This Season

Recommended Posts

When you look back to the start of the season , Hughton made a couple of strange decisions , he let both fit again Ayala and Vaughan both go out on loan to Forest and Huddersfield .. Both players had been significant £ signings by Lambo the previous season , although JV had been a dodgy one considering his previous injuries , a fit Vaughan having watched him at Palace when we were promoted was a real handful and scored goals .. Ayala had looked very good in the Prem last season until he also got injured .. Vaughan won the POTS at Huddersfield scored 15 goals more than Holt , Morison , Kane and Simmo put together .. Yet we let a fit Vaughan go and start the season with Holt who wanted away , (we could have got 5 million for him and signed Danny Graham as a replacement )  , Morison 1 goal in 17 matches , Simmo (who got us up and will always be a hero to us all ) but is not Prem class - 3 goals last season and Harry '' why did we sign him '' Kane , no win in the first 7 games not many goals , you wondered what was going on .. but the we go on a run that surprised everyone 10 unbeaten , but then we lose 4 on the bounce and the goals dry up .. plus we go out of the cup to Luton  .. It was obvious to every Norwich supporter that we needed a new striker , Holt had 4 goals , Morison and Simmo 1 each , so we go chasing Hooper for 8 million , crazy money for an unproven Prem player , but we get Beccio and Kamara , so we all think ok .. Kei we all loved , but he''s not Prem class , 1 goal in 11 has put us where we are , along with Holty 2 in 19 .. but why hasn''t Beccio played , he had 19 for Leeds when he came to us .. but yet he hasn''t played , sometimes he hasn''t even been on the bench .. To compound our misery RVW is signed in March , but what good is spending 8.5 million when he can''t play until August .. If the unthinkable happens I doubt he will be here next season .. The recent defeats at Wigan and Stoke have to be two of the most depressing matches I''ve been to , no shots on target , no passion , no belief .. 2 wins in 19 plus a dismal Cup defeat to Luton has made the last few months awful for us all .. no other club would tolerate a run like this CH should have gone in Jan and we should have snapped Adkins up like a shot  .. when CH came I just knew he just didn''t have the dynamics or charisma needed in the Prem to keep us up .. he''s a nice guy but the Prem isn''t the place for nice guys .. We needed McNally to show the ruthlessness he had towards Gunny to save the season , he could have saved it in January  .. but he didn''t and here we are .. I am praying and hoping we can find something vs WBA and City because of all the seasons to stay up this is the one where the financial rewards are massive ..

The strangest thing about the decision to let Vaughan leave on loan was that he was the only one of the strikers to show any form and endeavour in our pre-season tour in Europe. From memory he scored three of more goals, seemingly back to fitness after an injury-hit year.

 

Now Vaughan is the player of the season for Huddersfield, and while he has scored only 13 goals, - twice as many as Holt this season, he has saved them from relegation almost on his own. Most of the rest of the team were below standard in the Championship.

Supposedly he hadn''t settled well in Norfolk, and wanted to move north. But one thing does seem srange, and that is the apparent lack of a recall clause, given our paucity of strikers.
