Get Gary Lineker in, he thinks he has the answer to everything football related or not. Surprised he is not our new Prime Minister.

I certainly hope we don't appoint Lampard, sacked at Chelsea, sacked at Everton and since going back to Chelsea 1 win in 11 games. Good player but I've never been impressed with him as a manager.

I assume Admiral Muskwe didn't impress.

Wright-Phillips was released by Stoke in May.

I watched the game on ITV and was amused after our fine equaliser by Palmer who had only just come on when the commentator said "Gareth Southgate you genius". This would be the same genius who picked our worst player, Harry Kane, for every match. How many games were we losing when he was subbed and things only improved afterwards?
Spain deserved their victory and were the best team in the tournament but their second goal was disappointing as the player on the left wing who laid on the pass was in acres of space when he received the ball and we had no chance of stopping him getting his pass away.

Is the club "miffed" that we are working out the names of the trialists?

Who is this "Magalore" of whom you speak?
        We have a new player called Magalore
        His parents came over from Bangalore
        He's now a crock
        'cos he's taken a knock
        He can dance the fandango no more

McGowan off to Tranmere??
        Aaron our captain of vice
        Is said to be off in a trice
        He wears his heart on his sleeve
        But if he's going to leave
        Memories of him will be nice

Wrexham want Guthrie
        Wrexham are keen on our Jon
        I hope he won't soon be gone
        They may have big bucks
        But they can get f**ked
        We don't want our Jon moving on

Where is Evers
        What has happened to our friend Everbrite
        I am hoping that he is alright
        This board's not the same
        Without our member of fame
        Get on your keyboard and write

        Sorry, I've nothing to do
        And after downing quite a few
        I was feeling quite sick
        So wrote limericks
        But now I am off to the loo

With apologies to all of our great poets

I see that Springett played the 2nd half for Norwich, how did he do?
9  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Norwich City (h) Pre-Season 13th July on: July 13, 2024, 13:41:09 pm
McGowan, Brough, Sowerby, McGeehan, Wilson and Eaves not involved.
10  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Summer Transfer Rumour Thread 2024 on: July 12, 2024, 22:43:50 pm
Pete O’Rourke obviously new of Tom Eaves impending transfer as he told that Eaves was having his medical on Thursday before joining us.

But Alan Hansen said "you don't win anything with kids"

As he has left "by mutual consent" no fee would be required but he must now be 1 of our highest earners, thank you Nigel for giving the budget a boost. I wonder if that had been done earlier how many of the 3 leaving players would still be here if they had been made a slightly better offer.
13  The Hotel End / Other Football & Sport / Re: VAR on: July 12, 2024, 12:02:54 pm
But the referees apply different rules for incidents inside and outside the penalty area, they give free kicks for holding but how often do you see a penalty given for all of the grappling that goes on in the penalty area?  Listening to other peoples views and looking at other posts I would say 90% of people think it wasn't a penalty.
14  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Summer Transfer Rumour Thread 2024 on: July 12, 2024, 11:56:38 am
A couple of comments from the Rotherham forum both saying division 1 is his level, 1 saying he will score a lot of goals the other saying double figures.
15  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Summer Transfer Rumour Thread 2024 on: July 11, 2024, 12:56:31 pm
Sit back and relax, when there is something to report he will do so.

If that penalty had been given against the Cobblers we would all be up in arms and JB would definitely received a yellow card if not a red one. I don't see how the defender can challenge for the ball without his studs showing and although it may have been given as a foul elsewhere on the pitch the same could be said in other instances. Defenders in the box regularly are holding attackers with both arms wrapped around them and get away with it but elsewhere on the pitch they are penalised. Referees should instruct teams that they will give penalties for holding in the box and enforce it and it would soon eradicate it.

Last night the referee did not give the penalty, the linesman did not flag for for the penalty, the commentator and his summarisers said no penalty, the adjudicator they went to said no penalty and I understand Linaker and Neville on the other side said it was not a penalty. I think the Dutch have every right to feel aggrieved.

Spain are clearly the best team in the competition but historically we have had the better of them with 13 wins, 4 draws and 10 defeats. since the turn of the century only 9 games with 4 wins each.

I see Kane was our lowest rated player and he has had a poor tournament. Once again Saka gets to the byline cuts the ball back into the area and Kane is not even close, this happened several times in the previous game but I expect he will be selected again for the final. It is no good saying "but he scored the penalty" as Super Sam has a better penalty conversion rate than Kane but he is not in the team. As was shown in the previous game we have plenty of players capable of scoring from the spot and each of those 5 were better penalties than Kanes.

We have to be on top of our game and hope Spain are a bit below par if we are going to come out on top.

Got lucky with the penalty, only reason I can see why it was given was for studs up but they had to be challenging for the ball at that height. We really ought to go on and win this, they are giving us the midfield and funnelling back to their own goal. Then they try to win our balls into the box and counter attack. I'm not very impressed with the Netherlands.
19  The Hotel End / Other Football & Sport / Re: England at the Euros 2024 on: July 10, 2024, 11:19:35 am
Spain certainly look well ahead of us, last nights game should have been the final.
20  The Hotel End / Other Football & Sport / Re: England at the Euros 2024 on: July 09, 2024, 18:50:53 pm
Since the turn of the century we have played the Netherlands 9 times and won 1.
