  1. Disappointed with the decision but I can't say I'm surprised in the slightest. There almost certainly isn't time for any new incoming manager, permanent or temporary, to use the January transfer window, which leaves all hope resting on whoever is brought in to sharpen up the existing squad. I don't really have an opinion on Tuchel but I think the fact that any noteworthy manager is prepared to take on the poisoned chalice is enough to be satisfied with.
  2. An interesting read about why Premier League (or any other) clubs probably shouldn't sack managers half way through a season. https://www.sologic.com/en-us/resources/blog/which-boss-are-you-premier-league-or-nfl
  3. Danny Drinkwater is also b̶e̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶e̶x̶i̶l̶e̶d̶ going to Turkey, joining mid-table Kasimpasa on loan for the rest of the season. https://www.chelseafc.com/en/news/2021/01/18/drinkwater-departs-on-loan
  4. Steve Bruce is the Perennially Shit ManagerTM above all others that surprises me in not having managed Norwich, given his time here as a player. The thought occurred to me that he may just not have been available at any point when Norwich had a vacancy, but the opportunities were right there in 2000 and 2012; he literally signed with Hull one day after Chris Hughton replaced Paul Lambert.
  5. Agreed, players contracts typically last for 2-5 years so that's more than enough buffer for them to decide "do I want to keep doing this?", before re-signing if they do or leaving on a free if they don't.
  6. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed III would be great because I also really enjoyed Star Wars Bounty Hunter, a Boba Fett or Mandalorian-based sequel, or even a flat out remake, for that would be grand.
  7. I would actually do the opposite of the typical FM move there and keep Aubameyang for as long as possible. He's a proven goalscorer and can hopefully maintain a sense of continuity as the rest of the team is rebuilt; Jamie Vardy has shown that a veteran striker can still deliver in the Premier League and Arsenal don't want to go the Chelsea route of bringing in a young/peak star striker for silly money, just for them to underperform and find themselves stuck in this rut.
  8. I think every MLS team should be owned by a former Man Utd and/or Real Madrid player. Get Ruud van Nistelrooy in on this, Cristiano Ronaldo too when he's finally finished tearing up Serie A.
  9. Is it not a natural thing to happen when there's only one team with a city's name in the context of discussion, i.e. Premier League football? Norwich United are a thing, albeit in the 9th tier, but Norwich seems to be near-universal parlance for the (much) larger Norwich City. I know that's an extreme example but does the same thing not happen with the Bristols and Nottinghams on occasion, or Man Utd when Man City were dipping into lower leagues? It's totally understandable to use the full name for clarity when United and Wednesday are in the same league. I could also see Wednesday s
  10. Similarly, I find it surprising that none of these managers have come to Norwich. Equally I wouldn't be able to identify the last two Norwich managers (Neil Adams and Alex Neil) out of a lineup if I tried.
  11. ¿Qué opinas de la peatonalización del centro de la ciudad de Norwich?
  12. I'll echo the Houllier era and Hyypia/Dudek love, if I had to pick a favourite Liverpool player it'd be one of those two.
  13. That's a fair point, I just don't see him ever recouping the amount we paid for him. I can see him returning to Spain or going to China/Turkey too, perhaps PSG as a long term replacement for Keylor Navas.
  14. I would quite like to ship out Kepa, Rudiger, and one of Emerson or Marcos Alonso permanently. Gilmour and Tomori could probably benefit from loans but the prospect of injuries piling up in the next month or so, and in the final run in, would make me hesitate on that. Not sure anyone needs to be brought in; I'd rather wait until the summer and think about finding a new backup keeper and deciding whether Thiago Silva and Giroud have another good season in them.
  15. I'm not sure if it counts as "don't involve your team" - I don't actively support Norwich but naturally have an affinity for them on account of being born and raised here - but the Delia Smith "Let's be 'avin you" moment stands the test of time. Also the hype around Norwich beating Man Utd in 2005 (and again, to a lesser extent, in 2012 and 2015) was great. Greece winning Euro 2004, the miracle of Istanbul, and South Korea beating Germany at the 2018 World Cup are up there. In terms of all-time though, it has to be this:
