Neil Adams says he is still looking for a midfield player to replace Leroy Fer.

I would expect him to keep Surman just in case he can't sign a midfield player before the transfer window shuts.

If he does manage to recruit a midfielder he could let Surman leave. We play Bournemouth on 30th August and the window shuts on 1st September at 11pm. So if he does go there it could well be on transfer deadline day.

Cameron Jerome Confirmed. We could have done a lot better.

We're in the Championship remember, Cameron Jerome is a brilliant signing for £1.5 million! Who are you exactly expecting us to sign?

(6)
(4)

Think Jerome could be a good signing, offers us something different and should be right at home at championship level, look at kenwyne jones

(6)
(3)

Tell us who then pal?? who exactly would you have got with your vast football knowledge????

(3)
(3)

If you look at the silly money Blackburn want for Jordan Rhodes who was withdrawn early in the second half. Plus Ross Mccormack who cost over 10 million, hasn't scored yet and was described by his manager as unfit and over weight. We have down very well.

(4)
(1)

Probably just an Ipswich wum, I think we have a good line up with different options now, not a bad squad assembled by Adams and the board, tough league requires tough players, that's why RVW was shipped out and fer just got an inflated ego after his WV goal!

(4)
(0)

Cameron Jerome is a beast! The reality is that we are in the championship now, at least for another year and you can't expect big money signings straight away. Mcnally and the crew are probably treading carefully after last summer signing gluttons and waitin to see whether Adams deserves the funds for those high quality players. Cuellar and Jerome have been Premier League players after all! Back the team to go out there and perform in the derby. COYY

Norwich City manager Neil Adams is contemplating a season-long move for 19-year-old Chelsea starlet Nathan Ake

(12)
(3)

He is quality, those that watched him against city youth cup winning side will have seen that he was a real talent, looked head and shoulders above the rest

(11)
(1)

Would be a good move for a future star. Also Liverpool are allegedly loaning Jordan Ibe to Bolton for a season, we should attempt to get hold of him as cover for Redmond

(6)
(2)

Cover for Redmond! Seriously the guys way better then Redmond already

(3)
(5)

I agree if available go for ake. But as for cover for Redmond, we have plenty of winger not least our own youth player josh Murphy. Who when replaced redmond the other night did a lot better than Redmond did while he was on.

(7)
(0)

I watched all the youth games and the Murphy twins are far better than him. Josh Murphy was amazing against zabaleta when we played man city. Our youth team is good enough we don't want rubbish players that will end up in leauge 1

(2)
(4)

He played games in the champions league and you say that he will end up in league 1.

(5)
(0)

But, they play in different position lol 😂😂😂

(5)
(0)

The murphy twins are quality yes but ake is a completely different style of player, he was that Chelsea youth teams best player by a country mile, he would slot into most mid table prem teams without a doubt

(5)
(1)

Nathan Ake is a centre back, no comparison to Josh/Jacob Murphy.

Ibe is the winger, he was mentioned above as potentially going to Bolton.

(6)
(0)

Well why is he not in a mid table prem team on loan then

(0)
(5)

Because they always start of in the championship to toughen them up and then next season it would be the premiership, to see how the step up in class goes, you don't run before you walk mate!

Leroy fer not in tonight's lineup must be on his way any news ed? {Ed015's Note - I think we are just waiting for confirmation now of his move to QPR.}

gray0604

(3)
(2)

Thing what's bothering me is what is the price we got for him? yesterday they said 10m but todays Sun (Wednesday 20th) says only 7m!

(1)
(1)

7m + sell on fee = 10m

(1)
(1)

Didn't miss him anyway, still got howson to come back and if we just get a couple of others in we will be fine, got 6 goals in 2 games at home so Adams is getting something right! OTBC

(5)
(0)

How come fer is talking to the dutch press saying he's off and needs to be playing in prem but we are told nothing, bad treatment for towards the club that gave him a chance and got him where he is today, get rid and cash in I say!!!

(2)
(6)

He probably talked to the press once it was pretty obvious that the transfer was all but complete. Got him where he is today? He was already a big talent before he joined us and probably would have ended up in the tops leagues anyways.

