  1. I just think CH did not know how to use him. He''s a six yard box poacher, and if used as such will probably get you 15+ goals a season. But he needs a target man to play off and a mid - field that will give him the ball in the right areas, and CH''s team weren''t set up to do that. Good luck to the lad, hope his career recovers.
  2. [quote user="mrs miggins"]I wonder if Adams and Phelan will turn it around, wouldn''t it be marvellous if they did.[/quote] Be a nice Christmas present if they did. 7 - 0 thrashing of Millwall on Boxing Day?
  3. [quote user="Cantiaci Canary"]Arguably he was only so ruthless initially because Gunn wasn''t his man. Hughton and Adams are his appointments ... To fire them both severely questions his ability to lure and recruit the most appropriate men for the job. The only alternative is that he does see sense but is outnumbered by his colleagues on the board who still think a man who has never managed in December, January, February and March is the best person to revive the fortunes of a nose diving and vital campaign.[/quote] +1
  4. In reply to the OP, I absolutely agree. NA was doing a good job as youth team coach, and I would guess was an awful lot happier. Giving him a way to go back to doing what he''s good at would be a display of real leadership.
  5. [quote user="Bury Green"] Oh and how about Adrian Forbes, always the last word in reasoned and non biased debate?[/quote] AF''s only demonstrate that however badly the current manager is doing, there *is* somebody less qualified for the job.
  6. 3 - 1 to the Exiles. But I''d back any of Lambert''s Norwich teams to win against any of Hughton''s or Adams teams. Under Lambert we got a team that was more than the sum of it''s parts. Under Hughton or Adams for the most part the team has been less than the sum of it''s parts. We need to find someone who can get the team playing well and going out expecting to win again. I don''t care if we''re as dull and drilled as George Graham''s Arsenal as long as we get back to winning ways.
  7. [quote user="Feedthewolf"]^It was the fact that the post started with ''Normal 0 false false false'' that made me chuckle.[/quote] +1
  8. I was gutted (and listening to Forbes on the way home just made things worse) but I''d definitely file the result under "cock up" rather than "conspiracy".
  9. [quote user="morty"]If I had ten pence for every time someone started a thread like this over the years, I would have nigh on £11.50 by now. Of course, it''s entirely plausible, but most likely pure, made up conjecture.[/quote] +1
  10. [quote user="jb"]was also thinking this about Hooper''s reaction to scoring the vital late equaliser - hardly any reaction at all, almost looked embarrassed. [/quote] Err...maybe he thought "no time to celebrate, let''s just see if we can nick another and win"?
  11. [quote user="lake district canary"]Surely lessons have been learned? [/quote]Well the fans seem to have learned some lessons from last season (assuming this board is representative of opinion generally).  If there had been this strong a mood against CH at this stage of last season, I think we would have had a new manager in before January.
  12. One of the really frustrating thing about the England situation is the knowledge that it could be turned around if only the will was there.For example, look at what has been achieved with British Cycling over the last decade.For a football example, look at the German response to going out of Euro 2000 at the group stage.So if the performance of the England team mattered to the FA, they would overhaul the structure of the game in England to give us a fighting chance of success.
  13. [quote user="STAN"]Passion & Pride. The players are lined up at the start of every game and forced to sing a song about God saving our glorified tourist attraction. God save our Queen? 90% of English footballers couldn''t give a t*ss about the Queen. Does the Queen care about me? No. Do I care about the Queen? No. I don''t wish nothing bad upon her but she means as much to me as my neighbour 5 doors down the road. In fact the said neighbour probably means more. Secondly.. England''s a shithole. How many players are proud and passionate of/about this country? This is our problem.[/quote]Are you are Oliver Cromwell in disguise?
  14. [quote user="Molly Windley"]An opt out for that Chat bubble would be good too so I can make it disappear off my screen, appreciate the effort getting it there but I cant see it catching on or that I personally would ever use it.[/quote]+1
  15. Hmmm...I think you''d have to spend time in a telephone box with Jenna Coleman to be sure (and in those circumstances you might be somewhat distracted).
  16. [quote user="lake district canary"][quote user="nutty nigel"]Please can he be the next Dave Stringer. A much better prospect. [/quote] Maybe a combination of Dave Stringer and Mike Walker would do the trick...... [/quote]It had to happen sometime - I agree 100% with LDC.For the record, I admit I was far too pessimistic over the Wolves result, and the situation looks much healthier now.
  17. At least the small crowds mean less money for the FA ==> some motivation to fix the problem.Maybe it''s time to move to a system of central contracts for the England team?Or for the English league to copy the German model and have the FA take over the club''s academies.I know the clubs wouldn''t like it, but surely the FA would be able to find some sanction if they won''t cooperate - maybe asking UEFA to exclude English clubs from Europe until the clubs do as they''re told?If that takes money out of the Premiership and makes clubs less attractive as toys for oligarchs, I would see that as a good thing.
  18. Cracking result!Hopefully we can kick on from here, and put together a decent run of games which will convince those (like myself) who have been concerned that we were worrying unnecessarily.
  19. [quote user="Shyster"]Man Utd are currently losing their first league game of the season - do you think they should rid of van Gaal?[/quote]If his record after 6 games is lost 5 / drawn 1 / won 0, I would think there might be some manure fans questioning the wisdom of appointing him.  Of course he does have a long record of success as a manager to fall back on.
  20. A well argued piece.I think that we will likely find occasions, due to injury or who we''re playing where 4-5-1 or 3-5-2 would serve us better, but I agree with the main thrust of the argument that our main strength is in midfield and we should use this area as a platform for attack and a shield for the defence.Who knows, if it led to a few clean sheets we might see a revival of confidence and form in the defence.
  21. [quote user="Bor Bor Bor"](I note that Luke Skywalker needed Obi-Wan Kenobi to destroy the Death Star, as just one illustration of how a senior figure is helpful as a source of counsel.)[/quote]You may have solved our problems at a stroke:Chewbacca as Sweeper.  Yoda as playmaker.  Jabba the Hutt in goal.  Darth Vader as target man.  Leia on cheerleading duty.Emperor Palpatine as Manager.We''d win the Champions League the season after next.
  22. [quote user="Buh"]Well, I''m glad I not te only one that saw the op as a aggressively negative idiot with viewpoints that would make a Liverpool fan in the Congo look well informed.[/quote]Be careful - he might be Kim Jong Un!
