Hughton and Holt in the News

Brighton have named Chris Hughton as their new manager after Sami Hyypia resigned last week Brighton Chairman Tony Bloom said, "Chris has an excellent record in coaching and management. He's hugely respected, both nationally and internationally, and he has great contacts within the game. Now we will see how Hughton sets his sides up, wheth [...]

Thank God We Don't Play them Again lololol

I take it the knives and axes are out again, crying for Neil Adams head after another dissappointing second defeat to Reading.    I was not surprised in the team set up, after all this had worked well oin a couple of previous games  and being honest had enough in and about it to do the job.  If not the bench was more that a [...]

Looks like Ryan Bennett to return to the 1st 11

Today's match with Reading should see the return to the starting line up of Ryan Bennett after his return from injury and a successful run out with the Under 21s before Christmas in place of the injured Carlos Cuellar who took a knock in the win against Milwall on Boxing Day For me this is a good move - I have always rated Bennett as one of our [...]

Not long until we open the window

Yep, not long now until the January transfer window reopens, and I have to say as a club I think it will be a quiet one It's a long while since I can remember an approach to a transfer window so quiet, only a couple of rumours on the outbound with Ruddy being linked to a number of clubs although seemingly little of substance, that being said if [...]

The Belief and Determination are Back

Not wanting to be seen as only putting keyboard to electronic paper when City play badly, I thought i had better make a comment or two about the latest round of games for our yellow team.  Although not seeing anything of the game except the goals, i am not attempting to write a report. If Derby County are promotion favourites then City have li [...]

The Ginger Pele Retires

Ex City Defender/striker Gary Doherty has been forced to retire from the game at the age of 34.  Doc has not played this term after suffering a knee injury in pre-season. His 17-year career spanned 501 games for Luton Town, Tottenham, Norwich City, Charlton and Wycombe, and he also won 34 caps for his country. "It's the hardest decisi [...]

Old Boy Martin updated

If I am counting correctly, ex City boy Chris Martin picked up his 5th yellow of the season so far in last nights defeat to Chelsea in the Capitol One Cup,  which would mean he will miss his clubs next game, against City.  Derby also had a defender sent off so he will also be missing unless they can lodge a successfuo appeal in time. &nbs [...]

Grant Holt Has Not been Replaced

I am not a great lover of the term  legend,  I think the word has been used far to many times thus chealening it's meaning. But every so often a Norwich City player rises above his teamates past and present and rightly gets that extra bit of praise,  among the many players that gone through the doors at Carrow Road some really st [...]

Are They Going to be Queuing For Ruddy ?

As you would expect the rumours are starting to fly the rounds, the major one this week concerns John Ruddy, with national newspapers suggesting that Neil Warnock (Colin to his friends) is going to renew interest in taking our big man to Selhurst park for competition with Speroni.    While Ruddy's old club Everton now managed by Rober [...]

Let's Give Credit with Interest

I do feel more than a little sorry for Neil Adams, his team grinds out a very valuable and much needed 3 points, showing much more determination and resilience than of late. But yet he gets very little credit, those strongly in favour of a new manager  gives the least credit, finding just about everything that can be found wrong and a lot that [...]

OK Neil .. Honestly Do you Think You Can ?

I have only ever three times been eager to see a manager changed. that is since the early 1960's   they were Nigel Worthington, Glenn Rodent and Chris Hughton the later two I never wanted in the hotseat to start with. Bryan Gunn should never have been given the job in the first place, I am now at the same point in thinking the same wi [...]
