Do you know Mike, he didn't say anything about Grant Hanley being sent off! I had no idea about it until I just read your post.

We went down to Riverside Morrisons today (just beside Carrow Road) and husband looked longingly at the stadium. He'll be back again in no time I reckon.
His Gambian mate Jammeh (the Security steward) told him he should apply for a Season Ticket, but there's a long waiting list and it costs the Earth.

I'm ashamed of Klopp. Fans deserve their club taking competitions seriously and that did not happen tonight. If he wants to rest his best players he should put on his strongest team from the start and make subs later when we're winning. Liverpool were shambolic for half an hour in the first half. Alberto-omigod-he's-got-the-ball-I'm-having-a-heart-attack-Moreno has got to go, as has Sturridge, and Mignolet, who was at fault for the Neves goal, is just scary. Young guys should have a go one at a time, not three at once. Jones was way out of his depth. A poor do, and bad for club morale.

Hi
Steve....yes Clopp dropped a clanger there.

There was plenty of warnings for him in the previous week.

Man United made 9 changes against lowly Reading which nearly came unstuck. Like Liverpool last night the changes made for a poor game as United struggled to gather some kind of organisation, but they couldn't put two passes together and were outplayed for most of the game by a shot-shy Reading team.

There were a number of other " surprises where managers made unnecessary changes to try to save their teams for oncoming league games.

That's all well and good if it comes off, but Clopp is going to be very sorry if these future games don't come out as he wants.
City will be chasing them hard in the league and Europe will soon be on the menu.

Who knows what this result will do to the players.?

Besides, your point of satisfying the fans is GOOD ONE.

Cheers

Mike

PS we have to go to Arsenal in the next round, I would have preferred
Oldham   LOL

Hi

Yes United under Ole has awakened them to start to play as we know Man United should play.

Recently there have been two great games to watch for excitement and entertainment. Man City v Liverpool was a cracker and last night United v Spurs was a good runner up to that game.

Yes we owe much to David de Geah who had an absolute blinder. However Spurs showed that United's defence is very weak and needs stenghtening as soon as possible. However in the first half United could ( should ) have scored three or four goals but some wayward finishing and good keeping by Spurs' goalkeeper limiting them to that brilliant goal by Lingard + Pogba's superb pass finished by Rashford.

Just of to watch City v Wolves ( on TV . Wolves are capable of causing an upset but I think City will win what could be a good game.

Cheers

Along with the Guardian reporter, I did wonder why City didn't go for the jugular and extend their superior goal difference. Who knows, it could be crucial at the end of the season. As things stand they are just two better than Liverpool, who, in recent weeks, wiped out a massive goal-difference deficit. Just one own-goal after half-time? Feeble!

Hi Steve

Yes I was a bit surprised at City's approach to the situation when it was open to them to improve their goal difference when they had the chance.

My wife who thought that City scoring nine against Burton was " nasty " and maybe yesterday they were being nice to Wolves. lol

I agree that the interest went out of the game. I watched Murder in Paradise to pacify my good lady.

Hi

The chase for the top places in the Premiere League gets hotter.

I watched most of the games this week-end and noticed the strain especially on the top teams. Liverpool had a few shocks in their game with Crystal Palace, After a struggle they eventually won 4-3.
Salah managed to score a couple but once again was seen to dive in the penalty area. If he is not careful he will get a reputation and have the referees watching him closely.

Man City were out of form in a tame first half but rallied to win, Huddersfield 0 Man City 3.

Spurs were given a huge fright by lowly Fulham only managing to
scramble home with the last move of the game Spurs 2 Fulham 1.
Chelsea lost to a improved Arsenal Arsenal 2 Chelsea 0.

Man united only just held off a Brighton chase. Man United 2 Brighton 1.

It looks to me that there will be 2 competitions One for top place by Liverpool and Man City.

There is a chase for the next 2 places contested ever more closely by Spurs, Chelsea, Arsenal and Man United.

I find it difficult to forecast the third and fourth places.

It's going to be interesting. !!!!!

Cheers

Mike

Only last week he was transferred to Cardiff City.

He was flying from France to Cardiff in a light aircraft with just the pilot aboard.

The plane went off air over the Channel Islands and has not been located since.

There are many organisations involved in the search but as yet there is no sign.

Hi

I have been away on a surprise week-end organised as a late Xmas present by my sons and our niece.

They paid for a long week-end for me and my wife to stay in London. They had somehow managed to get tickets for us to go to the Arsenal v Man United FA Cup game. Also we got tickets to see Crystal Palace v Tottenham.

The man united game was a cracker when 2 teams with probably the two worst defences in the league attacked each other all through the game.

