|If Norwood is here next season...|
at 21:12 2 May 2021
If any Club wants to pay say £2m then fine otherwise I hope he'll have some better partners that he's had in last 12 months. So many have had very poor records (Drinan Parrot Hawkins) so its easy to see why so few chances come his way!
On top of that he isn't suited to loan striker role but who knows what Cook is planning to secure a 20+ striker in the break.

Last decent taker was Veno but trouble now is that we don't get into the penalty area that often to win any!
Penalty takers should give the keeper no chance so hard down the middle should work every time so maybe Bishop would be good.
|Radio Suffolk - Where do they find these callers??? (n/t)|
at 20:52 2 May 2021
I can't get radio Suffolk but what used to get me were the callers that hadn't seen the game or the others who went droning on and on every week. Still sometimes it was quite amusing on the way home.
Happy days hopefully will return
|Positives from this Season|
at 21:59 29 Apr 2021
Good maybe but not excellent.
With a decent set of forwards and attacking mids his mistakes wouldn't have hurt us. If he stays then some coaching may make more of him. He should be dominating all our set pieces at 6 3 and scoring plenty of goals/
It's up to him to step up!
|I can only think some of the players haven't taken to Cook|
at 18:06 5 Apr 2021
Cook should never have replaced PL. It was too late to make a change and instead should have left Gill in charge for rest of season. Or at given Butcher and Dyer the reins.
But I guess ME has never made a good choice or decision in his entire time at Town. Not even MM could make anything from this bunch of wasters. We've got L2 players at best so no surprise that they're lost for ideas at a level beyond them! Just think for a moment, we've loaned out players to L2 and below but none have excelled so its about time we realised that.
I'm not sure what the answer is! Maybe we need the takeover with complete clearout of players and management. Only good appointment made by ME was MM to get us out of trouble that ME had created. ME must sell without any more delay as his tenure is dragging us down.
|Team for today|
at 14:13 27 Mar 2021
Doubt it, more like his age. No pace and too backwards, he can only get worse!
at 10:23 20 Mar 2021
Thats' a good shout as his absense has cost us, if he'd been fit and playing like he started then we'd have a solution.
But for now i'd definitely go for 532 and put Woolfy in the central role, he likes to get forward can tackle etc. Its' essential we have two up front as forwards aren't good enough on their own. Get back to Jackson/Norwood as it worked before.
|I know its sad news about the takeover but...|
at 10:55 16 Mar 2021
Yes just imagine, we'd be a well run football club with proper funding. ME has without doubt been a disaster (couldn't be any worse!) with all his appointments except perhaps MM who was only taken on to clear up the mess left by the previous idiots.
Can't believe we could get any worse but if takeover doesn't go ahead then just hope that with Cook he has at last got it right.
Trouble is Cook has taken over a poor squad that have been playing poor football so if we don't get up this season (which I doubt) then ME needs to make sure Cook has the funds to build a team and style capable of winning L1.
|How come Norwich got Daniel Farke and we got the Marcus Muppet Show?|
at 10:45 16 Mar 2021
Not sure I understand your question! DF is a manager/coach and has been given the opportunity to develop the Norwich into a very good team. However ME is the our owner (sadly) who relies too much on others. Whereas Delia loves her team and funds the manager plus has put in place good management.
We can only hope that Cook is the right man after all the poor appointments made by ME. If the takeover goes ahead then I hope we get back to being a well run club.
|Player of the season so far? (n/t)|
at 20:17 15 Mar 2021
What's missing from the suggestions so far is any attacker. The defence has performed very well despite having forwards that can't score and midfield that can't provide decent suppor.t
So for me its a straight call between the current 4 defenders with perhaps Wilson shading it.
at 22:08 8 Mar 2021
I'm not sure any of them are good enough for L1.
In the past teams have been successful using strong quick and experienced players aka Rotherham and Coventry. Loaning youngsters with little experience can only be a disaster. The pairing of McG and Woolfy was bound to fail against seasoned attackers which should have been apparent to PL. Apart from Ward who's too slow/old and at the time unused Kenlock we had no decent left sided defenders. Very poor team building IMHO.
Strangely other clubs have recruited far better with less funding. I'm not sure what Cook can make of it all but guess he'll soon find out. It'll be interesting how he blends it together and whether it will work.My guess is another year in L1
|Keanan Bennetts is so god damn infuriating (n/t)|
at 22:01 2 Mar 2021
Put Dobra on wide right as he'd make more of the space and would attack the RB.
I agree that KB has attributes but as has been said his final ball is v poor, his crosses rarely hit the mark and to top it all he doesn't take advantage of of good positions in the penalty area. He should have scored3/4 gaols by now!
So far Edwards not up to the mark as he continues to make too many mistakes. So I'd give Dobra another chance off the bench at least.
at 23:41 28 Feb 2021
I think that he's had more input in the last two games which might explain more why the play and results have improved. Guess he'll be around for short term at least.
|Attack vs Defence - Expected Goals rating|
at 20:09 22 Feb 2021
It just goes to underline that our problme has always been with our attack. But PL can't see that as why on earth did he sign Parrott with zero gaols for Millwall and a young right back who's no better that what we have/had with Donacian.
He should have gone all out to get proper strikers but for me it's too late to turn it around. 12th is best we're going to achieve with PlL in charge.
|I have a theory|
at 19:59 22 Feb 2021
I hope you're right but not expecting anything different from ME/PL
|Has the penny finally dropped re Chambers?|
at 15:39 12 Feb 2021
Agreed, we needed experienced CBs where that counts but full backs that have plenty of energy and pace. Both Kenlock and Donacian are perfectly adequate at this level.
Chambers in all his time here has proved that he's not a RB so if he has to play then CB is the only place eh should be considered for. Having two young CBs has been very hit and miss plus neither are lefties.
I would bet that Kenlock and Matheson are more likely to cope with back to back games than our two 35's. Ward has been a big disappointment for me (just a shame we didn't get Garbut) while Kenlock is now proving he's good enough.
at 15:16 12 Feb 2021
Lambert has been a disaster for all his appointments since Norwich. After Hurst i thought it can't get any worse but he's managed it!
Sadly I don't think it'll get any better until he's gone.
|So: Play Off Winners (fluked) and Lambert in the Championship|
at 14:59 12 Feb 2021
Not going anywhere this season so with the big clear out I sense that maybe a new manager will be able to start afresh which is what should have happened this season. Another dose of Lambert was never going to work, he's a complete disaster.
