Chris Hughton admitted his Norwich City side only had themselves to blame for gifting Cardiff City three precious Premier League points after the Canaries slipped to a 2-1 defeat in south Wales.

To send a link to this page to a friend, you must be logged in.

Craig Bellamy and Kenwyne Jones cancelled out Robert Snodgrass’ early opener inside two frenetic second half minutes shortly after half-time and the visitors could find no way past David Marshall despite laying siege to the Bluebirds’ goal in the closing stages.

Norwich dropped three places to 15th following their defeat at the Cardiff City stadium, combined with results elsewhere, and are now just two points above the bottom three after succumbing to a second half sucker punch.

“How we didn’t win that game I really don’t know. You have to score goals and we couldn’t manage it,” said Hughton. “It is hard to take. We did concede two poor goals in a game where I felt in the first half we were comfortable enough. If that final pass had been a little better we might have been able to capitalise on that with another goal. When you give away the two goals we did it changed the whole atmosphere in the stadium. It is always frustrating when you concede any goal but the manner we ddi was so tough to take. We know this can be an intimidating place here but the crowd were fairly quiet and that was down to the effect we had on the game.

“What we did do after such a knock was respond very well after that. Their goalkeeper, as he did at Carrow Road, made some superb saves, we hit the woodwork and we had a couple disallowed. I can not fault the effort of the players but we missed some good chances.”

Bluebirds’ boss Ole Gunnar Solksjaer was indebted to former Canary Marshall for securing his first Premier League win since replacing Malky Mackay.

“It is nice to sit here and talk about the points not the performances,” he said. “I wouldn’t say nervous was the right word but you almost expected them to score in the final minutes because they had the momentum. We had that at the beginning of the second half but luckily we have one of the best keepers in the league, definitely, and that is allowed in football.

“I was sat there watching West Ham and Swansea and then seeing the Sunderland result and it made it even more important to get the result here. We wanted a fresh start, a bright start but we were slow out of the blocks. Maybe I should do my half-time team talk before the game.”

  • Yep, we managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory yesterday thanks to some awful defending - schoolboy errors. If we defend like that (and like we have for most of the season to be honest) we will get slaughtered next weekend. The only way to play Man City is to do what Watford did in the FA Cup. Take the game to them, try to get into their faces, deny their creative midfield space and try to push on up the pitch. It won't win us the game but it may reduce the deficit and would also be sure to get the fans behind the players. If we just do the usual then I fear a very different atmosphere at Carrow Rd on Saturday.

  • We were played of the pitch by Newcastle in mid-week who should have been 4 up at half time. This team made us look pedestrian and second best in all areas. Then they just got beat at home by Sunderland 0-3 - just how dismal does it have to get before we get a sense of just how poor and timid Hughton has made us. It's dreadful - can anyone stand another season like this even if we stay up by the skin of our teeth. AWFUL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • ToxicGWS, I think Barking Wise has probably dropped your penny for you, but just in case: A `cryptic crossword clue` approach: "Chief of an emmett colony". When I first started `contributing` to these boards I was likewise puzzled by references to a dysfunctional manager called "Colin". Somebody pointed out it was part of a `rude` anagram created fron `Neil Warnock`. Btw, just as BP`sBP suspects that Stew and Pa are\is one and the same, I`m beginning to wonder whether Barking Wise and BPBP are\is too. Btbtw; BW, that `trashing` was not a typo, it was using the verb `trash`, ie "damage or destroy". I suppose it`s more an Irish\American expression. I`ve been watching too much Father Ted, Cheers & Frasier. There are those who think I`m two and the same as Michael Bailey. I want to rename myself Gek Brouwer but don`t know how to do this identity changing thing. Ik moete ontsnappen. Gek Brouwer. xxx

  • I take your point TK, all I was saying is that both Cardiffs goals came from initial mistakes by our attackers in our own half. Why were they there? because dimwit Hughton is all aboout trying to defend 0-0 draws with nary a thought of actually trying to win games, and therefore expects all our goal scorers to defend. One reason I suspect that is why Wes can't get a game, Redmond rarely starts, Fox is a forgotten man and we don't have one creative midfield player, or anyone in the team with any flair. Don't anyone ever tell me again that Hughton is a decent man, anybody decent would have recognised their failings and walked before now. This man is arrogant, stubborn, ignorant, pig headed and completely clueless. Apart from that, I guess he's a decent man

Is this because the great tv people in the Sky tell them that they must stick with this man as there is some hidden agenda.

