    Where is Mario?

    I have a lot of time for Mario, when he was first in the champs he really was off the boil, he even said so himself. To recognise this fact publically and to make changes takes a lot and he became a very influential player. I'm not sure how influential he'll be in the prem as he relies a lot on his passing due to his pace being a little lacking, I'm not sure he'll get the same space as he did in the Championship but I'm hopeful he proves me wrong. I'm excited to see him back from injury and lining up in the Prem. I honestly hope he is one of the missing pieces of this season. I think with him in Midfield alongside Tryball/Tettey/Tryball and behind Steips we'd have a good enforcer, distributor and target man throughout the spine. I'm also counting down the days for Zimbo to get back in the line up, I think, whilst being an OK CB himself, he was brilliant at organising the whole defense which brought the best out of Godfrey, Aarons & Lewis.
  2. I think Hernandez is due back in training, so opens up a bit more width if he gets some game time. For me and guaging who is and isn't likely available. Krul Aarons - Godfrey - Amadou - Lewis Leitner & Tettey/Steips Buendia Cantwell Hernandez Pukki Dropping Mclean as Leitner and Mclean just doesn't work Dropping Steips from CAM as he hasn't made the step up yet, although would be interested to see how Steips does as a CDM, maybe a good role for him especially as we have seen him cover defensive duties! - Sit him covering the back 4 and let Leitner push forward... Bit harsh on Roberts, but would look to bring him in at half time / 60mins dependant upon how affective Hernandez or Buendia are

    I'm torn on him. I don't think he has hit the ground running this season. By the end of last season, he was absolutely phenomenal. I ended up stating he doesn't look like a football player but shows others up! He is definitely not a traditional #10 but does have a good vision and does more for the team in his defensive duties and the like. I think he set the bar high last year by his performances and hasn't made the step up as quickly as some others. I don't think he is a scapegoat, I don't think there is anyone else currently more suited to do role but I hope to see him get up to speed as he was clinical last season!

    Wouldn't mind seeing Harrison Reed back for a bit of cover!

    That’s your lot!

    The likes of Sheffield and Aston Villa may have spent more but I wouldn't say that relates to anything. We don't need to spend the money and still have a quality of squad higher than they have. If we valued our squad to AV or Sheff i'd say our team is valued more. We don't have to worry about the settling in process either!! They talk about buying Mings.... I'd say extending the contract of Aarons is better business. Far better player, who I think is worth more! Investing is only worth it if you're improving and to improve the Norwich squad would take fantastic scouting and finding hidden gems OR splashing the cash and taking the risk that a "known name" would improve but there isn't any guarantee and could ruin the team spirit we have. In short, if we don't get anyone else in I'm not too disappointed and quite pleased with the contract renewals and signings we've made (especially the youth) regardless of the league we have an exciting future!.
  6. Would be a good loan signing, I agree he's one of those players who always seemed to have "potential" but never seemed to make the grade for Man City (which is stupidly high admittedly) If we can get him on loan, 22 years old and we get him playing to his potential as we have with other players we are on a win/win, we get the benefit of him for a year, plus he's homegrown. It also puts us in good lights as a place to send other young talents! Fingers crossed we'd negotiate a buy clause that is reasonable (unlike Rhodes' reported 7million) but even if not this is a good option to challenge Buendia my only concern is whether this opens the door for Cantwell to go out on loan again. I will trust Webber and Farke to do the right thing as I am one of the doubters who said Pukki would never amount to anything when he signed. Just goes to show what I know!
  7. All the names flying about. I see that Saido Berahino has been released from stoke after his drink driving ban, used to have a lot of potential. Would he be a decent free signing here? someone for Daniel Farke to get on the straight and narrow?

    Parking tickets from stoke

    Hi I read on social that Harvester is aware of this, and have had the tickets canceled. The Suggestion was to call the Harvester (think the guy was called Neil) who has been busy with the calls all day, and get it confirmed over the phone

    This is true, I just liked having a 5% a year investment too. Just incase anyone hasn't received their email - here is the info: What happens next? In addition to the payment of Club credit and the Promotion Bonus the Club has the ability to repay the Canaries Bond upon promotion to the Premier League. After considering the best way forward for the Club, the board have decided to use the proceeds of the return to the Premier League to fully repay the Canaries Bond. This will not affect the annual interest payment or the payment of the Promotion Bonus but no further interest will accrue from the repayment date. Repayment will occur on 9 May 2019, the anniversary of the Canaries Bond issuance. Key Dates 9 May 2019 – The Club will fully repay the Bonds together with accrued interest. Your principal investment and 5% interest will be repaid by cheque. The 3% Club Credit interest will be loaded onto your Bondholder card. Club Credit will be redeemable for the purchase of club shop merchandise and be redeemable against tickets and hospitality packages and matchday purchases such as food & drink for the 19/20 season. The Club will send out a separate communication to all Bond Holders with further details on how to redeem the Club Credit. 30 September 2019 – The Club will pay the 25% Promotion Bonus in accordance with terms of the offer. Your 25% interest will be paid by cheque.

    Got my email, bit annoyed about them returning the investment, means for the next few years I no longer benefit from the interest. I can see why the club won't want the debt around their necks, but they asked the fans to help, which they did, in return for the success, they don't want to continue their return of 5% interest and 3% Club spends each year.

    Sorry, just to Clarify my opinion. I'd not have him back in the squad, regardless of his intention, i believe all bridges have been burnt here. That being said it seems as though his attitude has changed @ Reading, with his constant battle with injury and returning to the squad, so perhaps he has worked out he is the issue. I must admit I am torn on ability though, some games for us he looked the full package, others he didn't turn up at all.
  12. So with Premier League looking more and more likely, where does this leave Nelson. If he were to come back, on his hands and knees asking for another chance, stating he'll definitely change his ways...... is he given it, is he good enough as back up to Pukki in the Prem? or are we still looking to move him on to pastures new?

    Unexpected Bonus

    I put some money in, not a great deal but enough. I saw it as a way of getting 5% interest each year and a 3% club spends. This was primarily for my daughter as I wanted to put some money aside to start her some savings, and the banks aren't paying much interest, so it was a win win, helped us and helped the club. Couldn't see the club hitting administration so thought it was safe enough. Never did I imagine we'd be promoted within the 5 years, so had more or less written that extra 25% off - I'll be jolly pleased if and when that comes about. Still not counting my pennies though, we've still got at least 1 more point to make or watch leeds mess it up again to secure it.
