Ruthless but painfully honest assessment from GNev

Football this season apart from a couple or so games has been pretty grim

The recruitment given the money spent was some of  the worst

We got conned with RVW  and Naithsmith  but the loans and buys this season must rate up there

Excellent observation but I do feel there is that sense of unmitigated doom felt by any player identified as being on Norwich's shopping list. Unless of course we are in the Championship and looking for players from lower leagues. Probably the same with managers, after the Frank debacle.....'Who me?' 'Nope never been discussed'

Hughton had a style. It was horrendous and I'd never want it at my club ever again, but he definitely had a way of playing. Smith doesn't.

Yes, so far that's true. Everyone keeps telling me how stylish and inventive his Brentford team were, but I haven't seen anything remotely like that here yet.

In 70 years supporting my beloved Canaries, this is the worst group of players in Yellow and Green.

Few triers, can't tackle, get bumped off ball to easily. Only a hand few are worth their wages. Taking the money and laughing.

Can it get worse I ask ? 

No chance of coming back net year. Wasted season

They've not been good but we have had far worse teams than this one, certainly so in 1956 and some pretty poor outfits in the 1960's but of course those were in a much lower standard of football.

What I would suggest is that this is a season where we are well short of the standard required for the league in which we are playing. In most seasons we are at least in touch with everyone else but this season we have constantly been miles short of where we needed to be.

I've only been alive 30 years and yet I've seen several worse NCFC squads than this one..

Miles short Ricardo. Would have been easier to climb Everest than compete at this level I would suggest!

The quality in the Premier league improves every year but we constantly seem to be two years behind with our upgrades.

Painful, but true. 

I told all and sundry they were down at the start of the season just as I told all and sundry they were down at the start of the season two years' ago. You only have to look at who the owners are and what they stand for.

Simples.

I certainly don't stand for any of the things the Socialists stand for, hence "they".

The club is just a production line of players passing through. It has no integrity of its own. It exists simply on a supply and demand arrangement with the market in footballers.

On paper the squad looks good. Sadly the game is played on grass.

In terms of performances this squad is right up there with the worst. Sure you can be subjective about the quality of the league and mitigating circumstances, but crikey we are poor.

Of all the season we have been promoted this is the one which ive decided that the self funding cannot and will not ever work.

The chances of buying in a gem or two is outweighed by the sheer numbers of quality players bought in by the rest of the teams.