No bad feeling towards him, I would love to have kept him but he is far too good for the Championship. Good luck Leroy!

Sunderlands, ex-Aston Villa & Rangers defender, Carlos Cuellar undergoing a medical at Norwich & due to sign

sunnynorwich

(14)
(3)

Hes actually a good player, similar ability to clint hill at qpr, not so much a name to be proud of, but a player that will do his job well

(6)
(5)

Cuellar is a quality player, make bassong look like mr doubtfire, but then again, who doensnt, anyone heard anything about that waste of oxygen??

(2)
(2)

10m for fer, great bit of buisness!!

(4)
(2)

The Players we had last time we got promotion were young and still hungry: Vokes, Lansbury, Jackson, Pacheco etc. The players that take you down are the ones at the end of their career, have no loyalty whatsoever and are just here for a final paycheck. I'm surprised that the board are allowing people like Fer to leave. If we don't need the money, why sell? I thought the policy was always to strengthen the squad! I think McNally has too much of a stranglehold at the club, and needs to be taken down a peg or two!

(5)
(8)

How many free transfers are we going to sign?? We need hungry quality players not journey men picking up there wages. This is very worrying

(4)
(4)

^^ Vokes, Lansbury and Pacheco were on loan last time we got promotion. Their main loyalties were to themselves so they appeared in the 'shop window' to further enhance their own careers. Football is big business at the end of the day and no club is going to refuse an offer they deem to be acceptable, even the top 5 UK teams

(7)
(1)

Norwich fans should never believe what comes out of the mouth of neil adams. yesterday he stated fer was going to play tonight today he's had a medical and about to sign for q p r for a reported 8million not worth half of that. he must have known this was happening so why lie to use fans, its the same old money grabbing norwich can't refuse money bugger what the fans think.

(1)
(6)

The above post is absolutely right, football is a buisness, 10m for 1 man has to be snapped up, if we are to be in the championship for any length of time we will need the dollars, the club surely comes first?!

(4)
(2)

If the rumours are true that the fee for Leroy Fer to QPR is £8M + add on's +20% sell on, then McNally needs to be applauded getting almost double what we paid for him.
I am troubled by all the negative comments from so called NCFC supporters, first and foremost NCFC has to pay its own way, we don't have a billionaire to fund stupid fees, Signing go pros is good business for the championship a short term deal for free agent Cueller brings grit and Height to a back line that lacks both, Martin should be playing right back or on the bench, he is not in my opinion a real CH, he was responsible for wolves goal under the ball and rarely challenges for the high crosses.
Jerome would add experience, height and strength at this level and at the reported £1. 5M looks a good buy.

The right players for the championship are not the same players you would expect to excel in the premiership, first job is to get a grip on the slide, then push on and try to get into top six and hopefully go on and cement a top two place, the squad we have is as good as any in the league, so its more than possible but its down to the players and management to show the desire to make it happen this season.

Cuellar is a great player, how can any of you complain about him when we have people like bassong and rvw bleeding us dry??

Adams never said he was going to play. he said he was in the squad. who cares if he leaves, johnson and tettey showing they are more than capable

Norwich after 2 million camerone jerome and oliver norwood, hardly the most exciting news

(9)
(7)

Fer going so being replaced by some low cost alternative.
Hooper going and being replaced by the prolific goal scorer Jerome ( not )
The only way is down.
I feel a bit sorry for Adams as I think it is the board calling all the shots as they prepare for another long stint in the championship.

(9)
(12)

Jerome could probably do a decent job at Championship level, although I thought both Lafferty and Grabban looked pretty good on Saturday. If we keep Hooper do we need another striker, particularly as we have Loza, etc? I presume Becchio will finally leave as well. I have never heard of Oliver Norwood.

(10)
(0)

I hooe it's beginning to sink in with everyone that Delia and the gang are selling high and buying dross. Cuellar? Jerome? Hardly two names that will strike fear into any chumpionship team! Our board lead by the Lowestoft two seem to think we can get out of the chumpionship spending nothing again! The only reason we did before was done to our great management team lead by Lambert. Something we definitely don't have this time around.

