Sevilla are ready to make an approach for Norwich midfielder Leroy Fer.

Seems more likely than QPR.

Don't think we will see Fer training with Norwich again. With Pilkington, Surman and Hoolahan back in favour would we be better cashing in on Fer.

(2)
(2)

If we are going to cash in on anyone, Fer is the one to let go. He would be no great miss. To be honest I'm surprised anyone wants him, let alone are willing to pay so much for him. If letting him go means we are more likely to keep hold of the others, I'm all for it.

Norwich have no ambition in wanting to get out of the championship with first attempt, redmond and fer worth least 8m each, I recall a crystal palace wonderkid going to man u for 15m why can't we do the same, if can't except hen these lubs have plenty f money then he stays,

(1)
(3)

So we're now starting to have a go at the club over rumours from newspapers? Stop being so negative over things that haven't happened it's pathetic!

QPR bid for fer but rejected, will they be back once they receive the money from the REMY sale?

£8million plus?

The Tazdevil

(8)
(6)

If Leroy Fer doesn't want to go, then Norwich shouldn't sell him. If he does, and he hasn't indicated such, then as a member and scorer in Hollands world cup squad, surely it must be 10k plus!

(7)
(2)

I take it you mean 10m plus he prob earns more than 10k a week!

(3)
(1)

I don't think Fer would want to go to a small team like QPR. Norwich would be daft to let him go if doesn't want to. I actually think he will go to a bigger club / top half team or stay till the next transfer window

(4)
(1)

Yes, I did mean 10 million plus - oops!

(2)
(1)

They can't afford him, they have massive debts and can't see them being able to pay the sort of fee Norwich will command. Fer is a dutch international, we (NCFC) want to keep him and don't need to sell, so its gona cost them big money.

NCFCcrazy

(5)
(3)

We will have to wait an see how much city do want to keep Fer and Redmond. With both of them on long term contracts, there is no hurry to offload the pair they will still have considerable value this time next year. This will be a good bench mark of city ambition to go straight back up.

your avin a laugh 10 mill for him played ok for the first 3 months then went In slow mow don't think we will miss his 3 goals a season. let's be selling him

(2)
(3)

The prem is worth an apparent 80m so 10-15m for Redmond and Fer is peanuts. Keep them and get promoted. If we look like we can do it without them sell in Jan where you get premium value. If we hold on to them and sell next year we will still get the same value as now as they are under long term contracts.

Its up to Adams and his team to get them buying into playing well for Norwich and not sulking

Are we really going to sell Redmond for only £6m. It would be an absolute joke if we accepted anything less than £10mil. I don't understand why other clubs put big price tags on there best players (and still get the fee) while norwich trade in tiddley-winks and old brass buttons.

(7)
(2)

We're not going to, we rejected that bid. He's worth 10+.

(8)
(1)

Don't sell him but if we must it should be for £10m+ and 50% of any fee if he is sold again because he is going to be a star for England in a few years

(3)
(1)

I'm happy for Redmond to go - great up to the point when he needs to deliver, but then no end product. If there are a number of interested parties, then we should get over 10 million. This will be a time to see if the board really have got balls, in sticking to the statement "we don't need to sell".

(5)
(1)

How can you say he has no end product? Have you seen what he's done for England U21's? Yes he may not have done it yet in the Prem, but he's still very young. A season in the Championship is exactly what he needs. He's also going to be in a team playing more attacking football.
I get so frustrated with people saying "let him go for £10m", yes you have money, but then you have to spend it trying to replace him with someone who could be as good. We spent £2. 5 to get him, if you take that out the £10m it leaves you with £7. 5. By the time you've bought someone else in you aren't going to have much change, thus making it pointless.
Unless it is a player we don't want, or they are having a paddy and don't want to play, we should keep everyone. That's how we get straight back up.
Banjo.

Why sell Redmond and fer? Two players who could compete in the premier league. Surely the ambition should be to keep them, storm the championship and then add to them,. if they want to go - tough! Tell them to knuckle down, get us promoted and then they will be back in the premier. £15m each min.

