  • I loved malky to bits as a player but he got Cardiff promoted and then couldn'y hack it and was sacked Allardice you're having a laugh if you thought Hughton was boring. Nobody ever makes it without their first break so it Must be Neil adams 1 yr contract and he will take us back he knows his young players who would walk on water for him and I think he would have a good chance of keeping our better senior players

  • Well said, Pritch. Cotm is, sadly, a Dullard. Don`t let the "Dumb & Proud of it" mob drag you down. Poor Moonster has little gravitas.

  • Sorry COTMoon Never intended to talk over your head. Which words were too difficult for your limited vocabulary. Was it 'relegation' - if so perhaps you should reflect on what has just happened to our club and direct your comments to the situation at hand instead of trying to belittle others who are trying to make sense of it all. On the Moon indeed. You look and sound like a very small person from the real world.

  • It is not the length of the words but the length of the whole thing that seems unnecessary.

  • I didn`t notice any particularly long or elaborate words in Pritch`s contribution. Maybe it just seemed that way to Cotm?

  • I have to agree that Crouch would be a great acquisition

  • Bungayboy I don't think we should assume that McNally had the power to sack Hughton. It may have been other members of the board who delayed making the obvious decision four months earlier.

  • Agree with you completely Pritch. Ignore Canary on the moon, Hughton lover that he is.

  • Hughton should have gone at Christmas or not at all. That's what caused the problem and there's only one person responsible for that! MacNally should be made to go. Neil Adams should be offered the position. He's a brilliant manager. But I said it all year, Norwich would go down and Malky will be the new manager. Good luck next season regardless of what happens.

  • Why has there been total silence from MacNally. All season he has had plenty to say.

  • Ultimately it is the 18 Man Squad whom on several Match Days were just not Emotionally,Mentally or Physically capable of producing a style of collective Football which would have ensured at the bare minimum 17th out of 20 EPL sides. To me the Board and Management are on the perifery when it comes to the actual successes or failures; it is those players who repeatedly, by putting our shirt on, declared to themselves, Management, the Board, and, most of all the fans of NCFC - that regardless of the opposition they were readied and "up for it". ow wrong they were :(

  • Hey Pritch, if you're going to use long andor unnecessarily elaborate words to accompany your superb use of hindsight, get someone to give you some help with your spelling

  • Interesting discussion. I agree that the Board should aim to appoint a manager soon to enable the new man (or woman) to encourage some players to stay and to bring new players in. I would bring back Rudd anyway either to replace Ruddy or to back him up if he stays. Above all we must get strikers who can score and a style of play which all at the club can support. QPR may well go back up with Charlie Austin back to fitness. Hooper could probably do a similar job but we need an alternative. Remember injuries at different times to Hooper, RvW, Howson Fer andE Bennett have contributed to the derailing of the current campaign. Lets cheer the lads on Sunday to show that NCFC have the best fans in the league. OTBC

  • In the light of failure and the bitter taste associated with relegation two things stand out as fundamental to our demise. The first is the adoption of negative football which stood oblivious to any meaningful transitional game. As a result while our defense was generally stout the continual pressure place on it from constant opposing attrition meant submission at some time in the game and an ultimate loss. Once we got behind it almost inevitably meant defeat.The other aspect relates to the effectiveness of our scouting system. With Holt gone a new strike force was required. With pockets full we chose 3 new strikers. Their collective influence on the team, producing a very meager goal tally was nothing short of disastrous. But perhaps more relevant here is how on earth did RVW end up at Carrow Rd. A large fee was paid for him, and the even larger question is why and who authorized it. After a season of watching him it is very evident he has nothing to offer, really nothing. He is slow, his ball control is very weak, his distribution skills are basically non existent and he is too small for premier League defenders who have simply eaten him up all season. Resale value - well good luck. Hooper, our Scotish hope had some skills but was overweightunfit, lazy and I sense played scared. His challenges were few and far between and challenging with the head not in his playbook. Elmander - well enough said. So who put this trio together. Who looked at these guys and could not see the obvious deficiencies. These are the guys to blame. They are a major cause of failure. Why do we not have Long in our team, why is Tony Pulis not our Manager. The stench of unnecessary relegation surrounds the Canaries. We need some fresh air and some new blood directing the team.
