Injured Norwich City striker Gary Hooper and midfielder Jonny Howson will again miss out for this weekend’s Championship home game against Watford.

To send a link to this page to a friend, you must be logged in.

City boss Neil Adams revealed at Colney on Thursday afternoon both Hooper (calf) and Howson (knee) are not in his plans for the Hornets’ visit.

Adams also confirmed Anthony Pilkington is in transfer talks with another club – with Cardiff City counterpart Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealing earlier in the day he is hoping to tie up a deal for the midfielder who has reportedly underwent a medical and discussed personal terms after City accepted a bid.

“There is interest in him. A lot of interest so, yes, I can confirm there is interest from another club,” said Adams. “The same with a number of our players, but that is where we are at this moment in time. An offer has been made and if it is deemed acceptable to the club then we will deal with it in the appropriate manner.”

Midfielder Leroy Fer has been regularly linked with a summer exit, but Adams reiterated there have been no acceptable bids for him or Nathan Redmond. Fer returned to training at the start of last week after his extended break, but Adams will monitor his fitness before deciding whether he will be involved this weekend.

“If he is fit enough he will come into my thoughts,” he said. “He is training with us. Leroy is a fantastic player but is playing catch up. Of course you would want a player like that involved if he is fit. It’s important we are right with him. If we feel he is available to us this weekend then he will be involved.

“Gary is not going to make it, unfortunately. The calf injury is getting better but not for this weekend. The Blackburn game next week is an on-going assessment and fingers crossed for us on that one. Jonny is in the same boat. They are two key players you would want around the XI but not for this weekend. Jonny has had the scans and is making progress but I don’t want to put a timeline on it; hopefully sooner rather than later. The main thing for me is that we get him fit as quickly as possible. The rest have trained well today so no other significant problems, just some bumps and bruises. Gary O’Neil is back, he has trained and he is fit, ready and available.”

  • Get rid of McNally?, if it were not for Mr McNally we could quite possibly be playing conference league right now. He has only one vote on the board, I suggest you might need to look at others on the board if you want to lay the blame anywhere!. Sentimental feelings and business does not mix, but it still remains a significant factor in the decision making process of the board, hence the catolog of errors that the club has made over managers over the years. Delia and Michael have saved this club probably more times that we will ever know but the fact is we now need Directors with the experience and strength of character to support McNally.

  • The motor started spluttering at least 12 months ago, with some indications that there were problems a lot earlier. The car has been in the garage for the last four months and has been rebuilt but is still failing to start. The whole footballing committee thing that David McNally has set up requires a first team manager who plays as part of that team. Cult of personality managers like Tony Pulis will not work in a system like that. Pulis left Crystal Palace because he could not work with the Co-Chairman Steve Parish and wanted much more autonomy. He will not get that under the new committee system at Norwich. Pulis' success at Palace was based on his own personal drive. What was surprising was that rather than his rotten route-one thug-football at Stoke, he immediately adapted to Palaces' squad and desire to play a passing game. He also leads a high level of fitness by his own example. Palace fans absolutely worship him, giving them an amazing escape to an 11th place finish last year. Pulis or any powerful individual is going to find the new system too restricting. What we need at the moment is someone who can get the players really motivated but forget about bringing in one of these larger than life managers. I can't see anything changing in the near future. Here's hoping that the engine finally starts before we have set off down the A140.

  • Dubai Canary – a succinct analogy on the situation at hand. Unfortunately I fear we are the harbingers of our own demise due to as you have highlighted,” So as a business we are financially OK, but as a football club we are in deep mire.”, part of the financial strength is the number of season tickets sold (us) and income exceeding expenditure in the transfer market. We have known for sometime that the Holy Grail was not the PL but financial security and no debt, which from my understanding has been achieved. To sustain this financial position the board can either elect to speculate and invest heavily to return the club to the PL or ensure that the cut their cloth to fit their means and from the recent transfer activity I suspect the latter is the case. As I stated below I hope my pessimism is proved to be a false dawn but I fear that we are as you stated heading for tough years. Yes they smell the coffee but for them it smells sweet, as it is the healthy bank account they smell. I will still support the team, albeit from afar, and try to get more than the three games in I managed last season to get some return on my season ticket. If we get 9 points out of the next 3 games then I will be one of or even the happiest NCFC supporter here in Indonesia and I will apologize for my pessimism and negativity so far expressed; just need to find a humble pie shop here in that case.

