weather will only be an issue for us if it's postponed. it'd be ideal to get a competitive game in before atleti midweek. for that reason i also can't see any rotation yet.

given the weather and the break, and tuesday night, i'm thinking a solid and measured 0-2. though being norwich, we could easily score 4 anyways.

Seems a long time ago when we played them last. Actually started Gomez then. Suffered the Alisson injury. And our first goal in this historic season came from a Norwich OG.
Here’s a fun way of making the time pass more quickly when you’re staring at the table: down a shot for every point we are clear
Clear of who? And if it's City, is that before or after the points deduction?

The Incredibly Interesting & Informative Guide To The City You Will Be Visiting Today
This Week The Pride of Norfolk - Norwich

Have you ever been in one of those relationships where you want to take things further but she tells you that she loves you like a brother? Well just suggest a weekend in Norfolk and all your desires will come true.. Unless of course you are from Norfolk in which case it probably is your Sister. Norfolk has long had the reputation of being the inbreeding capital of the UK probably because outsiders only ever visit once, consequently, the gene pool has very little opportunity to expand.

Being a strident feminist myself, no trip to Norwich can be complete without a visit to the Church of St Julian. Julian (a woman) was the first woman to write a book in the English language - "Sixteen Revelations of Divine Love", a book about the bible written from a feminist perspective. Very much like one of my favourite books, 50 Shades of Gray, but with far less naughty bits. St Julian's work is still studied today at Universities across the globe- the University of East Anglia offers a combined degree majoring in the existential feminist struggle of St Julian with a minor in Turkey breeding and management.

One of life's unanswerable questions is, does art imitate life or does life imitate art? Well, an answer to this age-old conundrum may be found at the very very haunted Norwich Castle. Built by William the Conqueror in 1067, recent excavations have discovered that the Castle was actually built over a Saxon burial ground containing over 100 Saxon bodies. Now, cast your minds forwards a thousand years to 1982, That years blockbuster film was Poltergeist - a film about a possessed house that had been built atop a Native American burial ground. Coincidence? I think not. It is a well known fact that building a house on top of a graveyard generally pisses off the spirits of the undead.


Famous people from Norfolk - Writer and Presenter Stephen Fry , Singer Lene Lovich, Rick Wakeman of Yes, Actor Sir John Mills, Beatles collaborator Tony Sheridan and Hugh Jackman's mum.


Perhaps the most famous character to come out of Norwich is DJ Alan Partridge. Known for his subtle and sensitive interviews he has quickly grown to be one of Britains most loved entertainers.


Chairperson of Norwich City FC, failed celebrity cook, Delia Smith generously sent the team to Blackpool this year during the mid-season break. She thought it would do the players good to ride on an open top bus at least once in their careers. Delia is, of course, best known for the way she encourages and motivates the Norwich fans. Some wise words here and something that even Mr Klopp should learn from.


So to summarise not only Norwich but also the great county of Norfolk, - It's flat, Colemans English Mustard was first invented there, they breed a lot of Turkeys. Norwich is not just a place to visit, it is a metaphor for life itself A very sad lonely and boring life but hey thats what you get when your Dad turns out to be your sister as well.

Smash those big-eared tractor driving mustard eating bastards.

Alisson
TAA Gomez VVD Robertson
Fab
Hendo Gini
Salah Firmino Ox

Subs Adrian, Mane Milner Keita, Matip Origi Lalanna

5-1

Great write up as usual, @BigJon .

Nice warm UP to MATCHDAY. I do hope this is not postponed. I'll be watching either at home or in a comfy pub. Its already raining and windy as I look out the window - and there I was contemplating to do a 5k park run - but no chance.

So we win this, go 25 points clear. 25. 25 points. Repeat that 25 points.

Crazy. And this after Man City have been found guilty of money laundering - or whatever - basically they cheated. Wake up call to all.
I do hope they get banned. Deserved.

We spent £35m on Andy Carrol and his demise hit us bad. City can spend £50m on players that just sit in the reserves and doesn't touch them. That is what all this financial doping does. Should be more of a level playing field.

As John Henry once said "He'd like to see the losing bid" - with one of their sponsorship deals.

And us Reds, we march on. Business end of the season, And what a season.

Love it. Lets do this.

Do I get the impression PL are edging their bets, to get this game played, hoping the bad weather will allow Norwich will beat us, just for a story...I know its up to the home club and safety reasons, but I still think the PL are hoping we don't carry on our run....(end of rant).
No, they aren't.

This is the most important game of the season, well at least it will be until the next one. It's an absolutely must win game.

For my part, in the continued spirit of brevity, and a desire to avoid the imperspicuous, I shall not be making precipitate judgments on the basis of temporary reactions with regards to PGMOL's appointed match officials, nor shall I comment on the likely performance of stuart "codder" atwell, or paul "pie-eater" tierney.

And, such is my desire to avoid any repeat of the recent opprobrium, rather than pen a lengthy discourse regarding Regina Icenorum's comments vis a vis our team's forthcoming sojourn at the disused east anglian chalk pit, that is the abode of the blessed delia of the moet, I shall instead confine my musings to an epigrammatic, if somewhat eliptic precis of Lawro's prognostications.

For Lawro, in similar fashion, has abjured obscuity and declared that he "just don't see the canaries causing Liverpool ... problems" which apart from being positively Dickension, is, when coupled with his prediction of a two nil win to us, clearly intended to carpe jugulum, and not just any jugulum, but our jugulum at that.

Hopefully his attempted kiss of death won't throw a spanner in the works and upset the apple-cart. :rolleyes:

I'll take a scrappy 1-0 win to us. :oops:

That cheered me up no end. I've been down in the dumps since I heard the shockingly disappointing news yesterday that our rivals who I'd always thought were honourable people who played the game in the Corinthian spirit of fair play, might have a skeleton in the cupboard or two. I expected better of them.

A very good post @Lowton_Red. Although it does take me a lot longer to read because I have to look up the meaning of so many words.

I really like Norwich. They are a decent club with a good manager. I can't really say that, I feel bad. Can't we say, we hope you stay and Man City go down?
If City are going to get the deserved PUNISHMENT all were years ago crying About then Norwich get relegated too, then City may start thinking they got no Chance to go up in Championship cause the likes of Norwich ll get the better of them. That is what i m hopping for
