    Sterling

    Vardy takes it first time and smashes it past the keeper. If the keeper saves it it''s a great save. Sterling just hesitates/thinks and makes it that bit easier for the keeper, which means they can then get bodies between the ball & goal

    Sterling

    Problem is Rashford hardly staked a claim v Belgium.

    Sterling looks shot of confidence in front of goal so is overthinking everything. Take his chance yesterday. Perfect ball and touch, then it all went wrong. He hesitates, so keeper comes out, so he tries to go round the keeper, but keeper is too close and does well. Then instead of playing a simple 3 yard pass sideways he hesitates again, tries to take a player gone and get a shot away and it becomes easy to defend against.

    I have no issue with his play outside the box (although sometimes there are easy balls on he ignores) but against better teams we may not be able to afford to miss those types of chances without getting punished

    Olive Branch

    I see it like this.

    We probably want to move Oliveira on.

    Oliveira probably wants to move on.

    We cant afford to sell Oliveira until we get a replacement in.

    We cant afford to sign a replacement until we sell Oliveria.

    There isn''t much serious interest in Oliveria.

    Some we are in some weird kind of limbo at the minute

    New shirt?

    Looking closely at the teaser, it looks like it may be based on the ''Hero'' template.

    Collar seems to match, and there seems to be 2 ''pinches'' on the sleeves that may be the seams on the template sleeves

    New shirt?

    another teaser right here. I''m still going with the Iceland kit but yellow and green...

    see here...

    New shirt?

    Pretty sure the home shirt will be along the lines of the Iceland kits (if someone can post a pic?) with green on the sleeves. The pattern on the Iceland shirts seems to fit with a few hints that seem to be given as well

    The man in the hat is back

    ''We would like a striker who has played in the English leagues before and is currently on a hot streak. Such a player will be expensive and therefore we won''t be buying them.

    I am not sure what we''re going to do''

    That player is Jack Marriott. 27 goals in League One, only 23 years old. £6mil is the fee being quoted. I think we may struggle to get anybody else that so obviously fits the mould of what we want for that price. It may be ''expensive'', but its the sort of price we are going to have to go to unfortunately. We should have that amount to spend as well imo, plus signing him may help us move Oliveira on.

    Adam Idah

    This is goig to be a huge story. Has anybody seen a keeper booked for encroaching before. But he didnt even encroach, his foot was on the line as yhe pen was taken.

    This is up there with the ref that gave the wrong penalty decision against one of the Englands ladies teams and the game had to be replayed from the penaltu in stoppage time.
  9. Rogue Baboon

    Are we in the money...

    It wouldn''t surprise me if we looked into League One, maybe Marriott - even then Peterboro valued him higher than £5mil
  10. Rogue Baboon

    Are we in the money...

    You could get a great marquee for a million quid...

    In all seriousness, the reason I put marquee in quotation marks is I don''t think for a second we will be spending 8/10mil on a player, but I think we will have to spend more on a striker than £1/2mil - probably up to the £5mil mark, paid for by moving on Oliveira and part of the Maddison fee
  11. Rogue Baboon

    Are we in the money...

    Yes we are ''in the money'', but the problem is 1mil doesn''t really get you much these days in the Championship.

    I guess it will cover the wages of a ''marquee signing'' for a year, but that''s as far as it goes
  12. I think Pinto will go this summer, so will be 2 right backs needed.

    However, Southampton''s win, coupled with the run ins for a few teams means they have a chance of staying up, which makes a deal for Reed much more likely.
  13. Rogue Baboon

    How others see us

    Its not that often you find stadiums close to a train station & city centre these days, with plenty of places to eat & drink within a stones thrown of the ground

    OT Liverpool Playing a Blinder !

    Also in other news, Wildschut confirms he will return to Norwich.

    Well I presume so anyway, he has had an absolute shocker tonight. Can’t see why anyone would buy him after that!
  15. Rogue Baboon

    Is this messageboard about to disappear?

    But will we know it’s happening? Or will it just disappear one day all of a sudden?
  16. Interesting, but great move from the club!

    Hopefully more clubs, and the league itself, come out in support as well over the next few days, and hopefully it can be debated properly instead of being shoved to one side by the sports minister

    Is Reed Better Than Pinto?

    Reed was my MotM yesterday - thought he was brilliant

    What we need is Hernandez to be fit so we have a genuine outlet on the right wing, which means Reed can then be a conventional RB - defend first, support attack when needed.

    There was one moment that summed Pinto up yesterday. He did brilliantly and left Hoilett looking sheepish on the touchline. Then the final ball let him down, bounced to Hoilett who had 90 yards of space in front of him in which to run and put Cardiff on the attack
  18. Rogue Baboon

    If you had to choose Colin or Farke

    @Herman

    But we aren''t in the Pl league, and don''t look like we will be any time soon, so its not really relevant.

    For getting out of this league it would have to be Colin. He knows the league like the back of his hand , knows what it takes to win games and is effective.

    It wont be pretty, and we wouldn''t like the football, but he would build a team to get us out of this league. Unfortunately I think Farke is a million miles from that.

    Ref on Saturday..

    Look at me! Look at me! LOOK AT ME!

    Taking incompetence to a new level. Although the linesman doing his best to outshine him - tried giving Cardiff a throw when it was clearly a Norwich throw. Then laughed as he claimed he didn’t see it. It was about 3 yards in front of him...
  20. Don''t think it would be a particularly great move for him - another season in the Championship would be much better for his development
  21. Rogue Baboon

    Versus Sunderland.

    Agree NN, if I remember he was outstanding v Leeds but was injured immediately after.

    It’s a long road, and I hope he makes it, although I think it may be on loan for him next season

    McCarthy gone

    From Stuart Watson’s (Ipswich’s Paddy Davitt...) Twitter...

    ‘BREAKING: Mick McCarthy has quit #itfc

    - Speaks for 3mins about game then says on reaction to Cotter sub:

    ''That was disgraceful reaction but listen I won''t have to listen to it again because that''s my last game, I''m out of here''.

    Bangs desk with hands and marches out press room’

    I need to see that video!
  23. Rogue Baboon

    Versus Sunderland.

    By the time next season starts, Thompson would have been out for almost 2 years. It’s a big mountain to climb to get to the level we would need - surely you would play within yourself for fear of the injury reoccurring
  24. Rogue Baboon

    McCarthy gone

    Announced at West Brom this week?

    To be fair didn’t really see the point in his staying
  25. Rogue Baboon

    Marcus Edwards

    Seemed a strange signing at the time, in a position where we have a fair few options. Unless we were preparing for a late Maddison bid and wanted to make sure we had options?
