    Villa Restricted View

    also applied for another child ticket which i havent got so will lead to arguments in the house!!!!

    Norwich Unchanged

    i think its the right decision. having achieved our first win they deserve the chance to go again- why change a winning team

    if it doesnt work, just use the subs and change it

    firstly im not johnsons biggest fan BUT i think he played well today

    true he doesnt have fantastic skill but he gives us some bite and aggression which we need in the team

    i think he played much better than crofts today.

    for me its johnson or crofts with. fox depending on opposition.

    hoolahan should be first name on team sheet as he is our only real class player. i think he should always start and then if its one of those days when its not working for him (as happens) then bring him off

    Todays starting lineup

    i dont see an issue with johnson. hes no ronaldo but without him we would be very light weight and even wba would of steamed all over us

    Todays starting lineup

    absolutely fantastic rudd, well done lad!!!

    Todays starting lineup

    am i the onlyperson on here who thinks martin is a good player???

    i think lots of people miss the little knocks and lay offs he makes to keep us going forward

    johnson and tierney have also impressed more than i expected so far

    Todays starting lineup

    more worryingly i understand no sub goalie. have total respect for lambert but if true this is a huge and unnecessary risk

    surely even a youth gk would be better than an outfield player should rudd get injured or sent off

    big big risk

    Midland Canaries


    I live in leamington in Warwickshire

    Would be good if there was a group for meeting up/sharing lifts

    Not that I''ve got any chance of getting a ticket!!!

  9. If this is true

    Surely there must be a way of viewing over Internet???

    On related subject is there a way of getting radio Norfolk through an app so it doesn''t cut out when commentary starts like it does on BBC player

    Portsmouth Manager

    Know we will all be too busy celebrating and getting pixxed but just thought I''d mention his post match interview

    Really garcious in defeat and way he spoke about Delia suggested may be he''s been interviewed before?!?!

    He came across as a real 1st class gent so well done to him

    Ok enough sentiment back to the beer - we are premier league!!!!!!

    Has Holty come off twitter?

    I know not important in the great scheme of life but has Holty stopped posting on twitter??

    Use to enjoy following him but havent had any lately and couldnt find when I searched

    Anyone know (hucks???)

    Maybe this is a sign that the new contract has gone to his head and now he is dreaming of being a premiership star doesnt want to communicate with the fans (NB this is a joke before loads of responses defending him!!!!)

    Jackson starts

    Apart from "the miss" I think he has done well -some nice touches and works by being a very different player to Holt -Bristol defenders have to deal with both types of threat

    Jackson starts

    No striker on the bench just shows where we are short

    Only MacNamee on bench to allow any real change in attack

    Lets hope nothing happens to Holt

    Lansbury's Celebration

    Fact is that most of the best players (at least in more recent history before someone starts giving back in the day examples!) has some form of arrogance about them.

    Its that air of self confidence which means they are willing to try things that others arent,

    In my opinion this streak just needs to be harnessed in the right way but not surpressed (our own Chris Martin is a good example of the need and difficulty in doing this)

    Through work I went to the Leicester v Milwall game today and have to admit Yakubu looked very good.

    Heard rumours he was over weight and not match fit. Fact is he just has an air of quality about him and is clearly too good for the championship.

    Appears to be just one of those players who will scare the defence and score goals.

    Basically made what was a decent ish Leicester team look very good.

    Can definitely see them moving up the league with him leading the line.

    Must admit it did make me think the final piece of our jigsaw would be a similar player who can give us that ability to kill a game off with one goal (although were not exactly doing too bad at the moment!!!)

    Askou Sent Off!

    By co incidence I was at the Leicester game today (invited via work)

    I therefore spent a lot of the time watching Askou

    Couple of points for me

    Sending off was a bit unlucky, it was a poor challenge but not really a straight red- that was more the case of ref trying to balance out having awarded two penalties for Milwall and failing to give Leicester a clear penalty.

    In terms of Askous performance for me he just flatters to deceive. He didnt really do anyhting wrong and was not at fault really for any of the goals. In many ways that is the point - he really doesnt get involved in the game. He just tends to " hover" around taking the right sort of positions but not actually getting stuck in.

    I suppose it could be argued that this is just due to lack of games and therefore he is not up to match speed but I wasnt at all convinced by him (and I wanted to support him today)

    On the whole it is quite clear that he is rightly down the pecking order against our other centre backs

    On a final issue - Leicester looked ok but more worryingly Yakubu looked like the bit of class that could make an average team get some very good results. He has a quality above most other championship players and will score some goals
  25. Overall a really good performance and we probably deserved more

    Have to say Russel Martin is a real hero!
