prefer Lambert over Houghton.

     

    He''ll get Gary Holt firing, and that''s what we need right now.

    Is Wes over rated?

    [quote user="Warren Hill"][quote user="Monty13"]I find it rather telling that Hughton who played the majority of his career at left back seems to have no faith in Tierney performing at this level. We can all disagree on our opinion of Hughton, but the one thing you would expect him to effectively do is judge a player who plays in the same position he did at top level for 13 plus years.[/quote] I wholeheartedly agree and my personal opinion is that Tierney is vastly inferior to Garrido. However by the same rationale, Gunn signed Theoklitos, so it doesn''t always work..[/quote]

     

    I would further add that Tierny was excellent in the Premier last season...under Lambert, so I suggest that maybe the manager is the problem rather than the player![^o)]

    I thought it was too good to last. over 30 posts before you posted anything except about other posters and sh1t stirring. And now you''ve reverted to type.

     

    Could you please indicate the fan who has taken the gratification and the post you gleaned this information from.

     

     

    [/quote]

     

    I didn''t say ANYONE took any gratification from LDC leaving Sir Nutty, but he was getting hounded at times, and you, may I be so bold to say, were one of the hounds at times imo.

     

    Now, the old wiz was designed to handle s*it flung his way, but sadly, LDC wasn''t, thats all.

    [/quote]

     

    I didn''t say you did Wiz. It''s quite clear who my post was in reply to. But as you now want to claim I hounded LDC perhaps you''d be good enough to provide a link to the posts in which this hounding took place. Then report the posts. Then perhaps I''ll get banned. Alternatively these posts aren''t there meaning you have joined the sh1t stirrers and this thread will end up in Pete''s bin.

    I don''t want you banned or reported Nutty, at times, you''re a damn good read, but check back through this thread, and with hand on your heart, tell me you weren''t a teeny bit heavy handed to LDC.

     

    I''ll address this to YC as well.

    The choice was LDC''s to depart unlike some who have no say in the matter.Anyway who exactly has expressed gratification ?

    Oh come on Til, he was driven to that decision by posters on here..........whilst I hardly agreed with him I still read his posts.........don''t let them beat you down LDC.

    Is Wes over rated?

    [quote user="Mister Chops"]It''s also interesting that posters who have complained about our boring and negative style of play believe the remedy is to drop Wes Hoolahan.

    Wiz, let''s have some answers from you.  Who would you play instead of him and what formation would you send out?

    [/quote]

     

    Honest question deserves an honest answer from me Mr C.

     

    I''d start with Howsen in Wes''s place, drop him to the bench and use him as a sub in the last 25 minutes if things aren''t working.

     

    Also Tetty would go in favour of Fox, who imo, is the best crosser we''ve got, Tierny would replace Garrido as he supports wide players better, again imo.

     

    And I''d play without fear and go 2 up front and sod the risks!

     

    Well, you did ask. [:$]

    4 wins

    For starters, Swansea and Villa are not certain wins.

    Is Wes over rated?

    [quote user="Dubai Mark"]

    Wiz, this is spooky, earlier I was reading the post about what team we should play vs Everton and this almost triggered me to post a similar subject regarding Wes, but I decided not to do it as felt I would just get insults, told I didnt know what I was talking about etc (you klnow all about that) and it wouldnt stimulate a decent balanced debate. So, thanks for posting, it''s a good subject to discuss and has actually stimulated some good responses....because these are the sprts of things message boards are all about.

    Now, hate to say this, but having read that earlier post I came to the conclusion that vs Everton I would actually not play Wes, but that doesnt mean I think he is over rated.

    I just think that when he is in the team the shape of the team becomes very rigid, we have become a bit predictable and like somebody elsehas said the opposition has found us out. 

    For where our club is right now, Wes is certainly one of the most talented players we have on our books. I like seeing him play.......BUT, regardless of his percentages I still dont think he is, shall we say.....one of those "match winner" types of players, as he rarely comes up with the killer pass or a goal created out of nothing......this is now what he needs to do more often, actually a thread a month or so ago discussed this and he scored immediately afterwards......but I dont think he has done that much since in terms of something crucial.

    He is a very valuable member of the squad, who perhaps has been over used a little this season, I guess because CH doesnt see that many better options within the squad, which maybe true..........perhaps like me CH thinks that Fox IS over rated, sorry Wiz, but I do and have never really understood all of the fuss to be honest, he is decent, a good squad player (for where we are right now) ...I digress...that''s a topic for another thread.     

    Anyway, over rated....Wes.....depends on what you are looking for.....I just can''t make my mind about this one......a match winner vs Everton when we really need it, then I guess I will have to say NO.......OTBC

    Cheers for your imput Mark, I was hoping you''d chip in with your view. [Y]

     

    Its certainly gave me a few things to ponder over the weekend.

    Is Wes over rated?

    What I find interesting is that under Lambert, Fox and Thierny played a lot of games in the Premier and more than coped well.

     

    Suddnly, they''re not good enough............hmm?

  23. First Wizard

    Is Wes over rated?

    [quote user="morty"]Okay, I didn''t want to pander to the usual attempt to attention seek, but I shall.

    Anyone who has gone to games in the last 5 seasons surely can''t question Wes''s quality, at best he is unplayable, at worst he has been a creative shining star in the middle of some very average performances.

    He plays a specific role that sometimes stifles other players, but he has been the heartbeat of this team, managers build the team around him.

    And frankly he''s better now than he has ever been. When Lambert dropped him all those years ago it was justified, and he came back fitter and working harder.

    Anyone who considers Wes not good enough, frankly doesn''t know squit about football.

    [/quote]

     

    I''ll conceed the going to games bit morty, you get a bigger picture etc etc.

     

    But because my opinion is different to yours that doesn''t mean its squit, mostly this season, I''ve had to rely on live streams for City games, albeit in superb HD, so my view is of course based on that.

     

    And believe me, as I have the advantage of instant replays, Wes, imo, fu*cks our side up at times.

     

    But you cannot beat being there.........I''ll agree on that.

    [quote user="GJP"][quote user="Wiz"]

    Thats a top reply Sheff, but I''m a huge David Fox fan, best passer of a ball at the club by a country mile, good at free kicks and can really cross a ball, all things imo, which Wes can''t do.

     

    His omission from the team is the real reason as to why the goals have dried up.

     

    But thats taking this thread off topic.

    [/quote]

    I''m a David Fox fan but if he was that good he''d be in the team (or even on the bench more than he has been).

     

    It''d hurt the club more to lose Wes than it would Fox.

    [/quote]

     

    That comes down to a managers decision....and I''m not taking this thread there!
