  • Blaff, I think the lunchtime bash at the Plasterer`s was Fagen`s gig. I hope it`s still on. I can manage a sensible lunchtime session but need to retire to my coffin in the evenings. Also no f*****g public transport back to this backwater after 6pm. It would be great to meet up with a few of the `adversaries`. It`s been such fun! I tested myself again today with a bus ride into Gross Yarmaul. I couldn`t wait for the bus back (though, of course, I had to). I think I spotted Mattias` latest Tardis in Market Gates. It was a pram with a hi-fi in it, and a little ol` boy miming to Elvis songs with a puppet. My favourite is still the Parisian P!ssoir in Paragon Place. (To the tune of Long-haired lover from Liverpool).

  • My selection: Ruddy; Back 4: Bassong (not on form but we need some sort of captain figure), Russell (ditto and if one of the central defenders has a mare, he can play in the centre and Whitaker can replace him at right back), Yobo (not great last week but he was playing next to RB who had a shocker, and Yobo has done well alongside SB), and Garrido (deserves another chance). Midfield: Johnson and Howson. Wide players: Redmond (playing on the right where he belongs) and Olsson (a naturally left sided player who can get forward, cross the ball and hasn't done much wrong all season. Also,he can drop back if Garrido doesn't do the business). Up front: Hooper with Wes tucked in behind (can't risk Becchio to start, not enough match practice, but can come on as a sub if Wes tires or Hooper fails. On the bench: Snodgrass, Tettey, Whitaker amongst others. In the dug out: anyone but Hughton. IMHO, any selection will struggle because they've lost the will to play for club and shirt (Hughton saw to that). Our PL status is as good as gone, and with our lousy GD, it makes little difference if we lose 1-0 or 5-0. So we might as well have a go. Strange though it sounds, we might even beat Sunderland.

  • The offer of an elbow-raiser at the Overweight Feline is still open, Gek. You could wander the surrounding back streets and reacquaint yourself with motor cycle dealers of your youth (Tnklers in Northumberland Street). A pint of The Bishops Farewell will serve you better than a handful of Panegyrics tablets. Still, having declined the offers of pint with Gene Putney and a tactical tryst with TK Max outside the River End, I won't hold my breath. Maybe you're saving yourself for BP2's grand reunion when we all get plastered.

  • We've tried just about every formation and player and nothing clicks. I think it's time to give a couple of the hungry younger guys a go. You never know we might find a gem in Loza, Morris or Murphy. I would like to see Redmond played up front with Hooper as that's the only combination I haven't seen that might work.

  • I think I've finally reached the point of not caring anymore. Players say how positive they are, they need to luck above not over their shoulders, everyone has faith in the manager, 2 quick wins and all will be better... It goes on and on. The only thing that matters from the first team are the performances, and they're not good enough... Until that changes I for one don't want to hear the players giong on about how such a band of happy clappy fully bonded people they are

  • Anything other than a win means only one thing for us I fear as I predict we need a minimum of 7 points to survive. I cannot see anything other than a defeat at Fulham so that leaves 3 games to gain those points. The last four games offer little hope. Lets all hope we get a good fair ref on Saturday as they can likewise affect too many games these days.

  • When the best player sits on the bench and the most classy defender who came in on loan suddenly looks lost and not involved and only a few games left to save the day, and my brother walked out at half time against Stoke, my mate offered me his season ticket next term, I know we are doomed, even my barber, a "Snake Pit" nutter, is resigned to the "DROP", the thing is we all say we are good enough, and all say, we don't know why he's still in charge, it's like a train going to hit the buffers, while the signalmans having a kip, and the enquiry will be a white wash.

  • Never mind the 'must-win' games we've had before, this one is the real deal. Denying Sunderland three points at this stage and taking them ourselves puts us in a much stronger position in terms of survival. They simply have to do it. Failure is not an option on this occasion.

  • It will be interesting to see if this team can stir themselves into a fighting unit. Their inept and second rate spiritless perfomances have put the club in such a terrible position. CH is not the man for this club but you have to have some pity for him when the players are performing so woefully.

  • It most certainly is not, LYB. I could do with a 2-1 win just to get a few quid back from the bookies for my disastrously optimistic standing bet! Same bet was lucrative in the Lambo year, costly last year and hopeless this time.

  • Saw Hughton interviewed on Local BBC News this morning. He does a great impersonation of himself. He comes across as so, well, `beige`. Passionless and lifeless. I don`t know whether it makes much difference who he picks now. Nobody seems to perform for him. Wes, Becchio & Pilks might perform despite him. Maybe Garrido too? Snodgrass would be OK if he didn`t play on the right. Same old same old. I need some Panegyric pills or a pot of Premier Potency Pollyanna Potion. Or a few pints of Nelson`s Revenge.

  • I agree totally with Surrey Canary. The time for "gung-ho""Happy clappy" press releases is long past. All that matters now is hard ground out wins. Sadly, I feel that this teams morale is rock bottom, and that I've predicted a hopeful draw. So....So....sad. So many wasted opportunities. Too many inflexible line-ups, too many late or wrong substitutions. Too little vital motivation when it's needed. This was to be the season when Norwich consolidated. Instead.....it all seems to have collapsed.

  • I can't see us winning this, 1-2 loss. The players heads seem to be all over the place and they've already lost interest. I would assume CH is gone in the summer no matter what happens. He knows this as do they which is why we're heading aimlessly as a club. If we do lose then the Directors have to take a stand and replace CH with an interim coach even if it's Neil Adams.

  • Such withering condemnation, Brewer. "Beige"..... love it. I read somewhere that if you are unlucky enough to own a beige motor, the colour will reduce it's second-hand value by several hundred quid. When Rotherham Utd try to poach our manager in the summer, the FA tribunal, tasked with determining the compensation, will doubtless consider the "beige" factor.

  • Indeed Surrey indeed, Let us consider this Sunderland match: Let us think of heroes such as Ron Davies to get us out of this dreadful mess: Shine on you Tommy Bryceland: My mind suddenly cast back to that fateful day, May the third 2009. Behind the Valley of death, a man dressed as an undertaker pinned a memoriam to a mast ‘Norwich City RIP’. It was a chilling moment that encapsulated a pitiless and embarrassing display that remains indelibly etched on the memory. That game had that same feeling of dreadful resolution about it, that benign acceptance of fate and inevitability. I never want to go back to that insipid place. 'Remember that the Mirror shows many things, and not all have yet come to pass. Some never come to be, unless those that behold the visions turn aside from their path to prevent them. The Mirror is a dangerous guide of deeds.' not to mention the fact that it’s a cr&p newspaper. Kick it off, but never throw it in. Let’s have a little scrimmage
