  1. Great to see that snodgrass made it in to the team of the week. Still think Howson was m.o.m yesterday but Snodgrass also ran his socks off and his free kick was absolutely brilliant. Great response to all of those giving him unnecessary abuse on here http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/24892583
  2. Fair place to wiz, a fair and decent response. Let''s try and keep that approach on this and other threads everyone
  3. I really can''t understand what''s happened to Leroy fer. Against stoke and even Chelsea he looked a class above all the other players. Composed and quality on the ball, today he looks hopeless. It''s this for me which suggests hughton doesn''t have the ability to pick players up and bring the best out of them
  4. [quote user="Le Juge"]Apparently he lives in Leamington Spa. If I were driving from Norwich to Leamington Spa I wouldn''t choose to go anywhere near Swaffham, instead I''d go up and down the A11. Next.[/quote] Well, I live in Leamington too so let me know his address and I will pop round and have a chat should things not work out Saturday ;)
  5. Posted this on the west ham line up thread: Why alll the calls to drop Turner and replace him with Bennett. Surely Bassong has been the weakest centre back this season?? Best pairing has been Turner and Bennett at Stoke.

  7. There has been quite a few posters having a go at Snodgrass and also questioning why he hasn''t been dropped. Whilst admitting he hasn''t been at his best, I was surprised to see that in the observers statistic session he is listed as the fifth highest player for cresting chances this season. Although admitedly not sure where the figure of 19 has come from!? The other thing I would mention is that I really think his value to the team was demonstrated by yesterday''s gutless performance. One thing you have to say for him is that even when off form he doesn''t hide and plays with commitment. I am sure he wouldn''t of rolled over like so many of the others did yesterday and would at least have shown some passion. I certainly hope he is back for west ham and would even suggest stripping Bassong and given him the captaincy (or at least give it to Martin instead)
  8. Yep I have joined the outers now Losing to Man city is one thing but being humiliated and showing no fight is just too much. Sadly I just don''t think hughton has the character to turn things around. He may well be nice but just don''t think he can inspire the players or restore their confidence
  9. Ok I give up....hughton out It''s all just too embarrassing
  10. I have tried to back and defend hughton but now really struggling. This is just embarrassing and given my brother is a fanatical man city is going to potentially condemn me to a life time of humiliation :(
  11. Come on all, let''s try and be positive and cheer the team in from a far. Can I suggest constructive criticism only and no personal insults. Then we can all enjoy a celebratory drink at full time when we pull off a surprise away win!!
  12. Happy enough with this. To be fair to hughton, which I know isn''t allowed!?, not sure what else he could do given all the injuries and quality of the opposition
  13. Sadly most people on here will be more interested in taking another pop shot at hughton for playing him rather than be worried about snodgrass Really hope he is ok as no matter how poor his form is , he always appears commited to the cause and on his day a great player
  14. Watching it now and ts interesting stuff. Once again one thing that comes across is how hard Chris hughton works and how seriously he/we are taking the scouting and finding of good players. Whilst I,like others, are verging on joining the hughton outers he obviously has some very good qualities
  15. Forgetting the ridiculous racism accusations, what really concerns me is that the England Manager thinks the best way of motivating a team or giving instructions is to tell such a rubbish joke. I know Hodgson himself said he doesn''t give Churchill esque speaches but this just seems a rubbish way to make a point. Thank god we won because if we hadn''t qualified and this had been leaked as the half time speech it would have been a whole new brolly gate scenario!!
  16. Posted below on the match thread, I am a great fan of Ruddys but today he was not his usual reliable self: Only sight downside for me was Ruddys performance. Didn''t look confident during whole game. I wonder if in back of his mind he knew that a storming performance against Chelsea on TV could have seen him pushing Hart. Never mind sure the big man will back to his best against Arsenal
  17. Whilst I tend to agree with the sentiments here. Imagine what the hughton outers would have been saying if Turner or Bennett had made a mistake and Bassong was on the bench!

  19. I thought that was a great second half performance. Bad second goal but we could easily have won that game. If we can play like that against weaker teams then we will definitely stay up
  20. For me Fer Is a quality above our other players, shown some quality already. Need to get him involved further up and laying on passes for RVW, Pilks and Snoddy
  21. There have been a lot of posts questioning both of these players. In fact some have suggested that without Bassong we are doomed. I thought they both had a great game today. Even with Stoke having more possession in second half they really didn''t look like scoring
  22. Not convinced re Elmander but wolf wasn''t holding the ball up and that is probably what we need
  23. I''m just worried, as I always am when we are on telly. Away against Stoke is not an easy game but we will be under real pressure up if we don''t get something out of it. Really need some confidence in the team and fans