(6)
(0)

One thing that was clearly lacking last season was any form of quality coaching. With that ironed out, we should see all those who were misfiring last time, starting to produce. and we know Redmond can do it, because he's done it with the England U21's!

(4)
(0)

I don't think that Redmond is as good as Pilkington and Bennett, and those two boys kept us in the Prem. If he goes, we still have 4 wide players, with the two Murphys. If we're going to adopt the diamond, I doubt whether 2 will be required in any one match. It would also give us a fair amount of money to spend in January, if we needed to. Looking at past promotions, it seems that the teams that can inject some new talent for the run in, normally finish strongly and are at least involved in the play-offs.

I see norwich will let redmon dgo for 6 million were he want to say good old norwich want to sell our good players but they did not think what all norwich city fans are paying the price of watching prem players in the championship but still paying prem prices so come on city give us something back for once {Ed015's Note - Norwich have not put a price out there, pure speculation and the press assume 6M}

(2)
(18)

So you're slating Norwich for apparently wanting to sell their best players, of which is pure rubbish and seems as if you're making speculation up and then moaning at them for your idea. They've quite clearly said they're not selling.

(12)
(2)

Unless the price is right, witch means that any premier league team with their huge incomecan afford

(6)
(4)

Every player has their price. I agree we should do our best to keep him. But if somebody comes in with an offer that is to good to refuse. we have to do what is best by ncfc both on the pitch and financially.

(8)
(0)

Nothing like making something up and then blaming the club for your fantasy-typical of the sort of "fans" the club doesn't want or need.

Yes, every player has his price-there isn't a club in the world that won't see a player if that price isn't right and if Norwich receive an offer for Redmond, or any player, that they would be foolish to turn down, they'll sell. But it will be considerably more than £6 million.

(6)
(2)

Ncfc should make a statement that no players will leave even for stupid money! For the life of me if they want to return to the prem then they need them all. 20 mill in the bank is no good if it stops them from returning to the prem. None of the board has a business brain amongst them, fact!

(3)
(7)

I think if we add a centre back and a right back to the current squad, get rid of Bassong and Becchio (although I feel for the lad), I think we'll have a great chance of returning to the Prem. I always thought we had a good enough squad to stay up, but Hughton just didn't know how to get the best out of them, or how to install any confidence in them. I think Neil Adams will return to the Lambert formula of you'll score 2, we'll score 3. I also guarantee they'll be a whole lot more empathy between team and supporters this year, plus a lot more flexibility with the formation.

It's interesting listening to all the cries for premiership football next year. did anyone enjoy the last 2 years?? hopefully this season will be exiting and we win a few games. Blame the manager all you like, but these players should have done better! RVW had loads of chances in the end and Redmonds final ball is shocking! Bennett and Pilks are better so keep them and let Redmond go. Enjoy an exciting season. it will be great!!

Harry Maguire would be a great acquisition - only 21, but won player of the season at Sheffield United. He's also just broken into England under 21's. {Ed015's Note - i think Hull are in prime position for that signing.}

(2)
(0)

Redmond doesn't have a final ball. He was playing on the wrong side of the pitch all season because snodgrass was on the right. The one game (Manchester city) he did play on the right he destroyed the left back and was man of the match. Give him the start of the season on the right and I think he will be a different player!

(9)
(0)

That's true. but do you remember the 1st game last year v's Everton? him and Elliot Bennet on the left. what a partnership!

Norwich are interested in signing Sheffield utd defender harry maguire. Could this be the end for bassong?

(12)
(10)

Bassong will definitely leave I reckon, to be ho est he would not be ahuge loss

(12)
(6)

Hull have made a bid (rejected) but the player has said he wants to move to Hull so I expect a deal will be thrashed out. Has a lot of promise though so would be happy to have another U21 defender in the squad.

Anyone notice that are offering 7:4 on Grant Holt returning to Norwich?

(3)
(10)

We should have a better idea of who's leaving, once Neil Adams names the 25 who are travelling to Italy

(5)
(2)

Let's hope not on the return of Holt. We had his best days as a player, may be on the coaching side some where. be a massive step backwards as a player. Stay away Grant stay a legend.

