No we couldn’t. I don’t know if you can recall last year but we got 1 point from them and they physically bossed us around in the home game. 

So they had a better platform than we did to compete against maybe 2/3 of the PL teams. They have done very well and hats off to them their board and Wilder. On the other hand no surprise to Villa struggle because they are not particularly good at anything and especially defending. We all know where our faults lie, it’s mainly a lack of physicality for this level. Last year we overcame that and had an edge in stamina and mental strength, no so this year. 
 
As for investment Sheff Utd did buy well, Villa didn’t and we obviously didn’t but I think the seasons were set fairly early on because of playing styles and our defensive injury crisis.

No, I’m asking for some frank and honest assessment of why we are unable to win a football game at the moment. And some kind of willingness to change it up. We either change it up and come out swinging or we’re going down with a pathetic whimper, is that the Norwich way?

There's one thing you can do to 'change things up' as it stands: get rid of the manager. In doing so you scrap any identity that has been built to get us to this standard on next to no investment for a vain hope that someone else can miraculously turn what is already a cohesive unit as evidenced by last year, into something that can miraculously grab 16th place this season. 

It would be a moronic move.

Morning  All.And how exactly  do we achieve that. Oh guru of football. Please reread your  post, then explain to us more mortals...and DF, where exactly  hes going wrong and more importantly how he can ' easily'   make this happen. No pathetic ar$e covering by claiming that you are on a wind up. Back up your statement or look like a ridiculous  troll.

My opinion makes me a troll....... yeah whatever. If we had spent wisely like Sheff Utd did last summer to supplement the squad i think we could be there or there abouts with regard to league position.

Does that mean the other 12 teams below Sheffield Utd didn’t spend wisely either ?

I didn't realise 12 teams came up with us last year.

All below Sheffield U though, in fact, as more established teams they spent their money even less wisely didn’t they?

In the context of a newly promoted Club Sheff Utd did the right thing in my opinion and that was to spend money wisely in areas that they considered needed strenghtening.

Enjoy being bottom and getting regularly beaten? No thanks. There’s been a few moments of enjoyment this season but they are few and far between

Ah, that must be why Ravel Morison and Callum Robinson have been loaned out then..

I will trump your selective statement with McBurnie and Berge for starters unless of course you think they with several others signed over the summer and in January have not upgraded their squad ?

As had been said many times before hindsight is a wonderful thing. What I've seen this season is that our midfield is lightweight and not physical or athletic enough. If we had identified this and improved it in the summer we would of have to replaced over half our players. Sheff Utd already had much of what they needed in terms of steel.

I had a Tiger, black and yellow, the sports version😂

Used to thrash the **** off it till it blew up, engine rebuild, and start again. 
Can’t recall if they did another model. There was another similar make  that used to be red, nowhere near as quick though.
