|Anyone else off to Boro tomorrow?|
at 22:59 28 Dec 2018
Or are me and my lad the only mad ones?
Were staying in Leeds for a few days and it’s only just over an hour to Boro so we decided to go along, plus it’s another one off his list of new grounds (why he keeps picking the ones I’ve been to as ones he wants to go to I’ll never know)
I think we may need a little luck tomorrow to get anything from the game but it would appear the natives are far from happy up there

That Bullard/Gio/Lawrence esque marque signing in January that can drag the team with some class to a better place, yes sure there are other areas that we need bodies too but I think one big signing with some other seasoned championship players around them and we could drag ourselves out of this mess
|A few observations on the “Hurst saga/era”|
at 21:49 25 Oct 2018
I know that hindsight is a wonderful thing but I do wonder if part of the problem stems from the initial saga and process when recruiting Hurst
Think back to May when we interviewed numerous people and we are lead to believe we’re interested but never offered the job to anyone else. The public courting and open talk by Evans that Hurst was effectively the man he wanted for the job, despite being impressed with Jack Ross, seems to have had an effect that PH was almost seen as the golden choice that Evena hung all of his hopes on.
One can only imagine that this had given Hurst a sense that he was the messiah and he could do what he wanted, I think that whole saga was where the problems started.
Talking to a colleague of mine today at lunchtime before the sacking was made public he asked me whether he thought that we would turn it around/whether Hurst could start to get some results, I had to admit that there was no was no way that I could see that happening and that is why he had to go.
Another interesting musing that people bandied around in the last weeks was that we never got thrashed by anyone, nobody scored more than 2 against us in those 15 games......... in my opinion no team needed to thrash us as with a 2 goal lead there was little chance that anyone was getting beaten as we really offered nothing whatsoever upfront.
The whole era needs to be swept aside, forgotten. It has happened and yes it may well take some time to recover from and get the team back to having a core of championship ready players, hopefully we can get some of our youngsters back in January, add a couple of experienced players and stay up, ready to fully rebuild in the summer
|For all of those neutrals that say we havent|
at 21:50 24 Oct 2018
Been thrashed by anyone as yet, no one has scored more than 2 against us......... that is a fallacy as teams know that we offer nothing going forward and whilst 2-0 may be a dangerous score line for us to defend once the opposition get 2 goals we have no fight to get 1 back let alone 2
Absolutely no fight in us whatsoever
at 21:29 24 Oct 2018
Is the kindest word I can think of, bereft of any ideas whatsoever going forward, unable to get out of our own half.
The man needs to go now before it’s too late to repair the damage that is done.
Looking at our team we would struggle to make mid table in league 1 at the moment
|Tonight showed us a few things|
at 00:01 19 Sep 2018
1- Spence is not good enough either as a WB or a RB, he should be back up only now Toto is back
2- Donacian is a right back and not a left back or LWB
3- Ward can play out wide if he is given the opportunity
4- Edwards is our best player and should start if fit
5- Jackson, wow he has some pace and also some engine to keep that up for 90 minutes
6- Gerken is worthy of the number 1 jersey at the moment
7- Eden has definitely done something to severely P155 PH off if he wasn’t considered to be in the starting line up tonight
|He scored one of the best goals I have ever seen in person... RIP Beat|

I only wish I could find a link for it, half way line goal against Leeds Utd, we lost 3-2 but the legend scored such a stunner.
In this age when the word legend is used all too frequently Kevin Beattie was a real true legend who will live forever in the memory of any town fan who ever had the pleasure to watch him play or met him
Edit, I found the goal

Is what I said........
Only to be corrected by my 14 year old son who said gone by Halloween
To be fair I’m not sure what to make of the current situation having only seen 2 of 3 home games but the situation had better improve pretty sharpish or the fans will start to turn and ME will have no alternative
|So under the additional measures for Sunday’s game........|
at 21:02 30 Aug 2018
I see all of the Norwich fans will be able to enter on the same family ID
Norwich City fans are reminded to bring the picture ID evidence ie Driving Licence/passport etc required for the verification of their ticket purchase as checks will be made to ensure only persons who have bought tickets are attending the match

Quite a nice comment about thanking all fans including all of the ones who have got on his back and shouted abuse/booed and jeered him. At least some class which is rare for a budgie.
|This is pure quality from the match reports section of yesterdays game on here..|

TonyHumesIpswich added 02:05 - Aug 5
Bart (6) made one poor mistake
Spence (2) poor, particularly in second half
Chambers (8) good performance
Knudsen (7) kept it together
Edwards (10) outstanding debut.
Nice to see the ball being played on the deck. Some positive play but we need to improve in key areas.
MrTonyHumesIpswich take a bow for not even recognising Spence went off injured before half time......... what a plonker
|Expensive premier league loans vs lower league gems|
at 22:39 31 Jul 2018
Looking at some of the fees being paid by us this summer even with the departure of Webster am I alone in thinking that Hurst is chosing to spend the money that MM was spending on an expensive loan fee and salary on players of our own that we have longer term than 1 season?
Personally I think this is a great way to go unless you are able to bring in a real star from the premier league such as Fulham did last year with Mitrovic.
Surely the PH way has got to be better for building long term team spirit rather than to have to replace 3-4 loaners each summer and effectively need to rebuild half of the first team

Really? That is why he should never be up top for England! My gran could have nodded that in
