Reading Match Thread

Listen (as a certain Glaswegian often said)

We can have as much ball in and around the box as we like. We can even have big blokes like Jerome and Lafferty attacking the ball in the box as much as we like. But crossing will always be an inefficient scoring method. If it wasn''t, Tony Pulis'' Stoke would have won the league.

Michael Turner should be ashamed of himself for his attempt at defending the first, and Ruddy more so the second. It''s terrible!

Until we remember how to defend and how to create chances consistently with focused passing in accordance with this ''Norwich Way'', we are going to remain in the Championship midtable.

I don''t like to be negative, but unless Phelan sorts this out and quick, we are going to be spending at least another year in this division.

Must be time to give San Miguel a try at the back as he can''t be no worse.And next time the team sheet goes up can someone please rub out the "y" at the end of Ruddy

I think Gary Birtles had it right when he said on The Radio Nottingham postmatch phone-in the other week that "Norwich have got some good players but they''re not a good team." Responsibility for that surely rests with Adams.

What a bizarre post...  Adams signed three central defenders in the summer, and leaves all three on the sidelines, instead he plays a right back - Martin - as a central defender.  This decision also moves our first choice central defender Turner to the left side (he usually plays on the right).
Our best central defender is currently lining up for one of our rivals.
All of this is under Adams control.

[quote user="bristolcanary"]Yes Really Orford. We know who picks the team. Most would pick Turner and Ruddy.[/quote]Turner has just let his opponent score twice from a Corner and Ruddy is having a ''mare.

That is my point. They are generally first on the teamsheet though.

The substituting of Lafferty with Murphy was a change crying to be made.

[/quote]i''m sure Lafferty plays just to get sent off... he has b*gger all else to his game!

Sorry Bristol, not having a go, just totally frustrated with watching what could be a good team go down the pan whilst the Board sit on their hands and do nothing.Phelan is not the answer, we need a proper manager in now!

Oddly, there seems to be little defending of Adams whereas last season, half the regulars were so far up Houghton''s butt, they could taste what he was eating.

Oh, you don''t have certificates or experience as a manager so you shouldn''t doubt those who do. They know what they''re doing.

Bunch of blind jagaloons.