Would be happy to see Holt come back on the coaching staff, to give some tips to the forwards we have. Also, let him play some games with under 21's to show them how it's done and to gain some match savvy from one of the best

Hooper to West Ham might happen

(1)
(17)

I think QPR is more likely

(7)
(13)

Hammers have just spent 15 mil on a striker can't see him going there

(12)
(1)

He won't be going anywhere he will stay this season and if we don't get promoted he will then leave

(11)
(4)

Not so sure he will leave, had a good little spell last season but hardly proved himself a Premier League striker. We won't let him go cheap and can't see anyone being willing to spend the sort of fee we will command. Same applies to most of the NCFC squad.

not many rumours of players coming in why is this {Ed015's Note - All the rumours seem to be the other way ATM maybe we are just looking to replace who leaves,if any.}

16 Jul 2014 07:58:33
I don't see why clubs are coming in with 4-6 mil bids for our top players. Ie Redmond, fer. Why would we sell without a big profit? Redmond could be worth £12+, look at figures that have been brandished for young English tallent.

(14)
(3)

If we got £7m+ for Snodgrass who only had a year left on his contract and in my opinion was a one trick pony, we should get £10m + for both Fer and Redmond.

(14)
(4)

True
It's important to keep our better players if we wish to push for promotion.
I know every player has his price but not that cheap!

(12)
(2)

Clubs come in with low offers knowing they are going to be rejected. But their aim is to unsettle the player and hope he puts in a transfer request.

(7)
(1)

I can see us losing at least Fer, Olson, Redmond, RvW and quite possibly Hooper and Ruddy too. If we get sensible prices we could recoup £40 million plus. I believe that all these players want to remain in the Premier League and will push for transfers (with the possible exception of Ruddy); all have been subject to reported bid interest, although at unacceptable prices. If NA sensibly reinvests at least half of these potential funds, I still feel we will be in a great position for the new season. Obviously however, there are a few big ifs involved!

(8)
(10)

What is the point in generating £40 million in player sales, when you are under one month from the start of the new season?

By this point there should be no discussion or debate on who MAY be in or MAY be out. We SHOULD have a confirmed squad of stayers who SHOULD be concentrating on becoming expert in each others style of play and capabilities. oh yeah, and creating the TEAM SPIRIT that was lacking last year.

(10)
(1)

No team has a complete squad at this stage of pre season. Why would we be any different?

(7)
(0)

What would we do with that 40million, nothing!! It will cost more to replace them if we do manage to get promoted.
Everything should be done to keep these players. I would suggest at least 10 million each at a minimum to even think of negotiations.

(9)
(0)

Can see at least Redmond and Olsson going! and I can't see us going up if we get rid of our better players, Redmond will end up playing for England so we should keep him

(4)
(1)

Redmond will never play for England as long as he plays for Norwich. I'm afraid the old boy network that is the FA would never allow anyone from a club that isn't in the top 10 of the EPL to play. Grant Holt should have had a shot two seasons ago but was 'too old' despite being the second highest scoring Englishman in the league that year.

So, Joe Boil's off to Mersey side's reserves, not that bothered to be honest but it does beg the question if the board felt NA needed a baby sitter why appoint him in the first place? I'm really trying to stay positive but I'm sensing a season of abject failure

(9)
(7)

Yes not looking forward to the new season either, hope i'm proved wrong but don't think adams is the answer. I think more players will move to bigger clubs and we will get average players in to replace them.

(10)
(7)

I think there is a reason why fans ask board to get a REAL MANAGER. because if not, like adams, is possibly, most likely, definitely not going to attract real good players and staff, or even hanging on with them. Rather spend money on a real manager, than those whatever staff

(9)
(6)

Adams may be inexperienced but he's also fresh. the club has a new structure and approach and he's the only manager who would come in without demands of how the club works. we won't get promoted this season. we will let players go, and buy average players. We will settle back into the championship. we are a championship club and always will be. Its nothing to be ashamed of. If you won't get behind us just because we aren't in the premier league then you can go pretend to be a man u fan like the rest.