  • The technical indicator of a recession is two consecutive quarters of negative economic growth as measured by a country's gross domestic product (GDP). A recession generally lasts from six to 18 months. Now if we try and relate these performance dynamics to the case of our football club, it would be fair to say that we have been in recession for the past 6 to 18 months. People talk about the Lambert era as a great period for the club - it was - but he ran out on us and started the decline, so maybe he is somewhat culpable for raising our hopes, then dashing them. The CH era started off OK and the first season was a respectable finish - and then - disaster struck ! I'd say City have been in recession for about 12 months now, but, the situation we find ourselves in is most worrying. A largely inept board, who whilst they go through the motions and are no doubt successful business people, are delusional if they think the club is being run properly. Success of a club is a fine balance of getting the books right and having success on the pitch. There is no doubt that they have the business side doing well, but the football side is literally falling apart. The appointment of NA was, in my opinion a huge mistake and a cop out. City spent several weeks looking for a manager, then came back to NA. I can't blame NA for taking the job, but after all that palaver he should have told them were to put the job. So as a business we are financially OK, but as a football club we are in deep mire. Part of solving a problem is recognizing there is a problem in the first place. If the custodians of the club can't see that we needed a proper and experienced manager NOW then the decline will continue. If City fail to take the Chump by storm this season - which I have to say now looks pretty likely - then we are headed for a tough few years ahead. Wake up and smell the coffee !!

  • On the Pulis matter, the board had the choice of trying to get him before he went to CP and they decided to stick with CH at a time when he, CH, was shown not to be the man for the job. I cannot see them now thinking of going for Pulis, unless we suffer at the hands of Watford. I also think the board has lost the drive they had when they brought Lambert in. The other side of the equation is would Pulis come here, when we were in the PL maybe he would have but I suspect, as has been stated, he will not come due to the Scottish syndrome i.e. short arms deep pockets and we are no longer in the PL! As a Scot i think we Scots are thrifty not mean! As for Pulis style of football whilst I do not shout from the rafters that I enjoy it, it does bring results and I would prefer to be watching NCFC in the PL "hoofing" the ball than playing the "Norwich way" in league 1. I truly hope my bout of pessimism turns out to be a false dawn much in the same way that the Wolves game turns out to be a false start, but the jury is still out. OTBC

  • Having watched the Wolves game,there appears to be very little different to last year.The final ball is awful. The positional sense of many players is poor.Lets see when attacking, a near post runner and a far post runner.Providing the ball is played in accurately we may get a few goals!!! I am quite happy with the looks of Lafferty and Grabban but please NA don't rank them in front of HOOPER.At this level with a good service he will get you 2025 goals!!! Bennett at centre back should also be automatic. Norwich's main problem in the last two seasons has been an inability to pick their best players. Hooper for one must have been so frustrated watching the "WOLF". Pick your best players regardless of who bought them!!!!

  • Any posters on this message board who think that Neil Adams job is under threat should look to history and the inaction of the Board when they continually stick with a failing Manager rather than take the more difficult but obviously prudent decision to replace him. Hughton was retained an arguable 14 months after he was proven not fit for purpose. Neil Adams will be with us until we are in the bottom three of the Championship and any player with options will have left.

My starting XI...Olsson, Turner, Bennett, Martin, Tettey, Johnson, Redmond (on the right!), Pilkington, Hoolahan, Lafftery. Keep Grabban on the bench for injection of pace later in the game:)

  • Pulis is the man if NA doesn't work, all the directors where I work are CP fans and they all love Pulis, he will soon put things right. Experience is the key here to get players respect and committment, things need to get sorted and not dawdle like last season with CH. But we must get 100% behind the players on Saturday, let's hope Fer is fit. OTBC

  • Strange that a number of these so called 'positive ' posts are appearing across the NCFC websites at the moment.. More spin? Personally I'd take Pulis as manager tomorrow but it won't happen. The current structure would discourage that and the board do not want to admit they are wrong until it is too late. You may not like what some supporters have to say but supporters were treated like fools over the Hughton fiascoAdams appointment and will quickly make things very uncomfortable for NA if things do not improve quickly. It is not one game. It is a winless run with no visible signs of improvement. If the board do not know what they are doing the least they can do for the supporters is appoint a manager who does.

  • They won't sack Adams yet - it will take a few more bad results. Partly because they'd have to admit to getting it wrong again, as with Hughton, and partly because they havent given NA a fair chance yet, not in this league. But the early indications are not good.

  • Tight pants is correct, we won't get Pulis. For a start, he isn't already emplyed by the club (Walker, Deehan, Megson, Hamilton, Worthington, Gunn, Adams) and nor does he fit in to the "Norwich way", whatever that means. If the club want to be back in the PL, Pulis is the best bet. But if they want to stick with the nice man, easy option and safe bet, then he's already in the hot seat

  • Some of you seem to read between the lines of every article where there is nothing to read. The Board are not into fueling speculation stories of who they will sign and who they will sell.they report the done deal which is what I would expect Why shoulld every injury have some ulterior meaning? RVW was injured at the start of last season didn't leave till this season. So much speculation about Bassong and Bechio why should the Board play their cards on the speculation that appears in this column just to satisfy some of the "in the knowexpertsspeculators " that post on here. As supporters of course we want to know everything thats going on within our club but there has to be some business activities that are more commercially sensitive than keeping the fans informed on possible signings and sales of players. Come on guys if you are true supporters - support -don' t critise until you have something to really moan about.

