Halt the horse and stop the rot We should beat Villa on the trot. With Bradley Johnson centre forward, the levee will break and wash away. The villans defence all torn and tattered, to the four winds blown and likely scattered, and at the last you'll hear our cry: 'Wesley, Wesley Hoolahan', But we hold no grudges to our foes, we lend them salt for all their woes.

  • Framboise, like it or not, we ARE a big club. That doesnt give us any less of a chance of relegation does it? I'm going for a draw of some variety but my head actually thinks you will come away with the points. From my perspective, a Norwich full of confidence will actually suit us. Hopefully you will come at us and thats when we are at our best. They owe us a home win, make no mistake, they owe us big time. I have long said, you play good football, you dont really warrant being where you are. I, like yourselfs, wish for 3 points for my team this weekend, but i honestly think im destined for another gloomy Monday at work. UTV.

It seems to have carried right through to the present day. Fingers crossed that City can win two games on the trot. Even a point would be good. Hopefully City will attack Villa and go for the win.

Gek Brouwer is determined to saw through the branch which he's sitting on and fall headlong into the open jaws of Gene Putney. But that's his prerogative and he does it with such elan. Also, Johnty, Johnty, Johnty, Johnty, Johnty and Johnty, all of you should know by now that some of his posts are tinged with irony, (not to be confused with the activity which comes after laundry). They are what makes the sun rise, the birds sing, the flowers bloom and the stars twinkle. They also keep me "regla" and distract Olly Gunar Sol£$%^&* from the task of keeping Cardiff in the PL as he [Olly] daily scours the internet for "billets doux from Romeo Broux". So diss Gek at your peril ! ("diss" as in disrespect not the one near Long Stratton).

I was more annoyed that the BBC showed the clip and seemed to try to infer it was because we had won that particular game.

  • For the first time this season I'm going for a Canary away win. It will be tricky as we may have to alter our style of play from the last four good performances. Villa are very much a one trick pony relying on breaking out with Agbonlahor, Weimann and Benteke speeding clear. They did torment a poor Liverpool defense at Anfield both last season and this. Luckily the latter two are out of touch at the moment. City may have to lie deep and be patient and hit them with a bit of their own medecine. We all look forward to seeing Lambert leave the pitch to a crescendo of abuse. With a bit of luck this may persuade Villa to press the panic button in the next couple of weeks.

He has ensured that they will never receive any justice by coming to some shoddy agreement with the terrorists. Just so he could glow in the glory of a settlement. I know football supporters campaign about justice for Hillsborough. But at the end of the day they were killed in a tragic accident. Who is going to campaign for all those blown up and murdered.

You're right though, Fer is a quality player, but sometimes I question his stamina. If the rumour mill is correct about his injury, at least the team picks itself: 4-2-3-1 (Snoddy, Howon and Redmond being the 3 and Hooper up top). One les thing for CH to worry about. Now he can concentrate on the subs.....who to bring off, who to bring on and when to do it.

Don't think I can handle the level of posters going "its ok dont need him, we got Howson". no1# Fer is quality regardless of whether hes on form or not. Quality is undoubted. Competition is also bringing the best out of our central midfielders. Losing Fer would be a massive blow. Give it just 3 weeks and same people who are claiming not to be fussed by his injury, will be screaming and moaning for his swift return.

  • Dear Brew I have certainly had my doubts about the sincerity of Chris Hughton and David McNally, but please consider this: Macnally’s father died last week. He has received criticism for criticising CH. The display of emotion that was witnessed at the end of the Spurs game was not in any way stage managed, and he was not doing it for effect, in fact he tried to hide the fact that he was totally overcome. Dare I say, have a heart. I dare say it, because I know that you most certainly do, and that it is most firmly rooted in the love of this club, just as it is with all of us. Yes he is paid handsomely for his work, but I genuinely believe he is sincere, and possibly utterly sincere. At a time when he probably knew his father was dying he was brave enough to come out and issue a warning to CH. I believe this galvanised both Hughton and the team, and that we decided to make a name for ourselves, because I believe that even CH , let alone the players and the board, want this club to succeed, although I admit that like many of us, and particularly him, take the most extraordinarily complicated method and ways of demonstrating this intention. I most certainly do. One of the most moving responses I have ever witnessed, was the response of Spurs fans to the trauma that Fabrice Muamba suffered. In an instant, tribal hatred was banished, Gordon Strachan could barely contain his tears when as a pundit he had to comment on the spectacle. I have rarely felt so moved, and none of it was stage managed, far from it, it was one of those moments when the integrity of the beautiful game was realised. I shall not watch any of the Qatar world cup. It will be my protest to the unnecessary deaths of the many construction workers. This most definitely is not the beautiful game. And in the name of nepotism, I’m going for a two one win to us. With kindest regards

CH needs to think of how to use the few good players he's got more intelligently than he's done over the past few weeks if he wants to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. Perhaps this is one occasion that he should think about attack rather than defence?