(7)
(11)

Squad looks much stronger than the one we went up with last time. Good win on Saturday. Quit moaning about the team already. At least give it 5 games!

(10)
(3)

It's not moaning about the team it's more the board and what's going on. I feel sorry for Neil Adams it looks like he didn't want RVW or snodgrass to go and he doesn't want Fer leaving. The players we are bringing in and be in linked with are not good enough replacements apart from lafferty

(2)
(5)

Just remember, we are a Championship club now, some fans just won't be happy unless we bought Ronaldo & Bale, get real and get behind your team for got sake, & stop the doom & gloom, we have a good squad

(7)
(3)

Cuellar, good signing, the best so far I think, adams out!!!

(2)
(5)

I think we all know we are in the championship but look at what other chapionship clubs have been doing. 12m on a striker and Cardiff have been getting some good players. It's not doom and gloom it's just some fans wouldn't question anything and still keep paying the high season ticket prices

Norwood moving to Reading according to SSN.

Rumours of Luciano Becchio going to Preston NE on loan. Plenty of striker cover & he needs games so it could make sense?

sunnynorwich

(14)
(1)

I think some people need to be a bit more realistic. We aren't in the PL now. We might have plenty of money to throw around, but the best players out there will have the option to join one of the lesser PL sides. Most teams in our league would be quite happy with Cuellar and Jerome. I saw lots of people moaning about the signings of Grabban and Laffety, but they suddenly don't look so bad.
Jerome might not be Aguero, but for a Championship club, you're not going to get a much better strike force than Hooper, Grabban, Laffetty and Jerome.
Have some perspective. How many players worth more than 2 or 3 mil are going to go to a Championship side rather than a PL side?

Anyone heard any rumours about Bassong? Is it true he has refused to play for the club again!

(2)

Yes it is

(1)
(3)

Hope so, waste of space

(9)
(4)

He's waiting to see where daddy Hughton will get a job and then be off

(4)
(3)

Shame if true he's a good player when he wants. Not very professional so out with the old and in with the new!

(6)
(2)

Im sure he refused that at the start of last season!!! he's one of the worst centre backs I've ever seen, he either hoofs or misses the hoof, no loss, boot him out!!!

Look like a leaving wave at end of game

(6)

We'd better have some quality replacements lined up especially if Surman goes as well, we'd being suddenly looking very light in depth of the squad

(5)
(2)

No loyalty yes he want premier league football but he could least give us 1 season and get us back there same old norwich selling club and they said we don't have to sell best players lol pilks, fer, snodgrass all gone Redmond could follow we need sign 3 more players commons would get great proven goal scorer

Neil Adams prepared to pay 4m

Is this a replacement for Pilkington?

Why let pilkinton go so cheap even if he is injury prone

(21)
(3)

Its because Adams is set to unveil a loan / permanent winger as his 4th signing. Probably Scott Sinclair. Pilks clearly had too much to say and honestly I think he is replaceable (out with the old)

(6)
(12)

Scott Sinclair signed for westbrom so can't be him try again we will sell and get no one in just like Snodgrass where is that money gone not used it yet

(12)
(6)

Pilkington is a good player when he is fit, which unfortunately for both him and NCFC wasn't often enough.

Norwich now have a lot of money in the bank and clubs know it, so they will be asking stupid and over inflated prices for players. This might change as we get closer to the closing of the transfer window, but don't be surprised if we don't do anymore permanent business before Christmas.

(14)
(0)

Scott Sinclair was only loaned to West Brom, he's a Man City player. Not used the money? How about Grabban and Lafferty, from reports it was almost exactly the same amounts. Also, rumoured to only be getting £1m for Pilks so can't do much with that, apart from maybe a loan.

(11)
(2)

If you look properly we acually signed Kyle Lafferty on 27th june and lewis grabban on 5th june. snodgrass signed for hull on 30th june so get your facts right we sold snodgrass after already buying them both so his money was not involved guess again

(8)
(2)

Can someone tell me what good back ups we have left for a winger now pilk and snod gone if someone gets injured were stuck

(8)
(1)

Anyone noticed that if pilks leaves we only have e bennett and redmond as known wingers 2 that's it

(3)
(5)

Nathan can play left wing (where he should be instead of through the middle. ) and maybe one of the Murphy twins can as well? Of course Surman can play there as well.

