The way we start the second half in almost every game is a huge problem and this is one I think can be laid at Farke's door. It nearly always takes us 10 minutes to get going after half time and we just come out sitting off and passive.. It really f**ks me off and today has completely turned the game on its head after we had worked so hard.

That, and zonal marking need sorting out badly. Every week, no progress

This is not a one off after half time. It happens in nearly all of our games and we did it against Arsenal as well before waking up when they scored. Sometimes we get away with it and others we do not.

I am angry @ the manager this time I'm afraid...he didn't do his job at HT imo...we just don't look up 4 it

How do you know what he did or didn't do?

We just look so deflated when behind. Not just when we go behind but even today after initially taking the lead. Need a spark from somewhere otherwise it just seems like we are waiting for the last 10 mins when they will inevitably start sitting back.

 

We only really have two leaders. Zimmermann and Krul. We're full of boys used to winning every game. We look like we dont have the fight in us

VAR is awful. Probably the right decision in this instance but it absolutely ruins the game

It’s awful. Where the hell has the team of last season gone 

Lost some games, only used to hearing praise. Mentally we dont look like we have it in us. Players like Arrons and Godfrey and Pukki may well have it at the back of their minds that they will soon be off to a bigger club. Not that they are at fault personally, but in terms of where they are mentally, Norwich survivng relegation perhaps isnt that relevant

Laughable second half performance against a team we were better than last season and even in this first half. There’s no chance of this team staying in this league

This defensive back four were lightweight last season and proving so again this season.

Apart from Zimm, Tettey n pukki we havent got fight, quality or physical presence on the pitch

Financially we're set up to yoyo. Im not too concerned if we go down. Its coming up again where the concern lies.

Arrons, possibly Lewis, Godfrey, Pukki and Buendia will all want to move on. We'll probably receive a pretty penny for them, but of course we have to replace them. Pukki was a fluke, unlikley we'd be ablt to attract someone of his calibre to replace him, and without a goalscorer we will struggle. If we can keep Byram we can probably survive losing Max. But a reliable goalscorer is crucial and not dependent on simply having money to replace him

So if you think it’s probably the right decision, why would you want players to be sent off incorrectly?

Start preparing for next season I think because unless we have an amazing transfer window which ain’t gonna happen then we can write this season off

Commentator said earlier, Mousset cost more than our whole team. I know we can't match that spending but it sums up why we are in this position.

There's something wrong when several Championship teams outspend you!

I’m out of ideas. The injuries are not the problem now, we’ve tried all options available to us . You just can’t see where the change can come from. We look utterly clueless going forwards

What would be the point of coming back up.

It would just be the same.

We've had enough chances over the years to become a proper PL Club but we never learn and just l carry on exactly the same when we get promotion.

We have been second rate most of the season - had a good one off win against Man City and apart from the odd good performance then it’s been nothing to write home about - Ipswich here we come

Except we didn't in the first half. So we have a workable plan, but maybe not the mental strength to survive.

Starting to feel that way. It seems a pointless exercise us being here
