Re: Match thread - Norwich V NUFC

Nobody has looked good today except maybe Dubravka and perhaps Hayden. Bring on Willems and Longstaff at half time for Ki and Shelvey, switch to a 3-4-3 (Ritchie in the 3 with Joelinton and Almiron) and actually play some football. Almiron and Joelinton both look hopelessly isolated right now, and w...

Re: Match day thread - NUFC V Arsenal

IMO big overreaction to the game yesterday. Front line isn’t quite there yet but showed promise (Joelinton’s touch and hold up play esp, and also Miggy’ running in the first half); we lost shape when we took off our best to CMs, which presumably we won’t do again; and we conceded the one time we rea...

Re: Weekend Football 9th - 11th August

Villa look a little soft-centred... As soon as they weren’t playing fully defensively, they were exploited so frequently in the middle.

Re: Boycott

Also Mike Ashley is making no money from NUFC. He’s getting cheap advertising for SD but otherwise we’ve been run to break even for years, and financed when we’re in the Championship. And the majority of our revenue comes from TV and sponsorship not fans.

Re: Squads oot

Personally would have left one of Darlow/Elliot our and brought Aarons in, but it’s a risky move so overall I’m happy with that This. Guess.. Aarons living the nice cushy life though.. hey I would love to be in his position. Literally getting paid grands a week for doing s*** all. Can't get better ...

Definitely worth a punt. 1 or 2 year deal, low basic wage with high appearance fee, prove his fitness.

We played 4 full backs and conceded four goals all of which were headers or assisted by headers. Should've played Shola at CB.
Not just 4 full backs - 4 right backs! <awe>

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2019)

Marrony - the 20yo Brazilian striker we were linked with earlier in the summer for a £30m move, and who shares an agent with Joelinton and Allan Saint Maximin - was asked today which Premier League club he follows. His response: “Newcastle”.

McCarthy has gone to Palace
Palace have replaced their best young player with 4 over 28... and an average squad age of 28 already.

Especially if they sell Zaha, I think they’re going to be in real trouble this year.

Re: Emil Krafth to sign?

He doesn’t even have a decent YouTube reel. I’m not sure what he adds above Yedlin and Manquillo, honestly. But our general recruitment strategy this summer seems to be signing players who don’t have great records (Joelinton and Saint Maximin both have questionable goals/assists) so I wonder if it’...
