Another 4-0 vicory, some consolation for Bryan Gunn

Recommended Posts

Interesting to note that 10 outfield players from last night''s 4-0 victory over Orient also featured in the 4-0 victory over Yeovil. Same back four with Hoolahan playing from the start. After cold shouldering Hoolahan for so long, perhaps Lambrusque has finally eaten a slice of humble pie. If so, happy with that because it paid off well. On topic, after losing 6-1 last night, I wonder if Nigel Clough''s job is at risk ?

Yeovil

 

Norwich: Alnwick, Spillane, Doherty, Askou, Drury, Whaley, Gill, Adeyemi, Hoolahan, Holt, McDonald
Subs: Theoklitos, Lappin (for Drury, 68), Hughes (for Gill, 51), McVeigh, Cureton, Martin, Maric (for McDonald, 85)

 

Orient

 

Norwich City - Rudd; Spillane, Doherty, Askou, Drury; McVeigh (Martin, 66 min), Korey Smith, Russell (Hughes, 82 min), Lappin; Hoolahan, Holt (Cureton, 85 min). Subs (not used): Theoklitos, Adeyemi, Daley, McDonald.

I don''t think Lambert is eating humble pie at all.

At the time Hoolahan wasn''t performing and therefore wasn''t worthy of a place in the team, that''s Lambert''s job and I think those who masterbate about Wes Hoolahan need to understand this!

[quote user="I.S."]Wasn''t Yeovil the match where Gunn didn''t pick the team?
[/quote]

Gunn and Butterworth picked the team as usual. Mr Mc Self Important valiantly flew down to the West Country after the Yeovil match to tell Gunn of his sacking. I say valiantly because he seemed pretty pleased with himself for doing that.

I understand that you are one of the ever presents on here and that as such you feel the need to insult and deride another poster with whom you don''t agree. No problem. Carry on.

I agree that Gunn deserves credit for building a solid team of players, but would also like to commend the way Lambert has avoided the supposed ''freezing out'' of players like Russell, Hoolahan and Doherty, all of whom have a role to play if City are to push on for promotion. It will also be interesting to see what happens with whaley if he comes back from loan soon. OTBC!

Fact is though Bob the question has to be asked.

Equally are you or anyone of the same view as you going to post after every win a ''Credit Gunn'' thread?

Are you going to dish out praise to Nigel Worthington for signing Adam Drury, part of the team that won 4-0 last night?

I can''t help but feel that you''re missing the point here Bob.  Constantly complaining about Bryans'' dismissal and pointing out all the wonderful things he did like bringing in all the lovely new players that he couldn''t manage will not get him his job back.  Life has moved on, and unless you want to become a very bitter person, I suggest you do too.

Interestingly though, 5 of that starting line up weren''t involved last night, read into that what you will.

Seems fair and reasonable.Still, I expect Bob has forgotten the Charlton away (and 4 game before that) and Colchester home performances.

Of course, Lambert is now talking about promotion so it seems pretty clear that now he has actually taken time to appraise the squad and eat some pride, he is confident that the players he "inherited" from Gunn do have what it takes to get into the play-offs at least.

Blah x 3 yes it is indeed good that you have to know when to move on and let it go and Bob is becoming a bit tiresome.However this view seems to have fallen on deaf ears as far as Nutty is concerned.

.....I''m sure Bryan was thrilled Bob........just as I will be when he gets a new managerial post somewhere else....there''s Birthdays, Athena and HMV, they all sell posters as that was truly what he was good at, putting them up.Bob - what do you think to renaming the Gunn Club to Pauls Bar? (because Lambo is certainly raising it).

The players that Gunn signed do have the potential, I think that is correct - but I don''t think that he had a clue to organise them on the pitch which is, unfortunately, the job of a manager.

Honestly Bob, either you''re Bryan Gunn or you''re mental?![:D]

Gunns appointment was totally misguided.

It reeked of desperation, appoining someone just because they were there and popular.

I found the whole "understanding Norfolk" thing patronising and cringeworthy.

What this club needed was an injection of professionalism at board level, and with our new Chairman and Chief Exec it looks like we have finally go it.

For too long the club has bumbled along with well meaning but incompetent people in charge.

I dont care where they come from but give me effective operators over the cloying sentimental approach every time.

Still love Gunny for all the right reasons as a man and a footballer.