(5)
(4)

Don't forget the Murphy twins.

(6)
(6)

Nathan can play there! The sooner Redmond and Surman go the better. We then may stand a chance of winning a game in the chumpionship Otbc

(5)
(7)

Cant really blame pilks for wanting to leave a sinking ship, never have been convinced by adams, he's very dull, where are these signings?? 2 very average strikers is all!!! adams out!!

(6)
(8)

SCOT SINCLAIR!!!! do me a favour pal!! not a chance. Another master stroke from boring adams, let's let our players leave for a rival, marvelous, he's had forever to sign players yet here we are already started the season and he's bought lower division mediocraty in the hope that they can achieve promotion, no chance, we looked dreadful at wolves!! adams out!!!!!!!!

(8)
(13)

It saddens me to watch a good squad being dismantled by an unproven manager, I don't believe any of this bodes well for the future of ncfc, i'm getting ready for years of championship football, however, I love norwich and would support them in the conference, let's get past the adams era asap though PLEASE

(6)
(3)

Let's hope we stay in the championship. Seconed game of the season and it's a must win game for Adams, that's lot pressure add to that if reports are correct a players rebellion ie the sale of pilkington and other players wanting to leave. A few people can't believe the natives restless. Adams could comand the respect of the youth team, but is seriously out of his depth with our senior squad. Blame the board , no successful business would give there top job to man of his inexperience. It looks more an more like no one would touch it under the codictions Adams have.

roey 61

(6)
(1)

It may well be that McNally wanted total control of the club, hence putting Adams in charge a novice at this level.
Neil Lennon or Malky McKay would not have signed up to the present set up. Both would have been much better choices.
I also suspect that Adams does not have the pulling power to attract the better players, so we may struggle to get the best loan players out there from premier clubs.
I have real concerns for NCFC this season, If McNally has learnt anything from last year, don't wait too long to act if the first 6 games go badly, the right man could still put it right, wait too long and the chance will have gone for this year.

(8)
(4)

Anyone who watched even a single game from last year will know Redmond cannot play left wing and that definitely isn't where he should be playing. He can only play right effectively so this leaves us with no left wingers other than Josh murphy.

(7)
(2)

Last January we bid 8.5m for Ranocchia of inter (who turned us down) we sold snodders for 8m the wolf for 7m pilks will go for 2m plus what ever our budget is this year. We should have around 25 m. The squad took a 50% pay cut. Where's the money now and what crap players we have brought in.

(6)
(8)

I think that the messages coming from Carra Rd are all wrong. Here we are with a manager who is almost pleading in his reports that we haven't had enough dosh offered for our key players. What is wrong with simply saying that they are not for sale - or doing the next thing and saying that X & Y are available, but hands off the rest?

While it appears that the whole squad is up for sale, irrespective of individual declarations of loyalty, what is the activity viz, incomers? - We hear that Cardiff have brought in 8 newbies, including our Pilks. Remember that Lambert approach of having his new squad in place within a couple of weeks of the end of the season, so you had the whole of the summer to integrate.

I just don't see that there is anything like a firm grip on the club at the moment.

(6)
(1)

We need to play Redmond Right Wing and Josh Murphy Left Wing and just get on with it. No more cutting in BS we need to get crosses into the box and get the new big man to stick a nut on it a la Holt. That is how to get promoted from this league. We do need cover on the left Wing and a proper CB. Let's not hear excuses as to why we lost to newly promoted Wolves yes we did have a player sent off but we should have been ahead by 60 minutes but weren't because we turned the ball over too easily and because a diamond mid is easily over run with a 5 man mid or just a high press. Every time we play this pattern the opposition will negate it easily and as we are recently demoted Prem they will consider a point from us to be good value. A diamond mid looks pretty against week opposition but against muscular teams teams who press high up and who stuff the midfield it is a recipe for losing control of the game even against technically inferior opponents.