United came through 1 - 3 to complete Ole's run of wins to 8. !!

Brilliant to watch.

The other game was not very good to watch except that the underdogs won.

Hoping united can continue their run tomorrow when the meet Burnly in the league. We don't have a great record against them but I hope Ole's march for the top carries on.

SEN I see that Noewich are holding their own. Pity that Leeds won tho.

Howdydoo, Mike. I've been enjoying watching Man U's revival under Ole (see, I'm not as tribal as you thought!), but he made some strange picks tonight. Why did he leave Herrera out? And Lukaku is a definite bench man in my book. I felt a bit sorry for Burnley, me boyhood team (hail Jimmy Mac, one of the greatest men ever to grace a football pitch), as Man U did one of Fergie's late escape acts (as Ole would know!). Anyway, cheers to Rafa for the favour tonight, and let's hope Liverpool can do the job tomorrow. I have BT Sport Mobile and I'll be watching!

hi Steve

I know that your " tribal" moans are you just getting us going.

I do not know why Ole picked that side. Perhaps he's trying to give some of the younger players a chance for him to see what they can do.

It nearly rebounded on him as Some blunders were made by a couple of his introductions.

Burnley have always had a place in my heart. I used to love the Jimmy Mc.ilroy era. As you say....top man both on and off the field.

We have had a number of battles with recent teams and they have

Become one of our bogie teams.

I watched the City game....They scored in 25 seconds and after that they played a lot of rubbish.

So there you are it's wide open for you. I will be watching tonight. I am sure they will win if they play anything like their top form.

Hi

Liverpool 1 - Leicester 1'

I watched the full game on TV. Almost like the night before ( Man City ) Liverpool shot out of their traps and scored very early on. After that Liverpool appeared to ease up. The game de-generated into a boring game with poor passing and little or no pace, surprisingly, especially for Liverpool. Their defence appeared disorganised. And just before the interval Leicester in the shape of harry McGuire stole a goal from a hesitant Liverpool defence.

Second half was Liverpool trying to pierce a stubborn Leicester defence. Leicester made several breaks and created some havoc in the liverpool team. They more than earned their draw.

Liverpool had a penalty turned down which seemed to have demoralised them.

They still have a 5 point lead but will have to play better than this to win the League.

Cheers

Mike

PS Chelsea got flattened 4-0 to make the chase for top 4 interesting.

I would'nt describe it as " Stone Wall Penalty and certainly not a sending off. The player had lost control of the ball and it was not certain that he would have recovered enough to have scored.

A clear foul in the penalty area is a stonewall penalty, Mike. There is nothing in the laws of the game that says the bar is set higher for fouls inside the box. And a very clear foul it was. As for fouling the last man In a clear goal-scoring opportunity, the key word is "opportunity," not "dead cert.".

Hi Nigel

Watched most of the games in the rugby Union 5 Nations Cup.

Wales were great and never gave up after being 16 - nil down. They are going to be hard to beat.

The Scotland game was not convincing as they allowed Italy to get three late tries.

The England v Ireland game was great as England pulled off a great win against the favourites to win the title.

But a great start ball which promises to be an interesting season.

Leicester 0 V Man 1 United

Another win for Ole and his push for the top. United won ugly after scoring early on the decided to sit on the lead and trust to create break-away goals. Unfortunately Leicester did the same until almost the end. Still , this is a good win after all Liverpool could only draw with them last week and L.Pool were at home and we were away.

I watched City 3-0 but not a good performance from City.

Liver Liverpool I think they are getting nervous ..... what Fergie used to call " Itchy Bum Time. !!!

A mediocre display from Liverpool tonight. West Ham (a team I hate, they ruined my 9th Birthday and I've never forgiven them) could have been 3-0 up at half time.

I say 3-0 because Liverpool's goal was offside by a country mile.

The linesman was watching the byline tussle involving Lallana and a couple of West Ham players in case of a tight throw-in call, so he missed the offside. Later on, Salah was called offside when he was almost through on goal when he was clearly onside. It just happens, though I hear that Liverpool are accused of gaining more than they lose over a period. Dunno. Liverpool were nervy again, and they need to keep Lallana, Keita and Matip on tbe bench and get Hendo and Gini in the midfield. Let's hope the Ox gets a game or three this season and that Joe Gomez gets well soon. West Ham did park the bus brilliantly for long stretches. A draw seemed fair in the end.

Hi

I have not been able to watch this week's matches due to a problem with my Broadband. I think the comments on refereeing are fairly common.

In my experience in playing Rugby ( both Union and League),and Cricket
Any bad decisions that tend to go to the top sides. In RU certainly their was quite a lot of politics involved as the refs were pressured to favour the top teams.

