    A club without ambition

    I swear nobody who follows this club actually listens. We were told where we were before last season even finished: we were going to be doing this on a shoestring and if we could manage to survive then great, but if not then we'll go again a lot more financially stable. I'm getting really sick of people having hissy fits about 'no ambition' and so on. Really, if you want vicarious success every single week then just switch to supporting Man City, Liverpool, Chelsea or so on. There's no shame in not bothering with the fact that it's a local club linked to the community and just going for a feelgood glow from the success of something that has **** all to do with you. Better than that than making it a misery for the people who just want to see the club do the best it can within the resources it has.

    I Told You So

    Everyone in the world has a long list of things they don't understand. The word for someone who doesn't realise they have a long list of things they don't understand is 'ignorant'.

    Sky Sports Top Scorers List

    Not to worry. Pukki will take a clear lead soon enough.
  4. I know it sounds ridiculous, but I actually think tonight bodes pretty well: first night back in the Premier League against the European Champions and, after a drubbing in the first half, we keep them out all second half and claw a goal back. I really think we're going to do okay this season.

    Joe Ferrari & Gemma Gifford leave NCFC.

    Yup. Almost makes me wonder whether it's going to be out-sourced.

    Jordan Rhodes?

    Well it seems there was no option agreed and definitely no price agreed so I'm delighted to take back my earlier comments. Would still like Rhodes to come to us mind. Plenty of summer left for them to come to an agreement so you never know.

    Jordan Rhodes?

    Perfectly appropriate word when you attempt to renegotiate (note the difference in meaning in contrast to 'negotiate', which you have used here) a previously agreed figure.

    Jordan Rhodes?

    Not as sorry as I am about your poor communication skills.

    Jordan Rhodes?

    You have to be the most obnoxious so and so on here, you know that?

    Jordan Rhodes?

    I suppose he could, but why would he? To be honest, I think Norwich is in the wrong here. They entered into a loan deal with an agreed price of 7 million quid to buy at the end, and that was agreed when most people would have expected us to be starting next season in the Championship. Now we're saying we'd like him, but not at the price we'd already agreed to? I think it's shameful to be honest.

    Chris Hughton

    New manager, new ideas. Good news for us that Brighton will be transitioning in style while still very vulnerable. That should work in our favour.

    Lets be honest...

    From Pukki's recent comments I think the club knew exactly how Pukki would fit in before they ever spoke to him. That was what convinced him it was the right club for him in the first place.

    When Will we Next Play Ipswich in a League Game?

    That's possible. I lived in Norfolk a large chunk of my life and in Norwich for a few years. Certainly if you experience hostility from someone/a group then you're more likely to feel it back. My general point though was that I get the feeling that a lot of these local rivalries seem to be rooted in a general idea that you're 'supposed' to be rivals if you're nearby. Like, for me, I find Fulham and Aston Villa a lot more irritating than Ipswich, possibly more so towards AV after the weekend, although hopefully not!

    Tim Krul

    Probably one of the biggest testaments to Tim Krul's innate ability is the fact that he rejoined Newcastle when they were in the championship in 2009 and contributed to getting them promoted. They stayed in the Premier League every season that he was first choice, then were relegated in 2016 after he went out of action early in the 2015/2016 season with a cruciate ligament injury. We're very lucky to have him.

    To be honest, I've never got the whole local rivalry thing at all: that you should feel an intense loathing for another club simply on the basis of something as arbitrary as a degree of geographic proximity has always struck me as a bit puerile. But whatever turns you on I guess.
