It's a shame when people scrutinise the team?

No Its shame in our current form.

No goals in 3 games and 2 points from 9 is our current form.

We've only won 4 games this season.  I keep thinking that the aim is to win games but then I come on here and some people seem to think it's just not to lose.

The disallowed penalty isn’t the problem today. Starting with only three attacking players is the massive problem and when Marvin Johnson is one of them and playing wing back you are asking for 0 goals. It’s negative but it’s keeping us ticking along and will probably keep us in the top half but again a lack of goals will keep us out of the top 6

Well, that's what the manager thinks

The match wasn’t awful but was hardly entertaining. We’re not going down, we’re not going up, it’s going to be a fairly mundane season and I can live with that.

Its the same year after year we don't create enough chances, so we don't score many goals, and have to rely on our defence, never seems to get addressed regardless of who's in charge, its like a stuck record.

Yeah I will say, despite the opposition, I was a bit shocked to see that people would be happy with a point out of this one. It's a home game, we should be looking to win all our home games really but especially given our trend of not winning, we need to turn draws into wins.

When was the last time we played against a team with a player-manager on the pitch?

Just thinking there, seeing as Rooney captained and managed Derby in their 1-0 defeat today and we play them next.

Sky always like refering to him as Derby's Quarter Back

Well thats because we now know how the manager thinks...

I'm hoping this result might force him to reconsider his tactics, but I won't hold my breath.

In fairness to Norwich this was a game of two halves. We were better first half, but they got right back into it 2nd half.

I still think a draw would have been a fair result overall.

They just had a decent penalty taker and benefitted from some strange subs on our part.

I wouldn't say that's the case. Personally, I think the 'majority' are just happy not to have performances and results like last season before Warnock.

The aim is to win games of course it is, as a fan I expect my team to try and win every game but we have a manager in charge who has been successful in making his team's hard to beat and getting results by playing rigid tactics.

Its going to be another season where fans disagree over performances and getting results. Results are most important in my eyes.

    • Not just Roberts (x2) we have had Nmecha, Van le parra, Batth and Morrison all with very few appearances for us. I guess it will depend on whether the player is a youngster looking for experience, a lad looking to put himself in the shop window or someone they just want off the books.
    • That’s what I meant. It’s the same rules now for EU and non EU players. The rules for non EU players have been relaxed in line with the rules for EU players 
    • Redcar R I don't think it is down to the boots.  Browne stuck his leg well into the turf with an apparent intention of creating a "solid hip " to lever the player away.  We've all done it ! I was quite surprised that he got injured and tended to assume that it was because he'd used his inside leg to make it less obvious. I've seen a knee go back in again on its own but it is an odd and very upsetting sight to see a knee cap next to where is should be  
    • As far as I have read all countries have been put into different tiers and players are awarded points according to league, international games, caps etc. It doesn't matter if you are EU or non-EU. It's easier for some south american players than before Brexit but certainly not easier than a European. https://worldfootballindex.com/2020/12/work-permits-premier-league-post-brexit-english-clubs-efl-libertadores/
