  1. January 2018 transfer thread

    World Cup year, last ditch effort to get himself into the squad with a bit of playing time. They’ve barely got any wingers or strikers, so he’ll stand a good chance of being consistently in the starting 11. I don’t think he’s as bad of a player as people make out but he hasn’t come across well throughout his career. Should have moved to Liverpool a few years back imo, Arsenal is a graveyard where careers go to die or at the very least lose momentum. I was talking about this with an Everton fan yesterday, who was the last person to truly flourish and find the next level in their career at Arsenal? Nasri, maybe? And who’d ever want to move there? All these players they’re linked with, it’s completely unrealistic. I think players would pick Spurs over them if they had the chance, imagine saying that 10 years ago. That club needs to change quickly otherwise they’re going to drop out of the ‘big 6’.
  2. Jerome's a good player....

    If anyone’s wondering whether @NorwichLad knows what he’s on about, check out this post from February, 2013, when we signed another one of their strikers...
  3. We need a chant for Vydra!

    Yes.
  4. Cameron Jerome - Signed 18 month deal

    Got myself excited for this signing now, I’ve missed us having a shithouse striker who can shove someone off the ball and smack in a header. Probably what we were missing at Wembley all those years ago. I’m a fan of Nugent and Winnall but I much prefer more physical strikers. As Delia would say, let’s be ‘avin ya 😎

    Medical isn’t until tomorrow is what I’ve just seen on twitter.

    Bradley Johnson at 10 made me want to vomit. I understand staying solid but it was shades of Pearson playing Butterfield on the wing for me; a player who really doesn’t suit a position and a manager stubbornly trying to get his system to work. It was horrific and made me really worried about what direction we were headed in. It’s easy to say in hindsight it was all part of getting on track and it turned out that way but a lot of people have forgotten how average we were at the start of the season faster than others. A decision like Johnson at 10 and the way we’d aimlessly hit it up for someone to chase is why some people still think Rowett plays anti-football. They weren’t good foundations but we’ve way, way surpassed any fears I had now, this system is ruthlessly effective in its own way.

    23 and 25 for keepers is the equivalent to 18 and 20 for an outfield player in my eyes. They might not peak for another 5-7 years! Look at Carson and Grant, they’ve both peaked at around 31-34. There’s plenty of time for them both, particularly as I dont think either of them have had an entire season starting for a competitive league team. I wouldn’t be worried at all. Get them both out on loan for the rest of the season and the season after, then see what we’ve got.
  8. Cameron Jerome - Signed 18 month deal

    I think this is similar to the Curtis Davies signing. A proven, high quality championship player who’s a good fit but they’re both the wrong side of 30. It’s natural to have some concerns about their age because we’ve got an old squad already but I think Rowett’s found value through experienced players like those two. They both might only be good value for this season but 500k and 1.5 million for both of them represents a lot of value for money, particularly if we get promoted. It’s even better value when you consider we’d have probably been paying 5 million for Grant Hanley and 8/9 million for someone like Oliviera. I’d obviously much rather have younger players who can still improve, something I think we’ll be able to sort in the summer but they’ll give us the best chance at promotion for now. A few months ago I wasn’t completely sold on Rowett’s plan and style of play, which was justified at the time because attacking wise we didn’t seem too reliable and we looked bang average off the back of games like Bristol City away. Brentford away was a bit of a breaking point for me, Rowett looked like he was going in the complete wrong direction but he’s completely turned it round. Rowett’s style has settled and we look like we could challenge for the title, let alone automatics. It’s a cliche but the team has gelled. We’ve reached the point where there’s no argument for using Martin when the system has become so successful, Jerome will contribute more in the next few months than Martin would. Jerome is a signing that can keep us riding this wave until the end of the season.
  9. NFL 17/18

    So happy for Case Keenum, seems like a super nice guy and playing out of his skin. So cool to see a journeyman have his moment in the sun. Minnesota are the one team left I think could take the Patriots, that defense is a match for their offense. Really hope the first ever home Super Bowl is on the cards...

    Bound to happen at some point.
  11. Cameron Jerome - Signed 18 month deal

    I was there yesterday, if you watched him for the 20 mins or so he was on, he didn’t look as sharp as he did at the start of the season. It’s natural and part of having older strikers. Doesn’t mean he still can’t contribute like he did at the end yesterday but it’s becoming increasingly obvious that he can’t play full 90’s for us anymore, particularly when the striker is expected to do so much running in Rowett’s system. Just because he got an assist off the bench yesterday doesn’t mean he’s suddenly 28 again.
  12. We're coming after you Wolves

    We should be aiming for them now, our form is good enough. Let’s set our eyes on winning the league and if we fall short, it’ll hopefully only mean finishing 2nd.
  13. Cameron Jerome - Signed 18 month deal

    He is both an excellent fit and awful fit. We need a big bullying striker to fill Nugent’s boots now he seems to be slowing down a bit, just needs to be able to move the defence about a bit to create space for Vyds and chip in with a handful of goals before the end of the season. Nugent and Winnall will probably still play their part. Jerome historically fits that bill and 1.5 million is peanuts. However, we do not not not need another 30+ striker on the books. We might get use out of him until the end of the season but if we don’t go up, we’re stuck with Nugent and Jerome as our two strikers- both 33 and on big wages. Good luck shifting them. And if Norwich fans are saying his legs have gone already, what are we actually achieving in bringing him in? It might be that they’re fed up of him, like some Derby fans are with Martin, so are just badmouthing him on his way out but I reckon he could be a dud. Hate to be a “Martinite” but this team is playing football more and more, I’d rather see him stick around and see where we are at the end of the season. We’ve won games when Martin’s started, Nugent’s started and Winnall’s started. I don’t think 2018 Cameron Jerome represents enough of a step up from any of them to warrant bringing him in.
  14. Cameron Jerome - Signed 18 month deal

    He’s not as good as Martin. But he’s a muscular better fit than Martin. Hope his wages aren’t too big.
  15. Vydra; could he end up being the top scorer in this division?

    His goal today was hilarious. Thought he’d completely ******* it, on his week foot with a crap angle, then just hit it as hard as possible; goal. The bloke is on fire, if we keep thsi form up, he’ll be top goal scorer for the league.