  • To survive we need at least one more point than at least three other teams. If your 36 is right we need 12 points. 4 wins. But it's hard to see us getting them. Our overall win-rate is 25%, and thats not enough. Our current win-rate is actually even lower - 20% (based on previous 10 games.) We need to improve or we're heading out of the EPL. Perhaps it is still not too late to hoof the Hoot if we can get someone in now.

  • Hey, Brewer. I don't mind if you've "turned" even if the apple of your desire is the assassin with the baby face and the curious accent. But don't get too chummy with Brum fans. Remember, it was BC who denied us PL status a few seasons back (coincidentally that was in Cardiff too). Anyhoo, all your talk of managers and agendas got me thinking. Norwich are partial to rejected Magpie managers (even if they do go on to become as popular as botulism), and football is all about merry-go-rounds, so why not go for Matin O'Neill....again? It's only a matter of time before the R of I get beaten by Guernsey in the qualifiers and then he'll be available. He can come here and Keano can go back to the club which dare not speak it's name. OK, he's a bit long in the tooth but Fergy was no spring chicken, nor was that Spanish geezer who turned his toes up last week. This may sound daft, but is it any dafter than the status quo? Discuss (in less than 2000 words, please, Mattias).

Over a year and a half of underperforming, lame excuses ,weak performances. Unless the plan all along has been Championship football? Something has to change, or Hoolahans alleged description of the Club looks accurate.

  • I don't often comment on this board but I do read the posts with interest. I'm no football tactical expert and some of the discussions regarding formations can be a little over my head. But I am very passionate about my club and it is very sad to see what is happening at the moment. A thought has occurred to me and that is what role is the club captain playing in the daily scheme of things. Is he talking with the other players, encouraging them, nurturing them, keeping them working together and most importantly liaising between the players and the manager and coaching staff sharing their concerns, frustrations etc. The disfunctionality on the pitch shows that the team are not working together as well as they should be. Yes we can blame the manager, but once they are on that pitch then the captain should be marshalling and directing the players during the course of the game. A lot of the mistakes being made are more due to the fact that these guys are not happy and are not getting what they need from their captain\s. It does take two to tango and we need to look at all aspects of what is wrong here. CH may not be the man for the job but we do have to question the players' motives as well. Anyway let's hope next week we can shock the PL and beat Man City that would be fantastic!! OTBC

  • With West Ham, Palace and Sunderland all picking up points in recent games, the trap door is back open. This was a must win six pointer for City. No passion, no drive, no spark... It's looking worrying for all concerned. However, McNally believes poor old Chris Hurting is the man to turn it around. Many of us think he should be given that chance, a change now could spell disaster.

  • Oldtimer, You certainly do not need to point the obvious out to me, I realised from very early on last year that CH was not the man to lead us on and upwards. I agree with everything you say and my early post on this site was simply to point out that our keeper and right back both made schoolboy errors to gift Cardiff the lead. Just about every fan in the ground realises that we failed to replace Holt in the Summer and are amazed that we likewise failed to act upon this during the recent window either. Changing the manager may still see us relegated but surely it is worth a throw of the dice.

And I'll tell you what, getting out of the Championship is not easy, could be there for awhile. Mind you, when I was a schoolboy following NC we were always just a 2nd division club, never remotely looked like getting into the old 1st division. The days of Foggo, Black, Curran, Butler, I think I got them right, getting old now, memory's going. Ahhhhhh I will be sleeping well tonight.

  • Some great gallows humour combined with posts I dont even understand. ( What are you taking guys?) My input? Stats! To survive you need a goal difference no worse than minus 15. Apply that now and the teams to go down are narrowed to four - us (-18), C Pal (-18), Cardiff (-22) and Fulham. At minus 31 Fulham look doomed (and after Man City we will probably be too). In fact goal difference is a more reliable indicator than speculating about points. However, over the past decade 36 or 37pts is usually enough. I keep coming back to needing 4 wins. We can do that (really!), but only with a change of manager. I mean what are the board waiting for? Do we really have to reach the bottom 3 before they act? What if we lose 10 - 0 to Man City and other results keep us out of the drop zone? Is Hughton still meeting his brief?

  • When you analyse the situation we are in, it looks pretty certain we will go down unless something turns around significantly. We are not doing well against the teams around us, and we are getting nothing off the top teams. West Brom get a point off Liverpool, Stoke get three off Man U, Cardiff have beaten Man City, etc.. Also, Sunderland, Crystal Palace, and maybe some of the others have the new manager bounce. Despite McNally's rhetoric, I believe the board has accepted that we are going down, and are trying to save as much money as they can - no new purchases, and not having to pay the manager and coaches compensation. In the close season we will get a few million back on some of the players. Maybe the current ownership has accepted that they do not have enough capital to maintain NCFC as a mid-table EPL team, but see a business plan for profitability in the Championship for their level of investment? Trying analyse why our current level of performance is acceptable to the board?

  • TK, "hidden agenda" theories abound. There is a school of thought that anybody who is unimpressed with Hughton has a hidden agenda. I wonder if Sky`s alleged hidden agenda is the same as the alleged hidden agenda of the Dissenters, detractors and those on the periphery? My view is simple (well, it would be, wouldn`t it?):- Hughton is not doing a good job for Norwich City. Surely Sky cannot be that keen on him either, or they`d be picking more of our exciting games to televise? I wonder why Roeder was unpopular? Or Bryan Gunn viewed as a sad fall guy, totally out of his depth. How many really popular managers have we had? Lambert, until... Ron Ashman. Archie MacCauley. Dave Stringer. Ken Brown. John `Barraboy` Bond. Don`t recall folk finding Ron Saunders that prepossessing, though he did OK. SO:- the closest comparison is between Hughton and the execrable Roeder? Perhaps what the hidden agenda merchants should be looking for are similarities between those two guys, not dreaming up sinister motives. (I do not include you in any group, TK!).

  • Having watched MOTD last night, I actually feel a bit sorry for CH as his team let him down so badly. Once again we were let by down schoolboy football early in the second half. Hooper’s wayward pass across the outside of the penalty box was bad enough but Ruddy was beaten by a poorly mis-hit shot by Bellamy. I would have been disappointed if an under ten year old had let that one in. Likewise, the second goal, the ball actually hit Martin on his back less than two yards out because he was facing the goal rather than the ball or the opposition players, schoolboy defending at its worst. Firstly, why was the keeper not putting his first through that ball and secondly why was the right back facing his goal, what do they get taught on the training pitch I wonder. I really cannot see us staying up unless drastic surgery takes place tomorrow.

You don't need to be a rocket scientist to realise that we are in trouble , or that the fans are sick of it . Every game it's the same , inept , clueless , totally devoid of any ideas . When a game is there for the taking , he does nothing . When the opposition start to get back in the game , he does nothing . But when it's already too late , he makes like for like changes . He has to go now , I don't give a fluffy yellow monkey's who takes over just so long as that idiotic trio are removed .

All you can say that if city go down then they deserve it go by what we have seen this season and Hughton has to take the blame he brought the in players into the club any other club would have sack him by know why have McNally and the board haven't this puzzles me . All i can say that for Mr McNally if Hughton is still here next season then i will not be renewing my three season ticket i will let some other mug buy them .

  • Yesterday we defined the art of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. If we go into the Man City game with the sole intention of defending we are done before we start. The only way to play Man City is to do what Watford attempted in the FA Cup: that is to get into their faces, press them and attempt to disrupt their midfield before they descend on our goal. Also when we have the ball release it quickly and get into their half. It won't stop us getting beaten. But it may reduce the pain and if we have a go it will get the fans behind the team. The alternative is another dreadful defensive rearguard action - of which we are no good these days anyway. If we don't have a go on Saturday and get the fans onside I fear it will end up being a very noisy afternoon for all the wrong reasons.

  • Having listened to commentary on Radio Partridge and missing the two Cardiff goals `cos I mistimed my p break, thought I`d give MOTD a look. The thing that struck me most was the interview with Solksjaer, with his happy smile, twinkling, mischievous eyes and weird hybrid accent. I`m smitten! I may be `on the turn`!. Then there was the lateness, as usual, of the Norwich substitutions. With a bit more time, that game was retrievable. Then there was Hughton. Zzzzz. AC Canary is right about Marshall`s saves - why does he always pick on us? I bet he never makes great saves against other teams. Not fair, is it Chrissy? The starting line-up omitted Fer and Redmond, but it was soon clear Cardiff were there for the taking. Changes at half time and go for the jugular. Instead of which we wimped out during my p break. So I was doubly p****d off. The MOTD team were quite kind to us, but the incredulity of the Partridge pundits was palpable. I dread another abject humiliation by ManC, but losing to Cardiff is worse. 3 priceless points spurned. Hopeless, Hughton.