(3)
(6)

Oh dear we really in trouble we can only score 6 past Braintree should of been 12
the boy who has no end product managed to get lucky
The waste of money from Holland has scored but for that money against them he should be scoring 50 in a game 20 more than Messi at least
And that useless irish man put down his pint and scored a cracker of a free kick but it was only from 35 yards should of been 35 but na not learnt how to appeal to the ref yet

Oh no wait sorry everyone's pessimistic attitude must be rubbing off on me

(6)
(6)

Do we have to put up with these "back from the pub" moronic comments? If you haven't got anything constructive or articulate to say, please stay off the site!! {Ed015's Note - Everyone is entitled to their opinion.}

16 Jul 2014 11:28:21
No Tettey, Braintree and Bassong and Becchio at Kings Lynn! I'm happy for all three to leave if they want to. {Ed015's Note - Tettey was injured, swelling on knee, as for Bassong he gave a very professional performance at Lynn.}

(1)
(1)

If Bassong can get his head sorted, and wants to stay, declares it in public, then I would love for him to stay.

(4)

We need to see the Bassong we saw two seasons ago, not the clueless one of last season.

Leroy fer to qpr for £4.5mil. {Ed015's Note - Probably just an opening gambit would be surprised if he went that cheap, anyone else?}

(6)
(14)

£6 million at the very least!

(11)
(4)

Still got 3yrs left on contract, World Cup goal scorer for the third placed team, can handle premier league football and an unproven championship player has just been bought by Fulham for 11million. That sets the standard as far as I'm concerned. If the board agree to sell him for less than 10million we will know exactly what there ambitions are. League one

(14)
(0)

£10m in todays prices

(16)
(1)

I don't get why we are expected to sell our players cheaply? Fer is contracted to us so pay 10-15m really annoys me when we let people go for a poor price

(12)
(0)

Looks like NA back room staff not going to plan with rumours that Joe Royal slope ping of to Everton goal keeping coach doing one as well, that's without not being able to choose his own coach in up young coming Foley lol. let's hope things go better on the pitch. Not exactly of to flyer with the 1-0 win over the mighty Dereham Town, hope he doesn't forget to put that on his CV clubs will need to know this when looking for a top manger in Europe.

Fer's agent claims no contact from London but a lot happening around Leroy, that makes me think there's a lot of interest but nothing worth taking from city. Raise your bids chaps or do one!

(3)
(1)

Snoddy went for £7m, McCormack £11, Fer is better than both those players so must be worth £15m surely? Chances are, he has a release clause so any fee will be based on that rather than how much we think he is worth. {Ed015's Note - McNally said no release clauses exist.}

I was on the same plane home from schipol airport last night as RVW, obviously as it's such a large airport he could have come from anywhere. My assumption was he was seeing friends and family in the Netherlands but seeing he is not in the squad for the Dereham town game I'm wondering if it was discussions with another club?

(7)
(11)

Or it could be the same reason as many other players he went to see family and after the flight wasn't 100% no point risking players.

(5)
(0)

Or he missed training on Friday, due to a slight injury and is expected to be in the 21 man squad for Tuesday night, just like neil has reported?

(10)
(2)

Hes dutch for god sake, chances are he knows some people in holland, on another note, neil adams has aditted he has never seen lafferty play (before the mighty dereham) so cannot comment on what he can bring to the norwich team!!! what a thing to say mister adams, I think we are in huge trouble!!

(6)
(6)

Its going to be a joke of a season

(8)
(8)

So much pessimism, also he wouldn't sign a player without knowing something about him.

(4)
(4)

Having seen Lafferty and Grabban at Dereham on Saturday, I think they both look like really great signings. I was surprised by how quick Lafferty was, and with his build and height, could be a real handful. Grabban too, was very athletic, and I could see the two of them combining really well together. They both looked a lot more mobile, with physical presence than Hooper (height) and RVW. I was very pessimistic when we signed them, but having seen them in the flesh, I think we're in for a good season.

(7)
(2)

But is a 1 - 0 win against Dereham Town good enough? Even at this stage in the season.

