    Chelsea v City

    An excellent performance tonight. So much to be proud of. The defence was superb. Hanley zimmerman and klose were immense. Lewis looks an outstanding prospect down the left. Josh play really well too. So many positive''s to take from today''s match. Add a few more willing runners to this team and we could at still go places.

    Match thread v Millwall

    Why do we try to play tippy tap shite when we''re not Barcelona and don''t have a midfield consisting of Messi, xavi and iniesta. Absolute insanity of the highest order. Farke is an absolute joke of a manager.

    We live in an instant soceity

    The problem with our instant society is the media. Basically the media is everywhere non-stop these days. Back in the Fergerson, Shankly and Clough days, you had 4 tv channels, two radio channels maybe and the back pages of the papers. And that was it. Things were slower paced.

    Now-a-days you have constant media coverage. There''s a TV channel dedicated to football news for heavens sake. To fill all that time you have pundits discussing every tiny issue to the nth degree, and hence the ridiculous pressure that puts on every manager. And that''s before you get to the internet and social media where every tom, dick and harry can have his view regardless of his level of knowledge on what he''s talking about.

    And it''s not just football which is suffering because of the media. I can''t but help but feel political discourse has declined in recent years with less tolerance, less sensible debates and more nonsense.

    Couple this with the ''modern'' game of football, which is formulaic, and quite frankly dull. I''m sick of seeing teams line up with 1 striker and 2 holding midfielders. Boring, and pointless. It''s killing the game. I''ve given up with Sky Sports now because I''m sick of seeing two teams trying not to lose and hoping they ''snatch a goal from a set piece''. Boring. Boring. Boring. And as for England. Boring. Boring. Boring.

    FA Cup shocks

    The attitude towards the fa cup by the majority of clubs is a disgrace. Most clubs will NEVER challenge in Europe or for a league title. The cups should therefore be a priority for those clubs with little or nothing to realistically play for. Yet so many play ''squad players'' who inevitably put in a dire effort and the club lose in a ''shock exit''. It really is quite pathetic.

    As much as Lincoln and Sutton should be applauded this year really neither had any business lasting this long in the cup. In 1989 Norwich demolished Sutton Utd 8-0. I expect arsenal to do the same tomorrow unless they are gutless wasters.

    Our attitude to the competition has been pathetic for years and years now. It has to change.

    Where do we go from here?

    Berbatov is a free agent apparently. Maybe we could pick him up....

    I''ve run out of patience. He has to go now.

    Match thread Reading v City

    Naismith must be our worst ever signing in our history. £8 million and can''t do a thing in the championship.

    Name our best defender in last 30 years

    [quote user="Rogue Baboon"]Simon Charlton...

    In all seriousness, Adam Drury?

    Or does it have to be a CB?[/quote]

    Oh god. I forgot worthington playing the dwarfish Simon charlton as a centre back when he''d been a left back all of his career. I think he even played right back for us once too...

    But Adam Drury is a good shout. Very solid one on one.

    You can nominate players from earlier than 30 years, but they''re just outside my ''era'' as I''m too young to know them.

    Name our best defender in last 30 years

    With all the post match criticism of our defenders at Newcastle, I wondered who we all think was our best defender from the last 30 years as I believe our current defenders are generally no better or worse than most of our defenders from this period.

    My pick is Andy Linighan.

    But some names to consider, Butterworth, Culverhouse, Bowen, Polston, Newman, Prior, Newsome, Woodthorpe, Blades, Kevin Scott, Bradshaw, Sutch, Shackell, Doherty, Fleming, Malky Mackay to name a few. Over to y''all.

    Will we see Bassong again?

    After Bassong''s performance v Man Utd last season re jumping under the ball leading to man utd''s winning goal and Alex Neil''s post match comments about the error, I am surprised he''s still here. It probably shows that we can''t offload him. He''s an okay defender, just prone to lapses in concentration which cost goals. Probably a mid champ level defender. If we want to go up and stay up we obviously need better. But he''s not total rubbish.
  12. Canary Poirot

    The defence

    To be fair, name two rock solid centre backs we''ve had I the last 30 years? Aside from Andy Linighan, we''ve always had defenders prone to shocking errors every now and then. This defence is no better or worse than what we''ve had over the years.

    Norwich v Burton match thread

    Only one up top against burton? Could be a struggle to score if burton park the bus. I would''ve gone with two strikers today and gone at them with intent from the off. Could be a depressing dull affair (I''m so fed up with the 4-2-3-1 formation killing football entertainment).

    Modernising the game

    I''d rather see 4 points for a win brought in, to stop gems set up to not lose as it is killing entertainment in football. And I would have instant bookings for players faking injuries. A captain in the army recently said said he has seen people shot in athganistan make less fuss than some players faking injuries which is an absolute disgrace.

    Bruce or Lambert?

    Kick it off

    I didn''t really follow lambert at Blackburn so don''t know the ins or outs but I do know they''ve got no money. So Immediately you''re in trouble as a manager if you don''t have a good back room team who know lower league players and with a contact list length of the Thames.

    I can excuse him buying Jackson and Bennett. He knew them and they were cheap (largely because they''re well past their best) and they didn''t let him down in the past.
