  1. I’d have been tempted to start Hanley and Tettey as well. Probably would’ve been unfair on Trybull and Godfrey but fact is we have shipped a lot of goals recently. i hope we have a real go at Leeds and would love to come away with a nice win. OTBC
  2. I would be really interested to know if we made any enquiries about him coming to us. wouldve been a handy option but wouldn’t play him above Hernandez or Buendia. i think he would’ve chosen WBA anyhow, it’s a bit embarrassing to come back to the club you’ve been sold by and admit you weren’t really good enough for your new club....bit like going back to an ex with your tail between your legs!
  3. Good riddance as far as I am concerned. not sure how people are defending his attitude....his public disrespecting of Farke in his first game was a disgrace. He’s lucky Farke gave him another chance, I wouldn’t have. Even then he didn’t take it and was just petulant in most games last season. he has the talent and actually hope he shows it at Reading so he helps us get promoted by scoring against our rivals.
  4. I know I risk being banned for this...But if we HAD to lose one I’d let the scum have their small victory (on proviso they still go down). I’d so love Farke and this team to get promoted and have the success they deserve and beating Leeds and Sheffield will give us 3 points and also prevent them getting 3. Feel sick admitting that! And confident we can in fact win all 3!
  5. 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.
  6. 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)
  7. 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
  8. Very surprised unchanged. Expected at least Hanley in and maybe Cantwell subbed. Oh well, Farke knows best (I hope!)
  9. 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.
  10. 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!
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Over my dead body! Although tempted to give Rhodes a run out again
  14. 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
  15. 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.
  16. 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
  17. Interestingly haven’t heard much about the Murphys. Looks like we might have got a good deal on them!
  18. 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.