The team Norwich played was a pretty strong one all things considered, but the result poor. I'm generally a glass half full sort of person but I don't think this season bodes well.

(4)
(5)

Can't believe people are so pessimistic, we now have Lolfaherty. He will score at least 40 goals this season!

(4)
(2)

Pre-season results mean nothing. I also think its about time we got off RVWs back, the nonesense about him wanting to leave if we got relegated started before he even joined the club. Its unfair on a player who, despite having a hard season, still speaks positively.

NCFCcrazy

(8)
(1)

It's the same every year, the same old Norwich fans thinking pre season determines how well our season goes, well it doesn't, how about we judge the team after 10 games or so instead of being negative before the start!!

(7)
(0)

I can't argue with being positive but we are talking about Dereham Town not Aldershot Town. Surely playing professional football is like riding a bike, you don't forget how to do it especially in the 6 weeks you have off each year.

Anyone who says pre season doesn't count is delusional. It has a psychological impact on the players and the fans if nothing else. A one nil win over Dereham doesn't fill me with a great deal of confidence for next season, or are we suggesting that Dereham Town play football as well as the top Championship clubs? It's one thing to have your glass half full its another to have so much wine you end up drowning in it.

(1)
(3)

I never said pre season doesn't matter, I'm saying the very first few games back don't matter, they're about getting players fitness back, what's the point in trying to beat a poor side 5, 6 or 7-0 and risk players getting injured?

(3)
(0)

Adams admitted not seing lafferty before signing him, watson gone, royle arrived and now gone (good he's a tractor boy) I can't see anything apart from a terrible season looming, hope i'm wrong!!

(1)
(4)

Every game matters in professional football. The team are being paid a week what most people are lucky to earn in a year. They should be proud to pull the shirt on and give 100% every time they step onto the pitch. Which one of us true Norwich fans wouldn't give our left arm to have the opportunity to do the same? Perhaps since Dereham Town are such a good side we should sell all the current team, spend the money on increasing the size of the ground so everyone who wants to watch City play can and then give the Dereham players the shirts and ask them to play.

Maybe Joe Royle smelt the coffee, saw the underwhelming business plan and targets for the team and decided Everton's reserves were a better prospect. Little Norwich mentality strikes again, no wonder Paul Lambert jumped ship.

(1)
(2)

Or maybe Joe Royle being one of Evertons most loyal and popular players couldn't turn down his own club, much like if you were at a League 1 club and Norwich wanted you, I'm sure you would jump at the chance!

(2)
(0)

Don't forget also that Joe Royle lives over near Liverpool.

Redmond reportedly linked with both Stoke and Southampton! Why is it that all we read about is who is interested in our players and naff all who is interesting us

(8)
(8)

Because we had some good players last season. We got relegated due to our board keeping the 'very nice man' in charge for too long. Any other manager in charge and we would have stayed up!!!
If we were such a poor team no one would want our players

(13)
(1)

He has 3 years left on his contract and is still very young. Well worth keeping him price must be well over 10million, a couple of good seasons and he will be worth 20million

Just read here

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/football/teams/southampton/10959163/Southampton-ready-to-offer-Nathan-Redmond-a-swift-return-to-Premier-League.html

that we'd apparently let him go for £6 mill. I really hope we don't sell him and certainly not for that low amount

(7)
(8)

It wasn't just down to Hughton, there are plenty of bad players, if the team were so good we would of stayed up.
Redmond is not one of them though, great potential should try and keep hold of him.

(6)
(2)

Really not looking forward to the new season already, not happy with the new signings and it seems we are going to lose the good players that we have got

(4)
(6)

I still think at least five more of our better players will leave and be replaced by the board with cheap alternatives to ensure we stay in the championship where they want us to be

(3)
(6)

There really are some pessimistic fans on this site! Writing players off before they have kicked a ball. This is not support. It's pathetic! It's a new season, new start. Let's have a little optimism When we kicked off next month we need to be vocal and behind Adams and whoever has got the shirt on!

