  1. Individually and collectively most of the current squad are not good enough for the premier league.We get the occasional win when we play at our best and the opposition have an off day.This squad have to be one of the weakest I have seen in my 60+years of going to Carrow Road I’m afraid football has moved on City have not but I will be there again next season whatever the division.
  2. Does not surprise me at all both players were quite good with the ball but pretty naive without it and still got lots to learn.Watched Lewis last night on TV one of the Chelsea goals he was way up the pitch because his attacking intentions far outweigh his defensive duties.Obviously you are punished more in the Premier league but when we were promoted last time we usually out scored the opposition last season we struggled to score at all.Our defence is a tighter unit now.
  3. Godfrey was playing at the start of the season and I’m not saying that they are not good players but they still have a lot to learn when it comes to defending.
  4. Hanley as far as the defending side is concerned and he is quicker than the other two.Thought both he and Zimmerman played well yesterday.Bit controversial here but we seem to be defending better since two of our defenders left for pasture new.
  5. Would not say no to Benno when people say he is not a Farke type defender what do they mean ,he knows how to defend first and foremost our present defenders are not too clever in the art of defending.He also has played a fair few games for Wolves who like to pass the ball a bit.
  6. Football is a spectator sport if it’s not possible to finish this season as it was started it should not resume at all.It seems some will go to any lengths to finish the season I am a season ticket holder and love my team and football but the greed is really starting to p#ss me off.Managers,club doctors and players really have to stand up to the idiots who seem to think they are more important than life itself.Rant over.
  7. When it’s safe for every team whatever age or standard to start playing football again that is when the premier league should start also.It can only be greed that makes anyone else think differently.
  8. Liverpool defence all over the place funny how not having your first choice centre back pairing can be a game changer.Welcome to what our season has been like Liverpool.
  9. Would have thought Farke has seen enough in training to know if Amadou would improve the midfield or not.If others have stepped up and impressed that’s why they play and he doesn’t .
  10. I confess I had not heard of him until today so I will wait until he actually plays a game or two for us before before judging him.
  11. Been picked regularly by every Coach/manager we have had in his time at Carrow road simply because he is a very good defensive midfielder.Might even get another season out of him with a bit of luck.
  12. Better defender than Godfrey deserves to be in the team.Obviously not as gifted but we look a lot better at the back with him.
  13. Spot on City 2nd young Max is one of my favourite players but his defending is not his strong point.When we play so well and still end up with no points obviously players will be criticised.None of our players are beyond that whether they are our favourites or one of the youngest in the team.
  14. Merry Christmas everyone stay safe and have a good day
  15. Never stays long at any club he has played for suggests the problem is him not the club.On reflection he was not good enough although he obviously liked the financial rewards of being in Norfolk.
  16. There is no way anyone will be paying fifty million for Godfrey would be surprised if we got anything like that for him and Max together they are part of a very poor defence.Potential to improve yes but not for that sort of money.
  17. I can see where this post is coming from I fear for us every time a set piece comes into our penalty area.Zonal marking might be part to blame but it should not hide the fact that a few of our players are easily bullied.A fit Hanley would provide a bit more strength in there.
  18. After watching the game this afternoon I think we need a couple of defenders who can defend.A centre back who can play the ball forwards rather than back to the keeper who then knocks it long anyway and a bit more robust player to compete with Max who has not stepped up like we all thought he would.Good first half but needed the second goal.They came out to play in the second half and within a few minutes we were not at the races.
  19. I worry every time we give away a corner or free kick we are not very good at defending.If Spurs or anyone else offer anything like what is being touted for any of our young defenders I think we should take the money.Also please no more zonal marking.
  20. Lots of good performances but I thought McLean was superb today driving us forward a pity he didn’t put the chance he had away but he really did play well.Thought we could have won it but if you can’t win don’t lose.
  21. Sterling is a class player who if fit should always start.. I’m more concerned about the lack of class central defenders even Mcguire does not look as good as he was before he got his big move.
  22. Strange that the players I thought could step up have not.Tonight was not good seems like confidence is shot but we all knew that the players that took us up would be given a chance and most of us thought that was the right thing to do.Its not working but for those who keep on about not spending in the summer how much would have been enough we went down that route before and still got relegated.Perhaps we should cash in on one or two of our starlets as they are not pulling up any trees ar the moment.
  23. RIP Big Dunc like others have said a true City Legend and brilliant captain.
  24. Tettey makes so much difference. Its no coincidence that every manager/Coach that we have had over the time that Alex has been at the club put him in the starting line up when he is fit.Still a few more miles left in Alex yet.
