  1. For as long as he maintains his current drive and constant need to do better! As long as he has these characteristics and the club continue to improve and move forward and back him why can''t he be here for another 10 years? He''s 33/34, he could have another 35 years in management. Unless one of the top 6 clubs coming knock, which is very unlikely at this stage but can change, why does he need to go anywhere else? He can really build our club and we have to look now further than lambert as what can happen. He should learn from that and stay on the journey with us as long as he can! This club has huge potential as long as he is manager
  2. It is a funny phrase and as you say a largely get out excuse for a player not playing. There is clearly a difference in terms of executing certain things and gaining that extra yard which you get with match fitness but any manager gets their best players on the pitch. If hoolahan, howson, Brady, bassong (anyone deemed as a ''first name on the team sheet'') was not 100% match fit they would play!! Can you imagine Ronaldo or messi not playing because not match fit!! They might be eased back into action but they play. I think the truth is voo is not better than what we have and will not get in our team!! If he was that Good he would be playing
  3. Might be hard to get 3 deals over the line in the short timescale now?? Guess it depends how far down the line we are with any of them!!
  4. Could the Bournemouth bids just be a coincidence?? Could he have just spat his dummy out because he wanted to play? Started the season as 1st choice, missed chances, jerome has come in and played well and grabban wanted the opportunity yesterday and was frustrated? Other token is obviously he wants to go back to Bournemouth for whatever reason, but don''t see them as a better prospect than us!! Either way or for whatever reason, he has dug himself a massive hole and he is not coming back from it with the fan!! He has to be sold now! Can''t have the fans booing him!! Have a feeling people like Russell Martin will not put up with that lack of respect either
  5. Squad depth come the winter with injuries and suspensions and games coming quickly will be a huge factor! Clear to see our 11 at present will be competitive but worried by our cover in defence and forward options. As we all know a centre back and a forward player with a bit of a X factor will make us very competitive until January then we can re address and see where we are then and what we need!!
  6. Strongly agree that Olsson cost us far more goals last season than whitts by switching off at the back post! A fact neglected by many because he has pace! Olsson is poorer in a one on one situation, think Adam drury proved you don''t need to be quick to defend one on one against a winger!!
  7. Just the two most important aspects of the game then!!
  8. Bradley Johnson, is not a premier league player. No technical ability and his second touch is a tacklle!!
  9. My choice would be Assamabolonga (however you spell it) Young, so will be driven and wanting to improve. Re-sellable asset, can run the channels, is pacey and physical and good scoring record. Only question mark is his fitness and where he''s up to after his injury!! Only other one who I think is realistic and in our price range - Chris Martin - much improved since he left, and is used to and good at playing as a loan striker!! Whether he would come back or not is different story Too much risk I think with a foreign striker and we don''t have time for someone to get used to the premier league pace. Jerome and grabban will be useful with their pace and movement but don''t see either getting enough goals as front line striker. If they can chip in with 4 or 5 and we have a 10-15 goal striker it wil give us a chance
  10. Reading a lot about our lack of signings, ambition and money!! With only 2 weeks Saturday until the start of the season and a run of winnable games at home to start the same (which will be massively important to our survival) I am starting to get a little nervous!! I have full faith in Neil and McNally but with the importance of survival this year with the amount of TV money next year, surely calculated risks are required and paying a bit over the odds for a player is worth the risk!! If Neil thinks Brady will improve our team/squad why not pay the price hull want! If van dijk is as good as people like John Collins think and Neil admires him, why not offer something Celtic cannot refuse with the finances in scotish football!! Both are at a good age where they will have a re sale value and will improve, and we are debt free after all!! As a fan I don''t care if we are in the prem or the championship. I will be there home and away in either, and prob prefer the championship as it is nice to see your side win more often than not and not bankrupt you to go to the games!! But from the clubs perspective, we need to be a premier league side with the money involved from next season. There''s no guarantees as a very hard league but we need to give ourselves the best chance of staying up and we are lacking in both the final and defensive third at present!! The blue print of how to beat us was set by the likes of Wigan at Carrow road last season. We need investment and need to be a premier league side this time next year!!
  11. Yes exactly the same, starting to make a contingency plan!!
  12. A certain Lewis Grabban I think was also playing for Millwall in that final!!
  13. Hooper played in the scunny playoff league 1 final win over Millwall, know that for a fact as I was there in the scunny end!!
  14. Where is everyone planning on drinking / partying in London before the final? Sea of yellow and green in the capital, going to be a slow week!!
  15. Not a question of being a better fan as circumstances dictate sometimes, but as a season ticket holder you are guaranteed a ticket, and with a number of way of guaranteeing your ticket just surprised the number that haven''t!!
  16. Anybody else surprised by the number of season ticket holders who have not purchased their seat for what is the biggest game in many a fans life time? Family members who are not season ticket holders have been able to buy memberships and tickets in the same transaction today!! Very shocked. What reasons would be acceptable not to go to the game???
  17. It shouldn''t wind me up as much as it does but it does!! Ha And all this they''re not getting a designated pub in norwich, why should they? Why would any landlord want them in our fine city!!
  18. Without sounding obsessed with those lot down the road, I''m amazed how they are wetting themselves over, firstly the atmosphere and secondly the performance. They may beat us on Saturday, they may not, but Saturday was probably the worst game of the season in terms of footballing quality. Very nervy and lacklustre in terms of quality, ball was in the air more than on the floor, 5 yard passes were going into touch, was truly awful but highly contested. From the upper cobbold, the atmosphere sounded awful, especially second half when it was very nervy. Didn''t hear one song their famous ''north stand'' and it was created by the tannoy system playing annoying songs like singing the blues. I know its been a while since they''ve had a full ground but surely the other end of the stadium should be able to hear you singing? Annoying, deluded, live in the past tinpot club. Cant wait for the pitch invasion in front of them celebrating on Saturday, bring it on.
  19. There is no rivalry though because they couldn''t care less about us!! Horrible club, horrible place, horrible fans!! That''s it
  20. they had the west brom assistant manager on talk sport yesterday morning who said the deal was agreed in the morning but he didn''t arrive in the Midlands until the very last minute so very strange!! Maybe suggests he wasn''t keen on the move or may be awaiting / expecting Swansea to come in but very odd, especially as its clear Dorrans was part of the deal and we appeared to have that all sewn up and ready to sign dependent on Olsson going the other way
  21. What a shambles!! Just as everything was taking shape!! Did he have a contract with us?
  22. Someone like him or wisdom on loan for the season would be a great bit of business
  23. Clearly so I can go as usual and not have to try and get out if an awkward family event on the Saturday! In all seriousness have advocated and not understood why they move the least aggressive derby in English football to a Sunday silly o''clock kick off every time we play and now they''re wanting to move it back to the Saturday!! What are your chances!!
  24. Exactly!! Even if we lose olsson as many people believe we will, Garrido is a decent player!! Even from your list we still have players like surman, bassong and hoolahan as you say!! I don''t think all of those will be here come September but I also believe the squad needs a bit of freshness with a couple of new additions, even if only for morale and to bring that positivity after relegation, but as you say the basis of not only a good team but good squad is there!! Cardiff are one of the only other clubs in terms of depth who could compete with us!!
  25. Funny how people, especially on here, have certain expectations!! I remember reading many last pre season feeling very positive thinking we would finish in the top 10, now with more or less the same squad at present with a couple of additions, in a lower league, with a manager who clearly gives players more feeedom and players a high tempo positive brand of football, expectations are a lot lower and the club lacks ambition!!