But , and this is without doubt the most important part , always play the game with a smile . How many of our players look like they are enjoying themselves . Makes me wonder what could happen if they were sent out with two simple instructions , play with freedom and enjoy yourselves . Barking don't worry too much , I forget who I am sometimes ;-))

  • Plenty of us can tell you why we didn't win today Mr.Hewtn.You have a siege mentality.You believe in containment rather than attack.You play wide players on the wrong flanks and fail to see this is why so many crosses are inaccurate.You stifle any natural attacking instincts in your midfielders by instructing them not to go too far forward.You fail to realize this leaves your forward players isolated with no support.The play from the back is so slow and predictable that opposition defenders are rarely caught out of position and good scoring opportunities are not then created.When things do not go according to plan you seem incapable of changing your tactics.Substitutions when made are frequently too late to have any realistic chance of changing the course of the game.You play with fear,fear of conceding a goal being your priority.Your players ,by and large are giving 100% but your idea as to how the game should be played is failing to get the best out of them.Whilst realistically we are never going to reach the level of the top sides due to you and your staff we are underachieving and could do a whole lot better.

  • With West Ham, Palace and Sunderland all picking up points in recent games, the trap door is back open. This was a must win six pointer for City. No passion, no drive, no spark... It's looking worrying for all concerned. However, McNally believes poor old Chris Hurting is the man to turn it around. Many of us think he should be given that chance, a change now could spell disaster.

Jones shoots between the posts and away frorm the keeper; we sometimes shoot but think it impolite not to give the keeper a chance. I think five wingers and Hoolahan central midfield should work against Man City. Can't be worse than your current tactics

I just love Solksjaer`s Manchester-influenced Scandinavian accent. Also, he smiles and has a twinkle in his eye. Hughton`s eyes look like those of a long deceased cod on an out of date fishmonger`s slab. Baldrick, Rodney and Father Dougall McGuire have more finely honed cognitive skills than our `manager`. He has all the edge of the reverse side of a spoon.

The thing is, I can't wait for the vote on the Man City score next week. I'm putting down City, yes that's Norwich City, to win by three goals or more. Now, keep this secret, but if we all do the same, Padds and Michael will be able to headline 'City fans remain defiant, and vote overwhelmingly for a landslide victory against next Saturday's amateurs.' It may feel like we've all got piles, but we'll go down laughing, especially if they sack the manager. I'm so happy, I don't really need an espresso, just a hysterectomy will do. Ps.

The fans at Newcastle loved Hughton (and apparently the players did too) but the bosses outrageously dumped him. He did a great job at Brum on zilch resources, but I suppose the chance of another tilt at the Prem was too good to turn down. He was almost universally well received at first, but it has slowly dawned on many of us that the ooomph has gone from the way we play football. Add to that a few too many humiliations against Clubs both small and mighty, and some bizarre decision making, then the Honeymoon has been over for quite a while. Our failure to put Aston Villa to the sword rankles with some folk, too!

Those games included fellow strugglers Swansea, Sunderland, Palace, Hull (*) and Cardiff. 6 points came from those. (*) is The Win! That is relegation form.

And to trevorkeith, can I point out that yesterday, Sunderland hammered a team that could and should easily have put a cricket score past us last Tuesday. We were playing the bottom side in the Prem. with the second worst defence in the league, went a goal up and then capitulated as per Hughtons remit.The man is utterly clueless, has lost any hopes of winning round true supporters such as myself. I have supported them through thick and thin, 3rd Div.

  • Hi Irongloves and eyre11 I wondered that too. Agree if we had Eyre and Kinsey or players of their calibre we would see goals created. I often feel Wes Hoolahan has the same classic touches these two players had with Bobby Brennan chucked in also. Memories

  • I take your point TK, all I was saying is that both Cardiffs goals came from initial mistakes by our attackers in our own half. Why were they there? because dimwit Hughton is all aboout trying to defend 0-0 draws with nary a thought of actually trying to win games, and therefore expects all our goal scorers to defend. One reason I suspect that is why Wes can't get a game, Redmond rarely starts, Fox is a forgotten man and we don't have one creative midfield player, or anyone in the team with any flair. Don't anyone ever tell me again that Hughton is a decent man, anybody decent would have recognised their failings and walked before now. This man is arrogant, stubborn, ignorant, pig headed and completely clueless. Apart from that, I guess he's a decent man

It is talk like that, that has stopped him from being sacked months ago ( o mr houghton is doing ok for little old norwich) if you think small you will always be small.norwich are a big club and would fill a ground of 35 000 with the right leadership , we finish third before and could again.