(5)
(1)

What we need to do is get rid of adams, he is auwful, squad getting worse by the day, players being replaced by lower league rubbish, adams looks like a frightened teenager on tv, he is ruining the team, am I alone in my thoughts???

(3)
(4)

Replaced by lower league rubbish? where were you when Lambert signed Bennett and Pilks, both of were star players when we first got promoted.

(3)
(2)

Lafferty, grabban and o'neill all championship material. if that's lower league rubbish in your eyes then you're probably deluded. we're not going to sign premier players in this league, give him a chance, we would have beaten wolves with 11 men.

(7)
(3)

The squads getting worse by the day, how do you figure that one out? Dead wood has been removed, we still have the bulk of last seasons squad, you don't become a bad player over the course of the summer break, the problem is tactics that we should be using, make teams fear us by being on the attack not thinking these lot are here for the taking, need to step it up a notch

(4)
(3)

Yes, lower league rubbish, mark my words, lafferty is not a good player, I've watched him in italy, he is lower league rubbish, grabban would have gone to premier league club if he was top dollar, he's not, he's a lower league player, adams is uninspirational, boring and unable to attract quality here full stop, get rid and get pulis!!!

(2)
(11)

Lafferty not a good player? Still thinking that after todays performance?

(7)
(2)

Yes, keep watching, one game and people think we are going up, watford were terrible, I hope i'm proved wrong but I have a bad feeling, fer now on way, no sign of anyone coming in, lambert had all siginings in and settled by now, good players will not be interested in playing for adams!

(1)
(7)

We lose a game and people moan, we win a game and people moan! We are 2 games into the season, let's see where we are after ten. Some people are never happy.

Must be a reason why Pilks has gone so cheaply. He's injury prone that's what because £1 million is nothing for a player of his quality. I'm sure the medical team know this and have 'advised' NA to get rid. Not sure that selling to a rival is a good move though IMO. COYY.

(9)
(5)

I think a lot of players were waiting to see what we did in the transfer market before making a decision on whether or not they stay or go. I've got to admit i'm underwhelmed, we still need bursting pace in the team, A goalscoring midfielder, and a creative player, anthony knockaert type, We also need an additional CB, and I personally think a decent young right back

(5)
(1)

1 year left on his deal and he doesn't want another. We have several players who can play wide left and he hasn't been a force since Lambert left. Good bit if business in my opinion.

(9)
(3)

Another injury prone player we all know about. Robin Van Persie. He spent almost two seasons at Arsenal having treatment. Demba Ba was one too and so too was Frazier Campbell.

Being injury prone is sometimes an excuse for a manager to sell a player (obviously not the case with Van Persie).

Everyone always cites Darren Anderton but Pilkington has played 82 games for Norwich scoring 12 times.

It's funny how these so called injured players always seem to be able to pass a medical when they move to a new club.

What is going on at Norwich. Pilks is a good player. Why sell him for just 1 m to a rival club.

(7)
(3)

Selling Pilks to a rival is madness. Redmond looked very lightweight on Sunday he always cuts in and is easy to defend against being so predictable - plus he can't cross the ball- firstly because he cuts in so much and secondly because he gets muscled off it too easily. Surman gives the ball away in stupid needless ways even when not under pressure why is he playing? We need Pilkington as he gives us a different dynamic. Look at Redmond's end product- for all the fancy stuff where are the goals and assists? Pilkington does actually know what a bye line is and how to get to one plus he can score goals. So far this manager is a failure.

(7)
(1)

Ncfc are mad. They should never of employed Neil Adams as manager. Neil Lennon was the chap who has pedigree and is well respected. He knows how to get the best out of players. Get him now before we end up in league 1 again! We will be lucky to stay up from what I watch on Sunday, therefore at best get used to another long spell in the Championship.

(5)
(5)

I think Neil Adams will have 10 games to deliver the required change of fortunes before the club do a Gunny and go back into the market. Neil Lennon doesn't seem to want to get back into management at the moment but who knows down the line if NA can't get the response needed from the players who undoubtedly have the ability to play well as they did for two three seasons to get themselves out of the Championship at the first time of asking and remain in the Premier League for two good seasons.