I know the positive Polly's will say "eeuw, well it's been one game." But you can tell a lot of one game and the the tail end of last year. Your predictions aren't bad either. I would say the same. Hence why I think we'll finish mid table and they'll keep Adams on to save face. And there's nothing anyone can do about it except moan on here. It's a shame.

  • Really worried about where NCFC are going. Players leaving McNally counting the millions coming in!! No activity in the transfer market no troops coming in that we are aware of. NA should be made aware by the technical directors of football if they are up to the task!!! that we desperately need a decent centre half Russel Martin is a decent right back but never ever a quality centre back as proved on Sunday. Wittaker not good enough too slow. We also need a bit more quality in midfield cannot play Surman and Hoolahan together neither are ball winners !!! Why play one up front didn't appear to me that Adams tactics on Sunday were any better than Hoots!!!. My prediction is lose to Watford a point against Blackburn lose at Ipswich and a point against Bournemouth. Adams will be gone by mid October and we will be in the bottom 8 all season. The board have let us all down shot themselves in the foot we are looking at a long hard dismal season.

Just because a player is not fit it doesn't follow he's going to be transferred, I have no idea why people think that, Lafferty has been injured but he's not on his way out of the door is he.

  • As a Norwich supporter of many years, you do get rather sceptical of these stories. Remember Chase's "If Sutton isn't here at the start of next season, then I won't be here either." Bye bye, Mr Sutton, stay in your post, Mr Chase. Then the Dean Ashton waffle from Worthington: "He won't make the FA Cup game against West Hame because he is injured and I have the X-rays to prove it." Off he then went to West Ham. I haven't been encouraged by NA's comments about every player has his price as if Carrow Road is one massive car boot sale. Let's hope for a 4-4-2 formation this weekend with Grabban and Lafferty up front and feeding off two wingers, plus Bassong replacing Martin at centre-back. OTBC.

  • Do we have plenty of other players, Mellow Yellow? For me, our squad's looking pretty short. 2 keepers, 1 right back, 3 centre-halves, 2 left-backs but one is banned, then Bennett, Surman, Redmond, O'Neil, Johnson, Hoolahan, Tettey for the midfield and Lafferty and Grabban up front. That's not a lot of depth when you take out Hooper, Howson, Becchio, Bassong, Bunn and Fer. If Redmond goes too we are looking pretty weak. No left winger unless you count Josh Murphy, and he won't be ready to make 20 starts this season, not in a successful side anyway.

  • Í just hope Adams will pair Lafferty and Grabban on Saturday, play Redmond and one of the Murphy boys on the wings which would at least give us some pace and punch and hopefully provide something for the front men to feed off. I also hope O'Neil comes in to strengthen a weak defence. But oh to have a strong character in the team who could lead by example, gee others up and make sure everyone keeps focussed and does their job. Holt would never have allowed the kind of body language I saw in the tunnel before the Wolves game, with players looking at the ground, quiet and utterly pensive. Come on, City, let's look and behave as though we are confident in winning the game. That would be a start...

  • The communication out of Carrow Rd is so bad, no-one knows what to believe. Sign of inexperienced execs not up to the job, now things are getting a little bit more difficult. A poorly run business now going nowhere, unless something changes drastically.

  • Looks like they could be joining Pilks...... Are the board having a little purge to clear off players who are on high wages ? Get those 'fringe' players herded out Neil and lets sign some players from League One and maybe the odd PL loanee - way to go !!

  • @Old McDonald.....I'd concentrate on the farm if I was you. Hooper and Howson have been injured for a couple of weeks or so therefore its not news as such. Don't worry we have plenty of other players. @komakino........chin up old boy, lets keep positive! @el dingo.........hello again. dingo by name half wit by nature it seems....yes we do have other players fit - just two are out injured. @john dab.......what does "we what away" mean? @Cuttlefishpie......a great idea and probably the most sensible thing I've read in these forums for well over a year!

  • Is there any chance of us ever being "linked" with buying another player. A revolving door would be just about palatable...but this looks more one way

  • I think we need to have new football rules that you must be born in the county of the team you play for and wages must be set at the same as working at a shoe factory to reflect the actual value of what they do.

  • Are they suffering from the same injury as pilks, a severe case of ' we what away'

  • Do we actually have any fit, capable footballers who are actively prepared to play for us?

  • Interesting that these players who quite frankly, do not wish to be here are 'injured' before the transfer windows closes. I think things are going to get a whole lot worse before they get a whole lot better. The board seemed scared of success and are much happier being in The Championship it would seem.
