Oh dear! Here we go again, show's the clubs desire and ambition for top flight football by getting Turner, Jerome etc to sign extended contracts. When it was obvious they were not Premier standard, it looks a case of they'll do for next season, no expense. Gary O'Neil has moved on, no big loss but a steady player, but I will be surprised if we reach the play off's with the clubs involved for Promotion, hope I'm proved wrong.

To the question on should Neil be sacked I really can't think who is out there to replace him this late in the season they should have done it earlier if they where going to do it.
who would anyone suggest is available to replace him go back to Adams who is at the club, No good manager would come in hoping to change it around as there isn't a transfer window available to bolster the squad his biggest mistake was buying Dorrans and selling Bradley who worked well with Howsen and scored goals also gave the opposition a hard time.

Hi All
I have supported NCFC since 1956 and with all the managers we have had in charge in this time I am disappointed with AN in his choice of players for the run in to the end of the season.
Why keep playing CJ he would miss an open net if he was playing by his self, RM has never been a centre half so why play him there rightback is his best position, give Bamford a full game along side Naismith or try some of the youth team at least they would put in some effort.
use bassong, Bennett and klose as a 3 man centre with pinto and olson then in midfield use howson and mulumbu at the front use bamford, molaki, brady and redman with ruddy in goal.

{Ed001's Note - do you think Neil needs to be replaced?}

I see Neil has said the struggles are down to lack of quality. It really is difficult to disagree as Norwich clearly lack any real quality players, lots of hard work, but no real cutting edge.

However, is that not down to Neil? I mean he chooses the players, he is the one that went for a grafter in Naismith, rather than finding a quality forward under the radar like Leicester did, for instance.

Is he not mainly to blame for the Canaries being where they are, with a system that emphasises hard work over any kind of attacking flair? While hard work is essential, it needs an end product, in Neil's case that end product seems to be purely defensive minded.

He wants to stop the opponent, that is his sole focus. Surely in Norwich's position the focus should be on going at opponents and trying to get wins? Draws are no use to a club in relegation trouble. Wins are needed.

I agree in terms of results and tactics. The stats say that Norwich are the Prems lowest user of the through ball. This is significant. In other words we do not seek to use passing moves to get opposition defences out of position. The though ball is often a counter attacking side's main weapon.
The high press is an obsession for us however as a one trick pony with no counter attacking game we are easy to defend against. If you cut out our crossing we have nothing to offer but long shots which most prem sides can defend all day. The game stats flatter us too as we have shots a plenty mostly from range and decent possession and pass completion figures. We think we should win but we don't.
Mourihno would often talk about transitions being the key to winning prem games. It is very easy for opposition defenders to keep a good shape against us because we are too slow in the transition and totally lacking a counter attacking threat. We actually have got the players to play counter attacking football so instead of winning possession and playing a bunch of square balls as we gradually move up the field and the opposition get back Into shape as we do now we need to play the killer ball to runners into space. Leicester are the Prems top player of the through ball incidentally.

Is it time for Alex Neil to stand down? !!!!!!!!!!!

Neil's man management skills are first rate his tactic nous less so.
He is still flummoxed by how to attack in this league and it is rare that you will ever see opposition defenders running back towards their goal because they are out of position.
Pass completion and shots make for a good squawka rating but they don't win games. The ball has to go into the goal for that.
Fast transitions running off the ball and playing the chuffing through ball will. Sadly this is not something Neil does. He has pace all over the field and players with passing skills so sadly the manager must take responsibility for our lack of goals.
He was surprised by the amount of counter attacking in this league. I am surprised that he has not done anything with this observation. Is he still arguing with reality? No goals in 9 starts is poor. Really poor. How many times has Redmond had the chance to get behind the full backs only to stop and play the square ball. Why does the manager have him do that ? Why aren't players running into the box when we break? That is all down to the manager. He is responsible for our lack of goals as much as the players are.

Disappointed to see Pritchard has gone to Burnley, would have been a good addition, I know a lot of people think we've got enough in midfield, but apart for Wes the others all very similar, good at playing sideways or back. Desperately need a play maker

I think we should drop Martin he, s so slow, replace him with klose and try to get in quality centre back. the game was very exciting for neutral fans but not for us city fans. far to many mistakes at the back all season.
