    What makes you think fans accept mistakes from players or managers for that matter? I''ve seen some players get absolute pelters from the crowd.[/quote]

    A players mistakes are soon forgotten though. One mistake & a referee is shit for ever.[/quote]

    Don''t agree, how about off the top of my head, Robert Green England versus USA.[/quote]

    Norwich players made shed loads of mistakes in every single game last season. Are you going to be giving them abuse because of it? Of course you aren''t. A referee makes a mistake & it''s very different

  4. Don''t you think that the perceived quality of the referee is down to losing the majority of games? Just have a look on here after a defeat. From the comments posted virtually every defeat is down to the referee. Yet the referee doesn''t get a mention after those rare games when a win is recorded. In those seasons in the championship & league one the wins far outweighed the defeats and so far fewer games were seen as being the referees fault.

    Ruddy article

    Dave Watson coached both Joe Hart and Ben Foster on a day to day basis while he was at Birmingham. From that experience he has probably come to the conclusion that they are both better than Ruddy,

    Relegation clauses

    There is no way that the £16M parachute payment will cover the wage bill of the current squad. Anyone who doesn''t think players will be sold is living in cloud cuckoo land. Similarly it is bound to be the better playerswho have a decent value who will be sold.

    Dave Watson

    It was Hodgson who asked Foster to come out of retirement. That''s why he was always going to be in the squad. The only issue is that Dave Watson obviously feels Forster is better than Ruddy.

    Dave Watson

    Dave Watson coached Ben Foster while he was at Birmingham so he is perfectly placed to know who is the better goalkeeper
  9. Ruddy will leave. Guaranteed.

    If he has a wage reduction in his contract then he will want to leave. If he hasn''t then the club will not be able to afford his wages so he will be sold. Simple.
  10. Do the high earners really have reductions for relegation in their contracts? Wolves were relegated without debts but were screwed by high earners on premiership wages they couldn''t get rid of because of the wages they were on. I would be very surprised if the high earners would''ve agreed to reductions because their stock was much higher at the time the contracts were signed & so the club would need to have pushed the boat out to get them to sign
  11. What is the wage bill going to be next season? Very doubtful that the parachute payment will cover it so how is it going to be paid?
  12. What planet are you on?

    Hughton Out

    [quote user="Citizen Journalist Foghorn"][quote user="ron obvious"]Those strikers have scored 3, 2 & 4 league goals - 2 more than our top 3.

    They had Anelka until recently as well ...[/quote]Well it''s one of two things, either A)  a scandalous waste of money from Hughton, or B) the cautious, sit on one goal, play for a 0-0 attitude meaning no striker will score many for us under the current regimeI think it is probably reason B.[/quote]

    It''s goals that matter not who scores them. West Brom have scored 9 more goals and conceded 5 less
  14. McNally is an even bigger clown than Hughton!! What is the point of saying we nearly signed someone? He could say Norwich tried to sign Ronaldo & Messi but the fact is we didn''t. Signing top notch players shows ambition. Saying someone was nearly signed is not ambition it''s pathetic!!

    Andrea Ranocchia rejects NCFC.

    It''s usually a sign of a club that doesn''t expect to sign anyone. Then they can placate the fans with "We didn''t manage to sign anyone but look at the ambition we showed in trying to sign those quality players". Its a trick Gold & Sullivan are famous for using at West Ham & before that at Birmingham as well
