    Todd Cantwell

    The nasty element of our fan base has continued to rear it's ugly head on this thread. How exactly do you base your opinion anyway ? Hoolahan has played for us for 10 seasons so after Cantwell's 2 part seasons for us you have compared them and come to the conclusion that Cantwell is way better than Hoolahan. Have you based your comparison through results, goals and assists ? Can't compare purely on games played. Both players have guile - if anything Hoolahan has closer control and can work in tighter compact spaces, both goal scoring range is roughly 6 yards, both appear easy to shrug off defensively, both have a footballing brain - so what skills do Cantwell process that Hoolahan doesn't ? Is it Cantwell is taller and can run faster ? Is he 2 footed ? Hoolahan can ghost past defenders pretty easily - has he not done this in enough of his 365 odd games and Todd has done this in the couple he has played ? Have you done this comparison using Hoolahan's worse game for us next to Cantwell's best ? DF's team gameplan is a consolidated defence so Todd will stick to it longer than Hoolahan in his time in the team. I have covered all assessment points and can't see any extreme differences. So how do you form your opinion ? Do you like the way he runs ?

    Why have you reignited this ? The thread is about Todd Cantwell not Hoolahan. This is a Norwich City Forum - you can make comments rubbishing Pele or Maradona if you want, but don't rubbish our best players. Yes you are allowed your opinion but is there any reason to go off topic and "attack" Hoolahan ? Yes it's an attack because of the snark way you present it. There are fickle fans on here that if Cantwell were to have a couple of bad performances will turn on him pretty quickly - with your track record you're a major candidate. Not sure if you recall DF saying "I'd love to have the opportunity to work with Wes when he was at his peak". DF is pretty honest and I believe him when he said that. If he could transform budget players what could have done with someone like Hoolahan ? It doesn't take a "big man" to stand up for their club and it's players (past & present). Why not just enjoy the moment without putting others down ?

    Added to front: Rather proclaim it, Pukki, through my host, That he which hath no stomach to this fight, Let him depart. His transfer shall be made, And conditions for his loan put into his contract. We would not play in that man’s company That fears his fellowship to play with us. This day is call’d the start for St Daniel.

    I think Cantwell and the entire team made us fans pretty proud to be associated with the club on Saturday. We should all be enjoying the moment. So why the snark remark on previous players ? That's got nothing to do Cantwell or with our performance on Saturday - have you got sociological problems or something ? An attention seeker ?

    He's a nasty piece - he also spat at Pukki as he was going down near the end of the game

    Sorry - not talking about you Wundaboy

    Ratings v Man City

    I reiterate - look at the performances of all the players over the entire football match looking at every facets of the game. Yes defenders, keepers & defensive midfielders can be MOM but not Saturdays game - it was not an ugly 1-0 win. We scored 3 goals and one player initiated all three. The press are commending us for our overall game - not just defensively. The defence played as a pack, some who won individual battles, Man City would have seen a great long yellow wall with our players all doing their part. The question is without Buendia could we still have won ? He was at the heart of all our attacking play as well as our defensive play. This is not school boy social football team where the coach encourages the weakest player in the team by giving he/she MOM for a good effort. If a pundit gives it to someone like Byram then that pundit should be hosting "Mother Hen".

    Ratings v Man City

    Any pundit who gives Byram or Amadou MOM is naive - they should be looking at the entire football match to base an opinion. We didn't draw the game 0-0 we won it. My ratings (from lowest to highest): 8- Krul: kept his eye on the ball, made the right decisions which gave me entire confidence of him. Could have stopped the 2nd Man City goal some say - why not give some credit to the shot of the 60mil player. 8- Tettey, Godfrey, Lewis, Amadou, Byram. All got their share of headers, blocks and crucial tackles in. Amadou playing out of position did carry the ball out of defence a couple of times surprising and beating players but spoiling things by giving the ball away with bad passes, still retains 8. Byram playing his first game won many individual duels with Sterling. But our right-hand side of the defence - his side was where Man City had most joy. Without being too critical - Bryam failed to stop a few crosses and let Sterling beat him to a cross which hit the post. So good deeds very much highlighted but bad ones not so as they did not lead to goals. Lucky to retain 8. 8. Steipermann - Attacked and defended well. No loose passes. Real good vision to put Pukki away for the shot that Pukki missed. 8.5 - McLean - given the extra .5 due to scoring. Tackled well without errors. 8.5 - Cantwell - being part of the attacking quartet gave Man City problems with his trickery and movement. Stuck to his defensive duties well always harassing his man. 9 - Pukki - Scored one goal and setup another. His usual "complete" performance but not MOM this time due to missing one shot, almost blocking Rodri's shot for the 2nd Man City goal but not quite achieving that and, also the MOM was exceptional. 9.5 + - Buendia (MOM) - this player's performance won us the match. Setup the 1st and 3rd goals, initiated the 2nd by bamboozling the Man City midfield. Was the focal point in most of our attacks. Full of energy - challenged, pressed and tackled for the entire time he was on the pitch. Was missed defensively when Drmic replaced him for those last minutes which resulted in our right-hand side looking like "open country" for Man City.

    Wow - you sound like you're just discovered Norwich City ! Cantwell is a winger. Hoolahan didn't have the luxury of players in "this team" as you put it. You probably wasn't a fan we beat the likes of Man United and Man City back in 2010. We had Hughton as coach - we had to grind out results. It wasn't pretty stuff to watch but we achieved results. We do have a pretty good team now and I've always back Todd Cantwell - and not just because he's a local lad or not just starting this season ! Lot of disrespect for a canary legend on this post - times have moved on dramatically also for the breed of supporters we have !

    Hoolahan plays a different game to Cantwell. They don't even play in the same position.

    Actually really enjoyed his goal celebration - will never be tired of watching it !

    Feeling even more positive now

    If we grab the headlines on Sunday morning It'll either be because of a record score or if a injury-hit canary team steals points from the champions.

    Ryan Bennett

    My view on Bennett hasn't changed now that he's playing for Wolves. He is now surrounded by ten decent players who are very competitive team. Would anyone notice if he made errors ? Certainly Wolves have so much of the ball he's hardly under any pressure. The errors he made while playing for us were horrendous and the way he just jogged back after loosing the ball will never leave me. Good riddance to bad rubbish !

    What's wrong with Super Mario

    Come to think of it - we have a player in our ranks who has the build of a bull and the twinkle toes of a ballerina - McLean !
