    We need a Plan B

    Others have mentioned it but our Plan Bs are all injured. We aren’t going to play another way, the only way we change things up is to have some options that can alter a dynamic of it, like the pace of a Hernandez. The problem is the squad is so threadbare the bench doesn’t offer many options. Theres clearly something about Roberts that hasn’t earned him Farke’s trust yet, he looked lively when he came on but Farke clearly didn’t want to make the change earlier when Roberts was the only decent option to change things up on the bench. I was genuinely worried yesterday with how visibly frustrated Emi was getting he was going to do something rash, I thought he should have been subbed but then you look at the bench and there wasn’t an option equally or more likely to get a goal IMHO.
  2. It was always going to happen, instead of enjoying the Man City result and performance for what it was, people were believing for some reason that we were going to walk over any other established PL teams.

    Buendia's Transfer fee

    There really is, it will be done on earnings. Absolutely nobody cares how many foreign tax paying millionaires we bring in to the country.

    Chris Hughton

    I could listen to him talk about football for hours, never want to watch a minute of his Norwich side play again.

    Now do you understand??

    I’ve always thought we could beat anyone on our day. We still aren’t finishing top 4.

    The day the spectacles fell off

    We got beaten by a better side today, we are in the Premier League, people best get used to that happening more often than they are used to.

    If we’re going to play our way…….

    Having watched the first three games I’m convinced we will be fine this year. There is enough in this team to have a good chance to beat most sides and give the top sides a scare. It’s a young side with virtually no PL experience, yes there will be losses playing our way, but we will learn and continue to improve. I remember football under Hughton and I’m personally in the camp of I’d rather we give it a go and lose than play negative dross. History suggest that playing positive goalscoring football is more likely to get the points we need to survive anyway.

    Wot no fred?

    Would probably mean dropping McLean or Vrancic out of the match squad as Tettey is there to bring on to shore things up. Harsh on either but I agree Roberts offers more of a different option than two similar players.

    The best 1-4 loss we'll ever play

    I can’t be the only one that feels people are getting perhaps a bit carried away? The second half performance was excellent, but during that first half at one point it looked like Liverpool might put way more than 4 past us. There are loads of positives to take away from that game I agree, but at the end of the day it was still a 4-1 loss. We were absolutely shown up in the first 45mins, some really sloppy defending and naive decision making. I’m glad our supporters weren’t on the players backs about it, but I’m not sure if we’d gone out and played another 45 like the first people would be this complimentary about the performance and result.

    Well we put up a better show than West Ham

    Can we stop with the victim complex? It’s been one game. There were many good things that came out of last night and there was plenty of praise for us, especially in the second half. That doesn’t change the fact there were some naive choices from players in the first half that repeatedly put us under unnecessary pressure.

    Result v Liverpool

    I think we may play well for a good period of the game but I can see us crumbling to some ruthless attacking play as the game goes on, especially if we fall behind and go looking for the equaliser. Similar to what happened against Atalanta. I’ll be pleasantly surprised if we get anything from the game, more interested to see how we play against the big boys.

    Ralf Fahrmann Medical

    He’s clearly being brought in to be number one if the figures are even close to correct. Now it might turn out Farke chooses Krul over him based on what he sees over Pre-season, and I imagine the PR talk will be about competition. In reality though it’s hard to imagine the shirt is anything but Fahrmanns to lose if he signs.
  13. Genuinely think we may be looking back thinking getting this agreed was one of the best signings of the summer.

    Teams we can beat next season -

    Apparently, can’t see any other reason for this profound statement.
  15. Out of interest LDC do you know when the last time a promoted team finished 4th or higher in the PL was? Blackburn 93-94 and they had to break the British transfer record to do it. I think that’s why people are saying it’s ridiculous. I’m all for positivity, but the actual likelihood is so remote it’s practically a fantasy. Not too mention the strength of the PL now in comparison is miles tougher.