Need midfielders that can pass a ball as it stands city do not have a midfielder that can score more then 3 goals a season if you buy a midfielder that can shoot and score more then 6 a season you mite get somewhere.

(7)

According to the net pilkington being sold to a rival Cardiff. wants to be a silly price. Aa it stands on first reports this is ludicrous. We still have not replaced Snodgrass.

Didn't go to WW but listening on the radio was a bit of the old déjà vu from the last 2 seasons. I like NA and want him to succeed as the manager but the team seem to be missing leadership. We're a goal down with less than 2 minutes of play left so they have to hoof the ball into the box and hope that someone will get on the end of it. Why were they faffing about? We need a leader. A Duncan Forbes or a Grant Holt type character. Kyle Lafferty looks a handfull. I hope he gets a chance Saturday. Get Gary Hooper and Leroy back and hopefully we'll get the win against Watford. COYY

I think we need a couple of good players and spend at least 8 m but can't see them doing it

Norwich are going to gain promotion trust me! We have the quality needed! The wolves game is a fine example! Norwich just did not turn up on the day and yet if grabben had of buried a couple of his chances we would have had the game sealed! That proves that it's possible for us to win matches even when we don't play well! We were just unlucky in the end! Maybe when a few more key players are fit and a slight change of formation and who plays where can make the difference!

(5)
(13)

I think we would stand a much better chance if we payed players in their correct positions. Sour man and Elliot Bennett are wide men. Not cm. and redderz is not a striker!

(12)
(2)

Agree, NR does not have the composure to be a forward. Get him back on the wing and put KL there instead. It was clear though that a 442 diamond can't work against fast wingers -- a quick rejig to a 4231 would have been better, thus keep the FBs as FBs and not WBs.

(1)

Anyone think we should compete with Boro and wolves for Patrick bamford?

(6)
(3)

Would anyone take Grant Holt back?

(7)
(10)

Neil Adams 1-18 points. Him and his back room team, are so far out of there depth, I think that was proven on Sunday they lacked leader ship and direction. He had obviously not done his home work, to be ransacked by there wide players like that. Good job Wolves weren't that good if not the damage would have been greater.

(14)

There are a lot of good managers out there that post on here, so why on earth didn't one or all of you apply for the job, I suspect the reason is that none of you are up to it so stick wth your day jobs and get behind the team and the manager at least he was brave enough to yame it so COYY

(6)
(10)

One game and it's all doom and gloom. We lost our first game against Watford last time we were in the Championship, and let's face it, Wolves away, just isn't a fixture we ever do well in. We have a big enough squad of decent quality players to be able to find the right combination in this league and do very well. Stick with it guys and have a bit of faith in NA. There's no way that Hughton would have gone three at the back last season for instance. Not a great result, but both the previous times we've lost the first game in league one and the Championship, we've got promotion!

Adams is a dull dreary appointment of a manager, he will put up with the stick because he will have to!!

We will get turned over by Watford. by the same guy who predicted Wolves would turn us over. We are pathetic! haha

Please Mr Adams I have 540 mile round trip this Saturday to watch NCFC against Watford can u make sure we turn up and play!

Mr Adams
You promise attacking football!
I watched a team get out played by a div 1 team!

Sort it out quick!

Tazdevil (North Canary)

Not going to travel to watch that s***e!

(14)
(2)

I watched a larger club that was recently in the premier league beat a smaller one that spent a couple of seasons in the prem.

(5)
(4)

Just like we knew it would be. Adams out,,,,

(8)
(5)

Can anyone explain to me how that performance was any different from last season? Not one player looked likely to cause WW any problems, still can't create any chances, (one shot on target) sorry Neil I do really think you are out of your depth and by taking this job you will be hounded and go from everything good about NCFC to villain, but it's not your fault it's simply our players are not good enough

(8)
(5)

City wre an absolute disgrace, attacking football my a. , rubbish. uninspiring, dull, dross, fittingly, those 3 words totally describe our manager aswell, he was picking the good points out of loosing to a recently div 1 side, the writting is on the wall, I've said it all along, how long do the board leave it until they get rid, 5 games to go????

