  1. And of the seasons he played right back we had two promotions, two midtable Prem finishes and one relegation. Facts don''t lie. He''s not big enough, strong enough, good enough in the air or tactically aware enough to play at centre half.
  2. This idea that four managers have played Russ is irrelevant. Lambert and Hughton played him right back. It was Adams and Neil that played him centre half. In that those three seasons, we''ve had a half of a season where we''ve performed, the other two and a half have been poor with the defence being the biggest problem. I have no issue with him being at the club as second choice right back or fifth choice centre half. To have him in the team virtually week in week out at centre half is suicide.
  3. Statistics can be made up to prove anything. Forfty per cent of people know that. Interesting.
  4. [quote user="VanWink"]"fuelled by racism and bigotry" What do you actually mean by that? I voted for Brexit but don''t recognise your characterisation.[/quote] Key words are "fuelled by" ie. not everyone who voted out was a racist but a good number were and that won it for the Brexit side. Without the racists, remain wins handily.
  5. [quote user="morty"][quote user="Herman"]It''s very similar. People voted for change and if that meant ignoring any sensible argument then so be it. A hell of a lot of people went through with both without thinking of the consequences.[/quote]Its only similar to you because you didn''t want Brexit.[/quote] Both wins were fuelled by racism and bigotry. In what way can you not see the similarities?
  6. Of those 6 starts each: R Martin 4 at home / 2 away R Bennett 2 at home / 4 away R Martin: 1 league one team, one second bottom team, two newly promoted teams, Newcastle and Forest R Bennett: 1 premier league team, bottom team, Ipswich, Sheff Wed, Bristol City, Birmingham. Stats say our defence is tighter, in harder games with Bennett over Martin.
  7. R Martin starts: 6 Clean sheets: 0 Conceded: 10 R Bennett starts: 6 Clean sheets: 3 Conceded: 5
  8. You have to say that overall he did a fantastic job and I''m slightly worried now he''s gone.However, he is not immune from criticism, and this season has been shambolic in terms of the lack of investment in August, the quality of the signings we did make and the total inexperience of our management team not being addressed.However, I would feel more comfortable about getting promotion with him at the helm in August as I think he''d get it right.
  9. [quote user="YorkshirePudding"]From the OPs logic, anyone who signs is a MISS until they play, and until then may the only become a HIT if they do well. Priceless.[/quote]I can''t work out if this is tongue in cheek or not?Of course they''re a miss if they never play.  Huh?

  12. Jesus!  I thought the point of this board was to have a reasoned debate and a bit of fun.  Not to hammer someone coz they dare to question the success of the manager, club or players.Let me re-phrase the original post so it''s better suited to your sensitive natureWhich of Neil''s signing have been hits and which have been misses (not including youngsters):Klose - HITBrady - HITWisdom - HIT (will come good - definitely has quality)Pinto - HIT (will come good - definitely has quality)Mulumbu - HIT (will come good - definitely has quality)Dorrans - HIT (will come good - definitely has quality)Andreu - HIT (will come good - definitely has quality)Naismith - HIT (will come good - definitely has quality)Jarvis - HIT (will come good - definitely has quality)Mbokani - HIT (will come good - definitely has quality)Bamford - HIT (will come good - definitely has quality)Have I missed anyone?

  14. [quote user="Lessingham Canary"]Pinto is not a miss, just not a hit yet ! 2 good games and 2 not so good, give him a few more games.[/quote]I''m not saying Pinto, Bamford or any of the others won''t come good, but judged on their impact this season (or so far in their time at Norwich) you''d have to say he''s a miss (so far).
