    Wideos now, Iíve had the tom tit, the early shave (donít want to nick yourself before getting the bus later, funny how you if you shave just before going out you always have a bloody mishap), cup of tea.

    I canít remember feeling like this on season opening day since I was playing, I couldnít sleep at all then. Jesus, I hope itís to no avail and the boys perform later. Címon the City.......or have I got to wait for some aggression until we play the Blades?
    Same looking forward to it

    Going to have to look back through the signings to see who's who, and try and work out where they are playing!

    But I said the sort of team Norwich are going to put out - Pukki is not all about aerial battling and power, it seems to me that you need someone with some pace and anticipation against him and that would not be a Sean Morrison whoíll be thirty two in January. In a fortnight, we face Birmingham who could pick someone like Jutkiewicz who would dominate Ng in the air, then it becomes a different argument and Kipre and Ng looks a bit more vulnerable.

    Leaving now, not expecting too much today, Norwich will be a decent team

    We will get park up and have a spot to lunch and hopefully be entertained

    Wasn't it Alan Durban who replied to a reporter here '..if you want entertainment you should go to the circus..'

    The good thing about it being norwich is nobody expects anything. The bad thing is we could start with ng at centre half and realise norwich in the league is different to swindon in a pre season friendly and be 3 0 down in 20 mins......
    Id rather we play crap , boring game and sneak a 1 nil win.

    Morrison is a leader and will organise the back 4 which has looked a bit of a mess so far. Heís also an excellent centre back. Itís not just about his strength in the air.

    Not only that but we need to compete at set pieces. Morrison is very good at both ends with that.

    His passing is better than he gets credit for too.

    Iím also not one for swapping defenders around. Organisation and partnerships are SO important.

    Iím also yet to be convinced that Ng is an answer in a 2. Hopefully it works out for him as Iím not expecting Morrison to be back soon, and even so itíll be a big ask for him to get back to his previous level

    I am pretty sure Mozzer will be given a new contract when he is fit again - provided the club are confident he can get back to his previous levels. He was in the Championship team of the season just a few years ago, the No 4 shirt is unclaimed, and Dalman said something about having a conversation with him and his agent at the right time when asked during the Q&A on YouTube.

    Fingers crossed. With Flint leaving as well it feels like we are short of experience and leadership in there.

    I think McGuinness can be a success, not overly impressed with Nelson, yet to see enough to judge on Kipre and nervous about Ng in a two, Denham is decent and may also develop into a decent centre half so still room for improvement in that position

    Morrison wasnít at his best last season, but even so heís got enough credit in the bank to deserve a chance.

    Agreed, would love to see Morrison back at some point, a real asset and leader.
    I do feel the same way as you about Nelson unfortunately, he actually played fairly well alongside Morrison but hasn't looked good enough without him.

    I think in McGuiness and Denham we have some potential but the fact that Ng is being thrown in there, is slightly worrying. It suggests maybe neither are considered ready which is a concern given we only really have Kipre!

    Would be interested to know how close or far away from first team action, Steve Morrison considers both Denham and McGuiness to be.

    I’ve cheated, I’ve printed off the names and squad numbers, so if you see someone glancing at a sheet of A4 in the grandstand every couple of seconds give us a wave. My days of buying a programme are long gone, the fanzine days saw to that.

    I took a screenshot of the squad and numbers on my phone. E|asier than pulling a piece of A4 out of my pocket avery two minutes.

    could be worse, could be a A3 sheet due to poor eyesight
