I think a lot of the resentment came from the transfer request last summer, of course his goalscoring form suffered under Hughton's tactics so that didn't help. For me he's up there with Malky Mackay and Darren Huckerby, we'd be stupid to let him go, even if we did bring in another top striker.

I hope we keep hold of Becchio and really give him a chance next season. He only got the odd few minutes here and there but I think he'll be an asset for us. His link up play with Howson for the last goal vs West Brom was great. There are people saying he was a panic buy but I don't believe a word of that.

Ah Darren Huckerby, I haven't heard that name for a while.

I see Becchio being kept around only for Hughton to realise he doesn't need him mid-September and emergency loan him to a Championship team (Middlesbrough would be nice).

Never have I seen a player try so many runs, easily the most exciting player I've seen in a Norwich shirt. It's a shame the super direct, pacey winger has been going out of the game. That being said we actually have a pair of twins in our development side that share a lot of his attributes, only 17 so I won't build them up that far but there's potential.

If he's not getting games and we stay up next season I guess a Championship side will be picking up a bargain.

I see a name I don't recall in the race for the Everton job. Ralf Rangnick. I hope he gets the job based on the fact his name sounds like a 70s porn star.

Also I wish I could see this as a good idea. It hasn't even been confirmed and I'm already having premonitions of Tommy Smith going through the back of RvW and taking him out for 6 months.

We arranged a friendly against nearby Hartlepool recently, we're like good chums rather than rivals though so it's all good. Having a friendly against a rival is almost as odd as arranging a friendly against a team in the same league.

I see Victor Valdes has said he is leaving Barcelona due to the pressures of playing for them. Last time I checked he wasn't exactly the vital squad member every Barcelona fan looked at for success.

It would probably be a nice little earner but the risks outweigh that for me. That being said if it goes ahead I'll still go and watch.

I wonder if he'll be linked to Arsenal, like every other goalkeeper in the world.

I don't understand why we need a new keeper, Szczesny is fine thanks. We're better of using the money elsewhere.

It will spark reports of Reina going back to Barcelona again. Would it be ridiculous to suggest Brad Jones might soon be Liverpool's first choice keeper?

Arsenal should have an interesting summer, Wenger might finally spend now Fergie has been retired to have a shot at the title.

To take a step forward I think Arsenal really have to change that wage structure. 4th is the best they can hope for until they do.

Nothing happening in my part of the football world. I hate it.

Da Speshul 1 returns to Chelski. I guess that's good.

What I've heard is this: Valdes -> Monaco, Reina -> Barcelona, Suarez -> hell (well no, but not staying at England), Liverpool -> Championship :P

Certainly going to be interesting next year, with the top 3 all changing managers. I can see Pellegrini taking time to settle in, so City probably won't win.
As a United fan I'd love it if all the rumours surrounding Ronaldo come true (Except the ones that claim he'd come to Chelsea to be with Mourinho - he hates him just like the rest ), it'd certainly make Moyes' job a lot easier having a guy who's scored 201 in 199 for Madrid since leaving us. And it'd also most likely cripple Spurs as Ronaldo would command a high fee, most of which would be spent on Bale - even if he doesn't want to go, Daniel Levy's got a short-termist streak that would see £80million > building a team around the only player in the PL who really compares to Ronaldo.

Fabregas is apparently looking more and more likely to return to Arsenal? Depending on the size of Arsene's war chest I can see this happening. Would be good for the competitiveness of the league too, although United are also interested I think he'd go back to London for guaranteed playing time. Him combining with Wilshere and Santi Cazorla'd make one hell of midfield trio.

Also, did anyone see the England/Brazil game? Rooney's goal reminded me of that first one against Arsenal...really hope Moyes manages to keep him, although Kagawa would be limited stuck out on the wing for another season. Benitez-style squad rotation would be required :P


...and if you've made it this far - ever found it funny how Arsenal's manager is called Arsene? I have.

