  1. I suspected Norwich wouldn't beat Watford because we were (and barring a miracle, still are) on a downward trajectory. Most of us can see the team is less-than-buoyant - and lots of things need to change. I predict another defeat simply because the other team are likely to be better organised with more motivation. Norwich 0-2 Luton. Hope I'm wrong!
  2. Stuart Webber literally revolutionised Norwich City! Inevitable he'll move on; when he does, it'll be a huge loss...
  3. Set pieces could decide this game. Mazy runs from players like Cantwell, Dowell & Nunez will encourage a few reckless tackles outside the box. Achieving centrally-located free-kicks likely to make the best goal-scoring opportunities. Attacking full-backs + Hernandez need to win plenty of corners too...
  4. Excellent point LDC - it's scientifically proven that the human brain loves what's familiar. Marissa Peer talks about it here:
  5. Given a desperate Premier League club 'may' stump-up £10-15m for his services, doesn't that show how valuable his all-round play & goals (still) are? Similar to Jamie Vardy, he's looked after himself; I hope Norwich do all they can to retain his services for another 2 years. Sargent & Idah are not (yet) adequate for a starting place in the Premier League, that's for sure...
  6. Steve Cooper was struggling to get the cones out at training this morning... https://twitter.com/agb1nufc/status/1577020487024058368?s=20&t=tkMZ-I-WTeLkgcdtwfvkXg
  7. Out with 'Farkeball' & in with 'Turgidball' doesn't sound particularly attractive...
  8. I see people are calling LDC names again! I see things both ways; LDC makes extremely valid points. Others don't agree, citing the obvious - namely Potter 'proving himself at a higher level', 'short career', 'making more £' etc. - as if that's all that matters. Thing is, whatever any of us choose to do in life depends on what we believe & value. To assume anyone believes the same as us, or automatically values the exact same things as us is folly. We're all different - and that's why we each make different decisions. Personally, I think Chelsea FC has a notoriously toxic work culture. If Potter had the same values as me, he'd steer well clear because he'd value peace-of-mind more than £. Potter has made a choice based on his personal level of emotional comfort. Good for him - he's having a go & will be well-paid. Maybe it'll work out for him, however my gut feeling is Chelsea are unlikely to achieve Champions League status this season...
  9. That's a very good point; I used to love watching Hucks draw two defenders in & then bisect them with neat acceleration & leave both behind. It was his trademark move to get into advanced space. Rachica appears to possess similar raw potential, but little desire to produce. Perhaps Dean Smith should send Rashica for a beer & a chat with Eadie & Hucks - followed by some personal coaching to learn how to do it...
  10. I think Pukki needs adequate recovery - as @Mason 47 says, the guy has barely had a break in 4 years! Providing we can out-muscle & out-play other teams using other resources, it will serve everyone well to slowly re-introduce Pukki for the last 20 minutes of the next few games...
  11. I'll happily admit there is nobody close by who crazes me in the Upper Barclay. Been in the same seats there with my sons since 2003/4 season & we have some lovely folk around us...
  12. If anyone doubts the importance of culture - in particular inclusion & welcoming a new team member, Núñez' reaction says it all! By comparison, Rachica looks morose...
  13. Attitude-wise, I'm delighted both new signings were not put off by what happened to Christos Tzolis. I'm hoping they each have self-belief in abundance because that is what NCFC have been missing...
  14. Wow, all this Kenny-bashing is a bit depressing to read! He's an influential contributor who's likely to thrive by having an injection of talent around him....
  15. I think there's a potential top performer in Tzolis - I'm delighted it's only a loan. Hope he turns it on & enjoys himself next season...
  16. I think Pukki has plenty more to offer Norwich City. In an ideal world, I'm hoping he helps us gain promotion & is rewarded with a decent contract extension. If he continues to look after himself, he can easily emulate Vardy...
  17. Just watched a Levi Colwill highlight reel. He looks incredibly sharp & extremely effective at picking out an accurate forward pass. He's likely to be in high demand...
  18. Was that when Captain Sensible came out on stage stark naked playing his guitar? If so, I was there...
  19. I detest all these thumb-sucking & shushing the crowd celebrations. Same with opposition players standing in front of the ball to prevent a quick free-kick being taken - youngsters imitate their behavior & it pollutes youth football. I'd like to see more discipline in the game & welcome players being booked for silly behaviour. Perhaps it will make them think a bit? Far fewer players take their shirts off to celebrate nowadays - they're aware if they do, their team mates may have to play with 10 men.
  20. I wonder how much effort was put in from NCFC to encourage yellow & green colours? We managed it before with Woodfordes...
  21. If Anglian Home Improvements can provide windows in any colour, why can't they put up a sign to match the rest of the stadium? Been to Carrow Road today to buy my son a shirt & we both thought that signage just looks wrong. Be OK at Bolton Wanderers maybe, but we play in yellow & green! I wonder who at NCFC 'negotiated' this sponsorship? Poor procurement...
