    Didn't he have one of the highest successful pass rates last season, if you look, when he played?

    Grim Injury News

    I can't ever recall having four CB's out injured since 1976 - no doubt someone will correct me! But it is a highly unusual situation if it happens. With a permitted squad of 25 few teams would have more then four CB's so it's not a case of not a case of lack of investment, just a case of extremely bad luck! Truly scary though facing the in form Champions with an extremely makeshift defence, and potentially a bit of a makeshift midfield. Hope they go easy on us!

    Name your worst ever actual Norwich XI

    Kane never scored for us - a bit tongue in cheek! I should have chosen Mike Sheron maybe in hindsight. Elliot Ward made some huge howlers - to be fair it's hard to choose bad CB's, as did Bassong & Docherty at time, but they both won player of the season once each so hard to pick them! Some people chose Fleming who was awesome with Malky - so not an easy choice. Had a nice chat with Ward at Whittlingham Country Park where he was walking his dog - nice bloke - very honest about NCFC questions - maybe too honest!

    Russ Martin goes to Walsall

    Glad he''s found somewhere to continue his career - I would think he will be pleased with a first role like this - good luck to him - top bloke and pro.

    Unless we are a regular top 6 Prem Club we could never have kept him Surfer.

    To be a regular top 6 Prem Club is so unlikely to happen as there have only ever been 6 ever present teams in the Prem since it started!

    He will be Champions League/England standard.

    Hardly any clubs are therefore likely to have the money, and potential to hold on to Maddison so his leaving really does have nothing to do with the ownership of our Club

    Kevin Beattie Dies Aged 64.

    A top player for them in his day, and no age RIP
  9. Will be at home with a load of family and friends sundhine, bbq, beer and a World Cup semi-final - does it get any better than that - apart from the same for a World Cup final and winning!

    Squad Investment

    So realistically if we sell Maddison for 20M and Josh for £10M how much do you think will be made available to lessen our weakened squad?

    We so need some proven attacking options - can we afford any?

    We need some proven uk players in my opinion - but not sure we can afford them!

    Josh Murphy

    We may get transfer fees in stage payments- but that''s a cr@p and stupid excuse from someone supposedly in the know!

    So do we pay everyone the full price up front, and everyone else pays us in instalments - if we do we are complete mugs! I don''t think even we lack that much business sense!

    Farke out survey

    You can''t please all supporters, all the time. I personally think our style of football has improved, generally, over the course of the season - the Villa game at home as an example.

    But fans nowadays demand instant success, so if there is any perceived under performance for 6 months to a year, a change in manager is needed.

    This ignores the cost of that change, and weakening the purchasing power for buying players.

    The custodians of our Club have to take account of these aspects - fans don''t!

    But look at Leeds how many managers - no real success.

    I am not naive, and our current model may well be uncompetitive, and we may need to look for a new owner and outside investment, but this also has risks.

    I personally think we should therefore wait and see what happens until about December and, perhaps then, it might be time to review the situation with the Coach, set up and ownership.

    The fans are the only constant in a Club and, as a result, can drive that process. I think early next season though is too soon to start that process.

    Wes off

    Wes has been a fantastic player for the Club, but the time is right to part ways.

    I''ve supported Norwich since 1976, and I don''t think I''ve seen a player quite in the mould of Wes, and I''m not sure, bearing our current circumstances, that I ever will do again.

    Hard to believe we managed to buy such a player for just £250,000 what an absolute bargain!

    Somehow can''t see us replacing him with anyone half as good for a lot more than that!

    Wishing him all the best for his future, wherever that lies.

    Ref on Saturday..

    Ref''s have a tough job and, are often criticised, but we should not need to be the talking about them after the game.

    I don''t like to criticise refs, but...... this was possibly the most inept performance by a referee I have ever seen in some 40 years.

    No one decision cost us the game, but if the correct bookings were delivered, then Cardiff would have had to have been more cautious in their approach, and could have maybe had a player sent off!

    The stats show Cardiff committed 23 fouls, and Norwich 8, Cardiff bookings 2 Norwich 1 - and that ignores all the fouls against us that the ref missed, and also some other bizarre decisions.

    Add these to his unfathomable penalty decision against Hull away, then surely the FA must have huge question marks about this guys ability to referee at this level - or perhaps any level!
