  1. No. The last two seasons have been quite horrible for the most part. Saturday was great but their have been false dawns before. Thanks Chris but time to move on for me.
  2. Any chance we could get shot of this article from the Opinions front page? Not only is it a reminder of a very dark day for the club its also over a year old and im sick of looking at it.
  3. "Morison was Pants" What utter bollocks. Double figures in his first season in the greatest league in the world. Regardless of what he has done since he clearly wasnt "pants"
  4. [quote user="Indy_Bones"][quote user="ricardo"]The fact that they can''t stick the ball in the net can''t possibly be their own failing can it?[/quote]Why is it that EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM was scoring before coming under Hughton''s management and now struggles to even get a shot on target???Holt, Becchio, Hooper, RVW, Elmander, (even Kamara ffs) were ALL scoring goals under different managers (many on a regular and consistent basis), but as soon as Hughton takes over - constantly firing blanks...It''s not rocket science to see the single common denominator here, and it isn''t that a whole string of players have suddenly forgotten how to play as a striker...[/quote] Steve Morison too. 9 goals he scored in 11/12 stacks up pretty well against Elmanders Zero and RVW''s 1
  5. a few weeks ago while in Canberra Hospital i met a guy in the foyer wearing the green lotus shirt from a few years back. Absolutely made my day as i was quite sick at the time...he was from Norwich too! In WSC this month theres mention of a Norwich fan club in New York with 250 members!
  6. [quote user="Kangaroo Court"]Snodgrass has played in the hole for Norwich and things didn''t work out.[/quote] When was this? Could we not try it again? We try lots of other things that dont work over & over again.
  7. Sutch had plenty of good games in his early years. Became an absolute liability at right back later on though. Has anyone mentioned Keith Scott in this list, quite the worst striker i ever saw. Replaced Sutton with Mike Sheron and then replaced Sheron with Scott!!
  8. Do we need 40 this season? If we did we would need another 29 points from 26 games. Being a pessimist i cannot see any points from the last 5(people say 4 but having been at Craven Cottage 3 times in the last decade i cant see any points coming there) so we need 29 from 21. Looks tough given our away form. I think given recent form we will probably land in the early to mid 30''s. Enough?
  9. The anti Hughton brigade often discount the 10 game unbeaten run as a blip and that the rest of his reign should be viewed as the norm. To be honest i thought that spell was pretty lucky, we didnt in any games by more than a goal and even then we looked like, at best we would scrape points away from home but still that was hughtons best period as manager so to see any future for him you have to think that he can recreate what happened during it. But Holt is gone and Hoolahan clearly doesnt majorly figure in his plans moving forward so the only period in which he has had any success whatsover(and take this run out and we would be in the championship already) the successful forward players have been removed. Just a point to debate...if you want...or contiinue bickering ttfn
  10. i dont think he has changed his mindset to be honest, sad to say. We generally are quite positive at home and our record under him bears out that this works quite well. Away is a different story, he freely admits he sets us up to be tough to beat and to keep things tight. the problem is that this does not seem to work very often. His only 2 victories on the road have come in open games where the play was quicker and we got bodies forward. To me it seems that if we are to have a chance of winning away games then the gameplan from these two games needs to be replicated. The midfielders need to get in support of the forwards and, just as importantly (in my eyes anyway) the fullbacks need to be allowed past the halfway line. Garrido''s main strength for me (i dont think hes the greatest defender) is that he puts wonderful crosses in when he gets into advanced positions. Unfortunately this never happens away from home. Maybe today, fingers crossed.
  11. [quote user="ricardo"]WBA everyone behind the ball. Go in front with only shot on target in an hour.Level now though, also Villa''s parity didn''t last long.[/quote] Dont know what game your watching, Albion have had a right go at Utd, fully deserve to be in front
  12. [quote user="Kangaroo Court"]Losing Lukaku must have been a massive blow, Mr Knowledgeable. [/quote] I was starting to think he would get away with that one!!
  13. mate id be pleased if he were to go but we werent awful. What game were you watching? Were in trouble(probably) because of our terrible approach to away games which means we need to be very good at home.