(9)
(6)

At lest hughton can win games😂😂 hughton is an experienced championship manager, let's sack him when we are nearly, definitely going down says the board. let's hire an old boy of our club with passion they say, million times worst then hughton they never said.

(14)
(6)

Anyone would think we got pumped 4 or 5 nil. the people on here make me almost as ashamed as the racist fans that went to wolves.

(8)
(6)

45 games to go 👏 you're all acting like we have already been relegated

(7)
(6)

If we play like that for the next 45 games we will be relegated////////

(11)
(3)

I'm a wolves fan all this the smaller club rubbish u fans don't know what you talking about yeah norwich may have been in the prem longer but there probably one season u deserved to be there you got beaten by the better team coming from the prem and think your going to walk the championship good luck you will get relegated it's going to take you at least 5/6 games before you start doing anything

(5)
(5)

You don't stay in the prem without deserving it pal, we have been on the slide for a while now as the board and management have been crap, its nothing against wolves but with our team/squad we should not be getting out played by a team who were in div 1 last year, you did deserve to win, no arguments there!!

Oh dear same old same old where do I start, wrong system should have matched them up how in hells name can you defend against two wingers with such a narrow midfield also physically too lightweight in midfield, Grabban must be wondering like strikers before him what the hell have I let myself in for no chances created isolated just like under Hughton so much for playing the Norwich way, as for Olsson useless, Whittaker useless I could go on and on but rant over.

(8)
(3)

We've not won an opening game for 11 years or something like that

(6)
(1)

We need some backbone, passion, grit determination. Same old story, fans just have to soak it up until someone grows a pair and gives these highly paid average championship players a swift lesson in priorities. let the pre madonnas go we need players who will stand tall and play.

Am I correct in saying it is £35 a ticket for saturdays gane against watford or was I seeing something. can anyone tell me the price grades as It won't seem to download from the site thanks. if that is the cost then it will be up the linnets for me this season not surprised the first 3 home games ain't sold out yet scandalous prices.

(2)
(0)

We'll Neil that was entertaining. could rant on as above post, who is 100 per cent right and to add to it why play that system away from home with three players who have not got a tackle between them ( Surmen Martin Hoolahan ) the same type of team as last year, we will nick a win if we can, not a team that went to win the game. Two more games like that and the serious decisions to make 1 point out of 18 and counting.

roey 61

For once I totally agree with the points in the above posts, couldn't believe how the team was set up, it was lucky they were s**t or we would have been shafted. We seriously lack quality in the middle of the park, we are totally incapable for passing a ball 10 yards

(7)
(0)

Until we sign a pacey winger who can cross a ball, sign a centre half who can reach a cross and not be turned and sign a creative midfielder we will not score the goals promised and continue to leak at the back. Further, we need to ditch the concept of the "popular captain" and appoint someone who can shout, scream etc orders to the rest of our sloppy defenders and slow midfielders, who also cannot pass a ball. If I could remember how to cry I would - whatever happened to the team of legends?

Last season Norwich sign a shed load of players and everyone got excited that we would be a top 10 team. The players never settled and we ended up getting relegated.

This season there hasn't been the same turn over of players, only two Houghton signings leaving.

We have a settled squad, players seem happy and Ryan Bennett and other have said there is good team spirit.

Always established squads do better.

Can't keep everyone happy.

(17)
(6)

Wes and Ryan Bennet Signing its like buying two new players.

Surman is back just need him to sign a new contract as well.

(16)
(14)

We shouldn't be pinning our hopes on surman we should bring in a top player we have the cash

Rumour going about that Gary Hooper was spotted on crutches when some of the players went to the cinema last night. Not got any proof, but hope this isn't the case.

(7)
(10)

Yeah, that's correct I'm afraid, he is on crutches

(4)
(5)

So loaning out RVW seems like a 'brilliant' call after all. Cheers adams and god of footy unjuries. don't like hooper but god, why does our players always got injured?

(3)
(6)

So the fact we have grabban lafferty and loza still means it's stupid? And redmond can play striker if need be!

(5)
(3)

What about becchio? If he plays he will get goals in the championship.