(4)
(5)

I think the board want us to be in the prem but with the smallest outlay possible. Don't get me wrong I'm please NA has been given his chance, but I'm beginning to think others interviewed for the job were after a bigger transfer budget, and Neil was only to happy to get his dream job. Hope I'm proved wrong but the way things are panning out in the transfer market it don't fill me with confidence that prem football is going to happen any time soon

(6)
(1)

I think that if we can manage to keep most of our squad from last season we will get promoted. It is all down to the commitment of the board to maintain a premier league squad so we have a good team spirit for promotion. If Ruddy stays he is showing the belief and commitment we as fans deserve.

(9)
(1)

I think we should let Redmond go! He's clearly not a team player, just like his cohort: Snodgrass. Either he hasn't got the intelligence to play a part in "team play", or he's simply out for glory the whole time. Either way, I want us to be a Germany next season, not a team that rests their hopes on the occasional (very occasional) bit of brilliance by one or other individual.

(3)
(3)

Redmond/ olsson/ ruddy/hoolahan and even hooper are key players and has got to stay for any chance of springing back up next season. fer, bassong was poor last season so cut loose but what ever we need another c/b plus better cover for ruddy bunn is not up to standed but nice to see rudd back

Rovers have slapped a £10m price tag on the goalscoring Jordan Rhodes after an £8m bid from Norwich was rejected.

Rhodes might not be happy with the situation as It's claimed the 24-year-old has requested a pay rise.

(9)
(8)

The sale of hooper to QPR may fund this?

Or

Should we keep hooper and hope he SCORES GOALS?

(9)
(3)

If reports are to be believed Jordan Rodes is on £60. 000 a week and he wants a pay rise. That makes him way out of our reach. Chris Brown who they signed a couple of weeks is reportedly on £10,000 which is part of Blackburns so called new pay structure now there parachute payments have finished or declined rapidly. That makes Rodes a big burden on there wage bill. The club and an agent at work here to instergate a very inflated move. Have Rodes any day no question. But as NCFC fans we are being led down the garden path. Who knows?

If mccormacks worth 11million rhodes is well worth 10million, better player

Hooper looks cheap at £5m if he can score goals at Championship level.

Leeds will have the money to but Becchio.

(7)
(1)

To be honest I highly, highly doubt Rhodes is on 60k a week. But I heard we were paying Gutierrez something in that region during his time (crazy I know) so is that actually out of our region by so far? Would they have put a bid in the first place if the didn't think they would be able to match a players demands?

What do you make of the McCormack situation ed? Any chance he'd come to us over Fulham? Talk of Becchio going in part-exchange? I'd certainly take that. But do we really need McCormack? {Ed015's Note - Personally I would rather have Rhodes.}

(4)
(4)

I would rather have a good centre-half ad our left-back position sorted before we buy the rest of the strikers currently in the championship. It's all very well improving our strike force and after last season it certainly needed it but if you don't think our defence needs the same amount of attention then you are deluded. Yes I know the management has said every department is being looked at but talk is cheap and action seems thin on the ground.

(5)
(1)

I think that if Bassong leaves, which seems likely, we need to bring in another centre half, although the lad from the under 21's looks a good prospect, plus a decent right back. I'm not totally sold on Whittaker, he seems to be lacking a bit of pace.

Any news on the McCormack situation? It sounds like he is either interested in us or Fulham. I'm not really sure we need him as a player. Would far prefer to focus on our defence.

QPR are interested in buying Hooper.

(9)
(4)

Also interested in signing Messi and Ronaldo but doesn't mean its going to happen.

Seriously though, he is going to bang them in in the Championship so he will be important to us this season so unless a stupid offer (like the Snoddy move) comes in, then it won't happen.

p. s. £7m for Snoddy, lmfao, not worth that!

Luciano Becchio is set to end his Norwich nightmare with a sentimental return to Leeds.

(11)
(4)

Becchio to be part of deal that's sees Ross McCormack come to Norwich for 8million plus add ons if we get promoted.
Hooper is definitely staying unless a premiership side come in with really silly money. he doesn't want to leave and Norwich don't want to sell.