Regarding the current football situation the top 6 teams are in a tight scramble for the top positions . Any poor decisions become more important.

I was able to get to the Etiad to watch Man City comfortably beat Everton to enable them to ( temporarly ???) take top spot. Liverpool
have a game in hand to re-take the top.

I wonder what Clopp will try to take an advantage....don't think he will get away with clearing the pitch !!!!

Looking forward to both the rugby and football matches coming up. There are some mouthwatering ones as the European Championship matches start after the recent brake.

Yes, if the Canaries move up, my husband will be at Carrow Road at every opportunity to watch the top teams play against us.

Still a fair way to go Sen and say the top 10 in the Championship are pretty competitive. Sheffield United (playing one more game) took pole position last evening, being 3 goals up against Villa but Villa pulled 3 goals back in the last 8 minutes (plus extra time).

If they do go up, the next challenge would be to stay up. Since I moved to Norfolk I think they went up under Nigel Worthington (to be ended by a disastrous last game when Norwich gave up against Fulham) and under Paul Lambert.

It seems a long while since they had better stability up there. Their best seasons were in the early days of the Premiership. They did finish 3rd one year and the next, become the first English team to beat Bayern Munich on their ground in the UEFA cup but then things went wrong (and there were a few questions over the then chairman, Robert Chase and his spending policy/the clubs finances). I doubt we’ll see those days again.

As said before, on off following with me but I've often at least kept an eye on things.

Things I can't understand either Sen. A couple that stick in my mind were.

A trip to Millwall back when we lived in Kent and in the bad old days. The guy probably was an idiot being dressed in green and yellow (or at least my parents had none of us with anything identifiable) and the scene was a massive crowd chasing one person with police on horseback coming in to split things up.

Another was a Stoke supporter who seemed to thing it quite clever to nick the bobble hat from my probably about 7 tear old brother's head...


On the other hand (they won), Spurs vs Norwich league cup final where we bumped into a lot of Spurs fans on our way home was very friendly. Also and later (I didn't get to this one but other family did), Sunderland vs Norwich actually led to "The Friendship Trophy"

It can all be a bit of a mixed bag, I suppose. Once in a blue moon, I used to like going to a particular pub in a Welsh village to watch a football match. You could guarantee a lot of "piss taking" from supporters of different clubs but could be sure everything was in good fun.

Like you Jon,I reckon 'banter' and a bit of piss-taking are quite all right and can be funny.

Usually Norwich supporters are reasonably well-behaved and manageable.
There are only a few extra Police officers stationed around Carrow Road when there's a big match on.

But I believe some clubs have notoriously rumbustious supporters and a few who are downright nasty, which spoils the Game and brings it into disrepute.

Mocking opposing fans about the tragic death of a young man in an air accident is nothing short of evil though. Ignorant louts.

Ole's bubble has finally burst. Man U were ramshackle against an undistinguished PSG (apart from Thiago Silva and Di Maria). You'd better hope that Martial and Lingard are OK, because Mata has shot his bolt and Sanchez has never even had a bolt... and Pogba, grow up and behave yourself!

Hi Steve

I have have only just been able to use broadband and my landline since last Tuesday so have not been able to get any football on tv.

I was at Old Trafford last night and saw United overcome by a much more superior team. We really knew that this had to come sometime. Most of my United pals were prepared for it. We did not think they would be able to stand up to the top teams in Europe.

Philosophically perhaps last night will be a guide to our weaknesses.

Chelsea next then then Liverpool ( I think). We will have to play better than what I saw last night.

Cheers

Mike

Well I watched the first half of the Spurs match and feared the worst. I had to be sociable in the second half so could only glimpse occasionally on me silenced iPad. I was delighted with Spurs' second half performance. I've always enjoyed watching Spurs! Go, Poch!

hi Steve

I have finally ( I Hope ) got sorted out with my phones, Broadband etc.

So I was able to watch the whole match on my big TV.

You are right , the first half looked grim for Sours but the second half was completely different. Spurs took the game to Dortmund and attacked them having pressed them into making mistakes.

They were worthy of the score and they don't appear to have missed "Arry" or or Deli the belly flop merchant!!

I am licking my wounds from United's performance on Tuesday. We knew we hadn't a hope of winning the Euro Championship, but going out like that !!! without a whimper was more than disappointing.

We'l have to see how we go on against Chelsea in the FA Cup.

Cheers

Mike

Cheers

Ha! Norwich are top of their league with 63 points, and Ipswich are at the very bottom. We scored 4 goals today against Bolton. Hope this continues. :)
