    Norwich v Leicester match thread

    Bowing to crowd pressure. Beginning of the end for the gaffer I’m afraid.
  2. Are you calling him thick? Out of order.

    TWTD Having Yet Another Meltdown.

    Indeed. I’d overlooked that. So in the interest of fairness they’d only need to get to 90 points. Which they still can’t, so erm, . You are awarded one pedant point.

    TWTD Having Yet Another Meltdown.

    With FIFTEEN matches remaining our L1 winning points tally of 95 is already out of their reach.

    Klopp being a tw*t

    They were lucky to beat a very poor Everton side, who really should have won quite comfortably. The Liverpool youngsters are talented lads but they don't create a lot and it was a big ask for them to do it again having got away with it a bit vs Everton. That said, I suppose they earned their crack. Irrespective of that, replays haven't suddenly "become a thing" and Klopp knew the possibilities. If he wanted to avoid one, play a stronger team. Daft to have replays during the break? If you're Liverpool, maybe. It's the FA Cup. The break is for the Premier League. If you don't like the format of the FA Cup, don't enter it. If they were 16 points BEHIND Man City, I guarantee they'd have a different attitude too. So **** em.

    If he'd paid Shrewsbury a bit more respect and played a stronger team he'd have had his winter break.

    Best bottom of the league team ever

    We never got relegated under Hughton.

    What is the "five year plan"?

    No. It’s all rubbish. Invented by the sycophant deliaites. Truth is we’re sleepwalking to relegation, beating Bournemouth just papered over the cracks, fire sale in the summer, nothing coming through from the academy, no investment from the board, club not for sale while all around us obtain significant cash injections leaving us behind, Farke back to Germany, Webber gone the season after, academy downgraded, relegation to league one, administration, points deduction, wound up, playing Wroxham. Appears to be the five year plan. On here, anyway.

    Tainted Title

    I'd have been perfectly happy to never see Liverpool win the title ever again but they've been exceptionally consistent this season and it will be well deserved. That the "rest" have simplified their task by being collectively gash at various points isn't the scousers fault and nor was it Leicester's when they took advantage.

    Leaving early

    If you want to leave early, that’s your prerogative. However, if you want to leave early and then stop in front of somebody that doesn’t and obstruct their view because we’re on the attack, then you’re a selfish twit.

    Time to move on.

    So clear that the ref didn’t give it.

    Your predictions - City v AFCB

    Norwich 5 Bournemouth 7 All Bournemouth goals will be penalties awarded by VAR
  16. Problem is that could be us with all the munny diss a paring into that hambag
  17. Leicester or Wolves or Sheffield United. I used to want to be Bournemouth or Stoke or Huddersfield. To be honest, I might still want to be Bournemouth. There’s a long way to go.
  18. Contingency planning for relegation? No ambition. Smacks of that “Top 26” nonsense. We should be planning for next season in the Premier League and failure to do so will see us relegated next year if we’re not relegated this year. I’ll say it again, no ambition.

    Why we will be relegated

    To touch on the zonal marking thing, I honestly think that our lack of physical size would mean we’d be even more vulnerable if we adopted a man to man approach. The zonal approach means that you’re vulnerable to good delivery and movement; it’s likely that attackers will get the run on relatively statically positioned defenders. If the delivery isn’t good then you can win the ball with players positioned in key areas that would be unlikely to win a contested header. As for reasons.. We haven’t taken advantage clinically enough when on top and we ship two goals a game. Man City could probably concede two a game and still win more than they lose. We can’t. We’ve been desperately unlucky with defensive injuries and VAR at times but there have been too many games where we have also somehow contrived to concede twice when comfortable in games. Outlook? Bleak with a chance of sunshine breaking through the clouds.

    The Great Escape mini-league

    I hear you. Hopeless against Watford, rolled over by Villa... Yet we HAVE played well in plenty of games without seeing them out subsequently. Whether that is down to naivety, lack of concentration, inept performances or maybe just not capitalising and taking our chances when on top is open to debate. Perhaps it’s all of them? Signing a “10” with a goal scoring pedigree might turn a few of those draws into wins and defeats into draws or better. It’s a straw. I really don’t think we’re far away from those above us and if we can maybe secure another one or two, Duda works out and Emi finds some goals to compliment the rest of his outstanding play...you never know. As asks go, it’s enormous. Yet other teams seem to have considered themselves “safe” prior to Watford and Soton going on runs. We’ll need an almighty run and it looks hugely unlikely on the face of it but I’m not willing to throw the towel in just yet.