(5)
(1)

That so called bigger team had about 17,000 fans watching them in league one for most of the season and only had 22, 500 on Sunday, in a 30,000 + stadium. I think you must be looking at some dated historical evidence, but this is the here and now and Norwich City, with the players we currently have are a far bigger fish than Wolves. When we played Watford in our first game back in the Championship, which was also televised, the ground was sold out. Let's get rid of the pessimism (or Hughton mind-set) and start to believe that this club and the support it gets is as good as anything in this league and beyond!

i see the board are standing by their policy of buying young hungry players in their early 20's who desperately want to play by signing oneil! oops he's a 31yo, i'm worried we will struggle this year and anyone who think with the CURRENT squad we will get back in the premiership had better stop fantasizing right now. i'm hoping pilks will play more this season though as he is quality if fit and firing. and PLEASE I BEG YOU replace turner, he makes way too many mistakes. I think another striker, a holding central midfielder and 2 defenders are needed to try and get a top 6 finish. so 2nd time, what happened to the extra seating we were supposed to be getting? anyone know? (nuff said)

(8)
(17)

We pick up a quality championship player on a free transfer who has played in the premier league and last season promotion team and you complain. Turner made mistakes ax did everyone last season. He is without doubt a very good defender for this level. Oh and I am very excited about the young talent on offer. Week before a long season, let's get behind our team OTBC!

(18)
(6)

You can't just have young players in the squad, think the squad at the moment has a good balance. The major thing we lacked last year, apart from goals, was any leadership. You need some experienced heads in there and Gary O'Neil certainly is that.

Also by the sounds of it Pilks is off to Bolton in a swap deal with Lee Chung-yong so he won't be featuring this season.

(9)

Turner is decent, we were bad allover the pitch last season

First game of the season is looming. I bet we score at least 3 but I think we'll concede 2. I'm betting on it. COYY.

(7)
(7)

Wolves will beat us as they will be more hungry for it. Don't think many of the squad respect Neil Adams.

(4)
(10)

What an absolutely ridiculous comment! First of all, you have no idea what individual players feelings are towards the coach (pure speculation) and secondly, I doubt if you have any insight into Wolves so called hunger. Enjoy the game! Relax! Try not to wind yourself up too much, we haven't even kicked a ball yet!!

Does anyone else find it worrying that we are not spending money on transfers? Surely we should be sending out a statement to the rest of the league?

Fer will defo be joining Southampton and hooper will go to qpr

(7)
(15)

I can see fer going but selling hooper will leave us with just 2 strikers, we need a least 4 in this division.
Maybe loza? But we are still 1 short anyone in the pipe line?


Tazdevil

(6)
(3)

I think we are sending out a statement to the rest of the championship, and that is "nothing to worry about" from NCFC

(7)
(5)

Not Selling player is just as good of buying players replace ones sold. Only two players have left and we have signed three.

I can see Redmond playing a more central role than one on the wing. Pilkington can also score.

No need to panic. As many of the website say we have the best squad in the Championship, now let's hope the players prove it.

(9)
(4)

Have you seen what Leeds are doing

(1)
(1)

No I'm not concerned atm it's more about keeping redderz, hooper and olsson for me. If qpr want to spend big on fer then let them.

(6)
(1)

I agree that not selling players is just as good as signing new ones, but that's just it. I think we WILL sell players. And therein lies the problem. I will be very surprised if our squad come the end of the transfer window contains some of the names we hope it will. And that's an issue if we then don't buy some quality players.

Tony Fernandes now following Fer on twitter.

(5)
(2)

I'd like to see QPR not getting their way but also to see them spend all their money and fail again! Catch 22 but also, do we need Leroy? Howson, Hoolahan, O'Neil, Johnson, Tettey, Surman, McGeehan etc. can all play in the centre of the park.

(7)
(4)

Has anyone asked themselves whether Fer would want to go to QPR? Probably a club destined to struggle in the lower reaches of the Prem, and will be lucky to survive. They barely scrapped in - the play-off should have been won by Derby.

I also follow fer and other members of the norwich team does that mean they will be joining my sunday league team