Some very interesting potential moves there, Amore. I think Ronaldo return, but it will be a few years down the line. A Fabregas return I can see happening as I doubt he gets as much notice at Barcelona in comparison to Arsenal, but I'm not sure if the Arsenal fans will be happy about it.

It used to be even funnier when they had Arshavin. I also liked it when Man United had an Angolan player called Manucho, I never personally refer to United as 'Man U' due to its connotations, but seeing as how everyone else refers to them as that it was quite good at the time.

Returns for the likes of Fabregas and Ronaldo can only be good for the league, I hope they happen.

I watched the first half but it was too depressing so I switched it off. Felt a little silly when I looked at the score later on.

Any Liverpool fans here?
I'm really worried about what will happen this transfer window. I hope we get good replacements for those who leave.

I hope Liverpool sign Diego Capel. Even if it is only to make these silly rumours on the Norwich forums go away.

No idea why the Norwich fans want him so much.

I go from complete hatred of Liverpool to thinking their alright at times. I'm managing them on Football Manager at the moment so I guess I'm in the alright phase at the moment.

Another Boro return might be happening after Woodgate & Parnaby last season, we're rumoured to be after David Wheater if anyone is aware of who he is. Considering how Woodgate & Parnaby have performed in this spell for us, I'm going to be a bit pessimistic about this one if it comes off.

Not a fan of Liverpool, mainly because they protect Suarez no matter what he does. I don't want him in the EPL as his attitude is so horrible and I have never disliked a football player more than him.

The only reason Liverpool don't want to get rid of him, is because they know they will slump to the middle, lower middle of the table, that is the reality. But, I can't see him being there come the end of the transfer window.

I remember seeing him and thinking we had a potential England player when he first came through actually. Can't say I've seen him recently but I'm sure you could do worse than Wheater.

He has a pretty poor injury record as well which is the last thing we need really, but hopefully if it happens he comes in handy.

I completely agree about Suarez. But just like they did with Suarez after Torres, I think they'll find some new world class attacker to pull up their average team.

With Woodgate already in the squad that could backfire quite badly then.

It goes far beyond Woodgate. For the past two seasons we've had various players in and out of the team with injury problems even if they aren't injury prone like Woodgate, it must be something to do with the training regime or the physios.

Recently, Kevin Thomson who we released in January complained we played him for a while with an undiagnosed broken leg.

Undiagnosed broken leg, ok, I laughed a little.

Rumours of Keisuke Honda joining Norwich. Silly season pls end.

Haha, Honda and Van Wolfswinkel...can't tell if they're going for silly names or actually building a team that'll throw them into the Europa League spots next season (above Liverpool obviously). And undiagnosed broken leg? Hope Honda's a physio as well as a player, sounds like you have problems there...but how did he not know there was something up? I guess these lower quality players can't do self-diagnosis like Casillas, Pepe and Ronaldo when getting out of Mourinho's last game :P
Training regime? Likely explanation is there isn't one and you have fitness coaches who were around when England won the World Cup, getting the players to do laps 365 days/year.

Speaking of Liverpool...despise them. Partially as a United fan, although I admire Gerrard and Carragher. And I did support them against Milan when they were last in Champions League finals (just the done thing isn't it? Supporting the team from your country). But the way they've handled Suarez is just shocking. I know Ferdinand's hardly been a saint (I couldn't help but lol at the "choc-ice" comments) but we've never come out as practically condoning the behaviour. Although they're less annoying than John Terry, when the full kit ****** came out in the Europa League Final I started yelling at the t.v. telling him to get off the pitch etc. Should've escorted him away instead of Torres' little follower.

I think you have the wrong idea on the teams I and Lapras support based on the Honda physio comment. :P

Anyway, you complaining about Terry has reminded me that the John Terry meme should've returned following his kit wearing at the Europa League Final. Found a nice and funny round up of it all. Link

Possibly yes. I had no idea who Woodgate played for, so I was just guessing.
But if you were talking about Middlesborough with the "undiagnosed broken leg" then it's the north, what do you expect? We don't believe in injuries, that's just not being 100% :P

Some of those JT jokes are brilliant, haha.
