    Would be Naismith #2 - a player at very end of career seeking final pay check with nothing to prove. No thanks

    Hasn’t played since early November so fitness might be an issue

    Football manager suggests a player worth around 5 million who is championship standard. How accurate that is - anyone’s guess!! He seems to be a central midfielder who can play wide right as well

    Might be physicality is what the coaching team are signing - but proof will be in pudding. We certainly need it having looked lightweight in the middle

    Why we will be relegated

    Actually Hootun kept us up. Boring certainly but it worked. I also think we might have stayed up if we hadn't sacked him. Again boringly. But maybe we needed three or four tedious seasons to establish and then begin to work out how to attack via better investment.

    Why we will be relegated

    In the premiership defence is more important than attack. Unless you are top six you have to shut up shop and only then work on scoring goals - boring but true. And hence why so many bottom sides play negative football. We, on the other hand, opted to play open attacking football and - even more naively- failed to upgrade an already leaky defence. Because of that we are where we are. bottom line is that our individual players are better than our overall team, especially in terms of shutting up shop. In this division a team that cannot keep clean sheets will always be relegated

    Duda signed

    Strikes me as a waste of resources. We have fluffed our lines and barring a miracle are down. We need defenders and permanent contracts not a six month loan for an attacking midfielder

    The Great Escape mini-league

    It’s over. Anyone can see that. The worst points haul at this stage of all our premier seasons. Some good incidual players and raw talent but not enough physicality or quality to compete. Every impartial fan says the same - we don’t deserve to be doing better given the refusal to spend on promotion. And don’t give me VAR - the table is nit lying. We are bottom for a reason and will be doing down. Which makes spending money on a midfield six month loan rather inexplicable. We should be signing players for the future ahead of the likely exodus

    Farke getting off lightly

    I think most reasonable people can see that poor Farke has been hung out to dry. Would you criticise Lewis Hamilton for failing to do well if he was given a cheap hatchback to race in?

    Bounce straight back up?

    Yes I can see us going down, losing out to other teams for top players and then overspending in others and then just missing out. We have been there before and don’t tend to do well when we fancy ourselves

    Match thread v Man Utd.

    Any players considering a move to Norwich will have even more serious doubts now. It amazes me how many still maintain there is a genius plan at play at NCFC when we can’t buy a win for love nor money!

    Duda done deal according to father 🙏

    A better analogy would be Mrs DCB running in happy because she purchased a speed boat when the family car was in need of replacing...

    Duda done deal according to father 🙏

    Hope you are right. And I look forward to seeing him play But, sadly, I am less excited with the deal overall as I have reservations. How long for him to bed in? I ask because his father has stated openly that he only wants to play in the top division and, given that we have so few points, we are very, very unlikely to be in that division beyond this summer. So then we lose him having paid quite a chunk for what gain exactly? I guess the hope is that he helps us survive. But haven't we done the 'too little too late panic signings' before and had claimed we have learnt from them? At this stage young promising full time signings would surely be the prudent option given that few have survived with 14 points at this stage. And again given our leaky defence- one injury away from disaster - I was hoping for a really decent young CB and CDM who could transition into our next season. I will put my tin hat on.

    Good signing but seems a strange one given that we are scoring goals but not defending so well. Let us hope it is just a first buy and that CB is coming hot on his heels... I remember another season when everyone could see we needed a CB but kept buying number 10s!

    Paradox in defence

    Here is something that has me scratching my head. Taken individually 3/4 of our defence are very highly respected and said to be worth millions - Godfrey, Aarons and Lewis. And yet collectively our defence has been poor last season as well as this. 1. Are they over rated? 2. Are they too young to play together at same time? 3. Are they struggling to defend due to tactics played? 4 Are they better attacking than defending? 5. Are they let down by midfield? 6. Do they just lack experience?
