  1. I accept DW is a nice guy doing his best. He deserves to be given a shot at getting to the play-offs (although it's frustrating to watch some rather odd coaching decisions being made!). He may scrape to position #6, however I doubt he'd be allowed to coach Norwich in the top league should a proverbial miracle happen. Either way, a talented young coach like Carlos Cuesta at Arsenal is probably being lined up for next season...
  2. I've zero awareness of anything Kyle Walker may have done. tbh, I quite like it that way!...
  3. Andrew Surman has recently joined as u-18's Assistant Coach too (I'm connected with Russ on LinkedIn - saw it announced on there).
  4. Tzolis back to feed Van Hoojdonk please....
  5. Leeds 1-2 Norwich. The home side go down to 10 men in this one... (Trainee) Psychic Mustard.
  6. I thought the same; telepathic connection between Rowe & Sargent on that occasion. Looked so straightforward - top performers tend to make things look easy don't they? When he first arrived, I thought Sarge was no more than a League One player, gotta say I'm delighted to see him doing well!
  7. No to Cooper. Nowhere near inspirational enough. He looks like he's struggling to stay awake...
  8. At the 1-1 game where Max Aarons made his debut I took my (then 13 y/o) with me. Familiar with that area from business trips, we parked near the Ranelagh Road roundabout & walked from the car wearing yellow shirts. No police presence whatsoever on the mile or so walk to the stadium. Comments were getting increasingly spicy from supporters in blue, especially when we walked past home fans queuing to enter at the Sir Bobby Robson end. Still no police presence - not one! It was only when we went around the corner we found ourselves 'the wrong side' of the police cordon. They quickly ushered us through to join the away section & we finally felt safe. Tbh, I was naive & misjudged the potential consequences that day. Lesson learned.
  9. From what I've seen, there are similarities between Roger Munby and Mark Attanasio - friendly, amenable, engaging, gently-spoken, man-of-the-people etc. NCFC would certainly benefit from having a true people-connector to guide future progress...
  10. I think Knapper is keeping his powder dry; wants to be seen being fair to a senior employee ahead of strategically replacing him. It's likely Norwich's new Sporting Director presented his potential masterplan to Zoe & Co over the course of several interview meetings that took place several months ago. He's only two weeks into the job, however the recruitment of a top-quality, results-orientated Head Coach is crucial. It may take time. Either way, I doubt DW will still be here in January...
  11. Nathan Jones comes across as an imbalanced, tunnel-visioned, self-absorbed, narcissistic, ADHD-er. Might fit in well...
  12. If Ipswich went down to 10-men in the first 10 mins, they would still be capable of out-passing & out-scoring Norwich. We've got a puncher's chance I suppose, however few of of us are expecting proper effort, never mind a match-winning performance...
  13. I don't share your opinion I'm afraid. Tzolis should be part of NCFC's bright future! It's not a blasé case of water under the bridge, nor 'ancient history'? His contract is current, which places this topic firmly in the 'here & now'. No wallowing involved either. Tzolis is a valuable asset & we should be enjoying far more success with him.
  14. In an ideal world, here's how I see it panning out: Leicester finish as Champions. Leeds successfully chase down Ipswich & secure the second auto position. Norwich finally get their act together & make steady progress with a late flourish to finish 5th. 3rd beats 6th, & 5th beats 4th in the playoffs. Norwich beat Ipswich at Wembley & the job's a good 'un!
