  1. I'd love to see Daniel Farke back at Carrow Road. Would make a fabulous DoF - that man has presence & charisma...
  2. I'm assuming Norwich are out of it now - like LDC says, whoever wins their next 4 games have a chance, however based on our lack of consistent results it's very unlikely to be us. I'd be pleased for ex-NCFC man Dave Carolan at Millwall should they manage it though...
  3. 'Mind the Gap' jokes are looking a bit meek these days. Ipswich have created momentum whilst Norwich (unless an absolute miracle occurs) have not. Of course their supporter's tails are up; we'd be the same. I'm fully expecting them to join us in the Championship & safely finish mid-table in 2023/4. Right now, trying to gauge where Norwich are heading is a complete finger in the air job...
  4. Well I thought the performance against Rotherham was woeful. Nothing to get excited about whatsoever. Style-wise, not dissimilar to a confused Dean Smith side. The players appear to be far too comfortable playing with low levels of passion & belief. Looking at the recent performances of those around us, Luton have won 3, PNE have won 4 - and Boro, Millwall, Blackburn, Norwich, Coventry, Sunderland, WBA, Watford & Bristol City have only won 1 game each from their last 5! If we can't make enough effort to secure a few wins in a race this wide open, I despair...
  5. Totally agree; Idah, Sargent & Pukki don't complement each other in any way, shape or form! The wide players in the 3 need to be wingers or wing-backs or attacking midfielders who can create or score. Right now, NCFC are sterile; not scoring a goal in the last 3 home games is shambolic given the potential prize on offer.
  6. Old Farm Derbies are something to look forward to though? Should Norwich fail to get promoted (currently looking that way) & Ipswich successfully return to the Championship, the universe will have delivered a just & fair sporting outcome. A few years back, the thought of avoiding Ipswich would've lit a proverbial fire under the arses of our players - doubt many on the playing staff appreciate that local rivalry at all nowadays...
  7. Pukki to make his 200th appearance - did DW actually say that?
  8. Currently I consider Idah to be well behind both Pukki & Sargent. Yes he has potential - however my gut feeling is he lacks the killer instinct to 'just do it' on a regularly-repeated basis. Good hold-up man, but lacks conviction. Too tentative to be a winner. Suspect Kamara may take his chance when it arrives though! I used to think Sargent was little more than a League 1 utility man until he got to play through the middle - an opinion I may never have formed had he been given the central striking opportunities Idah is currently enjoying (but not taking). If/when Pukki leaves, Norwich will need to recruit a top new striker, retain Sarge & use Kamara as intermittent 3rd back-up. Idah needs a full season loan just like Maddison & Cantwell did.
  9. I'd rather Idah had said "It's UP to me" as opposed to It's DOWN to me" - that indicates how he sees himself and the situation. Sounds like he's saddling himself with self-imposed pressure. Not going to find 'flow state' performance with that kind of self-talk is he? I'd love to see Tzolis play a central attacking role tonight; always figured he was recruited as a trainee Pukki and now seems an ideal time to give him a start. Marquinhos sweeping in from the right with pace and crossing high for Idah or cutting back low for Tzolis could be productive...
  10. I'd love to see Idah flourish. He has a powerful physique, basic, unrefined technique & a decent application. If he can keep his actions simple & find enough self belief to finish effectively we'll have a high quality forward. Realistically, I'm not expecting anything above a Carlton Morris-type career at NCFC though...
  11. It would take too much time to read all the responses to this post! Personally, I think season tickets for over 65's should be free-of-charge providing they've been NCFC ST customers for 20+ years. That would be a nice incentive!
  12. Here we go again; a small number of NCFC 'fans' taking cheap shots at two of THE most creative, innovative, dedicated, likeable people around! This time, the sniping has commenced before the latest (highly prestigious) video has even been published. Blimey, that's a new low! For a bit of perspective; 20k+ subscribers to the TNC channel indicates a HUGE amount of NCFC fans absolutely love what they do. Roll on 5pm tonight when the video drops...
  13. Given it's a game of sport, the phrase 'interfering with play' seems ironic to me! Why not allow disguised runs & moves from offside positions? Providing the strike is made by a player who remains onside, it should count. Keep it nice & simple...
  14. Some impressive highlight reels on You Tube for Keanu Baccus...
  15. The training facilities at Colney are way better than Playford Road, however I'd be amazed if Norwich City could turn Kieran McKenna's head. He'll be looking to win The Old Farm Derby on Boxing Day 2023...
  16. Absolutely not. I suspect he'll want to leave on a high, not a slump.
  17. It demonstrates how highly I (and 20.7k other subscribers) value their entertainment though! To give some context, TNC now have a greater number of subscribers than NCFC have Season Ticket holders...
  18. I watched the latest TNC last evening having set aside an hour specifically to enjoy Jack & Chris's discussion. I love what they do & how they do it. Right now, they're a lot more entertaining than the football!
  19. Beautifully written post FTW! I think SW will indeed want to leave a positive legacy - and right now, he's unlikely to be sitting on his hands wondering what to do about team performance & a seriously disengaged fanbase. Exploratory talks with potential new head coaches are almost certainly under way...
  20. That certainly puts a bit of perspective into what we normally chat about on here - I hope you and your family find all the strength you need Ricardo.
  21. Given all the questions will be sanitised by the club, the end product will be pretty much as they might have scheduled anyway. Putting a specific fan's name next to a question thinly comes across as 'fan engagement'. In reality, there's a huge disconnection of their own making.
  22. In the last month or so, he's gone from: "Integrity is a real big thing for me, and loyalty..." to "Hello Scotland!". Good example of someone changing their beliefs and values!
  23. Even my 17 y/o commented that the 2-minute period of respect hadn't been followed correctly. I also spotted some complaints from NCFC veterans on Twitter - hardly surprising. The whole thing appeared to be rushed...
