  1. Am I to understand it there is a protest this Saturday outside the ground before the Blackburn game? I''ve seen it mentioned on Twitter but nowhere else. I''m in.
  2. Definitely saw that one coming...wondered why it took so long. As soon as Alex Neil took over the dugout at Bournemouth, I knew Mike Phelan wouldn''t have been happy. I wish him all the best.
  3. Pinkun are slow getting it up on the website; BBC and Sky announced it half an hour ago!
  4. Your damn right it''s getting boring!! Yeah, play one up front away from home against a Premiership side, but not at home to a league two team. Embarrassing.
  5. I don''t believe it, just seen the team sheet and Hughton is playing one up front again at home to Bury Town!!! I''ve had enough of these defensive tactics now. Any other Premiership manager would have changed tactics by now. Hughton is stuck in this rigid formation mind-set that even the opposition can guess what we''re going to do. Bring back Worthy...all is forgiven.
  6. 1 up front again...no wonder we can''t score. Wigan didn''t play with 1 up front....we need to attack these teams!!! Poor tactics again.
  7. Do we actually need another striker? We''ve already got Holt, Kamara, Jackson, Becchio and Hoolahan - plus Martin out on loan. Besides, the system we play we could have Van Persie in the team and we''d still play one up front and struggle for goals.
  8. I''m sorry, but I can''t see how David Moyes can say that. I know we all can be biased about our teams and you expect a bit of that, but you would think managers to at least tell an honest reflection of how the game went. For David Moyes to say they should have won 0-2 or 0-3....I just can''t see that, surely not even a neutral would say that. They scored a perfectly good goal, we scored two goals. If you don''t take your chances, you don''t win, it''s as simple as that. To imagine and dream about what you think the score should have been is just a pointless exercise and smacks of sour grapes. Thoughts?
  9. Agree with TheRock - Danny Welbeck is the most over-rated player in the Premier League. To score 9 goals playing the majority of last season up front for Man Utd is a poor total. He missed so many chances for them. 1 goal this season, he''s beginning to be found out. No idea why he got the nod over Holt for England last season. Reading are too good for him also, he''d be better off dropping down to the Championship or League 1, learn some finishing rather than big wages.
  10. [quote user="Lord Horn"][quote user="Shack Attack"]If you are writing/reading out a list of scores or putting the result at the head of a report then you would always read the home team first. So in your example Manchester United 1 Norwich City 4 would be correct. But if you are referring to a score within the main body of a report/article I think it is perfectly fine to say ''Norwich beat Manchester United 4-1''. [/quote] Totally agree but I totally refuse to follow this concept when filling Norwich scores in on my fixture list - don''t care whether we are home or away an ''F'' on our fixture list should always relate to goals scored by us and an ''A'' to goals against us. I hate it when the PInk Un or other sites record our scores like for example Norwich winning away 4-3 at Swansea: Saturday December 8th Swansea Away 3-4 Does this annoy other people or just me???? I''m sure that''s only started happening in recent years??? [/quote] I see where you are coming from Lord Horn with the F and the A, but if for example a headline said Norwich win 4-1 against Man Utd, I would automatically think it was at Carrow Rd, because of the order the score is written. It would be a bit odd in the writeup to then say Norwich win 1-4 at Old Trafford, as the score has been swapped round. It just so happens that as Norwich fans, we know the fixture already; but if you were looking back and past results, the score surely has to be written in the correct order of home first, then away if the ground isn''t mentioned? It seems from the responses though that this is all down to preference. Some funny responses, thank you! :-)
  11. This is a slight change from the usual and I wonder what people thoughts are? Can I ask what you think is the correct way of writing down a football score? For example, if Norwich travel to Manchester Utd and lose 4-1, the media would report that Norwich lose 4-1...correct? If Norwich won the game by the same score, would you say Norwich won 1-4...or would you say Norwich win away 4-1? I have always thought the score should be in order of whether you are home or away...is that right? I''m only asking as I report for another football club and someone has mentioned that they thought I was wrong. They say that it should be written "Norwich win 4-1 - even if it''s at Old Trafford. I would say the opposite and write it as Norwich win 1-4. Would love your thoughts. Thanks!
  12. Sorry, mistake - before you all jump on me.Got my dates muddled, I meant Peterborough.
  13. Wow, that is a bit of a surprise.CH has stated that Declan Rudd will start on Saturday against Peterborough, no reflection on Mark Bunn,  it''s something he decided a while ago.Thoughts?