  • No leadership. Bassong is off the mark since being made captain. There is now a pattern of playing teams worse than us and not having the conviction to finish them off. We play defensively but only in Mr Hughton's delusions can we expect to hold out. Suggest he looks at the videos of Hull away, Cardiff at home Villa at home Fulham at home to see the pattern, You are failing in your job Mr Hughton, the odd blip we can take but not everry week. A few scrappt results and in hindsight the draw against Everton and the win over Southampton looking our best results to date. Oh dear

  • Another awful week over for NCFC. Lucky point against Newcastle, one of the worst games I have had to sit through for ages, then this defeat. My prediction before this game was that I thought the team that list this game would one of the 3 to go down, and I'll stick with that. Especially as our current form is awful, that's now one win out of nine, and barring some sort of miracle next week will be one in ten! Looking after that game, can anyone honestly believe that we will get a result at West Ham away? My heart says yes, always does, but my head says no way. Also worrying is that there are definite signs that there are fractions within in the club. Just look at the niggles that were going on against Newcastle Tuesday night! I used to think Hughton only had a plan A. To be honest, I even doubt he has this now. Just my thoughts, but I'm not sure they count as I couldn't get there yesterday. City till I die!

  • When the club needed rescuing some years ago I like many others put some hard earned cash up to help. After today for the first time since then I feel my money was wasted. Not only do we have a manager who seems incapable of getting the best out of the players at his disposal, it is clear we have a CEO who is paralysed by fear of making a wrong decision and therefore makes none. Once we are back in the Championship I hope the Chairman dispenses with the services of McNally and CH and rebuilds with people who have a regard for the way the club should play football. At the moment we are an embarrassment to the PL.

  • Norwich under CH have been boring, boring, boring - with no sense of adventure or confidence. We are like a desperate climber hanging on to a cliff by our finger tips. The team is paralysed from the half way line onwards. Whoever though RVW was worth £8 million was wearing a blindfold. The rest of the team (with the exception of Snodgrass and Redmond) - little pace or control, but worse, no aggression and scared of the ball. Lambert re-built us quickly - Hughton has taken us backwards from day one with his negativity and survival mentality which backfires constantly. We even played one forward at Wigan last year and lost 1-0 without a shot...nothing has changed. It's Rubbish CH and fans are bored and Norwich are sinking quickly. Mick Phelan or Malky Mackay - now please NCFC power brokers. 11 games to rescue this turgid season of dismal fear filled football or we will have to begin as a Championship side yet again.

  • Adelaide Canary, good point about captaincy. Captaincy IS important and Hughton has made it clear that he does not see it that way. Last year he prevaricated over renaming Holt for the job, this year we have a two-headed captain. Oddly, Snodgrass would probably be the best man for the job; there`s no doubting his passion and commitment. But his egocentricity is overpowering. Send him on an expensive leadership course! Off topic, "NCFC Old Boys Watch". Yesterday, Bellamy, Vokes, Martin & McDonald all scored, as did that dear old doyen Jamie Cureton. Bless!

  • The only decent -available - manager to replace Mr. H is Zola, though my long term preference would be someone like Thomas Tuchel, ex German U21 trainer and current manager of Mainz in the Bundesliga: promotes youth, encourages attacking football, personifies team spirit, and is seen by many as the natural successor to Joachim Low as German manager - which seeing as Germany stand just behind Spain right now in terms of playing the beautiful game is no bad thing!!!

However, we will no doubt get what we deserve in some of our upcoming fixtures. CH will still be there blinking in disbelief and feeling sorry for himself.

Hope that finally the team will click and play with confidence and conviction, as a team. Currently the Club is in a slough of despond and who out there thinks that Hughton is the man to lead us to bright sunny uplands? Obviously the Board do , because 20 hours after defeat by the bottom club, there has been no word that Hughton has been asked to clear his desk. This, surely , is the triumph of optimism over the reality of past performance?