(8)
(13)

Seems the most likely player to leave as has been totally overlooked by the coaching staff

(6)

Hope hooper stay and the wolf lower level football be good for them both as for becchio he can go just a bench warmer

Gary hooper will be sold to hull city in the region of £6m. It will come as undisclosed as norwich don't like brandishing figures around, Callum Wilson has agreed personal terms and an announcement will take place Monday. Andrew surman will sign for Bournemouth this week for a fee of 800k, sebastian bassong may head north for Celtic although has gathered interest from Rennes

(3)

First callum wilson has signed for Bournemouth already and I don't see hooper leaving now

Wilson has signed for Bournemouth, so that's the first one wrong.

Wilson already signed for Bournemouth.
Surman maybe?
But hooper hope not.
If bassong moves on that will leave us very short CB's only turner and Bennett. Martin at a push.
Will need to replace and quickly.

(7)
(3)

Errr, callum Wilson has for Bournemouth

(8)
(0)

Martin will play CB this season. He has swapped to #5, said himself he feels he is more effective there and Adams played him there last season. Turner, Bennett and Turner is enough with Gafadti and Toffolo is reserve. We have the squad now but I would like to see a young creative player in the team possibly. ?

Bassong has to leave. current player has said he his 'poison'

Good cb,
is this what we need?

(9)

Wouldent want to come to another championship club and could not afford his wages. I wo. uld think his ambitions are bigger than norwich

(9)
(5)

Well he was at Fulham and they released him, if he was in demand he would have a club lined up! City could afford his wages depends if they want too!

With the new squad numbers out, do you think it means Olsson at 23 and rvw at 20 are leaving for sure?

(6)
(13)

What were their numbers last year? have they changed?- I would have guessed Garrido was 3 last year . would they give them new numbers if they are "definitely leaving"? {Ed015's Note - Garrido was 18 last season}.

(1)
(6)

Ollson was 23 last season so probably not. Rvw put on twitter earlier. Yes I've been given number 20. Guess it's just a number. Which suggest to me he has no plans on leaving.

(9)
(3)

Don't forget Bassong at 30. From RVWs tweet, no. Bassong yes. Ollson, same number as last year so no.

(7)
(3)

3, 15 and 28 been left free NA planning on 3 more transfers? {Ed015's Note - There will be plenty of comings and goings before the end of the window.}

(9)
(0)

If Olsson was definitely staying would he have been given the No 3 shirt?

(3)
(7)

Whittaker was number 3 last season

(7)
(0)

Squad numbers mean nothing now players pick there own

(9)
(2)

Wolfswinkel tweet suggests he's not bothered about the number so lagferty was probally wanting 9, olsson same as last year, bassong leaving as he'd surely be 3 or 15

(6)
(2)

With Wolfswinkel number 20, I reckon Adam's will play him centre mid

Good luck to Snodgrass, good business 8mil give yourself a pat on back the NCFC board. Now the smoke screen will start to throw you of the cent to where this 8 mil disepears to. I see first was they have bid 5 mill for Deeney and 10 mil for Mrcormack, along with Fulham. I wonder how far or near to the actual truth any of is. If so any of this is true why buy Lafferty? Still no mention of a centrel defender, and I don't think Snodgrass will be the last to move on for good money. Would be happy to lock the gates at Colney with Bassong on the outside and go with what we've got, and may be splash some cash in jan. opinions!! -

Look guys I know bassong was awful last season but I think he felt to much pressure on his shoulders after setting the bar so high the season before, I'd still argue the fact he was never fully fit all season and because of this it looked as though he was disinterested sloppy and pretty hopeless however I think a fully fit bassong a bassong playing in the championship for a season will be a rock once again and give him some confidence back. I really think we should give him one a chance play him along side Ryan bennett a player of youth and good talent. As for the rest of the team I think we will hold onto everyone else except fer and olsson but I don't think we will choose to sell I think it will be weather they want to jump ship. If we can hold onto these guys we will have one strong side for the championship. Rvw will go out on loan though that's why we bought lafferty in as cover for hooper grabbon and loza

(4)
(15)

Fear wants to stay as does rvw, they've stated as much but I guess in reality it's not always true what these blokes say

(12)
(3)

I'd have to agree with giving Bassong a go again this season but on the proviso that if he costs us points in the first few games, he's out and not given more time as per old regime. I think we'll keep hold of the rest and don't see the need to go for Deeney and/or McCormack as they won't like being equals to some of our lads rather than the big stars they are at their clubs. Hooper and RvW to fire us back up for me.

