  1. OK tin hat time! I have heard that the deal for Naismith has fallen through due to him refusing having a relegation clause in his contract.
  2. [quote user="KoromaCrab"]MBOKANI![/quote] Obviously! And the defensive problem?
  3. Platitudes from an opposing team who have beaten us to me have a very hollow feeling. Yes for large parts of the game we played well and were an equal match for Palace. Where we were short, as has been mentioned many times today, is both in attack (the Grabban miss, is he Jamie Cureton in disguise) and defence. The lack of quality in defence has by and large been identified as a major weakness many times over the last three seasons and as yet, has not been rectified. We signed Wisdom on loan but he didn''t start today. Is he no better than the defenders we had here already? If not, why the hell was he on the bench? Prudence with a lack of ambition seems to be overtaking the board again. If we are to remain in the upper echelons of the football pyramid we really need to invest significantly in both our defence and to a lesser extent attack. Just as a aside, why the hell didn''t we start with Redmond on the pitch? I seriously worry about our CEO and his reluctance to invest in GOOD players! If we had perhaps been more ambitious in January 2014 we could have avoided relegation, but to me he seemed more worried about claiming a financial bonus for himself rather than speculating to hopefully accumulate the rewards of remaining in the Prem. Now we find ourselves more than second best to a Club whom we should be on a level playing field with! Tin hat on! OTBC
  4. OP got it spot on! No investment will cost us dearly!
  5. Well to me it pretty obvious. Palace have invested heavily in their team for this season, the most important one to stay up in ever, with the promise of increased rewards for next year. We, on the other hand have decided prudence before ambition yet again. Plus the fact that should the CEO go over his budget he would lose his bonus, which, IMO is more important to him than the club! It''s going to be a very long season and this is just the start! Hate the Prem and all that it stands for, 37 games to go! The majority of posters on here have for the last three seasons identified a glaring weakness in the quality of our defence yet the board/manager have done little to address this issue. We sign Norman from Liverpool but don''t play him today. If he is not better than the starting defence why the feck did we sign him. Looking forward to next week.....not!
  6. Barclay seats 48/49 the 3rd It''s really beginning to bother me every time I see Danny Alves ,,, his head is shaved like a birds snatch Is he Brazilian?
  7. Same as the FA Cup final here! 25k to Villa and Arsenal rest to corporate! Soooooo wrong!!!!
  8. [quote user="Canary Dogg"]Would love to see the canaries In this tournament one day[/quote] AN against Pep Guardiola? Only one winner!!!!!! OTBC!
  9. Barca, just like watching City at Wemberley!!!!!!!!
  10. Bliddy hell, what''s all this BS before KO!! Should just be the Captains going to the Ref, shake hands, pass a flag from one to another then proceed to kick lumps out of each other!!! Game on!!!!
  11. [quote user="The Voice Of Reason"][quote user="Canary Island"]Those who like a Good conspiracy theory he announces his engagement the day after Adams gets the boot. Did he feel so over joyed by the news he popped the question?[/quote] The theory that Adams was stabbed in the back?[/quote] That''s a bugger when that happens!
  12. OK, have read all the sensible and not so sensible posts tonight and have a question. McNally, stay or go? Yes or no, simple answer. Guess this post will last until late morning but will be interesting till then!
  13. Ketts it all to do with the Hillsborough disaster as 3.07 was when it started. Not going to post my feelings though!
  14. Good question, was discussing this with my son yesterday after the game. Personally I think I need to see where we finish before I finally make up my mind! On the fence again!
  15. Professes to be "king" of the Barclay but rarely attends, say''s it all about him really!!!!
  16. Prat even, and also to be a king of the Barclay, shouldn''t one attend and lead his desciples!!!!
  17. Yep 5 wins on the trot! Good luck to the fella!
  18. It''s also good when you get the Norwich WiFi password!
  19. LDC I agree we did have some chances in the second half but we were looking to time waste from the 65th minute and rarely had more than 4 in their box for set pieces from then on. Just felt had we continued in the same manner as the first half we could have scored a couple more so as to help our goal diff and sentba bit of a message out. OTBC
