  1. Twitter is great for spreading serious info that is silenced from other channels, like child abuse cover-ups, but it is hideous when the plebs get hold of it to prattle on about penalities.However, it is totally unacceptable for fans to be called mongs.

  2. What a steaming pile of spoilt little brat rubbish.If we were attacking all the time, would we have more points?  No certainty of that at all!We have become harder to beat and have the best quality defence we have ever had.  We struggled to get a quality striker in during January, but we won''t in the summer if we stay up, giving us more options than the declining Holt, makeshift Kamara or never good enough Becchio.If at the start of the season someone had said to you "It won''t be pretty this season but we will be 8 points of relegation with 9 to play" you would, if you are honest, bitten their hand off.So why act like a child now because you have not been "entertained" enough?Grow up and support your team - we have a very average squad yet through some dirty work we will have money to spend in the top division next season - thanks to Chris Hughton.[quote user="CJ"]Sorry but we are sleep walking into a disaster either this season or next . Ch has no idea how to create an entertaining side and I am pretty certain a new manager could get us attacking and entertaining.

    Is there any point staying in this league if every game we approach it like we are the underdogs from a lower league.

    I know will get loads of stick but fed up hearing how skillful other sides are .

    It has got to stage where our strikers get nose bleed when they get in oppos box and snatch at any chances. It is only when the players forget managers script as against Everton that we do anything!

    Sorry but this is meant to be entertaining how could anyone describe this as such[/quote]

  3. Ah it''s the old "two up front is an attacking formation" idiocy again.How attacking is it if the other team back the midfield and starve off the supply? Not at all.How attacking is it if the opposition have good full backs who push up and starve the supply of crosses?  Not at all.How attacking is it if we have to put Wes on the left or on the bench to play two strikers?  Not at all.442 does not automatically = attacking play. 

  4. Congratulations for believing one of the most simplistic, mindless ideas doing the rounds right now.The idea that if we had gone "lambert" we would have won more if "combined" with defensive tactics is just so bloody stupid I can''t understand how you can even think it is true.I have also seen and heard an even more stupid version which basically is "if we had had a go at teams with two up top blah blah we would have won more".The logical fallacy should be evident any but the most ignorant.We have kept it tight, and managed to grab points and be difficult to breakdown.  The inevitable thing is that we won''t score as many.  You cannot attack AND defend in depth at the same time!We have a small and lets face it average squad and yet we are 8 points off the drop.To me that vindicates keeping it tight and grinding out the points we have.  It is not pretty but the alternatiev, based on the evidence from Villa, is that we could be going down if we had still had gung-ho lambert.

    One last point I would make.  The key player who has allowed us to keep it tight enough to survive is Bassong.  Would we have attracted him without Hughton here?No.

  5. Holt had a poor game?Some of you people need to get a pair of eyes.Holt and Hoolahan were IMMENSE last night.  Their closing down and breaking up of the Spurs play in their own half was fantastic.  Both tired because of that in the second half, but the point was gained because of their work rate.I despair at how clueless some of you are.

  6. "

    If true not the sort of signing likely to take us to the next level to establish ourselves in the PL"Some of you need to wake up to reality.  The next level, mid table consistently, is a totally different league.  It means players costing millions, or even if free, costing 30,40, 50k a week in wages.WE DON''T HAVE THE MONEY.We need to survive.  Lets wait and see who we get in, how they perform and what the table says at the end of the season shall we?

  7. I''m totally aware of the role he is playing and what it is about.  He is still under-performing.[quote user="Mr Brownstone"]

    [quote user="kellybrook"]

    If we already had Danny Graham signed up, then moving on an underperforming 31 year old as a make-weight is fine.  Until that happens, it would be suicide for Hughton if we went down.



    He''s not underperforming, he''s playing a different role. How many decent chances has he missed?


    If Spurs are in for Hooper then it''s all over anyway.


  8. 4-2-3-1 is a formation designed to pack the midfield while allowing the lone striker to hold up play and bring in the attacking 3 midfielders as he can.That''s why I despair when the cretin sitting behind me screams for Holt/Morison to get in the middle all the time.  It is a total lack of understanding of the tactics being employed.Normal for Norfolk.

  9. Lets sort out all this whining.If we had Ruddy (shaky first season, booed several times), Whittaker (the guy most of you moaned about because he played in Scotland, arrived injured and was rubbish, apparently) and Bassong (not the answer, too expensive blah blah) were in the team on Sat, we might have got something out of it.  Strength at the back allowing our midfield to worry about attacking a bit more.As it is, we have Bunn in goal.  our RESERVE keeper.  Reserve meaning, good enough to cover a few games, but usually not good enough for half a season, otherwise they bugger off to get first team football. Russell Martin who we knew was not good enougnh last season, and Bennett, who is an average kid.So the answer is not "he''s shit". "Hughtons shit".The answer is a lack of squad depth.

    Now I know many of you are simply blinded by your hatred of Hughton and Calderwood, and even a record run to put us mid-table was not enough for you, but the reality is our first 11 is good, but with Ruddy, Whittaker, Holt and Bassong out recently WE WILL STRUGGLE.Hence the bids for Graham (not good enough, Swansea reject, too expensive) and Hooper (too expensive,  too short, too young blah blah) bids.  Hence the rumour of Curtis Davies.  Hence bringing in another keeper, one who Swansea wanted a year ago as well.The bigger worry is why soo many Norwich fans have turned into moaning gits.  Big time has gone to their heads, nobody is good enough and everyone we might bring in is too expensive.Stupid.

  10. If Hughton keeps us clear of the relegation zone that will be a great achievement.  We will have survived the second season and have 60 million quid in our pocket. Stop comparing Hughton to Lambert, the situations are totally different.  Lambert jumped ship because he could see our squad and buying power was very limited for this season.  Hughton has brought in Bassong and Tettey and both look bargains.Give the guy som frigging credit and forget Lambert.