(7)
(6)

7 Million for a one footed player who if he had a right foot might have scored a few more vital goals when he had chances, seems to me to be a very good deal

(8)
(2)

Wasn't sure why Laferty to begin with, but upon reflection, 40 odd games in the championship plus cups, allowing for injuries and loss of form etc 5 plus strikers could easily be a significant advantage. However, the same applies to defenders and midfield as well, so, still a case for further use of the Snodgrass revenue to develop a healthy completion for starting places. After all, cash in the bank won't seem nearly so attractive if promotion is missed for a hapeth of tar.

(8)
(1)

Bassong is dreadful, he got us and Wolves relegated.

(10)
(5)

Bassong was also playing for Newcastle when they got relegated so it 3 times in 4 years he has been relegated from the Prem.

'solid cb' wow what were you watching last year?

(17)

I don't really think there is any need for debate on Bassong. He was awful last year, and I think he will have made it clear that he no longer wants to be here since Hughton has gone.

West Bromwich Albion are keen on signing Norwich City left-back Martin Olsson.

(11)

Don't want to lose him but if it's silly money then you got to take it

(11)

Hopefully WBA will buy cresswell from the blue outfit down the road, leaving Olsson at Ncfc

Why not sell Olsen and buy Cresswell?

Leicester City and Norwich City are both chasing Bosnian winger Edin Visca,

(10)
(5)

Hope so, excellent player, linked with arsenal before and it will be excellent if it's good price. Rate him better than Elliot B or even Redmond, though if he is in, he will be replacing Snodgrass. Watch some videos of him, good teamwork, good eye for goals and assist as well

(17)
(1)

He is an awsome talent but where does he fit in the team with players like redmond Murphy pilks and Elliott bennett? If we did get him that would be 5 wingers for 2 positions.

(5)
(0)

Firstly, and personally, murphy brothers and all those youth talents in general, are not as good as you might think they are and as a club trying to climb back up, they are not trust worthy enough to take the job. Secondly, redmond, again, young, it is a positive and he does show great talents. But final product is poor and I still remember him having a shot like 40 yards out at the emirates, never liked him that much I am afraid, rather sell him than snodgrass, althogh I will get hated for that from most of the fans, but that's my opinion. Visca will be an excellent buy, hopefully, if the board can be sure on him not repeating mistakes such as redmond did last season, and to be honest, redmond deserves to be on the bench and I believe we really missed pilks.

(16)
(9)

If the youth are not given a chance to prove themselves, at what point do they become trust worthy? Or do you want to flog our top young talent? They will not be wanting to sit on the bench this season. Josh got a taste of first team action towards the end of the season. I'd rather give him a go now than blow a few million on a player who might see us just as a stepping stone or is a total flop!

(6)
(11)

Well said I think Redmond is over hyped, and over rated. that will be two of us now! Not that we will need quality next season! Just Hoof it up the pitch too Lolfaherty, aka Stoke. Otbc.

No way

Another forward linked to us, how many do we need?
10 and ruddy, very attacking team!
I would like another solid cb, don't concede don't get beat. basics!

I would be please to get samaras, good perfirmance in the world cup for greece

He can play midfield aswell he used to when he played with hooper at celtic

I have been told in good faith that Garrido has been told he is surplus to requirements at Norwich. Two clubs rumoured to be in for him are Real Sociedad and Parma, who were both also looking at him back in January.

(6)
(13)

Doubt it, he's our only back up LB.

(9)
(3)

Olsson?

(7)
(2)

Olsson is first choice, Garrido is back up.

(9)
(1)

If the rumours are true West Ham have Olsson on their radar.

I am sure players will be told they are surplus to requirements if we have someone else on our radar. Or Adams thinks a youth player can step up to the mark
