    whilst I don't dispute this, do you see any logic behind us doing this deal since we are likely doomed to go down already? Is this a sign of us not giving up yet or could Duda be a plausible permanent deal if we go down and he has impressed?

    He'll want to impress, so other Clubs come in for him in the summer. 

    Could work in our favour but he's got a lot of work to do.

    Another poor signing getting as bad as the mcnally era which Webber was so critical about 

    Wasn't he brought in as back up to Jamal? He has been replaced by a better option. 

    So, not a poor signing at all.


  3. Don't know what the argument is here, I've supported Norwich for 50 years, back then we were a lower Division 1 upper Division 2 side and apart from the odd spell where we've overachieved/underachieved we're pretty much in the same place. 

    The game itself has changed though, back then we looked up to giants like Sunderland, Forest, Derby, Wednesday, Coventry, Leeds, Stoke, West Brom and that lot down the road. 

    The Teams that have overtaken us from those days include Watford, Brighton, Bournemouth, Palace and Villa who'd had some time in Division 3. All of which have mega rich owners ploughing huge sums in to keep them competitive. 

    Remaining largely competitive when the rest have changed their business model to stay ahead of us should be acknowledged for the achievement that it is.

    As for the Maddison comparisons, Buendia is better now than Maddison was when he was here, so the fee we'd command for Emi in the summer would be very high indeed.

    Thing is Wacky, when we sold Madison, we couldn't see where the goals would come from. 

    12 months later, we'd been promoted, were raving about Emi and, despite  the appreciation we all have for Madison were in awe of Buendia. 

    .... in other words, there's always another talent out there, I just hope Webber has found him.

    Get used to it we have some useful players who have proved they can do it at this level and will be off at the end of the season.  It maybe 3,4 or 5 players but don't kid yourself not one of them will be going to a top six side.  They will be off to Brighton, Palace or Southampton and the prices being paid will reflect the status of the buying club.  

    Not sure you've read the script, Tottenham have been linked with Aarons according to the press nearly all season. 

    Godfrey has been linked to a whole host of big Clubs, some abroad, playing in the Champions League....

    .... 'and the prices paid' will reflect how much Webber is willing to accept. 


  6. Love this, interesting that some haven't contributed, I'm hoping that we can make a fight of it.

    We've  been relegated 8 times in my lifetime, for different reasons.

     I don't mind being outclassed given the financial constraints. I understand that sometimes we'll lose a star player or Manager which derails our season.

    Injuries to Wes and Timm could have seen us survive at key points in a season.

    What I have trouble dealing with is the sides who clearly had the ability but for whatever reason couldn't or wouldn't perform.

    I don't think that is happening this season, if we ultimately fail it won't be for the want of trying.

    Then of course you have the bias factor.

    Did they want us to go 2 up against Spurs. Did they want Wolves to equalise against Liverpool.

    Of course the answer is debateable but the more you see, the more you wonder.

    Are we are sacrificing entertainment, excitement and goals to ensure the right result for Foreign TV audiences who only want to see the big clubs winning.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Nail, head, I've been saying it for years. 


  8. True Indy and around we go, Villa fans always maintain that they are a Big Club and of course they are. 

    Just like Newcastle, they spend a fortune, yet never seem to make a sustained challenge, they may have one good season, then sink back among the strugglers. 

    Managers come and go, huge sums are invested, yet the outcome is always the same. If Villa do go down there will be questions to answer over FFP.

    Spurs didn’t buy any players from Jan 2018 to July 2019. They are still in the Premier League. Conspiracy disproved 😉

    Not really,  they spent a hell of a lot of money building a huge Stadium, which allows more punters through the doors, which will attract more advertising, sponsorship and for their worldwide audience, it'll look great on the tele. 😎
