  1. If so, he fooled me completely (and a few others by the look of it)
  2. But we are in the Championship so surely that is what you are doing. This is a different season and a different squad to the Prem season. You know that for a fact do you? We lost an away game by one goal to a team that finished above us last season and were equal on points (albeit after only two games). And how could he have done that if he hadn't dropped them in the first place? Nobody will - they are not allowed to. If you choose not to when the pandemic is over that is your choice. Others will decide to stay away or return; that is their choice.
  3. If you really want to devastate their fans I hope they don't go bust. What could be more devastating than paying to have their expectation of promotion dashed year after year?
  4. Cor blimey Guvnor. You've got me bang to rights, and no error!
  5. Sometimes the auto-truncation of headlines on featured articles can throw up some misleading headlines. The article shown in the screen grab from the Pinkun website was not as interesting as first impressions might suggest....
  6. No buffering here but my mate said he had to watch on his phone because computer kept freezing. On a different note, I put up with the drivel on Radio Leeds for the whole game. During the post match interviews I went into the settings to see if I could mute the radio coverage and noticed the option for 'Home' or 'Away' radio station.
  7. I must admit that I for one won't miss the cynicism of the PL, where the main objective seems to be gaining an advantage by conning the ref (and no, VAR does nothing to alleviate this). It will also be nice to once more go to games with a sense of hope, rather than dread.
  8. Yes, let's retire the no. 9 shirt...... looking at our scoring record this season we don't appear to have a centre forward
  9. Let's hope so (although I'd rather Villa came down with us)
  10. https://www.pinkun.com/norwich-city/krul-hints-he-will-remain-with-city-1-6763235 If this report is correct then we would be mad to let Krul go. I would think that many premiership teams would love to have him, even if only as a back-up, but he says he owes a debt of gratitude to Norwich City. In addition to his skills as a keeper he is a fantastic leader, and a guide for the younger players. Although we shipped far too many goals this season I dread to think how many more it would have been without Tim between the sticks.
  11. Interesting to see people complaining about Farke dropping Pukki in favour of someone who has done **** all. What has Pukki done, or even looked like doing, since the toe injury earlier in the year? Many were calling for Farke to make changes, but then wringing their hands when he does. Given that we were only a goal down when a fresh Pukki, Cantwell and Idah came on, you might have thought we could have made a game of it. If we had, many would be applauding Farke's genius.Let's face it, managers are tactical magician's in the eyes of some when it's going well, and clueless clowns in the eyes of others when it's not. It's been a crap season, and a massive opportunity to establish ourselves in the PL missed, but there are an awful lot more clubs whose fans feel they should be in the PL than there are places. The PL consists of about 10 permanent clubs, with the other places being filled with transitional clubs, some who stay for a few years before dropping back down, and others, like us, who seem to yoyo up and down with monotonous regularity. Confidence plays a massive part in the game, and losing runs are much easier to get into than out of. That being said, it is the manager's job to try and build that confidence. Sometimes though teams do need the crowd behind them, particularly when up against superior opposition, and I think Norwich have suffered more than many in this respect. At the end of the day, I for one won't miss VAR, players conning the ref, £6 hot dogs and going to away games knowing it will be a long, depressing drive home.
  12. I don't think he does; Championship beckons. While the drop does not bother me too much as I never believed our squad was ready for PL. What does concern me is the total lack of heart that we appeared to show yesterday, and the fear that relegation may herald an exodus of our best young players, thus undoing all the good that has so far been achieved. I know that the club keeps saying they don't need to sell, but if the big PL clubs come in for our best young talent, then we are probably not going to be able to hang on to them. We all know that a long contract just bumps the asking price up - if a player doesn't want to be here there is no point forcing them to stay, as it just creates tension and destroys the changing room.
  13. Season ticket for all remaining games.... unfortunately you can't actually attend any of them
  14. The FA have ended the Women's Super League and Women's Championship seasons with immediate effect. They have not yet decided how promotions and relegations will be determined, or even if they will happen. If they decide not to relegate Liverpool Women, currently in bottom place, can they reasonably apply different method for determining the outcome of the season to the Men's game?
  15. Ah, but that doesn't mean they haven't spent it
  16. Much of the talk of completing the 2019/20 season seems to assume that the 20/21 season will go ahead as planned. With the general opinion of the scientists being that mass gatherings cannot take place until a proven effective immunisation programme has been administered, and a readily available vaccine being 12-18 months away it would appear that much of the 20/21 EPL season is in doubt. Let's assume that players can resume full training January - a few weeks to get match fit and we are not a million miles away from the point when this season was suspended. I know it won't happen, but shut everything down (sports wise) and resume this season in March 2021 (including FA Cup). It's no different to sports that don't straddle two years (e.g. F1, MotoGP, BSB etc.) losing a whole season, which is probably what will happen to most of them.
  17. Still can't believe he beat Salah in a one-on-one foot race in the second half
  18. Still in it until the numbers say otherwise. Yup, it's the hope that kills ya. Whatever the outcome the players can still hold their heads high, having played some entertaining football. Perhaps we could have stayed up by parking the bus, but what a boring season that would have been.
  19. And you think that would stop their fans claiming that a season without a loss is 'perfect'?
