  1. I’m sure we will be told in due course that they left no stone unturned, this last 24 hours, to bring in cover at centre back. 1) Able to head away opposition set-pieces - not a requirement. 2) Able to put foot through ball - not a requirement. 3) A degree in zonal marking a strong requirement. 4) Able to keep possession of the ball between penalty area and centre circle providing no opposition player within 20 yards. 5) Able to make 5-yard sideways passes. 6) Able to pass back to the keeper ad finitum. Probably not many centre halves out there fitting the bill.
  2. I can’t see how any genuinely clued up Norwich City fan can defend the club’s current defensive situation. The Championship has games taking place with barely time to take breath. There should be at the very least four centre-backs and an up and coming youngster that could possibly fill the position at a push. We have become such an easy team for opposing managers to plan against. A weak centre will just make things even easier.
  3. This is total incompetence by the club and rather indicates the level of ambition for this season. To end up with two ‘half-crocks’ and a player who has barely played the last year or so, beggars belief. The defence has been Norwich’s achilles heal under Farke and it doesn’t look like improving anytime soon. It won’t be long before Tettey will be back in defence......until he gets injured..... Who then? Hernandez joining Byram and Dowell on the lengthy sidelines?? When is this cycle going to end?
  4. We will never be able to replace Godfrey’s superb long cross-field passes to Aarons.
  5. Let’s be brutally honest, the poorest performing employee of NCFC this calendar year has been Farke himself. His stock must have fallen amongst the squad with his team selections, tactics and use of substitutes, providing far more questions than answers. His comments, justified or not, show a manager feeling the pressure.
  6. I guess that means that Buendia will definitely be starting today, then.
  7. Hernandez has played well since returning from injury and has more often or not looked our most threatening option. No way does he deserve not to start. A ‘ 75% fit ‘ Buendia is all that is needed for his return to the side. Play him and placate him.
  8. Can Farke be trusted to show complete faith in Buendia and start him against Preston? Would not want to see him on the bench because Farke thinks “his head is not in the right place”. Give him plenty of TLC. Nothing south of £30m to any vultures circling.
  9. Whilst he is at Norwich, Buendia should start every game. Regardless. First name on the team sheet for me.
  10. Does anybody know the record number of consecutive defeats a manager has suffered without being sacked?
  11. Terrific assist from Aarons......unfortunately. That on its own should be enough to bring plenty more vultures circling for his signature.
  12. 7 assists in 176 games?!? With that appalling output I’d want more than a goal every four and a bit games from Hugill. 35k a week?.....it’s bloody scandalous how much an average footballer earns these days. Can’t we do better than this?
  13. So we are going to end up the only promoted club to be relegated. Has this happened to any other club that has gone up as champions?
  14. Brilliant from Hernandez. Let’s hope he’s moved into a bungalow....
  15. I think Cantwell can prove to be a great asset next season - I don’t understand why he is dismissed so readily.
  16. .....and that sums up the season..... VAR offside......concede a goal.
  17. Farke will have to perform one of his so-called miracles to shake off the losing mentality of this group of players ahead of the new season. It’s bad enough being relegated...but the way they have gone down is numbing.
  18. Assuming the result ends as expected, we have now lost every match that Klose has started. Unsurprising or coincidence?
  19. The whole season summed up in 45 minutes... S***e!
  20. Jesus wept! Solanke set up for the fourth by a Leicester player... Unbelievable! It still won’t save than.
  21. Bournemouth have had more luck in 35 minutes of football than we have had for the entire season so far.
