  1. I thought the tv picture had frozen, but it was Bowen showing his pace.
  2. Have the Madrid fans managed to turn up on time and get in safely?
  3. Southampton couldn’t get a kick against Liverpool reserves. Contrary to the PR, the Premier is not a competitive league and it will be even less so once Newcastle get going. It is predictable and boring.
  4. Cameron Jerome for me - celebrating our first Wembley goal (ignoring the og).
  5. I would think, over a season they should even out. 1 or 2 would be within that sort of range - when you are getting 4 or 6 for or against you, it is hard to not sense a bias.
  6. I didn’t think we should have sacked Farke, but getting rid of Smith wouldn’t make that right. Let’s give him some time, and hope he gets some input into our recruitment this summer.
  7. An observation - not a stick. He was the only member of that squad to do it. I can’t imagine any fan not wanting to see him desperate to play for Norwich, and giving 100% for the club. The question is, does he? Only he knows his view of any issues. If he pulls a Norwich shirt on again, I’ve no grudge and will back him as I would any other player.
  8. Looking back at the Championship celebrations at Villa Park - only one player put his shirt on back to front so that his name was on the front and not the team badge.
  9. Always enjoyed my trips to the North East - Newcastle, Sunderland, Middlesbrough, and Hartlepool. Nice people, and a beautiful part of the country. Good luck to Newcastle, I hope they hoover up trophies and annoy the previously super rich. It does mean some of the previous big clubs will six struggle for Champions League success - let’s see how the loyal overseas support holds up after a few seasons with no trophies.
  10. No massive fan of Webber, but I think he and his wife put long hours into doing their best for the club. He must be as disappointed with the signings as we are - not only poor, but decreasing in value. Let’s hope they develop in the Championship next season. I wish we had kept Farke. We didn’t, I see little benefit in asking for new owners, Webber or Smith to leave. They know what we have and what we lack, they are best placed to build back for next season. I don’t think the club can’t manage without him for a few weeks, and it is probably better for him and the rest of the board that they learn to do so.
  11. I believe it is more about mentality than physicality. Lots of excellent small tenacious midfielders over the years - but they were up for the fight and wouldn’t be bullied.
  12. Thank you to those who responded. I knew it wouldn’t be a yes / no answer - but interesting views from everyone.
  13. Does it incentivise ground development for us?
  14. I do notice a fair few of our fans can’t handle their drink. Sadly, people often laugh at these idiots making them think they are funny. Name, shame and ban, what a disgrace. I hope your daughter gets over it, and keeps faith with the majority who despise these low-lifes.
  15. I didn’t agree with letting Daniel go - but letting Dean go would be making things worse. He needs some time, at present how we play is dictated by the players at his disposal. Hopefully he has some input into the summer recruitment, and last summers who stay gain some confidence. Tough supporting the team at the moment, but let’s hope they can dig out a result somewhere.
  16. A matter of time until the same happens with China. The West sucks up to them for trade, they also own football clubs, time to massively reduce trade with them.
  17. Poland - players and FA stand strong and refuse to play Russia, English FA turns a blind yet again. The timing of this speaks volumes about how those titles were paid for - meanwhile we get slated for not competing with them.
  18. I believe Alyson Rudd would find this humour unbecoming for an annoying Premier League Club.
  19. Are we worse off than Palace or Brighton? Rich enough to stay up, but not to compete at the top. Season after season of mid-table nothingness - unless a richer owner takes over. Financially the top 3 will be Man City, Chelsea, and Newcastle. Arsenal, Spurs, Liverpool, and Man United can’t compete with them financially. I wonder how their fans, used to success, will feel in six or seven years time.
  20. I recall Farke getting slated by the much of the media for not playing Gilmour. Now, when he is picked, he is ineffectual. Maybe Farke was protecting Gilmour by not playing him, that would certainly appear to be the case now. The media made him the saviour, and then when he is a massive disappointment, are surprised when fans show their frustration.
  21. The sacking of Farke unraveled the unity at the club. I wonder who the players who wanted him gone were. I’m not seeing anyone playing better under Smith, and I don’t know what our playing style is now supposed to be. Just Weber showing more confidence in his signings than his Coach. Looking like misplaced confidence.
  22. Well done for giving an alternate view Branston. I think the problem tonight is that this is yet another poor performance, whatever the mitigation. I am also of the view that even with our missing players we would have been well beaten. Our squad is so poor, losing players makes little difference.
  23. I think the team has been boycotting matches for most of the season. Perhaps we need to re-think the new badge though - just go with a white flag.
  24. Scraping the egg of his face, having wasted more money than he criticised previous regimes for. Stabbed Farke in the back, but recruitment well short ….. yet again.
