  1. 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...
  2. 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...
  3. Nathan Jones comes across as an imbalanced, tunnel-visioned, self-absorbed, narcissistic, ADHD-er. Might fit in well...
  4. 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...
  5. 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.
  6. 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!
  7. In fairness, I forgot Hwang scored a goal!
  8. So far, I don't recall Hwang doing anything remarkable or noteworthy in any game I've seen. May as well have an empty shirt out there...
  9. As in '100%' / Guaranteed / No questions asked / Instant termination? How do you know that?
  10. I haven't seen 90 mins of Ipswich in years! Be good to watch tonight's game to gauge what we'll be up against on December 16th...
  11. I agree with LDC; this game could be pivotal to what ultimately happens this season. The whole thing is on a knife-edge. Apart from the obvious 3 points up for grabs, SO much is riding on it for both teams. The outcome is about as predictable as Russian Roulette...
  12. Presumably the stated objective remains to gain promotion to the Premier League? As @duke63says, given Burnley's recent struggles, it's a pretty daunting prospect! By Christmas I envisage new Sporting Director Ben Knapper to have assessed state of play at NCFC and act accordingly. Whether he decides to stick or twist, a lot depends on which potential replacement Head Coaches are available, and when. Either way, I welcome a calm, measured, considered approach from someone who appears to represent a modern thinker in the game...
  13. 1-1 if betting. 0-3 with fear-based expectation. 2-1 with my hopeful heart. Quite frankly, any random thing could happen & probably will...
  14. I'm usually optimistic, however I wouldn't be in the least bit surprised if Norwich got zero points in the next 4 games. Anything better than that will be a bonus!
  15. I doubt many NCFC fans would expect PNE or Ipswich to be ahead of us. However, you make a fair point if that's the level we're aiming for...
  16. I was looking forward to the Barnes/Sargent combination this season - especially against Ipswich. Even if Barnes returns by then, he needs someone alongside with more determination to score than Idah & Hwang. I expect the game will be moved to Sunday to avoid excess pre-match alcohol consumption.
  17. i don't see Leicester & Ipswich being caught. Possible, but unlikely. Both sides are physically & mentally conditioned to win valuable league points.
  18. The Championship teams currently in positions 2 & 3 haven't spent £ zillions - surely our first objective should be to compete with them?
  19. Ipswich are currently in an automatic promotion slot for the Premier League & understandably high on confidence & belief. However, shipping 3 goals against Blackburn shows their vulnerability. The Championship table shows Ipswich are 61.5% better than Norwich at earning valuable league points. That's scary...
  20. Hwang looks bereft of any meaningful football talent. I'd rather see Daniel Ogwuru given his chance to contribute...
  21. Thankfully the perceived barrier you describe is a 'you thing' - not a 'general/applies to everyone thing'. It's your opinion, your feelings & that's perfectly fine. Knowing both Jack & Chris personally, my views are somewhat different to yours. There's good reason the likes of Jake Humphrey & Simon Thomas have freely mentored them - and even more reason Chris Goreham, Rob Butler & the BBC are comfortable to give Chris a regular radio broadcast opportunity. I haven't listened to the Scrimmage before, however I intend to now...
  22. At the point of writing, I think Jack calls it right. Thing is, a lot can change for the better before September & should that happen, I dare say Jack will adjust his thoughts accordingly. I didn't agree with him calling for Farke to be sacked, however I consider him to be an astute, considerate guy - as is Chris Reeve.
  23. Just watched it & found it mildly interesting during the closed season. Nice development story, shame he's up for sale by NCFC...
  24. Looking at his highlight reels, Duffy is pretty good at scoring with downward headers from corners. Could be a real game-changer to see NCFC taking an early lead with one or two of those... Mind you, he hasn't signed for us yet has he?
