    There’s no denying his distribution was very poor yesterday. But is was tough as WBA pressurised us so well. It was so frustrating seeing short pass to Zimmermann, him pressured so returning it to Krul who then lumped it a mile over Arrons head. Happened repeatedly. Partly Krulls fault but being generous didn’t have th Stiepermann alternative and the coaching team need to work on alternatives. The throw to the WBA player was ludicrous and all in the crowd could see it wouldn’t work and Krul himself did a double take before going ahead. I also wonder what the dynamics are like between him and the defence? Couple of times he appeared to be balling out Godfrey and it seemed a bit unnecessary. But who knows, might have been encouragement. I also have no idea what he got so angry about at end. When he got yellow card and then did a lot of time wasting he risked getting sent off. BUT having said all that, none of the mistakes led to a goal and he made at least 2 or 3 game saving saves. I think he is a genuinely good keeper but unusually, for a keeper, he is a bit short of confidence so an error and pressure play on his mind.

    WBA (a)

    Makes Hanleys poor decision making in the cup seem even more ridiculous...totally stupid challenge. Tetty has dropped into CB position before so expect that could happen in an emergency during the game. WBA will be my first game of the season (apologies for being a plastic ) going with my son and really looking forward to it but also a bit worried of the possibility of seeing Wes playing against us (his my sons favourite ever player)
  3. I’m also in the minority of people who really like him as a pundit. He seems honestly passionate about the game and is also great at playing the pantomime villain. It’s good to have diversive characters in the media rather than just the bland former pros. l’m probably in an even smaller minority of people who liked him as a player. Similar to above he was a niggly little irritant who would hound players and never give up. Not the most talented but always gave everything and caused problems for the team he was playing against. A kind of player you hate as an opponent but would have in your own team. and, as already mentioned, will be forever grateful for the extra time his slow substitution gave us
  4. Very surprised unchanged. Expected at least Hanley in and maybe Cantwell subbed. Oh well, Farke knows best (I hope!)

    Unofficial Match thread

    Run had to come to and end and at least other results went our way. see people are already quick to start moaning on this and other posts but fact is it’s been a brilliant season so far. lets all stay right behind the team. We’re still in with a great chance of promotion.

    No Match Thread? Well...

    Wow.....I’d love a leitner and vrancic midfield. Not sure I can see it happening though. Maybe last game of the season after promotion has already been secured

    No Match Thread? Well...

    Hernandez and leitner on early 2nd half if things don’t improve

    Uh-oh...Soton sack Hughes

    This post has got my paranoia going. maybe Webber is ‘comfortable’ with Farke’s contract situation because he knows when he moves he can just take Farke with him!! sure the board won’t be that stupid but I really wish we had Farke all signed up so worst case scenario we get some decent compensation to fund a new manager!

    A word for Tettey...

    I must admit I was very wrong about Tettey. at the end of last season I thought he’d ran his last race and would’ve been quite pleased to see him go. brilliant this season and is now a key part of what is beginning to look like a very special squad.

    Best "ordinary" games you've been to...

    Agreed but icing on the top for me is went with my brother who is a Man City fan

    Lambert’s a binner

    Gave me some of my best years as a Norwich supporter but this just shows total lack of class and respect.

    Now feel he was great manager for us but probably actually an unpleasant man.

    Perhaps they deserve each other.

    Time to give Nelson another go?

    Over my dead body!

    Although tempted to give Rhodes a run out again

    Stoke match thread

    Played some wonderful stuff in that half and no way deserve to be losing.

    Just need to keep our heads and goals will come.

    Hernandez on early for me, prob for Buendia

    Maddison in the England squad

    You need a bit of arrogance to become the best so I dont really care what he is like on a night out. Did his talking on the pitch with us, has continued to do so at Leicester and I dare say, given the chance, will do with England.

    Tonight's team & subs

    Good point. Played really well and just a fortunate goal for the.

    I thought Leitner was superb tonight. Really got stuck in and shows he has learnt to play the ‘English’ game.

    Unbeaten run continues and we shouldn’t be scared of any team in this division

    Interestingly haven’t heard much about the Murphys. Looks like we might have got a good deal on them!

    Daniels humour

    Good point about Nelson and Warkins in that clip. Just as significant the reference to Thompson who lives 2 doors a way from Nelson but made it in.

    That very short clip tells you a hell of a lot about those players and Farke.

    It’s one of the reasons I’m prepared to give Farke time and stick with him. And also why I wouldn’t have Nelson anywhere near the first team again.

    Oliviera's here until at least January then?!?....

    Regardless of stats, Oliviera appears a bit of an idiot to put it mildly.

    I’d be glad to get rid, but fact no one else seems to want him suggests he is now known as having a poor attitude.

    Team for today

    I don’t think we’ve been that bad. Decent start and we’ve had a few chances.

    We just have sone big weaknesses....Krul and Pinto are looking real liabilities and seriously think we need to look at loan replacements.

    I’m also at a bit of a loss with Leitner just don’t know what he is contributing.

    But still have hope we could get something out of this game

    Home grown rule

    Oxborough can still play for u23s and would effectively be taking one for the team! Going on loan didn’t do Remi much good for us in the end!
  22. rock bus

    Home grown rule

    The one thing I don’t understand is why we are persisting with McGovern on the bench. Given it is highly unlikely we will ever use a sub goalkeeper I’d give that position to a home grown keeper. Surely it’s a risk worth taking to have the best possible outfield players on the bench?

    Strong looking squad!

    For me it’s a squad with a lot of unknowns but some real potential.

    If, and I accept it may be a big if at this stage, 2 or 3 of: Marshall, Leitner, Rhodes, Hernandez and Pukki really fulfill their potential they could be inspirational.

    Couple of them really on fire and could easily be in play offs.

    For some reason I’m more excited about this squad and the season than I was last year. Apart from Maddison, and none of us really knew how brilliant he’d end up being, there wasn’t much to be excited about.

    This year I think we could have a few players who can excite the crowd and motivate the team.

    I’m going to stay in the glass half full camp until at least 10 games in!

    Charlton match thread

    Really not bothered about this and hope the moaners don’t start.

    Most players priority on final pre season game is not to get injured!

    I’m still excited about what this season may offer.
