    PFA are just too powerful to get away with sacking anybody.

    They'll use the Flynn Clarke case as precedent, and we'd end up owing him a 7 figure sum like Derby did with Richard Keogh.

    Yep, that's my expectation too...

    As a ST, I tried to get a ticket close to my River End upper seat and the website informed me that I already had two tickets in my basket and refused my transaction when I only needed one ticket???

    Same here initially @Wroxham Bridge, however I restarted the process, updated the basket & it allowed me to purchase the seat next to me. (I'd already bought 3 for our regular ST places).

  3. I've always rated McClean highly. Lots of good points already made on this post; yes he has a mistake in him most games, likewise Nunez & Sara. Kenny is a class apart at Championship level & an excellent back-up utility player in the Premier League should that occur next season. As it stands, he's getting my POTS vote....

    If Sainz is available for the Ipswich game then you can expect another red card incoming. They'll be winding him up big time as will their fans.

    Precisely this! Emotionally, Sainz is the weakest link in the Norwich team. Ipswich & the rest of the Championship teams  will targeting him even more now. As would we, if he was playing against us!

  5. 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...

    Didn’t realise Matt Gill and Colin Calderwood were with him at Southampton.

    Andrew Surman has recently joined as u-18's Assistant Coach too (I'm connected with Russ on LinkedIn - saw it announced on there).

  7. 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!

  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. 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...

    No - I look forward not backwards. Apart from getting a decent deal on selling on if applicable its all water under the bridge and ancient history. I won't wallow in the past. What's team for Watford? Will we progress ?

    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.
