    Lord Mayor's Celebrations

    I was driving through my uni town today and stopped for petrol. In the station they had 5 rows of different flavoured mad dogs in the bottom row of a fridge. I was very happy that my first thought on seeing them was Kenny, and not how awful they make you feel the morning after some budget drinking.

    lack of quality signings

    That 20m is likely now closer to 10 than the original 20 (maybe 15) - sign on/agent fees for Drmic would of been high, all the youth players we've brought in adds up(although idk how many were free) and a few million spent on Ralle, plus his wages are likely to be more than the club originally planned on giving one single player, so the extra would likely come from the transfer kitty. But still, cant have any complaints about the window so far, and we're only one week in to July!

    It's how they see us?

    Though you said it Mockingly, selling big is actually the answer if we go down, provided the youth perform as expected. If we go down, we will have a vast amount of our premier league windfall left over, parachute payments, and big sales of young talent. In other words, we will be absolutely f***ing loaded. And we will have managable wages for the players we keep. . If we go down this season, I'll view it as a savings year, living frugal and smart, to have a lot more money available to us later than anyone else in the championship and quite a bit more than some prem teams (with no debt on top)

    Rename to "life can be Krul" - quite fitting

    Pukki

    Players often learn of interest without club consent, and I'm sure they find out rough figures, too.

    If there's one thing he refuses to be sentimental over, it's goalkeepers. Those talk Norwich fellas still probably havent forgiven him for Remi Matthews

    The Surprise Relegation Team

    Southampton seemed to pull it together just in time last season, largely with help from Redders finding his form/being used in a way that suits him best. If I were to pick three to go down, not including promoted teams, Id probably go Newcastle, brighton, palace if they lose zaha and cant cope, if not bournemouth. And showing my full Norwich bias, the three I think will actually drop are Shef, Villa, and newcastle

    Ralf Fahrmann Medical

    one last note on him before it becomes official and our own press get more details/are allowed to delve deeper in this. Apparently we are taking on all of his wages. Tweet originates from a German reporter for a fairly big sports/news site. I've seen his wages range from £30k/week-£60k/week. And although the report seems as trustworthy as can get at this stage - I simply just cant believe the board would spend anything like £45-60k/week on one players wages this season, albeit a one season loan.

    Mr. Bailey seems to be saying (rightly so, to be fair) that the starting spot will be Kruls to lose. So there is the possibility* where we don't actually see Fahrmann in the league this season. *note I'm saying possibility, before I get attacked for suggesting Krul will maybe do pretty well this season.

    A couple of transfer rumours...

    I'd imagine 0 guarantees have been given to any players this season. It's a way to kill competition.

    Heads up re: ifollow auto renewal

    Dont worry, i have the added benefit of buying one of 12000 memberships for the likelihood of not even seeing a game live this season

    And he's like an 83 on fifa so he's got to be good, right?

    A couple of transfer rumours...

    Looks like if it's going to happen it will be imminent and also a loan. That's probably about as good as it could get. Links up with the squad before Germany, gets a full pre season schedule, and if he has indeed started his decline we're not up sh**s creek without a paddle, financially speaking. Excited for this one.

    Time for a pep talk

    This is the blessing of not being one of the biggest clubs in the land. The expectation(when being realistic) isn't huge! I, like many I'd expect, am quietly optimistic that our team (especially the young lads) will suprise many outside of the club and we will do quite well. Relish in the fact that if it goes either way, you were ITK . We do well: it was always going to happen. We have gems in this club. It goes bad: what did you expect? We spent £10m and played half a team under the age of 23. This season is not the be-all end-all. This, like last season. Will be part of a (very) long-term financial and footballing plan. Which we possibly wont see the full benifits from for years. Enjoy it. And enjoy those outside the club loving our downfalls and hating our good spells, because in the end it really doesn't matter much what they think

    I say we go a little bit more newschool and go with Weeknds starboy "He's motherf***ing Fahrmann"

    Heads up re: ifollow auto renewal

    Especially being an Ex-pat in the us. One of the major tv channels out here (NBC) has the rights to every single premier league game every weekend. All of them are shown either across their channels or online at no additional cost. And they are part of most standard tv packages in my area so come at no additional cost. Even last season I somewhat regretted having it. ESPN+ cost $5/month and showed between 1-3 Norwich games a month, especially when it became clear we weren't going to "fall off" as everyone predicted.

    Heads up re: ifollow auto renewal

    Appreciate that! Same has happened to me. Just tried contacting the club w no success - maybe due to time difference. Will shoot an email and try again tomorrow before I go to work. They're typically decent about this kind of thing, even though when it comes down to it, it is our fault. Can't see them not reimbursing it, even if it will take a while to process

    Cantwell signs new contract!

    I think if we don't get a new #10 in by the end of month, Cantwell will be the one challenging for that spot w stiepy. Both cantwell and buendia seem to always slowly drift to the middle when they're out wide, but Buendia readjusts himself better. Cantwell seems a natural middle player - and will probably show his true potential when played there.

    New Kit???

    https://www.sbnation.com/soccer/2017/9/12/16296102/nike-soccer-third-kit-barcelona-inter-milan-chelsea-tottenham here's one example of Nike, with reference to addidas doing it, too. One that didn't get as much attention as I thought was Liecesters pink one that everyone gushed over for this upcoming season. Someone had found the "stock" shirt from 2017, priced at around £10. Making the cost of a crest and premier league badge quite expensive

    New Kit???

    Said before and I'll say it again. Popular Global brands like Adidas, Nike etc put 0 effort in to most kits. Many of them are just stock training kits, recoloured with a couple of badges and a sponsor thrown on. I'm much happier having our ones which are more or less unique to us, than sharing a kit with a sunday pub league, german, and french team

    FWIW whenever I see something like this I'm reminded of a fantastic scene from a Gem called 'Parks and Rec' https://youtu.be/Ish8NBunrQU

    To copy you a little here "by this logic": we wouldn't need many, many regulatory laws. The simple fact is this world is no longer survival of the fittest, and good thing for many. Laws like this are set up to protect the most vulnerable of us in society. By what you've said here. Like you, lets take it to the extreme on the other side - - why am I forced go adhere to speed limits? I'm a responsible driver. I, myself, was hit by a speeding car when I was 7 and it snapped my femur in half (truth). I know both the potential consequences of driving too fast, and the caution needed when you see pedestrians both in the road and on the path. So what's the point of limiting my speed to snailspace when going through residential and commercial areas? The answer is pretty simple. We as people can't be trusted. We're too self involved and obsessed to be trusted to do whats right, even with laws and regulations. People would abuse/take advantage of it, and drive recklessly for trivial things (when compared to the welfare of others) such as being late for working or needing a pi**. In this situation, companies are the drivers, and consumers are everyone and anyone that you can injure in this faux, speedlimit free world. It's all well and good to say these people need to want to seek help, and there is certainly truth to that. But that's not the deciding factor here. The human brain when it comes to dopamine isn't that simple.
