We can win this
at 13:04 10 Feb 2019

Our bench looks more up for the fight than the Norwich players. Avoid any (more) red cards and it’s ours for the taking. COYB

What crisis?
at 15:54 29 Sep 2018

The way we responded to getting battered in the first 5 minutes was a joy to behold. Relieved all that pressure by getting hold of the ball and passing it. Excellent.

Someone wrote a paper on when to sack a manager
at 22:02 23 Sep 2018

“So the optimal strategy for a club would seem to be to allow a manager a honeymoon period of 8 games, and then sack him if his weighted average performance with a smoothing value of 0.121 (putting 47% of the weight on the last five games) falls below 0.74 points per game.
If a club follows this strategy it can expect to obtain 56.81 points per season. It can expect to employ 5.7 managers on average over the ten seasons, and the average quality of those managers will be 3/5ths of the way between good and excellent. To put this into perspective, 56.81 points would have secured a finishing position of 10th, 8th, 8th, 6th, 8th and 8th in the six seasons so far of a 20-club Premiership.”

Was hurst interviewed for the job?
at 10:06 19 Sep 2018

I’ve always wondered because between the Shrewsbury playoff final and his appointment there was so little time. Unless he was interviewed before we approached them. Seems odd we’d appoint someone without interviewing them.

No further questions on why we got him in to play ahead of Downes, Nydam and even Dozzell after that first half surely. What a player.

Really looking forward to Derby
at 04:42 21 Aug 2018

This will really show the contrast between our former manager and current manager’s approaches. Mick was very successful at going to Derby, parking the bus and nicking wins. Last season’s 1-0 was my favourite game of the season - sometimes surviving a siege is as fun as winning 5-0.

However, it will be interesting to how we set out this time. Will hurst smell blood in the water and get at them or be a bit more conservative? If we do go at them, will it work? I very much hope we do and it does. I realised during the Villa game that I am nervous not because I think we might go down but because I am so desperate for hurst to succeed. If he doesn’t, I fear we may revert to another dinosaur.

Thanks Mick

Your football Made me want to hurt myself at times but you’ve made us a ton of money.

Bought Waghorn for 200k, sold for 8 million.
Bought Webster for 750k, sold for 8 million.
Bought Mings for 10k, sold for 8 million.

Spent 960k on those three, brought in $24,000,000.00. (Apologies for the dollars - no pound sign on this phone)

Say what you like about his tactics and personality but that is outstanding.

Now we have the best manager the lower leagues have produced for a long time with plenty of room to bring in the players he needs to impose his style. Exciting times - wish I was there to see it.

Which manager is this quote about?
at 03:06 4 Jun 2018

"But there was always a section of the support who thought he was too cautious and played the margins, defensive when he needed to and with a system.

The squad loved him, but some of the fans didn’t appreciate what they had at the time. It’s a real shame."

Defensive manager whose team can't defend a lead
at 12:25 19 Feb 2018

abuses own fans in local derby. Sick of it now, and I'm not even paying to go to watch. Get out.

On the plus side - wild celebrations from Norwich fans, players and staff at drawing at home to one of the worst Ipswich sides they will ever play made me belly laugh.

Bad game for mcgoldrick to go missing

If he had played as well as he has in every other game this season we would definitely have won that.

That second half was great to watch
at 17:01 23 Sep 2017

High tempo, everyone fired up, but most of all everyone confident receiving the ball and looking to play. Good stuff - unlucky lads.

Nydam's going to be a proper player.
