Brilliant signing if that's true. Instantly becomes their best player. A boyhood Toon fan signing for the Mackems though, you're a AJ.

Poor move for him personally though (no bias).

Re: 2012-13 Football Transfer Discussion Thread

6.5m for Azpilicueta is a fucking steal, fantastic piece of business there by Chelsea. Although with the form Ivanovic is in at the moment, I'm not sure if he'll go straight into the starting eleven. I remember being very impressed with him back when he was at Osasuna, to be honest I can't believe neither of the big two in Spain snapped him up, he's miles better than Arbeloa imo.

Arsenal being back in for M'Vila is good news, especially with Song departing, Jack being a crock and Ramsay being shite, we need somebody in the middle of the park. I haven't seen that much of him but I trust Wenger's judgement when it comes to judging talent and getting a good price for him, it's his selling policy I'm iffy on.

I realise where they're going and that WWE will push Roman Reigns straight to the top. However for me, Dean Ambrose is by far the most talented in that group and I think eventually if they just give him the spotlight then he's going to shine. As soon as he touches a mic everyone else can just sit down as he's magic on it. So It remains to be seen, I think they're all talented but to me Dean was the star of that group. I think Roman looks like the star of that group but I don't think he's nearly as talented as Dean.

In all honesty you're better off asking the opinion of a Crystal Palace (where he had a very modest scoring record) fan because he hasn't played much for Norwich, probably due to the fact that he's ALWAYS FUCKING INJURED!

I'll be suprised if you get a full season out of him. He's a very up and at 'em style player, most of his injuries have come from overzealous comedy tackles that he has made without really needing to.

Easily Paul Lambert's worst signing (unless he comes back transformed, I won't hold my breath) at Norwich, especially for 2.5 million. I's a shame you're not taking him on a perm, but who would take the risk of signing such an injury prone player full time? Only us!

Vaughan could easily be PL standard if he can get a run going. I always preferred him over Anichebe when they both broke through.

I always had high hopes for him and was gutted when he was sold to Norwich. It's a shame, he's not injury prone in the sense of Michael Owen pulls the same hamstring every weekend, Vaughan during his time at Everton dislocated a collarbone, severed a foot artery, and a tear in the cartilage and so forth.

Surely this has to be the year he doesn't get something like that and truly kicks on.

Re: 2012-13 Football Transfer Discussion Thread

What makes you think that Mozza? Other than having electric pace the guy is very ordinary. Even Crystal Palace fans didn't rate him that highly and they're in the championship!

I know that most fans have a tendency to get carried away with their own team's youth products and I think it may be a case of that.

Vaughan needs to improve his technique and not just his reliability if he's to make at the top as far as I can see.

Don't know how accurate that is but as a Chelsea fan. meh. If we are still in market for another striker, would much prefer Cavani or Falao (particuarly) not that I think we will get either.

To be completely honest, mate, you are quite possibly right.

It was just exciting seeing somebody with the pace he had be willing to chase everything down like an over-excited puppy. Also his first goal for Everton as a 16 y.o showed his strikers instinct to get between the defence and keeper and finish. Plus he had a good record for the England unders, he was just a top prospect, he is still only 24 so it's not to late for the lad to turn it around.

I just feel sorry the lad mainly, he showed so much potential for us that whenever he got going he was out for the next 3-6 months and it set him straight back to where the beginning.

Re: 2012-13 Football Transfer Discussion Thread

I think the over-excited puppy thing is his biggest problem, it's what has led to his series of knee injuries with us so far. He crocks himself by going in to hard challenges rashly and is way too enthusiastic when making his comebacks from injury, usually leading to strains due to a lack of fitness.

Also, never go by youth level records. Youth football (usually) means nothing in the grand scheme of things. That's not to say that it's a useless exercise and the stars of tommorow can't be spotted at that level, but it's not a consistent guarantee of success down the line.

As for breaking out as a young star, do you not remember Franny Jeffers? Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice...

In other Norwich news, we've just signed Alexander Tettey from Rennes on a two year deal. He's a Norwegian midfielder, other than that I know the best part of fuck all about him. Hopefully a chant will be worked around a tea based advert for him.

All kicking off. Moses apparently moved now, Johnson to Sunderland.
