  1. I would say this is a 'Just in case situation'. I think he could be a big help.
  2. Why oh why haven't we stopped Raggetts' loan spell at Portsmouth and brought him back. I've been reading about how well he's played in his previous games. I think he would be good for us. At least he could be a short term answer and also give him the experience he needs.
  3. we wear red and white stripes!Stoke, Sunderland and Athletico Madrid did it. We could go in disguise and frighten Chelsea.It would be good if the lads did it for a laugh!
  4. If you look at it this way  the Norwich of the past has been a club that plays with mainly local homegrown and British players. Lambert proved this to be a good assett by only buying and using players who wanted to be at and play for Norwich. The fans and the players thrived on each other and the players played out of their skins for this football club.Now Hughton is in the process of changing all of that by gradually bringing in foreign players to try and compete with the other premier league teams. This may be good in some ways but they have no love for Norwich City. Give Hughton a while and if we remain in the prem our club will be full of foreigners the likes of Arsenal, Man City etc. I think we are seeing a change of mentality within our football club which could be good in some ways but in others could make more of us loyal supporters past caring and stop going. The passion is being drained from our club by players who don''t care about it. Get relegated, they will just move on. It''s just a job and wage at the end of the day for some.
  5. It''s about time we saw some guts from Hughton and start to have a go at some of these teams instead of trying not to lose. If we lose or even get relegated i want to see us go down fighting and be able to say ''We did our best''. All we got today was a defensive City with 2 strikers frustrated all afternoon with no service until the last 20 minutes.Hooper and RVW would have done better if Hughton hadn''t bottled it in midfield! We had no one attacking down the wings to give the strikers any service. Hughton played a very defensive midfield. Garrido is a defender and Snoddy is out of form and needs a rest. When Redmond came on we  started to look threatening but not before. We only came to life in the last 20 mins. Hughton needs to act sooner with his substitutions. If Hughton plays 2 up front then he needs to play attacking midfielders to provide the service. Hooper and RVW cannot do it on their own. Should of started the game with Redmond and Murphy and Garrido and Snoddy on the bench. MAN UP HUGHTON!!!

  7. What has happened to us? We can play good football at times but we show no ruthlessness in front of goal. Good first half performance today however Utd were bad and struggled all match.We should of punished them. It''s about time that City started taking some of these games to their opponents rather than playing pretty and getting nothing due to mistakes and a lack of concentration in defence. I remember City of old would throw the kitchen sink at these teams but these days we just roll over and give in. Good to see Hoolahan play today and play well considering it was only his 4th game of the season but so many others simply didn''t turn up. I can hear Hughton now saying we just weren''t ''CLINICAL'' in front of goal.Sorry about the moan. Just need to get things of my chest. We could have had 3 points today!
  8. Bennett seems to have a better understanding with Turner and he''s also got a bit of pace to sweep around at the back when required. Bassong needs to get his fitness back and fight for his place and win in back on merit.
  9. Well done Norwich! Finally got going in the 2nd half. Impressed with Ryan Bennett he was my man of the match. In the 1st half we were too deep as usual. The defence certainly started to push up higher in the 2nd half and that definately helped and we manged to press West Hams midfield and win more of the ball. OTBC!!
  10. No. I think that apart from Ryan Bennett our two centre backs, Turner and Bassong have no competition and they certainly have very little understanding between one another. This is probably why Hughton packs the midfield and uses Tettey as an additional defender sat in front of these two. By doing this and not having a strong enough defence we are always going to be lacking in attacking options. I feel we need a couple of good sound defenders to shake up the defence and also a leader. Bassong is not a leader on the pitch and i don''t think Russell Martin is a big enough character although he does try. Unless Hughton has confidence and faith in a strong defence he is always going to be a defensive manager and be reluctant to take a game to other teams by pushing and attacking. The best form of defense is attack!
  11. After reading all that''s gone on since Saturday i can''t help feeling that Man City may have done our football club a big favour by giving us a thrashing and bringing this terrible start to the season to a head. I feel we have had this coming and hopefully it''s the kick up the backside and scare that Hughton and all the players needed. If he can get them sorted now and start being a bit more positive on the pitch i think with a result on Saturday it could be the start of our season. Hughton must stop being so negative and focussing on other teams strengths as he is working out defensive stategies leaving little if any attacking options. I''d like to see RVW play behind Hooper and see how they get on. RVW is full of running and to me doesn''t look like an out and out striker. He''s not a Van Persie but could be our Rooney! Hooper will start scoring i''ve no doubt but he must have the service. RVW could be that service with Howson and Fer in support and Snoddy and Pilks down the line. OTBC!
  12. Ricky had his best game in a Norwich shirt today. He ran his socks off! Although i have noticed he has now started to drop and come and look for the ball a lot more than in the earlier games and i was impressed today especially with his assist. It was thoroughly deserved. I''d also like to see Hoops in the team from the start and maybe Ricky playing just behind him. I think that would be a possible good position for him and Hoops could play of him.
  13. I agree. Howson is finally getting his chance and is improving each game. He''s got goals in him as well. He proved that last week. The midfield have done well in the last 2 games and Leroy Fer has slowly started to impress me.I wasn''t sure at first. But i felt sorry for Tettey today with the 2nd goal. He was having a cracking game and then slipped up the once and got punished.
  14. Cracking match this afternoon and well done to the lads for having a go but i must ask why did Hoots play Bassong when he was clearly not fit and played like he was protecting an injury. He should of kept the same team as last week and made Bassong play for his place. Ryan Bennett was outstanding last week. The Bassong and Turner partnership is struggling. They gifted Villa their goal and also gifted the first goal to Chelsea today. Bassong was slow and sluggish all afternoon and did not pass the ball much further than 10 yards. He may be a good defender when fit but today he clearly wasn''t and Turner has to try and cover for him.
