    alanmarklewis reacted to LittleEatonRam in Chris Martin to Replace David Nugent?   
    I've said this before but here I go again - the way some of our fans talk about Chris Martin you'd think he never did anything for us.
    He's not asking if we should give Sammon another go, he's talking about a player who scored 20 goals for 2 seasons running when we hadn't had a 20 goal a season striker in 19 years. And he got 16 in the season after that.
    We spent those 19 years moaning on "we need a 20 goal striker!" (trust me, I was there for those years, I remember), and now our fans talk about him like he's been nothing but a failure. 
    Seems to me lots of our fans are spoilt.

    No, not the players. The performance on the pitch wasn’t great, but it wasn’t terrible. I can take the loss.
    What I can’t stomach is how embarrassing our fans  were today. I’ve seen more atmosphere in the North Stand for a pre-season friendly. When the boys needed us most in the second half, we let them down. A couple of us in the ‘singing section’ were trying to get things going but we were met with dirty looks and disdain. I was absolutely fuming for the majority of the second half because our ‘fans’ offered the square root of duck all.
    I don’t care who this pisses off. I don’t care if I lose the respect of those who I hold in high regard on this forum. What I care about is representing my ducking club, and I felt ashamed to do that today. At the very least, we should have given the loanees a proper send off to thank them for their services, but the majority ducked off to beat the tube traffic.
    I’ve never been as down after a game as I was today. And it’s got absolutely nothing to do with how the team played.
    Embarrassing.

    my mate woody flew back from australia to watch norwich in the play off final a couple of years ago. the local paper printed an article about it, but miscaptioned the photo.

    alanmarklewis reacted to DcfcJB in Sack Frank   
    Lost my patience this season now, nowhere near as good as we should be, but the worst part is there is no passion in that team. Poor results you can deal with bad performances can be frustrating but we haven’t turned up for a game since before Christmas, what is completely unacceptable is not turning up to play at all against your bitter rivals. Embarrassment.

    The state of those replies on Twitter (and the one above me here).
    Hes not good enough? He’s crap? He’s 18 years old FFS, first season as a pro and not at all looking out of place. He’s got a bright future ahead of him, wherever he ends up. 
    If Derby fans can’t get behind one of there own, I truly despair. What a horrible attitude.

    Bit more certain in other papers saying he wants to come back now Rowetts gone .Rather be in the Championship with Derby than the Prem with Cardiff .Bryso is a Ram he hates Forest.
    Seriously though whatever you think from a playing perspective there have been players shipped out that clearly didn't want to go and had the club at heart.[Unlike that snake Two Shots]

    I think,sadly,you (we) can dream on about Bryson being welcomed back....rowett doesn't want players like that or Martin.
    They will be sold or loaned out and to be honest,why would they want to come back?....they wouldn't be played,they don't fit into rowetts way and would end up playing little to no football.
    The days of little triangles,interpassing,holding onto the ball etc are gone my friend.

    Sacking Rowett would be ridiculous. Absolutely ridiculous. We've just lost in the play offs to a team that went HALF a season unbeaten and didn't lose at home. 
    The effort was there but we just don't have enough quality. Our use of the ball in the final 3rd is terrible. Weimann, Lawrence the main culprits. Look at their use of the ball and look at ours. They have better players all over the park. I'd have Davies from our team and Wisdom at a push. But from there on in. Every single one of their players would get in our side. 
    Think it's time to thank Keogh for his efforts and move him on. Keep Davies and get a young centre half in to play alongside him. 
    Forsyth is horrendous. He was embarrassing today and has been embarrassing all season. Terrible footballer. Has to go. 
    Then we need some quality in midfield and the final 3rd.
    Weimann. Cant fault his effort. But no end product. 
    Nugent is past it. 
    Jerome has had a good run but he ain't the answer. 
    Huge season for Lawrence next season. Cos he's frustrated the life out of me. 
    Can't see us keeping Vydra. Think we'll sell him on the back of his best ever season. 15 million plus and he's gone. 
    Would like to see us sign Winnall and a striker on loan maybe? Hugill at West Ham as an option. 
    We need a left back, midfielder and a winger. A good old fashioned winger.

    The media were wrong. We scored with our only shot on target, whilst Fulham hit the bar, forced an outstanding save from Carson, and somehow blasted over from 6 yards out. We gave up way too many chances in that first leg and it would've been more had Davies not played the game of his life to keep Mitrovic quiet. There was no way we were going to get that lucky again if we played the same way, but we literally can't play any other way. All the creativity and energy has been sucked out of the squad.

    alanmarklewis reacted to Bob The Badger in They absolute minimum you should expect   
    From a professional footballer, is that they try hard.
    That should be a given. It should never be in question.
    To be proud of doing the bare minimum for your job, seems like a very low bar to me.
    I'd prefer to be proud because they player fluid attacking fearless football. 
    I was proud af of the team that lost to QPR at Wembley.
    I'm just puzzled by this team because they are so lacking in skill, vision and creativity.

    Don’t get me wrong Fulham looked clueless with what to do with the ball, so defensively it was top drawer.
    I just wanted us to keep the ball for a bit longer than we did!
    How bad were the Fulham fans though, worst support I’ve seen in years, especially for the magnitude of the game.  
    We were superb of course 😎.

    Happy with the result of course but that was a painful match to watch.
    We were incredibly careless when we actually had possession and our final ball was poor. On another day Fulham would have easily beaten us.
    Can’t see us being able to get away with it on Monday, however it’s been a good  end to the season so whatever happens we can say they put up a good fight!