Tettey thinks we just need a bit of luck and said the atmosphere in the dressing room was like someone had died. Hope there's a counsellor on hand next Saturday to help him come to terms with the genocide which will be Man City. As for luck, you make your own, Alex. The raw materials for "making luck" are (1) a forward thinking board, (2) a manager who doesn't "struggle to comprehend" everything and (3) a committed team of quality players. We haven't had any of these things for several months, therefore there isn't going to be any "luck", and when we drop into the bottom 3 next weekend, we are there to stay.

Possible? not a hope in hell, Sadly in my mind, our dream is dying, its obvious to all of us, but still nothing is done about it, Houghton should of gone in November.

  • We snatched defeat from the jaws of victory yesterday. It was as if the team didn't believe the could win so better revert to type! How anyone can still believe Hughton is the man for the job totally baffles me. But more baffling is the silence from the Board. I am loathe to criticise them because Delia and co saved us from the brink a few season ago and without them we may not even have had a club. But on this occasion they ought to be big enough to stand up and admit they made a mistake appointing Hughton in the first place. But worse, failing to act in the interests of the club and its loyal fans when it has been patently clear for a long time that we were only going in one direction under Hughton. Sorry to have to voice this opinion but I feel in my heart that is the reality of the situation. Palace, Sunderland and Cardiff all changed their managers and the first two in particular have now had a new lease of life and are on the up. I am not saying changing the manager is always the panacea but what Norwich desperately need is someone to come in who can motivate a team that whose belief is now zero and start setting the team up to play properly and with purpose. But I am afraid the horse has bolted and now is too late. So the Board is going to have to suffer the consequences of relegation along with its fans, who deserve better IMHO. Hate writing this but the facts speak for themselves.

  • A sideline to all of this: last night I went to see my other team, Malaga CF, play Sevilla. And what I saw reminded me so much of Norwich City under Lambert. We went 1-2 down but came back with two goals, the winner very late on. Like the Norwich team under Lambert Malaga (having lost all its star players due to finances) is now a group of average players but with a will to win and never say die attitude. It just shows that, as I have said before, a team of average players, properly trained, organised and prepared, can collectively be winners. Sadly all that has now left Norwich City. Hughton has totally failed to address the most basic flaws in our game, despite the time and money he has spent. In fact he has taken the club backwards at a rapid rate of knots. We snatched defeat from the jaws of victory yesterday and I am hard put to see where or when we are going to accumlulate sufficient points to stay up, especially given the games ahead. I fear we will not only be relegated but with a very poor number of points and idiotic goal difference will see us end up bottom of the league.

They are currently reminding me very much of Norwich City under Lambert: average players but fully of energy, commitment and a never say die attitude. And just like Norwich under Lambert they won the game in the dying minutes, coming back from 1-2 to win 3-2. How many times did we see Lambert's team do the same? How things have changed under Hughton. All the virtues that won us games and praise, despite an average squad, have gone to be replaced with nothing positive. We cannot even defend properly, the midfield is inept and often totally failing to deliver anything and as for our attack....the goals for column speaks for itself! I agree with those who say a change of manager cannot guarantee improvement. But that should not stop us trying. Doing nothing is not an option because things will never improve under Hughton. We lack organisation, cohesiveness, true commitment and drive. In fact we lack just about everything that would make us a half-decent footballing side!

Yesterdays result was a disaster - a draw would have been fine but a defeat especially given other results now really puts us in the poo. The performance - 5 minutes excepted was better but CH is clueless - to persevere with RVW when he clearly has no confidence seems pointless - Becchio I think currently would offer more. Are there 3 teams who will get less points between now and the end? Cardiff look poor, Fulham also and after that I don't see any others. Depressing but it has been for 13 months or more.

Play with 1 striker if you like but get the midfield up in support with Fer and either Pilks or Wes. Our Squad is just about good enough but the coaching is certainly not.

  • woeful . we failed to beat the team that were bottom of the league, had taken one point from the previous 7 games, just like we lost to fulham who get thrashed by everyone, and only scraped a lucky draw with Newcastle who got beaten at home today. Woeful and inadequate. Most of the other teams around us have changed managers and invested in the window. I really am beginning to think that the boards strategy is to hope we say up,, but make sure that we don't spend so much that we go bust if we do go down ... and don't forget sacking a manager costs money ...

  • Just to correct a few people---it is not the last 4 games of the season to worry about---it is the last 5 i.e don't forget FULHAM---away.

  • One wonders if the Chief Executive ever requests a match report from the Manager. Would be interesting to know how Hughton justifies that performance to his employers.
