    The current season

    I think the financial cost of not starting next year is far greater than writing this one off. Money will talk. They will try and finish this one but they will definetly start next year.
  2. Good to see another youngster extend his contract but judging by the photo with this article he might not have that much longer to make the breakthrough into the first team. It is now or never! https://www.pinkun.com/norwich-city/daniel-barden-pens-new-contract-at-norwich-city-1-6579638

    The season is over now

    https://www.imperial.ac.uk/news/196234/covid19-imperial-researchers-model-likely-impact/ This is the Imperial landing page and from there you can find the report. It is clearly written and easy to read. Makes some very stark points.
  4. It does seem irresponsible to let games take place at all if the situation is such that fans cannot attend. Exposing the players, staff and club personnel is unnecessary. Best thing to do is just call it off and we can have a do-over next year. Safety first.

    John Ruddy to return?

    I always thought Ruddy was one of the best keepers I have seen here so would love to see him back involved somewhere. We could do worse than have his experience involved around the squad or coaching setup.

    Decent windows

    These guys were very good when we had the double glazing done at work. Reasonable price and very tidy work. https://www.norwichwindows.co.uk/

    Derby in the doo doo.

    I don't think they can. I am sure the rules were changed to stop transfers of grounds and land between the owners and clubs. Also, any sale back to the club would have to be at market value as the parties are connected.

    Jordan Rhodes

    It was quoted at the time as being £5m. I think we expected them to move when it became obvious no body would pay that as they needed to clear his wages off the bill but once they had dug in they were then left with him. If they had asked for £1m he would already be a City player. for what it is worth I think he would be good signing if you can get the wages right. He will score goals in the Championship and is a cost effective back up option for what we have now. He was content to be involved from the bench and din't make the disruptive noises others have. The problem with signing an immediate first choice contender is that they don't often like waiting for long periods to play and with Pukki's form this year and last they would certainly have had to. There is always a need in a squad for players who are not regular starters but are happy to come on and do a job when called on.

    A couple of transfer rumours...

    Apparently Bowen has a 1 year option in the contract so their need to sell is less than it appears. would like to see him though but it may cost more than he would if he had 6 months left.

    Fire sale

    I do get the age issue but realistically he has until 33 or 34 at the top of his game. Bearing in mind what completely unproven strikers are changing hands for at the moment I can see more. Some of the fees paid to Championship clubs have been outrageous over the last few years, this only seems to be going up not down. Either way,I hope he stays.

    Where does it go from here?

    Can I ask, why do you 'support' Norwich? You seem to derive no enjoyment from them at all, in fact it seems that the whole club, the way it is run, the way it aims to operates just annoys you. Why would you willingly engage with something that seems to cause you so much consternation?

    Fire sale

    A few assumptions here but let's assume we did go down then I think the values you have may be a bit low. Godfrey - your value seems right, I would expect £20 - 30m with a decent sell on clause. If Pukki continues to score at anything close to the pace of the first half of the season you would have be looking at £30m plus for him. a proven goal scorer at premier league level who would have behind him 15 goals in a season in a team that got relegated should demand a good fee. I think Cantwell is looking like the other stand out performer at the moment, young, English and attacking running from deep. If he replicates the first half of the season he should be hot property in the Summer.

    Is Tim Krul our best keeper - EVER?

    I think Ruddy is much underrated by us, one of the most solid keepers I think we have had and did not look our of place in the top division at all. I think ability wise he is top two for me. Always had a soft spot for Gunn (snr) but I think Gunn (jnr) is rated higher than his performances warranted because of the family connection to the club. If he had come in without that I think we would have considered him to be a good keeper but not top draw.

    Palace on New Years Day

    Careful if you drive, I burnt a clutch out on one of old cars on the hills around Selhurst park once...bloody annoying.
